Putrajaya 4th-storey boys rushed in Penang – BN panics at wind of change in polls

Marking growing panic in the Barisan Nasional at the strong winds of change rising up in the land, highlighted by last night’s 60,000-strong DAP ceramah crowd at Han Chiang Chinese School grounds in Penang which collected over RM130,000 in public donations, the Putrajaya Fourth-Storey Boys have rushed up to Penang with their final bag of dirty tricks to check, counter and reverse the tide of change embracing Penang and the whole nation in the 12th general election.

The twin DAP objectives in the March 8, 2008 general election – to deny Barisan Nasional two-thirds majority in Parliament and the Penang State Assembly – seem to be increasingly feasible and within reach, and this is causing panic in Barisan Nasional circles.

Can the Putrajaya 4th-Storey Boys block and reverse the rising wind of change in Penang and Malaysia?

One brain-child of the Putrajaya 4th-storey Boys is the unprecedented live telecast of the Prime Minister to the nation as the final election campaign message of the Barisan chairman, which will be telecast live to the nation over the television channels.

This will be in the form of an interview with the Prime Minister by The Star Group Editor Datuk Wong Chun Wai and TV3’s Fuad Abdul Rahman in the Bual Pilihanraya programme at 9 pm.

This final election campaign message, to be telecast live over the television channels, will also be the final election abuse by Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who is completely indifferent to ethics, morality and integrity of government leaders, especially during the period of the election campaign after dissolution of Parliament until the election of a new Parliament and government, when he is only caretaker Prime Minister and all Ministers mere caretaker Ministers.

A caretaker Prime Minister has no business to give his final election campaign message as Barisan Chairman unless similar live-telecast time is offered to leaders of political parties in the Opposition to similarly deliver their “final election campaign” messages.

Abdullah has started the 12th general election with a lie – when he solemnly and publicly declared that Parliament will not be dissolved during the Chinese New Year, only to break the solemn pledge less than 24 hours later.

The 12th general election campaign is ending with a blatant affront to the National Integrity Plan launched by Abdullah in May 2004, where a caretaker PM and Barisan Chairman is allowed to give eve-of-polling election message telecast over television channels but denied to the Opposition leaders.

With such contempt to ethics, integrity and morality – with caretaker Deputy Prime Minister dragooning a government Fokker executive jet for his campaign purposes to support BN candidates up and down the country, which is a gross and blatant abuse of power by a caretaker government – who can ever trust Abdullah in his talk about fighting corruption and upholding integrity in public life.

What is the next trick of Putrajaya 4th-Storey in their unholy “mission”:to block and break the wind of change blowing strong and hard in Penang and Malaysia?

    Say no to the den of thieves. Vote the Opposition.

    “I am a Malay but I fully support barisan alternative….” somaris

    The way you express yourself i.e. linking your ethnicity to your political affiliations is worrisome because it reinforces the view of many that the role of race in politics is never going to go away any time soon.

    What we want is true democracy. I don’t care whether the candidate is Malay, Chinese, Indian, Sikh or lain-lain, I will always vote against those who incite race politics.

    Besides DAP (of course,) for me, if UMNO-PKR/PRM/PAS….. I will always vote Opposition. Just because Hishamuddin has kissed his beloved Keris, Khairy and his antics, Zakaria Deros – worst of all is Pemuda UMNO – I want to see them down & out!!!

    After the “performance” demonstrated by Koh Tsu Khoon in bringing 3.5 billion investment by paying out 10 billion, will the people of Penang still support him or BN? This is outright betrayal of the trust vested in him by the people of Penang. And he had the guts to tell the people that the 3.5 billion investment had generated employment opportunities for the people of Penang. I think the people of Penang would be happier if he had distributed the 6.5 billion to them!!!!!!

    Why crime is so high in msia? Not becos of low manpower, low budget or low morale but corruption (think of getting rich & corrupted), discrimination, abuse of power, lopsided racial profile/composition, greediness, erosion of people’s trust, laziness, lack of initiatives to improve, backward system of management and outdated methods of solving crimes. So by increasing more manpower, the situation get worse not better. This apply to Umno also! So my advice, vote wisely tomorrow.

    BN can spend RM500k per day of our money to fund their dirty and immoral campaign, but it is too late. My entire family, relatives, and friends will be voting for PKR, DAP or PAS tomorrow. I feel proud to be a Malaysian when I see all the major races and religious group working together in unity. It is a feeling that I have missed for a very long time. May God Bless our country with peace, justice, and prosperity. May God Bless our country with good leaders that will bring back the shine of Malaysia!

