SST was before GST and SST vs GST tax collected average at 2:3

So he is only looking at reinstating SST and doing away with Zero GST (not totally abolished but 0%).

Change of gov good or not, ask Malaysians. We are not directly impacted by the change.

Maybe Dr M is letting this decision to be made by his would-be successor in the next 2 years? And he'll say....I reduced it to zero, my successor reinstated?
That's how I see Dr M, being the "old-hand" handling the state of affairs

By making it 0% instead of scrapping it totally, it leaves this vehicle open for future use. Not necessary 2 years later, which I doubt would be raise so soon. It's like in divorce papers, maintenance $1/mth (not sure what this means... future can ask for whatever sum?). Why not, $1xlifespan and just pay in 1 lump sum?

LHL rushed up within the week after PH won the election but Dr. M press release clearly state that there was no agenda and he does not know why LHL want to see him. Literally slapping LHL, no give face. Poor LHL don't know how he feels? Back home, LHL press release said that was nothing much being discussed. Think Dr. M only see LHL for a short while, shake hand, take picture and sent him off.

Saying this mean they do not need to compensate us?
