This is done so that UMNO have enough money to pay the Election Officers, Government Servants, AG, Police, Army, Special Force, Sultans and more illegal migrates to cheat in the coming 13th General Election. For the past few months Najib had been going around to this and that country to borrow money using development as the excuse but in actual fact needing money to ruin this country.
Every time the UMNO Government is in dire need of cash, they milk us dry.
The fool that claimed 75% of consumers use less than 300 kWh is in the bracket of 2% who have benefited much from corruption. The balance 23% are the poor, homeless and those who have not enjoy the luxury of having electricity.
75% Malaysians are cursing that they have to sacrifice more so that the 2% gold diggers can continue to enjoy their luxury life style.
There is a desperate NEED TO KICK THE UMNO GOVERNMENT OUT to expose the TRUTH.
In the meantime, I propose a new logo for TNB.
The Star Report:
PUTRAJAYA: Electricity will cost more by 7.12% from tomorrow in Peninsular Malaysia.
With the new tariff, the average rate for electricity is now 33.54 sen per kilowatt hour (kWh) from the previous 31.31 sen.
The new rate, however, will not affect 75% of domestic users whose consumption is less than 300kWh per month.
“These consumers will enjoy the old rate at between 21.8 sen per kWh and 33.4 sen.
The increase came about due to the rise in gas tariff by RM3, from RM10.70 per million British thermal units (MMBtu) to RM13.70.
The gas tariff will increase every six months starting tomorrow to December 2015 and will be adjusted to the market rate beginning 2016 when the price will be fully floated.
In announcing the increase, Energy, Green Technology and WaterMinister Datuk Seri Peter Chin Fah Kui said the Government would continue to look after the welfare of low income earners who need not pay more for electricity if it was lower than RM20 a month until the end of the year.
“The Government is expected to incur RM122mil a year to provide free power supply to 900,000 consumers in Peninsula Malaysia.
“Consumers using between 301kWh and 1,000kWh a month about 1.51 million domestic users will experience an increase in their monthly electricity bill of between RM0.07 and RM30.30,” he said at a joint press conference here with Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop yesterday.
In June 2008, the electricity tariff was increased by 24% after a revision in gas price from RM6.40 per MMBtu to RM14.31 and coal price was then set at US$75 per tonne.
Chin said low voltage commercial users such as retailers, shopowners and small restaurant operators, whose usage did not exceed 200kWh would, experience a maximum increase of 6.2% or RM4.60 a month due to the new rates while low voltage industrial users such as small-scale food processing companies using less than 200kWh would see their electricity bills go up by a maximum of 6% or RM4 a month.
On the gas tariff, Nor Mohamed said in spite of the increase, the Government and Petronas were still bearing subsidies estimated at RM25.64bil this year.
“The new price is still competitive compared to the market rate of alternative energy such as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and Medium Fuel Oil, which has risen from US$37.05 per barrel to US$93.90,” he said, adding that the decision would not affect local industry competitiveness in the long term.
So I just have to tell folks a hidden happening that took place when I was still very naïve.
Three Cap Pa Lung Malay men got into a discussion how to get Hussein Onn to step down as Premier because he was too straight as a leader plus they feel they could do a better job than him.
The topic of sex, sodomy and bribe were discussed. Knowing Hussein Onn has a high moral standing, bribe was their first choice and sex as second. The planning took several months because big sum of money was needed plus if there was a leaked they would have landed behind bars. Another factor was Tengku Razaleigh, whom they consider Royalty should not have a place in politic. So they have to make absolutely sure that Tengku Razaleigh will not have a chance to take over from Hussein Onn if he resigns willingly or force to resign. Certain people from Bank Bumiputra, business, money lender, driver and a gigolo were recruited. If I am correct the sum of RM2 million was secured and many IOU projects were sealed with two mamak lawyers.
While the whole charade is being planned and ready to roll, Hishamuddin wanted to come home for his vacation. But Hussein Onn was broke and refused offer from the three Chap Pa Lung Malay men for Hishamuddin’s flight home or to use Rakyat’s money for it. So Hishamuddin was forced to forget about coming home for his holiday. That was the period Hishamuddin was sodomized and got involved with boys.
Meanwhile RM1 million in a suitcase was planted in Hussein Onn’s house and he was forced to step down. Had Hussein Onn stood his ground and fought against the three Cap Pa Lung men, I believe he would have got the same treatment as Anwar.
The three Cap Pa Lung men, who forced Hussein Onn to step down, are the very same people who created Sodomy 1 for Anwar.
So you now understand why, one of them landed in IJN and the other two shivering in fear at their palaces in fear of Wikileak Cables.
