Barisan Nasional (BN) Social Political Buzz & Bulls


Bekas Perdana Menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad hari ini mencabar Ketua Pembangkang Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim untuk tunjukkan surat yang ditulis beliau kepada Bank Dunia untuk bantuan dana semasa krisis kewangan 1999.
Dr Mahathir berkata beliau adalah orang yang menolak pinjaman daripada Bank Dunia pada masa itu tetapi, sekiranya apa yang didakwa oleh Anwar itu benar, sila tunjukkan surat itu.
"Saya tahu kalau kita terima pinjaman daripada Bank Dunia, kita akan menjadi hamba kepada mereka yang tolong kita dan disebabkan itu kita tidak berbuat demikian.
"Kalau apa yang dikatakan oleh Anwar itu benar, saya cabar dia bersumpah laknat di Masjid dengan al-Quran. Saya sanggup berbuat demikian sekiranya diperlukan," katanya kepada pemberita selepas merasmikan Majlis Multaqa Wehdatul Ummah ke tiga di sini hari ini.
Dr Mahathir berkata demikian ketika diminta mengulas laporan sebuah berita online (Malaysiakini) hari ini, yang melaporkan bahawa Anwar telah membuat dakwaan mengejutkan terhadap 'bekas mentornya' Dr Mahathir bahawa bekas perdana menteri itu pernah menulis kepada Bank Dunia untuk bantuan dana semasa krisis kewangan 1999.
Mengulas lanjut, Dr Mahathir berkata Anwar terkenal sebagai orang yang memperkenalkan cara-cara Bank Dunia dan Tabung Kewangan Antarabangsa (IMF) pada masa itu.
"Saya biasa cakap kepada dia (Anwar), kalau kita buat pinjaman kepada bank dunia, kita tidak akan ada gaji yang cukup untuk bayar kepada pegawai-pegawai kita. Tetapi dia telah ikut cara-cara bank dunia sampai rosak fikirannya," katanya.
Sementara itu, Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop yang turut bersama berkata beliau boleh menjadi saksi bahawa Dr Mahathir adalah orang yang menolak pertolongan bank dunia dan apa yang didakwa oleh Anwar itu tidak benar.
Nor Mohamed yang juga Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri berkata beliau masih ingat ada satu ketika wakil daripada bank dunia dan IMF telah datang untuk mencari Dr Mahathir untuk membincang tentang cara untuk elakkan krisis pada 1999.
"Wakil bank dunia itu telah mencadangkan kepada Dr Mahathir untuk menambah kadar faedah rumah, kerajaan pula tidak boleh belanja dan bank negara harus tarik balik semua pinjaman untuk elakkan krisis ekonomi.
"Namun Dr Mahathir memberitahu mereka bahawa cadangan itu akan membawa kepada 'bloods in the street' dan mereka berkata 'let it be bloods in the streets' tetapi cadangan itu telah dibantah keras oleh Dr Mahathir yang kemudiannya menghalau wakil bank dunia itu keluar dari pejabatnya pada ketika itu," katanya.

Opposition ... where got democrasy?

The problem with PAS is they dont know how to spell their acronym. It should be PIS. In Jawi, it is Pa, Alif, Sin. Pa is P, Alif is I and Sin is S. So it is PIS. So they are PIS - and this is their problem. Also they are undemocractic - they want to impose their strange hudud, women cannot hold positions, only Muslims can be Prime Minister and stuff. This is NOT democratic.
The DAP is a Chinese secret society. No no one knows the undemocratic and mysterious interior workings of this outfit. There is no UMNO style bashing and no holds barred fighting for the party votes. Things are done in secret - hush hush. The PM has said that only 20 members of the secretive central committee decide the fate of the whole party.
The PKR exists for one purpose only - to cover up the brader's exposed bum. For 14 years they have been taken for one huge ride by the brader and his family members. Their platform has been "NO I did not liwat, No I did not sleep with anyone else". What a resume. ICMA politics = I cover my a$ $ .
This 14 year charade is now coming to a sad end. Good bye. The brader is the Ketua Umum, the wife is the president, the daughter is the foremost MP, the dearly beloved is the No. 2. Forget about democracy. Justice pun tak ada.

Let's pray before prayers are said for us! Hayya Alas Solah!

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

My dear respected and beloved Ikhwanul Muslimin na wal Muslimat.

Time and times again, we get the reminder or call enjoining us to perform our prayers.

How many of us realize that within the next second, our life might just abruptly come to its end?

Seriously! There is a time frame that each of us live in. Doesn't matter who we are or what social standing we enjoy or suffer from?

The Malaikatul Maut @ Angel of Death, Sayyidina Izra'il Alaihis Salam will come  and take our soul when our time is up!

There's no plea bargaining with him. No under or over the table deals that he will consent to. All he does is to obey the Will and Taqdeer of Allahu Ta'ala over us.

Don't gamble with our last remaining moments on Earth. We are not immortals. We do not live forever.

Even the Greatest Messenger of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala has returned to His Mercy a thousand four hundred over years ago. He was the last of God's Messengers.

Do not make the mistake of postponing our daily prayers. Even those who have missed out performing their prayers all these while can rectify their errors.

Go, take your bath and your wudhu. Start afresh. Allah the Most Compassionate will accept our repentance and grant us His Forgiveness.

Make sure we have settled our prayers if it is the last thing we get to do?

May Allah bless us with the Best Ending and spare us from Jahannam.


Surah Az Zukhruf Chapter 43 Verse 14:

Wa-inna ila rabbinalamunqaliboon
Sahih International
And indeed we, to our Lord, will [surely] return."
"Dan sesungguhnya kepada Tuhan kamilah, kami akan kembali!"

