CONSUMERIST: The ‘I-CITY’ A BOOM OR A SCAM?

CONSUMERIST: The ‘I-CITY’ A BOOM OR A SCAM?

We have received serious questions on many alleged irregularities pertaining to the “MSC Status’ and alienation or purchase of land at subsidized prices where eventually MSC companies and incubator companies are ‘pressured’ to locate in?

We are told that the modus operanti is the same be it at Cyberjaya, Technology Park Malaysia, Serdang, Shah Alam I-City and now, South Bangsar and Malaysian voters and consumers are asking why is prime land been bought at subsidized rates and developed then charged to third parties at premium rates even a shocking RM7.00 per sq feet or a forced 4000 sq.feet for a MSC incubator company?

The modus operanti is the same all over?

This with a cost in professional fees, of high rentals with a tied in tenancy for two years with tied in costs of minimum RM900.00 for telephone whether one uses the line or not and other pressures extended!

Is this not an abuse?

Who is making the monies?

Is a tied in clause which is predatory legal?

How will a incubator company to survive and who is really making the money directly, indirectly or through proxies?

We have companies who have been victims of fraud who are in a binding situation today and this alleged abuse must be investigated and addressed in the public interest!

Can someone please answer these pertinent questions so that the Malaysian voters and consumers know the truth about how public monies are used, whether yet again subsidies are abused for politically linked individuals, their crony companies, outsourced management outlets and so forth?

Perhaps, our MPs can now look into these as well and seek answers in the August house!

CONSUMERIST: UN ELECTION MONITORS FOR MALAYSIA’S GE13?

Dato Jacob George

‘In view of the manner the lead up to GE13 is shaping up with childish name calling and other vulgarities, with the allegations of corruption, attacks and verbal bashing of minorities and their faith, vote buying, foreigners given documents to vote and other incredible claims one cannot but ask whether the Malaysian Civil Society will urge international monitors either from the EU or the UN to monitor Malaysia’s GE13 which promises to be the dirtiest election ever held post independence?’ – Dr Jacob George

CONSUMERIST: UN ELECTION MONITORS FOR MALAYSIA’S GE13?

This is no rocket science just a fundamental course of action when fair play, good governance, accountability, ethics becomes a fatality in a democratic process!

More so, when there are allegations of abuses and vote buying and rigging that makes a mockery of the democratic process!

In situations like this the civil society invites a process of election monitoring which is the observation of an election of one or more independent parties, typically from another country, the UN or the EU or a non  governmental organization (NGO), primarily to assess the conduct of an election process on the basis of national legislation and international standards.

There are national and international election observers.

It is true that such monitors do not directly prevent electoral fraud but rather record and report such instances.

This will give or remove international recognition or legitimacy to a government if there are major election abuses!

Election observation increasingly looks at the entire electoral process over a longer period of time, rather than at election-day proceedings only.

In view of the manner the lead up to GE13 is shaping up with childish name calling and other vulgarities, with the allegations of corruption, attacks and verbal bashing of minorities and their faith, vote buying, foreigners given documents to vote and other incredible claims one cannot but ask whether the Malaysian Civil Society will urge international monitors either from the EU or the UN to monitor Malaysia’s GE13 which promises to be the dirtiest election ever held post independence?

CONSUMERIST: WHY SHOULD A LOW COST CARRIER TERMINAL COST BILLIONS?

Dato Jacob George

It seems no amount of public/voter rejection and anger of such extravagant spending has dampened the greed of predators to up the financial stakes of a public sector project!’ – Dr Jacob George

CONSUMERIST: WHY SHOULD A LOW COST CARRIER TERMINAL COST BILLIONS?

Despite the calls to be stringent and mindful with public monies I am appalled to learn that the new low cost carrier terminal will cost between RM3.6 billion to RM3.9 billion and be operational only in April 2013!

No I am not speculating but just citing what was made public by Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) managing director Bashir Ahmad today.

It seems no amount of public/voter rejection and anger of such extravagant spending has dampened the greed of predators to up the financial stakes of a public sector project!

Incidentally this is coming soon after an earlier controversy which erupted over the cost and delivery date for the terminal that was originally projected to cost RM2 billion and be completed by the third quarter of 2011.

The excuse is:

That there were changes to the design of KLIA2 including a longer runway and greater floor space from 150,000 sq m to 257,000 sq m!

We are also told that the original specs were that it was a 2-5 km runaway but for some inexplicable reason has now increased to 3.96 kms!

But the most stupid statement was that now the said runaway could ‘now use 747s?’

Could you imagine a Low Cost Terminal housing 747’s as a low budget carrier?

So who is making the money?

CONSUMERIST: COWS, CONDOS, CORRUPTION, RACISM AND A RUSHED BILL = TRANSFORMATION?

