Slide 1: I was interviewed by the BBC on the current financial turmoil and over management of the currency crisis in 1997 - 98. I was amused when he attributed the pegging and the elimination of CLOB (Central Limit Order Book) to Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim. I asked him whether he was given this information by Anwar. He did not answer. Of course I did not do everything by myself. I had a lot of help from others. But Anwar was not one of them. He, many will remember, was the Minister of Finance who implemented the IMF strategy without the IMF, with disastrous results. Slide 2: 1. When I started my blog I expected many criticisms to be levelled at me when I wrote articles against the Government. I am disappointed that those who made critical comments never argued their cases against me. All they could say is that I was worse when I was Prime Minister or that all the problems began during my time. No supporting evidence at all. And obviously not even true. Clearly the quality of these carping commentors leaves much to be desired. Slide 3: RUBBISH We are great producers of rubbish - not the verbal kind, although that also - but real solid waste. But we are not keen on their disposal. Rubbish dumps, legal and illegal are everywhere. Land fills which seem to be the preferred method are really hazardous to health. When rain falls and leaches the waste, the water would seep into the ground and pollute ground water. This water flows into the land around and may get into the water supply. At least New Water in Singapore is thoroughly filtered and rendered safe though not aesthetically acceptable. But our ground water is not filtered and can poison the soil and our streams and rivers. Slide 4: The Government had wanted to build a modern incinerator like the ones in Japan. These Japanese incinerators are located in the residential area. They produce hardly any smoke from their very tall chimneys. The incinerator is so clean that the locals use them as their recreation area. I have never heard of the Japanese complaining against incinerators being located in their residential areas. But we in Malaysia have higher standards of cleanliness. We do not want even the cleanest incinerators to be located anywhere near where we live. We prefer to dump the rubbish untreated on land. Soon we will be having rubbish mountains like in a neighboring country where scavengers can recover discarded items which can be washed and sold to the not so rich. Slide 5: 5. Incidentally I am told that in the United Kingdom every household has to have three rubbish bins; one each for plastics, glass and perishables. If the rubbish inspectors finds that there is nothing in the bins the householder will be fined for throwing his rubbish elsewhere. Will we accept sorting our rubbish and dumping them into the correct bin! I think not. That is for the Government to do, as we pay taxes precisely for sorting our rubbish. Slide 6: Salam Ayahanda Tun. We need to tackle these rubbish problems with modern incinerators like the ones in Japan. State of the art and even their nuclear reactors have been undergoing extensive test to use sea water as cooling elements. Many things we must look and learn and emulate from the Japanese. Right from how they walk, talk and give proper respect to everyone around them. Rubbish is big issue nowadays Tun, all these incinerators are micro solutions if compared to the 5th Prime Minister and his total rubbish Administration, incinerate them and their cronies fast and we can see smaller rubbish dissipates themselves quietly. P.s: Tun, is it the norm in Malaysia nowadays to submit in post dated resignation notice? I can see this new thingy picking up right from PM post to news paper editors. All of them are self composing rubbish that cannot be recycled anymore. Bio-hazards, toxic waste - may explode un-provoked. 