Ah Beng damn buay sai one – pic by NSTP

Corrupt Minister Lim Guan Eng a.k.a Tokong must be pretty livid at being attacked left, right and center.  We are not just talking about the attacks by members of his opponent parties, but also from his own party, the DAP.

Guan Eng was charged in court for corruption after abusing his position to purchase a RM4.7 million bungalow at No.25 Jalan Pinhorn for only RM2.8 million.  This was in return for the sale of a state land at Taman Manggis to a developer linked to the bungalow.

On Tuesday, BN’s Abdul Rahman Dahlan questioned the Pulau Pinang DAP-led government’s act to overpay by 400 percent above the gazetted scale of fees the feasibility studies and detailed design fees to concession holders.  Lim Guan Eng’s government paid RM31.3 million for the feasibility studies for 20.23 kilometers of road, and an additional RM177.5 million for the same for the detailed designs bringing the total paid to RM208.8 million.

This is way above the RM41 million calculated by the Malaysian Board of Engineers based on the gazetted scale of fees.  The project was signed in late 2013 and was supposed to have commenced in 2015 to be completed in 2018.  The project has yet to take off.

The 20.23 kilometers of roads are namely the 10.53km Tanjung Bungah-Teluk Bahang paired road; the 5.7km Lebuhraya Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu-Air Itam bypass and the 4km Lebuhraya Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu-Persiaran Gurney bypass..  These roads were supposed to be linked to the proposed Pulau Pinang undersea tunnel to the mainland which feasibility study has yet to be finalised despite the several changes of deadline.

The feasibility study for the undersea tunnel, promised to be completed at end of 2016 by Lim Guan Eng himself, has thus far cost RM305 million.  In April 2017, the Tokong announced that the study is only 87 percent completed and would be submitted to the Works Ministry in October 2017.

Tokong has also come under fire for excessively destroying the environment from within the DAP ranks.  Teh Chee Yau, the ADUN for Tanjung Bungah, has repeatedly protested the destruction of the environment namely the uprooting of old trees to make way for unnecessary widening of roads, as well as the sand dredging and reclamation projects offshore.

Veteran DAP lawmaker Tan Seng Giaw also voiced his concern against the excesses in Pulau Pinang in his Facebook and Twitter postings.

Retaliating to MCA Pulau Pinang Chief’s reference to Seng Giaw’s Facebook posting, Tokong, who is a unChristian habitual liar said that Seng Giaw had been incommunicado since the beginning of the year and will be dealt with internally.  Seng Giaw hit back by saying it is not true that he is incommunicado.

Perhaps, Tokong only knows how to use the Internet to spread lies on social media but does not know that besides searching for porn and spreading lies, the Internet could also be used to send messages through E-mail, WhatsApp and other media.

Tokong may be a bungling bungalow buyer, lying through his teeth and hope people will buy his lies. But you have to give it to him for believing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel he is not looking at.  Perhaps, people in DAP and Pulau Pinang can help him see the light even better by giving him the boot.

In an incredibly amazingly stupid feat, the DAP has blamed the death of teenager Nhaveen on the Barisan Nasional federal government.


Jagdeep Singh Deo on his Facebook account said that “the crux of the matter is that the Federal Government has failed this family by not preventing this incident.”

Nhaveen died after being assaulted by other teenagers in DAP-run state, Pulau Pinang. He never regained consciousness.

How do you blame the Federal Government for something that happens in your backyard? Pulau Pinang is the only state that has its own Volunteer Patrol Force (Pasukan Peronda Sukarela) with the publicised aim to assist the Royal Malaysian Police to combat crime, on top of the already legally existing Volunteer Patrol Scheme of the Rukun Tetangga that was formed under the Rukun Tetangga Act.

Tokong’s Sturmabteilung

However, the PPS is just the DAP’s version of Hitler’s Sturmabteilung (Storm Detachment) or more popularly known as the Braunhemden (Brown Shirts). The PPS, or Penyangak Purple Shirt, was used mainly to do DAP’s party works, intimidate the population, and stifle resistance.

Datuk Huan Cheng Guan asks if he police hangs political party banners?

