Sports betting license scrapped?

  • The sports betting license was not awarded to Ascot Sports. The reason given is that many are against it.

  • It was followed by a comment by a Datuk that he was pleased that the sports betting license was not given or else match fixing in local football might occur.

  • Both reasons are equally unacceptable to me. Let me first answer the comment from the Datuk.

  • I wonder if he had any experience of seeing how things operate in developed countries.

  • Countries like Australia and UK have sports betting. In fact, their sports betting games cover not just soccer but various other sports including tennis, horse racing and even greyhound races.

  • Specifically, if we look at just soccer alone, the Australians and British hardly face any match fixing scandals. If any, they are dealt with swiftly by the cops.

  • And the best part is - both Australia and England are participants in the World Cup. Their games and spirit to play were not damaged at all.

  • So, dear Datuk, and the rest who used the excuse that it could destroy our game, please don't ever use it again. Tak masuk akal.

  • The Opposition is dancing away knowing that what they opposed have been agreed by the Government. But those guys practice Politics First, Putrajaya Now concept.

  • We, on the other hand, being the loyalists of 1Malaysia Government who uphold the concept of People First, Performance Now, surely can do better than those clowns in the Opposition.
  • Double standards should not be applied on sports betting and numbers forecast betting.

  • By not awarding the sports betting license with all sorts of reasons given which cover religion, politics, popularity and impact on society, there is little reason left to defend the numbers forecast betting games and horse racing betting games. Right or not ?

  • What is the justification to ban or not allow sports betting but to allow numbers betting now? Will we see a ban of numbers betting soon too ?

  • Some Datuk or Tan Sri from the relevant Government Ministry or agency must now come up with a clear explanation. Don't just close the books and say we should move on.

  • I am of the opinion that the sports betting license should be awarded. I am not a gambler. But there are reasons to this.
  • Sir, even without the sports betting license and even with the eradication of illegal syndicates, the people can still access the Internet to place sports bets with registered bookies from other countries.

  • What's next ? Bring in MCMC ? I wonder.

  • It is always important to have an identifiable target group. This "legal" population of sports gamblers can then be subject to targets from the various Ministries that deal with social ills.

  • We can then adopt all measures possible to solve issues such as addiction to gambling under effective campaign measures.

  • You can get more details from my article - The Sports Betting License.

"Specifically, if we look at just soccer alone, the Australians and British hardly face any match fixing scandals. If any, they are dealt with swiftly by the cops."

And herein lies the problem. Our local cops and MACC can barely deal with the rising crime rate in our country. Snatch thefts, murder, drugs, human smuggling syndicates, armed robbery, corruption. And you expect local law enforcement authorities to deal with it SWIFTLY?

Do you live in Malaysia? Have you ever seen the response time of our cops to emergencies???

Therein again lies another problem. When the sports betting license was announced, there was absolutely no mention of measures to prevent the unhealthy impact of gambling to society.

It reveals quite plainly that the UMNO-BN government completely did NOT CARE at all about the impact to society and was only interested in the revenue. Nothing more.

And another problem, why was the license awarded to only ONE company? Even the tiny red dot down south when it legalized gambling ensured that there would be TWO companies awarded casino licenses. Why must everything in Malaysia be a monopoly? (Purely rhetorical question. We all know why many things are monopolies in Malaysia)

It is undeniable that malays are stupid, incapable and lazy. Why don't they just humbly admit the facts and repent and learn from other races especially Chinese?

What is the point to argue here and wasting time again?

From the first onwards we were merely telling the truths. It wasn't us who think that way but their own Badawi as well.

All malays should go and read the newspaper, even Badawi is ashamed of maintaining the NEP after 34 years of implementing it and these malay baboons are still asking for it.

Even Badawi wanted them to compete on a level playing field.

So what does all these tell the world? It sends a very clear message that it is malays themselves who are incapable and lazy and they don't even want to admit it and make a change!

That is the biggest shame of all.

Can't you see, it is all back to square one. Year in, year out, some talk for half an hour, some one, some two. Some sing, many belt out their most recent released 'pantun'.

After all. Malays are good at that. Suggestions after suggestions, some good, some impossible to realize.

But, do you see any of these materialised? Hardly. Why, why and why???

Because the malays can never change. Never! Why?

The leaders forgot it or were they simply didn't want to address and admit that the actual disease is the malays and the remedy itself is also, the malays. They can never change. What is it about the malays?

Firstly as you all know, they are a lazy species. Since the beginning of time they have been like that. Even the encyclopedia called them as lazy people. I think those British with their accent tried to call them 'malas', and if you put 'y' in, it becomes 'malays'.

Embracing Islam make them a worse lot. Now they have a license to kill anything that gets into their way.

Malays are ungrateful lot. In reality, they just can't live or open their minds for others. When Mahathir said that they are complacent, they put him in jail. When Mahathir encouraged them to learn English language, they got angry with him, saying it is a 'bahasa penjajah'.

When other races 'maju', they got angry with them too. That was why at the end of Mahathir his regime, he said this, "I have achieved greatness as a prime minister, but I only fail in one thing, changing the malays."

Well, nothing to be surprised about anyway since Mahathir is not really a malay, and I guess that was why the malays were angry with him.

Drug abuse, hate, incest, liberal extremism (culture of miniskirts and gay marriages), murder, parochialism, racism, rape, religious fanaticism, snatch theft, spoilt bratty behavior, tribalism, wife abuse, child abuse, all that is associated with the malay race.

To them, malay is the biggest impediment towards building a truly Malaysian nation, and should be chucked into the dustbins of history.

A genetically flawed race cannot be fixed by politically. Nature will take its course and globalization will put them out to pasture.

What have we got now?

Brain drain, economic disparity getting wider, poor education system, racial segregation, widespread corruption, inefficiency and uncompetitive on the government departments and others.

Sad. Sad. Sad. The question asked by many of my fellow Chinese is this - Why can't you just tell the malay peoples to adopt Chinese culture which is superior?

From research, this peninsular was part of the Siamese empire way before these malays from Indonesia invaded it.

Still so thick skin, don't want to go back to Indonesia!
