RM2 per litre petrol or stability...

Friends have been asking me this question - do I opt for a RM2 per litre petrol or a stable country...

Its a trap question. Should I opt for the first, I will have to accept Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as my next prime minister. If I choose the 2nd, its already what we have now, except that it needs some balancings and allignments.

Lucky I dont belong to the Permatang Pauh constituency. Otherwise, I could have easily fall into either one.

However, what I have in mind and what I have experienced over the years, a political stability is most important. It opens the doors to many opportunities. It eases the inflow of foreign direct capitals (FDIs) and set the economy on a better and smoother growth.

But, are we very stable now? I dont think so. Our exports has hit its lowest in three months, our Composite Index (CI) doesnt look so promising while the inflation rate will take many more years to shrink from its 26-year high.

I have seen some governments changed hands - the Philippines, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, South Korea, Japan and others. It brought about only minimal advantage to the country and its people. Some are still struggling to stand up.

Anyway, the choice is always the prerogative rights of the voters, right?

Why is it that we have to subscribe to petrol or stability? Stupid options.

How about high petrol, rampant crime, corruption, judicial corruption, police corruption, murder....after all these you still think Malaysia is stable??

Wake up from thy slumber!!


For a better Malaysia....First Give Anwar a Chance....Kick UMNO-BN out. its Myth of stable country...what use a stable country when the supreme malay population are in hunger, lack the dignity to live and spend their time on being Drug addicts and rempit....

Stability is a figment of your imagination....Hunger and Chaos, corruption, crime is rampant now.

Bro Bujai,
If such a question is posed to me, and as I always put it, Malaysia is blessed with OIL,I will go for the former.The nation is not incurring more cost, its only our income is less.

Our instability is due to domino effects of the petrol increase. But the issue now is will the prices of other things will go down in tendem with the reduction. I doubt very much it will happen.

I also want stability.

However just look at how the current gomen manage the country. Just consider ONLY the recent decision to increase the price of fuel and then consider to reduce a month later. Do you think such action will reduce the 'economic damages' that had already happened bcos of the price increased?

Do you think price will reduce?

Do you think inflation will recover within a month becos of the earlier decision of 41% increased in fuel?

Bottom line, this recent decision done by the current gomen show their 'economic' intelligence. Some says the country 'economy' is being managed 'autopilot'. But I believe all decisions be it autopilot or manual are decided by the human brain capability which is called intelligence.

Do you know that within the span of 5 years, how much backward has the country slided?

Obviously most of us are hoping for a miracle. Tell me, do you think the current gomen can create a miracle?

The current gomen PROMISED stability but are they ABLE to actually PROVIDE the stability?

RM2 a litre has nothing to do with stability..it is not impossible..the price of fuel is definately naturally come down..just wait for the bubble of future comodity to burst..I have confidance that our DSAB can bring the price down to RM2 without any prob..we have the money..only have to cut down the unneccessary wastages and corruption and cronieism.

just wonder, how can there be long term stability when there is a dearth of good governance?