Tokong’s purple mob assaulted Ong Eu Soon, a Pulau Pinang activist who has been outspoken towards Tokong’s government.  Ong, who was at a newsvendor in Air Itam one night, was approached by ten PPS members including Lee Chan Kwong and Lee Yew Kuen who attacked him with their motorcycle helmet.

“You speak up, we beat you up.” – PPS Motto

This is all ‘leadership by example.’  Just as how the Tokong believes he is above the law, the PPS thinks that they are licensed to eliminate resistance to Tokong’s administration.  And just like Tokong who does not believe in press freedom, they too attacked journalists. A PPS member, Lim Ah Chye, was found guilty for attacking Guan Ming Daily’s Deputy Crime Chief, Ang Kean Siang, and destroying his camera.  Ah Chye also harrassed Kean Siang and his girlfriend by threatening them with death should Kean Siang refuse to withdraw his police report.

PPS is just another Nazi organisation

PPS looks up to the Penang administration which is led and controlled by the DAP.  DAP is famous for bullying not only its own members who go against Tokong’s wishes, but also representatives from its partner-parties into submitting to the wishes of the Tokong as the Chief Minister, a role Emperor Lim Kit Siang is said to want to fill in when his Tokong son goes to jail for corrupt practices.

Tokong is a bully – Part 1

Tokong is a bully – Part 2

The Tokong would do anything to stay in power in order to fulfill his greed no matter if he breaches the law and even the Federal Constitution.  Therefore it is no wonder that even a Malaysian-born foreign citizen could knowingly be fielded as election candidates.

There are already those who want to curb Tokong’s excesses.  DAP’s Tanjung Bungah rep as called for the Chief Minister’s term to be limited to only two terms, effectivly ending Tokong’s reign by the next general elections.

Limit the Chief Minister’s term to only two terms and drop ADUNs who are corrupted – a clear point towards the Tokong

However, Teh Yee Cheu knew that his motion would not get any support but submitted it anyhow to show on record that he had called for such a move.  His motion did not get support from those who are afraid of losing their privileges if the Tokong wins against the motion.

Even veteran DAP politician, Tan Seng Giaw, who is very much respected even outsude the ranks of the DAP has been making veiled comments about the excesses of the Pulau Pinang state government led by Tokong.

Tan Seng Giaw laments about Pulau Pinang on Facebook

It is no secret that Tokong is trying to bully Tan Seng Giaw out of the political scene like Boo Cheng Hau of Johor has, and much like his bully-of-a-father the Emperor Lim Kit Siang who killed off those opposed to him in DAP namely Lee Lam Thye and Hu Sepang.  Lee Lam Thye would have been the leader of the DAP had Lim Kit Siang not cheated and had the DAP election results his way. Lam Thye resigned from the DAP and politics.

To mitigate the damage, the Emperor made a speech saying the DAP suffers a major setback in its struggle as a result of Lee Lam Thye’s resignation.

As for Seng Giaw, he would have had the highest votes in the DAP 2012 elections with Emperor Kit Siang getting 7th place, and the Tokong relegated to just a miserable party member.

So back to ‘leadership by example’ and the death of poor Nhaveen.  If the Chief Minister of Penang could commit corrupted acts and go about acting innocent, what are sexual assault and bullying compared to that?  It’s embedded in the Pulau Pinang genes now by its political leadership.

Therefore,  the Pulau Pinang state government has itself to blame for bringing the culture of terror into the state and encouraged its citizens to behave like its leaders.

You belajar dulu jadi Menteri, lepas tu baru bercakap. Sebab, kita kena ingat. Dalam politik ni kita jangan cakap besar!

Itulah kata-kata Menteri Kerajaan Padang Rengas yang ditujukan kepada Menteri Pelancongan, Kesenian, Kebudayaan, Belia dan Sukan Sarawak Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah selepas Abdul Karim menyatakan ketidaksetujuan beliau dengan cadangan mengenakan cukai bilik bagi hotel-hotel di negeri Sarawak.

You cakap besar, you tunjuk samseng, kita lebih samseng lagi.

Saya rasa tidak ada sesiapa pun yang akan mempertikaikan siapa samseng paling besar di negara ini.

‘Brutoh Lu!”

