TOTAL VISITORS FROM 2008:

Future of Democracy in Asia 879

 

Thank you very much for this opportunity to speak to the audience here. Malaysia has gone through a very furious transition. I was the leader for 22 years of the government party which ruled Malaysia for 61 years.

Now I am now leading the opposition and the opposition has now become the government. So I am not changing my stand first I say that I still see have the same old ideas about the authoritarian rule which I might been accused of being dictator during my time. But I beg to differ I was not a dictator but that doesn’t make anybody change their minds. Whenever they mention my name they always described me as a dictator and today a dictator is going to talk about democracy. But I don’t know whether I’m qualified or not. But I will try.

In the first place of course democracy is not an Asian invention it came from the west. Again I suppose from Greece but now the whole world has been told that you have to become democratic else has seen rapid changes taking place in many places.

And as a result of trying to be democratic they have met worst fate then when they were under authoritarian rule. So does that mean that authoritarian rule is best. Well of course we deny that because we think that the only system of government that should be practised by all countries must be the democratic system. But democracy is not something easy to handle. The basic rules of course is that the majority of the people have a right to choose a government to govern their country. But even in a democracy there
can be autocrat to rule rather tightly as I have been accused of. But if you want to make government work you have to have certain disciplines.

Asian minds are not accustomed to the idea that country can be ruled by the people. We have always had monarchs with absolute power and we have survived in a way of course. There were a lot of criticism again the monarchies rule they tend to be rather cruel to their own people in order to sustain themselves.

But now Asian are told that they should have democracy. And democracy mean not having any monarch or any dictator. It is people who will choose their leaders would lead the country. The assumption of course is that the majority of the people must know what is good for themselves.

Unfortunately they are distracted by other things like money for example. If they’re given money some of them would vote for whoever gives money whether he is a democrat or he is an authoritarian ruler. So sometimes or rather quite often it happens that democratically elected ruler can behave like a dictator and that’s what happened to Malaysia since 2013 when the Prime Minister who has been ousted took over. He introduced into democracy a new slogan and that slogan is called Cash is King.

In other words he’s saying that it is legitimate and proper to bribe in order to do to get anything done. But prime ministers are not paid very well. I think if you are in the public sector doing business you’re better paid. But for Prime Minister who is running whole country the pay is very very low. So if you want to bribe and you don’t have money he had to think of some ways to get money. And the previous Prime Minister decided that he would steal the money because he hasn’t got enough money to give bribes which will change the minds of people.

That show that even if we elect a ruler doesn’t mean that he will behave himself. There are mechanism for removing ruler who is not fair who is cruel and all that but sometimes the whole system can be can be converted to the dictators ideas and they will carry out his instruction because they know that they will be very well paid for that. So even in a democracy there can be dictators. And we find that when working with the democratic government too many people have got ideas which they think should be carried out out by the government and because they had different ideas from the government we have opposition parties.

Opposition parties normally can only criticise the government but seldom they can overthrow the government or bring government down. Unless of course it is a two party system.But two party is not very democratic. It means some people will have to forget their own ideas their own ideals in order to be a part of the other party the opposition. Only if there is a united opposition can democracy, can there be election to form the government.But it is not easy to have just two parties because many people would believe that they they are the right people to form the government.

And so when you see the regime change taking place in the Arab countries they, every one of those people who campaign, who demonstrated in order to overthrow the authoritarian government every one of them felt that they were the ones who should be running the government. But they are not united they come from various parties and the only reason why they think the government should be brought down is because they think they would be able to rule after the government is overthrown. But there are so many people who wants to be the government and of course immediately after the overthrow of authoritarian ruler there be will quarrel among the people who overthrew him.

Because you belong to different parties with different ideas. The end result may be Civil War at least tension and instability in the country. And they see in some countries they lost the ability to run the country. They become Failed Nations because they kept on quarrelling quarrelling with each other and not getting any benefit at all from democracy.

So we cant claim democracy as if one size shoes which fix all because each country each people have their own cultures and some of their cultures are so strong that it is difficult for them to change from having a dictator of an absolute monarch and replacing him with someone you elect merely by making a tick on the piece of paper. This is not common with them and therefore this idea can not be easily practise in many many countries in Asia and the Middle East. So we need to accept that democracy is not a perfect system it has his flaws but to make it work the mindset and the value system of the people must be capable of accepting rule by a person who is elected every 5 years. Sometimes of course it doesn’t last 5 years or something may go on to rule the country for 5 terms.

But all these are still seen quite democratic but some will fail because of the quarrells that take place all the time with the people snapping at the government and the government spending time and money in order to govern the country. He will not be able to govern in the country because he has to face a lot of disruptions coming from the very people who elected him.

So in Asia today we find not too many democracies. India is supposed to be the biggest democracy and but the others are quite totalitarian such as kingdom and countries of central Asia. In the east of course although leaders may be elected the ability to rule is not so good because of the constant sniping at the ruler whoever he may be. So the future of democracy in in Asia I think well will be something that will will not be achieve overnight as happens with some of the Middle Eastern countries. They change over night and today we see more problems than it was before they had democracy. You see civil war you see a lot of fighting and you’ll see a lot of disruption of the environment and they are unable to rule well or to get others to come and invest in their countries.

So I hope that people will understand that it takes time for people to become democratic. The value system must be suitable for democracy before democracy it self can be used as a method of running a country.

Thank you very much.

    From the good news on our Malaysian economy as published by UOB Malaysia Investment Research in recent days to the latest independent news on corruption which lauded Malaysia with improvement in its ranking, it is now clear to all and sundry that the normal measures of transparent governance by your Good and Incorruptible PH Government are bearing tangible results.

    Your choice of the Cabinet members was correct except for one or two loose cannons. The Cabinet has performed as a Team. I find the Ministry of Information is too shy to broadcast the good tidings arising from your Government’s sincere efforts to do good for our beloved country.

    However, the information as mentioned above only goes to prove more of the same will be forthcoming. So far so good as is commonly said.

    The more crooks are charged in Court by the MACC the better for the World’s view of us as we finally discarded the horrible corrupt shadow or image of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    Our beloved Malaysia will emerge victorious by defeating CORRUPTION CREATED BY CROOKS. Thanks to your PH Government and the MACC and other relevant authorities.

    Our beloved Malaysia’s DIGNITY has returned Bigger and Mightier no matter what the detractors, the naysayers, morons, treasonous ennobled Senior Civil Servants, tycoons, crypto-singaporeans or communists, fellow travellers, tycoons, Man from the Moon or Mars, swallows, ducks etc, will say.

    Under your wise, brilliant and courageous Premiership, the positive good results will come fast and furious in the months to come in 2020. There is no reason why the destinies of 31 million souls of our beloved Malaysia should change good horses in mid-stream. No sane person will do such a thing.

    Hence, this morning’s headline is the harbinger of more good tidings to come and jealous busybodies are a dime a dozen in our beloved Malaysia these days.

    ” MALAYSIA ANTI-GRAFT RANKING FURTHER IMPROVES. ”

    THE RANKING WILL IMPROVE MUCH FURTHER IF THE CROOKED SHARE-RIGGERS ON THE BURSA KUALA LUMPUR ARE CAUGHT AND CHARGED IN COURT. THEY HAVE BROKEN THE LAWS FOR FAR TOO LONG WITH THE CONNIVANCE OF THE RELEVANT AUTHORITIES AND THEIR HUSBANDS 2004-2018 !

    And our DSAI’s purported advice, ” DO NOT DISCUSS TRANSITION OPENLY “. In other words, please shut up talking about the ‘transition’ subject which only strictly concern both of us and no one else.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    Malaysia under the first 4 distinguished Prime Ministers was a country with no excitement or shocking developments every day. But with the 14 year rule of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs, our beloved Malaysia has become a country which we have never seen before even though the January of blue skies and sunshine is still with us.

    But even after our harrowing passage with that most corrupt BN Government, it is nothing compared with what First World Singapore is going through at present, with headlines thus,

    ” IS SINGAPORE PERFECT ECONOMY COMING APART ? ONCE HAILED AS A MODEL OF PROGRESS, POVERTY AND NATIVIST RESENTMENT ARE ON THE RISE. ”

    Of course this was bound to happen as I always said Singapore’s only natural resource is BLUFFOLOGY MADE BY LEE KUAN YEW. Now that he has departed what is left is just a deflated balloon with no one to fill it with the hot air.

    Or to put it in another manner, the Lee Kuan Yew 20th Century socio-economic Model for Singapore has collapsed because it was based on the wrong principles.

    Singapore NEVER HAD THE SUPER ECONOMIC ACHIEVEMENTS WHICH IT CLAIMED TO HAVE BECAUSE THE REAL MONEY DID NOT COME FROM ITS OWN ECONOMY BUT EXTRANEOUSLY FROM THE COLD WAR MONOPOLISTIC TRADE LARGESSE 1948-1989 WORLD WIDE BLESSED BY UNCLE SAM !

    When the BRICS grabbed Singapore’s Cold War Trades, Singapore was left without a huge source of revenue to keep her up with the Jones’s the First World after this which is now. The loss was at least 2% – 3% of her GDP annually. Since 2002, it was impossible for Singapore to bridge this deficit gap. Hence Lee Kuan Yew conjured his 4 Initiatives being Temasek, FTs imports, 2 casinos and the Malaysia/Malays Killer TPPA/CPTPP which all failed by 2019.

    Diplomatically, a similar headline came from Davos, Switzerland, thus

    ” OPEN GLOBAL TRADING SYSTEM KEY FOR SMALL COUNTRIES LIKE SINGAPORE, PM LEE AT WEF PANEL ”

    Dear Sir, Uncle Sam was not listening since January 2017 !

    The perfect Singapore Model was based on an Open Global Trading System. But within the last 2 years, a US-China Trade War got heated up with all nations scrambling to protect and safeguard their own turf. Singapore’s tiny size got caught between a rock and a hard place because she has NO BARGAINING POWER TO DEAL WITH ANY NATION ON EARTH POST COLD WAR.

    NOW WHO CARES IF SINGAPORE IS COMMUNIST WITH A CHINESE MALE POPULATION AGED 21-50 OF ONLY 900,000 ? Vide: Singapore Government White Paper on Population 2011.

    See how our wise, brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad at the throw of the dice, our beloved Malaysia overnight on 9 May 2018 became ONE OF THE FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA.

    Many Malaysians still do not realise their good fortune which had befallen them and still grumble, curse and swear at all and sundry.

    THE MINISTRY OF INFORMATION WHERE ARE YOU ?

    And Singapore will have to bear more news like this in 2020, thus

    ” CHINA’S LATEST GDP GROWTH FIGURES REVEAL BAD NEWS FOR 2020 ! ”

    Where Lee Kuan Yew went wrong was he was too legalistic, narcissistic and conventional. If Uncle Sam blessed him and Singapore with the Cold War Monopolistic Trades 1948-1989, he should have gone one step further and broke convention by investing in 4,000 tons of GOLD at US$ 300 per ounce before the year 2000. He and Singapore would have won their FREEDOM FROM UNCLE SAM. But Man proposes. God disposes. Singapore is now neglected by Uncle Sam.

    ” The Americans easily forget. The British try not to forget. The French never forget. The Chinese never never never forget. The Malaysians forgive and forget. ”

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem IN YOU WE ALL TRUST !

    It is patently absurd for the Nine Hounds of PKR/DAP to keep on baying day after day for the Prime Minister’s Chair to be vacated.

    These Hounds are immature surprisingly and claimed to be very Senior in whatever they consider to be their specialty which is Politics, ulu Politics. Their joint efforts on looking down on a motivated and inspired politician aged 21, is not merit to them because THESE HOUNDS NEARLY SPENT THEIR WHOLE POLITICKING LIFE IN THE OPPOSITION WITHOUT ANY SUCCESS UNTIL YOU, TUN, WISELY, BRILLIANTLY AND COURAGEOUSLY TOOK UP THE CUDGELS TO CHALLENGE EVIL- the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs !

    When I met you in April 2010, I already heard your Family was unwilling to let you take part in Politics again. But your LOVE and LOYALTY for our beloved Malaysia and her 31 million citizens TO SAFEGUARD THEM FROM BEING EXPLOITED BY CROOKS SPURRED YOU ON AND ON. This is what differentiates A HERO FROM OTHERS WHO ARE AVAILABLE A DIME A DOZEN, the copy cats, the plagiarists and the charlatans !

    The Politics of Malaysia today is not an airy-fairy game of musical chairs. IT IS THE POLITICS OF LIFE AND DEATH.

    Our beloved Malaysia was fortunate to survive to live and fight another day under our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s Leadership with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    The Malaysia after 14 years of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 was completely shattered with its economy and its Value System destroyed by the idiotic slogan, ” CASH IS KING “. We all now know the CASH came from the Rakyat.

    With the ousting of the corrupt BN Government, the decades old political and business nexus was broken which led to a hiatus between political will and private cash which created unhappiness amongst large sections of the populace. Unlike the years of 2016-2017, no new Audis could be seen in 2019 driven by well-dressed young ladies. This used to be BMW 3 Series.

    Not only that, with the unmasking of the real Malaysian economy which was faked by all sorts of monetary gimmicks to cover the truth, it is now clear, very clear THAT THE WHOLE OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA HAS BEEN IMPOVERISHED BY 30% – 40% IN TERMS OF ALL ASSETS WHICH IS CONFIRMED BY THE TRANSFER OF RM 1.5 TRILLION OUT OF THE COUNTRY BETWEEN 2002-2018 AS CONFIRMED BY THE ANNUAL REPORTS OF THE UN, THE WORLD BANK AND THE IMF !

    That money was the life blood of the beloved Nation without which the population of 31 Millions would die a living death slowly. This black money now benefits the host countries. Stupid.

    But the evil Plan was for a Puppet BN Government to be controlled and massaged via the TPPA/CPTPP by the smallest State in the whole Universe. The big bucks to be supplied by a big Nation for our beloved MALAYSIA TO BE LOCKED BOTH WAYS FOREVER – A FORM OF COLONIALISM BY LOVE AND KISSES. This did not materialise by the timely ousting of the corrupt BN on 9 May 2018.

    Man proposes. God disposes.

    On 9 May 2018, our beloved Malaysia was a devastated landscape completely devoid of its wealth which was financially raped by the corrupt BN which we elected into office democratically.

    The Malaysia then was no NORMAL Malaysia but it was a sort of Pyrrhic Victory at great cost to all.

    That was nearly 2 years ago. NO PERSON CAN REBUILD A COUNTRY IN 2 YEARS WHICH WAS BUILT OVER 50 YEARS BY 4 SUCCEEDING PRIME MINISTERS AND SUBSEQUENTLY DESTROYED BY THE CORRUPT BN GOVERNMENT IN LESS THAN 14 YEARS. Those who think this is possible can best be described as NUTS !

    Now who is a better person than our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as the Prime Minister to rehabilitate and reconstruct our MORALE AND WEALTH in a raped country ?

    I DO NOT SEE ANYONE ON THE HORIZON QUALIFIED TO DO SO BUT I DO HEAR A MULTITUDE OF VOICES WHICH CALLED OUT THEY CAN DO THE JOB. But where were they between 1057-2018 ? Snoring beneath the old durian tree ?

    After our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and DSAI and the Team have cleared up the mess, more and more strident voices screamed for POWER. Shades of the ignorant who are not aware of the real Malaysia today after being financially raped by the corrupt BN !

    Let the Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad make the right decision this time that his successor will not play hanky-panky and pretend he did not remember or hear any blessing from him. An important point of trustworthiness and loyalty in Malaysian Politics.

    So when confronted with the facts, one could only surmise that the 9 Baying Hounds of PKR/DAP were baying at the rise of the Moon like in India at midnight !

    THE LIVES OF 31 MILLION CITIZENS OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA MUST BE LED BY THE BEST PERSON THAT IS QUALIFIED TO DO SO IN THE LAND. NOT BY SOME HOI-POLLOI JUST BECAUSE THEY SOUNDED THE LOUDEST AND LONGEST.

    A Prime Minister is born, not made. If the cap fits, please wear it.

    AND DO NOT THINK JUST BECAUSE A PERSON IS AN OLD FAILURE IN POLITCS, HE/SHE SHOULD BE BETTER THAN A YOUNG POLITICAL ASPIRANT. As I always said a politician should begin at 21 and not 51 !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. If one is a FOOL, an old political FOOL, please do not open your mouth because it confirms the fact !

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON UOB MALAYSIA RESEARCH STATEMENT.

    The Bursa is an important vehicle for the investment community. From 2004-2018, the shares of listed companies of some companies were rigged. I am aware of one particular culprit who share-rigged over 8 listed companies during a 14 year span in CORRUPT COLLUSION WITH THE CONTROLLING SHAREHOLDERS. The total corrupt profit made by this particular share-rigger and the substantial shareholders was over RM 1 Billion by share rigging over 8 companies 2000-2016. This sort of activity could only be condoned by corrupt regulatory authorities.

    UNTIL THESE SHARE RIGGING CULPRITS ARE PROSECUTED, THE MINORITY SHAREHOLDERS WILL ALWAYS BE THE LOSERS AND FOREIGN INVESTORS WILL KEEP OUT OF SUCH AN ILLEGAL TRAP CONDONE BY THE RELEVANT AUTHORITIES.

    Hence, the Bursa becomes smaller and smaller as the injured minority and foreign investors leave in droves. In the case I mentioned, the minority shareholders lost over RM 1 Billion AND THE SHARE RIGGER PROUDLY CALLED HIMSELF AN INVESTOR.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. THE BURSA MUST BE REFORMED BY BRINGING THE SHARE-RIGGERS TO COURT, BIG AND SMALL.

    As we progress deeper into the year 2020, those lightweight Mickey Mouse who want your Prime Minister’s job badly are out in force with their obligatory remarks.

    These are the naysayers, detractors, morons, treasonous ennobled Civil Servant, tycoons, crypto-singaporeans or communists, the Man from the Moon or Mars, the spies, the swallows, the ducks etc. The list is endless.

    As the crescendo of shrill voices rises, our beloved Malaysia’s economics statistics become better and better giving all those cringing, whining and crying negative types a kick in the butt so to speak.

    Here is the confirmation from an independent information source, UOB Malaysia Research gives 10 reasons that Malaysia has turned the corner, thus

    The Headline –

    ” UOB MALAYSIA RESEARCH’S 10 SIGNS OF TURNAROUND IN ECONOMY ”

    1. Manufacturing activity index or PMI improved in November and December 2019. ( My italics – Singapore also improved in December)

    2. Business surveys signal a turnaround in sentiment with stronger expectations.

    3. The leading index rose by 0.3% y/y and 1.5% y/y in September and October 2019.

    4. Gross exports will be assisted by recovery in global growth and trade.

    5. Softer declines in imports of intermediate and capital goods recorded softer declines suggest receding pessimism for future exports and investments.

    6. Industrial production increased by 2.0% y/y in November helped by mining, manufacturing and electricity especially LNG.

    7. Construction, new permits, and renewed licences saw double digit growth.

    8. Distributive trades index recorded an uptick of 5.5% in November. Meanwhile, higher crude palm oil price supports agriculture incomes and spending.

    9. Inflation hit a 6 months low of 0.9% Y/Y in November.

    10. Monetary indicators moderated for most of 2019. Statistics connected with this look promising.

    I would add TWO important points.

    1. The expected inflows of money both domestic and foreign under the FDI investments incurred in 2018 and 2019. At least US$ 3 Billions will flow in.

    2. The Good and Incorruptible Government has stopped Corruption in Government expenditures. This will bring tremendous savings like the present Government gets 85 sen – 90 sen worth for every Ringgit it spent. The corrupt BN Government could only retrieve 50 sen – 60 sen. Squeaky clean Singapore could get 93 cts per Singapore Dollar.

    No one has mentioned that our beloved Malaysia’s economy was flat on its back in 2017 and the early part of 2018. Thanks to the rape of the financial resources of the Federal Government by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs. Vide. According to the UN, the IMF and the World Bank Annual Reports, over RM 1.5 Trillion Ringgits flowed out to overseas.

    There you are Tun. You were correct from the very beginning that it takes time to put our beloved Malaysia back on the right track again. As money is always in a state of flux, a Supplementary Budget is expected to uplift the flagging morale of the PH supporters and boost Malaysia’s economy in the right places.

    Your choice of the FM at the present time was correct. Kudos to the FM. We must have someone who understands the value of money as the FM – not any donkey or lackey who always says “YES”. Fakes, plagiarists and charlatans are a dime a dozen in Malaysia these days.

    It is stupid, utterly stupid to base the fortunes of a Government on a couple of by-elections which are focussed on local issues with local warlords. This fact confirms that those who want a New PM are immature and do not understand the broader issues which could only be viewed from the cockpit of the PH Leadership.

    My view is that there should be no change of the Premiership until our beloved Malaysia is on firm and solid ground again devoid of booby traps. Roughly, this should take another year or more, if all things being equal.

    As the UOB Malaysia Research stated, ” THESE SIGNALS ARE ENCOURAGING THOUGH WE ARE STILL CAUTIOUS AMID THE FRAGILE GROWTH ENVIRONMENT AND LINGERING DOMESTIC POLITICS AND POLICY UNCERTAINTEIS. ” My view is that they are too conservative.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. IT IS GOOD FOR ALL TO KNOW THAT OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS ONLY ONCE, NOT TWICE. The hasty detractors will soon find themselves ousted by the Opposition because they know NOTHING above them.

    ” SYED SADDIQ (an upcoming Malay elite) – HOW CAN PM GOVERN NATION WHEN ASSAILED DAILY BY ANWAR’S ALLIES. ” Not fake news !

    Tun,

    I would never have thought I have to say this, but I will say it, anyway. One cannot have his cake and eat it too. We have to choose one or the other. It is the only way.

    As I see it, if this country wants to become a fully developed country, and recognized as such by other already developed countries, we have to act like one. We have to choose the right side. Yes.., THE RIGHT SIDE. WE HAVE NO CHOICE.

    There is NO place for religious fundamentalism or indeed even politics of religion for a progressive nation. What more of a multi-racial country like ours; indeed, the non-Muslims and Borneo natives are so worried that they are LESS willing to embrace the single Malaysian race idea, hindering our progress for a unified nation for decades now. We have to take the neutral stand. We have to stand away from showing PUBLIC support to countries that are alleged to have links to terrorism in the Middle East. Yes, I mean even alleged, not proven either on your term or their term. To be honest, the vast majority in the country (certainly the progressives like me) very hesitant on supporting the recent KL Summit on Muslim Nations. For me, it was a bit going overboard.

    The bottom line is what counts. For me, it is either we join the developed world FULLY, or we don’t at all. Not halfhearted. That is the choice we MUST make. AT the moment, Malaysia seems to be doing BOTH(!!). THIS DOESN’T WORK. We are now seen as sympathizers to a far-away cause that has nothing to do with Malaysia’s economic future. For me, OUR OWN children’s future is far more important than theirs.

    Sorry for sounding frank, but this is the perspective of a secular progressive. I hope to see a genuinely united country where Malays, Chinese, Indians, Borneo natives, Orang Asli feel proud to be called Malaysian, embracing the national language with genuine pride. A country that is also a leading economic power. A member of the OECD.

    You must have come to the same conclusions on Humankind as myself that people are funny and unpredictable.

    I have had many opportunities to go a certain route but I took the other with no regrets on hindsight.

    So it was not surprising that the media reported you wanted to study Law sometime ago. Would you be a Prime Minister or a Lord Chief Justice or a wealthy lawyer so to speak ?

    I also had some spare time to study Law. I surmised I could complete Part I of the Bar Examinations but Part 2 was a different matter. All in all, I would end up as a Coroner which job I was not interested in. And so it is with opportunities which have four-legs whilst we have only two. How to chase after this four legged animal after it had romped past, Tun ?

    For a study of Public Figures, Lee Kuan Yew was one of the most engaging and colourful because he was active right to the end of his Life.

    His biggest opportunity was the lengthy Cold War 1948-1989 during which he was at the right place and time. His lucky star shone most at this time. Through him, I reckon Singapore garnered close to US$ 500 Billion more or less through the Cold War Trades. That was his first opportunity.

    He could not see it and missed the second opportunity which was to invest in 4,000 tons of GOLD at US$ 300 per ounce before the year 2000. This oversight caused his legacy and Singapore’s prospects for survival and sustainability dear.

    Because with this largesse from the Cold War 1948-1989, by October 2008, Singapore would have been the King of the Hill and not just an ordinary knight in shining armour. Malaysia would have been caught between a rock and a hard place. But Man proposes. God disposes. Our beloved Malaysia escaped by the skin of her teeth.

    That was Lee Kuan Yew’s second opportunity lost whilst the first opportunity was served to him on a plate by Uncle Sam’s strategic requirements.

    THE THIRD OPPORTUNITY HAS ARRIVED ON SINGAPORE’S DOORSTEP IN 2020. With its economy in doldrums since 2002 after the big grab by the BRICS, Singapore’s opportunity, the four legged animal, has arrived again.

    THIS IS THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONFEDERATE WITH BRITAIN ON EQUAL TERMS.

    Manifold benefits will not only accrue to Singapore which its bland and uninspiring Leadership can work out but the snowball effects will spread right through ASEAN and beyond. A brave New World in a 21st Century endeavour HANDS ACROSS THE SEAS SO TO SPEAK.

    Let us all hope the best for all in 2020 especially that survival for all is best BY THOSE IN POWER WHO COULD SHAPE AND WORK OUT THEIR OWN DESTINIES RATHER THAN BE CONTROLLED BY THEIR ENEMIES. Pour le vouz francais PH ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. If any problem it’s the mind-sets again Tun !

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON THE GOOD FUTURE OF PH WITH THE RIGHT POLICIES.

    All of us have just one LIFE. With this LIFE, we hit or miss.

    Our beloved Malaysia for the very first time became one of the 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia. Malaysia overnight since 9 May 2018 became one of those few countries which counted due to the wisdom, brilliance and courage of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and DSAI with his Team.

    None of these stalwarts with the Prime Minister needs prompting that their Lifetime struggles to do good is already in their hands.

    BUT HAVE THEY GOT THE GUMPTION TO TURN POWER IN THEIR HANDS INTO GOODS DELIVERABLE TO THE RAKYAT WHICH SUPPORTED THME IN A GE ?

    Two years of being incumbents in Power will soon be upon us. So far, it is understandable that a lot of cleansing had to be done. But this was yesterday. Bold and catchy Policies have got to be trundled out to keep the home fires burning or else these may peter out. Distractions like a Cabinet to endorse cultural festivities which have been celebrated for hundreds of years ago do not improve its image. Pitfalls, bear traps etc laid by its enemies are to be avoided.

    Loose cannons should be silenced in the general interest of the Team in the Cabinet. This known as maturity.

    Like ancient times, all party members should marshal behind the Flags of Policies to lead the troops into the battle. A bloody battle is unavoidable in any War. At the moment, the Flags are not being waved or flying to tell us Policies are in place. The key Flags to look for are those representing the socio-economics, agriculture and food production, the revision of the Laws and security. But every day we are distracted by the highlighting of personal ambitions which are not at all connected with these important areas of care, enhancement and development. The less unproductive politicking the better for the general mental health of all.

    The time has arrived for the foot to be put down on the accelerator to propel us towards successes of any kind which may be more easily identified from the cockpit of Leadership. As it is, only the general broad strokes of the intended picture could be made but not the details which completion could only be best left to those on the line.

    With 2020 upon us, great expectations must be expected from the Good and the Incorruptible Government with such a wonderful vista before it. It is a great pity if the incumbents in the Government do not realise the importance which our beloved Malaysia has for the very first time was able to project and develop herself into one of the only 4 important small countries of the World. Opportunity is a 4-legged horse. If it comes, one must jump on it immediately or it will lost forever.

    I have the greatest respect for the abilities and capabilities of the present incumbent Government. I wish them well in the crucial months ahead. It is alleged that politicians are the World’s greatest opportunists. Time will tell.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON THE WONDERFUL FUTURE FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IF PH HOLDS ON.

    The PH Coalition came together because the Rakyat realised that the dire neglect of the needs of all by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs did not bring the country anywhere due to the financial rape of the country’s financial resources – an incident 2004-2018 which was worse than the Rape of the Sabine Women of ancient Rome.

    With the ousting of the corrupt BN Government, the PH Government now has the right platform to pursue their goals further with the cleansing of the Augean Stables which should now be completed.

    But there is always the baying of the male and female Hounds of the NGOs to keep their money pockets alive, full and well by seeking all sorts of reforms which have nothing to do with socio-economics but more to do with their selfish interests. After all, talking and cursing is free in our democratic Malaysia.

    With a proper mind-set, the country should not be bogged down by frivolous arguments over reforms but FOCUS ON THE BREAD AND BUTTER ISSUES AT HAND WHICH ARE JOBS, BETTER SALARIES, LOWER COST OF LIVING ESPECIALLY TRANSPORTATIONS COSTS AND EASE OF TRAVEL, WITH AFFORDABLE HOUSING etc. But all these are ‘pies in the sky’ types of desires if THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS NO FUNDS TO SUPPORT ITS POLICIES.

    But on the funding aspect, the Good and Incorruptible Government can see the light clearly in 2020 and with the will to retrieve all the money that was stolen by the crooks, Malaysia could just balance its books with stable oil and palm oil prices. The GDP is touted at 4.4 per cent for 2020. A Supplementary Budget may add 1-2 per cent more inclusive of the Visit Malaysia Year efforts.

    SO WHAT IS BUGGING THE PH GOVERNMENT FROM BEING MORE POSITIVE AND EFFECTIVE ? It is the mind-set again as exhorted by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad time and time again.

    AND WHERE SHOULD A PROPER MIND-SET BE FOUND IN THE PH COALITION ?

    Not in those fake photographs of naked fat young men, not in those unreasonable demands for reforms which have been captured by the NGOs for fund raising purpose or anything else.

    A PROPER MIND SET SHOULD BE FOUND IN THE STATE GOVERNMENT OF PULAU PINANG TO PARTICPATE IN THE COMBINED DEVELOPMENT OF PULAU PINANG, KEDAH AND PERLIS. This will have a positive snow-ball effect over the whole of the Peninsula to Sabah and Sarawak. This is the rub. This is the nub. This will increase demand for properties all round.

    The aim of this Proposed Development is to turn raw land into developed lands – THE CLASSIC MALAYSIAN METHOD OF CREATING WEALTH FOR GENERATIONS – Instead of borrowing billions of ringgits without any means to repay in the future.

    The Party involved has arrived at the cross-roads. It was fun and games being always right as an Opposition Party. But the time has arrived and no time must be lost for this particular Party to decide on its stand towards Sovereignty and National Interest. This is the most important hurdle for them to really participate in the National Development of our beloved Malaysia to create wealth for the Rakyat for now and the future.

    The smiling, grinning and the back-slapping has to stop and the ground breaking ceremonies on Pulau Pinang and Kedah must begin soonest or else the PH will find it tough to fight an Opponent armed with big bucks and a fighting machine to boot.

    THE KEY TO THE STRENGTH AND SURVIVAL OF THE PH COALITION IS IN THE HANDS OF ONE PARTY WHICH HAS TO HAVE THE RIGHT MIND-SET TO PLUNGE INTO A MARVELLOUS DEVELOPMENT EMBRACING PULAU PINANG, KEDAH AND PERLIS WHICH WILL CREATE A KNOCK-ON EFFECT NOT ONLY IN THE ADJACENT STATES BUT THROUGHOUT THE LAND. Or else, the alternative must be bleak to be able to stay another term.

    A political Party Leadership should be daring, wise, intelligent and visionary to take risks in the general interest of all and not adopt esoteric policies for esoteric interests.

    WHAT IS THE POINT IN HAVING A POLITICAL PARTY FULL OF MICKEY MOUSE FROM DISNEYLAND ?

    With the changing political scenario of our beloved Malaysia, the common issues being touted and argued every day which are actually NO ISSUES at all but were all highlighted because of the dire lack of earning opportunities for all WITH PULAU PINANG SITTING ON ITS HIDDEN TREASURES WITH A DOG IN A MANGER ATTITUDE waiting for the big bucks to come if ever.

    The wise men in this particular Party would have seen the change in the Party’s mind-sets coming when they decided to form the PH to oust the corrupt BN Government.

    WOULD THE SAME WISE MEN NOW TAKE A RADICAL STEP OF LEAVING THEIR PAST BEHIND AND DECIDE WHETHER TO SERVE THE NATION’S INTERESTS OR THEIR OWN INTERESTS which is chauvinism.

    Who says Malaysian Politics is dull and boring ? One thing I observed through the years is that there are not many baldies amongst the Malaysian Politicians who most probably always left their MIND-SETS AT HOME.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem

    The year 2020 has arrived. Some politicians will have to make the right decision to enable our beloved Malaysia to regain its stolen wealth through new Developments so that reforms would be more acceptable to all and sundry. Is this putting the horse before the cart, Ladies and Gentlemen ?

  10. mubarakchan Jan 20,2020 12:51 PM

    Tun

    What better a headline as this in the early morning of a wonderful Malaysian day, thus

    ” DR M. PAKATAN WILL BE ONE-TERM GOVT. IF WE DON’T BUCK UP. ”

    Who knows best about the state of the New and Incorruptible Government but our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad himself who took on a task which is no mean feat under any circumstances especially after the rotten regime of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs ?

    Our beloved Malaysia a small country who had the good fortune to have a clear and good run through successive exceptional Prime Ministers, the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and our indefatigable Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad from 1957-2003. Thereafter, from 2004-2018 our Value System built up over centuries was destroyed in a matter of months by those who believed “CASH IS KING”.

    To turn a whole country right again, THE FIRST STEP MUST BEGIN AT THE TOP OF THE PYRAMID. This is exactly what our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has said. All those in POWER must work as a Team.

    A Power Pyramid is useless if it is stacked full of ineffective digits which do not contribute to the production of the goodies which the Rakyat or proletariat hanker for at the base.

    This situation is not new when between 2004-2018, not only did the goodies dried up but were seen to defy gravity by flowing upwards to the Apex of the Power Pyramid where all goodies became exlusive.

    In a Malaysian Style Democracy, if the Rakyat are not happy with those who are in Power now, they have a choice to toss them out.

    Take the case of Pulau Pinang and its State Government which is forever trying to ape Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore based on half-truths. The hanker for sea reclamation, concrete condos, tunnels and highways etc. when in fact, a little bit of proper mindset will open the faucets of billions of ringgits for the Rakyat.

    Factually and socio-economically, Pulau Pinang is hemmed in by its geography and demographics. To undo its straits jacket, billions of ringgits have to be spent with no prospect of making profits in a tiny State of Malaysia unlike Singapore which wealth came out of the Cold war 1948-1989.. Logically, the State Government unlocks the billions of ringgits now seating in the old Payar Lebar Airport and its environs which include the FTZ. With the development of the old Payar Lebar Airport into the finest New George Town, a World Class Tropical City, all the FTZ should gravitate to the Kulim International Airport Complex concomitant with Wealth created on the Island and the Mainland. A single move like this breaks the grid lock of lack of finance and potential. The idea of the 3 Island Reclamation is a SHAM. It is unnecessary, expensive and no prospect of earning a profitable return. It is neither Politics or Socio-economics BUT JUST A COPY CAT OF THE BLUFFOLOGY OF 20TH CENTURY SINGAPORE. To recap, the Singapore Government engaged a UN Economics expert Dr Albert Winsemius 1962-1984 who recommended sea reclamation, Jurong Industrial Park, Asian Dollar, Government linked companies, etc. His recommendations are all to be seen in Singapore today.

    It is without any doubt, Pulau Pinang is the World’ Best Holiday Destination and Resort if the focus is to make this so. Better jobs opportunities in a better environment. Industrialization for Pulau Pinang is a one-off thing of the past. This will never come back again. BUT TOURISM SUITS PULAU PINANG TO A T FOR ITS RAKYAT AND THE STATE GOVERNMENT AS WELL. Better jobs. Better pay. Better working environment.

    The time is now for all State Governments to buck up and fashion Policies to benefit the Rakyat like Pulau Pinang and Kedah which are actually Gemini Twins in socio-economic development.

    Another bug-bear of any Federal Government is the dire neglect to revise the antique Laws of our beloved Malaysia like the Companies Act 1965, The Bankruptcy Act 1967 and The Trustees Act 1949. Britain, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia keep their Laws up-dated to the minute. One of these countries could even change the Law on the spot in Court to the ire of its Opposition.

    Yes ! It Is timely for the Leaders of the Ruling Coalition to buck up and come together to deliver the goodies to the Rakyat who were starved of goodies since 2004. Jobs, good salaries, affordable housing, lower costs wherever possible especially in foods, cheaper transportation, etc which directly affect the Rakyat’s pockets are definitely a positive beginning.

    All the signs on the wall seem to point to a Supplementary Budget soon. Hopefully, the FM worships a different philosophy than those Chinese FMs of faraway and long ago who thought being thrifty like Confucius would qualify them to be FMs ! They turned out to be unmitigated disasters !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    The reason why the PH lost is simple ?

    OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S VALUE SYSTEM WAS DESTROYED BY THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE AND GLCs/SOEs !

  11. mubarakchan Jan 19,2020 11:51 PM

    Tun

    With the 14 years of neglect to provide essential public services to the whole country by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs, we now feel the results of such mis-governance erupting from here and there. The latest headline, thus

    ” CLOUD SEEDING STARTS OVER KEDAH SKIES. ”

    My view is that if the BN Government had been caring and not neglectful, water shortages in our beloved Malaysia would be less often than it is now. Nothing concerning the conservation and enhancement the water supply to all was considered but more importantly the task of following up on the Policy if any.

    It is common sense that States with a plentiful supply of water should be paired with less unfortunate States which naturally have to pay for what is supplied to them. Charity begins at home.

    Most of us have seen water being wasted from broken down pipes along the highways and by-ways. I believe that the old asbestos pipes of the 20th Century are still in use. With so much wastage of money due to corruption, expensive modern copper pipes would be a ‘pipe dream’.

    Take the case of Kedah, logically Kedah, Pulau Pinang and Perlis should be socio-economically developed as one. The first priority would have been the conservation and enhancement of water resources in these States. There is no reason for a drought to begin to think about WATER.

    In a land which has still many rivers and heavy rainfall, we must never forget to conserve and enhance OUR PRECIOUS WATER RESOURCES which is vital to our well-being and health.

    But what we see every day in a small country is the over-politicking of frivolous issues. As long as we have a good and wise Leader like our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia should be able to progress normally. But issues like the future of WATER is a serious matter for all generations to handle. This might be a bland and uninteresting subject but it is ESSENTIAL FOR LIFE OF ALL KINDS.

    Where is the NGO on WATER ?

    We Malaysians must now be caring and conscious of the World around us and plan for a better environment in the future for all with Water for all.. We must not expect a free lunch anymore because there was no such thing in the first place. OR CASH IS KING. We can now see where all the CASH came from – THE RAKYAT’S POCKETS !

    In a land full of rainfall and rivers, our beloved Malaysia must take the first serious steps to conserve and enhance our Water resource. This is not a laughing matter. Countries have gone to wars on this essential item, Water. Hundreds of books have been written on Water too.

    We find in every public building whether private or government, water taps are left opened to waste water. Public stand pipes or wherever water is supplied to the public free of charge. Yet our public toilet facilities are well-known as sub-standard to the World.

    Does anyone notice that our beloved Malaysia is over-governed by so many State Governments which do not deal with the big issues which will affect us all in the future like WATER ? I would assume such a Policy on Water should be at least be the responsibility of the Deputy Prime Minister or a Ministry with a special interest in WATER in the Government somewhere.

    And if at all, a Policy of the use, conservation and enhancement of Water concerning its present and future uses is vital and essential for a sound Government in modern terms.

    14 years of neglect by a corrupt BN Government, 2004-2018, has not only upset our VALUES SYSTEM IN THE PUBLIC SERVICES AND THE PRIVATE SECTOR but also affected our normal livelihood as regards water, an essential commodity for all.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Over 50 years ago, I visited Djibouti. After that visit, I knew about the importance of Water over and above anything else..

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON THE INFAMOUS SIME DARBY THE ATM FOR CROOKS.

    The destruction of the Malaysian Value System by the Singaporean Puppet and Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs by paying sky high salaries to its flunkeys in the GLCs/SOEs, ranging from RM 1 Million to RM 100 Million salaries per year before additional perks was exactly like what Lee Kuan Yew did to the human resources of Singapore through the implementation of his 2 Child Family Policy 1972 to produce Singaporean geniuses.

    On the one hand, the Malaysian Value System was totally destroyed by paying the salaries of an exclusive handful the top wages of the First World in a Third World emerging country with its weak and fragile economy which was sheer madness. On the other, Lee Kuan Yew implemented a draconian Policy which restricted procreation to only 2 Child per family with the aim of producing Singaporean geniuses like himself.

    A Policy no other World Leader dared to implement, not even Hitler. He went through great lengths to impose his will on the populace which resulted in sterilization, suicides, emigration, divorces, religious strife, income tax ways and means, mental problems, etc. At the end, no Singaporean geniuses were produced up to 2020 and Singapore now has only 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-50. Vide Singapore Government White Paper on Population 2011. But the worse of all is that young people hesitate to marry for fear of losing half their wealth to their former spouses in a quickie divorce.

    Lee Kuan Yew’s 2 Child Family Policy of 1972 was exactly the same as the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs Policy to pay its flunkeys sky high First World salaries in a Third World emerging country by destroying its Value System.

    BOTH POLICIES DISRUPTED THE VALUE SYSTEMS WHICH WERE NOT APPARENT AND THE POLICIES WERE IMPLEMENTED WITHOUT DUE CONSIDERATION OR PROPERLY THOUGHT OUT. Singapore’s belief was “Geniuses”. Malaysia’s belief was “Cash is King.” Both beliefs showed the utter ignorance of the proponents concerned.

    In the case of Singapore, the wrong Policy hit hard at its future human resources which is now with only 900,000 Chinese aged 21-50. In Malaysia, ALL WERE IMPOVERISHED BY THE CORRUPT BN GOVERNMENT BY 2018, THE RICH AND THE POOR.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON THE INFAMOUS SIME DARBY, THE ATM OF CROOKS.

    I would like to draw attention to the SIME DARBY FOUNDATION which was set up by the Sime Darby Management between 2004-2018 as a sop to please the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Leaders 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    THIS SIME DARBY FOUNDATION HAS NO PLACE AT ALL UNDER THE MALAYSIAN SUN. IT MAY EVEN BE AN ILLEGAL SET-UP DUE TO THE FACT THAT SIME DARBY’S MAJORITY SHAREHOLDER IS THE PNB, A MALAY TRUST. THE SECOND BIGGEST TRUST NEXT TO THE EPF !

    The PNB is a Malay Trust with its own guide-lines in investments and distribution of its profits within the laws.

    By having a Sime Darby Foundation which is a Trust, IT IS NOT ONLY ABSURD BUT ALSO IT IS A LOOP HOLE FOR WHOEVER IN CONTROL OF THE SIME DARBY FOUNDATION TO GIVE MONEY FREELY TO ALL AND SUNDRY. BY RIGHT ALL MONEY IN THE SIME DARBY GROUP SHOULD BE RETURNED TO THE SIME DARBY SHAREHOLDERS AND NOT SECRETLY CHANNELED TO A SIME DARBY FOUNDATION. STRICLY, THE SIME DARBY FOUNDATION SHOULD BE CLOSED DOWN FORTHWITH. THIS IS ETHICS, PROPRIETY AND SOBRIETY WITHIN THE LAW.

    It is alleged anyone can now sue Sime Darby with such an illegal loophole of creating a Trust/Foundation to BYPASS THE INTENTIONS OF ITS MAJOR SHAREHOLDER WHICH IS THE MALAY TRUST PNB.

    Another clear example of the wanton abuse and immoral use of POWER by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally elite and GLCs/SOEs ! This is daylight robbery of money belonging to the Sime Darby shareholders of which PNB is the majority shareholder, a major Malay Trust for Malays !

    How much money has been leaked out of Sime Darby has yet to be determined since its establishment of the Sime Darby Foundation ! The Foundation smells or stinks high heavens !

    GLCs/SOEs are perfect loopholes for crooks to siphon off the shareholders money legally WITHOUT ANY CONTROL. The best is to close the whole lot down – mountains of public money controlled by crooked nobodies.

    FROM THE RECENT RECORDS OF THE MALAYSIAN GLCs/SOEs, there were ACTUALLY NO CHECKS OR BALANCES IN PRACTICE.

    The GLCs/SOEs Managing Directors walloped money big time.

    Again Sime Darby with a full Board of Directors of 12 Tuns, Tan Sris and s Datuk WENT BANKRUPT AT RM 2.10 BILLION IN 2010 ! These proved that the ennobled Directors were only ornamental and decorative without any useful purpose or business knowledge. Some of them were even ex-Central Bankers or in the banking industry ! Believe it or not !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem

  14. mubarakchan Jan 16,2020 10:03 AM

    Tun

    Suddenly, the Headlines of this morning are full of goodness and wisdom as befit the leading democratic country in ASEAN which is our beloved Malaysia. THE ONLY COUNTRY IN ASEAN WHICH IS TRULY DEMOCRATIC WITHOUT MILITARY RULE, OLIGARCHS OR CRONIES – with a Government sworn to defeat Corruption with ZERO TOLERANCE and in time, reforms.

    Keep up the good works, Tun. THE WORLD KNOWS WHO IS A GOOD OR BAD FELLOW. History is the finest Arbiter of the Truth which no one can escape.

    The Headlines, thus

    1. ” CABINET DECIDED PLUS WILL NOT BE SOLD. ”

    Kudos to the Cabinet and Dato Seri Sharil Redza Ridzuan for doing the right thing. ALL THE HIGHWAYS ARE NATIONAL TREASURES AND BELONG TO THE RAKYAT – the legacy of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s 22 year Administration. The decision to restructure the System to bring down the cost to the users is the correct Policy. This wise decision can only be made by a Good and Incorruptible PH Government unlike the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs which impoverished us all, the rich and the poor.

    2. ” MALAYSIA WANTS TO BREAK UP BIG FIRMS WITHOUT HURTING STOCKS. ”

    Kudos again to the Cabinet and Khazanah for making this crucial decision of paring down the huge Khazanah Empire created by a nobody during the Dark Corrupt Age 2004-2018 with the stupid excuse of protecting Malay business and making money for the Malays.

    THIS CROOKED SLOGAN CREATED A HANDFUL OF CROOKS GETTING SALARIES FROM RM 1 MILLION TO RM 100 MILLION PER YEAR inclusive of an ordinary Singaporean who netted one of the biggest salaries ever at the Rakyat’s expense. And the salaries were further overloaded with maximum perks.

    This Crooked Policy upset the whole VALUE SYSTEM OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AFFECTING THE CIVIL SERVICE AND THE PRIVATE SECTOR. Utterly stupid. This is only partially confirmed by the Annual Reports of the UN, World Bank and IMF that over RM1.5 Trillion flowed out overseas between 2002-2018 !

    It is wisdom again from the Cabinet and Khazanah to sell off the huge Empire of subsidiary companies to the Private Sector and create new Malay and non-Malay businesses to boost the economy like Russia and China. Instead of benefitting one fellow only, the dispersal of this crooked Empire will benefit thousands in keeping with normal economic methodology.

    For example, our infamous Sime Darby has many small companies in Australia and New Zealand which were established during the hey-day of uncontrolled abandon after the Malaysian Management kicked me out of the Board in 1992. The very person who created them their jobs in Sime Darby.

    These little companies like the little travel agency in Perth in partnership with its former travel manageress who made it big by putting the Sime Darby executives to fly only with SIA or little companies in places which suited the horse racing calendar. All Sime Darby companies in Australia and New Zealand should be sold off.

    The New Zealand business was established for Sime Darby’s only expatriate on his retirement to New Zealand. Thereafter, Sime Darby sponsored Ocean Racing in New Zealand for more than 9 years and sold motorcars for others.

    IT IS INDEED GOOD NEWS THAT ALL GLCs/SOEs EMPIRES ARE TO BE PARED DOWN. IT IS ABSURD TO PUT A PERSON WHO IS NOT A CIVIL SERVANT AND OWNS NO SHARES TO TOSS AROUND BILLIONS OF RINGGITS BELONGING TO THE RAKYAT WITHOUT ANY CONTROL.

    Sime Darby went bankrupt twice at RM 1.2 Billion in 1997 and RM 2.1 Billion in 2010 by doing business with crooked Chinamen after the Malaysian Management kicked me out of the Board in 1992. I was there for 18 years with no bankruptcies or scandals.

    Poor PNB was forced to be a major shareholder by these 2 huge bankruptcies caused by the Malaysian Management which was not removed or prosecuted but stayed on to create the second huge bankruptcy.

    SIME DARBY SHOULD BE PARED DOWN TO JUST A TRADING COMPANY DEALING IN MOTORCARS AND GOODS. THERE IS NO REASON WHY SIME DARBY ENCROACHES ON PRIVATE SECTOR PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT which I consider as dicey in real terms for the REAL SHAREHOLDER AND OWNER.

    TO PARE DOWN THE HUGE GLCs/SOEs COMPANIES IS THE BEST SOLUTION TO RE-VITALISE OUR MALAYSIAN ECONOMY. LET OTHER DYNAMIC PLAYERS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY INSTEAD OF HAVING GLC/SOE MANAGING DIRECTORS WHO TAKE NO RISKS TO INCREASE EMPLOYMENT FOR THE RAKYAT AND JUST COLLECT THEIR HUGE SALARIES AND PLAY GOLF WITHOUT ANSWERABLE TO ANYONE.

    This sort of unproductive Life-style which is unbecoming of a dynamic and forward looking Society like our beloved Malaysia, must be VERBOTEN in the interest of COMMON SENSE AND THE RAKYAT. This sort of Life-style destroys our VALUE SYSTEM IN THE CIVIL SERVICE AND THE PRIVATE SECTOR – 2004-2018.

    My heartiest congratulations to the Cabinet, Khazanah and Dato Seri Sharil Redza Ridzuan for making the BEST ANS WISEST POLICY TO PUT THE UGLY GLCs/SOEs BACK TO NORMALCY. What is better than this ?

    Not forgetting that GLCs/SOEs were a creation of authoritarian Lee Kuan Yew and were mistakenly adopted by Russia and China which now regret. China has 100 GLCs/SOEs Chinese on the run.

    WITH THIS POLICY ON THE GLCs/SOEs, THE BURSA CAN ONLY GO UP AND UP WITH THE NEW PLAYERS FROM AT HOME AND ABROAD. Where there is honey, there are the investors ! The immediate creation of many Malay and non-Malay investors instead of being lorded over by the very few or just a handful of undeserving exclusive Managing Directors culled from NO WHERE without real records of making money.

    This Policy is the finest to the ears of all investors around the World.

    SINGAPORE INVESTORS ARE YOU LISTENING ?

    3. ” FOREIGN FUNDS FLOWING BACK TO MALAYSIA DESPITE POLITICAL HEADWINDS. ”

    There are no political headwinds of note in our beloved Malaysia today.

    Malaysia is now governed by a Good and Incorruptible PH Government led by our indefatigable Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side – a government of the Old and the Young, the Good and the Great.

    Fake news about headwinds were conjured by the Opposition or NGOs of no merit of naysayers, detractors, morons, treasonous ennobled Senior Civil Servants, tycoons, fellow travellers, crypto singaporeans and communists, swallows, spies, ducks, Man from the Moon or Mars etc.

    Malaysia stands strong, united and proud as one of the 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia since 9 May 2018. Malaysia is the only truly democratic country in ASEAN with no military, oligarchs, cronies etc in Power. The biggest choke point in the World due to our vast geographical location. Singapore where are you ?

    Our weather is equable with no disasters so far. We remain humble and help and respect others always. For ourselves we want no foreign interference in our build-up for better things. We want to be friends of all, enemy of none in this World.

    With our good blessings, we build ourselves up to help ourselves and others as well. AND ALWAYS REMAIN HUMBLE AND COMPASSIONATE unlike some fallen giant.

    WHO DOES NOT WANT TO INVEST IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA NOW – THE SWITZERLAND OF ASIA ?

    4. ” CULTURAL CELEBRATIONS SHOULD BE REJOICED BY ALL MALAYSIANS. CABINET DECIDES. ”

    Only the Man from the Moon or Mars will disagree to this wise exhortation by the Good and Incorruptible PH Government.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. There is much wisdom and common sense in the Cabinet led by you with DSAI and the Team by your side. PLEASE KEEP UP THE GOOD AND WISE WORKS WHICH CANNOT BE COPIED BY OTHERS.

    Caution:

    My previous remark on getting school children to toil in paddy-fields at school.. is NOT meant to be taken literally, in case some bloggers think this was the case. It is a METAPHOR. That’s all (!!!)

    phew…

  16. twinpeaks Jan 12,2020 4:21 PM

    If a future Prime Minister again erroneously appoints ME as his Education Minister, I would also change the way English Language is taught at every Malaysian school, at both the primary and secondary levels.

    No longer will they spend enormous amount of time on learning the Grammar of the English Language, but just the minimum for kids to understand the difference between a noun and a verb, an adjective from an adverb. That should not take more than a few hours or days. They will NOT be drilled endlessly on forming perfect sentences with flawless grammar. This is ridiculous! They are not being trained to become future linguistic professors, not even interpreters.

    What MY new schools will be teaching the kids are reading various books and works, starting from the basic fairy tales up to the most complex literature. Every day. In my case, by the time I was fifteen, I had already read five Shakespeare plays and acted out several characters at the 500-seater school theater. That was in England, at Perse.

    I did my primary school at Sacred Heart Kota Kinabalu (a good school), learned a lot of English grammar and could hardly utter a sentence in English without feeling conscious of making a grammatical mistake. Over here, they teach you how NOT to make any mistake. That’s how I was taught at a Malaysian primary school.

    But in England, they couldn’t care less if you speak like an unintelligible Liverpudlian or a with a polished Upper Class accent. Because the emphasis is not on language per se, but on the ability to converse your thoughts to your audience. Mistakes are all over the place, and it is okay. Encouraged even. Kids go to school to make mistakes as much as possible. That is called proper learning.

    So, in short, I would turn the table on how English is taught in this country. That way, EVERY future Malaysian will be able to converse more fluently in English even with just ten years of education.

  17. twinpeaks Jan 12,2020 12:36 PM

    Also Tun, if one day a Prime Minister makes the unfortunate error in handing the Education Minister portfolio to ME, I will ensure the following (which my late father had introduced when he was the Sabah Agriculture minister in Berjaya era).

    I will ensure that from 7am to 8am, every school child at Primary and Secondary levels, will all have to toil on the soils of purpose-built rice fields within the compound of every school. Before they start the usual classes. Every school day. Schools are not meant to be mere play grounds, they are primarily meant to be training grounds for growing up kids.

    Too many young graduates in this country are lazy. They expect to earn a lot of money straightaway if they go into the private sector, without any experience. And the rest expect the government to provide them with civil service jobs. They are not willing to work to the maximum and have no idea how to build their own future.

    In the end, the nation suffers through a sub-standard workforce. One with very low work ethics. So beware, future Prime Ministers.

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENTS ON SPORTS

    I have watched carefully why Lin Dan in his prime and Momota were head and shoulders above the rest. They were super-fit and focussed on the task at hand. They were so super fit that they could arrive at the requisite spot with moments to spare to hit the shuttle-cock accordingly. This little advantage put them ahead of their rivals all the time with ease. An example of all the hard work and training to put them at the top by those concerned.

    During the Dark Age of our beloved Malaysia 2004-2018, there were allegations that our top badminton players were involved in night clubs, Lamborghinis and property developers who wanted goodies from those in Power. This was the reason that Malaysia never won a Gold Olympic medal in Badminton. Like everything else in Life, normal ethics, standards, propriety, integrity, morals, etc must apply.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    HOW MANY MALAYSIANS ARE AWARE THAT THE GOOD AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT HAS DONE THE RIGHT THINGS AND HAS MOST OF THE SUCCESSES FEOM CURRENT EVENTS GOING FOR THEM ?

    We forget the naysayers, the detractors, the morons, the treasonous ennobled Senior Civil Servants, the tycoons, the crypto singaporeans or communists, the fellow travellers, the swallows, the spies, the ducks etc.

    Here is the BIG list of successes achieved by the PH Government as led by you Tun with DSAI and the Team by your side.

    1. The ousting of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs is no mean feat.

    Our beloved Malaysia was on her way to be enslaved forever with the 50 volume Lee Kuan Yew crafted TPPA/CPTPP Malaysia/Malays Killer Agreement already signed by the BN crooks. China was willing to lend and lend with little Singapore embedded in the mind-sets of the BN crooks to steer our enslaved beloved Malaysia along their prescribed course. Man proposes. God disposes.

    2. The Transition of Power was Peaceful and Stable.

    3. Apart from only two or three loose cannons and one or two cryptos in the Cabinet, it has been smooth sailing for our beloved Malaysia. All the Ministers contributed as a TEAM.

    4. The Good Governance Template was set by successive Good BN Government from 1957-2003. This survived even there was total neglect with moral destruction during the Age of Darkness 2004-2018 with two unqualified Prime Ministers in place. The immediate task of instilling back ethics, morals, discipline, standards, service, propriety, normality etc will take time. AS YOU RIGHTLY SAID IT IS THE MIND-SET

    As my mother often told me,’ IT TAKES TIME TO BE GOOD. BUT YOU CAN BE BAD IN A JIFFY !’

    5. All things being equal, with Trump going back of Uncle Sam’s Post Cold War spiel 1948-1989, ‘Globalization. Free Trade. Human Rights’ which benefitted the BRICS immensely but not its tiny ally, Singapore which took the full hit of a MULTI-LATERAL WORLD OF TRADE from 1990-2020.

    So far, all mega moves by Trump have benefitted our beloved Malaysia. BUT TUN DR DAIM ZAINUDDIN WARNED THAT A DOWNTURN IN THE WORLD’S ECONOMY IS POSSIBLE. Forewarned is forearmed.

    6. it is very important to have a good set of clean books in any Government. You have the right YB in the Ministry of Finance which now spends RM 1 and gets back at least 90 sens (93 cts in squeaky clean Singapore) instead of only 50 cents.

    7. YB SADDIQ HAS PRODUCED THE BEST ACHIEVEMENTS SO FAR eg. THE FOOTBALL AND HOCKEY TEAMS AND IN BADMINTON, ONE SINGLES PLAYER AND ONE DOUBLES PAIR.

    But those officials below him lack the know-how to build on their charges. IT IS THE MIND-SET AGAIN TUN ! It is the application of SPORTS MEDICINE WHICH MALAYSIAN SPORTSMEN OR WOMEN LACK.

    1. A professional approach to be well-funded by the likes of SIME DARBY which used to lose billions of ringgits by doing business with crooked Chinamen.

    2. The selection of candidates of proper size and intellect which could only be found in schools or universities.

    3. Sports medicine should be applied at the very beginning. There was a Sports Academy once upon a time.

    4. A proper professional approach to develop more than one team in football or hockey. These teams should participate all over the World at Sime Darby’s expense.

    5. ALL MALAYSIAN SPORTS MEN OR WOMEN MUST BE SUPER-FIT AND DISCIPLINED AT LEAST NEAR COMPETITION TIME. Fit enough to run 3 Km every day and have a high haemoglobin by training at Genting high altitudes. Because with physical fatigue the brain requires more oxygen to the brain cells which decide the shots. Even today. our Malaysian badminton players failed to win at the last and final set with 18-15 in their favour – not fit, no oxygen to the brain.

    6. A dietician and a doctor should be employed by each Sports Association part time or full time. ALL OUR SPORTS MEN OR WOMEN ARE UNFIT WITH LACK OF RICH PROTEIN FOODS, PROPER EXERCISE AND MENTAL FOCUS.

    7. Here are true life examples.

    a). Malaya lost the Thomas Cup in 1959 for the very first time to Indonesia because our No. 1 singles player took the night out at the Federal Hotel the night before his crucial match with the great Ferry Sonneville. Lack of discipline, purpose and physical fitness cost Malaya dear.

    b) The Danes used to complain about the hot and humid climate when they played in the Tropics. They soon realised it was the MIND-SET. Now they win with no problem on equal terms eg. barracking crowds and all.
    They overcame this negativity by being super-fit and MENTALLY FOCUSSED

    c) The Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan badminton players are now World class because they took a professional approach over 10 years ago by copying China. Lee Kuan Yew took the cheating way by buying 4th Rate players from China over 20 years ago with money and citizenship.

    SPECIALLY FOR YB SADDIQ. You are lucky to have the football and hockey teams to build on. All these fellows require is super-fitness, discipline, good nutritious foods, proper motivation and practice around the World courtesy of Sime Darby.

    You have two world class players in badminton, Singles and Doubles, thus,

    i) Lee in the Singles is overweight by at least 1-2 lbs. He should do more leg work by running 3 Km daily. Eat a protein diet of red meat to build up to a competition for more red cells in his system. And competition all over the World. See how the Danes play badminton – SUPER FIT AND SERIOUS – NEVER SMILED because they are out to kill to win. Lee has the killer instinct.

    2) The Malaysian doubles pair with one fellow always smiling. He is overweight too. The Danes, the Chinese, the Indonesians, the Japanese, the Koreans do not smile. They are on the court to kill to win.

