My friend Kok Fah asked a brilliant question in his blog (C): Malaysia is a petroleum producing country, should we not be happy for the oil hike?

Why aren’t we?
What would happen to the windfall enjoyed by Petronas? Where’s our share?
These are the right questions to be asked. Hopefully, by July 12, Protes has found the effective discourse for its cause.
Read RPK for the right reasons to be angry.
