Please do not blame the Malaysian Government nor Malaysia Airlines because SQ flight was just 25 km away from where MH17 was allegedly shot down.

A Singapore Airlines plane was reportedly only 25km away from flight MH17 at the moment it crashed near the Russian border in Ukraine, according to images posted by a website that tracks global aircrafts in real time.

Flightradar24.com tweeted a graphic showing Singapore Airlines SQ351 and Air India AI113 and said both planes were about 25km of MH17 when the Boeing 777 disappeared and crashed after being allegedly shot down.

Flight MH17, bound for Kuala Lumpur, had taken off from Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport. There were 280 passengers, 15 crew members and three infants onboard.

Read the STOMP Singapore Press – Rebel allegedly bragging about shooting down a plane thinking it was the Ukrainian military jet! “That looks like this?”

Some leaders are born retarded thinking we are blind and can’t read between the lines. The world has abandoned Ukraine airspace and not Russian airspace! The foolish people always think the world is a place for them to lie.

The passing of the black box is gonna tell something…someone is making a big mistake and trying very hard to hide it. Why passed the black box in the first place?

We may be the oldest oxes on earth but we’re still that sharp and quick in assimilating the whole episode in this finger-pointing crisis.

We pray for the truth to be out soon and we support the Malaysian Government to pursue such cruelty against humans and to get justice for MAS flight 17!

We support Dutch PM Mark Rutte for his vow of justice if Malaysian plane is attacked.

Netherlands has dispatched Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans and a team of forensic experts to Ukraine to probe the disaster.

Thank you Dutch PM and Malaysian Government for your acts against inhumanity!

To the opposition party who shamelessly speculating against MH370 and MH17 without a single bullet we say to you please grow up don’t just growing old by whining and whining till the kingdom comes home you’ll still whining because you people are just the whiner and the Rhinos! Can’t you please unite with the present Government to protect your own country from the invasion of foreign forces?

Please whine more about the invasion in eastern side of Sabah and get your asses down in the field and face those uninvited enemies if you are the country men and women! Otherwise you people are mere collaborators for your own enemies!

The sabotaging acts by Ahmad Jauhari, Zahrah Zaid and Azhari Dahlan – Part 1


Malaysia Airlines (MAS) which bear the brunt MH370 tragedy now facing serious internal problems when nearly 1000 cabin crew‘s resignation have caused a massive loss of RM100 million over the next two years in terms of training costs.

Overwork stress and burned out factors;  other than ‘caught’ in between the other airlines – AirAsia and AirAsiaX prompted about 120 aircraft technicians; engineers (40); cabin crew (300) and 30 pilots completed their service in the company have left MAS for AirAsia and AirAsiaX. This proves that MAS has now become the National Aviation Training Centre for AirAsia and AirAsiaX under the leadership of Ahmad Jauhari, Zahrah Zaid and Azhari Dahlan and their proxies collaborators –  Izham; Hayati Ali and bunch of MAS Senile Executives.

Each resignation took place upon the lacking of welfare for employees in the last three years especially the Technicians, Engineers, Pilots and Cabin Crew were under this trio’s brutalities; whose collaboration with the middle management – Senile Non-Performer is to sabotaging the company’s operations by the power of Flight Operation Director – Izham; Inflight Services Senile Woman-In-Charge – Hayati Ali; working hand in gloves with the Senile Non-Performing executives.

These bunch of executives are known as FAN-NERDS and apple polishers. They are out to design a structure to kill the airline by collaborating with NUFAM feeding the yellow union turns EMPLOYEES’ killer all the insight information so to increase the pressure forcing MAS Cabin Crew to resign whilst providing a higher workload with shortage of manpower; finding ways looking to reduce the allowances and benefits that the employees are entitled to. 

In shortest explanation; MAS Flight Operation Director Izham, MAS Human Relics Director Zahrah Zaid together with Senile Women in charge – Hayati Ali are at best proposing unsound structure for MAS Cabin Crew with only USD 0.60 cents increased per hour for MAS Cabin Crew and non-stop 23 working days for the Pilots so to pressure them leaving the company and destroy the operation once and for all. They stole the surplus from the Cabin Crew’s expenditure to pay the increased and kept the remaining RM1 million for their own secret bonus before Prime Minister of Malaysia announces the new take-over.

Cheers to the TRIOs of this thread for successfully musketeered the work for Tony Fat Pariah Fernandez by collaborating with MAS middle management.

Zahrah Zaid and Hayati Ali authorised for every completion of the training funded by the company; there must be a massive pulling out of these new trainees by her collaborators – a bunch of senile Fan-nerd executives using highest pressures and purportedly discriminatory work pattern with the help of the whispering campaigns from Tony the FAT ASS’s syndicate so to force them out of MAS and into AirAsiaX. This is done by also promoting AirAsiaX to the newly recruited MAS Cabin Crew via badmouthing the company’s situations.

Sources informedfor several years not only the company failed to give bonuses and benefits for employees getting vacation with the family that also ceases whilst coping with a tremendous increased in workload during this shortage of staff in so much a way to abuse them and pressuring them to leave the airlines for AirAsia and AirAsiaX.

Various factors including an increasing employees’ eagerness to continue working with the company is now totally lost via this collaboration framework between MAS and AirAsia (which is still in existence despite the dodgy “share-swap” deal with AirAsia was cancelled by the Prime Minister of Malaysia).

Almost now and then the employee concerned after having completed their training will always find another attractive job offer from another airline with a higher rate of pay. It seems there are AirAsia’s syndicates who‘s watching MAS and wait for the right time to fishing’ MAS new caliber staff.

Here is one example of the newest syndicate who joined MAS to recruit its quality Cabin Crew so to join AirAsiaX…this ugly Pondan is a member of NUFAM.

AAspy1We saw this gay asshole who keeps fanning Dato Kamarudin in one the parties we were invited.

First this gay prostitute joined MAS…

AAspy2

And he reported frequently to Dato Kamarudin Meranun and AirAsia Chief Operating Officer Bo Lingam; is now promoted to AirAsiaX after he (this gay prostitute) successfully influenced MAS new recruit to join AirAsiaX.

