Brilliant juxtaposition by theSun: "Pay more for tolls but still get lanslides." Bravo!
To quote from theSun:
Samy Vellu said the breakdown of compensation to be paid to nine highway concessionaires is:
* Ampang-Hulu Klang Elevated Highway – RM28 million
* North South Expressway (Central Link) – RM18 million
* Seremban-Port Dickson Highway – RM178 million
* Kulim-Butterworth Highway – RM10 million
* Malaysia-Singapore Second Link – RM6 million
* Sprint Highway - RM34 million
* North Klang Valley Expressway Highway – RM9 million, and
* Penang Bridge – RM22 million.
He said that another compensation of RM75 million would also be allocated to Litrak, operator of the Damansara Puchong Expressway, following approval this year to reduce its toll rate of RM2.20 to RM1.60.
To a suggestion by M. Kulasegaran (DAP-Ipoh Barat) to nationalise all highways in the country, and another suggestion by Lim Kit Siang (DAP-Ipoh Timur) that Petronas take over the highways, Samy Vellu said these were impractical as they would burden the government financially.
"The national petroleum company would have to pay RM300 billion if it undertakes the move," Samy Vellu said.
You are saying that the Blue Nazi is not rich, us rakyat should shut up and pay for it AND still vote for you?
No prizes for correct guesses on where the funds went:
...and that's just only the tip of the iceberg. And it's definitely more than the above RM 300billion.
Yes, we'll still vote for you...dangle some carrot, main pangkah je!
The third largest community will not receive anything and they will not complain. Instead, they'll go after the Brits instead and still kiss Semi Value's arse.
Smart people will know how to take the carrot, digest it and shove the sh*t up the Blue Nazis arses. Sadly, this is not the case.
You reap what you sow. So, don't complain.
