Yesterday’s running of the Canberra Catchphrase Cup saw an overwhelming favourite bolt from the gates, only to be smashed down by a well-trained, perfectly conditioned challenger – who in turn faced a true champion’s comeback.

When Wayne Swan rose to deliver the Budget last night, it was universally accepted Working Families would easily score a winning number of Catchphrase Cup mentions. With form, talent and a whole subsection of the speech dedicated to him, Working Families could not be beaten.
Yesterday? Last night?? Timmy, methinks you’re not only out of phase with real journalism, you’re out of phase with reality. For the record, old fella, Wayne Swan delivered his first budget TONIGHT. Tuesday, May 13, 2008. Not YESTERDAY, Monday May 12, 2008.
