I bet at the moment everybody knew about the price raise of petrol, sugar and gas. The rationale for the raise was along this line:
"We need to cut down subsidy in order to boost the growth of economy. The money we can save from cutting down subsidies for these three items will profit to this country's economy."
Another rationale for the heightening price of sugar was along this line:
"After all, it's good for the citizen's health. They need to cut down sugar in their daily nutritional intake. Therefore, cutting down the subsidies is a brilliant idea."
My respond to these two irrational rationales?
Growth of economy? Hmm. Have you heard about submarines? Ooops. Umm. Curiously lost jet engines? *cough*
This is national level comedy.
