BERITA PALSU MENJELANG PRU 13 KIAN MENJADI-JADI

Posted: 24 Dec 2012 09:29 PM PST

KUALA LUMPUR, 25 Dis — Bekas pemimpin tertinggi Polis Di Raja Malaysia (PDRM) Datuk Fauzi Shaari menafikan pernah mengeluarkan kenyataan beliau menyesal menyertai parti komponen Pakatan Rakyat (PR) PAS.

"Kenapa saya perlu menyesal bersama PAS. Saya sudah buat pilihan yang tepat.

"Kenapa masih ada yang pertikai dan ragu-ragu dengan tindakan saya ini.

"Saya rasa tindakan saya menyertai PAS membuatkan ada beberapa pihak tidak senang hati. Sebab itu mereka sengaja mencipta isu ini," kata bekas pengarah Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah (JSJ) itu dipetik dari Sinar Harian Online.

Sebelum ini tersebar mesej melalui khidmat pesanan ringkas (SMS), mendakwa Fauzi menyatakan penyesalannya menyertai PAS.

Mesej itu berbunyi: "Kalau saya tahu begini keadaan PAS taubat saya tidak akan menyertainya.

"Masuk PAS umpama masuk parti DAP. Belum apa-apa saya disuruh bersumpah baiah cerai isteri talak tiga jika saya tinggalkan PAS."

Fauzi menafikan SMS tersebar itu yang menurutnya dilakukan oleh pihak-pihak yang tidak gembira dengan tindakannya menyertai parti pembangkang.

"Saya amat gembira dan bersyukur atas apa yang saya hadapi dan nikmati sejak bersama PAS," katanya.

Selepas pilihan raya 2008, PAS dilihat giat membawa masuk bekas pegawai tertinggi kerajaan menyertai mereka.

Sebelum ini, bekas Ketua Setiausaha Kementerian Tanah, Datuk Dr Nik Zain Nik Yusof menyertai parti Islam itu.

Ahmad Zabidi Shamsuddin, bekas Ketua Jemaah Nazir Kementerian Pelajaran Malaysia juga berbuat perkara sama.

Terbaru semasa Muktamar PAS ke 58 di Kota Bharu baru-baru ini, bekas pengarah Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor (Jais) Datuk Mohd Nahwari Hashim mengisytiharkan secara terbuka menyertai parti tersebut.

"Saya dah lama nak menyertai PAS... dan hari ini secara rasmi saya menyertainya," katanya yang pernah juga menjawat jawatan pengarah Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor (Jais).

Let Us Advance Efforts To Establish A People-Centric Government Based On Integrity That Puts People Over Profits To Put A Stop To All Future Lynas Rare Earth Plant, Automated Enforcement System(AES) And The RM 871 Billion Dirty Money Scandals. (BI/BC)

Posted: 23 Dec 2012 11:38 PM PST

DAP 2012 Christmas Day Message By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 24.12.2012

Let Us Advance Efforts To Establish A People-Centric Government Based On Integrity That Puts People Over Profits To Put A Stop To All Future Lynas Rare Earth Plant, Automated Enforcement System(AES) And The RM 871 Billion Dirty Money Scandals.

Christmas celebrates the blessings of peace, prosperity, forgiveness and salvation. Similarly, a people-centric government can also bring peace and prosperity based on the principles of truth, freedom, justice, democracy and integrity.

For this reason, DAP urges the BN Federal government to allow the use of the word Allah on the Bahasa Malaysia version of the Bible as has been allowed in Sabah and Sarawak for the last 50 years and practiced in the Middle East for more than a thousand years. Further, BN should stop using the fear tactics of a Christian state to frighten Malay voters to support BN when Christians have never sought a Christian state but instead pledged loyalty to the Federal Constitution that Islam is the religion of Malaysia.

Although principles and idealism has been dismissed by some irresponsible quarters as incompatible with running a government, a people-centric government can be both principled but practical, idealistic and yet realistic. For example, implementing open competitive tenders is not only idealistic but now a realistic component that contributed towards some of Penang's achievements.

This lack of faithfulness to principles has shown how impractical it is to the public as highlighted by three recent major issues of public interest, namely the threat of Lynas rare earth plant on the health and safety of the rakyat, the privatisation of enforcement by allowing private companies to profit from the traffic summons issued and the RM 871 billion illicit outflow of dirty money scandal over the last 10 years.

