Because given the abolition of GST, Tun has a problem: shortage of $ to fund his promises. Until recently, the problem looked containable because of oil prices above US$70.
In Oct, Tun said the government was estimating the 2019 Budget allocation based on an average crude oil price of USD70 per barrel, although the benchmark Brent crude oil is nearing USD80 per barrel currently.
Now it’s below US$60, actually around U$S58.
So what does he do? Try to distract the Bumi Malays by threatening S’pore. (Related post: One reason Tun wants to cause trouble with us on HSR)
Let’s ram and sink their vessels. They can’t afford to replace them.
Notice the silence of TOC and other Tun’s fans who were cheering him on when he wanted to cancel HSR without compensation? They said he was right and S’pore should appease him: Anti-PAP S’poreans sucking up to Tun and Two-face Tun/ Why vote PAP.
One of them has gone back to posting about gd food in Johor and S’pore on FB. Doubtless he’s spending the 30 pieces of silver paid by M’sia’s Special Branch.
And do remember that TOC queried why we needed an air force when RMAF’s planes were grounded because of failure to maintain. A gd reason to raid TOC’s Terry in my view.
And do also remember that Mad Dog thinks we must be nice to people like Tun. And remember this too: Jolovan Wham: Nothing wrong in asking Tun M to intervene in S’porean affairs.
Our anti-PAP types sure love to help the PAP retain power by repeatedly shooting themselves in the ass.
