PUTRAJAYA: Barisan Nasional MPs have been asked to submit their passports for an overseas study trip ahead of Sept 16, the date that is being bandied about for supposed defections to take place.
Backbenchers Club chairman Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing said the trip was the brainchild of the club but rejected suggestions that it was organised because of the Sept 16 claim.
“The trip came about after a few of our members got talking. We wanted MPs to update themselves with the latest information about agriculture and high-tech food production so that we can debate better on the Budget when Parliament sits again in October.
“This is the best time for the trip although it is the fasting month because after that, Hari Raya celebrations begin and Parliament will meet again,” he told The Star here yesterday.
The above is an excerpt taken from a Star news report. Going on a trip during puasa months? Hmm real strange, strange indeed.
As claimed, it has got nothing whatsoever, sumpah I tell you, absolutely nothing to do with Sept 16. Really, I tell you, I could feel it in the vibes of the BBC Chairman when he said that it has got nothing whatsoever to do with Sept 16. Read my lips, NOTHING TO DO WITH SEPT 16.
I think the guy is willing to go to the nearest temple or church to take a Sumpah Keramat about this so you guys get off his back will you.
Sheesh! The nerve of you guys to even suggest that they are willing to take the whole backbench away just because of one man.
Hey it is a study trip la. They want to learn to be farmers la because after Sept 16 ooops! they want to start farming la. Anyway we need to grow our own food, we need to be self-sufficient so what better way than to get our own MPs to start the ball rolling?
They are so serious that they are collecting passports now. Hmmm, strange, real strange. Why collect passports now?
Maybe because this agriculture trip is so important that they don't want anyone to be left behind so those who have lost their passports could get them replaced and those whose passports with no empty pages left because all the pages have been stamped with HADYAAI or MEDAN or CHIANG RAI or LORONG GAHARU or LORONG HJ TAIB could get new pages. Waa, so serious one this agriculture trip and you people say the government is not serious about agriculture, shame on you.
Oh, to the Muslim backbenchers, remember this is puasa month so just because you are in foreign lands which means no Jabatan Agama people, doesn't mean its not puasa there.
And to those who are fighting their butts out bribing here bribing there to secure juicy position in the Bahagians and MKT make sure you leave enough money to your machais here to ensure that your dreams come true.
To those readers, stop thinking that this trip has got anything whatsoever to do with Sept 16. Why? Because they said so and surely our MPs wouldn't lie to us would they?
