bukan lupa tapi adjustment. Like it or not, we are all suckers for oil & energy.

aku actually agree that oil subsidies should be reduced gradually, even if the oil price begin to come down.

the ones who benefit most from the oil subsidies are the likes of fadhil hj azman, the damansara-ttdi chaps who have 5 merc and consumed the largest amount of fuel. for every litre, they get the same subsidies, whereas such monies could be put into schools or social benefits for the poorer groups.

but what i fear is the so-called money saved will just go for nothing - the rm4 billion saved will go back to the umnoputra who drive 5 merc in the first place and nothing is given back to the working class group!

Subsidies which cannot get directly to the intended group are money lost. That happens in Msia on daily basis.

* but then again this is expected from a centre-left who fancies himself as a semi socialist.

Kalau macam tu sampai bila pun kita tak kan dapat tahu sama ada subsidi yang save tu digunakan ke saluran yang betul... biasa la politik... they've got the power

i share the same thinkig with rough.
People who consumed petrol in large quantity are the one who getting the best out of the subsidization.
Kalau setakat aku RM 250-300 sebulan, tu pun untuk kerja2 rasmi tak la teruk gov kasik subsidi. Ini company car pun subsidi petrol. Kalau pakai RM 1000 sebulan or RM 3000, diorang ler yg untung.
abih camno?

also, kurangkan subsidi letrik. biar PGB charge market price for gas to TNB, review PPA with the IPPs, and let TNB the actual cost of electricity. Baru le orang tak bazir letrik. Kalau sanggup pasang aircond tiap-tiap bilik and nak biar on je selalu, kene le sanggup bayar bil.

IMHO, all this hoohaa about cost saving lifestyle like using smaller cars, start taking public transports etc trumpeted by those higher ups are all very simplistic and shallow.

At the end of the day, prices of necessities will certainly go up and those who will really feel it are those ppl in the lower income bracket.

aku suruh undi orang lain dulu tak nak.

padan muka rakyat malaysia

ha ha ha

kalau aku the market should dictate, kalau dah mahal mahal laa, pandai2 laaa

but we must have an efficient welfare system that redirects money saved to the needy one.

Dalam Islam pun macam ni, ada dia kata zakat bagi kat semua orang? Or gomen helps people by subsidising goods?

Nope - everyone pays sama, tapi yang kurang mampu ada mechanism mcm zakat....

Apa lah yang payah sngt nak pikir.

Kalau minyak dah naik RM5.00, kita still kena consume kan... Kena la cut cost kat tempat lain... Tak boleh la pakai pampers lagi dah, kena la pakaikan lampin pulak... Insurance kena la potong... Tak boleh dah beli CD ori, kena la beli yg cetak rompak... No more betting...
