The Opposition's plagiarism

A-ah..!

The 'warlord' drops another bombshell on the Opposition. Over the past few months, former PM Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has been consistent and very sharp in steamrolling Pakatan Rakyat.

Bersih, PAS, DAP and other key local issues.

And this time, he says the Opposition slogan was just a plagiarism of US President Barack Obama's campaign propaganda.

Excerpts:

"Now the opposition in Malaysia have copied Obama and is promising change. Give them a chance they say. The BN has ruled this country for 55 years. It is time to change. They will change this into a welfare state. Everything will be free. No fees for education. No tolls. Large subsidy for petrol. 20% royalty to oil producing states etc.etc. The Socialist and Communist have tried this welfare state idea. They failed. Malaysia has no ideology. But the reality is that the Government needs money in order to develop the country and to subsidise living cost for the people. But when Government foregoes taxes, tolls and fees, it will have less money. But it will have to spend more on running an maintaining utilities, expressways, schools, operational and development cost, pension etc"
I believe its normal to copy a great and outstanding idea but when it comes to logic and sense, some of it will not apply... not in Malaysia!

What's wrong with change? Other countries get a chance to change their govt through elections why can't we ? Don't we deserve it? The thing about change is we will never know the outcome nobody knows But we just have to be brave and try BN has been around for 55 years It was good at one time bringing a lot of development But now only elite umno members benefit from it Let's try for a different govt

bro,

general election is all about making promises. delivering it is just another task.

voters will remain the deciding factor but the slogan plays an important role.

its a normal political agenda all over the world

salam tn,

kita tidaklah memandang rendah janji pembangkang walaupun kebanyakannya adalah kosong.

ini sudah dibuktikan pada pru 2008. rakyat mudah termakan dengan janji2 seperti ini.

apa yang penting, barisan nasional mestilah bekerja lebih kuat walaupun ia menunaikan segala janji.

lebih penting ialah bagaimana untuk meneruskan kesinambungan bn dalam kerajaan persekutuan selepas ini...

kalau nak buat negara kebajikan dan bagi semua free kepada rakyat, memang bagus tapi lepas tu negara kita akan terpaksa mengemis mintak duit daripada negara lain!

bangang punya pakatan!

The opposition wants power , at all costs! This is their best chance and they will promise everything they could to appeal to the masses and win the votes! Thats all they care! What happens after that.... will look into it later, although the promises are illogical!
