Toksah temberanglah, CEO MAS berhenti pasai Najib...

Photo published for Mahathir: Bellew quit because of Najib's meddling
CEO MAS BERHENTI

1.Tak usahlah nak bohong. Bellew berhenti kerana Najib campur tangan dalam urusan MAS tanpa rujuk kepada Pengarah dan Pengurus Syarikat.

2.Pesawat yang Najib nak beli, bukanlah pesawat yang diperlukan oleh MAS untuk penerbangan ke destinasi tertentu.

3.Saya yakin Najib tidak pun tanya MAS. Najib tidak peduli perancangan CEO atau pemilihan MAS. Biarlah MAS lingkup asalkan Najib dapat ambil gambar dengan Trump.

4.Jika boleh Najib ingin serah wang tunai sebanyak 20 Billion dollar (90 billion Ringgit) terus kepada Trump. Alangkah berkesannya jika dapat gambar Najib serah dua lori wang tunai dollar kepada Trump. Malangnya Trump tak mungkin terima dengan cara ini. Tetapi kalau kata nak beli kapal terbang ini lebih diplomatik.

5.Apa kata Bellew. Dia cuba hendak tunjuk bahawa ia bersetuju. Kononnya dakwaan saya tidak tepat. Tetapi ini tidak kurangkan perasaan malu dan kecewa kerana Najib tidak sedikit endah CEO MAS ini.

6.Apa nak buat. Kononnya perasaan patriotiknya tiba-tiba menyedar dirinya akan pentingnya ia kembali ke Ireland.

7.Syabas dan Tahniah kepada Najib. Belilah kapal terbang untuk perhiasan negara. - chedet

Bellew quit because of Najib’s meddling


PRU-14

1.Najib sedang meningkat usaha untuk menipu Pilihanraya.

2.Kali ini Najib mengarah SPRM menangkap pemimpin-pemimpin Parti lawan (Warisan) di Sabah. Matlamatnya ialah untuk melumpuh Warisan dengan menangkap Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal dan menakutkan penyokongnya.

3.Pegawai SPRM diugut untuk melaksana arahan Najib. Jika mereka tidak patuh kepada arahan Najib maka tindakan tertentu akan diambil terhadap mereka. Mereka mungkin diturun pangkat, ditukar ke jawatan lain yang lebih rendah, dimansuh hak pencen dan bermacam lagi.

4.Pegawai Tinggi Polis, pegawai di Jabatan Pendakwa Raya, Pengarah Syarikat dalam Khazanah semua ditakutkan supaya menyokong perbuatan salah oleh Najib untuk menang PRU.

5.Demikian juga pegawai-pegawai dari berbagai pejabat yang akan dilantik mengurus PRU. Mereka akan disuruh tipu untuk memberi kemenangan kepada Najib dalam PRU 14.

6.Kami dalam Pakatan Harapan sedar kami akan menang jika tidak ada penipuan dalam PRU. 90% dari pengundi yang berdaftar sudah pun nyatakan mereka tolak Najib.

7.Kami berjanji jika kakitangan Kerajaan yang akan mengurus PRU diugut dan didera oleh Najib dan kehilangan gaji, atau pangkat atau jawatan kami akan pulih balik mereka dan pendapatan mereka. Mereka akan kembali pegang jawatan yang telah dilucut dari mereka. Demikian juga mereka yang memberi maklumat kepada kami akan salah cara dan penipuan Najib. Kami akan selamatkan mereka.

8.Ini janji kami. Walaupun penipuan dilakukan oleh Najib kami tetap menang. Dan kami akan tunaikan janji kami.

9.Jangan takut untuk menolak arahan salah dari Najib dan konco-konconya. - chedet

Will GE14 be postponed to 2018...

Whoever is advising MO1 on strategy is a bigger moron than Moron One. Moron One's advisors are Super Morons. Everyone is asking when the 14th General Elections will be held. Well let me answer you. It will be held within the next NINE MONTHS.  So you can start campaigning now. 

The elections must be held latest by July / Aug 2018 ?? That is 9 - 10 months away. It will not be held in the last possible month. Some Elders say it will be held around  March 2018. If so, that is FIVE MONTHS away.

MO1's people have stopped talking about the really stupid Washington Bungle. The butt kissing was so jijik. Especially with MO1's voice trembling like a little boy.

I dont know what could have possibly made them want to arrest Shafie Apdal now - with just FIVE months or NINE months before the elections.  And today I have received a viral message detailing Musa Aman's fabulous wealth. The message is obviously coming out of Sabah. The Resistance is fighting back.

Whatever few votes that MO1 could hope to get from Sabah are now gone.  Sabah is no more your fixed deposit. Did you all know that Hindraf is running a very succcesful campaign among the Indian voters. The campaign is called "Zero Vote For The BN".

Someone should take this canpaign to Sabah.  "Zero Vote For The BN". Jangan fikir atau jangan risau if this campaign was started by the Hindraf. Its a great sound byte "Zero Votes For The BN".

At the rate they are bungling, it looks like indeed they will be getting zero votes. 

