KUALA LUMPUR: Striking a more conciliatory tone with the Chinese after his controversial statements over the weekend, the Prime Minister today reassured Pakatan Rakyan supporters that though they shouldn’t make demands on the BN government, they were still eligible to pay taxes.
“I know many of you have taxes deducted from your salaries and businesses. Please don’t worry, as long as I’m around, that wont change,” said the PM, “Certainly the government is only here to help its supporters, but taxes are something everyone is entitled to!”
A Chinese DAP supporter was overheard saying, “That’s a relief! I was really worried there for a moment!”
