Headline grabbing statement no doubt but totally insane, foolhardy, wasting time and resources in my view

When all else fails, resort to speculation. Has the FM lost his mind?

Concentrate on how to privatize and cut govt footprint. Otherwise you will just be like the previous finance ministers whose job was borrowing from IMF and other international lenders.

They do not appoint a finance minter to tackle actual pressing underlying financial issues. Sad people still think things will turn around like almost overnight. Maybe 50 years with constant good govt
