Subsidised petrol and the Singapore PR

Ever since the government’s decision to ban sale of subsidised petrol to foreign registered cars there have been numerous complaints by Singapore permanent residents but domiciled in Johor Bahru and using Singapore registered cars that they are being discriminated against.

These people work in Singapore and earn Sing dollars use Sing registered cars and so don’t pay our road tax but enjoy our facilities. I wonder whether they also pay income tax here? If my guess is right fat hope that they will pay their income tax here since they will say that they are already paying tax in the republic where they work.

Isn’t it ironic that they are deemed by the republic to be its permanent residents, yet they are not residents there but stay in JB where they not only enjoy lower cost for a house or house rental.
On top of this they also enjoy subsidised cooking gas, cooking oil, beras, flour, sugar and many other food items and subsidised goods. Why should these foreigners enjoy these subsidies and yet don’t even pay tax here.

They have no loyalty to this country and I am sure if you talk to them they will find all kinds of faults with this country and will praise the republic sky high.

And now when they are being denied just one subsidised item they are making all sorts of noise.

I think we should not be bothered by these ungrateful kind.
In the first place they should not be staying here in Malaysia at all. Since they so revere the Zionist influenced republic they should stay put there. Why must they stay here in Malaysia. It is their presence in JB that have to a certain extent made the cost of living in JB high even higher than in KL.

And as has been the case with our authorities known for their complacency (that was why we lost Pulau Batu Putih), I can bet that we don’t even know how many of these Singapore PRs are domiciled here.

Steps must be taken from now to identify and register them and perhaps discourage these foreign PRs from staying put in Johor.

One colleague has made a simple back of envelope calculation. If say one Singapore PR enjoys just RM30 of subsidy a day, a thousand of them would enjoy RM30,000 and if there are 10,000 of them staying in Johor then the subsidy would cost the country RM300,000 a day!

Since these are Singaporeans working in the republic, that is contributing to its economy, is it then wrong to conclude that Malaysia to a certain extent is also subsidising the republic?

We are always getting the wrong end of the stick in our relations with the Zionist influenced republic. Previously we have been selling them sand on the cheap to enable the republic to reclaim more lands which they sold off at thousands of S$ per square foot.

So they make money out of our sand just as they make money out of our cheap water when the resold the treated water to ships using their busy harbour.

So should we just keep quite and do nothing about all these merely in the name of good neighbourliness? But at whose expense?

If we were to reverse the roles, do you think the republic will keep quiet?

on the surface,you argument looks rational. but pls remember being a pr is one thing, they are still malaysian citizens.so they should be allowed to enjoy the benefits of any malaysians as they also vote and spend their money in malaysia. these brings about many benefits to the economy. and these alone out weighs the cons. but i agree with the trade minister that since they are paid in singdollars, they should market price for fuel, which is heavily subsidise.on other things, we can allow as these helps business to prosper .