    This particular Malaysian pair has the skills BUT NOT FIT, ABSOLUTELY LACK OF PRACTICE AT INTERNATIONAL LEVELS, WITH ONE FELLOW SMILING ALL THE TIME. Smiling distracts focus and gesticulations more so to distract from the task at hand. It is TIME THIS PAIR WITH POTENTIAL GETS DOWN TO THE BRASS TACKS AND KILL TO WIN FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA – super fit, no smiles, serious, and mentally motivated to kill to win for our beloved Malaysia. Then, Sime Darby would have spent money on a worthwhile basis.

    YB SADDIQ you are fortunate to have three badminton players to build on to win back the Thomas Cup and some Olympic Gold Medals.

    PLEASE DO NOT BE LIKE THAT FELLOW WHO WAS IN THE OLYMPIC COUNCIL MALAYSIA FOR 25 YEARS OR MORE AND COULD NOT CONVINCE THE OLYMPICS TO INCLUDE SQUASH AS A SPORTS EVEN THOUGH MOGULS WERE INCLUDED AND SQUASH WAS PLAYED BY AT LEAST 40 COUNTRIES FOR 100 YEARS. With lazy fellows like these Malaysia lost many Olympic Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals – A TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE TO DATO NICOLE DAVID and her colleagues.

    FINALLY, ALL SUCCESSFUL SPORTSMEN OR WOMEN MUST BE HANDSOMELY REWARDED WITH MONEY, JOBS, SCHOLARSHIPS, CARS, AFFORDABLE HOUSING, ETC FOR A LIFE TIME. Hopefully the universities have Sports Medicine in the curriculum for degrees.

    Tun, sports is a celebration of our Malaysian Youths who are symbols of our INTEGRITY, MORALS AND DYNAMISM FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR BELOVED MALSYSIA. I have yet to come across a crooked sports man or woman.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem Round pegs for round holes. Square pegs for square holes !

    Tun

    Whilst conversing with TWIN PEAKS, an idea suddenly came into my mind which is the ORCHID TRADE OF THE WORLD, thus.

    Singapore’s Leadership has always been trying to diddle our beloved Malaysia from all angles, back and front. Here is an Idea which Singapore’s Leadership should seriously consider if they are not bland and uninspiring.

    IT IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PROPER AND SERIOUS WORLD MARKET FOR ORCHIDS THROUGH PROPER QUALITY PRODUCTION, MARKETING, TRANSPORTATION TO THE END USER IN THW WEST AT GOOD PRICES WHICH SINGAPORE HAS THE SKILLS AND GUMPTION TO DO. A new multi-billion dollar business project at source. A steady source of revenue for Singapore.

    First, this should be considered an ASEAN project beginning with Malaysia and later expanded to all points of the compass.

    Second, Singapore’s associates/locals establish orchid farms anywhere suitable in the land.

    Third, Singapore establishes a new and World’s Best Business in Singapore – A World Class FLOWERS Auction Market in all sorts of flowers with the partnership and assistance of The Netherlands Flower Market and participating countries or associates.

    Fourth, a World’s Best Flower Complex should be sited next to the Changi or Seletar Airport.

    Fifth, a proper digit should be employed to deliver.

    Sixth, this World’s Best Flower Auction Market should extend to the West Coast of North America, the whole of Asia, Australasia. North and East Africa and the whole of the Middle East. The market should be the whole wide World including Russia. As it is, China’s flowers market is rudimentary.

    Seventh, PROPER ORGANISATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS.

    LET US ALL HOPE THE SINGAPOREAN LEADERSHIP SEES THE BROAD STROKES OF THIS NEW WORLD’S BEST FLOWER MARKET IN SINGAPORE and leave their obsession with our beloved Malaysia behind. Live and let live.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. The whole World lives on IDEAS as you so rightly exhorted us.

    Eighth, ALL WILL BENEFIT by organising a disparate flower market

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT FOR TWIN PEAKS.

    By talking to you, it dawned on me that not only Kota Kinabalu but the whole of Sabah is the finest holiday destination of the World on par with Pulau Pinang which State Government with the Singaporean Mind-set is quickly destroying its natural beauty as the Pearl of the Orient.

    In fact, each Malaysian State is beautiful and full of heritage attractions for tourists if carefully built-up and promoted. Our folks seemed only to like Perth and Oxford Street, London. However, after 2 weeks they hankered to go home.

    Pre-war Honolulu with Charlie Chan, the detective, was nothing. The whole glamour was created by Hollywood which brought in the white sand to splash on the old Waikiki beach. Present day Singapore copied much from Hawaii as the Chairman of the Singapore Tourist Board, a sister-in-law of Lee Kuan Yew, was from Honolulu until she retired.

    In fact I noticed the absence of orchid gardens in each of our wonderful States as tourist attractions. Superb botanical gardens should be established in every State for the appreciation and edification of all. This is our heritage in our wonderful beloved Malaysia. A botanical garden does not cost much. It is beautiful. It is clean with greenery. It is healthy. And yet, our folks seemed to be still in somnolence in Vision, Innovation and Creativity.

    AS OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD URGED US ‘IDEAS IS KING. NOT MONEY.’

    See how hard Singapore is trying WITH PLASTIC FLOWERS ALL ROUND AND CHARGED AN OUT OF THE WORLD PRICE TO VIEW THEM ! It is alleged they were copy-cats concerning an airport in the Gulf. You cannot beat the Singaporeans for not trying. Yet, in our beloved Malaysia, the rarest orchids grow on trees in Sabah and Sarawak. The World’s tourists will flock to these places just to view them. It is never to late. It is never to small with any World class attraction which our beloved Malaysia has many as tourists attractions.

    ORCHIDS SHOULD FLOURISH AND PLENTIFUL IN MALAYSIA, NOT ONLY AS AN ATTRACTION BUT ALSO AN INDUSTRY. THIS SHOULD BE ENCOURIAGED BY THE GOVERNMENT AS A HORTI-CULTURAL PURSUIT in keeping with Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin recent comment on the subject.

    Hopefully, your wish will be fulfilled, TWIN PEAKS as Senator representing Tourism in our World’s Best Orchid Flowers Gardens which is the whole of our beloved Malaysia. Let each State competes to be not only the Best but the World’s Best.

    As of today, there is not a squeak on this rich and natural resource, the orchids of our beautiful and wonderful Malaysia. All we see and hear about are the sad and ugly revelations of BN crooks in courts every day. Our lives are abnormal and not balanced.

    IT’S THE MIND-SETS AS OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD EXHORTED US ALL THE TIME.

    TWIN PEAKS. IN 2002, WHEN I FIRST MET YOUR TS UNCLE, I SUGGEST TO HIM TO TURN THE WHOLE OF THE KOTA KINABALU WATERFRONT INTO A WORLD CLASS FLORIDA TYPE BOULEVARD INSTEAD OF HAVING A WET MARKET OF NO VALUE.

    Malaysian Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Let our good FM make a small provision for each Malaysian State to start their World Class and World Best Orchid Gardens in the next Supplementary Budget from the savings arising from no more padding of Government Tenders by the BN CROOKS ! Then, not only Malaysia is one of 4 small important countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia but ALSO THE FINEST HOLIDAY IN THE WORLD – TO COPY SINGAPORE, MALAYSIA IS WORLD’S BEST HOLIDAY DESTINATION NEXT TO NONE.

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    It is a small World. I met your Uncle Tan Sri Musa Aman when he was the Sabah State Minister in charge of Finance in 2002 and later his son. As I often said ‘In Malaysia, we are either related or good friends. We cannot run away very far. ‘

    I see no reason for you not to be a Senator from Sabah at any time. As we can all see, real Malay elites are very scarce on the ground and our beloved Malaysia requires thousands to show the Way, not the Fakes, Copy-cats and Plagiarists.

    I did not become a politician but found my calling as a socio-economist specialising in the Restructuring of the biggest Companies in the land. It was tough but rewarding in terms of reviving all these companies. None of the subsequent owners asked me how to administer each and every one of them. They soon ran the new steads into the ground. Such is Life in our beloved Malaysia.

    I wish you well in your proposed undertakings, TWIN PEAKS. The country requires more of your kind. It does not matter to whom you are related to because actions speak louder than words.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Let all have a bite of the cherry unlike the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

  23. twinpeaks Jan 10,2020 8:13 PM

    For Mubarakchan.

    Thank you for the compliment. Here is a brief response from me.

    I have to be very careful of what I say in that matter as I may ruffle some feathers in Sabah. It is not that I am not interested taking part in politics, but the situation in Sabah is such that if you are related to some hated figures, you are essentially an outcast. Two of those figures are my uncles (TS Musa Aman and Dato Anifah Aman). Furthermore, I may ruffle some feathers on the Peninsula with my frank views on the Chinese and Malays especially; even more so if Tun backs me, which I very much doubt.

    The last words to me from my dad before he departed was, “I want you to enter politics”. Coming from a former Deputy CM, that’s a pretty heavy request. It sounded more like an order.

    Anyway, I have a business to run full-time. But I wouldn’t mind a stint as a Senator one day, and perhaps also serve in some capacity in a future cabinet. My political ambition is very low, but I am still with Tun and his PPBM. Hope that answers your question.

  24. mubarakchan Jan 10,2020 4:22 PM

    Tun

    Here is a self-explanatory news item from an important organisation The Patriot. Legal implications concerning this development have arisen which have added to the controversy. It is a shame that the top Leaders of the BN Government 2004-2018 behaved in this way.

    From the President, Brigadier General (Rtd) Datuk Mohd. Arshad Raji.

    Quote ” WHAT IS OF VITAL IMPORTANCE IS FOR ALL MALAYSIANS TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT VERY SERIOUS CRIMES HAVE BEEN COMMITTED BY TOP LEADERS OF THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION AND SHAMEFULLY ABETTED BY TOP GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS. WE NEED TO QUICKLY BRING THE SHAMEFUL PAST TO A CLOSE AND HEAL WOUNDS, QUIT THE ETHNO-RELIGIOUS POLITICKING AND FOCUS ON NATION BUILDING. ”

    ” LATHEEFA AND MACC’S ACTION SHOULD BE COMMENDED, SAYS THE PATRIOT ”

    Because of the legal implications which have now arisen, I have no comments.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

  25. mubarakchan Jan 10,2020 1:35 PM

    Tun

    FOR TWIN PEAKS.

    You are a great son of Sabah and Malaysia. Well-educated. Well-spoken. Well-poised with courtesies. All in all, a properly balanced and normal gentleman who should be in the service of the Public.

    How come you only appear here in this distinguished Blog recently, TWIN PEAK ? Where have you been ? Sometime ago, you mentioned something being connected with a Sabahan political party. Then, nothing more.

    How come people like Peter Lo and the baldy with a moustache ranked better than you ? Especially, very Sabahans are qualified to be in Politics. Are you the MISSING LINK MISSED OUT BY OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD FOR HIGHER THINGS ?

    When my Advisers who knew better kept advising me to keep out or Politics without telling me the reason why, I was duly puzzled. There were certain facts which I myself were aware of eg. my background, not a thought to make money out of Politics etc. As time went by, I discovered all MCA officials without exception at least up to the 21st Century became mighty rich on their retirement. One MCA fellow bought a bank whilst in office, on top of a humongous monopoly which he had for a life-time inclusive of multiple cheap Government properties given to him. Not including his requests for special tenders and building condos in restricted areas. The whole MCA lot had a bite of the cherry. They were the first but not the last.

    As for religion, I treat this as strictly a personal matter like sex.

    As for PAS and DAP, the former caters to a certain group of people and as for the latter which is now under the test of POWER AND CORRUPTION, its destiny only the future can tell without the huge shadow of Lee Kuan Yew as its source of inspiration – a giant with feet of clay.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Our present problem is the dire lack of real and good Malay elite – We require thousands. Not fakes, copy-cats and plagiarists ! See how those 2 chaps turned out to be FAKES with absolute POWER ! We all nearly DIE DIE as we Malaysians say.

    How many Malaysians noticed that billions and billions of ringgits were wasted between 2004-2018 ? And not a single sen to buy new fighter jets or helicopters !

  26. mubarakchan Jan 10,2020 9:27 AM

    Tun

    In these early days of 2020, the prospects of a better political and socio-economy seem bright for our beloved Malaysia as led by the Good and Incorruptible Government with you and DSAI and the Team by your side.

    A scintillating headline from the Singapore Business Times today, thus

    ” HIGHER OIL PRICES TO BOOST MALAYSIA’S GROWTH, HIT SINGAPORE. BARCLAYS ”

    Barclays went further, quote, ” A RISE OF US$ 10 PER BARREL WOULD TRANSLATED TO A RISE OF O.1 PERCENTAGE POINT IN ECONOMIC GROWTH ACCORDING TO ITS ESTIMATES. ” Unquote. My calculation is RM 6 Billion more on the same basis.

    The die is cast for Malaysia to do the good things in 2020 with the US GE bearing down upon us in November. Trump will do whatever he can to keep his home fires burning. This will snowball into international political turmoil which will bubble up in the most sensitive region in the World – the Middle East with its vast oil reserves. Other commodities prices will be affected as well. To keep the Mid-West soya farmers happy, Trump has to keep soya prices high which also keep palm oil prices high. He is going to force China to buy more US agricultural products as a leverage to his intended electoral success during the Phase 2 of the US-China Trade negotiations to come. He will play pucks with the Chinese. The rest of the World becomes a yo-yo with the worst bearing down on tiny Singapore with its out-dated Socio-economic Model of Lee Kuan Yew’s 20th Century.

    It is good, very good that our beloved Malaysia and her Good and Incorruptible Government is in place finally to take advantage of World political and socio-economic uncertainties with its ebb and flow. Every Ringgit spent is precious to us, the Rakyat. No more 10,000 Rolex watches just for kicks or as a sop to the wife for coming home late after 19 holes of golf !

    Our Good and Incorruptible Government given the opportunity not only push for some growth through a Supplementary Budget but also to strengthen our traditional pillars of growth which have been weakened by corruption of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    The key industries so corrupted and affected are the banks, the construction and the O & G industries – areas where there were unfettered expansion to over-capacity due to corruption to break rules.

    Another piece of good housekeeping concerning good and transparent governance.

    In the whole Wide World, our beloved Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is the only person given this wonderful opportunity to do the right thing with a clean slate for a country. Where else but Malaysia ?

    My skin still tingles at the thought of how close our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat were to extinction and slavery arising from the fact that the Lee Kuan Yew wicked TPPA/CPTPP to enslave forever by tiny Singapore, was already signed and unlimited spending planned for mega-projects with China and Singapore.

    How could it be that the corrupt BN Leadership between 2004-2018 were not aware of the fact that the Governments of Singapore and China knew all about the BN Leadership like the back of their hands ?

    If the BN had won, through the ratified TPPA/CPTPP, tariff free Singaporean re-labelled goods flood into Malaysia with the BN Leadership in its little Singaporean pocket. China will lend big bucks and do mega projects. Inflation jumps. More money printed. Ringgit RM 5 or more to US$ 1. All wages rise to keep all happy. Our beloved Malaysia will be gone forever like those rich South American countries before World War II. Stupid. Our beloved Malaysia becomes a broken State controlled by tiny Singapore with funds lent by China. The Malaysian Chinese become Chinese middle-men again. But this time for Singapore and financed by Singapore. Stupid.

    THAT DESCRIPTION OF WHAT WOULD HAPPENED IF THE CORRUPT BN WON ON 9 MAY 2018. A terrible story of Stupidity, Crookedness, Greed and Slavery after the collapse of our beloved Malaysia’s SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST. All the corrupt South American wealth now sits in Switzerland. Later generations of their descendants just drift around the watering places of Europe doing nothing. Is this what any real Malaysian wants ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. In you we all TRUST. We are still waiting for Hainanese HBT630 to give his explanation why he called you OLD SHIT !

  27. twinpeaks Jan 9,2020 11:38 PM

    For Mubarakchan.

    The problem with people (well most) in this country is that they are too fanatical about their religions. Well, this is a big problem, because it does affect their thinking. They became irrational.

    I celebrate all the religions because they are harmless. I enter all the places of worship, even just to look. I even bought a tiny Buddha statue once as a decoration, but I have since lost it (!). I love Christmas the most.

    If this country wants to become a fully-developed country, then religion must be restricted to the home. Pray at home. That’s what I do. I rarely go the mosque, to be honest. But I pray daily. Religion is between you and your god. It is not be boasted about in public, and certainly not be used in politics.

    If I had my way, PAS would have been banned a long time ago. So would DAP, for that matter… for being too fanatical on things Chinese.

  28. mubarakchan Jan 9,2020 11:05 PM

    Tun

    The Cabinet has stressed the importance of the celebrations of iconic festivals by the non-Malay communities which are not religious but in relation to the changing of a Season or the coming of the New Lunar Year and the passing of the old. Headlines which confirm the Cabinet’s wise Policy appeared in the media today, thus

    ” DPM. CNY DECOR NOT AN ISSUE. ”

    ” CABINET UNANIMOUS SCHOOL’S CNY DECORATIONS TO STAY ”

    ” DO NOT CREATE TENSIONS – CABINET ”

    It is political mischief by those who should know better which should not be tolerated by not only the Cabinet but also by the Rakyat who are not fools to be hoodwinked by mischief makers.

    Today, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat stand proud, strong and peaceful in a World full of death, injuries and destruction to innocent men, women and children. This fact maybe attributed to the wisdom, courage and brilliance of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side. They cannot function without the full support of all Rakyat who love stability, peace and harmony which now exist in our beloved land.

    To get more benefits for all the Rakyat, mischievous acts by irresponsible individuals should be smacked down swiftly and quickly before these grow into cancerous growths of mischief causing irreparable damage. There should be ZERO tolerance to mischief in areas where COMMONALITY LIKE THE CELEFBRATIONS OF ICONIC FESTIVALS BY DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES WHICH ARE NOT RELIGIOUS BUT TRADITIONAL, HOLD SWAY FOR CENTURIES PAST.

    The Government must begin telling the story of the unique success of the New and Incorruptible Government in ousting the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs since 9 May 2018.

    Telling ‘good’ stories about themselves is part and parcel of any Government. Take the case of Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore with its humongous Ministry of Information for a tiny one-street town. Can we accuse Lee Kuan Yew of furthering his interests or Singapore’s interests using the resources of the State ? Or the spying on all who came within his Policy of holding on to Power ?

    The Good and Incorruptible Government should not be too humble with self-consciousness.

    Look at Lee Kuan Yew quotable quotes like, ” We are a rugged Society,” or “Singapore hits above its weight” or “Singapore Navy next best to the US Navy” or “If there are riots, we must grow barnacles in our hearts and not open our doors to them” or “Singapore’s Passport is the most Powerful in the World”. He could not care two hoots what others think of tiny Singapore which now paya and pays for adopting his 20th Century Economic Model with all the b…..t. As history is the finest Arbiter of the Truth, Lee Kuan Yew is now found to have feet of clay !

    It is time for all Malaysians to realise that the Nation we all have built on from its very beginnings right through to the New and Incorruptible Government led by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side is REAL, SUSTAINABLE AND FOREVER with the exception of the Dark Period 2004-2018 when Malaysia was led by unqualified chaps who only knew self-indulgence and self-immolation at the Rakyat’s expense. “Cash is King” was all that these gents thought of.

    MALAYSIA IS ONE ON FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA since 9 May 2018. Therefore, it is within our means by giving full support to the PH Government to make all sustainable and doable. This is not a tall order but a simple overlay of common sense and normal work with emphasis on normal production, education and leisure. This cannot be more straightforward or simple.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as alwqys. No problem. Non-religious festivities and sports are commonalities for unifying all communities. These should be protected, sustained and expanded not only by the Government but all Rakyat concerned. The first step on a journey of 10,000 km !

    It is always good to read about new ventures or enterprises in the National Interest which benefit all the Rakyat, thus

    1. ” FGV ON RIGHT PATH TO NEW FUTURE ”

    2. ” FGV WANTS TO BE MAJOR PLAYER IN AGRICULTURE AND FOOD INDUSTRIES. ”

    If I remember correctly, it was Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin who brought up this topic late in 2019. This is the Way to go. This is the Way for FGV to build up a humongous food industry as the eventual Nestle of Asia via Nestle of ASEAN/MALASIA in meat and comestible foods.

    It is for all to note the fantastic opportunity for FGV to begin business for Australia and New Zealand at a time the former needs as much capital and other support as required which were caused by bush fires.

    Seriously, FGV should incorporate FGV Food Enterprises S/B with notable venture partners like Sime Darby and LTAT. The former has a reputation of losing billions of ringgits to Chinese crooks and does business with small-time former employees in Perth and Auckland whilst the latter did the same just before the 2018 GE. But for the very first time, let these businesses of Malay Trusts invest in something meaningful and profitable which the FGV Food Enterprises envisages.

    Kudos to the present CEO !

    1. The first objective should be the import of cattle and sheep for abattoirs and meat from Australia and New Zealand. At least 20% of the market to begin with. From this little step, one day this will be an elephant.

    2. Comestible food products like potatoes and others could be traded.

    3. Form an information advisory on the ground in Australia and New Zealand in conjunction with Malaysian graduates. And begin to send FELDA students to Australia and New Zealand to study husbandry and horti-culture. Develop FELDA’s own human resources now. No other subjects should be encouraged.

    4. Explore and develop with Middle Eastern traders the markets, from Morocco to Pakistan and Bangla Desh, for cattle and sheep with an aim of achieving a niche first and expand later. Muslim China should be a huge market with its 80 Million Muslims. Remember in business all must make money. There is no such thing as one person takes all unlike the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    5. Naturally, 20% of the market in Malaysia should be FGV’s.

    6. Get a good General to kick-start the food business.

    7. The ultimate aim for this FGV Food Enterprises is to make money and to provide full employment to those concerned with FGV peoples.

    8. I envisage 4 focal points at Penang, Port Klang, Tanjong Pelepas and Kuantan which should serve China in time.

    9. The capital for this fantastic project should be at least RM 150 Million rising to RM 500 Million with 51% FGV, 30% LTAT, 19% Sime Darby.

    10. A professional feasibility study should be carried out within 1 year on a business which has an elastic market and inelastic prices for the products.

    11. Bank borrowings should be less than 15% at all times because its literally a cash market.

    12. The right employees should be employed from the beginning to create a work culture of FGV’s own with the right General – not one who plays 19 hole golf.

    13. Avoid holding landed assets in Australia and New Zealand which tie up precious capital. It is the velocity of money which will create FGV’s success. Avoid owning cattle and sheep farms anywhere. Let others take these risks. Decades ago, I learnt 5,000 acres sustain 1,000 sheep in Western Australia.

    14. FGV will be learning from Day 1 in the business which has no end.

    15. To control the food business, find out and stop the pilfering in materials, money and time.

    16. Canning of FGVs own foods will be the ultimate aim with its established markets.

    17. From the slowest business in the World which is old palms, FGV becomes a Trader. Study how Nestle works and copy the good only. You will find a good and clean set of books is a MUST in any business.

    Here are 2 important headlines today. Just the sort of information for the Good and Incorruptible Government as led by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side., thus

    ” CENTRAL BANKS LOW ON AMMUNITION. WARNS CARNEY ”

    ” ECONOMISTS FEAR US IS APPROACHING LIMIT OF MONETARY POLICY ”

    Forewarned is forearmed.

    The World did not recover from the humongous crash of October 2008 Since then, the QEs have buoyed up all the markets, capital and commodities around the World. But manufacturing and construction activities remained in the doldrums.

    In June 2006, Greenspan said on his retirement briefing to the Senate that there was some fizz in the property markets in California and Florida – just before the sub-prime crash of 2008. Since then, the Western Capitalist System has not recovered. As Carney warned the Central Banks are running out of ammunition due to the politics of Trump in the White House.

    With the current complications of disruption in normal trade arising from the US-China Trade War and the Assassination of a top Iranian Leader by Trump, the year 2020 will be fraught with instabilities and uncertainties. No one can predict what will happen. No one can predict how this is all going to end.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. In you we all TRUST.

    Kudos to Latheefa Koya the Head of the MACC for her presentation in the National Interest and the well-being of the Rakyat, the following important headline from the Singapore Straits Times, thus

    ” MALAYSIA SHOWS RECORDINGS OF FORMER PM NAJIB’S EFFORTS TO SEEK HELP ON 1MDB. ”

    ” TAKE CHARGE, DARLING ” appeared in another media report.

    Malaysia must retrieve back all the stolen money even if it takes 100 years.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    Here is a noteworthy headline today from a Caring and Incorruptible Government, thus,

    ” MAS TO AVOID CONFLICT IN AIRSPACE IN IRAN. ”

    When the MH17 was shot down over war-torn Ukraine at a time when the World knew War was happening, the Minister of Transport of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs was alleged to have been asked why the plane was shot down and he was alleged to have replied, ‘ NO ONE ASKED US NOT TO FLY THERE ‘. As a result, over 200 innocent lives were lost ! Another black mark for our beloved Malaysia. If the cap fits, wear it.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. IT IS THE QUALIFIED PRIME MINISTER WHO COUNTS IN CRISIS !

    ADDENDUM 2 TO MY COMMENT FOR A GREAT MALAYSIA.

    Whatever Policies which eventually are proposed and implemented should also be made in conjunction with the Opposition in a bi-partisanship manner. These Policies should be treated as sacred or sacrosanct to all Governments to come in the future. Any deviation from such Policies should be treated with suspect by all especially the electorate. There should be no room for hanky-panky by anyone.

    Our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat is a mini-United Nations. Let us create a living example for all to bolster our current status as one of the 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia. And we mean business on par with the rest of the World. Unlike Singapore, even when we are there, we remain humble.

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT FOR A GREAT MALAYSIA.

    My humble apologies for leaving out one of the most vital and essential Policies. This should be No. 11

    ” No. 11. The Policy to ensure that Malaysia’s food production arising from its horti-cultural activities inclusive of husbandry and the re-vitalisation of Malaysia’s long coast line for sea food products, is recognised as important for the Rakyat. Not only that the price of RICE will always be kept low and affordable to the Rakyat. Recently, Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin brought this important area of our economy for attention. He was right. Because in the great countries of Japan and Switzerland, the rural areas are heavily subsidised to keep them alive and dynamic by the Government in keeping with their historical traditions and cultural heritage. “

    Tun

    Not only have the prices of our key export commodities escalated at the beginning of 2020, the opportunity for you as our beloved Prime Minister and Leader has arrived a second time for you to mete out Policies for our beloved Malaysia according to the Constitution for all time. Unlike a country which is the most powerful in the World, a country which turned from Peace to War with destruction.

    We Malaysians through you and your Leadership have the opportunity as Peaceful, Tolerant and Compassionate people to create a country where even though all our desires might not be fulfilled but at least a large part would be cared for through your Leadership.

    Unlike the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs which according to Charles Dickens (with permission from another source), thus

    ” There has been no best of times, it is the worst of times, it has been no age of wisdom, it is the age of foolishness, it was not the epoch of belief, it is the epoch of incredulity, there was no season of light, it is the season of darkness, there appears no spring of hope, it is the spring/summer/autumn/and winter of endless despair. ”

    That was what the corrupt BN Government 2004-2018 created. 14 years of DESPAIR and WASTE OF LIFE AND MONEY !

    But with the opportunity to do good now in your hands, Tun, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat have a very good chance to move forwards and upwards for generations to come given the following Policies are in place, thus

    1. The Policy to affirm the Constitution as envisaged by the founding promoters.

    2. The Foreign Policy of being friends with all.

    3. The Policy to have a Government which does not do business or make money for the Rakyat except for the bare essential utilities like electricity, telecoms, infra structural construction etc.

    4. The Policy to up-lift all our young students to study Bahasa Melayu and one language of their choice with emphasis on subjects of their choice in English being Mathematics, Science, Computer Science, Business etc.

    5. The Policy to recognise that the LAWS are a living thing which must be updated and revised regularly eg. The 3 Essential Laws for commerce, finance, industry and the middle income group being, The Companies Act 1965, the Bankruptcy Act 1967, the Trustees Act 1949. in keeping with Britain, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia.

    Gross neglect of up-dating the living Laws should be ZERO tolerated in any proper and sound Government !

    And a revision of the Penal Code concerning social users of banned substances who should no longer be considered as criminals and put in jail with the same.

    6. The Policy to increase the Government’s responsibilities to care for the rising numbers of the aged, the single mothers and disadvantaged children.

    7. The Policy to provide affordable Health Care for all.

    8. The Policy to provide affordable housing for all.

    9. The Policy to retrieve all money stolen from the Public coffers by crooks even this will take 100 years.

    10. The Policy to improve our Security and Safeguards for our Rakyat and their Wealth.

    Whilst another Nation goes on a War rampage, our beloved Malaysia under your Leadership, Tun, carries on its good works for her Rakyat for all time.

    With an efficient and clean Ministry of Finance and its YB, anything is possible without costing a lot. The key is the Will and the Motivation to build a Great Malaysia as suggested by you, Tun, yesterday !

    What is better than this ? Where else but Malaysia ?

    Man proposes. God disposes.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Only you with the opportunity can lead us to greater heights. In this, we are all with you in TRUST !

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON THE CIVIL SERVICE.

    You may recall that I mentioned in my previous Comment that in my Life time I have never seen the Head of a Civil Service Department and sometimes the Chief Clerk working at his desk during office hours. The inevitable answer was always attending a conference, away attending classes or on medical leave. Without the presence of the Head of a Department the staff below him played pucks at the Rakyat expense.

    During the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs, many Civil Servants checked out early to play golf with all and sundry hoping for high honours and favours. The whole of the Civil Service was in shambles as was my experience during 2002-2018 in another Civil Service Department.

    A judicial matter which took only 5 minutes to decide cost me 8 years of waiting and anguish dealing with the crooked Trustees of my father’s Estate. These crooked Trustees spent over RM 2 Million in legal fees which this once esteemed Firm practised rice-bowl legalities. Believe it or not Tun !

    It is a given that in all organisations whether the Government or the Private Sector, it is the Leadership or the Head of a Department which counts. The employees below them will act accordingly. Because nowadays, with the fast moving media, the Bosses of Civil Servants flying off to Perth, Australia or to Liverpool to watch the British Open will be known immediately to the subordinates who would down tools accordingly and enjoy themselves too because they are so badly paid.

    Hence, with the Good and Incorruptible Government as led by you Tun with DSAI and the Team by your side, I have great hopes for a change for the better with the Malaysian Civil Service which has the most Public Servants per capita kin the World.

    As you have exhorted all, it is the MIND-SET OR COMMONSENSE. And with the Malaysian Civil Service, it is the Heads of the Departments who are in the front-line. The buck stops there – the Head of the Departments.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem It is a question of organisation with the right digits in place.

    A most important headline today, thus

    ” ” Dr M CALLS ON CIVIL SERVANTS TO ADOPT NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION TO MAKE MALAYSIA GREAT .”

    This call by our beloved Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is not only important it is significant and timely.

    Here are my Life’s experiences with the Civil Servants at the leading edge of the Civil Service, the Service Counter at Government Departments. All of them are normally unhelpful except for those specially set aside for old folk which now apply to me.

    In all instances, I told them I was born during the Colonial Age and did not speak Bahasa Melayu well. Yet, these Civil Servants insisted in speaking the national language even though I discovered they spoke English well.

    Then, there was the case of my renewing the NRTC in the early 2000s. I was given the round around because the girl at the counter at the NRIC Headquarters in Petaling Jaya insisted I produced my late mother’s death certificate which happened over 20 years ago even though I had a valid Citizenship Certificate as confirmed by all my Senior Civil Servants friends.

    And I noticed that all Heads of Departments have always been in conference, or attending classes for days or weeks without fail during my Life time. I have never met one Head sitting in his office during office hours.

    Maybe this explained why the streets of KL are crowded with motorcars during office hours on week days filled with malingering Civil Servants cruising around in their motorcars.

    But nothing can beat the Judiciary Department when it comes to real Civil Service work.

    In 2002, I sued the Trustees of my father’s Estate because they refused to have its accounts audited. The First Judge said it was a Singapore Trust even though the Probate was granted by the Supreme Court of Malaya in 1949. After giving this false judgement, he retired. Then the next Judge sat on the Suit for 3 years until he was promoted right up to the Federal Court, the highest in the land in 2005 from which he retired. 3 Lady Judges followed. The first and second Lady Judges told me to talk to the crooked Trustees whom I have been talking for 5 years before 2002. The last Lady Judge with a controversial past told me that the Suit was too big and asked me to trim it down within 7 days which I did. On the due date, this controversial Lady Judge told me I lost my Suit and that she has been transferred to Shah Alam. Why didn’t she tell me the week before on her transfer ?

    After 8 long years on a simple Suit just to examine the accounts of the Trust, a good Judge put the gun to the crooked Trustees heads and told them he meant Business in no under certain terms and ready for the Trial. The crooked Trustees caved in and surrendered in just 5 minutes !

    WHERE ELSE BUT MALAYSIA, TUN ?

    Throughout my Life I love to deal with the Civil Service directly so that I could gauge the sentiments on the ground !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. The standard understanding amongst the proletariat of our beloved Malaysia is ” AVOID THE CIVIL SERVICE IF YOU CAN ” !

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON BANKRUPTS

    There are actually 2 Major social issues of the day which concern and bog down the progress of our beloved Malaysia. @ Major issues which seemed to be kept undercover or completely neglected by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs. Instead the BN Leaders preferred to fly off to the ends of the Earth to play 19 holes of golf and gave to their wives a RM 1,000,000 watch if they were late in returning home !

    These 2 Major social issues are the neglect and ill-treatment by the corrupt BN Government concerning the SOCIAL USE OF BANNED SUBSTANCES BY THE ORDINARY FOLK AND THE HUGE MASS OF BANKRUPTS.

    Both these parties have their RIGHTS which are as yet unrecognised but trampled upon through the neglect of up-dating the LAWS by the corrupt BN Government. No one cared because ‘MONEY IS KING’

    First, many developed countries have recognised the social problem of the use of banned substances by the ordinary folk who are not criminals and should be treated so through and accordingly to the LAWS.

    Our Malaysian Laws treated the users of banned substances as Criminals. This is 19th Century law.

    IT IS THE LAWS WHICH CRIMINALISES THESE ORDINARY FOLK WHO ARE NOT CRIMINALS. Therefore, the Government has the Power and the Will with a compassionate stance to revise the Laws accordingly and release all so incarcerated with the real criminals from jail. And try to rehabilitate them. The many NS camps could be put to good use now ! And many Civil Servants put to good use. And the PDRM focuses on the real criminals.

    Maybe our beloved Malaysia sends her social workers to The Netherlands to observe how this COMPASSIONATE AND HUMANE APPORACH WORKS. The Netherlands is famous for her handling of such innocent users of banned substances for many years as a normal social problem.

    MALAYSIA SHOULD NOW REFORM HERSELF AND TREAT SOCIAL USERS OF BANNED SUBSTANCES AS HUMAN BEINGS AND NOT CRIMINALS.

    This compassionate act by any Government will rehabilitate at least 300,000 social users of banned substances LEGALLY AND HUMANELY.

    This humanitarian gesture to give a LIFE can be done just by the stroke of the pen BY A CONCERNED AND COMMPASSIONATE MINISTER OF LAW IN THE PMO. No more. No less. Kudos to the Government of the Day !

    SIMILARY THE SOCIAL PROBLEM OF THE BANKRUPTS THE OLD AND THE YOUNG COULD BE TREATED COMPASSIONATELY AND HUMANELY BY GIVEN THE BANKRUPTS A SECOND CHANCE LIKE OTHER DEVELOPED COUNTRIES BEING BRITAIN, SINGAPORE, HONG KONG AND AUSTRALIA. Our beloved Malaysia has 18,000 lawyers who create new legal cases daily governed by ancient and out-date Laws without compassion !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem except these 2 Major Social Issues of the Day affecting millions of innocent lives due TO ANCIENT AND UNREVISED LAWS WHICH ANY MINISTER OF LAW IN THE PMO SHOULD KNOW BETTER and should not rely on the PRIME MINISTER TO ALERT HIM. The Prime Minister is a very busy person always.

    Tun

    As soon as the year became 2020, the Cabinet was looking for a suitable candidate to fill an important job being the Minister of Education who departed hastily and without notice.

    On the one hand, this is a good sign of the practice of Democracy. On the other, Ministers of the Realm should not treat their appointed posts lightly and just drop their responsibilities and duties like a hot iron and retire back to where they came from.

    Going back to basics again, a Ministerial post which was most treated lightly especially during the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs, was the post of Minister of Law in the PMO.

    From 2004-2018, this post was decorated by one smiling gentleman who had no background and two others who kept themselves pretty and did nothing except the last Minister before the BH was ousted, misled over 300,000 young Malay bankrupts and others which make up to over 600,000 souls that the 19th Century Bankruptcy Act 1967 would be revised like Britain, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia. NOTHING LIKE THAT HAPPENED.

    WHAT THIS FAKE MINISTER OF LAW DID WAS TO ATTACHED THE NEW TO THE OLD . THE SO-CALLED NEW LAW BEGAN IN OCTOBER 2017 WITH NO BANKRUPT WHILST THE OLD INCARCERATED THE OVER 600,000 BANKRUPTS WITH NO FORGIVENESS unlike Britain, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia.

    Vide. The Star. Letter to the Editor. 25 June 2019. which claimed the Minister was influenced or corrupted by external forces like share-brokers, banks etc to punish the bankrupts who made mistakes and were young WITHOUT COMPASSION. A compassionate Nation must have compassionate Ministers of Law not those with WOODEN HEARTS LIKE THE BN GOVERNMENT APPOINTEES 2004-2018.

    The numbers of bankrupts of our beloved Malaysia are rising year by year because OF THE UNCARING ATTITUDE OF THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE AND GLCs AND SOEs.

    In time and by the next GE, there will be 1 Million bankrupts and their relatives and associates to make a total of at least 2 Million effective voters who are a boon to any Political Party in Opposition. If properly instigated, these urbanised 2 Million bankrupts and associates will be the king maker for the Opposition to win the urban areas easily.

    THE POST OF MINISTER OF LAW IN THE PMO SEEMED TO BE AN AFTER THOUGHT IN ALL FEDERAL GOVERNMENTS WHICH PUT PERSONALITIES WHO WERE TREATED LIKE CINDERALLAS, NEGLECTED. Tiny Singapore places great emphasis on up-dating its Laws all the time to control and serve its multifarious purposes WHILST BRITAIN, HONG KONG AND AUSTRALIA TREAT BANKRUPTS AS A SOCIAL MATTER – a bankrupt is to be forgiven, given a second chance and rehabilitated !

    In our beloved Malaysia, over 600,000 bankrupts including over 300,000 young Malays and non-Malays are UN-PRODUCTIVE AND CONTRIBUTE NOTHING BY THE 19TH CENTURY BANKRUPTCY ACT 1967 OF MALAYSIA. This situation was created by the fake Ministers of Law of the Corrupt Bn Government 2004-2018.

    IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA, WHICH IS THE ONLY COUNTRY IN WORLD ASPIRING TO BE BETTER, STILL PUNISHES ITS OVER 600,000 BANKRUPTS AS THOUGH THEY ARE CRIMINALS WHICH THEY ARE NOT WITH 19TH CENTURY VICTORIAN LAWS.

    It was very cruel for the fake BN Minister of Law to promise and tell the over 600,000 bankrupts which include over 300,000 young Malay and non-Malay bankrupts that the Bankruptcy Act 1967 was revised in 2017. Instead NOTHING OF THE SORT HAPPENED AS REPORTED BY THE LETTER TO EDITOR, THE STAR ON 25 JUNE 2018.

    HOW CAN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA PROGRESS WITH A SET OF 19TH CENTURY BANKRUPTCY LAWS ? NOT ONLY THAT, THE TRUSTEES ACT 1949 WAS NEVER REVISED AT A TIME OF A BURGEONING MIDDLE CLASS WHICH RELIES ON FAIR AND LEGAL DISTRIBUTION OF ITS WEALTH TO THE DESCENDANTS. THE COMPANIES ACT 1965 IS NOT UP-DATED REGULARLY UNLIKE BRITAIN, SINGAPORE, HONG KONG AND AUSTRALIA. The corrupt BN Ministers of Law 2004-2018 in the PMO were sleeping at the Rakyat’s expense.

    It is backward for our beloved Malaysia to treat BANKRUPTS AS CRIMINALS WHO DESERVE 19TH CENTURY TREATMENT AS INSTIGATED BY SHARE BROKERS, BANKERS AND THE LIKE – the only country in the developed World to do so. This is a shame and a blot on our well-known COMPASSION AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES ! A Sword of Damocles overhanging the head of every Federal Government with its over 2 million urbanised votes to bring instability to the Nation IF INSTIGATED BY THE OPPOSITION.

    To put an effective and caring person as the Minister of Law in the PMO will not only BRING OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S STATURE HIGHER BUT IT IS A REFORMING ACT TO TREAT BANKRUPTS AS A SOCIAL MATTER AND NOT A CRIMINAL MATTER IN KEEPING WITH BRITAIN, SINGAPORE, HONG KONG AND AUSRTALIA. In this, I regret to say our beloved Malaysia is still in the 19th Century.

    Strange as it may seem, there are over 18,000 lawyers in the country who seemed inert and continue to practice ancient laws but very concern with POLITICS. I thought the practice of Laws is a living thing which every case is different. Unlike the practice of Medicine in which common ailments occur commonly.

    It is time our beloved Malaysia grows up in ALL FIELDS INSTEAD OF SELECTED ONES OF NO MERIT OR COMPASSION TO THE RAKYAT AND A SHEER WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY IN SOME.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    But the Cinderella, the Minister of Law in the PMO is a problem BECAUSE THE POST GOVERNS THE UP-DATING OF LAWS ALL THE TIME. LAW BEING A LIVING THING IN WHICH EACH CASE IS DIFFERENT UNLIKE THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE – COMMON AILMENTS OCCUR COMMONLY !

    AND THE LAWS GUIDE THE NATION ! As we can see the huge traffic jam in BANKRUPTS CREATED BY A FAKE MINISTER WHO DID NOT REVISE BANKRUPTCY LAW 1967 BUT SAID SO.

    Even the Reform Marriage Act 1982 recognised ALL MARRIAGES BEFORE 1982. This is the correct precedent for any revision to follow for the Bankruptcy Act with COMPASSION. The Nation cannot afford to have a Minister of Law WITHOUT COMPASSION LIKE THOSE 3 MINISTERS IN THE CORRUPT BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 who only looked pretty and did NOTHING. Vide The Star Letter to the Editor. 25 June 2018.

    THE POST OF MINISTER OF LAW IS AN IMPORTANT POST IN ALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD but in our beloved Malaysia it is treated differently – reserved for East Malaysia or MISFITS.

    As we were talking about the prospects which the year 2020 will bring to our beloved Malaysia, suddenly without any warning, the price of oil surged to new heights since September 2019. The cause was the assassination of a top Leader of Iran by President Trump.

    With the unexpected actions of Trump in all things, we should expect the World to be in turmoil as regards politics and socio-economics affecting international trade and prices. It is obvious he does not care for good financial housekeeping by the United States but to keep his job by heating up the US economy and more jobs for his kind of people. He intends to keep flooding the market place with money QE or no QE. Once inflation rears its ugly head, the increase in the base interest rate by the Fed will crash the Dow – a drop of over 1,000 points is to be expected.

    Man proposes. God disposes.

    2020 will be a great year for our beloved Malaysia and her Good and Incorruptible Government as led by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    The prices of oil and palm oil will hold at higher levels. I reckon for every extra US$ 10 per barrel of oil the Federal Government gets, an extra RM 6 Billion will accrue to its coffers. Unlike the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs which could not account for the US$ 110 per barrel of oil under its charge – 2004-2018.

    The UN, the IMF and the World Bank Annual Reports showed that RM 1.5 Trillion were transferred overseas between 2004-2018 to benefit the host countries. Hence, the Federal Government must retrieve the stolen money even if it takes 100 years.

    2020 is a great time to build up our beloved Malaysia financial resources. But it is also a great time to care for the aged, distressed single mothers or widows or disadvantaged children by the Federal Government. Frivolous simple ideas like nursery in the Dewan Rakyat, Anti-bottom Bill and countless others as proposed by a publicity seeking junior official should be out of any serious agenda.

    We must build on the core issues which have been with us a long time ago. Issues like the e-business, cyberspace, over hang of properties a proper education curriculum and the starved O & G companies should be all be assisted in 2020 arising from better export prices for our beloved Malaysia’s resources.

    With better prices, the banks will be stronger and more pro-active which carry less risks.

    In 2020, a GDP of 5% for Malaysia is possible.

    On the other hand, I feel good, very good that the Ministry of Finance is under the control of a YB who is good at financial house-keeping to keep a set of clean books for the Government. Without knowing the financial status, a Prime Minister could give a RM 1,000,000 watch to his wife as a sop fro coming home late from golf. But, I would be absolutely mad to think that our current Prime Minister would do such a crazy thing. Besides, he does not play golf especially 19 holes ones. Good man !

    With a good and trustworthy FM in charge, I feel good that every Ringgit the Government spends, it gets back 85 sen – 90 sen. Unlike the corrupt BN Government which only got back 50 sen – 60 sen ! Even squeaky clean Singapore gets back only 93 cts – the difference of 7 cts was for official entertainment I presume.

    Yes ! Money should not be wasted at times like this in 2020. The focus should be on the core issues which should e built upon. May be a bit more on the production of food as suggested by Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin with a prospect on sea food production along our long coastline from Perlis to Sabah and Sarawak.

    As expected, a Supplementary Budget should be forthcoming. The money should not be wasted on frivolous projects but to firm up the core issues of our beloved Malaysia’s strength which has always been property construction and infra-structural development – not those zany round and round rails in KL Town but to penetrate new areas to increase wealth and socio-economic participation for the benefit of all. Maybe the double dose of ECRL and HSR is already an over-kill for the Government’s purses.

    It is good, very good that suddenly, you are given an opportunity in 2020 and beyond to implement Policies which will put your Life time devotion and love for our beloved Malaysia into a fleshed out former skeletal animal.

    Man proposes. God disposes.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. But our security needs bolstering to protect our hard-earned Wealth in 2020.

    China is not interested to cari pasal with foreign countries, especially, with moslem countries.

    China too will revise their national policies, and is ready to protect chinese interests at all cost with 1.4 billion population behind them.

    Anyway, local insiders are aware of what is going on in this country.

    It is always about vote counts.

    Janji menang, then, bikin.

    It is up to the tdm and his pakatan harapan to decide their direction this time, dll hanya ikut rentak, atau angin saja.

    Bak kata, there are so many opportunities out there to find a decent living as non muslim.

    Betul tetap betul.

    Tun

    In the year 2020, there is only one country with one Prime Minister who can shape the future of his country in the whole wide World.

    That country is our beloved Malaysia and her Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

    For the very first time, Malaysia and her Rakyat have the opportunity to be put on the Pantheon of Great Nations given the right Honourable Leadership and Policies by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Not the sort of leadership which comes home late and gives a RM 1,000,000 watch to the wife as a sop !

    Tun has very reluctantly returned to command and lead due to the wanton financial abuses and excesses of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2019 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    A moment later of intervention by the Tun on 9 May 2018, our beloved Malaysia would not only be bankrupted but also enslaved by Lee Kuan Yew’s wicked Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP which was already signed by the corrupt BN Leadership.

    That was the sordid background of a once dynamic and vibrant Nation known as Malaysia.

    How to approach the subject of doing the best with the right policies for our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat for now and the future.

    FIRST, WITHOUT ANY DOUBT OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD KNOWS THE BEST POLICIES FOR GOOD GOVERNANCE FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE RAKYAT IN THE YEARS TO COME. HE NEEDS GOOD PEOPLE AROUND HIM.

    SECOND, IT IS OBVIOUS THAT THE PERSON EARMARKED FOR THE PRIME MINISTERSHIP MUST BE PART OF THESE GOOD POLICIES.

    THIRD, WE GO BACK TO THE BASICS TO STUDY THE FABLES AND FOIBLES OF GREAT MEN SO THAT WE CAN IMPROVE ON THEIR WEAKNESSES AND MISTAKES NOW ENGRAVED IN STONE. A figure which stands out is Lee Kuan Yew, the god of most Malaysian Chinese – his fables and foible.

    Singapore is in a dilemma today as regards her future having been foisted with a socio-economic Model of the 20th Century which does not work today as shown by the statistics released by the Singapore Government year after year since 2002 !

    To quote,” The full year growth rate for 2019 was 0.7% (before inflation), the Government also said Thursday, down from 2018’s 3.1% and reached the lowest since 2009’s 0.1% when the global economy was hit by the financial crises.” Unquote.

    As the whole World knew, Lee Kuan Yew controlled Singapore up to 2015. Singapore was vested with the best talent and socio-economic model in the World. But alas ! Due to Lee Kuan Yew’s self-narcissism and obsession with our beloved Malaysia, his legalistic mind was iron wrapped by conventions. Looking back, he dared not become radical or unconventional. Hence, from the Olympian heights of the GIC, through flattery of the gnomes of Zurich and self-confidence, he ended up with the hoi-polloi of Wall Street and lost US$ 108 Billions (RM 324 Billions) in early October 2008. A large part of the riches from the Cold War Dark Trades 1948-1989, was lost in one fell swoop, back to the gnomes of Zurich. – like what the ancients said that ‘there is always a higher mountain’.

    Because Lee Kuan Yew was honest and not a crook and kept strictly to conventions best found in the thick tomes in Kino or Borders, no one alerted him to INVEST IN GOLD AT US$ 300 per ounce up to 4,000 tons before 2000. If he did this, Singapore would have been a mini-Super Power by October 2008 and became the King of the Hill and not just an ordinary Knight in shining armour.. A new socio-economic component created for the GDP !

    But due to Lee Kuan Yew’s character, the opportunity for Singapore to own an asset with Global reach or leverage NEVER HAPPENED. Or else, Singapore’s GOLD would have served Singapore very well in all financial crises.

    It was Lee Kuan Yew’s character and modus operandi by being over-cautious and over-conventional which brought Singapore to its position to day – ENTIRELY DEPENDENT ON THE WHIMS AND FANCIES OF OTHERS !

    From the mistakes of Lee Kuan Yew which were actual manifestations of his character which produced absurd quotable quotes like ‘Singapore hits above its weight.’and many others like, ‘ The next time there are riots, we have to grow barnacles in our hearts and not open our doors to them.’ etc. Such emotional barbs do not win many friends.

    From the mistakes, the fables and foibles of the great Lee Kuan Yew, our beloved Malaysia should avoid these feet of clay and state our own future for all the Rakyat.

    I am certain that our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who now has the opportunity, to show us the Rakyat the Way within our revered Constitution and nothing else.

    Our beloved Tun’s unenviable task is to fashion our beloved Malaysia to be the World’s Best Nation through proper policies for all time. Only Tun has the POWER and OPPORTUNITY. ONLY HE KNOWS HOW !

    I am confident that with our beloved Tun’s wisdom, brilliance and courage, Malaysia has the opportunity to be on her Way to the Pantheon of Great Nations and not a country of quarrelsome fellows who wear skirts !

    For our beloved Malaysia it is make or break or it is now or never.

    Man proposes. God disposes.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. In you we all trust. It is the LEADERSHIP THAT COUNTS, Tun !

    ADDENDUM FOR JHO LOW.

    ” THE AMERICANS EASILY FORGET. THE BRITISH TRY NOT TO FORGET. THE FRENCH NEVER FORGET. THE CHINESE NEVER, NEVER, NEVER FORGET. THE MALAYSIANS FORGIVE AND FORGET.

    The americans do not easily forget but no matter how frustrated and angry they are, they will make sure the transition power from republican to democrat, or vice versa, is being done in a gentleman way since billions of eyes including their hardcore enemies are watching them closely. Even mainland china and japanese can do that, dont you think so?

    The british are conservative, disipline, good manner and never like to be rude, and it is rather hard for them accept new things. When they really felt the frustration, hence brexit happened due to 2 face challenge.

    The french is famous for romantic but when comes to hardships, mana ada mood nak romantic due to changes of government, betul tak?

    Malaysians forgive and forget, or mubarakchan assumed malaysians are tidak apa attitude, lalang or dedak seekers like what sri sense is so proud to say tak ada orang peduli kerana ohsin, she means ah shun?

    Malay races cannot simpan secret even when osa required them to do so, dont you think so? Malay races really believe only they can decide the destiny of this country walaupun mereka tak layak, itu lah sebabnya, they protes sampai tak habis2 as if they are the victims until today?

    Kaum lain2 never question them based on mutual trust, dont you think so?

    There is no way Jho Low can stand trial in this country. Why? Telan mati bapak, luah mati emak. Why? Dulu perbuatan ini adalah halal, kenapa sampai dia buat jadi haram pulak, tak gitu?

    Jho Low and parents will not return for trial in anytime soon. Why? He learned his lesson hard. Why? In politics, there is no guarantee that he can become rich overnight or he can never be bankrupted overnight with snap of fingers.

    Why?

    An idiot with a plan can beat a genius without a plan.
    A brand that took you 20 years to build could be ruined in 5 minutes.

    JL can choose to issue media statements by saying our malaya judiciary is a rigged political system just like that apanama nissan mat salleh made in lebanon pun boleh, but i believe no automobile industry players will hire him anymore.

    If you ask me, should JL comes home to face the lord, i mean, highest judge of malaya? I say, yes, he should come back to face the trial as witness to show malaysians, especially, the malay and muslim that bribing po 1 is no longer relevant in new malaysia.

    Wang politik is a thing of past.
    Gerrymanderring politics are risky and dangerous.
    Why?
    Thanks to the bombing of afghanistan and iraq that lead to 911 that changed the world.

    Climate warming is real, and if the chosen ones are still dillie dallie to take their own sweet time to rich themselves first, malaysia too will be a failed country.

    Single plastic usage is discouraged to save the ocean.
    It is still on going until the standard set to qualify such initiative is reached.
    Why? There is still no alternatives yet to replace plastic with other material since plastic is the lightest material on earth. Even automobiles, trains, vessels and aeroplanes need plastic component to make them lighter to save fuel and reduce emission what.

    P/s: how to nail the coffin, the choice is with TDM. I believe he too does not want to see his legacy being taited by wang politik, iaitu budaya umno dari dulu hingga sekarang. Bak kata, harap pagar, pagar makan padi.

    Malaysian Style Democracy is alive and well in our beloved Malaysia.

    With the resignation of YB Mazlee, democratic principles hold sway in our beloved country once again where deserving candidates for top jobs are given a chance to serve in the public interest not in self-interest.

    The latest resignation of the Minister of one of the most important Ministerial posts in the Federal Government is a fair reflection of what went wrong. IT WAS SHEER COMMONSENSE in not pigeon-holing the priorities.

    And most of the priorities as promoted by the Ministry of Education were out of sync during the past 18 months. Instead of having unifying policies, policy after policy which was divisive and acrimonious was dished out without due consideration with the Team.

    There was not one single broad stroke of Policy but a multitude of dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. Hence, the Sword of Damocles fell on the Minister’s head.

    I have always been hopeful that the present New and Incorruptible Government as led by you, Tun with DSAI and the Team by your side will definitely makes it mark for Good and Transparency Governance for all time. This is a serious but problematic time to achieve what WE ALL MALAYSIANS HOPE FOR – A JUST AND FAIR MALAYSIA GOVERNED BY THE BEST IN THE LAND, NOT THE BEST CROOKS BUT THE BEST ELITE.

    In a diverse land like Malaysia, it is important that the Federal Government is the Referee in all things governing the humble lives of Malaysians. There should be no time wasted in playing golf all over the globe but normal working hours for all in POWER. Definitely, there should be no provision in the Budget for a RM 1,000,000 watch for the Prime Minister to give to his wife as a sop if he comes home late.

    The Prime Minister and his Cabinet functions normally like normal people and every success will come its Way.

    The lack of real Malay elite is what bugs our beloved Malaysia today. The Constitution states in no uncertain terms that unless the Malay and the n0n-Malay elite clap hands together, then only the country may move forward. As we can see from the latest saga, this pointer proved what could have happened.

    The tough task for the present New and Incorruptible Government is to inculcate the development of thousands of Malay elite like our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin and Dato Seri Sharil Redza Ridzuan who are World class figures of note. At present, there are too many fakes, copy-cats, plagiarists and charlatans around us forever fawning, talking and preening to attract attention. The new business industry of the NGOs adds to the complications.

    It is the very top Leadership which has to develop the real elite or else Malaysia will end up with every other maid-servant a PH.D ! Not forgetting that 3 generations of Malay elite were consumed by attrition through self-indulgence and self-immolation !

    But by recognising our weaknesses and rectifying them immediately, there is a great future for our beloved Malaysia as one of four most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia since 9 May 2018.

    We have the people, the stable politics, the natural resources and the land mass which are all located in the most strategic geo-political choke point on the Globe. Where are you Singapore ?

    It is now or never for all of us Tun. We must take the first arduous step on a journey of one thousand ‘lei’ as befits our beloved Malaysia. No more. No less.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    Pity to see the Education Minister resigning. The post is such a forbidden area for the faint hearted. I would not touch it with a ten feet pole myself. Indeed, I would touch direct politics with any pole. I am sure Dr Maszlee will be relieved to have let go of that poisoned chalice, and I am sure he will be a much happier person just to be one of us, the average man on the street.

    My apologies. A typo error which should read

    ” …It does not make sense to produce a few kids to inherit the money which eventually belongs to the Federal Government. “

    But, the federal government is subjected to the judgement of by-elections and general election, you can call it DEMOCRACY if you want, mubarakchan.

    Is the democracy the best political solution?

    India is famous and proud of claming themselves as most democratic country in the world but with such political perfection ideology, it is not a surprise such ideal would made 300,000 indian citizens poorer, or in poverty.

    On the other hand, china is famous and popular with her 1 party system, it is not surprise such political system though imperfect is able to pull 300,000 chinese nationals out of poverty.

    Pendek kata, judge at your own discretion, atau own risk.

    Mr Trump said Iraq owes USA lots of debts.

    His statement reminds me the chinese saying of “monks can run away, temple wont run with them.”

    Meaning pesident of usa comes and go, perdana menteri also comes and go, but united states of america wont run with them.

    Yup, takkanlah negara malaysia hilang di dunia.

    Kan malaysia is free, dah merdeka, tak gitu?

    Replacing barisan nasional with muafakat nasional with kongres melayu supremacy is akin to quence thirst by drinking poison.

    Ayuh, siapakah mahu jadi tuah, siapakah mahu jadi jebat dll hanya ikut rentak saja.

    Jika tak hepi, kuburkan pkr pun boleh, tak da masalah.

    Can dsai be able to succeed tdm as perdana menteri ke-8?

    We will just have to wait it out whether umno, pas dan pkr di seluruh negara including sabah can accept him, pkr, or not.

    A suggested NEW YEAR RESOLUTION FOR OUR FAMED JHO LOW, thus

    ” I PROMISE TO RETURN TO MALAYSIA IN 2020 BECAUSE I REALISE THAT IT IS ONLY A STATE OF MIND THAT I REMAIN FREE TODAY WHEREVER I AM. ”

    The facts to support this New Year Resolution lies in the fact that Man Proposes. God disposes. How ? The facts are as follows :-

    1. The Malaysian Government will exist for more than 100 years.

    2. The expectation of Jho Low’s Life is much less than this.

    3. It is only a state of mind that Jho Low is free. But the fact is that even with all the Billions of US Dollars around him, he lives in a surreal and fantasy environment as a hostage in the host country which cost him big bucks !

    4. The Federal Government definitely waits for his eventual demise. His assets have no legs to run any further with the application of legal instruments like Mareeva Injunction or an Anton Pillar Order. All his assets are easily traceable the further we move into the future.

    5. Mentally Jho Low still thinks he is free but actually HE IS HELD HOSTAGE IN THE COUNTRY WHICH HE FOUND REFUGE BY PAYING MONEY. He is now not only a prisoner of his mind BUT ALSO THAT OF HIS HOST – a double imprisonment. The host country laughs all the way to the Bank !

    6. One fine day in 2020, Jho Low will wake up from his imaginary dreams and find HE IS ACTUALLY HELD HOSTAGE AS A PRISONER IN THE PURPORTED HOST COUNTRY. He may find it difficult to return to Malaysia. The more he delays.

    7. At the end of the day, when Jho Low is not around, there is no basis for the host country to keep his assets which should be legally claimed by the Federal Government in the years to come.

    8. THEREFORE, EVERY POLITICAL PARTY OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIS SHOULD INCLUDE IN THEIR GENERAL ELECTION MANIFESTO THAT ITS GOEVENMENT WILL BRING BACK THE STOLEN WEALTH BY JHO LOW HOME, FROM HERE TO ETERNITY.

    9. Realism of Jho Low’s actual predicament by Jho Low himself, will bring Jho Low home when he realises that he is now held hostage or A PRISONER IN THE HOST COUNTRY WHICH HE PAID BIG BUCKS TO BE KEPT AS A PRISONER WITHOUT CHAINS.

    10. It is not fitting for Jho Low to pay big bucks to the host country to be kept as a prisoner without chains. I think it is very stupid.

    11. In any event, strange to say if Jho Low returns to our beloved Malaysia in 2020, he returns as a HERO to the happiness of all because the big bucks will return with him.

