    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.

    http://www.thestar.com.my/news/story...946&sec=nation

    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.

    Datuk Michelle Yeoh got it when she start to be part time retired. can be say, no longer active in acting. like 2 movies in 4 years.
    we do not object LCW getting Datuk. is just not the time yet......

    hm....... current government paid him RM300k for the achievement. make it such a way, promotion fees

    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,
    Ensure his safety? Who in Malaysia wants to kill him? If anything he is a hero! Why the extra security after he won the medal? You mean people want to kill him because he won a medal? What kind of excuse is this??

    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.
    IF THIS DOESN'T SCREAM MISUSE OF POWER I DON'T KNOW WHAT DOES. IF DOES DOESN'T SCREAM POLITICISING THE ISSUE I DON'T KNOW WHAT DOES!

    But wait... the best part is coming...

    Its just a coincidence that he came back during the by-election.
    Its just a FREAKING coincidence that he came back early. SO WHY WAS HE FLOWN BACK SPECIALLY IN A SPECIAL PLANE BEFORE THE GAMES HAVE ENDED? PLEASE DON'T INSULT OUR INTELLIGENCE!


    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!

    I don't think you should put too much weight on a Datuk title. Its worthless these days.... Maybe not worthless, nut can sell one for several thousand Ringgit...

    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!

    So Nicol David got datukship and she's part time retiring soon? Isn't RM300k for any Malaysian who wins silver? It's an OG08 incentive, not just for LCW.

    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.

    So why are you getting so worked up?
    BTW,maybe the last thing anyone should travel on is an RMAF or private plane.It's not the safest mode of air travel.(One high flying Spore CEO died in an air crash as an unofficial guest of INA Air Force recently.)

    I'm not worked up because of the Datuk, I'm worked up because the medal was brought to a political ceremony.

So BN is making LCW as a symbol of national achievement under the leadership of BN government. Didn't you guys see national newspaper Sin Chew Jik Poh reported both BN and opposition were organising various event to celebrate LCW success in getting the OG silver medal? Both side tried very hard to "associate" LCW's victory with them? It is just part of political strategy and propaganda.

    BN is smart enough to know that giving rewards and honour to LCW will please the chinese community in Permatang Pauh. Just part of their tactics to swing the Chinese votes to BN.

    It is no big deal. So what if one is called datuk??

    I am proud of LCW achievement and think that LCW should be handsomely rewarded but to get a datukship now? I think it is too early. Don' thinlk it is a good idea. LCW and Misbun just announce they will foucs on next achievement which are Asian Game and Next Oplympic didn't they?I think it is not too late to give LCW datukship when he win gold medal in these events or even next World championship.
    i totally agreed with you. I have read Malaysiakini 2 days back. In the statement said that this BN used tactics to arranged the LCW schedule to awarded him "Datukship". So that can get more votes from Chinese in PP election to BN. I hate this politicians all, and the "white hair" some more make me vomit blood. He thought can speak mandarin mean can get more Chinese's vote. I tell you Chinese not stupid.

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

    Nowadays,datukship's value has decrease..I think over 50 ppl was awarded datukship every year..
    LCW will feel happy if they dun disturb him anymore after de election n he can pay more attention in his training...
    i think Misbun should be award by datukship also..it's unfair if only chong wei get the datoship!!
