Ahmad Maslan manufacturing lies Pees and cues:gimmickry lasts only so long
Zahid puts his own & Najib's neck on the line -why?
After being caught by surprise with the exposure of the letter he wrote to Deputy Director of the FBI Mr. Mark F. Giuliano, Dato’ Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has not been able to give a credible explanation to those who have been asking him about the letter and its content.
The best he could do was to explain to the cabinet and we all know that most of the ministers are ‘Cap Ayam” (the ubiquitous Hen brand)! Zahid could have told them any “cock and bull” story and they will simply nod their heads in agreement without understanding what has been going on!
Zahid boasted that he has the authority to write such letter. But of course he can write any letter as he wishes as the Home Minister, but everybody is asking about its content! Zahid did not make a mistake; he made a huge blunder in admitting that Phua who is a known gambling kingpin has helped the government, yes, the Government of Malaysia not in a one off incident but on numerous occasions!
Anyhow, if Zahid is of high stature and not just a big bully with a loud mouth, he should own up, be a man. He is only being timid by hiding behind the power and apparatus at his disposal.
Another thing to note is that Zahid has been willing to defend Phua in front of the cabinet and sidelined Najib. It sure speaks volume on the relationship between him and Phua.
Maybe Zahid is stuck with Phua and is willing to do anything for him, such that he is willing to embrace Phua and even kiss his shoes when Phua returns home to Malaysia. Phua, Zahid must really love you so much!
.To become a visionary leader PM Najib has to outgrowIt is as plain as daylight that Budget 2015 must be revised in the wake of plunging world oil prices, given that some 30% of government revenue comes from petroleum. In addition, it has been noted, the unprecedented ferocity of the year-end floods which will require a multi-billion ringgit reconstruction effort means that development expenditure must be reallocated to rehabilitate damaged infrastructure and restore normalcy to the victims’ lives and the economies of the affected regions.Last week, Prime Minister and Finance Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak indicated, not a day too soon, that an announcement about a possible restructuring of the budget to address these challenges would be made this week.
