Engell: Here is the big winner

Political commentator Hans Engell is not impressed by the first budget from the new red government.

- It is a little flat budget. Those who had hoped for something big and visionary, will be disappointed. It is a bogholderifinanslov, which is characterized by very small steps.

The red parties and the Alternative could on Tuesday announce that they had negotiated a budget in place. If you have got the impression that the negotiations have gone like clockwork, and you take errors, assess His Engell.

- the Tone has been tough, and the negotiations have been difficult. It heralds the storm ahead for next year's negotiations on the klimalov and kommunaludligning, says Hans Engell.

Although the big ambitious initiatives, according to Engell failed to appear at this year's negotiations, there is still a clear winner.

- The main winner is the finance minister, for he has got a budget in place. But all parties have got something of with. SF has been given 1.5 billion to the minimumsnormeringer, so they can be highlighted, says Hans Engell.

the Alternative also served on the negotiations, although the party was not to negotiate the red forståelsespapir in place after the elections in the summer. According to Hans Engell they should just be happy to be with.

Uffe Elbæk, can only rejoice to be allowed to write under. Now approaching christmas, and the other has parties have enough thought, that he should not be left out in the cold, says Hans Engell.
