VW gets control, Proton's parasites get the last laugh

According to Malaysiakini, the hot & cold Proton + VW deal is now hot again. But if you don't have a Malaysiakini paid account (and you can't see the entire report if you don't... damn those cheap bastards)... here's a report from Singapore's Today newspaper.

Whenever I see any press reports playing up an imminent Proton + foreigner deal, I have to ask:

1. How is UMNO going to deal with the guaranteed fallout from the politically connected bumiputra vendors, dealers and other assorted parasites?


2. Assuming this newest report is true and VW gets a majority stake in Proton and runs it as a genuine commercial concern..., how then, will the parasites be compensated?

Now... you don't honestly think that Proton, the govt, and by extension our national coffers - are going to get away WITHOUT compensating the UMNO grassroots leaders - [oopssss... pardon me... errrr] the TUV, SIRIM and Proton OK certified quality vendors and dealers - for their "losses", do you? After all, we need to uphold our sovereignty, 'kedaulatan' and defend our 'maruah bangsa dan negara'... [I think I need to puke now].

If you ask me, the demands for compulsory car scrapping, bank loan quotas and the RM16 million cash already dispensed - is just the tip of the iceberg. There will be much more to burden our tax-paying shoulders if VW really gets control. He who laughs last, laughs loudest.
