Don’t be deceived, Malaysians

JULY 17 — Get ready for the wayang kulit to begin. Elections will be held after Hari Raya, probably in September. And how do I know?

Do I have a crystal ball? Definitely not but Najib Razak is doing what Abdullah Ahmad Badawi did when he also needed a mandate from the voters.

1) Get the authorities to charge a so-called big fish with corruption to show the “government’s resolve” in fighting corruption. Abdullah picked Eric Chia, Kasitah Gaddam, Ramli Yusof and a couple of others. Hey, did anyone remember that everyone was cleared!

Now we are told that ex-Sime Darby CEO is going to be charged with CBT. This case is going to be milked by Najib administration and the MACC, both bodies with little credibility. Will anyone remember if and when Zubir Murshid is acquitted, the same way that Ramli Yusof was cleared?

2) The Klang Valley water rationing. This must be the only country in the world where some private sector company can decide it wants to ration water and where the corrupt and imbecile mainstream media goes on a rampage again the state government which will not give in to blackmail and threats.

People of Klang Valley get ready: the Umno operatives and the fat cats who want the state government to pay RM8 billion for water assets want to cut our water supply and make us so angry that we will vote Pakatan Rakyat out of Selangor.

This is not about water rationing, this is water terrorism. And should we ever bow down to any form of terrorism?

3) The BN government wants a feel-good factor before the election. So this year’s National Day is meant to give us a warm and fuzzy feeling about the country and its leaders.

National Day has been hijacked and the BN’s election theme is the same as the National Day theme. Some 2,000 Malaysians from overseas are supposed to be flown back to say how wonderful the country is.

Mind you, many of them have left the country. But the Najib government needs any sort of endorsement. Expect also another RM500.

4) The number of Najib’s posters around town and on trains is probably rivalled in Stalin’s Russia or in Hitler’s Germany.

The subtle message is that Malaysians may not be able to trust Umno or BN but we should trust Najib.

Malaysians, only we should decide our fate. Let’s not fall victim to window dressing in any form.

    Now, UMNO/BN is even crass enough to blame the opposition for all the bad that they have done and accumulated over their long misrule.
    This include hill-side development and lack of housing for which they are famous.
    This, in spite of the fact that such issues as well as plenty of others have been the hall mark of the federal government.
    Their graft, mismanagement and dereliction of duty is legend.
    So, this is the way they intend to take back Penang, Selangor and other states that had fallen to the opposition?
    This is the only country in the whole universe where the depravity of the ruling coalition has sunk to such low depths that they think that since they were given the mandate, this mandate also comes with the caveat that they can scam, steal and create scandals to their hearts’ content?
    They are traitors to all Malaysians and to the country as well.
    Time to boot them out!
    And claim back what is rightfully ours.
    Being scammed and scandalised for fifty-five years is a very, very long time indeed!!!

    where do you get 2000 overseas Malaysian to come back and praise the Malaysian system? Where??
    Maybe fly 2000 UMNO members overseas and then bring them back.

    When PR is in Putrajaya, one of its priority task should be to nullify all lopsided deals made by UMNO/BN for the benefit of its cronies.
    There is no need to honour such deals as they are nothing but scams.
    Both the giver and receiver of such deals must reimburse the Malaysian public for any benefits accrued from the deals.
    The perpetrators must also be penalised for their acts to scam the Malaysian public.

    ///Elections will be held after Hari Raya, probably in September.///

    Najib said he will table the National Budget for 2013 on behalf of the Federal Government on 28 September 2012. So elections may well be held in October 2012.

    If Najib does not deceive and lie how do you expect him to get the votes he needs?

    He is doing much more than that.
    He is constantly on the road to give good news…to play Santa Clause…and latest a string of events to tell young Malaysians be proud of the country.
    He speaks to majority Muslims.
    MCA and MIC puppets speak at Petaling Street and Little India.
    Rural areas need not much speaking…just give money.
    Urban area Malaysians not so easy to be fooled.
    So work harder.
    These are like salesmen trying to fool customers with useless products.
    Najib and Mahathir believe second born a sucker….which is quite true….but they need the suckers to grow up.
    Time is against them.

    Other reasons why umno must be ABU-ed. Man City is the league champ in the just completed league season. This is one reason. I saw a cat jump over the fence yesterday. This is another good reason. The green traffic light turned red too soon this morning. This too is a reason. In fact, any reason will do. It does not matter. It does not matter because umno is just far toooo bad. Toooo terrible. Much toooo lousy and corrupt and arrogant and incompetent and murderous that we need not justify our wish to hv it ABU-ed.

    For me, I want umno ABU-ed because I had wanton mee this morning.
