Another pipe dream?

MM Online - PAS manifesto pledges cheaper homes, interest-free loans for first car (extracts):

CYBERJAYA, March 19 — In its election manifesto, PAS is offering interest-free loans to Malaysian first-time car buyers and promised to reduce affordable housing prices by up to RM180,000.

PAS said it will assist those buying their first cars with a maximum 1,300 cc engine by excluding excise duty and through Qardul Hasan or an interest-free loan.

Also in its 25-page manifesto for the 14th general elections (GE14) is the promise of free school bus services to reduce the burden of parents, as well as to restructure highway toll rates by revising toll concession agreements that exceed 15 years.

PAS said it will cut down affordable housing prices by between RM50,000 to RM180,000, but did not immediately elaborate how this would be done.

These promises are part of 20 main offers under the PAS-led pact Gagasan Sejahtera’s manifesto which carries the theme “Malaysia Sejahtera” or for Malaysia’s wellbeing.

Under the list of 20 offers are also a one-off RM2,000 cash aid to career women as capital to start working from home and a national programme for monthly essential food aid to the poor.

It also wanted to increase the number of specialist doctors and specialist hospitals to match the United Nations’ recommended ratio for populations, as well as revise the ratio of security personnel to communities to reduce crime rates.

As for other plans in the manifesto, PAS also intends to reintroduce subsidies for petrol and diesel in a form that is more “equal and flexible” while taking into account Malaysians’ needs and the government’s burden.

And there are MORE. But I wonder how such a PAS government will be able to afford its "generosity"?

Methinks it's either just a theoretical communist ideology or a pipe dream. Or Hadi Awang has a tree that bears the fruits of money.

pipe dream 


  1. These dreamer politicians talk about re-intro fuel (or any) subsidies without explaining how they going to prevent miss-abuse of it by the rich and foreigners.

    Why is it when it comes to manifesto and promises, politicians can vague about the delivery yet people believed in it?

  2. Hadu's intended role after GE14 will be as advisor to Najib..

    1. If they prevail with two thirds majority, we will be in for a wild ride. Buckle up ! When Thicklips merge with Pinklips...that's where angels fear to tread. May our Evil Mamak prevail....only a few more weeks to go.

  3. "Methinks it's either just a theoretical communist ideology"...

    I thought Ktemoc is a socialist ?

    1. I am but not a theoretical one, wakakaka

    2. Socialism is always theoretical.
      Its a very attractive ideology at a theoretical level.

      At a practical level.... some of the cruellest acts of inhumanity in the history of the world have been carried out in the name of socialism.

      Capitalism, on the other hand, starts out rather crudely recognising acquisitiveness and greed as fundamental to human nature. Instead, looking for ways to channel such unlovely human traits to build more prosperous societies.

      Most youngsters start off as idealistic socialists of some sort, but most grow up and eventually end up as financial jockeys and various stripes of operatives of the capitalist system.

    3. don't mistake good socialism as exists in the Scandinavian countries, Germany, France and Britain, Australia, Canada, NZ with communism as in Russia, Albania, former East Germany.

      China was once a communist country but is now very capitalistic as Chinese countries are bound to be because of their 5000 year old DNA

      N Korea is just a dictatorship of the worst kind.

      PAS' manifesto smacks of theoretical communism, one envisaged by Marx but impractical to implement due to human avaricious and selfish nature

    4. Communism works as long there's cult personality of their leader. Once the leader dies, it crumbles and the entire system falls down like a house of cards.

      But if they can transfer that cult personality to a religion, an idea that never dies, then it perpetuates the system forever.

  4. DAP Penang has a pipe dream.
    Bagan Datoh has a pipe dream.
    So why not PAS ?

    1. DAP Penang has already initiated a program for the tunnel

    2. The Penang pipe deals are looking dodgier by the day.

  5. " I have studied him (Prophet Mohammud)- the wonderful man and in my opinion far from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the Saviour of Humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it much needed peace and happiness." ~ George Bernard Shaw The Genuine Islam

    "I hope the time is not far off when I shall be able to unite all the wise and educated men of all the countries and establish a uniform regime based on the principles of Quran which alone are true and which alone can lead men to happiness." ~ Napoleon Bonaparte

    1. it's not Islam some people are fearful of, but its priests, the ulamak. That's what's meant by the singers (priests) not the song (religion) that frighten or will oppress people

    2. Wakakakaka……… time changes everything!

      If ever, George Bernard Shaw & Napoleon Bonaparte would lived till today, the zombieic islam COULD totally turned their thinking about islam into something ELSE le!
