Pak Lah: Gimme more

One term's not enough. So how many terms would be fine?

The PM, who has been criticised for reneging on so many of his 04 election promises, said the government is just in the process of implementing almost all the programmes it promised. The programmes would take years to show results, he said.
“These are things that are not easy and take time to accomplish,” he said, adding that the programmes were not only confined to five-year plans in the 9th Malaysia Plan. They included development programmes, vision plans and national economic policies that took as long as 30 years.

That's right, he said thirty (30) years. [Of course, I don't think Pak Lah is asking to be PM for 30 years ...]

Read The Star's report, here.

"Gimme more time!" What do you make out of Najib's body language and facial expression when the PM wants a lot more time to prove his worth as PM?

    It means PM is not sleeping when it comes to elections.

    He knows that it cannot be the same outcome like the last time.

    One of the many contributing factor - after seeing Semi-Value making a ruckus during the recent BN meeting - trying to engage in war-of-words with Kayveas.

    He is wide awake now on the eventual losses for BN.

    Be gald that he is awake now.

  9. A 17 year-old is not even given a second chance to resit for SPM if he fails the first time.
    And here we have a PM who has reneged on ALL his promises and yet have the cheek to come with a straight face to ask for more time.
    Yes, we could give him another chance if he had made a sincere effort to implement some of his promises.
    Nay, BUT HE BROKE ALL!!!
    He promised :
    -to fight Corruption,
    -to clean up the police force,
    -to implement IPCMC,
    -more integrity, transparency and good governance,
    -to listen to the people
    -to cut off extravagance and mega projects.
    -more media freedom
    etc, etc, etc
    Now what have we?
    His own character is tainted beyond belief.
    He has lost all credibility as a leader.
    I think he needs more time to groom his SIL to succeed him.
    My reply: Go fly kite. I vote on performance, not empty promises.

  10. It is the power gone crazy
    He should know his plans
    He can’t hook and unhook as he likes
    He should know how the mechanism works

    I remembered when he is PM for the beginning
    He made a grand entrance to Immigration
    After some publicity gimmick, does he go back again?
    He never walks there to find out anymore
    He is too tired to climb the stairs

    Give him more time?
    Let him sleeps in his Land of Oz
    There he can dream all sorts of reasons
    Nobody will care what he does then

    When one wants to implement
    Short term and long term plans
    One should have the will and stomach for it
    Go get it down within the time
    Don’t go sleeping and playing hide and seek
    When ask about it
    “I don’t know”

    His slogans and gimmicks
    Flying so high with expectations
    When there is no wind, it finally nosedives
    “He screams what happen out there?
    The court jesters hide it away
    Broken bottles the maids drop by”

    Give him more time
    The country will rise
    The high costs of many essential goods
    He will loose it
    He can’t understand economics

    The voters out there
    Don’t get conned one more time

    What had PM done?
    ------------------
    PM is asking for more time!
    Should it be strike out or he can go for trial if anyone see a reason for his possible appeal?

    As a Man with own mandate in March 2004, to fight corruption, better delivery system, and IPCMC for a better Police, he was voted in.
    None can be seen!
    He had not lived up to his promises, as a Man!

    As a PM, he should recruit capable persons to run the Ministries and his PM Offices.
    How many Ministers or their subordinates had failed their jobs and continuing the post without any Penal code?
    Even Ministers can run away from answering queries from Parliament!
    He failed to have his cabinet answer the 2005 & 2006 AG Reports!
    So, he failed as a PM!

    As a Minister of Internal Security
    He failed to do the IPCMC bill due to under threat by Police to vote the Opposition and yet increments of welfare had been done!
    He failed to respect the basic Rights of People for Gathering and Opinions but with Teargas and Water Cannon.
    He failed to stop the Police, AG and the Court in torturing Victims of the Rallies with unnecssary prosecutions and even not allowing bails!
    He quote out of Context the ISA to put Hindraf Lawyers under ISA.
    He failed as a Minster of IS.

    As a Minister of Finance
    The best he had done is to pay out bills within 2 weeks time!!
    How can a Ministry be the one running corporations and doing payments at the same time?
    How can 20 or more corporations under the Ministry without Report to AG?
    He failed as Minister of Finance!

    He has breach the Trust of the People with his own Mandates and breach his Duty with posts he is holding so far!

    How much time he had been in Office instead of traveling around the World, in jets of millions but penny to disaster?
    Why his son-in-law can rally without permit and People to walk to speak the truth are stopped with Teargas and Water Cannon?
    Why People talk truly should be taken Defamation and ISA?
    How many times when country were in disasters and he was away?

    Personally, I do not see any reason why PM should not be sacked but extended for any period of time, except for time to pack-up and go!

  16. When I was in studying in Kelantan in 1987, there was a car sticker that the pakcik who sends me to school had on his car which read "Kami Mahu Two Car". It was during the presidential election of Razali and Mahathir.

    I wonder if the pakcik has decided to stick the sticker on his car once again. I know I would.

    come on...he' asking for more time, but those 3-4 years since 2004, is there any significant of his doings?

    i would say, ONE. only one. that is modal insan.

    i do only agree with him on modal insan because i do know that, whatever we have (infrastucture or money), we will still be lag behind if we ourselves are not of first class acts.

    How much time does it take to acknowledge that the police is guilty of dysfunction?

    The list can go on ...

    Let's cut to the chase,if you as PM could not do it in 100 days, you would not be able to do it in 100 years. You just want another term of sleeping-on-thejob!