Tindakan Nazri tersebut telah dipandang oleh bukan sahaja rakyat negeri Sarawak, malah seluruh Malaysia sebagai biadab dan keterlaluan.  Ianya diihat sebagai takbur dan merosakkan usaha Najib Razak yang menjadi Perdana Menteri pertama yang membawa lebih banyak pembangunan kepada Sabah dan Sarawak setelah diabaikan sekian lama oleh Perdana Menteri yang mempunyai 22 tahun peluang.

Ianya seolah-olah beliau tidak menghormati semangat setiakawan parti-parti komponen Barisan Nasional, dan juga seolah-olah beliau bertindak sebagai seorang Menteri di dalam kerajaan beliau sendiri.

Tidak cukup dengan penghinaan yang telah dilakukan, beliau terus menghina Abdul Karim dengan gelaran “Menteri Setahun Jagung.”

Nazri menggelar Abdul Karim “Menteri Setahun Jagung”

Reaksi pertama ditunjukkan oleh Ketua Menteri Sarawak, Abang Zohari yang lebih dikenali sebagai Abang Jo.  Beliau telah mengeluarkan kenyataan menarik keluar penyertaan negeri Sarawak dari Lembaga Pelancongan Negara.

Kenyataan dari Pejabat Ketua Menteri Sarawak

Bagaimanapun, Nazri dengan bongkaknya berkata “Kehidupan akan berterusan dan tiada apa-apa pun yang terjejas (dari penarikan diri negeri Sarawak itu).”

Reaksi seterusnya dari Menteri-Menteri kabinet Malaysia adalah dari Abdul Rahman Dahlan yang berasal dari Sabah dan juga Fadillah Yusof dari Sarawak yang juga merupakan Pengerusi Belia Barisan Nasional negeri Sarawak.

Twitter Abdul Rahman Dahlan yang menyelar tindakan Nazri

Mungkin Nazri merasakan dirinya besar.  Bukan sahaja beliau akui beliau lebih samseng dari orang lain, malah merasakan juga bahawa beliau lebih besar dari orang lain.  Beliau pernah berkata bahawa beliau lebih besar dari Ketua Jabatan Hal Ehwal Khas, Puad Zarkashi, semasa mengulas kenyataan Puad menyuruh kedua-dua individu yang menyebabkan kemelut terkini FGV untuk meletak jawatan.

Walaupun dalam video di atas Menteri Kerajaan Padang Rengas tersebut menyatakan bahawa tiada sesiapa patut bercakap besar dalam politik, beliau sering bercakap tak serupa bikin.

Sikap besar kepala beliau dikongsi bersama oleh isteri muda beliau yang juga merupakan Timbalan Menteri Kerajaan Padang Rengas, Haflin.  Haflin, yang bukan Datin Bergelar kerana merupakan BUKAN isteri pertama yang masih hidup, telah mengejek Abdul Karim melalui akaun Instagram beliau.

Ejekan Haflin mengenai kenyataan “setahun jagung”

Haflin juga telah mengherdik mereka yang tidak bersetuju dengan perbuatan Nazri.

Haflin memarahi orang yang membuat komen negatif terhadap Nazri

Haflin adalah Timbalan Menteri Kerajaan Padang Rengas kerana sering menjalankan tugas-tugas di luar negeri bagi ihak beliau sedangkan Kementerian Pelancongan masih ada Timbalan Menteri, KSU, TKSU serta Ketua Pengarah Kementerian yang sepatutnya membuat tugas tersebut.

Siapa Haflin? Adakah beliau juga besar dari Abdul Karim dan Puad Zarkashi?

Apabila disoal siapakah dia dalam Kementerian Pelancongan, ini jawapan beliau:

Saya rasa orang-orang yang sering membalun Rosmah Mansor pun kini tahu Rosmah tak kepoh macam si Haflin.  Malah Rosmah banyak menghabiskan masa memberi makan dan mengaji bersama anak-anak yatim dan para pelajar tahfiz hampir setiap malam di kediaman beliau.

