Sejurus selepas saya dilantik sebagai Menteri Kewangan pada Oktober 2008, saya telah menukar status Akta Rahsia Rasmi (OSA) supaya tidak lagi termaktub dibawah akta berkenaan. Akibat itu, semua perjanjian konsesi-konsesi tol jalanraya boleh disemak oleh orang-ramai.
Tidak lama selepas itu, kerajaan saya telah mengumumkan bahawa untuk menghapuskan kesemua konsesi tol jalanraya di negara ini memerlukan kos RM231 bilion.
Tetapi, pada masa itu pemimpin DAP - Tony Pua menuduh kita sebagai penipu. Menurutnya, berdasarkan perkiraan dibuatnya, ia hanya melibatkan kos RM25 bilion sahaja, dan bukan RM231 bilion sebagaimana yang kita dedahkan.
Semalam, Menteri Kerja Raya dari kerajaan Pakatan memberitahu parlimen bahawa adalah sangat sukar untuk menghapuskan semua tol seperti yang dijanjikan kerana kos untuk berbuat demikian ialah sebanyak RM400 bilion - jauh lebih tinggi dari apa yang telah kerajaan BN umumkan dahulu.
Oleh itu, saya mencadang kerajaan Pakatan seharusnya menugaskan Tony Pua dalam usaha menghapuskan semua tol jalanraya bagi menepati antara janji utama manifesto PRU14 mereka.
Saya percaya bahawa Tony Pua dan DAP bukan penipu dan pengiraan mereka yang jauh lebih murah adalah tepat - bukan hanya dibuat untuk menipu undi rakyat dan tidak mungkin DAP selalu salah titik perpuluhan
Sekarang, saya juga pengguna jalanraya yang membayar tol. Oleh itu, saya juga turut gembira jika semua tol dihapuskan sebagaimana janji manifesto Pakatan Harapan. Apatah lagi, syarikat konsesi-konsesi tol berkenaan bukan kroni mahupun rakan-rakan saya tetapi mereka adalah dari era seorang perdana menteri sebelum saya.
Ketika saya menjadi PM, saya berterusan berusaha untuk menghapuskan banyak plaza tol di seluruh negara dan pada tempoh ini, malah tidak ada satu tol lebuhraya pun yang dimiliki oleh syarikat kerajaan bersama KWSP, PLUS Highways Berhad menaikkan kadar tol walaupun sekali.
Tetapi, harus diketahui bahawa kerajaan saya juga menghadapi kesukaran ketika itu untuk tidak membenarkan tol dimiliki pihak swasta dari menaikkan kadar tol kerana terikat dengan perjanjian konsesi yang dirunding dan dimeterai semasa Tun Dr Mahathir adalah Perdana Menteri ke-4.
My friend then asked me - How? Who is the liar here?
Well, I told her I'm not sure.
Najib said in 2008 the cost of getting rid of the tolls was RM231 billion but the Oxford (or is it Cambridge) guy Tony Pua at that time said Najib was lying because according to his calculation the cost was just RM25 billion.
So, Pakatan Harapan put it in their GE14 manifesto that they will get rid of the tolls.,,,among other sweet promises.
Now that they had won, they said the cost of removing the tolls is RM400 billion.
Really, I'm not sure who is the liar now, but one thing for sure, the tolls are most likely going to stay.
So much for election manifesto.
Well, whatever lah.
Life goes on, right.
My only complaint this time is that, why la Najib nowadays keeps writing in Bahasa Malaysia.
Difficult for high class people and the Attorney General to understand, okay.
Write la in English.
Najib doesn't know ka we are now
Towards better English in Malaysia
Yup, I'm actually more interested in this matter.
And this time I want to recommend for us to apply the rebooted Look East Policy to improve our usage of English.
Seriously, the Japanese have the best way in applying their mastery of the English language.
Watch this video by an Englishman who teaches English in Japan,
Yup, Japanese are the best, even when it comes to English.
They know how to use the language to make money.
Hey, really, okay.
That's why I don't really give a shit when people said my English is bad.
Like the Japanese, I put it to good use no matter what.
I use it to write this blog and you all read it. Probably became more clever and entertained some more :)
By the way, my best Japanese friend speaks bloody good English, okay. He got a PhD from a UK university.
I'm planning to see him in Tokyo this autumn. Kinda miss the guy.
Hopefully I can get leave to go there.
Okay, that's all.
Annie is quoting from a thief. Even Nazri is distancing himself from Najib, hahahaReplyDelete
What wrong with Annie quoting from ex-PM.?Delete
I think Najib is renowned in the whole world with stirling record for integrity and honesty. He is Mr Clean.
Najib statements had been always proven to be credible. Last time he said he want to sue WSJ on Tuesday, he even stated the exact day.
That is reason why Annie is always quoting Najib, because Najib is truthful black and white.
I agree with Annie, BM is more important BM.
I think English should be banned in the country totally.
Anyone, with exception Life of Annie blog, should not be allowed speak or write in English. They should be fined is breaking the rule except for Annie. Only Annie can use English.
Why learn Japanese when the whole world wants to learn Mandarin?ReplyDelete

Actually, only the very dumbest bloggers would use him as a source of authority.
Even Khaled, Nazri and Johari are warning Umgnok how disastrous this strategy is.
...if only he could get a refund from the "psy-war operatives" who were paid hundreds of millions to...
...lose PRU14 so badly.
Anyway, let them keep posting his face lah. Some people are just too stupid to learn, I guess...

