First and foremost, I'm feeling much better already from the depressing issues of late.
Back to talking about the topic of the day.
I was listening to the parliamentary debate that was aired on TV1 earlier today. I couldn't believe what our supposed leaders are debating. Instead of debating on issues pertaining to national security, national integrity and subjects that are of public interest they shockingly debate on the condition of toilets in the parliament and a proposal to form a ministry of toilets. What on earth is going on? Are our the rakyat's
tax money going down the toilet bowl as well?
Guess there is more to just raising the issue of toilets by YB Lim Kit Siang. He has a point to prove of the inefficiencies of the Ministry of Public Works. He raised the issue of the recent expenditure of about RM99 million on the renovation works done to the parliament building. Recently, we also heard in the news about the poor workmanship that have cause the roof to leak even after such a hefty expenditure. There have been enough of hints that something is not right about how the appointment of contractors are done and the low level of quality produced. Some of the problems related to the toilet issue are that the doors of the 'ladies' could not close and the pumps not working. These are simple maintenance job that should not have been a problem. We know of how corrupted the system
is and thanks to some who are still participating in this despicable act, continues to feed the appetite of receiving duit kopi
. Anyway, what can Malaysians expect from a governement who cannnot even maintain a toilet in working conditions to build proper defect free roads? Maybe it is time for a change, don't you think so?
It is a very sad event in the history of Malaysia as an independant country to be unable to carry out project effectively and efficiently. After 48 years of independance, we still have problems with toilets and stupid
remarks being thrown at the opposing side in the parliament. I would say the person who provoke YB Lim to say stupid a couple of times is really stupid. If one is unable to bear listening to someone speak, then don't. Afterall this is a 'democratic' country. Anyone can speak their mind about almost anything. Well, in returning the remark, the other YB slurred. Mind your language sirs. People are watching.
If the Dewan Rakyat
continues to allow such remarks being made, I think everyone should move to the market to speak. On the other hand, I laud the effort by the government, especially Pak Lah on the policy to erradicate corruption throught the zero tolerance motto and other efforts initiated by the man. Erradicate is too strong a word, reduction suits it better.
Well, in view of freedom of expression
, I boldly say all these. I believe we should have our rights to exercise this freedom so long as we don't disrupt the balance of the volatile nature our racial unity lies on. I believe in preserving the unity we enjoy. Fight corruption, strengthen unity. Pray for our nation, leaders and people.
