VOXPOP 'Our learned scientists say it's perfectly safe so let's throw the ball back to the Australian public.'
Report: Give Lynas TOL, plant not a major hazard
Anonymous #47094963: Let's not get distracted from an equally important issue - the waste generated by the plant.
We should compel the Australians to transport the wastes back to Australia regularly, and not 'if there is a need'.
What have Australians got to worry about if our esteemed and learned scientists have said it is perfectly safe?
Let's throw the ball back to the Australian public, and we'll see how Lynas Australia explains its way out.
Loyal Malaysian: Hardly a surprise, isn't it? But let's hope the future generations in the Gebeng area will not curse the memory of these PSC (parliamentary select committee) members who rubber stamped the decision of their political masters.
JomUbahUbah: All the PSC panel members really do not have brains and are talking rubbish.
Since Australia does not want the plant to be built there, everybody, even those without education, knows that this plant is dangerous to the people's health.
Only the corrupt Umno and BN do not bother about the people's health, they only care how much money Lynas puts in their pockets.
Onyourtoes: Have you noticed the rare earth plant was allowed to begin construction when the issue of safety was not totally looked into?
This is how BN government and foreign investors operate - safety and environmental impact are the least of their concerns.
Build and make money first, and damn the rest. I am glad 308 (GE12) happened and now every issue is put on the table for thorough scrutiny and examination.
Fair&Just: Please let all of us know how Lynas is going to dispose of the resulting waste if it is radioactive, and what concrete measures will be in place to ensure the plant and the refinery process is accident proof.
Lim Chong Leong: Mohame Khaled Nordin of the PTPTN (National Higher Education Loan Fund) freeze debacle? Zulkifli Noordin of the rampage at a Bar Council forum?
This PSC panel members are Umno lapdogs. We do not accept its findings.
So if it is a chemical plant and not a nuclear plant, does it makes it less dangerous? They have not heard of cyanide or mercury or lead or arsenic?
Umno will sell our souls for cash if we let them.
Ace: Of course it's safe, the PSC members are not working and staying there. The Australians also say that it's safe - provided it is located in Malaysia.
Police raid Nizar's offices, seize phone and computer
Dumno: Look at that - an opposition member treated worse than a criminal simply because he expressed an opinion.
Perkasa and Umno have made more seditious statements than this. This is nothing but gutter politics by Umno-BN.
Good Men: This is a clear case of harassment. Former Perak MB Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin had done nothing wrong. What he said regarding the Johor sultan paying RM520,000 for a number plate was merely the truth.
Most Malaysians would struggle to even qualify for a loan on a RM200,000 home, and if they did, they would still need a lifetime mortgage and hope they never lose their job while paying it off.
Now I'm not saying that anyone should be told how to spend their money, but don't expect to be immune from criticism when you spend RM520,000 on a car's number plate.
Clever Voter: It is clear to many that the statement made by Nizar had no malicious intent, it was a thought that ought to be taken with good intentions.
There is no reason to intimidate a good man. Voters will back him nonetheless. Shame on the police.
Giudice: Nizar does not deny making the remarks (which to right-thinking people were perfectly justified).
Why the need to raid and worse still, seize his things (phone and computer)? There is indeed no clearer case of abuse of power.
Chicken Chop: How long does it takes before police act on Wanita Umno chief Shahrizat Abdul Jalil's family for the RM250 million Cowgate scandal, compared to this so-called seditious remark made by Nizar? The whole world is watching our circus.
Kosongcafe: Just a tweet about WWW1 and the police found it necessary to raid Nizar's offices. Any excuse to lay hands on opposition leader's private computer and handphone.
