CLICKING MALAYSIAKINI: on SUPP and Tan Sri Ting Pek Khiing

So in the end everyone is trying to be honest and straight forward on many issues. Politics in Malaysia has reached its apex a few months after Abdullah Badawi got in. It flourishes beyond limit each time national media exposed incompetencies in its machinery. Since Selangor is right in the centre of all happennings, every flash flood, every blocked drain and poor counter service on Khir Toyo's backyards are well exposed. Karam Singh Walia with his Mr Know and Expose All image, yelled with highest tolerable decibels. Malaysiakini has opened up a point to discuss on Sarawak and its kenyalangs

Tycoon shames Supp, goes after RM3 mil debt

RM3 million can be considered pocket change for prominent tycoon Ting Pek Khiing but why did he pursue the debt owed to his company by a Chinese school board in such a fashion?

Ting might have tried to use his contributions to the party as a leverage but the party might not have acquiesced to his requests or demands.

SUPP vows to raise RM2.8mil to open school

On Thursday, Global Upline adviser Tan Sri Ting Pek Khiing had padlocked the school gates because the party still owed the company money for building the ...

2. After a while, image of the government is well tarnished. I call it misguided transparency! I call it absurd openess. When flaws were exposed, without any meaningful counter strategies, Abdullah is holding a poor and flawed government! Then one may wish to suggest who are really behind all these. Oh, another retrospect.....

3. Then we witness politics being manipulated beyond belief. Streets are no more for its intended purpose as transportation network. Streets become political platform. Bersih and Hindraf had used it. DAP had used it. PKR had mauled it. As Sloone mentioned in her little blog, even leafleting was tried as street politicking. Where are we heading?

4. Soon, Sarawakians will rush to polling booth to exercise their democratic right. SUPP is there. Pehin Seri Taib Mahmud will obviously be there. Anwar makes it clear that he will not be hiding behind some sweet little young fella there.

5. There will be killing spree for a bounty! Sarawak has been like USA years ago. Concept of patronising is well defined there. Tycoons are major sponsors for political chess game. Tan Sri Ting Pek Khiing is not the only one. They are strong and impenetrable. Even Anwar will succumb!

The issue must be seen in this light. I am sure, there will be more to come.
