[team a vs team a dalam pkr semakin hangat!...] ... MEREKA PUJUK SAYA JANGAN REPORT KEPADA SPRM

[team a vs team a dalam pkr semakin hangat!...] ... MEREKA PUJUK SAYA JANGAN REPORT KEPADA SPRM


Pengasas Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM), Badrul Hisham Shaharin hari ini mengesahkan pemecatan dirinya daripada PKR.

Badrul atau lebih dikenali sebagai Chegubard mengesahkan perkara berkenaan dalam laman Facebook beliau sebentar tadi.

Menurut Chegubard, surat pemecatan tersebut diterima beliau menerusi emel pada pagi ini, dan mendakwa tindakan pemecatan itu diambil selepas beliau enggan menerima ‘pujukan’ pihak tertentu.
Dipercayai ‘pujukan’ tersebut berkemungkinan bagi mendesak Chegubard membatalkan hasratnya membuat laporan kepada Suruhanjaya Pencegahan rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) berkaitan status ubah tanah di Paya Indah Wetlands pada petang ini.

“Dapat email pagi ini setelah semalam menolak pujukan terakhir. 3.00 petang ini di SPRM,” tulis beliau.
Chegubard dalam pada itu turut memuat naik surat pemecatan keanggotaan yang diterima beliau daripada ibu pejabat parti itu di laman Facebook beliau.
Menurut surat yang bertarikh pada hari ini (26 Ogos), mesyuarat Jawatankuasa Lembaga Disiplin yang bersidang pada 4 Ogos lalu membuat keputusan untuk memecat Chegubard atas dakwaan menjejaskan imej dan memecahbelahkan parti seterusnya ingkar dengan arahan parti.
Menurut surat yang ditandatangani Setiausaha Agung parti, Rafizi Ramli itu juga, tindakan pemecatan itu diambil sejajar dengan peruntukan di bawah Fasal 41.7 Perlembagaan Parti .
Ia juga menyebut bahawa dengan pemecatan tersebut, maka secara langsung Chegubard dilucutkan segala jawatan yang dipegang atas nama parti dan tidak dibenarkan menjalankan atau membuat apa-apa aktiviti, serta membuat apa-apa kenyataan atas nama parti.
Bagaimanapun, rayuan boleh dikemukakan kepada Majlis Pimpinan Pusat (MPP) untuk pertimbangan dalam tempoh 14 hari dari tarikh notis.
Chegubard beberapa hari lalu mendakwa PKR gagal memecat keahliannya berikutan gagal mendapat sokongan undi dua pertiga.
Dakwa beliau, kegagalan tersebut menyebabkan MPP PKR menolak usul itu serta-merta, sekaligus mengekalkan keahliannya.
Beliau mendakwa kononnya ada usaha menggunakan Fasal Pekeliling MPP menerusi Fasal 41.7 bagi tujuan memecatnya.
Bukan itu sahaja Chegubard juga mendakwa usaha tersebut didalangi Timbalan Presiden PKR, Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali yang cuba mempengaruhi anggota MPP untuk menyokong usul itu dengan menggunakan Pekeliling Resolusi MPP.
Chegubard sebelum ini mengugut akan membuat laporan kepada SPRM mengenai salah laku Azmin, berhubung kontroversi penukaran status tanah di Lot 68054 Paya Indah Wetlands, Selangor.
Chegubard mendakwa kerajaan negeri pimpinan Azmin memulakan usaha pelengkungan semula Paya Indah Wetlands di lot 68054 Mukim Tanjong Dua Belas Kuala Langat.
Laporan itu akan difailkan beliau di pejabat SPRM Putrajaya pada jam 3.00 petang ini – AP

Sah.. pemimpin UMNO tidur dan gemok masa dalam UMNO.

Sah.. pemimpin UMNO tidur dan gemok masa dalam UMNO.


