The Singaporeans’ agenda?

The Singaporeans are at it again. This time, they connivingly want to pit newly sworn in Prime Minister VI Dato’ Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak against the wish of Prime Minister IV Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, who has time and again voiced very critically against PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Dato’ Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi ‘Flip-Flop’ decision on the Scenic Bridge (replacing the Johor Causeway) project.

The Straits Times has the story:

Bridge project no rush

Any review of plan to be decided only after talks with Singapore, he says

By Hazlin Hassan, Malaysia Correspondent

 

KUALA LUMPUR – PRIME Minister Najib Razak on Monday said the government was in no rush to revive an aborted ‘crooked bridge’ project in Johor.

‘I don’t know what is the point of reviving the crooked bridge project.’
Political analyst Agus Yusoff
‘The bridge will be a landmark for Johor Baru to attract more tourists to the city.’
Johor Baru Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Soh Poh Sheng

Datuk Seri Najib told Johor Umno at a closed-door meeting that any review of the scrapped plan would be decided only after discussions with Singapore, an influential state leader who attended the meeting told The Straits Times.

Mr Najib’s comments indicate that he does not want a crooked bridge to replace the ageing Causeway that links Malaysia to Singapore, said the state leader.

He said it could also be a sign that Mr Najib wants to make his own decision and not to simply agree with former premier Mahathir Mohamad, who first mooted the idea of the crooked bridge.

‘He’s showing him who’s the boss.’

Earlier on Monday, two Johor lawmakers said a new bridge should be built but it should be a normal, straight one.

Johor Baru MP Shahrir Samad said Malaysia and Singapore should work together to build a straight bridge.

He said many Johoreans were ‘hopeful that our new Prime Minister and Cabinet will revive the crooked bridge project’.

‘(But) the public must understand that bilateral ties between both countries will suffer if the project is revived,’ he said.

Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed, also a Johor lawmaker, said Tun Dr Mahathir had hopes of reviving the crooked bridge project now that Mr Najib has taken over as Prime Minister, replacing Tun Abdullah Badawi, who was against it.

********************

Tun Dr. Mahathir vehemently against PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah abrupt cancellation of the Scenic Bridge two years ago. Especially when PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah lied about Johoreans not wanting the bridge project.

We in BigDogDotCom doubt the purpose for this reporting. The suspicion is not without an ulterior motive to pit the two Malaysian leaders, who have been known to have great relationship, to go against each other on a politically sensitive project. Infact, Tun Dr. Mahathir as a Statesman time and again defended PM Dato’ Seri Najib openly, against malicious lies thrown to doubt his credibility and integrity.

Dr M slams anti-Najib stories

 

KUALA LUMPUR – FORMER Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad accused the international media on Tuesday of trying to demonise Malaysia’s new leader, who is battling opposition accusations of links to corruption and murder.

Mr Mahathir’s defense of Prime Minister Najib Razak reflects concerns within the ruling party that the leader’s reputation has been tarnished because of unproven allegations by political adversaries.

Mr Mahathir said many articles published in the Western media when Mr Najib took power earlier this month were ‘anti-Najib stories’ that highlighted the accusations against him.

‘From France to Britain to Australia, the articles are identical and carried the same message,’ Mr Mahathir wrote on his blog. ‘I cannot believe that this demonisation by so many at the same time is a coincidence.’

Mr Mahathir – a strident critic of the Western media during his 22 years as prime minister before stepping down in 2003 – said Najib should brace himself for more foreign criticism, but added that it was ultimately with Malaysians ‘that Mr Najib has to clear his name.’

Mr Mahathir holds no government post, but still commands wide respect and his views often receive attention from leaders and members of the ruling party.

The prime minister recently said he has been a victim of personal attacks in the media, referring to allegations by opposition leaders and bloggers that he was involved in a shady government contract to buy submarines from France.

He has also been accused of links to the murder of a Mongolian woman, who was the estranged lover of Mr Najib’s friend. He has denied the allegations.

