Pro-AES protest in Penang - NST
A good time to make demands. With GE just round the corner, anything's possible. If we haven't heard KJ speaking the Guan Eng lingo, now we are hearing it. Or perhaps in calling for the AES to be delayed, he hadn't known that all four Pakatan states had just demanded for the very same thing. See the two reports below.
The AES, a (BN) government-initiated state-of-the-art anti-traffic offender system, was proposed years ago, had obviously approved by Cabinet and had gone to Parliament for debate after debate. Why all of them are having second thoughts is not what irks me - they all sway easily; what troubles me is that these politicians had all the time in the world to make up their minds, demand and get briefings, inform their constituents, get feedback from the people, etc.
But they have all chosen to speak up now after the system is up and running and after thousands of traffic offenders have been booked. Why?
I was told that when the GE is just around the corner, the PM will be more "willing" to make all kinds of concessions. I know what Guan Eng and the Pakatan people want but I am not too sure what KJ and Umno Youth are asking ...
