SMS can be sent out every morning during Parliament sitting and those who cannot make it to the proceeding can reply to the message and inform the House that they will be absent.Koh Tsu Koon must have been feeling quite proud of himself for coming up with such a "brilliant" suggestion.
Such system will ensure that the number of Barisan MPs is always more than the number of Opposition MPs in the House by segments of time.
- Koh Tsu Koon
When Parliament is in session, its in session. Maybe on the first day of the session, some not very focused MPs may forget. Then it would make sense to send it. But to send it every day? Aiyoh..... this is like your HR sending you daily messages to come to work.
Now UMNO wants to take over the Chairmanship of Barisan Nasional in Penang. And you know-lah, this UMNO, once they sentuh saja, [sentuh aje, belum lagi pegang] they will immediately grab and never let go. Not even if Gerakan or MCA wins more seats than UMNO in Penang [which theoretically, is quite difficult, not just because most Penangites are too disgusted with Gerakan and MCA, but also because of how the seats are drawn up], will they return the position to the biggest winner.
Lulu wonders if Penang Gerakan members will stand by Koh Tsu Koon on this fight. Koh Tsu Koon is not very popular with Penang Gerakan especially after having pitted Teng Hock Nam, Teng Chang Yeow and Lee Kah Choon for the Chief Minister post, then having lead Penang BN to such a massive and embarrassing loss. Huan, who is super bitter with KTK let the cat out of the bag when he said that KTK has not returned to Batu Kawan, Huan's old seat which he was forced to vacate paving the way to what was supposed to have been KTK's ticket to a respectable entry to Parliament.
There are many, many reasons for Penang Gerakan to want to see KTK fail and be embarassed.
Lulu wonders if Gerakan Penang will be able to differentiate the trees from the forest and that they are supporting Gerakan's position as Penang BN Chief, not Koh Tsu Koon's position as Penang BN Chief.
A friend commented on his facebook,
"can the MPs tell Koh Tsu Koon not to simply speak in Dewan Rakyat. He has no rights to speak unless its related to his ministry. Read the Standing Order."
if you're in contact with KTK, could you please pass this message to him. Whenever this back-door minister does that, he's not only embarassing himself but also his party.