AAspy3

AAspy4

AAspy5Concurrently he also recruits MAS Cabin Crew via his facebook. So guys and gals do you see what we have discovered from Tony Fat Pariah Fernandez’s strategy to slowly killing MAS via the collaboration framework? His next promotion is Manager of Cabin Crew for AirAsiaX after he managed to fan Azran Osman.  It looks AirAsiaX is recruiting lots of gay prostitutes to fulfill the market supply possibly for the BABI too – Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim.

Good advice for all airliners in the world; stay away from doing business with Tony Fernandez the Pariah low caste airline and do not hire his men or his staff such as Ahmad Jauhari; Zahrah Zaid and Azhari Dahlan.

To all world airliners – DO NOT TAKE AIR ASIA’S STAFF BECAUSE THEY ARE TRAINED TO BE CORPORATE ESPIONAGE WORLDWIDE.

Information obtained indicates MAS large amount of funds is allocated for staff training programs of which RM200,000 is for each MAS pilots who must undergo two years of training and RM190,000 is the cost of training the flight engineer over the next period of five years.

In addition; the cost of two years of training for each technician is about RM75,000 and the four months training period for a steward and stewardess  a stewardess involves expenditure of RM50,000 each.

The source said Who wants to work with MAS if there are companies that offer a salary of RM30,000 per month for experienced engineers from seven to 10 years and some technicians also are offered RM8,000 a month, compared to RM3, 000 in MAS.” 

This is how MAS bleeds to death with such losses in trainings; and human assets.

Asked whether the tragedy MH370 affect employees of the company; the source said added it certainly indemnify the company RM1.7 billion otherwise would have been in worse situations.

“If it was not for MH370 MAS staff morale has weakened over the last three years,” he said. Another word; MH370 fosters closer ties internally.

The source said, the roster for Pilot and Cabin Crew force them to work for long hours shuffling between international and non-international flights and at worst quick turning around the flights to save cost so for fattening the salaries of Ahmad Jauhari; Zahrah Zaid and Azhari Dahlan whose salaries grew over 200% increment in these three years whilst the staff working beneath them sufferred heart attack; burned out over the high workload and lowering paid for those who have been committed to the National Carrier their entire life.

“This situation has resulted in staff suffering pressures; physically and mentally forcing them broken up with their family with no time spent for family when working with MAS” the source said.

The situation got even worse when MAS flight into Bangalore turned back due to emergency landing and another flight into Inch-eon; Korea turned emergency landing into Hong Kong have frightened both the Pilots and Cabin Crew to the highest degrees forcing them to contemplating a quick resignation with MAS. All these emergency landings were orchestrated by Azhari Dahlan with the help from AirAsia’s Engineering who planted something foreign during the logging of AirAsia’s aircraft parked next to MAS and Firefly aircrafts inside MAS MRO. The firefly is next on target by Tony the Pariah Fernandez.

Sources have revealed Ahmad Jauhari and Zahrah Zaid have stolen the available budget approved by ex-MAS CEO/MD Tengku Azmil for MAS Cabin Crew where they could have been paid USD15 an hour (RM45) but the available budget is used and injected into his salary for his own personal gain. AJ shared his remaining budget with Zahrah Zaid; Izham; Azhari Dahlan; Salleh Tabrani and other directors and shot up the directors’ salaries to 250% to keep them quiet about the accidental surplus of the available budget for staff below the management level.

The end result the trio have delivered successfully – Skytrax awardes best Cabin Crew 2014 is Garuda Air. MAS used to be best Cabin Crew in the world now dropped to number five whilst AirAsia and AirAsiaX maintained Number 1 & 2 low caste airline in the world.

Congrats to Khazanah the blind ladies who never saw this coming! We have information there are a bunch of conmen now eying at AJ’s position. We hope the Prime Minister of Malaysia will make the best decision not to let these bunch of conmen bring him down again.

The Prime Minister of Malaysia must also know the disintegration plan on MAS is to also share with some politicians from opposition side especially Anwar the Gay De Facto Leader who are out to gain profit from MAS selling its entities and a golden opportunity to own a lucrative long-term business because MAS despite the hurdles is still generating revenue for the country. The GAY De Facto Leader may not win the position from Selangor current Mayor so to prepare his next campaign for PRU14; the gay leader must own MAS by hook or by crook.

In short; AJ and gang is betraying Khazanah (Tan Sri Azman Mokthar will take the fall after all) and Khazanah the ladies in red is to be blamed for the fallout in the next PRU14.

MAS management could not be reached for comment and the public need to file for missing MAS spokenman for unable to comment on this sabotaging act by Ahmad Jauhari; Zahrah Zaid and Azhari Dahlan who work for Tony the Pariah Fernandez.

Stayed to our upcoming part 2 – INNER revelation ON AJ and Tony!

Punish the Management, but save the airline, MAS first CEO tells Putrajaya


Pouring scorn on calls to declare Malaysia Airlines (MAS) bankrupt, former chief executive officer Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahman said the loss-making flag carrier should not be punished for mismanagement by government-appointed teams, but instead, Putrajaya should bail it out once again.

Abdul Aziz said MAS was in a deplorable state now as those who manage it are “not doing their jobs very well” and have not been able to adapt to the competitive airline industry.

“The problem started in 1994 when the government decided to give up its shares and sold it to a private group. It all went downhill from there,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

“By 1998, the government had to step in and redo the whole thing to salvage it. Since then, the government has bailed out and changed its management teams many times but until today, the problem has not been fixed.”

In 1994, Tan Sri Tajudin Ramli bought a 32% equity in MAS and was the airline’s chief executive officer from then until 2001, after which he sold back the shares to the government at RM8 a unit, when the market price was only half of that.

Since then, Tajudin has been entangled in a complicated series of expensive suits, counter-suits and appeals with various parties due to failure to service a billion ringgit loan he took to purchase the major stake in the national airline.

He has claimed that his purchase was forced “national service”, disguised as an arm’s length commercial deal, because the government wanted to appease the investment community and the public.

Abdul Aziz said until the late 1990s, MAS operated in a closed domestic market but then found that it could not compete with other emerging airlines, including budget ones which had rapidly taken over its market share.

“I can appreciate the people’s feelings. Because after helping so much, nothing has changed. If I were in their position, I would do the same. But, we have to think this way… that this is the national carrier. It can still be revived.” – Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahman, former CEO of MAS.

