PKFZ: The barometer of Malaysian government’s vote-ability

Me handphone beeped a text message this morning:

10/12: Former Port Klang Authority General Manager, Datin Paduka OC Phang and two others were arrested over the PKFZ issue. They will be charged in Klang today./The Star

Nice.

Now let us hear from politicians who dare to stand up for principles and accountability to the people of Malaysia.

Other politicians’ voices, please, besides Ong Tee Keat. We already know he has trail blazed the way forward in breaking the iceberg of this huge financial scandal Malaysia can do without.

Anyone else from MCA daring to go against corruption?

Let me hear from others who may have some hidden strength of character undetected by voters. Never, never be shy to promote your beliefs to your real constituents out there. MCA is just a tiny platform for your political relevancy. May I remind you, your BIG target to win over is Malaysians. Orang putih ke, orang hitam ke, orang coklat ke…  doesn’t matter. (I just love this colourful line of Susan Lankaster’s from me favorite Malaysian movie Mekanik. See the youtube clip open at 5:45 – 6:02)

We already have a brave young one from Pemuda UMNO who has asked for force of the law to come down hard on those gluttons nibbling off chunks of the PKFZ gravy train.

Bravo, Khairy Jamaluddin!

If UMNO and MCA keeps on upgrading their level of accountability and adherence to rules of governance, no sane voter will begrudge them the reward of a huge mandate in the next General Election.

I hate monopoly, the Supremme bullying kind of business ~Malaysiakini

I absolutely respect democracy, in its many forms.

But I absolutely hate monopolies.

It makes life harder and makes us feel very small because the monopolies treat us like we’re dum dums.

I hate monopolies galore in Malaysia today which takes away my right to have choices. I hate these monopolies:

1. Electricity
2. Telecoms
3. Water

Some of you guys may say I’m stupid to complain, cos there’s nothing I can do about it, those are essentials, lar.

What about those private companies which are making loads off us taxpayers? Them private companies monopolying:

1. Health check up foreign workers (Fomema)
2. Public/private vehicles inspection (Puspakom)

You can top up somemore on this menu at your pleasure, please…

Puiihhh!

And what’s this I’m hearing now? This about to be grand big monopoly company, after crying and complaining to Najib Tun Razak, is now wanting to sue the government for 50million? And wants to sue another 100million from the Transport Ministry and its Minister?

What has it done to justify this mega suit? Maybe this Supremme wants to try to break Vincent Tan’s mega suit record?

Seems to me this Supremme Systems Sdn Bhd sure ain’t got a patriotic soul (hey, if you recall, our economy’s in some kind of economic crisis now, can’t afford to spare some dimes for this?). But I’m sure it’s gonna be looking forward to be so damn rich with miniscule effort as it sure looks like aiming to take big money out of our country’s kitty based on the reason ‘loss of potential income’.

Looking back, if the e-Kesihatan contract award to Supremme goes as planned to run medical check-ups on commercial drivers, would it have averted our road accidents? Would this be the ONE factor to bring down Malaysia’s horrific road accidents?

We would be stupid to think so, knowing very well that  us smiley Malaysians turn from nice Dr. Jekylls into the most terrifying versions of Mr Hydes at a steering wheel. Mind you, we’re as normal as can be except when we’re gripped by the evil steering wheel. I wonder how e-Kesihatan would have trace that phenomenon. Maybe it has placed an order for a super duper mind bending machine to brainwash drivers during medical checkups before certifying them fit for the road. Hehehe….

Anyway taxpayers, better be prepared for the worse. We can start to wave away our MYR50 million + MYR100 million, Goodbye. And we can start to expect lesser funds distribution to the poor in coming hard times. All because some company wants its compensation for loss of potential income (off us taxpayers, mind you!).

Poor Malaysians.