I want to run a poll folks. Please give me your views.  The poll will ask "Do you know anyone who will vote for the BN?" I am not asking if you will vote for the BN. I am sure you will not. I am asking if you know anyone who will vote for the BN?

I believe the BN may get only those 9 - 12 seats in Parliament which their internal polls have shown. Thats what I was told by the Elders. Sabah is gone. Sarawak is also gone.

I had lunch with the Pahang people today. Negeri Pahang aman sentosa. Kaya dengan tumbuh-tumbuhan . - ostb

Ke mana Shahrir Samad menghilang...

Masihkah beliau ada sebagai Pengerusi Felda atau sudah meletakkan jawatan?

Barangkali itu soalan yang bermain di fikiran ramai orang ketika ini berikutan beliau masih gagal memberikan sebarang respon atau jawapan terhadap beberapa siri pendedahan yang dibuat oleh Ahli Parlimen Pandan, Rafizi Ramli berhubung status pemilikan harta-harta Felda di London.

Sudah lebih seminggu berlalu sejak pendedahan pertama dibuat oleh Rafizi, namun sehingga ini kita masih belum mendengar lagi sebarang jawapan balas daripada daripada Shahrir mahu pun Felda.

Mengapa mengambil masa terlalu lama?

Pendedahan Rafizi pada hakikatnya mudah saja - siapa sebenarnya pemilik semua hotel dan harta Felda di London itu?

Kenapa ia dinamakan atas syarikat yang didaftarkan di British Virgin Island dan ia pula didapati berbeza dengan syarikat yang tertera dalam laporan kewangan Felda sendiri?



Berdasarkan maklumat terbaru yang didedahkan semalam lebih mengejutkan kerana  syarikat yang didaftarkan di British Virgin Island itu sudah dibubarkan kerana yurannya tidak dibayar, jadi bagaimana dengan harta-harta tersebut?

Adakah harta-harta itu sudah dipindah-milik kepada syarikat lain atau diletakkan atas nama sesiapa?

Kenapa yuran tahunan syarikat tidak dibayar, sedangkan ia memiliki harta yang bernilai berjuta-juta ringgit?

Susahkah untuk Shahrir memberi semua jawapan kepada pertanyaan mudah Rafizi itu?

Apakah Felda tidak mempunyai fail dan rekod berkenaan harta-hartanya?

Oleh kerana Shahrir sudah mengumumkan sebelum ini bahawa Felda mahu menjual semua harta-harta tersebut untuk mengukuhkan aliran tunainya, bagaimana beliau mahu menjualnya  jika pertanyaan tentang siapa pemilik harta pun tidak mampu diperjelaskan? Baca seterusnya...

The systematic looting of FELDA fund...

How many Malaysians can still reassure themselves that, although they have a Prime Minister cum Finance Minister, who set up a giant slush-fund to finance vote buying and a hoard of diamonds for his wife (1MDB), the rest of their public institutions remain financially intact?

This week opposition MP Rafizi Ramli exposed the latest in a string of troubling irregularities to beset the FELDA fund, set up to support the rural farming communities: pointing even further towards the conclusion that systematic looting has been taking place of all Malaysia’s public funds by those entrusted to protect them.

The Kensington Grand Plaza Hotel in London is already part of a major investigation into FELDA given that it had been bought way over market price in 2014 (RM330 million allegedly three times its actual value) and fits a pattern of other spectacularly over-priced foreign property purchases – deals which have always seemed to benefit Najib’s cronies.

Now Ramli has revealed that investigations show the fund has been shockingly misleading in its reporting on these deals. Annual Reports and public financial statements are supposed to be audited bibles of truth and rectitude and yet FELDA gave untrue information.

The Grand Plaza

According to the MP, FELDA’s latest financial statements assert that the hotel is managed by Grand Plaza Kensington Ltd but owned by FIC London Hotel (Pte) Ltd. Crucially, says the MP, the statement goes on to say that both of these companies are based in the UK and are owned by the Felda subsidiary Felda Investment Corporation Sdn Bhd.

It’s not true. FIC London Hotel (Pte) Ltd is not based in the UK says Ramli, since there is no mention of it on the UK Company Register. In fact, the company is based in the British Virgin Islands, which is an opaque off-shore dominion that is regularly used by entities who do not want ownership details to be revealed.

So, first the FELDA management lied and then they hid the ownership of the over-priced hotels. Worse, the accountants who presumably signed off these statements failed to check even these most basic and public factual errors.

Rafizi made this statement at the start of the week and received no response from FELDA. He has therefore come up with further information, this time from the BVI Company Register, which provides (at great expense and considerable inconvenience) three pieces of information about companies incorporated on the island – when they were set up, who the agent is and if and when they cease to be active.


Image result for FIC London Hotel (Pte) Ltd.

Rafizi has found out that FIC London Hotel (Pte) Ltd ceased to be active in BVI in May last year. The reason being that it was struck off for failing to pay its company fees. So what, he rightly asks, has become of the ownership of this multi-million ringgit asset?