Pada saya seorang pemimpin yang berada di atas.. tidak perlu mempengaruhi pengikut dibawah dengan kata-kata yang berbentuk peribadi dan serangan yang bukan perjuangan. Contoh Naib Presiden UMNO. Hishamuddin Hussein telah menyerang bekas pemimpin UMNO yang berada didalam penubuhan Parti Bersatu.
Jika benar lah pemimpin tidur dan gemok dalam UMNO.. Maka UMNOlah yang mengesahkan bahawa masa berada dalam UMNO dengan jawatan Menteri, mereka tidur dan gemok, dan apa kita lakukan supaya dia jangan tidur dan gemuk? Jawabnya kita sama-sama tidur dan menggemokan diri..

Walau pun nampaknya macam menyerang.. tetapi susunan ayat dan ucapan banyak buruk daripada baik kepada UMNO cara penyampaikan pesan kepada ahli akar umbi cara begini.
Kesimpulannya pemimpin UMNO mengesahkan dan berlaku pemimpin memang tidur dan mengemukkan diri.. Dan akan kekal begitu selagi dia tidak keluar UMNO dan menjadi musuh politik. Dan akan diserang habitatnya yang sama menyerang dia semula. Maka berlaku apa yang dikatakan kita membuka pekong sendiri. Bau sudah terhidu oleh semua orang.
Dan jika ada orang saperti saya.. cuba membangunkan tidur lena mereka jangan makan sehingga menyebabkan obisiti di serang kerana yang tidur lena itu ialah pemberi dedak kepada mereka tanpa melihat kesan apa yang akan berlaku kepada UMNO.
Mungkin ada orang berkata.. kenapa tak cakap sendiri dengan mereka.. Bukankah UMNO ada budaya sebati sejak azali.. Pemimpin UMNO sebahagian besarnya ialah akan tengok dan melihat siapa yang bercakap dan bukan mendengar apa yang dia cakap. Malah dia pun pernah mendengar akan sabda rasulllah.. 'dengarlah apa dia cakap, walau pun dia budak habshee' tetapi itu tidak terpakai kepada pemimpin UMNO yang diatas.. yang pasti kamu mesti Ketua UMNO Bahagian dan apa yang kamu boleh bagi kepada aku.
Nasihat saya kepada pemimpin UMNO.. berhati-hati dalam ucapan dan kenyataan media menyerang mereka yang sudah tidak berada dalam kapal kita.. Serangan saperti sesudah tidur dan gemuk menghentam UMNO.. adalah satu kenyataan mengesahkan tuduhan pihak2 pembangkang pemimpin UMNO tidak berjuang kerana Melayu tetapi untuk perut mereka.. Kenapa tidak berfikir dalam mengeluarkan kenyataan ini.
Hari isnin.. saya akan membongkar akan kisah bagaimana Scorpion@Kapal Selam TLDM tidak boleh menyelam.. Kapal Selam itu dibeli saperti beli rumah bertangga.. Rumah dibeli..tangganya tak ada.. Siapa yang nak telan projek 'haidrografi'?
Sekarang mereka dinamakan penderhaka dan pengkhianat.. tanpa bertanya diri sendiri.. siapakah yang menjadikan mereka begitu?

Per Capita GDP Has Shrunk, High Income Becomes Bullshit, Idris Jala Membohong

Per Capita GDP Has Shrunk, High Income Becomes Bullshit, Idris Jala Membohong

Here is a scorecard (from The Economist Magazine) that shows the foreign reserves position of countries around the world.  Foreign reserves means a country's holdings of foreign currencies which are a result of its trading with other nations (plus a few other things like gold bars, special drawing rights with the IMF etc).

You can see that Malaysia now has less foreign reserves than Thailand,  Indonesia and Singapore.  The Philippines is not too far away either. Folks we are firmly fixed in the Third World.  I dont think we are going to have any more extra Foreign Reserves by 2020 - our targeted birthday as a Negara Maju. 

 

Here is an interesting comment (Surat Pembaca) that has appeared at Astro Awani or somewhere.

Benarkah Malaysia semakin hampir menjadi negara berpendapatan tinggi?

Untuk mencapai tahap US$15,000, pertumbuhan PNK per kapita mesti 7% setahun.


