Reducing Unemployment : What UMNO Does With The “Un-Employables”….
Posted by ErnieJean on February 11, 2009
As we all know, most of Nor Mohamed’s sugar coated predictions are to be taken with a pinch of salt.
So, it’s hardly a surprise when MIER (Malaysian Institute of Economy Research) came up recently with , I think, a more realistic assessment of the unemployment rate of 4.5%. In fact an economist Datuk Dr. Zainal Aznan Tusof predicted that the figure could very well go up to 6%. That’s definitely an alarming thought, since during the good times, unemployment rates were kept well below 3%.
With so many people being retrenched, what do you think our UMNO-led government is going to do?
With so many of them boasting about being graduates from Oxford, Cambridge, Hardknocks and Whatnots, it’s only fair that our expectations are high, no?
How utterly dissapointing it is to see the “brilliant” minds of our leaders coming up with such re-employment scheme!!!!

Apologise or face daily demos, warns Umno Youth
KUALA LUMPUR: Umno Youth wants DAP national chairman Karpal Singh to drop any lawsuit against the Sultan of Perak or it will demonstrate outside his office in Jalan Pudu every day. (Demonstrate everyday!!!!??? Lu orang tak payah kerja ar!!!!??? )
“We want any action to bring the Sultan to court to cease immediately because it can jeopardise public security and Karpal Singh must ask for forgiveness from the Sultan,” said Serdang Umno Youth chief Ungku Mat Salleh.
They also called for the arrest of PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and former Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin for not heeding the Sultan’s directive that the latter resign.
Some 50 Umno Youth members from Selangor and Federal Territory marched to Karpal Singh’s office yesterday. The demonstration stopped rush hour traffic around the busy Puduraya area.
Demonstrate everyday!!!!???? These people don’t need to make a living meh? I must be mistaken because I assumed since times are bad, people should be working doubly hard to put food on their tables. Perhaps this sort of “occupation” pays handsomely……too bad I’m “over-qualified” 😛
But then again, this bunch of hooligans represent UMNO and we all know how UMNO takes care so absolutely lovingly of their “volunteers”, right? Be it the by-election, house-warming, ceramahs, visitation to some charity homes, there’s always the meal allowances, accomodation allowances, transportation allowances, exposure-to-hot-sun allowances, hooliganism allowances, and so on and so forth to look forward to, no?
And by the way, you UMNO goons really think we Malaysians forget soooo easily, don’t you?
If anyone needs to apologise to their Sultan for being rude and disrespectful, it should be the leaders of UMNO!! Remember this? Well, most of us still do…….so how?
22 Barisan Nasional (BN) state assemblymen led by the secretary of the State Umno Liaison Body, Datuk Rosol Wahid, who opposed the appointment of Ahmad as the Terengganu Menteri Besar in place of Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, arrived at Istana Tetamu about 7.50 am to hand over the letter of protest on the appointment.
Rosol, who was not allowed to enter the palace, later handed over the letter to the Secretary of the Terengganu Regency Advisory Council, Shafie Ali.
When met by reporters, Rosol said the letter, among other tings, stated that all the 22 BN elected representatives fully supported the reppointment of Idris as the Menteri Besar and rejected Ahmad’s appointment as the new MB.
“Our support for Datuk Seri Idris is unanimous. There is no other person qualified to hold the Menteri Besar’s post apart from him (Idris),” Rosol said.
He said Ahmad’s appointment was invalid and hoped that those involved would take a serious view on the matter as it involved the interest of the people in the state.
He said if Ahmad were to proceed with his intention to take the oath of office as Menteri Besar, the Kijal Assemblyman would be violating the party rules and action could be taken against him, including expulsion from the party.
“That’s why we sent the letter of protest because Umno and BN secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor had informed me last night that Ahmad would be contravening the Umno constitution should he take the oath of office,” he said.
Rosol said the protest letter had been sent to Ahmad and a copy to the Head of the MPPR.
Since the Terengganu BN won in the general election on March 8, winning 24 of the 32 State Assembly seats and seven of the eight parliamentary seats, the state government had functioned without a Menteri Besar.
On Saturday, Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said disciplinary action could be taken against Ahmad if he were to accept the post of Terengganu Menteri Besar as he would be going against the instruction of the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who wanted Idris to remain as the MB.
Abdullah, who is also BN chairman and Umno president, had issued a letter nominating Idris as the Terengganu Menteri Besar.
Meanwhile, several supporters of Idris were seen gathering at the official resi
dence of the Menteri Besar at Seri Iman, here, to give their support to the Jertih Assemblyman to be reappointed as the MB for a second term.
