Woe To Every Slanderer And Backbiter

By kilamxx

Woe to every slanderer and backbiter,
Who amasses wealth and keeps on counting it,
He thinks that his wealth will insure his status forever.
By no means! He shall be thrown into the Consuming One.

Quran 104 : 1 - 4

It appears that the Jasin Member of Parliament Datuk Mohd Said Yusof is being given a real hard time not only in trying to make money but also in spending his fortune on the things he wants.

Last month he complained in Parliament that the Customs department wouldn’t “close one eye” on a consignment of sawn timber that was over the legal specification that he, as the agent, was bringing into the country. Imagine how much money he lost on that.

Last week he again made a complaint in Parliament. Still against the Customs department, but this time about the choice of seized cars that were offered to him to buy at a special price.

As reported in the New Straits Times last week, Mohd Said alleged that senior Customs officers were involved in questionable practices involving the sale of seized luxury cars.

He was offered a Mercedes Benz Masterpiece but apparently he had his eyes on another model.

“I went to see the latest Mercedes model, the CLK, and not the Masterpiece. He wanted to give me the Masterpiece but my wife already drives one so why should I get another?” Mohd Said lamented.

The poor Datuk. The guy just wanted to shop for the car of his choice. Now he’s being given such a lousy deal. Probably a worse deal than the one dealt out to the electors in Jasin.

The who? You know, the pakciks and makciks who voted for the Datuk in the last election to represent them in Parliament, remember? To speak up on issues affecting their livelihood, their employment problems, their social problems?

Yes, yes, the Datuk will get onto them just as soon as he has finished with his own problems. That he can guarantee.

Congratulations to the voters in the Jasin constituent! You all are surely well looked after! After all, you asked for it.

Maybe they're happy with the kain batik and kain pelekat they got before the election, Styxian ;-)
