PM’s Secretary Resigned


The PM’s Principal Private Secretary, Datuk Tajuddin Wahab, is being rumored to have resigned from the post that he had held since at least more that 10 years ago.

It is believed that the resignation was the result of a misunderstanding between Tajuddin and his boss, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

It is also being widely said that Tajuddin’s departure from the corridor of power was preceded by an expected outburst where Tajuddin was said to have thrown his letter of resignation into Abdullah’s desk.

I was told by one of Abdullah’s gurkhas that after the said incidence in the PM’s office, Tajuddin had immediately left to join her daughter who is studying in London.

If this story is true and nothing else but the truth, Malaysians will definitely want to know as to why Tajuddin had made such an abrupt exit from the corridor of power.

Tajuddin had been one of Abdullah’s most loyal officers since when Abdullah was in the Foreign Ministry. He was also one of the late Endon’s favourites.

Lately, it was said that Tajuddin was facing intense pressures from the Oxbridge bunch at Level 4. Being the Principal Private Secretary, Tajuddin was also said to feel betrayed when he was being by-passed by some of the young chicos in dealing with the PM’s official affairs.

Abdullah, his new wife and children are now said to be in Perth, Australia. Ask him about this latest development in the corridor of power when he comes back home on July 27, 2007.

Patrick Badawi Or Us?


PM Abdullah Badawi had said many times before, he hated mega projects. That was one of the many reasons why he had cancelled the scenic bridge project linking JB and Singapore.

At first, many Malaysians believed in what you had said, Mr. PM. But now, we know why you cancelled the bridge project in JB. It is because your son, Patrick Badawi, is not getting anything out of it. Correct?

Now, it is true that Patrick Badawi – your filthy rich son who had bought you a mansion in Perth, your powerful son who is manipulating the 4th floor bunch in Putrajaya, and your son who is now one of your top advisors in business and economy – are the beneficiary to the two projects described in the news item below?

Penang Bridge Loan Deal Signed

PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia and China inked a RM2.7bil US$800mil) loan agreement, paving the way for the construction of the second Penang Bridge.

The loan facility is the largest given by China for a single project in a foreign country so far.

The terms of the loan agreement, which include an interest rate of 3% per annum over 20 years, is the most favourable offered to a foreign country.

With construction scheduled to begin in November and completion by 2011, the 23km-bridge – of which 17km will be over water – will be the longest bridge in South-East Asia.

Putrajaya 2 In Penang

Patrick Lim's Batu Kawan. Another new administrative capital?

That's the talk in the market. In Penang, at least. Patrick's Equine Capital has a huge landbank in Batu Kawan in the Prime Minister's home state, and is believed to have finally received the green light to turn it into a mega property development like nothing Penang has witnessed.

Lim, who is also known as Patrick Badawi for his perceived closeness to the PM, rose to prominence for being the Chosen One to develop Pulau Duyong in Terengganu and organize the Monsoon Cup, a pet event of Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

Equine and friends will benefit immensely from another mega project on Penang island, including the multi-billion ringgit 2nd Penang bridge. Equine also owns a quarter of the 239-acre Penang Turf Club, which has been earmarked to be Penang's new city centre. A Penang Towers Complex will be built. The redevelopment of the Penang Turf Club is estimated to generate a value of RM25 billion over 10 years, double that of the KLCC's!

The Batu Kawan project will be as grand as the Iskandar Development Region in Johor and is expected to offer foreigners the same NEP-free incentives. There'll also be a bullet train service that zips through it, I believe.

Question is, do we need another Administrative capital?

I am sure the financial journalists who are going to Penang for a briefing tomorrow on the country's latest mega-mega project will ask the tough questions but one thing's for sure, mega projects are well and alive.

Malaysians are not jealous of Patrick Badawi. But, enough is enough, Mr. PM. Now you have to choose between us or him.

If you choose to be with us who put you to power, then you have to immediately sever your linkage with Patrick Badawi.

But, if you rather choose to be with him, it is high time for you to voluntarily pack and leave the corridor of power before the next general elections.

Remember this Mr. PM. We, Malaysians, are keeping track of what you have said and done. And, don’t ever forget that GOD is watching you. Think about it, please!

