Motion against PM likely on Monday

A no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi may materialise on Monday after all.

According to a Star report, DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang said the Government motion on price increases scheduled for Monday can be turned into a no-confidence-motion, provided there were enough numbers to defeat it.

Lim, who is also Ipoh Timur MP, said it was not necessary to have a proper motion of no-confidence to create a “no-confidence” vote in Parliament on the Prime Minister and the Government.

He said he was informed that the motion, to be moved by Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad, was the first item on the list after the 90-minute question time.

The motion is to seek support for the measures taken by the Government over price increases.

Those slimy SAPP members should consider having their heads checked. Who do they think they are to do so? Where the PM berhempas-pulas trying to keep the whole country together thru the hard times, these opportunist slimebags find a way to screw things up even more.

Former PM is being selective!

Doss, a former student activist, said when Dr Mahathir first raised the issue of RapidKL in his blog on June 10, he did not reveal that his son-in-law was involved in MTrans, a company which provided buses to Rapid KL.

"I am glad that he has now admitted to his role in the awarding of a monopoly over the Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya monorail projects to MTrans when his son-in-law was involved with the said company.

"If the shoe was on the other foot, the accusations and allegations would be endless," Doss wrote.
"It is ironic that he uses the words 'my son-in-law so happens to be in the company'. Imagine Dr Mahathir keeping quiet and accepting an explanation like this from Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi."

Doss accused Dr Mahathir of "again being selective in his latest posting in what he reveals and highlights".