Nazri bagaikan tidak menghiraukan kesan yang mungkin akan menjejaskan usaha Barisan Nasional Sarawak untuk memenangi pilihanraya DUN Pujut.  Dalam video di atas, Nazri menyatakan bahawa DUN Pujut memang milik DAP. Sekiranya BN Sarawak kalah di Pujut maka ianya tidak memberi kesan kepada BN.

Persoalannya ialah: adakah tindak-tanduk Nazri ini dilakukan untuk mengalihkan tumpuan para pemerhati politik dan rakyat dari kemelut yang dihadapi rakan baik beliau Lim Guan Eng?

Buddy-buddy gittew – Samseng Utara dan Samseng Padang Rengas

Lim Guan Eng yang kini bukan sahaja cuba menyelamatkan diri dari dibicarakan di atas tuduhan perlakuan rasuah, tetapi juga mengenai kepincangan pentadbiran kerajaan negeri Pulau Pinang serta kelemahan pengurusan kewangan negeri.  Nazri yang secara terbuka berkawan dan memberi sokongan kepada Lim Guan Eng mungkin berfikir beliau perlu mengalihkan perhatian ramai dari isu Lim Guan Eng kepada Sarawak.

Tidak hairanlah apabila wanita pengamal media sosial tersohor Cik Lim Sian See juga membuat kenyataan mengenai perangai samseng Nazri yang dipelajari dari sahabat karibnya dari Pulau Pinang itu.

Gambar yang dikongsi oleh Cik Lim Sian See mengenai Nazri dan Tokong

Mahu tidak mahu Najib Razak juga yang kini terpaksa membersihkan najis yang telah dilepaskan oleh Nazri.  Telah terlalu banyak yang dilabur oleh Najib Razak untuk menentukan pembangunan yang dibawa ke Sabah dan Sarawak akan membantu menaik taraf kehidupan rakyat di kedua-dua buah negeri tersebut dengan harapan mereka terus memberi sokongan padu kepada kerajaan Barisan Nasional baik di peringkat negeri mahupun pusat.  Terpaksalah Najib Razak membuat satu keputusan yang jitu untuk mengatasi najis yang telah dilemparkan oleh Nazri kepada rakyat Sarawak.

Sudah tiba masanya samseng tersebut diajar makna adab kerana perbuatannya terhadap sokongan yang diraih Najib Razak dari Sarawak itu tidak lain tidak bukan tetapi umpama Julius Caesar ditikam oleh Brutus dari belakang.

Brutoh la!

It has been a while that I have actually driven late at night in Kuala Lumpur, a city that city-dwellers claim to have become more and more unaffordable to live in.  So, I took a drive last night just to see how it looks like mid-Ramadhan.  I shun driving through KL towards the end of Ramadhan because there would be a mad rush for season end bargains.  The middle of Ramadhan should be alright for a drive.

I was wrong.  I used to be able to park my car in front of the embassy of Nepal on Jalan Ampang (behind St John’s primary school) and walk across the Klang river for a plate of roti canai on previous years’ Ramadhan night.  However last night, the jam started just after the intersection between Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Ampang as cars tried to get to the Masjid India and Capital Square areas.  Parked cars lined the sides of Jalan Ampang from across Sunway Tower all the way to Jalan Melaka!

A friend who works at a very famous textile mall in the Masjid India area confided that sales this Ramadhan has so far exceeded the total sales for Ramadhan 2016.  And it has only been 15 days since the beginning of Ramadhan with another two weeks to go.

I have not gone to see the sales of Naelofar scarves.  If hundreds of dUCk scarves costing RM800 each could all disappear from the shelf within five minutes, I expect a mad scramble for the Naelofar ones which have gone on sale one week before Ramadhan even started!

What about the Ramadhan buffets?

Ramadhan buffets are generally dearer compared to last year.  I have had the chance to sample some by both invitations and personal visits.  I have not seen one that is not full, be it at one that costs RM65 per head or the one that charges RM218 per head.  And most are not corporate invites as they throng these venues in shorts and t-shirts, and often than not I see long tables of families, not co-workers, enjoying their Ramadhan buffet.  Even university students swamped the RM65 ones, something unthinkable back in the mid-1980s.

