We all know politicians speak with “forked-tongues”. But let us not forget that they speak to the rakyats to get their message across. Real or perceived, we all get a different message. No one likes to hear that Malaysia is going bankrupt in 10 years time or it is going to be “belt tightening time again, after all that does not win votes for UMNO. The reality of the matter is that NO ONE wants to “bell the cat”, we all want everything and we all want it now, therefore the politicians have been “kicking the beer can” down the road, hoping that by some magical wave Malaysia’s financial troubles would be solved by the creation of some 100 storey mega tower. It seems there would be a spin-off and 5 Billion spent would benefit all the poor in Kuala Lumpur. What rubbish!
Let me tell Premier Najib right now, wake up and smell the debt! This is not going to happen. Our resources are depleting at a great speed. Malaysia’s debts last year stands at RM 362.39 BILLION. You can ask your Younger Brother Nazir.
UMNO and Barisan National are all guilty of spending like drunken sailors, without regard of tomorrow. Well now its tomorrow and our children have to pay the piper. Deal with it.
No one man or government could do what the past government under Dr Mahathir for 22 years have done without consequences. This is record. Dr Mahathir’s government have squandered and raped the country, they have encouraged or turned a blind eye to corruption, they spent our money because in their minds it was not theirs, it was the “government’s” to do as they pleased. But in reality it was “OURS” and we should have thrown them out from government a long time ago instead of just accepting this waste and corruption. So in all respects we are to blame. We lost countless BILLIONS. Petronas money just evaporated in thin air. Thanks to Dr Mahathir for that.
We have been brainwashed to follow the government’s example of spending more than we earn. This was Dr Mahathir’s hallmark for 22 years. Now 2010, the disease is so widespread. And Najib is following his Mentor’s example.
Well now the bill is due and we have to pay the piper. It’s RM 14 thousand each one of us owe. Yes, RM14,000 to be exact and you can times it by 26 million people.
So my friends, don’t expect the government or politicians to become our saviour, we have to save ourselves by hard work and living within our means. We have to demand that the government do the same and give us value for the money they spend in every thing they do in our name.
So, No more MEGA MEGA PROJECTS!
So lets start now. This is the petition to our Premier Najib Tun Razak to Abolish the Proposed Development of 100 Storey Mega Tower in Kuala Lumpur. I have signed and I’m number 1697. Please do your part by signing too.
To: The Prime Minister and Government of Malaysia
The Prime Minister of Malaysia on 15 October 2010 during his tabling of the Budget 2011 in the Parliament has announced to build the Warisan Merdeka, which will be undertaken by Permodalan Nasional Berhad. This is an integrated development comprising a 100 storey tower, which will be the tallest building in Malaysia, replacing the 88 storey Kuala Lumpur City Centre. The total projected cost of the project is RM5billion and the 100 storey tower is expected to be completed by 2015. Development of the entire project is scheduled to go on until 2020.
