I do not understand what PROTES is for.
Firstly you want to protest against the unjust fuel increases and hardships. Yet you have a day long "carnival" urging people to travel to participate. The "protest" was more of a fund raising campaign and selling of party paraphernalia... if you ask me. And why do we need a "rock concert"? We are there to send a message to the government! Not some kind of weekend day's off!
Pakatan, I still believe you guys can do a better job than BN. We need a viable government to manage the country... not an alternative government to organize rock concerts!
For all your endeavour in calling for fuel price reduction, you have not tabled an alternative measure to manage subsidies nor curbing the abuse of low fuel prices by foreign cars. You have not addressed the issue of smuggling of subsidized fuel. Although you propagate the use of Petronas's funds for the subsidies, you have not cast a sight into the future when oil runs out! You have not tabled a proper vision as to how you are going to manage the country!
So far, all I hear from Pakatan is, lower fuel prices, enticing frogs to jump and causing chaos in an already fragile political situation in the country. Maybe they are preying on the fragility. But, prey you must.. make it SHORT and DECISIVE please!
So, Pakatan, Sept 16 now looks pretty elusive.... what happens if Sept 16 came and went without much fanfare... what then will people think of Pakatan? Do it ... Just Do it... Malaysians have been let down for 50 years... so what the heck...
