TMJ - Melayu ‘busuk hati’...

TMJ bidas ‘cybertroopers’ UMNO...

Tuanku Mahkota Johor (TMJ) Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim hari ini membidas Pemuda Umno kerana menggunakan “cybertroopers” untuk mempersoalkan ketiadaannya sewaktu 2 perlawanan bola sepak Kumpulan A Sukan SEA baru-baru ini yang menyaksikan kemenangan Malaysia menewaskan Brunei dan Singapura.

“Kepada En. Ibdillah, tidak perlulah sibuk-sibuk dengan ‘cybertroopers’ awak untuk menghentam-hentam saya dan menjulang ‘bos’ awak,” tulis TMJ di Facebook hari ini, dipercayai merujuk kepada Ibdillah Ishak, ahli exco Pemuda Umno yang mempengerusikan Biro Media Sosial sayap itu.

TMJ yang juga presiden Persatuan Bola Sepak Malaysia (FAM) sebelum ini pernah mengkritik Menteri Kebudayaan dan Sukan Khairy Jamaluddin kerana tidak menghadiri perlawanan akhir Piala FA di Shah Alam Mei lepas.

Khairy, yang juga ketua Pemuda Umno, baru-baru ini turut menjadi sasaran TMJ yang menyindir kebolehannya dalam skuad polo negara Sukan SEA.

“Tiada sesiapa yang nak jatuhkan ‘bos’ awak,” kata TMJ kepada Ibdillah dalam catatannya hari ini.

“Awak perlu ingat sokongan terbesar parti politik awak datangnya dari negeri Johor.”

Walaupun tidak menyebut Khairy secara khusus, TMJ berkata beliau tidak boleh dibandingkan dengan ahli politik seperti menteri sukan itu.

Menurutnya, tidak seperti sesetengah orang yang “hanya tunjukkan muka di stadium”, beliau tidak mempunyai kepentingan politik.

“Saya bukan orang yang ingin menjadi popular tetapi ghaib apabila bola sepak negara memerlukan sumbangan,” kata TMJ, sambil menyentuh dana RM4 juta yang diberikan Sultan Johor, Sultan Ibrahim kepada FAM untuk membantu struktur skuad kebangsaan dan liga tempatan.

Menurutnya, beliau tidak berniat mengungkit sumbangan ayahnya.



Sebaliknya, TMJ berkata beliau bukan ahli politik yang cuba meraih populariti, sambil mempersoalkan sumbangan pihak Kementerian Belia dan Sukan (KBS) ketika FAM bergelut dengan masalah kewangan.

“Saya tidak salahkan pihak KBS yang tidak berikan duit kepada FAM. Maklumlah, isu duit berjumlah RM100 juta duit rakyat pun tidak dijawab lagi macam mana mereka nak bagi duit kepada kami,” tambahnya merujuk seorang pegawai kanan kementerian itu yang disyaki terlibat dalam penyelewengan dana RM100 juta tahun lalu.

TMJ turut membidas sikap “busuk hati” sesetengah orang Melayu yang menurutnya lebih banyak menghina raja-raja Melayu “jika dibandingkan dengan India atau Cina”.

“Tetapi apabila susah dan tersempit dengan ahli politik barulah bangsa Melayu ini mencari raja-raja mereka,” kata TMJ dalam kenyataan dimuat naik di Facebook hari ini.

Mengenai ketiadaannya ketika pasukan Malaysia menentang Brunei dan Singapura baru-baru ini, TMJ berkata ia kerana beliau bercuti di luar negara.

“Dari awal tahun hingga sekarang, saya belum bercuti lagi bersama keluarga saya wahai encik-encik yang saya hormati sekalian. Tetapi usah risau, kerana saya sudah menghantar wakil saya iaitu Menteri Belia Sukan yang bersemangat berkhidmat untuk negara dah datang memberi sokongan,” katanya.- fmt

Mampukah BN atasi pengaruh 
Anwar di Permatang Pauh...

Barisan Nasional (BN) tidak akan berjaya merampas kerusi tradisi Ketua Umum PKR Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim – yang kini menjalani hukuman penjara – di Parlimen Permatang Pauh, kata Pengarah Pendidikan Politik DAP Pulang Pinang, Steven Sim.

Perkara itu diyakini kerana, katanya, beliau sangat memahami sentimen penduduk di Permatang Pauh, memandangkan kawasan itu berjiran dengan kawasan Parlimennya, Bukit Mertajam.

“Ketua bahagian UMNO di sini sendiri pun tak berani berjumpa akar umbi dengan memakai baju-T Umno semasa Hari Raya.

“Mereka sangat maklum persepsi akar umbi kepada Umno sangat buruk,” katanya dipetik laporan The Malaysian Insight ketia membuat lawatan ke Sungai Lembu di Penanti, Permatang Pauh hari ini.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika diminta mengulas ucapan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak di Permatang Pauh, semalam, yang menggesa agar penduduk di kawasan Parlimen itu mengubah undi kepada BN pada pilihan raya umum akan datang.

Kerusi Parlimen Permatang Pauh disandang isteri Anwar Ibrahim, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Nor Azizah Wan Ismail.                        

Steven berkata, kemenangan BN sebelum ini hanya bergantung kepada faktor Anwar dan parti pemerintah itu tidak akan mengulangi kejayaan yang sama memandangkan pemimpin PKR itu kini sudah menyertai pembangkang.

Anwar, ketika masih bersama UMNO, merupakan ahli Parlimen Permatang Pauh dari 1982 hingga 1999.

Pada 1998, beliau disingkirkan dari jawatan timbalan perdana menteri dan kembali menjadi ahli Parlimen pada 2008 hingga 2015 sehinggalah dipenjarakan semula buat kali kedua atas tuduhan kononnya berlaku salah laku moral. -Roketkini.com

Who’s attending Najib’s 
‘record-breaking’ feast in Ptg.Pauh? 

Some 20,000 to 25,000 people are reportedly expected to attend a record-breaking nasi kandar feast while seated cross-legged in Permatang Pauh later this morning (17 August). 

The event, apparently dubbed Majlis Kenduri Rakyat dan Pemimpin Bersama Rakyat’ was held at Politeknik Seberang Perai from 10.30am to 1.30pm. 

Organisers said the turnout was over 21,000, with the participants’ registrations to back that figure. My own estimate of those seated on mats was that it was about half that figure. Check out the photos here.