    12. Anyone who has not seen how a mind game works, this blunder as a prisoner in the host country by Jho Low is the classic of not carefully thinking our the WAY through what our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad calls MIND-SET !

    13. We all expect to live longer than 100 years. But the Federal Government will live longer !

    Coincidentally, there are now 3 HIGH PROFILE fugitives on the run eg. Mallya, Ghosn and Jho Low.

    Mallya is the flamboyant billionaire son of the Indian businessman in the Gulf who bought the best assets of India, Shaw Wallace for RM 150 Million from Sime Darby in 1981. He ran his airline Kingfisher to the ground and then absconded to London.

    I WILL BE VERY SURPRISED IF JHO LOW CANNOT THINK OF A SOLUTION TO GET OUT OF BEING KEPT HOSTAGE IN THE SO-CALLED HOST COUNTRY WHICH COST HIM A LOT OF MONEY. We Malaysians have never harmed a fly !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem with Jho Low. His assets will never be able to be kept away from the Federal Government, rain or shine. Especially, it does make sense to produce a few kids to inherit something which eventually belongs to the Federal Government. THINK !

    Just before the year 2019 is out and pass into history, here are two intriguing headlines, thus

    1. ” SINGAPORE DETHRONES US AS WORLD’S MOST COMPETITIVE ECONOMY ”

    2. ” SINGAPORE OVERTAKES THE US AS THE WORLD’S MOST COMPETITIVE ECONOMY.

    With the passing of the Singapore Anti-Fake News Law, I do not know whether these headlines are true or fakes.

    These seemed to be fakes due to the fact that Singapore is a tiny isle the size of the Isle of Wight with only 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-50 which could be fitted into one Shanghai precinct. And the United States is the World’s greatest super-power the World has ever known.

    With the new Singapore Anti-Fake News Law, it is impossible to differentiate WHETHER SINGAPORE IS BEST OR ‘NUMBER ONE’ IN ANYTHING OR NOT.

    It is best to treat all ‘good’ news emanating from Singapore as FAKE to be on the safe side.

    In reality with the facts, it is impossible for tiny Singapore with 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-50 TO BE THE WORLD’S BEST OR BEAT THE UNITED STATES.

    As one UMNO Warlord used to say,’ SOMETHING WRONG SOMEWHERE’ when the good Tan Sri discovered I am not ennobled. The next moment he was bussing the painted cheeks of a Singapore lady of a certain age.

    ADDENDUM TO MY PREVIOUS COMMENT.

    Our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is a Prime Minister of our beloved Malaysia NOT for his desire for POWER or MONEY but his LOVE of our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat.

    It is obvious to all that he intends to leave our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat in good order with normal decency and morality (which were absent with the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government Leadership 2004-2018), as his Legacy. A Malaysia which is respected by all the countries of the World in the pantheon of top Nations.

    Unlike Lee Kuan Yew who crafted the wicked Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP to enslave our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat through underhand methods like compromising Malaysia’s senior Civil Servants etc, the TPPA/CPTPP although signed by the corrupt BN Government has not been ratified.

    The TPPA/CPTPP was designed by Lee Kuan Yew to SAVE Singapore and his Inheritors as his Legacy. It failed because of his bad intentions to destroy, harm or injure innocent Malaysians, 31 millions of them, at their expense.

    See how EU ensnared the British BREXIT. Even with their best negotiators, it was like a game of snakes and ladders without end. At the end of the day, the British had to kow-tow with a 33 Billion Sterling Pounds baksheesh to the EU. Tails I win. Heads you lose !

    With the wicked TPPA/CPTPP, Lee Kuan Yew ensured that the 50 volume Agreement will lock in our beloved Malaysia forever and ruled by tiny Singapore with one street and 900,000 Chinese aged 21-50.

    His one page 1962 Water Agreement was his finest hour which out-foxed the Malaysians for over 50 years. The 50 volume TPPA/CPTPP Agreement is a sure-die contraption for lackadaisical Malaysia which was Lee Kuan Yew’s life-long ambition to enslave through legal and corrupt means, fair or foul !

    But Man proposes. God disposes ! Malaysia is now one of four most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland, Malaysia since 9 May 2018.

    Where else but Malaysia in 2020 ? Where are you, Singapore ?

    On this last day of 2019, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat stand proud after the horrendous bad governance of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    A period in which one top leader would give a RM 1,000,000 watch to his wife for returning home late as a sop and an ordinary Singaporean of no merit paid RM 100 Million a year before perks down to ordinary Managers who were paid RM 1-2 Million salaries per year. This wanton Rape of our beloved Malaysia’s financial resources via the GLCs/SOEs upset the whole Value System of our beloved Malaysia.

    The Private Sector bore the brunt of this Rape which was worse than the Rape of the Sabine Women in ancient Rome. None of these crooked perpetrators showed any remorse or regrets at their wrong doings with the Rakyat’s money even in Court.

    This was our history during which period 2004-2018 will make an indelible mark in its chronology for all time. A sad and black blot on a proud and upright country like our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat which was on the WAY to do greater things but was stopped short by this BN rot and decay.

    With such reflections on the last day of 2019, one can only look out of the window and enjoy our famous year end blue skies and sunshine with the rain kept far away.

    The bulbuls which used to nest in the young banyan tree outside my house have not returned yet. But I am full of expectations these wonderful birds will return after February. I am looking forward to their return with great expectations.

    As always, I am exceedingly happy with our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat – a born optimist one would say living in a wonderful country which is now one of four most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland, Malaysia since 9 May 2018.

    My grand-daughter did extremely well in the SMK PT3 and is placed in the Pure Science stream class which she desired. I encouraged her to do her duty in the school’s library which kept her mind and hands busy. Thanks to the strong foundation created in her by the SMK from young in both Bahasa Melayu and English, she now has a solid platform to advance in Science and Maths because her ambition is to be a Psychologist. A profession which will be in great demand in our beloved Malaysia in the future.

    Unlike many others, I do not complain or explain like Henry Ford II who was caught drunken driving with a blonde in Los Angeles in 1962. The journalists asked him what had happened. He replied, ” I do not complain. I do not explain.”

    On the Public front, what better Government than the New and Incorruptible Government as led by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side. A Government of the old and the young, the good and the great.

    A Leader who has no ambition for POWER or MONEY but only to develop a good and decent country as his Legacy. Where else in the World is there such a Leader, but Malaysia ?

    Yet the detractors, the naysayers, the morons, the half-past sixers, the crypto-singaporeans or communists, the tycoons, the fellow travellers, the Moonies or Martians, the ducks, the swallows, the treasonous Civil Servants etc kept on moaning and groaning that our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s WAY of good government governance is the wrong WAY because they claimed that he brought back memories of the past.

    In any authoritarian country, these recalcitrant would have been shot at the wall or disappeared un-noticed ! But not in our democratic Malaysia, we permit them to say their piece transparently and in broad daylight till they shrivel in the court of public opinion according to our revered Constitution.

    Just 2 significant events put the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs to shame. These are as follows :-

    1. YB LGE did the difficult task of cleaning up the Ministry of Finance like as though he was cleaning up the Augean Stables – full of s….t! Our beloved Malaysia now stands proud to have a clean set of books as part of the New and Incorruptible Government. Every Ringgit the Government spends, it should get back 85 sens-90 sens instead of 50 sens-60 sens under the corrupt BN Government. Squeaky clean Singapore Government’s return on spending S$ 1 is alleged to be 93 cts ! The shortfall may be due to official entertainment.

    2. YB Mazlee established the 70,000 strong English tutors Group which will push our beloved Malaysia to the fore in all things in the 21st Century. A force of 150,000 tutors would be ideal. All should be well rewarded as there is no free lunch in the World.

    Just two normal and significant moves which befit Good Governance and Practice with our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s support, turn round our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat’s prospects for the future. What more do we want ? The rest of the goodies which came along with the New and Incorruptible Government is ICING ON THE CAKE OF HONESTY AND INTEGRITY !

    Every time I passed along the streets in my area of Kuala Lumpur, I see poor Malays, Chinese, Indians and others eking out a living tending to their humble stalls, I thought of the unfeeling and inconsiderate remark,’ When I come home late, I give a RM 1,000.000 watch to my wife as a sop !’

    I also know full well that this same fellow impoverished the whole of our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat by 30%-40% in wealth or value. There is no excuse whatsoever for 14 long years 2004-2018 for enjoying Life at the Rakyat’s expense !

    As I always said, any responsible Government from now onwards will have to retrieve all the stolen money even if it takes 100 years. Remember the millions of poor folks who lived and died in our beloved Malaysia !

    Man proposes. God disposes.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. We are all with you in TRUST !

    There is a mischievous headline today in the Opposition paper The Star, thus

    ” WHAT REALLY WENT WRONG WITH MALAYSIA IN 2019 ?”

    My answer to this uniformed writer is that nothing went wrong with our beloved Malaysia since 9 May 2018.

    In fact, for the very first time we have a Minister in the Ministry of Finance who has clean hands in Putrajaya as a distinguished member of the New and Incorruptible Government. Just one good and honest digit will temper the rest of the Ministry and the Government as led by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    Also, the YB Mazlee achieved distinction with his 70,000 English tutors group for 2019.

    These two wonderful swallows will make our Malaysian Summer for 2020.

    The writer went on and on spinning out his ideals which HE KEPT UNDER WRAPS BETWEEN 2004-2018. Where was Mr Nat during this critical period of our beloved Malaysia ?

    But his target is our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad whom the writer claimed to bring back old ways with old memories. This claim is a big load of nonsensical allegations of no merit or JUST A BIG LIE !

    I ask Mr Nat, where are the closest aides of 1981-2003 who were crooked and walloped money big time during our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad 22 year Administration ?

    They all blamed him but it was these crooked closest aides who caused the big scandals. Definitely not Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad whose Concepts were all correct in the National Interest. The crooked closest aides crossed the red line of no return.

    Does Mr Nat know that one crooked closest aide walloped so much money within 10 years since carrying the distinguished Tan Sri Basir Ismail Samsonite in 1982 in a small Johor Baru factory that he could own a bank and collect Stradivarius violins at US$ 5 Million a piece which he on lent to Singapore and Shanghai Philharmonics but not to KL ?

    Or does Mr Nat know that syndicates of crooked closest aides ruined Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s significant and correct Proton Concept by walloping money via padded prices of wheel rims (5 per car) radios, plastic windshields, sale of factory wastes etc. All of them own expensive properties, listed companies etc. ?

    All scandals during 1981-2003 have NOTHING TO DO WITH TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WHO RULED THE COUNTRY WITH BROAD STROKES PRINCIPLES and not by walloping money from the projects which were allotted to the crooked closest aides.

    I WAS THE VERY FIRST I DID NOT CROSS THE RED LINE BECAUSE I REALISED THE TASK COULD NOT BE DONE. I REPORED ACCORDINGLY. THERE WAS NO SCANDAL. THE ONLY ONE WITH NO SCANDAL.

    Mr Nat, it is absolutely unfair to draw all sorts of political conclusions on the brilliance, wisdom and courage of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, without his REFORMATION ACTION OF 9 MAY 2018 WHERE ARE YOU TODAY ? Singapore ? You would have been engulfed by the Lee Kuan Yew creation the Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP !

    Our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is honest, straightforward and would not harm a fly. He is doing this not for POWER OR MONEY but for his LOVE OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND HER RAKYAT LIKE YOU MR NAT ! He was very reluctant to be active again until late in the day.

    Unlike the self-proclaimed giant with feet of clay Lee Kuan Yew, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has always been humble and caring.

    Mr Nat, do you know that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad encouraged a Japanese from Hokkaido to set up a restaurant in Kuala Lumpur ? A Bosnian refugee to make good in Kuala Lumpur with the encouragement of Tun who arranged the financing via a tycoon ? The former was my favourite Japanese restaurant and the latter was my former tenant !

    There are lots of information and facts which you and I do not know, Mr Nat ! Live and let live. And be happy. Our beloved Malaysia now enjoys peace, harmony and tolerance. Soon, prosperity will return if the price of petroleum and palm oil hold with no international trade hiccups !

    Surely Mr Nat, you are not thinking Hong Kong and Australia are better than our beloved Malaysia in 2020 ?

    Be a CONSTITUTIONALIST LIKE ME THEN YOU SEE THE WORLD YOU LIVE IN BETTER, MR NAT !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem if our beloved Malaysian has thousands of Malay elite – real ones not fakes, copy-cats or plagiarists !

    For TWIN PEAKS

    You are absolutely right about what does the Malaysian Man or Woman in the Street knows about the Palestinians or the Israelis ?

    Hence, I have been expressing my concern on the lack of real Malay elite in our beloved Malaysia. 3 generations of Malay elite through self-indulgence and self-immolation met with attrition leaving behind the real elite Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin and Dato Seri Sharil Redza Ridzuan – the thin red line. My view has always been our beloved Malaysia requires thousands of Malay elite because without the leadership of the Malay elite according to the Constitution, the non-Malay elite cannot progress.

    An elite is a person well-versed in ethics, propriety, standards, laws, sobriety, corruption, World and domestic affairs, fair minded, strong, courageous, and a super academic, not a fake, copy-cat or plagiarists.

    I have a friend who is definitely not an elite. He is alleged to have a Tan Sri-ship, 3 complete sets of Dato-ships from all the 13 States – 39 Dato-ships and innumerable LLDs because he always claimed to be the brain child of an iconic institution which was our beloved Tun Razak’s creation.

    As a result, the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and the GLCs/SOEs could con the Rakyat from 2004-2018 because NO MALAY ELITE RAISED A SQUEAK ! Here are true examples for all Rakyat.

    1. After the Federal Government assumed that it owned the Pulau Batu Puteh for centuries, the Prime Minister of the day, rushed off to The Hague to establish its true ownership. Malaysia lost the rocks. Singapore published a book on this case to show how stupid the Malaysians were and how very clever the Singaporeans were – the abang -adeks.

    No elite raised a squeak on why the Federal Government rushed off to The Hague in such a hurry after it was in its possession for centuries before the founding of Singapore in 1819.

    2. A hard-core PAP cadre was appointed to be the Chief Editor of the UMNO owned NSTP with a lush Sime Darby Apache contract between his thighs to ease his suffering in the hot and humid Ulus. No elite raised a squeak. Lee Kuan Yew must have laughed all the way to Istana Singapura in his white Jaguar !

    3. The UN reported that a Malaysian nobody topped the sanctions list on Saddam Hussein’s embargo list with 1,000,0000 barrels of oil When the Prime Minister of the day, was asked, he alleged to have answered that he just signed the letter. No elite raised a squeak.

    From the few significant events affecting our Sovereignty and National Interest, no elite, no squeak. No one cared about Sovereignty and National Interest which were subsumed by ‘ CASH IS KING.’

    From 2004-2018, there were hundreds of such incidents including the attempted hi-jack of a vacant piece of land earmarked for a surau to be turned into a motor-car showroom just before the 14th GE. During this horrible period, every opportunity to make money whether it was licences, designated vacant lands, etc were not left unturned. No squeak from the elite.

    Why no squeak from the elite ? Because there were no elite – 2004-2018 !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem if we have thousands of real Malay elite like you, Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin and Dato Seri Sharil Redza Ridzuan and TWIN PEAKS! No copy-cats, plagiarists or fakes !

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    In the main you certainly have a point on the absence of foreign commentators in this distinguished Blog. I respect you for being an idealist.

    It must be remembered even though racism is not permitted by Law in some Western countries, it is very much alive in the minds of most. If you think otherwise, you may visit these countries yourself and feel the heat. Racism is most evident amongst the working classes as it had been shown on TV. The same applies to those who appear in the Blogs.

    The fact is how much does a foreign Blogger know about us Malaysians living in their cosy anterooms thousands of miles away ? Our daily battles to survive in the aftermath of a horrendous financial Rape of our beloved Malaysia. The well ensconced Western foreigner from a developed country hundreds of years ahead of us in political and socio-economic development with thousands of elites on call by his side has no interest in Malaysia which is not to his or her advantage vide. Sarawak Report.

    I COULD ONLY IDENTIFY TWO REAL MALAY ELITE BEING TUN DR DAIM ZAINUDDIN AND DATO SERI SHARIL REDZA RIDZUAN HOWEVER HARD I TOSSED THE COIN. The rest of the Malay elite from 3 generations since 1957 met attrition from self-indulgence and self-immolation.

    Most foreign commentators are not cognizant of our beloved Malaysia unlike tiny Singapore which used to hit above its weight due to the braggadocio of Lee Kuan Yew. President Nixon commented, ‘ Big Man in a small place.’in 1968. No one asked why Lee Kuan Yew was not awarded the Nobel Prize for his self-proclaimed great deeds.

    Unless a foreigner has a special interest in this distinguished Blog, none will appear because there are very few individuals interested in our beloved Malaysia for many other reasons.

    Another reason is that our beloved Malaysia has no extreme slaughter of her own citizens, gigantic disasters caused by the weather or military dictators in full uniform. Hence, our orderly society does not attract foreign commentators who are more interested in the extremes of human behaviour. The political quarrels in Malaysia today are not big deals compared to those which are happening in other foreign countries.

    I reckon only specialists who made a living out of being critical of everything in Malaysia exist in one or two foreign countries only. And these types are not going to waste time in http://www.chedet.cc.org.

    Until our beloved Malaysia is convulsed in extreme terrorism and other extreme acts or touch a raw international nerve like climate change, TWIN PEAKS, rest assured no foreign commentator will appear in our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad distinguished Blog.

    I am here because I have a Life-Long interest to ensure my beloved Malaysia in which I was born will always be alive and well with proper standards. I am a Constitutionalist not a Communalist who makes a living by being chauvinistic. I present facts so that all will know the Truth. History being the Finest Arbiter of the Truth. By my comments, I hope to contribute to the goodwill, understanding and tolerance between the many communities which exist in Malaysia that we are all the same under the Sun. Facts and not lies are the best unifier of peoples. Within my limited Power, this is all I can do for our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat in the face of the headwinds of greed and charlatanism.

    I am very much aware that our beloved Malaysia is like Humpty-Dumpty on a wall – once broken will never be the same again, ever.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    Our beloved Malaysia will soon be known as the country which Prime Minister who comes home late after 19 rounds of golf, will give a RM 1,000,000 watch to his wife as a sop. The very first gesture of its kind in the World. The Prime Ministers of other countries do not publicise such acts in Court.

    Even though our beloved Malaysia which has a penchant to be the First in certain things, Singapore tells the World they are the best in all things like Singapore’s fire brigade or DBS is the best in Asia or its Navy is the best next to the United States Navy. If Singapore does not tell the World, we will never know. As it is said, ‘ Do not hide your light under a bushel.’

    Meritocracy is a word much bandied around by Singapore in the 20th Century as though it has a monopoly of geniuses. Serious efforts to wring geniuses out of the Singaporean Education System which was also bolstered by the infamous and aborted 1972 2 Child Family Policy of Lee Kuan Yew, produced no geniuses right up to 2019 ! That was 47 years ago. Lee Kuan Yew even booked a place annually for Singaporean scholars to parachute into Cambridge University’s best college, Christ’s. But all his meticulous efforts to produce Singaporean geniuses like himself were like hitting at the wind. Still no Singaporean geniuses but many First Class achievers. But most of the latter were found wanting in real life and had to be kept in an ivory tower of academia.

    Not only that, some Singaporean scholars without regard to who sponsored them would throw caution to the winds like the good female Cambridge graduate who pranced around naked with her Caucasian boyfriend around Holland Village one hot Saturday evening about 10 years ago. The Singapore Government was flabbergasted and did not take any action after all she was above the age of 21 !

    By 2014, 2 Ministers announced that in future, applicants for jobs and promotions would not be based on their academic qualifications only but also on their other talents. Still there were no sign of Singaporean geniuses as pronounced by Lee Kuan Yew as far back as 1972.

    It may be said the Lee Kuan Yew’s Policy of Meritocracy has failed Singapore. Without geniuses, it is alleged that Singapore’s Leadership would be bland and uninspiring.

    No one in Singapore in the 21st Century talks about Meritocracy anymore for fear of being laughed out of the tiny isle. But some crypto-Singaporeans in the hot and humid ulus up-country still believe in it even though they are not meritocrats themselves but just camp followers of Lee Kuan Yew.

    Over the week-end without much to do, I bought a copy of the expensive business paper The Edge. There was a Supplement which presented all the personalities over the past year as best known to its Editor – their fables and foibles.

    With the best known politicians aside, the saints and the sinners were all on parade and on muster. Many were ex-Civil Servants turned GLC/SOE big shots. No matter which way I tossed the coin, I could only come up with two real elite being Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin (Woifson) and Dato Seri Sharil Redza Ridzuan (Christ’s) both from the University of Cambridge. The rest from the fellow who bought the expensive Kim Eng Securities which is now losing money to those grinning property contractors, none qualified to be an elite even though they all believed that ‘Cash is King.’

    An elite is born not made like that of a Prime Minister. Both personalities would only be known in the field of action in public and not on a 19 hole golf course in some lush countries like Hawaii, Yunnan or Australia or Bali. Those were the halcyon days of not too long ago at the Rakyat’s expense through the free-spending GLCs/SOEs.

    The Edge Supplement also lined up the Few perpetrators of our beloved Malaysia’s present derelict condition due to impoverishment created by them. In our beloved Malaysia the Rakyat do not owe anything to the Few who brought our country down in shame. Or the recalcitrants WHO PUT THE VALUE SYSETM OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA UP-SIDE DOWN by their fervent belief that CASH IS KING.

    Disgraceful examples of greed and irresponsible acts were to pay an ordinary Singaporean RM 100 Million a year or more, down to RM 1-2 Million a year for an ordinary Manager in a GLC/SOE. This upset the whole Value System of our beloved Malaysia especially its Private Sector.

    None of the perpetrators of this World’s Greatest Financial Crimes earned the money but were good at spending what did not belong to them eg. padding Sale or Purchase contracts, sky high salaries and allowances, outright thefts in broad daylight with bungling cohorts etc.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    It is important to have non-Asian and non-Malaysian voices in this blog to give it more BALANCE. I don’t hear ANY Australian, American or European, or even Japanese and Korean commentator. It would be great to have a British view for once. And indeed an actual Arab writer to talk about Middle Eastern and Islamic matters (where Islam actually came from), instead of from an adopted country like Malaysia and a Malay.

    At the moment, it all seems like a monopoly of certain views, from just one nationality at that. There can never be any improvement if we cannot accept other people’s views, for better or worse.

    Happy New Year !

  59. mubarakchan Dec 28,2019 5:21 PM

    Tun,

    It is strange, very strange that the Leadership of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs claimed they knew best how to manage the Malaysian Economy now in doldrums due to the lack of liquidity.

    The Annual Reports of the UN,IMF and World Bank stated that over RM 1.5 Trillion were transferred overseas from Malaysia between 2002-3018.

    The resulting effect led to the lack of domestic capital to fuel normal businesses all round. Concomitantly, the banks were hit by the slumping O & G activities from 2014 and an over-built commercial and residential market over the past decade.

    All in all, a slow economy and low export prices for commodities will produce less revenue for the New and Incorruptible Government which also has its hands full to clean-up 14 years of sub-standard governance of the corrupt BN Government.

    You and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah must have seen the many closed shops in the malls. These saddened me with the knowledge of a loss of capital and the loss of jobs for the workers which will eventually have a snow-ball effect on the economy. This also reflects the consumers are not buying coupled with higher rental and other costs which make a retail business unprofitable. These closures reflect also the lack of funds in the Government coffers to stimulate the economy due to the huge theft and wanton spending of the corrupt BN Government 2004-2018.

    From 2004-2018, a nobody from Singapore in a GLC was paid RM 100 Million a year down to RM 1-2 Million for an ordinary Manager in a GLC/SOE. Whoever was considered essential was stuffed with cash as well as those who were non-essential.

    Potemkin agencies were established all over. I discovered one of these by accident. It took up 3 whole floors of a MARA Complex which was completely furnished with new furniture. The staff was brand new and just sat at their desks doing nothing but twiddled their thumbs.

    The grand theft of Government and Malay Trusts money, the wanton waste of money in all the GLCs/SOEs, the baksheesh given to the subordinate staff etc completely turned the VALUE SYSTEM OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA UP-SIDE DOWN ! The complete destruction of values, standards, ethics, propriety, rules and regulations carefully built up since 1957.

    NOT ONLY THAT THE TOTAL LOSS FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND HER RAKYAT IS NOT JUST RM 80 OR RM 100 BILLION, IT IS FINITE AND CANNOT BE MEASURED.

    For the curious, I suggest you value your property to-day. The value would have gone down by 30%-40%. If you apply this figure to the properties owned by the 31 Millions Malaysians, you get a huge figure for just one item. Then, the essentials of day to day living have all gone. You pay more and lose more from your pocket or reserves. The same applies to all the 31 Millions Malaysians. THE TOTAL LOSS CANNOT BE MEASURED ! This is the real LOSS due ENTIRELY TO THE LEADERSHIP OF THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE AND GLCs/SOEs.

    The Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 signed the Lee Kuan Yew creation to enslave our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat, the TPPA/CPTPP. This corrupt and cruel act is waiting to be ratified.

    The eventual recovery of our beloved Malaysia depends on a better World Trading environment in the years to come with the proper Leadership.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. 14 years of rule by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs brought our beloved Malaysia down to her knees – a once proud, united and strong Nation.

    Tun

    The year 2019 is fast drawing to a close.

    The news from all over the World have brought mixed tidings to all who took note of the shifting sands of international politics and socio-economics.

    Malaysia is again fortunate to see the year out with the petroleum price at US 68 per barrel and the palm oil price at RM 3,000 per ton. But those countries who thought they were tigers but actually they are just cats, exist on out-dated models of the 20th Century created by pompous leaders. Their inheritors are still in a somnolent mood. Such a headline tells all, thus

    ” SINGAPORE FACTORY OUTPUT POSTS 9.3% DROP IN NOVEMBER. ”

    This negative news have been reported by Singapore nearly throughout the whole year of 2019 – a symptom of the failure of its socio-economic Model based on the wrong assumptions in the 20th Century as the norm by Lee Kuan Yew, a true blue conventionalist. He could not think out of the box because his mind-set was not up to the mark unlike our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with his fine mind-set always seeking new ways and innovations to put Malaysia forward ahead of the pack. His only mistakes were caused by his crooked closest aides 1981-2003 without any doubt.

    The finest vision, innovation and creativity by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was his ousting of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs on 9 May 2018. This was the greatest REFORMATION of all. The rest is just part players to the main cast.

    How many Malaysians are aware that our beloved Malaysia was already earmarked by the corrupt BN Leadership to be an eternal slave of tiny Singapore through Lee Kuan Yew’s final Legacy to save Singapore and his inheritors ?

    IT WAS THE TPPA/CPTPP WHICH THE CORRUPT BN GOVERNMENT HAD ALREADY SIGNED BUT NOT RATIFIED. This is no joke.

    Look at BREXIT. The best of the British could not exit in a straightforward manner but were obliged to perform all sorts of twisting and turning to achieve her ends with 33 billion pounds sterling as a good-bye gift to the EU.

    It is alleged the TPPA Agreement has 50 volumes of details for the lackadaisical Malaysians to sign.

    Lee Kuan Yew’s 1 page Water Agreement creation in 1962 already out-foxed generations of Malaysians not including Singapore’s sycophants of 2004-2018 who forgot about OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST due to too much abang-adek activities like very hot 4 eyes relationships and close proximity retreats – mandatory b…..s as reported by the Singaporean media. Stupid.

    Man proposes. God disposes. Our beloved Malaysia escaped the TPPA/CPTPP death trap set for her to be an eternal slave of tiny Singapore by Lee Kuan Yew so that Singapore and his inheritors survive.

    History is the finest arbiter of the Truth.

    Anyone with a curious mind can fathom the failed policies of Lee Kuan Yew 1959-2015 in relation to his dual interest in POWER for himself and Singapore.

    Strangely, his character being honest as regards money on the one hand and his personal treatment of POWER on the other is easy to read. The failure of Singapore’s conventional socio-economic model as created by him is the lack of vision, innovation and creativity.

    The Cold War 1948-1989 served Singapore very well with Lee Kuan Yew having a very cosy relationship with Uncle Sam and the fabulous Cold War monopolistic trades specially reserved for Singapore and Lee Kuan Yew.

    For a short period 1963-1965, he was burning the candle at both ends. This meant on the official side Singapore was in Malaysia. But on the other, a secret bond with Uncle Sam held sway until 1989 when Uncle Sam without regard for Singapore interests came out with his hegemonic spiel which backfired, ” Globalization. Free Trade. Human Rights. ” – all anathema to Singapore. Uncle Sam backed the BRICS which grabbed all of Singapore’s Cold War riches which pushed her without effort from the Third to the First World. Lee Kuan Yew’s bragging rights !

    The hollow years began for Singapore from 1990 to 2019. To deal with the new norm, Lee Kuan Yew first garnered the Indian FTs followed by Temasek with the 2 casinos and his special creation to enslave our beloved Malaysia TPPA/CPTPP. All failed by 2019.

    Where Lee Kuan Yew went wrong was his inability to think out of the box !

    HE FAILED TO INVEST THE RICHES OF THE COLD WAR 1948-1989 INTO GOLD AT US$ 300 PER OUNCE BEFORE 2000 UP TO 4,000 TONS. HE FORGOT THAT SINGAPORE MUST HAVE A NATURAL RESOURCE WHICH HAS WORLD LEVERAGE.

    It was GOLD which has a price of US$ 1,500 per ounce today. This 4 legged horse has gone forever. A clear illustration which showed that arrogance does not pay in public life. What the Americans call a hard-nose approach is the order of the day.

    America has 7,000 tons of GOLD. Germany and France 4,000 tons each. Italy 3,000 tons. China 2,000 tons. Russia and India 1,000 tons. By October 2008, Singapore would have been recognised as a World Power with its GOLD, 4,000 tons held in Switzerland !

    Not only that, a huge brand new industry in GOLD would have been created right in the middle of ASEAN- the gateway to both India and China.

    Instead Lee Kuan Yew used the hard-earned money of Singapore from the Cold War 1948-1989 and descended from his Olympian heights down to the hoi polloi of Wall Street and exchanged the money signed by him for the funny or monopoly money of the gnomes of Zurich in exchange. As surely as the sun rises, by October 2008, SINGAPORE LOST US$ 108 BILLION OR RM 432 BILLION IN EXCHANGE FOR THE FUNNY MONEY !

    The regular statistics on trade which Singapore reported monthly only underlined the failure of Lee Kuan Yew’s socio-economic Model based on Temasek, 2 casinos, FTs and the TPPA/CPPT. Given the facts, all the other State owned GLCs are now at risk competing against fast moving powerful and clever rivals in the e -biz NEW WORLD of the 21st Century.

    To top off the sad scenario of the failed Singapore Socio-economic Model, Singapore has only 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-50 years. Since Lee Kuan Yew’s 2 Child Family Policy of 1972-1984, no Singaporean geniuses have appeared even though Lee Kuan Yew specially reserved a place for a Singaporean Scholar each year in the best Cambridge college, Christ’s for burnishing !

    The only answer for Singapore to keep up its First World status is to CONFEDERATE WITH THE UNITED KINGDOM ON EQUAL TERMS- The first in the World to have a tele-parliament ! The 4 legged horse has arrived for the third time. It may be the last.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem because you are always humble and has a fine mind-set which enabled you to think out of the box always. It does not pay to be arrogant and look down on others.

    Since 9 May 2018, a lot of water has flowed under the bridge as it is often said.

    Significant events like the Malay Dignity Congress and the Perdana Muslim World Congress have been launched and completed with success.

    But the naysayers, the detractors, morons, treasonous Civil Servants, crypto-singaporeans or communists, man from Mars, tycoons, fellow travellers, swallows, ducks, the ivory tower types, etc. still insist nothing much was done since the ousting of the corrupt BN Government.

    My viewpoint clearly tells me that at least two significant achievements were made by YB Mazlee on the 70,000 English tutors group and YB Lim Guan Eng’s cleaning up the Treasury to have a clean set of books. The Government now spends RM 1 and gets back 85-90 sens not 50-60 sens. These two important events are not to be sneezed at.

    The two significant congresses ‘The Malay Dignity Congress’ and ‘The Perdana World Muslim Congress’ are manifestations of Democracy here in Malaysia and the World at large – where like minded people gather to express their opinions on issues of the day. These are open and transparent affairs which should not be wrongly interpreted.

    However, the Courts of Law have exposed the surreptitious inflow of undeclared money amounting to hundreds of millions of United States dollars of undetermined origin to a BN Leader without declaration or transparency. This is not proper in a Democratic Society like ours.

    OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD IS TRANSPARENT AND CLEAR IN ALL HIS PUBLIC DEALINGS SINCE 9 MAY 2018 WHICH ARE OPENED TO CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM IF ANY UNLIKE THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS LEADERS 2004-2018 AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE AND GLCs/SOEs.

    With stable petroleum and palm oil prices and a clean up of the BURSA/SC with its rigged shares which in one case breached over RM 1 Billion illegal and corrupt transactions organised by one individual over 18 years, a Supplementary Budget maybe forthcoming in early 2020. This will fire up the whole economy by providing jobs and better salaries.

    The first 18 months of the New and Incorruptible Government had its hands full cleaning up the BN Augean Stables. White elephants so created by the corrupt BN Government had to be trimmed down to normal size without corruption and with transparency.

    If the Penang-Kulim Airport Complex takes off and the old Bayan Lepas Airport transformed into he New George Town – the best tropical city in the World – the snow-ball effect will sweep the whole Peninsula and on to Sabah and Sarawak. The whole World is waiting for this unique development with bated breath.

    Such dynamic and visionary policies bolster the fact that our beloved Malaysia is one of four most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia. Where are you Singapore ?

    With the inflows of FDI established in 2018 and 2019, this is the icing on the cake of the New and Incorruptible Government as led by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem since you are always transparent and clear with your Policies.

    A headline which is full of history of our beloved Malaysia appeared today, thus

    ” RETIRED COPS HOLD ANTI-COMMUNIST RALLY IN KL ”

    Many Malaysians today have not experienced the years of active Communist Insurgency in our beloved Malaysia 1948-1989.

    In the year 1951, the Communist Insurgency was at its height, the British Governor Sir Henry Gurney was assassinated as his car ascended to Fraser’s Hill. The Brigg’s Plan to regroup the Chinese squatters along the jungle fringe began to take shape by herding them into New Villages throughout the country. Only cooked food was permitted to be taken out of these abodes. There was hardship all round. Every town boundary limit was fenced with barbed-wire with policemen on duty at the restricted entry/exit points.

    Between 1948-1957, a real hot War was in progress day and night in our beloved Malaysia. This was no joke.

    One fine and sunny morning, I was sitting at my desk in school as the teacher taught his subject. Suddenly, a loud bang came from behind me. A bullet passed through my wooden desk. A few inches off course, I would not be here to tell the tale.

    My classmate Yee Mun Too a Sutton Auxlliary Policeman, was fiddling with his revolver when it discharged. He was an over-aged boy recruited to be an Auxilliary Policeman. His over-age was caused by the three and a half years of Japanese Occupation when there were no English schools.

    With the daily reports of ambushes by the Communists and incidents like the one which I experienced, I was utterly frightened and resolved to pass the examinations to ensure making my trip to the England by studying very hard. I was extremely keen to get out of a hot situation.

    When I reached London, I studied very hard not to fail and return to Malaya. Fear was really a good stimulus for my studies unlike some of my friends who had an exciting and gala time in newly post-war London.

    Very early on in the Communist Insurgency, a clerk in my family rubber estate in North Johor was murdered by the Communists to terrorise the people living there. Eventually, a platoon of Gurkhas was stationed at the rubber estate. With their presence, there were no more murders or incidents.

    The retired PDRM personal have every right to protest. I support them. We must not forget those loyal policemen who fell in the field or wounded by the Communists. Those were hard and trying times.

    I had a cousin who was a radio operator in a jungle squad. He told me that he was very scared every time he went on a patrol.

    And the most Senior Advisor on Counter Insurgency to the Federal Government 1950-1992 Tan Sri Dr C.C. Too, always reminded the senior military and police officers that even though Communism seemed to be defeated, it would return in another form.

    Coincidentally, in 2019, at the press of an invisible red button by the Controller in response to the phantom commander, up popped the Silk Road & Belt comics, the invisible ashes which no one has seen and the brazen 30 Year Celebration by the CPM Assembly 2019 at Kajang. Obviously, we must expect more similar incidents to come.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Forewarned is forearmed.

    Well, actually the Malays are lazy.. in comparison to other races, that is. And let’s face the real world. You have to compare yourself with others. That is the whole point of competition, isn’t it. There is really no point in denying that you are lazy, when you are actually, well, really lazy.

    But, that is only the first step. And important step nonetheless. If you don’t accept the truth, then you cannot even begin to find the solution to your laziness. The next step is, once you accept that you are lazy, you have to find out why it is that you are lazy. After finding out the causes, then, only then, can you implement ways to find the solutions to reverse the causes to your laziness.

    It is very simple. First, admit the FACT. Then find out how to solve the problem. And by this, I don’t mean.. chest-beating, flag-raising, terrorizing your neighborhood with home-made fish bombs, or calling your community to build up arms to so-called defend yourselves against attacks. That will not solve your laziness. That will only make you the laughing stock of the rest of the world.

    An excellent comment by Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin on the Malays this morning, thus

    ” THE MALAYS ARE NOT LAZY “.

    Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin is correct because we cannot compare one community with another. It is like comparing chalk with cheese.

    I have always pointed out to the non-Malays that different communities behave differently. We should not compare ourselves with others. In Life, I have often made the mistake of comparing my own standards with others. For this inadvertent mistake, I paid for it in kind for being careless. I am referring to the Chinese and my relatives who were crooks or worse.

    Take the case of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his closest aides who all let him down except for myself at the very beginning. I found my task was not achievable and told him so. There was no scandal. But the rest of his closest aides crossed the red line of no return and walloped money big time which created scandals. They all blamed him.

    Our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad thought the crooked closest aides understood every word the said on the 88th Floor but actually their minds were in the basement planning to steal more money.

    I knew the whole lot of closest aides.

    One of them within 10 years after carrying our distinguished Tan Sri Basir Ismail’s Samsonite in a tiny factory in Johor Baru, stole so much that he boasted of controlling one bank but now he collects Stradivarius violins at US$ 5 Million a piece which he on lent to Singapore and Shanghai but not to Kuala Lumpur ! Facts like these suck !

    The politicised description of the Malays is unfair and unjust. We should not even bring this up to stop such this wanton dispersal of fake news from taking effect anywhere on this Globe.

    Leadership of the Government of any country in the World is of paramount importance.

    Not too long ago, a Leader of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs encouraged the Malay youths to take up golf. For an impoverished youth, there are no public golf courses in this country. A golf set costs thousands of ringgits with the most expensive at over RM100,000 ! The game is time and money consuming. What a thoughtless remark by a responsible Leader.

    Here is a true fact about the Malays.

    From 1975-1984, I managed and made money from the biggest bankrupt textile mill in Malaysia Folex Industries Berhad. All I had were 3 Malaysian managers one of whom was a Malay and a work-force of 1,200 MALAYS working on a 3 shift non-stop operation, day and night with noise, dirt and heat.

    THEY ( MALAYS ) WERE HARD WORKING WITH THE RIGHT LEADERSHIP WHICH WAS FAIR AND REWARDING. THIS WENT ON FOR 9 LONG YEARS 1975-1984. Relationship between the Management and the employees was perfect. The Consortium of Banks MIDF, HSBC, Standard Chartered, UMBC and Bangkok Bank did not bring out a single sen to save the company. I was not a shareholder and was paid only RM 7,000 per month with an Alfa Romeo and one month annual bonus. At the end in 1984 after a successful re-structuring, the Consortium walked away as though they did not know me after collecting their debts in full. Where else but Malaysia ?

    Throughout 1975-1984, the Head, Wanita UMNO, Serendah who was employed in the Folex Headquarters as a Public Relations Officer in Kuala Lumpur kept sending poison letters in brown envelopes to the Prime Ministers downwards, complaining of ill-treatment WHICH I IGNORED COMPLETELY. At the end, my desk drawers were full of un-opened brown envelopes of poison letters. This type of play is peculiar to our beloved Malaysia. Any other person would have been de-railed by such actions. I was not as I understood the local environment very well.

    Now a fellow with IMDB and RM 42 Billion could not make A SINGLE SEN ! Where else but Malaysia ?

    As our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad kept on hectoring us that it is the MIND-SET. In Folex Industries Berhad 1975-1984, I could transmit my mind-set to the 1,200 Malay workers who gained in monetary terms which I quickly dispensed to them at the earliest opportunity as promised. I did not steal a single sen which rightly belonged to the workers and shareholders. I felt I was a Trustee of sorts.

    Here is another factual example of Leadership.

    A few years ago, a brilliant Muslim Indian returned from his studies at the LSE London. He joined a Government agency in Cyberjaya. His Boss told him to work out the Budget for the following year. He soon delivered the Budget to the Boss who told him to add RM 5 Million more to the total. The young man was very upset and reported it to his father who told him to do what he was instructed to do. Thereafter, the brilliant young man returned to London.

    Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin is absolutely correct on his comment that the Malays are not lazy. A clear illustration of how hard working the Malays could be given the right Leadership, was my experience with the 1,200+ working Malays for 9 fruitful and profitable years at the biggest corporate bankruptcy of the 1970s, Folex Industries Berhad now known as Sri Hartamas Berhad, Nothing else can be tougher than working in a textile factory environment with all the noise, dirt and heat, day and night !

    Jealous enemies of our beloved Malaysia which is now one of 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland, Malaysia, add to the fake news.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. You are correct. A Leader must have the right MIND-SET, nothing else, not even MONEY !

    Neutrals like myself are just wondering whether the KL Summit on Muslim Nations 2019 is merely a sideshow to the main course.. how to regain the Malay vote bank back to Bersatu, by championing global Islam. The Palestinian cause is just perfect timing (!)

    Yes, UMNO and PAS seem to have most of the Malay Muslim votes at the moment. Don’t they..

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    Your suggestions of more International Muslim activities on education and other socio-economics in our part of the World especially in Sabah would be an eye-opener to all.

    Just concerning our beloved Malaysia alone, essential money was wasted on 500 watches from Swiss companies owned by the gnomes of Zurich or the 600 handbags which came from the same group of gnomes. There is a crying need for money to be well spent on the poor.

    1MDB with RM 42 Billion could not make one sen. I could make millions of ringgits with the huge bankrupt Folex Industries Berhad 1975-1984 without a single sen from the Consortium of Banks eg. MIDF, HSBC, Standard Chartered, Bangkok Bank and UMBC.

    What the Muslim World lacks is good publicity emanating from sound public relations establishments or advertising companies. The major ones such as these are also controlled by the gnomes of Zurich.

    Organisation as our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had rightly pointed out a long time ago is a must for the Muslim World at large. He has tried to do so since.

    As it is , all the riches of the Muslim World are tapped by the West with their super efficient financial institutions in close proximity to the wealth.

    Therefore, any affront to the existing Order has to be carefully evaluated at all times. A tiny mistake may snowball into something disastrous and uncontrollable. As it is often said if the cap fits, wear it !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

  67. twinpeaks Dec 23,2019 1:21 PM

    A couple of things that neutrals like myself can observe from the KL Summit on Muslim Nations 2019.

    The first is that the founding countries from the Middle East, Turkey and Qatar, are currently in diplomatic tensions with the Saudis and the Americans. Malaysia and Indonesia may just be the right allies from the Orient, against our own important trading partners, Saudi Arabia and the United States. The diplomatic tension?.. something about their wholehearted support for terrorist organisations.

    The second thing is that it was amusing to see Erdogan’s face when we mentioned that countries like Turkey should lead the the Muslim world to start producing weapons to fight the Jews and so on. Erdogan may well have been reminded by his aides during the Summit that Turkey are only producing their F-16 Falcons and Frigates under licensed from the Lockheed and German defense companies. Do they really have, or can they really produce, their own defense technology at all? I wonder..

  68. twinpeaks Dec 22,2019 2:09 PM

    How about for Malaysian government to organize something like.. the Kota Kinabalu Summit on Educational Improvement in Muslim Countries.

    The Palestinians should be invited for free. And I am very sure the Saudis and Pakistanis will be very interested in attending.

    At least it will have more substance and relevance to the supposedly suppressed Muslim world. And at least Kota Kinabalu will get to have its first major use of the world-class facility at the new Sabah International Convention Centre.

  69. twinpeaks Dec 22,2019 11:56 AM

    I would like to say a few words on the recent KL Summit. Although I am a Muslim (converted from Catholicism since small), I do feel the need to give a few good advice to my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters worldwide…

    1) Stop vilifying the developed countries and their ways.
    2) Focus on our own weaknesses first, especially in the technological field.
    3) Be realistic as to the possibility, time-frame and cost-effectiveness of implementing a drastic plan.
    4) Accept the human nature that the oppressed are oppressed precisely because of what they have done to themselves, and that the oppressed will always be looked down upon by even fellow oppressed countries. For instance, Saudi Arabia feels that they are closer to the West economically than the Muslim world for good reasons. Because they are rich (!) The same with Japan’s attitude towards Asia, until today.
    5) Learn how the West have developed their economies. And try to copy their ways, without shedding the religion. There are many ways to do this. Just be creative.
    6) Observe the Western attitude towards the world of learning and research. This will give us a clue why they are at least a century in advance of every one else (except the Japanese and Koreans).

    It was a good conference nonetheless. Something to ponder on about for the next few months. But I doubt very much, anything concrete will come out of it. Will be forgotten soon enough, believe me. It is better to put more effort on focusing on the obvious and painful changes that need urgent attention. Another year of putting them off is another year wasted on catching up with the West, and thus another year getting left further behind.

    Start with the basic first. Start with the attitude of poor and oppressed countries and peoples own attitude toward learning and education in general.

    As it is said that much water has flowed under the bridge since 9 May 2018. This has culminated in the important Kuala Lumpur Summit of Muslim Nations 2019 and our Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin with his wonderful mindset giving all a caution on the expansion of our food production and the necessity of keeping the prices low for our essential foodstuffs. Both events are crucially important with significant influence on future events.

    However, because of the state of our Malaysian Democracy and its economy, public affairs have become like a rugby game with all sorts of incongruous participants engaged in this free for all with no expense spared called ‘Malaysian Democracy and its Politics.’.

    Droves of lawyers in mufti, Sensodyne promoters with the letter C4, rich retired UMNO lawyers, NGOs by the hundreds etc all lined up to engage in any fracas at the drop of the hat. Rallies to push home their points now are a sen a dozen.

    Important issues are forgotten.

    Publicity seekers like that very junior deputy who is forever seeking free publicity in the media with copy-cat proposals like nursery in the Dewan Rakyat together with 10 other plagiarised proposals now ending with a Bill for Children’s Rights pinched from some rallies in Europe.

    CLOWNS, PLAGIARISTS OR COPY-CATS IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IN THE PUBLIC ARENA ARE BORN EVERY DAY. BUT IT SHOULD ALSO BE REMEMBERED THAT OUR PRIME MINISTERS ARE BORN BUT NOT MADE.

    However, our Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin stands head and shoulders above the rest in his infrequent comments to alert Ministers who are responsible in the care for the Rakyat’s welfare.

    Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin has already commented on the expansion of our food production to provide for self-sufficiency and the importance to have low prices for all essential food products.

    It is a given that a low cost of living with plentiful jobs available should be the aim of any Government anywhere in the World.

    Rice is the staple diet of Malaysians who are accustomed to low prices for this commodity. It pays for a special unit in the PMO to monitor and provide important information to ensure an adequate supply of rice in the years to come. Adequate information makes important decisions like buying rice at low future prices in the rice producing countries of ASEAN.

    History is the finest arbiter of the Truth.

    During the British Military Administration (BMA) 1945-1950, a chain of rice store-houses were established under the control of the Chinese store-keepers who were soon corrupted by the Chinese rice dealers syndicate which controlled the black market in rice. A storekeeper told me how the syndicate worked in conjunction with the black rice trade which was in parallel with the real white rice.

    At the material time, the Chinese sanitary inspectors in the Pudu Wet Market could send their children to study Law in London and spent time gambling at night in the Selangor Chinese Recreation Club. This happened during the BMA period 1945-1950.

    Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin has correctly warned that those responsible for the future plight of the Rakyat should focus on the essential and core issues of good governance. This implied that all frivolous proposals without a care for the Rakyat are out and should be treated with contempt.

    Arising from the political melee’ of the wet market hoi polloi, some one ordered the Controller of the CPM to press the red button. Up popped the Communistic Silk Road and Belt Comics, the invisible ashes and the brazen 30th Anniversary CPM Assembly 2019 at Kajang.

    These days our beloved Malaysia is never short of excitement of one kind or another with more to come from the CPM without any doubt.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    For Mubarakchan.

    Yes, I agree as to the value of education. In my case, I remember my mum used to drive me to primary school in KK everyday even though she had a lot of other stuff to attend to, in the late 1970s. Then my dad spent a fortune to send me to the Perse School in Cambridge for secondary schooling. Then he sent me to finish my two degrees in London.

    Education is priceless. It took a long time just through the initial phase, a lot of money and a lot of studying. Perseverance. It was darn hard work for everyone in my family. But as I got older, it took me less time to study a huge amount. This is the ultimate payoff.

    Education is the best investment anyone can make, because its invisible value can never be lost, but only increased over time. That alone can save any individual in his hour of need. An educated mind.

    Kudos to the Ministry of Education for conducting successfully another series of annual PT3 examinations. This is the way to go to provide a better and better platform for all aspiring students in the years to come.

    My grand-daughter passed with flying colours even though a few had more A’s than her. Not to worry as I congratulated her for her personal achievement. She certainly did better than myself when I was of a similar age. It was very worthwhile for me to get up at 5.30 a.m. daily to drive her to school. This PT3 examination forms the first foundation for her next attempt to gain a higher level of education.

    I have no hang-ups or hang-over with the National School System unlike those who think they are on Mars or the Moon. Citizens of any country should go with the flow in national terms and should contribute in the national development in emerging countries.

    In 1972, Lee Kuan Yew abolished the Nanyang University and the Vernacular School System in Singapore on the pretext of security for the country. No one challenged him for this act even though some may sulked quietly hiding their disagreement. In any country, no dual kingdoms are permissible.

    My children and grandchildren have never been handicapped by the National School System. I always encouraged them to build on it. This had proved to be advantageous without any negative connotations because the World at large offers a wide field of studies these days unlike the distant past. We must always be able to adapt to any situation to avoid unexpected obstacles, like what may happened in real Life. This is what makes Life so interesting and not expecting to be served anything on a plate. This is known as ‘ there is no free lunch in this World. ‘

    For those who believe in ‘Cash is King’ at the very top, the result of such a belief eventually ends up in tears or jail.

    It is the mind-sets which our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had harangued us all the time to develop. This is the Way to go for the young and the old. There is no two ways to go about it but to plod along in Life developing one’s very own mind-set !

    I know the story of a very rich person who had no business empire but hid his Wealth in his mind or mind-set. One ambitious young man married his daughter and expected to find tons of physical wealth in the family. He was disappointed at finding no evidence of wealth anywhere in the house or office. His new father-in-law only kept smiling every time they met. The ambitious young man looked high and low in the office and in the house looking for the hidden wealth. He found none. His friends laughed at him for not being enriched on day one of his marriage. Only his father-in-law knew where the Wealth is kept. IT WAS IN HIS MIND-SET !

    See how important a good mind-set is to a billionaire as to an Uber taxi driver ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. The more good mind-sets we have the better for our beloved Malaysia !

    The sudden shocking REVELATIONS of wrong-doing by a top Leader over-shadowed all other events of the day. More skeletons will come tumbling out of the cupboard with more unsolvable murders solved once and for all. The untimely deaths of the Mongolian girl, the AG Chambers officer , my friend Najadi, co-founder of a bank and the PI Bala.

    WITH THE REVELATIONS MALAY DIGNITY IS RESTORED FOR ALL TIME.

    In fact, Malay Dignity has always been present without politicization

    I have always respected the Dignity, the Honour and the Courtesy of the Malays since young. Once, I asked a Malay friend why he liked to be my friend. He replied that he did not feel threatened in my presence. I never looked upon myself in this manner.

    To the World at large and to all Malaysians, THE REVELATIONS SHOW HOW JUST ONE PERSON WITH POWER CAN BRING DOWN A NATION or a rotten apple or egg will spoil the rest or the rotting fish-head affects its body eventually.

    Conversely, the choice of a Prime Minister is of paramount importance to govern wisely, fairly and compassionately.

    As I have always said that a Prime Minister is born not made.

    To bolster this argument, this is why the ancients always said a rich man’s fortune lasts only 3 generations because the acumen to do business and make money is not transferrable via the genes. I have noted that rich Dynasties have failed as surely as the Sun rises in my Life-time. Hence, all denizens who are born under the Sun, have an equal chance to make good through the centuries always.

    Man proposes. God disposes.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. The World and Malaysia will see that the Malays did not lose their Dignity or NEITHER DID THE OTHER COMMUNITIES OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA. It was just one person with POWER who created the ROT which has nothing to do with the Malays or any other Community !

    From the ashes like phoenix, our beloved Malaysia will rise and rise, to become ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FOUR SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA. Where are you Singapore ?

    ADDEMDUM TO MY COMMENT ON THE EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE OF THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT 9 MAY – DECEMBER 2019.

    There is a well-written letter on the lies and the Fake Revision of the Bankruptcy Act 1967 by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs in The Star 25 June 2018. The letter pointed out that the BN Government and its Minister in charge did absolutely nothing to give the over 600,000 bankrupts a chance like in Singapore, Hong Kong, Britain and Australia. But through the corrupt influence of share-brokers and bankers, the Act continue to mete out a 19th Century Victorian punishment on all the bankrupts including the over 300,000 young bankrupts, out of a total of over 600,000 bankrupts with rising numbers each succeeding year !

    Until now, I thought compassionate dwells in the hearts of all of us, Malaysians.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

  78. mubarakchan Dec 16,2019 12:56 PM

    As the year 2019 draws to a close, the headlines have become bland and uninspiring like the Singapore Leadership. Comparatively, the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great have performed exceedingly well given the fact that it was put together at the very last minute.

    The hiccups were from the unfeeling Minister of Law on the plight of the over 300,000 young Malay bankrupts incarcerated by the corrupt BN which never revised the Bankruptcy Act 1967 but said they did. Unlike Singapore, Hong Kong, Britain and Australia which give bankrupts a second chance. Our beloved Malaysia is still under the corrupt influence of the financial interests like share-brokers, and banks who want to punish debtors in a 19th Century Victorian manner. However, the backlash to come will be the 2,000,000 urbanised bankrupts and their associates who will surely exercise their rights to vote the right way at the next General Election probably with instigation from the Opposition.

    Further hiccups like the Flying Motorcar which somehow got into the urgent Agenda of the New and Incorruptible Government. To this very day, I am still trying to figure out how a Flying Motorcar suddenly appeared out of nowhere !

    Then, we have the junior deputy minister who forever trying to catch the public’s eye with her one-off proposals to do good in her interest like

    1. The Anti-Bottom Pinching Bill
    2. A Special Unit to look after the Welfare of the Children in the Ministry which looked after them for decades.
    3. A similar Unit to look after the aged and the children in the same Ministry.
    4. Her discovery that there are 100,000 teenage pregnancies annually. Just to up-date her, I used to do 100 D & C at the KLGH in 3 months.
    5. The PM has not opened the Dewan Rakyat Nursery yet based on her proposal for maternal journalists.
    7. A fake fight with a Boss in her own Team on an issue at TTDI.
    8. She suggested to stop condo development to reduce traffic congestion. Unfortunately, developers do not build cemeteries for the dead which are the only places without traffic congestion in town.
    9. A suggestion to strengthen the Law to prevent domestic abuse which I thought was a police matter under the Penal Code.
    10. Her Minister has not spoken a word since 9 May 2018 !

    I would give the Federal Government full marks in comparison to the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs and SOEs.

    With the sudden rise in the prices of a barrel of oil and the palm oil, it augurs well for our beloved Malaysia in the year to come, 2020. The revenues accrued by the Government which now has a clean set of books, are well-managed by the FM. A Supplementary Budget to boost the economy should be in the offing by March 2020.. With a strengthening economy, the banks ensnared in property development and O & G enterprises would have their risks reduced significantly. But the most urgent task at hand is to provide jobs for the citizens and projects which serve a practical purpose for all.

    It is my fervent hope that the Kulim International Airport with 2 runways and a Development Complex will take off soon in conjunction with the transformation of the old Paya Lebar Airport into a New George Town and more. Such a visionary project will have beneficial fall-outs reaching, Perlis, Kelantan, Trengganu, Perak and Pahang and eventually to the rest of Malaysia including Sabah and Sarawak. The announcement itself should be electrifying in public relations terms.

    And the New and Incorruptible Government has adopted a dynamic and beneficial FOREIGN POLICY in relation to all the friends of our beloved Malaysia AND NOT DRAWN DOWN BY THE HOT RELATIONSHIPS AND CLOSE PROXIMITY “FOUR EYES” PRIVATE RETREATS AS DISHED OUT BY THE SINGAPOREAN MEDIA.

    THIS FOREIGN POLICY IS IN KEEPING WITH THE FACT THAT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IS NOW ONE OF THE FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA since 9 May 2018. Where are you Singapore ? Thanks to the Leadership of our wise, brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Without the Tun, our beloved Malaysia would have been enslaved by the Lee Kuan Yew created TPPA/CPTPP forever. Just look at BREXIT. The EU made it so very difficult for the UK to exit.

    Our beloved Malaysia is now FREE from the parasitic symbiotic relationship with tiny Singapore 2004-2018. We do Foreign Policy our style without foreign external influence.

    Tun,

    One thousand kudos or even one million kudos to our YB MAZLEE for the creation of an English Teachers Force of 70,000 to improve the standard of English amongst our young students and workers.

    YB MAZLEE has finally hit the golden nail right on its head after many near misses like black shoes, free breakfasts, a friend from expensive KIM ENG SECURITIES to be a VC etc !

    YB MAZLEE learns fast and is on his way to be a rare Malay treasure, an elite like our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin (Wolfson), Dato Seri Sharil Redza Ridzuan of Christ’s College, Cambridge and neophytes Azmin and SADDIQ – the very thin Red Line of Malay elite.

    The Constitution stipulates that non-Malay elite cannot move without joining hands with the Malays elite. Hence, our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is painstakingly re-building the 3 generations of Malay elite which destroyed themselves through self-indulgence and self-immolation 1957-2018 ! So many of my Malay friends fell at this time.

    Any language must not be politicised.

    The English language like Mandarin is a lingua franca for practical use in public life and commerce recognised the World over. To put a cap on the English language is like enslaving the 99% of the Rakyat by the ruling 1% of the political Leadership clique. The English language like Mandarin has no political connotations. For those mischievous digits who try to do otherwise is a great injustice to the Rakyat at large. Likewise, Mandarin which is just a language with no historical or cultural or religious connotations or hang-ups or hang-overs.

    I have always said that anyone with the motivation and the will may learn any language in just 3 months. When I was a boy refugee in India, I could speak Urdu, Hindi, and Anglo-Indian English. No problem. My mind was unadulterated without any chauvinism.

    We can see the beauty of the English language as expressed by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and my friend, TWIN PEAKS in this distinguished Blog.

    India which was a great democracy until she tainted herself recently with the anti-Muslim Citizenship Bill, is bolstered by her 350 million English speaking Indians. We see them in the US Congress, the Houses of Parliament and the top industrial echelon of the World.

    India has an Education Silicon Valley in the lush fauna and flora region of Dehra Dun and Mussoorie by the foothills of the high Himalayas about 200 miles from New Delhi. There are many education institutions there from the Doon School to the world famous Forestry Institute of India and the Military Academy which our very own Tun Hussein Onn attended, together with many Western administered schools and colleges which India did not disrupt but built upon since the 19th Century. India’s approach to the English Language serves her National Interest and not her elected representatives interest. This is what it should be in every great Nation.

    A working force of at least 150,000 English teachers is a must to gain momentum at this opportunity and for all time. The simplest method for English must be used for it to catch on. In fact, I found many young Malay girls working in the Malls speak perfect English with no hang-ups or hang-overs. May be the Government should begin with those Civil Servants first !

    It is my honest belief that all teachers should be well rewarded. It is time YB MAZLEE should consider this. Our loyalty to our beloved Malaysia is one thing but our loyalty and duty to look after our families is another even though both are just as important. With the concomitant reduction of corruption and the rise of a clean Government, there should be money for worthwhile causes like paying the teachers well in the National Interest.

    Congratulations to YB MAZLEE and the New and Incorruptible Government for taking the first step of a thousand kilometres.

    There is much hope for our beloved Malaysia as one of the 4 most important countries in the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia to rise like the phoenix from the ashes of Corruption created by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    Our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat were saved just in time by the wisdom, brilliance and courage of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    Man proposes. God disposes.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem In you, we all TRUST.

    Tun

    How many Malaysians noticed how The Star issue on Saturday 14 December 2019 achieved the sublime to the ridiculous ?

    On Page 2 of the paper, I felt immensely proud to see the colour pictures of our DYMM Yang Di Pertuan Agong and the Permaisuri Agong standing abreast with Her Majesty the Queen at Buckingham Palace, London and our Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad visiting the Chairperson of the Qatar Foundation on his official visit to Qatar.

