“OilHeat on PM and his Cabinet”….

Malaysiakini posted  http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/83952 that rising prices of food and fuel were a major factor in the ballot, which has triggered repeated calls for the Premier to stand down. We are a major exporter of crude oil.How then did the government subsidise our petrol? No!!!, ‘subsidy’…….. Government did not  pay any money for it in the first place? Subsidising and getting the money from the government coffers (hefty sum of money) is completely misleading.

Looking for answers? Where and what does the PM and his cabinet do?  All our ‘leaders’ are engrossed in fighting and bringing each other down and the attack on the establishment is of “epic proportion” and it seems that the Powers to Be are charging forward.

An informed source has that the “September issue would be done sooner than later” It is the right time to move and as our earlier reports have mentioned POLITICS? CROSSOVERS? CHANGES? “Sabah MP defections is a ”meticulous strategy” put up by Anwar to deflect from the real crossovers taking place. All attention and energy is on the Sabah MP’s and the UMNO MP’s in West Malaysia were free to plan the defections. Abdullah knows what he is up to and knows what is coming.”

tengku razaleigh forum 260408 ku li speakingUMNO MP’s have to be balanced with at least 15-20 to balance the defections from East Malaysia. it is without doubt an arrangement of “Great Financial Minds” The person in question is Tengku Razaleigh and Anwar Ibrahim both of whom has served as Finance Ministers and has access to all the dealings of “Petronas,Bernas and Malaysias Banking Accounts”. There is a deal so it seems involving giving Tengku the Interim Premiership in the event that Abdullah is forced to “ABDICATE” or he calls for SNAP elections. The King holds the Key and Constitutional Power and he may even appoint Tengku as PM which of course is acceptable by Anwar. 

Will this sealed the deal even for Mahathir? It must be noted that there are still a lot of Mahathirs “Boys” in the cabinet and their allegiance are not to PM but safeguarding their own territories and their UMNO party positions. Anwar was after all brought into UMNO by Mahathir and though they had more than a “fallout” Anwar could be seen as the Man that saves UMNO. We know that “Enemies become friends and friends become enemies.An enemy of your enemy becomes your friend,even if the former is also your enemy,but as long as the latter is a bigger enemy.”

Isn’t this very true in the present Oil and Fuel Crisis and saving the country would be the call for the day? Ordinary Malaysians do not have great agenda. They simply want a comfortable life without too much hassle and bother. The rethinking and moving forward of Malaysian economy needs to be addressed as we are falling and falling.

Will street protests that has happened and are being planned work? The BIG ONE on Saturday July 12th 2008  http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/83988  Excerpts:- This morning (The protesters marched a short distance – about 200 metres – to show their anger with the 41 percent fuel hike which took effect today)  Not really, as it will only bring more hate,frustrations and anger. They say but……. its the only way to tell the Government that the people are not HAPPY.

It is without a doubt that there is a need to turn this heat on the PM and his cabinet by going about with deliberations with both sides of the house.They should be answers and above all they have to come out with the policies plus strategies. Only then we as Malaysians will be proud of this elected representatives and are willing to be associated with.

Do we need to be bullied by all the outside forces which are determining our peoples daily lives. Malaysia is truly blessed with Oil, natural resources and has vast agricultural lands which any other forign country would crave for. The Rakyat are Bleeding………………..smilies/angry.gifsmilies/angry.gifsmilies/angry.gifsmilies/angry.gifsmilies/angry.gif

We compare the price with some OIL PRODUCING countries.Have your own opinion…..!!! 
UAE– RM1.19/litre
Bahrain– RM0.87/litre
Kuwait– RM0.67/litre
Saudi Arabia– RM0.38/litre
Turkmenistan– RM0.25/litre
Venezuela– RM0.16/litre
MALAYSIA– RM2.70/litre

They can afford to provide petrol at these prices because they have surplus for local consumption. After all Anwar did promise us to lower the fuel prices the moment he becomes PM. So is the heat on Abdullah and his cabinet…….
