Petronas sold 50% stake to Saudi Aramco or because it was a pay back for the US2.6 billion given to Najib?
Najib aka MO1 is really whacking the rakyat left and right! He has to source for extra Ringgit billions to buy Umno warlord’s loyalties and pay out BR1M. With international crude price hoovering around USD56.00 per barrel two weeks ago, he went ahead to announce an increase of RM0.20 per litre for RON95, to RM2.30 per litre. By right RON95 should be below RM2.00 per litre (USD56/barrel x RM4.44/USD 1.00= RM248.64) /159 litre per barrel= RM1.5638 per litre + RM0.3171/litre (MOP/production cost+kiosk comm.)= RM1.88 or RM1.90 per litre!
By what “right”?!
In capitalism, a seller can charge what he likes for his goods.
A buyer can refuse to accept the price.
Malaysia has a lot of crap products priced very high. Proton vehicles, for instance.
If you can’t buy a Merc, buy a Proton. If you can’t afford a Proton, you can walk. If you can’t run a car, you can also walk. Those who don’t own cars do that already, or take a bus, or whatever.
“He has to source for extra Ringgit billions to buy Umno warlord’s loyalties and pay out BR1M.”
If you do really have the evidence the “extra Ringgit billions” is to “buy Umno warlord’s loyalties”, then do let’s have that.
Paying out “BR1M” is fine by me. There are those who need that, and our rentseekers can also benefit from that. Poor people rarely own cars, and can not benefit from any subsidy or “fair” price (what’s that?!).
Subsidising our crap and dangerous drivers is a terrible idea. I would rather another 20 sens be added to petrol price so that at least a good number of our many drivers can be squeezed out of our roads.
Failing that, add another 20 sens, and another 20…
ATTENTION, ATTENTION, ATTENTION!
DAMN CLEAR PROOF THAT THE RED BEAN OLD MAN “ANG” IS USING MULTIPLE NICS. HE BLOGS AS ANONYMOUS ON March 1, 2017 at 6:02 pm.
YET HE ACCUSES OTHERS OF DOING THAT. CLEAR PROOF THAT HE CONSTANTLY LIES, CHEATS AND CONS IN THIS BLOG.
WHATEVER HE SAYS CANNOT BE BELIEVED.
Constantly Lying, Cheating and Conning Schizophrenic Red Bean old man Ang. Those can be seen clearly from the following, too:
1. At first, he cheated on his blogging name, using what appeared to be the full name of a Chinese, presumably in order to gain respect for him as a blogger. When threatened to have his name checked against the list of graduates of “top UK universities” that he claimed to have degrees from, he panicked, and declared that Ang Tao Peng is not his real name.
2. He claimed to be graduates of not just “two top UK universities”, but also of “two top US universities”. He is mad. Nobody can ever be like that. But when told that, he simply kept quiet. He doesn’t provide proof, substantiation or justification. Saying he’s not obliged to do so. So, we are “obliged” to deem him as Lying, Cheating and Conning Schizophrenic Red Bean old man Ang.
3. He claimed to be descended from “a clan of bankers and industrialists of East China”, denied being descended from “coolies” of South China brought in by British colonialists in the 19th century onwards. Yet, saying “his folks” having migrated to Europe bringing “a lot of wealth”, he is left plonked in a non-industrialist Malaysia and living in Sarawak (he claimed, though likely to be in Penang, a Red Bean, using so many names and pretending to be so many personalities. He knows the term “multiple personalty disorder” and the symptoms well).
4. In the beginning of his foray in this blog, he portrayed the image of, and did say he was a retiree, an old man, expressing the style of the usual Red Beans gang (those engaged by DAP to terrorize blogosphere during PRU13 election campaign, writing in uncontrolled fashion, often rude, abusive and vulgar, wild, unsubstantiated and unjustified claims and allegations). But when accused of being among the hooligans that caused the race riots of 1969, he denied being around, physically and age-wise, at that time.
5. He lied, cheated and conned so often that he even forgot what he lied and conned. And got caught several times in the process. I’m therefore quite sure readers would treat what he writes here as jokes and would just enjoy the fun and entertainment on and out of the schizophrenic old man Ang who stubbornly refused to take his pills.
For goodness sake, can we stop comparing Malaysia with other countries?