    This is the stuff which makes us the Rakyat proud, strong and united when our top personalities do their due duty in the National Interest of our beloved Malaysia and not hang out in some foreign joint or play 19th hole golf in Perth or Hawaii.

    And at the back page, The Star shot itself in the foot by ridiculously displaying a photo of The Great Helmsman in colour WHICH DID NOT SHOW IN ANYWAY HE HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE NEWS CAPTION.

    What is the intention of The Star Editorship trying to polish apples of a distant foreign country ?

    Or some would say The Star has TRIPLE LOYALTIES treating us Malaysians as small boys or girls who did not notice ! It is not only absurd. It is Stupid with a capital S.

    NOT ONLY THAT, UNINTENTIONALLY OR OTHERWISE, THE STAR EDITORSHIP REVEALED ITS DUPLICITY AND DOWNRIGHT ANTI-NATIONAL INTEREST BY PROMOTING A FOREIGN POWER which has nothing to do with us.

    MY FRIEND TWIN PEAKS WOULD HAVE SAID IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS, ‘ GO BACK TO CHINA. ‘

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Malaysian media must be aware where their loyalty lies in our Nation building efforts or which side of their bread is buttered. Blind disloyalty is not only dangerous and treasonous. It shows.

  81. mubarakchan Dec 14,2019 1:36 PM

    Tun

    Here are 3 headlines which should enlighten the mind-sets of certain Malaysians, thus

    1. ” CAVIAR QUEEN, CHINESE ROE REIGNS AROUND THE WORLD. ”

    China is famous for producing fake milk, rice and all types of edible foods laced with poison. But in the production of caviar from the sturgeon in a large and clear fresh water lake in North Eastern China, it is now claimed the caviar produced is on par with the best from the Caspian Sea of Iran and Russia. The Chinese are now attempting to tease the palate of President Donald Trump with this delicacy,

    China’s attempts to mimic the expensive food products of the West hit a chord right here in Kuala Lumpur. The other day, I bought a packet of blue cheese which was priced at about RM 13 which I thought was a bargain. French blue cheese costs RM 30. One midnight, I opened the packet to eat the cheese which I found to have a sour taste. I looked at the label which showed the blue cheese was made in Shanghai but was imported by Singapore.

    In a flash, I realise this would be exactly the sort of gimmick which will be played on us Malaysians with the implementation of the TPPA/CPTPP – cheating the Malaysians with cheap and sub-standard products which would flood in tariff free via Singapore.

    2. ” LEARN FROM SINGAPORE TO IMPROVE PUBLIC TRANSPORT ”

    This Penang fellow must be Rip Van Winkle or from Mars. His only role model is Singapore’s obsolete 20th Century economic model which does not deliver the goods anymore.

    In recent years, the MRT System of Singapore broke down with regularity. It began with a Malaysian woman who was a Ferrari enthusiast. She was appointed the CEO with a penchant of creating shopping malls underground. Soon, the trains began to break-down. One after another ex-generals were despatched to rectify the fault which has not been rectified to this day. The Singaporean trains still broke down with irregular regularity. However, it is alleged Singapore has a stock of 50 ex-generals to draw upon.

    Not only that, at the time of the Little India riots a few years ago, 100 bus drivers down tools and walked off the job.

    This Penang fellow was brain-washed in the 20th Century by Lee Kuan Yew.

    3. ” ROS HAULS UP 3 SOCIETIES BEHIND HAT YAI PEACE ACCORD MEMORIAL ”

    As we all perceived that our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will make a decision on the future of his job, the crypto-communists since 1989 made the first move with the unseen ashes and the Peoples’ Assembly 2019 in Kajang. Some one seemed to have given the signal.

    Tan Sri Dr C.C. Too had exhorted generations of our military and police top officials that even though the CPM seemed to have been defeated, they would return in another form. C.C. Too was the most senior Chinese Adviser on Counter-insurgency to the Federal Government of Malaysia, 1951-1992.

    Kudos to the PDRM and the ROS for take steps to probe under the Laws.

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

    Malaysian Boleh Tun as always. No problem In you we all TRUST.

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    You are certainly right in your comment that the United Kingdom is now somewhat like our beloved Malaysia especially Boris Johnson said that the Britons live in the greatest Democracy in the World. We could not be the First but the Second best because our Democratic System though quite young and seldom tested since 1957 could oust the World’s Most Corrupt Leaders through the ballot box in a wise, brilliant and courageous move by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    The United Kingdom is out of the European Union in 6 weeks time, according to the Prime Minister.

    A most significant headline this morning, thus

    ” TORIES WIN LANDSLIDE VICTORY ”

    Congratulations to Prime Minister Boris Johnson whose grand-father was a Turkish Foreign Minister and the Conservative Party for winning the General Election by a massive margin. This augurs well for our beloved Malaysia and ASEAN which Britain knows well.

    In 1972, when Britain opted to join the EU by 1976, I was aghast that she could make such a dastardly move which went against all that Britain represented and fought for centuries on the Continent. I felt the historical baggage which she carried would pull her down. Indeed, this did by way of the unacceptable laws which came out of EU Brussels concomitant with the mass immigration.

    Not only that, the huge wave of immigrants which flooded into Britain beginning 1976 brought its toll eg. the cost of NHS began to rise, crimes and all anti-social behaviour increased to this day.

    In 1982, I asked the History Fellow of Jesus College, Cambridge his view of this immigration. He told me that the Fall of Rome was not due to the Barbarians at the Gate but the many foreigners within Rome.

    It is proper and fitting that Britain should be its own Master again and take on the World with both hands like in the days of Sir Walter Releigh. Our beloved Malaysia should seize this opportunity with both hands to join hands with Britain to do things whatever for mutual benefit.

    Our DYMM Yang Di Pertuan Agong and Permaisuri Agong are in the right place and at the right time. A very fine monarch who cares for the Rakyat and the World. Daulat Tuanku.

    With the opportunity at hand, our beloved Malaysia should now have no hang-ups or hang-overs with the English Language because it is only a Language like Mandarin with no Political connotation and used by all countries World Wide for commercial and eclectic purposes of any kind. To be negative about the English Language is to shoot ourselves in the foot or self-immolation. Both are undesirable for progress in the National Interest as one of the 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland, Malaysia since 9 May 2018

    There are recent international reports that the standard of English in both Malaysia and Singapore has fallen.

    On the recent UK General Elections, it was the British Nationalism which held sway over common garden issues. The looming threat of a right-wing Germany dominating the EU through the promulgation of the laws. It is only proper that Britain opted to get out of this unholy union. AS WE CAN ALL SEE, IT WAS EASY TO GET MARRIED TO THE EU. BUT EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO GET OUT.

    LET ALL RAKYAT BE WARNED THAT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WAS BETRAYED BY THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 AND THE EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE AND GLCs/SOEs BY SIGNING LEE KUAN YEW’S TPPA/CPTPP WHICH IS AS YET UNRATIFIED. This Lee Kuan Yew TPPA/CPTPP will enslave our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat forever. The Agreement is a 50 volume document meant to BEFUDDLE THE MALAYSIANS who are lackadaisical about small print in documents. Even the most unequal Agreement in the World – the 1962 Water Agreement was only one page and yet this was able to out-fox the Malaysians for 50 years or half a century.

    Fortunately, Man proposes. God disposes. Our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat were saved by our wise, brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    The benefits which Britain may bring to ASEAN are manifold. It is even better if the bland and uninspiring Leadership of Singapore decides to confederate with Britain in their interest of self-survival as equal partners.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. A new World political watershed has now been created overnight for the benefit of the World and ASEAN.

    My heartiest congratulations to the Malaysian Contingent to the SEA Games Manila 2019 for doing so well despite the lack of support for 14 years by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs. Also, the Contingent had to compete and win against all odds when the home Nation included many non-Olympic sports to win more gold medals for themselves. And there was Singapore with the Great Wall of China consisting of 4th rate Chinese athletes purchased by Lee Kuan Yew in the last century to bolster tiny Singapoer’s ambitions.

    Sports is the best amalgam for Unity for a Nation like ours.

    Both the Tunku and Tun Abdul Razak placed great emphasis on the sports as a unifying factor in Malaysia.

    Tun Abdul Razak and Tun Tan Siew Sin gave me the mandate to re-structure the Selangor Shooting Association in 1965 so that all communities could enjoy the sport of target shooting.

    The Association was controlled by 33 Hakka Chinese. I amended the Association’s Constitution. There are now over 2,000 members from all communities with many Malay target shooters in any contingent going overseas. Not only that the Association has over RM 2 million in the bank.

    By 1972, Malaysia won its first Gold Medal in Trap Shooting at the Asian Games, Teheran.

    But in the SEA Games 2019, the shooting team did not come up to the mark due to neglect by the BN Government 2004-2018. Their results were dismal.

    The key to the control and management of Sports in Malaysia is the Olympic Council of Malaysia. Dead-wood was in control apparently for over 30 years when nothing was done to put Squash into the Olympic schedule. Therefore Malaysia lost over 10 Gold, Silver and Bronze medals via Dato Nicole David and her team. Squash with a history of over 100 years is played all over the World by major Nations. Fringe sports like moguls were included over and above squash with their limited audience in temperate climate countries.

    I have noted the lack of mental and physical fitness of Malaysian athletes in competition. In the 2012 London Olympics, our World Champion was leading Lin Dan in the 3rd set at 19-17. He lost. It was obvious to me that Lin Dan had the winning edge in mental and physical fitness.

    Similarly, the Malaysian mixed doubles pair should have won at Manila. The same old Malaysian story was told. Leading in the 3rd and final game but lost the match. This mishaps happened so often that sometimes I would turned off the TV when Malaysians are leading in the 3rd and final game. I could not bear the sight of the sub-standard performances sometimes.

    Apart from selecting the best athletes from the higher educational institutions to have mental quality athlete, it pays to improve the nutritional intake of all athletes based on a scientific basis. At least one full time doctor a specialist in sports medicine should be employed to check all athletes. Mental and physical conditioning are important attributes on a long term basis -our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s mind-set.

    All athletes should be well-rewarded especially those who won medals. Adequate monetary rewards, scholarships, jobs, affordable housing, cars etc. etc. should be the order of the day. Officials too should be rewarded.

    The effect of rewards has a beneficial leverage well-beyond measurement in terms of human development towards the ultimate goal of our beloved Malaysia’s Unity, Peace and Harmony. This is honest and transparent money for the benefit of all unlike the theft of billions of ringgits by the corrupt BN Government 2004-2018 when a present could be bought at RM 500,000 at the drop of the hat. Corruption indeed corrupted values.

    YB SADDIQ is the right person in the right place. With his skills and acumen based on the support of the New and Incorruptible Government as led by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the next Malaysian Sporting Contingent to go overseas will achieve much success.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem in Malaysia’s World of Sports.

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    You are an elite from Sabah, TWIN PEAKS, You can contribute much to our beloved Malaysia, beautiful Sabah and Sarawak, great environment for eco-tourism, safe, beautiful and exotic. Where else but Sabah and Sarawak, Malaysia.

    You have brought up points which I agree entirely but much less voluble. I had good advisors being Tan Sri Dr C.C. Too the most Senior Adviser to the Federal Government on Counter-Insurgency 1950-1992. and the UMNO Youth amongst others.

    The key to the whole Malaysia scenario is the LEADERSHIP.

    On this important factor the whole of our beloved Malaysia, Life or Death rests. Hence, on this score I would support any Leader as proposed by our wise, brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who is the best person to make that fateful decision.

    If the top is rotten, then the body automatically follows as well-illustrated by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    And with a country like our beloved Malaysia full of good peoples, natural resources in abundance and a strong tradition of stable Governments since 1957, how to mis-govern ? Indeed, the most unlikely and unexpected episode in our long history happened due to human weakness for self-indulgence which led to self-immolation.

    Believe it or not, the whole lot of elite was affected except for one from Christ’s College, Cambridge. Imagine, cheap 4th rate paintings in London were bought by to-ing and fro-ing between the two capitals with public money by participants who should know better !

    And which is the foreign culprit in the Malaysian wood pile – Singapore the World’s Best Nation in the World !

    Like these events, how to put our beloved Malaysia on the map of economic and industrial success on par with at least Singapore !

    That was 14 years gone in a jiffy with golf in Perth, Yunnan, Bali etc, parties with the white powder in, London, New York, Milan, Paris or what have you on Government expense.

    Not only that instead of buying up the Rolex company, the folks collected 10,000 Rolex watches so to speak. Without fail, our ringgit plummeted as there are no secrets in this World and our SEA Games 2019 results will be dismal, having lost our Will to compete with the Wide Wide World but took the easy way out by grabbing what belonged to others, the Rakyat.

    From time immemorial, what we all have seen in our beloved Malaysia was nothing new. It is as old as the hills. Hence, the placement of the proper and qualified digits in position of Power hold sway over all other factors like polishing the apples of superiors with beaming faces and loud laughs to draw attention.

    TWIN PEAKS, no matter how hard anyone tries to put the right DIGIT as the head honcho, there Is no guarantee of success as our beloved Tun had found out with his two immediate predecessors, one was alleged to be a secretary from Tun Abdul Razak’s NOC 1970 and the other with a superb and impeccable background or Wealth, FAME and Power. In the background, we could see the serpent lurking in ambush as always with red hot relationships and very private close proximity retreats !

    Man proposes. God disposes. All will be well if our beloved Malaysia continues on the present path of normal governance with proper policies for the Rakyat. No more. No less. Like this success will come in due course. As our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad always said that it is the mind-sets or a qualified Leader with the proper mind-set.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem with our beloved Malaysia’s problems provided we have elite like Twin Peaks with the proper mind-set as our Leader like you !

  90. twinpeaks Dec 7,2019 1:58 PM

    In my opinion, the real reason why Malaysia is not progressing as it should have and should be right now in the industrialised world, is this:

    1) The Bumiputera government treats the abundance of natural resources, especially petroleum, as its easy main source of income to sustain an over-sized and over-built civil service, designed to absorb Bumiputera workforce since Independence. It is the same all over Malaysia, whether in KL or in KK.

    2) The Chinese-dominated private sector are only interested in non-manufacturing industries that do not require long-term gestation period of R & D that does not guarantee quick financial results. The Chinese are more interested in making as much money as possible while the community is allowed to stay in the country, such that if there is any more trouble like in 1969, they have enough money to start a new life in a Western country. Thus their basic business formula is.. FAST IN, FAST OUT. Construction industry is the perfect business for the Chinese because they build quickly and then transfer all liabilities to the end-users, whether government or condo-purchasers. Liquidity is paramount to the Chinese, CASH IS KING to them. That mantra is caught by the previous corrupted government. If there is a teacher, there is a student.

    That is the plain truth one cannot run away from. The sooner the power-that-be realize this, the better for the country. There is absolutely no point in trying to justify a bad result with all kinds of excuses. One can give all kinds of excuses, but that will not solve your problem. It will still be there the next morning you rise. That simple.

  91. mubarakchan Dec 6,2019 11:43 PM

    Tun

    Twin Peaks has brought up many interesting points on the non-performance of the industrial aspect of our beloved Malaysia to this day. However, he did not mention that South Korea and Taiwan are countries with no natural resources unlike Malaysia.

    It is the abundance of natural resources for export which spoilt us like petroleum, timber etc. The easily available resources to gain money for the country.

    He did not mention that the political and socio-economic structure of South Korea and Taiwan is different from Malaysia which emerged from a colonial country into independence. South Korea and Taiwan are so called ‘old countries’ with decades of socio-economic advancement already in place. What these countries needed were the technical know-how and the US market – and they are off to the higher tiers of development.

    We may recall that it was 13 May 1969 which became the watershed for our socio-economic development with the British owning 70%, the Chinese 25% and the Malays 2% of the economy.

    It was through the wisdom of Tun Abdul Razak and his team that the NEP Policy came about to create a level playing field for all.

    And from 1957 to 1972, the Policy of the British Colonial Currency Board was practised with the country forced to spend only want it earned. This resulted in having an illiquid economy in an emerging country which inhabitants expected much for their new found freedom.

    Therefore, with a Malaysian Ringgit which was stronger than the Singapore Dollar 1972-1980, Malaysia’s changed tack to have a weaker ringgit to support the exports arising from the commodities, the products of the FTZ and other domestic manufactures in support of our beloved Tun’s visionary and sound Policies for the Rakyat. All these sectors provided employment to the Rakyat from the late 1970s to the 1990s throughout the country.

    With a beautiful hindsight, the Policy of the 22 year Administration of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad did well to provide employment to the Rakyat and created more space by other significant infrastructural developments. If not for the crooked closest aides who should have reported back to Tun that their tasks could not be achieve so that he could rectify without much damage or scandal, all of them crossed the red-line of no return and lost billions of ringgits in doing so in addition to their thefts of money. That was a fact. That was the real situation where Malaysia failed to put the final pieces of industry together eg. Proton, Perwaja, Bakun Dam, shipyards, aviation etc. Despite these scandals, it was a lesson well-learnt.

    Those who came after the Tun from 2004-2018, had the golden opportunity to press further in the National Interest. But before they could say ‘Malaysia’, their Government became a Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs which brought our beloved country down on her knees and put us all Rakyat to shame by indulging in weakness of the flesh and self-immolation.

    That was the past, 2004-2018. That was how our beloved Malaysia did not breach US10,000 per capita.

    With the wonderful country (RM 350 Billion debt) left to these Singaporean Puppets Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018, it was the perfect base to build upon on all things, a fine Civil Service, education, social welfare, up-lift of poverty, affordable housing, proper policies etc. Non of these happened but a huge financial rape and wanton theft of the Country’s assets which Singapore was involved as well. All Projects were huge and geared to padding of the contracts.

    Hence, it is good to note that the New and Incorruptible Government can count on its successes since 9 May 2018 by just putting all in a normal stance and look forward to 2020 and beyond for the proper substantive investment Policies to come like the humongous Kulim International Airport with 2 runways Complex, embracing with fall-out Penang, Perlis, Perak, Kelantan, Trengganu and Pahang. Augmented by Tun Dr Daim’s view of the potential of our neglected horti-agriculture industry and the conservation of our coastal resources for the fisheries industry in crabs, squids, fish, shrimps and eco-tourism in conjunction with the proposed halal food production for export to be developed jointly by FELDA and LTAT. And finally, the multi=pronged e-biz which has always been suggested by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

    Hopefully, with the advent of 2020, many sound enterprises will be launched in keeping with a Supplementary Budget as part of a stimulus. Thanks to the YB in charge of the Ministry of Finance, the Government can rest assured that its books are kept clean and tidy.

    And with the latest reports of US has an unemployment rate of 3.5% with rising prices of palm oil and petroleum, the sky is the limit for our beloved Malaysia in 2020.

    Twin Peaks. It was easier for South Korea and Taiwan to achieve better income per capita than Malaysia because historically they were actually more advanced than colonial Malaya which was created to serve a colonial master.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. We will be up there with Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan under your Leadership.

    On the National Hobby of Property and Infrastructure Development, whilst I can understand the need for sourcing internally either through public infrastructure development or private consumption in the property sector, during a global economic downturn, it is SHEER stupidity to continue it during a booming global economic time. And the world has seen so many economic booms since Malaysia took control of its own economy from the British in 1957.

    This country, in its mindless pre-occupation with the construction industry has drained itself dry of precious financial and technical resources, which could critically had been used for more productive purpose. These limited resources, financial and human, could have been diverted to industries that could have laid the foundation for the country to propel itself at the same time as South Korea was Actually doing the right thing themselves.

    So, like Tun reflected whilst he was in South Korea last week, where he said it is just incredible that both Malaysia and South Korea were at the same per capita income in the 1960s. And yet today, whilst we still languish at USD10,000 per capita income, the Koreans are well above the USD30,000 level.

    Amazing, isn’t it.

  93. twinpeaks Dec 5,2019 6:12 PM

    I just want to say that how relieved I am that Tun has Finally said it in public that those who hold power in government SHOULD give room for the younger generation to give ideas on how to improve this country.

    Let me tell of an incident I had just experienced this week. I am a young entrepreneur, who likes to bring new ideas into the business world of this country. So I wrote to this Ministry at Putrajaya several weeks ago if I can go to their premises to pitch a new idea on how to develop the country, culturally and financially. So, the Ministry set up a meeting for me to pitch the thingy in my head, this week. I went an hour in advance of the meeting, then only to be told at the last minute that the Datuk Pengarah who was to chair my presentation, had to attend to another urgent meeting. So, I and several other high-level bureaucrats who were invited from two other Ministries waited for the Datuk Pengarah and three others of the Ministry to arrive and chair the meeting. Finally, after two hours delay from the original set time, we started.

    I introduced myself quickly and went straight into the meat of the presentation, outlining and detailing the ideas that I would like to develop further with the assistance of the Ministry. And guess what the response from the Datuk Pengarah was. I won’t say his exact words, but basically he said that his Ministry does not deal with the idea that I had in mind, BECAUSE they had never done it before. Now, here is the beautiful part. He then “pushed” the idea to his invited colleagues from the other Ministries, saying that they were probably more suitable Ministries to approach. What this Datuk Pengarah was basically saying was that, he only wanted to deal with ideas and projects that the Ministry had been handling since the time it existed. Since Independence, in other words.

    So, I went ballistic, nicely of course. In a low but firm voice, I gave them a tongue-lashing. They were all shocked! Can you believe this??? My sarcastic response suddenly registered into their minds of these bureaucrats, and the meeting ended up with a promise by the Ministry to look further into the idea that I had just pitched to them. The two other invited Ministries also promised to do the same. So, these Ministries can expect to hear from me again, soon!

    But here is the thing though. Just imagine if another young but soft-spoken entrepreneur had pitched my idea. He would have probably lasted only 2 minutes after his presentation, before the Datuk Pengarah ended the meeting. Well, not in my case. we were still in that conference room 30 minutes after the presentation ended.

    So Tun, maybe you don’t know what goes on behind your back, in Putrajaya. And I am not saying that all Ministries have this kind of attitude. But beware of what would happen to your vision of making this country a developed economy, that is the envy of, or at least considered at par by, other developed countries. Despite been shown public admiration by leaders of the West, especially in front of you, we don’t really know what they Actually think of our country.

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS

    Your comments on what has happened in our beloved Malaysia to-day is absolutely correct. The heavy emphasis on property developments, big and small. Do you know the reason why ?

    Since Merdeka, because of the political power structure in the country from the Federal to the States, construction provided employment, revenue and development for economic progress. This unique feature of Malaysia’s politics and economics suited the requirements of all parties very well which is generally known as a win-win situation for all. Things were well under control until after October 2003. After this, all possibilities were possible with money being created like confetti based on GDV calculations. Hence, there are many empty skyscrapers in the country today and many townships as well. The cost of the huge enhanced values is borne by the banks ! This explains a situation which is over-clouded with corruption.

    In China, this problem is 10,000 bigger. In a town, the Mayor and the Party Secretary come into play with the developers and the banks. This power structure is exactly the same as in Malaysia.

    The dilemma in Malaysia today whether it is political or socio-economic rests with the Leadership which our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had tried to explain by emphasising on mind-sets.

    Our beloved Malaysia’s stable, balanced and progressive stance went out of the window after October 2003 when the pleasures of the soft-under belly took precedence over normal 9 a.m.- 5 p.m work.

    When the Leadership went for golf, travel and play, the elite followed and the rest of the satraps as well. This fun and games at public money and time expense went on for 14 long years which destroyed all that was good which was accumulated since 1957. In other words, all went for easy money which from the hundreds of millions of ringgits before 2003 had been turned into billions of ringgits to satiate the greed.

    Amidst this degenerate environment the infamous Sime Darby Berhad went bankrupt again in 2010 for the second time at RM 2.10 Billion by the same Management which was not sacked after the first bankruptcy of 1996 at RM 1.20 Billion. THE PNB HAD TO BAIL OUT SIME DARBY TWICE AND BECAME A MAJORITY SHAREHOLDER.

    Since 1996, Sime Darby’s contribution to the National Effort is negligible due to the fact that it reverted back to a fine British type of trading agency doing business in plantations, selling cars for others and into property development in direct competition with the locals.

    And worst of all, Sime Darby pandered to expats/overseas interests by way of small businesses in Australasia and Hong Kong which fitted in with the Management’s travelling agenda.

    To this day, Sime Darby never took its rightful place as a Forbes 500 as a mover and shaker in the National Interest by way of acquiring engineering companies in UK or autos like Volvo, Jaguar, Land Rover etc for Malaysian interests.

    Sime Darby came into Malaysian control in 1975 through the Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak and YBM Tengku Razaleigh support of my 1972 Concept to fast trek Malays into big business and give the Chinese a leeway to do business when on 13 May 1969, the Malays had 2% of the economy, the British 70% of the best assets and the Chinese 25% of the third rate. For my effort, a felonious MCA Leader who took advantage of Sime Darby many times, called me ” A MALAY BUM-SUCKER “. With this call, he went on to cheat the Chinese in more ways than one.

    Sime Darby remained diminished in stature with the same colonial type of businesses except for a hasty investment of RM 2 Billion to develop a port on the backside of China which it now wants to sell.

    In 1982, I proposed Sime Darby to take-over all the bunkering ports for palm oil in China. The Management reported they set up a small facility at Port Said, Egypt. Ten years later all the palm oil bunkering facilities of China were controlled by KLK, IOI and the Kuok Group.

    And strangely, a Sime Darby Foundation was established in a company majority controlled by another Trust, PNB. I suppose this is one toy at Trustee’s expense for the boys to play with !

    I do not understand why countries like India put great store into the English language which was not interfered with even after Independence in 1947, and some countries do not appreciate English as a language for progress, commerce and future development of all things. India’s 350 Million English speaking Indians are the bulwark of India’s progress and achievements in today’s World led by the West.

    The Leadership of a country is based on the quality and abundance of elite. It was laughable when the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 set up a special Unit to garner talent. This ploy is obviously based on their belief that CASH IS KING or money can buy anything. This failed without any doubt.

    WITHOUT A CREDIBLE MASS OF MALAY ELITE HOW CAN A CREDIBLE MALAY LEADERSHIP FOR ALL TIME BE ACHIEVED ?

    Look at the property market today. The BN Leadership failed to lead 2004-2018 which affected the shakers and movers below of non-Malay elite. This resulted in NO REVENUE for the Government. This is the result of NO POLICIES 2004-2018 to safeguard the existing economy and the future economy which is NOW.

    Hence, good Leadership with VISION is a must for any Government which ranks must be from credible Malay elite by the thousands of qualified elite.

    No matter how hard I tried, I could come up with only three, our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin and Dato Seri Sharil Redza Ridzuan of Christ’s College, Cambridge and 2 neophytes, Azmin and SADDIQ ! The thin Red Line !

    Therefore, TWIN PEAKS, without being long winded, our beloved Malaysia has to treasure the following :-

    1 GOOD AND CREDIBLE LEADERSHIPS with a Malay elite pool of thousands. No fakes or copy-cats.

    2. AN EDUCATION WHICH SERVES THE NEEDS NOT ONLY OF THE STUDENTS BUT THEIR FUTURE JOBS AS WELL. Young students should not be used as political pawns. Languages should be treated as languages and not as political footballs.

    3. MANY COMPANIES LIKE SIME DARBY DO NOT SERVE THE NATIONAL INTEREST BUT ONLY THE MANAGEMENT’S SELF INTEREST AND INDULGENCE which are all related to pleasure and enjoyment whatever this means. I wonder if Sime Darby has still got a huge yacht with 4 bedrooms in Hong Kong !

    4. A LARGE POOL OF MALAY ELITE RANGING UP TO THOUSANDS OF QUALIFIED TALENT AND NOT FAKES FOR THE GOVERNMENT AND THE PRIVATE SECTOR.

    Finally, Dear Twin Peaks, if these four essentials could be put together, we would have achieved at least 50% of our ideals in the National Interest with our Ringgit strengthened.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem if all think and act the same like you ! Acheh !

    Iskandar Waterfront Holdings issued a statement that it is planning to raise at least $1 bn. in IPO next year, with their eyes on realizing the Bandar Malaysia mega-project. It stated, typical of a Malaysian corporation, that Bandar Baru will give it a “national footprint” rather than just focusing on Southern Johor, where they are building a lot of white elephants.

    This is the typical business plans of big-money corporations in this country. Swishing money around inside the nation, changing money from one hand to another, in other words completely self-serving. This is the common practice since independence. And governments after governments meanwhile focusing their plans on the pursuit of agriculture and mining to lift the standard of living of the STILL poor rural people.

    No wonder we are getting absolutely nowhere. What a waste of life.

  96. twinpeaks Dec 4,2019 1:10 PM

    The government can never be expected to lead spending on production, instead of on impression or marketing. This is for the private sector, the big companies. But alas, in Malaysia, the Bursa listed companies are more interested in coming up with the most beautiful and tallest skyscapers in the world, or more high-class suburbs. NONE are interested in exploiting the latest technology available from the West and Israel in Artificial Intelligence, miniaturized manufacturing, BIG Data and so on. Money resource wasted is opportunity lost forever.

    It is easy for the armchair critics to say that the government is not doing anything to improve the education system. That is not the problem. THE problem is, no matter how many AI experts the government produce, there are no employment opportunities for the graduates, because the Chinese-run corporations in this country are ONLY interested in coming up with more unproductive but impressive high-class condominiums and tall buildings in Kuala Lumpur especially. The governments and corporations in Penang and Johor, too, are ONLY interested in reclaiming more land in the sea in order to build so-called NEW CITIES, as if the present ones are not impressive enough. Then there is the Chief Minister of Penang who would like to see a beautiful and impressive new airport that can place Penang on the same level as KLIA.

    So, with this third world mindset, there is NEVER a way, that Malaysia will EVER catch up with other developed countries. The status of developed country, even if we are given one by the international community, is very hollow. There is NO substance to it.

    What the country needs IS NOT more skyscrapers and super highways, what it Needs is a more productive economy. At the moment, Malaysia is onward to become a developed country WITH a third world economy. Amazing, isn’t it.

    In our beloved Malaysia, as soon as I thought It was going to be peace and quiet, up popped the returned ashes bolstered by the Kajang Peoples’ Assemby 2019.

    This event threw a spanner into the works or planning of quite a few plans for the future.

    An the most interesting observation was that no one observed the ashes !

    With the new old kid in the political block, we Malaysians who are cognizance of the plot must with a sigh realise THAT THE BATTLE FOR THE HEARTS AND MINDS OFTHE MALAYSIANS CHINESE BEGINS ALL OVER AGAIN !

    And who are these Malaysian Chinese we are talking about ?

    1. THE RETURNED MCP IN A NEW FORM LIKE THEIR EMBEDDED SUPPORTERS SINCE 1989 WILL SPEAK WITH AN AMERICAN ACCENT, AMERICAN EDUCATED, PROFICIENT IN BAHASA MELAYU, MANDARIN AND ENGLISH. THE FAMILY OWNS A LISTED COMPANY ON THE BURSA BUT THEIR HEARTS AND MINDS ARE STRICTLY WITH DADDY WHEREVER HE IS. This lot of returned Chinese now numbers 20%-30% of the Malaysian Chinese ! This is the Third Force in Malaysian Chinese Politics based on the glittering rise of China.

    2. THE DAP RUMP WHICH LOST THE HARD-CORE TYPES BUT COMBINED WITH THE RM 2 TAX-FREE INCORPORATED CHURCH MEMBERS, HAS LOST ITS ATTRACTION BY BECOMING THE THE RULER. Many of its flock will vote for the returned MCP if the latter failed to take-over the DAP in time and before 2039. The DAP will find it difficult to explain to the complainants ! This is the weakening Second Force in Malaysian Chinese Politics which reached its peak on 9 May 2018 ! From here, it is all down-hill for the DAP with its wings clipped. DAP can still count on 30% of the Malaysian Chinese who remember Lee Kuan Yew. But this will soon fade into history.

    3. THE MCA with its KMT origins of long ago can keep on dreaming about their deja vu power which is lost forever in the wash especially with the arrival of the barbarians at the gates of KL ! No matter how much the MCA spends in time, money and effort, it has become a relic of Malaysian Political history. It is their money which bogs them down. MCA has 5%-10% of the Malaysian Chinese support for old times sake.

    4. The uncommitted Malaysian Chinese who will never admit that they are for any Political Party may be as high as 30% of the total Malaysian Chinese population. These are very likely to emigrate if well-off.

    5. The Constitution minded or Nationalist like myself may be only a mere 5% – 10% of the Malaysian Chinese population.

    What does the above breakdown of the affiliations of the Malaysian Chinese tell us ?

    1. First, the lack of real and true Malaysian Chinese Political Leadership in Malaya/Malaysia since 1951. Even if the UMNO Leadership wanted to help in the past, it would not have been able to help because the Chinese were not politically minded.

    2. Second, Lee Kuan Yew is shown to be directly responsible for the dire state of Malaysian Chinese politics today 1966-2019.

    3. Third, generally the English educated Chinese are not only apolitical, they eschew politics of any kind. But the Mandarin speaking Chinese turned out to be more civic minded. Hence, their political involvement.

    4. Fourth, with the returned of the ashes WHICH NO ONE HAS SEEN, bolstered by the Kajang Peoples’ Assembly 2019, the BATTLE FOR THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE MALAYSIAN CHINESE HAS BEGUN ALL OVER AGAIN.

    5. Fifth, ALL OUR FRIENDS AROUND THE WORLD HAVE TAKEN NOTICE OF THE BARBARIANS AT THE GATES OF KL. This is when Good Governance and Transparency with Fair-play and Justice begin by our New and Incorruptible Government of the Old and the Young, the Good and the Great.

    6. Sixth, the declining Political Power of the Malaysian Chinese is clear in the future, very clear. The towns will be hot-beds of political activities of all kinds.

    7. Seventh, Forewarned is forearmed.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. All of a sudden, we have to do the same all over again !

    Both Australia and New Zealand have highways and roads that can be considered inferior if these were seen in Malaysia. In the United Kingdom, you can hardly see any skyscraper over 30 storeys high outside of London, and in London you can only see 30 storey buildings in the Canaray Wharf area and a couple in the City of London.. I am talking about THE CITY.. the greatest financial center on this planet outside of Wall Street.

    Yet, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand have bigger and more high tech industrial landscapes than Malaysia. It is the same story with Japan and South Korea. Try to find the world’s tallest buildings in Tokyo or Seoul. I think there are more skyscrapers in Johor Bahru than Seoul.

    These countries behave the way truly developed countries behave. If Malaysia ever wants to become a developed country, then we have to start thinking and acting like one, too.

    Think and behave to Produce, NOT to Impress.

    Tun

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENTS IN LINE WITH TWIN PEAKS COMMENTS ON THE RINGGIT’S DEPRECIATION.

    Is it by sheer coincidence that the ashes returned to Malaysia and bolstered by the Kajang Peoples’ Assembly 2019 at a time of our beloved Tun’s perceived retirement and our beloved Malaysia’s problems ?

    Are these phantom folks since 1989 now rear their ugly heads to prepare the WAY FOR THE LONG MARCH OF 50 YEARS TO PUTRAJAYA FROM 1989 ?

    It seems to me their actions confirmed that ‘ THERE IS NO SMOKE. THERE IS NO FIRE. ‘

    And these returned folks have a very good Harvard educated economist to give them the low-down on the correct timing to emerge from the SHADOWS. This they have done in response to a Central Command.

    We Malaysians will see these crypt-chauvinists returned in another form to take part in the 15th GE WITH THE AIM TO BE IN POWER IN 50 YEARS FROM 1989. Maybe they already have a qualified Malay gentleman in place.?

    See how the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 AND ITS ABANG-ADEK SINGAPORE have weaken our security and resolve to safeguard our Sovereignty and National Interest arising from their hot relationships and close proximity retreats ?

    THE BARBARIANS ARE AT THE GATES OF KL ! Our guard was let down due to self-indulgence and self-immolation eg. golf, travel, etc. etc. Dozing off from jet-leg in the Dewan Rakyat was the order of the day.

    THE BARBARIANS HAVE ARRIVED AT THE GATES OF KL. Believe it or not !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem

  100. mubarakchan Dec 4,2019 10:39 AM

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    Malaysia practised financial discipline and restraint until a bunch of illiterate leaders took-over and turned a well-administered Government 1957-2003 into a Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs into the most corrupt Government in the World. All conventional theories and practices of good governance where ignored or thrown overboard as though the Nation’s money dropped from heaven.

    And ‘CASH BECAME KING’

    First, billions of ringgits were side-tracked into non-productive projects like the NS camps to siphon off money from the Government by way of construction contracts, catering, uniforms, transport, security guards etc. This was the very first instance of deliberate waste of money and effort using Government resources.

    EVEN TODAY THERE ARE VOICES ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE DEMANDING THE RETURN OF THE NS CITING SINGAPORE AS ALWAYS. Obviously they hope for the lush easy and corrupt contracts for the NS camps.

    The uncontrolled and wanton corruption which siphoned off over RM1.5 Trillion between 2002-2018 was reported by the UN, World Bank and the IMF.

    Second, the huge and bloated Civil Service which was just as corrupt as its leaders. The latest report of the Auditor-General stated that of the over 11,000 dead rice farmers, over 3,000 are still alive and receiving subsidies from the Government since 1997 ! Or previous reports like a pencil cost RM 8 per piece.

    The billions of ringgits spent on the Civil Service is rising and recurrent. Pensions are rising too due to more Civil Servants and a longer Life span.

    Third, for sometime, thousands of graduates were educated not in the English language as well in this Cyber World Age. There is no linkage between EDUCATION AND THE REAL WORLD OF PROVIDING JOBS FOR THE EDUCATED. Now thousands of graduates are unemployed.

    Fourth, the huge deficit in sound Leadership and the elite in the country which led to large areas of enterprise untapped. Not fakes. With poor Leadership, THE ACCUMULATIVE EFFECTS OF PREVIOUS GOOD GOVERNANCE DATING FROM 1957-2003 WERE NOT BUILT UPON BUT WERE DESTROYED BY THE WANTON CORRUPTION AND RAPE OF THE FINANCIAL ASSETS BELONGING TO THE NATION. We require thousands of real Malay elite to do the job. Not lip-service.

    Fifth, NO PROPER PROJECTS WERE FORTHCOMING WITHOUT CORRUPTION FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE RAKYAT BETWEEN 2004-2018. No real Policies of note to expand the Nation’s wherewithal which were accumulated through the Ages.

    With our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, his projects were all conceptualised soundly by him. But where his project failed, it was because all his closest aides WERE CORRUPT AND LET HIM DOWN. The Proton would have been a resounding success if the closest aides DID NOT CHEAT ON THE WHEEL RIMS, RADIOS, VISORS, WASTE, ETC. Obviously, these crooked closest aides knew nothing about manufacturing because they were all crooks who only knew how to steal.

    There was one closest aide who made so much corrupt money, he could collect Stradivarius violins at US$ 5 Million a piece which he does not lend to the KL Philharmonic but only to Singapore and Shanghai. He began life carrying the brief case for our distinguished Tan Sri Basir Ismail in a little factory in JB only 8 years before this !

    ALL THESE SPENDING IN BILLIONS OF RINGGITS HAS TO BREAK SOMETIME. THE FIRST WOULD BE THE DETERIORATION OF OUR RINGGIT UNTIL INFLATION IS OUT OF CONTROL.

    The straw which will break the camel’s back will be a sudden eruption of World financial crisis which has been on-going since October 2008 AND SINGAPORE HAD BEEN STRUGGLING WITH ITS GDP SINCE 2002

    YET THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT LEADERSHIP 2004-2018 DID NOT NOTICE THESE TWO SIGNIFICANT FACTORS WHICH ARE STILL WITH US TODAY. Yes ! Still with us today !

    If the corrupt and illiterate BN Leadership was aware of the events in the World and Singapore, WOULD THEY SPEND ON THE TRX, THE 100 STOREY PNB BUILDING, THE HSR, THE ECRL, THE KL MRT WHICH NO ONE USES. After spending the trillions of ringgits with billion of ringgits siphoned overseas, THERE IS NO MONEY LEFT FIRST FOR THE CIVIL SERVICE AND THEN THE REST OF THE COUNTRY.

    Hence, for years, I presented the true state of economic affairs around the World in this distinguished Blog so all understand our own environment which is our beloved Malaysia.

    THE HUGE DAMAGE TO THE NATION BY THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE AND GLCs/SOEs IS UNIQUE IN THIS WORLD WHICH BRAZIL, ARGENTINA OR VENEZUELA CANNOT MATCH. It was sheer daylight robbery by the democratically elected Leaders who WERE ALREADY VERY RICH AND POWERFUL.

    Not only that, most Malaysians do not understand that ALL OUR WEALTH, THE RICH AND THE POOR, HAS BEEN DIMINISHED BY 30%-40% DUE TO INFLATION, DEPRECIATION OF THE RINGGIT, REDUCTION IN LAND VALUES, SIPHONING OF STOLEN MONEY OVERSEAS – RM 1.5 TRILLION FROM 2002-2018, BURSA WEAKENS AND MORE.

    Yes ! AND MORE !

    I have seen how my rich friend the son of the Ambassador from Venezuela to the Court of St. James, London in 1951 became a pauper in 2019.

    All the rich folks with huge bank deposits overseas, WILL ONE DAY BE RICH MALAYSIAN EXILES FLOATING AROUND NEW YORK. LONDON OR PARIS. Their descendants will do the same as playboys or girls as long as the money last.

    IS IT WORTHWHILE TO STEAL THE MONEY BELONGING TO THE RAKYAT AND SUFFER FOR IT LATER ESPECIALLY ONE’S DESCENDANTS ?

    Man proposes. God disposes.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem The problem begins when any country is led by illiterate, ignorant and dishonest Leaderships with no mind-sets which you always have pointed out as of the most importance. Acheh !

  101. twinpeaks Dec 2,2019 7:11 PM

    Let’s add a little bit more to the Spending topic. To my mind, there are two types of Spending. One is Marketing related, and the other is Production related.

    It seems that from the past until the present, Malaysia is firmly transfixed by Marketing related Spending, by both governments and corporations alike. They spend to impress. Well, you know what happen.. when you spend to impress a girl.. yes, you lose your pocket money.

    On the other hand, the Koreans spend not to impress. But they spend their limited resources financial and human, on Production. It is the same thing that happened more than a hundred years ago in Europe, especially Great Britain. There was a huge migration from the rural areas to the new industrial cities throughout Great Britain. Small farms were forcibly if not legally turned into mechanized farming led by giant food corporations, that sell the imported canned foods we buy at the local grocery stores.

    That is how South Korea today have world-class hi-tech corporations. They basically put their focus on Production rather than Marketing.

  102. twinpeaks Dec 2,2019 6:38 PM

    There is a tendency for a government to spend more than it should in order to make them still look relevant. This is especially so in the run-up periods to general elections. We have had plenty of these in the past, resulting in fiscal imbalances. Spending more than what we actually have, counting on future income, and therefore taking on more debts. So, we already have a mountain of debt, as it is, based on past fiscal practices.

    The Ringgit weakness is not coincidental. When the financial world sense that the country has a habit of spending more than it actually has, in the tradition of supply side economics of John Maynard Keynes, they have a predictable way of letting that country know. That is, through a market devaluation of its currency. So, we have fallen (via-a-vis the USD) from RM2.50 to RM3.80, then strengthened back to RM3.00, and now at its worst level so far at RM4.20.

    Two things result from this weakening of the Ringgit. Inflation and more devaluation. Inflation.. because we import a lot of our the things that we consume, and this is the simple cause of the high cost of living today. Further devaluation pressure.. because interest payments and as well as principals of the country’s existing debts will automatically go up. Thus, a further possibility of default risk, and hence leading to further outflow of capital to safer currencies, further devaluing the Ringgit as a consequence.

    How do you put a stop to this trend. Well, we cannot insulate ourselves with capital control. Doing so will only lead to more loss of confidence in the handling of financial crises.

    The first thing, to my mind, that the government must do, is to instill confidence in the Ringgit purchasing power on daily household goods and services. The people must have confidence that their purchasing power still holds from one day to the next. How do you do that? Well, that’s for the cabinet ministers to figure out, isn’t it.

    Then the second thing is, the government must selectively choose industries that can be upgraded through technology, in order to produce higher quality products, and thus automatically increase the productivity per capita of each individual worker in those selected industries. If you fail to do this, time will catch up on you, where you have to raise workers’ salaries while their output are still stuck in the old lower quality products. Sooner or later, companies will be forced to close down one by one, and the government will then have to deal with a higher unemployment prospect among its forever increasing youth population.

    Malaysia will end up like Argentina and Venezuela eventually, if the government does not change they way they do things. And I am Not joking.

    A gem of a comment you made recently, thus

    1. ” MUSLIMS MUST SHOW NOBLE TRAITS. DR M. ”

    You have hit the point home on the Beauty of Islam as a religion in just 5 words. In time, these golden words will Unite and Exhort all Malaysians as one. This may not be achieved in a Life-time but surely it would in time.

    2. ” CHINESE INVESTMENTS IN MALAYSIA HALVES. US INFLOW SOARS. ”

    As a neutral country in World Affairs, any foreign investment reaching our shores is good money. Once the New and Incorruptible Government gets its act together in time, the sky is the limit when the World at large finally discovers and recognises our beloved Malaysia and its peoples are one of the 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia.

    And your ideas on Korean and Japanese investments in Malaysia. Your emphasis on the role China can play in our mega infrastructure development. Also, your idea of Indian fighter jets and more trade with Pakistan and Turkey to come.

    The icing on the cake must be the production of halal food products for the Muslim World by Malaysia as suggested by Tun Dr Daim together with a build up of the tourist trade to 30 million by 2020.

    TO CROWN ALL THESE, THE FANTASTIC HUB DEVELOPMENT OF PENANG, KEDAH AND ITS KULIM AIRPORT COMPLEX WHICH FALL OUT WILL BENEFIT PERLIS, PERAK, KELANTAN, TRENGGANU AND PAHANG.

    And much more to come of sensible, practical, doable, transparent and most important projects which all are beneficial to the Rakyat at all levels.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. As you always understood “IDEAS MAKE MONEY” ! Definitely not MONEY MAKES MONEY OR CASH IS KING !

  104. mubarakchan Nov 30,2019 7:31 PM

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    Where have you been ? You definitely did not see the Queen, Twin Peaks !

    Your political ideas fit mine to a T because I have always been a Constitutionalist and never a Communalist since 1954. I believe in meritocracy for myself and I do not impose this on other.

    There is no a single iota of political philosophy practised in our beloved Malaysia since 1957. As you rightly said it is rice-bowl politics – I like you, you like me that sort of thing politics.

    The chaps do not even know that the Singapore Political System is Lee Kuan Yew crated Anti-Cambridge Godless Neo-communist political and socio-economic bolstered by the apparatchiks and the West. Since the early 1970s, the Western media called this ‘authoritarian capitalism’ or ‘benign authoritarian’ or ‘rich Cuba without the havanas but the bananas.’

    And we lapped the whole fakery up like cats when the Singaporeans told us that we are ABANG-ADEKS ! And as a result what did Singapore took from us for free – ALL THAT THEY DESIRED.

    Fortunately, MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES. Singapore is up a greasy slippery pole of no return which could only be saved by confederating with the United Kingdom.

    Lee Kuan Yew missed the second biggest bonanza of his life by not investing into 4,000 tons of GOLD at US$ 300 per ounce before 2000 with the huge profits from the Cold War Trades.

    The difficulty today, TWIN PEAKS, is the dire lack of Malay elite, real ones not fakes. I could only identify 3 real ones being Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin and Dato Seri Sharil Redza Ridzuan of Christ’s College, Cambridge, and two neophytea Azmin and SADDIQ. These are elite with solid IQ and real political motives. The rest only know how to quarrel like in a wet market.

    This is also our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s problem today when he is always surrounded by beaming faces willing to please. But as soon as his back is turned, the whole scenario becomes an entirely different story. Elite do not behave like this.

    This is also the problem with our beloved Malaysia’s rice-bowl politics.

    Now this danger is forever lurking as long as one vestige of the corrupt GLCs/SOEs is present. These will return in a jiffy with a vengeance to destroy our hopes of a better Malaysia tomorrow. Only 4 countries have them eg. authoritarian Russia, China, Singapore and democratic Malaysia. 100 Chinese are on the run from China.

    With the expose’ of 1MDB, there are not many vestal virgins around in Malaysia these days unlike before October 2003. This sort of negativity was only privy to a few previously but it is now common knowledge to the millions of citizens – even my wife talked about it every day to her members waiting outside the SMK.

    This was exactly how Lee Kuan Yew unwittingly turn his flock into a kiasu tribe of Singaporeans through his 2 Child Family Policy of 1972. This Policy taught all the young not to marry for fear a quickie divorce forced 50% of his/her wealth to the other partner.

    Hence, the problem of Malaysia to-day is unique in the fact that PRIME MINISTERS ARE BORN NOT MADE !

    Our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in 2002 might have thought anyone could take a bite of the cherry. Good man !

    Subsequent events with the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs showed that there’s many a slip ‘twixt cup and lips’ with the thought of biting the cherry completely forgotten !

    With the evidence, our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is the only person in the World who decides when to hand over the Baton of Power to DSAI.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    Yes.. Sabah politics is closer to the practice of rice bowl politics, being a junior partner in the federation. Sarawak does not think like Sabah. They are a proud state, a lot like Kelantan.

    I may be jumping the gun here, but to my mind, it would be best for the country if Tun’s politician son Datuk Seri Mukhriz leads a new BN coalition into the next general elections. 2023 is not very far from now.

    If so, not only BN would have a new image, but the country is assured of an experienced leadership for several decades to come. It is good for the economy.

    Tun

    FOR TWIN PEAKS.

    Your discourse on the future of the PH is not only interesting but also dot on. I know the Sabahans better than the Sarawkians. The nicest Hakkas are to be found in Sabah. I have yet to find a Sabahan who can say “No” ! You are right of course on the fact that Sabah and Sarawak hold the key to Power in Malaysia at the next 15th GE. Not only that, without them there will be no Malaysia.

    The political shambles which now exist on the Peninsula caused by ‘Cash is King’ may have dealt a fatal blow to Malaysian Politics without the right sort of Leadership. Will the next regime and the regime after the next be led by Mickey Mice ? Have the Rakyat of Malaysia lost the cat which catches mice ?

    I have mentioned many times that the Malay elite committed self-indulgence and self-immolation for 3 generations 1963-2018 until there are only 3 left eg. our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin and Dato Sri Sharil Redza Ridzwan and neophytes, Azmin and SAADIQ. Malaysia needs Malay elite by the thousands because the Constitution says so. Therefore, non-Malay elite cannot move forward without the Malay elite.

    Through your deliberations, at the next 15th GE Sabah and Sarawak hold the key.

    But the third most important factor is the ill-treatment by the fake BN Minister of Law PMO which misled the 300,000 young Malay bankrupts by telling them that the Bankruptcy Law 1967 was amended. This Act was not amended but was attached with amendments so that the Bankruptcy Act 2017 began in October with NO BANKRUPTS and the over 600,000 bankrupts remained incarcerated in the old Bankruptcy Act 1967.

    This is injustice which will be exploited by the Opposition BN in good time.

    A letter to the Star alleged that the Minister was influenced by financial interests like share-brokers to punish the bankrupts in the Victorian manner.

    The Bankruptcy Act is one of the most up-to-date in Singapore, Hong Kong, Britain and Australia where bankrupts are given a second chance unlike the Malaysian Bankruptcy Act 2017 which punishes them with no rehabilitation.

    There are over 2 Million urbanised bankrupts and their relatives in the towns of Malaysia. These voters will surely vote against the PH which Minister of Law from Sabah stood-up in the Dewan Rakyat recently and said the bankrupts are well looked after.

    Why disinterested personalities were always put into this Minister of Law job in succession, I do not understand. ? All 4 of them who did nothing whilst in the PMO except to look pretty !. Up-dated Laws are the most important element in the administration of a country.

    Vide. The Star. Letter to the Editor 25 June 2018. He alleged the Minister was under the influence of financial interests.

    Therefore, the over 2,000,000 bankrupts and their relatives in the towns will be instigated by the BN to vote against the PH amongst other disgruntled voters for not up-dating and revise the Bankruptcy Act 1967 like in Singapore, Hong Kong, Britain and Australia.

    In the Reform Marriage Act 1982, all marriages prior to 1982 were recognised. But the Bankruptcy Act 2017 left the over 600,000 bankrupts incarcerated in the old Act as a form of punishment , 19th Century style. This is a Travesty of Justice which should not be tolerated.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Sabah, Sarawak and the 2 Million bankrupts and their relatives hold the key to which party will win the 15th GE ! Forewarned is forearmed !

    How many Malaysians have noted that the two most original and creative minds in the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great had their dedicated works put side by side on Page 13 of The Star today, 29 November 2019 ?

    1. ” RM20MIL FOR FLYING CAR PROJECT. PAC : GOVT GAVE FUNDING DESPITE IT BEING TOUTED AS A PRIVATE EFFORT. ”

    The difference between men and boys is the quality of their toys. This toy is purported to be powered by Hitachi fans not Rolls-Royce engines.

    2. ” YEOH : NEED DATA ON PERIOD POVERTY, ”

    All the money gone to build the toy plane. No money to do research on sanitary pads for teenagers.

    This YB is now down to the sanitary pads of teenagers for want of ideas. She is famed for the following with no follow-up action or result.

    i) Nursery for journalists in the Dewan Rakyat. Not yet opened by the PM.

    ii) Anti-Bottom Pinching Bill. Many sore male and female bottoms became sore with no legal protection since YB made this astonishing discovery which has been around since the Stone Age.

    iii) Stop building condos to stop traffic congestion. Property developers do not build cemeteries.

    iv) Fake a fake fight with your Boss the Minister for Wilayah Persekutuan in quiet times.

    v) 100,000 teenage pregnancies were discovered by this YB. I did 100 D & C within 3 months in 1961 – just for her up-date.

    vi) Set a Unit to care for the elderly and children in the Ministry which cared for the elderly and children since 1957.

    vii) Today, YB has just discovered that the lack of sanitary pads was the cause of truant or malingering. A Ph.D thesis should be forthcoming.

    viii) YB said that DBKL’s most senior lawyer is meaningless.

    ix) What does she think about RM20 Million for a toy plane powered by Hitachi fans made in Malaysia ?

    Until now, I always thought clowns only exist in the circus, not the Dewan Rakyat.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. A laugh a day keeps the doctor away !

  108. twinpeaks Nov 29,2019 4:41 PM

    Talking about the next General Elections, I would like spend a few minutes on the matter of Bersatu’s entry into Sabah and Sarawak.

    Like Tun, I was with UMNO until the last General Elections in 2018. Indeed, I supported UMNO and BN in 2018. I only supported Bersatu when 99% of Sabah UMNO politicians decided that it was best that they joined Bersatu. Hence, Bersatu entered Sabah after GE2018. In other words, we jumped ships, from BN to PH. We are frogs, I am not ashamed to say that.

    Here is the thing, though. Sarawak is different from Sabah, and I am not so sure Bersatu will fare well in the Land of the Hornbills. For one thing, no Peninsula-based political party has succeeded in Sarawak politics. And there is no reason to expect this will change anytime soon. It really doesn’t matter how federal leaders say it to the Sarawak people. They just won’t do it. They won’t support any party except a home-grown Sarawak political party.

    Sabah is different. We are not Sabah People. We are not Orang Sabah. We are People from Sabah, or Orang dari Sabah. That’s a distinction between the two terms.

    Sabah politicians are very individualistic. It is they way they operate. My father, and his father, and his father in their lifetimes served no less than eight political parties or regimes. First it was the British, then it was the Sabah Alliance, then USNO, then Berjaya, then PBS, then UPKO, then UMNO, and finally Bersatu today. Tomorrow, I wouldn’t know. Other politicians in Sabah do the same, too. It is for the same reason why politicians do it. Responsible politicians, that is. In politics, the people must come before principle or ideology. It is what they expect from you. To look after their interests while you hold the position of power. Hence, frog politics is always associated with Sabah. It is the way Sabah politicians operate. It has always been like this, and always will in future.

    But in Sarawak, it is different. Sarawak has an established identity. The Sarawak identity. Sabah does not have one. So we don’t mind joining any political party, including Peninsula-based parties, if it serves the long-term interest of the people.

    Hence, I doubt that Sarawak people will vote the same way as in Sabah. Not in the past, and in all probability, not ever.

    Tun

    Not many exciting or eye-catching headlines these days. This may be due to the reason that the Rakyat are tired of the repetitive reports of libel and slander thrown at each other by Malaysia’s kind of politicians. But a harder look by me produced the following thus,

    1. ” KHAZANAH SELLS STAKE WORTH RM 5.66 BILLION INCLUDING ALIBABA. ”

    As you rightly pointed out a long time ago that the Khazanah’s original purpose was different from the diverse portfolio now held by Khazanah. We also remember that Khazanah is not a Sovereign fund as such. It borrowed money to invest during the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs Regime.

    A true Sovereign Fund was established by Canada in 1972 which was an investment tool derived from earnings arising out of the consumption of its vast natural resources of timber, oil and mineral wealth. This idea was followed by Norway to conserve her oil and timber resources. Kuwait was the last true Sovereign Fund to conserve the sale of her oil resources. All the rest of the so-called Sovereign Funds are fakes which were played up by the Western media up to the collapse of equity markets in October 2008 during which Singapore officially lost US$ 108 Billions ! Temasek is alleged to have a bond issue recently.

    Malaysia’s Khazanah was established as a fund to safeguard Malay interests in the early 1990s. But under the corrupt BN Government 2004-2018, it was called a Sovereign Fund to delude the Rakyat and opened its gates to unfettered corruption activities.

    It is best for Khazanah to sell all the GLCs except for TNB, Telekon and PLUS, and return to its original roots. A truly Democratic Government has no business to be in business making money for the Rakyat. A Government should be staffed full of Civil Servants and not Civil Servants turned crooked entrepreneurs like in Malaysia who practised off-budget spending as a uncontrollable art form. This crazy idea should be eliminated once and for all.

    Or else the GLCs will return one fine day and kill our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat with vengeance as surely as the Sun rises !

    2. ” RINGGIT PRESSURED BY PERSISTENT SELLING ON BURSA ”

    The usual trend as established by Singapore investors from decades ago. The selling could only come from Singapore. Investors further afield do not even know where is our beloved Malaysia. Singaporean or foreign investors will return when they perceive that the right ingredients for them to make money out of Malaysia again. How many Malaysians know that most of the Singapore multi-billionaires made their money in Malaysia and not Singapore or Indonesia or Thailand etc. ? They only sleep there.

    3. ” MINISTER’S EXPLANATION ON DBKL’s FREE LEGAL AID MAKES NO SENSE.”

    The above caption came from a serial publicity seeking andvery junior deputy minister in a 4th Tier Ministry who has accumulated the following serial announcements off the cuff without the approval of the Minister in charge of her Ministry since 9 May 2018 with no action., thus

    1. ” The Anti-Bottom Pinching Bill ”

    2. ” A nursery to be established in the Dewan Rakyat. ” No sign of the opening ceremony by the PM to this day.

    3. ” Establish a Unit to look after the welfare of women and children in the Ministry which had looked after the same since its inception in 1957. ”

    4. ” Create a fake battle with the Dato Bandar KL for publicity sake.”

    5. ” Stop building condos to reduce traffic congestion. ” Property developers do not build cemeteries where there are no traffic congestion.

    6. ” Hijack the Paris Women Protest against Abuse and call it her own and amend Malaysia’s very own Anti-Women Abuse Act 2015. ”

    7. ” The latest gobbledygook is a lawyer for DBKL makes no sense. ”

    8. ” The very junior deputy minister discovered that our beloved Malaysia had 100,000 pregnant teenagers annually. To up-date her, I did 100 D & Cs in 3 months in 1961 !

    This person should be in the Ministry of Information in charge of Bluffology a’la Singapore. All hot air and no action.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. I wonder what her colleagues think of her ?

    Tun

    How many Malaysians noted the powerful message in a few words you put across to the World and our Malaysians yesterday in Busan, South Korea ?

    ” MALAYSIA AIMS TO SOAR HIGH. ”

    Your outstanding speech embodied your Vision and the Creation of Ideas and Wealth through new and uncharted enterprises for our beloved Malaysia.

    As a bystander, I certainly got a thrill from your dynamic and exhortative words which no Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government Leader ever made 2004-2018. These corrupt Leaders without shame talked about ‘CASH IS KING’ or encourage the young to play GOLF ! Nothing which would provide the Rakyat with jobs or wealth. In the end, “CASH IS KING” brought their downfall.

    For 14 years, nothing for the Rakyat only a multi-billion ringgit MRT which no one uses.

    Your Visionary and Innovative Speech in Busan is made of the stuff which created Leaders who lead in front and not those creepy-crawlies who fight from the back.

    Your ideas on avionics and aeronautics fit our beloved Malaysia to a T especially in conjunction with the Kulim International Airport the most important socio-economic hub soon to come.

    South Korea is another country which our beloved Malaysia will do well to be friends with. Many South Koreans are already in Malaysia earning a living.

    Tun, your Vision, Brilliance and Wisdom has nailed another important pathway ahead for the Rakyat in the years to come.