This reminder comes to you as a religious service from your brother in Islam:

Idris Jala’s rectification

Exactly a week ago, Dato Seri Idris Jala was 'quoted' by The Malaysian Insider as saying "Malaysia could still become bankrupt within a decade if it spends borrowed money on operational expenditure such as subsidies instead of investing the cash."

The opposition portal also alluded that this statement triggers alarm bells with forecast of bankruptcy.

As the result, blogger SatD made a scathing attack on Idris Jala in his blog and this writer further enquired through twitter on his statement particularly the part where the government could have breached some fiscal rules and guidelines (please refer here).

Below is the twitter conversation this writer had with him concerning the issue:

Is @IdrisJala_ implying e Finance Minister @NajibRazak didn't follow fiscal rules n had mixed up e revenue/subsidies & borrowings/devlpmnt?

2 Nov via UberSocial for BlackBerry 


PM @NajibRazak n Husni Hanadzlah must answer what @IdrisJala_ had said; that Finance Ministry had broken e fiscal guidelines. 
Pls watch my speech on video, I spoke positively abt our economy! I spent 1 hour explaining what the Govt is doing@JebatMustDie @NajibRazak
2 Nov via Twitter for BlackBerry®
@JebatMustDie. I was responding to a question using scenarios (IF assumption). Under ETP, Msia shd be high income economy (not bankrupt) 

2 Nov via Twitter for BlackBerry®

TQ for d reply TS @IdrisJala_ but it didn't answer e Q. Is govt breaking e fiscal rules by using borrowings to finance subsidies? TQ 

2 Nov via UberSocial for BlackBerry

@JebatMustDie. The govt is NOT breaking any fiscal rules! I hope you listen to my video (presn and QA). Nothing wrong with what I said. 

2 Nov via Twitter for iPad

M'sian Insider wrote differently from what u said @IdrisJala_ @etp_roadmap (cont)

2 Nov via UberSocial for BlackBerry

Now you know! What people say can easily be reported differently.@JebatMustDie @etp_roadmap

2 Nov via Twitter for BlackBerry®

Sloppy reporting from TMI. Has PEMANDU rectified e article? :) RT@IdrisJala_: Now u know! What ppl say can easily be reported differently.

2 Nov via UberSocial for BlackBerry

As the result of intentional spin by The Malaysian Insider, The Mole contacted Idris Jala directly over this miscommunication and published an article to straighten the whole issue:

Idris Jala: 'IF" is the word

By Azreen HaniThursday, November 3, 2011

KUALA LUMPUR: Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Idris Jala has called on his critics and those bent on running down the government's Economic Transformation Plan to listen carefully to his statements.

Stressing that the government did not break any fiscal rules, as implied by a newsportal, Idris who is also the Performance Management & Delivery Unit (Pemandu) chief said his statement about the country going bankrupt had once again been reported in bad light.

Idris was responding to a question posed on to him by blogger Jebat Must Die via micro blogging site Twitter.

Screen capture of the tweets

 Jebat Must Die had questioned Idris if it was true that the government breached fiscal rules by using borrowings to finance government subsidies.

In his reply Idris he tweeted: "The govt is NOT breaking any fiscal rules! I hope you listen to my video (presn and QA). Nothing wrong with what I said." (The government is not breaking any fiscal rules! I hope you listen to my video (presentation and QA). Nothing wrong with what I said.)

The question was raised by the blogger based on a report by The Malaysian Insider which stated that Malaysia could become bankrupt if it spends borrowed money on operational expenditures such as subsidies instead of investing the cash.

Jebat Must Die in his latest blog posting asked whether Idris was implying that there is dereliction of duty by the Minister of Finance pertaining the government's its fiscal responsibilities.

"Is he (Idris) saying that Malaysia will go bust if Government continues to finance subsidies through borrowings? Since we know that it is against the law to do that, we are now stuck in a quandary." Jebat Must Die queried.

The fiscal rules and guidelines stated that operating expenditure is financed through revenues while borrowings are only used for development expenditure.

Idris pointed that his statement was reported differently.

Another blogger, SatD, the first to raised the issue following the newsportal report also pointed that Idris must be able to differentiate between development expenditure and operating expenditure of the government.

"What you are saying is misleading and reckless for someone of your position… give the impression that our Government does not have any financial discipline and does not adhere to the Law as provided for by the Constitution and its guidelines," he wrote, criticising Idris for his statement (as reported by the news portal).

An officer from ETP's corporate communications unit told The Mole the news portal did not report Idris's comments in its actual context.

Idris, during the Q and A session inconjunction with ETP's first year anniversary on Tuesday, gave a briefing on programme's progress and answered a host of queries from the public.

Responding to a question on the rationalisation of subsidies and his past statement that the country could face a possibility of going bankrupt, Idris re-iterated that his statement on the country being bankrupt was based on a presumption that 'IF nothing was done" to improve the economy.

"If our economy grows for the next ten year with less than 4 per cent, if we grow with only 3 per cent and we do not curb our operational expenditures which includes subsidies, and we need to borrow at 12.5 per cent, if our annual debt rises at 12.5 per cent per annum as we did in the last 10 years, and if our revenue does not grow, then we've had it. The presumption of we've had it means we would have reached our debt position of 100 per cent of GDP by 2019."

Idris pointed that the introduction of ETP showed the government's seriousness developing the economy in a very focused manner while ensuring Malaysia and her people achieved greater prosperity.

On suggestions that the government should not borrow money as it would increase national debt, Idris said it was not wrong to borrow.

"We should borrow the money provided that it is spent as an investment, (like) development expenditure (rather) than operating expenditure."

"That is why when you run an economy of the country; we need to make sure our borrowing is proportionately focused on the investment," he explained.

Pemandu has also released the full context of Idris' comments on the need for Malaysia to keep GDP (gross domestic product) growing, as well as clarifications on the "bankruptcy" issue.

