The Civilian’s Budget

did its own take on the Budget. Some highlights:

  • $1.7 billion to buy back Mighty River Power after Tony Ryall began missing it.
  • $1 billion to build roads that go around Hamilton instead of through it.
  • $64 for Bill English to get his printer fixed.
  • $500 in legal fees for Colin Craig.
  • $800 million to Gore, just to see what happens.
  • $30,000 for production of Air New Zealand safety video starring Maurice Williamson.
  • $170,000 for undercover double agent speech writer for David Shearer.
  • $20,000 to figure out why a McDonald’s deluxe cheeseburger costs less than a regular one.
  • $250 million to make the transformers in the national grid look more like the ones in the movie Transformers.

I especially like the $800 million for Gore, as an experiment.