The organiser told the crowd that no one had been paid to attend and indeed there were not many buses around outside the main entrance of the polytechnic. But there was plenty of free food as well as a string of pasar tani stalls. 

Just ahead of the event, about a dozen PKR youth activists were detained outside the polytechnic. PKR Youth had planned a flash mob to greet Najib on his arrival. 

From what I hear, polytechnics in Malaysia are having their holidays this week. But one parent whose daughter is in this particular polytechnic told me that the week-long holiday at this particular polytechnic’s holidays had been postponed. 

A Permatang Pauh Polytechnic student from Seremban, who was at the venue, confirmed this. “Our lecturers told us to attend,” she said, adding that she was not a BN supporter. “We were told attendance was compulsory. She added that their holidays had been postponed because of this event. 

Indeed, groups of polytechnic students bunched together were seen wandering around the tents aimlessly, some of them taking selfies and looking uninterested in the proceedings, others enjoying the welcome break.

Others present included civil servants from various departments, teachers and federal village security and development committee (JKKKP) representatives from various localities. From what I heard, various schools in the state were apparently sending half a dozen teachers each to this event. 

Najib’s visit to Permatang Pauh today is reminiscent of his visit to Universiti Sains Malaysiain Penang on 8 December 2012, five months before the 2013 general election. Some 15,000 people turned up for that event, many of them bussed in from all over the state in blue factory workers’ buses and orange school buses (see photos).

In an apparent dig at Mahathir (though he did not mention him by name), Najib slammed those who made U-turns. “Tak payah sebut nama.” He then urged the people of Permatang Pauh to make their own U-turn. 

Once again, this kind of event raises the question, how can the premises of an educational institution be used for what appears a thinly disguised political event? (Umno logos were printed on banners inside the polytechnic grounds.) Would the state government or opposition parties be allowed similar access? 

At the afternoon event at Spice in Penang for the launch of the Northern Region Economic Corridor 2.0 blueprint, thousands of students from the northern region – including Kedah and Perlis – attended. A senior teacher told me school principals in the state were also required to attend this event after school dismissal today. -anilnetto.com

The Hindraf's P Waythamoorthy was attacked by two assailants in his office on Wednesday. The two attackers who spoke Malay showed a knife in Waythamoorthy's face and warned him  'Jangan cabar kerajaan'.  They also punched him a few times and then quickly left his premises.  

Obviously the attack was designed to threaten and frighten Waythamoorthy. The question is 'Why are some people so afraid of the Hindraf and P Waythamoorthy?'  Do read on.

Then just a day after being attacked,  Waythamoorthy met Pakatan Harapan architect and leader Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed yesterday (Thursday)  at his office in Putrajaya. Also present at this quite momentous meeting were Tan Sri Sanusi Junid, Dato Zaid Ibrahim and others.

Waythamoorthy  is certainly no Samy Vellu.He is a lawyer who was educated in England.He was born and raised in Kelantan and can 'kecek Kelate' very fluently. 

Hindraf has studied 31 mostly UMNO  held parliamentary seats where UMNO (and some BN) have won by very slim margins.  

And in these slim margin seats, the number of Indian voters is many times more than the winning margins.

The article above says that UMNO won in Merbok, Kedah with just 4000+ votes. But there are 15,000 "estate" Indians in Merbok. If only about 2000+  Indians switch their votes, UMNO will lose Merbok.

The other example is the pendatang haram Jawa in Bagan Datoh. He won by about 2000+ votes - a very slim margin. Yet in Bagan Datoh there are over 9000+ Indian "estate" voters.  If only about 1000+ Indian voters switch sides, the pendatang haram Jawa may have to balik negeri.

In like manner, there are 31 mostly rural UMNO seats in Kedah, Johor, Perak and Selangor  where the numbers of Indian voters far exceeds the slim winning majorities in these places. With Hindraf's strong grassroots campaigning, the Indian voters can really knock out the UMNO candidates in these 31 Parliamentary constituencies.

Hindraf has already launched a very effective campaign among the Indians which I think must be expanded to all Malaysian voters. 

The campaign is "NOT A SINGLE VOTE FOR THE BN".  

Do spread the word around folks  -   NOT A SINGLE VOTE FOR THE BN"

The message is brief and catchy and more importantly it is achievable.  

For example,  talk is Melaka UMNO is now crippled and in the ICU. Some UMNO bahagian in Melaka may almost completely stop functioning.  UMNO members are just abandoning the party in Melaka.  

Since Hindraf has met Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed, Dato Zaid Ibrahim and Tan Sri Sanusi Junid, Hindraf will become more acceptable among the rural Malay voters.

a. PKR to work with PAS

Ok, a few days ago Wan Azizah said that PKR will work with PAS / UMNO in Kelantan.  
This means that in Kelantan, PKR will be fighting against Parti Amanah which is a component (along with the PKR) in Pakatan Harapan.  So in Kelantan PKR will be helping to sabotage the Pakatan Harapan.

Then one PAS fellow has given Wan Azizah a real slap in the face by replying that PAS considers PKR traitors and unreliable. PAS will not  work with PKR he said.

b. DAP / Amanah will certainly work against PAS (and PKR?) in Selangor

Then over in Selangor, the PKR will still be working with PAS again.  Indirectly they will also work with UMNO.  

So   in Selangor both Parti Amanah and the DAP will be actively campaigning and trying to sabotage as much of PAS as they can.  In Selangor, Amanah and DAP will be working against any PKR-PAS-UMNO  alliance.  But  Amanah, DAP and PKR are part of Pakatan Harapan.

So PKR cooperating with PAS creates serious faults and cracks. Indirectly PKR will also be cooperating with UMNO.

It is not impossible that in the next General Elections (which will likely be held next year - since Moron wants  so much to commit suicide)  the line-up will be like this:

1. Bersatu - DAP - Hindraf - Amanah - Warisan

                             versus

2. UMNO - PAS -  PKR - MCA - MIC etc.

In either scenario,  the presence of Hindraf will be of great benefit to the Pakatan Harapan.

My advise to P Waythamoorthy is to strengthen your doors. Get some Hindraf bodyguards. Take precautions.

A mad dog that is caught in a corner is a dangerous animal. Especially a stupid and corrupted dog. It will snap at anything. 

Finally what is the meaning of  "Thaniya maram tho'op-a akhaathu".

