KUALA LUMPUR: The Tourism Ministry is terminating its memorandum of understanding on tourism with opposition-led states with immediate effect.
"We will work together to develop tourism in any particular state," she said after chairing a meeting with industry players yesterday.
However, she gave an assurance that there would not be a total boycott on tourism in these states.
Azalina said that all the funds for tourism in these states would be directly channelled into the accounts of the state Tourism Action Councils.
"But with these five states, the tourism excos will no longer chair the council meetings. The funds which were channelled to the state financial officer will now be channelled through federal funds."
Wee said the budget of RM1 million for each state would remain the same but further allocation will depend on their activities.
I had half a mind to include Dr Victor Wee into the chamber, but with the recent directive on khalwat between muslims and non-muslims, I decided otherwise. Moreover the intensity of the punishment would be dissipated with two occupants....if you get my drift.....of the whiff......
She failed as Sports Minister when she started building castles of excellence in English clouds! And now this. Before she was recruited by Tun Mahatir (why and how, is still a mystery today) she was a lawyer and she was the lawyer who made a police report and the police raided the Instant Cafe Theatre, whilst the play was on. Surely, a sour puss she was.....she doesn't seem to enjoy seeing Malaysians laughing at themselves. Wasn't she the one who told Citizen Nades to shut up and challenge her during an elections?
Note to Nades: Come GE13 if you don't take up her challenge, I will. Twice she won uncontested. Both of us cannot be bought so darn easily, Comprende?
Aunty Rafidah is rocking in her chair and having a good rolicking laugh....I know it. Aunty is also sharpening her keris in preparation for the Assembly. Before any of you want to side the occupant of the chamber, visit Wikipedia for some revelations. My vote is on Macik Rafidah. Go aunty baby go!
