(Come lah PR, you already lost the State, you want to lose the support of the people too ah? Stop supporting the criminals lah otherwise you will never gain the trust of the people. Image source: TheStar)
I almost choked on my afternoon tea when I read this:-
Perak Pakatan Rakyat is prepared to challenge the Road Transport Department (RTD) in court if vehicle owners are prevented from renewing their road tax after being blacklisted by the police for not settling speeding tickets from 2000 to 2009.
I wonder who came up with this brilliant idea – must have been another idiot with a lot of outstanding summons.
There are certain things you can do to get votes for the next elections but there is always a limit. And one of it is that you don’t go all out to protect the criminals, in this case, stubborn road offenders, just to get some votes. That is wrong and certainly is not popular with the rest of us.
Instead wanting to bring the issue to the court and end up looking like a fool, the Perak Pakatan Rakyat should ask these buggers who been blacklisted, what offence they have committed and have they paid up the long outstanding summons. These buggers should not be let off free from the offence that they have committed. They should be made to pay what is due. Who asked them to sleep on the outstanding summons for so long? Who asked them to commit an traffic offence in the first place?
I just hope that Perak PR will find the wisdom to realise that what they are proposing now is nothing short of being foolhardy, stupid and simply ridiculous. Otherwise, it will be a blessing in disguise for Perak to be taken over by BN who is doing a better job in trying to book down these road offenders.
We don’t protect the criminals and certainly we will not waste time fighting out for them in the courts. Let them pay their due as prescribed by the law. Hopefully they will be less menace to others on the road.