This is an original Tamil saying by Tan Sri Sanusi Junid, who speaks fluent Tamil, German and possibly other languages. Months ago, Tan Sri Sanusi set up his own 'Hindraf WhatsApp' group including Hindraf members and other Indians. 

In one of his postings he advised Hindraf members :

Thaniya - alone by itself

maram - a tree

tho'op-a - plantation

akhaathu - cannot become

Alone by itself, a single tree cannot become a plantation.

Sebatang pokok, dengan sendirinya tidak boleh menjadi ladang (atau kebun).

Meaning, you need friends to get things done. You must have allies. It is difficult to act alone. So welcome Hindraf to the Pakatan Rakyat. Its about time. - ostb

RM100,000 tunai dirampas dari peti besi Isa Samad...


Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) me­rampas wang tunai dianggarkan sebanyak RM100,000 selepas menyerbu rumah bekas pengerusi Felda Global Ventures Holdings Berhad (FGV) Tan Sri Isa Samad malam tadi.

Menurut sumber, serbuan di Senawang, Negeri Sembilan dibuat bagi meneruskan siasatan berhubung isu pembelian hotel oleh anak syarikat FGV, Felda Investment Corporation (FIC) di London dan Kuching.

“Wang berkenaan ditemukan dalam sebuah peti besi milik beliau yang kemudiannya dirampas bagi tujuan siasatan lanjut,” sumber itu dipetik sebagai berkata kepada Utusan Malaysia di Kuala Lumpur hari ini.

Setakat ini, tiga rumah Isa, termasuk di Nilai dan Liggi, Negeri Sembilan dilapor telah diserbu.

SPRM juga menyerbu pejabat barunya di Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) pagi ini.

Sebelum ini, FIC dilapor membelanjakan jutaan ringgit pada 2013 hingga 2015 bagi membeli dua buah hotel empat bintang namun pembayaran dipercayai dibuat melebihi harga pasaran.

Isa sedang menjalani perintah reman lima hari setelah ditangkap semalam. - mk

No one should get excited with the arrest of Isa for questioning. This is only a sandiwara to lull the Rakyat into thinking that some actions had been taken. 

The due process of law  takes time and it requires an AG to decide whether there is enough evidence to prosecute.

Najib had RM2.6b deposited into his bank account yet the AG had the compulsion to tell the world that there is no case against him. He has been absolved of any wrong-doings pertaining to 1MDB.

The purchase of hotels and what-nots in UK was done by Isa's and Najib's son. Prosecuting Isa means prosecuting Najib too. 

No one should be shocked to hear later that AG would announce that the case against Isa be dropped due to insufficient evidence. 

In Malaysia someone who is in power can even get away with murder. Corruption is only a mild case, you can easily go scot-free.

Malaysia BOLEH is in its elements again! - A lawyer in a WhatsApp group

Isn't PM aware of 
Felda's splurge on hotels?..

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and other cabinet members would likely have given the greenlight for Felda Investment Corporation's (FIC) acquisition of a luxury hotel in London, which is currently under a corruption investigation, PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli says.

Rafizi said the FIC's acquisition of the hotel would have required the permission of the Economic Planning Unit's (EPU) Economic Council, chaired by Najib, because all big government investments abroad require the council's approval.

This was evident, said Rafizi, when former Mara chairperson Annuar Musa explained how the agency acquired properties in Australia that were also subjected to investigaion by the MACC.

At the time, Najib explained that the Economic Council's decision to approve Mara's acquisition was not his decision alone and was made with the consensus of all council members.

"In view of this, the purchase of the hotel in London by FIC would have gone through the same approval process: It was brought to the attention of and approved by the Economic Council, chaired by the prime minister and other senior ministers," Rafizi said in a statement today. 

The Economic Council was established on July 30, 2008, to deal with economic issues when Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was prime minister.



More roles for council with Najib as PM

After Najib became prime minister, the Economic Council took over the roles of other government councils and cabinet committees, including the cabinet committee on investments.

The MACC is investigating allegations that FIC overpaid for a hotel in Kensington, London, and for another hotel in Kuching between 2013 and 2015.

Several former Felda executives, including its chairperson Mohd Isa Samad, have been arrested to assist in the investigations. Isa's two houses have also been searched for evidence.

Rafizi said that if Isa was being probed for misappropriating Felda's money and receiving inducements, then members of the Economic Council must also be subjected to the same treatment.

"If there is evidence that they were aware that the acquisition of the hotel involved foul play, because it was more expensive than it should be, and yet they approved it, then (the Economic Council) should be probed for suspicion of receiving inducement.

"If there is proof that they received inducement, then they should be arrested, just like Isa.

"If they were unaware of foul play but failed to identify the risk of the investment and failed to identify if Felda had overpaid, then it means that (the Economic Council) makan gaji buta (failed in its duties) for breach of trust as members of the Economic Council.

"They ought to be sacked. If they have any dignity, they should resign," Rafizi said.

He also urged the people and his Pakatan Harapan allies not to rejoice over Isa's arrest because it was likely that the latter was just a scapegoat.

"It is uncertain if we can uncover the truth behind this issue, unless there is a thorough investigation," Rafizi added.- mk

Another PAS leader attending Umno’s organized event again.in its political event. And as always they claimed that their attendance were on non-party basis, not as PAS officials. Who are they trying to fool Malaysians? Have any of the PAS leaders attended any Harapan’s events? No. The irritating point is that Pas acts like a ‘bashful’ wife’ trying hard to disclaim real connection with Umno.If Pas wants to make love with Umno, say it.It is their right. However,we hate the deception.It is like they are afraid of being caught for khalwat (close proximity).Let us help you say it for you; PAS and Umno are in close relationship. Period.

Najib tak tahukah Isa Samad bermasalah?...


Pelantikan Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad selaku Pemangku Pengerusi Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat (SPAD) terus dipertikai berikutan penahanannya oleh Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM), semalam.

Ketua Parlimen DAP, Lim Kit Siang berkata, Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak seharusnya tahu bahawa bekas pengerusi Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGV) itu bermasalah sebelum memutuskan memilih Isa Samad untuk mengisi jawatan tersebut.

“Najib pasti menerima banyak rungutan mengenai kegiatan rasuah, salah guna kuasa dan pecah amanah membabitkan Isa Samad, bukan sahaja berkaitan pembelian hotel di London dan Kuching, malah pembelian hartanah oleh Felda dan FGV.