390 Comments By kamal ahmad on November 1, 2008 9:30 AM Slide 7: By harry on November 1, 2008 9:33 AM assalamualaikum Tun,keep up the good work,Hairy segamat. By ondeonde on November 1, 2008 9:37 AM what is new Tun ? another journalist reporting 'facts' withouthaving the facts. By shake_nik on November 1, 2008 9:37 AM Salam Tun,I am not gonna argue with you. It will be like arguing with my grandfather. I will read your article as long as there is to read, but if I disagree, I will keep it to myself. Moreover, what is the point of winning the argument when the present government do not care what being discussed here, and if they do, are they going to implement our suggestions, I think not. Note - still have not the time to read your book...wish i got more time for everything I like to do. Slide 8: By Nasri on November 1, 2008 9:38 AM Salam Tun, Bole Tun beri coretan/nasihat kepada pemuda-pemudi Melayu, yang pada pandangan umum, bila belajar, mereka main-main, bila berkerja, mereka tidak mahu bersungguh2. Nasri By eljeha on November 1, 2008 9:39 AM a'kum Tun, Well said regardseljeha Slide 9: By dannalli on November 1, 2008 9:43 AM Beberapa tahun dulu ada saya cuba ketengahkan kepada rakan saya pengusaha dalam pembenaan rumah/condo/rumah pangsa besar-besaran untuk menggunakan mesin pengisar sampah yang diletakkan di bawah sinki yang boleh melumatkan kesemua bahan buangan, kecuali tulang lembu yang mungkin akan menumpulkan mesin tersebut. Harganya dibawah RM800, yang saya kira dapat diserapkan kedalam harga unit jualan. Tapi malangnya, ide tersebut tak diterimanya. Saya juga telah ketengahkan ke Majlis Tempatan supaya untuk mensyaratkan semua pemaju menggunakan kaedah tersebut. Malangnya senyap sepi. Agaknya kerana saya sepi dengan 'insentifnya'. Bayangkan kalau disemua kediaman, terutama di rumah pangsa, mengguna kaedah ini, tidak ada lagi sampah yang akan bertaburan. Slide 10: By jesselabu on November 1, 2008 9:43 AM Dear Tun, I have seen you many times in such interviews. You are the best. To compare with DSAI and DSAAB, both this guys normally talk rubbish. JL By naffyc on November 1, 2008 9:44 AM Salam.. Tun.. I hope the west can learn from Malaysia in managing financial turmoils. They are merely jealous!!!! But I am surprised how Anwar Ibrahim got the credit. He is a favourite overseas. The West is famous in strategising political moneovre to conquer us economically and politically. But i thank God that we have excellent intelligence. dont worry, I pray for your health and your enemies will die oneday. God is Great!! allahuakbar!. Slide 11: By Noor Faiza on November 1, 2008 9:44 AM Salam Tun, Pagi-pagi dah bising pasal sampah Tun.... Tun memang best. Macam bapak-bapak. Terima kasih dengan nasihat Tun. Tapi di kawasan rumah saya ni, walaupun saya mengasingkan sampah organik dan tak organik di dalam plastik berasingan tapi tetap juga dimasukkan ke dalam bakul sampah yang sama disediakan oleh management. By apamaukira on November 1, 2008 9:45 AM morning Tun ;* Slide 12: By MKM on November 1, 2008 9:46 AM Good Morning Tun, Hope you are doing fine with your family.I would to agree with you on this matter that you just posted.It seems sometimes this foreign news broadcaster are political motivated by somebody that is eager to know the bad side of the country and not the good things that thecountry have done in the past years. I hope that DSAI(Anwar) would never become a Prime Minister,because he is a menace to society and to the country.If we'd have follow his advise on taking the IMF package in 1998 to help our financial crisis,than by all means we have been in turmoil by now. What a useless traitor he is. Please keep on posting your comment Tun and may god bless you. Slide 13: By twocents02 on November 1, 2008 9:53 AM Dearest Dr M They just love to demand their "rights" as citizens just because they pay taxes. That has become the trendy battle cry. Money is the only denominator that they understand. It is OK to abuse foreign workers because "we are giving them the opportunity to earn money, otherwise they will remain poor in their home countries". We strongly "object to have their quarters in our residential vicinity as security and land value will diminish". Again money. If you publish "lies" about me, I will sue you for RM tens of thousands. Slide 14: Hop party - pay money. Want votes - pay money. As for some of the western media, they are first class spin doctors. Money has the power to turn facts into "flawed views" and lies into "absolute truths". Some in Malaysia, even employed poll/survey results as "supporting evidence" that such and such an opinion is prevalent and widespread. There is one survey result that favours Anwar as the "better PM material" than Najib. Of course those comments not supportive of their political stance will be rated -17 etc and those that "swears" the truth of their postings will be rated +35. Half the time, it is full of name calling and unsubstantiated criticism. They also resort to character assassination. They devalue their own credibility and I have stopped visiting such "depressing" and "intellectually demeaning" sites.
