Permatang Pauh

Looks like the media run by BN cronies are at it again. They are trying to fool the people of Permatang Pauh with the word 'pembangunan'. Hmm... will this 'pembangunan' necessarily be beneficial for the people there? I say not at all. Their tactics of exposing disgruntled citizens about dirty water supply for the last 35 years are actually exposing their own weaknesses of the government. What has the government actually did in the last 35 years over that issue of dirty water supply?

Even if the Opposition rules Permatang Pauh, does the wakil rakyat have enough personal funds to pay the Jabatan Bekalan Air for clean water? Of course, one cannot expect the wakil rakyat to withdraw his/her own money to get clean water supply for the people. That's why the funds are supposed to come from the federal government. But what action has the BN government take to fix this so-called problem in Permatang Pauh? I would say little, but I can bravely say nothing at all.

Look, compare the budget of Pakatan Rakyat to the BN government. Pakatan Rakyat has only a few billion ringgit to run on as they are ruling 5 states (not including Federal Territory) compared to the BN government's hundreds of billions of ringgit to rule Perlis, Pahang, Terengganu, Johor, Malacca, Negeri Sembilan, Sabah and Sarawak. And the BN cronies' media already trying to make a bad name out of Pakatan Rakyat, even though they only ruled for 5 months. Isn't this an unfair assessment of the Pakatan Rakyat government ruling the 5 states? The jury is still out, so... I think the PR has so far done a good job of ruling the 5 states, even on a very tight budget, compared to the wasteful BN government whose funds could have been allocated better for the people.

The RMK9 as you know has an initial cost of RM200 billion. Then, boom! They put in an additional RM30 billion into the project. Just for one simple reason, oil prices. Being a net oil exporter, it sounds a bit ridiculous. I wonder why they have to pay the contractors an extra RM30 billion for this project? Rising costs? Maybe, but supposed it's not that much. What if the whole project is actually under the initial costs? Wow, that's a steamy question to answer. I'll leave it to all of you to answer, especially the government. LOL!

And yeah, as you all know, Saiful swore on the Quran. And that's already weird. He's the accuser in this case and yet, he swore on the Quran first instead of the accused. And during the swearing, Saiful asked God to 'laknat' himself and his family. That's weird too. Tersasul ke? What if God is trying to show us something? Trying to show us the real truth in this sodomy case? This sign of Saiful tersasul-ing during the swearing of the Quran is one of them. However, I would let time to decide on this issue. Let God do the work.

Holidays have started and I'm already undergoing a studying regime to catchup with time. I just haven't started on Economics and English yet. I want to continue tonight. It's 10.00 'o' clock and time doesn't wait for me. So, happy holiday guys. Don't forget August 26. Everything will unfold in time. Ciao!
