Which is the bigger ‘national embarrassment’?

661

I am not sure which is the bigger “national embarrassment”.

That this convicted criminal can talk with a straight face about 1MDB in Parliament? (Who does he think he’s kidding? Gullible voters?)

Or that some people are giving him celebrity treatment in the Johor state election campaign and (still) calling him their “boss”?

And the Speaker gives him an extra three minutes because of “gangguan” (interruptions)? Art, Art…

What an upside-down world we live in.

The government still needs to make up for the shortfall of funds of RM17 billion for the purpose of settling the principal and interest on 1MDB’s debt of RM38.8 billion for the period of 2022 to 2039.

Right now, is the Parliament, Independent, Neutral or Not ? It looks like its speaker is appointed by whoever is the ruling government , so as with the AG office and other law enforcement agencies etc, etc, etc..

Even when the Pakatan Harapan coalition won the 2018 election, they roped in TMM to be their coalition leader and continued with his legacy. After losing the people’s mandate, the opposition party supremo was shouting about reset and reset but did not bother to do it when they were the ruling government. WHY ?

WHICH IS THE BIGGER ‘ NATIONAL EMBRASSMENT ‘ 3 Mar 2022

========

In our opinion, it is neither. Dato’ Najib is simply a product of the system of governance left behind by a PM who had govern the nation for 22 years.

The biggest national embarrassment should be the dismantling of the separation of powers, that is the three independent branches of a democratic government which is the legislative, the executive, and the judiciary branch by which these 3 branches of government do not infringe upon each other’s constitutionally vested powers.

Reply to ” Ma DaBao dd 12 Mar 2022 2.43pm” There was an ancient scholar by the name of Zhuangzi (369-298 BCE) who once said, “The frog in the well knows nothing of the sea.”  Its a story of a frog who had always lived in his well. He believed his well to be all that existed. He was then visited by a sea turtle who told him of the great ocean. Upon hearing this, the frog realized he had a very limited view of the world. Meaning – We must be modest about the extent of our experiences. What… Read more »

FLOODS – WAS IT RAIN OR BAD DRAINS ? By DORAIRAJ NADASON /
Friday, 11 Mar 2022

https://www.thestar.com.my/opinion/columnists/comment/2022/03/11/floods—was-it-rain-or-bad-drains

========

Planning without thinking, projects and new townships without giving proper consideration to drainage system could possibly be the reason why there has been continuous flooding taking place. Old townships with broken drains, clogged drains, too small or inadequate to cope drains, new townships or maybe also new projects with cement waste and other rubbish dumped into drains by developer’s workers ( Not sure how they get their OC approved ) etc, etc, etc.

Cont. to P3b

Alpha Beta Omega can organise volunteering work to clear the drains of Penang. Can prevent unforseen flooding in near future.

Omega 888

You seem to be smart, maybe have good organizing skills in volunteering work. So, why don’t you start organizing the cleaning of not only the drains but also beaches, rivers, playgrounds, roadsides, Tamans etc, etc, etc in the state of Penang. Why always ask someone else to do it.

Johor Election 2022: Can Barisan Nasional Recapture The State On Its Own?

I think post Covid Singapore government will regulate number of daily entry of Malaysian workers, many in the past are without valid work permit. These people shuttling the causeway daily causing jam. About time for the Johor state government to work with The Royalty to have proper strategies to create jobs (inviting more foreign investment). But Johoreans must be efficient when work locally although they can work doubly hard in Singapore!

If Johoreans (or others) work as hard in Johor as in Singapore, will they get more income – or the same as everyone else due to “special considerations”?

Silverberg

The coming Johor MB has proclaimed recently that Singapore can be better with Umno. Now Umno has 2/3 majority in Johor, it is time to prove its good governance to create high paying jobs for Johoreans, and reverse the talent flow between the causeway.

Good indication of the coming MB’s and UMNO’s confusion or intransigence. Racial discrimination is a crime in Singapore. To see that its Malays have only the same competitive issues as anyone else there, see their success and confidence on CNA.

Reply to – ” glissantia 8 Mar 2022 5.04pm ” Infrastructure for water dispersing drainage system is already there. This infrastructure needs to be improved upon and new drainage infrastructure needs to be created if the old ones are inadequate. It not possible they do not understand these.  Whatever reasons they are giving now are all simply excuses. The question is, do they have an interest in wanting to solve the flood problem. Because if they really do and care, they would have already taken action much much earlier. And of course the rakyat have a role to play in all these… Read more »

Tengku Zafrul said that until the end of February 2022, 1MDB’s total debt was about RM38.8 billion, comprising RM32.3 billion in principal debt and RM6.5 billion in interest.
