"A simple, authoritative, even human account"

Wayne Swan's Post-Budget address to the National Press Club

The text is here.

"The speech wasn't perfect. But it gave us a simple and authoritative, even human account of what's been going on, all this time. It's impossible not to respect the hard work that both Kevin Rudd and Swan have put in since this whole mess started. But too often they miss the opportunities to bring people along with them; to explain simply these vast decisions to the very voters in whose name they are made." -
