Lynas: DAP should stop pretending and ask Lim Guan Eng and Yeo Bee Yin for clarification

Earlier today, Tanah Rata assemblyman Chiong Yoke Kong said the government should allow Malaysians to understand why it decided to remove a precondition for Lynas Corp to keep on operating.

However, Chiong is barking up the wrong tree and should instead direct his questions at Yeo Bee Yin, a fellow DAP member who happens also to be a minister in Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s cabinet.

On the 31stof May 2019, the tai-chi-queen clarified that the US800 mil Aussie-corp would still have to resolve the issue of radioactive waste produced at its plant in Pahang before it is allowed to continue operations.

Problem is, her clarification ran contrary to a clarification provided by the person whose statement she was trying to clarify.

That person is none other than Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who, a day earlier, told a press conference in Tokyo, Japan, that Lynas Corp would be allowed to keep operating its processing plant in Malaysia.

This effectively means the Prime Minister had long agreed that Lynas did not need to repatriate its water leach purification (WLP) residue just to get its licence renewed and is merely “putting things into proper perspective” with his latest statement.


SUBANG JAYA: The biggest problem with the DAP is that it is a problem. Understand this, and everything else falls into place.

Earlier today, Tanah Rata assemblyman Chiong Yoke Kong said the government should allow Malaysians to understand why it decided to remove a precondition for Lynas Corp to keep on operating.

Caling it a U-Turn, the Pahang DAP state assemblyman added that PH ministers made “clear promises” to the people prior to GE14 and owe it to them to provide an explanation.


Chiong is right.

On the 31stof May 2019, TTF posted:

Prior to May 2018, party secretary general and man-who-many-believe-signed-a-lifelong-contract-with Brylcream, Lim Guan Eng, spoke in his capacity as Chief Minister when insisting that the Penang state government “never wavered in its stand against rare earth plants and nuclear plants.”

“We will not allow any uranium extraction, rare earth and other materials to be harvested.

“Despite whatever environmental safeguards taken by the DoE (on rare earth and nuclear plants), the state government will not agree with it,” he said.

The remarks, made during a 24thof August 2017 press conference, were in reference to the Lynas project and directed at the (then) deputy president of the MCA, Dato’ Seri Wee Ka Siong.

Guan Eng was even spotted holding a placard that read “Stop Lynas, Save Malaysia” at an anti-Lynas demonstration that also saw participants holding “1Lynas Big Lie” banners.

Lynas isn’t a nuclear plant, which begs the question if Guan Eng is a retard or if he pretends to be one just to gain sympathy.

Notwithstanding, Chiong is right to say that PH leaders were dead against the mining Corp though he conveniently missed out the part about these leaders being “primarily from the DAP.”

But he seems to be barking up the wrong tree. He should instead direct his questions at Yeo Bee Yin, a fellow DAP member who happens also to be a minister in Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s cabinet.

On the 31stof May 2019, the tai-chi-queen  clarified that the US800 mil Aussie-corp would still have to resolve the issue of radioactive waste produced at its plant in Pahang before it is allowed to continue operations.

Problem is, the clarification ran contrary to a clarification provided by the person whose statement she was trying to clarify.

That person is none other than Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who, a day earlier, told a press conference in Tokyo, Japan, that Lynas Corp would be allowed to keep operating its processing plant in Malaysia.

The statement immediately courted a barrage of criticisms as rights groups and netizens began ripping Pakatan Harapan apart for “betraying the people.”

Still, Mahathir never once put it that Lynas would be asked to resolve anything as requisite to renew its license, meaning, the GoM had all along planned to renew the miner’s license come hell or high water.

This effectively means the Prime Minister had long agreed that Lynas did not need to repatriate its water leach purification (WLP) residue just to get its license renewed and is merely “putting things into proper perspective” with his latest statement.

But Yeo disagrees.

The onus should therefore be on Chiong to seek an explanation from her and not the GoM as a complete unit.

Perhaps Yeo understands Mahathir at a psychic level and is able to interpret what he says better than any of us.
