Barisan Leaders And Their Drivel!


I can understand leaders playing politics.

But I am sick of leaders talking inanities and expecting the people
to take them as Solomonic wisdom and the gospel truth.

Malaysian leaders including Pm Najib himself, have so often tried
to convince the rakyat to vote for them by saying that the opposition
have no experience governing the country before and therefore
they do not know how to do so and cannot and must never be trusted
to take over the Federal administration.

The obvious implication is that Malaysians must always continue to
give their mandate to the ruling Barisan coalition.

Now, if we take their argument to the logical end, we might as well
do away with the farce of holding elections every five years or so, because
since independence some 54 years ago, Barisan has been the only coalition
to govern the country.

We might as well amend the Malaysian constitution to state that by virtue
of Barisan's long experience in running the country, it is the only party
perpetually entitled to form the government of the day.

This will finally bring to fruition Najib's boast that he he will make Malaysia the
world's best democracy!

Yes, indeed!

What a joke!

NOTE: Just look at the opposition administered states of Penang and Selangor. The opposition did not have any experience of running the states until they managed at the last state elections in 2008 to wrest them from the Barisan coalition. Now both Penang and Selangor are doing very well not only economically but also in many other aspects, compared to 54 years of Barisan's unbroken rule. Both of the states' revenues have shot up and they have been able to attract high levels of FDIs (Foreign Direct Investments) every year since taking over the administration of the states from Barisan. Life for both Penangites and Selangorians has improved in many ways. Penang and Selangor are the only two Malaysian states to have consistently received praise from the Auditpr-General himself, as being the best administered states in Malaysia compared to Barisan administered states. That alone should give the lie to Barisan's claim that without experience, the opposition can't govern.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
