Lim Guan Eng shows Najib the right stuff

Penang gets its numbers right

Penang has just received another feather on its cap. In its latest report on Penang released this month, the auditor-general lauded the state government for producing sound and healthy financial standing for the year 2009. Calling the state’s financial condition "baik" (good), the report noted that the state authorities had exercised prudent expenditure, which was crowned by a financial statement that was professionally furnished with comprehensive documentation.

"With a good financial standing, the state government has been able to provide its people with services and contributions that are more effective," the auditor-general said in the latest annual report for the state.

The tone of the report must have come as music to the ears of Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, a qualified professional accountant and graduate in Economics from Monash University. Lavishing praises on the state’s finance officer, Datuk Farizan Darus, Lim attributed Penang’s strengthened financial condition to new budgeting procedures the state has adopted. These include the introduction of line-item accounting, outcome-based budgeting, open tender system and risk management.

What does it all mean in hard numbers? According to the state’s balance sheet, the state’s total consolidated funds at the end of 2009 came up to about RM1.1 billion, a 7.4% increase from the RM1.025 billion marked in 2008. What is significant about the accounts is that they reflect a record high in accumulated funds.

Pakatan gets a big boost from Facebook users

Najib's Mega Tower project hands more voters to Pakatan

As the number of Facebook users denouncing Najib's greedy plan to enrich his own people increased to over 100,000, Pakatan Rakyat is quietly planning another triumph as they quietly go about registering all the FB users into voters against BN for the next GE. It has even been described as a "durian runtuh" event for PR as the unexpected surge of support against Najib and BN has risen to unprecedented heights.

Indeed Najib's folly of pretending to invite ideas from the internet users to support his grandiose plan has actually turned against him as more and more Malaysians show their outrage against their very own PM who tried to use them to achieve his own selfish ambitions.

Najib: Anyone can be a Malay in Malaysia (Pakistani, Arabs, Indonesians even) - but no Chinese or Indians please.

Najib: Please die for me if you have to so that I can keep my seat in Putrajaya

Lim Keng Yaik: UMNO GA has shown that BN has lost its original spirit

Is the Proton Inspira a Lancer rip-off?

Proton gets "Inspira"tion from Mitsubishi Lancer after deciding to scrimp RM700 million

BACKBENCHER’S Club deputy chairman Datuk Bung Moktar Radin (for once this guy is talking sense! Does Zizie has something to do with this?) has called for Proton to be wound up claiming that the national car maker had embarrassed the nation by trying to pass off a rebadged Mitsubishi Lancer as the Proton Inspira.(Actually we have been embarrassed with worse from Bung himself!)

Bung Moktar (BN-Kinabatangan) said he could not accept Proton’s excuse that it was too costly to develop its own car to replace the Proton Waja.

“Proton said it would cost RM700mil to produce a new car. If it cannot afford (to design a new model), then just close down.

“Do not embarrass the country. Proton has been doing research and development for years. Don’t tell me that there is no design that can make the people proud,” he said while debating the Budget 2011.

2-faced Najib just not up to mark

A dissapointing budget heralds Najib's political demise

In The United Nations:
"We have inadvertently allowed the ugly voices of the periphery to drown out the many voices of reason and common sense." - Najib Tun Razak

In Malaysia:
“Walau berkecai tulang dan juga badan, walau bercerai jasad dari nyawa. Saudara dan saudari, walau apa pun yang terjadi, Putrajaya mesti kita pertahankan!” - Najib Tun Razak

Besides 2-timing the nation and The United Nations, Najib also proposed a second "Twin Towers" which will cost billions when almost every basic necessity in Malaysia is still so lacking? Our transportation sucks, our education system sucks, FDI is decreasing and our public delivery system cries out for more funds to improve and yet Najib is happy to dump the money on his "pet projects" which no one knows whom will benefit?

Where is the improvement in Malaysia since he started his job as a PM? Even Penang's CM Lim Guan Eng looks so much better by comparison and he (LGE) doesn't even have a cent at his disposal!

More Troubles for Najib as Gerakan sets to explode

Gerakan Adviser Lim Keng Yaik to quit after being bitterly dissapointed with Koh Tsu Koon

Gerakan adviser and former president Tun Dr Lim Keng Yaik will write in and resign as the party adviser on Tuesday.

He said he was disappointed with the way president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon handled the conflicts in the party.

"He is someone who hates getting involved in solving conflicts for fear of offending people," he told reporters at a press conference on Wawasan Open University's inaugural convocation here Monday.

He said Dr Koh's attitude of speaking no evil and burying his head in the sand had brought about many problems in the party.

“I’m very sad as the adviser and the former party president for 27 years.

“Maybe my outburst will shake him up but I don’t think so.

“What is the point of becoming the adviser when the president doesn’t listen to you? So I’m going to resign,” he said.

He also lambasted Dr Koh for choosing not to attend the Penang Gerakan extraordinary general meeting on Oct 10 in favour of attending the opening of MCA annual general meeting on the same day.

Money given by Penang government to the poor ridiculed and returned

Umno Youth said all the money collected from senior citizens, who wanted to return the RM100 they each received under the Senior Citizens Appreciation Programme, would be handed to Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

Its chief Norman Zahalan said more people were expected to return the money.

It was earlier reported that the nine had put the money in a collection box in Kepala Batas for the wing to return it to the state government.

UMNO should stop poisoning the people's minds

"If Umno is so pious and holy, they should revoke all gaming licenses, pull out their investment from liquor producing companies and stop taking illicit payments from underground night clubs and entertainment outlets."

Hypocrites and bigots well and alive within UMNO
