The following statements made by some of our BN leaders inadvertently reflect the bourgeoisie attitude towards the common people of this nation. It is a common knowledge that with the increase in petrol price, a domino effect on all goods and services will follow suit, and there is simply no escape from it. In the end, it is the people who will have to cough up the difference for survival. Without a doubt these BN leaders have never been poor in their lives as otherwise such callous statements would not have been made. It also shows how much they have lost touch with the common people. How could they know when they are the 'fat cats' living in posh homes, chauffeur-driven around, eat at expensive restaurants and earning a sizeable salary. By the way, the BN fat cats are in no way cute.

"Petrol prices have gone up, but it surely would not burden the rakyat as the only people with big cars are prominent figures who can afford it. Kampung people don’t have cars,” Slammed within seconds, Bung has had to contend with a stream of annoyed Twitter users, including @ayeemin who scathingly said: “A car is not only for the rich. Today, it is a necessity. But having two wives is only for the rich.”