“There was rapid economic development in the world and people got very ambitious. They began to have more airlines in all parts of the world and here also, we have AirAsia, AirAsia X and others. These provided competition internally and externally.”

“It became very competitive but MAS management could not adapt themselves to the sudden competitive environment because those who are managing it are not doing their jobs very well,” he added.

Abdul Aziz, who chaired MAS from 1982 until his retirement 10 years later, stressed that he was against any suggestion for MAS to file for bankruptcy following its continuous dismal showing in profits, adding that it was not too late to save it.

“MAS is not an ordinary company that is selling rice, or sundry goods. It is an established organisation catering for the whole world.”

“This (filing for bankruptcy) is the easy way out for people who don’t like to apply their minds but I will always stress this point. It was so difficult to establish it in the first place, back in the early 70s, when we were lacking in so many things and we had no money,” he said.

Despite the challenges and limited resources in the early days, he said MAS built itself up, made profits and became the pride and joy of the nation.

“Why? Because of the pride of Malaysia. Because it carries our flag. I will say that a national carrier is the representative of the people of the country globally in the skies and on the ground. The logo has been there for more than 48 years and it must not disappear just like that.”

In a recent interview with the The Wall Street Journal, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said that bankruptcy could be among several options as a way to restructure MAS, after years of losses and bitter conflicts with its labour unions.

This followed MAS recording a net loss of RM443.4 million in the first quarter of this year, up from a net loss of RM278.8 million in the same period last year.

MAS had earlier said the tragic MH370 incident had a “dramatic impact” on the traditionally weak first quarter performance, adding that the airliner experienced high numbers of cancellations and a decline in long-haul travel after flight MH370 went missing on March 8.

MAS had lost money for the last three years, beset by high costs and stiff competition, and this was the carrier’s worst quarterly loss since October-December 2011.

However, Abdul Aziz acknowledged that MAS has not seen a turnaround despite the multiple government bailouts, which has caused taxpayers to be against yet another one.

“I can appreciate the people’s feelings. Because after helping so much, nothing has changed. If I were in their position, I would do the same,” he said.

“But, we have to think this way… that this is the national carrier. It can still be revived. Put the right people there.”

“And maybe, you catch hold of those who made these blunders and hang them. Maybe the people would like to see that. It will give confidence to the people that you are serious about solving the problem.”

Calling MAS his “baby”, Abdul Aziz said said he was “deeply engraved” in MAS, having helped with its start up after splitting from the Malaysia-Singapore Airlines in the early 70s.

He was also among those who had been roped in to draft both the Civil Aviation Act 1974 and the Civil Aviation Regulation 1996

“That is why I feel strongly about certain things pertaining to MAS,” the practising lawyer said.

“In the early days, when we started the airline, we did it from scratch. So everybody who joined the airline worked very hard to make sure it was successful. Because it was a challenge to us and for the sake of the nation.”

“And everyone was united on this. I think that is the reason why we were so proud of it. We put all our effort into it.

“Although there were some employee-employer problems, we ironed it all out amicably. Why? Because we were proud of the establishment. Everyone worked hard. We were inspired to make it work.”

Now, said Abdul Aziz, in order to save itself, MAS needs to “quickly adjust” to the competition and make sure they are still “vicious” in the fray.

“MAS does not seem to have the right formula to challenge the competition. The economic environment and the aviation industry have changed. It is now a more liberal market, open skies policy. They have to adjust themselves. If you are slow in adjusting, you will be in trouble.”

“Others are running and you are walking. How do you challenge them? If they are running, you should also run. In fact, you must run faster,” he added.

MAS should also take its employees into consideration as they are prepared to “work hard to make sure it survives,” he added.

“So MAS has the right foundation. It has the employees – the main asset – who are prepared to work hard to make sure we survive. We have the facilities now too, the expertise and the image.”

“If you as a leader or employer don’t pay attention to the union and your staff, then they, likewise, will also forget about you,” he said. – May 31, 2014.

Malaysiaairlinesfamilies salute Tan Sri Abdul Aziz for his patriotism and loyalty toward MAS.

To save MAS, the thick-skinned monkeys who keep clinging to the wreckage of MAS airplanes should leave MAS in urgency.

For MAS and its loss making trend under Ahmad Jauhari, Azahari Dahlan and Zahrah Zaid still staying put thinking they were the heros (?).  It is true they are heroes but the heroes with monkey faces and tails who carelessly caused huge losses to the national airline.

They should be arrested and investigated for the crime they organized against the national airline.  While they are not aware their asses are on the hot plate burning to the 1st degree; they should prepare to parachute out of MAS taking with them the stockholm Syndrome disease they employ on the middle management.

The Khazanah ladies in red too must be eradicated for the conspiracy they offer to Tony Fernandez to save AirAsia and destroy MAS tarnished the GLC status.

In a brief encounter, whenever the public read our posting against Tony Fernandez; the public will also be enjoying a hammering post from Tony’s baby – The NUFAM crooked gang on MAS. That is because Tony Pariah pays NUFAM to disrupt MAS from the outside simultaneously paying the TRIO bastards to destroy MAS from the inside.

Then the tax payers get MAS going down the drain and AirAsia going up the hill.

Not only that with MAS down and AirAsia up; here comes the hidden heroes who have been organizing to take over Putrajaya but failed; the Daredevil And Party of the desperado instigated by foreign forces to destroy the unity of its own country. Bearing the name of treason-ship Daredevil And Party are now taking MAS too with their magic hands swinging behind Putrajaya waiting in line to contract out MAS into pieces. The short story is You take One AJ&Gang take Two Tony Takes All.

Stay united MAS if you want to save the airline. Continue hammering the red devil if you want to survive. God Bless MAS and Malaysia!

What MAS first CEO says?


TSAA

When Yg Bhg TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN retired as the CEO/Managing Director of MAS, he left MAS with RM5 billion cash reserve. During his tenure as CEO, MAS employees have been paid yearly bonuses.  He served MAS from its inception in 1971 as its company secretary and director of legal affairs.  He served as CEO/Managing Director from 1981 until his retirement in 1991.

