Rocky's alert led me to the Bernama report in the New Straits Times yesterday that the Labu LCCT proposal is still on. Highly paid and decorated postman, Dr Sulaiman Mahbob confirmed in the report.
As suspected before, game is not over. This would definately blow the top of the public. The public appreciate a new LCCT thinking it would alleviate the congestion problem which is Tony's own doing but blamed on MAB.
The aviation professionals fear the danger posed of having another Airport very close to KLIA. The cheap skate bugger Tony doesn't care for safety. He is perceived as taking opportunity from the 'midnight regulation'.
In the TV9 Hujah, Khairy aired many populist views which were different from his position, attitude and outburst in the past throughout the reign of Pak Lah 2004-2009. The Labu LCCT is not a popular issue with a significant segment of the public.
I wonder what would be his position now?
This blog have been picking and arguing the non-viability of Tony's proposal and leaked of Khairy's illegal errand Air Asia. Tony has shot Khairy down. As a man with brass balls and future Prime Minster before 40, Khairy must show he can dish back insult.
Perwakilan Pemuda not only love to be treated to a RM27,000 karoake session for 17 of their pal and a great orator as a leader, they want to see leader that voice their views in the open, and berani belasah leader in the mould of Mukhriz, Khir Toyo and Ibrahim Ali. Did I say Mukhriz and Khir Toyo ... provoke provoke snigger snigger.
Imagine three birds with one stone and silencing that pesky irritant of A Voice from Another Brick in the Wall? Kasi tahu sama cip, Wenger. This is one I wouldn't mind conceding Khairy to steal the show.
The Proposal for Labu LCCT still under discussion
New Straits Times, 2009/02/20
The proposal for a new low cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Labu, Negri Sembilan, is still under discussion between the government and related parties, the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) director general Tan Sri Dr Sulaiman Mahbob said. He said the government had approved the project in principle as it was viewed as a form of private sector investment but there was a need for concerned parties to study the matter with respect to all technical and safety requirements.
"This must be done and the Ministry of Transport consulted on the technical requirements," he said after delivering a talk on the current economic crisis here today.
He said this when asked to comment on the current status of the proposal to set up the new LCCT.
Recently, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said a final decision has not been made on whether to proceed with or scrap the proposal to build the LCCT in Labu.
In a written reply to Loke Siew Fook (DAP – Rasah) in Parliament, he said a detailed and comprehensive study was being done to ensure that the project was feasible and would benefit the people.
However, Ong said, AirAsia Bhd would have to bear the cost of building the new LCCT, as well as include connectivity costs such as road-construction and rail tracks and other infrastructure. - BERNAMA
