Lulu Also Can Say The Darnest Things

The Government should consider stopping express bus from operating night trips said Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir after 10 people were killed when an express bus hit a road divider 8km after the Ipoh Selatan toll plaza (northbound) at 1am
He said that if the move could safeguard the lives of the people, it should be considered.

If Zambry were to study the statistics, he would learn that
1. not all the express bus accidents happen at night
2. in ALL the bus crash incidents, the driver of the bus was a [surprise! surprise!] a MAN!

Maybe Zambry should push for for the government to consider not allowing men to drive express busses. The statistics seem to sokong it.

I'm surprised this illegal MB didn't suggest that all bus driver can't or are not allowed to sleep on the job. Such geniuses and PhD holders we have here in Perak Darul Kartun. Does his PhD means Philosophiae Doctor (Doctor of Philosophy)or does it really mean Person having Delusions?

Hamba.

3. In almost ALL the bus crash incidents, the driver of the bus actually survives despite being in the very front of the bus!

Meaning all buses operate only in the daytime clog up the traffic ?
All buses night stop after 2359 hrs and all the paxs nite stop in the buses ?
Goshhhh wonder if his kids take the buses ?

The bus driver admitted dozing off, causing the deaths. Why? Because he had had little time to sleep, for the more trips he makes, the more money he gets. So how to get some shut-eye? In the bus of course, even when he is supposed to be driving.

a blogger once labelled him as mr. potato head (a cartoon character).
in cantonese, potato sounds as "farn seeh". if someone calls u one, it can also mean stupid, idiot, dense, thick, dim-witted, brainless, etc. no need to say more...

Great! I've got a MBA who's proving himself to be stupider by the minute!
But then again, he's the reincarnation of Gandhi with the personality of Mandela.....
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Road accidents do happen but some are created by irresponsible drivers. When you have 30 or 40 lives in your hands, you just couldn't say, "Oh, I was sleepy...so I crashed the bus.." Until and until human life is sanctified and respected, there will be irresponsible people who can take it away on the slightest pretense.

With a illegal MB like Zambry, Perak will not only come to a standstill, it will retrograde far behind. He speaks through his nose and maybe he has a brain after all, which most of the time is resident in between his legs and he is sitting on it. (Apology for this crude comparison cos' this MB makes me sick and I am a Perakian.)

A lot of small time businessmen and salesmen find it convenient to travel at night because it saves them a night in a hotel and nothing much can be done at night. By stopping express buses to ply at night (because of a few accidents which arose out of drivers having little sleep and little pay) it would be akin to banning all knives and parangs when an amok ran wild and killed a few neighbors.

This is another symptomatic diagnosis by BN lawmakers when they saw symptoms and tried to treat it superficially while not finding the real cause of the problem behind it.

It will be a good idea to close all highways , then no more accidents. Or otherwise ban all buses then surely got no more bus accidents. Or ask God to not make nights

Fool also

The illegal chap is implying that all accidents happen in the night time.
He failed to notice that all bus drivers are men.
But the most important of all is that zambri fail to realize that he himself is illegal.
