Koh Tsu Koon has finally found his balls. The “bo hoot durian” (seedless durian) is starting to grow some seeds. He finally found his voice and socked it to Dear Leader at the Gerakan convention in Penang.
We read in the New Straits Times that among the names he called Lim Guan Eng were: Misleader and Twister King.
LGE is the king of misleading people and twisting facts to suit his purpose. He has told outright lies. He makes false accusations against people. He denies having a love affair with Ng Phaik Kheng aka Rainbow.
We can’t think of better titles for this fellow that Malacca rejected and who has been like a travelling circus moving from state to state looking for a safe seat. He was born in Johor but can’t find the guts to contest there because Johor is a BN state.
He has misled Penang into the hands of greedy developers, sold them land meant for low cost housing, delivered precious state land in Bayan Mutiara into the hands of a developer with one of the worst track records in Penang.
Penang’s coffers were full when Gerakan fell but LGE claimed it was empty. He claimed to have brought in RM600 million into Penang’s balance sheet but the money came from the federal government payment for the Penang Water Authority assets.
He claimed Penang is cleaner than ever. But unless you have eye problems like the senior Lim, you will see that the kopitiams and the drains in the housing estates are as dirty as ever. Everytime there is a downpour, it floods! Why? Because the drains are not cleaned and cleared.
He got angry when people said he was getting very friendly with developers. But he changed a leasehold piece of prime land next to E&O Hotel to freehold and sold it to a KL developer to build a boutique hotel. People are very angry at how he is bending over backwards to appease the developers.
He claimed the hills are still green and alive but pictures show the hills are dying and people living next to hill projects are crying. Then he got angry and accused the media of lying when he is the worst liar in Penang history. A picture tells a thousand words and Dear Leader tells a thousand lies.
We would like to ask him about the house he is now living in. Who is the owner? Who is he renting it from? Never mind, we won’t wait for his answer because he will lie again. We will tell you the truth.
The house that the CM is staying in belongs to a Penang developer called Tan Sri Dato Seri Tan Kok Ping, a millionaire who made lots of money when the BN was in power but has jumped ship like a rat.
Kok Ping is also the chairman of the Han Chiang chinese school in Penang who helped the DAP cruise to power by letting them use the Han Chiang school field for mass rallies during the 2008 general election for free.
We hear that he can walk in and out of the CM’s office and they are always on the phone. He is probably giving advice to the greenhorn CM on how to develop the hills.
Recently Kok Ping even defended Dear Leader’s attempt to block the federal government from privatising Penang Port by trying to get the Penang chambers of commerce to bid for the port. Penang port must remain in Penang hands, he cried as the Johor born CM looked on.
Unfortunately, the Penang Indian chambers were not interested in the stupid idea. The Penang Malay chambers snubbed him completely. They don’t want to have anything to do with DAP or LGE.
Anyway, Kok Ping has been rewarded. Dear Leader gave Kok Ping a Dato Sri title during the Governor’s last birthday. We heard that the Governor had wanted to give CAP president Mohd Idris the tile for his environmental efforts in Penang.
But Dear Leader said, what for, you think I stupid or what? We want to develop Penang. Green hills look nice but cannot make money for my developer friends.
His campaign for the next general election is UBAH. In Penang the theme also means to change Penang into a concrete jungle and a developers’ paradise.
Our fear is that he will succeed in doing that because we hear that DAP will win big again and Dear Leader will continue to be the Great Misleader and he and his developer friends will twist and turn and sing their way to the bank.
Koh Tsu Koon, you re-discovered your balls too late to save Penang.