The former Chairman of FELDA, Isa Samad (above), has been picked up, questioned and then let go by the MACC over matters to do with this an a number of other similar ‘investments’ related to the fund’s notable foreign property spree that began around 2012 (after billions had been made from a stock market floatation). These include the Merdeka Palace Hotela in Kuching Hotel, which was previously owned by some of Chief Minister Johari’s closest associates and one of his sons and the Grand Borneo Hotel in Sabah. 

Najib’s personal involvement in such dealings have been clearest in the forcing through of a massive purchase by FELDA of a controversial oil palm plantation in Indonesia, Eagle High Planations, at way above market price from a known business crony of his, Peter Sondakh. Even Felda Global Ventures had originally balked at doing the deal, after publicity errupted over a plan for it to buy into the loss-making concern for $700 million.Continue reading

Terus bertahan,ambil cuti,letak jawatang atau kahwin...


Berikutan pengesahan Ketua Polis Negara, Mohamad Puzi Harun bahawa Ketua Pesuruhjaya SPRM, Dzulkifli Ahmad ketika ini sedang disiasat oleh PDRM berhubung dakwaan mempunyai hubungan sulit dengan seorang wanita yang dipercayai masih bersuami, kedudukan beliau sekarang nampaknya tidak lagi "cantik" di mata umum.

Daripada sosok yang digeruni kerana melakukan tangkapan demi tangkapan berkaitan rasuah, beliau kini sebaliknya menjadi cemuhan terbuka di mana-mana saja berhubung dakwaan yang dikaitkan dengannya itu.

Bermula dengan tersebarnya video mengenai hubungan beliau dengan wanita berkenaan dan kemudian beberapa video lain yang menunjukkan mereka bercuti bersama serta aksi berpeluk dan berpegangan tangan di Bali, Dzulkifli kini hanya ada empat pilihan untuk pertimbangannya.

Pertama, beliau sebaiknya mengambil cuti sementara sehingga pihak polis selesai menyisatnya di bawah Seksyen 498 Kanun Keseksaan yang merujuk kepada kesalahan menggoda wanita yang sudah bersuami untuk tujuan mengadakan hubungan haram.

Hukuman bagi kesalahan berkenaan akan berdepan hukuman penjara dua tahun, denda atau kedua-duanya sekali.

Photo published for FIRST TIME IN MACC HISTORY, THE CHIEF CAUGHT WITH HIS PANTS DOWN: WHAT CAN DZULKIFLI DO TO SAVE...

Berdasarkan video yang tersebar itu, Dzulkifli dipercayai bercuti bersama dengan pasangannya di Bali pada Julai lalu, sementara wanita berkenaan baru berpisah dengan suaminya pada hujung September.

Maklumat di media sosial juga menghebahkan wanita berkenaan adalah rakan setugas Dzulkifli ketika di Jabatan Peguam Negara dahulu, tetapi kini dikatakan sudah berpindah kerja di sebuah syarikat minyak sebagai Pengurus Undang-undang.

Maka, sementara siasatan terhadapnya dijalankan, Dzulkifli harus mengambil cuti bagi membolehkan siasatan menyeluruh dijalankan serta demi menjaga wibawa dan nama baik SPRM yang sedang diterajuinya. Baca selanjutnya...

‘Mama’ mati selepas jumpa kawan lama...

Saat yang menakjubkan apabila seekor chimpanzi yang sedang nazak bertukar ceria apabila didatangi sahabat lamanya.

Mama, 59, bekas ketua puak chimpanzi di Zoo Royal Burgers, Belanda kelihatan tidak bermaya dan menolak untuk makan sehingga tibanya Profesor Jan van Hoof yang dikenalinya sejak 1972.

Dalam video berkenaan, haiwan itu dilihat tidak mahu menjamah sebarang makanan dan hanya terbaring lemah di dalam sangkar.

Chimpanzi yang sedang nazak itu kelihatan memberi reaksi gembira apabila menyedari siapa yang datang melawatnya.

Suaranya kedengaran riang dan tersenyum ceria. Malah, Mama dilihat menghulurkan tangannya dan menggosok kepala profesor itu.

Pada awalnya, Mama tidak menyedari siapa yang datang. Dia juga tidak mahu berganjak dan tidak memberikan sebarang respon.

Namun, hubungan Mama dengan profesor yang bertanggungjawab menemuinya di Zoo Anherm suatu ketika dahulu ternyata mampu memberi kegembiraan buatnya.

Video dirakam pada April tahun lalu. Haiwan itu mati seminggu selepas pertemuan itu.

Dilema Zahid Hamidi...

Here is some interesting news. MO1 has no intention of Zahid Hamidi succeeding him as the party president or as the PM. Come the next UMNO assembly they are going to engineer Zahid out of the picture.

If MO1 wins the general elections (which will be held before the UMNO elections) it is said that Zahid Hamidi will be completely left out in the post elections Cabinet reshuffle.

MO1 is afraid to move against Zahid now because it may cause upheavals and loss of some UMNO votes.  

