All they are interested in is how to line their pockets, and that of their cronies.
The RM1.8 million Tourism Malaysia Facebook applications are no exception. Everyone who is semi-retarded knows that Facebook (bless Mark Zuckerberg's little black heart) is FREE.
The applications on that page were not complicated. After all, DAP did them without costing the taxpayer or even their members anything.
What bugs me is that they don't even make a serious attempt at hiding something like that. Either they don't care, or they think the average citizen (read: voter) is really stupid.
Take this minister's explanation on why it cost so much, for example:
"These cover creative works, concepts and ideas, design, flash programming and coding, testing and debugging, uploading and launching of application, system server development and maintenance, development of database from the contest, campaign management and monitoring as well as online advertisements and fan recruitment in Facebook and Google," the deputy minister said.
Would these applications really draw in the crowds to holiday in Malaysia?
I think the government's high-handed ways of treating its citizens would repel the average foreign holiday-maker far more than the Facebook application would attract them.
As usual, this government has got all its priorities wrong.
