|Nov 4, 08 5:35pm|
|Kira-kira 200 anggota Gabungan Graduan Melayu Muda (GGMM) mengadakan perarakan secara aman hari ini sebelum memfailkan saman di Mahkamah Tinggi Pulau Pinang terhadap kerajaan Pulau Pinang berhubung penggunaan papan tanda nama jalan dalam pelbagai bahasa di tapak warisan Georgetown. Mereka mengadakan perarakan itu dari Padang Kota Lama menuju ke perkarangan Mahkamah Tinggi yang terletak tidak jauh dari situ.
Dalam writ saman yang difailkan pada jam 2.55 petang, gabungan itu memohon mahkamah mengeluarkan perintah menghalang papan tanda itu dinaikkan.
Gabungan itu turut memohon satu deklarasi dibuat berhubung Perkara 152 Perlembagaan Persekutuan bagi mempertahankan Bahasa Melayu sebagai Bahasa Kebangsaan, demikian menurut laporan Bernama.
Dalam penyata tuntutan, Nik Rizman yang juga anggota GGMM, menyatakan bahawa beliau telah menghantar notis tuntutan kepada kedua-dua defendan supaya membatalkan keputusan memasang papan tanda nama jalan dalam pelbagai bahasa di tapak warisan Georgetown.
Kedua-dua defendan telah mengabaikan notis yang dihantar melalui Tetuan Azam Aziz dan Rose Maria menyebabkan beliau memohon satu deklarasi dan injunksi dari mahkamah.

We all know when the suing starts it never stops. It happens in US and now Malaysia seems to be getting up on par with them. Soon we have groups suing DBKL for Jawi road signs and Blind NGOs suing State Gov for not having Blind Signages on every road as well. See what I mean when the suing starts it never stops. Simply because under the art of wording and how you interpret those black & white words, anyone can find a loophole or excuse to sue anything under the sun.
So in times of economic uncertainty, certain groups rather waste public resources, time & money to cause damage to anyone they dislike and hope to make some bucks and political mileage out of it. Should some student group NGO should sue teachers or Education Dept for their crappy results? Maybe Mom’s can sue Gov Depts or Employers for not having baby care facilities and free milk? How about suing KLIA for using multiligual signages and public announcements? Sue Astro for broadcasting non-malay shows? wow… neverending man!
I know one group likely to be very happy with all these nonsense… the LAWYERS! yes! soon we will have more lawyers driving BMWs and help the economy. What a way to counter economic slowdown!
THE FUTURE IS HERE
For any Malaysian company planning to export and sell their products in Singapore will have to step up their R&D for next year as Singapore plans to implement GREEN TAGS for most products from home appliances to cars.
If that is so one company will be effected and that’s Proton. With its Campro engine which is claimed to be effecient and powerful, will it pass Singapore’s GREEN TAG criteria.
Campro isn’t fuel efficient in towns but it fares better on long runs. Where Singapore is concern its in-town that matters hence hybrid cars will pass well for the low emmissions and fuel usage. Hybrids fares better in-town compare to long distances which works well in the island.
I hope Proton produces really efficient and great looking cars for Malaysia as well as other countries which are looking GREEN as the future tagline.
Where else in Australia – Proton Persona did well with high ratings for fuel efficiency and emmisions. read post here http://www.autospectator.com/cars/proton/0039982-2008-proton-persona-greenest-proton-ever
13/05/2008 — The green credentials of the new 2008 Proton Persona have been given official endorsement with the Federal Government Green Vehicle Guide awarding it a four star rating, the first Proton to achieve this level of energy efficiency.
The new Proton Persona is amongst the greenest cars on Australian roads, earning a 4 star rating in the 2008 Government Green Vehicle Guide. The four star rating is based on both the fuel efficiency and the low level of emissions the new Persona achieves from its 1.6litre Campro twin cam 16 valve engine.
Persona ranks an equal rating with several other smaller cars including Mitsubishi Colt, Smart Four 4, Mini Cooper and Citroen C2, with the same four star rating and beating many far more popular models thanks to its low fuel usage.
The only cars in front of Persona on the Green Vehicle Guide are considerably more expensive and most are smaller than the new Proton.
Persona scores a 6.5 air pollution rating and a 7.5 greenhouse rating in the Green Vehicle Guide, the same as the smaller and more expensive Citroen C2 mini car.
According to Proton Cars Australia managing director, John Startari, the achievement underlines Proton’s commitment to building economical and cost effective cars that are also kind to the environment.
“Persona is the first Proton to score a four star rating, however our cars have always returned excellent fuel economy and have been highly rated in the Green Vehicle Guide over the past few years,” said John Startari.
“The Jumbuck ute was listed as the greenest and most economical ute or light truck on the Australian market, recording a 3.5 star rating on the 2007 Green Vehicle Guide,” he said.
“Proton engineers have done a lot of work refining the engine mapping of the Persona to deliver better fuel efficiency as well as better driveability and performance on the road and that is apparent when you get behind the wheel,” he added.
“As well as improvements under the bonnet the Persona has benefited from a cleaner, more aerodynamic design which has lowered drag further enhancing its fuel efficiency as well as lowering noise levels,” said John Startari.
The Greenhouse Rating awards a score out of ten for the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) the vehicle produces, the higher the score the lower the CO2. emitted.
All new vehicle models up to 3.5 tonnes sold in Australia are tested by the government to determine both the fuel consumption and the level of CO2 emissions.
The Air Pollution Rating is based on the level of air pollutant emissions allowable under the standard to which the particular vehicle has been successfully tested for supply to the Australian market.