The only possibility of MO1 removing Zahid Hamidi BEFORE the elections is if MO1 also steps down.  In either scenario Zahid Hamidi is out of the picture.  Zahid Hamidi's political career is coming to an end soon. So the situation for Zahid and his henchmen is 'Its now or never'.

Zahid and his henchmen have to make a move now or they will forever lose their chance of seeing Zahid Hamidi replacing MO1.

Zahid Hamidi the pendatang tanpa izin from Jawa never dreamed of becoming a Minister. But this is Malaysia. Malaysia Boleh.  He never dreamed of becoming Prime Minister either.

But the PM's Office is now just one heart beat away.  Sadly Zahid was never "inner circle".  Not a blue blood or bangsawan. The son of Javanese pendatang haram.  There is no way the 'inner circle' is going to allow him to the PM's position.

What can Zahid do ?  Minta kuih lah brader. Say 200 million kuih talam?  Settle saja. - ostb

MACC chief: I will not bow down to ‘despicable’ allegations...

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Dzukifli Ahmad has said he will not give in to pressure from personal attacks and will continue his duties without fear or favour.

Describing the recent attacks against him as dirty and despicable, Dzulkifli said the allegations were aimed at tarnishing his reputation and discrediting the MACC’s efforts in combating corruption.

“We will not bow down to pressure and we will continue to carry out our duties and responsibilities to ensure that the country is rid of those who are involved in corruption and power abuse,” he told TV3 during an interview

“I’m confident that these attacks were made following the MACC’s ‘aggressive’ actions against those involved in corruption and power abuse.” Dzulkifli said he had contacted Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohamad Fuzi Harun over the matter and the police would take further action.

Our leaders today are a bunch of arrogant nitwit who does not have the slightest shame nor do they behave like human beings.

Today Malaysia is run by heartless leaders who think they can do wrong anytime any day.

People in high position should show some dignity to the post they hold. Instead these bastards misused their post to do wrong.

Like most Malaysians I am very, very angry that Dzulifli has not shown the slightest remorse to his misbehavior.  

Dzulifli should have apologize to his family, his mistress's family and the public.  Instead of shifting the blame that certain people are out to discredit MACC effort in combating corruption.

No-one is out for MACC blood in fact we Malaysians are happy even though Ikan Bilis are being caught and the money, jewellery, houses etc confiscated are been used to cover Najib and Rosmah robbery.

MACC should carry on their good work instead Dzulifli should resign since he is the one who created the problem.  Surely Dzulifli is not the only one capable of catching ikan bilis.

There seem to be a norm that anyone who are with UMNO are untouchable after commiting a crime. 

People should not jump the gun that those behind the investigation of Dzulifli affair are the opposition or those from Sabah.

Instead one should consider the case that Najib and Rosmah have asked Dzulifli to close not so long ago.

A person who can command RM100 million a month without paying GST and Income Tax is a huge loss to one's pocket and I am not talking about his dignity and ego which went down the drain when the Agong rejected his extension to continue as the number 1 Protection Racket Chief. - flipflop

RUU355 masuk stor dulu,pasai kemaruk undi Cina...

No automatic alt text available.

Alasan Pas mahu menangguhkan pembentangan Rang Undang-undang Mahkamah Syariah (Bidang Kuasa Jenayah) (Pindaan) 2016 (RUU355) di Parlimen sehingga selepas PRU14 disifatkan tidak masuk akal.

Ahli Parlimen Kuala Langat, Datuk Abdullah Sani Abdul Hamid berkata, penangguhan tersebut hanya akan menimbulkan kekeliruan kepada semua pihak berkaitan pembentangan RUU tersebut.

“Mengapa nak tangguh dan main tarik tali lagi? Apabila sudah dibentangkan ia juga perlu diberi penerangan dan penyelesaian.

“Alasan digunakan Pas yang mahu bertanding di 100 kawasan untuk memastikan RUU355 diluluskan di Dewan Rakyat sama sekali tidak masuk akal.

Penangguhan pasai nak undi kaum Cina?...

“Kalau memang itu alasannya, saya mahu cadangkan Pas bertanding di 222 kawasan kerana lagi mudah bagi mereka laksanakan RUU355 nanti,” katanya kepada Sinar Harian. 

Sebelum ini, Ketua Dewan Ulamak Pas, Datuk Dr Mahfodz Mohamed membayangkan Pas berkemungkinan membawa RUU 355 ke Parlimen hanya selepas PRU14.

Ini kerana katanya, Pas perlu mengambil kira beberapa aspek dalam isu RUU355 memandangkan PRU14 semakin dekat.

Mengulas lanjut mengenainya Abdullah Sani berkata, pembentangan pindaan RUU355 sepatutnya disegerakan supaya penjelasan mengenainya dapat dilakukan.


No automatic alt text available.

“Sekurang-kurangnya jika pembentangan diadakan di Parlimen pada sesi Oktober ini, semua pihak akan lebih jelas mengenai pendirian dan kaedah-kaedah yang diambil untuk memartabatkan undang-undang patuh syariah ini,” katanya.

