Gotta be a good thing coming out of Aussie that the country will not have to spend as much on COVID 19 social security payments. Figures were wrong from treasury and the ATO to the govt and now a saving of 60 billion dollars we don’t have to borrow. But is at least budgeted if needed later.
There are already those in politics making a negative out of this positive.

There's a new video from Australian Ambassador McKinnon concerning repatriation flights from Thailand to Australia that might be of interest to those from that neck of the world. I believe it's from 22 May. It should be available on the embassy link.

Yes Barney, the miscalculation is a great result for our national economy. It is funny watching the firestorm coming from the opposition leader. Emphasis on the whether the glass is either half full or half empty should default to whether the glass can be refilled and on this occasion it has certainly been refilled. The next step should be targeting national infrastructure projects that will reinvigorate employment which will support those who have lost their jobs as a result of the COVID pandemic.