    UMNO is contesting in 117 seat. Let PKR/PAS/PRM secure at least 50 seats from them. DAP can secure at least 25 of the 48 seats, Sabah/Sarawak get another few & BINGO – deny BN 2/3 !!!

    Barck Obama was never a Muslim.

    You may want to read his book, “Dreams from My Father”. He was born to a white American woman from Kansas. He never knew his father, an African Muslim from Kenya, and who had earlier come to the U.S. to study at Harvard and who chose to return to his country, Kenya because he wanted to serve his people. Barack never met his father since he was two years old and only returned to Kenya after his father died in a motor accident. By then he had graduated from Harvard Law School and was doing community work in the slums of Chicago when he could have a cushy job at one of the top law firms in the country.

    His mother remarried and to an Indonesian graduate student she met at the University of Hawaii. He was Muslim. He followed his mother to Jakarta but returned not long after and was looked after by his maternal grandparents.

    Barack is as much a Muslim as you are!

    Today KTK compared himself to Lim Chong Eu when he bult the Penang Bridge. He foregot to mention that Lim Chong Eu was also wrong about the bridge for quite a number of years. The Penang bridge today is a traffic nightmare. If Lim Ching Eu had delayed building the bridge and built a proper one with three lanes and proper public transport say 5-10 years later we would not be wasting our money building a 11RM/toll Penang second bridge.

    The truth is original Penang Bridge was not a disaster but not a good decision. The second Penang bridge at RM11/trip will be a disaster because if they try to raise the toll to existing bridge to RM9.40 and THEN Extend the concession of the old bridge, it will see more than 60,000 people at CM office. If they end the concession the second bridge will be a financial disaster.

    Lim Chong Eu got lucky, KTK is just stupid to think he got the same luck.

    “….the Putrajaya Fourth-Storey Boys have rushed up to Penang with their final bag of dirty tricks to check, counter and reverse the tide of change embracing Penang …”

    Yep, and with their bagful of money to bribe voters. A novice BN helper was shocked when he was handed a bag full of money when he accompanied a BN candidate campaigning. His instructions were simple. Distribute them when the Ketua Kampung or residents’ head asked for donations for “football boots and jerseys” for their kampung teams. Why do you think UMNO and BN had to manipulate fat Govt. contracts for their companies?

    Integrity for the top BN leaders? The word does not exist in their dictionaries. In their eyes, what belongs to the nation is theirs for the taking. If you cannot grab under legal pretences, then under table or commissions pun jadi. If this fails, also can use C4 to shut up any leaks. In addition, the judiciary also can be bought for a few mobile phones and soup and holiday trips abroad. And a very highly cooperative Election Commission that makes last minute changes is also very useful.

    After casting his vote on Saturday, the leader of the main opposition Islamist party, Nik Aziz Nik Mat, said his supporters had found a member of the prime minister’s main ruling party in possession of 28 identity cards for use in electoral fraud.

    Nik Aziz’s Parti Islam se-Malaysia (PAS) controls northeast Kelantan state, the only opposition-held state, and faces a major campaign by Barisan to win it back after 18 years of PAS rule.

    “They appear to be in a state of panic,” the elderly cleric, wearing cream-colored robes and a white turban, told reporters after voting at a school fringed by coconut and banana trees in Kota Bahru, the Kelantan capital.

    “If we lose because the people really don’t want us, then it’s ok, but if we lose because of foul means, then I will do something,” he warned.

    (i)preparations for the next election should start the first day of a new term not at teh 11th hour (talking about vision, planning and organisation)
    (ii)you know you doný have the financial muslce to match the incumbent’s, donations should continue and not start at the 11th hour
    (iii)gather a pool of people intellectuals (I am sure many would love to chip in) to counter the the floor boys- face it this is what you are lacking

    Uncle Lim stop being that “ROLLED UP”sleeve opposition member with the “Bs” and courage to stand up for your ideals, values and principles and is willing go to jail for that belief and strife.

    If you and the opposition endeavour to be the next alternative government- you got to be better than the incumbent before you are able to rule.

    You already know the incumbent’s weakness and you already know the peoples’ wishes. So get on with improving on your weaknesses for the next election. This election is just the beginning of a change and by itself is not the end of the change

    The work towards attaining this edge should start now and not at the 11th each election………………………….

    I feel the sooner PakLah stepdown as PM, the better it would be for the nation. My wife, who is not politically informed, could see that Pak Lah is a jet setting pM, always on overseas trip. I was surprised that she could say that Pak Lah runs the country on auto pilot. Hey, Pak Lah, my ill-informed wife, could pass such judgement on you. It must be very terrible on you!!!

