If there is something that could cause the whole of Malaysia to curse and swear in unison, it’s the increase in petrol and diesel prices starting midnight. Heck, it affects EVERYONE! And as if this is not bad enough, household electricity tariff is slated to increase by 18% per home with effect from 1st July, 2008.
Sometimes I wonder what sorts of people are running the country. Don’t they know that a steep increase in petrol and electricity will kill the economy? Oh yeah I think the PhD holder in economics has been put in cold storage or something.
I don’t want to hear the crap about the lowest fuel prices in South East Asia, the cheapest electricity rates among ASEAN countries or the lowest price broadband in Asia. All I know is that our earning power is not increasing in tandem.
And before I forget, Pakatan Perak State Government, where is our free water???
