Everything seems to be going LCW's way.... Olympic Silver medallist (Gold would be much better), RM300,000 incentive, RM3,000 monthly pension, awarded a Datukship, World No 1. Early birthday present for him.

The ones that appeared in chinese press yesterday sounds like a bourne identity movie :
According to what I heard (i cant read chinese, my chinese ed friends read the news to me- from Guang Ming & Nanyang), LCW already bought his plane ticket going back the normal way. told his family in Penang abt it.
His older bro & other family members were waiting for LCW at the Penang airport, along Penang state govern representatives. I'm not sure if Penang Chief Minister, Lim GE was there but you & I know which party Penang state represent.
THey waited & waited & waited, no LCW, LCW had already arrived 1 hr earlier. Hp no line to call, LCW couldnt tell his family abt the change of plans.
Last minute, they whisked LCW off to take him in private plane together with the Sports Minister. Upon arrival, took him straight to Berapit in chaffeured car.
Deputy PM presented the cheque. AND the BN candidate for PP was there was you've seen in Youtube.
I think this was the part where LCW got & said dont use him to garner votes. And also todays english press you can see Lim GE slamming BN for "wasting public funds" taking LCW on private plane.
so..... it's very clear what's the tug a war is about, LCW caught in the middle. hopefully Victor, you wouldnt be too angry with LCW. One side is Penang CM, other side is Deputy PM, Sports Minister, all got power wan, some more than the other.
Hence, that's why my friends said "They kidnap LCW from the airport", the dude didnt know what happened till too late.

oh yeah, addition to the article Cooler posted on Misbun's wife, it appeared cos reporters asked her comments aft the Sports Minister announced they're giving Misbun RM50,000 to assist the wife's medical costs. Today, it's reported that the $$$ is going for wife's kidney transplant, both her kidneys has failed.
Hmm, LCW said he would hold charity events for a donation drive towards the cost of the operation, as appreciation to his beloved coach.

I can't understand the fuss about a Datuk title. Michelle Yeoh,ex-Bond girl, is also a Datuk.It's public recognition for some hard-earned international achievement in their case.What's wrong with that? Can anyone explain what privileges come with that title?
But LCW getting ambushed for political purposes is silly. Did they really think he can pull in votes? In any case, it's important that LCW lets them know that every time he gets sidetracked politically,it can cost him a badminton title.That's a high price to pay.So if he doesn't know how to say 'No', maybe he can try and make the distractor decide by asking them,'Do you want me to win a badminton title or be part of your roadshow?' That would make them responsible for LCW's badminton outcome.

PLEASE! DON'T INSULT THE INTELLIGENCE OF THE RAKYAT
"We brought him in a private jet so he wouldn't be stuck in a traffic jam and to ensure his safety," said Arif Shah,
Wouldn't be stuck in a traffic jam? What the f*ck??? What has changed before he won the medal and after? Now he Datuk cannot get stuck in traffic arr? Why the rush? Can't you make the presentation ceremony later? Have to rush to that particular place at the particular time. Why? Don't act like we are all stupids.
He was flown to the RMAF air base here in a private jet accompanied by Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Ismail Sabri Yaakob and then chauffeur-driven to his hometown in Berapit.
But wait... the best part is coming...
“It’s just a coincidence that he came back during the by-election.
Arif Shah said Lee was put on a private jet since he had quite a number of people in his entourage and it was difficult for them to book seats on other airlines.
What the hell? He can't travel in an entourage now? So now whenever LCW goes from one place to another and he has to travel with 'quite a number of people in his entourage' we have to use the jet? Since you said this event is just a coincidence and not political, so every time he has to travel in an entourage we have to use a RMAF jet?
The more I find out the more angry I get. The use of Defense Ministry facilities? The use of a private jet? What is happening to my country?
I don't think anyone could ever get fooled by the spin that the medal has not been politicized. Shame shame shame! PTUI!

Now arr, you find 10 people in Malaysia 8 of them might be Datuks. A worthless title. Just put your first name as Datuk. No one will even know the difference.
Unlike England's knighthood... you can go and find the queen anytime. How cool is that!

LCW's datukship is unique. Who else among datuks get to have both title and money? Reigning world womens squash champion Nicol Davids seems to play just as well with her datukship. Maybe, this award will ensure LCW will not end up the way Cheah Soon Kit and Yap Kim Hock did, because this (Datukship) commands respect, and can be useful to LCW when he retires as many companies would want to appoint him as board chairman. Now if only they had awarded the same title to CSK/YKH, perhaps there would have been many LCWs around instead of just one. This is one way of looking at it.

This make the LCW "Datukship" not valueable. Only part of the politicians tactic. After the election you think they(BN) still bother of LCW?
