The opposition’s promises to reduce oil prices if it were to form a government will only bankrupt the country, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.The Deputy Prime Minister said it was “just not possible” for the opposition to bring fuel prices down, pointing out that they were only fooling the people with empty promises.He said claims that the opposition would channel Petronas profits into subsidising fuel prices did not make sense as current oil prices were on a record high. “Say, if Petronas makes RM70bil or RM80bil (and) they want to channel it for fuel subsidy. Then where will the government obtain funds for building roads, hospitals and other amenities?” Najib said at the Tuaran Tamu Besar and Cultural Carnival here yesterday.- The Star 31 Dec 2007
Come on...Najib dont let those Oxford brads fool you. The opposition has ruled Kelantan for almost 30 years,have they made Kelantan bankrupt? There are many virgin oilfields offshore Kelantan yet to be tapped,but why is the gomen keeping mum about this? Are they waiting for them(gomen) to be in power and collect the oil royalty?
I feel the gomen is making the country bankrupt with all the extravagance mega corridor projects. Tell me Najib where is the gomen going to find money to fund these lavish mega projects,if not from their very own cash rich,Petronas.
Yes, Petronas made billions yearly and the gomen used a fraction of this money for fuel subsidies. What about the rest? Well,the gomen used Petronas money to bailout ailing crony's and their children companies,organise Monsoon Cup,F1 competition etc,etc. Najib,how about ceasing all these nonsense and used the for money for the benefit of the rakyat?
On Umno secretary-general Radzi Sheikh Ahmad's suggestion that Perlis MB Shahidan Kassim be replaced, its a good idea and for that matter,it should apply to all UMNO's MBs and CMs too.
Btw, all the money spend on firework exhibit to welcome the new year at KLCC,also can be channel to charities rather than putting up such stupid show-off display that benefits no one.
..dont bullshit the rakyat with your UMNO theories.....