    A clear example of how a distinguished Leader leads a country and her peoples. The right guidance at the right moment at the right place and time. This is how our beloved Malaysia should be governed.

    LEADERS OF COUNTRIES SHOULD NEVER ENCOURAGE THE CITIZENS TO BE GREEDY OR IMMORAL WITH HOI-POLLOI WORDS LIKE ‘ CASH IS KING ‘. WORDS WHICH ARE UNBEFITTING TO COME FROM A TOP LEADER OF ANY COUNTRY.

    I remember very well in the early 1980s in Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew sent round a rich man’s son to the schools to LECTURE TO THE YOUNG STUDENTS THAT IT PAYS TO BE GREEDY. What one calls from ‘the sublime to the ridiculous’. The damage done to the young minds is incalculable which would have manifested in many negative forms to the detriment of any society at large in later years. But that was a fact produced by a Leader who should have known better, much better. Believe it or not !

    Your speech in Busan, South Korea should be considered one of your finest in the interest of our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. I do not read many fine speeches these days in our beloved Malaysia.

    Yes, equally I do not know much of the shenanigans behind the business world in Southeast Asia. Corruption is almost a word invented in this region, for sure. But still, the governments and businesses in this region cannot run away from the basics of building a proper economy, no matter how many decades of experience they have had.

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    I do not know anything behind the façade of Thai Governments and their Policies. But I do know that business for a foreigner is complex in a country under the influenced of oligarchs operating from Bangkok vis-a-vis the countryside – a country in which the King has a special position over all in the Kingdom.

    There used to be at least 18 oligarch families in control of business in Thailand. But in recent times, due to advances in the new economy, many more have climbed onto the bandwagon.

    The Philippines has a similar oligarchic structure which prevents the formation of big business entities owned by foreigners.

    Both Thailand and The Philippines with their oligarchic structures produce policies peculiar to themselves as you have mentioned, TWIN PEAKS.

    In these countries, the standard of living between the rich and the poor is like Heaven and Earth. The poverty rate is high. No one cares.

    It is the phantom hands which shaped the policies of the Government in both countries. These phantoms provide the essential lubricant to oil the wheels of the political parties in Power. Hence, anyone in Power in Thailand must ban the likes of Thaksin from its shores to keep political costs low.

    As in all the World, TWIN PEAKS, politics and Power are closely entwined with Money (oligarchs) like Gemini twins. You cannot ignore one but not the other.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. No oligarchs for our beloved Malaysia.

    Kudos to the genius who thought up the deal which furnished the following headline, thus

    ” Malaysia considers purchase of Indian fighter jets. ”

    India needs food. Malaysia needs arms. Therefore the twain will meet.

    India is quite advanced in military hard-ware and it is good that Malaysia taps onto this source for our defence. The fall-out from this deal in transparency and in the National Interest is tremendous if full advantage is taken to place the whole project in the Kulim International Airport with a military base and runway. Let Butterworth Sir Base be turned into the 2nd New George Town.

    Lest we forget. Since India’s Independence in 1947, she did not screw up her English Language for her peoples. In fact the bulwark of India’s recent modern advancement was based on her 350 million English speaking Indians.

    India has an Education Silicon Valley Complex in the Dehra Dun-Mussoorie Region at the foothills of the high Himalayas. Schools and colleges of World standards have been established since the 19th Century. There is a famous military academy which our Tun Hussein Onn attended. Elite schools like the Doon School to train the elite. Others like India’s famed Institute of Forest Research or a Training Institute for Civil Servants are all located in this Region.

    It pays to consider setting up a Malaysian owned and run English College to teach English to Malaysians in Dehra Dun like Kirby College in the 1950s. 6 or 12 months courses may be offered. Cost should be cheap and rewarding. Every one speaks English in India.

    This should be a joint corporate and non-profit effort by the likes of Sime Darby, banks, GLCs, plantation and property companies etc in the National Interest.

    This English College just for the English Language should have been established years ago if time had not been spent on golf, travel and fun etc by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    India is one great country our beloved Malaysia should work closely with for mutual benefits. We have a lot in common with India especially with the coming of Britain after Brexit. The future is the limit.

    Strangely, Singapore found out to its cost that India nearly overwhelmed her. In Malaysia’s case, we go to India for benefits with the backing of the private corporates. No Government funds are involved but only the cursory monitoring of the right English courses in the English Language.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Let the mind-sets start working. Acheh !

  114. twinpeaks Nov 25,2019 1:35 PM

    I almost forgot.. the thing about productivity.

    The reason why Thailand is suffering in its exports is simply because its manufacturers had done little to improve the things that they were and are selling. The years of weak Baht have made them complacent, so they kept on producing and exporting the same low quality stuff that they made in 1997. In other words, they are selling their products at very thin profit margin, to the world market. They cannot reduce their prices, otherwise they will go bust. Hence, when the Thai Baht strengthens today, their export prices increase, as they cannot absorb any loss. Their customers have to absorb the increased prices. Thus their exports fell.

    In contrast, for example, a German product. BMW or Audi can absorb any loss due to stronger EURO in the market, as their profit margin is comparatively big due to the high quality of their products. This is the simple reason why some countries are more developed than others. Their currencies are more stable and not exposed to speculators.

    We sure have a lot to learn, yet.

  115. twinpeaks Nov 25,2019 12:59 PM

    I will take a few minutes to explain what is going on in Thailand and elsewhere. It is absolutely spot on that there are no two economists who think alike, though a few basics would be agreed upon. It is based on individual interpretation of the same given evidence.

    But here is my interpretation based on my own study, my own tracking of various economies around the world, in historical as well present contexts. And to put it simply in layman’s language..

    Imagine if a country produces a crate of a certain product, say.. flat-screen TVs. Here is the thing called a supply and demand graph of price (vertical) and quantity (horizontal) represented by two slanting lines going in opposite directions. If we take the line that slants upward from left to right, that is called the supply curve. The opposite line that slants down from left to right, that is the demand curve.

    The demand curve shows an inverse relationship between price and quantity of demand, such that if price goes down, quantity goes up. And vice versa, if price goes up, quantity goes down. The supply curve shows a direct relationship between price and quantity, in contrast.

    If the crate of TVs are exported to the rest of the world and assuming all other things remain constant, then its demand will directly correlate with its price. And this will tell us if the TV has been priced correctly according to its quality. For instance, if the TV is of average quality, then it cannot be sold more than what it can fetch in the global market. If the TV is of high quality, then it has plenty of room price-wise to play with in the market. If the TV is of low quality, then is has very little choice but to sell at a narrow price range.

    Thailand’s recovery post 1997 financial crisis was due to the fallen Baht, which made its exports appeared cheaper in global market. So it sold its imaginary crate of TVs in huge quantities to the world. In contrast, its imports became a lot more expensive to the Thai people, hence quantities fell. This resulted over time, in increasing trade surpluses year upon year. Thailand paid off its foreign debts, its foreign reserve is bloated from the years of trade surpluses. All went well until, the money world being fluid, Thailand attracts all the global investment and pension managers looking for a safe country to park their excess funds. Everyone went to Thailand.

    The supply and demand of the Thai Baht shows that over time, the demand curve shifts rightward, while the supply curve remains static. This pushes the Thai Baht upwards. There is no other way to avoid this in the money world.

    While the Baht strengthens against other major currencies, its crate of TVs became vulnerable. As Thailand-made TVs are of low quality, its export is very sensitive to price changes. The stronger Baht makes its exports price appear more expensive. This quickly affects the quantity of TVs Thailand can export. In this case, exports fell in quantity. And in absolute terms, exports value thus fell.

    When exports figures fell, it means that the Baht is over-valued, by the extent from the point when maximum price has been reached before exports fell. Thailand has over-reached this point and continues to do so for as long as the Baht appreciates further in coming days, weeks and months.

    I cannot predict when the point of no return is, but the money market being very fluid and volatile, basically.. it is anytime from now.

  116. mubarakchan Nov 24,2019 9:59 PM

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    On your comment predicting the forthcoming financial catastrophe to come for the South East Asian countries, I agree with you on Thailand. But the forthcoming financial scenarios affecting Malaysia and Singapore will be different. Vietnam may mimic Thailand which will be as far as the expected event will go.

    In the years before 1967, there were excessive borrowings of foreign currencies by the countries most affected by the crisis. I could see the Thais were borrowing with absolute abandon as though there would be no tomorrow. They paid the price of their insouciance eventually. And the IMF Chief, Camdessus appeared in Indonesia with arms akimbo behind the President. Years before this 1967 blow-up, the Western media was busily buttering up the participants like Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea as the 4 Tigers.

    But in the present maelstrom so created by the US-China Trade War, and with the export trade in most ASEAN countries down including Thailand even with low BLRs, it seems we must expect a new type of financial crisis which we have never experienced before which will be low export volume with low liquidity and jobs creation affecting the GDP.

    It must also be remembered that Singapore, a good harbinger of things to come, could not breach her GDP more than 3% from 2002-2019 – 17 years. Yet Singapore has technically avoided recession.

    In the World media which specializes in reading tea-leaves. Not long ago, it was expected to be a recession year, 2020. Just a few days ago, there was news that there will be no recession next year in the World. Apparently, a key country to watch is Germany after China.

    Economists are people who looked at the past to predict the future. No two economists think alike. In this event, what to do but to await the head-winds accompanied by the rising storm to come and practise thrift.

    Fortunately, our beloved Malaysia is now headed by a sensible group of of Leaders who will not sell their grandmothers down river unlike the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

  117. twinpeaks Nov 24,2019 7:58 PM

    An important warning sign of an impending currency crisis is FAST shaping up in Southeast Asia. And I am not scare-mongering. Remember Thailand 1997? Well, it is happening all over again, only this time it is about to explode Big(ger) Time.

    Thailand’s open economy has enjoyed tremendous success since its fall in the Asian Financial Crisis on the late-1990s. Evidently, the Thai government has vowed not to repeat the same mistakes again. Or have they? Really?

    Well, let’s see. Thailand generated so much exports since the financial crisis, rising from the ashes like a phoenix, so to speak. I have nothing against Thailand. I am glad we thrashed them in football last week (he..he..). They could not reply back.

    Anyway, here’s the thing. Thailand have recovered so well from the financial crisis that it was one of the best performing export nations in the entire planet. Except that they forgot to do one critical thing. They forgot to raise their PRODUCTIVITY.

    This is typical Asian business. Even in Malaysia. And especially that humongous Communist middle kingdom called China. We like to pride ourselves as export performers of the planet.. but doing the same thing over and over again, until we grow bloated like a balloon about to burst. We actually never and do not ever want to try new things. That’s when a business gets into trouble. It grows too big doing the same thing over and over again until it realizes that it has grown too fat, and too late to save itself. That is Thailand for you. I tell you this. If any reader in this blog has any bank account in Thailand or hold any stocks in Thai-based corporations, I would advise you to sell your Baht and Thai stocks NOW, to save yourself from certain self-destruct.

    The Thai Baht has risen meteorically to the moon, climbing nearly 8% this year, and reached an all-time high against the US Dollar since mid-2013. And the Thai Central Bank is not doing anything about it, not that I am surprised if they don’t. They are probably too stupid to do anything well in that country.

    Let me see.. On the eve of the Asian Financial Crisis 1997 that originated in THAILAND, the Thai Baht was targeted by Wall Street money men as ripe for attack. It was grossly over-valued relative to what Thailand was producing. See… the Thai government never understood this, and it looks like they still haven’t learnt any lesson. That is called STUPIDITY of the first rate.

    IMF had warned Thailand in 1997 that its currency was 20% over what it should be, but they didn’t understand what it meant. People like George Soros did. So the Thai did what Thais normally do. And the rest was finance history.

    Now the IMF is again warning Thailand in 2019 that its currency is already 15% over what it should be. The Thai government is too thick to understand what this meant, so it looks like they are doing what Thais normally do.. Nothing. Despite the obvious warning signs like consecutive falling exports figures.

    So, get out of Thailand while you still can. Our government may want to brace Malaysia for the coming collapse, too. That’s what I would do if I was the Finance Minister or Bank Negara Governor.

    We need all the Sabahan elite to show us the Way. No problem.

    Your sense of Justice, Fair Play and Knowledge of the World at large within our Malaysian Style Democracy’s context is a big plus factor to our Federal Government Leadership especially with your educational background not attained by many ! We need sound and qualified candidates like you and not CLOWNS who perform not in the circus but in the Dewan Rakyat !

    I agree with you. I am all for BREXIT. I was aghast when Britain joined the EU. I thought it would not last in view of the baggage of history which Britain had with the EU. The Wars, the battles of centuries ago. Indeed the BREXIT happened, But better late than never.

    Britain was on the Way to be enslaved by the EU.

    Exactly what Lee Kuan Yew intended with his creation the TPPA/CPTPP to enslave our beloved Malaysia forever and kill Malaysia/ the Malays/SMEs. The stupid Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs signed before Ratification.

    Our beloved Malaysia and Singapore should come up tops with Britain in terms of trade etc after BREXIT. It is to our mutual good.

    Britain and ASEAN should have mutual FREE TRADE arrangements. EU is too colonial minded with its Francophone African links and calculative to benefit ASEAN much.

    Singapore should confederate with Britain on equal terms if its Leadership is not bland and uninspiring.

    But we should all see a fantastic era opening up before us with Britain which has returned to DADDY. No more. No less.

    In 1972, Enoch Powell foresaw all the negativities of an EU marriage. And now what a messy divorce at Britain’s expense.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. In you we all TRUST. You know BEST ! Acheh !

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    I could not agree more with your suggestion to have an endorsement via a general election by the Malaysian voters on the next Prime Minister suitability to be in that post.

    But to the outsider there seems to be a trust deficit in this game of musical chairs at the top Leadership. You have strong support in the fact that 2 successive Prime Ministers failed. It was alleged one was only a secretary in Tun Abdul Razak’s NOC 1970 once upon a time.

    Whichever way we toss the dice, our beloved Malaysia has come to a crucial cross-road of no return depending on the honesty and integrity of the next Prime Minister.

    If he or she can just steer back the derailed beloved Malaysia back to its old self of achieving objectives through normality, we the Rakyat should be more than satisfied. Things like security, normal job opportunities, low inflation, good wages, affordable housing, and an education with as little radical changes as possible.

    With the Harapan, in the first 100 days, we had nurseries in the Dewan Rakyat, flying cars, all s0rts of ideas unrelated to education, etc. The latest being the Women March in Paris was hijacked by a serial publicity seeker of a Deputy Minister on women’s abuse. Malaysia is already well-known for plagiarism. We do not need more of the same.

    TWIN PEAKS I fully concur with your misgivings on the next Prime Minister. However, our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad knows best when to pass the Baton of Power to DSAI. He knows. You know. I know.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

  120. twinpeaks Nov 23,2019 6:44 PM

    Agreed.

    But I maintain my view that a general elections is the only right thing to do, before Tun’s potential successor can officially become the country’s next Prime Minister. The public must endorse it first.

    The only exception to this is IF Tun’s successor comes from the same party (PPBM) as him, as there is no drastic change in policy stance until the next polls. But if a PKR leader (whether Anwar or Azmin,.. especially Anwar) is the only candidate, then the public must give their approval first through a general elections. They shouldn’t fear the public, if they can be trusted.

  121. mubarakchan Nov 23,2019 4:58 PM

    Tun

    An instance of normality becomes immortality in the eyes of others.

    ” DOCTORS DAY OUT AS MAHATHIR TAKES WIFE OUT ON CITY DATE. ”

    How many Malaysians can behave in a normal fashion after achieving fame and fortune ?

    I cannot think of many.

    The many I knew and made good became non-humans after achieving fame and fortune from empty pockets. Most refused to be friends with me any more. But when they were poor, all were humble, meek and mild. Malays and Chinese are the same. There are no exceptions.

    For example, I was scolded or told off 13 times by ranking Tengkus and Datos but no Enciks in my Life. I smiled because I knew their background whilst they knew nothing about me. I DID NOT RUN OFF TO JOIN THE DAP FOR THESE INFANTILE SLIGHTS.

    In the 1980s, I bumped into Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah at a corner in the now demolished Ampang Park Complex at 8.30 pm. with only a bodyguard in tow.

    In the 1990s, again I bumped into the two Tuns at Sogo Store at about the same time, 8.30 pm.

    Obviously, it pays for our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to keep tabs with the Rakyat all the time in keeping with his fine and normal mind-set unlike those who spent Government money and precious time on golf courses around the World from here to Yunnan and slept it off at the Dewan Rakyat in full session !

  122. mubarakchan Nov 23,2019 4:29 PM

    Tun

    I dare say that the following headlines put all your exhortations in a nutshell for those whom you think will come after you, thus

    1. ” DON’T CHOOSE A WRONG LEADER OR YOU WILL GET AN ADOLF HITLER, ”

    Adolf Hitler assumed Power in 1933 after a period of shame for Germany, hyperinflation and huge reparations for the victors of World War I. This left a bankrupt Germany with citizens who mindlessly voted Adolf Hitler into Power. Our beloved Malaysia was not only on the point of bankruptcy under the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2003-2018 but also due for enslavement forever via the TPPA/CPTPP by tiny Singapore through the machinations of Lee Kuan Yew. Stupid.

    2. ” NOBODY CAN USE MY NAME TO PROFIT. ”

    This clearly confirmed that your name is without peer, Tun.

    3. ” MPs LOOKING TO FORGE NEW ALLIANCES. CHOOSE RIGHT LEADERS WITH RIGHT IDEAS. ”

    Malaysian frogs are a dime for two dozens !

    4. ” DR M. I WOULD CHOOSE UMNO IF REPUTATION IS NOT IN SHAMBLES ”

    Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty has a great fall. Never to be put together again. The fables and foibles of Humpty Dumpty.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

  123. mubarakchan Nov 23,2019 4:05 PM

    Tun

    FOR TWIN PEAKS.

    Of course, you are right on all counts concerning your deliberations on why our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad should stay on for a short while longer to sort of the filth in Putrajaya’s Augean Stables.

    The rot, the stink and the filth were so blatant that this rotten mess created by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs, could be cleansed by the only qualified Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

    The present fake discontent about our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has no acceptable CREDIBILITY based on the fact that THERE IS NO LEADER IN MALAYSIA TO MATCH HIM WHATEVER THIS MEANS.

    The Rakyat must never listen to the corrupted and decadent minds of the naysayers, detractors, trouble-makers, morons, Martians from Mars, crypto-Singaporeans, treasonous Civil Servants with Tan Sri-ships, fellow travellers, spies, swallows, ducks, tycoons, etc which are now available a dime a dozen.

    CORRUPTION AND THE PUNISHMENT FOR THIS AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF GOVERNMENT MUST BE DEALT WITH EFFECTIVELY. This disease had spread far and wide during the 14 years rule by the corrupt BN Government.

    The only qualified person who can effectively and efficiently deal with Corruption is the Tun himself who had the misfortune to be surrounded by the crooked and fawning closest aides who walloped money big time and abused his trust in them. 1981-2003. With this experience, our beloved Tun can only succeed in diminishing the stench of Corruption during his present tenure. He knows. You know. I know.

    A fitting closure for our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his duties as Prime Minister is proper. HE IS THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD WHO KNOWS WHEN TO PASS THE BATON OF POWER TO DSAI. I guess it’s 12 months before the next 15th GE ! Just a whisper away for you and me !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

  124. twinpeaks Nov 23,2019 12:24 PM

    I have nothing against anyone to become Prime Minister. But of course, to my mind, Tun is the only one right now who can safely and with absolute certainty lead the country to be recognized as a fully developed country by 2022 or 2023.

    If Datuk Seri Anwar becomes the new leader of the PH coalition after Tun’s retirement, and IMMEDIATELY wins the public approval in a general elections, then I congratulate him sincerely.

    But if the public does not agree that Datuk Seri Anwar should lead the country, then he should just accept this. The post of Prime Minister was never not meant for him, in that case.

  125. twinpeaks Nov 23,2019 12:07 PM

    Yes, it is precisely my point.. on the Next Prime Minister issue.

    This is such a VERY important matter that should not be taken lightly, including by Tun himself. And I am sure that Tun is healthy as ever and loves his current job more than ever. The important thing is that we enjoy what we do. But in this matter, there are also several things that must be taken into account.

    1) The entire world knows that Tun is the most revered leader in Malaysia, and to replace him mid-stream and against his will, without the Malaysian public approval will create political and social chaos of unimaginable proportion. The country’s economy will be damaged for decades, if not forever.

    2) The choice of the Next Prime Minister must ALSO be decided directly by the Malaysian public. PH was voted into government in 2018 because the public KNEW for certain that Tun would be the Prime Minister if it won. The public never envisaged that he would be replaced by another person while PH is in power. The public may not want PH to be in government if another person leads the coalition. This was evident enough since they were in opposition trying to win in three successive general elections since 2004, but they failed to convince the public that they were better than BN. It took Tun’s leadership of the opposition combined with BN’s own blunders, that finally gave the then opposition a chance in power. In other words, Tun WAS the Key Factor in PH 2018 victory.

    To my mind, if Datuk Seri Anwar truly believes in democracy, he must have the guts to put himself before the people, like Tun did in May 2018, and let the people decide if the majority wants Datuk Seri Anwar to be the Next Prime Minister. It is WRONG to do it behind closed doors. It is not a simple matter of having a bite at the cherry while PH is still in government. The post is NOT for oneself to decide, nor is it a simple matter of coalition agreement. Hence, I disagree with the notion that you can simply exchange Prime Minister based on some pre-election agreement between Tun and Anwar. It is not for the two of them to decide. The matter is too big and too important. You can see how angry the Malays (the entire Malay population) are right now. So, I would be very careful not to do things behind their backs.

    The matter is actually out of Tun’s hands. If Tun wishes to step down, then he MUST call for a snap general elections and let the entire nation decide if they still wish for the PH to lead the country. Hence, the thing to do is to sit as Prime Minister UNTIL parliament runs its entire five-year course on 16 July 2023. But if Tun wants to step down earlier, then he should call for a snap general elections, the moment he steps down. And until the motion for snap general elections has been passed in parliament, Tun MUST stay as the country’s Prime Minister (his health permitting of course).

    Anything less than this will plunge the country into absolute chaos, politically, socially, and most frighteningly, economically.

  126. mubarakchan Nov 22,2019 10:50 PM

    Tun

    A headline which actually involves all of us, thus

    ” GOVERNMENT APPROVES RM30 MILLION FUND FOR TAR UC BUT MACA MUST RELINQUISH CONTROL, SAYS GUAN ENG. ”

    I have no objection to a political party losing control of a university which was set-up for all the Rakyat. I have had some experience with this TAR UC which I found it to be exclusive to my surprise. The control of this TAR UC seemed to be linked to the ever-changing MCA Leadership which may not be ideal for an academic foundation which must emphasise on the Freedom of Thought and Action independent of politics.

    Therefore in a diverse Nation like our beloved Malaysia, it is best not to have politically involved or linked universities at all. This was the reason why it took TAR UC such a long time to get approval for its university status. It’s history explains.

    A Trust Foundation with the right mix of academics, a Civil Servant and qualified good-wishers may be the answer.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

  127. mubarakchan Nov 22,2019 10:33 PM

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    Your wisdom as expressed in your comment on the appointment/election of the next Prime Minister is commendable because it covers the whole spectrum of the Malaysian electorate.

    Therefore, taking your comment to its logical conclusion, our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad would have achieved his objectives to come to a final closure about 12 months before the 15th GE which is the year 2022 or earlier. He would have kept his promise and DSAI has a bite of the cherry.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. The choice of a Leader in our beloved Malaysia today is extremely difficult due to the self-indulgence and self-immolation of 3 generations of Malay elite 1960-2018.

  128. twinpeaks Nov 22,2019 8:01 PM

    I agree with the lack of foresight of the current PH Minister of Law. I had never thought that this person is qualified for the post in the first place. For an important post like a minister of justice, in my view, the person needs to be scrutinized before he can be appointed. Especially with previous alleged corruption case(s), involving him or her, inside his or her own political party. Trustworthiness is a key element for a minister of the crown.

    Let the people decide in a snap general elections if they still want the PH party to be in government. Let the people decide if Tun is still wanted by the entire country. Never let another ambitious politician and his party cronies decide who should be Prime Minister. That is not their right. That is the right of the entire country to decide.

  129. mubarakchan Nov 22,2019 5:49 PM

    Tun

    People are strange in Life. For example, people will get together to make money when they have no money. Once the money is made, they will fight for the money. Likewise in Malaysian Politics, when the Harapan Opposition was out of Power, all were mild, timid and meek. Once, Harapan was in control, all broke loose to fight for Power/Money. It is time our politicians learn that there is more to gain by uniting and fighting together than fighting amongst themselves.

    With such a tenterhooks political scenario, the biggest Achilles Heel the Harapan has is the over 2 Million Bankrupts and their Relatives who are urbanised and ill-treated by the fake BN Minister of Law, PMO who misled the over 300,000 young Malay bankrupts that the Bankruptcy Act 2017 was revised. THE ACT WAS NOT REVISED AT ALL AS COMPARED WITH THAT IN SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, BRITAIN AND AUSTRALIA.

    According to a Letter to The Star, 25 June 2018, the fake BN Minister was influenced by financial interests to punish the bankrupts whilst Singapore, Hong Kong, Britain and Australia give the bankrupts a chance to begin a new leaf. As a result, the old Bankruptcy Act 1967 remained as it was with over 600,000 bankrupts incarcerated and the ‘revised’ Bankruptcy Act 2017 began in October 2017 with NO BANKRUPTS.

    Even the Marriage Reform Act 1982 recognised ALL MARRIAGES BEFORE 1982 BUT THE BANKRUPTCY ACT 2017 KEPT BACK ALL THE 600,000 BANKRUPTS FOR PUNISHMENT IN DEFERENCE TO THE ALLEGED FINANCIAL INTERESTS.

    How could this Corrupt Bankruptcy Act be permitted to exist under the New and Incorruptible Government ?

    Only a few months ago, the Harapan Minister of Law PMO said in the Dewan Rakyat that the 600,000 bankrupts are well looked after. He seemed to echo the sentiments of the FAKE BN MINISTER OF LAW PMO. It is high time he compares the fake Bankruptcy Act 2017 with those in Singapore, Hong Kong, Britain and Australia. And bring the Act on PAR WITH THESE COUNTRIES

    If nothing is done, as surely as the sun rises, the urbanised over 2,000,000 bankrupts and relatives will vote out the Harapan candidates in the towns.

    THIS GROUP OF OVER 2,000,000 URBANISED BANKRUPTS AND THEIR RELATIVES WILL BE INSTIGATED BY THE BN OPPOSITION TO VOTE AGAINST HARAPAN IF THE ACT IS NOT REVISED FAIRLY AND SQUARELY. The bankrupts have already been cheated once but not twice. SURELY THE BN OPPOSITION IS NOT GOING TO MISS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL OPPORTUNITY WHICH IS HARAPAN’S BIGGESST ACHILLES HEEL ! Or a huge chink in Harapan’s armour !

    Hence, with all due respect, the following Headline could be wrong, thus

    BN’S WIN IN TANJUNG PIAI DOES NOT GUARANTEE VICTORY IN GE15 ” Really ?

    WHO HAS THE BACKING OF THE OVER 2,000,000 URBANISED BANKRUPTS AND THEIR RELATIVES WILL WIN PUTRAJAYA ! If Harapan does not revised the fake Bankruptcy Act 2017, the loss of urban seats is a certainty.

    FOREWARNED IS FOREARMED.

    This is precisely what the naysayers, troublemakers, detractors, morons, treasonous Senior Civil Servants with Tan Sri-ships, Martians from Mars, fellow travellers, spies, swallows, ducks, tycoons, fortune-tellers etc want !

    Hence, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side is credible and effective to the consternation of the Opposition mob.

    All the cards are with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who is the decision maker not the Mickey Mice who will always be Mickey Mice.

    Well, it is very simple really. If Tun goes down, the whole ship will go down too. If the ingrates insist Tun to step down and succeed, Tun can just get the motion for snap general elections passed with a simple majority in parliament with UMNO/PAS and MCA support in May 2020.

    So, what will it be then..

  132. mubarakchan Nov 22,2019 6:18 AM

    Tun

    How many Malaysians noticed the following headline, yesterday ?

    ” ANWAR MEETS DR M WANTS PEACEFUL ORDERLY TRANSITION WITHIN REASONABLE TIME FRAME. ”

    This is the most significant headline in recent times. It is a good rebuttal to the baying of those who want our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the World’s Best Premier to-day to depart immediately.

    The motley mob is made up of detractors, trouble-makers, nay-sayers, morons, fellow travellers, treasonous Senior Civil Servants with Tan-Sri-ships, crypto-Singaporeans, spies, swallows, ducks, tycoons, fortune-tellers etc.

    I dare say that the good DSAI with patience has a complete understanding of the objectives which our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has to achieve to gain closure. Only the Tun knows best when to hand the baton of Power over to DSAI. Time should not be of the essence.

    As for DSAI, he has gained in stature and wisdom with his new-found strategy of gaining Power in the Putrajaya citadel once ruled by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    By the time our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team entered the Putrajaya citadel after 9 May 2018, the sight of it all was one of shock and awe due to the unbearable putrid stench arising from 14 years of all financial rape and wanton vandalism of whatever was at hand by the BN Government.

    The Harapan Manifesto was based on an orderly transition from one normally administered Government to another like any other Democracy. But the BN Government left behind the shambles which gave the appearance of a war-zone like what one sees every night on TV about the Hong Kong Boys’ Riots 2019 !

    With such a destroyed Government, the much wished for Reforms were hampered due to the urgency of Reconstruction and Rehabilitation of what was left of the Federal Government. This fact changed the whole façade of the Harapan Manifesto temporarily. The expected goodies could not flow smoothly down from the apex to the proletariat at the bottom. Naturally, a hue and cry could be heard all round.

    And with a new crew which were suddenly put to the task of being Ministers of the Federal Government, it takes time to gather momentum in unity within human capabilities.

    And so it is, that DSAI was able to understand and have the patience for our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to achieve his aims so that our beloved Malaysia is well-place on the road upwards to be like Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan as one of 4 important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia.

    The experience at the top and the wisdom of our DSAI will definitely hold sway as an Honourable Prime Minister of Malaysia.

    Our beloved Malaysia awaits the combined benefits from the efforts of the Best Prime Minister of the World Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and the Best Prime Minister to come in our DSAI who has now gained stature as recognised by the World.

    It is befitting for our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat that we have the services from this combination of the Tun and DSAI which is unique in the history of Malaysia. Where else but Malaysia ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. In you and DSAI we all TRUST !

    2. ” PM TAKES COGNISANCE OF MINISTERS GIVING PROJECTS FOR POLITICAL SUPPORT.”

    Dismiss them before the whole System becomes cancerous again.

    3. ” DR M. LOOK AT HK, ECONOMICALLY FRUSTRATED YOUTHS CAN BRING UNREST ”

    Our beloved Malaysia was on the brink of self-destruction as at 8 May 2018. But thanks to the wisdom, brilliance and courage of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the Rakyat have a second chance after 14 years of all out financial rape and wanton vandalism by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs – worse than the Rape of Sabine Women of Ancient Rome.

    4. ” SALWANI. THE PERSON WHO SAVED THE ORIGINAL 1MDB AUDIT REPORT.”

    This honest and loyal person should be awarded a Datuk-ship instead of all those sons of wanton mee sellers or lorry drivers or rubber tappers or lodging keepers.

    5. ” SINGAPORE ECONOMY FORECAST TO GROW 0.5% TO 2.5% in 2020. ” Before inflation ?

    Singapore’s Economic Model has failed.

    It failed with the failure of Lee Kuan Yew’s 4 Initiatives 2002-2019 to save his Legacy for his inheritors and Singapore being i) Temasek ii) FT imports iii) 2 casinos iv) Lee Kuan Yew’s TPPA/CPTPP to enslave our beloved Malaysia forever which also kill Malaysia/Malays/SMEs. Singapore’s GDP never breach 3% GDP since 2002 after the loss of her Uncle Sam’s blessed monopolistic trades of the Cold War 1948-1989 to the BRICS. This clearly showed Lee Kuan Yew could not master more powerful external forces – no matter how !

    Foolishly, Lee Kuan Yew failed to attain independence by investing ALL THE COLD WAR 1948-1989 PROFITS INTO GOLD AT US$300 per ounce before 2000. He was seduced through flattery by the Gnomes of Zurich to descend down to their lowly hoi-polloi level to be suck dry slowly slowly by them ! Ancient saying, ‘ THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A HIGHER MOUNTAIN. ‘

    For Singapore, the only opportunity now is to CONFEDERATE WITH THE UK ON EQUAL TERMS THERE IS NO SHAME IN THIS. Has the bland and uninspiring Leadership got the gumption, vision and courage to do the needful ?

    6. ” SINGAPORE NARROWS 2019 GDP GROWTH FORECAST TO 0.5% – 1% ON BIOMEDICAL, AEROSPACE SHOWING.” Before inflation ?

    Singapore clearly illustrates that it does not pay for a country to PLAY SECOND FIDDLE WITH ONLY 900,000 MALE CHINESE AGED 21 – 50 !

    She must have her own independent source of revenue always.

    7. ” THAI OCTOBER EXPORTS DROP 4.5% Y-O-Y LOWER THAN FORECAST.

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON THE GLCs.

    1. The Government entity to care for the mega Malay businesses in trouble was known as Danaharta.

    2. The operations of the Danaharta were opaque and businesses were sold without proper valuation to private individuals.

    3. The troubled companies which required money to be saved were all parcelled off to Khazanah which overnight became an Empire headed by a suave gent who operated of his own accord. From this, the huge IHH was created with huge assets in Turkey and India, countries known to have weak currencies and economies.

    4. Ancient saying, ‘ THE BEST WAY TO MAKE MONEY IS NOT TO OWN THE BUSINESS. ‘ No risk. No gain ?

    5. Khazanah was on its way to be a KINGDOM WITHIN A KINGDOM when the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs and SOEs was ousted on 9 May 2018.

    6. It is the Policy of any developing country to channel all financial strength towards the infra-structural development of the country for the sole benefit of the Rakyat. Not to create more projects to line the pockets of the leaders of Government who are already powerful and rich.

    7. Besides, how could civil servants and political appointees be better entrepreneurs than the original owners of the failed enterprises ? This is like putting the cat amongst the pidgeons.

    8. Lush expensive advertisements were put up in newspapers in praise of the fantastic profits made by the Khazanah owned companies loaded with political connotations. Sime Darby tried to do likewise. But it was difficult to cover the stink in a small country.

    9. The hot relationships and very close private retreats caused the following absurd pronouncement.

    ‘ WHAT IS GOOD FOR SINGAPORE IS GOOD FOR MALAYSIA. ‘ A stupid statement without thought.

  135. mubarakchan Nov 21,2019 3:36 PM

    Tun

    Kudos to the writer of a headline ” SUCCESSFUL GLCs ARE PUBLIC BOON.” This headline in a way is misleading but also enlightening due to the recent events which have exposed the wanton corruption and theft of public assets. As always, it pays to return to the basics to discover how GLCs/SOEs suddenly appeared in our midst since 2003 after our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad retired. Between 2003-2018, the GLCs/SOEs grew like cancer of Corruption which nearly kill our beloved Malaysia and her peoples within a space of 14 years due to greed and weakness of the flesh. The GLC Story began in Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore.

    In 1965, Lee Kuan Yew left Malaysia very happy but showed a sad façade. No one knew until recently that Lee Kuan Yew had the secret blessing of Uncle Sam to do the Cold War Monopolistic Questionable and Unmentionable Trades 1948-1989 which brought so much wealth that pushed Singapore from the 3rd World to the 1st World without any effort by Lee Kuan Yew.

    With this wealth, Lee Kuan Yew established the Jurong Industrial Park on the advice of Dr Albert Winsemius, the UN Dutch expert on economics and Adviser to the Singapore Government 1962-1984. It is now apparent Dr Winsemius had a dual role which was also to keep a baleful eye on the activities of Lee Kuan Yew on Uncle Sam’s behalf.

    Lee Kuan Yew encouraged Singaporean traders to establish industrial projects at the Park. All failed by 1972 because traders do not have the attributes of industrialists. The main purpose was to provide employment to the Malay sector of the community which was a main concern of the Singapore Government.

    With the failure of private enterprise at Jurong with few exceptions, the Singapore Government stepped in with its monopolistic enterprises like NOL, SIA, Far East Levingston, Chartered Industries, Keppel, etc. By the early 1980s, all these prospered being monopolies. Lee Kuan Yew coined them as Government Linked Companies or GLCs.

    Lee Kuan Yew developed a Government controlled business which fitted in with his creation the Anti-Cambridge Godless Neo-communist Political and Socio-economic System – a half way house between authoritarian Communism with a central command and Western Democracy as we know it.

    Suddenly in 1989, Communism collapsed. Both Russia and China thought Lee Kuan Yew’s GLCs were a perfect fit to fill the void in their collapsed Communist Central Command Systems. Both embraced it fully and wholeheartedly. Little did these countries discover that GLCs spawned Corruption and Nepotism on a huge scale in the huge countries. There are now 100 Chinese on the run from China.

    GLCs only work in a tiny one street town like Singapore which was personally monitored by Lee Kuan Yew because in Singapore, everyone’s personal information is just a whisper away. SIA is one of the most closely monitored GLCs unlike MAS even the MDs have lush luxury London condos worth millions of pounds. That’s the difference.

    How did the GLCs appear in our beloved Malaysia all of a sudden ?

    Remember the crisis of 1997 ? All the Malay owned conglomerates were in difficulties. An Government entity was set up to house them and keep the businesses and jobs going.

    After 2003 when our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad retired, those manning this Government entity which housed all the once mega Malay businesses had thoughts which were privy only to themselves. The best were inveigled out to personal or private interests. The rest were politicised by announcing that ‘GLCs PROTECT MALAY BUSINESS INTERESTS AND MAKE MONEY FOR THE MALAY RAKYAT.’ This announcement I remember very well. The whole rigmarole was inspired by a fellow who immigrated into the Malaysian GLCs domain from the private sector. He became the de facto head or tycoon of the Malaysian Government GLCs Empire which lasted till May 2018.

    A famous ancient saying, ” THE BEST WAY TO MAKE MONEY IS NOT TO OWN THE BUSINESS.” See, no riskes, no capital up-front.

    From this point, sometime in 2004, Malaysian GLCs/SOEs popped up everywhere. THUS DESTROYING THE AGE-OLD POLITICAL SYSTEM OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WITH OFF-BUDGET SPENDING WITHOUT LIMIT GUARANTEED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. It is now well-known that this PLOY benefitted only a handful of Malays through the Corruption and abuse of the GLCs/SOEs, probably not more than 50 out of 16 millions Malays. Of course, the non-Malays suffered because we Malaysians can only exist according to our revered Constitution safe-guarded by the Yang Di Pertuan Agong and the Royal Sultans.

    The 50 Malay individuals or more thus DESTROYED THE POLITICAL AND SOCIO-SYSTEM VIA THE GLCs/SOEs against their own and the Rakyats’ interests. Thus killing the goose that laid the golden eggs. Stupid.

    This GLCs/SOE’s caper has NO BUSINESS TO BE WITHIN OUR DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM MALAYSIAN STYLE. The sooner we get rid of ALL except for TNB, TELEKOM, PLUS the better. GLCs/SOEs are the precursor of UNCONTROLLABLE CORRUPTION, ABUSE AND NEPOTISM IN A DEMOCRACTIC SYSTEM. No other democratic system in the World practises it. THERE ARE ONLY 4 COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD WHICH HAVE GLCs/SOEs. eg

    1. SINGAPORE – AN AUTHORITARINA GOVERNMENT ACKNOWLEDGED AS SUCH BY THE WEST A LONG TIME AGO SINCE THE 1970s.

    2. RUSSIA – AN AUTHORITARIAN GOVERNMENT

    3. CHINA – AN AUTHORITARIAN GOVERNMENT.

    4. MALAYSIA – DEMOCRATIC WITH ISLAM AS THE OFFICIAL RELIGION

    Malaysia will fall on her own sword if she carries on with the GLCs/SOEs AS SURELY AS THE SUN RISES. Corruption, abuse and nepotism will RETURN WITH A VENGEANCE. No doubt about this.

    Therefore, thus

    1. SELL THE GLCs/SOEs TO THE INCUMBENT MANAGEMENT AND ITS ASSOCIATES.

    2. SELL THE GLCs/SOEs TO THE FORMER OWNERS IF THEY HAVE NOT BROKEN THE LAWS.

    3. SELL THE GLCs/SOEs TO NEW OWNERS.

    How many Malaysians realise that Sime Darby instead of investing in Proton etc, did property development in direct competition with the private sector or invest in developed countries like Australia and New Zealand in agencies instead of assisting in the development of an emerging country like Malaysia like taking business risks in capturing Volvo, Jaguar, Land Rover etc.?

    In a developing country like our beloved Malaysia, EVERY RINGGIT AND SEN IS PRECIOUS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT AND BENEFIT OF THE RAKYAT BECAUSE THERE IS NO FREE LUNCH IN THIS WORLD. !

    Vide the Annual Reports of the UN. World Bank and IMF, between 2002 to 2018, OVER 1.50 TRILLION RINGGITS WERE SIPHONED OUT OVERSEAS FROM MALAYSIA. The host countries have benefitted from this black money deposited there. What about Malaysia ?

    For a sanguine assessment of a Malaysian’s worth these days, FIRST GET A VALUATION OF THE HOUSE. SECOND, TRY TO SELL IT. First, a person would have discovered that his/her house is worth 20% – 30% less than its expected value. Second, he/she will find NO BUYERS !

    In other words, the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs stole so much money out of the System via off-budget spending that all values of assets reduced by 20% – 40% concomitant with the rise of inflation etc.

    THE FAMOUS GLCs/SOEs which have been exposed are thus

    1. TELEKOM – A MONOPOLLY WHICH BUYS LOSS MAKING BUSINESSES FROM THE NON-MALAYS.

    2. TNB – A MONOPOLY WHICH FINDS IT DIFFICULT TO MAKE MONEY. I know an authentic case in Taman Tun Hussein Onn in which a house has over 10 air-conditioners and paid pea-nuts to TNB !

    3. SIME DARBY – The same Management bankrupted Sime Darby twice by doing business with crooked Chinese, RM 1.2 Billion in 1996 and RM 2.1o Billion in 2010. No one was prosecuted. No one went to jail. Naturally, more bankruptcies to come.

    4. IHH – Where profits are boosted by paper M & A. Soon the whole paper façade will explode to show only hot air as an asset. Fully guaranteed by the Federal Government.

    5. THE FELDA GROUP. The Indonesian Eagle had the best pick followed by the Management naturally.

    6. THE LTAT/BOUSTEAD GROUP. THE WORST OIL PALM ESTATE IN THE WHOLE OF MALAYSIA WAS BOUGHT AT THE HIGHEST PRICE IN THE WHOLE OF MALAYSIA JUST BEFORE THE FALL OF THE BN GOVERNMENT on 9 May 2018.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. No GLCs for us. We are Malaysians not Chinese, Russians or Singaporeans.

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    In response on you discourse on the Malaysian Politics of today with a retrospective view of what should or should not have been done, I will now express my opinion on your 4 salient points, thus :

    Point One – I agree. I have brought up the weaknesses of the PKR/DAP before here and in other blogs as follows.

    i) In 1997, if DSAI had taken a holiday in the United States, he would have returned as the Honourable Prime Minister because of external circumstances which weakened the incumbent.

    ii) In 2008, if the Opposition had sorted out the 32 Aduns before and not after the GE, they would have been in Putrajaya since. This would have cost them no money.

    iii)In 2013, if the Opposition had gone on a 100 day fast to the death which even Gandhi did not attempt in the full glare of the World, they would have been in Putrajaya since.

    1v) For the 2018 GE, I suggested the DAP join the BN to gain Power. But they joined Bersatu/PKR instead which was even better.

    Now, the Malaysian Politics have congealed into two groups the Reds and the Blues like this

    a. The Reda. Bersatu/PKR/DAP = All Head and no Body.

    b. The Blues. UMNO/PAS/MCA/MIC = All Body and no Head.

    I reckon this is the harbinger to come for future Malaysian Politics – a good harbinger to build up a Nation like Switzerland, Japan and India.

    POINTS 2 & 3 – I agree.

    POINT 4. Interesting comment on past history which is the arbiter of the Truth. Let us look at history i.e.

    15 August 1945 – The World War in the East had ended. Soon a Labour Government under Clement Atlee took over from the Conservatives led by Winston Churchill. The British Government proposed a Malayan Union giving enfranchisement to all the inhabitants of Malaya which consisted of the Federated and Unfederated Malay States. Soon the Malays via the Sultans were up in arms after the latter were informed by their British Advisers what would have been the true picture. The Non-Malays would be in control of Malaya with political and economic power in their hands. The traditional power of the Sultans with British Advisers would pass to the Non-Malays. The outcry by the Malays was enough for the British to abort the Malayan Union which was replaced by the British Military Administration 1945-1950 with which the British Labour Government was uncomfortable.

    In the meantime, two significant events took place in the British Empire.

    The 1947 Independence of India and Partition which brought over 1 million deaths and injuries. The British at the end just ran off leaving the Kashmir Princely State unresolved to this very day as the Tommies were tired of War.

    The 1949 Founding the State of Israel with lands grabbed from the Palestinians with foreign support.

    The lessons learnt by the British from these two significant events put paid to the 1951 founding of the Federation of Malaya with the Sultans still holding Power with Brtiish Advisers. By 1957, the Power of the Sultans passed seamlessly to the Rakyat via the Federal Government and a Constitution which safe-guards the Sultans and the Rakyat. The rest is history.

    At this point, 1951 the British held 70% of the best assets of the Malayan economy, a hot Communist insurgency was on whilst the Chinese held 25% of the third rate assets of the economy and the Malays 2%.

    And with a fine hind-sight the Vernacular Schools were left alone to its devices. May be at that time, these schools were apolitical and treated like Cinderella who did not grow into an adult because the years of suppression by the British who kept a baleful eye on them all. the time through a cohort of school inspectors in attendance. Also, the Malayan negotiators could not foresee what the future affecting the Vernacular Schools will be.

    Finally, no one proposed that sometime in the future, all citizens will be called upon to recognise and serve the Sovereignty and National Interest of Malaya. Hence, a Plan to Malayanise the Vernacular Schools could have been laid out over a period of 50 years since 1957. If someone had thought this out, the regret of granting approximately 1,000,000 citizenships to the Chinese would not have risen today. However, the NEP was formulated by Tun Abdul Razak and his Team which had served the country well. The same could have occurred if there was a Plan in 1957 for the Vernacular Schools which were actually at their weakest in 1957 !

    AS HISTORY IS THE FINEST ARBITER OF THE TRUTH, THE 1,000,000 CHINESE DID CONTRIBUTE TO THE WELL-BEING OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA LIVING TODAY IN PEACE, HARMONY AND PROSPERITY.

    WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF THESE 1,000,000 CHINESE WERE NOT CITIZENS ? I shudder to conjecture.

    Let me just state the facts. In 1972, I developed the Concept of controlling British interests by buying Sime Darby first with the support of the Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak and his confidant YBM Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah. In 2 years, the Malay interests ran out of money at RM 23 Million. There were no lush money for the Malays in those days. Without telling anyone, I managed to get 2 Singapore corporates to help via an important Singaporean intermediary. By November 1975, Malaysian interest were in control. It was not until 1982, that a suitable Malay could be found to be the Managing Director of Sime Darby which continued on until with no contribution to the National Interest ever since. In 1982, I suggested Sime Darby to control all the palm bunkering port facilities of China. They purportedly set-up a small one at Port Said Egypt. Ten years later, the KLK, IOI, and the Kuok Group controlled all. But by 2010 Sime Darby spent RM 2 Billion on a port in the backside of China. Now no one wants to buy this investment which Sime Darby is selling.

    My intention for Sime Darby in Malaysian hands was to purchase and transfer light engineering British companies to Malaysia on the one hand and on the other, to provide assistance and technical know-how to Malaysians by transfer. Instead, Sime Darby was turned into a fine British like trading company to sell goods for principals to this day in lush places like Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand which does not benefit the National Interest – that’s 44 years of wasteful investment. Sime Darby should have taken over Volvo, Jaguar and Land Rover a long time ago.

    WHAT DID THE SIME DARBY DEBACLE SHOW SO VIVIDLY FROM 1972-2019 ?

    THAT A MALAYSIAN OUT OF HIS OWN VOLITION AND WITHIN HIS LIMITED CAPACITY ASSISTED THE MALAYS INTO BIG BUSINESS VIA THE FAST TREK. All know that it is impossible to do so with RM 23 Million.

    I was asked to resign from Sime Darby in 1992 by the Malaysian Management whose jobs I created after there was no SCANDAL for 18 years. Even shortly before this, Sime Darby was doing crooked business with crooked Chinese like Benta, Bukit Beruntong (Nova Scotia Estate)

    TWO SIME DARBY GIGANTIC BANKRUPTCIES FOLLOW IN 1996 AND 2010 AT RM 1.2 bILLION AND RM 2,10 BILLION RESPECTIVEL. No one was asked to leave. No one was prosecuted.

    Lest we forget. On 13 May 1969, the British owned 70% of the best assets, the Chinese 25% of the 3rd rate with a handful of tycoons. and the Malays just 2%. All the time the British let it be known that the Chinese profiteered in their business. THE FACT WAS THE CHINESE WERE JUST DISTRIBUTORS OF BRITISH GOODS TAX FREE UNDER THE EMPIRE PREFERENCE. The British preferred them because the Chinese traders took the risks and provided the credit right through from the centre to the periphery.

    LET US MALAYSIANS LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES AND REMEMBER OUR SUCCESSES. ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY. IT TOOK SWITZERLAND 800 YEARS, JAPAN 3,000 AND INDIA 5,000. These countries have diverse populations except Japan.

    For our beloved Malaysia, IT IS DEFINITELY NOT THE END OF THE WORLD BUT JUST THE BEGINNING.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. It is interesting to note that the late Minister of Finance Tun Tan Siew Sin was one of the panellists who formulated the Constitution of Mauritius because of the success of the Constitution of Malaya/Malaysia.

  137. twinpeaks Nov 18,2019 6:38 PM

    I am going to say a few words on the state of politics in Malaysia as I see it…

    1) PH would NEVER have formed a government if TUN Dr. Mahathir and our Bersatu Party had not come to help the frail opposition coalition of PKR/DAP/AMANAH or whatever else, in the 2018 general elections. If anyone think (and I know most Chinese so-called political analysts in this blog and the newspapers etc. don’t agree with me, but who gives a S*** what the Chinese think), if any one think that the present government should force Tun to step down to make way for whoever wants the post, then PH can forget about winning even a tenth of the votes in the next general elections. Because by then we (Bersatu party) will be joining hands with our fellow Bumiputera/Muslim parties in the BN coalition. It will be Bersatu/UMNO/PAS with junior MCA/MIC against everyone else. And let’s see if you can beat that combined political force for decades to come. SO, I WOULD BE VERY CAREFUL IF ANY CHINESE WISH TUN TO STEP DOWN.

    2) Like I said before, it is false to think that voters did not vote according to racial self-interest in the by-election. On the contrary, the Malays who voted for Bersatu in 2018, had returned back to vote for BN simply because the Malays have been very defensive of the erosion of power since PH formed the government. If you are asking how this is so, well.. just listen to the rousing speeches of Datuk Seri Najib and others. And what did they say? They said that, what Maruah or Dignity does the Malay community have left when PH gave the Finance Minister post to a non-Malay. THAT IS WHY ALL THE MALAYS HAVE TURNED THEIR BACKS ON BERSATU, and not some stupid comments about the state of the economy. Do you think that people don’t know that GST was created by the BN government? The point is, it is not the economy stupid, it is the loss of D-I-G-N-I-T-Y.

    3) There is no such thing as the NEW MALAYSIA. The average Malaysian is still as gullible as ever, they still spit on the street, throw rubbish everywhere, asking for handouts as ever. NEW MALAYSIA does not depend on the change of government. NEW MALAYSIA come from the change in mentality of ordinary people.

    4) I leave this last remark last. It is for the Chinese bigots in this country. You (the Chinese) should be forever grateful that you were accidentally given citizenship, which to my mind, should NOT have been given AT ALL.

    SO, STOP WHINING, AND ASSIMILATE YOURSELVES INTO THE CULTURAL WAYS OF THE COUNTRY YOU ARE CURRENTLY IN.

    Bersatu-led PH government is the ONLY hope that you will EVER get, to get anything in your favour. It is not much, but JUST ACCEPT WHATEVER IS GIVEN TO YOU, NO MATTER HOW LITTLE. STOP ASKING FOR THIS AND THAT. STOP ASKING FOR THE EDUCATION MINISTRY TO RECOGNIZE THE STUPID UEC, and so on. I can tell you, the more you ask, the more you will be isolated, and the more you will suffer. That is the likely outcome once the Barisan Nasional come back to power in the next general elections.

    There..

    Tun.

    Another happy day. Another peaceful and harmonious day for all of us, the Rakyat of our beloved Malaysia. Where else but Malaysia ?

    Like you and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah, we are all born optimists otherwise we would not last a single day in our profession. And so it is for us, Tun, a life of over 100 years. Sorry, detractors, troublemakers, naysayers, morons, Martians from Mars, crypto-Singaporeans, treasonous Tan Sri Civil Servants, tycoons, spies, swallows, ducks etc. who are all for want of happiness because they have been paid to be sad and say “No !” all the time. Vide. http://www.onlinecitizen.com ‘Albatross Files’ reported Lee Kuan Yew threatened the journalists to show him crying only. Tunku responded when told, ‘ He left me very happy ‘. Who would you believe ?

    With this background, headlines galore this morning Tun of varied descriptions and happenings !

    1. ” SULTAN NAZRIN JOINS THOUSANDS IN BIRTHDAY RUN. ” Where else but Malaysia ?

    2. ” DR MAHATHIR TO OFFICIATE WORLD’S LARGEST PALM OIL CONGRESS ” Where else but Malaysia ?

    3. ” SINGAPORE’S OCTOBER NON-OIL EXPORTS FALL FOR 8 STRAIGHT MONTHS ”
    Dear Singaporeans, It’s time you think 21st Century and not 19th Century ! No ideas ? Ask our PM !

    4. ” POLICE STORM HONG KONG UNIVERSITY AFTER DAY OF VIOLENCE “. The meek, mild and timid Hong Kong ? I thought it was Baghdad !

    5. ” HONG KONG POLICE STORM UNIVERSITY HELD BY PROTESTORS ” Violence will not get anyone anywhere !

    6. ” HONG KONG POLICE SEAL OFF UNIVERSITY AMID FEARS OF CRACKDOWN. ”
    Catch the culprits. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.!

    7. ” CHIN TONG. TANJUNG PIAI IS START OF HARAPAN’S END ….OR A NEW BEGINNING. ” The Oracle of Kluang speaks. Your guess is as good as mine because PH is as good as its strongest link the PM and PKR !

    8. ” WEE GET THINGS MOVING. PH FAILED IN TAKING CARE OF THE PEOPLE “.
    These days all want to take care of the people from the nursery in the Dewan Rakyat via the ‘anti-bottom Bill’ etc. In 1972, two Singaporean banks nearly got into a scrap when one called the other a ‘wee’ bank !

    9. ” WE HAVE TOO MANY DOCTORS ? REALLY. ” The more professionals the better stupid ! Britain is importing 5,000 doctors the next 5 years.

    10. ” TAGGED ELEPHANT DIED FROM POISON ” Close down all the z00s in this World and return to the animals their rights !

    My happiness today stems from the realization that finally Democracy is reaching Puberty in our beloved Malaysia eg.

    The two contending Parties, in UK its Tories and Labour, the US the GOP and the Democrats and in our beloved Malaysia

    1. The PH which is all head and no BODY !

    2. The BN which is all body and NO HEAD ‘

    Hence, such a situation is ideal for the growth of Democracy. And both have tons and tons of money ! The choice is yours, folks ! A good platform for our descendants to come. Switzerland took 800 years of confederation. India 5,000 years and Japan 3,000 years. Fantastic !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENTS ON TANJUNG PIAI BY-ELECTION.

    How many Malaysians know that the MCA actually provided goodies to the Chinese through the decades. For example, in 1969 in Johor, with the support of the State Government and the revered Sultan, MCA could arrange plots of land for the Chinese in Johor. This was one reason why the Johor State was a MCA bastion for so long in conjunction with a progressive State Government and a caring Sultan. In even earlier days, the MCA cohorts got as many Chinese to register as citizens as possible. There were little Napoleons then ! As for how the MCA leaders became rich, it is another story.

    MCA operated under very difficult circumstances with the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs when CASH IS KING BECAME OFFICIAL.

    At its heyday, BN big-wigs all had goons dressed in black. I was pushed off the road once by a MIC big-wig from Sungei Siput whose goons not only crashed his white Porsche Cayenne into by humble Toyota but also kidnapped me by taking hold of the keys and forced me to drive to the Sime Darby Porsche workshop where the Tan Sri was well-known for using his Porsche like a runaway tank. The left door of the Porsche collapsed. My Toyota did not have a single scratch ! Man proposes. God disposes. This MIC contractor lost big at the 14th GE ! I did not complain. I did not explain. (Courtesy Henry Ford II 1962). The Tan Sri forced me to pay RM 10,000 for the damages to his car created by himself. He proudly gave me his business card and asked where I lived. And added he lived at Damansara Heights. I replied, ” Bukit Tunku “. I saw him rolling his eyes. Not many weeks later, a drunken Chinaman crashed his car into my garden. He paid me RM 13,000 ! Man proposes. God disposes. Sometimes, it pays to act stupid to eat the Tiger !

    During the 14 years of Malaysia’s Dark Ages, when Cash was King, all those with Power and Money lost their heads. None were listening or aware of the complete deterioration of the Malaysia we knew before 2003. This was a fact. Because since 1954, I always loved to operate at ground zero to get a feel of the Real World. Another instance, I was queuing up at the ticket counter at KL Sentral for sometime. Suddenly, a goon in black squeezed in front of me. Such acts tell me things were getting really bad like darkest Africa where the strong bully the weak.

    And what happened to the venerable BN on 9 May 2018 ?

  140. mubarakchan Nov 17,2019 2:36 PM

    Tun

    A wonderful morning in a wonderful country inhabited by wonderful peoples. The morning after a wonderful by-election which demonstrated the progress of democracy since 1957 as practised by the wonderful peoples of this happy Land. What more can we ask ? The serious business of the day are best exemplified by the following headlines, two of my creation and the rest by professional hacks, thus

    1. ” A MESSAGE FROM HEAVEN ” to remind Man proposes. God disposes.

    2. ” A SWALLOW DOES NOT MAKE AN INDIAN SUMMER. ” Indians should know best with their 5,000 years of civilisation.

    The following from professionals with vested interests, thus

    3. ” BARISAN PULLS OFF A DECISIVE WIN. ” Not quite. This is only a catchy headline with no substance.

    4. ” TANJUNG PIAI A PERFECT RIPOSTE TO DR M’s HUBRIS “. The writer thinks he is a better PM. Dr M is really doing National Service this time round. Until 2010 when I visited him there was no inkling whatsoever he desired to be the PM. His family also was against it.

    5. ” TANJUNG PIAI. HADI CALLS IT A VOTE AGAINST ‘EXTREMISM’. Good Haji. There are no more extremists in our beloved Malaysia today.

    6. ” TANJUNG PIAI. CHINESE VOTERS ABANDON HARAPAN AT MORE THAN DOUBLE THE RATE OF MALAY AREAS. ” The Chinese practise rice-bowl politics. The Malays practise Leadership politics. Hence, the twain will never meet.

    7. ” CHINESE HAVE RETURNED TO BN. ” Wishful thinking by a born optimist.

    And here is my take on the future of HARAPAN, thus

    1. The Harapan has reached a milestone successfully and this is the final mile to the 15th GE to gird themselves and push the wheel to further success. It must be remembered the Malays practise Leadership Politics. The Chinese practise rice-bowl politics and never forget about ill-treatment and promises.

    The Americans forget easily. The British try not to forget. The French never forget. The Chinese never never never forget. The Malaysians forgive and forget.

    2. In 1954, a handful of towkays could finance the Alliance with RM 400,000. In the early 1980s, an UMNO Tan Sri told me that a person with RM 20 million may cause a lot of trouble to the BN. I shudder to think how many billions of ringgits now required by noticing that the strolling mobs in recent years wore nice garments, munch KFCs, ride Yamahas, surrounded by male or female buddies, and mum and dad just a phone call away. And putting up posters were a dime a dozen which would have escalated to RM 1 a piece ! BIG BUCKS ARE REQUIRED TO WIN THESE DAYS !

    3. THE GRASSROOTS SHOULD BE FIGHTING FIT BY THE 15TH GE. THIS MEANS THE FOLKS ARE WELL-PAID AND BE WARNED THAT THEY WILL BE EATING GRASS IF HARAPAN LOSES AT THE 15TH GE.