Idris Jala kata Malaysia tidak lagi tersangkut dalam middle-income trap

adakah ini benar ?   Jawapannya: Tidak


perjalanan masih jauh ke arah negara berpendapatan tinggi.

pendapatan per kapita negara sebenarnya telah menurun sejak 2013
Menurut BNM, KDNK per kapita jatuh dari US$10,345 (2013) kepada US$9,291 (2015)


Ini penurunan sebanyak 10%

menurut (BNM) ia akan menurun lagi (2016) kepada US$8,821.

kekayaaan negara per kapita bukannya naik, tapi menurun. 


jauhlah lagi jalan menuju ke arah negara berpendapatan tinggi.

taraf negara kaya yang kita idamkan adalah selepas USS$15,000 bukan US$12,276.

Kita tidak seharusnya mengubah tiang gol semasa perlawanan berlaku. 


RMK11 juga sasaran US$15,000, bukan US$12,276 yang dilafaz Idris Jala.

untuk mencapai US$15,000, kadar pertumbuhan purata PNK mestilah 7% setahun


dari 2010 - 2014 PNK per kapita hanya bertumbuh 4.1% setahun. 


mustahil kita akan menjadi negara berpendapatan tinggi pada 2020 

tidak ada erti hanya sebahagian kecil rakyat menikmati kekayaan 


negara perpendapatan tinggi, tetapi rakyat majoriti berpendapatan rendah. 

gaji pertengahan rakyat Malaysia pada 2015 adalah RM1,600 sebulan.
separuh pekerja mempunyai gaji kurang dari RM1,600. 


Ini bukan pencapaian yang kita boleh banggakan.

negara berpendapatan tinggi tidak bermaksud rakyat akan terus menjadi kaya. 


Lihat Kuala Lumpur.  

Sekiranya Kuala Lumpur sebuah negara, ia sudah negara berpendapatan tinggi. 

Namun, separuh pekerja di KL mendapat gaji bulanan kurang dari RM2,200 (2015)

tiada peningkatan gaji langsung bagi warga pekerja di Kuala Lumpur (2015)


Bukannya makin kaya, tetapi makin tersempit.

Kuala Lumpur kaya, namun Kelantan dan negeri lain masih miskin.

Kuala Lumpur kaya seperti Korea dari pendapatan per kapita


Kelantan masih di bawah paras negara miskin, lebih miskin dari Sri Lanka.

Kesimpulannya, kita harus jujur 


Ini penting supaya pembaikan boleh dilakukan.
My comments :  Syabas Sdra Awang. 

Our economy has been shrinking.  Bank Negara Reports show that the per capita GDP has been shrinking since 2013. 

The per capita GDP has shrunk from US$10,345 (2013) to US$9,291 (2015) - a reduction of 10% ! !  


And according to Bank Negara the per capita GDP will shrink to US$8821 in 2016.   That is 15% down from 2013 ! ! 

And US8821 is 58% of the desired US$15,000 high income nation !

We are going backwards. The per capita income is shrinking.  

To me the worst case is the median income in Malaysia at RM1600 per month. This means half of all our workers earn less than RM1600 per month.

In KL the median income is RM2200.  

This is not a good situation at all. 

Ok here is the crunch. Awang has not stated this, but he has implied it. The vast majority of those under the median income level are Malays.

Awang mentions that Kelantan is poorer than Sri Lanka. That is the Malay economy.

Awang mentions that Kuala Lumpur has a per capita GDP that is higher than Korea. That is the non Malay economy (largely).

Awang mentions that half of all Malaysian workers earn less than RM1600 per month. That is also largely the Malay / bumiputra economy.

The Malays are getting poorer.  Melayu miskin dulu.  

As I said before, the solutions are all simple. Clean, effective and most important of all they will make everyone rich. 

It all starts with getting rid of that monkey and the troop of baboons that swing in the trees together.     

[interesting article..very interesting article to read...] ... Johor Sultan Vs Mahathir: An Analysis

[interesting article..very interesting article to read...] ... Johor Sultan Vs Mahathir: An Analysis


A Kadir Jasin


PREAMBLEThis subject has already been discussed by several debaters in the previous post. Any subject affecting the Rulers can easily trigger sedition accusation and, possibly investigation. Therefore, I appeal to all debaters to be careful when expressing your opinions. I apologise if I have to reject some of your comments.

