MCA and BN still struggling to serve the nation

MCA's new president struggles with old unresolved issues:

MCA president and minister wants PKFZ to reveal audit report on RM4.6b fiasco but PKFZ doesn't want to

PSD will still not give scholarships to those deserving

Najib's Ministry continues to sow seeds of discontent among the youth:

1Malaysia Najib's officers continue to preach racial hatred among youths

JR: ...and they wonder why everyone is rejecting BN?

Shahrizat: Don't say BN not ready to face by-elections, say we boycott

PAS: BN should avoid all by-elections for the good of the nation

"Barisan will surely lose. So it might as well not bother to contest"

JR: BN should avoid more elections to "save cost" or AND to "save face"?

A black day for all Malaysians, Najib

Ride and Surf on Penang Buses

Penang buses (some, not all) equipped with WiFi capability

Rapid Penang is believed to be the first bus company in the country to roll out a high-speed WiFi service which will be useful to passengers, especially during a traffic congestion.

Its chief executive officer Azhar Ahmad launched the free service in two buses here yesterday for a trial period of three months to gauge the public’s response.

“The service is not password protected. Now, our passengers can surf the Net, check e-mail, Facebook or watch videos on YouTube with their laptops or handphones while on board.

“A lot of people think that public transport is only for the lower income group, but we’re offering services that private car owners don’t have – hands-free and Internet access at 3.5G speeds to entertain you in traffic jams,” he said while taking press members on a bus ride around town to try out the new service.

A Win For The Malaysian People (and of course the citizens of Perak)

Najib makes a mockery off the Perak State Assembly, gets a slap in the face...

“This is a great day for the rakyat (people) because the Law and the Constitution are the true winners,” - Nizar.

The High Court today declared Datuk Nizar Jamaluddin as the legitimate Menteri Besar of Perak and his bid to regain office will come sooner than expected after the same court denied the application of rival MB, Datuk Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir, for a apply for a stay pending an appeal.

In his ruling, Justice Abdul Aziz Abd Rahim stated that a new Mentri Besar could not be appointed as the office had not been vacated. A mentri besar can only be dismissed by a vote of no confidence, one in which Aziz noted that the Perak Legislative did not carry out.

Court said the fatal Barisan Nasional mistake was despite the majority of 31 against 28, the coalition failed to take a no-confidence vote against Nizar in the state assembly.

The Judge said once appointed as chief executive of the state, the Menteri Besar is only answerable to the state assembly.

JR: Er... so who gets the Toyotas now? On a more serious note it does look like Pakatan can intepret the law much better than BN!

Bloggers take on this issue:
