Yeah right! Tell us another one YB.

Minister for International Trade and Industry, Mustapa bin Mohamed

This minister tried to explain the need for a new palace to a group of students. I don't think they believed him. Listening to him I wouldn't either? Would you? I especially like the part where he tells them not to shout as he has not shouted at them. Classic Malaysian education system. Also pay special attention to how the students react (0:15) when he said, "we all need palaces..." and at 1:19 when he describes the current palace as 'far too small'. A minister of the cabinet and he can't even handle a group of students how does he handle himself when he is abroad officially as International Trade and Industry? Scary la!

I really am NOT convinced at all with his speech, that we NEED a palace! All he said for the whole 2-3 minutes was beating around the bush with some "we need a palace" bullsh*t. OF COZ I know we NEED a palace, but I think the concern now is that our country is going bankrupt! So every sane rakyat in town would like to know if we REALLY NEED a RM800million palace at this time or not!!

the new istana negara is symptomatic of the leeching of public funds by a cosy alliance between the royalty and umno. This pax malaysiana has been a drain on public coffers for far too long. I ask the royalty this question: which horse are you betting on? You're either on the side of the rakyat or you are just leeches on our backs to be plucked off one day, plain and simple.

“We do not believe in being spoon-fed or being too dependent on the government - in other words, we do not have a crutch mentality,' wrote Singapore Berita Harian editor Guntor Sadali.

Guntor said Singapore Malays believed that a community with such a mentality would soon become a “two M” community, which stands for ‘manja’ (spoilt), and ‘malas’ (lazy).

Wonder why the Utusan Malaysia editor and its Ridhuan Tee/Awang Selamat cannot think like this. They must learn from Berita Harian Singapore.

I always have trouble making sense of what this guy say. Is it just me?

new fart said...

Fuck this galah! Another classic case of a Malaysian minister speaking. First of all you can hardly understand what he was talking about with his pasar English and then trying to make sense of what he was trying to spin! Gosh, even those kids were laughing their heads off! Pathetic really. Is this the kind of people we can only choose to put up as minister of the government? Niamah!!!

accyaw said...

An ex-government once told me this - All they ever did in e office was meeting, have cake & tea, more meeting but never implementing anything. Day after day after day..
that explains y e "minister" is so blur, they r paid to do nothing! unless u count tea as work!?
So i speak for all malaysians, we have to come together at e next election, n do something abt it, complaining just ain't gonna work!!

victer said...

He sounds ..well, more "humble" compared with some real "leeches" of the government.
Still, the reasons given weren't convincing enough.

Anonymous said...

Mustapa English sounds so pathetic... * I doubt his credibility* does Malaysian cabinet have at least some audible speakers around?

It's laughable to see the government put forward a pig face clown to 'give stupid excuses' to the educated pupils. The students are obviously make a larger and stronger voice compare to that noob... HE'S FAILED!!!!

Rosakwati said...

What kind of minister is he? Can't get the fuck what he is trying to say except that 'yes,we need a palace,just like we need a house'.What fucking logic is this?Finally,this f'king minister gave the reason that the present palace is too small and the students started to boo him.At first he still try to compose himself with his smiling face.But after giving lecture that 'you nice to me,I will nice to you',his face turned serious showing his displeasure.Hai,Mr Najib,tolonglah tukar ini menteri yang tak guna dan tak tahu apa yang dia cakap!

Gratitude said...

Good GAWD, what a blardy fumbling idiot! Did he think he could speak to them like lil kids?

niakong said...

Ministers speaking with substance are very rare nowadays ... extinct is a better word to use i guess.

What we have now are only those who love to merepek and merepek and merepek superficially. I don't think they've ever done their homework. Just last minute knee-jerk reactions all the time.

Hmmm... Or perhaps i've wronged them, they've already given their utmost best. Sigh!!

The real sad part is this. Borrowing some of Haley Joel Osment's words in The Sixth Sense would go like this, "I saw moron people, but they don't even know that they're morons!"

For the sake of our beloved nation, let's make the change, guys! Exercise your voting rights wisely ... i help you,you help me, yah!

Nothing much to say:

"We all need palaces."

Hi everyone,

Manja, I'd like to add to what you mentioned about Mr Mohd Guntor Sadali statement, which was published in the 29 July 2010 issue of Singapore's Straits Times

Mr Mohd Guntor Sadali, the chief editor of Singapore's Berita Harian and Berita Minggu rebutted Dr M's contention, made in Terengganu, that cautioned that Malaysian Malays would go the way of Singapore's Malays!!?? Mr Mohd Guntor stated that Singapore Malays are dignified and embraced meritocracy in religion (they raised their own funds for mosques and other religious activities), education (they compete on level grounds with other Singaporeans), etc, i.e. they are not on 'crutches mentality' unlike their Malaysian counterparts!! No doubt, they share the same 'cultural and historical' background as the Malaysian brethens, but the similarity ends there!

