Up goes petrol: From milk to curry powder to pampers to tenggiri, PRICES WILL RISEV Vijay

Petrol, Prime Minister Najib Razak announced, will go up by 20 cents. In a clear sign of the vast gap that separates him from the everyday life of Malaysians, he added that it was not much. That, of course, is not at all true.

Raising the price of petrol raises the price of everything else, from milk to curry powder to pampers to tenggiri. The ordinary Malaysian, stuck with a stagnant paycheck thanks to BN’s incompetence in running Malaysia, will suffer. He will need to borrow ever more to get through the month. Some will resort to loan sharks, who proliferate unpoliced.

This then is life under the Barisan Nasional. They are bereft of ideas. Their projects are all failures, resulting only in large sums of money going into the pockets of expatriates who whoop it up in Bangsar, while Malaysians have to hang their head as they make their way to fly-ridden restaurants.

Wastage and mismanagement

What happened to Najib’s ETPs and whatever else? They were a bunch of meaningless acronyms given false life by Idris Jala’s numbers massaging. Now all Najib can do is raise our taxes.

There is no question that the external environment is a difficult one. China’s growth is slowing thus reducing commodities prices and we are sorely affected. So that’s what we are, a nation dependent on commodities! We have only stuff we dig out of the ground to sell! How we have progressed!

Why then does the government continue to sink money into rubbish like the Multimedia Super Corridor, another of former premier Mahathir Mohamad’s megalomaniacal projects. It has produced naught! It is managed by the same old people who have got it precisely nowhere.

Proton meanwhile is coming up with a new car. It is a Honda Accord, but with headlights of different geometrical shape, and lower overall quality. Brilliant.

There will be more price rises in the coming months courtesy of the BN. To keep you under control, there will be more draconian laws, used in innovative ways to silence you.

If you and your family are going hungry, consider working two jobs. Lots of government servants are doing that already. If all else fails, there’s always the friendly neighbourhood loan shark. His number is on all the lamp posts.



  1. Rakyat Malaysia (not Mahathir and his family) are burdened with so much unnecessary cost due to BN’s poor economic planing and execution and abuses. They have to pay more for their cars. Due to lob-sided privatization, they pay lots of tolls to make toll operators rich, pay high electricity charges to make IPPs rich. Meanwhile, the government uses tax money to compensate everybody from toll operators who already make huge profits, to contractors of a crooked bridge that was never built, poorly arranged projects like PKFZ, non-viable ones like Perwaja and Proton. We only have to compare our currency with that of Singapore to understand how badly our economy and country are managed. Foreigners think Malaysians are rich because the country has oil. They don’t know that only a few actually enjoy the benefits of the country’s good fortune. What is BR1M when we could have more?

  2. Najib should have cut the number of redundant civil servants in effort to cut deficit!

  4. The rural folk must know that the thief minister’s son, Abdul Bekir has been purchasing diesel at subsidised price and selling it to Sim darby’s Bakun at a huge profit. Yet, BN’s lawmakers have the cheek to say that rural and poor people are the least affected by price hike in fuel. This is the kind of government we must throw out. After promising you the sky and getting your votes they now tell you that they have no choice but to increase fuel price. The weakening of the ringgit and the increase in fuel price are all due to corruption, leakage and incompetency of the BN government.. Period.

    • So why did the people voted these buggers ? Can we start by TELLING the people why they HAVE TO VOTE OUT BN ONCE AND FOR ALL and get a NEW AND BETTER GOVERMENT – TELL the people to WAKE UP so they can STOP THEIR MISERABLE lives and HAVE A BETTER FUTURE INSTEAD !
