Blogger Rocky's Bru wrote on Pakatan's alternative budget which was announced yesterday. He described the Belanjawan Pakatan Rakyat as lacking in the credibility department and is also reflected a dire lack of experience.
I was hoping that Anwar Ibrahim & Co will have more to offer in their "shadow" 2013 than just entertainment value. So far, it has inspired some OK jokes on Twitter. But like I pointed out to YB Nazmi, it should be Belanjawan Negara and NOT Belanjawan Pakatan.
