If Gerakan had 10pct of PKR's courage, it wouldn't have lost Penang



YOURSAY | 'It is pathetic sticking to a party that is keeping silent on the MO1 imbroglio.'
Victor Johan: Penang Gerakan vice-chairperson Oh Tong Keong, you said, “PKR ought to remember that a party without dignity is seen as a soulless party. And is not very much different from salted fish."
Surely you remember when state Umno leaders violently wanted to replace your party president Koh Tsu Koon and take over the Penang chief minister position before the 2008 general election, citing how Umno had more elected assemblypersons than Gerakan in the Penang state assembly.
Wira: Gerakan is the one that has to be rescued from Umno. Remember the stomping of former Penang chief minister Koh's picture by the Bukit Bendera Umno division chief?
Bullied, but unfortunately it went back for more.
Anonymous #15914635: If Gerakan were to have 10 percent of PKR's courage, it wouldn't have lost the Penang government.
Mosquitobrain: Gerakan's Oh is seeking cheap publicity. He did not realise by pointing a finger at others, three are pointing back at him. He has no shame about his own disarrayed party, which has poor standing at both the state and national levels.
It is pathetic sticking to a party that has zero integrity and credibility and is keeping silent over the ongoing 1MDB and MO1 (Malaysian Official 1) imbroglio.
Anonymous 2467801493104318: Gerakan, the 14th general election (GE14) is looming and if you want to win some seats in Penang, be the first party in BN to question Umno and Prime Minister Najib Razak on 1MDB and SRC International Ltd scandals.
Hit hard at them and show that you mean business. I and my 20 relatives will vote for your party. If not, just shut up.
GE14 Voter: There is no doubt that at times Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng had acted arrogantly in dealing with criticisms, be it from his coalition partners or journalists or even his own party colleagues. Such an attitude will one day lead him to much regret.
However, for Gerakan - the political slave of Umno - to claim desire to save PKR from DAP must be a great joke. But voters will not find it humorous. If anything, it makes it more difficult for Penang voters to take the party seriously.
If Gerakan's former Penang chief minister Lim Chong Eu were still alive, he might, like former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad, support Pakatan Harapan instead.
Wing Chun: Oh said, "A party without dignity is seen as a soulless party." I love that phrase, Oh. Look at your own party; it seems to fit that description.
Goldee: Asking people to pray for safe landing is to calm the passengers. I had this experience from Tawau to Kuala Lumpur where some ladies screamed when the aircraft wobbled as it went through thick clouds.
How would we react when the aircraft is shaking, accompanied with a loud noise? Don't you think we would panic in such a situation?
I praise AirAsia X's captain Ibrahim Jalaluddin for doing a great job, in calming his passengers and taking control of the flight to land the plane safely. It is not as easy task when caught in a moment of crisis.
Wira: The pilot was definitely praying that the other engine wouldn't fail as otherwise, the plane would have dropped from the sky like a stone. Well almost, if you could get my drift.
I believe an A330 can fly and land on one engine. The passengers were never really in danger, except in fearing the unknown.
I am more interested in what airlines, including AirAsia, are going to do with their Rolls Royce Trent 772 engined A330s?
Tony Soprano: In 2009, US Airways captain Chesley B Sullenberger's plane had both engines out following multiple bird strikes. He had no choice but to ditch the plane in the Hudson river in New York.
You may remember that no one was seriously injured. I'm not sure Sully told the passengers anything, but I am sure it wasn't "pray."
Ravinder: Those investigating the AirAsia incident should also find out first hand from the passengers how they felt when the pilot made the "prayer" announcement. The airline has the contact details of the passengers.
Send out a few appropriate questions to all of them to answer, for example, what was their immediate thought/reaction when they heard the 'call to prayer':
a) did they feel the pilot was in control of the situation?
b) did they feel the situation was worse than what they had thought after hearing the explosion?
c) did the 'call to prayer' make them feel that the pilot did not have the confidence to keep the aircraft flying much longer?
And so on. Such a survey would help to determine whether pilots (all over the world) should make such 'calls to prayer'. This is an opportunity to find out how the 350 or so passengers actually reacted to the call.
Annonymous: Asiancorrespondent.com reported: According to WA News, a passenger aboard the plane said the reaction from the cabin crew indicated the situation was "really bad”. “He [the flight captain] said ‘I hope you all say a prayer; I will be saying a prayer too and let’s hope we all get back home safely,’” said Sophie Nicolas to reporters.
Another passenger, identified only as Emily, described the experience as “traumatic”, adding that after the pilot’s remarks, “everyone kind of panicked a little because it sounded like we were not going to get safely home.”
OMG!: If what commenter 'Anonymous' said is true, and if the captured video by 7NewsPerth is correct, that the pilot had (1) admitted he "was scared ", and (2), said "let's hope we all get back safely”, and (3), asked for the passengers' "cooperation" to pray, then that pilot should face an enquiry.
If these facts are all established as true, that pilot should be grounded immediately and his details published, in case he applies to another airline to fly their planes.

He is psychologically unfit to handle the stress of flying if things go wrong, when, instead of reassuring the passengers and crew as a professional would, his words created alarm and panic among them.- Mkini
