Budget Debate pantomime

Published:Saturday | January 24, 2015 | 12:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Since the Budget Debate is now to be reduced to four speakers, will it now be called a Budget presentation and no longer a debate, and why do they think people are tuned out?

I can say why I have tuned out. It is because the Budget presentation has become a political pantomime and serves no purpose except to make the presenters feel like they are doing something

I would like a Budget to be presented as a real set of figures, and not only what areas of government income are expected. I'd also like to see how they expect their actions to improve job creation and manufacturing.