Time and time again, The Malaysian Insider was caught spinning what would be considered as a deliberate attempt to mislead their readers. This practice must stop. The country's economic prospect looks fine. I believe the opposition has no more issue to criticise the Government in order to rile the public to vote against It.

The latest attempt by Anwar Ibrahim is one of them.

What Idris Jala should have said and promote to public is this: With ETP, Malaysia will not face bankruptcy. Full stop.

Thank you.

Sebenarnya, PAS tidak sedar selama ini, parti itu lemah bukan kerana UMNO tetapi akibat tindakan mereka sendiri yang terlalu taksub dengan kuasa politik yang dijanjikan oleh PKR dan DAP.

Cuba tengok kes Dr. Hasan Ali yang tengah meletup. UMNO tidak semena-mena jagi mangsa apabila Setiausaha Agung PAS, Mustafa Ali mengatakan Exco Kerajaan Negeri Selangor itu dan bekas Timbalan Presiden PAS, Nasharudin Mat Isa terperangkap dengan agenda UMNO untuk melemahkan PAS. 

Soalnya, apa kaitan UMNO dalam isu Hasan? Siapa sebenarnya yang membuat kenyataan bahawa Hasan digugurkan daripada menjadi calon PAS dalam pilihan raya umum nanti? Pemimpin PAS atau pemimpin UMNO?

Kenapa pula UMNO hendak menentukan nasib Hasan? Dr Hasan Ali bukannya wakil rakyat UMNO tetapi wakil rakyat PAS?

Inilah perangai buruk PAS yang menghantui mereka sejak dari dulu lagi.. menyalahkan orang lain diatas kelemahan sendiri dimana  UMNO pastinya akan diseret bersama bagi menutupi pergolakan yang berlaku di dalam PAS...

Mungkin disebabkan amalan politik yang pelik ini lah yang membuatkan PAS tidak maju dan sentiasa duduk di takuk yang lama...

Selamat Berjuang Harimau Malaya!

Harimau Malaya vs. Garuda


Words of passion and motivation - picture from @khairulryezal

Our Under 23 football quad secured the sweetest victory in Stadium Bung Karno after drew 1 – 1 in the normal 90 minutes. Goals from each side of the half time by Indonesia and Malaysia respectively forced the game to be played in the extra time. Stalemate and goalless in extra time is proceeded by penalty shootout which Malaysia eventually won with 4 – 3 aggregate.

Malaysia successfully won gold medal and retain its title as defending champion of SEA Games football sport. Congratulations Harimau Malaya!

—————— Original article:

It is reported all over the news. The SEA Games football final between Indonesia and the defending gold medallist, Malaysia will be the sporting highlight of the year.

It is labeled as a grudge match and rightly so judging from the circumstances surrounding the SEA Games.

The Indonesians had taken bad sportsmanship to another level where shoddy treatment of our athletes and officials were blatantly undisguised; the contempt shown by their supporters in their stadiums everytime our national anthem were playing was uncouth and crude; the booing of our athletes whenever they are performing are highly uncalled for.

The level of hostility shown by the host country towards their guests probably reached new found heights when our football national squad requested to be safeguarded in an armoured vehicle in their journey from their hotel to the stadium.

This would have never happened in any other country and compounding to our dismay, other countries are spared from this enmity. The hatred is specific. The fact that it is targeted by a country which is most similar to us in culture and demographics must be painful to accept.

But be as it may, our boys must persevere. They should have the testicular fortitude to fend off the mind numbing, nerve wrecking atmosphere in the stadium. They must summon the courage of all Malaysians and fight to the end just like how they won the Suzuki Cup last year. The mood in Indonesia and Malaysia tonight will be electrifying. The atmosphere in both countries will be epic.

Our prayers and passion are with you.

Biar putih tulang jangan berputih mata!

Azman Mokhtar Must Go (Part 1)

I have been monitoring the recent pandemonium surrounding our aviation industry concerning very top level personnel which is rather embarrassing and unprecedented in terms of its sheer implications.

My last article regarding an apparent share swap between Air Asia and Malaysia Airlines ("MAS") turned out to be an outright management takeover of MAS by Air Asia as time moves on.

Right from the outset, there is something really wrong with the deal but the market was somewhat pacified when Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar assured Malaysians that MAS will not be taken over by Air Asia. The justification of the deal was that it will help the floundering MAS.

But the manner the deal was executed raised many eyebrows.

Khazanah had to fork out tax payers' money to buy Air Asia's over-priced shares which, few months before the share swap deal was announced on August 9th, was escalating sky high in the regions of more than RM4.

Juxtaposing this with the share price of MAS which went in a downward spiral a few months before the deal to be around RM1.60, allegations of insider's trading and share price manipulation emerged.

MAS and Air Asia's share counters were suspended on the 8th August but the suspension came too late and was seen as just a formality as the little Napoleons in Khazanah had made the final preparations of the share swap and it was beyond the point of no return at that time. True enough, the share swap was announced on 9th August amidst all the speculation and mystery.

In the end, Tune Air Sdn Bhd which controls Air Asia, bought 20% of cheap MAS shares while tax payers had to buy the much higher Air Asia shares. To make matters worse, the share price of Air Asia dropped the very next day thus the tax payers lost more money barely 24 hours after the deal was announced.

As Khazanah lost money over the deal, the new shareholders of MAS; Tony Fernandes and Kamaruddin Meranun gained more money as MAS shares jumped to RM1.79; 19 sen more than the price they had to pay to get the 20% stake.

The share swap enables Tony Fernandes and his partner to be executive directors of MAS while non of MAS' Board of Directors were elected as Air Asia's director. As the result, Air Asia now has the ability to learn about MAS' business plans on yearly, monthly, weekly or daily basis while MAS has no clue on what Air Asia might do. One wonders how this can help MAS in the long run.

