Selangor very different?



Assemblymen in Selangor should be allowed to retain their councillorship, said Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo. He said problems would arise when assemblymen had difficulty channelling the people's grouses to the local government.

“Selangor is developing and there are many complaints on infrastructure, such as on potholes, clogged drains and non functioning streetlights. “It would be more difficult if they (state assemblymen) are outside (the council),” Khir told reporters.

Dr Khir urged the federal government to consider the situation in Selangor which differed from other states. “I know the Cabinet has yet to make any decision (on the position of assemblymen serving as councillors) and the Housing and Local Government is still collecting details. I just want to say Selangor is different,” he said.

Ya, Selangor is very different from other states. Selangor had more problem... more corruption problems and also have far more councillors who built houses without the need to comply with the law. They are in fact, absolutely different!

In Penang, state Umno deputy chairman Datuk Seri Abdul Rashid Abdullah was asked whether any action would be taken against two councillors who had dismal attendance record, Abdul Rashid said: “Why are you asking about action? It is too early to talk about this. Nak buat kacau buat apa? (why stir things up?)”

"Selangor is developing...bla bla yadda yadda"

Eh, I thought that Selangor is already a developED state? Maybe the ED means other things, if you know what I mean. ;)

All sorts of excuses when it comes to maintaining the prosperity of the empire, be it in our Malaysia government or the local authority, there is not much difference, isn't it?

Different is an opportunist word; used to justify acts otherwise unjustified.

Of course Selangor is different from the rest of the states. No other states want to be lumped in the same category as Selangor the way it is being mismanaged by its MB.

I don't like the sound of all those lists he's making - it's like prepossessing too many notes at philosophy; you experience you've achieved something when you haven't.
