This QLD Budget isn’t a classic pre-election sweetener

With a state election due next year it might have been expected that the budget measures announced today would be something of a sweetener; but that’s proven not to be the case. 
After funding from the Australian Govt is taken into account this Budget outlines only an extra $342.6 million of measures compared to $463.5 million last year (which, by the way, forecast an extra $548.3 million this year).
This certainly isn’t a cash-splash to win votes.
Full details of all the budget measures are available here.