Tony himself was quoted in newspapers saying that the share swap is not a merger but an alignment of both companies' shareholders. In his own words – "this is not a merger; it is a shareholder alignment".

Therefore, why is MAS being unfairly disadvantaged from the start?

Furthermore, soon after the deal was announced and inked, the first conflict of interest occurred when MAS had to fork out RM18 million ringgit and give it to QPR; a lowly football club owned by Tony Fernandes.

Basically, MAS was made to give millions of ringgit to one of its directors in exchange of 11 jerseys with MAS logo printed on it.

MAS is not Berjaya, Genting UK or YTL. It is owned by the government and ultimately owned by the people. MAS suffered more than RM700 million losses in the first half of 2011 and still can afford to pay and enrich one of its director by another RM18 million.

What irked me the most is that Air Asia will only fork out RM12 million for the RM30 million advertising deal. A deal which was brokered and price set by Tony himself.

For Air Asia, it is the case of getting money from Tony's right pocket and putting it into his left. But for MAS, they were screwed from the beginning.

All this happened under the watchful eye of Azman Mokhtar. His partner in the form of Danny Yusof made to look like Tony's chief khadam and had to fly all the way to England to witness the official signing of giving away MAS' precious fund to Tony.

Note that Genting spent only RM17 million to sponsor an even bigger club, Aston Villa which undoubtedly, after all is said and done, made Danny Yusof, the executive director of MAS, an idiot.

In any other instances which all experts of corporate governance will agree, the whole board of directors of MAS will be hauled up and made to answer in Parliament on the blatant misappropriation of funds of a GLC. Heads should roll.

Imagine, if money from a GLC was given to another company belonged to its new director in exchange of something which is terribly overpriced.

It is wrong on two counts; the over inflated price, and the conflict of interests that involved. By right, Tony Fernandes and Kamarudin Meranun should have either resigned from MAS' Board or from QPR's for the deal to happen.

But what did the boss of Khazanah do?

Azman Mokhtar claimed that the QPR sponsorship is a good deal. From which part of the abyss he would have made that call, I can never fathom.

What is so good about it when RM18 million is used to sponsor home jerseys which could only be seen by 18,500 spectators in QPR's small stadium while Air Asia which only had to fork out RM12 million has its logo in the away jerseys which can be seen by up to 60,000 spectators if they play much bigger teams?

Will this benefit MAS, or does it benefit Air Asia more?

Azman Mokhtar is the tumour that is infecting Khazanah Nasional ever since he was appointed to lead the corporation while his misjudgments and bad decisions are diseases that have been plaguing the government's investment arm all this while.

After Khazanah lost RM18 billion worth of investments made in 2008, Azman Mokhtar is still being trusted to play with tax payers' money while the government has no control over him. In fact, for this huge loss, his contract was extended for another 3 years!

Chua: Give recognition where it’s due -

Saturday December 17, 2011

Chua: Give recognition where it's due

BANTING: The MCA does not expect DAP MPs who benefited from the party's initiatives to be grateful but to at least recognise the services rendered, party said.

He cited Tunku Abdul Rahman College (TARC) and Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman as examples of MCA's significant contributions to education while the DAP had nothing to show despite its frequent criticisms.

The issue came up after Chinese newspaper Guang Ming Daily and online portal reported that Serdang MP Teo Nie Ching's mother, who has a heart problem, had sought medical help from Negri Sembilan MCA.

The portal had also revealed that Bukit Mertajam MP and Wanita DAP chief Chong Eng had studied at TARC.

PAS MP for Kubang Kerian Salahuddin Ayub, who obtained a Diploma in Business Administration at TARC, was also named.

Seputeh MP Teresa Kok issued a statement on Wednesday admitting that she, too, had studied at TARC but she said that MCA should not expect indefinite gratitude.

On Thursday, Dr Chua warned all parties not to politicise MCA's good deeds.

"Any good deeds from the party, such as providing education or medical attention, are done without any political agenda.

"We feel it is MCA's responsibility to provide help to the needy.

"All we expect in return is for the people to benefit from it," he said after attending the 1MCA Medical Foundation dinner here.

On another matter, Dr Chua slammed the DAP for not walking the talk.

"Until now, you do not see any low-cost homes by the Penang government?

"They promised to convert leasehold land to freehold, but nothing has changed yet.

"What have they done for the people?" he asked.

On MCA's membership, Dr Chua said about 32,000 people had joined the party since 2008.

"The increase in membership shows that people are confident with us," he said.

Azman Mokhtar Must Really Go (Part 2)

In the first part of this article, we just scratched the surface of the lopsided sponsorship deal that benefited Air Asia more than MAS although the latter paid more money into the coffers of QPR.

But that's not all. There are more serious issues at stake.

If we imagine all of us are the Board of Directors in MAS, which team should we put our money into; QPR, Manchester United, Arsenal or Liverpool?

Good branding strategy by owners of Mister Potato to associate themselves with Man United

If Telekom and even Mister Potato can sponsor Manchester United, why on earth would Malaysia Airlines sponsor a newly promoted team like QPR?

The next question is, how long had the marketing team in MAS looked into advertising in an English Premier League teams? Was decision made before the share-swap or after?

Why were better and bigger clubs not selected?

I suspect, just like how any normal consultant turned management person like Danny Yusof would react, the deal was a kneejerk reaction after being cajoled by Tony Fernandes and it was shoved into MAS' throat without any proper marketing analysis on return on investment.

There is no way a sane Marketing head of a GLC would give away RM18 million knowing full well that the return on investment of its advertising value will be much higher if he had sponsored other bigger clubs.

Who in MAS decides where the advertising and promotions money should go? What kind of marketing clause been inserted in the share-swap deal? Was there an 'advertising collaboration' clause or a 'joint marketing' clause in the agreement? That will spell disaster in terms of MAS' branding.

