There is a very funny story in the front page of The Sun today. Did you see it? It says that among the Terms Of Reference (TOR) decided by the independent panel headed by Hanif Omar is the hope that it will establish, among 9 other things, whether allegations of police brutality towards the public and the media are true.
What???!!! Are they blind? Or are they not Internet savvy enough to be able to watch YouTube videos of the event? Establish allegations of police brutality towards the public? Okay la, if the fler had said that they were going to investigate WHY the police acted the way they did I'd buy that. But 'establish allegations' ah? So that means we Malaysian citizens are again accused of being bloody liars la...... hiyoh damn farnieee la.
The front page of The Sun also carried the story that the Sultan of Johor had paid RM520,000 for the car registration number WWW1. The story also revealed that Health Minister, Liow Tiong Lai paid RM24,200 for WWW15. I don't know about you but I find that rather distasteful. At a time when most Malaysians have been told to tighten belts and whatnot our so-called "leaders" more than show us, and rub our faces in it, that they have money to burn. As a tax-paying citizen it kind of makes you damn TOO LAN (pissed off), right?
When I was in Desaru yesterday there was this Lamborghini parked in the hotel driveway. Being a typical Malaysian I went over to kay-po and look it over. One thing caught my eye. The road tax sticker. It said the road tax on the vehicle was RM0.00!!!
How can ah? What category of Malaysian does not have to pay road tax? Only Royalty, right? But Royalty also do not have to have a car registration number right? But this Lambo had. WWS1***. Maybe it is a car that belongs to Royalty but it was not an "official" royal vehicle. In which case it would have to pay road tax. No? Damn confusing la, this Them and Us system.
