It all sounds really good, as long as it all stays in balance, so there's no debt.

That is a lot of money. I have been finding it hard, sleeping in my car. Give me six months and I would have more of an idea of the difference it will make.

It all looks positive, good stuff. I hope some of the health funding goes towards addressing addictions.

I'm not unhappy. Most recipients were pretty deserving.

It's everything I wanted to see, but whether it can meet the promises is another question.

I was homeless, but I have seen big changes in the last few months. Improvements. Businesses, the council, the community are doing more. I still think there's not enough funding for state houses though.

There were no surprises in it. There was less for health than I expected. There was no relief for the middle class, employers, and people training apprentices. No incentives for them to continue doing that.
