Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has become a big liar

The "responsible" blogs have reported this much earlier, but the mainstream media did not. Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's racist Islam Hadhari administration is indeed going to get a RM200 million corporate executive jet.

The Q319 CJ (Corporate Executive Jet) is estimated to costs about US$50 million

When the whole matter blew up, the
liar Malaysian Prime Minister said that "the jet is for use of the government, not the prime minister (only)". Elaborating, Abdullah said, "The aircraft belongs to Penerbangan Malaysia Berhad (PMB), it was (bought with) their money. We just leased it."

What's the difference between buying the jet directly and leasing it from a government-owned company? Who pays the bills for MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operation) ultimately?

Maybe someone should remind the
sleepy premier that Khazanah Nasional owns Penerbangan Malaysia Berhad (PMB), and Khazanah Nasional is the investment arm of the Malaysian Government, and Abdullah Ahmad Badawi as the Prime Minister and Minister of Finance is also the chairman of Khazanah Nasional.

The executive jet was bought with "their" money? It is the taxpayers' money, and the
mentally-challenged Prime Minister has become a big liar. Is he still a responsible man?

Abdullah Ahmad Badawi must be responsible as well

The sleepy Prime Minister of Malaysia has said that bloggers must be responsible for what they wrote on the Internet.

Do you think that the Malaysian Prime Minister has been responsible enough in:

Campaign against corruption without fear or favour?
Seek a higher level of integrity among elected representatives?
Increase transparency in government?
Holding open forums to get public's feedback?
Prudent in financial management?

Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is indeed very "responsible". He has done this, this and this.

Abdullah's Islam Hadhari government is destroying Malaysia

The mentally-challenged Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is driving the country into a disasterous economic bankcruptcy. In his most embarassing 9th Malaysia Plan (9MP), the country's economy was projected to grow steadily at 6% annually in order for Malaysia to become a fully-developed country by the year 2020.

But under Abdullah's idiotic Islam Hadhari administration, Malaysia only managed to achieve a 5.8 % growth in 2006 and for 2007, the projected growth for the country is only 5.2 %. Two consecutive years of lower-than-projected growth for the nation.

In stark contrast, the KLSE has reached 1139 points and is still going north. The run-up in the KLSE has nothing to do with Malaysia's economic fundamentals anymore. Huge amounts of dollar-based hot money are now flowing into the region, hoping to make gains from the weakening dollar and pushing up stock prices at the same time. When this hot money exits the scene, the KLSE bull will collapse.

Thailand has taken aggressive proactive steps and slammed foreign speculators with a 12-month retention of 30% of all funds invested in stocks, real estate, bonds and foreign currency borrowings.

But in Malaysia, Abdullah's Ministry of Finance and the central bank, Bank Negara Malaysia are conducting meetings with the hot money scam operators who have proposed borrowing USD$50 billion to fund Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's projects, of which some of them are pathetically stupid.

The sleepy Malaysian Prime Minister is destroying the country.

Abdullah Ahmad Badawi gets his priorities wrong

The Malaysian Prime Minister has did it again. Abdullah Ahmad Badawi announced that he had allocated RM20 million to redevelope his alma mater, the Bukit Mertajam High School in Penang. An additional RM3.5 million will be given for the restoration work for the Block C of the school.

Either the Prime Minister of Malaysia is lying or sleeping. His racist Islam Hadhari government allocated only RM2.1 million to 96 Chinese-language schools in the country (which is about RM22,000 for each Chinese-medium school). Few months back, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had asked the Malaysian Chinese to be grateful.

During the tabling of the
embarassing 9th Malaysia Plan (9MP), the premier himself had acknowledged that there are at least 1,598 schools in Malaysia that do not have piped water and 809 schools do not have electricity supply.

Malaysians have constantly been told to
tighten their belts, police stations nationwide have no money for a more comfortable working environment and many schools have no allocation for upkeep, and this 1 school in Penang gets RM23.5 million.

