Budget 2010: Slowly the facts emerges

From an interview with the Telegram (not online) here’s a telling little statement from finance minister Tom Marshall:

He said corporate and personal income taxes may be "softer than originally anticipated."

That’s true.  Incidentally he meant the revenue coming from the taxes, not that there were plans to reduce taxation.

Corporate and personal income taxes may not be the only thing that is “softer than anticipated” this year.
