IT'S GUESS The Budget Season. Journalists speculate wildly about cutbacks, turning rumours into alarmist headlines. Then they say to avoid the resulting fear, the Government should reveal the Budget sooner.

But if it was released in November the rumours would start in October. Publish it in October, the speculation would start in September.

How about they stop writing rumours? Would they prefer if we published next year's Budget this year? What a pity we need to wait for expenses and receipts from one year before we can plan for the next. Then we could write Budgets years in advance.