At one venue the hotel car park was full that I had to park next to the waste bins near the hotel’s goods delivery area!  I was lucky to have gotten that spot as I see scores of people having to walk from afar after parking their car by the roadside.

So, how oppressed are the Malaysians financially?  Is it true that it used to be better two Prime Ministers ago?

Consumer spending in Malaysia over 10 years (Trading Economics/Department of Statistics Malaysia)

If you look at the graph above on consuer spending in Malaysia over the last ten years, despite claims that RM1 could get you many things back then compared to now, consumer spending in Malaysia has been on the upward trend.  If you look at your social media accounts, even university students can afford to go on a holiday in Bali and Lombok now when the farthest they would go back in the 1990s was a weekend in Port Dickson.  Students in the 1990s could hardly afford a flight to Kota Kinabalu.

Consumer spending increased to RM152 billion in the first quarter of this year from RM150 billion in the last quarter of 2016 and averaged RM101.7 billion from 2005 until the first quarter of 2017.  The lowest consumer spending by Malaysian was in the second quarter of 2005 when it was RM56.8 billion and peaked at RM153.5 billion in the second quarter of 2016 – exactly the period when whining Malaysians complained without facts that the country is on the brink of financial doom.

As a matter of fact according to the Department of Statistics of Malaysia, the median and mean monthly salary and wages paid to employees in 2016 have increased by 6.2 and 6.3 percent respectively compared to 2015.

This is also helped by the fact that sales tax has gone down from the 10 percent sales tax (and 6 percent service tax) that were not fully remitted to the government due to the suspected underdeclaring of sales and profits, to just 6 percent Goods and Services Tax.

Sales Tax in Malaysia (Trading Economics/Malaysian Inland Revenue Department)

Corporate Tax, despite claims that the government has been charging corporations more, has been brought down to just 24 percent in 2016 from 30 percent back in 1997.

Even the April 2017 numbers for Year-to-Date car sales figures in Malaysia had increased compared to the corresponding period in 2016.

And the government continues to make life more affordable in especially Kuala Lumpur, the city many big spenders complain is getting expensive to live in.  The Light Rapid Transit system that was originally built especially for the 1998 Commonwealth Games, has now been extended in service to connect Puchong and Putra Heights, while by 17 July 2017 the Mass Rapid Transit Line 1 will connect Sungai Buloh to Kajang directly meeting the KTM Komuter in Sungai Buloh and Kajang, while meeting directly with the LRT at Pasar Seni, and is within walking distance with the KL Monorail at Bukit Bintang.

The LRT will further extend from Bandar Utama to Johan Setia, south of Port Klang, and will be passing Tropicana, Glenmarie, Shah Alam stadium, UiTM, Bukit Raja, Sri Andalas and Bukit Tinggi.  The construction of LRT extension (known as LRT 3) has already commenced.

The MRT Line 2, which has also begun its site clearing phase will be from Sungai Buloh to Putrajaya, passing through Sri Damansara, Kepong, Jinjang, Sentul, Titiwangsa where it will meet with the KL Monorail and LRT Ampang/Seri Petaling lines before going through Kampung Baru, Ampang Park, KLCC East, TRX, Bandar Malaysia, Kuchai, Bandar Tasik Selatan where it meets with the LRT, ERL and KTM Komuter, Serdang, Seri Kembangan, and Cyberjaya.

Meanwhile KTM Komuter will have a service linking its station at Subang Jaya with the Subang Skypark Terminal.

These are all ways initiated by the government to make connectivity better and cost of living lesser for the people of the Klang Valley.  At least, no false promises such as abolishing tolls have been made, such as the one made by the DAP-led state government in 2007 which have not only gone unfulfilled, but also reneged on by introducing not only tolls for Pulau Pinang voters to shoulder, but also having to foot higher parking charges statewide.

Statement by the Pulau Pinang state government promising a tolled highway

So, stop complaining saying things are unbearably expensive because figures show more people can afford to splurge, and stop telling lies in this holy month of Ramadhan, for those who claim to be Muslims or decent, refined and educated human beings.

Recently Azmin Ali announced a two and a half months bonus for Selangor civil servants. The civil servants rejoiced at hearing this news and I am sure Azmin cheered himself.