Yg Bhg Tan Sri (Dato’) Dr Abdul Aziz is a Fellow of Chartered Institute of Transport, United Kingdom, Fellow of Institute of Management Malaysia, Fellow of Institute of Directors Malaysia, Fellow of Institute of Public Relations Malaysia and Fellow of Asian Institute of Management Science. At present he is an active advocate and solicitor. He has more than 35 years experience in managing public and private corporations. He started by serving the government for 15 years, the first 7 years as an administrative officer and for 8 years he was in the judicial and legal service of the Federal Government.

He served as Magistrate, President Sessions Court, Federal Counsel and Assistant Parliamentary Draftsman. His last government appointment was as Federal Counsel and Legal Officer of the National Operation Council (NOC) during the Emergency of 1969.  Of course, he is an “Anak Kelantan”.

Yg Bhg Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahman is synonymous with MAS. That is why his heart strings are tugged whenever the word MAS is mentioned, MAS which was once the pride of the nation is gradually sliding into the deep end and will fade into oblivion if no efforts are made now to save it, wrote AINUL ASNIERA AHSAN, the reporter from malaysiagazette.com.

During this interview with a Malaysia Gazette reporter, Abdul Aziz who is known to be vocal and outspoken just couldn’t hide his  emotions anymore. As a Malaysian citizen who was responsible in building the national carrier from scratch to the pride of the nation, Abdul Aziz bristles whenever the option of MAS filing for bankruptcy is mentioned.

For Abdul Aziz, his heart is pierced deeply seeing MAS assets being disposed one after the other as well as its overseas assets which was the toil of his blood, sweat and tears, has now changed hands. He does not want MAS to be bankrupt but wants the national carrier to soar high again, workers morale reinvigorated and MAS image revived once again.

I’d be honoured to help but not work for MAS. I just want to do national service and two years is enough to turn MAS around. With deep honestly, I really feel sorry for MAS,” he told AINUL ASNIERA AHSAN at his house recently.

MALAYSIAGAZETTE: In your view Tan Sri, should MAS file for bankruptcy?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: There is no need for MAS to file for bankruptcy. What is going on in MAS right now is that they are adopting the wrong business model for the past 15 years.

Management changes has taken place numerous times but the crux of the problems plaguing MAS has never been dealt with. Although MAS managed to make some profit at times, the problems were never solved. Will MAS really recover if all of its assets are sold to get cash?

What can MAS do to deal with its problems?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: Generally, MAS poor performance is due to its wrong business plan and the loss of flight MH370 demoralized the staff and MAS has to handle this. How to do it? MAS must change its business plan. What’s wrong with the plan? The thing that is wrong with the plan is the choice of its routes which it has been plying for the past 15 years.

Those routes are now overcrowded with all the low cost carriers. The market now wants to fly domestic and regional and 80 per cent of air travelers want to fly budget. Only the rich and the businessmen fly full service. So MAS has to do something to capture that 80 per cent market. It has to reshuffle and realign its aircraft fleet. Utilizing Firefly as the main carrier for domestic and regional. The rest, let MAS handle.

And take a second look on the use of the A380. Does MAS really need six of the super-huge aircraft. No need to file for bankruptcy. Don’t be ridiculous.

MAS – from premium to low cost?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: No. MAS has to branch out into two business divisions. First for domestic and regional it has to be budget while international and long haul it has to be full service. However, MAS also has to be wary of its competitors. What’s important is that it has to control cost effectively in both low cost and full service.

I am saying this because I read in the papers that the ASK cost is 22.05 cent  and revenue is 17.02 cent. So every ASK is already registering losses.  We have to analyze this because other wise it will be a perennial loss. Today MAS is bleeding RM4 million a day,  RM2 million pay the interests, total debts has already reached RM11 billion, operational cost RM2 million a day. If it were another business, they would have closed shop already.

The government and the private sector must help MAS, trim liability and devise a new business plan. If these two plans are implemented, insyaAllah (God willing) MAS will turn around.

So the government must not shirk away from its responsibility?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: No it cannot because MAS is the National Carrier. What does the National Carrier mean? National Carrier is the global representative of the country and the people both in the skies and on the ground. The government I believe is not letting go. Just fed up maybe. It has done so much but it has come to this.

If that is the case, then how can we overcome MAS problems?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: The Prime Minister has to take a look at this problem. Khazanah Nasional Berhad (Khazanah) is just the strategic equity holder. It is the government which is the policymaker. I am the one who started MAS under the directive of the government to ensure MAS is the flag carrier.

If the government wants to maintain as the national carrier, the government has to continue to invest in MAS. But if the government has no money or is fed up, the government can work with a local company on condition that the company preserve MAS with the national carrier status. The firm must work together with the government.

Are there any companies out there willing to develop the business model?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: There are companies but while it controls MAS it must also obey the government at the same time. Lets say the company wants to  revamp the sterwards and the stewardess attire, the government can intervene if it finds the attire not suitable as MAS represents Malaysia.

It is not easy to solve MAS problems but it can be done. MAS image must be defended and we have done it before. MAS biggest problem is its huge debt and it has to be restructured as no company would want to take over a company which registers losses of RM4 million a day. If MAS is restructured, even though it still has a lot of liabilities, it can still register profit.

What if MAS is declared bankrupt like Japan Airline?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: Japan carries a different set of laws and they carry it out drastically such as laying off thousands of workers. In MAS we have to be  careful as it is said that MAS is overstaffed. Is this so? I’m saying this because there are many who complaint that MAS has few cabin staffs, engineers to the extent it has to cancel flights.

Maybe in some departments there are a surplus of workers but we have to look at it in totality. We can’t lay off 5,000 workers out of the 20,000 employees which MAS has. It does not have to lay a single worker if it is restructured properly. But we have to take a look  at the salaries of some of the management team of which I was told touch more than RM100,000 a month.

Why must they be paid such a huge amount at a time when MAS is in the red and why do you axe workers with low salaries? I question how the board of directors can approve such a huge salary. How did it come to this?

Note:  In MAS 2011 Annual report, two executive directors salaries and benefits cost MAS RM3,775,000.00 a year.  This note is from yours truly Sir Wee Choo Keong.

Have you ever written to the Prime Minister to discuss over MAS?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: I did write to the PM when MAS wanted to merge with AirAsia of which I was against. Other than that, I’ve never written to the PM on other issues. I don’t like to be a busybody but I’m telling you because you ask. I read in the papers that an individual suggested that MAS be shut down and start anew. To me that person knows nothing and is talking nonsense. I question why MAS use the A380 which is hardly utilised but cost millions to operate.

