"1Malaysia Boat Race Kills"
Let us imagine that it was actually Najib Tun Razak's project. Should we call it 1Malaysia Dragon Boat Race ? Assume that for a moment.
What will the headlines be ? What will Opposition politicians, bloggers and supporters say ? THE ABOVE TWO !
Seriously, I saw a similar version of the above two titles in two blogs - one belonging to a seasoned DAP politician which attacked the Kuala Dipang tragedy.
And some of you left messages or comments in my blog and Facebook saying that DON'T BLAME DAP for the acts of Mother Nature. Blame it on Mother Nature and THE SCHOOL, not DAP.
Please, don't be a hypocrite and talk nonsense. WHO MADE THE DECISION TO CHANGE THE VENUE TO BANDAR SRI PINANG JETTY ?
That location received objections back in December when there were people injured. Right after the death of 6 recently, DAP Exco immediately cancelled the venue.
DAP was the one who made the decision to have it at a dangerous zone in the first place - objected by sportsmen, fishermen and the Marine Dept, right or wrong ? Read more : Multiple blunders blamed for dragon boat tragedy
Was it Mother Nature, or a result of a STUPID AND DANGEROUS DECISION ? My previous related article : Penang DAP must be held responsible.
Guan Eng has agreed to an inquiry by the way. A full investigation must be carried out and I do not wish to see the country losing students like that.
In economics, losing students carry the meaning that we are potentially losing valuable human capital which could contribute to the country.
So please. Life jackets and precautions please ! Will Parliament and DUN Pulau Pinang discuss this matter and compel the use of life jackets for such activities ?
