Wanna Help Lulu Fill In The Blank?

Wanna help Lulu fill in the last blank?
The janji tak akan naik harga lagi tahun ini is expiring soon.

What do you think?
Naik? Turun? No change?

The argument for no change would probably be that the government does not want to stir a hornets' nest and they can't come up with an intelligent reason for the public.

Turun would be cos the harga barrel has dropped since Feb when the price was going north and with the whiff of elections in the air, it's especially important to play good guy after having done so much bad.

Naik?
So many arguments for it. Arguments only-ah, not necessary intelligent, but may have some truth in it.
Like
we are already subsidising so much
cheapest in SEA not including Brunei
use the money to improve the transportation system
need the money to build the new un-tendered Istana
need the money to bayar the class F contractors for projects undertaken between the time of the UMNO General Assembly till year end
need RM500mil for some secret education project

so how? Dec 31st go petrol station isi tangki penuh-ah?
up?
down?
status quo?

Happy New Year.
Lulu knows it's been a shocking and depressing year, but we need to continue to work together to make a better Malaysia for the next generation.

Despite Abdullah's denial, General Elections might be held in 2007 and so no price increase in petrol until after that. Then not only petrol will go up, but everything under the sun, moon and stars.

When you see a friendly reception("we will study it") to the current call for pay increase wrt gomen servants, then election will be a 99% certainty.

Slow, but better than not working, to access your blog.
