It is sad the honest folks at Kg Buah Pala has been misled time and again by you know who.

Why can’t they see that the state is helping them? Are they so blind or just noobs?

Stcin,
Yeah but the wrong party. However, there are plenty of guillible Malaysians around. Guess why even Kinabatangan MP can be elected into the Parliment.
Oooooi, where the hell is Darshan Singh? …..Darshan should thank god… that he’s dealing with Penang State government.
Back in Singapore, such fella would be tossed…

I heard Hindraf (could be) making this into a race issue. I believe the issue here is this – I hear tomorrow of an announcement of Hindraf. I am sure Human Rights Party will push this into an Indian issue. Look and see.

Kg.B.Pala folks should make a trip to Najib’s residence to request him to help. He was willing to help Saiful[Sodomy] to get a scholarship for unknown studies but the villagers have a genuine problem,so he should help out.Their land was (grabbed while under the watch of) his men and he,as their chief can ‘correct’ this…

A lot of time was wasted when the villagers were waging war against the Penang state government.

A BN state government would have bulldozed them over without any form of negotiation.

Now they are racing against time, can anyone be faulted? (besides Koh Tsu Koon)
