The Bolehland Daily: Next fuel-raised to be below 78 cent

To whom it may fucking concern,
Excuse me for my choice of words. I just can't stand it anymore.

What the fuck is this?

Next fuel-raised to be below 78 cent

Domestic Trade Minister Shahrir Samad told reporters on Friday that the next increase will be lower than 78 cent and it is unlikely to happen next month.


ARE YOU REALLY OUT OF YOUR STUPID MIND? The people have not even gotten over the burdening fuel increased of 78 cent and now you're talking about the next increase? Since it's below 78cent for the next increase, am I supposed to take this as GOOD NEWS, you piece of shit. Money seems to be never enough for this bunch of scumbags!

FUCK OFF, you bunch of motherfuckers! I hope your next generation onwards will suffer in poverty, asshole.

The Bolehland Daily: ARE YOU READY MALAYSIAN? Mass anti-fuel hike rally on July 12


(Malaysiakini) Thousands of people would be mobilised for a mass protest against the shocking increase in fuel prices at the iconic KLCC Twin Towers on July 12. Organisers Coalition Against Inflation (Protes) hopes to gather 100,000 people to call on the government to reduce fuel prices to its original levels before the hike today. "We believe that with such a drastic hike in fuel prices, we will get the support of the masses.

"This is not similar to the Bersih rally. It's going to be bigger. The impact would be bigger," Protes coordinator Dr Hatta Ramli told a press conference today.

Hatta explained that the KLCC Twin Towers was selected as the rally point because it was the headquarters of Malaysia's oil company Petronas.

He argued that Malaysia was an oil producing country and record profits from Petronas should be used to relieve the public from being burdened by the fuel hike.

“We have five weeks to mobilise the crowd and the government has five weeks to react to the people’s demands (to revert fuel prices to their original levels),” he said.

The Bolehland Daily: Pak Lah is digging his own grave

In a highly unpopular move, our lovely or indeed trying so hard to be lovely, the once Mr So-Called "Clean" wannabe PM made a statement claiming his Government is not making an attempt to be popular.

Mr So-Called CLEAN (but dont know which part) said:
"We try our best. This isn't an attempt to be popular. (But) we have to think in the best interest of the people," he told reporters during a 50-minute press conference held at his office in Putrajaya this afternoon.

"We can't satisfy everyone. Anything that involves people paying more, naturally they are going to be unhappy. (I hope) they will understand the circumstances we are working under," he added.
"Insyallah (God willing), I hope they will not demonstrate over this," he said.

Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi also revealed an increase in electricity tariffs effective July 1. Electricity tariffs to raise by up to 20%.

Am I dumb or what? I simply do not see how this move will be popular? Popular for what rubbish? How is this in the best interest of the people? You mean feeding more cronies will be the best interest? I am already FUCKING POOR and you are taking more away from me and that is the BEST FUCKING INTEREST that you can have for me and my mates in Bolehland? Pure FUCKING rubbish.



The Bolehland Daily: Breaking News! Fuel hike: 78 sen more to RM2.70 per litre

(Malaysiakini) The government has just announced that petrol price will go up by 78 sen at midnight - a 40.6 percent jump from RM1.92 per litre to RM2.70. The price of diesel will go up RM1, or 63.3 percent - from RM1.58 per litre to RM2.58.

The price hikes are among government measures to cut the spiralling bill for oil subsidies, which is expected to amount to RM56 billion this year.

At a press conference held at 5pm, Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi also announced that the government plans to offer rebates to motorists to offset the fuel price increase.
Under the scheme, vehicles below 2000cc will receive a RM625 rebate annually - to compensate for 800 litres of fuel used under the new price.

Motorcyclists will be given a rebate of RM120. The money will be paid by postal order.
Rebate will be paid when motorists renew the road-tax for their vehicles.

The government is expected to save RM4 billion under this new subsidy restructure.
If petrol is to be sold at full market prices, it could be as high as almost RM4 a litre - about 100 percent above current levels.

However the government is slowly expected to head towards totally abolishing the fuel subsidy.

