LU CAKAP APA, SHAHRIR?!
What rubbish did Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister, Datuk Shahrir Samad say on TV3 last nite that the hike in fuel prices will not necessarily push up prices of other goods.
Tarak sekolah ka apa? Can he guarantee that a lorry ferrying vegetables from Cameron Highlands to Kuala Lumpur will not impose extra charges to wholesalers in Pudu market, for instance.... and this wholesalers will sell their products to the retailers at the same price?
Use your common sense la, Shahrir. You are a well-educated person. Dont act stupid just because Pak Lah made you a minister and you have to nod or say 'yes' to everything he says.
When you were a laundryman, how many times that you DID NOT hike up your charges on customers each time when there was a hike in fuel price?
The rakyat is not that BODOH anymore, Datuk. Since this is not the first time that the government announced such a price hike, they are well aware of the consequences. In other words, they have learnt a lot from such announcements.
To say that other consumer items will not be affected - just because some get government subsidies - is totally rubbish.
What about the cost of transportation, oil-based manufacturing and other services? And what about the new electricity tariff?
Apa la lu!!!!
