I am so sad about the budget. My level of upset is so deep, in fact, that I have no room to be angry or annoyed. I just feel overwhelmingly pained by the decisions that have been made. All these cuts and taxes and extra costs aren’t even going to affect me that greatly, either. There is also a likelihood that in 2(ish) years time things will be somewhat different with a new government and budget that surely couldn’t be worse. The ‘thing’ is, this budget is contradictory, seemingly uninformed, and hardly beneficial. Even the winners in this budget aren’t really winning - they’re simply better off than others. Which isn’t hard, because the others are, more or less, fucked.
