“Please Sack Me!!”

That’s what they are really saying. Each of these MPs, Zahrain Hashim, Zulkifli Nordin and Tan Tee Beng who are publicly saying that they are not planning to quit are indeed telling the truth.

Instead of quitting and be accused of “jumping ship”, they want to be sacked so that they can go out in a blaze of “glory” and accuse their party of betraying them instead, “forcing” them to join a BN-aligned political party.

Til today, despite calling Lim Guan Eng a “dictator”, “chauvinist”, and a “communist”, none of them have been able to furnish an iota of evidence as to what exactly and specifically Lim Guan Eng has done which justifies the fantastic labels.

The only element of dictatorship which I see, is that he was completely and utterly uncompromising in creating a clean and crony-free government. In fact one of the first “law” “dictated” by Guan Eng after becoming Penang’s Chief Minister was to ban the application of land by our MPs and ADUNs to prevent abuses and corruption. Obviously, the result was unending frustration by the 2 Penang-based MPs.

Zahrain who wanted an inexperienced RM2 company awarded a management contract for Penang Island’s only golf club was “over-ruled”, and a subsequent “real” open tender attracted 7 bids from established companies.

Tan Tee Beng sought to gain favour by attempting to secure properties from Penang Development Corporation at a discount for his relative and was unsuccessful in lobbying for the position of chairman of Perbadanan Bekalan Air Pulau Pinang.
