    The budget proves the point.

    Where is the public comments from the business community about the increased cost of doing business? Supporting the airport redevelopment caused a minimum $20m reduction in government revenues.

    Note that the maximum payroll tax is now 19%!!

    It also looks as thought government is not paying the full sinking fund contribution this year. Are the numbers being ‘fuzzied’ to show a more rosy picture?