If the Singaporeans are able to cause a perception there exist a rift between the two via media, then all the detractors of the Malaysian Federal Government and ruling party, shall benefit. Especially Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders, namely former power-abuse-convict Anwar Ibrahim, whose strategy to rise to power is thorugh discrediting PM Dato’ Seri Najib with consistent malicious and unstantiated lies. Never the less, some Malaysians, especially the younger generation and iternet savvy news addicts shown that they actually ‘bought’ into these fictitous slanders.

Conveniently, Penang Chief Minister who is also DAP Secretary General met Singapore Prime Minister Brig. Gen. (NS) Lee Hsien Loong, who is also the PAP leader, over the weekend in Singapore.

Channel News Asia has the story:

 

 

Penang Chief Minister meets

PM Lee
By Teo Chia Leen, Channel NewsAsia | Posted: 18 April 2009 1325 hrs  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SINGAPORE: Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, who is in Singapore to meet investors, called on Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Friday.
A statement by the Prime Minister’s Office on Saturday said the two discussed the regional economic situation and opportunities for business collaboration between Singapore and Penang at the Istana.
It added that the meeting is in line with Singapore’s efforts to nurture friendly ties with Malaysia, both at the national level and also with the Malaysian states.
Mr Lee told the Chief Minister that he encouraged more links and economic exchanges between Singapore and Penang, and said he welcomed Singapore to invest more in Penang.
Mr Lim was accompanied by Deputy Chief Minister for Penang Prof P Ramasamy, and MP for Bukit Bendera Liew Chin Tong.  

 

 

************************

For the record, DAP is a spinoff of PAP, which was left behind after the expulsion of state from Federation of Malaysia on 9 August 1965 for dishonouring a gentelmens’ agreement between Malaysian Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra and Lee Kuan Yew. DAP had continued to carry on the legacy of anti-Malay chauvisnitic policies of PAP, till present day and they are now an integral part of PR.

The same article also quoted former Domestic Trade and Consumer Minister Dato’ Shahrir Samad’s thoughts that Malaysia should work with Singapore on the Scenic Bridge proposal. Three years ago when the Johorean public outcry against the abrupt decision to cancel the Scenic Bridge, Shahrir’s stance was the opposite. Did Shahrir change his mind now or its the Singaporeans who are trying to stir up the shit-storm, especially Johor is heart and mainstay of UMNO support in Malaysia?

Lets follow any further developments on this and other issues relating somewhat ‘deferring’ thoughst and stance between PM Dato’ Seri Najib and Tun Dr. Mahathir and how it would be played and spun. Our guess is, it will be colourful.

  1. Well, when your adversaries start to get nervous, kelam-kabut and reacted negatively, then you know that you are doing something right. The opposition wanted Pak Lah to stay but they get really restless when DSN assumed the PM’ship. And it seems that someone gets even more nervous and jumpy when the doctor entered the arena. So we know who they are actually afraid of.

    I just want to be a proud Malaysian again even if Batu Putih is no longer part of her.

  2. Big Dog,

    Singapore’s soldier loved the shallow and static water of Johor Straits.

    I like the shallow argument saying that this objection to bridge building is another Chinese government of Singapore’s agenda to lord over the ball-less Johorian.

    That could be the one and only explanation why the bridge was never built. Yeah, ball-less Johorian.

    Chinese can go back to mainland China. Quit acting as ah long mafioso gangster in our malay Archipelagos heartland.

    Go to hell. Quick.

  3. So many conspiracies, so many plots…only BigDog has the talent to think so wide and so detailed? By the way, who actually murdered Altantuya and why is Baginda and Althanuya’names censored. Care to answer.

    Sure.

    The Shah Alam criminal court found CI Azilah and Corp Sirul Azhar gulity of murdering Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu.

    It was the same High Court Judge who let Razak Baginda as a freeman. Unless anyone would dare to say the judge was incompetent/bias/unsound mind/corrupt. Otherwise, this is the verdict.