A people-centric government would never allow these projects that put profits over people. Further these projects would never pass the integrity test, as accountability and transparency would quickly expose the lies, injustice and cronies who benefit most at the expense of public interest.

Let us advance efforts to establish a people-centric government based on integrity that gives preference to people over profits to put a stop to any future Lynas rare earth plant, Automated Enforcement System(AES) and RM 871 billion illicit outflow of dirty money scandals

Merry Christmas!

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼国会议员林冠英于2012年12月24日在吉隆坡发表的圣诞节献词。

让我们一起作为先行者,成立一个将人民权益大于自身利益,立基廉洁的以民为本政府,好让在未来能终止莱纳斯稀土厂、自动执法系统及8千710亿令吉的黑钱外流丑闻。

圣诞节是欢庆和平、昌盛、救赎的节日。同样的,以民为本的政府也可以凭着捍卫真理、自由、正义、民主及廉洁的原则,带来和平及昌盛。

因此,行动党呼吁国阵联邦政府允许马来文版圣经可以使用阿拉字眼,因为这在沙巴及砂拉越已经沿用了50年,在中东地区也已经沿用了千年。同时,国阵也必须停止使用成立基督教国的恐吓手段恐吓马来选民来支持国阵,因为基督徒不曾要成立基督国,反而尊崇联邦宪法所列名伊斯兰教是马来西亚国教。

虽然秉持原则与理想主义早已经被一些不负责任又不胜任的政府弃而不顾,反过来,以民为本的政府,却能同时能兼具原则与实践,理想与务实。举个例子,实施公开招标不只是理想的政策,事实上也已经成为槟城其中一项成就。

对公众来说,缺乏原则是最不切实际的,尤其是近期三项涉及公众利益的事件,其一是影响人民健康及安全的莱纳斯稀土厂,其二是私营化交通罚单典当执法权,让私人公司借此牟利,最后就是过去10年共有8千710亿令吉黑钱外流的丑闻。

以民为本的政府绝不允许这些计划向人民榨取利益。更甚的是,这些计划根本经不起廉洁的检验,在诚信与透明的诉求下,这些谎言、不公义及朋党透过榨取公众利益牟利恶行,很快就会被揭穿。

让我们一起作为先行者,成立一个将人民权益大于自身利益,立基廉洁的以民为本政府,好让在未来能终止莱纳斯稀土厂、自动执法系统及8千710亿令吉的黑钱外流丑闻。

祝愿各位,圣诞快乐!

受封拿督课题不应分裂行动党领导层; 卡巴星应把这课题带进中委会讨论

Posted: 24 Dec 2012 04:03 AM PST

参考卡巴星同志对媒体发表关于他对我和邓章钦同志被苏丹受封为拿督的意见后,我相信荣誉是在于我们如何活出生命的价值而获得的。

当我还是霹雳州高级行政议员时,我从没要求任何头衔或被册封。无论如何,霹雳州苏丹自行决定册封我拿督头衔,这是苏丹的权利,他有自由来裁定我被受封。

这课题在我还没正式受封前曾被带进行动党中委会进行讨论。卡巴星同志持反对意见但多数中委会成员赞成我接受苏丹赐封,因为这课题不应使党在霹雳州处理更重要和紧急课题的努力被转移。

我希望卡巴星同志可以接受中委会多数的意见和展望未来。这课题不应导致行动党领导层造成分裂。如果卡巴星同志对这课题有强烈的意见,他应把这课题带进中委会进行讨论。

Conferment of titles should not divide the DAP leadership. Sdr Karpal Singh should bring this issue before the Central Executive Committee

Posted: 24 Dec 2012 04:00 AM PST

MEDIA STATEMENT:

I refer to the view expressed by Sdr Karpal Singh to the media with regard to the Datukship titles conferred on Sdr Teng Chang Khim and me.

I believe honour is gained by the way we live our lives.

I would like to state that when I was the Senior Exco member of the Perak State Government, I had never sought to be conferred with any honour or title. However, His Royal Highness the Sultan of Perak on his own accord conferred on me the Datukship title. This is his right and discretion to exercise.

The matter was brought up for discussion before the Central Executive Committee (CEC) of the DAP before I accepted the award. Sdr Karpal Singh was against it but the majority of the CEC was of the view that I should accept the award and that this issue should not be allowed to distract the party from the more important and urgent task of governing the State of Perak well.

