Fudge-It Budget

Fudge-it Budget | Colloquial | Although originally coined to describe Glen Clark’s 1996 balanced budget *which turned out to be a 100 million dollar deficit), fudge-it budgets are now almost common practice in politics. But, like the Fast Ferries fiasco, the media held the Dippers feet to the fire while categorically ignoring the BC Liberals own 1.779 billion dollar fudge-it budget.

Usage: “Inspired by the BC government, I tabled my own fudge-it budget last night to my wife…”explore-the-lexicon