    4. A STRONG BRAIN-WASHING UNIT BE APPLIED ON ALL QUARTERS.

    5. FRIVOLOUS YBs ENCOURAGED TO WORK AS A TEAM AND DO NOT SEEK PERSONAL GLORY LIKE ONE OR TWO IN THE INCUMBENT GOVERNMENT

    6. A BIG STIMULUS PROGRAM FOR THE SOCIO-ECONOMY BE PREPARED AND LAUNCHED AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME. THE EARLIER THE BETTER. For the very first time, Malaysian Politics will have to hold sway/overide over conventional economics. How much ? And when ? The whip is in Harapan’s hands.

    7. The more in-fighting in Harapan. The faster they will be shown the exit at the 15th GE. BECAUSE ALL THE RAKYAT ARE FED-UP WITH THE DIRE STATE OF THE ECONOMY CREATED BY THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs WHICH REASON THE RAKYAT DO NOT UNDERSTAND. They only understand clean money in their pockets as all are financially stretched.

    8. All Rakyat are sore with the lack of tangible goodies since May 2018 because they do not understand the causative effects of all-out Financial Rape and Corruption left by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    9. AND THE BIGGEST TIME BOMB OF ALL IS THE BUNGLED BANKRUPTCY ACT 2017 BY THE FAKE BN MINISTER OF LAW. OVER 600,000 BANKRUPTS WERE LEFT TO BE MANAGED BY THE OLD ACT. BUT THE NEW ACT BEGAN WITH NO BANKRUPTS. THE NEW MINISTER OF LAW (Sabah) SAID IN THE DEWAN RAKYAT RECENTLY THAT THE BANKRUPTS ARE WELL-LOOKED WITHOUT MUCH FEELING FOR THE PENINSULA. IN SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, BRITAIN AND AUSTRALIA, THE BANKRUPTCY ACT IS UP TO DATE AND BANKRUPTS ARE GIVEN THE BEST CHANCE TO RECOVER. IN MALAYSIA THE ACT IS STILL VICTORIAN WHEREBY THE BANKRUPTS ARE PUNISHED. IT WAS ALLEGED THAT CORRUPT FINANCIAL INTERESTS HAD INFLUENCE OVER THE NEW BANKRUPTCY ACT 2017. Vide. The Star Letter to the Editor 25 June 2018.

    The time bomb if the Bankruptcy Act is NOT SERIOUSLY REVISED, is the over 600,000 urbanised bankrupts with their families which will total up to over 2 million urbanised voters to VOTE AGAINST HARAPAN IN ALL THE TOWNS. AS SURELY AS THE SUN RISES, THE BN WILL EXPLOIT THIS ACHILLES HEEL (AND INSTIGATE THIS LUSH 2 MILLION VOTERS CACHE) NOT ONLY OF HARAPAN BUT DAP SPECIFALLY. DAP can end up with NO SEATS worse than MCA today. IT IS ALSO STUPID OF THE BN NOT TO EXPLOIT THIS CHINK IN THE HARAPAN ARMOUR. BY JUST A STROKE BN WINS ALL THE TOWNS AND THE COUNTRYSIDE AS WELL. Then Harapan returns to a status worse than its low in 2004 !

    FOREWARNED IS FOREARMED IN REALPOLITIK.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem In you we all TRUST. Acheh !

    Tun

    FOR TWIN PEAKS.

    Thanks for bringing up the latest on how the developed West view the undeveloped East these days after they have cut down all the trees in their forests dislodging Robin Hood and Maid Marian and the Pied Piper of Hamelin.

    For years certain well-endowed agencies in the West have lobbied against the destruction of tropical forests in Indonesia and Malaysia in direct confrontation with the poor emerging countries instead of adopting what Henry Kissinger calls ‘ an ambiguous approach may be the life-blood of diplomacy.’ The French approach to the bio-fuel issue is like taking from the poor to give to the rich. The poor will never become rich. I believe the following should take place :-

    1. A top level Summit between EU and ASEAN should take place as a matter of urgency on Free Trade terms.

    2. Let both sides iron out their differences based on the basics.

    3. Let the EU notes that both Indonesia and Malaysia are democracies like the West. Both their economies are advancing well according to Western democratic concepts.

    4. Why cut off our limbs as both countries are beginning to walk ? Not forgetting France’s own Liberty, Equality and Fraternity.

    5. The present stark difference of opinion may be surmounted by an understanding by the EU that the production of more palm oil is an absolute necessity for both Indonesia and Malaysia to survive from the monetary returns so engendered i.e. this is an important component of our economic wherewithal to up-keep the sanctity of Democracy as practised. In this respect, Indonesia should be rewarded for surmounting her past difficulties and not punished by the well-ensconced literati of the Western World.

    6. If the EU demands that there should be no more destruction of tropical forests, where on Earth may Indonesia and Malaysia garner money to up-keep the sustainability of their peoples within the Western democratic context ?

    The answer is a form of subsidy from the EU for both countries to vastly reduce forest destruction. A formula may be worked out to create an equation. This means more aid less forest destruction or less aid more forest destruction. It is for both sides to work out what the aid will be, money, goods or services ?

    7. The attitude taken by France is not only ham-fisted but colonial. The Francophone African countries laid bare of forests provide due testimony as to how they were ruled during the Colonial days.

    8. SINCE THE EU TREATS ASEAN LIKE A COLONY, THEN ASEAN SHOULD LINK WITH THE UNITED KINGDOM AS AN EQUAL PARTNER TO CREATE A BIGGER VOLUME OF FREE TRADE BOTH WAYS. WE SELL UNLIMITED DUTY FREE PALM OIL TO UK AND WE BUY UNLIMITED UK GOODS AND SERVICES. LET THE EU DEAL WITH RUSSIA.

    9. Finally, it is often said,’ THE AMERICANS FORGET EASILY. THE BRITISH TRY NOT TO FORGET. THE FRENCH NEVER FORGET. THE CHINESE NEVER NEVER NEVER FORGET. THE MALAYSIANS FORGIVE AND FORGET.’

    Therefore on this score. WE MUST NEVE FORGET THAT SOON AFTER OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA GAINED MERDEKA IN 1957. OUR TROOPS WERE PART OF THE UNITED NATIONS CONTINGENTS KEEPING PEACE NOT ONLY IN CONGO BUT ALSO SOMALIA AND LEBANON IN THE GENERAL INTEREST OF THE EU AND THE WORLD. Malaysia did not demand a single sen in return for her good deed and compassion in the name of Peace in all the World.

    Malaysia also believes in Liberty, Equality and Fraternity like the French. The First League of Nations after World War I was established in Versailles, France. We have a lot in common. Why not talk before banning palm oil ? Why have a direct confrontation when we are actually good friends ? Let not a few French francs or Euros be between us and keep us apart. This is not Liberty, Equality and Fraternity !

    NOW OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IS MADE TO SUFFER BECAUSE CERTAIN COUNTRIES HAVE SHORT MEMORIES. Is there no justice and fairness in this World, France and EU ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Try and try again like Robert Bruce of Scotland. we will succeed. The ban should be postponed until all avenues to resolve this problem have been exhausted. Acheh !

    Tun,

    ADDENDUM ON MY COMMENT ABOUT THE WRITER WHO IS NOT AWARE HE LIVES IN WONDERFUL MALAYSIA AMONGST HER WONDERFUL PEOPLES, thus

    ” RACIAL POLITICS PLAYED BY DESPERATE PARTIES. DR M ”

    My rebuttal of the anti-Harapan writer is in support of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad succinct headline..

  143. mubarakchan Nov 16,2019 8:36 AM

    Tun

    Here is a headline which speaks volumes in favour of those with a brain of a mouse-deer and the thick hide of an elephant, thus,

    ” WHY WAIT THREE YEARS TO PUNISH PAKATAN WHEN WE CAN DO IT NOW ”

    First I dare say that the media which encouraged such foolish sentiments is as culpable as those who are responsible which I will state accordingly.

    Second, a foolish statement like this can only come from a fake, detractor, naysayer, trouble-maker, moron, fellow-traveller, treasonous Senior Civil Servant ennobled with a Tan Sri-ship but sleeps with the enemy, Martian from Mars, crypto-Singaporean, a fellow with no father or mother, a swallow, a duck etc. Where else but Malaysia ?

    Third, the writer is obviously deaf, dumb and blind not to notice the beauty and well-endowed natural resources of our beloved Malaysia. He is obviously a candidate for the Woodbridge Hotel, Singapore. He lives amongst the wonderful peoples of Malaysia and did not notice even though it is reported that certain specimens became racist after being elected. Are not these real fakes or fake fakes, Tun ?

    Fourth, the opportunities now available before all Rakyat which were created by the Harapan, were never available under the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs. What are doable under the revered Constitution, will be done !

    Fifth, what has non-Harapan contenders got to offer for the PM’s post ? The writer himself ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. The problem will arise when Malaysia bans Indian barbers from working here. This may affect our mind-sets accordingly to act funny.

    Here is an interesting news just out of France.. a exactly a day after the National Assembly voted in favour of extending the tax breaks on palm oil biodiesel production until 2026, President Macron’s government under pressure from influential environmentalist movement Greenpeace and his own MPs, again put the extension to a second vote. This time it was reversed by 58-2 MPs. This effectively delist palm oil biofuel from a list of permitted biofuels in France from January 2020 onward. French MPs and senators argued that palm oil biodiesel production is directly responsible for the destruction of forests and orang utan and other wildlife habitat in Malaysia and Indonesia (… which I rather not comment about, as a Sabahan).

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON THE 13 MAY 1969 RIOTS.

    One main factor which I inadvertently left out was the huge victory demonstrations by the Left Wing and the Opposition parties along the roads and streets of Kuala Lumpur after the General Elections. A huge ruckus was raised as the procession slowly moved along concomitant with all sorts of insults and abuses which would have raised the ire of anyone. On second thought, the gangsters of Kuala Lumpur and Singapore were as one on that fateful night. The whole episode was both intimidating and outright aggressive. I was there.

    By 1972, Lee Kuan Yew could register 2,000 Singaporean gangsters. He neutralised and sanitized them by permitting them to work in Johor Baru day or night. And they returned to Singapore after work to their families to sleep and rest. Crime disappeared in a jiffy in Singapore .

  146. mubarakchan Nov 15,2019 6:34 PM

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    Kudos to you for bringing up issues which are dear to the hearts of all responsible Rakyat and irresponsible politicians, naysayers, trouble-makers, detractors, morons, Martians from Mars, crypto-Singaporeans, fellow travellers, treasonous Senior Civil Servants, spies, swallows and ducks etc.

    Let us begin with the basics being the real historical façade of ye old Kuala Lumpur not more than 50 years ago.

    1. In 1969, Damansara and Bangsar were part of the Socfin Estate, OUG, TTDI, Bandar Utama, Up-Town, Damansara Jaya were all rubber estates. Jalan Duta was a dead-end road. Sri Hartamas, Puchong (Castlefield) and Kinrara were also rubber estates. Lornie Road which ran between the old Istana Negara and Sungei Klang tapered off into the venerable Old Klang Road as the dead-end. Old tin mines lined both sides of the road which ran North from Jalan Ipoh. These mines are now known as Taman Wahyu and Selayang with hordes of people and cars milling around wholesale markets.

    Kuala Lumpur town was just a big model of all the other towns which line the trunk road running from Singapore to Penang.

    The only Malays seen were those in the Civil Service or drivers. There were only two tall buildings of 7 storeys which belonged to the Chinese as were all the other commercial buildings. The pace of Government and commercial activity were leisurely and relaxed. All normally went home for lunch. Daylight hours were not fully utilised until our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad extended it on his first day in office. He said this was good for having leisure time to relax. No one complained.

    Kuala Lumpur town were divided into distinct areas for the different communities. The cool and green hills to the West for the British, areas adjoining Chinatown were for the Chinese, Kampong Baru which held the famous Saturday market was for the Malays. Special precincts were for the Malay Civil Servants around the Royal Selangor Golf Course and Kampong Pandan and Peel Road. Brickfields were mainly for the Indian community except for one or two lodging houses managed by the Hainanese.

    The Federal Police Headquarters was at Bukit Aman and the KL Police Contingent at High Street in the old Victoria Institution premises.

    Then suddenly 13 May 1969 erupted. The PDRM was caught short handed and its force stretched thin over huge areas at key points. Its radio communication was antiquated which even I could monitor police messages with my radio. The riot began at 5 pm from Prince’s Road (Jalan Putra) along TPCA and moved towards Batu Road ( Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman) By 5.30 pm all ths shops closed with people in panic. My sister was there. Then the population of Kuala Lumpur was 10 times smaller.

    By 8.30 pm the 5th Battalion Royal Malay Regiment moved in and bivouacked in the school field just across the road from my eldest brother’s house. Throughout their long stay, the soldiers were weil-behaved and disciplined.

    Gun shots were first heard at 8.30 pm around the Batu Road area 2 km from my house. An area which had no police security. 2 days later the DIGP despatched his Daimler limousine with a bodyguard and a Sten gun to send my family to the Federal Hill where I could not hear gunshots day and night.

    In 2019, Kuala Lumpur truly represents the capital of our beloved Malaysia with a good mix of all communities all round. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE PDRM TO PROVIDE THE FULLEST SECURITY EVERYWHERE WITH MIXED ETHNIC HOUSING EVERYWHERE. In 1969, the PDRM could just protect key points and installations.

    BUT THE FORTUNATE POINT TODAY IS THE MIXED DEVELOPMENT WHICH TOOK PLACE EVERYWHERE UNDER THE AEGIS OF THE NEP 1971-1990.

    And politics are unlike that of 1969 when all seemed wrong and inequitable. For example as follows :-

    In 1969

    1. The Policy of the Currency Board of Malaya, Singapore, Sarawak, Sabah and Brunei was practised under 2 Chinese Ministers of Finance who probably did not understand higher economics but only practised Confucian virtues like thrift. A country spends only what it earned. This produced illiquidity. The rich became richer, The poor became poorer. The British owned 70% of the best assets. The Chinese 25% of the third rate with a few tycoons. The Malays just 2%.

    My Malay and non-Malay graduate friends returned home to no benefits. There were no OD. No credit cards. No car loans, No housing loans. No business loans. etc. They were certainly angry that the citizens got nothing from Merdeka even 12 years of freedom.

    2. 1963-1965. Lee Kuan Yew and his PAP cohorts certainly put the fear of ‘MALAYSIA FOR MALAYSIANS’ in the hearts and minds of Malaysians. I attended his red hot ceramahs at Sulaiman Court now Sogo. I still remember why. In the Dewan Rakyat, Lee Kuan Yew with his usual bombast crossed swords with the up and coming political braves like our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. These episodes would have aroused unnecessary fears in the hearts and minds of most citizens. I was there.

    3. 1967 – The Penang riots against the imposition of Custom duties. There were deaths and injuries.

    4. 1969 – My advisers especially Tan Sri Dr C.C. Too the most Senior Chinese Adviser on Counter Insurgency Warfare to the Federal Government alerted me to the weakening political powers of the MCA., so did the UMNO Youth.

    5. 1969 – The Police accidentally shot a person. This gave rise to Left Wing and Opposition agitation. Until 1972, there was no restricted travel through the Causeway. Gangsters and bookies crossed freely.

    6. 1969. Opportunity for communist agitation was at its height on apparently fertile ground.

    7. 1969. (I) Internal Malaysian domestic politics.
    (ii) At 2.30 p.m. on that fateful day, the President of MCA withdrew MCA in a pique, out of the Alliance which gave the wrong impression that the incumbent Alliance senior partner had lost power in key states. By 10.00 pm that night, the MCA was back in the Alliance. This fatal mistake activated the tragedy and caused many innocent lives of all races. My brother-in-law was a specialist paediatrician at the KLGH at the material time.

    In 2019,

    1. IF OUR POLITICIANS CRY WOLF TO MANY TIMES AND IF THEY ARE NOT CAREFUL THE REAL BIG BAD WOLF WILL TURN UP ! We must remember such display of bravado can be fulfilling and not self-fulfilling !

    2. HOW TO BURN OR THROW STORNS IN ANY MALAYSIAN CITY THESE DAYS. ALL THE DEVELOPMENTS ARE MIXED.

    3. IN 1969, THE RIOTERS WERE FROM THE COUNTRYSIDE. IN 2019, THEY WOULD BE DRESSED IN CLEAN BLACK BRANDED T-SHIRTS WITH RM 50 IN THE POCKET OF THEIR BRANDED JEANS AND GAILY MUCHING A KFC AFTER LEAVING THEIR BRAND NEW YAMAHA AT A SAFE PLACE. The motivation is different. One was by want of necessities whilst the other is for the want of MONEY.

    How to riot with proper clothing, a full stomach, a nice motor vehicle, a buddy male or female and mum an dad just a phone call away ?

    TWIN PEAKS. THE RIOTS OF TODAY 2019 WILL COST BILLIONS OF RINGGITS UNLIKE IN 1969 WHEN THE MATCH TO LIGHT THE BONFIRE WAS FREE.

    And what about all those beautiful Mercedes, BMW and Audi motorcars mainly owned by Malay executives. And the mass crowds of mixed communities thronging the streets innocently.

    WTITH OUR MALAYSIAN STYLE DEMOCRACY AND AN INCUMBENT NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT IN POWER, THERE IS NO RAISON D’ETRE FOR ANYONE TO RIOT IN A MALAYSIAN STREET WITH LESS THAN RM 100-200 IN HIS BRANDED JEANS POCKET. A Malaysian riot will soon cost a lot of good MONEY unless crass interference by outsiders.

    HOWEVE PLEASE NOTE SINGAPORE GOT WHAT THEY DESIRED, THE ROCKS, ALL OF KTM, HSR ETC THE KIASU WAY WHICH WAS CHEAP PULICITY OF RED HOT RELATIONSHIPS AND VERY PRIVATE RETREATS BROADCAST FREE BY THE SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT’S BRAIN-WASHING NACHINE, THE MINISTRY OF INFORMATION, THE BEST AND BIGGEST IN THE WORLD PER CHINESE CAPITA OF 900,000 MALES AGED 21-50 !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Let true facts fight the fake news ! History is the finest arbiter of the Truth.

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENTS ON CAAM RECENTLY.

    How many Malaysians are aware that Singapore controlled the airspace of Malaysia up to Perlis from Singapore until 1972 ?

    Our Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak on the advice of the NOC took back our beloved Malaysia’s airspace which was controlled by a foreign power. Now Malaysia controls all of her airspace except for that tiny bit above Pasir Gudang , Johor which was only a rubber estate in 1972 !

    Likewise, the British Colonial Currency Board of Malaya, Singapore, Sarawak, North Borneo and Brunei, a British Colonial relic and a British template to control British Colonies was only dissolved in 1972 to permit the Bank Negara Malaysia to bloom and contribute to our National Development. I was there, This was the main factor in creating the fertile ground for the tragic riots of 13 May 1969. The other factors were all incidentals to the main plot.

    Also, it was under the 22 year Administration of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad that all the British owned Malaysian businesses were purchased at fair market prices unlike some African States which nationalised or took over by force.

    We the Rakyat should look upon all these achievements with pride and satisfaction which stand us in good-stead in the eyes of the World.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    Suddenly there is a fresh crop of headlines of varied importance which appeared this morning, thus:-

    1. ” GOVT TO BEAR RM 10.3B LOSSES IN TABUNG HAJI RESCUE PLAN. THE AMOUNT WILL BE EVEN HIGHER IF THE ASSETS VALUE DEPRECIATE FURTHER.”

    What a shameful description of a Trust Fund which I consider as one of utmost importance with the holiest connotation ! See the extent of the Corruption and Abuse of Power which had penetrated into such an important and holy sanctum which should have been overseen by the most respectable and honourable of men and not crooks.

    See how when the Head of a Government is corrupt which began at the Head, this putrefaction spreads downwards to the tail without exception.

    This horrible putrefaction had affected not only one Malay Trust but nearly all with money. And now, the incumbent New and Incorruptible Government has to bail them all.

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan. Even if this will take 100 years.

    2. (i) ” PM : WHY THE UNITED STATES DOWNGRADE THE CAAM. ”

    (ii) ” CAAM HAD INADEQUACIES. LOCAL STUDIES SHOW BODY BOGGED DOWN BY INEXPERIENCED STAFF. ”

    These headlines showed the CAAM has two sides of the proverbial coin.

    3. ” I AM NOT CAMPAIGNING FOR BARISAN, SAYS MAHATHIR. ”

    This headline clearly shows that the importance of the status and reputation of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is unbeatable and without peer.

    4. ” GAZETTE MANGROVES AS FOREST RESERVE. SAM URGES PENANG TO SAVE PENAGA, KEPALA BATAS AREAS AND NOT MAKE EMPTY VOWS.”

    The time for bluffology by Malaysian politicians is over like Singapore. As I have urged many times, the mangrove swamps of our beloved Malaysia’s coastal territory bear great potential for conservation for eco-tourism and food production. These are the areas where edible crabs, shrimps, octopus, fish abound for easy harvest. Malaysia should become the World’s leading light in this field of industry. We do it with the assistance of Japan which is the most advanced country in the World for this form of horti0culture. In fact in support of Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin’s brilliant proposal, it is timely to set up a separate Ministry of Food Production with also the responsibility of a FELDA-LTAT World Class food production unit – sort of Malaysian Nestle-Danone all rolled into one with British expertise.

    5. ” RAFIDAH. WHY STOP AT 30% ”

    Common sense dictates !

    One of our beloved Malaysia’s finest politicians speaks. YB Tan Sri has a World class mind-set and will serve our beloved Malaysia well if given the opportunity to be THE PRIME MINISTER. Where else but Malaysia ? Especially now our beloved Malaysia is one of 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia. We need World Class elite like YB Tan Sri to lead the Nation and given the chance at the right opportunity. Not only that Malaysia must build up her stock of Malay and non-Malay elite as postulated by our revered Consititution, the real ones and not a whole pack of plagiarists and fakes.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    It is very plain and clear as the blue sky that the newly found freedom of speech has already been abused the very minute is was given by a pro-democratic government. It does not look like Malaysians are ready or can handle their newly-found freedom of speech, yet. The Malays start insulting non-Malays and worse still, use Islam as their ally (!). Then the non-Malays start poking at the Malays for equal rights. These are not what freedom of speech is meant for. It is not meant to be used for attacking fellow citizens. Yes, you may organise malay or chinese dignity gatherings, to improve yourselves, Not to attack or make fun of other fellow citizens.

    Not even in the West are people allowed to do the sort of thing that is widely going on in Malaysia today.

    It is just incredible. Unbelievable.

  150. twinpeaks Nov 15,2019 12:43 PM

    Listening to some of the political campaign speeches in recent days leads me to believe and conclude that there is a very big, and I would definitely say, intractable and growing division between the Malays and non-Malays in this country. These vitriolic speeches disguised as dignity speeches are in essence a direct attack on fellow citizens. I cannot believe that this is still allowed in the twenty-first century, in modern-day Malaysia. If you are asking for a matchstick to start a fire, these public speeches are surely what you are looking for. It is easy to predict that one day, a small dignity walk-about in town will gather momentum into a nation-wide (except in the Borneo states where it does NOT have any impact at all, fortunately) violent inter-racial street battles. Public figures in both government and the opposition must be very careful about what they say in public. Mobs are hard to control once they are let loose. Sure, the army can be called upon to restore order and by that time Parliament will be suspended in all likelihood. Foreign investors will start emigrating one by one, and none will come back. It will set the country back fifty years. And it can forget about achieving a developed country status.

    The following shocking headlines appeared in both the front pages of two English language national newspapers today, thus

    1. ” REGULATOR DEFECTS. CEO TENDERED HIS RESIGNATION ON NOV 1.”

    2. ” RED FLAGS IGNORED. THE CIVIL AVIATION AUTHORITY OF MALAYSIA HAS DELLECTED BLAME BY SAYING THERE WAS AMBIGUITY IN THE DOWNGRADE. ”

    What a shame our beloved Malaysia has to go through with a rare downgrade by the United States FAA for neglecting the red flags over time !

    The symptoms of the failure of the CAAM were there with the loss of MH328 and MH17 which was not due to aircraft failure but other factors which had more to do with mismanagement by the authorities than anything else.

    Yes! The symptoms were the symptoms of Corruption and Abuse of Power through the governing System which reached down from the very top. – There was only the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs to take the blame for this neglect of a straightforward function yet a most important function for all concerned.

    When the MH17 was shot down over the Ukraine, the Minister was asked. He replied stupidly and with a total lack of responsibility,” No one ask us not to fly over there.” THIS WAS AT THE HEIGHT OF WAR IN UKRAINE WITH FIGHTER JETS AND ROCKETS IN BATTLE EVERY DAY.

    Yet there was a total lack of common sense by the Minister in command to instruct MAS not to fly over WAR ZONES! Just a phone call by his aide to MAS would have saved 200 innocent lives. Such was the extent of Corruption and Abuse of Power and a wanton neglect of duty and responsibility by the Minister and his cohorts – a due reflection of the Corruption and Abuse of Power which could be traced right to the top of the Power Pyramid.

    If the CAAM was affected, a mundane authority which is one of the many in the Government, NOW ONE WOULD EXPECT THAT MANY SUCH AGENCIES WERE AFFLICTED BY THE DIRE BEHAVIOUR OF THOSE MINISTERS WHICH OVERSAW THEM ! Agencies like SIRIM, etc.

    Just 14 years of rampant financial rape and abuse of Power not only robbed our beloved Malaysia of all her financial resources but also iconic institutions faced collapse due to the demoralization of its human digits who were exposed to immorality and illegality of the corrupt BN Leadership. This state of affairs pressured the staff at the leading edge to do likewise.

    Instead of focussing their minds to do their duty in the National Interest, the Ministers were distracted by matters not connected with matters of State. Hence, the Government which was painstakingly and carefully built up since 1957, was neglected and assumed a free wheeling stance to the horror of the cognoscenti.

    Our beloved Malaysia had reached the level of darkest Africa at our volition. What a shame for a country, our beloved Malaysia which was once the richest, well administered and endowed amongst all the 3rd World Emerging countries !

    As usual, no one has come forward and express regrets and remorse which blame should lie squarely on the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    The bombing out of the Morality and Duties of Civil Servants is clearly shown in the case of CAAM.

    To rebuild our beloved Malaysia again is a must for all.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem

    I like to present again that disgraceful and shameful headline in The Star thus

    ‘ WHAT SINGAPORE TEACHES US ABOUT SUCCESSION PLANNING. ‘

    First, The Star is associated with the Singapore Government since 2006 through the personal efforts of its Managing Director. The Star presents Singaporean news daily.

    Second, this headline underlines the fact that the writer is either a trouble-maker, naysayer, moron, fellow traveller, Martian from Mars, a crypto-Singaporean, detractor, a swallow. a duck, a treasonous Civil Servant etc.

    Third, most importantly, we Malaysians have nothing to learn from Singapore, we can teach them a thing or two because Singapore has only 900,000 Chinese males aged 21-50, divided into many clans. Malaysia has a population of 31 million.

    Fourth, the writer has no credibility and completely ignorant about the real Singapore because he does not even know that Singapore has the Lee Kuan Yew created Anti-Cambridge Godless Neo-communist Political and Socio-economic System bolstered by apparatchiks and the West.

    This authoritarian System was known to the West in the early 1970s which called it ‘benevolent authoritarian’ or ‘ capitalist authoritarian’ or ‘ rich Cuba without the bananas.’

    Fifth, The Star has a responsibility not to publish such anti-Malaysia rubbish designed to disrupt and create confusion in the ordinary Rakyat’s mind because the fact is our beloved Malaysia cannot be compared to tiny Singapore whilst Malaysia practises democracy. COMPARISON IS ODIOUS.

    See how this latest attempt to brainwash Malaysians is well off the mark. It might work in the 20th Century but no longer.

    To The Star, ‘Go home to Singapore where the grass is browner’.

    Here is an absurd headline that has to be put down in the National Interest for its negativity and inferiority complex which are contained in an article without any merit, thus

    ” WHAT SINGAPORE TEACHES US ABOUT SUCCESSION PLANNING. ” The Star which has a business relationship with the Singapore Government since 2006.

    This article tries to’ apple polish ‘the bland and text0book-minded Singapore Leadership which is incomparable with just three of our elite being Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin and Dato Seri Sharil Redza Ridzuan.

    Does the writer of this inferior article know how Lee Kuan Yew tried very hard to produce elite suitable to be at the top and failed ?

    Does the writer knows the attrition rate of these So-called Ivy League and Oxbridge specially chosen types of Singaporean scholars. ?

    First here is the procedure how Lee Kuan Yew worked to produce his very best for Singapore which he failed to do so.

    In the early 1970s, Lee Kuan Yew discovered Christ’s College, Cambridge is the best College in both Oxford and Cambridge. It’s annual output of 1st Class graduates command 90% of the graduates each year and for many years according to the Tompkins Table.

    With this information, Lee Kuan Yew specially arranged for a Singaporean Scholar to be parachuted into Christ’s College, Cambridge every year. This blocked any other applicant from Malaysia because the College authorities treated Singapore/Malaysia as one. It is still happening now.

    Lee Kuan Yew with such strenuous efforts to produce suitable successors educated at the Ivy League and Oxbridge could only come up with 3 Christ’s College, Cambridge from 1972 – 2015. being B.G. Yeo, Heng Swee Keat and Chan Chun Sing. What happened to the 20 – 30 Singaporean graduates of Christ’s, may I ask the writer ?

    Yeo, Heng and Chan were employed in the Singapore Government uniformed services as were about 50 other Singaporean Generals.

    Does the writer intend to tell us Malaysians that only graduates of Christ’s College, Cambridge are only suitable to be the Prime Minister of Malaysia ?

    Fortunately, we have one, Dato Seri Sharil Redza Ridzuan who Is far better with his charismatic demeanour than his fellow Christ’s men from Singapore.

    Now this writer conveniently left out the troupes of Singaporeans who went to the Ivy League and Oxbridge and failed to make the grade. He obviously have highly tinted specs on all the time.

    He did not mention that SINGAPORE’S MUCH FLAUNTED MERITOCRACY FAILED TO TAKE OFF THROUGHOUT LEE KUAN YEW’S RULE IN SINGAPORE. BY 2014, TWO MINISTERS COULD NOT BEAR THIS ANYMORE AND PRONOUNCED THAT IN FUTURE ALL APPLICANTS FOR JOBS OR PROMOTIONS IN THE SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT SERVICE WILL NOT ONLY BE CONSIDERED ON THEIR ACADEMIC MERITS BUT ALSO THEIR OTHER TALENTS.

    This Policy was repeated in 2018. In other words, the boys and girls who were parachuted into the Ivy League and Oxbridge by Lee Kuan Yew never made the grade set out for them by him. Meritocracy is dead in Singapore whilst this writer is NOT AWARE OF IT. Please only polish your Singaporean apples if deemed fit. It is embarrassing to read your ill-informed article WITH A SINGAPORE BIAS.

    Further, around 2010, a female Cambridge graduate stripped herself NUDE and pranced around Holland Village, Singapore with her equally NUDE Caucasian boy friend, one hot Saturday night. She was asked why she did it. Her replied was that she was bored at her job in Singapore. Good thing she was not a Minister or Prime Minister. The Singapore Government was dumbfounded and took no action.

    Also, the 1972 Two-Child Family Policy of Lee Kuan Yew did not produce any Singaporean geniuses but reduced the Chinese to only 900,000 males aged 21-50 which cannot fill a Shanghai precinct.

    There are myriads of stories about the failure of such graduates who succumbed in Singapore.

    MERITOCRACY IN SINGAPORE IS AS DEAD AS THE DODO BIRD OF MARITIUS.

    To the writer of this article with an inferiority complex vis-à-vis Singapore, the moment you opened your mouth, IT SHOWED !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. I do not understand why some ignorant Malaysians compare our beloved Malaysia with tiny Singapore with only 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-50. It is like comparing chalk and cheese. THE TIME FOR SINGAPOREAN BLUFFOLOGY WAS OVER A LONG TIME ! AGO. This one reason I said some Malaysians are like Martians from Mars or Rip Van Winkle. Acheh

    For my professional friend HBT456 who seemed to write good English all of a sudden. Has he or she got Gemini personality ? Here is my take of your professionalism, HBT456 Sorry for thinking you were a sacked sous chef from my friend Ong Beng Seng Concord Hotel with his Royal partners.

    Our beloved Malaysia now has the very best opportunity to become Great, Very Great under the Prime Ministership of our wise, brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side. Just look at the bland and text-book minded fellows in another country South !

    At this momentous moment, Tun should be steering this great ship our beloved Malaysia towards the likes of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan from our excellent position as one of the 4 very important small countries of the World being Britain, Switzerland, Japan and Malaysia since 8 May 2018. See what the crooks missed ?

    Man proposes. God disposes !

    Because opportunities like this do not come every day or any day for any country, it is time for all Rakyat to grasp the wheel of success and push forward in unity, in loyalty to our Yang Di Pertuan Agong, the Constitution, the Royal Sultans and the Country and most importantly, their families. This is the time. There is no other time better than this.

    If we the Rakyat have a pair of eyes, a brain, and two legs with two arms, they should realise that our beloved Malaysia is not only unique but one of the best, if not the best for human inhabitants to live and work in.

    Therefore only detractors, naysayers, trouble-makers, morons, Martians from Mars, crypto-Singaporeans, ducks, swallows, fellow travellers, treasonous Tan Sri Civil Servants, etc will attempt to obstruct this wonderful upward trek of our beloved Malaysia as led by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    FOR OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD THERE IS NO WAY THAT HE WILL BRING BACK HIS 1981-2003 MODEL. THIS TIME ROUND, THE 2018 MODEL IS THE FINAL AND IMPROVED VERSION OF HIS WILL WITHOUT THE CLOSEST AIDES OR TYCOONS.

    I respect the Tun when he said he realised his mistakes. HERE IS A MAN WHO IS SINCERE NORMAL AND HUMANE TO REALISE WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES. WITHOUT THIS REALISATION, WE AS NORMAL HUMANS CANNOT PROGRESS, LEAST OF ALL CONTRIBUTE TO THE NATION.

    See the crowd who stole money from the hapless and hard-working Rakyat who trusted and elected them, not a single expression of regret or remorse from them who smiled all the time without realising the grieve, sadness and tragedy which they have caused to the 31 million innocent souls of our beloved Nation – the sheer waste of precious time, space or human suffering.

    YOU ARE NO TROUBLE-MAKER HBT456 AS LONG AS YOU HAVE OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND HER WONDERFUL PEOPLE AT HEART. Be focused.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    I even took the trouble to interview a pakistan graduate who did some research papers under maxis 2 years ago, mubarakchan.

    I went through his resume, and i was confused why he can apply jobs in malaysia, and why maxis didnt take him.

    I asked him to show me his passport, and i saw the expiry date is near, so i asked him why he wants a job in malaysia.

    He said he loves malaysia and hope to get a job in here so that he can renew his passport.

    So, i asked him, is he married, he said he has a young and beautiful wife and baby at his home land.

    Then, i asked again, if under syariah law, pakistani men too are allowed to marry 4 wives, and he said yes.

    I thanked him for taking the trouble to come for the interview, and revert back him the decision on his exployment status.

    That is a clear no from the management, and myself because i know he can never be able to survive in this country.

    Am i a trouble maker, mubarakchan?

    The case of dsn is best to be trialed in an open court whereby everyone can see, and share too whether he should be jailed or not.

    It would be best not to delay the court case.

    To be or not to be, that is not the question.

    Able or not, we will know as we move on.

    For my friend HBT456. Unless that person is a troublemaker, detractor, naysayer, fellow traveller, Martian from Mars, a crypto-Singaporean, here are the cogent reasons why the ousted BN Government 2004-2018 was a Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    1. The Federal Government believed Malaysia owned the Pulau Batu Puteh since immemorial times. After the retirement of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, his successor rushed off to The Hague at great expense to establish that it belonged to Singapore. For his efforts, the Singaporean legal eagles published a book which insulted Malaysia to show how very clever they were.

    2. A one stop facility was established below the PMO known as the 4th Floor Boys who directed the quickest way for the famished Singaporeans looking for low hanging Malaysian fruits in the Khazanah. On the way there, they picked up The Avenue at no valuation.

    3. In 2005, a hard-core PAP cadre was installed as the Chief Editor of the UMNO owned true blue NSTP with a lush Sime Darby Comache contract between his thighs to teach Malaysians Singlish.

    4. It is alleged Peter S of FELDA Houdini fame, came into Malaysia via the Raffles Hotel boutique in 1986.

    5. By this time the 4th Floor Boys were tko’ed

    6. By 2009, Malaysia’s treasonous Civil Servants were involved in 19 ultra secret TPPA negotiations until exposure in 2015. The TPPA was Lee Kuan Yew ultimate weapon to colonize our beloved Malaysia like the British – only consume their manufactures or imports.

    7. 2010-2018. Singapore propaganda dished out words like red-hot relationships and very close retreats.

    8. With the close proximity, Malaysia’s KTM with its huge Singaporean assets lost all to Singapore for free. Malaysia ended up with 1/2 of a half-past six building in a second class location.

    9. To top off the creaming of Malaysian assets from Malaysians who were bad with maths, the HSR runs through 99% of Malaysia’s land whilst Singapore would up-grade her broken down Jurong Golf Course into a multi-billion dollar commercial complex. Not only that, any delay, Malaysia pays big bucks.

    10. Malaysia meekly accepted no crooked bridge for us which was actually Malaysia’s right !

    11. The 1MDB Singapore expose’ is self-explanatory which was actually highly lighted by the going-ons in Singapore by the stupid little fat boy of no merit.

    12. Sand, rocks, Kelantanese logs etc were free swinging to Singapore.

    HBT456. Our beloved Malaysia got nothing from Singapore.

  158. twinpeaks Nov 12,2019 11:01 AM

    It is very, very embarrassing to call one self a Malaysian when in Australia, two-third of Visa over-stayers are Malaysians.

    I sometime wonder that the only way for the country to become a developed country is to be Singapore 2.0. Mr Lee Kuan Yew had never trusted his own people, so why should we trust the average Malaysian mentality. Malaysians and Singaporeans are like brothers and sisters, culture-wise and business-wise.

    In truth, Singapore is a First World country economically but with people of a third world mentality. If they didn’t have strict laws to govern the daily lives of Singaporeans, and instead let loose like us Malaysians, then there will be pandemonium. Just like what happened to Malaysians in Australia.

    Embarrassing and disappointing.

    How many Malaysians realise that today is not the time for frivolous politicking of the Malaysian kind but a time for serious hard-work and unity to re-build our shattered and stolen wealth by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs ? By this financial rape and wanton vandalism of the corrupt BN Leadership, the wealth of the Rakyat has been reduced by 30%-40% from inflation, depreciation of the ringgit, high taxes, drop in land values etc.

    How many Malaysians realise that today is somewhat similar to the day after 13 May 1969 when all seemed hopeless. But thanks to our Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak and his Team, the NEP was formulated and the rest is history

    Similarly today because of your wisdom, brilliance and courage with DSAI and the Team by your side, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat has more than a second chance to rebuild our shattered country caused by the theft and vandalism of the elected BN Leaders whom the Rakyat trusted.

    And what your New and Incorruptible Government has brought us are as follows :-

    1. A New Good Governance.

    2. Malaysia has become one of 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia.

    3. Vision 2030 for the Rakyat.

    4. Reforms to up-date our antiquated Laws like the Trustees Act 1949, the Bankruptcy Act 1967 and the Companies Act 1965 etc.

    5. Reform to the Education Policy to prepare our young for the future.

    6. A responsive Foreign Policy as suitable to an important country astride the biggest choke-point of the World from the Andaman Sea to the South China Sea. Brexit will bring immense opportunities to our beloved Malaysia at the right time through the aegis of the New and Incorruptible Government.

    7. Focus on the well-being of the Rakyat with concomitant Policies as regards Tourism and the Hospitality business, the World wide halal trade, e-business, a Policy to refresh our coastal areas for eco-conservation and food production * vide Tun Dr Daim’s Comments ).

    8. The important Northern Region of Penang, Kedah, Perlis, Perak, Kelantan and Trengganu will be brought to bring out the best without huge loans or expensive reclamations of long gestation.

    9. Security and health issue are dealt with promptly and efficiently.

    10. The important Ministry of Finance now keeps a clean set of books. No more. No less.

    11. The re-building of the important Malay elite or cadre is a must because without Malay elite, the non-Malay elite cannot progress as stipulated in the revered Constitution.

    12. The New and Incorruptible Government under your Leadership with DSAI and the Team by your side must co-operate and work as though the incumbent Government will rule for the next 50 years.

    13. The task of recovering the billions of ringgit of stolen money has to be done even if this takes 100 years. No stone must be left unturned in the overall interests of the Rakyat who lost the most to these crooks.

    With each success of the New and Incorruptible Government, the naysayers, the detractors, the troublemakers, the morons, the Martians from Mars, the crypto-Singaporeans, camp followers etc will be silenced.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. We are all with you and in you we TRUST.

    May i ask, does mubarakchan feels being victimized by the political system that based on race quota which favored islam and malay first with men propsed, god disposed via petrol subsidies that had run for few decades?

    Puppet to singapore?

    You mean ttdi or bandar tun razak?

    Even when ministry produce a movie of tun razak and tun dr ismail, i wont watch even when it is offered free because it is about the struggles between 2 malay elites from pahang and johor to replace tunku abdul rahman, the founding father of malaya with social contract being institutionalized as monarchy constitution so that the power of state sultan are maintained, and unchallenged.

    Singapore pm realized the divisive communities and angst among them had taken place in hong kong that can happen to singapore, and singapore can be finished if they are not careful.

    Now i finally understand the impact of high icome nation with gst being pushed by dsn and his paid pr consultant and advicers.

    They wont make it even when they pushed for abolition of vernacular schools to save themselves first by calling themselves as malaysians, mubarakchan.

    Whatever the decision made by the court, there will be mixed reactions in 1mdb scandals which for sure will affect the voting pattern.

    There is no easy way out for both of the divides.

    P/s: abolishing vercular schools is more justifiable, or abolishing extreme malay and islam racist political parties is more justifiable? I am sure the insiders know better than all of us in here.

    My heartful wish from the federal government, is for an airport to be built in Keningau, so that there will be direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to Keningau, to serve the Interior of Sabah. This will bring direct benefits to the Interior youth and small businesses, as there is financial viability for the Interior hotel and resort industry to grow en masse. Thousands of jobs will be available for rural households not only in Keningau, but also the entire Interior region including Tambunan, Tenom and Pensiangan.
    It will be legacy to remember if Tun can make happen. For the people of Sabah’s Interior region.

    I am afraid, youth supporters of twinpeaks will get really really disappointed when tdm and his successor are unable to do so even when he is re-elected.

    There are 2 options you can choose as malay bumiputra mp, or wr.

    Be a good boy, that is like sibotak said, mp told you to sit you sit, and stop barking too.

    The 2nd option is continue to be pembodek to the mp, oops, i mean die hard supporter to the mp who can elevate your political career to the next level in sabah, or at federal level, janji jangan kasi beliau pening kepala, paham?

    When other people did well, they also want to do.

    The worst part is they just copy-paste tanpa pikir.

    Liberty to do as one pleases because you have majority supports from grassroots?

    Ada support from grassroot leaders, tapi government civil servants and voters at your constituency are not ready, then, you will be extremely dissappointed.

    Dont worry, twinpeaks, you are not the first wr, or mp to feel this way, you wont be the last too.

    On the suggestion of opening up Sabah for eco-tourism, I would suggest to also explore the region in Sabah where I was born. Keningau is the heart of the Interior of Sabah. But until today, it is still sadly neglected. There is no airport to speak of, but merely a small airfield covered with weeds. I takes at least 2 hours to drive up across the mountain range to get there from Kota Kinabalu. It has not been given any chance for industrial progress by past governments, but merely exploited for its timber and now sadly also lands grabbed by palm oil companies hiring foreigners. It has become a hotbed for opposition parties as a matter of silent protest. It has become a continuous target of money politics for corrupt political parties in government. The interior people are simple and humble, yet exploited by politicians. They have no independence to call their own.

    For tourism in Keningau is underrated but has huge potential. The vast mountain range of the Crocker National Park gives ready cool air respite from the steamy hot weather on the coast. It has clear water rivers and plenty of nature trekking possibilities. But is has no hotel investment until today, safe for a local 3-star hotel built by a local towkay, and a government-built hotel from the 1970s. That’s all there is.

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON SABAH & SARAWAK VIS-VIS FOSUN/BRITISH TOURISM.

    It is also profitable for Fosun of China to develop British holiday camps in Kota Kinabalu,Sandakan and Tawau in Sabah and Kuching, Sibu, the highlands and near the caves in Sarawak. The wealth of flora and fauna abounds in both places. Fosun already owns the Club Med group. They should know this holiday camp business well, not forgetting that these Europeans do not like to socialize with each other. They all keep to themselves.

    The future for our beloved Malaysia’s tourism with Fosun of China is indeed rewarding with a win-win situation for all under our New and Incorruptible Government’s baleful eyes.

    The tourist industry maybe quickly developed on the up-tick by experts like Fosun of China.

    ADDENDUM TO BRITAIN’S BREXIT VIS-A-VIS MALAYSIA AND ASEAN AND BEYOND.

    By a quirk of fate, the venerable Thomas Cook, the famous British travel agent’s brand name is now owned by the Fosun Group of China. I see a huge opportunity for the tourist industry here working with Fosun.

    The good Minister of Tourism and his team, even MAS and Air Asia and all our Malaysian travel agents now have the opportunity to market the wonders of eco-tourism in both Sabah and Sarawak to the Fosun Group using the Thomas Cook brand name. The gregarious British love to travel in large groups according to fixed schedules.

    I reckon Sarawak and Sabah can entertain up to 10,000 British tourist each in a day.

    It is time for the good YB Minister and his Team to lobby Fosun Group of China together with the vested interests of our Malaysian tourist agents and hotels. I will not complain if he flies off to China on this Fosun mission !

    PLEASE REMEMBER THE TOURIST AGENTS AND INDUSTRY MUST MAKE PROFITS (not the officials) UNLIKE UNDER THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE AND GLCs/SOEs WHEN THE LADY MINISTER WITH HER FAMILY HAD A PENCHANT TO VISIT FIRST WORLD COUNTRIES AND THE OTHER SNEAKED IN AND OUT OF THE COUNTRY AT THE RAKYATS’ EXPENSE.

    Let the good Minister of Tourism develop this new eco-tourist places of Sabah and Sarawak for the mass British tourist market in competition to less exotic places like Spain, Greece, Florida and the Caribbean. A day stay in KL, Penang or Singapore will be great for the British.

    PROFITS AND CHEAPNESS ARE A MUST FOR THE TRAVEL AGENTS AND THE BRITISH TOURISTS RESPECTIVELY. DEFINITELY NOT FOR OUR MINISTRY OF TOURISM
    OFFICIALS WHO HAVE OUR NATIONAL INTEREST AT HEART !

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    I am delighted that you are also closely following the BREXIT General Elections of the United Kingdom. It is an issue of Nationalism but not anything else. The competitive spending by Labour and Tories is a smoke-screen for the battle between Nationalism vs Liberalism. I hope BREXIT wins because of the many goodies which might come our way to stimulate and benefit our economy.

    Since the early 1980s, my college friend had been building business bridges between the UK and Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand when Malaysia adopted the policy of buy British last. That was a long time ago in politics.

    It is a new World now of fast changing business trends and ideas aided by the latest in technology in a transitional World of Giants and midgets. This is where our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will thrive best with his fine mind-set in such a World of topsy-turvy. Who dares wins. Per Ardua. Ad Astra.

    We in our beloved Malaysia are fortunate for Tun to lead us as the Prime Minister at this momentous moment. What am I talking about, you may ask ?

    It is the fantastic opportunity for Malaysia to link with the UK in all aspects of commerce and trade because of the fact that Malaysia is now one of 4 most important small countries in the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia since 9 May 2018.

    See what the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs, missed !

    First and foremost, I have been proposing the World Halal Food Trade for the FELDA/LTAT Group. This is a two way street as the business develops with British interest in a joint venture which links up with Australia and New Zealand as well. Excitingly, this Halal Food Export Group encompasses the old trading ground of the British, the Middle East which is an important footprint for this business.

    Second, it is a nice gesture in money terms if Britain uses as much as Malaysian palm oil as possible.

    Third, Dyson suddenly cancelled his electric car project in Singapore. Malaysia is the ideal place for such a project next to the Kulim International Airport at Kulim, Kedah. Our relevant authorities should woo Dyson as much as they could given such an important project.

    Fourth, Britain and its myriad of businesses and tech know-how is like a treasure box in terms of goodies for us.

    THIS IS NOW THE TIME TO BUILD OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AS AN EQUAL PARTNER FOR BRITAIN’S COMMERCE AND TRADE IN ASEAN AND EAST ASIA. It is time to activate the Malaysia-British Trade & Commerce Council based in KL and a branch in Penang with focus on Kedah/Kulim and the Northern Region of Kelantan, Trengganu, Perlis, Penang and Perak.

    Fifth, a most important development for all especially Singapore is for Singapore to confederate with UK on equal terms. This First and Best move will electrify the proceedings of talking with nothing for 35 years !

    Can the bland Singapore Leadership has the will, gumption, wisdom and courage like our wise, brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad before 9 May 2018 ? Who dares wins. Per Ardua. Ad Astra.

    Sixth, the benefits with a linkage between the United Kingdom/Malaysia/Singapore/ASEAN/East Asis are so manifold that I reckon that it is impossible to list them.

    Seventh, politically, Malaysia/ASEAN has a perfect balance with less interference with our national interests and independence.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. As you have rightly said that a week is a long time in Malaysian Politics. Acheh.

    Tun

    Your assessment of the performance of the New and Incorruptible Government over the course of 18 months revealed what the Cabinet members are made of. They have learnt fast and progressed to serve under your aegis. Hopefully, they also realised that it is a great privilege to serve as a Minister under your guidance. With this forum, our beloved Malaysia expects to do well sooner rather than later.

    The dilemma of our beloved Malaysia is the dire lack of Malay elite because after 3 generations of self-indulgence and self-immolation, only 3 are left being our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin and Dato Ser Sharil Redza Ridzuan from Christ’s College, Cambridge, with 2 aspirants, Dato Seri Azmin and SADDIQ. The thin red line !

    It is imperative for our beloved Malaysia to have hundreds if not thousands of Malay elite because the non-Malays cannot move forward with the absence of the Malay elite due to the precepts of our revered Constitution.

    The trouble makers have been having a field day with their ignorance of the Constitution.

    Furthermore, the dire lack of Malay elite exposed the wanton neglect by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2003-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs in furthering the cause of developments in all respects for the Rakyat – a period of 14 years of wanton neglect which time, space and money were given to financial rape and wanton vandalism of the Rakyat’s wealth. As a result, the Rakyat lost 30%-40% of their real wealth due to inflation, depreciation of the ringgit, fall in landed values due to a slow economy, high taxes etc.

    WITH YOUR LATEST ASSESSMENT OF GOOD GOVERNANCE, THIS IS ONE BRIGHT LIGHT IN THE HORIZON FOR THE RAKYAT OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA.

    And the prices of oil and palm oil seemed to perk up. Man proposes. God disposes.

    Tun,

    A most important headline appeared this morning thus

    1. ” PM: I WILL STEP DOWN AFTER I RESOLVE COUNTRY’S PROBLEMS ”

    And the following mischievous headlines to create trouble or to sell newspapers thus

    2. ” MALAYSIA’S MASTER TACTICIAN MAHATHIR KEEPS RIVALS IN SUSPENSE. PRIME MINISTER HEIGHTENS FEARS OF POLITICAL RISK BY DELAYING HIS DEPARTURE. ”

    Where is the political risk ? Until the elected BN Leadership 2004-2018 began to tore down the stable political structure of Malaysia by rampant financial rape and wanton vandalism of the Nation’s assets and monetary reserves, our beloved Malaysia was respected, governed with a firm and steady hand of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and in an environment of peace, harmony and prosperity – the Rakyat were happy and contented from 1957 – 2003.

    As soon as the Tun retired in October 2003, the Federal Government of Malaysia became an extension of the tiny isle of Singapore with its liaison office of the 4th Floor Boys immediately below the grand office of the Prime Minister.

    The 4th Floor Boys office was a one-stop counter for all famished Singaporeans to pluck at the low hanging fruits lining the Avenue on their way to the Malaysia Big Cheap Sale held at the Khazanah.

    To satisfy the Boss in Singapore, the Malaysian flunkeys rushed to The Hague to put in writing that the Malaysian over 200 years ownership of the rocks of Pulau Batu Puteh belonged to Singapore which did not exist then !

    To add further to enrich Singapore coffers, KTM huge land bank and rails were given to Singapore who garnered ALL which she so desired in exchange for a half office building in a second class location.

    The horror of horrors was the UN reported that a Malaysian nobody topped the UN Saddam Hussein Iraq Oil Sanction List with 1,000,000 barrels of oil ahead of all the other Government agencies of the World. At once, the World knew our beloved Malaysia has become CORRUPT.

    To top off the Singapore colonisation of our beloved Malaysia, a bloodless coup d’état was accomplished by appointing a hard core PAP cadre as the Chief Editor of the true blue UMNO owned NSTP with a lush Sime Darby Apache contract between his thighs ! At his point, Lee Kuan Yew was at the height of his powers in turning the BN Government Leadership into clowns of the first order.

    A sign of the times to the glee of Lee Kuan Yew were the pictures of important VVIPs falling asleep in the Dewan Rakyat due to jet lag or the wandering hand of a VVIP smoothing out the smooth back of a lady or turning the Perdana Menteri’s Istana into Hollywood with all the trimmings of wine, women and song. Decadence and orgy at the very top.

    ALL THESE DISGRACEFUL AND SUBSERVIENT ACTS WITH THE LOSS OF DIGNITY BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAPPENED IMMEDIATELY AFTER OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD RETIRED IN OCTOBER 2003 AND WITHOUT HIS IMPECCABLE LEADERSHIP.

    Not only that the second part of this disgraceful and comical performance of the corrupt BN Government 2004-2018 exercised CORRUPTION TO ITS VERY LIMITS WHICH INCLUDED SELLING OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AS A SLAVE COLONY TO TINY SINGAPORE VIA THE MALAYSIA/MALAYS/SME KILLER TPPA/CPTPP which was signed but not ratified. Lee Kuan Yew’s life-long dream achieved with the help of the BN Leadership and corrupted senior Malaysian Civil Servants.

    Man proposes. God disposes. The evil TPPA/CPTPP is yet to be ratified.

    THIS BUNGLING BY THE CORRUPT BN GOVERNMENT COST TINY SINGAPORE DEAR AND OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA STAYED ON COURSE WITH THE OUSTING OF THE CORRUPT COMICAL BN GOVERNEMNT ON 9 MAY 2018.

    The latter BN Government agreed to pay 99% of the HSR whilst tiny Singapore could ballooned a backyard golf course into a World class commercial complex worth billions of dollars nearly equal to the cost of the HSR. Stupid Malaysians. The HSR only benefits tiny Singapore. We had to compensate for any delay. Stupid.

    The World infamous 1MDB with its famous loss of dignity by Malaysians etc naturally followed. ALL THESE COMMITMENTS TOOK PLACE IN THE ABSENCE OF OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD’S LEADERSHIP.

    Our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad should know best that all the worms came out of the wood work after October 2003 and poured the finest vitriol on his Teflon character which fortunately could not be destroyed. A PRIME MINISTER IS BORN NOT MADE.

    FINALLY, THOSE DIGITS WHO HARANGUED FOR THE RETIREMENDT OF OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITHOUT ANY COGENT REASON ARE EITHER BLIND, DEAF OR DUMB, OR A MARTIAN FROM MARS OR A CRUPTO-SINGAPOREAN FROM TINY SINGAPORE BECAUSE THE HISTORICAL FACTS ARE SO STRONG IN SUPPORT WHAT OUR TUN HAS COMMENTED.” I STEP DOWN AFTER RESOLVING THE COUNTRY’S PROBLEMS Our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has always been humble and never boasted about his huge and many successes unlike Lee Kuan Yew. He is not a dictator but compassionate and helpful to millions of the disadvantaged from foreign to locals.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. In you we all Trust.

    Kelantanese also dont like you, mubarakchan.
    They are more than delighted to replace you.
    You hate singapore meaning you favor penang first?
    If i dont favor you, and just cast my vote to ah choo or ah kow, but not mubarakchan, what can you do? I dont want to use the ‘pariah’ to generalize your race, hence, dont drag singapore into your mind game assuming you are the best of the best?

    Tun

    Sometimes, the newspapers over-reached themselves with their self-confidence, thus in the Singapore Business Times with headlines which are contretemps to one another today :-

    1. ” SINGAPORE AND HONG KONG NOT A ZERO SUM GAME ON THE SAME PAGE ”

    2. ” DITCHING CORPORATE LIFE TO START ‘YOU TIAO’ BUSINESS ” – from the 1st World to the 4th ?

    First to compare Hong Kong with Singapore in 2019 is like comparing chalk and cheese. Hong Kong is China and backed by the World’s second largest economy. Hong Kong’s weakness is her lack of a political system to fill a void created by the British since 1898. As long as China exists, Hong Kong will exist.

    Second, Singapore became rich through the bombastic character of Lee Kuan Yew who was the right person in the right place at the right time ie, the Cold War 1948-1989.

    Singapore fulfilled the strategic geo-politics of Uncle Sam whom Lee Kuan Yew exploited to the full with those monopolistic questionable and unmentionable Cold War Trades blessed by Uncle Sam. That was the Cold War 1948-1989. With its passing, Uncle Sam produced his hegemonic spiel, “Globalization. Free Trade. Human Rights.’ which backfired on him with the success of the BRICS.

    Singapore got squeezed out of her Uncle Sam’s blessed profitable markets of the Cold War 1948-1989 as a middle man. The eternal warring parties of the World can now get credits, free delivery etc direct from those arms factories of the BRICS.

    Without a solid source of steady revenue, Singapore’s GDP fell to 2% by 2002 and did not breach 3% up to 2019. And she lost US$ 108 Billions of her Cold War garnered wealth in October 2008 on Wall Street.

    A Band-Aid replacement for the lost Cold War monopolistic trade, of Temasek, FTs imports, 2 casinos, and the Malaysia/Malays/SMEs Killer TPPA/CPTPP, to boost the GDP failed to take-off in replacement of the 2%-3% contribution of the Cold War trades – a GDP which was constant at a fizzy 7% GDP 1948-1990 with a tiny ex-colonial port employing Indian coolies.

    Singapore suffered Post-Cold War and again suffered in the present US-China Trade War.

    The cardinal mistake was Lee Kuan Yew who was very conventional and did not think out the options for Singapore’s future by investing in 4,000 tons of GOLD at US$ 300 per ounce before the year 2000.

    By 2008, instead of being just a knight in shining armour, Singapore would have become the King of the Hill with our beloved Malaysia in its little pocket whilst Singapore would have been up there with the United States, 7,000 tons, Germany 4,000 tons, France and Italy 3,000 tons, China and Russia 2,000 tons and India 1,000 tons. This golden opportunity is gone forever. Man proposes. God disposes.

    As Tun had exhorted us the Rakyat for so long that mind-sets based on English is important for progress and achievements. Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew inability to think out the options out of the box put paid to the dilemma of Singapore today.

    However, a fantastic opportunity has arisen for Singapore to confederate with the United Kingdom and settle the issue of its survival and sustainability once and for all.

    Has the Singapore Leadership got the gumption, wisdom, and the courage to take Singapore up to the heady heights of a Confederation ? Or the bland Leadership now saddled with a FAILED POLITICAL SOCIO-ECONOMIC MODEL BASED ON LEE KUAN YEW’S SHENANIGANS CARRIES ON REGARDLESS ?

    A good move by Singapore will be a good move by our beloved Malaysia in all aspects. It’s the 21st Century. The crunch point is now or never !

    Again, I am reminded by the diplomats, ‘ THE AMERICANS EASILY FORGET. THE BRITISH TRY NOT TO FORGET. THE FRENCH NEVER FORGET. THE CHINESE NEVER NEVER NEVER FORGET. THE MALAYSIANS FORGIVE AND FORGET. ‘

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem In you we all TRUST.

    Tun,

    A most important headline appeared this morning thus

    1. ” PM: I WILL STEP DOWN AFTER I RESOLVE COUNTRY’S PROBLEMS ”

    And the following mischievous headlines to create trouble or to sell newspapers thus

    2. ” MALAYSIA’S MASTER TACTICIAN MAHATHIR KEEPS RIVALS IN SUSPENSE. PRIME MINISTER HEIGHTENS FEARS OF POLITICAL RISK BY DELAYING HIS DEPARTURE. ”

    Where is the political risk ? Until the elected BN Leadership 2004-2018 began to tore down the stable political structure of Malaysia by rampant financial rape and wanton vandalism of the Nation’s assets and monetary reserves, our beloved Malaysia was respected, governed with a firm and steady hand of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and in an environment of peace, harmony and prosperity – the Rakyat were happy and contented from 1957 – 2003.

    As soon as the Tun retired in October 2003, the Federal Government of Malaysia became an extension of the tiny isle of Singapore with its liaison office of the 4th Floor Boys immediately below the grand office of the Prime Minister.

    The 4th Floor Boys office was a one-stop counter for all famished Singaporeans to pluck at the low hanging fruits lining the Avenue on their way to the Malaysia Big Cheap Sale held at the Khazanah.

