The Coalition was elected three years ago, with then-treasurer Joe Hockey promising three budget surpluses in a row. Many are now pointing out that the party has delivered not one, with some wondering when the deficits will end.

“I know this isn’t the economy you want,” said Morrison, taking a little sip of Gatorade as sweat dripped from his brow.

“This is the economy you need, to get the economy you want.”
