Governance 101: Now Anybody Can Fly Free On Taxpayers Money?

fly

(Whether it is a private jet or a public abuse of trust and power – such nonsense cannot be tolerated at any level even for a high ranking politician’s wife. Just because it is approved by the Cabinet, don’t these people who fly have some internal conscience or they are just corrupt to the core?

(The very little money that we earn should be spent only on the essential items but their prices must be reasonable. The same goes for the Government who has access to limited taxpayers money.

Malaysia 101: When Taxpayers’ Money Hits The Palace’s Fan

Istana Negara Palace Malaysia

(The old palace is already looking majestic and we have already spent millions on it but we went ahead to construct a new palace. We end up looking like dungus but what the heck, we been in that situation before.

Christmas was early in MAS; at least it was in the MAS Chairman’s office with a gift of RM1.5 million worth paintings to adorn his office walls

At times when MAS is increasing it’s airfare due to escalating expenses and keep posting huge losses, the last thing that we would expected from them is a RM1.5 million expenditure for some paintings.
