But, but, but...

"Tories brace for deficit, plan to share blame."

I sincerely hope the opposition is more skilled than to fall into this trap. I hope. Policies such as the GST cut, spending the surplus and massive spending increases on top of these moves are solely the Conservatives' to wear. If we're on the brink of a deficit, it's policies like these that have put us in this position.

Where's all that strong leadership the nation was sold? If you read this report, the Conservative strategy sounds like a lot of shirking and you-first kind of manoeuvring.
A Conservative MP made it clear what political tack the government would take if forced back into the red. When asked whether he expected a deficit the MP smiled and replied: "Only if the opposition agrees."
There you go...
