Impressive -looking data about the Barisan Nasional. It is good to note that the amount of monies flowing in seem to have increased BUT the question is WHY HAVE THE PEOPLE NOT SEEN THE BENEFIT?

If the country had been doing so well - then we should have seen a drop in fuel price - which would have benefited all the people. FUEL SUBSIDIES IS NORMAL, AND MOST (IF NOT ALL) DO SUBSIDIZE THE COST OF FUEL. The Malaysian government under the Barisan Nasional Party seem to try to make the people think that it has been so good in "subsidizing" the cost of fuel.

QUESTION AGAIN: If the country is doing so well - why did the government increase the cost of fuel - the cost of electricity, the cost of water, the cost of Gas, the cost of ASTRO..., the toll..

1.3 million new jobs created.
-This cannot be true at all. About 70% of tertiary students are unemployed. Where is this jobs - does this include the "poster-putting up jobs" during elections. Give us the statistics. (Government is reducing the number of civil servants. Bank employees are just about to lose their jobs. There has been so much retrenchments and VSS schemes..)

1.3 million new jobs created - but for whom... Has it been taken up by Malaysians. (We previously had about 1.8 million foreign workers - and today it is 2.01 million or more) Remeber that poorly paid migrant workers is what the Malaysian Government wants to be able to continue to say that Malaysia has "cheap labour", "docile and not-trouble making labour"... The question is where is these jobs and who has taken up these jobs.....BE OPEN AND TRANSPARENT...

Monthly income has gone up in HOW MANY FAMILIES...because most of us do not see this happening. What has gone up is definitely Family DEBTS...

Increased returns to the KWSP (EPF) would translate into higher interests --- are we getting even the 8% interest that we used to get once before --- NO.

On the face of it some statistics may look GOOD but we need to analyze the words used and what it really means...and it is sad that the BN does not give us ALL the statistics - not just the statistics that makes BN look good ---- look good - but an analysis of the meaning would result in the BN not looking good for the people...