  176. mubarakchan Nov 7,2019 12:05 AM

    Tun,

    The best headline today is, thus

    ” DR M; GRAFT COMMITTED OPENLY BY TOP LEADERS. CORRUPTION HAS ALMOST BECOME A LIFE-STYLE IN MALAYSIA. ”

    It is to be noted that the Lee Kuan Yew creation GLCs etc were used throughout to steal money off budget, from Sime Darby to 1MDB. Vide UN, World Bank and IMF Reports.

    From 2002-2018, over RM 1.5 Trillion was transferred overseas.

    In 2017-18, THE CEO OF IHH WAS PAID RM 100 MILLION WHICH WAS EQUAL TO THE TOTAL SALARIES OF 17 EXECUTIVES OF ARAMCO COMBINED OF US$ 23 MILLION -THE MOST PROFITABLE COMPANY IN THE WORLD. THE HUGE BOEING CORPORATION PAID ITS TOP CEO ONLY US$ 20 MILLION. IHH carries a debt of RM$ 4 Billion guaranteed by the Malaysian Government. IHH produces PROFITS BY MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS SHORT TERM. LONG TERM WILL EXPOSE ALL.

    I recall in the 1960s, no one at the top in Government and the Private Sector cared much about money. They were only absorbed in the day to day running of the affairs of their Ministries or their businesses.

    But it was alleged that two Ministers were caught in malfeasance, one padding a Government contract and the other had sticky fingers with to be listed public companies shares.

    The only instance of corruption concerned only the Town Planning Dept. Dewan Bandar Raya Kuala Lumpur. And whispers of how the KL District Officer passed vital information to an up and coming Chinese tycoon. Minor things concerning a slow moving economy under the policy of the Colonial Currency Board of Malaysia, Singapore, Sarawak, Sabah and Brunei. That was the 1960s.

    But with the BMF Scandal of 1982-1983, the ugly side of the effect of money on the political morals began to take root. This grew in monstrosity until the expose of an ordinary official who died loaded with RM 2 Billion assets ! But well before this, I noted that some young executives could be very well off with at least RM 10-RM 20 through mixing up with the right political master in the 1990s.

    But it was Sime Darby and its Malaysian executives who showed the way on how to do nothing but get maximum emoluments from the GLC which they operated. Sime Darby was the cow which provided the milk to be squeezed.

    Sime Darby went dry twice because of bankruptcies in 1996 and 2010 at RM 1.2 Billion and RM 2.1 Billion respectively. Crooked felonious Chinamen were involved in both instances and more. PNB was forced to bail out Sime Darby twice and became its majority shareholder !

    With the coming of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs, the corruption in Sime Darby was the 20th Century version of Malaysian Corruption. The 21st Century version knew no bounds and is now generally well-known throughout the World, the very highest member of the political hierarchy down to the lowest all not only had a bite of the cherry but they walloped all the cherry trees as well. This left our beloved Malaysia with no reserves, no income and no reputation to speak of.

    What a shame to have befallen our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat ! By the fact that we all were conned by some smooth talking silver tongue gents who worked on the emotions of the proletariat to get themselves elected – like our beloved Tun Dr Siti Hasmah drawing out the sweet melodious sounds out of her violin. Unlike that closest aide from Taiwan/Korea who garnered enough in KL to have a collection of Stradivarius violins at US$ 5 Million a piece. But he did not know how elicit a single note. Greed knows no bounds.

    Corruption before Merdeka was limited to minor local Government officials like the Assistant Comptroller of Estate Duty who pocketed Straits Dollars 5,000 wrapped in a Straits Times or those wandering health inspectors of Pasar Road Market and Pudu who pocketed enough to send their children to study in England soon after World War 2. Likewise, the Government rice storekeepers had a field day in the same activity as well. Or a KL Town planner could create commercial buildings out of road reserves in Jalan Sultan Ismail (Treacher Road) or Jalan Tun Perak (Mountbatten Road) Kuala Lumpur.

    I expected some diminishing of standards, ethics, propriety, honesty, morals etc as our beloved Malaysia progressed along the decades.

    Who would expect the ruling clique 2004-2018 to bring darkest Africa to our beloved Malaysia within a space of 14 years and WILLINGLY BECOME A SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 as soon as our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad retired in October 2003.

    It was absolutely astonishing to read the UN Report on Oil Sanctions applied on Saddam Hussein’s Iraq and find a Malaysian nobody heading the list with 1,000,000 barrels of sanctioned Iraqi oil. Or to find a hard-core PAP cadre sitting in the UMNO owned NSTP Chief Editor’s chair with a lush Sime Darby Apache contract between his legs. So on and so forth until every deal big and small was corrupt by 8 May 2018. Like our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad commented, ‘ CORRUPTION BECAME A LIFE-STYLE IN MALAYSIA BY 2018.’

    CORRUPTION WILL KILL OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND HER RAKYAT WITHOUT ANY DOUBT.

    Our fortunate location in ASEAN and the World at large, our wonderful peoples from different ancient civilizations, our plentiful natural resources and our greatest potential to be like Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India, Good governance Japan will surely be destroyed forever by CORRUPTION.

    To quote Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin, ” We Malaysians must work together for progress. ” This is also engraved in our revered Constitution.

    With the incumbent New and Incorruptible Government of the Old and the Young, the Good and the Great, we have every opportunity to become great and wealthy again.

    ” CATCH THE CROOKS. CHARGE THEM IN COURT. 10 STROKES OF THE ROTAN.”

    Do not let the crooks get away by stealing the Rakyat’s hard-earned money 3 generations of money from 1957 and their hard work to build up present day beloved Malaysia, through sweat, toil and tears !

    Do not permit a handful of crooks to destroy a Nation of 31 million. Let justice prevail and catch the crooks even if this takes 100 years.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. WITHOUT WIPING OUT THE GLCs/SOEs, CORRUPTION WILL SURELY RETURN WITH A VENGEANCE. There is no doubt about this because there are NO MEANS TO CONTROL GLCs etc. Let the Private Sector take them over and the risks too.

    I dont feel surprise, in fact it is within my expectation, kan kita pun ada kaum india di malaysia, betul tak?

    What is the response of mic and myppp for such exist?

    Whether we like it or not, when north korea has signed mou with south korea to unite without time frame witnessed by trump junior in singapore, 1 country, 2 political systems are here to stay for many years to come whereby north korea is under 1 party system, and south korea is under multiple party systems.

    So, pandai you all buat andaian sendiri masing2.

    Same applies to other states too.

    In here, i am thankful for tdm in planting seed at frim rubber research institute, and i hope the thick forest in this constituency of kuala lumpur is preserved for many generations to come so that mps cannot abuse their power when get elected to BOTAKkan sesuka hati the forest in favor of property developers to rich themselves first.

    Property developers too need to support such initiatives for their future sustainibility too before its too late.

    Also, this gesture of tdm can serve as new national green awareness campaign for other states as well to prevent sinking kl and other capital cities in other states as well by 2050.

    When president trump decided to pull out from paris climate change pack, it wont affect usa economy since the american businesses, consultantcy and technology are well established and connected in world market too.

    Why?

    Diversification strategy, that is never put all eggs in 1 basket.

    Can president trump wins out in 2020 to make america safe again?

    I think he will win out since the american politicians know where they stand strong more than anyone of us in here.

    P/s: the bottom line in here is can tdm command another cycle of majority votes similar to year 2000 whereby he delayed general election for almost 2 years due to anwar factor? I think he wont be able to do that this time, but can anwar replace him since conservative umno members cannot tolerate him? I personally think our political parties are still stuck in dulu punya mindset whereby they cannot tolerate among themselves even within same political parties, and still rely on race based politics to manipulate the sentiment of the voters in their constituencies to favor themselves.

    Malaysians in general do not ask questions in classrooms or public dari dulu hingga sekarang. Is it bad? When i did my tertiary education in foreign country, i got annoyed by the local students for asking too many questions in the lecture hall as if they are showing off, wasting the time of other students, and i am not sure have they changed or not.

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENTS ON PENANG AND THE NEW PROPOSALS
    The historical basis for my Proposals are based on the fact that Kedah and Pulau Pinang was one and the same before the arrival of the British in 1779.
    Geographically, Pulau Pinang serves as a choke-point to Kedah which is dependent of the easy of access connected with the Island.
    Therefore, it is practical and expedient to match the 2 entities again by the establishment of the Joint Penang-Kedah Development Council for mutual socio-economic benefits giving rise to the dictum, the sum of the parts is greater than the whole.
    The New Proposals are excellent and good for the 2 State Governments politically and socio-economically.
    Time is of the essence.
    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem

    Are kedahan and penang island mps, wr and their people afford to go for another cycle of mega infrastructure plus property developments? Dulu tak boleh, kini lagi tak boleh. Why? Are you ready for BN, the answer was given in past election. When ph ask this again, are you ready for PH, i am afraid, sir, the answer is still not ready yet.

    After watching anger, frustration and anger launched by anti-dap dap leaders in facebook, it makes no different who can sell better too.

    When nambikei is added in, it makes the situation lagi worst, why? India is not ready or shake up yet for major international and domestic policy shifts due to vote counts.

    Just dont over estimate the capabilty of cm, mp and wr, they aint saints, they are just like us earning for decent living. The only slight difference is they rely on national budget to earn living.

    You not only confirmed you are crazy but mad. Completely insane and deserved to be locked up and barred from all media for causing disturbance of the peace. I do not understand why some people tolerate you mad Hainanese who constantly picked on me to make fun of. Hainanese idiot. What order are you in your family of 12 siblings ? Hainanese have large families of which a few are rotten eggs and have to be kept at home due to their incestuous past.

    Just to remind who you are, a Hainanese who attacked me without any provocation, the well-known Chinese ditty known by Chinese the World over including China. thus

    Finally a headline from Penang has appeared which seemed to point in the right direction for her future development at minimum cost with maximum returns. And another headline which fully expressed the wished of the under-privileged Rakyat which the Penang State Government must care for.

    You mean the maximum return is bloated and projected to a level that seems impossible just because BoA of mubarakchan said so?

    Malaysian indians like to give many excuses.
    Malaysian Chinese afraid of no business.
    Malaysian Malay afraid of no corruptor.

    At last a country has accused Singapore of being a copy-cat, thus

    ” SINGAPORE AIRPORT CEO DENIES JEWEL CHANGI RIPPED OFF QATAR ”

    The Singapore Straits times reported that Qatar Airways chief operating officer Akbar Al Baker speaking at the unveiling of expansion plans for Hamad International Airport in Doha last month said its designs have been copied by another country. Akbar intentionally declined to name the alleged perpetrator, but it was obvious he was referring to Changi’s Jewel complex, the newspaper said.

    Singapore had always taken the practical and short-cut way to improve her infra-structural facilities. For example, Singapore’s education complex which is focussed on technology maybe a mirror image of India’s, Switzerland’s or Japan’s.

    It was alleged at the beginning of Singapore’s independence, Lee Kuan Yew attempted to adopt Swiss cantons into the different districts of Singapore like turning Ang Mo Kio into a Canton of Valais. He was forced to give up when he discovered that Singapore could only be just squeezed into a Swiss lake. The lake was Lake Geneva.

    The lack of human resources in a tiny place with only 900,000 adult male Chinese aged 21-50 added on to the difficulty of producing Innovation, Vision and Creation.

    Hence the future of our beloved Malaysia is assured if the New and Incorruptible Government puts its education policies right for the benefit of the future generations.

    Finally a headline from Penang has appeared which seemed to point in the right direction for her future development at minimum cost with maximum returns. And another headline which fully expressed the wished of the under-privileged Rakyat which the Penang State Government must care for.

    1. ” PENANG GOVT OPEN TO PROPOSAL FOR NEW AIRPORT. CM. PLANS IF ANY, STILL IN THE INITIAL STAGE. ”

    2. ” ONE ISLAND IS ENOUGH. SEVERAL HUNDRED RALLY AGAINST RECLAMATION PROJECT. ”

    There is now a glimmer of hope that the Penang State Government is coming round to face the Truth. The Truth in creating Wealth out of its own resources, jobs as a result, and making billions of ringgits more without unbearable loans to turn Penang into the World’s Best Resort and Holiday Destination. And with a down to earth attitude, more Wealth and prospects for Penang will come.

    I repeat again the New Proposals for Penang at minimum cost and maximum monetary returns to benefit the Rakyat, the State Government and its supporters quickly and cheaply.

    1. Scrap the 3 Islands Reclamation. Full of risks over a long period.

    2. Scrap the Bayan Lepas Airport. Turn this and the environs into the World’s Best City, the new George Town.

    3. New George Town encompasses up to Sungei Kelang in the North, the foothills for affordable housing to the West, the finest beachfront to the South. To the East, flatten Pulau Jerejak for a luxury liner terminal and a small domestic airport. New George Town will have as many 50 – 100 storey buildings as possible which is well-planned by a renowned World class architect. The State Secretariat, State Assembly and the Governor’s and Chief Minister’s mansions etc are all sited here. A very modern cosmopolitan city in all aspects.

    4. Scrap the Tunnel.

    5. Scrap the Highway and replace with a Japanese style country rail vide. CNA Saturdays 7 pm – 8 pm. Japan Hour. This rail connects Tanjong Bungah via the New George Town to Kulim, Butterworth and Sungei Patani.

    6. Scrap the Quit Rent and Assessment for Old George Town.

    7. Turn Old George Town into a partially pedestrianized town with the introduction of trams and bicycles.

    8. Turn KOMTAR into a 4 Star Hotel and a Budget Hotel.

    9. Upgrade the 19th century sewerage system of Old George Town with no expenses spared.

    10. Consider using the underground spaces around Old George Town and the Race Course for car-parks or the sewerage system.

    11. Flood mitigation is a must and be resolved once and for all. This is not to be done by bits and pieces.

    12. A huge affordable housing complex to the west of the New George Town.

    13. A fast train service from the New George Town to the Kulim International Airport.

    12. A Highway links the New George Town to the Kulim International Airport.

    13. The Southern portion of the island to be turned into a beach with white sand. The inhabitants of the area given top jobs in hotels or the tourist industry together with their existing fishing occupation as part-time. Their incomes will bounce sky high. No cash hand-outs because these are not sustainable.

    14. Turn the Butterworth Air Base into another New George Town II for middle income and working folk with affordable housing and industry. The Base can move to Kulim. More billions of ringgits released for the State Government like from the New George Town I.

    15. Re-invent the Penang Ferry with services to Lumut, Telok Anson, Langkawi, Kedah and Perlis. Open up the coastal areas of Northern Perak to Perlis.

    16. The ex-promoters of the 3 Islands given a bite of the cherry at New George Towns I & II !

    17. ESTABLISH A JOINT PENANG AND KEDAH DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL FOR EASE OF DEVELOPMENTS AND ALSO FOR JOINT FUNDING FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

    18. Upgrade the famous Botanic Gardens and expand it. Because with the proper allotment of priorities to create money at no cost, improving the Gardens is a must to World Class to compete with Singapore and others.

    19. A World class aquarium in the New George Town.

    20. A marina at Pulau Jerejak.

    21. Conserve the Penang Hills and forest areas of the Island. Leave some areas in their original entirety.

    All the above-mentioned Proposals could be achieved at minimum cost with maximum returns.

    THE NORTHERN REGION WILL BOOM AND BLOOM WITH PENANG, KEDAH, PERLIS, NORTHERN PERAK, KELANTAN AND TRENGGANU. The fall-out will benefit the whole country to Sabah and Sarawak. If the Isthmus of Kra Canal comes about, the wealth and jobs for Malaysians and the ASEAN countries will know no bounds. Luxury liners and airlines will zero in to this new and prosperous Region.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem Hopefully, the mind-sets of the Penang State Government see the huge benefits just by shifting the assets to the right places – the Creation of Wealth from existing sources without LOANS.

    Tun,

    The headlines which appeared this morning are to be expected within the present context of World events in trade conflict as engaged by the US and China. As both the World Bank and the IMF have predicted there is a down-turn bias for World trade this year and the next.

    1. ” Malaysia suffers sharpest export decline in three years. ”

    There is nothing to fear about this as our beloved Malaysia is now governed by a Government which is capable of handling crises together with a clean set of books at the Ministry of Finance. What goes up must come down as the saying goes. We all wonder what happened to the steep hikes of the price of petroleum between 2004-2018. To where did all the money go to ?

    2. ” RINGGIT HITS 16-WEEK HIGH AGAINST US DOLLAR.”

    This is a good indicator of the growing strength and diminishing corruption of the Malaysian economy managed by the New and Incorruptible Government. At times like this, a hard ringgit is not conducive to making our exports competitive. A fine balance has to be found as a basis for a stable equation.

    3. ” FOREIGN BUYING SHRINKS TO RM55.2M – MIDF RESEARCH ”

    THE BURSA IS NOW PAYING THE PRICE CAUSED BY MANY FACTORS i) THERE ARE TOO MANY CROOKS MANIPULATING THE SHARES. ii) THE EXPOSE’ OF MORAL TURPITUDE OF COMPANY DIRECTORS iii) POLITICAL FACTORS BOTH DOMESTIC AND EXTERNAL iv) A SLOWING ECONOMY AS EXPECTED WORLD WIDE. v) WELL-KNOWN CORRUPTION AND ABUSE OF MINORITIES RIGHTS A RESULT OF CONSPIRACY BY THE CONTROLLING DIRECTORS AND SHARE-RIGGERS SHOULD BE CHARGED BY THE MACC WITHOUT DELAY.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

  186. mubarakchan Nov 5,2019 1:02 AM

    Tun

    Within the context of World events, a person who is critical of our incumbent New and Incorruptible Government as led by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side, must either be blind, deaf or dumb or a Martian from Mars or a Singaporean from Singapore !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

  187. mubarakchan Nov 4,2019 6:43 PM

    Tun

    I am inspired today by the many demonstrations around the cities of the World by the thousands of unhappy protestors.

    Wherever I turned to with my TV, the news channels showed vivid images of hapless and defenceless people being knocked or knuckled down to the ground by the authorities dressed in full battle-gear.

    Wbhat are these protestors demonstrating for ? All against the same misdemeanours of the heads of governments eg. the abuse of Power and Corruption.

    In our beloved Malaysia, we too had our share of demonstrations by those dressed in black, red and yellow not too long ago. Fortunately, no lives were lost and our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat had a happy ending. Thanks to the wisdom, brilliance and courage of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side which ousted the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOE since 9 May 2018.

    Overnight our beloved Malaysia became one of the four most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia. Now it is the job of all Rakyat to make this new status stick !

    And here is an incomplete list of unhappy protesters demonstrating in their thousands around the Globe.
    t
    1. Baghdad Iraq. There is no reason whatsoever for one of the richest oil producing countries of the World to be poor with her citizens protesting against corruption and no standard of living.

    2. Beirut Lebanon. One of the best countries in the Mediterranean before her civil strife created by external forces. Now, thousands demonstrate in the streets against the Government of a Prime Minister whose father made billions of US dollars from the ruins of the civil strife. Again it is about Corruption and a low standard of living.

    3. Cairo, Egypt. An attempt was made to demonstrate against the incumbent Government in Tahir Square which was quickly put down with force.

    4. Tunis, Tunisia. Thousands demonstrated to oust the long serving President who was blamed for corruption and incompetence.

    5. Khartoum, Sudan – Civilian demonstrators against the military regime for ousting another longstanding President.

    6. Hong Kong, China – A weak Chief Executive who sided with the multi-billionaires for fear of damaging the Hong Kong economy. She permitted matters to drift from day one when she should have arrested 5,000 – 10,000 protestors. On the second day, she should have shown strength by a mass march of the Hong Kong Police and PRC militia through Central. That would have been 4 months ago. But instead, the confidence of Hong Kong as a bulwark of laissez-faire business practices is now in ruins. How to build up a political structure when there was never one in the firs place since 1899 ? Again Hong Kong is a case of Corruption and a mis-use of Power. She did not know how to use Power.

    7. Quito Ecuador – Demonstrations by the thousands against corruption and a low standard of living.

    8. Bolivia – The President wants to do a 5th term with the protestors demanding otherwise.

    9. Caracas, Venezuela. In this oil producing country, today nearly all are poor. In 1951, I met the son of the Venezuelan Ambassador to the Court of St James, London. He looked rich and dressed rich.

    10 Port Au Prince, Haiti. After many disastrous natural events, Haiti is down on her knees. She exists with UN support. The citizens demonstrate to oust a corrupt President.

    11. Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. The Brazilian rose up against a newly elected President after his successors were corrupt and abused power.

    12. Santiago, Chile. In this richest South American country, the protestors want a low cost of living, no corruption and jobs.

    13. Buenos Aires, Argentina. Before World War 2, Argentina was the supplier of meat and grain to Europe and was the 7th richest in the World with gold in her vaults. With the coming of the Perons and their Populist policy, all the wealth disappeared and replaced by hyperinflation.

    14. Paris France. This country is famous for its itinerant tax inspectors. Ask any Chinese restaurant for the low-down. The yellow shirts have been rioting in Paris and other cities for months against whatever negativity they could think of.

    15. London United Kingdom. Not even the Mother of Parliaments is spared from Corruption and Abuse of Power as the BREXIT adventure revealed. Thousands would demonstrate in the streets of London on NHS, doctors, teachers etc.

    16. Barcelona Spain. Even in a top tier country, its citizens demonstrated in their thousands to exit. Again the Corruption and abuse of Power.

    17. Moscow, Russia. Young Russians dressed in T-shirts are seen to be wrestled to the ground and arrested amongst the maddening crowd.

    Tun, in this quiet and placid corner of our Globe, it is good, very good that we now have the time and space to rebuild our financial strength which will provide the glue for our Unity to progress forwards successfully.

    WE THE RAKYAT ARE FORTUNATE TO HAVE YOUR WISE, BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS LEADERSHIP WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY YOUR SIDE TO LEAD OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO NORMAL AND HIGHER LEVELS OF ENDEAVOUR.

    Let it be known to all, that our beloved Malaysia this time round was fortunate to survive the financial rape and vandalism by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs. THERE WILL BE NO NEXT TIME ROUND BECAUSE WE ARE ALREADY SCRATCHING THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. In you we all TRUST.

  188. mubarakchan Nov 3,2019 9:07 PM

    Tun,

    For TWIN PEAKS. I agree with your excellent discourse on our beloved Malaysia. I cannot agree with you more. Here is my summary of a great and wonderful future for our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat, thus.

    1. OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IS NOW ONE OF THE FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD SINCE 9 MAY 2018. THANKS TO THE WISDOM, BRILLIANCE AND COURAGE OF OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY HIS SIDE.

    2. OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA ALWAYS REQUIRE PROVEN LEADERS LIKE THE TUNKU, TUN ABDUL RAZAK, TUN HUSSEIN ONN AND TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD. THEY ARE SPECIAL. THEY WERE BORN AND NOT MADE.

    3. OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S RAKYAT MUST UNDERSTAND THE HISTORY OF MALAYSIA AND THE HISTORIES OF VISIONARY SWITZERLAND, DEMOCRATIC INDIA, AND GOOD GOVERNANCE JAPAN. Switzerland confederated 800 years ago and yet her citizens, the Germans, the French, the Italians and the Romansch still make snide remarks at each behind their backs.

    4. OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM MUST BE FREE FROM POLITICAL INTERFERENCE BUT WITH THE VIEW FOR THE YOUNG IN FUTURE YEARS TO ACHIEVE THE BEST FOR THEMSELVES AND OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA. Languages are to be loved and cherished, not alien to Malaysians. A good command of languages will bring the rice bowl home. It is easy to learn a language when young. I used to study Bahasa Melayu, Mandarin, English, classical Cantonese, Urdu, Hindi, Latin. I can read menus in German, French and Italian.

    5. OUR VERNACULAR SCHOOLS SHOULD BE GIVEN TIME AND SPACE TO CONTRIBUTE USEFULLY TO OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA. THE INTERESTS OF THE SCHOOL TEACHERS, STUDENTS, GRADUATES, CHINESE MEDIA, THE CHINESE ETC SHOULD BE PROTECTED OVER TIME. IN FACT, THIS MATTER SHOULD HAVE BEEN RESOLVED AT MERDEKA BY GIVING A TIME PERIOD OF 50 YEARS FROM 1957. WE MISSED THAT ONE. WE THEN START WITH A FRESH SLATE. NO PROBLEM. IT’S THE CULTURAL AND SOCIO-ECONOMIC ASPECTS WITHOUT POLITICS WHICH HOLD SWAY.

    6. UNITY FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IS NOT A ROBOT. MANY VARIABLES AND INTANGIBLE FACTORS COME INTO PLAY LIKE A GOOD PRIME MINISTER, JUST AND FAIR GOVERNMENT POLICIES WHICH TEMPER THE DESIRES OF THE MAJORITY AGAINST THE MINORITIES, ETC.

    Malaysia’s 3 Generations of Malay elite disappeared in the wash due to self-indulgence and self-immolation leaving behind our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin, Dato Seri Sharil Redza Ridzuan and prospective elite Dato Azmin and SADDIQ. In our beloved Malaysia, the non-Malay elite cannot move without the Malay elite under the revered Constitution.

    TWIN PEAKS. ALL THE INGREDIENTS OF A GREAT NATION ARE THERE. WHAT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA REQUIRES IS A SUCCESSION OF HONEST, NORMAL-WORKING AND COMPASSIONATE PRIME MINISTERS TO COME WHO ARE RESPECTED BY ALL THE RAKYAT. IT’S NOT THE SYSTEM. IT’S THE DIGITS.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem A PRIME MINISTER IS BORN NOT MADE ! Acheh !

  189. twinpeaks Nov 3,2019 4:50 PM

    It is important for the different races in the country to be courteous to one another, not simply to maintain inter-racial harmony, but because it is not proper, in my opinion, to advise another race on what they should or should not do. UNLESS, like Tun who is an ethnic Malay, sees it his duty as a responsible father figure in his community, to crititicize and advise his fellow Malays on how they should lead their lives. I myself was brought up to understand that, unless one has gone through a similar journey as the person that one wants to advise, it is better not to advise unless one is requested to advise, by that other person. Even then, there are rules on how one should go about advising another person who is not from one’s own race or family. It is better not to say something that can be taken as offensive. Period.

    Having said that, I would like to say one thing about how the country should chart its future. This is to do with the identification of success and failure with race. It seems to me that, since the beginning of the federation of Malay states during the colonial era until the federation of a greater territory to include British Borneo and Singapore in the post-colonial era, the old British colonial administrative policy of compartmentalization of the various races have continued until today. From the very young, the country practises vernacular education, a system that was invented by British advisors in colonial Malaya and Borneo with the intention of keeping a disunity of the various Asian races in Malaya. Hence, Chinese and Indian children will feel very distant from Malay children. Whereas middle-class and upper-class Malays educated in the English-medium schools (in Malaya and in England, respectively) will feel distant from the rural Malays who most probably will at best attend religious schools. Such a policy was necessary as colonial admintration became manageable under such a divide and rule environment.

    However, in the post-colonial era, there is no need and indeed impractical to continue with vernacular education. Keeping the various races apart will make them grow distant from each other, and in such environment, successes and failures will inevitably be identified with the ethnic backgrounds of these fortunate and unfortunate persons. When a great number of a particular race end up as economically behind another race, then inevitably, the government of the day which is also from the racially-identified pecking order of a coalition of parties such as UMNO-led BN, or Bersatu-led PH, or for that matter a Malay-led PKR, WILL favour a policy of positive discrimination against the minority but economically-advanced race. This is the essence of the New Economic Policy and other subsequent policies after it, only disguised with different names. The objective is the same, and that is to provide an advantage to the economically-failed race.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with such a policy, as it is very proper for a responsible government to ensure that all have the chance to ‘make it’ in the country, financially. However, basing an affirmative action policy on race, carries a lot of risk for the country, not only for the target race but also for the unity of the country and its ability to become a genuinely great, happy country. For race cannot be changed, as one’s own DNA and value system is almost a permanent thing. I have not heard of a race that suddenly changed to become a super race overnight. If it has not happen in the last thousand years, then it will not happen in the next thousand years. Individual families can change generation-wise, whether Chinese or Malay. But not a big thing like race. Thus, identifying race as the basis for an affirmative action policy, will risk it being a permanent thing. Forever.

    On the other hand, if the various races in this country are genuinely united as Malaysians, and not identifying themeselves as Malay, Chinese or Indians, then sooner or later, intermarriages will occur frequently, and the identication with race will dissappear eventually. By that time, everyone in this country will only be known as Malaysian. This has happened in Sabah, my home state, especially among the Chinese. There is certainly less identification with their race, but simply as a Sabahan. The same goes with all the other ethnic groups, the Kadazans, Muruts, Bajaus et cetera. This is the reason racial politics is a slippery thing in Sabah, unlike here, as the average Sabahan does not identify himself or herself as a Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Kadazan, Bajau, Suluk or Chinese. The Sabah political landscape is very unpredicatable, unlike on the Peninsula. One day, a Muslim-led party (e.g. Berjaya) can win, the next day, a Christian-led party (e.g. PBS) will win. Then another day, a minority-led party (e.g. Warisan) will win.

    Affirmative actions should ideally be based on regional basis, as when the target regions have begun to prosper, then the policy can be relaxed and moved elsewhere. In doing so, it will not create resentments by others as the policy is not permanent, but only temporary. However, as things currently stand in the country, affirmative action policy based on race is still the only way.

  190. mubarakchan Nov 3,2019 3:26 PM

    Tun,

    KUDOS to the New and Incorruptible Government as led by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side which consists of the old and the young, the good and the great for the following excellent headlines, thus

    1. ” AGONG GRACES MALAYSIA FAIR 2019 IN TOKYO ”

    A very suitable headline for a unique Nation, our beloved Malaysia with a most distinguished and excellent DYMM Yang Di Pertuan Agong and DYMM Permaisuri Agong. We, the Rakyat, are indeed honoured by this royal privilege.

    2. ” PM REVEALS SECRET RECIPE FOR LONGEVITY. ”

    A Life of 108 years packed with good achievements for the Rakyat, is assured.

    3. ” PM advises varsity students to be rational. ”

    Learn how to think first before talking gobbledygook – Americanese for ‘talking c..k !

    4. ” ANWAR TELLS PKR GRASSROOTS TO IGNORE DISCONTENT OF IRRELEVANT FEW ”

    Literally the 4th best comment from DSAI in recent weeks. Syabas.

    HAS DSAI CHANGED HIS ADVISER ? DSAI now focussed on the bread and butter issues delivered with simple words unlike on some airy-fairy subjects of the past with an academic bent loaded with incomprehensible words which could not be deciphered by my simple brain but only the Oxford Dictionary.

    5. ” MALAYSIA CAN BECOME ‘ THE NEW TIGER ‘ IF PEOPLE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT HARAPAN – MUHYIDDIN. ”

    Well said, Sir. All Opposition nonsense should be shot down with the Truth with easy to understand sexy words.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

  191. mubarakchan Nov 2,2019 2:29 PM

    Tun

    Good headlines in recent times thus,

    1. ” PM. GLCs must not stifle private sector.”

    2. ” GLCs’ MUST EVALUATE PARTICIPATION IN CORPORATE MALAYSIA.”

    3. ” GLCs’ UNDERPERFORMANCE IN THE SPOTLIGHT ”

    I have been complaining about the corruption, abuses and the excesses of the GLCs’ for years in this distinguished Blog.

    On most occasions, I drew facts from the genesis of these evil GLCs’ for our beloved Malaysia as these were created by Lee Kuan Yew for his own sustainability and survival since the 1970s.

    At the beginning before the surge of Singapore Government linked companies (known as GLCs in the 1980s), I was invested in two factories in the Jurong Industrial Estate, the show-piece of Lee Kuan Yew’s Rugged Singapore in the late 1960s. I lost money because the first was at the tail end of an esoteric boom and the second, the best biscuits in Singapore could not be sold without a brand name.

    GLCs only work under Lee Kuan Yew who was honest and Singaporeans feared him in a tiny place where a person’s personal secrets were only a whisper away.

    GLCs in bigger countries are bound to fail and subjected to corruption, abuse, nepotism, disruption of the existing corporate system, brings a country to her knees like in Malaysia, off-Budget money leakages, jealousy in the Civil Service on the huge salaries of the GLCs executives, unprofitable – most of Singapore’s GLCs are monopolies and worse of all, each GLC sooner or later came under the control of crooks who could steal immense amount of money out before anyone realises especially the busy high Government officials who put these crooks in the GLCs eg FELDA, SIME DARBY (bankrupted twice in 1996 & 2010 by the SAME EXECUTIVES WHO WERE NEVER PROSECUTED). TH. MAS. KWAP. 1MDB.

    APART FROM THE FEW ESSENTIAL GLCs, ALL THE OTHER GLCs ARE USELESS IN THE NATIONAL INTERESTS BECAUSE OF THEIR SELF SERVING EXECUTIVES. Here is a true example.

    My friend made the best Hitachi mini-motor in Malaysia. After our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad retired in October 2003, my friend found his Malaysian quota being squeezed by Korean or Taiwanese products using local proxies. My friend contacted the lady officer in charge of purchasing at Proton who replied, ” WE DO NOT LISTEN TO HIM ANYMORE “. See how a GLC gone out of control and became a maverick. See how normal rules and regulations are not followed. See the absence of ethics, propriety, standards, integrity etc which have to be applied to make a factory ‘ship-shape.’

    This are our beloved Malaysia’s GLCs for you and me, folks !

    THE SOONER OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA GETS RID OF ALL THE GLCs OR WHAT HAVE YOU THE BETTER AND RETURN THESE TO THE PRIVATE SECTOR.

    BECAUSE WE ARE NOT SINGAPORE AND WE DO NOT EXPECT A MALAYSIAN ‘LEE KUAN YEW’ TO RULE OVER US ANYTIME SOON.

    AND A CORRUPT CORPORATE CORE WILL STIFLE OUT ALL PRIVATE SECTOR INITIATIVES IN DOING BUSINESS. Who wants to do business in such a country ?

    A GOOD EXAMPLE IS SIME DARBY WHICH INSTEAD OF RUNNING FORWARDS TO CREATE A US$ 100 BILLION BUSINESS SINCE 1975, SIME DARBY RAN BACKWARDS AND STILL STUCK WITH OIL PALM PLANTATIONS AND A HANDFUL OF FRANCHIES. Worse of all, Sime Darby is right into the business of Chinese contractors which is PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT WHICH I was never involved for a Life-time because of certain reasons. This also impinged on the Private Sector.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. If the GLCs are left in Government’s hands, we will see more of the same in the near future i.e off-budget spending and leakage, another round of depreciation of the ringgit. AND THE NEXT TIME, OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WILL KAPUT AS SURELY AS THE SUN RISES. Who wants GLCs ? Singapore, the BN ?

    IT IS FAR BETTER TO GIVE POLITICAL ASSOCIATES A SALARY ( you can control the quantum ) THAN TO APPOINT THEM TO A GLC TO USE AS A LEVERAGE TO MAKE UNLIMITED AMOUNTS OF MONEY AT THE RAKYAT’S EXPENSE.

  192. mubarakchan Nov 1,2019 6:26 PM

    Tun

    In response to the headline this morning, thus

    ” DR M – I DON’T KNOW WHY SINGAPORE REJECTS PROPOSAL FOR NEW BRIDGE. ”

    Only the Singaporeans know best for the following reasons :

    1. How many Malaysians have looked across the Causeway at the Singaporean CIQ Complex Woodlands from Johor Baru ? Did they notice that the design of the Complex was deliberately conceived to jar the eye of the beholder and hence his/her senses.

    The Singaporean CIQ Complex has a prickly design with sharp corners etc and painted black !

    It was alleged that Lee Kuan Yew had a Buddhist priest hanging around him to give him fortune telling tips. May be the ugliness and the hostile façade of the CIQ Complex Woodlands is a deliberate attempt to break the karma of our beloved Malaysia facing Singapore across the Straits. In the realm of the nether World anything is possible.

    2. No money ? How can it be with all the riches from the Questionable and Unmentionable Trades of the Cold War 1948-1989.

    3. Strategic reasons from a military viewpoint. In the latest modern warfare, tanks are out-moded with the drones gaining the upper hand.

    4. A combination of the 3 reasons as mentioned above. Still, it does not make sense as our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said.

    5. Politics ? To pick on the 100,000 Malaysian using the bridge every day. What politics ?

    THEREFORE THERE MUST BE ONE OR MORE REASONS FOR SINGAPORE TO BE RECALCITRANT ON THE BRIDGE. A reason which may well be that if a bridge is built on Singapore East, it may foretell the doom of the survival and sustainability Singapore ! It must be an important reason as this.

    Putting the HSR into perspective, the rail runs 99% on Malaysian land whilst Singapore could balloon their Golf Club on 1% or the land into a multi-billion complex. Stupid.

    Hence, the only reason Singapore rejected the bridge must be based on SOMETHING EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL ! Man proposes. God disposes.

    Since Singapore rejected the bridge, our beloved Malaysia CAN PROPOSE TO LEASE THE SINGAPORE PORTION OF THE BRIDGE BUILT BY MALAYSIA AT HER COST AND AT THE END OF 60 YEARS, THIS PORTION BECOMES SINGAPORE PROPERTY. How can Singapore now REJECT SUCH A PROPOSAL FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL. This shows our beloved Malaysia is friendly and not antagonistic ! SINGAPORE GETS A FREE BRIDGE COURTESY OF MALAYSIA.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem even though the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs gave all to what Singapore desired, and our beloved Malaysia only got back 1/2 an office building !

  193. mubarakchan Nov 1,2019 5:32 PM

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS.

    Kudos to you for your excellent discourse on the sogososha and chaebol.

    Malaysia missed the boat in the creation of these entities in the 1970s at the beginning of the NEP.

    All countries began their industrialization in the past like India and Japan in the 19th Century and Taiwan and South Korea in the late 20th Century through the establishment of the classic textile industry-light engineering-heavy industry complexes. The Japanese modernised this with the efficient sogoshosha – a trading-manufacturing-finance combine for one stop business.

    It was a privilege for me to be thrown into the bankrupt textile factory Folex Industries Berhad by MIDF and 5 banks to turn round the biggest bankrupt corporation in the mid-1970s. I certainly learnt a lot using my wits when I discovered the Consortium did not put in a single sen to bail out Folex which owed them over RM 32 Million. However, I managed to turn Folex round and made millions of ringgits for the Consortium without a single bail-out sen. At the end, I could make textile machinery, light machinery, light arms, motorcars, steel etc.

    In 1984, I discovered that the Government Policy was export orientated with an employment bias.. There were the FTZs where we saw huge amounts of money coming in and huge amounts of money going out of factories all owned by foreign investors.

    For a sogososha or chaebol operation to succeed, a textile mill forms the core which requires full Government backing, cheap land, finance and electricity. Affordable labour. Most importantly, a huge market for the goods. Hence, a sogososha or chaebol which is a trading-financial-industrial complex makes sense. This was the invention of the Japanese in the 20th Century – a one-stop trading business.

    Earlier, there was a fellow who used to pluck duck feathers for his mother in a Melaka wet market, making overtures to be an industrialist with a sogososha bent. He was part of the official team which toured the South Pacific. His only success in engineering was to buy a Rolls Royce to the ire of the denizens of the Royal Lake Club, Kuala Lumpur. One Tengku sniffed, ‘ Who do you think he is ?’ He collapsed soon after and ended up in Kajang jail from where he did a thriving business in orchids with complete freedom to move in and out of jail.

    At the beginning of every new Administration, I have noticed there were quirks like this. Now we have the flying car.

    Then our beloved Tun Mahathir Mohamad’s concepts of Proton, Perwaja, Bakun etc which were correct but implemented by the closest aides who let him down.

    In the case of Proton, money was walloped from everything from day one. Factory wastes which amounted to hundreds of thousands of ringgits per month were never returned to the Company or employees but became the prerogative of the person in control

    When I managed the bankrupt textile mill at Folex 1975-1984, I knew my cost per minute per 24 hours was RM 17 per minute for the whole factory. The sale of waste was returned to the workers. This is how a factory should be managed WITH NO LEAKAGE OF MONEY OUT OF THE SYSTEM BECAUSE MANUFACTURES COMPETE WORLD WIDE ON PRICE, QUALITY AND RELIABILITY. And a factory operation has many moving parts.

    And during 2004-2018, it was alleged that a Proton lady purchasing officer said, ‘ We do not listen to him anymore.’ when my friend tried to sell his Hitachi Malaysian made product to Proton. The Koreans and Taiwanese were crowding everybody out of Proton using local proxies.

    With the failure of Proton, Perwaja, Bakun etc which were the correct concepts of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who got the blame for the huge scandals caused by the closest aides, there is now a yawning gap in industrialization as envisaged by the Tun.

    And the closest aides now collect Stradivarius violins at US$ 5 Million a piece or buy listed companies on the Bursa which they do not know how to manage because they only know how to wallop public money.

    MALAYSIA HAS MISSED THE SOGOSOSHA OR CHAEBOL BOAT OF THE 1970s. How ?

    Still there are many opportunities available like (i) Halal food products for export World-wide. (ii) Conservation of our coastal wetlands for food production. (iii) tourism in all aspects from human resources to beautifying our land more like Switzerland (iv) cyberspace activities (v) service hubs for the aviation industry (vi) light engineering industries with full Government support with a bias towards automotive engineering and the 3rd National Car.(vii) Education hubs (ix) Medical Tourism. (x) Culinary promotions of the exotic Malaysian cuisine. (xi) develop the ports for more visits by luxury liners. etc.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem We do it the Malaysian Way, your Way !

  194. twinpeaks Nov 1,2019 10:18 AM

    As my father used to say, it is not the political party that is bad, but the leaders who are in that political party. By the same token, I would say the same about Government-linked Corporations or GLCs.

    In Japan and South Korea, as anywhere else in the capitalist world, companies that succeed must have strong financial backing and human resources. The best companies are the large ones, known as sogo shosas and chaebols. These corporate entities are centred around commercial banks that provide the required financial backing. They also provide the best human resource recruitment. As a result of these synergy, their ability to compete with the best from the West become natural over time.

    GLCs in Malaysia have the ability to do the same, provided that they have the same objectives, as the sogo shosas and chaebols. Especially when a country does not have the natural innovative culture that exists in Silicon Valley or Israel, where anyone can start a high-tech business from scratch, it is probably the only way for a country like Malaysia to break into genuine world business of a developed economy type.

    I see that Malaysia will eventually need to diversify away from its traditional industries like agriculture and foreign investment-based economic model, if it wants to evolve into a genuine, fearsome industrialized country. Given the size of its population, it cannot forever rely on foreign investment to drive its economy into the future, as this will make it a hostage to the interest of other industrialized countries and their MNCs. The only way to break out of the current model is to do what the Japanese and South Koreans had gone through after the war.

    A developed country status is meaningless, especially for a large country like Malaysia, unless it is also a leading economic power on world stage, and not simply a rich country. To be a genuine economic power, and not simply a wealthy developed economy (which Malaysia will be in a few years time), the country must be have the capability to compete in the same industries as other industrialized countries, and not simply to be part of their value chain (ie. foreign investment). It must have companies that compete directly with Toyota, Sony, Apple, Samsung, et cetera. It should not just have global brands that are resourced-based like Petronas. Even small industrialised countries like Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Switzerland have developed industry leaders – Eriksson, Nokia, Lego, Rolex, et cetera.

    That is what Malaysia should be aiming for.

    The controversial subject of the GLEs and the GLCs has been highlighted again by the publishing of a book sponsored by CAP, ” HOW MUCH IS HIDDEN ? Pay for Government linked entities “. I would like to re-title the book, ” THE LAST DAYS OF MALAYSIA ” or ” THE LAST DAYS OF POMPEII MALAYSIA.”

    The GLEs and GLCs are the poisoned chalices of Malaysia which are entirely unsuitable because of our poor ethics and enforcement.

    Besides, these GLEs and GLCs are the creations of Lee Kuan Yew in a tiny place by a quirk of accident arising from the failure of free enterprise traders and their industrial undertakings in the early days of the Jurong Industrial Estate.

    Lee Kuan Yew had to marshal hastily Singapore Government owned enterprises to fill the gap of providing employment to the people. Because these were mainly monopolistic, these companies became successful by the early 1980s. He coined them GLCs or Government Linked Companies.

    In Malaysia, the financial crisis of 1997-1998 hit the tycoons whose businesses were all later housed under Danaharta. The best were picked off by the nimble eg. Avenue

    The balance of these companies was pushed into the care of Khazanah by one smooth gent who had the secret agenda of over-lording a Government owned Empire according to the saying, ” The best to make money is not to own the business.’ which he carried on to the latter.

    THE ABUSE OF THE GLEs and the GLCs BEGAN HERE IN 2004 UNDER THE PRETEXT OF SAVING BUSINESSES FOR THE MALAYS AND ALSO MAKING MONEY FOR THEM.

    The recorded fact was between 2002-2018, over RM 1.5 Trillion was siphoned overseas according to the UN, the World Bank and the IMF Reports. An ordinary official could accumulate RM 2 Billion on his demise.

    In 2018, this was where the New and Incorruptible Government took over the unholy mess of GLEs and GLCs lock stock and barrel. The majority were money-losing concerns which were set-up without rhyme or reason.

    Here are some excerpts from the book. ” HOW MUCH IS HIDDEN ? ”

    1. Median of GLE non-executive directors pay grew by 19.9 per cent from 2016 to 2017 while the growth rate of median salaries and wages of employees was only 7.7 per cent.

    2.The highest estimated bonus to salary ratio uncovered in the book are 618% (in financial year 2015) for Acting President and CEO of SP Setia Berhad, 600% (FY 2017) for the Managing Director and CEO of IHH Healthcare Berhad and 433% (FY 2017) for the CEO of Telekom.

    PLEASE NOTE THESE FELLOWS WERE NOT THE OWNERS OF THE COMPANIES 100%. In fact any shareholder can sue and recover money for the greed and way out of line to the norm.

    MAS does not publish report of their directors’ remuneration.

    One MAS Managing Director had a luxury flat behind Harrods London in the 1980s. It is the one with the fountain at the entrance along Sloane Street, London. In the case of Air Serendipity, all such cash is recovered by the Company and only its clients benefit.

    In 2017, each GLCI executive director including CEOs earned on the average as much as the total wages of 308 employees.

    The Malaysian GLEs, GLCs, statutory bodies, foundations, special purpose vehicles, development financial institutions, state level agencies are the most abused and corrupt in the World.

    HOW IS OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA GOING TO PROGRESS AND ADVANCE WITH SUCH A ROTTEN CORPORATE CORE ?

    Yet there are strident calls for the RETENTION OF THESE ABUSED AND CORRUPTED GLEs/GLICs/GLCs etc. BY THE GOVERNMENT.

    As far as possible, as many of these entities should be divested to the Private Sector as the GOVERNMENT HAS NO BUSINESS TO DO BUSINESS IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR. These corrupted and abused entities were only INTRODUCED AFTER 2004 ON THE PRETEXT THAT MALAY BUSINESSES ARE PROTECTED AND THE GOVERNMENT MAKES MONEY FOR THE MALAYS. With the absurd slogan, ” What is good for Singapore is good for Malaysia.” These were just a cover-up for total financial rape and vandalism of Government assets. 2004-2018

    And now the following headlines on this controversial subject, thus

    1. ” GLICs, GLCs MUST FOCUS ON CREATING STRONG INSTITUTIONS – DR M ”

    These will be as strong as their weakest digits.

    2. ” GOVT LINKED ENTITY CHIEF EXECUTIVES EARN AVERAGE RM 308K PER MONTH – CAP ”

    From 1975-1984, I made millions of ringgits for the MIDF Consortium turning round the biggest corporate bankruptcy in Malaysia in a tough textile business without a single bail-out sen. I was paid only RM 7,000 per month for 9 years and given an Alfa Romeo plus one month’s bonus. Now 1MDB with RM 42 Billion cannot make one single ringgit. As one ex-UMNO Tan Sri once told me when he found out that I was not ennobled, ‘ Something wrong. Somewhere.’ The next moment he was bussing the painted cheeks of a Singaporean lady of a certain age.

    3. ” FORUM – PUTRAJAYA SHOULD DIVEST FROM GLCs, SUPPORT LOCAL FIRMS.”

    4. ” PM. KHAZANAH STRAYED FROM CORE BUSINESSES, NEEDS TO BE REINED IN.”

    I have proposed a couple of times in the past that the divestment of these useless to the Government GLEs except PLUS should be offered to the following, thus

    i) Offer to new owners and their partners acceptable to the Government.

    ii) Offer to the incumbent Management and their partners acceptable to the Government.

    iii) Offer to the former owners if they have not broken the laws and their partners if acceptable to the Government.

    BECAUSE AS SURELY AS THE SUN RISES, THE BORN AGAIN GLECs/GLICs/GLCs WILL FINISH OFF OUR BELOVVED MALAYSIA AND HER DEMOCRATIC WAY OF LIFE FOR GOOD, IF THESE TOXIC ENTITIES ARE PERMITTED TO LIVE AGAIN LIKE THE MANY HEADED SERPENT !

    Here are some interesting and self-explanatory headlines of recent days which are easy to understand unless the person is deaf, dumb and blind or a Martian from Mars, thus

    Today, there are some exhilarating headlines but at least one which is vicious and small-minded in the Malaysiakini which kept on enlarging fake information. Thus,

    1. ” TASK FORCE FORMED TO FACILITATE DRUG DECRIMINALIZATION PROCESS. ”

    Kudos to YB SADDIQ for his courage to help the many non-criminal addicts. The many NS camps established by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLC/SOEs to cream off corrupt money can now be put to good use. Non-criminal addicts must never be put in prisons. This is inhumane and cruel. Let the New and Incorruptible Government earns the just rewards by doing the right thing unlike the corrupt BN Government.

    2. ” ANWAR POINTS FINGER AT POLITICAL LEADERS FOR CAUSING RACIAL TENSIONS.”

    Kudos to DSAI for his 3rd sensible comment to put a stop to the verbal diarrhoea of the Opposition.

    3. ” THE MESSAGE IS MINORITIES SHOULD KNOW THEIR PLACE AND SHUT UP. ” Malaysiakini.

    IGNORANT INDIOTS LIKE THIS FELLOW ARE BORN EVERYDAY. HE PROBABLY WAS NOT BORN WHEN ON 13 MAY 1969, THE MALAYS HAD ONLY 2% OF THE MALAYSIAN ECONOMY, THE BRITISH 70% OF THE BEST, THE CHINESE 25% OF THE THIRD RATE, AND HOW SIME DARBY CAME INTO THE MALAYS HANDS TO FAST TREK THEM TO BIG BUSINESS.

    Your World itineraries have brought so many new business opportunities for Malaysian entrepreneurs that I have lost count.

    The latest and one of the most exciting countries is Turkmenistan, a key hub country which is friendly and hospitable to Malaysians.

    From the concept of the FELDA Group embarking on a halal food products venture World wide with the food resources of Australia and New Zealand in mind, Turkmenistan is most attractive. Imagine in the future, the FELDA Group has halal food products associates in Turkmenistsn, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar and Dubai etc in conjunction with its traditional palm oil business which is exclusive to the settlers themselves or have a joint venture with LTAT to create a bigger footprint. A serious new industry with new jobs and opportunities not only for the settlers but for all.

    Now is a great opportunity for the New and Incorruptible Government to put all the pieces in the right places to form an efficient and productive picture to benefit the Rakyat especially the Malay Trusts. This is only proper in a small country – TO REACH OUT TO NEW FRIENDS IN NEW COUNTRIES WHERE SIME DARBY DOES NOT TREAD !

    What is better than a properly managed huge halal food corporation to serve the World of 1.2 Billion Muslims. A sort of Islamic Nestle or Danone which is a Malaysian Creation based in Malaysia ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Your itineraries have created fantastic business opportunities. Let us hope the FELDA Group takes up the challenge. An ancient saying often quoted by the late P.P. Narayanan.” Out of Crisis, Opportunity.”

    TWIN PEAKS.

    I dare say again that your sensible comments on Britain, EU and the Commonwealth are dot on. My sentiments are similar.

    I was aghast when Britain opted to join her former enemies of centuries ago in the EU in 1973 having lived in Britain during my youth like you after a devastating War of attrition. To my observation, they are as different as chalk and cheese. Britain at that juncture was prepared to throw away her hard-earned assets derived from an ex-Empire. Enoch Powell, if you remember him, predicted today’s outcome. There were whispers that the gnomes of Zurich were behind Britain’s entry for commerce sake together with the United States for hegemonic reasons. These two parties are not to be seen these days of a difficult BREXIT.

    Indeed you are absolutely correct in your opinion that Britain after BREXIT will be a good trading and helpful partner for Malaysia to advance our hi-tech capabilities and educational advancement.

    Not only that, in recent months when the dire state of Singapore’s failed political and socio-economic model began to show through monthly statistics – and this has been going on for 17 years, I PROPOSED THAT SINGAPORE SHOULD CONFEDERATE WITH BRITAIN ON EQUAL TERMS. Like this, overnight Singapore will zoom up to be one of the top rank Nations with her survival assured and also Malaysia and ASEAN will have Britain right on our door-step as a catalyst to drive the great community of ASEAN forward to greater socio-economic heights with our over 400 million inhabitants.

    With this unique Confederation, the strategic geo-political status of our beloved Malaysia is finally engraved in stone.

    And of course, NO MORE SNEAKY TRICKS FROM SINGAPORE WHICH WILL BE ON A HIGHER PLANE OF ENDEAVOUR IF HER BLAND LEADERSHIP HAS THE WISDOM VISION AND COURAGE TO CONFEDERATE AND CATCH THE BULL BY THE HORNS !

    Remember these clever Singaporean folks missed investing in GOLD at US 300 per ounce before 2000 with their US$ 500 Billion garnered from the Questionable and Unmentionable Trades blessed by Uncle Sam during the Cold War 1948-1989? Instead they descended down from their squeaky clean GIC Olympian heights to Wall Street and the City probably encouraged by the flatteries of the gnomes of Zurich and promptly lost US$ 108 Billions in October 2008 to the hoi-polloi !

    WITH 4,000 TONS OF GOLD, SINGAPORE WOULD HAVE BEEN THE KING OF THE HILL YEARS AGO AND NOT A KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOUR ! This opportunity is now gone forever. Hence, the Confederation Proposal is the last bus home for tiny Singapore.

    As for Malaysia with Britain-Singapore on her doorstep, our beloved Nation will know no bounds in taking advantage of all the goodies available for our smooth advancement to the top. And Malaysia will be the LEADING COUNTRY AND GATEWAY FOR BRITAIN-SINGAPORE CONFEDERATION IN ASEAN/EAST ASIA

    TWIN PEAKS THESE ARE CHALLENGING TIMES FOR CHALLENGING ENDEAVOURS.

    ‘ WHO DARES WINS ‘

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. The icing on the cake for your Leadership of our beloved Malaysia will be when Singapore confederates with Britain. A win-win for all in socio-economic terms and will be the after-burner to propel Malaysia to the stars !

    My humble apologies on a typo error in my comment on the significant and important headlines on DSAI comments, thus

    2. ” ANWAR: ACADEMIC WAS SILENT ON CORRUPTION YET MAKES UNMITIGATED DISASTER CLAIM. “

  201. twinpeaks Oct 28,2019 2:05 PM

    As the UK Conservative Prime Minister tables his motion for a December 12 general elections, under the Fixed Terms Parliament Act today, which requires a two-third majority to pass, and it is likely NOT be granted by the Labour Party, the UK is gradually inching toward a December general elections nonetheless. Failing the Monday vote, Boris Johnson is likely to go for another early election vote that will only require a simple majority, and with the promise of support from the Liberal Democrats and Scottish National Party, this will likely succeed. However, the Lib Dems are not likely to see a second referendum despite given an extension to January 31 by Brussels. The Tories are likely to get a simple majority in the new Parliament, and if they do, then the Withdrawal Bill will be passed soon after the December 9 elections. The United Kingdom will be officially out of the European Union in the New Year.

    After joining Europe in 1973, Britain’s leaving the EU will be a great thing for the Commonwealth, as Malaysia can now form an even closer trade and educational relationship together, now that the constraints of an inward-looking union like the EU are removed.

    It will see Britain playing a new and greater role on the global stage, as a genuine leader of the Commonwealth. Malaysia, as one of the few developed countries in the Commonwealth, can play an important part of this new trend too.

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON LOYALTY AND DISLOYALTY TO THE YANG DI PERTUAN AGONG AND THE CONSTITUTION.

    During my long years as a student in the United Kingdom, I suffered only twice by racism.

    1. In 1952, I went for a hair-cut in the barber-shop near Malaya Hall, London. Whilst he was shaving me, he asked me a lewd question about Chinese women. He was a low class East London Jew.

    2. In 1958, the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Registrar of the hospital in London picked on me for the 3 months when I joined his ‘firm’ and grilled me every morning. I nearly collapsed. Maybe he was adverse to see a young Chinaman clinically examining naked white women. He was a New Zealander. Since then, I swore I will never visit that apartheid country. This confirmed the next item.

    3. Just a few years ago, a New Zealander judge openly said he could not distinguish one Chinese from another.

    FROM THE ABOVE-MENTIONED EXAMPLES HOPEFULLY THE MALAYS IDENTIFY FROM WHICH CLAN THE RECALCITRANT CHINESE CAUSING ALL THE TROUBLE IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA BELONGED TO BECAUSE I AM NOT PREPARED TO TAKE THE BLAME FOR THESE CROOKS AND SO ARE THE 85% – 90% CHINESE WHO ARE LAW ABIDING AND LOYAL. We must call a spade, a spade and nothing else.

    I have always said that there are many types of Chinese in Malaysia. I also said that some Chinese are so very clever as to be stupid. Within this context that some observers have pointed out that the country is moving towards another 13 May 1969.

    I beg to disagree with the notion that we are moving towards an incident like 13 May 1969 for the following reasons :-

    1. On 13 May 1969, the British had 70% of the best assets of the Malaysian economy even 12 years after Merdeka. The Chinese had 25% of the third rate with a handful of tycoons, the Malays had 2%.

    2. Then, the country was under the aegis of the Currency Board of Malaysia Singapore Sarawak Sabah and Brunei which policy for the country was the Government can only spend what it earned. Unlike a central bank which is banker to the Government, issues the currency and safeguards the currency. Malaysia’s central bank, Bank Negara Malaysia was established in 1958.

    With the Currency Board Policy, the financial system was illiquid. The rich became richer. The poor became poorer. My newly graduated Malay and non-Malay friends had no access to finance which was non-existent eg. no credit cards, no overdrafts, no housing or motorcar loans etc.

    The pressure of inequality built up from the early 1960s onwards as the graduates returned home in numbers throughout the 1960s.

    3. In 1967, there were riots in Penang due to the imposition of custom duties.

    4. Political agitation began with Lee Kuan Yew and his crew in the Dewan Rakyat from 1963-1965.

    5. A person was accidentally killed by a policeman at Kepong. The Opposition mainly Leftists took up the cause and demonstrated in the streets of Kuala Lumpur.

    6. The victorious Opposition after the General Elections were out in force with gongs and drums going around the centre of Kuala Lumpur abusing and insulting the losers.

    7. There was free movement for gangsters via the Causeway from Singapore until a Restricted Passport was required in 1971.

    8. At 2.30 pm on 13 May 1969, the President of the MCA out of pique withdrew MCA from the Alliance. This was the trigger which set the tragedy ablaze. By 10 pm. MCA returned to the Alliance. but it was far too late. Many lost their lives or were injured. I knew about the 2.30 pm trigger because at that point my friends in the UMNO Youth advised me to go home.

    9. The British were blaming the Chinese for exploiting the country commercially.

    The many factors mentioned above sparked off the 13 May 1969 incident.

    With the promulgation of the NEP in 1971, an equal playing field for all was assured. But the Malays did not have a single big business.

    1. By chance, I could conceptualise the take-over of British assets on fair market terms by the Malays at fair market values instead of nationalization. My 1972 Concept with the taking over Sime Darby PLC was not only the first but was supported by the Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak and his confidante YBM Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.

    2. My Sime Darby Concept 1972 not only fitted in well with the NEP to give the Malays a platform for big business but set a pattern for the future take-over of British assets like Guthrie etc. The cost of Sime Darby was only RM 23 Million.

    My total emolument as a non-executive Director from 1974-1992 was RM 500,000 before income tax. Thereafter I was asked to resign by the Malaysian Management whose jobs were created by me so that they could bankrupt Sime Darby twice at RM 1.2 Billion and RM 2.10 Billion in 1997 and 2010 respectively. Instead of becoming the World class business flagship of Malaysia worth RM 100 Billion, now it is just a fine type of British trading house without the Empire Preference with no risks.

    In fact Sime Darby should takeover PLUS at a minimum of RM 40+ Billion !

    3. The significant period of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad began in 1981 to build up our beloved Malaysia to what it is today. 1981-2003.

    4. The Killer was the period 2004-2018 ruled by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs. The country’s debt zoomed up to RM 1.5 Trillion from RM 350 Billion 2004-2018 and ALL THE MALAY ELITE DISAPPEARED WITH THE WASH.

