So, what do you think it’s going to be? Anyone watching TV for updates?

KUALA LUMPUR: The 2008 Budget, to be unveiled today by the prime minister with the celebratory mood of 50 years of Merdeka still in the air, promises goodies that will excite the man in the street.

“The rakyat can expect everything,” Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said when asked what was in store for the people in the Budget, which he will table in the Dewan Rakyat at about 4pm.

For ordinary Malaysians, the budget is expected to include items to help them keep the cost of living manageable, enhance security to ensure safer streets and neighbourhoods and improve public transportation.

The police will likely receive extra allocations to beef up their numbers and equipment for deterring and fighting crime. ( Story link )
