The onset of PM Turnbull with Scott Morrison as Treasurer, then PM Morrison with Josh Frydenberg as Treasurer, saw a number of warning signs:
Budgets and Mid-Year Economic & Financial Outcomes processes no longer contain agency-to-Parliament-negotiated "pipelines" nor "budget repair", even though professional submissions contain high-return solutions - all rejected by the Tin Soldiers.
Practical outcomes include failed projects (e.g. CLARA, Newcastle and Kembla Ports, and the earlier precursor Sydney CBD & Eastern Suburbs tram), massive waste, refusal to repair (leading to critical engineering defects in the nation's two largest projects), and cruelty and cowardice.
Morrison went through a series of failed "stimulus" episodes and is still going down the madcap path of guessing and not assessing alternative "options" and Performance Indicators.
The solution to COVID-19 and economic stimulus crisis will not come from continuing confusion and anarchy. In that respect, the poor handling of the bushfires and sports rorts have a strong similarity to the three, soon four, rounds of slow, unfocussed gifting cycles.
The options promulgated on this site and in reports are backed up by sub-options such as $50k to SMEs who managed to go through the crisis, e.g. pubs with take-aways business, but which still face the post-pandemic realities.
Morrison has already shown his sneaky way many times so his July deadline is constrained by his lack of listening and understanding regional revival, which I do but his coal jackals don't.
