Coming Up : Hyenas gathers ... fangs showing ....

Stay tune for a next posting on the latest UMNO morons who want to re-write history ....

Public Transport Thugs 2 : State Administration 0 : Penangites : Total Lost

I was flipping thru theSun print copy when I had my breakfast this morning and I noticed the headline on page 6 "Teng has given up on errant cabbies".

Aiya !!! Datuk Dr Teng, how come so fast you surrender ha ? your party members were supportive of you and took the initiative to attend to Parti Gerakan's meeting at CityBayview Hotel by taxis on Sunday, although most knew that those are act of 'bodeks' ;)

You failed to fix the bus system, and now you also failed to fix the taxi system, and Penang continue to be blackmailed by these 'thugs' ?

So what is left to Penangites who supported you in the past elections ?

Meanwhile, I tried to search for the same article on theSun's website so that I don't have to type them out, however I see no trace of it, instead another article occupied the same space.

theSun online

The missing piece on theSun print copy

Is there an attempt from someone to blackout this piece of news ? Only theSun can tell ..

Anyway, here is the 'missing' article :-

Teng has given up on errant cabbies

Page 6, print copy of The Sun, Thursday, August 10, 2006

Penang - State local government, traffic management committee chairman Datuk Dr Teng Hock Nan is "washing his hands off" the issue of taxi drivers refusing to use the meter.

Teng, contacted by theSun yesterday for comment on the blatant refusal of Penang's cabbies to use the meter, would only refer to the matter to the Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board (CVLB) and the Road Transport Department (RTD).

"The state government has done all the necessary groundwork, and it is up to the CVLB and RTD to do the rest.

"There is nothing we can do except to let the respective authorities carry out enforcement against the errant taxi drivers.

"Since the CVLB chairman (Markiman Kobiran) has announced the deployment of undercover CVLB, RTD and police officers to nab them, it is now in their hands," Teng said.

Teng, who has been on the receiving end of swears and curses from both taxi drivers and the public alike, has obviously given up on taxi drivers whom he has been trying to convince for years to use the meter.

The 1,000-odd cabbies were supposed to use the meter from Aug 1 but despite turning up in large numbers on that day for the official "launching" ceremony by Teng, they have reneged on their promise