Abdullah's reasoning to give RM23.5 million to his former school was, "we have decided that the school's heritage should be retained". The "
I am in control" Prime Minister should have instead say the same thing when his cruel government decided to demolish Bok House in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

This is the official statement of Bloggers United. This statement is jointly drafted by Susan Loone and Sheih of Kickdefella. All those who believe in justice and right to free speech, please put this up in your blogs.


We, Malaysian bloggers, we, who believe in justice and right to free speech, we, who endorse the Bloggers United movement, unanimously condemn the action taken by media conglomerate NSTP against bloggers Rocky Bru and Jeff Ooi. The action by the newspaper against the duo is an action against all bloggers who believe in their right to free speech, freedom of expression and justice.

The recent event may seem like a grave development in the path of bloggers, but it can never and must never impede or stop us from defending our right to speak, to express, to write and to tell the truth, to be the watchdog, eyes and ears of the people, or simply to share our view, and give fair comment on any subject which involves and affects us as humans, as rightful citizens of this country.

The recent event may very well give the government owned media the opportunity to dictate the so-called "truth” but such actions only prove that bloggers must unite, continue to uphold the right to free speech and freedom of expression, fight for justice, even if it is not our own, be more alert, committed to the cause of free speech, relentless and persistence in the face of such persecution like the one which had befallen on the two of us.

What YOU do to any of US, is what YOU do to ALL.

As responsible bloggers, we demand and claim our space on the blogosphere for free and fair comment, where important national issues and prominent personalities are discussed.

Although it may seem as if the NSTP defamation suits will have a chilling effect on freedom of bloggers, as litigation can be expensive and may jeorpadise a blogger’s economic position, we will not be cowed or silenced by those who have no regard for free speech.

If you find our post offensive, you may refute us with correct facts and figures and fair comment, in the spirit of free speech.

The first two cases will have grave impact not only on the Internet, but Malaysia as a whole as the country celebrates Visit Malaysia Year (VMY2007). The healthy, mature and democratic growth for free speech and expression in our midst is at stake. The reputation of the nation as it strives to promote our multimedia supercorridor and love for IT will be a national joke for all the world to feast on.

We demand for a level playing field in all action meted out to bloggers and in particular in the defamation proceedings particularly in terms of financial resources and capabilities, and secondly, that the legal rights of bloggers et al are properly protected in keeping with the imperatives of an information society and knowledge economy which Malaysia aspires to become.

Will Malaysians vote for Abdullah again?

Over 80,000 people from various parts of Malaysia were evacuated when the country was hit by heavy monsoon rains. Many flood victims complained that the rescue efforts were slow and some were even forced to pay in order to be rescued.

Malaysian leaders went into hiding when the people were in the deepest end of water

During these desperate hours, the sleepy Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi went for holidays in Australia. Upon returning from his "successful working trip" to Venezuela, the liar premier took an executive jet (funded by the taxpayers' money, of course) to Perth. It was reported that in Perth, Abdullah opened a nasi kandar restaurant which is co-owned by his brother.

When pressed by the reporters for his comment about this, the Prime Minister said, "
I have always monitor the flood situation even from afar". Indeed, Abdullah and his "I am in control" mode again. And the obvious absences of other ministers and government leaders from the affected states add insults to the injuries of the flood victims. Screenshots listed down these people:

- Pagoh MP and Agriculture Minister Muhyiddin Yassin (only showed up days after floods hit).
- Kota Tinggi MP and Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar (was not seen at all during the floods).

- Tanjung Piai MP and Housing Minister (and doggie MCA President) Ong Ka Ting (was on holidays overseas and released press statements via local aides).
- Sembrong MP and Education Minister Hishammuddin Hussein
- Pasir Gudang MP and Minister Khaled Nordin
- Labis MP and Health Minister Chua Soi Lek
- Penggerang MP and Sports Minister Azalina Othman Said

How about the state exco members and state assemblymen? Ironically, about 40 members of the Kluang Municipal Council in Johor went for a trip in Shanghai, China when floods hit the town.

