財政司司長陳茂波出席財政預算案記者會時,重申政府沒有水晶球為未來財政收入作出準確預算,但自問已經盡力做到最好。對於外界的批評他為「守財奴」,陳茂波說自己腦海忽然想起一句話「You got enemies, congratulations. That means you have at least done something right in life. (如果你有敵人,恭喜你,這代表你一生中至少做了件正確的事。)」 該句說話相信是改自英國已故首相邱吉爾的名言--「You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life. (你有敵人嗎?那很好,表示你曾為了生命中的某些東西而堅持著。)」