Sementara itu, Ahli Parlimen Shah Alam (Amanah), Khalid Samad pula menyalahkan Umno kononnya parti itu yang memberi arahan kepada Pas supaya menangguhkan pembentangan RUU itu.

“Kita kesian dengan Pas kerana terpaksa mengikut skrip ditetapkan oleh Umno. Walaupun telah bersusah payah bawa RUU355  ini ke Parlimen, tapi sekarang bila Umno kata jangan bawa, mereka terpaksa akur.

“Jika kita lihat sekarang, pembentangan RUU 355 setakat ini sudah tiga kali ditangguhkan. Pembentangan itu juga tidak dibuka untuk dibahaskan,” katanya.– Sinar Harian


malaysia airlines peter bellew
With Bellew going,no one answerable 
for MAS’ Boeing deals...

THE cabin crew union of Malaysia Airlines said it was concerned over the shock announcement of chief executive officer Peter Bellew’s departure as there would no longer be anyone to answer for controversial deals to buy new Boeing aircraft.

The National Union of Flight Attendants (Nufam) said Bellew had served his purpose by inking the purchase of new Boeing aircraft, a deal announced by Prime Minister Najib Razak during his visit to the White House in September.

“A new CEO coming into MAS will not have to answer for anything now. The mission to have Peter Bellew sign the memorandums of understanding is complete,”   the union said after news that Bellew would return to Irish budget airlines RyanAir in December.

Najib had announced that MAS would buy 25 Boeing 737 jets and eight 787 Dreamliners, and that orders would likely be made for another 25 737s over the next five years, in a deal worth more than US$10 billion (RM42 billion).

Nufam said it was worried that MAS would suffer heavier losses due to expensive maintenance of the new planes they purchased.

It said MAS would not be able to afford buying the new planes as it was just recovering from a series of heavy cutbacks. 

“There are also no signs of MAS making profits to show they could sustain all these high cost and maintenance of new planes. Its financial problems will rise up again in no time when the new planes arrive.”


Image result for boeing 787 Dreamliners.

Nufam also questioned why MAS was buying new planes within three years of axing 6,000 staff from the airline under a restructuring plan.

Bellew’s departure from MAS was first announced today by RyanAir, and appeared to have taken MAS by surprise. The national carrier called it an “unexpected” announcement.

Bellew first joined MAS in 2015 as chief operating officer, and became CEO in July 2016. He took over from outgoing CEO Christoph Mueller on July 1 last year after the latter quit MAS less than a year into his contract, citing personal reasons.

Bellew is the third MAS CEO in two years after Mueller and Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, who stepped down after the twin MAS tragedies of MH370 and MH17 in 2014

Nufam said it did not agree with foreign CEOs leading MAS.

“They are not answerable to the public . These foreign managers make fat salaries and leave in no time. Other airlines have proven that there is no need to hire a foreigner to run their airline and they still can expand and show results,” it added.

Aviation analyst at Maybank Investment Bank Mohsin Aziz meanwhile said it was hard to say whether the national airline could remain on track as per the MAS Recovery Plan.

“Information from MAS has been a tiny trickle, we don’t really know what’s what. We keep hearing of turnaround, we really are going around in circles,” he told The Malaysian Insight.

What nonsense and lies from Bellew. No honest and diligent managers can work for government linked companies in Malaysia over the long term and they very soon find out that they are merely there to lend credence to all the theft and corruption that the GLCs are involved in. MAS has been one of the worst and tens of billions of Ringgit have been siphoned off into the pockets of politicians and their cronies.- Sam04

Thank you Peter! I wish you every best in your new challenge. As a major critic of the board room and political (read race based) games, we both know what is inpending and it is best both you and Muller are now no more and as such, the super bourgeoisie and cronies will not have an opportunity to blame for the decisions about to take place! Will meet you for a bitter soon! Farewell my friend!- Falcon 

Properly being “asked” to approve the purchase of $100 per roll of toilet paper, $200 per bottle of hand soap, or 100 years prepaid catering contract. Bellew properly don’t want to be the fall guy if things go wrong.Welcome to Malaysia - Brian 

Kesian kat beribu-ribu kakitangan MAS yang telah rela dipecat kerana ingin melihat Bellew memulihkan MAS kemudian ditikam separuh jalan. Apa kah payung terjun emas beliau? - Anonymous_3e6e

Expressway Up For Grabs...

I was pretty excited when Tan Sri Abu Sahid Mohamed, the group executive chairman of Maju Holdings Sdn Bhd, offered to buy the North-South Expressway (PLUS Expressway). The owner of Maju Expressway (MEX) connecting Putrajaya/Cyberjaya to Kuala Lumpur made a whooping RM40 billion bid for all five highways belonging to PLUS Malaysia Berhad (PMB), the largest public-listed toll expressway operator in South East Asia and the eighth largest in the world. To make the offer more tempting, Sahid dangled a carrot – no toll hike for 20 years until the end of the concession period in 2038. He spoke to The Malaysian Insight, an online news portal on September 25. 

