Lousy Public Transportation - PM

That's what our Malaysian Prime Minister wanted to say, lousy public transportation, but the mainstream media has to be polite with the words as it will be read by the world at large.

He boarded the commuter train and the light rail transit during the morning peak hour period. After trying it for almost one hour, he was at the conclusion that the system need some changes. Hello sir, my due respect, you have been the Deputy Prime Minister and Prime Minister for a number of years now and you have just discovered the plight faced by the general public in the capital city of Malaysia.

It's no doubt that even the light rail transit that has been operating for so long can't even put things right. True enough that the number of coaches are not sufficient. What's the point of building such a large platform that could accommodate more coaches that comes into each station. Might as well build a smaller platform in the beginning.

Moreover the general public can recognise you. Try wearing a baseball cap, dress in a t-shirt with jeans (your bodyguards are to dress the same) and try boarding it again at 6pm. You'll be shocked. Guess you won't be as it took you so many years to know about this.

Don't just try the commuter and light rail transit. Try the public buses and taxis as well. So, before your parliament or the city council decides to implement any new and stupid traffic system that limits private motor vehicles into the city, please remember this day.

LRT is just one of the multi billion projects left over by Mahathir loh.
Be it LRT, KLIA, Twin Tower, Proton, Perwaja, Highway, RM, etc.
If really want to inspect all got problem inside lah.

Mahathir didn't build it for the people.
They just wanted to build legacy for themselves and for people to remember them. LRT, KLIA, Twin Tower, Proton, Perwaja, Highway = LEGACY? Bullshit!

The same with Najib's previous education scheme and now National service.
Even our currency, the changed Malaysia dollar to Ringgit Malaysia, depreciated few times in the past 20-30 years. Think about it!

People have been suffering for ages, now only he's acting....Is it because of Anwar's by election?