So, shouldn't Mr Ahmad Maslan, the information chief of UMNO, be ashamed that he still want to rely on 7% discount on luxurious homes? How would this 7% discount to rich and connected bumiputras help the ordinary bumiputras? Or, is he trying to spin and provide misinformation that all bumiputras need this 7% discount?

You can see sub-standard UMNO ministers making incredulous statement after statement, minister Mohd Mustapha, included, and not forgetting his denial syndrom of 81% drop in FDI!!

Malaysian ministers, at least the incumbent, are a bunch of nuts! Sorry to say that but I am not impress by them at all and I believe most of the people don't!

Sorry. I am at a loss for words. Can I just pee on this A-hole??

Arunzab said...

I could not understand a word what this clown was talking about. All I could make out from his waffling is that "We all need Palaces" I always knew our ministers were stupid but this is the height of stupidity. Good Lord please save us.

Anonymous said...

lol-nesss minister got pwned!!

anyway still he has yet to clarify the doubts of :-

1. Why we need a new palace?

2. Why cant we just renovate the current palace to accommodate whatever mentioned (bigger audience hall, bigger feasting hall)?

3. What happens to the current palace if the peoples in the palace are reallocated to the new site?

4. Who was awarded the tender to construct the palace and the transparency of the total cost?

Anonymous said...

The current government needs to please the royalty to have them on their sides against the opposition. With a strong two party system, the royalty stand to gain. 800 million could be use to build 20 schools at 40 million each. What a waste!!

Anonymous said...

Cost a little bit of money?
Wow.. RM800million (maybe more) is bit of money. Oh ya, he's from UMNO and this is nothing compared to the Scorpene...

Just look at his facial expression!!

What's wrong with a palace built before merdeka? White house is 300 years old, Buckingham is 400 !

Waaaaahaaaaaaahaaaaaaaa!
That stooge in the clip is as hilarious,although I believe unintentionally,as the very late Saddamn HusSin's ex-Information Minister,Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf who has gained a cult following in the West for his antics during the height of the last gulf war.

Anonymous said...

The rakyat need a simple house(low-cost house) to live in, but most politicians need a palace!. I thought that is what he meant. I can support a palace for one King only.I am also worried that the cronies are made millionaire from this new palace project. Is there a likely posibility that the present palace which is on prime land in KL is going the way of the old Sungai Besi Airport.Cronies are going to make billions out of redevelopement. This is a form of looting the nation.

Anonymous said...

What can you expect Mustapa to say to substantiate the building of the new RM800mil palace ha???? There is never a reason to do so in the first place!
I am happy to note that 'so-called' ministers are mobbed and laughed at when they take the stage

Anonymous said...

The problem is..... he has NO answer for the students!
Why waste millions of ringgit on building 1 palace when it can house many of our poor...???
What's with these ppl's brains???

Haiya..!! Same thing they doin'... year in, year out!
Hobby.

brukarer said...

I don't own a house. Im know many people who don't, they are either renting or tumpang.
Encik Mustapa, can we live in the old, rather small istana?

Btw, saya tak habis dengar u cakap.I feel like puking listening to u and looking at the way u talk.

Trashed said...

Actually, Mustapha is one of the better English speaking Ministers but this video clip showed that he just had no susbtance to provide as a reply to the students question.

The students laughing at their Minister's reply is really sad ... for the Minister.

Anonymous said...

Malaysia needs a bigger palace like this bumbling fool needs a bigger hole in his head. No ! Not a bullet hole but a bigger hole to house the enormous emptiness he has ! The enormity of space is too small for this dumb skull.

Fumbling idiot on a student's stage. Just imagine this clown on the world stage.

ralfie said...

"We all need palaces"?

Does he even know that some people can't even afford a small pondok??

I've met Mustapha Mohamed before in the States. He's a humble fella. Nice guy and all. But I guess he probably didn't expect students would be asking this sharp-edged question to him.

Anonymous said...

Don't understand and don't get what is he trying to convey only heard we NEED a Palace and the way he talk seem like he also does not believe his own answer.

nstman said...

This is the same idiot who has no inkling of why FDI has fallen 80 per cent. As trade minister, he should have taken responsibility. Instead he has let his sycophants like Rockybru to tell the whole world that FDIs are not important in the Malaysian context. Tiuniamah.

Actually its not difficult to explain the new palace but its clear they did not thought it through and he is just getting old and tired.

Mustapha has been around a long time as a technocrat but has never risen any further despite being pulled up to the top of the UMNO heirarchy at a very young age.

It goes to show that the talented in UMNO is just wasting their time - they don't grow, don't get better and end up the same way their old masters like Mahathir are - a parasite and burden to the people

Hi Patrick ,
This guy is a moron - cannot speak proper english , doubt he knows his job as a minister

flyer168 said...

