Pak Lah asks us to be buruh kasar

“I want our people to take over the jobs now held by the immigrants,” he said at the launching of the Rural Action Plan at Ayer Kuning. (The Star)
What an easy solution to solve the mess they created. All those billions wasted in major projects like what-what corridor here and there. All those white elephants that serve no purpose.
Obviously, Pak Lah has not been there with the migrant workers. How those able-bodied, strong, hardworking Nepalese, Myanmarese, Bangladeshi toiled in hot sun, stinking rubbish, bad living conditions etc. Have Pak Lah seen the meals they can afford to eat? Like two pieces of chicken necks, a mountain of white rice with some curry and plain water? This is the kind of life our PM wants for the citizens of the country he leads.
The PM who probably admits to us that “Yeah, you have all been screwed. Stop whining already. It is your problem, not mine.”
Abdullah said people should not be choosy about jobs and hoped that factories would stop taking migrant workers.
Maybe the PM never really pay attention. Why have all those Ministries like the Human Resources and etc when he cannot figure out why factories prefer migrant workers?
Talking about our dear PM, I find it such a hypocrite for him to keep on demanding for the release of the two detainees who are terrorist suspects kept in Guantanamo Bay (source) while he has a whole lot of people detained under ISA over here in Malaysia. Don’t you think so? And let’s not even go into the issue how Kugan was murdered while being investigated in our local balai lokap. Dear PM, before you go international, asking for release of terrorist suspects, how about taking a walk in your own backyard first?