I hope Sdr Karpal Singh will accept the majority decision of the CEC and move on. This issue should not cause any division to the party leadership. If Sdr Karpal Singh feels strongly about his view,  he should bring it before the CEC for a review.

Dated this 24th day December 2012.

Unless, the DCA and the Administration was in on it. It was all a scam by all the parties related to this, to give the long haul division to AA, its own AOC and a whole bag of cash to boot.

AirAsia’s AOC valid for only 6 months due to non-compliance with safety regulations.That speaks volumes. Actions should have been taken during the RAS day. But DCA didn’t may be it was during the Sleepy Head times. That was the time when the 4th Floor was running high. Whatever the 4th Floor wanted they will get it. Nevertheless the government should take actions against the officer because safety was an issue here. DCA is the authority on aviation safety. This was a case of Harapkan pagar, pagar makan padi! Now Everyone Can Fly and Die.

The facts of the case clearly showed that FAX aka AirAsia X never had the intention to operate the RAS from the word go. It was just a scheme to get what they wanted.

How could air services be sub-contracted why the sub-contractor, FAX had no experience. How could DCA grant the AOC under such circumstances? Why AOC was not withdrawn when it was discovered that so many aircraft were cannibalized for spare parts and no replacement. If one or two parts were cannibalized for emergency whilst they were on order then we can understand. In the case of FAX there was no intention to replace.

Action should be taken against the DCA officer that who approved the AOC for FAX and thereafter approved it to be used for AirAsia X.

Now Everyone Can Take The Sleepy Head For A Ride!

Never knew that a company like FAX/AirAsia X which was not an air operator was given an AOC just like that. Bloody scam. DCA officer must be brought to book for its failure to act when those aircraft were cannibalized.

Comment on DCA failed to withdraw the AOC of FAX / AirAsia X in 2007 (Part 1) by Anonymous

Posted: 23 Dec 2012 10:27 AM PST

@Hisham,

It is quite common practise with all airlines to take serviceable parts from one aircraft or major assembly and fit it to another in order to keep it flying. This process is call cannibalization and is quite safe for so log as there are sufficient processes to track the act and the safety of the aircraft is not impacted. If the cannibalized aircraft were required for service, then this act is temporary in nature and the cannibalized part replaced. Sometimes this is done in AOG situation until the ordered part arrive.

In fact if this is done even more for fleets that are due to be retired/replaced. It is also done when the number of aircraft exceeds the requirements.

The issue here is that the F50 was neither being replaced nor retired nor was the number of aircraft even meeting the capacity requirement. Hence the situation where FAX have had to cancel services due to lack of aircraft.

FAX had never intended to invest in a new fleet like MASWings.

They stopped replacing the cannibalized parts when they had decided on exiting the services.

I think it would be safe to conclude the following:
- The maintenance standards of FAX leaves much to be desired.
- It was never their intention to honestly operate RAS, they used RAS as a means of getting a quick AOC for the eventual Air Asia X (and a quick buck).
- They have no ethics or scruples cos they took the money, not return any amount unserved and never made right in returning the aircraft to an airworthy condition.

Another wheeling and dealing by TF within full view of sleepy head.

Kelab Malam Di Setia Alam Beroperasi Guna Lesen Kafeteria

Posted: 23 Dec 2012 09:05 PM PST

Oleh IWAN SHU-ASWAD SHUAIB (mStar Online)

SHAH ALAM: Kelab malam yang dibuka di Setia Alam di sini sehingga menimbulkan kontroversi sebenarnya beroperasi secara haram menggunakan lesen kafeteria.

Ahli Parlimen Shah Alam, Khalid Abdul Samad berkata, berdasarkan mesyuarat dengan bahagian perlesenan dan penguatkuasaan Majlis Bandaraya Shah Alam (MBSA) pada Khamis, pihaknya mendapati kelab malam berkenaan menyalahgunakan lesen bagi tujuan itu.

Selain itu jelasnya, premis berkenaan turut didapati menjual arak tetapi tidak memohon lesen bagi penjualan minuman keras itu.

"Saya diberitahu oleh MBSA, mereka telah mengeluarkan saman dan mengarahkan pemilik premis menghentikan sebarang aktiviti hiburan dan pertunjukan (floor show) dan diarahkan beroperasi sebagai kafeteria.

