COVER STORY Morrison's budget jive lacks inherent harmony
The federal budget was released shortly before News Weekly went to press, so by necessity these are preliminary comments on what is a lengthy and complex document containing, among other things, new taxes on the banks and an increased Medicare levy to offset increased government spending.

CANBERRA OBSERVED Does budget do heavy lifting or is it "Labor lite"?
After many months of enjoying the political ascendancy and the successful conduit to every form of voter discontent, the Labor Party might just be realising that it is missing the one weapon the Coalition still has in its armoury – access to the Treasury coffers.

FRANCE Emmanuel Macron: a president without a political base
The clear-cut election of Emmanuel Macron as France’s next President, with the backing of both the left-wing Socialists and the right-wing Republicans, disguised the fact that Macron has no traditional base of support, and will face an uphill battle to control the National Assembly, after elections are held in a month’s time.

FOREIGN AFFAIRS Taiwan to go full steam ahead with submarines

RURAL AFFAIRS Murray Goulburn closures an omen of an industry in crisis
Murray Goulburn’s (MG) decision to close three of its milk processing plants in Victoria and Tasmania with the loss of 360 jobs[1] could spell the death of the small rural communities that are heavily reliant on employment in MG’s plants.

QUEENSLAND ENERGY 50 per cent renewables target: Is it credible?
Queensland’s Palaszczuk Labor Government is investigating a renewable energy output target for Queensland of 50 per cent by 2030. The Government established a Renewable Energy Expert Panel in 2016 to provide advice on credible ways to achieve the 50 per cent target. The expert panel issued a draft report, “Credible pathways to a 50 per cent renewable energy target for Queensland”, in October 2016, and the Government is currently considering a final report.

LITERATURE Inexplicable: the ongoing appeal of H.P. Lovecraft
H.P. Lovecraft was a monumentally bad writer. And I mean monumentally bad. He stands as an awful warning of what can happen to a real literary talent, towering in awfulness like one of those mesas in a John Ford Western.

LITERATURE The gentle giant: Samuel Johnson
Imagine, if you can, a seamier part of London of the mid-18th century with its bustling streets, cries of the beggars, the stench of raw sewage and the rumbling of horse-drawn carriages over cobblestones. Down the street comes a huge dishevelled figure, old slippers and a moth-eaten wig, walking with a strange gait and gesticulating wildly from time to time. Sometimes he will stop and retrace his steps, just to make sure his feet land squarely on every alternate flagstone. An escapee from Bedlam perhaps? Not so! It is Dr Samuel Johnson, one of the greatest literary figures of his age.

MUSIC Promissory notes: the public funding siphon
One of the greatest challenges in arts funding, including music funding, is to remember a principle that would seem to be breathtakingly obvious, yet is all too often forgotten. The point of arts funding is to invest in the people who create the art: the artists and the others who support the art.

CINEMA Going in Style: Old dogs turned rookie robbers
Generally speaking, bank robbery is seen as a bad thing. The same can be said for highway robbery, and sea robbery, also known as piracy, and outback robbery, also known as bush ranging, and any other examples of robbery one might care to think of.

LETTERS
China had a one-child policy for several years, and currently the world is performing millions of abortions every year. This writer predicts that, as a result, in the next generation there will be an economic crisis as never before. Why?

BOOK REVIEW An abstemious revolutionary
Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov (the origins of the later Lenin are uncertain) came from a comfortable and cultured bourgeois background. His father was an administrator in the school system. Great Russian chauvinism, which dominated the Soviet regime, tried to hide the facts, which have emerged since 1991, that he had both Jewish and Central Asian ancestry.

BOOK REVIEW Soviet-era thriller revels in details
However, his private life is tumultuous, reflecting on many levels the chaos Russia was falling into. When his girlfriend Natalia falls pregnant, he marries her. With the onset of the Revolution, Mikhova decides to support the Bolsheviks, partly because his wife has political associations with them, but also because he is disgusted at the behaviour of groups hostile to the Bolsheviks, the murder of his father by one of them being a seminal catalyst.
