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.

See, an ambitious man’s climb up the MCA ladder can just be terminated. Just like that. Like Chan Kong Choy’s. Breaking news from Malaysiakini

You see, he has spent donkey years climbing up the ladder, became Youth Chief, backed up team B, became Deputy Chief Honcho and Minister of Transport, PKFZ legacy from Mr Ling Liong Sik’s time. No sweat, only politicking ma. But now, pooff… Floored by a simple thing called ‘health’. Goodbye, political career!

On the other side, another ambitious man can climb and climb and climb, and poooff… Floored by a simple thing called ‘sex’. But lookie here… He has returned! In another form… as his son!!!

You see, he has spent donkey years building up his support base in the little kingdom in Labis, became Health minister… also got chance to be MCA President next round. Cannot lah just give up like that. Welcome back, Soi Lek!

Whatever little this General Election has in terms of excitement is now starting to pale in comparison with what the MCA party election can bring later this year.

Whoopie.
