So, all those talks about doing things properly based on facts and scientific evidence are just plain bullshit.
It's going to be decided by PH politicians and not experts after all.
Parliament approves formation of bipartisan caucus to study Lynas report
KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 26): Parliament has approved the formation of a caucus to study the report that will be presented by the Lynas review committee tomorrow.
In a press conference at Parliament lobby today, Wong Tack (PH-Bentong) and Nor Azrina Surip (PH-Merbok) announced the formation of the caucus and their appointment as chairman and deputy chairman respectively of the nine-member caucus.
“Lynas review committee will present this report tomorrow (to the Government) and the caucus will be studying the report and thereafter engage the Cabinet and make recommendations to protect the people and environment,” Wong said.
“35 MPs from all parties, including Umno and Pas, have agreed to support the formation of the caucus to monitor Lynas,” he added.
The other members of the caucus include Khoo Poay Tiong (PH-Kota Melaka), Wong Shu Qi (PH-Kluang), Awang Hashim (Pas- Pendang), Datuk Hasbullah Osman (BN-Gerik), Hasanuddin Mohd Yunus (PH-Hulu Langat), Maria Chin Abdullah (PH-Petaling Jaya) and Chan Ming Kai (PH-Alor Setar).
Nine members, seven from PH, one from BN and one from Pas named in the report by The Edge. I guess the ratio is about that. The BN and Pas MPs are obviously for window dressing.
And that self proclaimed anti-Lynas environmentalist with huge palm oil plantation (though declared to be the poorest MP with RM20k a month income) Wong Tack is to be the chairman.
Yup, the one who even accused government agencies (without any evidence whatsoever) of being bribed by Lynas to come up with positive reviews about the company's operations.
I think I already know what the outcome of all this nonsense going to be. The facts and scientific evidence wouldn't really matter.
Minister of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Yeo Bee Yin said the Cabinet on Oct 10 had decided that members of the committee would be comprised of those who had not openly stated their stand, either to support or protest against Lynas’s operations.
“This is to prevent any parties from questioning the credibility of the committee, due to the stand of some of its members (over the issue),” she said in a statement today.
It turns out that's just to calm things down when people made noise over the impartiality of the committee which was originally to be headed by Fuziah Salleh and Wong Tack.
Now they have this supposedly bi-partisan caucus bullshit to decide on the committee's findings.
And they announced it just a day before the committee was supposed to come out with its report which is today so that no one can protest against it.
That's very sneaky.
And the environment minister is the sneakiest one of all. She let the announcement be made by Wong Tack and not by herself so that she can remain innocent and sweet.
Why they are pushing this Lynas thing so much?
Politics of course....and maybe money....lots of money.
It's nothing to do with the environment or the people.
Otherwise, they would want this Lynas thing be decided based on facts and scientific evidence.
Well, that's the kind of people in power now.
To all those people working for Lynas, just be patient and pray