I HAD initially not wanted to say anything about the verbal exchange between the Sultan of Johor and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on the subject of “Bangsa Johor”.

My feeling is, every Malaysian state has the right to be proud of their history and to promote their uniqueness. We are a federation and not a unitary nation. Each state has autonomy in the form of its supreme ruler – the Sultan, Raja and Yam Tuan.

But Dr Mahathir thought that the promotion of “Johor nationalism” is unhealthy for Malaysia and can lead to the collapse of the federation. He had said that while it is within the right of the Johor royalty to promote the idea, it was only with unity that Malaysia could prosper.

“Well, it is their right to promote the idea. But to me, if each state tries to be separate, then the federation will collapse. We need to work together because only with unity can we prosper,” he said when said in response to a question from the floor at the 20th Perdana Dialogue Series on Aug 24.

The Sultan of Johor had since responded personally. The media had described him as rebuking Dr Mahathir and telling him “to keep his mouth shut.”

A senior participant of our Kedai Kopi Assembly (KKA), who is known to know intimately both the Sultan of Johor and Dr Mahathir, thought that the matter should not be left unexplained.

He is concerned that the Sultan might not have uttered those “un-royal” words, which the media in turn described as rebuking the former Prime Minister. He also thought that the Sultan could have misinterpreted Dr Mahathir’s role as Prime Minister and world leader.

Here is the full text of his letter to me and another fellow blogger. It is published in full with only minor editing.

The Letter

“DYMM Sultan Johor has rebuked Tun Mahathir and told him to keep his mouth shut and blamed Tun Mahathir for many things.  First l would like to know if this is royal language.  Do royals speak this way?  Have we ever heard the Queen for example tell one of her subjects to keep his mouth shut? Or the King of Thailand or Sultan of Brunei or the Japanese Emperor?  lt would be interesting if someone can tell me these Royals also do what his Royal Highness is doing.

We have a constitution, which was drafted by experts with the input from our rulers where freedom of speech is enshrined in the constitution.  Is the Johor Sultan stopping people from expressing their opinions or stop rakyat from debating on issues which the rakyat show interest? 

For a ruler to take personal interest in issues affecting the rakyat is very noble but to curb the rakyat from expressing their opinions shows the lack of understanding of the democratic process and leaning towards intolerance of differing views, which is dangerous. 

In most constitutional monarchies, the rulers never issue personal statement. Any response from the palace will come either from private secretary or the press secretary and royalties stay away from getting involved in debates among the rakyat. 

Yes, Bangsa Johor was introduced in 1920 and this was to unite Johoreans, a very good concept when we were under the British that has brought foreigners to Malaya to exploit our fertile land and natural resources but since then we had “The Malayan Union” when the rulers, without consulting the rakyat, agreed to it and surrendered their rights away leaving them with no power.  Lucky the Malays rose and united themselves under the banner of Hidup Melayu and under the leadership of Dato Onn fought the British and succeeded to abrogate the Union and saved the rulers from being just khadis in their own states. 

Then we have the Federation of Malaya agreement and Merdeka, with its written constitution, and later Malaysia.  This is our history.  Once we agreed to form Malaysia, we all become Malaysians.  Malaysians first and Malaysians last.  In the Peninsula, we are free to live anywhere as Malaysians but to harp on our past means we are moving backwards and to continue with policies of the 1920’s simply means we are not facing reality of the present circumstances. 

Yes, Johor is doing well under present Sultan and he wants Johor to be run like a business entity.  Sultan himself is a very successful businessman and Johor government can benefit from his experience and advice but many also question if it is proper for a ruler to be involved in business.  This is for government and the people to decide.

Johor will continue to progress especially with the completion of last leg of double tracking from Gemas to Johor Bahru which now costs RM7 billion yet when Tun Mahathir wanted it done, the cost was just RM14 billion for whole country. 

Soon we will have fast train from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore, which will be a 90-minit ride.  The cost to build is now estimated at RM70 billion.  Johor will benefit greatly from this project.  But do we have the money and what will happen to MAS and Airasia?  lf we want our train to go to Singapore, why did the government stopped the Keretapi Tanah Melayu services to Tanjong Pagar and surrendered our land to Singapore?

