It's easier to say "This has nothing to do with us." than to admit that the government is at fault.
Yes, the collapsed bridge took away 3 lives has nothing to do with the government but it is the fault of the developer.
Yes, who is asking the 3 for the 1Malaysia camping event? The government is not organising these events.
Yes, the parents should be blamed that they allowing their kids even without knowing where they actually going. Or the teachers should be blamed for not telling the truth to parents on such event.
But who initiated the 1Malaysia camping event nationwide?
Who funded the construction of such camping sites?
Who approved the 1Malaysia Camping idea?

Muhyiddin admits Kampar bridge construction flawed
By Syed Jaymal Zahiid
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 11 - Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yasin (picture) admitted in Parliament today that the recent collapse of the hanging bridge in Kampar, Perak, which claimed the lives of three children, may have been caused by its flawed construction.
In his ministerial winding-up speech text on the 2010 Budget, Muhyiddin said the early findings of the Works Ministry’s probe into the tragedy indicated that the bridge’s structure was unstable.
He also revealed that the blueprint or plan of the bridge construction was incomplete, pointing towards negligence on the part of the developer.
“My ministry will provide the detailed report and is expected to be released the latest by the end of November,” said Muhyiddin.
Perak Pakatan Rakyat leaders had recently alleged the bridge was built without the necessary approval from the Land Office and Kampar Municipal Council.
The bridge was part of the general design of the 1 Malaysia Camp in Kampar. The 1 Malaysia camps have been set up throughout the country as part of the government’s efforts to promote the concept coined by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak.
The deputy prime minister said further that he has already instructed his officers to step up safety measures for the students to prevent similar incident from recurring.
On the accusation by PR leaders that the teachers of the students had failed to fulfill standard operating procedures (SOP), Muhyiddin denied and defended them, saying his probe had shown otherwise.
The opposition claimed that their investigation had shown that the teachers were not present to monitor the pupils when they were on the bridge, and negligence could have been one of the factors behind the tragedy.
“Our investigation showed that the teachers met with the SOP set by the ministry.when the tragedy occurred, the teachers did their best to save the pupils,” said Muhyiddin in his text speech.
Time constraint had disallowed the deputy prime minister to read out his reply to queries by opposition MPs on the matter. He said they will be given the written reply soon.