We often hear ad nauseam after the share swap that MAS is a premium airline. So why is this premium brand putting its hard earned millions into a team which has no significant brand value at all? Shouldn't a premium airline sponsor a premium EPL team?

What is wrong with the Deputy CEO of MAS, Danny Yusof? Did he knock his head on the way to MAS' office some time ago?

The exposure of MAS logo in home games at Loftus Road stadium is lower when compared to the exposure Air Asia logo will get when they go away to play other teams. This is common sense.

The EPL limits the number of live matches on TV in order to protect the stadiums' revenue from ticket sales. Out of 380 matches in a season, the maximum number of live matches on TV is set at 138 per season. How many live matches QPR could get as compared to Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester City or even Everton?

Is Azman Mokhtar, representing the biggest shareholder of MAS, really that wise? Logic says otherwise.

Not to mention the risk of QPR getting relegated this very season.

The odds on QPR to be relegated this season as placed by sports betting companies; the odds are not good

How many games from the 2nd tier Championship League have we watched from Astro or from all around the world?

Tony Fernandes said this in an interview:

Expressing all the right sentiments to soothe QPR fans' sullen resentment over the price hikes that immediately followed May's promotion to the Premier League, Fernandes, in an interview with the Guardian, was not all soft soap, however. He made no secret that he was motivated to buy QPR for £45m not only for the love of football, but as a sponsorship, marketing vehicle for AirAsia, where he remains a significant shareholder, and Malaysian Airlines, in which he and a partner more recently bought a 20% stake.

"Many people do not realise the power of sport to market a brand," said Fernandes, whose Lotus Formula One team is sponsored by AirAsia, which also sponsored last year's British Grand Prix and, for a time, Manchester United. "You can spend £40m on advertising and have nothing like the same effect. Around the world, everybody watches Premier League football."

What happens if that 'marketing vehicle' has no value in terms if advertising potential? Easy for Tony to say that there is always risks when doing business. It is always easy to say that when RM18 million is not his money to begin with.

And of course, not everyone watches QPR and certainly QPR is not the team to be given priority to be shown on TV. And for what is worth, we all know QPR isn't the first team that Tony wants. He had to settle for QPR after his foray into buying Wet Ham United did not materialise.

Malaysia's potato heads; beloved by Najib Tun Razak

If you were MAS shareholder, wouldn't you be mad? If a minority Air Asia shareholder can get angry when Air Asia discontinued sponsoring Manchester United and parked their RM12 million into one of the smallest team in EPL, shouldn't we, MAS' ultimate stakeholders demand an explanation from Danny Yusof and his boss, Azman Mokhtar?

There is a serious corporate governance issue here from both MAS and Air Asia's shareholders' point of view; why should Air Asia and MAS direct its advertising money to AirAsia's Group CEO and MAS' executive director, Tony Fernandes?

But that is not all what Azman Mokhtar failed as the Managing Director of Khazanah Nasional.

In the recent spat between Tony Fernandes and Malaysia Airport Holdings Berhad ("MAHB"), Azman Mokhtar seemed incapable and lacking the testicular fortitude to defend MAHB.

Khazanah owns 54% of MAHB whereby the latter had given out dividends of more than RM150 million on yearly basis since 2007 and yet, Azman Mokhtar seemed to cower in fear over someone who owns only 20% of MAS.

Anwar Ibrahim ... ahli Freemason Lodge Ottawa?

Extract komen Afterdark di sini adalah seperti berikut:

Anwar Ibrahim is a Freemason.. Recently his name popped out in Ottawa Masonic Centre, Canada under Civil Service Masonic Lodge No. 148.

[Laman web di sini tetapi mesej seperti di atas sudah diturunkan.]

Certainly you have heard that. But I agreed that Freemason is not the world biggest menace. As I've put it in my article, most members of the Masonry are harmless. In America most of them thought they were being patriotic. Some in the world even believe they're serving the Lord.

But, lack of understanding on how the Devil's mind work does caused some organization to deviate from the path it originally intended. So the Freemason, the Jesuits, The Bilderberg Group, Ordo Templi Orientis, The Black Hand, The Knights of the Golden Circle, The Rosicrucianism etc etc ..

I'm sure none of them actually wanted to start out as servants of Satan but eventually they veered into that path anyway and serve Luciferian purpose.

As avid reader and researcher of Freemason's history, I'm sur! e you wo uld agreed that Anwar's choice of emblem for his political party ('an open eye which lighten up the path') is very very conspicuous indeed...."

EP agak pelik bila Nik Aziz kata penguguran Dr Hasan Ali hanya khabar angin apabila ramai pemimpin PAS pusat telah membuat kenyataan mengenai perkara ini...Nik Aziz ni ada di dunia mana ye sampai tak tahu langsung apa yang terjadi dalam PAS?? Mursyidur ke atau Murstidur Am PAS??

Kalau nak tipu pun agak-agak la sikit...jangan sampai nampak bodoh sangat...

Mursyidul Am Pas, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat meminta orang ramai tidak mempercayai khabar angin mengenai status keahlian Exco Kerajaan Selangor, Datuk Dr Hasan Ali dalam parti itu.

Beliau yang juga Menteri Besar Kelantan berkata, Pesuruhjaya Pas ada di setiap negeri dan ia sewajarnya menjadi tempat rujukan mengenai apa saja masalah berkaitan parti.

"Saya sendiri sebaga! i Mursyi dul Am Pas belum menerima perkembangan mengenainya (Hasan Ali), yang ada cuma khabar angin.

"Berita mengenai dia akan sampai kepada saya nanti sekiranya ada perubahan sepertimana tanggapan orang ramai, tapi setakat ini tak ada," katanya ketika mengulas mengenai desas-desus yang mengatakan keahlian Hasan Ali digugurkan.