"Berikutan itu saya telah meminta MBSA supaya mengarahkan agar premis berkenaan menghentikan operasi mereka (kelab malam) dengan serta-merta," katanya pada sidang media di pejabat beliau di sini, Jumaat.

Beliau mengulas laporan muka hadapan sebuah akhbar baru-baru ini yang mendedahkan sebuah kelab malam telah beroperasi di Shah Alam yang secara tidak langsung menggambarkan kerajaan Pakatan Rakyat di Selangor mudah memberi lesen bagi aktiviti yang dilarang.

Khalid yang juga Timbalan Pesuruhjaya II PAS berkata, ia bukannya kelab malam pertama yang dibenarkan di Shah Alam sebaliknya sebuah pusat hiburan yang beroperasi secara haram sejak 12 Disember lalu.

Jelasnya, MBSA masih belum bertindak untuk menghentikan operasi premis itu kerana bimbang terdapat komplikasi daripada segi undang-undang.

"Saya lihat isu ini sebagai bahan politik. Saya minta MBSA memahami bahawa ia bukan sekadar undang-undang tetapi ada implikasi politik.

"MBSA sepatutnya bertindak tegas supaya tidak jadi bahan fitnah oleh pihak tertentu," katanya.

Dalam pada itu, beliau turut meminta Datuk Bandar Shah Alam, Datuk Mohd Jaafar Mohd Atan memperjelaskan kenapa kelab malam itu masih beroperasi dan bukannya mengarahkan premis itu ditutup dan disita serta merampas peralatan serta minuman keras mereka.

"Datuk Bandar perlu menzahirkan secara profesional tanpa mencampurkan kepentingan politik," katanya.

Ditanya sama ada Khalid akan mengambil tindakan sekiranya tiada tindakan tegas serta merta, beliau berkata, peluang akan diberikan seluas-luasnya kepada Datuk Bandar dan MBSA tanpa campur tangan pihaknya..

"Saya tidak akan ambil apa-apa tindakan cuma mendesak supaya kelab malam itu dihentikan serta-merta," katanya.

Khalid bagaimanapun mengakui bahawa Setia Alam di sini merupakan kawasan perbandaran yang berbeza dengan Shah Alam di mana hampir 70 peratus penduduknya adalah bukan beragama Islam.

"Kalau mereka ingin membuka satu tempat hiburan, maka sepatutnya MBSA mendapatkan maklum balas awam untuk mendengar pandangan penduduk sama ada operasi kelab malam dibolehkan ataupun tidak," katanya.

Christmas Greeting

Posted: 24 Dec 2012 03:31 AM PST

Merry Christmas to all Christians in Malaysia!

May this festive season bring peace, joy and hope to all Malaysians.

As Christmas is the time to gather with family and with the people we love and cherish, let us give thanks to what we have and remember the less fortunate and those in need of shelter and the simple things we take for granted.

The Christian community is a vital part of our multi-cultural and multi-religious society. The relationship between the state and the Christian community should be warm and built on trust, and the fundamental liberties of all Christians as guaranteed by the constitution must be protected and upheld. This is essential for Malaysia to move forward as a nation united for peace and prosperity. A nation divided cannot achieve greatness.

So, on this auspicious occasion, may I reiterate that the happiness, security and prosperity of all Malaysians must remain the cornerstone of our nation's strength and resilience to face the challenges ahead. Let us remain united under the banner of peace, freedom, reform and justice for all.

Let us be committed to a Malaysia of equal partnership and a common goal. My colleagues in Pakatan Rakyat and I have worked hard over the years to reaffirm our commitment to a Malaysia for all Malaysians. In that spirit we would like to wish again a Merry Christmas to all our Christian brothers and sisters across the country.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hari Natal adalah masa untuk bersama keluarga dan masa bersama dengan orang yang tersayang. Marilah kita bersyukur dengan kenikmatan yang kita ada dan tidak dilupakan juga kepada yang kurang bernasib baik.

Masyarakat Kristian memainkan peranan penting dalam masyarakat berbilang bangsa dan berbilang agama dalam negara kita. Hubungan antara masyarakat Kristian dan kerajaan seharusnya dibina atas kepercayaan dan semangat kerjasama, dan kebebasan fundamental mereka seperti yang termaktub dalam Perlembagaan wajib dihormati dan dilindungi. Ini adalah perkara yang sangat esential untuk Malaysia bergerak maju bersatu demi keharmonian dan kesejahteraan. Negara tidak tampak hebat dengan masyarakat yang tidak bersatu.

