For example his apology to His Royal Highness the Sultan of Johore, in regards to a comparison of safeness, praising Penang and belittling Johore, he is reported to have uttered,
“You don't have to worry about your safety when you come to Penang. In Johor, if you are a Singaporean, you are likely to get kidnapped.”shouldn't the Polis DiRaja Malaysia (PDRM) be credited, for Penang being the safer state?
The statement, which Guan Eng could not recall making in the public or private domain but non the less saw fit to apologise to HRH, to foreign correspondents was to give an impression and assume credit for the Penang State Govt when the matter is clearly the efforts of PDRM.
A more recent Twist, only because it was reported just two days ago in the Star, "Guan Eng should stop claiming he helped settle RM630mil loan, says Donald Lim".
"The deputy minister explained that the state debt was actually transferred to the Federal Government following a water restructuring agreement that was initiated even before Pakatan Rakyat came to power in Penang."The Guan Eng 600 million Ringgit twist,
In contrast, Pakatan Rakyat-managed states have successfully managed their finances and not overburdened the people with debts. In fact, Penang managed to reduce state debt from RM630 million at 8 March 2008 to only RM30 million as at end of October 2011. This represents a debt reduction of 95% or RM600 million, which is the highest debt reduction of any state in Malaysia’s history!Why the Federal Govt had been unforthcoming and dancing to the Guan Eng twist until now, when it was exposed in blogger satD's October 27, 2011 post, "Was the Yellow Ah Beng being proofy again", is another question altogether.
2012 is the anniversary of the much acclaimed 2000 Dragon year swordplay movie "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon".
This holiday commentary, "Raffles Class for holiday" could be the preview of a dance movie scheduled to be released in the year of the Dragon.
The Penang CM Lim Guan Eng being born in 8 December 1960 and though his dancing role is as yet unconfirmed, the title of this potential blockbuster is tentatively, "Crouching Dragon, Hidden Rat".
As at press time there has been no confirmation or denial from Lim Guan Eng or a body double in the starring role.