Roadshow Anwar huru harakan M'sia bermula


KUALA LUMPUR 15 Dis. - Ketua Pembangkang Daituk Seri Anwar Ibrahim menjangkakan beliau akan didapati bersalah atas pertuduhan liwat yang dikenakan ke atasnya. Ianya bukan disebabkan beliau mengiyakan perlakukan tersebut, akan tetapi ianya adalah Konspirasi jahat bagi menghalang beliau menumbangkan Kerajaan Barisan Nasional.

Ketua Umum PKR itu turut berikrar akan berjuang menumbangkan Kerajaan pimpinan Datuk Seri Najib waimah dipenjarakan atas pertuduhan tersebut.

Anwar akan meneruskan penguatkuasaan kesatuan Pakatan untuk mengaplikasi perjuangan reformasi beliau walaupun pada ketika itu beliau menjangkakan akan dipenjarakan.

Ahli Parlimen Permatang Pauh tersebut walaubagaimanapun tidak berminat untuk mempersoalkan tindakan bekas Pembantu beliau Saiful Bukhari, akan tetapi musykil dengan tarikh yang dipilih bagi membuat keputusan kes beliau itu.

Anwar mendakwa tarikh 9 Januari tersebut merupakan akan disusuli dengan pembubaran Parlimen bagi membolehkan PRU13 diadakan. [VIDEO DISINI]

Azman Mokhtar Must Go Now (Part 3)

Before we move further, let us look at the issue from other perspective for a bit and go straight to the real issue here.

On top of the pile, is the Prime Minister, Dato' Sri Najib Tun Razak who is also overseeing Khazanah Nasional by virtue of him being the Minister of Finance as well.

Since he could be either impotent in dealing or maybe oblivious towards Azman Mokhtar's many, many failures and shady deals, it is high time the Prime Minister takes a serious look into the affairs of his subordinates. Or at the very least, have the temerity to veer Khazanah Nasional into proper direction and whip it into shape.

Before this issue causes Barisan Nasional to lose more votes (who would want a government which do not punish non performance among its top brass and governmental institutions?), the office of the Prime Minister and the Minister of Finance must be seen as stringent in following its own tagline. Unless of course, the word 'performance' in "People First, Performance Now" connotes a different meaning altogether.

Because based on blog reports on mismanagement by Khazanah, it is unprecedented that a Managing Director of a GLC couldn't manage some of the wealth of this country properly and yet be rewarded for his services to this nation.

Take on recent incident recently – the MAS/AirAsia shareswap. Never mind that the deal is so unfair towards MAS, but what is more glaring are the subsequent actions taken by the besieged MAS which defy any logic.

The latest misjudgment is the termination of 8 routes by MAS; among others, to Rome, Dubai, Buenos Aires and Surabaya.

Reason cited is 'to rationalise unprofitable routes'.

We don't have to tell the ordinary people on the streets on how difficult it was to get those routes in the first place. With so much money being pumped to market and promote those routes, it is certainly not the best way in dealing with an already competitive industry.

The dip in MAS' reputation for dropping these routes will eat up their market share, if not already.

Wouldn't it better if they had focused on passenger mile optimisation whereby apart from operational cost reductions, they must emphasise on selling the premium seats and  reduce non-revenue no-shows. In other words, more aggressive marketing and selling! When was the last time you saw MAS advertisement on TV?

First class and business class seats are important yield boosters. As it is, there are not many first class and business class seats in MAS routes. God forbid if they were to drop London or Paris routes in the near future. That would be a catastrophe. But another airlines' erroneous decision would be another's gain.

The long haul AirAsia X could take over from these routes all to itself.

Actually if AirAsia is really sincere, they can start selling its tickets to passengers going to  routes that MAS flies which AirAsia does not. Like a code sharing system. Meaning, they share the revenue with MAS taking the bigger bulk of it.

MAS abandoning those routes altogether is simply outrageous! To think that MAS does have other code sharing partners to begin with and the fact that MAS and AirAsia own each other's shares but not having any code sharing venture is ludicrous.

One of the biggest and mind boggling operational cost is the flight catering cost. All know that the sole supplier for passengers' food on board of MAS flight is LSG Skychef – Brahim Sdn Bhd; a company owned by Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's brother.

This company was awarded a really long contract to supply on board catering for MAS all the way to 2028! With costs quoted at stratospheric levels, it is bleeding MAS in hundreds of millions on yearly basis. Who is responsible for not looking into this contract and renegotiate a better one?

If they do not have the willpower or enough testosterone to negotiate the prices down, at the very least, the owner of MAS should have terminated this contract for its unfair prices and open another tender to acquire another supplier with more reasonable arrangement.

But they are not doing that. What they did was:

1) advertise in a small English Premier League club

2) killing Firefly slowly 

3) letting many experienced staff go

4) allowing Tony Fernandes making a fool of MAS and Khazanah

5) abandon highly sought after routes

Whose fault is it?

Bear in mind, Azman Mokhtar and his partner in crime, Danny Yusof were the ones responsible for the Wide Asset Unbundling ("WAU") back in 2002 which at that point of time promised everyone to be THE strategy to save MAS.

Fast forward to the future, we know that WAU was a failure. All the double degrees attained from Oxbridge by Danny Yusof or years of experience being a consultant by Azman Mokhtar couldn't save MAS the first time. What makes them think they can save MAS the second time?

So we are back to square one. In fact, MAS' position right after the shareswap is even worse than years before the WAU. Now, MAS is in the hands of its competitor – Air Asia.

Even having a Chief Operating Officer in the form of Mohd Zainal Shaari, another consultant, which was brought into Khazanah from PricewaterhouseCoopers can't seem to save us from further losing money.

The most favourite word of a consultant (and investment banker) is corporate restructuring.

