Party for a Grand EXIT? BN/UMNO try to bait Penang State by reinstating Penang Free Port Status as reported by The Star newspaper today. Anyway, in the first place it was BN/UMNO who robbed Penang of her Free Port Status!
It was BN/UMNO who punished Penang when Gerakan ( was in the oppositon back then) won in the early 1970s. Overnight most if not , all forwarding companies relocated to Singapore in order to survive. Now BN/UMNO try to use the old trick in reverse to woo Penang voters? Dream on. Penang people can't be a fool twice!
Overnight, thousands were jobless. The then Chief Minister , Dr. Lim Chong Eu started the Free Trade Zone offering Pioneer Status to attract foreign investors which was a run-away success from BN/UMNO e****mic strangle of the people of Penang.
As if not enough, BN/UMNO again strangle Penang's e ****my by banning Taiwanese Tuna Fishing Fleet from landing their catch . The vicious cycle of BN/UMNO strangle took its toll. People became jobless in the Tuna Fishing Industry. Same repercussion, the Tuna fishing Fleet made Singapore their base . Thus , giving Singapore another BN/UMNO bonus.
Too many constraints were placed in Penang State , Dr. Lim Chong Eu' s Gerakan Party finally succumbed to BN/UMNO's dirty tricks and joined BN for the sake of the People of Penang.
Now with Lim Guan Eng at the helm, steering Penang to the path of Glory, ( see the change in Penang) Clean, efficient and most of all transparent " Open Tender System" for all Government Projects.
Can BN/UMNO do that with no cronies tagging along? If YES , start with Federal Government Projects" to proof yourself worthy and sincere of your mandate. In any case and for that matter, Penang never want any BN/UMNO offer of Free Port Status.
It is doubtful, BN/UMNO can do that. With no money politics , BN/UMNO surely collapse under its own weight. BN/UMNO's survival is based on Kick-Back from cronies , that is what foreign Diplomats perceived. If ever those diplomats are wrong, at least Malaysian politicians are living in Multi Million RM palatial homes. Doesn't that ring a bell ?
Free Port for Penang : YES when PKR's Anwar stroll into Putra Jaya. NOT BN/UMNO's Penang Free Port ! Got it ?
Andainya benda percuma datang dengan syarat2 BN/UMNO tak payah membazir. Jaga lah kroni yang siap sedia, suap hingga mereka muntah. Kan lebih senang?
Malaysia, Tanah Air Yang Kita Cinta. Salam Sejatera.
