TBS Likes is a strange place where anything goes. Like International Waters, or Christmas morning after the shine has worn off and the booze has kicked in. May the ugliness commence.

Last night: Who got the best of the budget’s loving?

Approx Reading Time-10What a night. Our heads were swimming with the romance of possibilities, and some of us did some things we didn’t want to do. So, who got the most out of the budget?




As we remove the thin layer of crust from our eyes, and the last of idealistic slumbers drains from our system, we evaluate the snoozing, foreign figure in our bed, their hairy limbs hung over ours in sentimental attachment following last night’s developments. Whichever way you want to cut it, the budget happened. Accept it. The only thing left to do is figure out for whom among us this morning’s bed-haired journey to work is one of sated curiosity, and for whom it is a walk of shame.






The Coalition expect the budget to return to surplus in 2021, with the current deficit standing at $24B, which of course means we might call them again for another date, and this time, perhaps kiss them with the light on.

Although, Coalition, you should know that this doesn’t mean we’re easy. We’re willing to give you a chance, but don’t hurt us. And don’t do these nice things unless you plan to stay.

Might text you tomorrow.
