    AirAsia cannot pay the airport tax and yet it can sponsor sport in America and now F1. What a bloody joke!

    The MAHB’s boss, Tan sri Bashir, should be sacked for allowing AirAsia to owe airport tax. i have not heard of MAHB allowing other airlines to owe airport tax except AirAisa.

    I am interested to read what is the stupid answer the Minister of transport is going to give on this subject matter.

    I like the questions. I always like YB’s questions. I want to see the stupid answers coming from the minister especially Tourism and Transport.

    I am sure that Venturepharmn will carry on with the buidling of the pavillion despite the scandals involving Ng Yen Yen.

    I am also sure that Air Asia is still owing airport tax. Tan Sri Bashir of MAHb should know that airport taxes have already been paid by passengers to Air Asia and why Airasia had to owe.

    According to the newspapers reports Airasia is loaded with cash. It is able to sponsor the American football and now F! team. But it can not pay the airport tax debt and the governmetn and MAHB dare not take action against it.

    WHAT A BIG JOKE?????

    YB Wee, salam sejahtera,

    Bolehkah YB tolong bangkitkan perkara tentang kelajuan broadband di Malaysia. Bayaran termahal tapi kelajuan terlambat.

    Bila saya buat ujian kelajuan internet di http://www.speedtest.net/index.php?nojs=1
    didapati kelajuan broadband kita lambat berbanding negara lain.

    Keputusan bandingan kelajuan World Speedtest.net Results boleh didapati di website:
    http://www.speedtest.net/global.php

    Kelajuan broadband di Malaysia adalah paling terendah/terlambat berbanding negara lain dunia. Korea Selatan mempunyai kelajuan 20x ganda Malaysia!!

    Sekian, terima kasih.

    Tony Fernadez must shitting brick because AirAsia and its airport tax debts will be the subject mater in Parliament. AirAsia is sponsoring American football team why can’t it pays up the airport tax debts after all the airport tax has been paid by the passengers the moment they buy their tickets online.

    Don’t tell me that Tony Fernandez is going to tell us that we can buy tickets online and owe airport tax like what airasia did.

    The Najib government must be responsible to take action to ensure that no airport tax is owed buy airasia. No where in the world that airline can owe airport tax accept in Malaysia.

    AirAsia and Venturepharm are the highlight. Two of the most the most scandalous subjects and both controlled by MCA ministers. One is Ong Tee Keat and the other is Ng Yen Yen.

    Both should be sacked for not taking good care of their portfolio. If I am Najib, I will sack Ng Yen Yen immediately for his close relationship with Ventrurepharm director, Grace Chen AU Yong.

    The best is to sack both Ong Tee Keat and Ng Yen Yen.

    YB

    Don’t ever let up on the Venturepharm Asia or AA airport tax issues.

    It’s obvious the PM Najib and the MoF are stonewalling on AA airport tax issue. When ordinary companies don’t remit EPF, Socso or Sales Tax there are hefty penalties and fines. Directors of these companies can be personally charged for non-compliance.

    So, if the Govt will not take action, respond or be accountable, I suggest you organize an on-line petition to insist the Govt take action against AA and bombard them daily in Parliament till the money is recovered!

    As for Venturepharm Asia, it has all the earmarks of fraud, corruption and a crony alibaba deal. Take Ng Yen Yen to the cleaners!!

    The most unfair thing Ng Yen Yen has done towards Malaysians is to use a design done by a foreigner instead of our own talent. She has the nerve to tell the Malaysian reporters after presenting the design to the Deputy Director-General Bureau of Shanghai World Expo Coordination that the Architecture Design Institute of South China University of Technology had designed the Malaysian pavilion. (This was reported in the Shanghai official web site). There were so many excellent designs done by our own Malaysians, who have entered the bidding, to choose from and yet she has preferred to choose one done by a non-Malaysian. I thought she represents Malaysia. She certainly needs to be sacked if she does not.

    Apabila penumpang menempah tiket kapal terbang ia perlu membayar harga tiket dan cukai lapangan terbang. Macam mana pula Air Aia mengutip duit cukai lapangan terbang dari orang ramai tapi tidak membayar kepada MAHB sebaliknya ia berhutang kepada MAHB. Macam mana pula MAHB boleh membenarkan Air Asia berhutang dengan MAHB.

    Saya rasa ada sesuatu yang tidak kena telah berlaku. Mungkin ada persefahaman atau perjanjian tidak resmi diantara Air Asia dengan MAHB. Mungkin ada pembesar kerajaan yang berkuasa terlibat untuk memberi kebenaran kepada Air Asia untuk berhutang dengan MAHB.

    Saya amat berharap agar Menteri bertanggong jawap dapat memberi jawapan yang bernas dan mengariskan usha supaya Air Asia dapat menyelesaikan hutangnya. Air Asia boleh menaja suikan di Amerka Syarikat namun telah mengabaikan tanggong jawap nya kepada kerajaan. PM Najib perlu tegas didalam soal ini dan mengambil tindakan yang wajar dengan menangani soal ini.

    TOny Fernades should stop to brag in the papers that AirAsia is doing so well. How can it do well when it cannot afford to pay airport taxes? Very simple question. Najib should stop talking about “rakyat dahulu”. If “rakyat dahalu” then why AirAsia is allowed to owe airport tax to the tune of RM65 million and when rakyat owe RM10,000 income tax or other taxes the rakyat is taken to court but AirAsia can owe with no actions. Sudahlah rakyat first and 1Malaysia.

    YB, please screw the Minister of Transport and Finance for allowing AirAsia to owe RM65 million airport tax. RM65 million is the figure that was negotiated sum. Initially it was owing RM110 million. I do not know how this BN government can give so much discount – almost of the sum owed.

    Good questions and i am waiting for the silly answers to be given.
