Lim Guan Eng met his (cyber)match

I have watched closely the expose done by blogger SatD of Pure Shiite against Lim Guan Eng for the past few months. Recently, the latter was so riled up with the hard facts presented by the blogger, he had consequenty lashed out rather stupidly towards the wrong person.

This was reported in FreeMalaysiaKini few days ago after SatD debunked an article by The Economist about Penang State Government and its Chief Minister. The Economist had complimented Lim Guan Eng ubiquitously throughout the length of the article. It can be read here.

Correcting the many jarring mistakes made by The Economist which without a doubt, trying desperately to prop up Lim Guan Eng’s falling image in his own state, SatD had dissected the paragraphs with hard facts.

For instance, The Economist stated that:

The combination of low cost and high technology is the main reason why industries across the state of Penang, made up of the original island and a larger bit of the mainland, are prospering again after more than a decade of decline.

But SatD presented economic figures which stated that Penang had not been in decline before Lim Guan Eng and DAP took over Penang. The decline happened AFTER they took over! You can read his facts here.

Basically, Penang constantly beat the national GDP growth since the 1990’s and 2000’s and it is truly a misreporting on the part of The Economist to say the state was in a state of decline for the past decade.

Was it an intern journalist writing that article? What had happened to the once respected Economist editorial?

In his self-centred gusto, Lim Guan Eng also claimed in The Economist that:

The savings he has made by ending the “old systems of patronage” allow him to spend money on new social programmes instead, such as modest handouts for the elderly.

The savings he made was not by ending old systems of patronage as he would like us to think. In fact, he had deceived us way back in January 2011 when, using clever usage of words, he concocted a new phrase, “dividends of  anti-corruption measures” to fortify his flaccid performance as Chief Minister.

But SatD revealed that the savings made were not derived from efficiency nor from any anti-corruption measures. It derived from sale of lands in Penang as a matter of fact. This was exposed here, accompanied with data and figures. Worse, the operating expenses of the state were higher than the year before he took over.

Again, did The Economist do their homework? They should not have relied too much on this so called accountant who happens to be the Chief Minister. He had obviously reneged on the code of ethics of an accountant by being untruthful in giving out information.

I lied three times already and you dumb people in The Economist still believe me ah? Why so dumb one?!

Handouts seem to be Lim Guan Eng’s favourite mode to enchant the masses in Penang. His latest enchantment is his pronouncement that all newborn babies in Penang will receive RM100 as long as the parents are Penang voters with total monthly income below RM4,000.

He had set aside RM5 million to RM10 million per year for this.

But simple arithmetic revealed that the state projects 50,000 to 100,000 babies per year which comes to 136 to 272 babies per day whereas the figure doesn’t match the average population growth of Penang.

SatD calculated that the recent population growth in Penang entails only approximately 17,000 babies per year. Therefore, the difference in the budget set aside would have to be a surplus to the requirement. Question was asked, why did he over-budgeted for this program?

You can read about this further here.

Another farce Lim Guan Eng left behind for us to see is the ‘random’ award of contracts in Penang. He claimed that he practices meritocracy when handing out contracts for his subjects in Penang. But after an MCA representative made noise over the racial composition of the recipients, Lim Guan Eng covered up by saying that the contracts were awarded randomly. So which is which? Was it random? Or was it meticulously selected through meritocracy? We can read SatD’s article regarding this issue here.

Not only was he being untruthful on economic matters, he was also deceitful in the short time of his rule over Penang. In this article here by SatD, Lim Guan Eng tried to wash his hands from the mosque election fiasco last June. He claimed that the decision to hold elections for mosque committees in Penang was solely the decision of the Penang Islamic Council, and not the state or the DAP.

This came after the King himself ordered the council to defer the elections. But just a few days prior to that Lim Guan Eng’s state exco by the name of Malik Kassim had arrogantly avowed that they will take the matters to court should the mosques in Penang were not allowed to hold elections. The elections therefore, clearly was not just the decision of Penang Islamic Council.

