Responsible vs UnResponsible

If only we had a PM like this instead of 'one that does not know where he should stand':

Councilors must be responsible for what they do as there are laws on corruption and mis-use of powers, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said. The Prime Minister said these laws were enforceable and Councilors must bear in mind that they could not hide or take advantage of the System to do something that was against the law.

“They cannot hope to cover themselves or hide from the laws,” he told Malaysian journalists at the end of his three-day working visit here yesterday.
He said Councilors, just like Ministers, must be responsible for what they do or risk facing legal action from others.

Abdullah was commenting on the legal action against Councilors that were corrupt and abusing their powers for personal gains. He raised the question of “what was Power without responsibility,” saying that laws must be respected.

Here's my comments on KMU:

As a Malaysian CEO, Pak Lah has not, cannot and will not deliver.

He (and his family) is also a HUGE LIABILITY to UMNO and BN.
In less than 3 years, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has successfully managed to tarnish and make a joke of our country's reputable image by his wishy-washy decisions, highly uninformed as well as unintelligent statements both to Malaysians and the world.

This is my ultimate conclusion.

I have given Abdullah the benefits of the doubts when Tun Dr Mahathir told us he is the possible choice, eventhough I have some reservations. I had put my reservations aside having seen Mahathir's proven track records. I have observed, got very disappointed and now absolutely FURIOUS with this PM's mis-stewardship and blatant abuse of his position and office in the last 3 years.

As the RAKYAT, the real shareholders and stakeholders of Malayia, I don't think any of us want to approve this sort of UNWARRANTED PURCHASES. I was shocked at the amount of RM going down the drain when he RENOVATED the Perdana residence costing over RM20. I don't think that is warranted at all. It came from the rakyat's pocket and hard-earned money.

Then gallavanting around the world at taxpayers money and receiving high-end "gift" as reported in foreign newspaper, when he has not yet proven his worth as a PM instead keep giving us the rakyat more and more headaches in term of rising costs (fuel and toll hikes PLUS all other cost of living hikes due to the fuel hikes!). When the rakyat suffered a natural disaster recently, the PM was happily playing golf and opening his family-owned Nasi Kandar restaurant in Australia. Where is his PRIORITIES? Who pays his salary? His family or us the MALAYSIAN RAKYAT & TAXPAYERS?

His family interferes with the nation's decision-makings, as well as attend govt meetings, and he without any shame to us the UMNO members, duly put his son-in-law at UMNO Pemuda and his daughter Nori at Putri UMNO high office. He also sees fit without embarassment in putting his name and family names on national interests. Now we found out there is a perjanjian Koizumi-Abdullah, a dewan Sri Endon, etc.

This is VERY EMBARASSING, HIGHLY UNAPPROPRIATE and NOT the way a PM should be carrying about his business.

No former Malaysian PM have done such thing. It is a gentleman's and unwritten understanding one does not put one's one's family and priorities over the nation. It is ABSOLUTELY EMBARASSING to be putting one's own name and label on a national interest.

We CANNOT AFFORD such person to run Malaysia AT A BLATANT HIGH COST with NO DELIVERABLES, instead giving us headaches after headaches. Shouldn't the Govt under the PM take care of u? but now we see and experiencing we have to baby-sit the PM and the Govt. Everyday we are reminded to TAKE CARE of the Govt. This not to include the embarassment of the tarnishing of our image by the PM. What sort of PM will dragged his family "my son-in-law PERIUK NASI was damage" at a foreign press conference?? and what a HUGE PERIUK NASI that is! Or the picture of him caressing a Michelle Yeoh's shoulder at the recent Monsoon Cup when he was promoting himself as an Islamic figure. What sort of JOKE is the PM making and dragging this country into?

As a hardworking taxpayer [who is seeing my hard-earned money and purchasing power eroded and abused day-by-day in the last 3 years], a BN-voter and an UMNO member, I now DEMAND TO SEE the itemized list for ALL this particular PM is costing us in the 3 years we trusted him with this office. [For the record, I voted for BN not becoz of the candidate. I voted and trusted my vote as well as all my family, friends and neighborhood votes for the stirling PREVIOUS TRACK RECORD given by Tun Dr. Mahathir in running the country under UMNO and BN. But NOW it is important and crucial for us to consider the candidate and his immediate famly].

The rakyat can only afford to be make a fool once. UMNO and BN must remove this koyak and absolutely non-performing candidate if they want and win our trust again.

Can someone tabled the ITEMIZED COSTINGS please.