Sempena dengan kehadiran musim perayaan ini, saya ingin ulangi bahawa kegembiraan, kestabilan dan kesejahteraan seluruh rakyat Malaysia harus menjadi batu pengukur kepada kekuatan negara bangsa ini dan kemampuan untuk mengharungi cabaran di hadapan. Marilah kita bersatu di bawah panji keamanan, kebebasan, reformasi dan keadilan untuk semua.

Saya bersama teman-teman dalam Pakatan Rakyat bekerja keras bertahun-tahun untuk memastikan komitmen kami bahawa Malaysia ini adalah milik seluruh rakyat Malaysia. Dalam semangat itu, kami ingin sekali lagi mengucapkan Selamat Hari Natal kepada seluruh masyarakat Kristian di Malaysia.

OMINOUS SILENCE From Dr M to Najib’s Plan for MACC to Vet Election Candidates

Posted: 23 Dec 2012 09:00 AM PST

Malaysian Chronicle

Raised eyebrows, annoyance, snorts and sniggers. Those were among the most common responses to a plan by Umno President and Barisan Nasional chairman Najib Razak to seek the help of the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission to vet the ruling coalition's candidates for the forthcoming 13th General Election.

To make it worse, there has been nothing but an ominous silence to this proposal from the most powerful man in Umno today, Najib’s former boss and ex-premier Mahathir Mohamad, and with good reasons too.

Mahathir’s son, Mukhriz, is unlikely to make the grade given the father's reported US$ 44 billion in assets and the flight of US$ 200 billion in dirty money last year. In fact, few if any of the top leaders in Umno would be able to make the grade, with the entire plan already ridiculed by the public and tagged as an eye-wash to curry favor in a most childish way with voters.

Trying to scare the Devil or negotiating better exit terms

What is Najib trying to do? As far as the general perception goes, Najib along with Mahathir should to be among the first to be axed given the former’s humongous Scorpene corruption and Altantuya Shaariibuu murder scandals. Can the 59-year-old Najib really be so fatuous as to believe that by roping in the MACC, whose own integrity is in doubt, it will make things right with voters?

Come on, voters are already sick and tired of the Umno-BN’s never-ending story of bribery and plundering of the national coffers. So what is Najib after? Is he trying to warn Mahathir and his own deputy, the also corruption-tainted Muhyiddin Yassin, to back off? Red-hot on the Umno grapevine is talk that Mahathir and Muhyiddin have struck a deal to push out Najib before GE13. Is Najib trying to signal that he won’t be giving up so easily and if he has to, he will fight back?

Those who are watching the developments in Umno will know soon enough. However, given the strength of Mahathir’s sinister character and Najib’s weak indecisivness, few believe Najib can do much to scare Mahathir. That would be like a kitten trying to take on a wolf.

At the most, it might buy the PM and his wife Rosmah Mansor a few more months in power, allowing them to make a more advantageous and graceful exit. Instead of relinquishing the premiership before GE13 as Mahathir and Muhyiddin are said to have demanded, Najib might get to lead Umno-BN into GE13 before stepping down as Umno president at the party’s internal election due to be held later in 2013.

Mahathir conducted a purge of Umno, BN candidates

Mahathir is not an easy man to cross and few have survived doing so. His most successful opponent remains his chief thorn in the flesh – Anwar Ibrahim. Not Najib. For now until GE13, Mahathir may continue to say good things about Najib but this can change anytime. Author Barry Wain did not call Mahathir a maverick for nothing. Mahathir is indeed the power behind the throne and all eyes are now on the 87-year-old as he twists and turns to keep his grip on Umno and protect his family and their enormous wealth.

Upon assuming power in 1981, Mahathir decided, unilaterally, that his Bersih, Cekap dan Amanah (Clean, Efficient and Trustworthy) administration would not field undeserving candidates. Mahathir was judge, jury, and hangman in this case. No MACC or ACA for him! The candidates knew it had nothing to do with their being ‘undeserving’ but that this was his way of purging BN of candidates put up by his predecessors and bringing in his own faction members.

