How Important is a Budget Speech?

Depends what you say in it and what you leave out. And what you do the other 365 or so days of the year. There should also be some basic coordination between ministers. See Anil Baichoo comes on TV to announce substantial increases in bus fares -- based on reasons that appear esoteric at best -- after Pravind Jugnauth has presented his budget. Not good.

Besides cost of living is a manageable quantity that can throw all kinds of politicians out of office.
