(Laura's impression of the "look" of future local councilors.)
It was reported in the papers today that the Sabak Bernam District Council president has been transferred out for “overlooking” several entertainment outlets that doubled as illegal gambling centres. The fler has been transferred back to the Public Services Department.
A couple of things bug me la. If action was taken against the fler it must mean that he was guilty of some misdeed although our big minister of this here developed state continues to amaze me with his use of inventive descriptions of what are plain and simple fuck-ups. “Overlooking”…hahahahahaha…sorry. Okay, okay…If he is guilty why wasn’t he fired? If he is known to have a habit of “overlooking” stuff wouldn’t he do the same back in the PSD or wherever he’s “moved out” to?
Shape Up Or Ship Out! That’s the warning recently given by the Chief Secretary to the Government to all civil servants. Obviously, our big minister decided to take his words literally and shipped the Sabak Bernam fler back out to the PSD. So what? He cools his heels there for a few months before he's moved out to another lucrative "overlooking" place issit?
