Aramai Tii No + + Sin Tax
Three different brands of beer three cans for RM10
No announcement for bonus for civil servants, no annual school fees as well as examination fee for STPM, increases in allowances, incentives, 50 per cents discount on services tax and no increase in Sin Tax.
A generous budget tabled by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi in Parliament yesterday. This has been expected given that in a few months times, Abdullah's Government will go for a fresh mandate from the people. Yes, this is an election budget.
No increase in Sin Tax - a great relief not only for cigarette makers and brewers but also to end users. For that I believed the 3 for 10 and the like will continue to be popular. So many `No increases' in the budget give reasons for many to be Aramai Tii at their respective watering holes.
