“This year they say, ‘don’t worry about that we’ve got plenty of money, in fact, we can give you $140 billion worth of tax cuts, but not until six years and seven years time’.

“Now that is a long way away and everywhere I go Alan, people tell me how cynical they are about this approach that somehow the government knows exactly, to the last dollar, what they can afford to give in tax cuts in six or seven years.