He stands to get almost RM73,000 as his pay is RM29,000 per month.

With two weeks to go till the end of Ramadhan, news leaked out that the confirmation of any bonus payout will only be made known this coming Tuesday. And already netizens are up in arms over it.



And it seems Pulau Pinang is mulling to cancel its binus payout due to short of funds, as seen in the discussion below:


The Pulau Pinang state government had recently announced that it will give bonus to its civil servants, but with certains terms attached:





The bonus is for 0.75 months or RM1,000 minimum, whichever is higher. This goes to show that the Pulau Pinang government is no longer cash rich.

In order to be able to pay the bonus out, and to continue keep the administration running, the Pulau Pinang state legislative assembly recently passed an enactment to allow the state government to take an undisclosed amount of cash loan from the EXIM Bank of China.

As in the words of Tokong Chao Ah Beng, “borrow money to make more money.”


It seems that the business of running a state government is all too easy. It does not matter how you manage the finances, if you run short of cash, borrow.

And it does not matter who has to shoulder the burden of repaying this debt. According to portal Utaranews, each Penang Lang will have to pay back RM28,000 for this loan..

What does Tokong care? He’s going to jail and he’ll be fed and cared using the money that the Penang suckers pay in the form of taxes. So not only do they have to bear RM28,000 each, but in fact RM28,000 + x being the anount Tokong will be living off them.

This shows how the Pakatan-led states government is totally not in sync with the wishes and wants of the rakyat. They are always dancing to their own tempo, and not with the rakyat – just like this pathetic attempt by DAP MP for Bukit Mertajam, Steven Sim Chee Keong, to be in sync with his constituents.

​​​

After Nurul Izzah announced that the GST is to remain if Pakatan comes into power, Penang’s charged-with-corruption leader Lim Guan Eng aka Tokong has corrected Nurul Izzah’s statement by saying the GST will be zero-rated for all.

In other words, no sales tax would be collected.

Going by simple bookkeeping convention if you lose something, something has to gain.

For example, according to Tokong the hike in penalties does not translate into higher water tariffs. What Tokong is saying is that if I loan you RM10,000 and ask you to pay me back RM1,000 a month plus RM500 in addition to that as a penalty, it means that you are only paying me RM1,000 even if your pocket is RM1,500 lesser every month.

Therefore, at the end of 10 months you would have paid me RM15,000 but I give you receipts totalling only RM10,000.

This is the logic given by Tokong to justify his wanting to increase water tariffs for the fourth time since being in power.


His excuse that it is to reduce wastage is actually his way of telling his DAP comrades in Selangor that they are all idiots for giving out free water and encouraging wastage.

Well done Teresa Kok et al – Tokong has just proven me right about you and your fellow idiots in Selangor.

The Penang State government, being the largest holder of paid-up capital (55 percent) for the Perbadanan Bekalan Air Holdings Berhad (PBAHB) through State Secretary Incorporated (SSI) had also increased the raw water intake fee from 3 sen per cubic meter to 6 sen since January 1st.

Perbadanan Bekalan Air Pulau Pinang Sdn Bhd as the operator then has to incorporate this increase into its treatment and production costs and pass that on to the consumers.

And you wonder why tariffs have been increased four times?

The best part is that Tokong had the cheek to ask TNB to reduce electricity tariffs.


If Tokong is so concerned about costs being passed down to the consumers, why hasn’t he fulfilled his 2008 election promise to abolish the Sungai Nyior toll?


As blogger and Tokong’s archnemesis Miss Lim Sian See wrote on her Facebook page:

Water services situation in Penang.


BEFORE DAP took over Penang in 2008:

– Never had any water rationing before.

– Lowest Non-Revenue Water (NRW) or water loss in Malaysia.

– Lowest rates in Malaysia.

– Penang Bekalan Air (PBA) is the company that supplies and manages water in Penang.

– No increase in water rates or surcharge for 15 years from 1993 to 2008.


Penang BN never bragged about this accomplishment while in power)

————–
AFTER DAP took over Penang in 2008:

– Never had any water rationing before.

– Lowest Non-Revenue Water (NRW) or water loss in Malaysia.

– Lowest rates in Malaysia.