Why are we bothered if other countries are better or worse off than Malaysia? If they are better, congratulations and good luck to them. May be their leaders deserve another term in office with even higher pay and perks. If they are worse off, it is their problem, not ours. They have to figure a way out of their quagmire.
As Malaysians, we are interested only in our own well being based on the resources and talents we possess. We just want to know how this country is governed and how our resources are managed, not elsewhere.
First, why keep telling us other countries too are imposing GST. For all we care, they can tax their people to high heaven if they so wish.
What we Malaysians want to know is while our GST rate is at 6%, why is the actual impact on prices much higher than 6%? Did we apply the GST correctly? Is it really a value-added tax? It appears to me 6% is being levied across the board at every level of production. This is not value-added tax to me.
I hope we can all see the baloney here – most of us get only 3% saving rate and less than 6% pay rise (some not at all) and yet we are paying almost everything at 6% more, including medication and banking services. Sometimes a company does not even make 6% profit, and yet it has to pay everything at 6% more.
Second, please don’t tell us we are better off than Somalia or any other country. Are we supposed to feel better if we are better than nincompoops?
We don’t care how much a litre of petrol is in UK or Saudi Arabia, but we want to know why a kilogramme of bitter gourd is now RM11.00, a kilogramme of ikan kembong (small ones) is RM17.00, and a kilogramme of sotong (small ones again) is RM30.00? I am not talking about white pomfret or Kobe beef here, so please don’t accuse me of over indulgence.
Third, we don’t care why children of many countries have only rudimentary education. We just want to know why our education system is churning out uncompetitive and unemployable graduates despite the huge amount of money thrown into it every year.
Fourth, we don’t care which country is most corrupt. What difference would it make? Are we supposed to feel happier if we are second or third most corrupt? Look, we just want to know how and where the resources of this country are being used for the benefit of the people.
Fifth, why are we fixated with global competitive rankings published each year? What difference would it make if Malaysia is ranked 10 and not 20? Why do we even bother to compare when we are unable to export more and import less despite our ringgit depreciating by more than 30% in recent times? How do we explain our depleting reserves despite the hunky dory news we hear every day? Mainstream economists who keep saying weak currency is good for exports and the economy must now come forward to give us a proper explanation.
Agree with you.
Our concern should be focussed on the integrity of our leaders. If they don’t have integrity, whack them. So long as within the law.
The seleweng-ing and songlap-ing of 1MDB has been termed as “misappropriation of 1MDB funds and money laundering” by US DoJ which has taken court action to confiscate assets in US connected with that.
US sources of information have been used because of the dirth of info locally, esplly when the Auditor General’s report on 1MDB accounts has been classified secret under the OSA. And our Attorney General has not been saying anything further than “no wrong doing” despite PDRM and SPRM have been continuing with their investigations and must have been submitting further reports.
Low IQ ever foot-in-mouth Nazi always sucks up to the PM of the day. He praised Mahathir over Proton and claimed it was a national asset, now under Najib he condemns it. Also, all the 1MDB $2.6 billion lying donation happened well BEFORE 2015, when the King of Saudi was Abdullah. He died on 23 January 2015. So, the present King Salman, Abdullah’s half-brother, knew nothing about any dealings between 1MDB and Arabs in Abu Dhabi. In any event, there was no donation from any Saudi Royal to Najib. That is 1 BIG LIE from Najib to cover up his misappropriation, money-laundering and looting of 1MDB. It is repeated by UMNO and utterly corrupt and sycophant Cabinet members to protect themselves from being sent to jail along with Najib!
Agree with the above.
“Anonymous”, why are you pretending to be “a” for arseh*le, again?!
You have so many nicks fraudulently invented to agree with yourself and cheer you on, surely you could work a bit harder (even if that would kill a rentseeker), get the other nicks to work for their free dedak given to all those useless and worthless Mugathir-bred rentseeker retard monkeys!
The stupid fool cannot even distinguish Anonymous me and Anonymous another person for which I use the nic “a” in deference to him.
The language, the writing style of Anonymous March 2, 2017 at 8:17 am is certainly not mine.
But then this “Ang” bloke is mad – schizophrenic. So, he simply has no capacity to see the difference.
“is certainly not mine.”