The five highways belonging to PMB are the North-South Expressway, Expressway Lingkaran Tengah (ELITE), Expressway Linkedua (LINKEDUA), Seremban-Port Dickson Highway (SPDH) and Lebuhraya Butterworth-Kulim (KLBK). The Penang Bridge highway belongs to PMB but, surprisingly, it is not part of the deal.  

Before we go berserk over the privateer’s offer, let us examine some bare facts about PLUS Expressway. This 772-km highway stretches from Bukit Kayu Hitam, at the Kedah-Thailand border, in the north to Johor Bahru in the south. The road links many major cities and towns in western Peninsular Malaysia and forms the “backbone” of the west coast of the peninsula.

The road network was built in stages beginning in 1981 and was completed in 1994. The northern route (Bukit Kayu Hitam-Kuala Lumpur) is 460km long while the southern route (Kuala Lumpur-Johor Bahru) is 312km. These two routes and the Klang Valley Expressway are the ones that affect Malaysian motorists most. Love or loathe it, as Malaysians, we use the PLUS Expressway, some frequently, some sparingly, and are well aware of its shortcomings.

I am most familiar with the Ipoh-Kuala Lumpur stretch and I believe many Ipohites are. On Saturday, October 7, my wife and I were on the road navigating our way to a wedding reception at Westin Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. The weather was bad. It rained cats and dogs almost all the way. You could barely see the road, especially along the Tapah-Tanjong Malim stretch. I wanted to turn back had it not been for my wife’s insistence, as she had spent a small fortune at the hair salon.

We came across two nasty accidents involving a sport utility vehicle and a sedan. Both cars came to grief in the ravine by the side of the highway. I wonder how the vehicles faced north when they were both heading south. Obviously, the drivers were speeding oblivious of the pouring rain and the poor visibility. Maintenance is below par and when a massive resurfacing works are in progress more than half of the road is closed to vehicles making travelling not only difficult but also hazardous.

During the interview Sahid made some startling revelations. He questioned the concessionaire’s calculation of operating expenditure (opex) which is fixed at 42 per cent. “Where is there a business with an opex of more than 40 per cent? They are mad,” said Sahid. PLUS Expressway is owned by UEM (United Engineering Malaysia) and EPF (Employees’ Provident Fund) which has 51 per cent and 49 per cent, respectively. UEM is wholly owned by Khazanah Nasional Berhad, thus the government has a golden share in PLUS. EPF gets RM400 million in dividends annually that works to RM27.50 sen per contributor (EPF has 14.5 million contributors). 

The tycoon questioned the operator’s reluctance to widen the highway to make travelling less stressful for users when they are getting more than enough money from motorists. During festive seasons it can take over 12 hours to travel from one end to the other. “There is a difference between resurfacing and patching-up roads,” said Sahid. He was referring to the poor patch works done on parts of the highway.

If his bid is successful Sahid promises to not only widen but light up the whole stretch of the expressway. Over the past five years UEM and EPF have got RM3.6 billion in dividends when their capital outlay was only RM3.4 billion. They got back their capital plus a RM200-million profit. Why the necessity to increase toll anymore? The agreement between the government and the concessionaire is lopsided. Toll needs to be revised every five years failing which the government has to compensate the operator. This is most unfair, as money collected from highway users is sufficient to maintain the facility. Perhaps there is no economies of scale judging from the 42 per cent annual operational expenditure. The reason could be poor financial management or too much spending on non-essentials.

But letting go a cash cow is the least on the minds of the owners. Stakeholders UEM and EPF have a commitment to their investors and will not accede easily. The ones to bear the brunt are the long-suffering rakyat who not only have to pay but to endure the many inconveniences and inconsistencies along the expressway. The end of the concession is 20 years away, some of us here may not last that long. And this is happening when prices of goods and services are spiraling out of control, value of the ringgit is plummeting, unemployment rate is escalating and workers are losing their jobs. Against this backdrop, an oppressive regime harbours hopes of clinging on to power for eternity.  

On the issue of religion, I am pleased that the Malay rulers have endorsed the decision by the Johor Sultan and Perlis Raja Muda to forbid Muslim-only launderettes in their respective states. The statement coming from the heads of Islam is like music to our ears. Sane and clear-thinking Malaysians should shun religious bigotry. They should never be intimidated by the vocal minority whose only agenda is the perpetuation of their narrow-minded idealism. This bountiful country belongs to everyone.- Fathol Zaman Bukhari

Pengguna f/bk Cina pro-pembangkang,Melayu pro-BN...

Image result for facebook users

Satu kajian terbaru mengenai pengguna Facebook menunjukkan dalam soal parti politik, rakyat Malaysia masih terpisah mengikut garis perkauman.

Menurut kajian Politweet yang diterbitkan minggu lepas, pengguna Facebook berbahasa Cina cenderung ke arah pembangkang dibandingkan dengan pengguna berbahasa Melayu yang lebih cenderung ke arah kerajaan pemerintah.