Pat,

With our "Uneducated Morons" (Oh yes, they can have a string of degrees, MBAs, PhDs, etc...ever wondered how!) heading our Political Scenery, Government Institutions, GLCs, etc, etc, etc...

No wonder we lost many, many, many of our Precious National Heritage, like the Woodland's Naval Base in Singapore, Batu Puteh Island (rich in natural resources, etc) which they lost to Singapore at the ICJ, now the KTM land in Singapore plus many more to come in K.L...TUDM Airport, Old King's Palace, Carcosa, Parliament House, etc, etc, etc.

"Politicians are predisposed not to see spending Other People’s Money as a problem, because spending Other People’s Money is what politicians do for a living.

If politicians thought there were something wrong with it, they would be in a different line of work.

If, by some epiphany, a politician were to realize that spending Other People’s Money is wrecking our health care sector, he would be loath to point it out.

Doing so would only encourage voters to question whether spending Other People’s Money causes problems everywhere else too." - Michael F. Cannon.

Cheers.

we all need a palace, doesnt meant we should seek instant gratification. I would give it all up for freedom of speech, freedom of information, an impartial MACC, eradication of poverty, freedom of worship, a cabinet to be proud of, etc

Anonymous said...

What this arsehole minister means is all the UMNO/BN big shots (including himself) need to have palaces. And of course the bigger shots should have bigger palaces mah. That's why the Toyol guy only limit his own palace to RM24 million.

What a big joke of a minister to go on record to justify this humongous palace when the natives of east malaysia are still living in squalid conditions. But this is expected from UMNO Boleh!!!

I only hope the majesties who take residence in this humongous palace can sleep soundly every night while knowing full well the poor Penans are sleeping in their huts full of holes.

YB definitely had a hard time explaining facts and figures to the students because he is not even convinced of the answers uttered from his mouth !

Any comment on the proposal by that Melaka CM to get young malays who are tagih on sex to marry young to enjoy sex?

Anonymous said...

The Umno President as well as the Umno Youth Chief have been doing the song and dance on how their party's capable of change and reform, like their slogan in the Hulu Selangor by-elections "BN Mampu Berubah". However these are proving to be empty rhetoric, for its now demonstrated clearly that Umno leaders are only interested in upholding 'ketuanan Melayu', even if it is at the expense of public policy, principles of social and distributive justice as well, as well as the greater needs of the poorer bumiputeras.

from time to time....our beloved cabinet minister will come out with all those funny jokes,speeches,comments,suggestions and ideas.....this time around..nothing new....except....he talked like a small kid...behave like an idiot.....absolutely nonsense.......i cannot accept it....what palace??? another project for corruption to take place....again??? hopeless....One Malaysia One Najis......Malaysia Boleh.....but all for the wrong fcuking reason!

Khun Pana aka johanssm said...

Theres no need to beat around the bush by saying the current palace is too small.
Just say out loud that umno contractors needed money badly and after the new palace is ready the naza group will "win" contracts to supply the palace will fleet of luxury cars , new luxury cruise ship for the agong and so on.

Oopet said...

Our King does not need a new palace. But the umnoputera need one to milk the rakyat via its ali-baba style of sub-contracting in the building of istana.

Simple as that. Now you know why the cost will continue to go up

Yakubu said...

There's certainly nothing enshrined in the Constitution which says that Malays are entitled to discounts for luxury properties costing millions of ringgit.The 'special position' of the Malays also does not extend by definition to such discounts or privileges, or one could then make the incredulous argument that as a result of the 'special position', Malays will even be entitled to constitutional discounts for purchasing BMWs, Porches, home theatre systems, first class air tickets or even jewellery and precious stones.

The discount for the purchase of luxury properties is one of the clear cut abuses of the New Economic Policy which needs reform to ensure that it is the bottom 40% of income earners who receive the benefit from affirmative action.

As such it is appropriate to abolish the discount applied to luxury homes and to use the 'discount' to set up a housing fund to help poor bumiputeras.

OK la. Malaysia does need a new palace to replace the existing palace. But what I find astonishing are how ministers response to questions - first, why the normal tender process was not used is because of some 'sensitive secrets'; now why we need a palace because the present one is too small!!

...so sad.

stephen said...

Oh... the current palace is small...I wonder why...since they claim the place is haunted maybe its very crowded with I don't want to know what :P

Maybe Malaysia need to build a forbidden city here....a huge place just for one family WHICH might not even stay at the place most of the time.

New palace... old one too small, its old. King of a nation needs a place that suits him.
Lets compare with the Official residence of the most powerful political figure in the world: THE WHITE HOUSE
- Built in 1792-1800
- 3 story's tall (including attic)

It has seen the visits of countless dignitaries and is only occupied by the president during this 4 years in office (unless reelected then 8 years). TONS of renovation works have been done and upgrades have been built in.

instead of building a new palace why not renovate the inside and upgrade the old one.

Imagine how many schools/hospitals/dialysis centers/community centers/parks can be build with the money saved