For the past few weeks I tried very hard to look at the good side of Najib but found that his bad is more than his good.
So how can I be blame for being upset, frustrated and having a feeling of being cheated and misled by a leader that 27 million including me did not choose or want? Najib was given the premiership because Rosmah bribed Pak Lah with a RM200 million carrot. And with that those few thousand PARIAHS in UMNO are proud of.
UMNO has no pure Malays but CAP PA LUNG from
Abusive language is like a hoe, which is an object for digging into and cutting down. It is an instrument of destruction for ruffians who speak foul language. It only arises in the mouths of fools whoever praises those who deserve to be condemned or condemns those who deserve to be praised.
I am offended when Najib said “that the plight of the rakyat was uppermost in the Government’s mind when it decided not to increase the price of RON 95 petrol, diesel and liquefied petroleum gas causing a heavier financial burden and does not constitute good governance. It may be a bit difficult for the people to understand this but for those who know ELEMENTARY Economics, they will understand.”
Excuse me! Najib thinks that those with degree in Economic only understand what he is bullshitting. There are millions like me balancing the household expenditure without a certificate. We learnt from experience by not repeating our mistake. UMNO Government cannot do that because they keep on repeating their mistakes. Take the example of APs. Why is the Government giving FREE money to RICH cronies, generation after generation? The Gold Reserve that were transferred out by Mahathir, Daim, Yaakob, Pak Lah, Khairy, Zeti, Vincent Tan and Rosmah into their private vault. Bring that back. The logging and Petronas money, where did they go? Profit from Rice and Sugar into which Sendiri Pockets. EPF and Zakat duit pergi mana? You want me to continue? Until Najib is bury six feet underground pun tak habis, habis. That is how long we were cheated and con by UMNO. Today we can still collect back RM200 billion from these Rich Cronies. It is just a matter of WANT or DON’T WANT. So stop giving excuses about subsidies.
UMNO Government must and is obliged to take care of the Rakyat. That is call good governance. Looking after a handful of gold diggers is immoral.
When Najib and family went to
UMNO, a one race party with many holes is judging others like DAP which has many races as members, should consider themselves lucky that they are still around.
I believe many Malaysians will not bow to money but will bow to the cause of righteousness when the 13th General Election is call.
The task is as hard as weeding out the brightest youngsters for places on Oxford and Cambridge Universities' most popular courses. There are 16 candidates for every vacancy and somehow the 2,000 applicants have to be whittled down to 120 by the time the course starts. We are not talking about law and medicine at Britain's most prestigious universities, though. This is Finland and the applicants are desperate for a job in what is the most sought-after profession in their country: teaching.
Finland is the country that has topped the international league table of the developed world's education systems for almost all of the past decade. And England's Education Secretary, Michael Gove, has been taking a close look at its policies to see if there is anything he can glean from them to improve standards over here. Finland's top-level ranking is based on its performance in the PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) tests of 15-year-olds around the globe in reading, maths and science. It is published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
Professor Jari Lavonen, the head of the Department of Teacher Education at the University of Helsinki, is the man with the enviable task, in some eyes, of whittling down the pack. He is in no doubt as to how Finland has got to this position. "We decided all teachers should have a master's degree – putting teaching on an equal footing with law and medicine," he says. "Teacher education is therefore very attractive." Figures showed that the highest-flying youngsters then started flocking to the profession because of its new-found prestige.
The applicants are all given a book to read before being grilled on their understanding of it. Then the 300 top performers are interviewed before the remaining 120 are offered places. "We want to find out how suitable a person is for teaching," he says. "Last year, it was more difficult to come on to a primary-education programme than to go to medical school. The competition was more heavy."
Mr Gove has already said he would like to go down the Finnish path. A common theme among three of the top-performing nations – Singapore, South Korea and Finland – is that they all attract the best talent into the profession by setting high standards for recruitment. Mr Gove's answer to this is to limit entrance to the profession to those who have better than a third-class degree. He has come in for a fair amount of criticism here, with teachers' leaders arguing that it would prohibit people such as the Conservatives' own maths guru, Carol Vorderman, from entering the profession. The brightest people in their subject area may not always be the best communicators in the classroom, so the argument goes.
Professor Lavonen is wary of the idea that foreign governments can "cherry pick" parts of the Finnish education system and ignore the rest. There is, he argues, a second part of the equation: the introduction of a free compulsory education system for all, which goes hand in glove with the recruitment process to create a successful education system. It is illegal to charge fees in the Finnish education system, so even those schools that are run privately take their funding from the state. Its schools are comprehensive in that there is no selection of pupils.
