Federal Territory Minister, Tengku Dato Adnan Mansor's confusing statement had led to 507,000 letters received by DBKL as at 12 noon yesterday and only 80,000 protested the DBKL valuation understood it as an increase in quit rent.
In a rather loud manner here and sounding like a nut case, he clarified. Either he is deaf or he thinks everyone else is deaf. What is the problem with speaking softly? Was the problem created get solved by a higher volume of statement or proper message conveyed?
Ku Nan claimed the public did not understand him when the real problem was his earlier gangster-like gung ho and insistent statements only misled the public. If he had communicated properly, 507,000 people would not want to waste their time sending letters.
A case of an obtuse cabinet member too indifferent to the feeling and thinking of his constituencies. Ku Nan must admit the fault is his for misleading the public and his arrogant looking attitude.
His nutty ways had been around long but there is no need to dig up the past. There was an earlier occasion of nuttiness as reported by left leaning news portal FMT here.
We'll just extract the essence of the FMT report:
BN to do away with simple majority system?Is the report misleading or his arrogant manner mislead the public again?
December 15, 2013
The Barisan Nasional might just do away with its colossal consensus system and replace it with a simple majority system in making decisions.
BN secretary-general Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the BN constitution should be amended so that all decisions can be made using a majority vote against the consensus system practiced now.
“If a coalition party does not agree to a proposal then it will not be pursued.
“I, as the BN Secretary suggest that BN review and amend the BN Constitution by using a simple majority, I have informed Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, who is also BN chairman, of this matter,” he said after the launch of the 21st General Assembly of the All Malaysian Indian Progressive Front Party (IPF) in Seri Kembangan, near here, today.
Tengku Adnan said this in response to a request by IPF president M.Sambanthan in his speech at the party gathering that BN receive IPF as a component party.
Read on the Bernama report here.
By him asking BN to amend the BN Constitution so as decisions are made based on a simple majority than the current practise of consensus, he is giving an answer to please IPF but the answer will give a misleading perception on BN.
If decisions are based on simple majority, political parties with large members like UMNO, MCA, MIC, PBB, PBS, etc will be bullied by the majority of small political parties. If size matters in BN decision-making, small political parties gets bullied. Current consensus is the right balance and already working fairly.
Boy is he nuts... that suggestion will only encourage inter-party politicking in BN. Inter-party politics itself is already a headache to handle. Does he want more headache and get more nutty?
Just because they are Indians, why the need to answer IPF in such a round-about ways?
And also ... aiyooo IPF and MIC! Swallow your pride and unites la... forsake of Indians. There is too much voices of Indians but not enough of you to go around. No offense intended.