With reference to the Sultan’s so-called chiding of Dr Mahathir, who the Sultan claimed is confrontational and likes to quarrel with world leaders, l think the Sultan should check with Wisma Putra as this involves foreign affairs.   

Is this allegation true and backed by facts or just repeating what others say?

Dr Mahathir did not quarrel with world leaders but was against policies implemented by them. He was against the American and British invasion of Iraq and was vocal about it. It was the same with Afghanistan and Libya, and he was proven right. 

Other third world leaders dare not voice their true views as they were poor and needed western support to help them run their countries. Privately they applauded Dr Mahathir for the courage to stand up to western powers. Even late Lee Kuan Yew privately praised Dr Mahathir and said we need Dr Mahathir to say all these things. 

Where is the quarrel with world leaders?  In case of Britain, their government raised university fees on foreign students. At that time we had many students studying in the UK.  Dr Mahathir was fighting against British policy, which caused a lot of hardship to Malaysians, especially parents who sent their children to study there. Is championing the welfare of our citizens wrong?

Britain also did not allow MAS to fly daily to London and limited it frequency to three flights a week. Is fighting for our nation equal to quarreling with foreign leaders?

When the late British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher realised they were wrong with their policies. They approached us to settle all outstanding matters and this we agreed and hence removed our policy of buy British last. 

With Singapore, is it our fault?  They wanted water from us and because Almarhum Tunku Abdul Rahman wanted to kick them out of Malaysia, we agreed to everything Singapore asked for and the most important was water, which came from Johor. Johor provided thousands of acres of land for this purpose. What Dr Mahathir wanted was a fair deal. He wanted a higher price for raw water sold to Singapore. Imagine, we sold to Singapore at such a low rate yet states in Malaysia sell at a much higher rate among themselves.  Is this fair?  Is it wrong to negotiate for a better price?  Singapore, without the water from Johor can’t survive. But now with new technology, situation has have changed. Since they are now rich, they can afford to use the technology to their advantage.
 
After the separation in 1965, they refused to release our citizens’ EPF after they stopped work in Singapore and return to Malaysia.  Fighting for their rights does not mean quarreling with Singapore. 

When our combined stock exchange split and we formed our own, they sabotaged us by creating CLOB and took away business from KLSE.  Is protecting KLSE quarreling with Singapore leaders? 

We must not be fooled by Singapore public relations. We must check with Wisma Putra and even Bank Negara and get the facts correct before jumping to conclusions.

The Sultan also said that Tun Mahathir was a divisive leader and caused disunity among the races and among the Malays and is the cause of the present problems.

Yet in the 22 years that he was the Prime Minister he brought peace, stability, economic prosperity, massive development and had the support of the people as could be seen by the two-third majority he received in five general elections. Who really is the cause of the present problems faced by the country and by the rakyat?  

Since the Sultan cares a lot about what is happening in country and the Conference of Rulers had issued a strong statement on 1MDB, the rakyat also would like to know His Highness’ view on 1MDB and DoJ case in USA and in His Highness’ opinion who the MO1 is? 

Tengku Mahkota Johor (TMJ) is on record saying that he wants to kill corruption in Malaysia.

Tuanku, your late father would not have gone to the press to answer Dr Mahathir but would have invited him to the Istana and have a quiet chat with him.  His would have been a different style and different approach.  

Ampuan Tuanku.”

[hot!!] ... National Debt RM600 billion !! Malay economy just grinding to a halt.

[hot!!] ... National Debt RM600 billion !! Malay economy just grinding to a halt.

Ok this is the update to that Chicken Little post.  The gomen sector is indeed grinding down to a halt. The Malay economy is dying as well.  Yesterday I attended another meeting with Tun Dr Mahathir. 





Dr Mahathir said that national debt has exceeded RM600 billion.  

Then I got home and saw the following in the email (thank you). Its a national debt clock that shows the Malaysian national debt exceeding RM600 billion.