Many Umno and BN members who held party posts were not fielded as candidates in the General Election (GE) simply because they weren't with him or he simply didn't like their faces. To add insult to injury, they weren't compensated with other government posts either because his aim was to finish them off politically and bury them for good. Yet, his losing candidates in party elections were not only fielded as GE candidates but were rewarded with other government positions when they lost at the party and GE levels.

Ruthless, mean, vicious, vindictive – these are all words used to describe Mahathir, and another strongman politician in Malaysia – Taib Mahmud of Sarawak.

Najib is no better than this duo. He and Rosmah are just as controversial and unpopular. But for his own self-preservation, Najib should know why he must get Mahathir and Company out of the 13th GE.

Mahathir's regime was anything but clean, efficient and trustworthy as evident in, among others, Barry Wain's book, "Malaysian Maverick – Mahathir Mohamad in Turbulent Times." According Wain’s research, during Mahathir’s administration US$ 100billion was lost from the Malaysian treasury.

Mahathir stabbed Hussein Onn in the back and betrayed Razak

If Malaysia’s third prime minister Hussein Onn, who was also Najib's uncle, had not selected Mahathir as his Deputy Prime Minister, Malaysia would have had a different history. Hussein erroneously thought that since Mahathir was a lone ranger in politics and did not have any grassroots support, he would not be a challenge to him. Mahathir, however, being the wily Keralan that he was, managed to outmaneuver Hussein out of office in what's seen today as virtually a coup d'etat.

This was how Mahathir repaid Abdul Razak, Najib's father and Hussein's brother-in-law, who brought him back to Umno after having being sacked by Tunku Abdul Rahman for being one of the three arch villains behind the May 13 race riots. The other two arch villains were Razak himself and then Selangor Menteri Besar Harun Idris who prevailed on the former to re-admit Mahathir into Umno.

The issue that Mahathir used against Hussein was the allegation that the latter's wife was virtually running Petronas from her house. The Dap mysteriously received, now believed to be from Mahathir, documents in the post on the allegation and on Exxon allegedly stealing Malaysian oil on the high seas unknown to Petronas. Then Dap secretary-general Lim Kit Siang ended up in Court as a result of the documents as Exxon fought back with a legal suit.

The story, as it goes further, is that Mahathir had Hussein's office completely cleared out when the Prime Minister was subsequently in London for medical attention.

He also reportedly spread rumours, in hinting at the allegations on Petronas/Exxon, that Hussein had a "terrible heart condition" and would be stepping down as Prime Minister upon his return "for health reasons". Mahathir's regime was a time of great rumour-mongering and all of which subsequently turned out to be true since they originated from the man himself.

It was Dap, albeit inadvertently, who helped put Mahathir in the Prime Minister's chair.

Now, Najib has the opportunity to settle scores on behalf of Hussein, his father and Tunku and embark on a real purge of Umno and BN members he shouldn't field as candidates. But will he rise to the occassion or is the latest MACC ploy just to negotiate better exit terms for himself and Rosmah?

If Najib had the guts …

But if Najib could summon up the courage to launch a fight-back, then his primary purpose of bringing in MACC would be to eliminate those who are not in his camp.

This would include Muhyiddin, who is in cahoots with Mahathir to undermine him. However, MACC or no MACC, it would be difficult for Najib to drop Muhyiddin and get away with it. He would need a more complex plot and there is no enough time to get one going. However, Najib can get poetic justice by fielding only Muhyiddin from the latter's and Mahathir's camp.

It would not be a good idea for Najib to pack the list of BN candidates with only his people. He should include some from the Tunku, Hussein, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Musa Hitam and Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah camps as well. This is the time for them to make a comeback and help neutralise Mahathir who never really had any grassroots support in Umno.

Mahathir survived by first pitting Musa Hitam and Tengku Razaleigh against each other not once but twice. He himself was returned unopposed. This is a feat he stage-managed. If either Musa or Razaleigh had taken on Mahathir for the Umno Presidency then, they could have beaten him.

Mahathir used everyone and betrayed them

Mahathir, having used Musa to neutralize Razaleigh – hinting that Razaleigh won't be Deputy Prime Minister if he won — subsequently spread rumours that the Mahathir-Musa 2M Administration would henceforth be the Mahathir Mohamad 2M Administration. Musa resigned and played into Mahathir's hands.

