The Penang State Government may have taken a herculean task in ensuring the status of Penang's Heritage Status is being secured. I am sure many of you did not ever dream that Penang will one day be a Heritage City as well as being governed by the Pakatan Rakyat government. Seriously, I am speaking as a Penangite and I am sure many of you would agree. A wise friend advised me never to look back at the rear mirror but to steer ahead. It's always important to know the history and to learn from it. Never be afraid to admit mistakes as the new government will make some blunders and as a Penangite, I am always forgiving. Forgiving when it comes to blunder but if the same mistakes are being made twice, I will not hesitate to bite someone's head off. For the case of the Heritage City status, I am certain you know the issues. Stop focusing on the crappy ways of the BN government but be prepared to take a step ahead and to consider these 2elements:
1.Stop the projects and face legal lawsuits. Besides that, you will have alot to convince the investors of your flip flop policy to reverse a bad decision. The Government of the day will be the government of the future. So stop blaming those bastards in the past .
2. Set up a negotiation team to talk to the affected developers. I believe there are reasonable people. After all, they wouldn't have considered Penang.
I am sure you wouldn't want those bastards to come back to power, would you? So speak up and be heard. Always look forward and say "to hell with the past. We have voted the new government for a change and don't even talk about them anymore. There are comfortably earning their pension and we must make sure they continue doing so. "
I think the blame game must stop. It is better for all to put aside all political differences and not let the award go to waste. I am certain it's a wake up call for the PR government in Penang to consider. According to Malaysiakini, it's a difficult game to play on this issue. Nevertheless, I am confident, Penang will prevail. Trust me - it will prevail under PR.