    There was no other testimony on stand under oath to prove with substantiated evidence, beyond reasonable doubt that the murderers were these two UTK Policemen.

    If Anwar Ibrahim, Raja Petra, Susan Loone REALLY CARED for the lives of these two persons, then they should produce the evidence in court, on the stand under oath.

    Funny, NONE OF THE DEFENSE LAWYERS (who are renown in their work) of these two accused ever called or even suggested any of these ‘witnesses’ who claimed they have damning evidence to implicate other persons!

  4. BD one day when the truth is out my only hope is that MALAYSIA IS SAVED from all the scum of this wonderful land.BD for the future generations to come including your’s n mine let the truth be heard. GOT BLESS MY MALAYSIA MY COUNTRY.

  5. Singapork will always be Singapork. When the tap ran dry, just drink the urine’s newwater.

  6. Many UMNO bastards cannot live down the day they f”’ stupidly lost a big chunk of Melayu territory in 1965. Not only did Singapore survive the kick they now have a military second to none in Southeast Asia. Maybe these UMNO bastards would like to go over and kick out the PAP. They want the Malays to think that Singaporeans are against the interest of Malaysia in the bridge issue.

    Listen orang Melayu.

    UMNO turned Singapore into a sovereign state. All independent countries have the right to look after their own interest first and foremost. If the Malays do not like it then ask UMNO who kicked Singapore out of the Confederation to take Singapore back. If UMNO do not have the balls then stop turning the bridge issue into a Chinese-Malay issue. The Chinese do not wish to be blamed for UMNO’s stupidity in losing Singapore.

    Nizar is right UMNO are nothing more than a bunch of pondans. They have the balls to threaten the non-Malays in Malaysia with their kris and ‘pendatang’ shit. Instead of the kris why don’t UMNO place a few of the army’s 155mm cannons facing Singapore along the Southern coast of Johore. Then broadcast the kissing of these cannons to Singapore via RTM. No, UMNO does not have the balls here, not against the most formidable military machine in SEA.

  7. BD,

    GUESS WHO ????

  8. Old Vinnan Koliang babi hutan balik india hisap jubur koliang pukimak lu. Balik India kasi hisap lu punya pelir dengan itu pelacur yang tenun jut. Ko boleh balik India buat rumah ko dengan tanah liat. Plaster baik-baik. Kalau tak kering dinding tanah liat tu, jangan cat dulu, nanti tak melekat cat tu. Kalau pakai cat, pastikan pakai sealer made in Batu Caves, pakai air dari kelapa pecah taipusam bodoh. Kalau lu balik India jangan lupa bawa saudara2 koliang ko, nanti takde cheap labor nak build your clay house. Jangan lupa pakai satu lapis sealer undercoat before you apply the first layer of primer. Kalau boleh kasi prime putih ngko punya muka dengan warnwarna pelangi so that you look like a rainbow. Dan lagi jangan lupa bawa pelacur pelakun wayang takde parti tu sekali. Kalau balik India lu bawa dia pacak dia kat tanah, jadikan dia scaffolding so that you can build your clay house mixed with cow dung. Otherwise, you may not be able to reach the attic end of the cow dung house in India where you are suppose to go back. Ok lah Koliang Vinnan, harap lu berambus cepat dari bumi ni bawa pelacur tu sekali, buat rumah tanah liat you kat India, jangan lupa ya, pakai satu lapis sealer sebelum cat.

  9. Johnny Said, UMNO pondan memang pondan. Tipu orang Melayu salahkan lain orang. Jangan ingat orang bukan Melayu bodoh. Kami tak ada niat langsung terlibat dalam kepondanan UMNO bila menghadapi musuh yang kuat. UMNO mati ke, hidup ke, pondan ke bukan hal orang bukan Melayu. UMNO yang silap dalam kehilangan Singapure dan Pedra Branca. Kami tak akan membiarkan UMNO melibatkan orang bukan Melayu dalam politik najis UMNO. Saya tidak benci orang Melayu malah saya ada kawan-kawan Melayu. Tetapi saya tak mahu terlibat dengan najis UMNO.