Mahathir then brought in veteran Ghaffar Baba, a strong grassroots man who had the backing of Malay teachers who then formed the bulk of the Umno membership, as his Deputy Prime Minister. It was Ghaffar who helped to pull in votes for Mahathir as Umno president in the face of a combined assault by Razaleigh and Musa for the Presidency and Deputy Presidency. Even then Mahathir would not have made it had he not received the backing of votes from 30 illegal branches created by him.

As history has recorded, Mahathir used Anwar Ibrahim to ‘kill’ Ghaffar Baba. Subsequently, he had Anwar incarcerated on trumped-up sodomy charges because the latter realised that the former was a grave danger to Umno, the Malays and the country.

Mahathir's past will catch up with him in the present to haunt his future. It should be evident when Najib announces the list of Umno and BN candidates for the 13th GE and the Mahathir-Muhyiddin camps find they have been left out in the cold.

Even if Najib disappoints, even if he chickens out and submits to the older man’s will in exchange for more largesse, time has is running out. And it’s not just for Mahathir but for the bad brand name that Umno has become thanks to selfish leaders who through the decades placed their vested interests way ahead of the party’s.

It's highly unlikely that anyone dropped from the Mahathir and Muhyiddin camps would be fielded by Pakatan Rakyat, led by Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim. If at all, Pakatan should only consider accepting candidates from the Tunku, Hussein, Badawi, Musa Hitam, Razaleigh and Najib camps who had expected to be fielded by BN but were not. The doors are fast closing even on this group. Brimming with young talent, Pakatan might not have space!

Illicit funds

Posted: 23 Dec 2012 02:08 AM PST

The people continue to be concerned about illicit funds flowing out of Malaysia. For example, an estimate shows that in 2009 at leat RM90 billion flowed out of this country. In 2010, it was RM196 billion. The Central Government has yet to announce its estimates of the country's loss due to illicit funds & the effective measures to put a stop to such activities.

新营业空间太小了 砂督小贩联署拒迁

Posted: 22 Dec 2012 01:01 AM PST


砂督周末市集进入搬迁倒数阶段,我上午与朋嶺区州议员杨薇讳及石角区州议员周宛诗以及党员同前往砂督周日市集,为当地的小贩做最后的捍卫冲刺。

目前我们已收集了大约400名砂督周日市集的小贩联署拒搬的文件,毕竟小贩们表态说,周日市集只是在周六与周日运作,不是平日运作。

我相信,由于小贩忙于生意,有些还未签名,惟,该党所接触的砂督周日小贩,有90%是拒绝搬迁。

小贩拒绝搬迁的原因是他们必须从一个稳定收入的地方,搬迁到一个未知数,小贩们面对一切要重新开始的担忧。与此同时,新营业地点的摊位有限,不足以容纳目前周末市集的小贩。

北市市政局目前已将新古巴丽雅小贩中心的管理权交给联邦农产品与销售局(FAMA)负责,而后者也多次与周日市集的小贩开会商讨摊位安排的事宜,却最终没有一个清楚的交代与安排,有的小贩摊位也遭割除。在种种不明朗的情况下,小贩们拒绝搬迁。

我将于下周一拜会北市当局的其中一位总监,并将于部分小贩一同去会见该局总监,尽量将小贩的意见反映给总监知道。

若政府坚决要在明年15日要求小贩搬迁到新小贩中心,可以预见新的营业地点将呈现一片混乱,由于没有明确的摊位安排,届时,小贩们或上演争摊位的局面。据了解,早前砂督周日市集也曾出现争执的局面,直到小贩们知道摊位的范围后,才相安无事。

砂督周日市集约有1800个摊位,新的小贩中心只有800多个摊位,新的小贩中心只有800多个摊位,而政府却要强制所有的周日市集的小贩搬迁,这是不负责任的作法。因此,我认为,政府应该要体恤人民的处境,要让人民更方便去谋生计,而非处处刁难,以政府的观点去执行,而是听取民意。

NUTP: Cadangan ambil guru bahasa Inggeris dari India perlu kajian mendalam

Posted: 23 Dec 2012 06:02 AM PST


December 22, 2012

Kesatuan Perkhidmatan Perguruan Kebangsaan (NUTP) mahu kajian mendalam dilakukan berhubung cadangan mengambil guru bahasa Inggeris dari India untuk mengajar pelajar di negara ini. Presidennya Hashim Adnan berkata perbincangan perlu dilakukan dengan pakar dalam bahasa itu bersama NUTP dan Kementerian Pelajaran bagi memastikan sebarang keputusan dibuat akan menguntungkan kerajaan. 

