The King Conservatives’ minority government safely passed their budget in the house a few days ago. The premier said it was an inclusive budget agreed to by all parties through close consultation.

While I tend to agree, and indeed found the budget to be reasonable. It occurred to me the government played a rather clever ploy. They commended the Liberals on their previous careful managing of the Island finances. The Liberals could hardly have voted against the budget after such praise? Just my thoughts on collaboration, eh!