  10. Kenapa orang Ameno suka-suka berlaga dengan Republika Kiasuland? Dengki ke?

  11. Dear Old Vinnan,

    You want another salvo? Like you, I also have very good imagination. You know….
    Kalau tak suka Orang UMNO tak payah datang sini. I notice you go hopping blog to blog and get smashed daily? Believe it or not, all of the blogs are by UMNO people.
    I warn you again not to meddle in our affairs. Koliang stay off side.

  12. Big Dog

    I just don’t understand why our people are glorifying Singapore.
    If you hear them talk, Singapore is non-pareil in education, military, trade, quality of life and the lists go on.
    Tell me what quality of life?
    You wear designer suits, Lous Vitton briefcase, get down from the MRT to a narrow path leading to your HDB flats.
    You don’t have a say let alone condemning the government or the PAP like we Malaysians can.
    They are silemced like robots.
    Only can shop, shop, shop.
    For the Singaporean Malays, its a flat at Geylang, work in a high-end boutique or offices owned by the Chinese and on Sunays strum the guitar at Marine Parade.
    Thank God for this beautiful and blessed nation.

    • Yes, you are right.

      I was in Singapore over the weekend. I saw some aspect of Singaporean Malays in destitute.

      On Sunday Times, it featured a story about how there exist Malay families who live in tents (because they are so poor) and their children dont attend school.

      When I prayed at Masjid Sultan in North Bridge Rd, there are countless of Malay beggars outside the gates. Some, was begging for a meal!

      The truth is that, there exist similar Art 153 (special position and provisions of the Malays) of our Federation of Malaysia Consitution in the Singaporean Constitution. Check out Art 152. However, the PAP Government simply ignore this provision and refuse to implement it.

  13. Hey Johnny Said,

    I am not interested in UMNO’s affairs. I just do not want your shit politics screwing up my life. What gives you the right to mess around with my life with your politics.

  14. Hello Vinnan Pariah,..

    Next time jst say UMNO la,..dun hav to include d words Melayu as its not rite fer Malays like me who dun vote but follow d party dat govern Malaysia.. hav u ever heard ppl mention MIC as Hindu MIC or Hindu Hindraf, no rite.. dey only say Hindu Pariah n its suits ur type if u keepon doin d same mistake hopping frm one blog to anothr calling Malays d way u did,.. pls la guna otak skit.. dun b too racist due to ur hatred for ur own stupidity n failure to b successful.. if ur unhappy with things jst get d fork out of Malaysia to eithr Singapore, Australia or ur own HOMELAND INDIA… sory bro Biggy,..mamat ni kerap sangat hina Melayu ni,..heheh,..wat else can I say,..(“,)

    p.s. sory to othr Indian as dis is jst fer Vinnan,.. who mite b or mite not b an Indian,..heheh..

  15. Dear Big Dog

    Thanks for enligthening the special position of the Malays in Singapore.
    It should be an eye-opener for us Malaysians.
    Here the non-malays are clamouring for similar status as Bumis with regard to education for example.
    And Najib is giving them all the favours in line with IMalaysia.
    Are they grateful? No. If you see blogs by Susan Loone, Zorro Unmasked, for example, its nothing but condemnation against our government.
    I dread to think if our givernment treats them like the PAP did to the Temasek Malays.
    Do the Malays get into NUS or Nanyang?
    No. But Malays are realistic and we know our place.

  16. LMAO, the spinmaster is at it again.

    Failing to find any valid economic or commercial reasons to present to the public why the crooked bridge needs to be built at all, UMNO and its mouthpieces now try to whip the people into an anti-Singapore frenzy to justify the bridge. Another opportunity to pour billions of taxpayer ringgit into the pockets of UMNO cronies. Syabas UMNO!.

  17. All race-based parties in Malaysia are chauvinistic, else they wouldn’t be race-based.

    cheers