The Bolehland Daily: Karpal: Haul up Dr M for contempt

(malaysiakini) Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad should be hauled up before the royal commission into the ‘Lingam tape’ for ‘contempt against its members’.
“I am surprised that, as a former prime minister, Mahathir has gone beyond the limits and latitude of criticism of the report of the commission,” said Karpal, who is also Bukit Gelugor MP.

The royal commission has named Mahathir as one of six prominent personalities who warrant further investigation for allegedly compromising judicial integrity. Responding to this, Mahathir claimed that the commission possibly was set up “in order to find something to pin on me, to drag me to court etc and generally humiliate me”.

The Bolehland Daily: More Bolehland Jokes. Ready?

Ride off into the sunset, Koh told

(malaysiakini) DAP national chairperson Karpal Singh has told Gerakan acting president Koh Tsu Koon to heed public opinion and accept the electoral defeat that his party sustained in the general election on March 8.

Koh should not continue to claim credit for “the few good things” done during his 18-year tenure as Penang chief minister, said Karpal (right), but accept the reality that the days of his “pomp and splendour have come and gone”.

He claimed that Koh has been interfering in the state through Gerakan members, to belittle the achievements of Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

“Koh should cease and desist from interfering in state political governance. It’s the prerogative of Penangites, given to Lim to govern the state towards its own destiny,” he said

Karpal was commenting on recent criticism of the state government by Koh’s former political secretary Mark Ooi Swee Hing.

Ooi accused Lim’s government of riding on a success story fashioned by Koh by claiming credit over the two high-profile investments - the RM1.2 billion investment by Japanese printed circuit board manufacturer Ibiden Co Ltd and RM115 million by American Honeywell, a global leader in the aerospace industry.

‘Puppet chief minister’
Karpal also described Koh as having been a puppet chief minister, whose administration had accommodated the demands and commands of Umno, instead of protecting the rights and interests of the people of Penang. “By virtue of having more seats in the state assembly, it was Umno calling the shots and was filching many prized projects during Koh’s time,” said Karpal, who is the Bukit Gelugor MP.

He reminded Koh (left) to be grateful to Lim for coming to his defence when Umno members openly demonstrated against him during the Tanjung Umno divisional meeting presided by party president Abdullah Ahmad Badawi in 2006.

“By then Koh should have stepped down gracefully, but he didn’t. Then the Penang voters had to (make sure that he did) so. Thus he should not interfere, and should retire and ride into sunset in grace and dignity,” said Karpal.

The Bolehland Daily: Be prepared for another case of "Police getting away" and "Victim suffered in the dark and kept quiet"

Latest update
Kajang police chief ACP Shakaruddin Che Mood told a press conference this morning that the police have a right to protect themselves.

While conceding that he has not seen evidence of the assault, he said: “Anyone can make up a story.”

MCA Youth legal bureau chief Gan Ping Sieu said he would write to the inspector-general of police and the home ministry soon, seeking an inquiry into the police brutality. Gan, who is representing the four suspects, said Shakaruddin had assured an “impartial investigation” into the incident.
“He said he would assign two separate investigating officers, which is good news,” said Gan.

He also called on eyewitnesses to provide information, and added that he would work with the human rights commission which is to consider a public inquiry into the incident.

Gan also said that the youth wing hoped that the attorney general will not prosecute the four.

He added that the police had indeed used excessive force on the four and those responsible should be dragged to court to face action.

"The four were unarmed and defenceless. There was no reason for the police to use excessive force," he said.

Police bail extended for BMC four

(Malaysiakini) The four persons who are being investigated for attempted murder and rioting during a fracas at Bandar Mahkota Cheras on May 27 have had their police bail extended until next week.

The bail for three has been extended to June 10 while 23-year-old Chang Jiun Haur, who was badly injured as a result of police assault, has had his bail extended until June 11.

The four are being probed for allegedly attempting to cause injuries to several police personnel near the barricaded toll-free access road in Bandar Mahkota Cheras. On that day, BMC residents had gathered in numbers to tear down the barriers which were put up by toll company Grand Saga to cut off the alternate route.