They are less formal and more relaxed than schools in the UK. The man in jeans and an open-necked shirt who greets us at the Taivallahti comprehensive school in Helsinki (an all-in school for seven to 16-year-olds) turns out to be the principal, Hannu Kosonen. His pupils – in common with those in the rest of Finland – do not wear a uniform. Discipline appears good. No one is photographing the teacher to put her picture on YouTube.
The teachers are not beset by targets, in fear of inspections or how well their schools do in league tables. There are simply no league tables or inspections. "They are academics and well trained, so we trust them," says Professor Lavonen. "This is an important feeling: they don't need any inspection. Also, we don't have a system of national testing. The teachers are trusted to assess their own pupils." This is presumably because there is no pressure to tweak the results to do well in league tables.
Class sizes are smaller than in the UK. Mr Kosonen limits them to 20 in the first two years of schooling and the sixth and seventh year (12 and 13-year-olds). They are also mixed ability, with educators believing the teachers are well-enough trained to cope with a wider range of ability in their classes. If pupils fall behind, a second teacher can be sent in to help them to catch up.
Of course, it may help that Finland as a country does not have the vast gap in household incomes of the UK, and so social mobility is not such an issue over there. The gap is just beginning to widen, though, so it may be something it has to look out for.
Mr Kosonen also points to another feature of Finnish life for producing the country's brilliant reading results: the Government's decision to ban the dubbing of all foreign films and television shows. This means youngsters can watch shows such as Dalziel and Pascoe and Anne Robinson's The Weakest Link in all their English glory in their homes of an evening and get to grips better with the language.
A visit to last month's teachers' union conferences in the UK showed a flurry of concerns about headteachers "dropping in" to classrooms to check on their teachers' standards. Mr Kosonen does this, too, and has asked each member of his staff to come up with an idea for developing their teaching. He does not see himself as an inquisitor, though.
Nina Koskinen, a primary-class teacher at the school, says: "Teachers do like to get feedback on what they do, but it is totally different over here to the UK. One of the things here is that principals should be like coaches." She says of the English system of testing and inspection: "What would be the advantage of that? It really seems to be something that gives you pressure in terms of paperwork and all that."
The differences between Finland and the English system do not stop with compulsory schooling, though. After the age of 16, youngsters decide whether they opt for an academic or vocational schooling. There is also still a divide at university level between the academic universities and the polytechnics (as the government calls them) or the universities of applied science, as they style themselves. Oh, and there is the little matter that university tuition is still free for home and EU students. A UK youngster would not have to spend a penny on tuition fees in Finland. The country is experimenting with charges for overseas students but only a handful of universities are taking part in this pilot.
Thomas Wilhelmsson, the rector of Helsinki University, ranked in the world's top 100 universities, says: "The most that has been discussed is whether we should charge fees for overseas students. Free education is seen as a very central part of the Finnish welfare-state system. The British example is a scary example. If you take tuition fees [from students], you will withdraw some amount of basic funding for the system."
This is a very different system to England's, and it would be fair to point out Finland has to deal with a school population of just under 600,000, compared with the seven million in England and Wales. But Finland's schools and universities have been besieged by Germans, Chinese, Thais, Spaniards and Austrians desperate to find out the system's recipe for success. It remains to be seen how much of the Finnish education system we will seek to ape (teachers over here would love Mr Gove to adopt the whole package).
A passing thought occurs, though, as a documentary about how Finland coped with last winter's snow flashes on to the television screen. At one stage it was 80 centimetres deep, but the under-floor heated sidewalks and streets soon had it cleared. Ice-breakers made sure the runway at the airport was cleared after 30 minutes. Maybe we should send someone over to study that as well.
KEY FEATURES OF THE FINNISH EDUCATION SYSTEM
All teachers must have a master's degree before they start teaching.
Compulsory schooling starts at seven with voluntary play-based kindergarten for younger children.
No national testing, inspections or school league tables. The government looks at an 8 to 10 per cent sample of pupils' work to check on performance.
Pupils transfer to either an academic or a vocational school at the age of 16 after nine years of compulsory schooling.
No university fees for home or EU students. Pilot of fees for overseas students from outside the EU.
While Malaysia is wasting time and money going back and fro English to Bahasa, Bahasa to English, English to Bahasa...............on and on.......................
Then we have teachers wearing baju kurung and high heels teaching students how to play netballs, hockey, badminton and whatever...................
Then we have teachers sending sms and having conversations on the handphone while supposingly teaching in class.
Then we have teachers asking to share a smoke with students in the toilet.
Then we have teachers asking for sex from the students.
Then we have owner of private school touching the breast of female students.
What does the Education Ministry do?
They go round the world with their mistresses for sex studies.