– Penang Bekalan Air (PBA) is the company that supplies and manages water in Penang.

– 4 increases in water rates and surcharges in 9 years since 2008. 
DAP brags about this all the time claiming that due to good governance and CAT that Penang has never had any water rationing, Lowest NRW, lowest rates etc – exactly as the decades before DAP took power.


MORAL OF STORY: You need to be an arrogant lying braggart with no shame in taking credit of other people’s work in order to stay in power.
LSS.

————————————————-

Tokong is not pleased with the attacks against the hike in water tariffs, especially when he cannot refute what were said by especially Rahman Dahlan and Lim Sian See.

I don’t know why BN does not understand ‘ilmu hisab’ (mathematics). Don’t tell me they do not know what zero means? Zero means nought, ‘kosong’, ‘ling su’ and ‘suzhiyam,’” Lim said at a press conference in Komtar, giving the words for “zero” in Bahasa Malaysia, Mandarin and Tamil.

We surely know what it means. You were referring to your IQ, Tokong.

Georgetown, Pulau Pinang

The title above sounds like the phrase “kong ka li kong” which in Kamus Besar Bahasa Indonesia describes as untrustworthyschemingconspiring in an evil plot.  It describes the DAP aptly.

I can imagine how majority of the voters in Penang must have felt in March 2008 when Pakatan Rakyat managed to wrestle Pulau Pinang from the clutches of BN’s Gerakan after almost 51 years.  It was a hopeful change for the better. Voters then probably thought that the Barisan Nasional did not really fit into their idea of progress and prosperity a clean and efficient government might have given.  They tried their luck thinking that it was worth a try to change.  The candidates from the Pakatan Rakyat, too, thought that it was worth a try although they did not envisage a victory.

When they did, they had no idea how to fulfill promises that had been made to the voters.  The most famous of all promises was that Kampung Buah Pala that had been in existence for decades, would remain standing.  This was the promise made by Anwar Ibrahim in the run up to the 12th General Elections.

In the video below you could see Anwar Ibrahim promising the residents of Kampung Buah Pala that he would speak to the Chief Minister-designate and within two weeks, officers from the Chief Minister-designate’s office would announce themselves that Kampung Buah Pala would be saved.

And the people of Kampung Buah Pala probably fell for it and helped vote Gerakan out on the 8th March 2008.  Less than three weeks later, the village that had stood for decades was bulldozed.

Tokong Lim Guan Eng claimed that he never knew Anwar had made a promise to the people of Kampung Buah Pala. After all, the Tokong does not know many things. He also admitted not knowing the actual market price of his swimming pool-less bungalow at Jalan Pinhorn.

Anwar could also claim that the person in the video above was not him – the person may look like him, but was not him.

However, a similar promise was made by a DAP candidate by the name of Sanisvara Nethaji Rayer s/o Rajaji Rayer.  Rayer promised that the village would remain a standing village should Professor Dr. P. Ramasamy (of DAP) remain in power. “As long as the Tiger of Bukit Gelugor (Karpal) represents us, I am sure no one can enter our territory,” he was quoted to have said.

Then, comes the gentrification of Pulau Pinang.  The poor, be they Chinese, Malay or Indians, are being systematically removed from their traditional dwelling in the name of progress and development.

The Tokong has also lied frequently to the people of Penang about its economic achievements.  It was riding on what was done previously by the Gerakan government during its first term, and could not show the same achievements under its own steam.

While his son has been charged in court for corrupt practices while holding the Chief Minister’s office, Emperor Lim Kit Siang is still asking for Najib Razak to resign over the 1MDB issue.

When is he going to ask his corrupt son to step down? Walk the talk, old fart!  Even your party’s publicist had said that the Tokong must step down if charged in court.

However, it is typical of DAP to NOT walk the talk.

Hopefully the voters of Penang and in other states have wised up.  DAP under the Emperor and Tokong has done more than what you have accused the BN of doing in just under two terms. If you realy hate BN but want people with integrity, you should really kick the Lims out, as well as perpetual liars like Tony Pua.  They are not indispensable.  And they are NOT as popular in DAP as Teresa Kok paints them to be.

Think carefully! Save your island before it sinks.