“Mengapa Najib tetap meneruskan pelantikan Isa Samad sebagai Pemangku Pengerusi SPAD apabila yang sepatutnya dilakukan Najib adalah membiarkan siasatan dilaksanakan bagi menentukan sama ada Isa Samad benar-benar melakukan kesalahan tersebut.


“(Malah) Bagaimana dengan jawatan Pengerusi SPAD yang ketika ini dipangku Isa Samad berikutan penahanannya oleh SPRM?” soalnya yang juga Ahli Parlimen Gelang Patah dalam kenyataan, hari ini.

Beliau justeru menggesa Najib agar menjelaskan kepada rakyat berhubung keputusannya untuk tetap melantik Isa Samad dalam jawatan tertinggi SPAD walaupun Menteri Kewangan itu sepatutnya mempunyai akses kepada maklumat mengenai salah laku pemimpin UMNO itu.

Isa Samad dibawa ke Mahkamah Majistret Putrajaya pagi ini bagi permohonan reman oleh SPRM susulan siasatan badan itu terhadap pembelian dua hotel di London dan Kuching oleh Felda Investment Corporation (FIC) yang merupakan anak syarikat FGV.

SPRM sedang menyiasat pembelian hartanah oleh FIC di Kensington, London antara 2013 dan 2015 dengan jumlah £60 juta (RM330 juta) iaitu di bawah harga pasaran pada masa pembelian yang dikatakan berjumlah RM110 juta. – Roketkini.com

Isa Samad direman 5 hari, permohonan tahanan di hospital ditolak

Malaysian can shout and yell,in the end it's sandiwara. Wait n See...
Chief Thief Flushes Isa Down The Toilet...

Whether it is a sandiwara or no (the AG may decide NOT to prosecute Isa) most certainly Isa's reputation has been flushed down the toilet. He has been arrested - that is now on the record. 

Isa is another another corrupted crony who has been thrown to the dogs by his boss the Chief Thief. 

I dont know whether these morons realise it or not but that is how the Chief Thief seems to operate. He uses all these crooks to do his dirty things. 

Then if they get caught or their dirty deeds are exposed and the temperature gets too hot, he just lets them get sacrificed. They become used toilet paper. That is what is happening to Isa.

The question for Isa Samad and all the other crony crooks to ponder is how come their boss Chief Thief is still walking around scot free? - ostb

Isa only a medium size fish

Will Isa swim free like the 
18 sharks Pak Lah failed to net?...

When Abdullah Ahmad Badawi took over the leadership reins from Dr Mahathir Mohamad in 2003, he had promised to come down hard on corruption.

Recalling this period in the wake of former Felda chairperson Isa Samad's arrest, Lim Kit Siang wondered if this was a re-run of a pre-general election tactic.

Prior to the 2008 general election, he said the then minister in the Prime Minister's Department Rais Yatim announced that the Abdullah administration would net “18 sharks” for corruption.

“But not a single 'shark' was netted to be convicted and sentenced in the whole five-year Abdullah premiership and all the 'lightning and thunder' about eradicating corruption by netting and nailing the 'sharks' ended in a whimper without any results,” he added in a media statement.

“Will the same mockery of justice repeat again with the approach of the 14th general election?” he asked in reference to Isa's case.

According to Lim, the circumstances of Isa's appointment as chairperson of both Felda and Felda Global Ventures (FGV) and now as Land Public Transport Commission (Spad) acting chairperson make this a pertinent question.

The DAP leader also pointed out that Isa was suspended for six years from Umno after the party's disciplinary board found him guilty of money politics.

“With such a background, the appointment of Isa to top public posts is most questionable and creates an onerous responsibility on the prime minister to be constantly on alert that such a blemished appointee should strictly abide by the principles of good governance, integrity and accountability.

“Had Najib performed these additional duties in this case?” he asked.

Lim also urged Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to explain the reasons for appointing Isa as chairperson of both Felda and FGV, and since July, as acting chairperson of Spad.

He also wanted the premier to disclose the state of Isa's present position as acting chairperson of Spad following his arrest and five-day remand.

Isa was arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) yesterday to facilitate investigation into Felda Investment Corporation's (FIC) purchase of hotels.

MACC is reportedly looking at two hotel purchases one in London and another in Kuching, suspected to be at bloated prices. - mk

Isa Samad dicekup SPRM,digari atau tak...

Bekas menteri besar Negeri Sembilan dan pengerusi Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGV) , Tan Sri Isa Abdul Samad, ditahan Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia sebentar tadi.

Menurut sumber, penahanan Isa ada kaitan dengan siasatan agensi antirasuah itu terhadap pembelian dua hotel oleh syarikat Felda Investment Corporation (FIC).

Menurut sumber, Isa ditahan ketika hadir untuk memberi keterangan kepada SPRM di ibu pejabat agensi terbabit di Putrajaya kira-kira jam 2.40 petang tadi.

Timbalan Ketua Pesuruhjaya (Operasi) SPRM, Datuk Azam Baki, mengesahkan penahanan Isa.

Katanya tindakan menahan bekas naib presiden Umno itu adalah tindakan susulan penyiasat SPRM yang memperoleh keterangan-keterangan daripada pelbagai pihak sebelum ini.

"Justeru, SPRM yakin mempunyai asas kukuh untuk membuat penahanan tersebut supaya beliau dapat membantu melengkapkan siasatan kes berkenaan," tambah beliau.

Isu pembelian hotel oleh FIC bukan sesuatu yang baru. Kira-kira empat tahun lalu Isa - yang kini dilantik menjadi pengerusi Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat (SPAD) - mempertahankan tindakan tersebut.

Kata Isa pembelian hotel di London itu tidak bertentangan dengan perniagaan teras syarikat perladangan terbabit.

FIC yang juga anak syarikat Felda membeli Grand Plaza Service Apartments bernilai £115 juta (RM586.5juta) itu selepas pernah melabur dalam lapan hotel sebelum itu.

"Hotel ini bukan satu perkara luar biasa, pembangkang tak berapa faham, sebelum ini kita dah beli lapan hotel," katanya pada Oktober 2013.



Harga lebih tinggi

Pada 27 Mei 2015, Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Paul Low memberitahu siasatan awal SPRM tidak menemui apa-apa asas kesalahan berhubung dakwaan penyelewengan pembayaran RM538 juta oleh FIC untuk membeli sebuah hotel mewah di London.

