Dr M's Sting (Ep. 6 - Govt will answer)

Excerpt from the frontpage of NST today:-

"PUTRAJAYA: The Abdullah administration will move soon to kill off allegations by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad that it had made wrong decisions in several areas."

***************

Like many others who are following the latest saga, I eagerly await the next move by Pak Lah. Will it be the right dose of antidote to counter the venomous sting executed by Dr M?

I just hope it is not another dirt-fest from Pak Lah's ringside. Certainly, it would be deadly for all of us to be caught in the fatal collision between the two gravy trains running at full speed.

***************

Surprise, surprise!

Or is it no surprise at all?

"One-eye closed" MP wants to have his say too:-

Datuk Mohd Said Yusof (Jasin) said: "At no point did he (Abdullah) lose his cool and or start accusing anyone. He said the Government must show Malaysians that we are transparent."

Good show of loyalty there. And here's some more support for the beleaguered PM:-

Pulai MP Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed hoped that once the Government has given its side of the story, Dr Mahathir would be satisfied and stop lambasting the Prime Minister and his administration.

“I feel good, Datuk Shahrir felt good, and I think even the PM felt good about the meeting,” said Ketereh MP Datuk Alwi Che Ahmad.

Bera MP Datuk Ismail Sabri said the meeting was meant to send out the signal that Umno MPs were unanimously behind the Prime Minister. “We want to show our solidarity on this issue. Whatever the outcome, we are with him.”

Nur Jazlan found Abdullah focused and calm, despite the pressure on him. “But we don’t want this issue prolonged,” he said.

(The Star, 13 June 2006)

At least the above show of support were carried by the paper FOC.

On the other hand, I am certainly not glad to see the full-page bodek ad put up by "The Government and People of the State of Selangor Darul Ehsan" at page N20 of The Star today.

Read in full: "SALUTATIONS. We are deeply honoured to welcome Y.A.B. Dato' Seri Abdullah bin Haji Ahmad Badawi Prime Minister of Malaysia on your working visit to The State of Selangor Darul Ehsan on 13 June 2006 With utmost sincerity from The Government And People Of The State Of Selangor Darul Ehsan."

My grouse: Does the State Government need to waste public funds paying for a full page full colour advertisement to trumpet our PM who is merely carrying out his duties, as in, isn't it just one of those working days when it is Selangor's turn for site inspection?

Syiok sendiri? Hey - bukan free tau? Siapa yang tanggung kos bodek tu??

****************

Fascinating, isn't it?

So many are lining up to get on the right train.

UPDATE: 14 June 2006, Wednesday @ 2:25pm

Another full page full colour ad on page N13 The Star today:-

Read in full:-

THANK YOU
Our deepest gratitude and sincerest appreciation to
Y.A.B. Dato' Seri Abdullah bin Haji Ahmad Badawi
Prime Minister of Malaysia
on your working visit
to
The State of Selangor Darul Ehsan
on
13 June 2006
With utmost sincerity from
The Government And People Of The State Of Selangor Darul Ehsan

*********************

This "syiok sendiri" syndrome is going into over-drive. Maybe it does PAY to bodek the BOSS:- (excerpt from The Star headline "Support Me and I'll Support You, says Abdullah")

Abdullah praised Selangor for its development projects which emphasised on agriculture. He said Selangor was “the best” among the states in Malaysia. Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Khir Toyo, in his welcome speech, said Selangor would continue to support Abdullah.

See? What are the other MBs waiting for??

Wow, Putrajaya is in Selangor. I'm sure he's on a 'working visit' everyday so why not plan a whole-year advertisement using tax-payer's money?

Unless, of course, AAB is seldom at the office and we the ppl at Selangor are over-joyed to see him and hopefully get him to actually WORK like a PM should.

Hi there mob1900! I think you are right. One day's worth of one full page ad probably not enough to impress the BIG BOSS.

Doc MB ought to line up schoolkids and wave the flag along the road leading to the EXCO Village so that AAB can see for himself how EXCO members live in style in A DEVELOPED STATE!

And maybe print a few hundred thousands worth of buntings and fix a dozen or two billboards featuring both their mugs smiling down on ppl of Selangor as a reminder of how your tax monies are so well spent. ;P
