Pro-PAP fanpage spreads misinformation about GST cuts in Malaysia

“Fabrication about The PAP”, a pro-establishment Facebook fanpage is creating much confusion amongst Singaporeans and Malaysians after posting up two receipts from Malaysia, claiming that prices had gone up despite Goods and Services being cut to zero per cent by the new Malaysian Government.

The page wrote in its post, “Milo kosong increased by RM0.60 even before GST 0%.”

Both receipts were taken before Zero GST (1st June)

The two receipts which were from Rathaa Curry House in Puchong Selangor, showing a 60 cents increase of the Milo drink from RM5.40 to RM6.00.

Although the wording on the Facebook post was correct to state that the increase was before GST is adjusted to flat zero, but the captions on the image give a different impression with the wordings, “Remove the GST, they said. Cost of living will lowered, they said.”

A lazy social media user would just read the caption on the image, and assume the price difference is before the GST was lowered.

But as many netizens commented on the post, the date on which the price was increased is on 29 May, days before the reduction of GST on 1 June.

Zach Nawa wrote, “Blardy hell admin spread fake story! See the date on the receipt both still in May where without GST only start on 1st June. White dog barking lies! Desperate to sabo M’sia new public serving govt..a threat to your master is it?”

Vivien Tay wrote, “FYI, I’m in Malaysia since yesterday, all dinning receipts shows no gst and price stay the same! Love Malaysia bokeh!”

Amirul Adli wrote, ”So uhh…. you are using an increase price of milo and prata as evidence that cost of living has increased? I guess if you are Pro-PAP, you will desperately use anything to support your agenda uh. Pathetic.”

Tsai Kok Tiam sarcastically commented, “food court in Singapore also increased price without 9% gst.”

Despite the comments in the Fanpage noting that the price increase was before the cutting of GST and that it is the issue with the restaurant and not the system, netizens, especially Singaporeans, shared the post without reservation and doubts.

It is a wonder why the fanpage did not make the same kind of posts when drinks increased price immediately after the announcement of water tax hikes in 2017 and Ministers such as Senior Minister of State for Finance and Law Indranee Rajah, had commented that the water tariff hike would have a very minimal impact on the price of coffee or tea.

  • Never fooled:

    Name of prominent Hong Kong journalist used to publish “fake news” criticising Mahathir and praising Lee Hsien Loong.

    PAP has been desperate to downplay the impact of the recent Malaysian GE to discourage Singaporeans from voting for change.

    They are also afraid about being blamed for damaging Singapore’s reputation due to their involvement in 1MDB.Not the first time our country has been used to launder money.

    Do not be fooled by these IBs,who are paid using your hard earned tax dollars.

  • Who fake?:

    Dr Thum is proven beyond any shred of doubt who really is the faker? Roti Prata kechil must be having l of a lot of toddy when he tried to wiggled and waggered characteristically thru the darkness these Biws are shutting themselves in.

    So characteristic, so despicable and downright scum to be offerred the $ contract by the 70%LKY daft SIN and the cesspool of spineless plps which must raised the chief from the ashes for going after his precious exile prince & grand prince from his well schemed le dynasty royale & gorilla humilated princess.

    Stupidity is supidity notwithstanding how opaque the shield is, ii cannot change the stupidity impregnated with greed cum arrogance. But whether indoctrinated stupidity be salvated or not will have to see in a couple of years time whence a clean slate can be d along with the mandate for the iinitialisation the cleansing ration.

    For once jet the prayer be spare not the sinners but those being sinned upon. Let those who raised the swords be to the evils come with the sword and not those they sworn upon for forgiveness yvhave rsisedvthe swords and r still using them.

    Amen ow ni tor fu!

    We should strictly focus on our agenda – Seek justice and transparency. Return our CPF money at age 55 in lum sum. Let our youngster attend Uni and get a job in our ministries. Nevermind what pro-idiots said or commented. They still want to keep their fat pay by slaving us? It’s time to reverse them. Be united and stay positive to our aim.

    Do you mean PAP is digging its own grave? Like that China can send more PRCs to Singapore and subsequently let PAP turned them to Pink ICs. In next GE, all those PRC-SINGs will VTO and form the new govt? Just imagine only lah.

  • Devils InDisguise:

    All these PLPs have to write something or promoting their thuggish leaders, or else either their livelihood can be destroyed or their special protection or incentives can be withdrawn. This evil practices had been going on for a long long time. We must learn from the new Malaysian regime how to deal with these PLP when time is in our favor.