Will fellow Malaysians be so stupid to vote for this racist Islam Hadhari government again in the next general election?

Toll protest, Abdullah blames civil servants, Mahathir blames his ministers

The huge public demonstration to protest against Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's cruel highway toll increments took place last weekend in Petaling Jaya. But the mainstream media in the country dared not publish a single photo of the demonstration as they have been "advised" by someone working at the 4th floor of the Prime Minister's office in Putrajaya.

Public protests against Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's cruel administration

Meanwhile, the sleepy premier is dismayed that while his Islam Hadhari policies have been described as "first class", their implementation still leaves much to be desired because of the poor public delivery system. The number 1 civil servant in the country said, "if everything seems to be all right and yet on the ground there is not enough effort to implement the policies, then the perception is that there might be corruption involved".

And today, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) has said that "there is a lack of transparency in deciding the airport charges in Malaysia". It seems the "perception" that the sleepy Abdullah is talking about is not merely a perception after all.

At the same time, former Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir Mohamad blamed his ministers for the highway toll issue and called for the highway concession agreements to be reviewed and renegotiated. He said, "We did not have very much experience. We didn’t know about growth and reaction from people. Civil servants don’t think of reaction as much as politicians. They think they see a reasonable agreement and they send it to the cabinet and the cabinet okays it. And now we are stuck".

Malaysian Government caught with pants down again

The opposition parties and the non-governmental organisations have exposed the "lies" of the Malaysian Government headed by sleepy Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

LIE 1: Whenever the Malaysian public protested against the highway tolls increments, the government said that it would "negotiate with
the highway concessionaire to reduce the toll rates ".
TRUTH 1: The government had actually decided on the people's behalf (without their knowledge, of course) by fixing and agreeing to the toll rates for the entire highway concession period. There is NO such "negotiation" with the highway concessionaire at all.

The toll rates as agreed by the Malaysian Government "on behalf" of the Malaysian public

LIE 2: Malaysian Works Minister Samy Vellu said that the Opposition Leader Lim Kit Siang was allowed to read through the highway concession agreements for 9 hours without finding any flaws.
TRUTH 2: Samy offered the opposition leader a glance at the tender documents (after strong objections in the Parliament) to United Engineers Malaysia (UEM) to construct the North-South Expressway. But the actual concession agreement was awarded to UEM on 18 March 1988 and he NEVER GOT to see it, simply because he was detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) at that time.

The contractual agreement between the Malaysian government and LITRAK (the highway concessionaire of the Damansara-Puchong Highway)

LIE 3: The government is telling the people that it needs to compensate LITRAK [the highway concessionaire of the Damansara-Puchong Highway (LDP)] in order to help lessen road users' burden. Millions of ringgit were compensated to LITRAK by using the taxpayer's money.
TRUTH 3: The toll charges, the compensation to the highway concessionaires and the concessionaire periods DO NOT reflect the actual costs of building the highways. For example, LITRAK had announced in their annual reports that the company has regained the construction costs of LDP. LITRAK's profits: RM56 million (2005) and RM80 million (2006).

The formula to compensate the highway concessionaire if the government reduces the toll

The Malaysian Government is caught with its pants down again. Bumiputera Malaysia would like to thank the people who took the risk of getting detained under the Official Secrets Act (OSA) by exposing the details of the highway concessionaire agreement.

A mere PR exercise for Abdullah and his team?

It could be a biased opinion, but what else that could explained Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's 1-day visit to the flooded districts in Johor?

By the time the mainstream media front-paged Abdullah's visit, the sleepy premier was already holidaying in Perth, Australia. More importantly, his UMNO leaders from the affected state of Johor were nowhere to be found in the country as well. It did not matter if over 80,000 people were displaced or a dozen victims died in the floods, Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar and others like Khaled Nordin were obviously missing.

Thus, was Abdullah's single-day visit to Johor a mere PR exercise for his cruel government?