Why do we need the six air-crafts? That is one out of a thousand and one issues plaguing MAS. MAS also wants to sell the MRO and the person who proposed it does not know anything about the aviation industry. Engineering plays a huge part in the MAS makeup and plays a vital role in safety, efficiency, integrity and operations.

MAS has to fully control that business and if properly anaged can become an income earner. During my time, MAS maintains and services aircrafts from the US, Australia and Canada. MAS made money out of this division. So why do you want to hive off this division to another company and then buy back the service from the very same firm? MAS will bleed even more just like the catering business.  Although MAS has a 30 percent stake, it has to pay a high price for the food. MAS can sell a small stake but make sure it still controls MRO. Don’t sell the entire stake.

Ibrahim

Note: When Tan Seri Md Nor Yusuf was the CEO of MAS, MAS sold 70% of its equity in MAS Catering Sdn Bhd to the company controlled by Datuk Hj Ibrahim Ahmad Badawi. On the same day, MAS sign a back to back catering agreement with MAS Catering Sdn Bhd for 25 years worth RM6.25 billion.  It was a lope sided agreement.  Subsequently, the name of MAS Catering Sdn Bhd was changed to LSG Skychef Brahim’s Sdn Bhd.  MAS catering bill comes to about RM250 million yearly.  

The sale of the equity MAS Catering Sdn Bhd was done during the famous “Widespread Assets Un-Bundling” a.k.a WAU, the brainchild of BinaFikir Sdn Bhd, whose founders were Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar, the Managing Director of Khaznah and En Mohamed Rashdan Yusuf aka Danny. By the way, En Mohamed Rashdan Yusuf was the Deputy Group CEO of MAS and one of the architects of the infamous MAS-AirAsia share swap, which was a case of “Bina” first and “Fikir” later.  This is from yours truly Sir Wee Choo Keong.

During your time, MAS had a lot of assets but after 15 years all of it has been disposed. What is your comment?

MAS

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: I am saddened when all of the assets were sold off jsut like that. Extremely sad. MAS assets were sold as it does not have enough  capital, weak cashflow to sustain operations. Why? Because MAS is registering losses. The sale of MAS building was the saddest moment of them all ex-employees were all saddened by it and I was against it. The MAS training building in Subang was also sold and then rented back to MAS.

Its buildings in Jakarta, Singapore, New York, London, were all sold. All these assets are not easy to get back. When we bought MAS, it was not rich but prudent. MAS was not big at the time and the government was not rich. Selling all the assets is not good for MAS image.

What are your comments on MAS turnaround plan which has entered its third year?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: I really don’t know and I really don’t understand. I don’t see what MAS is doing. They made losses last year because they changed the business plan. MAS didnt reshuffle the routes but competed head on with  the low to even lower cost carriers. MAS forgets about its cost. MAS managed  to achieve 85 percent load factor but they made huge losses and didn’t get the yield.

During my time, 85 percent means huge profit. Previously, MAS still get profits at 70-75 percent load factor but now it still make losses at 85 percent load factor. The business model is wrong.

Even this business model is hard for MAS to implement?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: Maybe they were in a rush trying to prove something. Maybe they believed that that was the best approach and got a shock when they see the results. Maybe now they are devising a new business model. MAS has been in trial and error mode for so long. It has been in trouble since 1995 and the government started to intervene in 1998. Since then, management lineup changed six or seven times but still there is not turnaround but instead it is headed for destruction.

The MAS Employees Union wants MAS to be led by an insider and not an outsider. Do you agree Tan Sri?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: I agree but the person has to have leadership skills. MAS has a lot of talent who have served tens of years and there must be a capable leader. If there is none, you can take outsider but he must be loyal and understand MAS. MAS is a business which is laden with legal issues and you have to understand the international environment and the routes inside out.

The aviation industry business is so complex and its not just about competition. As an example, MAS right to fly to London, you must have a prior agreement. Must understand fully negotiations with Britain and know what we want. At present, MAS A380 cannot fly to Australia but AirAsiaX can fly there. Is the government involved in negotiations? MAS should give advice to the government.

Note:  The government has reserved an additional KL/Sydney route for MAS to fly with its A380 but En Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, the Group CEO of MAS,  gave it to AirAsia X.  This note is from yours truly.

Is the government being fed with the wrong information on MAS routes?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: I believe there is nobody at MAS giving advice to the government. Maybe when other airliners ask for the routes, the government gives the go ahead. Things have changed nowadays. Previously, the government would always refer to MAS for advice whenever they want to do anything in the aviation industry. When the government inquires, MAS has to back it up with facts if it does not agree.

If the government still wants to do it, there has to be discussions. For the past 10 years, MAS was never included in negotiations. When Malindo Airways was launched, MAS was in the dark until Malindo Airways started operations. MAS would have prepared itself if it was notified earlier. Its like in a war, MAS cannot just sit and watch. It has to get ready. MAS is a national carrier and uses the rakyat’s money so the government has to give MAS priority by informing the company.

Previously, MAS had tagged along and advised the government on traffic right negotiations and what inputs are needed in the agreement.

Why is MAS being sidelined now?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: Maybe the government has no confidence with MAS or its board of directors and the management do not dare to raise these sort of issues with the government. MAS was left own its own and the carrier in turn also kept quiet. When other people punch you, MAS just remained silent when it should have informed the government. I don’t discount the fact that the MAS management 15 years ago don’t understand the aviation industry. That is why it has come to this.

So how can MAS rise again?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: MAS has to find the right candidate to steer it ahead, focus on the liability and change the business model. That’s all.

Has the MAS management come to see you to discuss over MAS?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMANNo never. Maybe they know that I’m outspoken and I’m honest when it comes to MAS. If they come and see me I will tell them that they are useless. So why  would they come to see me and get scolded. I want to see MAS fly again and I’m angry with people who wants to declare MAS bankrupt.

They don’t know that MAS in the 1980s flew to San Francisco and Hawaii because the Americans thought that Malaysia is part of Congo. They don’t know that Malaysians can pilot planes and that was why I negotiated for the American traffic right which was not easy to get as we had to compete with Taiwan and Tokyo.