Restructure this and that. Hoping for a synergy of sorts. But restructuring a business on paper via equity transfers are not the only solution to make a business more viable. Any businessmen would know that. But the bosses in Khazanah are not businessmen. Trying to meddle in operations when you have close to zero knowledge about the business is a disaster waiting to happen.

How could Danny Yusof be appointed as the Group Deputy CEO of MAS in charge of operations when he left a trail of failures behind him? He did not do well in Aseambanker (he is not an investment banker); he was in charge of the restructuring of RapidKL of which the Operational Agreement he concocted made RapidKL even worse (he is not a public transport expert); RapidKL had to be restructured again in 2009 before it could sink even deeper.

And now he is trusted to manage MAS' operations? Is he an aviation expert?

Do you know that MAS has no Chief Financial Officer for the longest time? How could a national carrier operate without a CFO? Not only that, the position of Head of Communication is vacant. No wonder MAS is floundering financially and publicly, its image is not all good.

This is not the first time Khazanah making disastrous decisions. In the first part of this article, it was mentioned that Khazanah lost RM18 billion worth of investments in 2008. They suffered losses when their tuna fishing venture lost RM120 million. In the Parkway Holdings fiasco, they lost RM935 million faster than David Copperfield could say "Hey presto!".

Rumours are also circling that they are suffering losses in Malaysia Agrifood Corporation Berhad ("MAFC") – an agriculture venture they cooked up a few years ago.

The mother of all debacle would be the KTM land deal in Tanjung Pagar. After Azman Mokhtar boasted that the deal he pioneered with Singapore was a breakthrough and that the deal is fair and good for Malaysia, he embarrassed Malaysians when Khazanah did not do enough homework and was terribly inefficient in its dealings with Temasek Holdings.

Basically what happened was, under the deal negotiated by Azman, Malaysia will swap the KTM land in Tanjong Pagar for land parcels in affluent Marina South and Ophir-Rochor. The greedy Khazanah probably was swayed with the 60-40 ownership of said land parcels and overlooked a development fee charged by Singapore.

In other words, Malaysians have to pay up to RM1 billion in the form of development fee due to Azman's sheer inability to negotiate a better position for us. To put it bluntly, Azman successfully negotiated a money losing deal for Malaysia.

Azman Mokhtar had indeed overstayed his position in Khazanah Nasional.

All these string of failures and what did the government do?

They gave Azman Mokhtar a Tan Sri-ship and extended his contract.

People First, Performance Now.

Nurul Izzah Akui Anwar GAGAL Ketika dalam Kerajaan!

Kepada mereka yang menonton Wacana Sinar Harian petang semalam – pastinya seronok menyaksikan suasana wacana yang agak terbuka dan menghiburkan. Kalau ada PROFESOR MAHARAJA LAWAK MEGA ABU HASSAN HASBULLAH, maknanya akan gamatlah suasana. Akademiknya tak seberapa. Tapi lebih kepada Prof sembang kedai kopi. Sibuk dengan masalah sendiri.

Apa yang wajar kita berikan perhatian adalah KOMITMEN Nurul Izzah mengenai reform dan perubahan. Memang komited. Kesungguhan Izzah ini kita nampak jelas sehingga dia sendiri mengakui bahawa peranan Anwar sewaktu dalam kerajaan adalah BEBAN POLITIK kepada Pakatan Rakyat. Izzah akui ini. Izzah terpaksa menerima hakikat, tidak mudah untuk Pakatan Rakyat untuk WHITEWASH (cuci) segala masalah dan penipuan yang Anwar buat sewaktu dalam kerajaan.

Bagi mereka yang lahir di bawah zaman Mahathir-Anwar; pasti maklum bahawa Anwar bukanlah seorang HIGH PERFORMANCE MINISTER. Tidak. Dia High Performance dalam bidang lain. Dalam bidang yang tidak memerlukan kebijaksanaan akal dan pemikiran.

Nurul Izzah mengakui bahawa Pakatan Rakyat terpaksa membawa sama BEBAN POLITIK kerana Anwar yang tidak perform semasa dalam kerajaan. Ini adalah fakta yang disampaikan sendiri oleh Izzah di dalam wacana tersebut.

Apa yang Anwar buat?

Banyak benda menyaksikan Anwar tidak melaksanakan amanah sebagai Timbalan Perdana Menteri/Menteri Kewangan seperti yang selalu diungkap oleh Anwar di dalam ceramah dan sebagainya.

Agaknya, Nurul Izzah sempat membaca buku 'Notes to the Prime Minister' karangan TS Nor Yakcop yang secara jelas mengatakan Anwar tidak kompeten dan sala! h menasi hati Perdana Menteri dalam banyak perkara. Jangan kita lupa, TS Nor diarah oleh Jabatan Perdana Menteri untuk terbang ke Buenos Aires, Argentina bagi menerangkan kepada Tun Mahathir mengenai kesilapan Anwar yang terlalu menjadi hamba kepada Washinton Consensus.

Bagus dan amat bijak buat Izzah mengakui perkara yang begini. Tidak guna Izzah mempertahan Anwar yang diakui sebagai pengkhianat Negara kerana tunduk kepada desakan IMF dalam mengurus krisis ekonomi. Izzah pasti boleh pergi jauh jika sanggup keluar daripada BAYANG Anwar yang buruk dan gelap.

Izzah juga mungkin teringat bagaimana SD yang dibuat oleh Dato' Murad tidak berapa lama dulu:-

Liwat's RM3 Billion Fund

Datuk K.S. Nallahaaruppan was recently quoted in newspaper reports that Anwar had many resources to pursue his personal and political agendas. Nalla even revealed that Anwar has stashed about RM3bil, a fortune he made while holding the DPM's office through his cronies and business associates. Nalla also questioned the Statutory Declaration made by former Bank Negara former assistant governor Datuk Abdul Murad Khalid.