    Your last minute appeal just went down the drain!!!!
    All your slogans are nothing but EMPTY!!!!

    Problem with pak lah stepping down is that najis & khinzir will bankrupt the country

    “What is the next trick of Putrajaya 4th-Storey in their unholy “mission”:to block and break the wind of change blowing strong and hard in Penang and Malaysia?”

    I think to much credits has been given to the 4th floor boys, if those 4th floor boys are really made of something, there will be no wind of change in the first place. What is the next trick? escape!

    You’re barking up the wrong tree here! Read limkamput’s posting and then read mine.

    limkamput (or is it Lebai Kamal bin Put??)

    You conveniently missed the point I was making. So here it is again:


    “And the smart Malay is you???

    “Is that why you feel you must hide your real identity under your handle??”


    limkamput, it is no answer to be calling somebody a “stupid Chinese/Indian” – the way you did here! I never called you stupid!

    I can see pak lah shitting bricks now!

    “The Cambridge Trusts provides funding for deserving students who can’t afford the cost of studying in Cambridge. Your insinuation that “somaris” is dependent on the NEP would’ve been more relevant if he/she was in some other institution.”

    Maybe so but reading his English, I doubt it very much! I am not making racist comment. That was a legitimate question since he linked his ethnicity to the issue. If you cannot but be a racist the moment you ask about issues involving race, then I suppose to you everyone is a racist and I am happy to be one.

    I feel I have to ask somaris how he felt being a beneficiary of BN’s New Economic Policy and since it was he who linked his race to the issue. That is a legitimate question prompted by his statement – and for your convenience I re-post what I wrote earlier.

    (To Somaris) “May I ask how you feel about the NEP? Do you think without the NEP you’d be in Cambridge, U.K. today?”

    If you have no stomach for direct questions, then perhaps you should not be here. Limkamput would be the first to say that to you, as he said so many times to everybody here! Except of course when he’s on the receiving end!

    On the elections, poster chuchueey (on the “TV address” thread) expresses the kind of emotions many voters feel. The grassroots have been mobilized and energized and no one should be surprised that the opposition is making inroads in ways it never did in the last fifty years! Malaysians are never more united in purpose!

    Penang and Trengganu and Kelantan are states falling to the Opposition – Penang by the smallest of margins.

    It is fine if we want to comment on the implementation of NEP. But to direct it to a specific individual is not fair unless you know his/her exact circumstances. In the first place, you know nothing about him. May be he is not even a recipient of any assistance from the Government of Malaysia. Second, he may be good enough in his/her own right to obtain the scholarship from the Government or other organisations. Third, he may just be in Cambridge (the town) but not actually studying in Cambridge University. Unless we know his/her exact situation, it is better not to condemn people like that. Thinking process must be right. You are wrong; I don’t simply condemn people. Those got condemned usually are the deserving ones.

    Which is why the lady asked! Stupid!

  79. #80 by kickbutt on Sunday, 9 March 2008 - 1:18 am

    Why don’t you respond to her posting – instead of trying to be clever by half??

    The lady asked for the second time:

    “And the smart Malay is you???

    “Is that why you feel you must hide your real identity under your handle??”

    When everybody is interested in the elections, all you have to think about is your huge ego!

  80. #81 by limkamput on Sunday, 9 March 2008 - 2:38 pm

    kickbutt, and for the second time I am telling you: does it matter I am a smart Malay or an average/stupid Chinese. I am not like you. Limkamput is my only ID.

    No, I have no ego. If fact, I even told you and ladygorilla earlier, “let’s don’t quarrel, we go voting and you take care” or something like that.

    The election was over; I guess now the oppositions have to become governments in some states. The oppositions have a daunting task to put their act together, knowing their limited capabilities and possible infighting because I think the voters give them (the oppositions) more than they can chew. Can you see the possible problems coming?

    I am in no mood to quarrel and argue with you endlessly anymore. Tired, you know, so just let it be. Ok, you are right. I am rude, obnoxious, insensitive and write poor English. You are the best, the smartest, the most discerning, the most constructive, the most polite, and the most learned. In Malay, we must address you Yang Arif, Yang Maha Besar, Yang Berbahagia, and if you got elected yesterday, Yang Berhormat. So please I beg you, just let me go. Besides, I may not come here as often as before. Election is over, it is back to reality. I have to earn a living now. Can’t depend on savings alone, given the high inflation and lackadaisical performance of my investment. On Monday, the stock market will probably suffer another big drop because the government, both at federal and in some states are in limbo. So have sympathy on me, ok. I know right in your heart you are a decent person. I capitulate. You win big.

    Anyone interested in bringing Penang back as a Free Port?