How do you feel seeing that the MAS you nurtured crumbling today?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: I’m very sad especially for staffs who are still in contact with me. They always talk about MAS including the retirees.

If you were asked to help turnaround MAS, would you want to?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: I’m honored to help but not work with MAS. I just want to do national service and two years is enough to turn it around. Honestly, I feel sad and sorry for MAS.

Why don’t you inform the Prime Minister directly?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: I’m also busy as a practicing lawyer and am always at the courts but I always follow the developments at MAS but will allocate the time if the government wants me.

Given the chance to meet the Prime Minister, what would you tell him?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN:  I just want to ask that MAS be given the right in the aviation industry policy. MAS is the national carrier and should not be sidelined in favour of other airliners. When  AirAsia and AirAsiaX were formed, MAS was in the dark and its routes was taken away.

Note:  During the Badawi’s Administration, 96 profitable routes of MAS were taken from MAS and given on a silver platter to AirAsia. Further, at that material time MAS had to abandon its Super Saver Promotion because the Badawi’s Administration prohibited MAS from selling its fares below certain level.  It was a case of MAS was asked to go into the boxing ring to fight with with its hands and legs tied. This note is from yours truly Sir Wee Choo Keong.

Personally, do you think there are invisible hands at work behind the scenes plotting the downfall of MAS?

TAN SRI ABDUL AZIZ ABDUL RAHMAN: I can’t say for sure but there is a possibility. I’m also puzzled because those days, MAS will always know every aviation policy.  Nowadays, nobody wants to hear MAS voice. Please don’t do that.

Malaysiaairlinesfamilies added “The morale of the story is DO NOT TAKE BACK IDRIS JALA who sells ROTI JALA best!”  The second morale story is the Prime Minister of Malaysia must walk his talk putting his rakyat first by removing all the moles inside MAS in order to re-shape it or revamp the whole organization to prevent a second phase of sabotage by these trios – Ahmad Jauhari, Azhari Dahlan and Zahrah the fatty boom boom!

Why the rakyat in Selangor state are so angry with the Bee End Party?  It is because Tun Mahathir is the advisor for AirAsia and Rafidah the busuk is the shareholders of AirAsia and in collaboration with Tony the Pariah – the low caste seed; combined to destroy MAS from inside out with the help from Tun Bodowi.

How the Bee End can survive in the next election if these prominent figures keep playing politics manipulating MAS? Bee End members also now converting to End Bee newbies members because they hold grudge against Tun Maha-thir and his gang.

Friendly advice for Tun Mahathir that he should leave MAS alone by keeping his mouth restricted to his own personal favorite views.  Stop interfering in the business if you are not asked for.

Mr. Prime Minister must listen to Tan Sri Abdul Aziz’s statement if the Prime Minister of Malaysia has the heart to walk his talking prioritizing the people of Malaysia.  The Prime Minister must also let Tan Sri Abdul Aziz to lead MAS to a greater height and prohibit all the politicians from poking their noses into MAS’s pockets.  However, the Prime Minister could appoint Tan Sri Abdul Aziz as advisor to MAS and mandated only a couple of his ministers in the Prime Minister’s department to oversee the necessary arrangement assisting Tan Sri Abdul Aziz.

Whilst the government is contemplating the next move; we have resources confirming that Mr. Lipas man has initiated his attempt to meet with Tan Sri Abdul Aziz to garner his huge support for NUFAM to make ways into getting contracts with MAS under the pretext of representing MAS crew.

Well…well…well..Mr. Lipas man is such a desperado.  We’ll see if Mr. Lipas man could survive his next election in NUFAM.

The Con Jobs by AirAsia’s Tony Fernandez to steal MAS MRO!


AirAsia is not going to stop cheating its new customers because it has been the Low Cost Carrier’s policy aiming at cheating for surviving from the pugnacious competitions.  As times goes by; the policy became the concept for its natural survivability.

To survive in this challenging yet pugnacious transport industry; Tony Fernandez has resorted to stealing companies for expanding into his collapsing empires before his life ends after he contracted incurable diseases. For the public’s record; Tony’s life has been dependable on Ketamine pills and other supporting drugs to prolonging his livelihood.

Now that Everyone Knows Tony is dying with his empires being left without a caliber person managing it; who do we think the best suited candidate that will take over him? Ahhhh…perhaps Lim Guan Eng would do the honor!

Among all the politicians in Malaysia; only one stood up for Tony of AirAsia pushing the Government to sell MAS to AirAsia and here is the link of the clue – Seek help from AirAsia on saving MAS Dap tells Putrajaya.

Now we all know how did the share swap between MAS and AirAsia take place exactly on time in 2011 which was prepping for the lost of Bee End Party in PRU13. Unfortunately, the people of Malaysia ain’t that dumber than Lim Wants End.

So exactly how did Tony steal the company that is strengthening MAS in the past decades? For a start; he pays off the clueless CEO a lump sum of cash to recruit the CEO and his gang. The job function of that paid clueless CEO by AirAsia is to find way to get MAS MRO landed into AirAsia’s listing property before MAS CEO contract ends.

In the morning of 28th May 2012 as is in scheduled; the paid clueless CEO of MAS will propose to MAS board of directors to sell off its main core Engineering division to increase the profit for restructuring MAS from its recent first quarter losses. The CEO will make the recommendation and propose to the board to sell MAS MRO and the current CEO of MRO Azhari Dahlan as in package to a company that Tony Fernandez has 35% shares in it.

Before the board of directors make any further decisions; they should know that despite contract between MAS and AirAsia ended in February 2014; Azhari Dahlan has secretly allocated a hangar for discreetly repairing AirAsia’s aircrafts without billing AirAsia a cent.

During the secret repair of AirAsia’s aircrafts at MAS MRO area; these events were highlighted by the famous blogger “Sir” Wee Choo Keong which he wrote Mysterious Fire in MAS MRO workshop BMH192 turned back caused by Carbon Brakes and Firefly turned back.

For the public record; Carbon brakes offer a significant weight savings compared to steel brakes. This translates into a lighter airplane, which directly contributes to decreased fuel consumption and associated reductions in engine emissions.