Please click on the link. http://www.nationaldebtclocks.org/debtclock/malaysia


Please note that the national debt is 58% of the country's GDP. What does this mean?  Say you are earning RM5000. Half of that goes towards paying debt. You only have half your salary left over to pay for the other bills.  What if your monthly income is RM2000? 

Some people do not believe the economy (especially the Malay economy) is in deep shit. Here is more new. This is from yesterday 24th Aug, 2016 : 




Tesco is cutting 600 jobs in Malaysia. These are mostly low level jobs ok, plenty of Malays employed by Tesco.

And here is news about Utusan Meloya not being able to pay their salaries to their staff in July 2016.




The Utusan management staff received their salaries first. There was not enough money to pay 300 other junior ranks their salaries for July. (They were finally paid in August).  Utusan Meloya has cash flow problems. Info from a former Group Managing Editor of Utusan says that Bugis is pumping RM5 million direct cash injection into Utusan every month. Otherwise Utusan will bungkus.  Err these are mostly Malay staff ok.

Petronas has also laid off over 1000 staff since April - once again these are mostly Malays and Sarawakians.  So no "high income economy" left in Petronas.


 
Then Suzuki Bikes has shut down its motorbike assembly plant in Prai that has been operating since 1971 :


It did not say how many staff will lose their jobs but you can rest assured it is mostly Malays and it will be a few hundred people.

SilverBird (Hi5) bread business also closed down just before Hari Raya. 60 staff (majority Malays) were given 24 hour notices :


Hello morons, each time a factory closes down or a thousand people lose their jobs then you multiply their monthly  salaries x 1000 and that is how much consumer buying power has disappeared from the economy. 6% of that (GST) has also disappeared.  The gomen has lost corporate taxes and GST revenue from all those factroies and businesses that shut down.  


The way things are going what if the gomen cannot pay salaries to its Civil Servants? Dont think it is impossible.  The morons have already messed things up.  

The gomen economy and the related Malay economy is grinding down.
 
In the midst of all this, did you know that the morons have quietly removed duty free status from Langkawi and Labuan.  Tun Dr Mahathir first said this in his blog. I also checked with a friend in Langkawi.  I think this has been done to punish Tun Dr Mahathir, Mukhriz (Kedah) and Shafie Apdal (Sabah). 
 
This will kill off Langkawi, especially the Malay economy on that island.  My friend says that for now cars above 2000 cc are no more tax exempt in Langkawi. The "duty free shopping" is limited to some shops only.  Not to the entire island of Langkawi. 
Tourists (especially local tourists) go to Langkawi for the duty free shopping. Once you remove that, then why go to Langkawi? But isnt that largely a Malay economy as well? Ekonomi Melayu yang mati dulu. 

Never before in the history of this country has there been such a huge concentration of incompetents, idiots, morons, fools, thieves and cheats running its affairs.

[a very interesting article] How long must we pamper those selfish Sarawak politicians?

[a very interesting article] How long must we pamper those selfish Sarawak politicians?

