The dUMNo Do-Gooders Should Focus On Their Jobs Instead!

The dUMNo do-gooders should focus on doing their jobs - if they have any worth saying in the first place, that is.

Not waste everyone's time trying to pin down a chief minister for purchasing a bungalow allegedly below market value - a chief minister who has been working hard for the betterment of his state unlike the do-gooders.

It is not a crime to buy a property below market value if the seller is willing to sell it at that - on a willing buyer-seller basis.

If there had been any hanky panky involved, let the MACC investigate. It should be a simple matter for them to find out the truth.

Just get to the vendor and check if there had been any undue influence or inducement or promise of any kind in the transaction. Do what is necessary to establish the truth of the matter.

After all, the vendor had already sworn an SD to explain why she had agreed to sell at below market value. Is it so difficult a thing to investigate? Don't tell Bolehlanders that it would take months or years, with all the resources at MACC's disposal, just to find out the truth?

The do-gooders should focus on the more important issues afflicting Bolehland - a moribund economy going nowhere, rising costs of living exacerbated by the goods and service tax and the falling value of the ringgit. The rakyat's suffering in other words.

Increasing racial and religious bigotry and intolerance that has many Bolehlanders worried except, it seems, to the trouble makers and the government of the day.

An administration that has lost its direction, more concerned about its own survival than the nation's fate.

A nation said to have become one of the most corrupt in the world and an administration that talks a lot but does little to to check corruption at the highest level.

It would be better if the do-gooders tell their boss to come clean on 1MDB instead.

Why the fund was said to have incurred 42 billion ringgit in debt in just a few short years and unable to service the loans?

What had happened to the billions raised supposedly to fund it?

What had the investments been, other than the purchase of the independent power producers at inflated costs which it was forced to get rid of in the end to a mainland Chinese firm at a discount?

Who have really benefitted from 1MDB? And who really have to bear the loss?

Where did the 2.6 billion ringgit found in the Pm's personal accounts come from?

What really has happened to the money? If the sum was really a donation, then who was or were the donor or donors? It is not enough merely to allude to a Saudi royalty when even the Saudi government themselves were unable to confirm the story.

2.6 billion ringgit is a humongous sum of money, by anyone's standard, for any donation, let alone for a personal one!

Or say that the bulk had been returned. It should be easy to show proof then, of when, how and to whom the bulk of the 'donation' was said to have been returned, to dispel any lingering doubt, shouldn't it?

And what about the tens of millions from SRC  also said to have been found in the Pm's personal accounts, et al?

A thousand and more important things than the chief minister's purchase of a modest bungalow at a price that really isn't so far off its value, anyway. When even the question of any impropriety in the purchase is a doubtful one.

Investigate the purchase by all means, but don't waste everyone time's focusing on this matter when there are larger concerns that ought to receive greater attention and consideration.

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...