Nalla's revelation had prompted UMNO youth chief Khairy Jamaludin to lodge a police report demanding police to investigate the statutory declaration. Khairy said the declaration should be treated seriously as Nallakarupan, former director of Magnum corporation, was a close friend of Anwar and must have accurate information. Although, the integrity and image of Khairy himself are questionable, the fact that Anwar has RM3bil had raised many eyebrows. Where did he get the money from?

Is he qualified to talk about accountability, transparency, good governance and moral values of others when he is tainted and contaminated with greed, cronyism, power abuse and a sodomist, a heinous crime abhorred not only by Malays and Muslims but the Jews. Money can't buy everything. Please read Murad's statutory dec! laration below:


Dato' Abdul Murad Bin Khalid (NRIC No. 531215-08-5957), a Malaysian citizen of full age and care of No. 104, Jalan Setiabakti 9, Bukit Damansara, 50490 Kuala Lumpur

I believe there are at least 20 other "Master Accounts" established for Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim by his various cronies. I believe that the total funds in these 20 Master Accounts run into more that RM3 billion.DSAI's modus operandi is to divide and rule and the operator of each Master Account is not aware of the existence of the other Master Accounts.I believe the Government is aware of who these cronies are.

As far as I know and through my own involvement, more than RM120Million has been paid to Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, his cronies and the Organisations he used to advance his own political ambitions. For example it is within my personal knowledge that on the instructions of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim funds from the Master Account was paid to himself and the following personsand organisations known to be affiliated or connected to him between 1992 to 1997:-

(1) to himself (DSAI) – RM50 million
(2) Dato Abdullah Ahmad (UN) – RM 5 Million
(3) Dato Nasaruddin Jalil – RM.10 Million
(4) Asia Pacific Policy Centre (APPC) – RM 38 million & Douglas H. Paal – (USD 10.0 Million)
(5) Institut Kajian Dasar – (IKD)RM5 Million
(6) Aliran & Dr. Chandra Muzaffar – RM5 Million
(7) ABIM – RM 5 Million
International Institute of Islamic Thoughts (IIIT) – RM 2Million
(8) A UK-based Islamic Foundation – RM 1 Million

Izzah pasti teringat dengan beban-beban ini yang merosakkan nama Anwar sewaktu dalam kerajaan.

Yang pasti, untuk Izzah mempunyai keberanian mengakui perkara ini, bahawa ANWAR adalah BEBAN kepada Pakatan Rakyat wajar dipuji.-gelagat anwar

One licence will do for multiple vehicle operators

Operators of multiple public and commercial vehicles will no longer have to go through the hassle of renewing each of their vehicle's licences with the implementation of a single operator's licence.

Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar said that this would ease the management of almost 90,000 operators involving about 300,000 vehicles nationwide which included buses, taxis and rental cars.

They have until Jan 31 next year to change their current licences to the new one, he said.

"In the past, an operator who has 100 vehicles would need to have 100 licences all at once. The new system only requires an operator to have one operating licence," he told reporters after meeting with 350 public and commercial vehicle operators in the state yesterday.

He also said the implementation would help ease law enforcement as action could be taken against operators directly for any untoward incidents and offences.

SPAD, he said, would also be standardising the issuance of the licence digitally and co-ordinate with the Road Transport Department and police to ensure a smooth transition towards the new system.

MBPJ taken to task over high rental charges

Kampung Tunku Federal coordinating officer Kelvin Chong has taken the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) to task for charging exorbitant fees for him to rent a multi-purpose hall for public use.

Chong, who is also Selangor MCA Public Complaints Bureau deputy chairman, said MBPJ fixed a fee of RM760 per day to rent the Sungai Way Multipurpose Hall.

"This is not right. My purpose in renting the hall is to distribute forms for the Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia Scheme (BR1M) and not for any political reason. Because the council is imposing such a high fee, I have to occupy the second floor of the Sungai Way wet market, which houses a food court. It is only reasonable that the council set a minimal fee of RM50 to rent the hall for public use," he told reporters yesterday.

Chong said the breakdown for the RM760 fee consisted of rent (RM160), utilities (RM100), deposit (RM200), PA system (RM200) and tables/chairs (RM100).

"If MBPJ wants to charge a fee for private functions such as birthday parties or weddings, that is understandable. But my purpose is for the benefit of the public," added Chong.

The RM500 aid under BR1M is cash assistance for households with a monthly income of RM3,000 and below that was announced in the 2012 Budget presented in Parliament.

It has been announced that application forms for BR1M are available in designated centres nationwide besides being available at the Finance Ministry's website.

Chong also cleared some misunderstandings about the criteria to be eligible for the BR1M scheme.

"Many applicants are confused with the rules to qualify for the scheme.

"For example, 'dependents' (tanggungan) stated in the form does not necessarily apply to children only. It can be your siblings or other relatives. Some of the people are nervous about filling out the forms as there is a clause which says the applicant risks going to jail for three years if the contents in the form are untrue.

"I wanted to rent the multipurpose hall so the people can come to me for assistance," he said, adding that he had received 1,100 BR1M forms within the past five days.

Sebenarnya sukar untuk meyusun ayat yang sesuai apabila menatap gambar ini yang tersebar di internet Jumaat…kecuali GILA.
Seorang lelaki mat saleh manakala seorang lagi lelaki Melayu, lengkap berbaju Melayu.Upacaranya ialah majlis perkahwinan – lelaki dengan lelaki.
"Betul ke?".Dilihat dari segenap sudut,rasanya gambar yang disiar bukan satu rekaan atau lakonan.
Rentetan gambar-gambar cukup meyakinkan.
Sedihnya kenyataan ini adalah realiti ngeri bagi keluarga lelaki Melayu itu yang selama ini mencari 'kehilangannya'.
Situasi itu tentu menyeksakan…lebih dari satu kehilangan.


Ia menyimpang terus dari norma adat,budaya dan agama.
