LETTER: Morrison surplus claims far-fetched

FEDERAL Treasurer Scott Morrison is about as assuring as former British PM Neville Chamberlain.

Chamberlain proclaimed that "There would be peace in our time", after he had his meaningful chat with Adolf Hitler at Munich on September 30, 1938.

The outcome of that cosy chat was to cede the Sudentenland region of Czechoslovakia to Germany.

This subsequently led to the total invasion of that country.

Morrison is spouting that "there will be budget surpluses and debt reduction in our time".

That distant time will come too late for many of Australia's citizens.

They are the ones who will be doing the "ceding in our time" and who will have to bear the brunt of Malcolm Turnbull and his Treasurer's economic measures.

We have to hope that their proclamations and actions will not produce the same devastating outcomes as in Munich 1938.