The clincher was definitely this news article in BERNAMA:

Kerajaan DAP perkenal kertas undi ala pilihan raya

GEORGETOWN 6 Jun – Kerajaan negeri pimpinan DAP memutuskan kaedah pemilihan Anggota Jawatankuasa (AJK) Kariah Masjid di seluruh negeri menggunakan sistem pengundian dalam kertas undi ala pilihan raya.

Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Agama, Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna negeri, Abdul Malik Kassim berkata, kaedah pemilihan yang diperkenalkan itu adalah persetujuan bersama dengan pelbagai pihak termasuk Jabatan Hal Ehwal Agama Islam (JHEAI), Majlis Agama Islam Pulau Pinang (MAIPP) dan pertubuhan bukan kerajaan (NGO).

We can safely assume that Lim Guan Eng not only is untruthful and deceitful, he also has no accountability to whatever actions he made.

No wonder with all the fraud that was brought to light by SatD, Lim Guan Eng felt the heat. And the recipient of this backlash was MP Kota Belud Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan who had retweeted SatD’s original tweet chastising Lim Guan Eng.

You can read the foolish Lim Guan Eng getting desperate when his lies were exposed here. In fact, SatD had several times challenged Lim Guan Eng but the latter seems to be thick skinned in light of his tomfoolery.

Lim Guan Eng is one of the many ‘sinless’ Pakatan Rakyat’s politicians who can falsify the truth, cover up his own weaknesses but at the same time, proclaim to the whole world that he is the best thing that has ever happened to the people in Penang.

Thank you.

Penang has been in the lead since the days of Dr Lim Chong Eu right up until that BASTARD LIM GUAN ENG got hold of the state because of the Penang Chinese foolishness. Facts Penang growth was at -10.8 since that bastard took over Penang. He thinks all the Penang folks are blady fools, ox-moron like him. You gave all the handouts to fish for votes. The Penang Chinese are already rich they dont need your stupid RM 100 handouts. This bastard is fishing for Malay and Indian votes because most of the recipient will be the poor Malays and Indians. So dont be fool with this Bastard with pea size brain from Malaca.

    I admire satD for his exhaustive research, like all research, they are based on some other things, which may or may not be true. As such, the only way to gauge LGE is to ask thee people of Penang themselves.. Mind you, not the various NGOs (whether pro or anti-LGE), but the people themselves..

    on a related issue, why is it that pro-BN bloggers (NOT commentors) tend to use profanities in their writing (e.g. Unspinners, HousePK, satD) .. not saying that pro-PR are all fine and dandy, but there’s less vulgarity there.. and seeing that in this Holy month their vulgarity do not decrease, one has to wonder..

Not even a note of thanks but instead claimed kudos. Yes, that’s the stuff ultra kiasus are made of.

        You are DAP ultra kiasu, sure you’d claim “Local sentiment is favorable to the present state gov” but that’ll mean DAP, DAP, DAP and their ardent supporters only. A very large number of the non-DAP people in Penang and elsewhere have been disenchanted with Lim Guan Eng cakap tak serupa bikin, wanting Malaysians there to look to Sun Yat Sen and mainland China by officiating the opening of a building named after Sun Yat Sen who had nothing to do with or contributed to this country – he merely tompang in Penang to escape the political turmoil in China of the time.

        Yet he claimed to be Malaysian First, Chinese Second. Clearly, cakap tak serupa bikin. And now he claimed all sorts which the gullible Economist reporter swallowed line, hook and sinker, and the bosses printed his writing without any critical analysis. Where got meaning one? The Lim dynasty is not going to get a substantial number of votes overall, man, like they never did all the 40 plus years DAP have been in existence. They cannot get because of their chauvinistic, racist and subversive so-called Malaysian Malaysia stand and their words and actions that have caused the race riots of 1969.