Low ketika itu menjawab soalan Anggota Parlimen Seremban Anthony Loke, di Dewan Rakyat, yang bertanya mengenai status siasatan pembelian hotel mewah Grand Plaza Kensington di London.

Bagaimanapun pada 14 Julai lalu Ketua Pesuruhjaya SPRM Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad mengarahkan kertas siasatan pembelian hotel itu dibuka semula ekoran ada maklumat baru mengenainya.

Kata Dzulkifli pasukan penyiasat juga mengambil dokumen berkaitan pembelian hotel tersebut dan menilai serta meneliti kesemua maklumat diperolehi.

Dekat2 PRU14 kita lihat agensi2 gomen di bawah Najib masing2 begitu sibuk dan agresifnya depa buat tangkapan dan tahan suspek2 rasuah. Tujuannya supaya rakyat akan lihat betapa seriusnya gomen Najib benteras rasuah.Tapi adakah segala tangkapan dan tahanan itu didakwa, dibicara itu berakhir dipenjara? Hangpa pikiaq2 mai...

“Menerusi maklumat siasatan awal, FIC dipercayai membeli hotel itu dengan harga jauh lebih tinggi berbanding harga asal sehingga mengakibatkan FIC mengalami kerugian jutaan ringgit," katanya.

Perkembangan itu menyaksikan SPRM menyerbu pejabat FIC, mengambil pelbagai dokumen dan melakukan penangkapan.

Antara yang ditahan ialah pegawai khas Isa yang juga pemimpin Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (BERSATU) Mohd Zahid Md Arip, peguam dan wanita pembantu di sebuah firma perundangan.

Untuk rekod Isa, 67, adalah veteran dalam Umno yang pernah berkhidmat sebagai menteri besar Negeri Sembilan antara April 1982 hingga Mac 2004.

Beliau juga pernah digantung keahliannya dalam parti kerana disabitkan kesalahan "politik wang".- mk

Isa Samad arrested over FIC hotel deals

Pasai apa gari Phee 
tapi tak gari Latif Bandi?...

Tindakan reman selama lima hari oleh Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) terhadap Phee Boon Poh yang kemudiannya dibatalkan Mahkamah Tinggi Pulau Pinang membangkitkan kebimbangan Ahli Parlimen Segambut, Lim Lip Eng.

Rakan sejawatnya yang juga Exco Pulau Pinang itu, katanya, dikenakan tindakan hanya kerana mengeluarkan dua surat bagi meminta tindakan penguatkuasaan terhadap sebuah kilang haram ditangguhkan sehingga jalan penyelesaian terbaik dicapai.

Kebimbangan itu timbul berikutan, Lip Eng sebelum ini turut pernah menulis surat kepada Jabatan Penguatkuasaan Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) dan Datuk Bandar Kuala Lumpur supaya menangguhkan tindakan meroboh dan menghalau penghuni premis haram.

Beliau justeru itu, secara sinis meminta supaya SPRM memberi notis terlebih dahulu supaya beliau boleh menyerah diri ke lokap badan berkenaan jika apa yang dilakukannya itu melanggar undang-undang.

“Jika benar saya seorang suspek di mata SPRM dan perlu ditahan reman sehingga lima hari, saya perlu meminta para penghuni premis haram khususnya penduduk setinggan supaya meminjam wang secukupnya untuk membayar peguam, kerana mereka juga pastinya akan ditahan bersama-sama saya.

“Begitu juga dengan pegawai DBKL dan Datuk Bandar yang mungkin akan disoal siasat oleh pihak SPRM, berikutan surat saya itu,” katanya dalam kenyataan, hari ini.

Setiausaha DAP Wilayah Persekutuan itu menegaskan bahawa beliau dan Boon Poh tidak pernah mendapat keuntungan atau saham daripada mana-mana kilang haram.

“Lebih penting lagi, seperti Phee, saya tidak menerima apa-apa balasan apabila berjabat tangan dengan mereka yang datang berjumpa, baik yang mendiami bangunan haram, penjaja haram, tokong haram, kuil haram, gereja haram, setinggan atau kilang haram; untuk meminta bantuan saya,” ujarnya.

Beliau turut mempersoalkan sikap pilih kasih SPRM dalam menjalankan tugasnya.

“Selain misteri kenapa Saudara Phee perlu digari tidak seperti Exco UMNO Johor yang tidak digari ketika dibawa ke mahkamah, SPRM perlu memberi penjelasan kepada rakyat tentang kenapa mereka tidak mempunyai sikap yang sama terhadap ahli politik Barisan Nasional (BN) yang menulis surat untuk membantu pemilik premis haram.

“Atau adakah SPRM boleh mengesahkan bahawa ahli politik BN langsung tidak mengeluarkan surat seperti itu?” soalnya.

Exco Johor, Datuk Abd Latif Bandi pada April lepas menghadapi 33 pertuduhan membabitkan rasuah berkaitan hartanah berjumlah lebih RM30.3 juta.

Berdasarkan carian atas talian, tiada sebarang imej yang menunjukkan Abd Latif digari oleh pegawai SPRM ketika dibawa ke mahkamah bagi menghadapi pertuduhan berkenaan. – Roketkini.com
Who will bail out Petronas?...

Our oil money comes from our oil wealth. Oil wealth means Petronas. Plus all other oil companies that operate in Malaysia. 

At one time the dividends and taxes paid by Petronas to the government totalled RM65 BILLION!!! Plus taxes and oil royalties paid by other oil companies operating in Malaysia,  the gomen's financial survival is dependent on oil money.  


Image result for Who will bail out Petronas?...

1. Do you all recall one time when MAS went bust, Petronas bailed out MAS? Yup, our oil money was used to buy planes for MAS. It was a bail out.

2. Then Petronas bailed out Bank Bumiputra TWICE  (in 1984, 1989) - a few billion Ringgits were involved

3. Petronas bailed out  Proton.

4. I believe Petronas also bailed out KTM once. (Can anyone recall? I could not find it on the web. Kalau tak ada oops!)

5. Petronas funded our FI Racing Circuit.

6. Petronas money built Putrajaya (Putrajaya Development Bhd)

7. Petronas money built the twin towers,the KLCC.

The point I am making is, we have been burning our oil money.  

So here is a question: Who will bail out Petronas?

What if Petronas goes bust or Petronas runs out of cash, then which other cash cow industry do we have that can bail out Petronas and give the gomen money to burn?

The quick answer is : None.  This is the end of the line.   



So the gomen has no choice but to start milking the biggest cash cow in the country. There is a huge cash cow in the country.  

