Pretty happy with Shorten’s budget response. A more progressive approach to increasing the Medicare Levy, and maintaining the budget deficit levy are both good moves. There’s also zero justification for the company tax cuts proposed by the Liberals, so happy to see opposition to those.

The idea of a cap on the deduction for managing tax affairs is a good one, but they could (and should) take this further and extend a cap on a wide range of deductions, which would go some way to reducing the unfairness in the system.

Hidden Folks is Delightful

Hidden Folks is a fairly new arrival on iOS and it’s wonderful. There’s nothing really complicated here, it’s a simple ‘find stuff’ game, but the whole thing is so delightfully whimsical. From the beautiful and intricate hand drawn graphics, which are full of cute twists and surprises, to the fun little clues, and the awesome and unique sound design.

It’s not a game that does anything particularly new or complex, but it is just a delight to play that will put a smile on your face.

You should go buy it.
