10.1 billion capital spend is largest ever in a budget, to be allocated to schools, homes and transport infrastructure - promising, but no mention yet on where this fits in low carbon transition.
@Paschald is finally on to #climatechange... Announcing EUR 7.50 incr to #carbontax to EUR 33/t. #Budget2020 increased it by EUR 6.

Last night’s #budget2020 did not include a single cent of funding towards the establishment of a Federal anti-corruption commission, despite the Morrison government promising to establish one since December 2018 #AusPol
Just over a year ago the #Greens Federal ICAC passed the @AuSenate with only the Morrison government voting against it. If there was any desire to establish a Federal #ICAC from the Morrison government they would have brought our bill on for a vote, but they still haven’t #AusPol
In February of this year, the @AuSenate again voted to compekl the Morrison government to bring on our #ICAC bill for a vote in the House of Reps. Again, nothing happened #AusPol

We are calling for a $500m national #EdibleGardening fund as a necessary and urgent investment in public and community #health to be co-financed by Federal, State and Territory governments.

We’re in a national emergency, and we must respond accordingly. #urbanagriculture
Dietary-related ill-health and mental illness cost Australia around $200 bn every year.

With COVID-19 and the climate emergency, these costs will rise and more will experience #hunger and #foodinsecurity. In a country as wealthy as #Australia, there is no excuse for this.
The levels of food poverty and dietary-related ill-health amongst #FirstNations communities are a matter of national shame.

Edible gardening has immense power to do good, as our national #PandemicGardening survey showed.

(1/10) Any entry level democracy in recession would dial down their expensive addiction to pricey island detention centres. But not Australia. (thread) #auspol
(2/10) As PM wouldn't you just cut up Peter Dutton's credit card and say no? "You can't have the full 'My lil Azkaban' set because we need groceries". But no. Not Australia. And apparently not Scott Morrison.
(3/10) Last night's #Budget2020 includes a spend of another $55m on Christmas Island. Over $180m has already been spent on that centre in the last year, but the largesse has not incl giving the #hometobilo kids their own beds. A family of 4 have had to share a bed for 13 months.

This is a deeply ideological budget. It rewards the Morrison government's friends, and punishes perceived enemies. #Budget2020
Tens of billions will be given to big business, and to high-income earners. Wealthy men will get the bulk of the benefit. The poor, the unemployed, women, and those working in sectors the government doesn’t ideologically favour will get little.
The centrepiece of the budget is a massive give-away to business. The Morrison government has rewarded its backers in the private sector with huge subsidies, in the form of asset write-offs and tax “carry-backs” (in other words, government hand-outs).

Watching Australia's #Budget2021 is a stark and unnerving reminder of how the country is catastrophically ignoring the opportunities and immediate benefits of climate action, and choosing to worsen pre-existing problems instead.
Ctrl + f "climate" #Budget2021
- Building energy efficient homes, decoupling them from relying on fossil gas? Nope.

- Building public transport and active transport, and decarbonising cars? Nope

- Investing in the deployment of clean energy? Nope

Does the climate crisis exist, to them? Nope.

Josh Frydenberg has just stood up to spruik his post-COVID budget.

Spoilers: it will prolong the recession, fuel the climate crisis, and leave young people behind.

Wondering what this trickle-down disaster means for you?

A #Budget2020 thread
To save you the wait:

❌JobSeeker is slashed.

❌Millionaires get tax cuts.

❌Young people get insecure work.

❌Gas donors get cash that should be going to schools and hospitals.

#Budget2020
JobMaker is a recipe for temporary, casual, low wage exploitative work.

Big corporations like McDonalds will be rubbing their hands together.

Instead, we need a job guarantee for young people, with decent wages and secure work.

THREAD on income tax cuts - the govt will trumpet the green column which gives a rolled up figure, but what's really going on is the yellow column is a one-off boost in 2020-21, and pink is the permanent increase.
#auspol #Budget2021
Notice something? Green makes it look like everyone is about $2K better off. Yellow reveals middle income earners are getting a ONE-OFF boost in 2020-21; and PINK shows the RICH are getting the biggest cuts.
#auspol #Budget2021
Why does this happen? Because for people earning $48K-90K the threshold changes only compensates for loss of low to middle income tax offset. So the middle are only ahead in 2020-21 because in that year they get BOTH.

Today, @HouseNGR Speaker, Rep. @femigbaja, @NGRSenate President @DrAhmadLawan & the Leadership of the National Assembly met with the Minister of Finance, Budget & National Planning to be briefed on the plan to amend the N10.59 trillion 2020 budget passed by in December last year. ImageImage
In his remarks, the Speaker called on the Federal Government to adopt a feasible benchmark in the proposed amendment to #Budget2020.
“The benchmark is so critical, once you passed the law, it becomes difficult to adjust that benchmark, and then what happens to the excess?” ImageImage
“We’ve always had problems with the ECA, potentially an account which has no backing of the law. So, let’s even assume that price remains static at $35, it means $10 is going to the ECA which we have no control over in terms of spending, it’s why we guard that benchmark jealously Image

Predictable and also that framing has to change.

THREAD: Tomorrow's #RebuildingTogether Budget will be a defining moment for New Zealand, and for Jacinda Ardern's Govt because it will have impacts for generations to come.

We're looking for Govt to prioritise future-ready projects over 'shovel-ready' in the Covid recovery Budget. With unprecedented sums on the table, we have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get a jump on the other existential crises we face.
Jobs are a priority, but they need to be created in the right industries. We need more people working in growth areas like renewable energy, sustainable transport and #regenerativeagriculture, which have a clear future in a post-#Covid19 world.

The coronavirus is showing #Nigeria up in a big way.

Government revenues have entered the toilet and are unlikely to come out soon.

So much so that @NigeriaGov wants to seize #COVIDー19 donations and use them to fund #budget2020 bit.ly/2WsoeaR
The move to divert #COVIDー19 donations to #budget2020 is rather shortsighted if you think about it, but here we are, and it is all as a result of government laziness and it shows that all the talk of wanting to diversify the economy is nonsense.
The numbers bear this out, #Nigeria's economy is already diversified.

Oil is 7.32% of GDP.
Agric is 21.2%.
Industry outside oil is 18.5%.
Services are 52%.

I wrote in detail about it in today's @BusinessDayNg bit.ly/3borhoz

Undoubtedly, #GE2019 was a shock. To an extent, Cummings & co seemed to have found a magic formula (and a slogan). But look how short lived it was. The last couple of days have been a case study of how out of touch the @Conservatives are in reality. Three big signs: (1/5)
1. The idea that you could, as the Government, advise people to avoid pubs etc, whilst pulling the rug from under the owners. The sheer arrogance to think that small business people would be ok with being abandoned & fobbed off with the most woeful #Budget2020 measures. (2/5)
2. Ignoring completely the fact that small businesses are not just one-person operations, as if it was the Apprentice, but collectively the employers of millions. Whole Government response to #Corvid19uk ignored the workers, because to the @Conservatives, they hardly exist. (3/5)