It is a real 'lembu'. That is you and me folks.  We are now the lembu tunai (cash cow). 

Through the GST, we have stepped in to close the huge hole caused by the depleting oil revenues for the gomen. That RM40+ BILLION or so GST they are collecting every year directly from us  is to plug the lost oil revenues. 

The oil money was a 40 year honeymoon.  It is now history.  

Now it is the dawn of the age of the lembu. Can the lembu provide?  Can they milk the population for RM40 - 50 BILLION each year? 
  
To answer this question, look at that list of Petronas bailouts again, items 1 - 7 above...  

Bank Bumi, MAS, Proton,  F1, Putrajaya, KLCC, etc etc.  All that money did not go into building capacity.  All that money was used to REMOVE COMPETITION IN THE ECONOMY.

In particular, all that money was spent TO REMOVE AND SHIELD THE MALAYS / BUMIS FROM COMPETITION.

That is why that cartoon below is exactly to the point.  



Mrs Burung is telling Mr Burung, 'tak payah berlagak sangat. Kita duduk tinggi ini pun sebab ada kabel.'

For 40 years our oil money was used as wallpaper.  To cover all the cracks and all the fungus growing on the walls. 

We did not use the oil money to teach Mr and Mrs Burung to build a solid, free standing house. (Berdikari went out the window).

Now the party is over.  The cracks are getting bigger. The fungus is growing through the wall paper. There is no more "oil money" to wallpaper all the problems away. Kabel akan putus. 
  
So a large section of our population (ie the Malays / bumiputras) will face problems trying to provide for themselves as well as pay that GST. They will become poorer.

Now we go to education.
  
Education always has, it still can and it always will provide the capacity for any community to advance itself - socially, politically, economically even "religiously" (they should grow out of it). 

Education is not just passing exams, learning chemical formulas or solving maths problems. Education is much wider than that. Education must mould people to become useful and competitive human beings who inhabit this planet earth.  Useful not just to themselves or competitive not just among themselves but useful to all human beings and other creatures and competitive with the whole world at large. 

Now, why isnt our gomen school system doing that in sufficient enough quantity for the Malays / bumiputras? 

- increasing Islamisation seeping in
- poor teaching and delivery by teachers 
- admin of national schools dominated by one race 
- schools too Islamic 
- disciplinary issues major problem 
- schools not maintained well, outdated computers.

Why are the Chinese schools (and now the super charged Tamil schools)  doing so much better than the gomen schools?  May I make a suggestion? Why not walkover to the Chinese and Tamil schools and ask them "Yo, what is your secret?"

It was not always like this. Until the 1970s and early 80s our government schools were just about as good as any in Singapore or in other advanced countries.   
   
The Malay proverb says, 'bila sesat dihujung jalan, balik ke pangkal jalan'.  

So why not just go back to the fantastic system that we had until the early 1980s? Just undo all the damage that has crept into the system since then. Apa susah sangat?

Just swallow the pride, the ego and the stupidity. After all,   '..tak payah berlagak sangat.  Kita duduk tinggi ini pun sebab ada kabel.'  The wall paper experiment has failed. The 40 year honeymoon under the luxury of burning oil money is over. 

Malay readers, figure this out.  Whether you like it or not, the Chinese people perform very well in their studies. Malaysian Chinese have become world class academics, professors and researchers.  I know Malaysian Chinese who hold two professorships simultaneously - one here in Malaysia and another overseas (in Australia and one more in the US).   They are internationally well regarded.

And yet not one of our public universities in Malaysia (IPTA) have a Chinese as a Vice Chancellor. Seorang pun tak ada. Instead we have kangkung professors in so many IPTAs.  And one Persatuan Professor Kangkung recently came out in support of the kleptocracy over the 1MDB scandal. That tells you how kangkung they are.  

So Malay readers figure this out. You send your kids to the local IPTAs to be taught by these professors. Do you think your kids have a good chance of graduating as first class performers?

You think your kids can compete in the real world? I dont think so. They are doomed. - ostb

Ribut 'Nothing to Hide' & Jenayah 1MDB...


Nothing To Hide 2.0

'Dengan nama Allah mereka mengganas'...

Anggota Jawatankuasa Pusat Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (BERSATU) Datuk A Kadir Jasin percaya tindakan provokasi kumpulan penghasut semasa forum Nothing To Hide 2.0 di Shah Alam semalam membayangkan keterdesakan penaja mereka.

Menulis di laman Facebook, katanya, semakin jelas operasi ganas yang sanggup mereka lakukan demi mempertahankan kuasa yang semakin terlepas.

“Di satu pihak mereka berdoa dengan nama Allah di pihak yang lain mereka mengganas.

“Saya ada di satu dari awal hinggalah para pengacau mula bertindak menjerit kemudian membaling capal, botol air dan kerusi serta menembak flare,” katanya. 

Menurut bekas ketua pengarang Kumpulan New Straits Times Press itu, kejadian berlaku di penghujung sessi soal jawab di mana beberapa soalan yang jelas ditanam oleh penaja kumpulan penghasut berjaya ditangkis oleh Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Ini termasuklah soalan mengenai DAP menjadi parti utama Pakatan Harapan, Dr Mahathir meminta maaf kepada Datuk Seri Anwar dan peristiwa Memali.

Sesetengah penghasut, katanya tidak puas hati apabila jawapan Dr Mahathir kepada soalan mereka disambut dengan tepukan dah teriakan "hidup Tun".

“Saya nampak ada penghasut yang ditahan oleh ahli ARMADA dan orang ramai manakala yang lain lari bertempiaran sambil menanggalkan kemeja-T BERSATU/ARAMADA yang mereka pakai untuk menyamar.

“Jelas tindakan provokasi kumpulan penghasut itu membayangkan keterdesakan penaja mereka yang mengakui bahawa majlis-majlis anjuran BERSATU dan Pakatan Harapan mendapat sambutan sukarela rakyat jelata,” katanya.

Kadir bagaimanapun tidak menamakan kumpulan penghasut itu walaupun ketika majlis berlangsung terdapat penyokong kerajaan yang berada di dalam dewan berkenaan.

Acara itu menjemput Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak untuk menjelaskan skandal 1MDB yang dikaitkan dengan pengubahan wang haram di luar negara. Bagaimanapun Najib gagal menghadirkan diri ke pada progam itu.

