But one thing is for sure, it was illegally grabbed and stolen through dubious and (by … politicians like …. Hee who immediately in the aftermath could afford a new mercedes benz.)

Dumbo DAP=UMNO! Who says this is a local council election?

Don’t you understand English? The first paragraph of this article explains all! Dumbo!


What else can you do but calling other people “dumbo” ?


Please stop promoting a LIE !!

2. Those who are “standing for election” will NOT get elected.

3. And the “council”, they are NOT City Council.

What Lim Guan Eng has promised the Penangites is a Local City Council election.

Not this.

Please stop promoting this LIE !!!
