TNB insane Rates for electricity for heavy domestic consumers

May 23, 2018

I posted this in our alma mater WA group;

Yb @⁨Manaf Hashim⁩, are you ending your directorship of TNB? Before you go, please propose the rates for the heavy domestic consumers to be revised downwards. At 55 sen or is it 57sen it is grossly expensive and taxing.

I hv raised this matter with you many moons ago

I got a reply from a cynic

I thought you didn’t mind paying for it. You didn’t mind paying GST. Now GST is 0% so you should be able to afford your TNB bills. 😜

And this is my response

Off course. How could I forget the substantial monthly excess money that I would have from the zeroing. My bad!

That is the trouble with nonPartisan social activism, you forget about self, issues above self, non populist.

YB, The request I asked still stands, on behalf of heavy consumers and those who do not benefit much from the GST zeroing. There are many, esp those who shouted the most against the non populist tax structure, the GST. It will come back to haunt them I’m sure.

Principally we know the excesses and inefficiency within TNB, so please address those first for TNB to maintain THE SAME level of profit if not better. The rates structure is insanely taxing.

The Machiavelli’s at work post GE14

May 13, 2018

The 11 days in the ring is finally over. But the post election fever has never been as heated as this. Everyone is a pundit. The WA group becomes overheated too frequently.

While many of us novices are drowned in this euphoria, the real pro and the Machiavellians are busy trying to outfox one another. The game of throne has started. This is certainly not the end of the game.

In the heated post election debates, it is important that everyone exercises decorum and shows magnanimity to fellow MALAYSIAN neighbors and colleagues in the other camp. This is just s democracy no different from electing the class monitor or the rep to the Victualling Committee. All of us need to Get back to work together, to live as neighbors, to continue being fellow congregants, and to start engaging our ADUN and MP.

Your day in the ring came to an end after that dip in that bottle of indigo ink.

The best thing one can do now for Malaysia 🇲🇾 is to be active in your community, in Civil societies or in any social enterprise. Otherwise you are just a spectator and a keyboard wa**er.

I will continue my work with myPj. With this in mind mypj will start cracking next week to prepare our reengagement with our elected rep who has promised us to re/engage 2 weeks after GE14.

If we are seriously pursuing true democracy we have to learn to respect differing opinions and different political stands. As much as you are entitled to express your political preference as learned professors trying to influence others, so is Tony.

So this idea of boycott is in my opinion is taking us backward, to the days when ppl were asked to boycott the LOAF becos of mahathir.

Nobody is stupid nobody is clever in a democracy.

To say that someone is stupid, orang kampung is stupid, or orang bandar is stupid, is totally undemocratic.

Many political novices make that fatal mistake of generalising voters as stupid. They are not

Sometimes acting stupid or being stupid could be the wisest thing one could have done.

Overdoing on lies

May 5, 2018

fake news, insinuations, slanders, hasutans, shadow mongering, if overdone make truths insignificant and make discrimination truths and lies so difficult.

Tactically the news machine by DAP /pakatan allies and now with the chief on its side has done itself a lot of tactical injustice.

People began to think and ask, even among the Chinese. My greatest surprise is to find a more viable pj mca. The MCA/Barisan chief Of pj utara/ now Damansara offers a refreshing mca. Ppl think mca is dead, but no.

That’s my report from the ground.
