15b already got legs to cabut overseas just in case it’s the end of Bee-End.

Poor turnout in Butterworth, showed what people think of the State Government led by Lim Guan Eng in Penang.

People are getting tired of Opposition materials helming the Chief Ministership.

Ah Nar Just because most countries have GST , we should follow. There are many angles that we should look at before we implements GST. Don’t follow for the sake of following. You don’t seems to be a well informed individual who simply comments without looking at the bigger picture. A piece of advice to you. Look before you leap. Don’t ask for something that you don’t realise will change the life of the future generations!

If these Umno schmucks were to do away with the GST where the hell are they going to find money to enrich themselves ? The national budget is badly in deficit and is now living on borrowed money therefore when the black gold runs out the treasury cannot even find enough to pay the over 1.2 million civil servants let alone there be money for them to enrich themselves. What there doing is what one would call their actions is to make hay while the sunshines !
