How long, do you think, before we are rid of this irrelevant, expensive and certainly useless parasites call ROYALTY? Who now cares about them but themselves? There are indeed a relic of a time long gone by and by their own doing are no longer relevant to the Malaysia of today. How much does it cost us to maintain one Sultan? There is him, his wives, his children, his palaces, his staff, his cars, his brothers and sisters, his daily, weekly, monthly and yearly upkeep…and the list goes on. These Sultans costs us more than what they are worth!
And what are they worth? What do they do apart from sleep and eat, hand out honors that some people pay them to do so and whizz around here and there trailed by motorcycle outriders and their bodyguards and hangers on – all at our expense! No they are not worth anything – not even what they wear are paid by them. We pay for everything – the cars, the yachts, and even for the air crafts that they call their own.
And some of them are in business? Huh! What business? Getting timber concessions, state land and projects and tenders given to you by the state or BN government is not business – we call it living off the sweat and toil of the Rakyat. All these Sultans do is get the business opportunity and sell it lock stock and barrel to others – they take their commission and up front money and go spend some more. We see this in the University built in Pahang and that Hospital fiasco in Selangor.
And they do charity work! Ha ha ha….what charity work? Handing out some food parcels during floods? Hari Raya spending money for some orphans? Come on lah…get real! I have yet to see a single Sultan start a worthwhile foundation to do charitable work for under privileged and deserving children or individuals. Not a single Sultan! So much for doing charity work!
Are they are also the head of Islam in the states they reign in? What a laugh! Some of the Sultans should themselves be hauled up by the religious authorities for crimes against Islam - fornication outside marriage is a crime under Islam is it not? What about drinking liquor? Prohibited under Islam? And the list goes on....what a laugh! Like the BN government - harapkan pagar, pagar makan padi!
The time has long past for these Sultans to pack up and leave their palaces and start to earn their own living - just like the rest of us. And when I say the rest of us that does not include those thieving BN politicians! I say that these Sultans and all the baggage that they carry around with them should be told to vacate their palaces and start to earn their own keep.
No more Rolls - let them drive Protons.
No more motorcades let them wait at traffic lights as we do.
No more special wards at hospitals.
No more immunity from prosecution.
If they want to have more then one wife - they pay for it themselves - why should the Rakyat pay for them to fornicate?
And they can have as many children as they like just as long as we do not have to foot the bill for a life that we know will be wasted on wine, women and song.
And no more Sultans. The sooner the better! Daulat Tuanku!
