PUTRAJAYA: The allegations being spread to create an unsettled political atmosphere lately are tantamount to treachery, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said.
He said the allegations and news championing those who broke the law through SMS, blogs and YouTube were akin to treachery.
“These stories and SMS do not have any benefit. It is a deliberately attempt to create a negative perception (of the Government).
“This is not the doing of a race that wants to progress,” he said, hoping that the rakyat would not be influenced by it all.
“There is total disregard for the law and no one is giving importance to what is right and wrong any more,” he said, advising Malaysians to disregard all such attempts.
Unfortunately, however, he said that these allegations made interesting fodder for gossip.
Addressing staff of the Prime Minister’s Department at its monthly gathering here yesterday, Abdullah said he was also sad that the recent spate of events showed that the principles of the Rukunegara had been tarnished.
Abdullah assured Malaysians that the Government, which was given the mandate to rule in the last general election, had come up with various measures to reduce their financial burden due to the rising cost for fuel and goods.
Stating that peace had to be given priority, he added that enforcement agencies must continue to strictly perform their duty to help alleviate the people’s fear of food shortage and the safety of their family.
“The rakyat must be convinced to continue to progress and help develop the country and that this country is safe for all,” he said.
Later, speaking to reporters after holding bilateral talks with several leaders of the Developing Eight countries, Abdullah said he wanted bloggers to stop speculating and spreading rumours on the Internet.
“I want to tell the blogs to stop all this. They are also responsible for what has happened. The best thing they could do is to stop.”
Pak Lah, you are still missing the point. Remember March 8? You led-BN to its worst performance ever since and you blamed cyberworld especially bloggers for spreading lies. Now you are doing it again. You should realise by now, BN failed to win 2/3 majority was because of the lies and deceits propagated by your party throughout the whole 4 years tenure. Please give credit to the rakyat who can differentiate right from wrong and truth from lies.
Even if BN has campaigned in cyberspace it would still lose many seats because the people are fed-up with the lies and corruption they hear. Here is a suggestion, send you UMNO cyber troopers to counter all the lies and deceits propagate by irresponsible bloggers 🙂
“The people who resist change will be confronted by the growing number of people who see that better ways…are available thanks to technology.” – Bill Gates.
I wanted to compile a list of lies by Pak Lah and his government so I googled for it. Somebody already compiled the list, (well he compiled a list specifically on oil price), so I should just quote from the man himself – Matthias Chang and added some of other ‘lies’.
LIE NO. 1
The Star – 25th May 2008 Front Page
“There is more good news. There will be no hike in petrol prices at least until September, despite spiraling global crude oil prices. There were fears of a price increase, particularly after Indonesia raised fuel prices by 30% yesterday”.
LIE NO. 2
The Star – 6th June 2008 Page 8
“The decision to expedite the announcement of the increase in petrol and diesel prices was not an ‘afterthought’ but rather a need, said the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad. Admitting that the ministry had assured consumers recently that there would be no increase in fuel prices until August, Shahrir explained that the Government could no longer delay the decision.”
– Which is correct – September or August? Whatever, it was a lie!
The New Straits Times – 9th June 2008 Page 6
“The current prices of petrol and diesel will be maintained until next March  even if world oil prices touch US$200 (RM660) a barrel, said Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad”.
– When crude price reached US$80, the Government announced an increase in petrol prices. When it hit US$137 per barrel, the Government announced a hefty 40% hike amounting to an increase of RM 78 sen per litre of petrol and RM1 for diesel. Does this idiotic Minister think we are so stupid and naive to believe that when crude hits US$200 per barrel there will be no increase until March 2009?
LIE NO. 4
The Sun – 11th June 2008 Front Page
“The price of fuel will stay for the rest of the year, the Cabinet decided yesterday. This is to allow people time to adjust to the situation”
The Star – 11th June 2008
– Once again, one idiot says March, 2009 the other idiot says the end of 2008. Who do you trust?
LIE NO. 5
– Who is telling the truth? One must be lying, looking at Pak Lah’s track records, hmm.. not good.
LIE NO. 6
THE STAR March 6, 2007 -PM: Reports that I’m remarried just rumours
KUALA LUMPUR Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said reports on the Internet that he had remarried were only “rumours”.
The Prime Minister, who was asked the question after attending the Bank Negara board of directors’ quarterly meeting Tuesday, said, “It’s just rumours, so only rumours, lah”
Bernama reported the ‘rumour’ here
LIE NO. 7
The Star February 13, 2008 – Parliament won’t be dissolved today, says PM
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi put an end to such speculation, telling reporters here yesterday: “Esok tak ada (No, it won’t be tomorrow)”.
The Star February 13, 2008 – Parliament dissolved, elections on
PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has announced that Parliament has been dissolved, paving the way for the 12th general election.
