I think that sometimes people give too much credit to bloggers.
Whatever else will they ask bloggers to do next.
Like we can save the world?
Seriously, though. I'm no political blogger but I am figuring out how political bloggers can "make use of their influence to push for a global voice to object future tradings".
And I suppose, we'd have to ask the country's numero uno political blogger, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to lead the way, if he thinks that that will help stabilise or contain petrol prices in Malaysia. Or that is worth any blogger's while.
But then, he has already given his two cents worth on the subject. H E R E
MIRI, June 5 (Bernama) -- Political bloggers in Malaysia should join forces to pressure for an end to futures trading activities that had caused the price of oil to sky-rocket worldwide, Sarawak Assistant Minister of Infrastructure Development and Communications Lee Kim Shin said here Thursday.
He said instead of continuing to blame the government for the price hike, political bloggers should make use of their influence to push for a global voice to object future tradings.
"In fact, the futures traders (for petroleum) are the real culprits for this (increase in the world oil price)," he said when participating in a "New Media Technology Workshop" organised by the Mass Communications Department of Technology Department Sarawak Campus here.
South East Asia Centre for e-Media (Seacem) project manager, Sean Ang and programme administrator and web editor, Rachel Chan conducted the day-long workshop that attracted 30 participants comprising politicians, journalists and university students. - Bernama
