Budget 2016: It's delivered and now it's time for Malcolm Turnbull, the great persuader, to sell it

If voters are underwhelmed by what they heard from Morrison on Tuesday evening, Turnbull's task is to bring them around after calling the election this weekend.His main critique of Abbott was that he lacked an economic narrative. The backdrop is three months of indecision, thought bubbles and internal unrest that have put Labor either in front or on level peging in the polls.Whether it flies will hinge very largely on whether Turnbull can deliver as the great persuader.

Tech Why Joe Hockey's green folder never made it to Scott Morrison's budget 2016

His stated intention was to hand down the luxuriant folio to his successor,who would hand it down to theirs, an Antipodean version of the UK chancellor's iconic red briefcase, first held by William Gladstone in 1860.Problem is, the tradition didn't last very long. At that infamous 2014 federal budget, Joe Hockey's first (or second last, depending on which way you look at it), the Treasurer made a song and dance of starting a grand new tradition.

A parliamentary budget office count for the coming financial year puts the "ghost" measures at $1.7 billion.

How PNG sank the subs fanfare

And the PNG prime minister, Peter O'Neill, accepted immediately that the detention centre would be closed forthwith.The court's finding should not have been a surprise; the hearings began in 2013, shortly after the Abbott government signed a memorandum of understanding setting up the centre.

It was classic Dame Edna, who has roasted everyone from Charlton Heston to the Queen during a long career in the public eye."I'm going very well, little Wally," Edna said after being introduced on the show. "Fun you wouldn't believe." "Do you?" deadpanned Dame Edna. "Imagine if you had company in bed."Asking Bickmore about the birth of her daughter, Evie, a year ago, Edna asked, "Did you have stretch marks as a result?"  Dame Edna suggested a remedy of wombat spleen jelly.
