    "bukankah tanggungjawab kita untuk menggunakan 250 million bagi setiap dolar kenaikan harga itu untuk menggunakan dengan sedemikian rupa supaya dapat pendapatan dan income yang dapat menjana ekonomi untuk masa depan anak-anak kita, cucu-cucu kita.

    I am sorry to say this but what a load of rubbish! do they actually really do that? save for the future generation? all i can see is wasted mega project which doesnt even benefit the rakyat!


  2. Forexloosecannon Robokop R2D2FM is a total waste of space, time and effort!

    The politician is the only animal which can talk for hours and answer 100's of questions without revealing anything new or sensible.

    You did not ask him about the billions lost by him while gambling with our money on the forex market with gay abandon, how he proposes compensating us for it nor how our per capita income grew by 40% in 4 years.

    The answers to such questions are what we, the long-suffering taxpayers, want.

    Not the tame questions which the Minister usually has for breakfast and spits out while keeling over while caught in spasms of derisive laughter.

    It's a pity that the minister was not asked if Malaysia could reduce personal and corporate income tax rates as part of measures to improve the country's competitiveness.

    Or why the Malaysian ringgit can't be strengthened to combat imported inflation?

    What I heard from the minister was basic feel-good, "motherhood" statements. Nothing of substance that analysts and foreign investors could chew on and dissect.

    An opportunity wasted!

    And you, Pak Rocky, treated the minister with far too much respect. Where were the hard questions? Why did you pull your punches?

    Sorry to say la Bro, you are not brave enough to challenge this pengampu mat Yakup. Any propper measure from govt ? All he said is rubbish that even rubbish collecter can't afford to collect them. Or you all already got the scripts ?

    -Adsome, poor Sabahan

    Ya, agree with you, taxpayer.

    And let us not forget wastage of monies sending that silly asstraunot tourist to space.

    Rocky Bro. Nor M Yakcop is NOT worth interviewing. During his 2-terms as the No. 2 in Finance Ministry, what has he done for the rakyat? Absolutely NOTHING worth mentioning, only misery upon misery - he can only sweet-talk just like AAB. In fact he's AAB's clone... cakap putar alam with his economic policies that left the country in deep sh**!

    Saya menyaksikan temuramah dengan YB Menteri Kewangan 2 on TV1.
    Saya selesa dengan pertanyaan yg saudara kemukakan ia mengambarkan kegeraman saya sebagai rakyat Malaysia.
    Tapa malang jawapan nya masih ada yang di sembunyikan.

  8. Salam Rocky,
    If only the 2 reps from the "media" had transformed themselves to be "Stephen Sackur" of the BBCWorldNews/Hardtalk Show who interviewed Dr Mahathir sometime back, then maybe the interview with the FM II would be worth watching.
    How did you manage to get the transcript? As to the verdict of the interview it's so stale. Only the tip of the iceberg was revealed.
