Quoteworthy – Indonesia Coordinating Minister for People’s Welfare, Agung Laksono

Via a news article on StraitsTimes.com:

 “Singapore shouldn’t be like children, in such a tizzy.” Said Indonesia Coordinating Minister for People’s Welfare Agung Laksono, commenting on the haze issue.

It is very hard to love thy neighbour with champions like this abang.

I did an online search on him. Other than being a minister, Laksono was a co-founder of Adam Air, a now defunct commercial airline, which was closed down after a series of accidents.

He is also a supporter of Iran’s nuclear program.

His credentials are pretty stellar indeed. When a person of such high moral standing scolds us, Singapore, we should be ashamed of ourselves for being so childish, constantly whining about a little bit of hazardous haze! Shame on us!

Fellow Singaporeans, if you are sorry for your childish behaviour and would like to offer the honourable Mr Laksono a sincere  apology, you can contact him at agung.laksono@menkokesra.go.id

Here is his office address, fax and telephone numbers via ASEAN website if you wish to write him a snail mail or visit him personally to apologise:

  1. “He told reporters that Singapore said nothing when there was fresh air, but complained about the occasional haze.”
    Can l kindly ask if you have a dutiful wife, but occasionally happily engage in some unfaithful act, a dirty fling. Will you complain about the occasional fling when your wife dutifully serves you fresh breakfast daily?

    I’m still a child, please answer me.

  2. Another idiotic from Indonesian Government. Me as an Indonesian feel very embarrassed by his childish comments. That is why, Indonesia hard to developed because of this kind of people.

  3. A country can have such a man as a minister ..really says something about the kind of standard that country possessed.

  4. If he’s on the take, must be paid quite a lot to say what he said.
    But then again, may be not since he really sounds like a genuine fucking idiot.

  5. Idiot mentality. It’s Indonesians’ misfortune to have ministers like him and Jero Wacik.
