BR1Mful of relief but none for struggling Malaysia SME middle class

Here we go again… handout time again.

Good intention, but why not the government of Barisan Nasional think about really giving a useable lifeline to those who can and able to better generate the economy so that those who always received BR1M will not be needing it anymore cos they already can fend for themselves?

Damnit… Why don’t the Najib Razak government give a fishing line to those who will fish, not just handing out them fishes whenever you like it to those marhean to shore up some political uppance over some pakatan! Come to think of it, BR1M is like a shade of UB40

Maybe Najib Razak and his cabinet of the wealthy ministers enjoying annual overseas holidays (on the rakyat’s charge) really do not know the reality on the ground.

Maybe Idris Jala too engrossed with the labs (brings to mind those poor lab rats, sacrificed for somebody’s need to play, oops, experiment). Maybe Pemandu‘s GPS is malfunctioned. One silly elite rich minister also likes study labs… (duh, you mean, you know nothing about your people’s misery until you get installed as Minister, set up labs to test them mice?)

Makes you wonder if BN has really lost it and will be lost forever…

Ain’t it more helpful and more realistic to just allow 15% early EPF withdrawal for those 45 to 49 years old. This more helpful and value added to this group who contributes most to SME middle class economic survival in hard economic times. BRIM is no use to economically aid this entrepreneurially inclined group, don’t the Najib Razak government know?

Hey PM, your economic advisors better not ignore this important group, or your political advisors will have a losing time coming GE.

I offer you this FOC advice so that BN can kill 2 birds with one stone. Show some love to your middle class and at the same time you prove to the world that there are still funds in KWSP. That’ll will shut up your detractors.

And we rakyat will have our share of fun watching both sides working really hard for real to win our love.

Protest at Australian Hi Comm and KJ the chameleon

“Join us for a peaceful protest against the Aussie lawmakers’ interfering. Wednesday 17th, 10am at Aussie HiComm, Jalan Yap Kwan Seng.” invited the sms.

Twaang… struck a patriotic chord within my Malaysian soul.

It is terribly insolent to intimidate a sovereign neighbour country’s courts or influence the course of its rule of law, don’t you think? I wonder why these 50 Australian lawmakers didn’t protest earlier before the trial started. They have internet news in Australia too, you know.

And so, this blogger quickly made a few phone calls to cancel some Chinese New Year visits to relatives. The ang pows will have to give way. And not to mention, my tooth’s broken filling’s visit to the dentist.

With a gnashing pain on tongue (beware how sharp a broken filling is, ouch.) I joined the bloggers protest.

I thought it was a bloggers protest, nothing to do with political parties? Rocky said so to reporters and I believe him.

But, I was distracted by the large crowd of BN youth + a sprinkling of ladies.

MCA youth towkays not even one in sight. MIC youths were there.

Makkal Sakti Party won for the most catchy looking banners of the day. But, need to catch up on their maths.

Then I saw Khairy Jamaluddin making a speech denouncing the naughty 50 Aussie lawmakers’ action.

That’s nice, here was a BN youth leader actually demonstrating his understanding of the rule of law and sovereign rights.

Too bad it doesn’t jive with public perception of him. You remember the stories, the SIL (son in law), ECM Libra, the government interfering 4th floor image that just won’t go away even as he may have gotten over that part of oral history.

Truth be told, yesterday Khairy did good at the demo. But The Malaysian Insider is saying that Khairy’s got RM2million from Najib Razak for UMNO Youth to run some events. I hope Khairy the Oxbridge graduate realise that events only work for the moment only. Smart politicians make sure they work consistently with their publics, not just organise some events to show their concern or worse, ‘tunjuk power’.

If you dream of leaving a footprint in Malaysia politics game, Khairy, you’ve got to decide what you’re gonna be about. You’ve got to decide what principles you are going to stand up for. Rule of law? Human rights? For whom and by whom? We’ve already have one famously acknowledged ‘chameleon‘ and Malaysia is too small a country to accommodate more than that.

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.

The Kingmakers: Sabah, Sarawak & the 12th General Elections

Sabah and Sarawak the kingmakers??? Perhaps we need to re-think again:

.
A super Deepthroat divulged this:

He went to Dubai alone to meet DSAI. He could not meet DSAI in Malaysia without the others knowing. Went there to cut a deal. In truth what DSAI was saying about the 30 odd MPs who will defect are actually AAB group in UMNO. They know if they lose power all will be lost and that is why AAB since elections have been making popular decisions and showing that is also as progressive as DSAI and when he join PR the public will say he made a right decision. He will continue as PM until the next elections. DSAI will be the power behind the PM. the deal has already been discussed with the PR partners and they have accepted it all. TM , MH ,DSNAR all will be left behind and do not know what hit them. KJ is actually a DSAI sleeper in UMNO.

