Why must everything be turned into a circus?
The presentation of the annual budget in Parliament is serious business. This is the opportunity for the opposition MPs to participate in the Budget and present their ideas to Parliament if they feel they have any.
It is bad enough that the opposition does not have a shadow cabinet and shadow Finance Minister. Now the opposition wants to treat Parliament like a circus.
Instead of seeing how they can contribute some ideas, the opposition walked out of Parliament and held a demonstration.
