Rising oil price, global slowdown cast shadow over Najib’s polls plan


Uncertainty over the rising price of oil and a looming global economic slowdown could prompt the Prime Minister to bring forward the date of the general election.

The BR1M cash is being dished out – unashamedly using BN channels. But with rising prices, what is RM500? It will be wiped out in no time and hence forgotten as people struggle to come to terms with more trying economic conditions.

The last treat in the bag of goodies (financed by public funds) will be the new remuneration scheme for the civil service – but first the government has to deal with unhappiness over the vast disparity in pay rises for the top and bottom rungs of the civil service.

And how long before the government increases electricity tariffs, introduces GST and thrusts 1Care upon an unsuspecting public?

Are they likely to do any of this before the general election? I doubt it.

Najib dare not take on DSAI directly with a debate. In the meantime its mainstream press continue to attack DSAI on all fronts, with allegations of sodomy to Jewish state supporter.

We must all come up to vote out BN, however soon or late the election could be. Every vote counts considering the tipu helah of BN!

There most likely won’t be a good time to call in the forseeable future. Gherkin’s My1PM will probably hold out till expiry date. Having more time is always a good thing.


(They are) running out of ‘bullets’ even for just electioning..

Their last remaining hold out is plain simple cheating – after ‘buy election’, all that remain is ‘steal election’.


BN’s mainstream television news slots never fail to promote Najib – he is always shown in all the news slots saying this or that. There is never one day when his face is not shown on the telly. All these efforts are made in order to enable him to con the rakyat further with his mighty economic deeds and so-called transformation programmes that will bring all Malaysians on the road to prosperity. Figures and statistics are manipulated to suit BN favourably; for example crime rate and unemployment have gone down. But if you were to visit a small town and… Read more »