Stop your un-Islamic lying lah!
The pig stupidity is unmistakable.
And so is the output of longkang quality Mugathir-bred rentseeker gibberish guttural pigdin Manglish!
The following comment needs be repeated here, too:
For the information of the non-regular visitors of this blog, stupid comments like the above are not replied to.
This message is placed here to avoid the schizophrenic Red Bean old man Ang thinking he has won any argument because the comment is stupid.
The problem is neither with the King of Saudi nor with Najib. The problem is we have greedy and hungry Rakyat and MPs who can’t tell right from wrong. They continue to believe what the thieves say. These greedy Rakyat will even go and spend time with the thieves and take picture with him because they all have Dedak coming down rich and strong.
I think the greedy rakyat are not many. Only those who write Projib opinions. Including those who suddenly turned Projib. And reported to be driving a BMW soon after the change in posture.
Najib is completely out of touch with the rakyat. Not so long ago RON95 was RM1.60, today it is RM2.30.
That means that the price has gone up by 70 sen per litre, or a 45 percent hike. While it didn’t happen overnight, it happened within the last few months.
Who among us has had a 45 percent increase in salary? Most of us have no increment, or at best 5 percent and less.
If you eat at the hawker centre you will know that prices have increased, cooking oil jumped from RM13.50 per bottle to RM21.50 per bottle. Sugar, flour, etc, have all gone up.
What is this out-of-touch politician talking about? I bet you he can’t even tell you the price of a loaf of bread.
GST and uncontrolled rising prices will be the tombstone of the Najib government.
YB Liew Chin Tong’s speech at “Rebuilding Hope” DAP Public Forum on 26th February 2017 in Miri, Sarawak:
Will UMNO become an opposition party?
One question Sarawakians often asked me is whether UMNO will come to Sarawak to take over the state government, and rule it the way it does in Sabah since 1994. The worry is real since Abang Johari Openg, a close friend of UMNO, is now at helm as Sarawak’s Chief Minister.
To answer my Sarawakian friends, I would like to ask these two questions: will UMNO survive the next general election or be relegated to become the new opposition?
Conventional wisdom assumes that UMNO is invincible and would never be defeated. After being in power for more than 60 years, it would take an overwhelming groundswell to dislodge UMNO from the seat of powers. Yet another political tsunami is not something far-fetched as we have seen it before in 2008 and 2013.
First, since independence till the 2004 general election, UMNO ruled through an extended coalition of Alliance/Barisan Nasional, and governed with a substantial support from the non-Malays. But the comfort of buffers formed by BN component parties in Peninsula eclipsed since UMNO made a right turn – becoming more visible in its claim of Malay supremacy – in July 2005, which caused massive defeats of MCA, MIC and Gerakan in both the 2008 and 2013 general elections.
Second, as UMNO is incapable of expanding its support base since 2013, collaborating with PAS becomes an attractive option. UMNO hopes that by colluding with PAS to divide the society into a battle between Muslims and non-Muslims, the UMNO-PAS de facto alliance would win enough seats between them to form the next government. However, as an unintended consequence, such a move further alienates non-Malay voters in the Peninsula, as well as majority of voters in Sabah and Sarawak.
Third, while Prime Minister Najib Razak managed to command more support among Malay voters than UMNO the party in the 2013 election, he is now a burden to UMNO due to the 1MDB mega scandal and unpopular economic policies such as GST, fuel hike and cuts to basic amenities like health and education. Angry UMNO leaders and members have formed Bersatu, and the new Malay party is making inroads to areas previously inaccessible to the Opposition.
In short, UMNO under Najib is on a narrowing path with a much smaller base than ever.
In fact, in the 2013 general election, 60 out of 133 seats won by Barisan Nasional were won with less than 55% of votes. These are considered marginal seats. Of those seats, 16 were won with less than 50% of votes.
For instance, there are at least 11 Barisan Nasional parliamentary seats in Johor, where I come from, that are up for grab if there is a swing in the favour of the Opposition.
These include: (in Southern Johor) Pasir Gudang (BN’s vote share at 49.6%), Pulai (51%), Tebrau (51%), Tanjong Piai (55%) and Johor Bahru (55.7%); and (in Northern Johor) Labis (49.5%), Segamat (50.3%), Ledang (50.7%), Muar (51%), Sekijang (53.2%), and Pagoh.