These cost considerations often resulted in the use of steel brakes on smaller, short-haul commercial airplanes (B737-800) and carbon brakes on larger, long-haul (B777-200) commercial airplanes. In the past, the higher cost of carbon brakes could more easily be justified for larger airplanes because of the cost savings associated with reduced weight and longer service life.

So who asked Azhari Dahlan to change the steel brakes with carbon brakes suitable for a smaller short-haul aircraft that had caused the air turned back of MH192?

Is this not crystal clear of the surfacing evidence that sabotaging act carried out by Azhari Dahlan or AirAsia have become eminent?

A special message for MAS board of director; in the afternoon of 28th May 2014 or early; the clueless CEO will endorse officially and handle over MAS MRO to Tony Fernandez’s proxy as the buyer! If this transfer of ownership is validated; MAS will lose out in billion of revenues and cost for maintaining and repairing MAS aircraft will hike up instantly.

In planning a restructure for the National Carrier; there shall be a change of new Top Management urgently to eradicate the presence of sabotaging acts internally and removing the moles of AirAsia vizly Azahari Dahlan the average qualified CEO whose records showed lacks of aviation knowledge and imminent saboteurs complement AND most importantly that Zahrah Zaid the Tobacco Evil Madam who claims she is untouchable because she is protected by someone from the Ministry of Human Resource as the most certifiable Human Cruelty Director of the century”.

Next episode; we shall cover on the topic on how the clueless CEO crashed MAS into loss-making airline of the year! Stay tuned for eliciting yet-unreported news!

About Nufam’s stupidity – Episode 2


What does NUFAM stand for? Literally; it is an acronym for Nuclear Fire Planning and Assessment Model. However; NUFAM is also known as THE trade fair for commercial vehicles in southern Germany.

In Malaysia; NUFAM is a Flight Attendant Union for rude; disrespectful; frustrated and disgruntled workers and to be exact it is a National Union for Frustrated Attendant Malaysia. It’s website at http://www.nufam.net cannot be found – When a registered trade union’s website has gone kaput – it’s a sign that it has lost its interest in what it really stand in for.

In the last few days; the Malaysian local dailies were busy issuing statements produced by a registered trade union for the disgruntled employees of Malaysia Airlines on threatening to stage a walk-out protest – read here – Nufam threatens to walk out next month.

An employee’s threatening behavior can be no more than a way for an employee to blow off steam or it can lead to violent episodes. MAS management should evaluate an employee who threatens the airline’s CEO and take action based on the seriousness of the situation. Employees who make detailed and specific threats may be closer to violent action than those who make vague threats.

The Union for frustrated flight attendants in that statement against Malaysia Airlines had threatened to stage a massive staff walk out if Malaysia Airlines failed to withdraw the suspension from flying duty on its President – Ismail a.k.a. Mr. Lipas Man and accord immediate recognition to Nufam as the bargaining body for its cabin crew.

AshMaxwell3

This crazy yet stupid Nufam Union also claimed there will be approximately 1000 cabin crew currently working for Malaysia Airlines will stage the walk-out by next month if the suspension of Nufam President – Mr. Lipas Man is not withdrawn.

This public humiliation against MAS management by MAS disgruntled employees leaves a lasting impression on MAS customers and can really kill workplace morale.

Malaysia Airlines has 3,800 strength for cabin crew of which 90% of the strength will always be away for flying duties leaving the remaining 10% will be on the ground for days off as scheduled. Contrary to Nufam’s threat against Malaysia Airlines; there can only be a total of 380 cabin crew on the ground to fully backed Nufam President on the day for walk-out.

Given the fact that Malaysia Airlines employed 95% locals where almost 100% of locals are committed to paying monthly subscription credit card bills; hire-purchase scheme and mortgages; we doubt these cabin crew will take the risk to stage a walk-out for Mr. Lipas Man.

We believe those cabin crew will not stage a walk-out for Nufam President after he humiliated a reputable airline’s CEO. We figure the number as predicted by Nufam could be wrong. Perhaps Nufam meant 1000 cabin crew minus last two digit of zeros which is only 10 cabin crew as in the picture above.

Out of 10 cabin crew; we figure probably only 5 stupid cabin crew would stage the walk-out with Mr. Lipas Man if only Tony Fernandez in AirAsia is willing to take them all. Walking out of a secured employment or opting an instant resignation is truly impulsive for youngsters.

However, if applying with logic we believe no one would ever risk a decent job to strike against the employer for others. Nufam must stop bull-shitting to the public and making threats against your own employer.

The New World Order on Privatization – Part 2


The term “privatization” describes a shift in the ownership of assets or the provision of services from the government or public sector to the private sector. The scope of privatization, however, varies greatly in different parts of the world. In the former Soviet bloc countries of Eastern Europe, privatization means changing the ownership and control of all major industries and utilities from the national government to the private sector.

As the privatization trend gains momentum in the new world; has come to encompass a variety of economic and political changes including the transfer of assets, services, and responsibilities from the state to the private sector; a lessening in the regulatory powers of government; and an increase in the individual’s responsibility in meeting his or her own needs. Regardless of definition, privatization is driven by both specific public policy decisions and general socioeconomic trends.

Forms of Privatization

  • Contracting Out or Outsourcing is the first and probably the most prevalent which can be described as public sector choice and public sector financing, with private sector production of the selected service. Under contracting out, the citizenry makes elected officials aware of a collective needs. The government is also responsible for financing these respective services—generally through its taxing powers. Hence, the government finances the service while the private sector provides it. The government determines the service level and pays the amount specified in the contract, but leaves production decisions to the private contractor. However, if this does happens to the National Carrier; Malaysia Airlines – The government workers who previously performed the job may undergo “employee dislocation”—a polite term for layoffs, transfers to less desirable positions, etc.
  • Franchising is another form of privatization similar to a monopoly privilege awarded to a private firm that provides the service but with the price of the service being regulated and determined by the state. Most utilities, such as gas, electricity, and telephone service, are provided under the franchise form of privatization. A relatively recent service, cable TV, is also generally awarded as a monopoly privilege. Another important distinction of monopoly franchising is that the consumer makes direct payments to the provider for the service.
  • User Fees is a variation on franchising and contracting out fees. Under this system of privatization, the consumer pays a set fee to cover all or part of the service costs. A municipality may, for instance, charge a set fee per household for trash collection rather than pay for that service out of a general tax pool.
  • Load-shedding is the last form of privatization whereby the government steps aside entirely. The consumer is responsible for deciding whether or not to make use of the service, the selection of the provider, and all payments for the service.

