What ever happened to the content of the Budget being a closely guarded secret?
There are sound reasons for this. Nothing in the budget is official until it is announced and by its nature the content can have dramatic effects of things like share prices, commodities etc. Getting early sight of some or all of the budget's content could give a company or individual a financial advantage.
Also the budget is a complete system, one proposal needs to be paid for with another, there is always some good news for some and some bad news for others. Selectively releasing the good bits is fundamentally dishonest.
But it seems that the desire to for this government to eek out whatever good headlines that they can from this budget overrides any of the long held reasons for secrecy.