In the state of Kedah, the eight BN marginal seats include Jerai (50.2%), Kulim-Bandar Baru (51%), Pendang (51.5%), Merbok (51.9%), Baling (52.5%), Sik (52.6%), Jerlun (52.8%) and Padang Terap (54.6%). According to ground reports, the Opposition (especially with the entry of Bersatu) has made an impact in the seats of Langkawi and Kubang Pasu as well, making Kedah a major battle ground state which can tilt the balance of 10 federal seats if a swing is in the favour of the Opposition.
Of UMNO’s 88 seats, 14 are in Sabah, 1 in Labuan, the remaining 73 are in the Peninsula. Of the 73 Peninsula seats, 30 of them are more or less “built and designed” for UMNO that it is unlikely to lose even in the worst case scenario for the party. But the remaining seats are open battle fields.
While Pakatan Harapan-Bersatu has to be prepared to face a well-coordinated UMNO-PAS-Barisan Nasional campaign, the possibility of UMNO bocoming the new opposition, winning just 30-40 Peninsula seats, is not impossible either.
It is in such context that the GE14 is set.
The Dead And Past party is not going to get anywhere in Sarawak.
As long as the greased head of BrylcLim Kit Siang is stuck up Mugabe Mahitler Mo’s rear orifice.
Already the Dead And Past party lost seats in Sarawak in the last election because of that. It is not going to miraculously gain support in Sarawak.
The doomed situation is not helped by the Dead And Past party even losing its own leaders who have deserted the sinking sampan.
THE ABOVE ARE MERELY HIS OPINIONS ANYWAY.
I beg to differ from Mr Nazri’s saying that “the monarch would not have come to Malaysia if there was anything “shady” with the RM2.6 billion donation to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak”. Firstly, the Rm2.6 billion is not a donation from the Monarch, he isn’t the thief, fault lies in MO1’s “shady” dealings with Malaysians’ money, not the Monarch, so there’s no reason for King Salman to feel “uncomfortable” about somebody’s hanky panky dealings. Secondly, it is a state visit, not a personal visit to the Prime minister, King Salman is intelligent enough to see the benefits of keeping the diplomatic relationship between his country and “Malaysia”. Thirdly, if the Rm2.6 billion is truly a “donation”, why wouldn’t King Salmon confirm it publicly to clear his Muslim brethren’s name, whom he must have adored and hold high regard that he gave Rm2.6 billion as personal gift, after all ther’s nothing shameful or illegal to give Rm2.6 billion to somebody, right?
The protocol, the need for a state visit, the things said and not said by the Saudi monarch has been arranged by the Saudi Foreign Minister. A shrewd man who was Saudi Ambassador to the US previously.
He has, amidst claims that the RM2.6 billion came from the Saudi royal family, said that the funds were from “a Saudi individual”. As a diplomat, he chose his words well. He would not have used those words if the funds were really a Saudi royal family “donation”.
You, “Anonymous” and your fake nick “a” for ar seh*le” are/am merely speculating, inventing all sorts of nonsense, and doing longkang guessing , in the absence of everything everyone else either couldn’t care less about or don’t want to know.
Go easy on the overdrive with your wild jinn schizophrenic delusional fantasy.
Don’t pay too much attention to the soothing voices of your dear godfather Satan and his demons shagging off in your tiny rentseeker head.
And don’t depend on the psychic ability of your uncle the bomoh with two coconuts, with a degree from our university earned through lowered pass marks for useless and hopeless Mugathir-bred pig stupid and pig lazy rentseeker retard monkeys!
If you can’t get at any facts, try not to be a standup clown in a kopitiam, you just look a fcuking standup clown in a kopitiam, no fact, no information, no analytical skill, no nothing…
Just longkang “genius”, lot of hot air, and massive dossage of stupidity!
This biadap, kurang ajar, uncouth, unlettered and uncivilized “Ang” is also senile. At 70 plus years old, the Red Bean is also forgetful. Or simply does not accept past explanations given periodically that when there are others commenting as Anonymous, I use the nic “a” to distinguish my comments from those of the others.
But this communist and terrorist bugger would stupidity try and exploit that, especially when he has no arguments to use to counter the host of accusations an condemnation against him.