Dato Jacob George

‘The good thing is by Ahmad Maslan’s statement we can all now deduce that politically Malaysia’s arrogant, corrupt, power obsessed leaders are fearful of being rejected and routed in the next General Election by Malaysian voters who have now come of age and can see fabrication, conspiracy, corruption, abuse and blatant lies for what they are irrespective of the media spins by those masquerading as journalists!’ – Dr Jacob George

CONSUMERIST: COWS, CONDOS, CORRUPTION, RACISM AND A RUSHED BILL = TRANSFORMATION?

“We no longer hold power. Look at Selangor, who are the state excos? Ronnie Liu, Xavier, Elizabeth, Teresa Kok, this is the DAP agenda, Christianisation,” – A Racist?

A wrong is a wrong and a right must be forever be upheld but not here in Malaysia?

It is political expediency?

How else could you explain the no comment from both Khairy Jamaluddin and Saifuddin Abdullah who today refused to respond or acknowledge an Umno leader’s claims that Malays are losing power and that DAP is an agent of Christianisation.

I am all the more concerned as these two politicians were very vocal on political reforms, but as expected appeared surprisingly dumbfounded when asked to comment on remarks made by Ahmad Maslan earlier today that suggested a worst-case scenario for Malays if Pakatan Rakyat (PR) made more gains in the next general election.

The Umno information chief claimed that Malays would lose everything to the Chinese should the country experience a “hung parliament” scenario like Australia.

Both deputy minister Saifuddin and Umno youth chief Khairy shook their heads in response to Ahmad’s statement, but said nothing.

After a few seconds of silence, Saifuddin softly mumbled “tak apalah” (Never mind) before moving on to another topic.

And I just wonder why?

UMNO’s Ahmad Maslan claimed that the threat of “Malays losing power” was very real!

He had also accused opposition party DAP of disrespecting the royal institution as well as the national language, claiming that even Islam would be “lost” if PR won more seats.

“Say goodbye to Islam, because they (DAP) are agents of Christianisation … in talking about the Malay agenda we cannot run away from this,” Ahmad is reported to have said!

Stressing that the threat of “Malays losing power” was very real, Ahmad claimed that the Chinese community was slowly gaining control of the country’s politics and economy.

This, he said, was because the Chinese were currently leading in voter registration.

As long as Malaysia has politicians in the likes of Ahmad Maslan all talk of transformation is poppycock!

A mirage, a misrepresentation, a fallacy and a myth!

The good thing is by Ahmad Maslan’s statement we can all now deduce that politically Malaysia’s arrogant, corrupt, power obsessed leaders are fearful of being rejected and routed in the next General Election by Malaysian voters who have now come of age and can see fabrication, conspiracy, corruption, abuse and blatant lies for what they are irrespective of the media spins by those masquerading as journalists!

CONSUMERIST: UMNO’S AHMAD MASLAN IS AN ABSOLUTE IDIOT!

Dato Jacob George

‘Can politicians not explain government policies and how they intend to win the hearts and minds of the voters without fear tactics, without libel, defamation, smearing and damaging the image of Christians and other minorities in the country?’ – Dr Jacob George

CONSUMERIST: UMNO’S AHMAD MASLAN IS AN ABSOLUTE IDIOT!

Like many other peace loving Malaysians who have been analyzing recent racist tendencies and hate speeches I cannot but be utterly disappointed at the tone and tenor of this idiot’s attack against Malaysian Christians and others!

It also came a day after Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin warned UMNO Youth members not to hurt the party’s progressive image during the party’s general assembly tomorrow that it had painstakingly built up over the last few years where he alleged that UMNO was seen as more progressive and liberal now.
NONESo can Khairy Jamaluddin now explain what UMNO Information Chief Ahmad Maslan was saying speaking at a forum titled “Agenda Melayu pasca pilihan raya”, where this deputy minister trained his sights on the DAP, accusing the opposition party of disrespecting the royal institution, as well as the national language and that the DAP are “agents of Christianisation!

Stupid Ahmad also stressed that the threat of “Malays losing power” was very real, stating that the Chinese community was slowly gaining control of the country’s politics and economy.

What was this idiot Ahmad Maslan really talking about?

And thanks to this idiot a few million Christians and others will now certainly vote for the opposition!

Can politicians not explain government policies and how they intend to win the hearts and minds of the voters without fear tactics, without smearing and damaging the image of Christians and other minorities in the country?

Is Ahmad Maslam so stupid and foolish that he does not have the intelligence after all that has happened to be able to address issues with tact, intelligence and facts rather than like a moron that he is!

If Najib is really serious about transformation then the first thing he should do is sack his information chief!

I am curious what our friends in the MCA will say in regard Ahmad Maslan’s comments about the Chinese?
