By R.S.N. MURALI
KUALA TERENGGANU: Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said was in a jubilant mood Friday stressing that the Mercedes-Benz saga ended after the meeting with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi on Thursday, indicating that he had received the PM’s blessings to use the German-made vehicles as official cars.
Ahmad also met with Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at the same venue. "Yes, we (Abdullah and Najib) reached a consensus on the matter during the meeting at Putra World Trade Centre (on Thursday). The matter has been solved. I can't elaborate further," he said Friday after opening the Seri Kandi's Annual General Meeting at his official residence here.
Lima jam selepas itu....(macam cerita Melayu kat TV la pulak...)

Merc for visiting foreign dignitaries, says PM
By JANE RITIKOS
PUTRAJAYA: The Terengganu state government will have to abide by the Cabinet decision not to use its newly purchased Mercedes as the official cars for its executive councillors.
However, the 14 cars would instead be used for visiting foreign dignitaries and guests of the state.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said that while the state government was told to abide by the Cabinet’s earlier decision on the Mercedes E200 Kompressors, losses would be incurred if the cars that were already bought by the state government were to be sold off.
“Yesterday (Thursday) Najib and I in a meeting with the MB discussed the matter and we said that the important thing was that the Cabinet had decided the state government should not use the cars for its excos,” he said.
“I said use the Mercedes cars for guests who are visiting,” he added.
Earlier Friday, Ahmad said, "We (Abdullah and Najib) reached a consensus on the matter during the meeting at Putra World Trade Centre (on Thursday). The matter has been solved."
Kenapa ini semua terjadi...? Kesimpulan aku mudah saja...
1. Kelemahan pimpinan teratas...Pak Lah lemah mengendalikan anak buah...
2. Mat Said bukan pilihan Pak Lah...tetapi pilihan pihak Istana Terengganu...so...(tafsirkan sendiri ya...)
3. Mat Said mempunyai sesuatu di dalam pengetahuan beliau yang mampu membuatkan beliau berani bertindak menyalahi polisi Kabinet...kerana kalau Kabinet kacau tindakan dia beli Mercedes...akan keluar sesuatu yang tak patut orang ramai tahu...hehe...
Bak kata dialog P. Ramlee dalam Tiga Abdul :
Bapak di sana tu penyamun..abang-abang di sini tu penyangak...dah betul la tu, penyamun jual penyangak...
So...kita tengok la esok punya surat khabar apa nak kata pulak...bising-bising macam-macam...kita jugak yang sengsara...diorang mewah dan senang lenang....apa nak dikata...