Majoriti (60.16%) daripada 6.4 juta pengguna Facebook berusia di atas 21 tahun adalah individu yang menggunakan dua bahasa, Melayu dan Inggeris.

Ini diikuti oleh pengguna berbahasa Melayu sahaja (14.84%), pengguna Cina-Inggeris (11.72%), dan pengguna Melayu-Cina serta pengguna berbahasa Inggeris sahaja yang berjumlah 3.91% setiap satu.

Manakala selebihnya adalah mereka yang menggunakan tiga bahasa (2.34%) dan pengguna berbahasa Cina sahaja (kurang daripada 2%).

Kajian juga mendapati tiga kumpulan iaitu pengguna berbahasa Melayu-Inggeris, Cina-Inggeris dan Melayu sahaja adalah kumpulan utama pengguna Facebook yang membentuk 86.72%.

Sekurang-kurangnya satu pertiga pengguna ketiga-tiga kumpulan ini mempunyai minat kepada kedua-dua pihak politik di negara ini.

Barisan Nasional (BN) bagaimanapun mempunyai capaian lebih tinggi dalam kalangan Melayu-Inggeris, Melayu sahaja dan Inggeris sahaja di Facebook berbanding pembangkang. Dalam kajian ini, PAS dimasukkan ke dalam kategori pembangkang.

Pembangkang pula mendahului BN dalam kalangan pengguna Cina-Inggeris, Melayu-Cina dan pengguna tiga bahasa dalam media sosial itu, menurut kajian itu lagi.

“Ada pemisah jelas minat politik berdasarkan bahasa antara pengguna Melayu (terutamanya kumpulan Melayu-Inggeris dan Melayu sahaja) dan pengguna berbahasa Cina ( terutamanya kumpulan Cina-Inggeris),” kata laporan itu lagi.

Didapati juga yang BN lebih berpengaruh dalam kalangan pengguna berbahasa Melayu (dengan purata 2.49% setiap negeri) yang bermaksud wujud kelompok pengguna berbahasa Melayu yang hanya sedar dan bercakap tentang isu berkaitan BN.

Begitu juga, pembangkang lebih berpengaruh dalam kalangan pengguna berbahasa Cina (dengan purata 12.88% setiap negeri).

Menurut Politweet, negeri yang mempunyai peratusan tertinggi orang Melayu dan Bumiputera adalah Terengganu (97%0, Kelantan (96%), Perlis (86%) dan Sabah (81%) adalah juga negeri yang paling ramai jumlah pengguna berbahasa Melayu di Facebook.

“Negeri yang mempunyai peratusan tinggi rakyat kaum Cina adalah Pulau Pinang (44%), Johor (34%) KL dan Selangor (32%), Perak (30%) dan Melaka (26%). Selain KL dan Selangor, negeri-negeri ini mempunyai peratusan tinggi pengguna berbahasa Cina dan Inggeris.

“Walaupun wujud persamaan, perlu ditekankan yang bukan semua pengguna berbahasa Melayu di Facebook beretnik Melayu, Bumiputera Sarawak atau Bumiputera Sabah; dan bukan semua pengguna berbahasa Cina beretnik Cina.

“Bagaimanapun boleh dikatakan hampir semua orang Melayu di Semenanjung Malaysia boleh ditemui dalam kumpulan Melayu-Inggeris atau Melayu sahaja,” kata Politweet.

We would rather spoil votes 
than vote UMNO or PAS...

A survey by Chinese daily Oriental Daily indicated that an overwhelming number of respondents would spoil their votes if they were given a choice of voting for only Umno or PAS.

Of the 14,602 people polled, 70.97 percent said they would spoil their votes if they could only choose between the two, while 15.74 percent said they would back Umno and 13.29 percent said they would back PAS.

Most respondents (79.55 percent) said “good governance” was their main consideration when voting, followed by the economy and equality.

An overwhelming 84.15 percent of respondents said they hoped that there will be a new federal government after the next general election.

Only 6.47 percent hoped for status quo while only 4.09 percent hoped that BN will regain the two-thirds majority.

Meanwhile, an overwhelming majority of respondents polled “none of the above” when asked to choose one of four Umno leaders who should lead the country.

Meanwhile more than 63% of readers of a Chinese daily do not want any of the most senior Umno leaders in the Najib administration to lead the country, even as the ruling coalition prepares for the next general election.

Offered a choice of Prime Minister Najib Razak and Cabinet ministers Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Khairy Jamaluddin and Hishammuddin Hussein as “the best Barisan Nasional leader to lead the country, 63.61%  of respondents picked “None of the above”, in Oriental Daily’s poll of 15,000 readers. Most unpopular choice as PM is ZAHID..

On the other end of the political spectrum, jailed Pakatan Harapan leader Anwar Ibrahim garnered the most votes for the best prime minister candidate among opposition leaders.

Almost all of the poll’s respondents hope for a change of government in the 14th general election which is expected to be called before August 2018.

