Who pays the British Advisor to the Prime Minister?

Putrajaya has never paid Paul Stadlen, minister says
KUALA LUMPUR, May 20 — The federal government has never paid former APCO Malaysia boss Paul Stadlen, Datuk Seri Dr Shahidan Kassim said.
In a written parliamentary reply to Sepang MP Mohamed Hanipa Maidin, the minister in the Prime Minister’s department did not confirm or deny Stadlen’s alleged role as a member of the Prime Minister’s department’s national communications team.
“Until now, the government has not made any payment of wages to Paul Stadlen,” Shahidan said.
Hanipa had asked the minister to state how much the government had paid the former APCO Malaysia boss, as well as a breakdown of the PM department’s list of official advisors and their fees.
In the reply, Shahidan said that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has four advisors — Datuk Seri Dr Abdullah Md Zin, Datuk Wira Mohd Johari Baharum, Tan Sri Dr Rais Yatim and Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil.
“The government only pays wages and allowances in accordance to each person based on their given expertise,” Shahidan added but did not elaborate further.
Opposition leaders have demanded Putrajaya to disclose the details of Stadlen reported employment with the Prime Minister’s Office.
In February, DAP’s Lim Kit Siang said he had submitted specific verbal questions to Najib, asking him to confirm an allegation made by the Sarawak Report website that Stadlen is allegedly being paid millions of ringgit for his communications policy. - MalayMailOnline

So the million dollar, or rather billion ringgit, question now is WHO paid the wages of the British Advisor for the Prime Minister? 

Datuk Seri Najib Razak has been doing a lot of things out from the ordinary, that includes the way he conducts vital Government business. 

1Malaysia Development Berhad - 1MDB - is a classic example of Najib's abnormal behaviour as head of our administration. 

The Deputy Prime Minister and the entire cabinet, except for the Finance Minister who is Najib himself, was kept in the dark of how a multi-billion ringgit Government business was being conducted. Nobody knew anything, or so they say, until 1MDB's bloated RM42 billion debt and scandalous dealing were made public by outsiders. What if the scandal was never exposed?

While the secrecy of 1MDB is no longer an issue as the scandal is now being scrutinised by many parties, including the Monetary Authority of Singapore, another of Najib's able minister has made another mind boggling declaration in Parliament.

Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim told the August House that -"Until now, the government has not made any payment of wages to Paul Stadlen" .

Does Shahidan's written reply mean that the Government owes Paul Stadlen million of ringgit in unpaid wages for his Public Affairs and Government Affairs Services, his role in the National Communications Team under the Prime Minister's Office and for other precious personal/professional services to the Prime Minister and/or the Government? 

Who paid for his services when his nose was everywhere during the MH370 and MH17 crisises. If not Putrajaya was it Washington, London or Almaty? 

I hope the Prime Minister's intelligent spokespersons don't insinuate that Paul Stadlen and his bunch of foreign assistants are paid by Najib's wealthy in-laws from Kazakhstan. Don't continue to behave as though we Malaysians are stupid. We can't allow outsiders to pay for the services some other foreigners provide for our Prime Minister.   

I wrote about this particular British Advisor for the Prime Minister in November 2014. The posting has since been hacked with pictures and documents removed but luckily the revealing text and links are still there. Some documents and pictures still appear in Din Turtle's blog HERE

So Mister Prime Minister, are your British Advisor's services fully sponsored by the British Government? Please tell us so we Malaysians, the once subjects of the great kingdom, could congratulate and thank the newly re-elected Prime Minister of Britain.

p/s Just received a rare business card of Tan Sri Lim Kok Wing who is now (according to the name card) is the Special Programme Coordinator of the Prime Minister. Don't ask me what kind of Special Programme as this is news to me too.
Don't worry, I won't ask who pays the creative Tan Sri's wages.

To sidetrack a bit, expect 2 resignations in the very near future.....the speaker first followed by the pm himself.

Read his reply to Tun. Something telling me that it was written by someone else as usual. Can the guy even string a proper sentence without the help of anybody? Our country is sliding....cukuplah Jib. Your father would cry if he is still alive. Probably first piece of advice is 'Divorce her!'

shahidan kassim is just a ball carrier. When he puts on a slightly large t shirt and a seluar trek, he looks like the village idiot. Based on current trend, when he said the government hadnt paid a single cent, we know he is lying and hiding behind some technicality. or could stadlen have been fully sponsored? People that know, know that these mat sallehs from the embassy and bigwigs live a double life. Was stadlen a trojan? I guess jibz didnt trust the malays much and would rather play russian roulette. What an idiot. Who knows how many OSA that may have been compromised due to jibz's selfish act.

In the end, it is the rakyat who pays, and this time we say NO MORE to Najib.
We don't want any more lies, half-truths, fudginess, elegant silences, empty promises of 5 year plans.
The emperor is now totally naked.

Dgn nama Allah swt, saya mohon darinya agar pm, semua menteri dan pengampu yg bersekongkol diberi balasan sehebatnya di bumi ini serta di akhirat ke atas segala kemungkaran, penyelewengan, penipuan, pengkhianatan dan kezaliman terhadap rakyat.

Amin ya Allah ya rabbal alamin

Najib Tak Faham said...

Najib Razak tidak ada hak dan sebab jadi Presiden UMNO dan pemimpin Melayu. Najib kekurang intelektuality, kurang pengetahuan kewangan dan tak sedar dia bodoh.
Sebab itu dia ditipu oleh orang Cina, India, Inggeris.
Najib buta politcal history.
Najib tak tahu penjajahan adalah kristianisasi oleh orang eropah.
Siapa yang menjajah tanah kita, membunuh orang Melayu dan merampas hasil tanah Melayu?
Orang inggeris yang didorong oleh kepercyaan kristus.
Asas penjajahan pun Najib tsk faham. Perjuangan sekular UMNO pun dia tak faham.

1. Sdr Apanama, apa nak susah? Just ask our ex-NSTP friends who are now serving the PM as media consultants and bloggers who pay them?

2. You and I know many are not paid by the government. They are not in the PSD's establishment.

3. Many people employed by the PM and many agencies he set up do not have establishment i.e they are not sanctioned by the PSD.

4. Somebody has to pay them. I don't believe they work for free.

5. As for LKW being appointed special programme coordinator, only this morning an Umno chap told me that the PM or someone influential in the PMO or over the PMO is not happy with the PMO's media operation.

He said that's why lately Rizal Mansor has emerged as spokesman for PMO.


Thank you.
