3. All PMs were inperfect albeit certain degree of difference
4. However, the 1st to 4th PM admittedly lived up to their standing as Presidents of Umno and Perikatan/BN, leaders of the muslim malays and harmonious malaysians
5. When 5th PM took office, whilst maintaining the momentum be it policy or approach, he saw no rush in executing the established agenda. Instead, he expounded his hadharical approach, put his administration in auto mode, and fell into deep slumber without much problem. This has resulted in him given rude awakening only to find himself being shown the exit door.
6. All hopes were pinned onto 6th PM. With much regret, instead of making corrections on the wrong tracks left behind by 5th PM, he compounded the mistakes by abolishing ISA and since then irresponsible rakyat came out with insults to the malays and the muslims, unprecedented before this.
7. Not only ISA was abolished, he even promised to repeal the Sedition Act only to be met with strong resistence and polemic ensued by umno veterans, ex chief judge, ex kpn and the likes. Feeling the heat, he decided to withdraw but the critics are still cynical as whether he might took it up again when the best opportunity arises in the near future.
8. Still being critically examined and spoken are the 1MDB and BRIM payout issues. Whilst najib and his men's response on 1MDB is still hazy with unanswered questions, the BRIM payouts are carried without any feeling of guilt and responsibility albeit use of tax payers money and in the light of decline in revenue due to lower crude price.
In short, i would still agree that najib is no better if not worse than paklah. - Anonymous
Do read the more-than-a-year-old posting for a better understanding of the issue at hand. I read it again following an email alert of the above comment.
Lately a few concerned friends have been warning and advising me against presenting unvarnished comments against the leadership of Prime Minister Najib Razak. A close acquaintance of the man, a businessman, said 'you're just lucky that the ISA has been abolished' while another retired media personality told me with his eyes wide open at a tea-stall that 'the boss said you're vicious and he is very angry at you'.
Don't know whether to feel honoured or to go into hiding due to such messages and other hidden threats that comes in many forms and phrases. I believe the truth must be told, especially when its in the best interest of my country. Just look at the unfolding 1MDB scandal. It has now been proven beyond any doubt that 1MDB is in trouble. Our nation could slide into serious financial trouble due to this scandal. Well, let the unfolding saga of the debt ridden fund tell the hidden tales and expose those criminals whom, I strongly believe, have siphoned billions of ringgit out for them.
More than a year ago I still harboured hopes that the Prime Minister would take note of the criticisms and mend his ways. That hope has now faded away, completely. It has been six years or so since Najib took office as the 6th PM of Malaysia. Najib appears worse than any other Prime Minister this blessed nation has had. If Najib is allowed to remain in the PM's seat and nothing is done about the deteriorating state of race relations, religious extremism and abuse of power, this nation will go down the drain in less than a decade.
This may sound vicious to some or bitter to others but Najib Razak is simply no longer fit to be Prime Minister of Malaysia. Najib Razak has lost the plot and he appears increasingly oblivious to the happenings in our society. With the 1MDB scandal hanging like the proverbial sword of Damocles over his head plus the sudden resurrection of the ghost of Altantuya. With an exUTK policeman's son threatening to 'reveal all that would bring down the Malaysian Government' from Australia while his father continues to give statements to Australian intelligence agencies in detention.
With the PM increasingly appearing like a Western apologist who is more concerned about scandalous rating agencies than hard truths on the ground. When certain personal extravagances appear worse than the Wolf of Wall Street storyline, something is certainly wrong. It cannot be accepted when the abuse is carried out with absolute impunity. This country and the ruling government led by Barisan Nasional have never circled around one individual and his/her family. As an individual Najib Razak cannot be more important than this country and her people. Those in Umno who are still able to use their grey matter must repent and realign their loyalty to this blessed nation and not blindly support someone who appears lost in his own web. Bertaubat dan kembalilah ke pangkal jalan sebelum kita kehilangan segalanya. Menyerang mereka yang mengkritik dan percubaan memperbodohkan rakyat dengan menyalahgunakan media arus perdana tidak mungkin dapat bertahan lama. Rakyat lebih bijak sekarang. Jika tak percaya sila teruskan strategi serangan berasaskan pembohongan dan kita akan sama-sama lihat kesudahannya. Pemimpin Umno, bermula dari tahap tertinggi hingga ke Ketua Bahagian dan barisan pelapis harus berhenti sejenak berfikir tentang kemelut dan krisis dalaman masakini. Apakah punca segalanya? Apakah Umno dan BN akan terkubur jika Najib Razak ditamatkan perkhidmatan sebagai presiden dan pengerusi atau apakah situasi sebenar adalah sebaliknya? Walaupun tangan mungkin telah menerima dan terus menerima habuan yang dihulur hati jangan dibiarkan buta. Jika hati dibiarkan buta, Umno dan BN tidak akan selamat. We can't afford to have a leader who COULD possibly be threatened or held at ransom for any given reason or reasons. (This is not an accusation, merely stating observation partly based on widespread perception) Malaysia needs a leader who should be more focused in serving us and leading this nation to greater heights. We used to be more united and flew high on the global scene. Now we appear to be often floated for the wrong reasons. Abolishing the ISA is one big blunder for which we are paying for very dearly now. Lack of leadership is simply compounding the problem while increasing the price we pay. Extremists who dared not lift their heads since Malaya came into being in1957, and even during the aftermath of those dark days in 1969, are now poisoning the society from every possible angle. Why is it that they only come into being in recent years? Lack of a strong, sensible leadership appears like the root cause of this malaise. Engineered NGOs and parrots cannot possibly convince the people or hold you up if there is no substance. Remember, those 'below the surface' operatives would only remain relevant as long as you're in one problem or another. When you're constantly in trouble their 'direct-nego' deals would constantly expand in value. Living in denial is an early sign of lunacy. This failure of not feeling or living in denial of the pulse could kill BN. Some have started believing that only a defeat in the next elections and only by losing the Federal Government to the Opposition would Umno and BN come to their senses. It is the injury the nation and society could suffer before the defeat that is worrying. There would be no use of a new Opposition-led government if our daily staple continues to be racial and religious loaded politics of hatred. We cannot possibly head anywhere but down if we are constantly at each others throats. Even an Opposition-led government can't move ahead if, by then, we are a bankrupt nation with debts running into hundreds of billions. 1MDB itself has for now accumulated debts of about 40billion, if not more. The nation can't afford to be held back by a leader who is busy clearing his own personal mess while we slide towards the dungeon. Malaysia needs a new leader and in my opinion Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is more than qualified to shoulder this responsibility. I hope Muhyiddin the Deputy Prime Minister loves this nation, her people and the future generation enough to step up to the plate.
p/sThis is my view and there is nothing vicious about telling or writing about what I feel is the current state of affairs in my country. Dear Prime Minister, I'm truly sorry if this posting of mine offends you in any way or appears vicious. I'm just stating my opinion based on prolonged observation as a journalist with considerable exposure to current affairs and latest developments. I did the same during the final lap of the previous PM's tenure before you took the seat from him. I criticised Pak Lah and agreed that he should be replaced because of his lack of competence and the infamous Fourth Floor plus the abuses that came with them. We harboured high hopes on the new PM but you should know better of your own performance and failures by now. You should know better that there cannot be two sets of rules, one for Pak Lah and another for you. My advice - Don't overstay your welcome. Nothing personal and certainly not meant to appear vicious. Nothing but in the best interest of our beloved nation Malaysia and her colorful people.
