Its crystal clear that policy corners everyone and been going on for more than 2 decades now. There's NO indication anythings going to change. Its very possible allowing free market trade with local auto industry will cripple at least one national car for a start and dent the gahmen's tax revenue. Looks like IT WON'T BE ALLOWED TO HAPPEN, so every potential Malaysian car buyer IS A SU***R to payout more money than the car is actualy worth!..no if's no buts. Its FACT!
OTH, It may not be so bad if one pioneer national car produce cars much much cheaper and as good as any the other, help encourage ridding of smoggy decade old or unfit cars off Malaysian roads, lessen the burden of high repair and maintenance costs to rakyat, I'm for it, but again, THERE'S NO CONCRETE EVIDENCE or indication it'll happen. All the worry is a big dent in tax revenue..I'M COCKSURE!.
THEY TELL YOU ITS "PROTECTION"...actually it means "protect tax revenue from deteriorating".. TRUE OR NOT...I don't see ANY OTHER PRIMARY or TRUE REASON!.
even when we change G .the prev G wud not let go its hold very easily to the new G.. lets say, new G change.. no more NAP.. and no more tax.. the new gahmen itself were asking for suicide note as they are liberating more and more things but there is no return as tax is a very realible surce of income for goverments and countrys thru out the world.
like it or not we are destined to be crippled.. capitalism will be always be a capitalism no mater who rules as it was the very essense of their democratic system itself. there is no Utopian society. no future no hope. as least what we can do is, work hard, earn our hard earn clean cash and decide what we're gonna do to make our life. NAP or no NAP, we still screwed..!
