Ecocnomy gets better- "Bugger" says Government

This report says such things as
Higher than expected tax income has contributed to the Government's books showing a lower operating deficit.
The operating deficit, including gains and losses, is at $1.4 billion, which is $1.1 billion better than forecast.

Which translated by my wife means "they did around 40% better than they thought they would so they won't have to cut services as much as they thought. Except that they want to"
That is what it comes down to, this government has presented itself as beyond ideology, just careful stewards and,"heck things are tough, for the good of the country we have to cut back, a bit."
We shall see, of course and await the reasons, noting that Bill English, the Deputy-head Brigand has said
He says the Budget will respond to a report on changing the tax system which he says is a powerful tool for changing spending and investment decisions.
Or, in another way "We still have to reward our rich friends and find new ways to soak the poor."
