When is a broken promise a lie or just deferred?

Being lied to really does upset the masses. 

While critics dissect the budget the main debate among punters is the issue of broken promises.
We have arrived at the point where the most "important" and "responsible" budget in a generation (which is not said about every budget) has been stripped down to the question of what constitutes a lie.
Surely this has taken the gloss of Tony Abbott and Joe Hockey's effort to save us from pending disaster?
Being lied to really does upset the masses.
This week, with the help of resident song bird Denis Carnahan, we will investigate the issue in animation and song – and that's the truth.
