Quiz: Whose budget is it anyway?

Your task is simple. We give you the name of the budget, you say which of the last three finance ministers presented it. 

Over recent governments it has become de rigueur to add a little flourish to the front page of the annual chunky fiscal screed by giving it a name. Every budget since 2009 has been christened with  a strapline, a slogan, to sum up the contents within.

Your task: work out which title was given to which budget. Not that you need reminding, but Bill English was the finance minister who delivered the budgets from 2009 to 2016, Steven Joyce knocked out the 2017 edition, and Grant Robertson has done them since, this week’s included.
