Water, water everywhere...and it's going to cost you even more.

If you live in Selangor....If you are a concerned Malaysian....watch this embedded video......

Why? Because things might happen that will cost you, the Malaysian wage earner, lots of money. Money that you can't afford. Money that you don't have. The issue is WATER. The water that you use to cook with, drink, wash. Water that may from next month cost you up to double-digit % more. Hear how contracts are negotiated and awarded. Be amazed at RM700,000 monthly management fees. Be informed. Take charge as a Selangor-ian. Be aware as a Malaysian. Then make up your own mind.



NIAMAH!!!

Thanks for the intelligent video clip. Not to mention the tongue-in-cheek epilogue on the meaning of kia su. I am glad we have Pakatan Rakyat in Selangor to look into the water issue. Let's work on informing more folks on fairly current issues so that the rakyat can vote intelligently. We need leaders with integrity!

Patrick, this Santiago is not telling the entire and true picture.

what he raised is populist in nature

excecise caution.

never trust politician, be in PR or BN

saint will never be politician

Listen to Amused To Death by Roger Waters.

Nutshell , politician want to condition us.

MTUC plus the entire country is against the water deal proposed by the federal govt. This is gonna be like another one of those lopsided thing like with the toll operators. Yet, the government is gonna bulldoze this thru. I guess you were right when you mentioned once they are indeed trying very hard to push the rakyat to the other side... Good lah....

Just wondering when the Federal Government will start privatising air that you inhale everyday and charge consumption based on the size of your chest.

My anger? For the last 5 years I have had to BUY my drinking water supply and suffer metallic smells and taste and brown discharge in the showers and bathroom water supply!

Note the disclosure by Selangor MB that Syabas did not put in a cent of Equity in the earlier privatisation deal and were only required pay some low cost leasing charges which they may still be owing the State Govt!!

Now the Fed Govt is trying to sabotage Selangor from getting a fair deal. Note the settlement in Johor where the Govt paid some $5 billion AND took over their debts!

No wonder in Selangor these pirates don't want a fair deal. These fraudtrepreneurs are asking ther cronies in the Fed govt to bail them out so all their debts can be parked with teh Selangor Govt and they walk away with $ billions while the Rakyat is saddled with higher water charges to service these debts.

Who is kidding whom? MB Khalid, throw the book at these bastards and if necessary take it to the Courts so they can't automatically increase tariffs come April and you can drag it there for 5 years.

Water privatisation is just a front to save the cronies. We are going to fork out more in the future while these jokers who can't manage companies earn millions

saw the video till the end , the kiasu part.

I must say Santiago and Selangor PR did a real good job exposing the water scam .
We were all taken for a long long ride by the bn.
We were all screwed left and right by mca,mic,gerakan,ppp and umno

monsterball said...

After listening to Santiago...gone case....if UMNO capture Selangor in again.
If they succeed...we may need to buy big clay pots to capture rain water or dig a hole in our garden to have a well.
Hundreds of millions sucked legally by UMNO contractors......all appointed secretly...to ensure these people stay loyal to UMNO.
Liao lo....back to jungle lifestyle is best.

We wanted change and we voted for it but, the new S'gor gov. seems powerless. Why?

If it's indeed the prerogative of the state gov., as YB Santiago mentioned, then why does it seem like Syabas and Puncak Niaga are going to have their way?

water is not yet an issue in Swak. Here in the UAE however it is. we have the most expensive water in the world here, it's all desalinated. or sorta desalinated. our tap water has to be refiltered before we can cook with it...
