Malacca election: Amid reformists’ gloom, some positives emerge

187
834

Here are some quick thoughts now that Barisan Nasional has cruised to a commanding victory in today’s Malacca state election.

Many who had hoped that the polls would reignite the momentum for reforms are feeling despondent. But there are some positives.

The first positive is that Umno-BN does not need Pas’ support to win. This means Pas’ bargaining power will be much reduced in the coming general election. Why would Umno want to allocate seats to Pas to contest in some Malay-majority seats when Umno would fancy its own chances in those seats? Full article on the Aliran website

Even after numerous losses from all previous by elections, the oppositions were still in the Dark. Take for example this Nov. 9th 2021 news statement from one of the opposition person, and you will know what I mean. Quote, DAP secretary general Anthony Loke speaks during a press conference at Melaka DAP’s headquarters November 9, 2021.  — “Loke also noted there is some discomfort among local DAP members in Melaka, but party leaders have explained that ” A LARGER OBJECTIVE REMAINS AT PLAY.

Uneasiness on the ground when roti becomes more expensive like sotong and siakap.

A larger objevtive is, when basic neccessities like utility tenaga bills no more subsidy come 2022, more will be awakened to stark reality that the rakyat will be suffering with inflation……losses too numerous even Uncle Wyatt will be shriekingly lost at counting.

In truth, everything is being controlled in Malaysia through AP (approved permit), import and export permits, licenses, monopoly and whatnot. The system was designed in such a way to enrich UMNO Malay elites? Therefore, they can control the prices of food and raw material from spiralling if they wanted to? The only reason they can’t control it is because they do not want to?

Apart from profiteers, reckless and useless spending from the public purse degrades the economy, raises taxes and thus reduces private spending. As the country fritters away its foreign reserves, the cost of getting more foreign currency (rates) go up, raising the cost of imported goods. The demand for foreign things is partly due to (a) brainwashing (propaganda) (b) rigged competition (c) imperialism.

Ray of Light

Resident Economist has advised us not to spend unnecessarily.
Uncle do reject imperialistic products, report rigged pricing and do beware not to be brainwashed and hence Anilnetto.com’s social responsibility to keep readets like Uncle Wyatt informed.

Sustainable solutions to the problem of high food prices lie in holistic policies and not knee-jerk reactions that the government has been taking.

These include intensive farming methods as well as adoption of technological advancements to generate higher yield and self-sufficiency levels, in order to reduce Malaysia’s dependence on food imports.

https://www.themalaysianinsight.com/s/354507

For the political class, the potential blood-sucking (unearned income) or kickbacks from improving farming/food security low. These are people who fly overseas even in a pandemic for holidays, food supplies, etc. They need millions of RM for houses abroad, “off-shore” bank wealth, political slush funds, etc. They prefer to [allegedly] authorise genetically mutilated maize, deadly herbicides or crony (AP) importers, or to divert public wealth to a mega-project [allegedly] costing 10-100 times its alternatives

The cost of consumer goods may rise again, following a cost hike in logistics and the supply chain, industry players warned.

This trend is expected to continue into next year, which may see food prices rise by 10% to 30% – including the price of cooking oil, which has increased up to 70% this month, while the prices of daily necessities and household products have increased by 5% to 10%.

https://www.themalaysianinsight.com/s/355363

glissantia

Cooking oil from palm oil is a simple example of outrages in policy, regulatory enforcement, business and crime. Government was reported as paying 23 manufacturers subsidy of RM1.05b/year for 85,000 tonne/month, but domestic consumption was only 45,000 tonne (in 2016). Yet, shortages occur occassionally.

Halloo shriek dear, why so hot under the collar, ain’t what was said the truth. “SEE THE BIGGER PICTURE”, ” FOR THE GREATER GOOD”, the opposition said. The catchphrase used, believe was for accepting the old guy to be their leader, when they became the ruling party back in 2018. Within 24 months all went KAPUT.

Before the clueless PM9 lectures everyone to use the Malay language, he should explain why his political party – UMNO (United Malays National Organization) – has been using English as its abbreviation since it was founded in 1946. UMNO’s headquarters is a building called PWTC (Putra World Trade Centre), not PPDP (Pusat Perdagangan Dunia Putra)?

See the picture?

Shriek says, “eyes dim and can’t see….brain wires has cross circuit”. Wyatt says humbug!

Shriek old boy, you must stop doing Tai Chi with abbreviations – PN, BN, PH and whatever else there is. See, how you conveniently left out DAP in your statement. There are only two, a Ruling Party and an Opposition Party with other ‘ ikan bilis’ parties within both. DAP has always been regarded as an opposition party.

Nazri Aziz, who criticised Kuala Lumpur for having too many street names and buildings in English, as if the capital is London. It’s laughable coming from a Malay leader who not only named his son “Jean Pierre Azize”, but also enrolled the 5-year-old junior into a French school in France.

You boys should also remember, your former Pakatan Harapan leader (TMM) said that nothing is etched on stone (PH 2018 Manifesto) after winning the 2018 election.  Therefore, you boys eager beavers should wait for the details before criticizing.

Also must note here that, we have a certain roving high ranking member of DAP who assumes he is a permanent ‘government’ of the nation. He makes demands, criticizes all n sundry but does not give solutions. Just hits and runs.

A little insight on birth rights, shriek. Birth comes with death. No escaping from it at all. One has to grow old, become weak, sometimes suffer in many ways then depart from this mortal world. Nothing is permanent. If one thinks otherwise one is simply living in an illusory world.

And yes, in a democratic country, government change every five years, not formed with birth right and that was why we had Pakatan Harapan as a ruling government back in May 2018. They must have been really clueless because they lasted for only two years. Now that is a story that needs to be ‘dissected piece by piece’.  Now here is a clue. As in any democratic country, the ruling government is formed by the political party or parties that gets the most vote. The political parties don’t vote themselves in.

Around 20 million people in China have joined the “new farmer” movement. The mostly young Chinese professionals, having grown tired of the hustle and bustle of daily life, are reportedly looking for deeper meaning to their existence. Shrinking social mobility and a widening wealth gap in society are also pushing more young people to trade the rat race for the simpler joys they find on the farm.

glissantia

This is happening in many countries. Star has reported on locals doing this, and even foreigners farming here.

Those who take this bold step have realised that (a) they have been under modern slavery (b) the modern economy is fragile (further shown by the insanity of globalisation, and the impact of covid) (c) oligarchs will keep exploiting people and destroying the biosphere.

glissantia

At least, the China government changed the economy to defend against economic imperialism.

In 2017 and 2018, domestic consumption contributed 76% of GDP growth; in comparison, the net contribution of international trade dropped from 8% in 2008 to 1.3% in 2018. Exports fell from 17% of total output in 2007 to 9% in 2017. Yet, the rest of the world became more dependent on China; it supplied 35% of global manufactured output -Mckinsey Global Institute

Vegetables price hike due to climate change – less harvest in China, imported vegetables price hike.

Time to get jobless graduates to venture into urban farming. In fact Singapore Polytechnic is now offering Diploma in Advanced Urban Farming.

The Agricultural Department and FAMA have informed us that the hike in vegetable prices (up to 200%) in Penang was due to the uncertain weather and rain that had affected the vegetable supply and destroyed some vegetables in farms in Cameron Highlands, Pahang.

In the battle against industrial farming, “biodynamics” is one approach. It emphasises that the famerm should be self-sustaining, or use only local inputs. Cow dung plays a big part.