"Diharap (cadangan itu) tidak akan dilaksanakan kerana ia sangat merumitkan. Budak-budak akan menjadi bahan uji kaji dan ini tidak sihat kepada pelajar yang ingin mendapatkan pelajaran bahasa Inggeris daripada orang yang berlainan punca dan latar belakang," katanya. 


Guru bingung dengan cadangan import guru bahasa Inggeris dari India
December 23, 2012

Rancangan Putrajaya untuk mengimport guru bahasa Inggeris dari India kelihatan ditentang oleh para pendidik yang meragui idea dari kerajaan untuk membantu pelajar menguasai bahasa tersebut.

"Saya ingin bertanya, kenapa kita perlukan orang asing mengajar rakyat Malaysia?" kata Khairun Nisa yang mengajar bahasa tersebut di sebuah sekolah di Manjung, Perak.

Guru yang berusia 27 tahun itu berkata dakwaan kerajaan mengenai kekurangan guru bahasa Inggeris adalah mitos dan tidak masuk akal.

Khairun merasa bingung dengan tindakan kerajaan untuk mengimport tenaga luar untuk mengajar bahasa Inggeris, yang turut dikongsi oleh Shawn Shim, yang mengajar di Austin Heights School, sebuah sekolah antarabangsa di Johor.

Menurut Shim, jumlah tenaga pengajar tempatan yang tidak gembira dengan gaji yang diterima oleh tenaga pengajar asing, menjadikan sebab mengapa warga India mahu mengajar di Malaysia.

"Secara purata, mereka menerima antara RM1,000 ke RM1,500 di India, tetapi mereka akan dapat RM4,000 ke RM8,000 mengikut taraf.

"Pengajar kulit putih pula mendapat dari RM8,000 hingga RM10,000 dan di sekolah swasta, gaji mereka mencecah RM25,000," katanya lagi.


MALAYSIA AMBIL GURU BAHASA INGGERIS DARI INDIA

20 Dis. 2012 - Malaysia bercadang mengambil sejumlah guru bahasa Inggeris dari India untuk mengajar pelajar-pelajar Malaysia dalam usaha meningkatkan kemahiran bahasa tersebut, kata Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Perdana Menteri berkata, cadangan tersebut disambut baik oleh Perdana Menteri India, Dr. Manmohan Singh yang mengarahkan tindakan susulan dilakukan segera.

Perdana Menteri berkata demikian kepada wartawan Malaysia selepas mengadakan pertemuan dua hala dengan Manmohan dan bermesyuarat dengan anggota Forum Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Malaysia-India (MICEOF) di sini hari ini.


NAJIB, MUHYIDDIN GADAI MASA DEPAN 7,000 GRADUAN PENDIDIKAN IPTS

20 Dis 2012 : Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak mempertaruh masa depan 7,000 graduan Ijazah Sarjana Muda Pendidikan (ISMP) Institusi Pengajian Tinggi Swasta (IPTS) demi mengaut keuntungan daripada pelajar, sedangkan kursus tersebut gagal menawar peluang pekerjaan kepada mereka.

Pengarah Strategi KEADILAN, Rafizi Ramli berkata, dari jumlah itu, 2,000 graduan tersebut adalah daripada Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (UniRazak) yang dipengerusikan oleh Najib.

Beliau berkata, seluruh graduan tersebut masih menganggur menyebabkan mereka tidak mampu membayar hutang pinjaman Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional (PTPTN).

"Umno perlu bertangungjawab terhadap nasib graduan-graduan ini kerana institusi yang rapat dengan pimpinan Umno antaranya seperti UniRazak.

"UniRazak dimiliki Yayasan Pintar dan Lembaga Pengarahnya dianggotai Datuk Seri Najib, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussien, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Datuk Mustapha Mohamad dan Datuk Seri Ali Rustam," katanya pada sidang media di Ibu Pejabat KEADILAN di sini hari ini.

Menurutnya, perkara tersebut berpunca apabila pemimpin Umno memperdagangkan institusi pendidikan demi kemewahan.

"Kementerian Pendidikan Tinggi (KPT) dalam masa sama meluluskan kuota pengambilan yang memberi lesen kepada UniRazak dengan memberi gambaran graduan-graduan ini akan mendapat pekerjaan di dalam perkhidmatan perguruan negara.
