In distressing scenes from Canberra, little Scotty Morrison of Class 3G (aka ‘the House of Representatives’) has left his 2018 Federal Budget on the school bus - and now only has twenty minutes to hand it in, or he’ll get a demerit!
When Scott woke up today, he was excited, with a big, wide grin on his face. Today was the day he would unveil what he’s been working so very hard on - his budget. He’d spent the last few nights dreaming of fiscal responsibility, tax cuts, and infrastructure spending.
Even after three cups of warm milk, he couldn’t get to bed till 11pm last night!
After eating his toast and orange juice, Lil’ ScoMo grabbed his backpack, and stuffed the budget inside, giggling as he did so. Today was going to be a great day! The sun was shining, the budget was done, and Mr. Turnbull was going to call him ‘champ’ in front of the whole class.
But in his excitement today, bounding off the Canberra Parliament bus shouting ‘jobs and growth!’ poor Scott has found himself in a pickle. He left all the budget on the bus!
Scott tried very, very hard to remember the budget, but there were so many big numbers and talking points. He can’t possibly remember it in time - he has to find it!
In 20 minutes, Scotty is due to give a big, big speech on the Budget. But will he make it in time? And will his acid reflux from the orange juice play up? Find out in one hour on The Obiter.
