From the man who criticises the Labor government of economic spending, comes the metaphor, you need to treat the federal budget like a household budget – but refuses to answer questions about his second mortgage.
Tony Abbott’s wife, Mrs Abbott, describes taking out that second mortgage:
She conceded that the family, who took out a $710,000 mortgage against their Sydney home when Mr Abbott’s pay was slashed after the 2007 election,could have done with a second incomewhen their three daughters were young. But she had no regrets about her years as a stay-at-home mum.

So even on their pay, which would have put Tony Abbott in the top 1% of Australian income earners, they still failed to manage their household finances.
And this man wants to lecture Wayne Swan – World’s Best Finance Minister – about how to budget?
