Even Ibrahim Ali, Perkasa president, not known for a high IQ, thinks the Langkawi MP stupid.
Which school did Langkawi MP go to, asks Ibrahim Ali https://shar.es/1J2NDk
Perkasa president slams Nawawi Ahmad for claiming his salary as MP was paid by the government, not the people.
KUALA LUMPUR: Which school did Langkawi MP Nawawi Ahmad study at?
This was the question Perkasa President Ibrahim Ali asked, following Nawawi’s statement yesterday that his salary as an Member of Parliament was paid by the government, not the people.
“Which school did the Langkawi MP go to?
“Ibrahim Ali is asking because it appears that he (Nawawi) doesn’t know a thing about the concept of taxation.”
Ibrahim explained to reporters at the Perkasa headquarters today that the government earned its revenue through taxes paid by the people, therefore the money did indeed belong to the people.
“Ask Nawawi where the government got its money from.
“The government collects its revenue through taxes paid by the people, so it means that it’s the people’s money.”
Ibrahim subsequently said that if Nawawi’s logic was that paid taxes only belonged to the government, then the people might as well stop paying taxes.
“If it only belongs to the government because they are the ones who collect taxes, can we volunteer to not pay taxes?
“Does this make any sense at all?” he questioned.
Too stupid to say sorry?

Langkawi MP: My salary not paid by people, it’s gov’t money
Langkawi MP Nawawi Ahmad has come under fire for stating that his salary is not paid by the people but is from the government.
He said public funds did not belong to the people, courting ire from social media users.
“The salaries of MPs are not paid by the people but the government and the government’s money is not the people’s money.
“Once money has passed on to another quarter, it is no longer our money.
“if the government’s money is really the people’s money, let us attack all government departments to take back our money,” he said in a Facebook comment.
Nawawi made the comment in a debate about taxes where a netizen criticised him and reminded that his salary is paid for by the people.
This was after he made a post highlighting that Denmark’s free education and healthcare, something advocated by Malaysia’s opposition, came at the expense of a minimum of 40 percent income tax and 25 percent sales tax.
Since then, a screenshot of Nawawi’s controversial comment was widely circulated on social media.
#Throwback Nawawi Ahmad posted Karpal Singh’s accident photos with a rude comment. After being pressured, Nawawi apologised

Nawawi: Netizens made me see my mistake
Umno’s Langkawi MP Nawawi Ahmad says the outrage that broke out in cyberspace over his remarks about the death of Bukit Gelugor MP Karpal Singh had made him rethink his actions and realise he had done wrong.
“After two days looking at the unhappy responses on Facebook and social media, it made me rethink the statement. I re-read it several times, only then I realised (why) so many people were upset, it was very inappropriate,” he told a press conference tonight.

Yes, I know, the Electric Train Service (ETS) is quick and safe. Indeed, many people I know take it, and I often urge those I know to travel the Ipoh-KL-Ipoh route by ETS.