Was mission was to woo AAB daughter marry her and destroy UMNO from inside. This is DSAI ultimate revenge for all the wrong doing UMNO of TM did to him. Just check and see who sponsored KJ to Oxford. Lately you can see AAB and KJ have been bold.

Just something for all you to chew on and much more I know off. I know a lot because I also walk in the corridors of power that is the power of internet

cheers
xxxxx

if you read below article posted in MT , DSAI is now in Mumbai and out of Malaysia. Flight time from Dubai to Mumbai is only less then 2 hours and they are a lot of flights between these two places , more flights the from KL to Singapore. If you read the article I am posting below you can see DSAI was talking from Mumbai. Any body or even PKR can add any to it.

Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim Says He’ll Be In Power By September
Posted by Super Admin
Saturday, 17 May 2008

MUMBAI, INDIA: Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim said Friday (16 May) he would have enough support to topple Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s government by September.

Anwar told reporters that his People’s Justice Party needed just 30 members to gain a simple majority in parliament. His party controls 82 seats in the legislature.

“By our calculation, we should move before 16 Sept,” he said during his visit to Mumbai, India’s financial and entertainment capital, for a lecture series on “Human Rights Awareness.”

The date is significant as his country celebrates 16 Sept as “Malaysia Day” _ commemorating the establishment of the Malaysian federation in 1963 by joining the provinces of Malaya, Singapore, Sabah and Sarawak.

Although Anwar has made such claims several times in the past, Friday was the first time he has given a specific timeframe to try to pull down the government.

He was ousted from government in 1998 by then-Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad in a power struggle amid accusations of corruption and sodomy. Anwar denied the charges, which he said were trumped up.

The sodomy charge was later overturned, but he served prison time after being convicted of corruption.

The corruption charge prevented him from holding public office until 14 Apr 2008, which meant he could not contest the 8 Mar general elections.

A record 82 opposition members from a three-party alliance led by Anwar were elected to the 222-member lower house in the elections. This shook the ruling National Front’s grip on governance for the first time in 40 years.

Anwar said last month that it won’t be long before he is elected a lawmaker in a by-election.

“We have enough numbers now. But we want the transition to be peaceful and democratic,” he said Friday.

He has said any government he forms will change Malaysia’s system of promoting majority ethnic Malays _ Anwar himself is Malay _ in government contracts, jobs and education over ethnic Chinese and Indian Malaysians.

“Many ruling party members of parliament know that the time for racial politics is over,” said Anwar, adding that he was confident that governing party members would defect to his side. (AP)

A Sabah & Sarawak MP defection was a ploy (Red herring) by DSAI to deflect from the real crossovers taking place. All attention and energy is on the East Malaysian MP’s and the UMNO MP’s in West Malaysia were free to meet up with DSAI’s gang and plan the defections. Poor East Malaysian MP’s , for once they thought they were the King Makers and now all know what they are up to. Just like beggars suddenly striking the jackpot but only a fool’s jackpot .DSAI will not form a federal government with these spineless MP’s.

REMEMBER DSAI and AAB body language when they meet in the opening day of the parliament (The photo on the front page of the newspapers)

More to come as I get more info on the progress report of the UMNO MP’s. Sept date was only a ploy and a red herring. All going to take place in next 2 weeks time. No need to sack the PM because AAB will defeat the non-confidence vote with the help of PR and AAB Group UMNO Mp’s who will defect to PR. There will be a cabinet reshuffle so after. UMNO Ministers who will be retained are as follows because they will be the defectors

Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz
Datuk Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi ( When DSAI was sacked , he was in DSAI’s house everyday )
Datuk Mohd Zaid Ibrahim
Datuk Mohd Zin Mohamad
Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim
Datuk Shahrir Samad
Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek

and surprise

Datuk Azalina Othman

And no non-UMNO Ministers or Sabah UMNO Ministers will be retained but the vocal Sabah and Sarawak MP’s will be made ministers. Cabinet will be expanded to 30 Ministers, 38 Asst ministers and 30 parliamentary secretaries. Total will be 99 and balance MP’s will be given other important posts with good
salary. All will be happy and all will be taken care.

***
DSAI will not make a tactical move without the consent of DAP and PAS. All now are hunger for power after their appetite has been vetted by DSAI’s announcements that PR are now government in waiting.All politicans are the same and get corrupted with power. Look at Taiwan , South Korea ,Indonesia, Thailand , Philippines , Pakistan ,india , Israel and so on. They profess the perfect govermental principles when in opposition but what happen when they come in power. They only last for a term. Come fast and clean up the state coffers fast aftraid that they will not have another opturnity again. here else the former ruling party only rob the interest not the capital
