Lim Guan Eng ‘Flip-Flop’ed

It seems the Pakatan Rakyat never put their money where their mouth is. In Malay, “Cakap tak serupa bikin” (Put his money where his mouth is). Case in point is Penang Chief Minister YAB Lim Guan Eng’s stance on the Official Secrets Act (OSA).

This is The Sun’s report on the story:

Penang probe into secrets leak

by Opalyn Mok

GEORGE TOWN (May 12, 2009): Chief Minister  Lim Guan Eng said today a probe in underway to flush out the culprits responsible for leaking confidential information from the state government’s offices.


“During the previous state legislative assembly, it seemed that the Opposition was privy to some details including the minutes of the state executive councillors’ meeting which are supposed to be confidential, so there is a leak of information,” he said.

Lim said immediately after the state assembly, the state secretary had initiated investigations to uncover the leaks, adding that stern action will be taken against whoever found to have leaked information to outsiders.

While categorically stating that the state government has nothing to hide and that it was not worried about the Opposition having such information , Lim said he was more worried about other information being leaked out to interested parties for profit or benefit of other parties, especially business interests.

“I wish to remind all civil servants that they are under the Official Secrets Act (OSA) oath and they should know that they must not leak confidential information to outsiders,” he told a press conference after four of his new special assistants took the OSA oath at his office.


However, like everything else about Pakatan Rakyat, there is never consistency on their policies. Not long ago, in a matter of fact, hardly two weeks ago, the DAP Chairman was against the OSA. This is what was chronicled in DAP-puppet former Perak MB Dato’ Seri Mohd. Nizar Jamaluddin’s blog.

Pakatan Rakyat leaders just pick-and-choose what ever and when ever anything and everything is convenient to them. Now that Lim as a Chief Executive of a State Government finds the convenience of the OSA, they are all for it. When they are back as full time Oppositions, they vehemently are against it.

OSA is the second most dreaded “draconian” law, after the Internal Security Act (ISA). We here at BigDogDotCom are willing to bet: If and when PR gains control of the Federal Government fully, they would find it useful and religiously defend the law.

  3. mat t of May 14, 2009 at 6:18 pm;

    You scared mat?

    You mutt … oh yes, sorry, I forgot. All forms of truth scares the shit out of PR-see-no-evil-hear-no-evil-do-no-evil.

    To avoid being caught by truth, they start to flip-flop now. Good time too. Al least it is good for the confidence of PR voters .. if any.

    Heh heh.

  4. dal you sound like another parpu to me muahahahaha.

    • well better parpu than mati

  5. Moron.

    Dig dog? Yeah, barking for UMNO eh. IPCMC must be implemented. OSA, ISA and all draconian laws should be removed. Otherwise, how will this country move forward?

    Only morons like you would choose to retain these medieval age laws.

    • Hey Moron. Can read english ke tak? Mmg orang PR ni x reti membaca or refused to read whts not for them. Bunch of cult!

    • medieval age?

      Then UK & USA had gone back to Medieval Age

      UK Anti-terror Act at-a-glance

      Detention without trial

      The home secretary gets the power to detain suspected international terrorists without trial where their deportation is not possible.

      The indefinitely renewable internments required part of the Human Rights Act to be set aside, which meant the home secretary had to deem the UK to be in a state of public emergency.

      Detained suspects will have their cases reviewed by the Special Immigration Appeals Commission, whose status was raised as one of the government’s concessions.

  6. Quote: “The fact that you have the ISA and OSA (shows that) you want to frighten the people,” Lim Guan Eng told a press conference at the Mount Miriam Hospital “Ho Chiak” Charity Food and Fun Fair in Penang.


    and we thought only abdullah had this disease

  7. Hey all doggie lovers,

    I presume most of you folks are not politicians, hence do not understand how OSA comes into play. So, instead of barking around this write up, do some homework and go read/ understand what is required from politicians when they take office.

    Aside to the saying “Cakap Tak Serupa Bikin”, well, as it rightly is a Malay saying, it’s sort of the pot calling the kettle black don’t you think so ?

    Bunch of losers…Get a life and write something worthwhile lah…

    • Hi Christoper,

      Only mumbling and grumbling. No point to be issued. PR mentallity.

  8. Hujah seorang Bodoh bernama LGEng.

    Usaha hapuskan kemiskinan Penang dlm setahun gagal kerana BN.

  9. Many people change after tasting the fruits of power!

  10. OSA is the second most dreaded draconian law after ISA?

    I think the sedition act is. Then there is the printing & presses act etc

    Where are you getting this? That the OSA is the 2nd most dreaded draconian law?

    • Sans… you read Malaysia-Today too much.. Is that all you know? Sedition Act and also printing&presses act??

      I believe those 2 Acts are the most common acts inserted by Raja Petra The Compulsive Liar into his Article.

      You are a joke…

      Stupid Stupid PR supporters.

      Anyway Bro Big Dog..

      I think Emergency Ordinance is the 2nd most dreaded draconian law compared to ISA.

      • Sorry.

        I mean compared to OSA.

      • Thanks

        EO was before ISA. That was when we had no Constitution yet. After ISA was enacted, EO was never repealed. Its the same law, for the same purpose.

  11. Never trust all these lizards, they changes spot very often. Their colours depend on the wall they are on. Principles are only vehicle they ride to get to their target.Somebody said the other day that he is the judge, jury and executioner all at the same time. On the heavenly side, they used money to buy votes too!

    Meanwhile somewhere in the center of the universe, they are only registering panel of contractors that are vouched /certifed by their aduns only. Isnt that cronysm they opposed so much???

  12. He’s the Cheap Minister of Penang , except that the senile father is getting worse telling Malaysians that May 13 should be replaced by May 7 ? Arsehole LKS

  13. I like your last statement Big Bro. Please spare my bet, will you.

  14. Hi BigPuppy,

    Yopu used the Word “Flip Flop”. I guessed he caught the Flip Flop Virus from Badawi….Now Najib is having it too…It’s the Pananti Flip Flop….

    Listen Mate…The Country’s Flip Flopping, especially in Perak! heh heh

  15. Teruskan menulis. Teruskan mendedah tembelang2 DAP dan Pakatan menipu Rakyat ni!

  16. Bozo, the heck with Penang and I guess Umno can leave Penang as it is. No need to do more barking as me very sure ma..BN cannot get Penang least for another round of GE. As for Perak, you can tell the Umno people be brave and win the rakyat heart. Go for the kill..let the Perak people choose. The more Umno prolong this, the more damaging it will be and rest assured GE13 BN will lose 3 more states if not become an opposition. Btw TDM predicted if any by election from now..BN sure going to lose..and loose. Your strategy here barking in the cyberworld is good, but what the hell, it’s the majority of non cyber people that matter most as they are the one going to vote. People like you, never knew what ‘life difficulities’ means as you are brought up silver spoon. I guess it’s better for you to give and express fairer comments in your cage. After it’s only been a year since PR took over a few states, and still some BN stooges doing sabotaging here and there. How come I didn’t here you barking on Trengganu? Is Perlis still around? Who is Perlis MB anyway?? I heard the name of Mat Sabu or is it Isa Samad? Gosh look how the BN works..cheers
