The red book doesn’t say that. If I could just quote the Governor of the Reserve Bank:

… the Australian government borrows in a global market. There are free global capital flows here and the long rate in Australia is driven more strongly by what happens in global markets than by what happens here …

It is a strong fiscal consolidation for the good of the economy by a government committed to very strong economic management.
