Will You Join In With Lulu To Applaud These Fine Men And Women of Selangor?

Did you know that every year, the Selangor BN Assemblymen are [in the words of their boss, Khir Toyo] "“ encouraged to go on educational trips. It was organised by the state BN but they have to bear the cost on their own.”

The NST reported him as saying that, but, Lulu knows... nowadays, you can't believe everything that is reported by the KDN approved media either. For context to Lulu's disbelief, read this and this.

Two of them said they would be paying for the trip and denied that state funds were being used. Asked how much they paid, they claimed that the bill had not yet been sent to them. Both agreed that the state BN was organising it. One called it a retreat for assemblymen while the other called it a trip for exposure.
However, the third assemblyman said the trip was paid mostly by the state BN. “We only paid about RM1,500 each while the rest was taken care of. I don't know what the actual cost is.”

State executive councillor Datuk Mokhtar Dahlan said “The cost is borne by the assemblymen themselves who have or are going on the trip to China and the state government is not using its funds in any way”.

And different assemblymen have also reported different reasoning behind the trip.
Khir Toyo said that the visit was part of a beautification and cleanliness study tour.
Datuk Fatah Iskandar pula thinks that it is aimed at attracting investors to Selangor.

Anyway, whatever it is, let's applaud these assemblymen for paying their own way, all RM1,500 of it, in their noble attempt to study the China system on beautification and cleanliness. After their return, they would be able to proudly boast of how advance our toilets are next to the China toilets, just like how their boss like to boast about how progressive we are next to Nigeria.

Come on, a hand of applause to these men and women of Selangor

Nowadays I can't believe ALMOST everything from them. To get less insulted , maybe. I'll just occasionally read the Sun. As for Berita and Utusan, I wouldn't trust even their weather reports if they carry any.

fly airasia-X and stay in Tune hotel. eat at tune restaurant. coach by tune buses.
oops, Tony Fernadez hasnt set up operations there as yet. Meantime, its business class flight by MAS, 5 star hotel.. and paid by taxpayers money. For the sacrifices made by the assemblymen for the past 4 years trying to serve the hard to please consituents, they deserve a holiday. no arguments for that, but have they served their dues? maybe more like plunder the state resources. NIAMAH
