GEORGE TOWN: Stemming from the persistent haze covering the country, the Penang government is now contemplating strict enforcement to stamp out open burning.

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the state would take the necessary measures to halt any activities that would worsen the situation.

“Should the haze get any worse, we will look at strictly enforcing a ban on open burning throughout the state,” he said, adding that the state was constantly monitoring the situation.

Since the beginning of the month, haze in Penang was recorded in the ‘moderate’ level under the Air Pollution Index (API) readings, which is made available daily.

It was reported that the haze now had emanated from rampant hotspots in neighbouring Sumatra.

What is the federal govt doing to extinguish this annual haze coming from other countries. Blaming the jews again (your favorite punching bag)?

...it is being made to look like this is about the Chinese being unfair to the Malays and that the Malays are merely bringing attention to this ‘injustice’. It is, after all, the business of PERKASA and the Malay Chamber of Commerce to look after Malay interests.

“The ‘si mata sepet’ that has never gone to a mosque or surau only has one vote. The ‘si botol’ that only knows how to go up to Batu Caves up and down only has one vote,” said Hamim Husin (Deputy director of the National Civics Bureau). Wake up 'si mata sepet' & 'si botol', voting Barisan Najis is like agreeing that you are a 'si mata sepet' or 'si botol'. Lets use the ONE vote to kick the racists out....are you awake?