Acara yang bermula pada jam 3 petang itu kemudian bertukar menjadi ganas pada kira-kira jam 5.30 petang ketika Mahathir berucap kepada orang ramai.

Ketika Mahathir menjawab soalan mengenai tragedi Memali di Baling pada tahun 1985, selipar dan kasut dilemparkan ke arahnya. Ini diikuti oleh beberapa objek lain termasuk kerusi, botol air dan suar di dalam dewan. 

Bagaimanapun, tiada objek mengenai Mahathir apabila anggota keselamatan bergegas untuk melindunginya. Pertempuran kemudian berlaku apabila penyokong BERSATU cuba menghadapi provokasi berkenaan yang akhirnya melarat keluar dewan.



Jenayah 1MDB

Pada 11 Ogos agensi berita ekonomi Bloomberg melaporkan yang pihak berkuasa Amerika sedang menaikkan taraf siasatan skandal 1MDB daripada sivil kepada jenayah.

Bagi kita mungkin kebetulan tetapi ialah adalah kehendak dan perancangan Allah. Doa rakyat jelata yang teraniaya lambat laun akan dimakbulkan.

Jabatan Kehakiman Amerika (DoJ) dilaporkan meminta mahkamah di Los Angeles menangguhkan kes sivil terhadap 1MDB, khususnya ke atas Jho Low dan konco-konconya - termasuklah anak tiri Najib, Riza Shahriz Abdul Aziz - agar tidak mengganggu siasatan jenayah.

Maksudnya, pihak berkuasa Amerika telah menaikkan taraf tindakan ke atas pencurian duit 1MDB dan penggunaan duit haram itu di bumi Amerika daripada kes sivil kepada jenayah.

Ini adalah proses biasa di Amerika. Mereka mulakan dengan penyiasatan dan tuduhan sivil (civil indictment) kemudian apabila tindakan sivil itu berjaya atau menghasilkan bukti yang kukuh, mereka naikkan tarafnya kepada tuduhan jenayah (criminal indictment). 

Itulah antara kaedah yang digunakan oleh Rudolph Giuliani ketika beliau menjadi Peguam Negara Amerika bagi Daerah New York Selatan pada tahun 1980-an bagi memusnahkan rangkaian jenayah Mafia di bandar raya itu. Giuliani kemudiannya menjadi Datuk Bandar New York.

Ironinya, tidak banyak beza di antara jenayah ganas Mafia seperti yang didramatisasikan dalam siri filem “The Godfather” dengan jenayah korporat yang diabadikan oleh Riza dalam filem terbitan bersamanya “The Wolf of New York”.

Penyiasatan jenayah 1MDB di Amerika itu melibatkan wang yang dicuri daripada 1MDB yang didakwa digunakan untuk membeli hartanah, lukisan, emas pertama, jet eksekutif, kapal layar dan menerbitkan filem.

Nilai harta curi itu dianggarkan kira-kira AS$1.7 bilion atau lebih kurang RM7.3 bilion dan melibatkan kegiatan jenayah yang dilakukan di bumi Amerika sahaja.

Siasatan jenayah di Amerika itu menyusuli tindakan jenayah yang sudah pun diambil oleh Pihak Berkuasa Mata Wang Singapura (MAS) yang menyebabkan beberapa orang eksekutif yang terlibat mengubah wang haram 1MDB didenda dan dipenjarakan, dan dua buah bank ditutup. 

Inilah ironinya. Negara-negara yang orang kita hina sebagai negara kafir telah atau sedang bertindak terhadap “jenayah abad” (crime of the century) ini tetapi negara kita yang kononnya Islam menyapunya ke bawah permaidani.

Tetapi kita semua tahu bahawa bangkai gajah mustahil boleh disembunyikan selama-lamanya apatah lagi apabila baunya semakin hari semakin meloyakan.

Dalam usaha menimbus bangkai itu, imej Malaysia menjadi amat buruk, ringgit terus lemah, hutang negara melambung dan kebolehpercayaan kerajaan jatuh merudum.

Semakin hari kita semakin terjajah kerana mengemis hutang, khususnya daripada regim komunis di Beijing, untuk membayar hutang 1MDB yang telah mencapai RM50 bilion pada awal tahun 2016. - A.Kadir Jasin


Dalam Gangster Pun DNA Depa.
Cant They Get Anything Right?...

That flare that was thrown at the Nothing To Hide 2.0 gathering in Shah Alam yesterday was not something you can buy from the fireworks sellers in Chow Kit or Masjid India. How did these punks get that flare? Who supplied it to them? Here is the answer : We will never know.

Here is a screen grab from Star TV. That chubby guy (with no head) is wearing a black t shirt that says 'Security'. Yet he is pushing a chair directly into the fire.

These trouble causers were obviously paid to make trouble. 

Folks, this is the end of it all. 
They are losing control of themselves. 
They are getting desperate.
They do not know what to do.

Until a few months back, things were sort of going sideways. Even I was getting worrried. Then suddenly they fired that Felda CEO and everything blew up again.

Then it has been one thing after another. The US DOJ filed the 'THIRD' case? Then now they have initiated criminal investigations.

Then that pendatang haram Jawa really embarrassed them about that fake IC name.  (The theory is that the pendatang haram Jawa could be working against MO1, he has his own agenda.)

Now this ruckus in Shah Alam.

The longer they postpone the elections, the worse it is getting for them. 

They just do not know what to do.- ostb

When a 92-year-old man is attacked, there is only one conclusion:... 
Najib is very afraid...

There are many people who are displeased with the new Mahathir Mohamad and Pakatan Harapan line-up. They have threatened not to vote in GE-14, because they claim that they would only jump from the frying-pan into the fire.

The former PM has been given a new lease of political life. With the Opposition, Mahathir’s new line-up looks like a rag-tag team of former foes, ganging-up against an adversary, who is making his last hurrah. Is this a fair assessment, or is this a group of patriots who are giving-up everything, to save the nation?

Third. Over thirty years ago, Kedah Umno (before it became Umno-Baru) complained, to Mahathir about the threat posed by a charismatic and influential ustaz, called Ibrahim “Libya” Mahmood, from PAS. The 1986 general election was approaching and Umno feared they would lose badly to PAS.

Ibrahim “Libya” refused to be held under the ISA and this resulted in the siege of Memali, when 14 PAS supporters died. The irony is that PAS appears to have forgotten the extreme violence used by the police against Memali, because today, Hadi Awang, of PAS, has aligned himself with Najib. It is as Mahathir once said, “Melayu mudah lupa”.