The effects on Privatization will lead to Employee Layoffs and Retrenchment

Arguments for Privatization – the proponents of privatization argue that government providers have no real incentive to hold down costs or to provide quality service.

Private firms, on the other hand, are motivated by a profit motive that depends on holding costs down. The lower the cost incurred by the firm in satisfying the contract, the greater the realized profit.

Private providers are also motivated by competition from other potential service providers. Competition between potential private suppliers to win a contract generally results in the lowest cost to the government and the taxpayer for the specified level of service.

It was well-argued that the “Competitive markets are rooted in private property, and there is no way to stimulate competitive conditions under conditions of government financing or government production”.

However, politically the most difficult and feared impact of privatization is employee layoffs. The fear is justified because many public enterprises are greatly overstaffed, as they are often used as instruments of job creation.

Privatization typically is associated with reduction and reorganization of the labor force, either in preparation for privatization or soon afterwards. It had been revealed that a universal concern in privatization process is the effect it has on labor.

Many observers fear that privatization will cause major job losses as new owners of privatized firms shed excess labor to improve efficiency and as divesting governments cut the workforce to prepare for privatization.

Fearing unemployment and the loss of benefits, labor unions and state enterprise workers are often among the most vocal and organized opponents of privatization, taking actions to deal or block reform. It was reported that in most Eastern European countries privatization accompanied by redundancies and the introduction of hard budget constraints on enterprises has resulted in large-scale job losses. This has created a pool of unemployed workers, which often cannot be absorbed by other privatized firms or new firms.

The expressed by quoting empirical examples, that depending on the results of the voluntary departure program, redundant staff may still need to be involuntarily laid off. Though, politically the most difficult of all restructuring options, retrenchment of workers who did not accept the voluntary program have been sometimes necessary in the last phase of the restructuring.

In Argentina railways the last 5,000-6,000 workers who did not accept voluntary retirement were declared redundant on the basis of performance and laid off. About 3,000 additional workers were sent home with 50 percent of their salaries.

In Brazil more than 14,500 of the 18,000 redundant railway employees were terminated by December 1996 with a large number opting for early retirement benefits. Private operators of three recently introduced systems have further deepened the staff retrenchment program initiated by the railways company, cutting as much as half the labor force they received with the concession.

In Brazil railways, redundant staff was given the choice of voluntary separation. On average, the scheme, however, are laid off with legal entitlements plus a separation package equivalent to 80 percent of the incentive offered under the voluntary program. The railway also agreed to pay an involuntary separation grant to remaining redundant staff that was not hired by the concessionaire, up to a maximum number of staff specified in the bidding documents.

Compensation packages for layoffs beyond the specified number were the concessionaire’s responsibility. As a result of this approach most of the 16,000 or so redundant workers took up the incentives and left through the voluntary program.

In Bangladesh more than 22,000 workers in the state’s jute corporation were retrenched between 1990 and 1993 as part of the restructuring and privatization program; further reductions are required for the privatization or closure of the remaining mills.

In Mexico a recent study of 218 privatized firms across a range of sectors found that the firms had reduced the number of white- and blue-collar employees by nearly half in the four years before sale. In some companies the reductions were significantly higher.

Many asserted that commonly accepted trade-offs that occur throughout the privatization process typically create an imbalance of accrued benefits to various segments of the workforce and members of the community in general.

There is concern that privatization negatively impacts the most vulnerable segments of the workforce. As illustrated; the privatization of a water system in Bolivia and an energy system in Thailand increased unemployment and decreased consumer welfare in both countries.

Therefore it was asserted that the greatest opposition to privatizing a firm usually comes from the firm’s own employees, who are fearful of wage cuts and job losses.

The other argument – Private firms may also be more innovative, using different approaches to providing a service. Government, by contrast, tends to stick with known approaches since changes often create problems, especially with an entrenched bureaucracy or a strident municipal bond.

Private firms may also use earnings to finance research or to purchase capital equipment relating directly to the service, while governments may not be able or willing to allocate revenue in the same manner given the many competing demands for tax dollars.

Another contributing factor to this cost disparity is the general overall efficiency of the private sector. The private sector has a strong incentive to operate efficiently.

Private firms that spending more money and employing more people to do the same amount of work will have lower profit margins and decreased profits. In the long run they will no longer be able to compete in a market economy.

The disciplining effect of competition, however, does not affect the public sector. Government agencies generally operate in a non-competitive environment and therefore can charge more for their services and be less concerned with consumer satisfaction.

Government services that are provided in a non-competitive market also deny the consumer comparability. The consumer or taxpayer has no real way of evaluating the price of a government service. This tends to make government less responsive to consumer needs.

The private sector generally offers the consumer a higher quality of service while keeping costs under control.

Malaysiaairlinesfamilies commented the above privatization argument does not prove the trend of privatization will guarantee an increase in efficiency and productivity as the case proven by AirAsia – the first private-owned airlines in Malaysia by Tony Fernandez.

In fact, Tony Fernandez proves that privatization on airlines business is provided with more rooms for exploiting the labor force. It is well-known that AirAsia; a private-owned airlines is forever struggling to uphold its safety performance and barely surviving from the market competition.

Malaysia Airlines; however is state-government owned airlines has established a proven record of its safety performance as compared to a private-owned airlines – AirAsia.

Simply put; privatization is politically a game-changer  and it has been advancing by the political party to restructure a monopoly system for a new regime to rule over. Ultimately, privatization is a political process.

Because the burden of privatization will fall most heavily on the public workforce and their jobs and income are at risk. Public employees and their unions are strongly opposing privatization.

It is because the government almost always operates as a monopoly provider, the decision to privatize usually means de-monopolization, even if not always robust, free-market competition.

Regardless of the mode of privatization, the government could have improvised the common motivation for engaging in all four types of privatization to substitute more efficient business operations for what are seen as less efficient, bureaucratic and often politicized operations in the public sector. Such way, the fear of massive job losses could be lessening and monitored.

The key difference of Privatization is the substitution of COMPETITION for MONOPOLY.
