Heat is on:Tengku Adnan Mansor.his scam’sshadow’s creeping up around him

Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s explanation on the letter he wrote to the Federal Bureau of Investigation vouching for gambling kingpin Paul Phua has been accepted by the Cabinet. – The Malaysian Insider file pic, January 14, 2015.

The defeat of Mahinda Rajapaksa in the Sri Lankan presidential election does not automatically mean an end to the country’s political and economic problems but it has helped avert the disasters that surely lay ahead had the two-time president succeeded in winning a third term.The opposition he faced was dispirited and divided but smart politics, like guerilla warfare, is all about creating disruptions in the enemy camp. So imperious was Rajapaksa in his behaviour and so centralised was his exercise of power that the deadliest blow came from within and not without.Rajapaksa’s destructive majoritarianism was playing havoc with the country’s fragile national fabric, perverting its political economy, wrecking its civil liberties and distorting its foreign policy. What Sirisena, Chandrika and Ranil have managed to do along with smaller allies like the leftist Janata Vimukti Perumana and the Sinhala Buddhist Jathika Hela Urumaya is to stop any further damage from being done. They managed successfully to get the electorate to press the reset button. In doing so, they have created an opening for Sri Lanka to think anew about its political future.The vote was close — only four percentage points separate Sirisena and Rajapaksa — but the idea that the former won only because of minority support is incorrect. Rajapaksa polled well in Sinhala areas, trouncing his opponent in Hambantota, Matara, Ratnapura, Galle and Monaragala by big margins. However, Sirisena won a large number of Sinhala votes too and would not have hit 51% of the vote share but for that.Sinhala voters may have felt the constrictions of Rajapaksa’s authoritarianism in different ways but they were as affected by his misgovernance as the country’s Tamils and Muslims.
     Najib will use me as a political weapon against Mahathir during the forthcoming elections Such is the fractious nature of our current polity that even on this rather non-contentious issue, a consensus looks difficult.So the question arises whether:Tengku Adnan Mansor is really needed We are struggling and he says we enjoy great success? How to slap most of the Malaysia in the face? I can't begin to imagine what we would all have if not for this BN government and all the crooks associated with them.This is a most pathetic admission. Looks like making money is the ultimate objective. You make,I make so, your scratch my back,I scratch yours. what??all is acceptable. What a sad state of affairs for KL and Malaysia?The country would have done a whole lot better if not for the stable and steady corruption of this stable and corrupt government. Look at our neighbour in the south. Such a small country and squeaky clean but it is a powerhouse in the world. It is IN SPITE of the so-called stable government that people have worked hard and given you our taxes. “to pay special attention to the section of our society that may be at the risk of not benefiting adequately from economic progress”. This is rather a long winded way of saying that it has to take care of the poor and marginalised. 

UMNO general secretary and MP Tengku Adnan Mansor said BN government’s 57 year governance record may not be spotless, Information is Knowledge, Power and Wisdom: Politics and Business are identical twins. The Chinese Business men, contractors, Pharmacies, etc. etc. CANNOT make money if the government servants are NOT corrupted, The Big companies will have to close shop without the government projects. If you stop Corruption, the good citizens of all races will survive and prosper but  cannot deny that UMNO had helped us prosper, said Federal Territories Minister the scam’s shadow’s creeping up around him.“provide advice and encourage partnerships between key stakeholders and national and international like-minded think tanks”! — that are not entirely clear.One of the key functions forNajib  to build the necessary trust and serve as a dynamic bridge between government and the private sector. This is currently missing. This weakness puts Malaysia at a massive disadvantage in fiercely competitive global markets and in global civil society space.