RPK’s Expose Put Abdullah In A Fix


YM Raja Petra Kamarudin of is one hell of a writer. The latest posting in his weekly column - The Corridors Of Power - with the title Please IGP, explain this!, is mind boggling.

What do we think will happen next? Will Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi revoke his decision to re-appoint Tan Sri Musa Hassan as the IGP which he had already announced last Monday? Will he order the ACA to conduct a thorough investigation on the allegations made by RPK? Will he form a special squad to crackdown the underworld network? Or, will he just order RPK to be detained for questioning?

Anyhow, after reading RPK’s expose over and over again, I am of the opinion that RPK is not actually ‘shooting’ at the IGP. He is actually ‘shooting’ at a bigger fish. May be at Abdullah as the Minister of Internal Security.

If you care to read RPK’s latest posting on the IGP with his earlier ones on similar or related topics, including the one when he mentioned that during the 2004 General Elections there was one underworld leader who made a cash donation of RM20 million to Abdullah, then my theory above may be right.

One more thing, if any police top brass in Bukit Aman can enlighten us on who was the person that introduced BK Tan and his proxy company to bid for the Police’s computer system, then the link of this underworld mafia to Putrajaya may become even clearer.

I was told that it was one of Abdullah’s family members who introduced BK Tan and his proxy company to Bukit Aman. Is this true or just a wild accusation? Tan Sri Musa, please tell us, is this not true?

Then comes the question of Datuk Johari Baharom’s alleged RM5 million deal with the underworld mafia. Now, Joe is being cleared by the ACA of that allegation. So, if Joe does not wallop the money, who then took the money? Who framed him? Is he one of those smart oxbridge chicos from Level Four in Putrajaya? I heard so. But then again, it might be false!

Abdullah has no choice. He must act fast. If he needs to arrest RPK, do it now. But, please remember RPK is not alone. Majority of Malaysian net-citizens are with him.

But, if he thinks Musa must be spared from RPK’s latest bombardment, Abdullah must think twice because Abdullah himself is actually the one under attack.

Remember this. In one of his earlier postings on the underworld mafia, RPK once said “all roads lead to Putrajaya” and not to Bukit Aman in Kuala Lumpur. What does this means? I hope RPK will elaborate on this in his next posting. Also please expose, who actually took the RM5 million from the underworld mafia, if it is not Joe!

A Piece Of Garbage?

The information below was sent to me via the conventional mail. The sender is unknown. His motive is also unexplained. I have been studying this piece of information since the past three weeks. The more I read it, the more I want to share it with other Malaysian cyber-citizens.

So, here it is. Let us together figure it out if this is a secret dossier or just a piece of garbage to entangle us to the webs of conspiracy theories.

“Singapore’s Policy Approach (Foreign Policy Ethics) towards Malaysia’s power change from Mahathir to Abdullah can be summed-up as follows:

1. During the transition period, entrap Abdullah into security and intelligence dossiers of Singapore with an all-round ‘delightful predatory’ approaches and deceptions.

2. Abdullah’s ‘outwardly’ pious image is sufficient to impress the Malays for Singapore to be comfortable with Malaysia’s political-religious demands and whims.

3. Exploiting Abdullah’s clean and humanely image but hidden deceptively, inclinations for extravagance, and fun-loving, susceptibility to flattery, easily carried away with big ideas but whimsical and inconsistent.

4. Abdullah’s ideas toward Singapore is a common prevalence of dislikes and distastes for strife or any sorts of disagreement. This enables Singapore to perpetuate lingering issues to its advantage by show of diligence and honesty towards Abdullah.

5. Thus, from the friendly and neighborly spirit that rules amongst Abdullah’s own-chosen elites, Singapore to shape it into a single ‘household’. Thailand and Indonesia seem to be the lesser kinds in comparison.

6. A marvelous lee-way for Singapore to get to the lower strata of the Malaysian politics in its agenda to rid Singapore of the geographical constraint.

7. A major shift of strategy preferring economic tactics from military contingencies for a safe predictable period at Singapore’s own initiatives.

8. Until such time when the thinking Malaysians discover that IDR is actually a ‘whimsical Pak Lah’s initiatives’ Singapore will continue to be the Malaysian scourge!!. [May 20, 2007]”

So, what do you think? A piece of garbage? Well, your verdict is as good as mine - the majority rules.
