"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.

Instead, Tan Tee Beng could only point to the fact that Penang MPs do not get financial allocations from the state government to "service" their constituents.

My colleague couldn't have put it any better by calling these two "jokers"
Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng called his fellow PKR MPs “jokers” for their demands, and made references to veteran DAP lawmakers like Kepong’s Dr Tan Seng Giaw who served as MP for seven terms despite no financial assistance.

“These people are just a bunch of jokers. I think they should just shut up. Look at Dr Tan and other veteran DAP MPs in KL,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

“They have no assistance at all from the Barisan Nasional (BN)-led Federal government at all but they have managed to serve their constituencies very well,” he said.
The role of an MP is not to give money away and execute small projects like repairing drains or upgrading fields. That's the job of the local council. The job of the MP is to be the voice of the people, fighting for their interests and rights, especially in parliament. Which begs the question, I haven't heard Tan Tee Beng speak a word in Parliament for the past year (or more)!!!

For the above, these renegades want Guan Eng sacked. Thankfully, our partners in Pakatan Rakyat are made of people with better integrity and intelligence, such as Dr Syed Hussein Ali and Dr Mansor Othman, who are more than happy to kick out the bad apples from the party.

I can't want for them to leave or be kicked out of Pakatan Rakyat. They are nobodies who were failing their KPIs, and nobody will miss them, not a bit. Plus, they are more than likely to make more money from BN anyway.
