YES...that could be the solution to keep Malaysians a happy lot.
Chinese New Year and Christmas have ended and still the good things flow through to Malaysians.
Prices have been frozen apart from the sickening tolls that go up relentlessly, thanks to the ultra-secret toll agreements. But you can be sure there will be a slew of price increases over a wide range of products after the elections.
I think petrol will go up by at least RM0.20 per litre. Already in the supermarkets, your shopping ringgit has shrunk by about 10% to 25% depending on the items in the grocery basket. The simple staple of instant noodles or cream crackers now sell for about 30% more compared to 12 months ago.
Yessir! Maybe we can have elections every 2 years so that simple initiatives like these will be carried out more regularly; rather than become a carrot just on the eve of an election.
Think the DPM considers the people to be donkeys?
