Na! A little something for you la. Takde pe. Sikit je. Huh? Oh murid-murid lain? Oh tu lain kali kira la. Ingat ya? Undi...saya...ya? (Tak) Jumpa lagi!Yesterday (?) the newspapers carried the story of the BN government's gift of school uniforms and bags (no mention of books to learn stuff from) to 6,142 primary, secondary and religious school students in Manek Urai. Unless you've been napping for the past few months you will know that Manek Urai is the hot, contested constituency this time. BN vs. PAS. BN had, some time ago, already announced that they are more Islamic than PAS so this time around they are going to prove that they are much more generous as well? 300 school bags and uniforms you know. But of course, cynical all codgers anywhere will know all about the spin-doctoring statistics.
Remember there are 6,412 schools in that area. Only 300 students got their goodie bags. The rest? They ".....would be handed out in stages" wor. And I am sure whoever made that statement would have some land to sell you in Terengganu too.
Anyway, the reason why I chose the above title for this post is this. How are things ever going to get any better when we inculcate in Malaysians the habit of bribing from school-going age?
