Imagine ... a federal Treasurer who looks like Ned Kelly and fights for justice. Instead, we have Joe in his classy suits, with designer cigars and a full head of hair, looking like a right-wing ideologue from a private school who is out of touch with the real world; a lawyer or a banker or a politician, or all three.

Joe Hockey shows the political awareness of Marie Antoinette in perpetuating lazy cliches about people receiving welfare payments.

The harsh measures in the budget were directed towards one overwhelming objective: getting the budget back into surplus without increasing taxes to do it. Indeed, Joe Hockey is working towards the day when he can start cutting income tax.

There is something quite odd about the annual NAPLAN tests. Children from most of the odd years – 3, 5, 7 and 9 – troop into school rooms and halls to complete a test that oddly ignores most of what they study at school.

The Sydney Botanic Gardens and Domain, while a gift from governors Phillip and Macquarie to the people of Sydney, is of its essence, a gift of nature.
