Khalid, Just Leave! - It's Not Guthrie, It's Selangor!

The Selangor Mentri Besar impasse is unnecessarily being prolonged.

And the man at the center of all the intransigence is the MB himself.

Khalid probably still thinks that being the head of the State Executive is the self same as being the CEO of Guthrie.

No, by a long stretch of the imagination.

The MB post is a political one, not a business appointment.

When it came to politics, even the Macbeth witches knew better than to mix the two. That would be a toxic brew too much even for them to handle.

No wiser person there should be than for one to mistake politics for business or, worse still, to mix them up.

If Khalid has any sense left, he should just pack up pronto and leave when the party that had nominated him for the post now wants him out.

Or, if he had any decency left, not trying to flog his credentials to third parties to gain their sympathy.

It just makes one wonder why Khalid wants so desperately to cling on to the post when his own party wants him out.

Especially after the case with the bank that had sued him for a multi-miliion Ringgit loan.

Is he trying to cling on to power to further save his own skin?

Anyway one looks at the whole fiasco, Khalid looks pathetic.

And that is not good for an MB. Or the confidence of Selangor folks.

dUMNo might want to sing his praises. That is another matter.

You and I knew better. The opportunistic sharks circling the waters for the kill.

Khalid's hanger-ons might want to flog the MB's record of chalking up a 3 billion Ringgit surplus for the state as credential to retain him in the post.

But what has he done with the surplus? The first thing he did was to reward himself and his exco and the state assemblymen with indecent increases in their allowances.

That's a brilliant achievement for the state of course!

The second great accomplishment?

To buy over said to be bankrupt or near bankrupt debt ridden entities so as to take over the water assets and management of the state water resources?

After that, what do you have?

Such said to be debt ridden and troubled entities should not even be paid a cent of the state's monies. In fact, these non or under performing creatures should pay the state for taking over their troubles, don't you think?

Khalid's 3 billion Ringgit surplus for the state will go down in history as an achievement of sorts, but not one Selangor folks will applaud for long.

Meanwhile, there is the matter of your party wanting you out, Khalid!

Pronto or bravado?

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...
