Budget Day has been the treasurer's big day ever since Paul Keating turned it into a stage-managed event.
This year's budget should have been the biggest show in town but unfortunately for Wayne Swan there were distractions on his special day.
Crowded out by scandals, leadership speculation and doomsayers it was just another day in the nation's capital. It become pretty hard for Wayne to promote his handiwork.
Wayne deserves the spotlight back on him, and this week's espresso video animation does just that. Take it away Wayne!