Obviously he is mad being caught red handed blogging under the name Anonymous again. His using multiple nics has been pointed out in the past. He got madder still when readers are told that he cannot be believed because of that. Instead of owning it up and explaining, he simply ignores it, like a thugs and gangsters do.
Constantly lying, cheating and conning, like explained in his CV.
So how come you are light years away from being able to write like me, eh?!
With content, wit, style, articulated, great communication skill, etc etc.
Other than forever recycling your very un-Islamic Satan-inspired lies and garbage, you are barely able to go beyond your gibberish guttural pigdin Manglish!
Could it be that you are just one of those useless and worthless pig stupid and pig lazy Mugathir-bred rentseeker retard chickenshit “supremacist” who typically overrate himself?!
“.. light years away from being able to write like me ..”
Delusion of grandeur again. In the past he frequently claimed about “my vast superiority”,
claimed to have “a huge colonial style Baba mansion” in Singapore.
Googling the words “delusion of grandiosity” produces the following:
– Delusions of grandeur are false beliefs held by an individual
– Delusions of grandeur are associated with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), which is a mental health diagnosis
– Grandiosity is a symptom of the manic episodes of bipolar disorder: elevated (heightened), expansive (grand, superior) or irritable. This mood … when not depressed. In mania … increased activity or energy … needs only three hours (at times he blogs at 3 am) sleep instead of the usual seven
Other examples of delusion of grandeur exhibited by Red Bean old man Ang are his claims of:
1. having degrees from “four top US and UK universities
2. having a host of professional qualifications and honorary awards
3. being descended from the non-existent “clan of bankers and industrialists” of East China (but not Shanghai, China’s commercial centre)
4. being wealthy, having so “many possessions” that it’s difficult for him to scram from this country despite being repeatedly told to do so because he has admitted not respecting the Constitution.
So, schizophrenic Red Bean old man Ang also has “the narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), also a mental health diagnosis.”
If you have not visited the Psychiatrist and been prescribed medication, you should do so now, old man Ang. It’d be good for you and for everyone else you get into contact with.
My above comment at 6:02 pm must have knocked the “Ang” fellow really hard on the head.
He went silent, unable to respond.
He must have thought for a moment and realized that he actually has those delusions of grandeur, and is indeed mad.
Hope he goes to see the Psychiatrist and, if he has done so, takes the pills regularly.
“must have knocked the “Ang” fellow really hard on the head.
He went silent, unable to respond.”
Pure drugged schizophrenic delusion!
Was too busy with a Malay girlfriend, hands too full to be bothered about coming here to make a Mugathir-bred pig stupid and pig lazy rentseeker running pig even more longkang pig stupid for his free dedak!
Here, again, the following comment needs repeating:
Clearly the PM’s advisers would have told him that all the recent talk about the country having been sold to China would not go down well with anyone, more so with Malay Muslims.
And so a new link has been rapidly established, this time with a Muslim nation, all for the purpose of regaining confidence as well as being able to make unreasonable comparisons between the two economies (of course, it goes without saying that there would be sub-purposes behind the scenes.)
Little does he know, just as Chinese Malaysians do not trust mainland Chinese, so too for most Malays when it comes to the Arabs.
Hi, fellow Anonymous. I agree with most of what you say.
He has been trying to win the support of the Chinese since before PRU13. Yet he was given the Chinese Tsunami at PRU13.
He may be given the Malay Tsunami as well at PRU14. At least that’s my hopeful thinking.
“At least that’s my hopeful thinking.”
Typical drain pipe dream of those Mugabe Mahitler-bred rentseeker retard monkeys!
What else if not deserving a repeat of the following comment:
“Little does he know, just as Chinese Malaysians do not trust mainland Chinese,…”
“Mainland Chinese” do not give a sweet and sour shit about “Malaysian Chinese”.
So that balances out rather nicely…
If there is such a pig stupid thing as “Mainland Chinese” to “Malaysian Chinese” or Malaysians, it only makes out Malaysia is some kind overseas territory of China.
Which sounds quite possible, considering our chickenshit “supremacist” rentseekers have to crawl to China, begging songkok in paw, kowtow to their imperial majesties!
This, too, needs repeating the following comment:
