The Coalition is so ideology driven they failed to recognise opportunity in this budget. There is a golden opportunity to tap into the rapid and non productive share trading (speculating) with a simple 1% tax on financial transactions. Their current budget measures will not get through the senate as they are - which is probably a good thing. In retrospect, the John Howard majority in both houses was the seed that gave rise to a too radical workchoices, loss of Government and a licence for Labor to wind back workplace reform. A more moderate workchoices (wrought by a more moderate senate) may have kept the Howard Government intact, and avoided the last 7 yrs of terrible government.
