Awash with cash

The government is awash with cash , so det your self for a lolly scramble in election year.

Cullen told manufacturers at his traditional pre-Budget speech in Christchurch yesterday that the latest figures from the Treasury indicated the Government would begin the new financial year with a large cash surplus ? not a deficit, as was forecast this time last year.

He would not reveal the size of the surplus but said for the first time that the level was becoming politically unsustainable.

Jesus, it must be fricken humungous for it to be politically unsustainable even for Cullen.?