  23. PM Abdullah is now rejuvenated with a new wife and buying more time to enjoy life on the fast lane.
    His “I have begun to implement” means he has really been sleeping all along and only after 4 years when he needs another mandate he woke up to implement his promises.
    The reality is that he is still looking for ‘the right time” to go to the Polls. With the shortages and spiraling prices, especially the essential goods hurting the pockets of everyone are also hurting the votes for the BN. He is now asking the 5000 UMNO reps he met to explain to the people first and to resolve local issues and the setting up of the National Stockpile and National Call Centre would be established under National Price Council. What use is the release of the stockpile items and to be smuggled out if there is no check on corruption in the anti-smuggling unit.
    The 5.8% EPF dividends was a sweetener to the private sector and for the Public sector he has the RM2billion in lieu of the Bonus announcement to win over the 1.2 Billion Government servant votes

    "I need more time" - Pak Lah.

    Well, everything has a time limit and expiry date.

    Your expiry date as Chairman of the OIC ends in mid-March 2008. Go tell all the Muslim nations "I need more time".

    By the way, Najib sitting next to you was thinking to himself "But I can't wait for you to quit. The sooner, the better. I am restless for my turn. I don't want to be like Prince Charles, always prince but will he ever be a King?".

    The stupid sleepy head fellow is just insensitive thinking only of himself. He wants to field younger and more capable people but he's blocks their way. He has to go. If a CEO can't produce results, he gets the sack and somebody else takes over.

    thankfully I'm NOT a reporter... because I cannot and will not suffer fools gladly.

    if I were, I'd be fired quicker than one could say, "Abdullah Ahmad Badawi."

    anyway, if I were at the PWTC briefing, this is what I'd say...

    He said, “These are things that are not easy and take time to accomplish.”

    I'd say, "Whoever said that running a country was going to be easy... it's certainly not a holiday. Anyhow, since you've experienced it first-hand, does this mean you're going to retire and become a jet-setter or, maybe, a goat farmer?"

    He said, “Some development and vision plans overlap and some need a long time to produce results.”

    I'd say, "How long? but, then again, give any idiot more than enough time, he/she could graduate with flying colours! But, seriously, if development/vision plans take a long time to produce results then there must be mistakes in those development/vision plans, isn't that obvious to you?"

    He said, “It was then a time of hope. There was expectation that a lot of things would change, but we cannot change, I cannot change everything."

    I'd say, "Finally, you've said something that I can agree with 100 per cent... spoken like a true born-loser!"

    For good measure, I'd even add, "So, how does it feel to have failed the hopes of millions?"

    May God have mercy on your soul... because I don't!

    The greater dilemma is that other countries are pacing themselves and have systems that taps on the opportunities of globalization and prospering, but our PM is saying he needs more time, probably another few terms to get a clean, efficient and excellent system started and implemented.

    As such, you and I will no more be around to observe the implementation. Oh, Pm also won't be around to see it happen; the future PM will then speak the same and ask for a few terms to get going. I'm not sure whether Malaysia would have become Zimbabwee of today.

    Najib does not look too happy in the picture, Bru! But if voters decide to punish the BN, Najib is in danger. Remember he almost lost in 1999. There's no love lost between these two men. Poor Najib and worse for Malaysia. I think Malay voters will revolt by punishing Umno. Money may not buy all of them. Also much on Umno's and BN's money will be looted and pocketed by a few anyway. The Chinese tawkeys will play two-way. They give money to BN openly and to the DAP quietly. Chinese will reject BN this time. Their perniagaan is affected by corruption and bad economic management. The poor Chinese are also suffering like the poor Malays and Indians. There are now Chinese beggers in Kuala Lumpur. Indians are split between Hindu Right Action Front and self appointed Hindu godman Samy Vellu, Keadilan and DAP. I think opposition can win 20 to 40 seats.

    Meanwhile, Anwar Ibrahim was at it again.

    In an AFP report from Hong Kong, carried on the Spore Straits Times website(http://www.straitstimes.com) today, Anwar, who is now in HK, said that Malaysia had lost foreign investment, growth and attractiveness. Why?

    As per the report, the country's ability to attract foreign investment had been compromised by the retention of affirmative action policies in favour of the Malay majority.

    Anwar also was reported to have said in HK that "creeping Islamisation" in Malaysia is a turn-off for foreign investors.

    Go to the ST website to check out the report.

    Hmm...Anwar is treading a fine line here. I wonder if the govt will hit back by accusing him of bad-mouthing Malaysia overseas.

    And is it seditious to criticise the country's affirmative action policy and to talk about "creeping Islamisation"?

    Kylie Minogue - Give Me Just A Little More Time
    (Originally performed by Chairman of the Board in early 1970s )

    CHORUS: Give me just a little more time
    And our love will surely grow
    Give me just a little more time
    And our love will surely grow

    1: Life's too short to make a mistake
    Let's think of each other and hesitate
    Young and impatient we may be
    There's no need to act foolishly
    If we part our hearts won't forget it
    Years from now we'll surely regret it

    CHORUS

    2: You're young and you're in a hurry
    You're eager for love but don't you worry
    We both want the sweetness in life
    But these things don't come overnight
    Don't give up cos love's been slow
    Boy, we're gonna succeed with another blow

    Give me just a little more time
    And our love will surely grow
    Baby please baby
    Baby please baby

    3: Love is that mountain we must climb
    Let's climb it together your hand in mine
    We haven't known each other too long
    But the feeling I have is oh so strong
    I know we can make it there's no doubt
    We owe it to ourselves to find it out Just,

    CHORUS

    Give me just a little more time
    And our love will surely grow
    Baby, please baby
    Baby, please baby CHORUS: (repeat & fade)