Can you see the bigger picture?

Are the Malaysians who will not vote in GE-14 justified in staying at home, or are they being irresponsible?

Are they content to do nothing? Are they happy to live with high prices, corruption, incompetent civil servants and rising racial and religious intolerance?

Do they realise that if they vote for change in GE-14, they can vote PH out in GE-15, if the party fails to perform?

If they do not wish Mahathir to be PM, but are happy for PH to lead the govenrment, do they realise that they can make their feelings known to the Opposition, now?

There are many capable Malaysians, who could lead, and as Zahid Hamidi, the DPM has acknowledged, we have had non-Malay PMs, before.

Thomas Fann, a human rights activist and political observer disagrees with people refraining from voting in GE-14, just because they are displeased with Mahathir. He said, “Idealism is a luxury we cannot afford, when the house is on fire.”

Whilst the news of Mahathir’s new Opposition team, may upset a lot of Umno-Baru supporters and definitely, the PM, Najib Abdul Razak, there are many Malaysians who are displeased for other reasons.

These Malaysians say that Mahathir’s policies sowed the seeds of disunity, and they disagree with Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) need in teaming up with him.

They claim that PH could win on their own, without Mahathir. They also dismiss the projection of Malay loyalty to Mahathir, and claim that this may well be an overstatement.

They are also angry with the infighting in the Opposition.  Instead of presenting a strong united force, to bring down a weak Umno-Baru, they are busy trading blows with one another.

The Mahathir-PH alliance is full of irony

First. Abdul Razak Hussein, Najib’s father, saved Mahathir from the political wilderness, after he was chucked out of Umno by Tunku Abdul Rahman.

Who would have thought that Abdul Razak’s son, would one day, be Mahathir’s pupil, and fine-tune his divisive tactics of race and religion?

Second. When Mahathir resigned as PM, many said that Najib was only a seat warmer for Mahathir’s  son, Mukhriz. This is now a moot point as Najib had other designs and the nation is now a battleground in which former political foes fight for the prized crown of PM.- Mariam Mokhtar

PAS-UMNO cooperation and 
possible GE14 scenario...

Pas practices mature, constructive politics says Najib.

The prime minister, who is on a one-day visit to Kelantan, said because of Pas’ maturity in politics, the party had become a constructive opposition party.

“We oppose (one another), but in certain matters that bring good and benefit for the people, we can cooperate,” he said.


Most significantly, Najib said all that at an Umno function in Pas-governed Kelantan and in the presence of Kelantan Umno chief DS Mustapa Mohamed. I think it's sort of a signal to Tok Pa and Kelantan Umno people that it's okay for them to let Pas keep the state as it has now become a good opposition party, and friendly to BN.

In return, perhaps they may probably have a Pas-Umno coalition Kelantan government after the next general election. The same set-up seems possible in other states too, particularly in the outright Malay majority states of Kedah, Terengganu, Pahang and Perlis.

They may have an arrangement where Pas lead in Kelantan and Kedah while Umno lead in Terengganu, Pahang and Perlis. If Umno and its BN allies prevail in the other states, Pas elected representatives may also be included in the state administration there even though the party may not be joining the ruling coalition.

BN may also expect support from Pas MPs in the parliament even if they are sitting in the opposition side of the hall. In return, Pas may get the support of Umno MPs every time it proposes some "Islamic laws".

There may even be ministers appointed from among the Pas MPs at that point. It's actually a good arrangement for both Umno and Pas. It secures at least the five outright Malay majority states for Umno in the bigger picture, while Pas may get to lead Kedah in addition to its Kelantan now.

Yes, Kedah may then also have syariah public whippings too like in Kelantan soon. 



Pakatan's Malay parties of Pribumi and Amanah which were expected to contest in those states may not likely stand much of a chance against a combined Pas and Umno arrangement. Okay, maybe Pribumi and Amanah can put up a bit of a fight in Kedah but I don't think the Dr Mahathir factor is enough for them to defeat a combined Umno and Pas in the state.

Kedahans that I know told me that they will only vote either BN or Pas. They seemed allergic to other than those two parties. It's brand loyalty, I guess. With that, Umno can therefore concentrates its energy and resources in the other states where Pas knows that it would not be able to do much due to its lack of non-Malay support.

There are Penang, Perak, Selangor, Federal Territories, Negeri Sembilan, Malacca, Johor, Sarawak and Sabah. BN will probably not put up too much of a fight in Penang, Selangor and Federal Territories. The anti-BN sentiment on the ground there is probably very bad, that they would not want to waste too much effort and resources.

Meanwhile, Sarawak is already in the bag. Sabah too. 

Probably Shafie Apdal's Warisan may manage a decent showing but I doubt it will be able to do more than just winning a few electoral seats. So the only real fight will be in Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Malacca and Johor. They are going to be the key states of GE14. BN is likely to put more efforts there than elsewhere. I believe Pakatan planners knew this and will do likewise. 

Their chances are the best in Perak and Johor where the racial composition and level of political awareness are similar to that of Selangor. Pakatan chances in Perak should be for now at about 50/50. and in Johor about 40/60. Even if they can't wrest those states, Pakatan may likely be able to get extra parliament seats there.

I think Negeri Sembilan and Malacca are at slightly lesser risks for BN compared to in Perak and Johor. Still, BN does have the over all advantage at this stage.



Worst case scenario for BN is that it loses in Penang, Perak, Selangor, Federal Territories, Negeri Sembilan, Malacca and Johor but still wins (with the help of Pas) in Perlis, Kedah, Pahang, Terengganu, Kelantan, Sarawak and Sabah. That's 7-7. But a more realistic scenario is that, BN is just likely only going to lose in Penang, Selangor, Federal Territories and maybe Perak.

Despite some of my friends in Johor saying my home state will likely fall to Pakatan, I still think BN will prevail there. It may lose some more parliament and state seats but I just can't believe that it can become another Selangor. To a lesser extent, I feel the same about Negeri Sembilan and Malacca.

Combined with Pas MPs, I also think BN will still control parliament even though without the two third majority after GE14. It should basically be about the same as now. Again, bear in mind that my calculations include the likelihood of Umno-Pas coalition state governments in Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang, Kedah and Perlis.

Okay, at the moment, that's how I think it will be for GE14 and its outcome. - Annie@lifeofannie
