Anwar-Shabery Debate Comment By David W.W. Chong

Even though I am not a ardent fan of Anwar, but I still
believe this present BN government ought to be replaced
democratically in the next general election, not through
the cross-overs of BN fools or the bringing down of govt
leaders through statutory declarations. And looks like BN
is so afraid of Anwar that it over-reacts everytime Anwar

When Syed Hamid Albar smelt Anwar's fart of
demonstration, he also blamed others like Guan Eng, Kit
Siang for the fart as well. And he deployed police all
over KL and turned it into a war-zone like city. When asked
for the info on DAP involvement in meetings planning for
the demo, he said this is classified police intelligence.
Guan Eng has challenged him to prove it but he maintained
his stand with no proof to show! Imagine we have such a
minister of internal security!! Please click and read

People were late for work. Time is money! Cars stuck in
jam, burning more fuel! That's money too!

That is why all of us need to be patient but make sure we
do the right thing the next general election i.e. vote in
an alternative govt and make a 2-party system a reality in
Malaysia. If the ruling govt cannot function well, then
we vote in the other one the next time round. This is what
I term as political maturity.

The Anwar-Shabery debate just went on to show how naive
and ridiculous BN govt we have, coming from the spokesman
of the govt, minister of information. or rather
misinformation! Want to know what I on...

These are my rebuttal points and it's up to you
whether they make sense or need statutory

The BN govt had always blamed the opposition of being
rhetoric, which to a certain extent, I agree. But, what
about BN themselves. All Penangites, please remember, just
days before the last general election, Pak Lah, Soh Chai Dr
(Keng Yaik) and other big BN fools made a special
appearance in Penang, just to give rhetoric speeches
to hit out at Anwar personally, realising they are losing
the political grip on Penang. But the flip-flop PM asked
much before that, who is Anwar!! Ok, fine, one can
still agree with that as it is a political campaign. But
the debate yesterday suppose to be on an economical issue
of fuel price increase and inflation. But, instead of
explaining what the govt is planning to do to overcome the
current crisis, the so-called minister stoop so low to
attack Anwar as a person and politician by being rhetoric,
bringing up the past issues in 1974, 1997, and recent
past protests and demonstrations. During introduction,
middle and wrap-up of the debate, Shabery, repeated his
rhetorics, not only once but 3 times!! Hello
no-brainer...we the people want to know about our
future...not about your bloody fear of Anwar...don't
fear him...fear us the People!! Since the debate is
one-hour long, I have selected some short clips just to
prove my point. Otherwise, I will be blamed for slander!!
Click and watch 1)
2) 3)
The govt fool went on to say that the petrol subsidy is
further removed so that it will not benefit the rich and
foreigners. But, doesn't it burden the poor too. With
an expected inflation rate increase from 3% to 6% (Bank
Negara own projection) or to 8% (MIER projection), the poor
will suffer much more, right??!! What happened to the
earlier govt proposal of differentiating the price of
different grades of petrol, so that the rich pay for more
if they want and the poor pay less?? As usual, the govt
flip-flopped and abandoned the idea!! Now let me share with
a truth nothing but the truth (no need sumpah!!). In
Singapore, the prices of fuel is SGD2.213 for 92-Octane,
SGD 2.246 for 95-Octane and SGD2.32 for 98-Octane and
SGD2.033 for diesel. First, the prices are differentiated.
Second, they are RELATIVELY cheaper than us. I know when
I say this, bloody BN fools will whack me and tell me to
convert into RM. To all the bloody BN fools, is a
manager's salary of RM5,000 equals SGD5,000. So, when
compare relatively based on one-to-one, the price of
fuel in Singapore is cheaper. To be specific for
comparison, Malaysian petrol costs RM2.70 and diesel costs
Our minister of information, shared the information to
compare Norway and Finland, where subsidy is not
given, with Malaysia!! This bloody comparison has no basis
at all! Let me correct this misinformation! Norway has the
world 6th highest national income per capita of USD53,000
while Finland is USD35,300. I, for one, don't mind oil
price hike if the income is that high. But Malaysia's
per capita income is just USD13,300 and the govt wants to
remove big chunk of the subsidy, if not all! But what the
heck are the ruling BN fools do to improve the economy to
that level that justifies removal of subsidies?! Common
lah, stupid fool, compare apple with apple, not apple with
empty-coconut-head like you!! Shabery Cheek didn't have
to cheek to quote any figures to back his argument! Let me
refer you to facts and figures, click

Then the cheekless minister compared with Venezuela and
Iran, where he insisted that the prices of fuel is very
cheap but inflation is still very high. My God! What a
stupid, baseless and preposterous comparison from a
misinformed or simply ignorant minister of information!!
There is this US arms embargo and an unofficial trade
embargo against Venezuela and trade embargo against Iran.
Surely with embargoes, the price level will
be high.
Let me assure you, the BN govt being fools themselves
will think Shabery did a good job and won the debate
and can stay on as minister of information because fools
seldom differ!! Let the fools claim this cheap victory for
now but just make sure we make them taste the costly
defeat in the next general election!

If you agree with me, please forward as widely as possible
to all Malaysians. If not, just delete it! It's a free
country and I respect your stand.


May the Force of Change be with us!!
