….MY COMMENTS …”ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE RACIAL ISSUES YOU HAVE CONDEMNED AND THE LANGUAGE WAS A BIT OVERBOARD”..????!!!! I WOULD SUGGEST , WHEN YOU HAVE TIME, TAKE A LOOK AT THE COMMENTS SPEWED FORTH ON THE REBUKE OF MAHATHIR’S ATROCITY’ BLOGGING BY OUR BRAVE YOUNG LADY BLOGGER,……SOME OF THEM ARE EVEN MORE HARD HITTING/WELL -OVERBOARD. SIMPLE ‘WELL BEHAVED’ COMMENTS CAN BE LIKENED TO HITTING A SPOILT CHILD WITH LONG BEANS, INSTEAD OF USING AN APPROPRIATE THIN LONG CANE.

It is very rude to write in all capital letters.

Anil, There is an imposter! The othe SamG is not me. You know my e-mail ID.
(this is not mine)
What happened to the Gerakan offer to the Penang State Givt to bring in Foreign Investment?
Why should they even offer to assist?
Looks for publicity…?

AlbertG

Hey Eu Soon, Pearl & Tunglang, what happen. No sign or are you all secretly applying for the job. I will vote for the 3 of you you indicate you are interested. At least Gerakan K has said he was not interested.

Ong Eu Soon

I already make it clear. I am not interested in electoral politic. Stop being stupid! I reserve all the rights to voice out and stand out against any politician under the sun….

tunglang

AlbertG, I will let you guess. Suspense is good for your intellect. Not knowing my intention is killing.

DAP = UMNO

This is a scam by Lim Guan Eng !

He promised a local council election and delivered an “NGO” election.

What the…

kingkong

At least there is an election. People like Ong, Pearl and you can go for it. But under Gerakan, no election and cannot even voice out and stand for it

SamG

What happened to the Gerakan offer to the Penang State Givt to bring in Foreign Investment?
Why should they even offer to assist?
Looks for publicity…?

SamG

On the Local Council polls – Ah Soon! This is one platform you can start with. See if you can convince the local councils and your fellow councillors if you have the “best” plans.
Take up the challenge if you want to put your money where your mouth is.

Gerakan K

LOL

Nobody interested !!!

Please extend the application date until next term !!!

Keane

I doubt Gerakan will still exist after the ‘next term’.

Pinang Boy

Is there a role for Gerakan K, Eu Soon, Pearl, tunglang and Charlie Oscar to serve as a counsilor?

ANIL FYA – comment taken fm Malay Mail on Astro Row Escalates, this too matters ha ha ha The whole of Malaysia is talking about this case…. I hope the judge will do the right thing, even his home is effected during rain, like everyone else, he pays monthly, like everyone else – he gets frustrated, angry, disappointed watching LIVE programs or normal and suddenly signals cuts off. Besides, Ananda has the responsibility to own up and be a gentleman, he got a few years left, the fact is THE TRUTH must prevail la. AK be a gentle and dont… Read more »
