Immigration jocose!

Our immigration officers were battered and criticised by the Interpol and other foreign agencies when news about the two Iranians who used stolen passport made it through the checkpoint and boarded the missing MH370, made headlines worldwide.

We were accused of negligence. The opposition even single out Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi as not fit for the job, and that the immigration 'doors' and procedures at KLIA must undergo an overhaul!

But read this story.

If the Interpol and Tian Chua or Anwar or Kit Siang think our system really sucks, they better go 'overhaul' their heads!
A bald man was able to get through airport security by using his blonde girlfriend's passport. The security blunder occurred at an airport in Britain.
Neil Clulow, a 50-year-old barber, didn't realize that he had his girlfriend Karen Clift's document on him when he boarded the 7:30 a.m. flight as he got threw security with no problem. He was flying from Birmingham to Alicante airport for a three-night trip to Benidorm with his male friends of a 50th birthday party last month, the Mirror reports.
In addition to his bald head, Clulow has a goatee beard, but when he showed his passport to the Monarch Airlines' staff and passport control at Alicante, he got through with no problem. He didn't realize the mistake until he was comparing passport pictures with his friends. Clulow was shocked by the security blunder due to the recent events involving the missing Malaysia Airlines jet.
"I can't believe it, especially after the trouble with that missing jet (MH370)," Clulow said according to the Mirror.
Once he realized his mistake, he spent £70 for UPS to mail his real passport to Spain. However, the company accidentally mailed it to Berlin. Due to the mishap, he missed his March 19 flight home, but Monarch Airlines agreed to let him fly home for free the following day.
When he finally arrived back in the US, Clulow was questioned by two senior airline officials over the security breach. "They wanted to know what happened," he said.
"They asked if I would be willing to point out the woman who let me through because it was a serious breach of security. But I didn't want to do that to her so I refused. I've head nothing from them since.
Monarch Airlines is investigating the incident.
 They (the British immigration) were even worse, right?

Something fishy here...

Whether its true or not, a survey by the Malaysian Insider shows Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is the best Umno performer in Putrajaya.

Second is Sports and Youth Minister Khairy Jamaluddin followed by Defense Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein.

Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and 'Big Boss' Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak are fourth and fifth respectively.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's rating was good among the respondents with 42% saying that the Umno president had done an excellent job, while 39% gave him the thumbs down.
The survey also showed that Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi was considered by Malay respondents to be the top performing leader.
Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin was second, followed by Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein third.
Zahid was first choice for 15.2%, second choice for 8.1% and third choice for 5.2% of respondents.
Najib was in the fifth position, behind Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
Last week, a survey by Merdeka Center revealed that dissatisfaction among Malaysians with Najib increased from 40% in December last year to 44% in March. This came after Putrajaya faced heavy criticism over price hikes, among other issues.
The poll showed that Najib's approval ratings remained unchanged at 52% last month compared with last December.
In December, Najib's approval ratings slid to an all-time low of 52% following the series of painful measures to trim Malaysia's chronic budget deficit.
Only 1,005 respondents took part in the survey, and I doubt they speak for majority of Malaysians. Most of them (I also believed) are those close to TMI - radical and critical minds.

I don't really buy what the survey shows but I would like to question the motive and agenda behind it. A pitting, I suppose?

It reminds me of a survey by Merdeka Center on MH370, indicating the public outcry over 'Malaysia's incompetency in the search and rescue (SAR) operations'. It claimed the survey was for the period from 7 March to 20 March.

However, the 'temberang' and lies were easily detected - why did they conduct the survey on March 7 when the plane went missing on March 8?

Just like Merdeka Research, I'm beginning to smell fish in TMI survey!
