Effective 23.08.2008 the pump price of petrol has been reduced. The Ron97 pump price is now RM2.55 (down 0.15 sen from RM2.70) while Ron92 is now priced at RM2.40 (down from o.22 sen from RM2.62). Diesel reduced by 0.8 sen to RM2.50.
Does it make any difference ? Would the prices of the host of other services and food stuff that sky-rocketed after the drastic 0.70 sen increase come down now?
“Anwar also reiterated the promises by PakatanRakyat that should it form a government, the oil price would be reduced by 70 sen and the five Hindraf leaders currently detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) would be released."As a Muslim, if PakatanRakyat is able to form a government today, tomorrow will also see the release of all Muslim ISA detainees," he added.The PermatangPauh by-election will see a three-cornered fight between Anwar, BN candidate DatukArif Shah Omar Shah and AngkatanKeadilanInsan Malaysia (AKIM) president HanafiMamat.” - BERNAMA report from BukitMertajam late on Saturday (16.08.2008)
Saudara/DatukSeriAnwar Ibrahim appears to be wriggling at the corner, and with the limited political manoeuvres in his bag the former BN Government SERVANT for almost TWO DECADES is clearly a DESPERATE POLITICIAN.
How else could we describe the string of populist announcements and pledges that flows out of the master orator’s mouth, even before the PermatangPauh by-election.
Realising that his repeated lies about forming the PKR Government before Sept.16 has been exposed and ridiculed by even his own party members, the slick- soothsayer wants to release all ISA detainees if he is elected as PermatangPauh Member of Parliament.
Is this possible? Yes, he promised to release the FIVE Hindraf leaders and all the other Muslim ISA detainees if he’s able to form the next Government. What about the other non-Muslim ISA detainees apart from the Hindraf 5?
Is Anwar Ibrahim promising the people something which has been carefully thought about, or is he simply making a fool of himself – thinking that the people are fools?
In the first place, how could he form the Government just by emerging as the Champion in PermatangPauh?
From the Baling days until now, Anwar Ibrahim has not changed his stripes. Nor has he stopped telling lies to the gullible people of Malaysia, especially to the Malays who seem to think that Anwar is their saviour.
Analyse his promises and THINK carefully, or he’ll sell all of us lock, stock and barrel.
As the PermatangPauh campaign heats up, Anwar might even promise to release ALL PRISONERS IN MALAYSIAN JAILS under a blanket amnesty – provided that he is allowed to pursue his LUST and become the next Prime Minister.