Haaa tepuk tepuk.
Must be a real headache for Annie to write in a way so as not to offend the clever PH here.
My wife's friend went to EPF this morning and tried to ask for the i-suri. Apparently for this 1st phase, only housewives whose husbands earning up to RM1,500 qualify.ReplyDelete
Hmmm I don't think there's such requirement when PH gomen announced the scheme.
Looks like another capati to the rakyats.

Harap Tony Pua should response to this.If Najib comment is true, Tony Pua should apologise to the rakyat for misleading them with his "too good" and unsensical story.ReplyDelete
All of us should believe Najib Razak because he is like the best PM we ever had. Never before have Malaysia become so famous that our 1MDB becomes a case investigated worldwide. We must all thank Najib for this . He had singlehandedly make our country known as a kleptocratic regime and will be a history lesson all over the world. I think people like Annie and her gang will forever be indebted to himReplyDelete
How i missed the good old days with BN.ReplyDelete
Yes the good old days when our country is renowned all over the world as the No. 1 Kleptocrat country.Delete
Let us wait the answer from Tony Pua.I am sure he is not a liar and have some figures to back his claim.ReplyDelete
That bucktooth guy is shivering in his pant.
Even if he lied also never mind lah, as long as the lies can lead to the defeat of BN, it is a legitimate lie.Delete

There is a tinge of sarcasm when you wrote that it is difficult for High class people like the AG to understand.This tantamount to an invitation from your readers especially PH supporters to challenge your statement that by virtual of holding the position of AG equates to HiGh class but in actual fact it is a burden to the holder to ensure justice of the highest order prevail.Too often you make disparaging remarks when it involves PH and occasionally you make similar comments about BN to demonstrate you neutral position and that I think is a mere smokescreen.You cannot blame your readers to conclude that you are pro-UMNO blogger and your frequent trips to Japan is to collect your deservedly awards.ReplyDelete
Toni Pua is a bull shitter like the Rah-pussy!!!one best slogan is tonite we win GST is gone, another tonite we win minyak rm1.50ReplyDelete
PH should assign him as the cheat-in-chrage of toll abolish.

I voted for PH knowing that they will not be able to implement many of the items as contained in the manifesto, but I am very happy because the biggest liar is defeated.Delete
Luckily Tony not related to you because you are a moron.Delete

RM231billion, RM25billion, RM400billion, who cares??
The fact is that we, the rakyat, should NEVER have needed to be in this place.
We have pumped trillions of ringgit out of the ground and most of that money was stolen, pissed up the wall, misspent, wasted, etc etc.
Then there are the lopsided overinflated contracts and agreements signed with cronies for infrastructure development.
Nup, there was no need for us to be in this situation.
Totalky agreed Gladiator. If rakyat could have abolish BNumno earlier all this would not have happen.Delete
Pumped trillions.. Petronas isit? Hang dan keluarga toknek semua dok makan, bernafas dbumi ini hari2 pun kira patut melutut kesyukuran.. macam2 Petronas helped subsidise. Petronas FOUNDED by??????????

Annie, any comments on the pipeline contract signed with China company by BN whereby payment is based on timeline instead of work done? BN actually paid those Chinese buggers ahead of time even though they have yet to do any work. Why Najib so smart to enter into such lopsided contract?ReplyDelete
What is there to comment? Annie is not interested in corruption or if the country goes to the dogs. She is only interested in casting doubts on PH's ability to correct all the past BN mistakes and govern the country well.Delete

Oh wait, you dont pay any taxes!!!

From what I can tell, the world is indeed watching.
It is not often that a former prime minister of a country is being charged with corrupt behaviour.
International audiences just love reading about the excesses of Rosmah, the fabulous wealth seized, the handbags, the jewelery, etc etc.
The last time we had something on this scale was Imelda Marcos :)

In this case of wholesale looting of Malatsia's wealth, the Chinamen are merely providing the financial services becos they are the ones being bribed to do so :)
Those who are doing the bribing here are Malays.
"Those who are doing the bribing here are Malays";
You must be someone that just landed from MARS. Ask the AhLong, operators of illegal gambling, prostitution, illegal contraband dealers, illegal factory operators and developers .Who is bribing who to flout the law.

Anon 23:15, don’t have to be kurang ajar with our national language. I may have voted PH in last election but I do not need to be called bodoh and have my mother tongue ridiculed by racist bigots like you and a few others here. Stop your racist comments and argue with your brains for once if you have any. With comments like yours, your parents could be far worse as parents in general don’t normally teach their kids bad things but sometimes their actions show how bad they really are and of course, you being the kids tend to copy your parents.ReplyDelete
It's all politic brothers, don't be to cought up with it, at least we have removed the kleptocrat, if pH cannot perform let's change the gov in next election, we have done it once we can do it again, enjoy the true democracy.ReplyDelete
"Well, honestly, I don't really give much of a shit over such comments".
I think those comments bothered you enough to highlight them Annie. Looks like you are now targeting and going after your readers and commentators as well.
