Some Early Xmas & New Year Presents



We are certainly gonna be blessed this festive season. Presents are just coming along our way. Our Healthy MINIster announced recently, that in the near future we will no longer be burdened by having to pay for the medicine of the less fortunate who have to attend gomen health facilities.
Next came PLUS saying that there will be a 10% plus for those using its highways and expressways. Those who don't want to be subjected to this 10% present can go and use the byways and the old federal trunk roads. Once again this present is to ensure that the gomen is not burdened, for if the 10% increase is not allowed, it would have to compensate PLUS to the tune of RM154 mil a year or RM38 bil for the next 33 years. Opposition leader Lim Kit Siang says hogwash and thinks Samy knows nuts about maths. Lim has this to say ::
The second question is where Samy Vellu had learnt his maths – as compensation of RM154 million a year does not add up to a grand total of RM38 billion for the next 33 years – as the total is RM5 billion and not RM38 billion!
Thirdly, why must compensation be paid to PLUS for the next 33 years till 2038, when the 30-year NSE concession which started in May 1988 is to end in 2030 after a 12-yeasr extension in 1999? With another 25 years to run for the concession, at the compensation rate of RM154 million a year, the total compensation liable till the end of the concession is RM3.85 billion – one tenth of Samy Vellu’s hyperbolic claim of RM38 billion! Or is there a secret compact that there would be another extension of the NSE concession, despite the earlier extension of the original 30-year NSE concession to 42 years?

Why the lopsided agreement, Datuk Samy please do tell us all about it.
Not to be left out, Penang Port Sdn Bhd (PPSB) will up the ferry fare by 233%, from the present 60 sen to RM2 soon. PPSB claims that the State Gomen of the 'decaying state' has given the go ahead. This was refuted by the 'decaying state' Chief MINIster the very next day. He said that a 100% increase was being considered ie from 60sen to RM1.20! Whether it will be a 233% or a 100% present, ferry users will know soon.
The people of Selangor will be saying Syabas this and Syabas that in 2006. For in an early announcement, Syabas says that water rates will be going up in 2006. Much joy for Syabas but not for the people of Selangor.
All the above mentioned presents will definitely not be welcomed by the people, for they can only further burden the people who are already burdened with the double price increase in petrol this year
Wiith the many presents coming your way from the gomen and bodies corporate there will be no need for any more presents from me, so i'll just wish you all :: "Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year."