When a component of Malaysia no longer sees itself as Malaysian, then inevitably problems will arise and tensions will flare. Take for instance the current ‘proxy war’ between the state of Sarawak and the Federal Government of Malaysia.
Right now, the brunt of the attacks is Petronas. A couple of months ago, it was the issue of devolution of power and the absolute autonomy of state.
Back in January 2016, Adenan Satem pledged to demand a more autonomous Sarawak should he be given a strong mandate to lead the state for the next five years. Using that statement as the campaign message in the subsequent state election in May 2016, he garnered a strong win over the opposition.
By July 2016, Adenan and the beleaguered Najib Razak held talks to bequeath more power to Sarawak.
Pressure is on for Federal Government to fulfil its promises. The weakened Barisan Nasional in West Peninsular is now being blackmailed by the politicians in Sarawak. Without a doubt, should any of the promises made were not fulfilled, the good relationship forged since the 1960s will disintegrate.
There were cracks in the Federation of Malaysia during the Sarawak Constitutional Crisis in 1966, and these cracks will emerge once again if the Federal Government is not intelligent enough in handling the situation.
Sarawak government and its political players are playing the victim card everytime they decide to twist the arms of Federal Government.
But these are all a charade. They claim that their people are still poor eventhough their state is rich in resources. On the contrary, some Sarawakian politicians are among the wealthiest people in the whole of Malaysia. Malaysians would be more sympathetic if Sarawakian politicians are seen to be comparatively poorer than their West Malaysian counterparts. But Adenan Satem for instance, travels in a private jet almost to everywhere he goes.
We don’t see any other public officials, Menteri Besar or Chief Ministers behaving as opulent as that. The hypocrisy is almost as worse as their cries of ‘Sarawak for Sarawakians’.
Yesterday, the MTUC even chastised the state government for its hypocritical stance against Petronas. In a statement, they said:
Sarawak MTUC said the state government was only concerned about protecting senior and connected Sarawakians and their firms, noting it had not heeded MTUC’s numerous complaints on other worker issues.
“The state government is so quick to protect 13 senior executives but at the same time turns a blind eye to the tens of thousands of foreign workers that are depriving ordinary Sarawakians of decent jobs with decent wages.
“These are really foreigners, including North Koreans,” said Sarawak MTUC secretary Andrew Lo in a statement.
Almost everyone in Malaysia knows the reason behind this, and the MTUC made it clear when they succinctly stated:
“Politics should not get in the way of hiring or firing. Businesses should not be dictated by some politicians for their own political and business agendas.
“Is all the noise over Petronas’s employment policy just a ruse to get more Petronas contracts for connected companies?” Sarawak MTUC Secretary Andrew Lo asked in a statement released today.
He said all recent news reports on the issue also risked creating a negative image of those interested in investing in Sarawak.
Speaking on the Petronas retrenchment exercise which saw a number of employees, including 13 senior executives, made redundant, Lo said the national oil company’s actions were nothing new.
“Given the current low oil prices and changing financial conditions, such redundancies are to be expected.”
The MTUC statement also called for Chief Minister Adenan Satem to look beyond just trying to protect the interests of 13 senior executives laid off by Petronas, while “turning a blind eye to the tens of thousands of foreign workers depriving ordinary Sarawakians of a decent job with decent wages.”
Due to the low oil prices, it is common for oil and gas companies to restructure their finances and cut costs. Petronas had announced the cutting of 1,000 jobs way back in March 2016 to meet the challenges in the oil and gas industry.
How selfish for the Sarawak state government to think that Petronas is only to get Sarawakians? Out of  a thousand, how many other staff from other states which were laid off? Did other states make any noise?
Each retrenched Petronas staff were offered voluntary separation scheme which probably run to hundreds of thousands ringgit in compensation.
Perhaps Adenan Satem and James Masing need to also check on how many Sarawakians have Shell and Petron terminated for the past two years.
Regardless, all these greed and silo way of thinking won’t make Malaysia great. People from West Malaysia had sacrificed their time, energy, effort and family in order to serve Sarawak for the past 50 years.
We had doctors, teachers, soldiers, engineers, and the whole gamut of professionals from West Malaysia that spent their lives in Sarawak – helping the sick, protecting its borders, teaching their children – without any qualms; because all of us see ourselves as Malaysians.
Then, there were no such calls like – ‘These doctors and teachers are stealing Sarawakians jobs!’
The West Malaysians never cried foul when Sarawakians come to work in Kuala Lumpur or Pulau Pinang or Johor Bahru. Certainly they don’t see it as other people stealing their jobs, because people in West Malaysia don’t see Sarawkians as outsiders. We are all Malaysians after all.
Redeployment, restructuring and re-positioning of staff within a company is a normal exercise. If Sarawak is stubborn, and its politicians are blatantly greedy, Sarawakians will suffer in the long run. If they continue to show their selfishness and hostility towards their own Malaysian company, then the people in West Malaysia will not be too friendly towards Sarawak. How long should Sarawak politicians be pampered everytime they throw a tantrum?
Does Sarawak deserve more than the rest of Malaysians?
If they are so territorial, then they need to recall Sarawakian working in West Malaysia or the rest of the world. Please do not steal other people's jobs.
If they are so territorial, then they need to recall Sarawakians working in West Malaysia or the rest of the world. Please do not steal other people’s jobs.