BN and PH are the two main political coalitions vying for federal power in GE14. Islamist party PAS is leading a pact of smaller parties called Gagasan Sejahtera Rakyat but they were not featured in the survey.

The poll was published in today’s edition of the Oriental Daily and featured three questions of best BN candidate for PM, best PH candidate for PM, and hoped-for results in GE14.

Hishammuddin, who is defence minister, garnered the most votes at 19.69% for best BN candidate for PM.

Youth and sports minister Khairy is the second most popular choice at 12.15%, followed by prime minister Najib at 3.8%. Less than 1% voted for his deputy, Zahid, who scored 0.74%.

About 63.6% of readers chose “None of the above”.

Bersatu chairman Dr Mahathir Mohamad received 8.75% of votes, PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail (6.26%) and Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin (1.5%). Only 14.36% ticked “None of the above”.

Many of the respondents also singled out PKR vice-presidents Rafizi Ramli and Nurul Izzah Anwar, who were not among the names listed in the poll, to be their choice of leader of Malaysia. 

A 84.15% majority of readers hope for a change of government in the next general election, 6.47% are happy with the status quo, and 4.09% are rooting for BN to win with a two-thirds majority. A little over 5% have no opinion. - mk



HRH Sultan Selangor has also revoked that JAKIM preacher from preaching inside Selangor...

1. Sultan of Selangor instructed (Mais) to revoke credentials of Zamihan Mat Zin.

2. Sultan consulted council before issuing instructions to Mais.

3. Mais instructed to remove Zamihan from Selangor Tauliah Committee.

4. Sultan instructed lectures at mosques, surau recorded for monitoring 

5. Sultan instructed volume of loudspeakers during lectures lowered
except for call of Azan and recitation of Quran verses

6. Malay rulers of opinion image of Islam be tolerant, moderate, inclusive and not polluted by extreme actions

This action follows lecture by Zamihan racist,ill mannered,and excessively critical of royalties. Sultan reminded to respect main principles in Federal Constitution for harmony. 

This comes after the statements by HRH Sultan Johore which has exposed what many people did not understand or realise : that JAKIM has no authority or enforcement power.

Sultan Ibrahim asked (JAINJ) to no longer have dealings with (Jakim). He said Jakim does not need to issue their views to Johor religious matters fall under the purview of the state. 

I will instruct JAINJ to no longer waste time dealing with Jakim,” he said.

This has really caused JAKIM to panic.Because there is BIG MONEY INVOLVED. 

Jakim DG and Jamil Khir Baharom seeking audience with Johor Ruler audience sought as soon as possible 

Last Saturday Sultan direct (JAIJ) to stop dealing with Jakim.

Here is how the money can be 'sucked' out. 

UMNO is now in a sumbang mahram situation with PAS.  UMNO needs the PAS support as well. Since 'cash is king' they need to channel funds to the PAS retards at the grassroots. They need a channel of distribution.

Religious programs are perfect - they will also require food catering for kursus agama, printing booklets, banners, sewa khemah, booking travel and hotel rooms. Plenty money can be distributed this way.   

Johore has the largest Muslim Malay population in Malaysia. Parti Pribumi Bersatu is also gaining in popularity in Johor.   

The Sultan's statement basically bans JAKIM from "operating" in Johor. This could seriously dent JAKIM's plans for that RM1 Billion that MO1 has given them. That is why Jamil Khir is trying to meet the Sultan. Much money is at stake.

More importantly the Sultan's statements expose the fact that JAKIM has absolutely no authority. JAKIM is part of the PM's Department. They have no enforcement power.  

In Malaysia, agama is a State matter exclusively under the purview of the Sultans. There is absolutely no such thing as a "Federal religous authority".  Even in the Wilayah Persekutuan of KL, Labuan and Putrajaya the authority in charge is JAWI.

When the Sultan of Johor tells the Jabatan Agama Islman Negeri Johor or JAINJ not to have any more dealings with JAKIM it is the end of the story. There is nothing that JAKIM can do.

And since MO1 needs to distribute money to his retard friends in PAS, it becomes painfully obvious that even his cash is not king  anymore. 

If your retards  are shut out of Johore, how are they going to distribute the money? You are going to lose mucho votes. You are going to lose Johor.

The fact that JAKIM and Jamil Khir are trying to meet the Sultan of Johore is evidence enough that the retard is indeed employed by them. 

I would like to humbly request HRH the Sultan of Johor to hold firm with his decision not to allow JAKIM into Johor.  What are JAKIM or Jamil Khir going to explain?

Similarly the decision by the Sultan of Selangor to ban the JAKIM retard from preaching inside Selangor also proves that the Sultan of Selangor can also ban JAKIM from operating inside Selangor.

JAKIM has no authority at all.

I am so glad that the Sultans of Johore and Selangor are standing up for the good things (amar ma'ruf) and speaking up against the bad things (nahi munkar). The people are really thankful that two of our Sultans are speaking up. Daulat Tuanku.

This will be a major shock not only for JAKIM but also for the Chief Thief. Malam ini Geng Pencuri semua risau.- ostb
