Here’s one I missed on Wednesday, alerted by the good folks of a hip, indie bookshop, on Selangor Water Authority charging for RAINWATER!!!
According to a circular (reproduced at bottom) from the Selangor Water Authority (LUAS), factories and golf clubs will have to apply for a licence and then have to pay for rain water! And this is no joke either.
(…) The rain water collected in the ponds is used to water the greens and fairways, hence saving large amounts of water so that there is enough treated water for public use.
(…) Can you propose a levy for God-sent water? (source: Citizen Nades, Rent-Seeking from Rain, The Sun)
It’s not just about golf courses trying to save water. When Selangor factories, that harvest rainwater (so that more can be used by households) and attempt to save costs, begin paying for this extra levy, who do you think will end up paying for them?
Not those ‘No-need-to-change-lifestyle-Perth-Vegas-holidaying’ types, not those richie-rich boutique-shopping kind a la BN.
A commentator, ‘Ranjit Singh’, in a previous post quipped that BN = ‘Bad News’. There are banners appearing around town which equates BN with ‘Barang Naik’.
Stop the Rot. Vote for Change.