Driver still in shock

Chang, the driver of the vehicle, sustained severe injuries after being assaulted by at least 20 riot police personnel that night. He was admitted into the intensive care unit at Kajang general hospital by the police. Chang was battered with bruises and severely traumatised by the incident.

Today, all but Chang gave statements to the police at the Kajang police station.
Chang, who was present today, was excused from giving his statement, as he said he needed more time to recover from his state of shock. Meanwhile, Kajang police chief ACP Shakaruddin Che Mood said the investigation would be completed in the next two days. He added that almost 85 percent of the probe has been done. The four were represented by the MCA Youth legal bureau and its chief Gan Ping Sieu said that he would be writing to the inspector-general of police and the Home Ministry soon asking for an inquiry into the alleged police brutality.

The Bolehland Daily: Ban on fuel postponed

A government decision to ban foreign-registered vehicles from the purchase of subsidized gasoline in the border states have been postponed pending a cabinet-level meeting of the committee on Tuesday. The ban was to be implemented by tomorrow, affecting the sale of fuel up to 300 stations within 50 kilometers from the border with Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore.

Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak said it will be decided by Tuesday.

"Wait for the anti-inflation committee meeting, as I want to know the latest proposals on the matter. We will come out with a statement on Tuesday," he said

Najib, speaking to reporters after attending a security summit in Singapore, said that the cabinet committee would also study various proposals to the by the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry.

"We have to find a new effective date because there are other matters, like for example, can we have separate pumps because the Singaporeans are saying that they don't mind paying the market rate," he said.

The Bolehland Daily: Anwar was 'very cold' towards me

Anwar was 'very cold' towards me

The once close ties which ex-PKR Youth chief Mohamad Ezam Md Nor shared with Anwar Ibrahim has now been reduced to polite acknowledgment whenever the two meet at functions.

Revealing this in an interview with Malaysiakini, Ezam described PKR de facto leader Anwar as being "very cold" to him but was quick to add that he takes all this in good faith.

The BolehJokes humors and thoughts:

The Trojan horse allegation

He said, "These allegations come from two parties. Umno is worried that I would bring Anwar in. While Anwar is worried that I would bring PKR members into Umno. Both sides are saying, ‘don't worry, this is part of our game".

"I have no agenda. I returned to Umno without a personal agenda for anybody - not for PKR or Umno, or even Abdullah. I am in Umno with a reform agenda. To be a spy is the lowest moral standing that any politician should have and that's definitely not my stand."

Walk proceeds, Zaid booed by journos
Journalists and bloggers made a spontaneous decision to march in Dataran Merdeka this morning in support of press freedom despite a police ban on grounds of security and traffic. The Walk for Press Freedom, which was originally planned to take place at 9am as a precursor to a dialogue between the press and de facto law minister Zaid Ibrahim, took off only after the minister had left the event. Some 150 people participated in the walk led by Writers Alliance Malaysia chairperson Wong Chin Huat

"You must ask yourself first. Do you take up an unpopular issue with your newsowner," asked Zaid in the dialogue hosted by the NPC

"Don't assume all ministers are unreasonable," he said and received a chorus of boos from those in attendance.

And despite the jeers that came from the crowd, Zaid went on to calmly explain that he was all for media freedom. He however stressed on the importance of responsible journalism and the need for media regulation.

"We cannot have total freedom for the media. There is no such thing. If there is, there would be anarchy. If you want the government to deregulate media freedom, you must offer us some alternatives," argued Zaid.

The minister then stressed the need of media activists to come up with a substantial plan that can give assurance to the government that the implementation of media freedom will not be exploited to serve the interests of any particular parties.

"Do your editors believe in what you are fighting for? Are all the reporters together in this? You have to sort all these things out first, then give us your plan," Zaid told the crowd.

He said that not everyone in the media agreed with deregulating the media and argued that some senior reporters and editors in the field do not entirely agree with total media freedom.