    FROM THE ABOVE FACT IT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE FOR ANYONE TO DEMAND MORE HAND-OUTS, MORE TOP JOBS AND MORE LIVING SPACE BECAUSE ALL THESE DEMANDS WERE PROVIDED FOR AS LONG AGO AS 1971

    WITH THE PROMULGATION OF THE NEP. And I went out of my way to help all to benefit from the NEP by suggesting that ALL BRITISH ASSETS SHOULD BE BOUGHT AT FAIR MARKET PRICES IN ORDER ALL NON-MALAY ASSETS AND BUSINESSES WERE NOT INTERFERED WITH.

    For my Sime Darby effort to even out a playing field for the Malays to fast trek into BIG BUSINESS quickly instead of bothering the Chinese businesses, the Leader of MCA called me ‘ A MALAY BUM SUCKER ‘. This very person walloped the assets of Sime Darby at least twice.

    On one occasion, he only paid RM 4 Million for an asset worth at least RM 88 Million which he had sold to Selangor Perangsaan and a Chinaman at this price. The real value was RM 150 Million. Man proposes. God disposes. This fellow was jailed by both sides of the Causeway.

    It upsets me to find that most non-Chinese assumed the Chinese are homogenous. THIS IS FAR FROM THE TRUTH BECAUSE IN MALAYSIA THERE ARE THE MOST NUMBER OF DIFFERENT CLANS EXCEPT IN CHINA. eg. Hakkas, Hokkiens, Teochews, Cantonese, Shanghainese, Hainanese, Muslim Chinese etc.

    THE MAJORITY OF THE MALAYSIAN CHINESE AT LEAST 85%-90% ARE LOYAL AND LAW-ABIDING. Only a very small minority belonging to not more than THREE DIFFERENT CLANS ARE FOREVER BREAKING THE LAW IN TERMS OF POLITICS OR ECONOMICS.

    The British sieved the Chinese out by demanding to know what dialect a Chinese spoke when they filled in the Government forms because they know that DIFFERENT CHINESE CLANS BEHAVE DIFFERENTLY.

    For example, a Cantonese is conservative and independent and will never break the law whilst another clan would have individuals who suddenly go bonkers and defy the law in politics and commerce. There is one like this on his way to Changi Jail now.

    Therefore, from the vast pool of information which I provided above, there is no NECESSITY TO DEMAND FOR MORE OF ANYTHING BY ANY MALAYSIAN, MALAY OR NON-MALAY.

    On the Superman Comic caper, A SERIOUS QUESTION OF LOYALTY TO OUR BELOVED YANG DI PERTUAN AGONG AND THE CONSTITUTION COMES INTO PLAY.

    What sort of Chinese is involved ? Why are they DISLOYAL BY PRODUCING COMICS WITH FOREIGN IDEOLOGIES FOR SCHOOLS ? TO THE EXTENT THAT THE WHOLE OBJECTIVE OF THESE TREASONOUS CHINESE CLANSMEN SEEMED ONLY TO DRAW THE ATTENTION OF THE HEAD OF A FOREIGN STATE TO PLEASE OR GAIN FAVOUR FROM HIM . This clearly illustrates what I have been saying that there are Chinese who are so very clever as to be stupid.- the crypto-communists.

    Then we have the crypto-singaporeans who forever are attempting to push for the RAITIFICATION OF THE KILLER OF MALAYSIA.MALAYS/SMEs, TPPA/CPTPP. In the last quarter of 2018, a Deputy Minister of the New and Incorruptible Government mentioned that the ratification of the TPPA/CPTPP would be a good thing (for SINGAPORE).

    FINALLY IT PAYS FOR ALL RAKYAT TO BE AWARE THAT 85%-90% OF THE MALAYSIAN CHINESE ARE LOYAL AND LAW-ABIDING AND BE SELECTIVE WHEN IT COMES TO DECIDING WHO ARE DISLOYAL OR LOYAL TO THE YANG DI PERTUAN AGONG AND THE CONSTUTION.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem but beware of CRYPTO-SINGAPOREANS AND CRYPTO-COMMUNISTS HOLDING POSITIONS ALL OVER THE ESTABLISHMENT. Remember the 4th Floor Boys 2004-2009, folks ? They walloped a big chunk of the Rakyat’s money too !

    Yes, I absolutely agree with the contention that Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew did anything and everything he could to ensure that Singapore could survive after separating from Malaysia. I very much doubt that he would have been able to build his nation up the way he did, if Singapore was still inside Malaysia, given that we were and are very opposed to supporting the United States and her close allies. And this again is due to our very strong religious link to certain countries that have always been in conflict with Western countries since the beginning of time. So, Singapore was at the right place at the right time. The right time because of the Cold War period 1948-1990, and the right place because of the many Communist elements lurking throughout Asia, and Southeastern Asia in particular (Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, just a few). Hence, the questionable and unmentionable trades. And also the fact that Southeast Asia’s strong post-colonial preference for autocratic and militaristic governments can be directly attributed to the Cold War period. For the United States, global democracy needs to be protected, even at the expense of suppressing democratic aspirations in certain regions themselves. Central America and southern Africa are two other cases in point. This is the operating foreign policy doctrine since President Monroe in the eighteenth century. Until today.

    I once read an excerpt of an interview by the journalist Tom Plate, where Lee Kuan Yew joked that he didn’t really have any idea how Singapore should be based upon, economic policy wise, neither in the past nor in future. According to him, Singapore leaders and himself included, simply look at the results that they want to achieve, and take ANY means, including the questionable and unmentionable trades et cetera, to achieve those results. Lee said he is not a Communist, a Socialist, or even a Democrat. For him and the PAP (perhaps for its own political survival), results are the only thing that matter. Nothing else. That is why, when all its neighbours oppose Israel, Singapore does not. Such a country is very rare in this day and age. It is a unique country. The political apathy of the average Singapore voter has a lot to do with this state of things. In Malaysia, this would not have been possible. Hence, we are always a step or two behind Singapore economically. But given Malaysia’s social history, this is probably not a problem for its leaders. Economic success or not, social stability is more important.

    Malaysia is like Singapore in a way, only in different spheres.

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT THE WEALTH OF SINGAPORE AND LEE KUAN YEW.

    Here are a few more reasons why the Wealth of Singapore was not the creation of Lee Kuan Yew’s brilliance even though he did put his imprint on all projects established in his time or thereafter.

    13. It was the huge profits of an estimated US$ 500 Billion which pushed Singapore from a 3rd World country to the First. The effort came from the generosity of Uncle Sam in giving Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore the monopoly in the Questionable and the Unmentionable Trades in the Cold War 1948-1989.

    14. He paid regular visits to the White House whilst the going was good during the Cold War 1959-1989.

    15. The support for Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore maybe zeroed in as the right man in the right place during the Kennedy period 1961-1963.

    16. The Uncle Sam solid backing for Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore to have the monopoly to do the Questionable and the Unmentionable Cold War Trades caused Lee Kuan Yew to be brash in the Federation 1963-1965 during which Singapore became a de facto American Colony. Hence, our Tunku was completely mystified why Lee Kuan Yew left the Federation so happy. Vide The Tunku’s book. because Lee Kuan Yew had Uncle Sam’s backing since 1962 !

    17. When Singapore was a sleepy colonial tropical port, Singapore had a fizzy 7% GDP 1948-1980s. Now with all the glitter of a First World country Singapore could not breach the 3% GDP from 2002 to 2019. As one ex-UMNO Tan Sri once said to me when he found that I was not ennobled, “Something wrong somewhere !’ The next moment he was bussing the painted cheeks of a Singapore lady of a certain age.

    18. The 21st Century has revealed the secret machinery of Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore – how Singapore ticked. IT WAS UNCLE SAM’S COLD WAR 1948-1989 LARGESSE DERIVED FROM THE QUESIONABLE AND UNMENTIONABLE TRADES OF THE COLD WAR 1948-1989.

    19. From all accounts, it seemed wealth was thrust upon Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore by Uncle Sam during the Cold War 1948-1989. This did not come out of Lee Kuan Yew’s mind-set unlike our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who could think out of the box to establish the many unique projects for Malaysia.

    20. Because of the limitation of Lee Kuan Yew’s mind-set, HE MISSED INVESTING IN GOLD AT US$ 300 per ounce up to 4,000 tons before 2000. This would have filled the void created by Uncle Sam and the end of the Cold War after which the BRICS grabbed Singapore’s Cold War monopolistic trading turf.

    GOLD WOULD HAVE TURNED SINGAPORE FROM A KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOUR TO THE KING OF THE HILL ! Also, his greatest failure which was his 2 Child Family Policy 1972-1984 was not properly thought out by him. This created the dilemma of only 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-50 today. How to be super-duper like this ? Vide. Singapore Government White Paper 2011.

    20. The best chance for Singapore’s survival today is to confederate with the United Kingdom on EQUAL TERMS.

    21. For decades, I was not convinced that Singapore made her riches from smuggling cigarettes and liquor to and from Indonesia and Malaysia or from the brilliance of Lee Kuan Yew and his crew. As a trained scientist, I had to discover the TRUTH which is backed up with evidence.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem

    Tun

    FOR TWIN PEAKS.

    Since you are an old friend from that old place of our youth, I seek to convince you that the wealth of Singapore today was not the creation of Lee Kuan Yew but from Uncle Sam’s Cold War largesse 1948-1989.

    Here are the evidence and the circumstantial evidence which I discovered by accident through the years and were collated together in recent years in the course of my study what made Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore ticked 1959-2015, thus :-

    1. My friend in Beach Road Singapore had the Remington franchise since 1947. Five years after the Colonels’ Revolt in Indonesia 1948, he could purchase a 13,000 acres rubber estate formerly owned by the Japanese from the Custodian of Enemy properties.

    2. In 1962, Lee Kuan Yew claimed the CIA tried to bribe him.

    3. In the mid-1970s, I met a Taiwanese who owned the military soft-ware factory, Diaward Pioneer Industries, Jurong who told me his Libyan agent could retire to Monte Carlo after 5 years. Also, he told me that his business was very profitable because people fight all the time and would pay any price for the items they wanted. This is only the SOFT military ware. What about the hardware like guns etc.?

    4. From the 1950s to the 1980s, a sleepy colonial tropical harbour could gain a fizzy 7% GDP annually.

    5. From the end of the Cold War in 1990 when the BRICS grabbed the monopolistic and profitable Questionable and Unmentionable Trades permitted by Uncle Sam for Singapore during the Cold War 1948-1989 because Lee Kuan Yew was the right man in the right place, Singapore’s GDP began to slide downwards. In the early 1990s, Goh Chok Tong was despatched to India to recruit FTs to fill the GDP gap. This failed up to 2019.

    6. From 1990s, the exclusive engineering Jurong factories of the Singapore Government began to close down one by one.

    7. By 2002, Singapore’s GDP could not attain 3% again up to 2019. The missing link of 2%-3% could only have come from the lush profits of the Cold War 1948-1989 which I estimated to be about US$ 500 Billion.

    8. This figure was worked out by me from the official announcement of a loss of US$ 108 Billions on Wall Street and the City in October 2008.

    9. Finally the impression given to all was that Singapore made secret profits from the smuggling of cigarettes and liquor to and from Indonesia and Malaysia. It does not make sense such soft goods realised so much money. Also the majority do not smoke or drink.

    10. In 1962, the same time as Lee Kuan Yew’s CIA expose and Operation Cold Store, a UN Dutch economics expert Dr Albert Winsemius was appointed as Adviser to the Singapore Government. He retired in 1984. I now reckon he had a DUAL ROLE. First, he was the Adviser to ensure that the huge profits endowed by Uncle Sam from the Cold War Trades 1948-1989 were properly spent. Second, he was a CIA handler keeping a close watch on Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore. The uneasiness of the role of Dr Winsemius was aptly expressed by the fact he was only given a parchment and two medals of which only one was gold on his retirement in 1984. Only 2 years ago, a tiny lane in Singapore was named in his memory surrounded by the magnificent glitter of Singapore, Changi Airport, the Bedok Reclamation, Jurong Industrial Park, Asian Dollar etc which were all Dr Winsemius’s handiwork.
    11. Finally, why Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore were not publicised to all and sundry as the paragon of Humankind achievement or awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace ? Obviously, his peers knew how Lee Kuan Yew made his money for Singapore.

    12. The weak economic results of Singapore since the end of the Cold War 1948-1989, put paid to my contention that the wealth of Singapore was not the creation of Lee Kuan Yew but from the Cold War 1948-1989 largesse of Uncle Sam.

    13. I hope you concur, TWIN PEAKS that there is no cogent reason why countries should envy the wealth of Singapore as the saying goes –

    BALZAC. ” BEHIND EVERY GREAT FORTUNE. A GREAT CRIME.” Dear TWIN PEAKS !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem

    I would say this about Singapore. I find that their ruling party cannot lose a general election because it truly acts in a way that it CANNOT lose a general election. Pity whoever their opposition are and will be. If the PAP keeps doing this, Singapore is only a democracy in name, if democracy means the willingness to keep changing the government. In practice, it doesn’t do democracy because the people simply have no reason to keep the PAP out of power. Call it the Kiasu approach to governance or whatever, but this party really knows how to play politics. Not only to its own advantage, but for the little nation they have built from scratch and now the envy of every nation on this planet, even Switzerland.

    I am not so sure the United Kingdom will remain united after Brexit takes place, which by Michael Gove’s estimate is still end of this month. Of course, Boris Johnson had already requested for an extension, but it is clear that Brussels will only give a substantial one if the UK holds a general election. If Parliament votes down again a motion for a general election on Monday, then Michael Gove might get his wish afterall.

    Tun

    There is a non-contentious issue which has been swirling around for months aimlessly which is on the question of whether it is appropriate for a successor to take-over your Prime Ministership or not.

    1. WHO IS THE MOST QUALIFIED PERSON IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO BE THE PRIME MINISTER AFTER THE FINANCIAL RAPE AND VANDALISM OF THE WHOLE COUNTRY AND HER 31 MILLION CITIZENS BY THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE AND GLCs/SOEs ? Our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, of course !

    2. WHO IS THE MOST QUALIFIED PERSON IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO BE THE PRIME MINISTER AT PRESENT FROM AGE ONE TO 100 YEARS ? Our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, of course !

    I always said that history is the finest arbiter of the Truth. Please take note of the following historical events within this context.

    i) Since 1966 the Opposition had tried its hardest to attain POWER. They failed miserably because they did not have the proper Leadership which is required in our beloved Malaysia.

    ii) By 2018, the Opposition realised that to oust the corrupt BN Government, an iconic political personality was required to lead the Opposition. They were fortunate that the Sovereignty and National Interest of the Rakyat, the political will of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and the aims of the Opposition 1966-2018 CONVERGED

    iii) It is also obvious that without the peerless Leadership of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who is wise, brilliant and courageous, the Opposition will be out of POWER from Putrajaya again and still twiddling their sore thumbs !

    iv) We Malaysians have already tolerated and suffered for 14 years witnessing the wanton rape and vandalism of our beloved Malaysia’s resources by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs – worse than the rape of the Sabine women of ancient Rome !

    v) Then in 2018, our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad appeared to oust the corrupt BN Government with DSAI and the Team by his side. A task that no one could have done but our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side.

    vi) OK ?

    vii) Thereafter, some detractors, troublemakers, morons, Martians, half-past six types, opportunists and crypt-Singaporeans or communists hankered only a two-year term limitation for our Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as the Prime Minister.

    viii) Is a political iconic Malaysian, the only one in the country WORTH ONLY A TWO YEAR TERM AS PRIME MINISTER AFTER OUSTING THE GREATEST KLEPTOCRATIC CROOKS IN THE WORLD WHO WILL DEFINITEDLY MAKE IT TO THE GUINESS BOOK OF RECORDS FOR CROOKS AND HE SAVED 31 MILLION INNOCENT AND HONEST MALAYSIANS AND THEIR BELOVED MALAYSIA FROM CERTAIN DEATH FINANCIALLY OR OTHERWISE ?

    ix) Those who are of the view that only a 2 year term as a Prime Minister for our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad must have taken a holiday in Mars or a Martian or else either deaf, blind and dumb given the huge upheaval of our beloved Malaysia’s traditional good governance and rich monetary reserves amongst the loss of many other assets like our Malay elite who disappeared in the decadent wash !

    x) My view that our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad should stay as the Prime Minister until 100 years old for the following reasons :-

    a. The first person a Malay is the Prime Minister at 100 years old. A Malaysian first to beat the whole World and all the other Malaysian attempts to enter the Guiness Book of Records. An achievement which is better than a Malaysian atomic bomb, Nobel Prize or climb Mt Everest. THIS ACHIEVEMENT IS UNREPEATABLE AND UNBEATABLE !

    b. Those who disagree are invited to check in at the Woodbridge Home, Singapore.

    c. We the Rakyat, 31 million cannot be so ungrateful and forgetful to our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who with DSAI and the Team by his side to brush the World’s most famous Prime Minister aside and allot him only 2 miserable terms as Prime Minister. WHAT WILL THE WORLD THINK OF US, MALAYSIANS ?

    A bunch of Americans who forget easily or like the British who try not to forget ? We are proud and dignified Malaysians who stand proud and united by giving our iconic Leader Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to be are our Prime Minister as long as he DESIRES.

    d. PRIME MINISTERS ARE BORN NOT MADE. FAILURES CROPPED UP DURING THE DARK AGE OF MALAYSIAN HISTORY 2004-2018.

    e. HISTORY IS THE FINEST ARBITER OF THE TRUTH !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem. There is no such thing as retirement these days because we all live to more than 100 years. Retirement is an out-dated Colonial word ! My sister died just over 100 years old. Acheh !

    Here is another important headline from Singapore today, thus

    ” SINGAPORE JOBLESS RATE RISES TO DECADE HIGH IN Q3. BUT EMPLOYMENT GROWTH ALSO UP. ”

    Is this a so-called Singapore bitter-sweet announcement or does this represent the failure of Lee Kuan Yew’s Political Socio-economic Model for the sustainability and survival of Singapore – its first signs of failure in a post-Cold War World 1948-1989.

    As is well-known, Lee Kuan Yew considered the Singapore Harbour as its first priority which I believe is now out-moded by the advent of the World of the Net and air-cargo. Also are reports of on-going economic events over-taking the mental capabilities or mind-sets of her elite to transform Singapore’s Political Socio-economic Model into an enduring one ? Of course this move is risky and speculative which might be beyond the capabilities of her present Leadership.

    Then the safest Model would be to confederate with the United Kingdom on equal terms. Singapore’s last chance to ride the last bus home.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    Tun

    Is there a purpose in the present bout of self-inflicted hara-kiri by the loose-cannons of the incumbent New and Incorruptible Government these recent days ?

    The quest to fulfil apparent hastily thought out General Election promises by a minority group is the apparent cause of all the hot-air now blowing.

    Major issues governed by the Constitution are at play with the proponents swearing that they are the true representatives of the Rakyat. Some issues related to education may have some merits but there are those which cross the red line of no return should be treated as VERBOTON to all attempts.

    Some of us keep forgetting that our Malaysian Society is not homogenous. Only yesterday, the Star page 16, a mis-informed writer presented an article with facts lifted from events based on Western homogenous societies which argued in favour of similar issues in Malaysia.

    This article was self-defeating because the writer was not a foreigner but born and bred in Malaysia. Therefore, the writer’s knowledge about our diverse Malaysian society should be well-known to the writer who claimed to have attended the University of Malaya as well. Why should the writer aped the West which has entirely different values as compared with the East ?

    Similarly, the proposal that our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad should do according to Harapan Manifesto without delay is a very tall order in Malaysian Politics especially when community lines are crossed to achieve certain objectives. It is easy to shout slogans at a General Election but it is sometimes impossible when a person is on top of the governing heap which embraces all living under the Sun, 31 millions.

    There is such thing as a common majority view. In Switzerland, the German speaking Swiss seem to dominate everywhere with the French, Italian and Romansch speaking Swiss playing second fiddle. And Switzerland was confederated 800 years ago.

    There are issues which maybe achieved over time. But there are issues which should be treated as sacred cows of Malaysia, to be admired but not to be tampered with. For those in public service to pretend not to know these red lines is a travesty of justice. Knowledge of the minefields will ease many a pitfall or slip ‘twixt between cup and lip’.

    I am referring the uncalled for and rude attempt to force our beloved Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to do whatever was the bidding.

    At this time and age in the aftermath of the decadent rule of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs which had turned our beloved Malaysia from a rich to a poor Nation, naturally and instinctively, the incumbent Government efforts must be focussed on our SOCIO-ECONOMIC recovery and nothing else. This is the First Priority. Rice for all.

    All political issues should be placed in the back-burner for now until our beloved Malaysia becomes rich again and concomitantly political issues of importance then could be reconsidered. Until then, all parties supporting the incumbent Government should join hands to make our beloved Malaysia to recover socio-economically as quickly as possible. Surely, any sensible and well-informed person would agree to this unless he or she is from Mars ?

    Who is the most experienced and trustworthy amongst the milling political crowd these days to sort our political mess in crisis ? Our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad of course.

    AND DID ANYONE IN THE PRESENT RULING HIERACHY FORESAW THAT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WAS NEARLY BANKRUPTED BY THE BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 BEFORE THE 14TH GE ?

    Any practising politician would have the commonsense and mindset to see that to force major controversial political issues through against the back-drop of a economy in crisis is not only self-defeating but self-hara kiri or self-immolation. I am surprised some still act governed by their emotions and not their commonsense in the face of the present crisis caused by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Let history decides that you should serve more than a full term ! Acheh !

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON THE SUPERMAN COMIC.

    This is for those who cannot remember.

    At the height of the Communist Insurgency 1948-1957, the British deployed ‘inspectors of schools’ whose specialty were to inspect the Vernacular Chinese Schools by sitting at the back of any class-room and monitoring the teachers work. Surprisingly, the PDRM Special Branch on this aspect of political activity was diminished from the late 1980s onwards. It would be difficult to revive this specialised function of the PDRM again due to other priorities and constraints which have appeared since the 1990s.

    THIS IS ONE AREA OF SECURITY WHICH THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 NEGLECTED DUE TO SELF-INDULGENCE AND SELF-INTEREST.

    A few minutes ago, an Adun appeared on TV and alleged that the Superman comic which would have been distributed in our schools has Communistic contents.

    This reminded me of the advice of the late Tan Sri Dr C. C. Too the most senior Chinese official to the Federal Government and its expert on Anti-Communist Insurgency 1948-1992 who was also an expert on Psychological Warfare that even though the Malaysian Communists were defeated in the 1980s, Communism will return in another form.

    How true and telling were his words on Communism concerning our beloved Malaysia which is now highlighted by the Adun flipping the pages of the Superman comic.

As a born optimist, I dare say that each community has their historical, cultural and religious virtues which held them together from centuries past. Anything to do with the coming together of all Malaysians can only be attributed to politics of the Malaysian kind.

    As long as the incumbent Government is NORMAL AND NOT ROGUE, FAIR AND JUST to provide a livelihood for all, our beloved Malaysia will flow on with the rest. With the right Leadership, Malaysia maybe like Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan. As it is thanks to the wisdom, brilliance and courage of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side, Malaysia became one of the 4 most important small countries of the World like Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia since 9 May 2018. At the moment, we Malaysians can only crossed our fingers !

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON THE TWO WONGS and three Wongs will be a riot in Hong Kong.

    How many Malaysians noticed that the young Wong only looks like a Chinese but inside him he is NOT. Why ? Because NO DECENT CHINESE WORTH HIS RICE-BOWL WILL S…T ON HIS OWN DOORSTEP WHICH IS THE DISTINGUISHED UNIVERSITY OF MALAYA IN THIS CONTRIVED CAPER.

    There are many Chinese today in Malaysia who look Chinese but are not Chinese inside their minds and bodies.

    They have lost the cultural ballast of their forefathers who observed all the requisite Chinese beliefs and rituals in keeping with a Chinese.

    These Chinese outside – Western inside types of Chinese are actually WEAK-MINDED UNLIKE THEIR FORFATHERS WHO WERE STRONG AS A BUNCH OF BAMBOO. Because they are weak-minded and have NO MIND-SETS OF THEIR OWN, they are easily seduced by fellows like Lee Kuan Yew or those TAX FREE RM 2 INCORPORATED PLACES OF WORSHIP with self appointed holies which slipped seamlessly into their mental voids where their forefathers filled with traditional Chinese beliefs and rituals.

    This is the real situation today. This lot of misled young Chinese which we see in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia are NOT CHINESE, LEADERLESS, ARROGANT, WESTERNISED, AND BRASH.

    I keep bumping into them at restaurants, petrol stations and super-markets who would never give way to the elderly. At least the non-Chinese made me happy by their courtesies at these public places.

    I will always remember when my car was in trouble along the highway that the first person to help me was a young Indian and then a middle aged Malay. The Chinese would slow down their cars and wind down the windows to grin at me in the rain.

    And now these inconsiderate types of Chinese are augmented by young Chinese looking Chinese with NO CHINESE CULTURAL BALLAST WHO ARE GIVEN TO IGNORE THE CONSTITUTION, THE SOVEREIGNTY AND THE NATIONAL INTEREST OF OUR BELOVED MALSYSIA.

    ‘Something wrong somewhere’ which one ex-UMNO warlord said when he discovered I was no ennobled. The next moment he was welcoming a Singaporean lady to KL on both cheeks !

    The negative nature of the Star article on page 14 fully illustrates my contention written by a born and bred Wong in Malaysia who apparently after 50 years still did not see that our beloved Malaysia is UNIQUE IN HER DIVERSITY. The writer looks like a Chinese too !

    Like this how are we in our beloved Malaysia be one of the 4 important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland, Malaysia IF THE CHINESE LOOKING CHINESE HAVE NO MIND-SETS AND ARE NOT AWARE ABOUT THE COUNTRY THEY LIVE IN ?

    Brain-washing in another form is coming back to Malaysia from a different approach after the all-out frontal assault by Lee Kuan Yew since 1965.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Brain-washing of the Malaysian Chinese by Lee Kuan Yew actually failed because of the Constitution which strangely, he did not understand. And now our beloved Malaysia is facing the same with the connivance of the trouble-makers, detractors, morons, fellow travellers and opportunists.

    It is funny to think that we are living in an increasingly globalised, single world, that one day is set to be borderless. Nation states will only exist in name. Malaysia and Indonesia will be fused through social and economic interactions that are based upon shared traditions, for instance. Singapore will find itself to be the de facto capital of Southeast Asia, if not Asia. When borders come down, it will be a brave new world. Whatever governmental protection such as affirmative actions, will be rendered meaningless, when the rest of the world moves forward regardless. Artificial intelligence will set the basis of the global economic system soon. Those who are not prepared to take the bull by the horns, either because of certain idealistic thinking or a craving for a nostalgic past, will only be sadly left behind. How governments and parents prepare their citizens and children through daily rituals of education at school and at home, will dictate the results. Short-term thinking is never a good recipe. Personal grouses with one’s own past experience is not a good thing either. Especially those entrusted to lead, yes… those in whom the nation trust.

    For Malaysia, the compartmentalised ways of thinking are extremely visible. When I grew up in the west, it was almost a homogeneous society. Everyone just sort of goes about living the British way. But when I returned to Malaysia, I found people of all sorts pulling in different directions. Some are laid back and wish to be left alone in their meditative ways, some are extremely voracious and think of nothing daily but of ways to take on the world. Then there are those who think it is alright to steal money that is not theirs. Or spit on the street. I am not sure where this will take the country eventually, but it is interesting to see what pans out, and it is interesting to see what its leaders do on a daily basis… how they lead their people, what they say in public.

    A most misleading headline about an equally misleading article appeared this morning thus,

    ” THIS WONG DOES MAKE A RIGHT “.

    I like to point out that this Wong article can be faulted on just two points.

    First, not only the article written in a confused and emotional manner but also examples to bolster it were lifted from Western homogenous population countries which do not apply to our diverse population Malaysia.

    Concerning just the Chinese alone, there are more than 6 different types ranging from Hainanese, Hakkas, Hokkiens, Teochews, Foochows, Cantonese, Shanghainese, Muslim Chinese etc. Each of these clans behave and think differently from one another.

    Second, because of our diversity, we Malaysians live under the overall embrace of our revered Constitution. This has proven to be practical, doable and sustainable since 1957. Those who still openly attack one another do not understand or aware of the Constitution which is paramount and reigns supreme overall.

    Therefore, this wong article of two wongs do not make a right IS A NON-STARTER. In our beloved Malaysia we must always be considerate for the feelings of others and be humble. Inferiority or superiority complex is out for all politicians and small boys or girls.

    By all counts, this Wong boy should have picketed outside the gates of the Dewan Rakyat which is the proper forum and not at home, the UM where all were gathered in peace goodwill and harmony.

    And for all, one swallow does not make an Indian summer. Small boys and stupid fat little boys of no consequence or merit in this World of Meritocracy do not count.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. It seemed many Malaysians forget about our revered Constitution, our Sovereignty and our National Interest and behaved like loose cannons with no mind-sets.

    I fully support your comment which was expressed in a headline today,

    ” NO FOREIGN IDEOLOGIES IN SCHOOLS. PM; MALAYSIA IS CHINA’S FRIEND BUT BRI COMIC BOOK IN SCHOOLS INAPPROPRIATE.”

    To this day, some politicians still find it difficult to understand the meaning of the words, ” SOVEREIGNTY ” and ” NATIONAL INTEREST “.

    Because of the lack of understanding of these words which governs the independent status of a Nation in all its entirety, we have noticed the Rakyat’s assets were literally given away to Singapore ex gratis. From the 1962 Water Agreement right through to the HSR via the rocks, KTM giveaway etc. And our beloved Malaysia only got half an office building in Singapore at the very end.

    From the comic book caper to the Singapore Giveaways, not one iota of Malaysia’s Sovereignty and National Interest were considered.

    This display of an utter lack of consideration of our nationalism in the bosoms of those concerned. Some of them are not only ennobled but sworn to defend the Yang Di Pertuan Agong, the religion, the land and the Rakyat. I suppose when they did this they were down in the basement thinking of something else.

    Yet in the year 2019, 62 years after Merdeka, there are Malaysians who think in a COMPARTMENTALISED WAY without due consideration to the land of their birth and the struggles of their ancestors or forefathers.

    As I always said our beloved Malaysia’s peace, harmony and prosperity are balanced on a knife’s edge with the incumbent Government not only the referee but also the mechanic in the fine tuning the machinery of works in progress to make the country ticked like a Swiss cuckoo clock.

    This comic book caper came as a surprise to all and sundry because all were viewing the slogan Malaysia Baru with great expectations and without being tainted by foreign elements with indeterminate objectives.

    Trade and commerce is one thing. Foreign politics is another.

    Lee Kuan Yew spent a life-time by using Government resources to brain-washi the Malaysian Chinese and top-notch young Malay political aspirants with the best foreign advisers.

    For the latter, Lee Kuan Yew reserved the ISEAS Forum for them and then buttered them up the following morning with appropriate flatteries of their brilliance in the Singapore Straits Times. No Malaysian Chinese was ever invited apart from one or two camaraderie from across the Causeway. Hence today the Malaysian Chinese still react like Pavlov dogs whenever Lee Kuan Yew’s name is mentioned.

    Brainwashing of the young with foreign comic books is both effective and damaging to the psyche especially in Malaysia where every incumbent Government talked about Unity, Peace, Harmony and Prosperity. But hard-core elements do survive through the lackadaisical attitudes of different Government especially during 2004-2018.

    For example, how many Malaysians know that the gates of the Immigration at Johor Baru were wide open before every festive occasion for the supposedly Singaporeans to rush home without a check on their passports until 2000, I presume ?

    And the Immigration Department was not computerised until after the turn of the 21st Century. Such events could only have happened due to the lackadaisical attitude of the relevant authorities. Even today, we see smugglers running across the Thai-Malaysian border in broad daylight.

    It is the little things like these foreign comic book caper, the lackadaisical attitude of relevant authorities etc which snow-balled into a self-destruct weapon which could be lethal to an important emerging Nation which is our beloved Malaysia.

    A small country under the shadow of Hitler’s Germany, Switzerland during the Second World War kept their sanity, Sovereignty and National Interest and gave away what was considered irrelevant. An example was that the fully laden troop trains Of Nazi Germany were only permitted to pass through Switzerland deep at night to or from Italy via the St Gotthard Pass.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. No foreign comic books for our schools. Period. We do not build a Malaysia this Way which is not your Way or my Way.

    There are so many ordinary type of politicians in our beloved Malaysia these days. Anyone with the gift of the Gab considers himself or herself a politician to give advice on how to run the country.

    Politics if practised honourably and professionally is indeed a fine profession like business on the same scale of achievement.

    But the riches of our beloved Malaysia built up over the hard work and toil of 4 distinguished Prime Minister, the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad seduced their plain ordinary successors which came after them – 2004-2018.

    Their successors treated the riches of our beloved Malaysia as theirs to steal and own which rightly belonged to the hard work of the Rakyat for generations.

    When our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad stood down in October 2003, ( Lee Kuan Yew was already planning for a year on how to enslave our beloved Malaysia ) the total debt of Malaysia was only RM 350 Billion which zoomed up to RM 1 Trillion by 2018 with nothing substantial by way of infrastructural development for the Rakyat but only one expensive MRT which no one uses.

    The results of the period 2004-2018 showed that the Leadership during this horrible period was unfit for the job.

    Yet, many of the vocal bystanders today were silent then at the height of Kleptocracy. Of course, with the huge sums of stolen money now available to the Opposition, he or she who pays, calls the tune like the Pied Piper of Hamelin.

    All the noises generated daily do not produce tangible socio-economic results to benefit the Rakyat. Some still tried to play the Lee Kuan Yew cunningly contrived tune of “Malaysia for Malaysians”. As a lawyer, he should have known better that all rules and regulations are enshrined in the revered Constitution which has been tested time and time again.

    Malaysian Politics will be a great disappointment under the revered Constitution to the NGOs, the Reformists, the Religionists, the Rebels, the Rogues or what have you with the gift of the Gab.

    And what brought all these hot air into the firmament is the years of NEGLECT by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs to serve the Rakyat meaningfully and honestly. In short, nearly the whole lot were crooks. Thus,

    ” DR M: NEAR MIRACLE MALAYSIA NOT BANKRUPTED BY 1MDB ”

    Or enslaved by the Lee Kuan Yew creation, the TPPA/CPTPP to kill Malaysia/the Malays/SMEs and enslaved us forever. See how difficult it is to BREXIT !

    AND WHO ARE TO BE BLAMED FOR THE TREACHERY AND BETRAYAL OF PUBLIC TRUST 2004-2018 ? Your guess is as good as mine. Self denial is no cure for Kleptocracy.

    With an empty coffer, it is tough for the New and Incorruptible Government to immediately TURN ON THE TAP TO PUT THE COUNTRY BACK TO ITS FORMER RICH SELF IN A JIFFY.

    Time is required to build up our monetary reserves again which will be slow and difficult under the present World economic regime. But if all of the Rakyat put themselves to push the wheel, nothing is not impossible.

    With this monetary deficit in the political and socio-economic picture, the trouble-makers, the detractors, the morons, the loose cannons and the agitators are in full play on the unsuspecting public. Only a solid socio-economic recovery will put all these noise makers to the wall. This will come sooner rather than later under the New and Incorruptible Government.

    ” PM WARNS OF POSSIBLE TRADE SANCTIONS ON MALAYSIA ”

    As our beloved Malaysia, an independent and proud State since 9 May 2018 after throwing off the shackles of being a Singaporean Puppet under the BN Government 2004-2018, this is to be expected as we do not practise hypocrisy but fair play and justice with compassion.

    It is good very good that our beloved Malaysia is on the cusp of reaching another level of her Politics based on the revered Constitution.

    If the detractors, the troublemakers, the morons, the hypocrites, the loose cannons and the agitators think they can revised the revered Constitution, they are just wasting their time. And the Constitution had served our beloved Malaysia well since 1957. IT IS NOT THE CONSTITUIION BUT THE CROOKED DIGITS WHO MANNED THE SYSTEM 2004-2018 BROUGHT THE UNHAPPINESS AND THE DISSATISFACION.

    And what is troubling all concerned is the lack of liquidity or money in our financial System brought on by the Grand Theft of the Government coffers by the crooks 2004-2018. Vide. The World Bank, IMF and UN Annual Reports showed that between 2002 -2018 over RM 1 Trillion was siphoned out to overseas. Even a dead nobody could garner RM 2 Billion. How much do you expect his superiors to wallop ? This wanton rape and vandalism of our beloved Malaysia diminished the WEALTH OF ALL RAKYAT BY 30%-50% !

    Therefore, from all aspects, the onus falls upon the New and Incorruptible Government to catch these crooks and charge them in Court and retrieve all the stolen money even if this takes 100 years. As it is said that it does not matter whether a cat is black or white as long as it catches the mice.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENTS ON ‘LIM KIT SIANG AND THE KLEPTOCRATS.’

    To those who were curious and have a long memory, they would recall that I commented thus, on the then Opposition 1965-2018,

    1 IN 1997-1998 IF DSAI HAD TAKEN A HOLIDAY IN THE UNITED STATES, HE WOULD HAVE RETURNED AS THE HONOURABLE PRIME MINISTER. ONE EASY STEP.

    2. IN 2008, IF THE OPPOSITION HAD SORTED OUT THE 32 ADUNS BEFORE AND NOT AFTER THE 12TH GENERAL ELECTIONS, THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN IN PUTRAJAYA SINCE. THIS WOULD ACTUALLY COST THEM NO MONEY. ONE EASY STEP.

    3. IN 2013, IF THE OPPOSITION DECLARED A 100 FAST TO DEATH IN FULL VIEW OF THE INTERNATIONAL MEDIA, THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN IN PUTRAJAYA THEREAFTER. ONE EASY STEP.

    4. IN 2018, I SUGGESTED THE OPPOSITION TO JOIN BN FOR POWER BUT THEY IGNORED THIS AND JOINED OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WHICH IS EVEN FAR BETTER.

    5. IN 2019, I HIGHLIGHTED THAT THE OVER 2 MILLION RECALCITRANT BANKRUPTS AND THEIR RELATIVES WILL BE THE FINEST WEAPON EITHER FOR THE HARAPAN OR THE OPPOSITION FOR THE 15TH GENERAL ELECTION. Forewarned is forearmed.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem with our Malaysian style Democracy.

  224. mubarakchan Oct 21,2019 6:32 PM

    Tun,

    ADDENDUM TO “LIM KIT SIANG AND THE KLEPTOCRATS”.

    It is obvious to all that the Opposition has a lot of money for the next 15th General Election to save themselves and their money.

    Therefore with the OPEN KNOWLEDGE THAT THERE ARE OVER 2 MILLION RECALCITRANT BANKRUPTS AND THEIR RELATIVES WHO ONLY LIVE IN THE TOWNS, IT IS WORTHWHILE FOR THE OPPOSITION TO SPEND AT LEAST A MINIMUM OF RM 1 BILLION TO SWING THESE VITAL BANKRUPT VOTES IN THEIR FAVOUR. To counter this, the Harapan has to spend more than RM 1 Billion which may not succeed.

    Hence, it is far cheaper if not free for the Minister of Law PMO YB Dato Liew Vui Kong to revise the bungled Bankruptcy Act 1967 which is archaic and Victorian, completely like that in Singapore, Hong Kong, Britain and Australia to BEAT THE OPPOSITION AT THE NEXT 15TH GENERAL ELECTIONS NOW RATHER THAN BE BOOTED OUT OF OFFICE BY THE OPPOSITION USING THE FINEST WEAPON AVAILABLE WHICH IS THE RECALCITRANT BANKURPTS AND THEIR RELATIVES NUMBERING OVER 2 MILLIONS IN THE TOWNS.

    Forewarned is forearmed which fits in and in synch with LIM KIT SIANG’S WARNING ON THE KLEPTOCRATS WHICH TRANSLATES INTO A WIN FOR THE OPPOSITION AT THE NEXT 15TH GENERAL ELECTIONS. This is the big game with the big moves.

    The Destiny of our beloved Malaysia, the Rakyat, the Harapan and the Opposition is in the hands of the Minister of Law PMO YB Dato Liew Vui Kong of Sabah. He can either break all of us or make all of us.

    Vide. The Star. Letter to the Editor. 25 June 2018.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Forewarned is Forearmed.
    the finest weapon for either side, the Harapan or the Opposition is the over 2 Million recalcitrant bankrupts and their relatives. It’s like the Sword of Damocles which dangles over the 15th General Election. Acheh !

    ADDENDUM TO MY PREVIOUS COMMENT ” KLEPTOCRACY BY LIM KIT SIANG.”

    How many Harapan supporters realise that our YB Dato Liew, the Minister of Law PMO from Sabah holds the destiny of the New and Incorruptoble Government IN HIS HANDS. He could make or break the Harapan Government at the next 15th General Elections. How ?

    If YB Minister Liew updates the Bankruptcy Act 1967 to the standards of Singapore, Hong Kong, Britain and Australia, over 1.8 Million Bankrupts and relatives living in the towns of Peninsula Malaysia will vote for Harapan.

    If YB Minister Liew just does nothing like his predecessor the fake Minister of Law PMO, over 1.8 Million Bankrupts and their relativs WILL VOTE FOR THE OPPOSITION.

    IT IS WELL-KNOWN THE HARAPAN IS STRONG IN THE TOWNS. IF THIS STRENGTH IS BROKEN BY THE INACTION OF THE MINISTER OF LAW PMO YB DATO LIEW, THEN THE MIGHT OF THE OVER 1.8 MILLION VOTES OF THE BANKRUPTS AND THEIR RELATIVES ARE BOUND TO BE FOR THE OPPOSITION. This will be the end of HARAPAN forever.

    This is Hobson’s Choice for the Minister of Law PMO YB Dato Liew. THE DESTINY OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND THE HARAPAN IS IN HIS HANDS.

    THE BANKRUPTS AND THEIR RELATIVES OF OVER 1.8 MILLION VOTES AT THE 15TH GENERAL ELECTIONS IS THE FINEST WEAPON IN THE HANDS OF THE OPPOSITION TO WIN OR HARAPAN’s. Do nothing with the up-dating and complete revision of the bungled Bankruptcy Act 1967, OPPOSITION WINS. Do what is due to the Bankrupts by being like Singapore, Hong Kong, Britain and Australia, HARAPAN WINS. The choice is yours, Ladies and Gentlemen.

    Bankrupts Destiny is now linked with HARAPAN. IF UNWANTED, THE OPPOSITION WINS IN THE 15TH GENERAL ELECTIONS. The finest weapon ever !

    ADDENDUM TO MY PREVIOUS COMMENT ON ‘KLEPTOCRACY’ BY LIM KIT SIANG.

    If the crooks of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs are permitted to be free and not be prosecuted, these will serve as the role models for the rest of the country.

    Because of these poor moral, ethic, propriety and standard icons, our beloved Malaysia is no better than the 180th country of the World in the United Nations given our fantastic strategic geo-political location, the wonderful peoples from the 3 ancient civilizations and more, and the bountiful natural resources. Like this our beloved Malaysia becomes like a 3rd Generation rich man’s son who squandered all of his ancestors hard and honest work or a repeat of a South American story.

    To strengthen the spine or backbone of the Harapan Government it is the paramount duty for the Minister of Law PMO Dato Liew to ensure that all the relevant Laws like the Trustees Act 1949. the Companies Act 1965 and the all important Bankruptcy Act 1967 which was bungled by the fake BN Minister of Law PMO and has over 600,000 bankrupts at the next 15th GE and at least another 600,000 relations 0r 1.2 Million votes TO VOTE AGAINST THE HARAPAN GOVERNMENT IF INSTIGATED BY THE OPPOSITION WHICH IS CERTAIN.

    It is important that our Honourable Minister of Law from Sabah notes that these urbanised Bankrupts with their relatives over 1.2 Million are incarcerated in the key towns of the Peninsula. THEIR VOTES WILL DEFINITELY BE AGAINST THE HARAPAN GOVERNMENT OR FOR THE HARAPAN DEPENDENT ON THE WILL OF THE MINISTER OF LAW PMO FROM SABAH.

    Recently a perfunctory statement prepared by another, read in the Deqan Rakyat by YB Datuk Liew on the assurance for the incarcerated Bankrupts will not do. It was only LIP-SERVICE. The meat is in the complete revision and updating like Singapore, Hong Kong, Britain, Australia, of the bungled Bankruptcy Law as misled by the fake Minister of Law PMO BN Government 2004-2018. Vide. The Star. Letter to the Editor. 25 June 2018

    THE FUTURE OF THE HARAPAN GOVERNMENT IN THE 15TH GENERAL ELECTIONS LIES IN THE HANDS OF THE MINISTER OF LAW PMO, DATUK LIEW FROM SABAH BEING THE UPDATING AND REVISION LIKE SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, BRITAIN, AUSTRALIA OF THE BUNGLED BANKRUPTCY ACT 1967 BY THE FAKE BN MINISTER OF LAW PMO AND THE OVER 1.2 MILLION BANKRUPTS AND THEIR RELATIVED IN THE URBAN AREAS OF PENINSULA MALAYSIA. Sic Lim Kit Siang. Vide. The Star. Letter to the Editor. 25 June 2018.

    And of course, YB Datuk Liew has the paramount duty to see all the BN crooks are caught and jailed and the stolen money returned even if it takes 100 years.

    YB Datuk Liew now holds the destiny of the Harapan Government in both his hands. I am certain he will play the role so important for the future and destiny of the Harapan Government to rule for the next 50 years.

    JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED. YB Datuk Liew the most important Minister in the New and Incorruptible Government next to the Prime Minister our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    The following comment by Lim Kit Siang, the next most senior politician in the Kingdom, is one of the very few which I concur with him thus,

    ” KLEPTOCRATS WILL ESCAPE JUSTICE IF HARAPAN DISMANTLED. ”

    On this score, I have commented many times that I hope the New and Incorruptible Government as led by you with DSAI and the Team by your side will continue to rule for the next 50 years. This is one main factor which the Rule of Law must prevail.

    This factor will be subjected to all sorts of denouement if any other type of Government comes into Power.

    As it is, there have been minor cases which seemed to have been lost in the wash in which time is of no essence.

    I am referring to the prosecution of the CEO of Sime Darby concerning the Second Bankruptcy of 2010, the crooks who were involved in the printing of the faulty new Malaysian banknotes in Australia, the share-rigger who rigged his own company’s shares over 200 times etc.

    If these small crooks can delay justice to be served, what do we expect of the super-crooks who stole billions of ringgits belonging to the Rakyat from Government coffers ?

    Hence, it is imperative for the Harapan Government to be around to see that Justice is done and served.

    But there is also another side to this coin of Malaysian fables and foibles.

    This is the numerous LOOSE CANNONS WHICH SEEM TO FIRE WITHOUT REASON OR TO SELF-DESTRUCT.

    These so-called reformist, religionists, rebels, rogues or what have you, are embedded in the Malaysian Political milieu. Most of these loose cannons are related to the incumbent Government. They were used to fire ad infinitum when in the Opposition but they should realise that they are now part of our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and his Team. Discipline with conformity to the rules of the political game is paramount to make a Political satrap works.

    Of course LKS is correct in his judgement and comment arising from his long association with both Politics and the Malaysian Law. Hence, he now has a Vision of sorts.

    Therefore, for all the Rakyat, it pays for the Harapan Government to be around until all the crooks are caught and put in jail and all the stolen money is recovered even if this takes 100 years. No Houdini acts for crooks with the stolen money belonging to the Rakyat.

    Law and Justice must prevail if we are going to build up something meaningful that our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team have brought us – MALAYSIA BEING ONE OF THE 4 MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD – since 9 May 2018. Where are you Singapore ?

    The choice is yours dear Rakyat, the reformists, the religionists, rebels, rogues or whatever. You either sleep in the same bed with the crooks or with the angels. The choice is yours to feather your own bed and beautiful dreams.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. In you we ALL TRUST. Keep smiling in your light colour suit surrounded by men in black so that the good hormones flow ! Acheh !

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

    There are too many highly sensitive comments concerning race and religion in the public media these days. From experience, no one gains anything as a result. These protagonists do not realise that politics and socio-economics are like the fingers of a hand, linked together always. Politics will not produce the rice bowl or jobs. Socio-economics will not produce the same also without the participation of meaningful politics.

    Recent events in Malaysia have shown that by going for all out politics, our finely balanced societal structure has become imbalance which we all knew as due to the financial rapine and vandal ways of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    The following headlines show this is not the time for political frivolity but the gathering of all the Rakyat in unity in preparation for any external crisis which may fall upon us in the near future and to push forward to recover what our beloved Malaysia had lost through thefts by her elected representatives.

    The headlines thus ,

    ” CHINA’S GROWTH WEAKENS FURTHER TO 6.0% IN 3RD QUARTER. ”

    ” TRADE WAR CHOKES CHINA AS GROWTH HITS NEW LOW.”

    ” CHINA THE WINNER IN US-EU TRADE, WARNS FRANCE. ”

    ” SINGAPORE EXPORTS CONTINUE SLIDE FOR SEVENTH STRAIGHT MONTH.”

    China will always be able to take care of itself.

    But Singapore, a creation of Lee Kuan Yew based on his faulty Model of politics and socio-economics may be showing signs of failure. Why ?

    Without much ado, Lee Kuan Yew placed his faith in Uncle Sam and the Cold War 1948-1989. This approach brought Singapore rich returns from Uncle Sam’s largesse. But with the ending of the Cold War 1948-1989, Singapore lost her monopolistic place in the Questionable and the Unmentionable Trades of the Cold War to the BRICS which took over beginning 1990. But Lee Kuan Yew kept to his conventional ideas and ways in his planning for the future of Singapore and his legacy for his inheritors.

    Arising from the urgency of producing a plan due to the pressure of the loss of his Cold War Trades which probably accrued to a huge reserve of US 500 Billions by 1989, Lee Kuan Yew moved 4 Initiatives eg. Temasek, FT imports, 2 casinos and the Malaysia/Malays/SMEs Killer, the TPPA/CPTPP which all failed by 2019.

    The failure to fill the void of 2%-3% GDP left vacant by the Questionable and Unmentionable Cold War Trades 1948-1989 which were hijacked by the BRICS with Uncle Sam’s blessing, may now be reflected in the GDP as collated by her overall activities.

    With Uncle Sam’s hegemonic spiel 1990, ” Globalization. Free Trade, Human Rights.”, Singapore was the sole casualty.

    With the revocation of Uncle Sam’s hegemonic spiel 2017 by Trump, Singapore also is a casualty.

    These two events clearly illustrate the failure of Lee Kuan Yew’s political and socio-economic Model for Singapore and his inheritors. The failure for his Model to provide a continuing source of revenue for Singapore like those Cold War Trades 1948-1989.

    His failure to invest in GOLD with the proceeds from Singapore’s Cold War Trades was the cause of the dilemma faced by Singapore today because for a tiny state to follow the socio-economic conventions of large countries does not amount to much in the present World of bigger the better. To add further to the dilemma of how to sustain the position of Singapore as a 1st World country always, the pressure becomes acute.

    The historical symbiosis between Singapore and Malaysia does not amount to much. But if our beloved Malaysia is enslaved via Lee Kuan Yew’s creation, the Malaysia/Malays/SME Killer, TPPA/CPTPP, then it is a different matter. He tried his hardest but failed to achieve his goal. Man proposes. God disposes.

    Lee Kuan Yew missed the best alternative to the Cold War Trades which was GOLD.

    Now, Singapore has the choice of confederating with the United Kingdom. Has her Leadership the gumption, courage, wisdom and vision to do so ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Our beloved Malaysia’s political and socio-economic Model works. But it’s failings are due to the rogue digits which manned it from top to bottom.

    Interesting times begat interesting headlines.

    Even if our World is one big slumber room, there will always be recalcitrants who will stir things up according to their own thoughts and agendas. There is no necessity to name names. And yet at the end of the day, the winners become losers, and the losers winners. Such is the Way of the World for you and me.

    You would agree both of us have seen it all.

    Take the time when I was born in the Thirties. If we turn on any page of a newspaper, in there we would see the conquering of weak nations by the strong. Pictures of death and destruction. Bombs falling from the World’s latest weapon for War – the propeller aeroplane and the tank.

    But the death and destruction were the same as of centuries ago up to the present day – the weak being bullied by the strong. When this barbaric instinct of Humankind will end ? No one really knows. Is it the Power ? Or is it the Money ? Or both ? Again no one really knows.

    At home, we have ennobled personalities with impeccable backgrounds and wealth at the very top of Society suddenly go bonkers by grabbing the hard-earned Wealth of the Rakyat. WAS THERE A SATAN AROUND ? Not only that, these privileged people collected 10,000 Rolex apart from other brands and accessories as well.

    How could this be when their lush abodes were usually sited less than one kilometre from the abodes of the poor ? Or the same would spout forth platitudes of raising the poor from poverty if given the chance to speak at a forum.

    You and me have noticed all these incongruous events in our lifetimes. Yet there is a headline this morning from a supreme Malaysian idealist, thus…

    ” SO MUCH HAS HAPPEND IN THE PAST COUPLE OF WEEKS THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE CERTAINTY IN MALAYSIAN POLITIC- NOTHING IS CERTAIN. ”

    I presume the writer is the finest idealist in the Kingdom. In Life, as we all know that nothing is certain. A person may drop dead any moment anywhere in this World unless it is the headless chicken crossing the street.

    With 3 different communities from 3 different ancient civilisations and many others as well, we should expect that there will be politics in conflict all the time with the incumbent Government as the referee in attendance.

    The style of democracy as practised in Malaysia with some limitations has always given rise to the freedom of speech if the PDRM permits. Vulgarities from all parties is the norm in the creation of Malaysian political speeches. Fortunately, only my children and grand-children are good at Bahasa Melayu !

    I read the writer’s comment on the state of Malaysian Politics today.

    I dare say he will be very disappointed with the state of political affairs in the citadel of Freedom, the United States where people in their homes could be shot dead by a policeman and the President threatened with impeachment or in the Mother of all Parliaments, the United Kingdom, the Houses of Parliament where there are as many housewives as gentlemen in their black Saville Row suits.

    Surprisingly, and it is obvious that the writer may not be conversant in Bahasa Melayu as my children and grand-children. He missed the point that the eloquent speeches at the Malay Dignity Congress have always been the same from time immemorial – Nothing of the blood-thirsty kind.

    Hence, I always mentioned that the good Royal Sultans from the days of old to the present day played a magnificent and significant role in keeping the peace, the harmony and the prosperity in our beloved Malaysia always.

    Naturally, this significant history of the past led to the present with the revered Constitution which provides a guidance of sorts.

    Social Contract or no Social Contract is hypothetical concerning the conduct of human affairs. It is the every day practice of social intercourse amongst peoples which are important.

    And what is the glue or lubricant which made our beloved Malaysia ticked so well all the time like a clock made in Switzerland ? IT WAS THE MONEY FROM A WELL MANAGED ECONOMY WHICH WAS OVERLORDED BY A FAIR AND JUST GOVERNMENT FROM 1957-2003.

    All Malaysians were so used to the easy Life-style and comfort provided by the BN Governments 1957-2003 steered by the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad that WE THE RAKYAT FORGOT THAT PRIME MINISTERS AND GOVERNMENTS COULD TURN ROGUE AGAINST THE RAKYAT’S INTERESTS !

    This unexpected turn of events when the Prime Minister, the Government and its elite and GLCs/SOEs turned ROGUE against our beloved Malaysia’s SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST, AND THE HAPLESS RAKYAT did really happen from 2004-2018 which is now history. History is the finest arbiter of the Truth. Unless the dear writer is from Mars.

    The writer mentioned he did not feel a thing with our beloved Malaysia’s GDP at 4%. I would not argue with his observation in 2019. I do not feel it too. But if the writer was around in the 1990s when our beloved Malaysia’s GDP was at a fizzy 7%, he would certainly feel it with certainty !

    Why our beloved Malaysia’s GDP is now at 4% ?

    It was the titanic KLEPTOCRACY which was worse than the Rape of the Sabine women of ancient Rome, stupid !

    Therefore, kudos to the New and Incorruptible Government which could keep the GDP above 4%. For comparison, Singapore the sole casualty of Uncle Sam’s hegemonic spiel, ” Globalization. Free Trade. Human Rights.’ could only touch 0.9% GDP.

    Present events must always be balanced with the tragedy of 13 May 1969. THE MAIN CAUSE (AMONGST MANY OTHERS) OF THIS TRAGEDY WAS THE GOVERNMENT’S POLICY TO KEEP THE COLONIAL CURRENCY BOARD OF MALAYA, SINGAPORE, SARAWAK, NORTH BORNEO AND BRUNEI.

    The Board dictated that the country only spent what it earned. There was no liquidity in the system. The rich got richer. The poor got poorer. At the material time, the British owned 70% of the best assets. The Chinese 25% of the 3rd rate with a few towkays. The Malays just 2%. A second factor was because of this, there were no OD. credit cards, house, cars or business loans etc. All my newly graduated Malay and non-Malay friends suffered. Third, there were riots in Penang in 1967 because of the imposition of custom duties. Fourth, there was tremendous political agitation by Lee Kuan Yew and his team in Malaysia 1963-1965 which left a political party on Malaysian soil. Fifth, violent street demonstrations all over in Kuala Lumpur before and after the General Elections. Sixth. the President of the MCA made the foolhardy decision to pull out of the Alliance on a pique at 2.30 pm on 13 May 1969 – this was the trigger. He was back in the Alliance by 10 p.m. It was far too late on that fateful day.

    The writer’s work was beautifully crafter but do not stand to scrutiny within Malaysian historical context or anywhere else in the today’s World of the citadel of Freedom, the United States or the Mother of all Parliaments in London. The latter is still trying to sort out the NHS since 1949 !

    My honest comment is that the writer’s idealism for our beloved Malaysia to which we all subscribe is exactly like that propounded by my Malaysian Cambridge University friend in the 1960s ! It is not new but emotionally attractive.

    Hence, Malaysian Politics like politics anywhere in the World will be fraught with UNCERTAINTIES ! That’s Politics for you and me, Sir !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Even the Rambothams of Hong Kong now want DEMOCRACY AND FREEDOM which they did not demand in 1984 when ruled by the British. How to turn the clock back when they were meek and mild ? It is Politics again Tun for you and me. History is the finest arbiter of the Truth. Acheh !

    ADDENDUM to my previous comment on Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore’s lack of Singaporean geniuses.

    Lee Kuan Yew prided himself as a genius of sorts but as history is the finest arbiter of the Truth, he is now found to be wanting in many aspects in comparison to our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, a humble person who never boasted about himself or his achievements.

    Tun is not only a role model and an icon but now a towering giant without a peer overshadowing the failed Policies of Lee Kuan Yew who looked down on all but himself.

    Lee Kuan Yew brought today’s pain and suffering in Singapore even Singapore has bountiful monetary reserves husbanded from Uncle Sam’s largesse during the Cold War 1948-1989. But as we all know, money does not buy happiness or LIFE. Man proposes. God disposes.

    The final result of Lee Kuan Yew’s 1972 Two Child Family Policy today is Singapore has only 900,000 male Chinese aged 21-51 which is less than the population of one single Shanghai precinct. How to produce Singaporean geniuses by this lack of human resources contribution via democracy if any ?

    From zero base and as at 13 May 1969 when the Malays only owned 2% of the Malaysian economy, the British 70% of the best and the Chinese 25% of the third rate with a handful of tycoons, our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad 1981-2003, could create single-handedly the urbanised 6 million families of the Malay Middle Income Group which jives the 6 million famillies non-Malay Middle Income Group to provide political stability ballast and economic progress for all the Rakyat. From this dynamic milieu, Malaysian geniuses are born and not made, dozens of them if not more given the proper guidance and the wherewithal. This is what our Malaysian Democracy had been and should be for all time.

    But our beloved Malaysia’s biggest hiccup was when the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 ruled with its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    This period 2004-2018 of the corrupt BN Government could be described as a complete shamble in a barren landscape financially raped dry of money and talent compounded by vandalism ad infinitum. The Rakyat could only watch such wanton acts with despair for 14 long years 2004-2018 until ‘Man proposes. God disposes.’ the whole crooked BN gang was ousted by the wisdom, brilliance and courage of our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side on 9 May 2018.

    During this horrific period, 2004-2018, the corrupt BN Government DID NOT EXPAND OR ENHANCE THE 6 MILLION FAMILLIES OF THE MALAY MIDDLE INCOME GROUP WHICH JIVES WITH THE 6 MILLION FAMILLIES OF THE NON-MALAY MIDDLE INCOME GROUP – even though the price of oil spiked US$ 110 per barrel a couple of times. To where did the riches of our beloved Malaysia go ?

    Without any forward planning by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 when economic times were good, now when times are bad, WE THE RAKYAT SUFFER FOR THE NEGLECT AND COMPASSIONLESS WAYS OF THE CROOKED BN GOVERNMENT !

    Even though our beloved Malaysia is poor because all the Rakyat’s money were stolen by the BN crooks who ALL HAVE BILLIONS OF RINGGITS IN THEIR OVERSEAS ACCOUNTS, ( deceased nobody died with RM 2 Billion assets ) we are proud and stand tall as a Nation of diverse communities who have come a long way not only from 1957 but many hundreds of years before this. THIS WE MUST NEVER FORGET !

    OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WILL BE RESILIENT AND ENDURE FOR A BETTER FUTURE FOR ALL THE RAKYAT. NO MORE. NO LESS. No stupid little fat boys of no merit or consequence will ever upset us.

    As I said many times before that the incumbent New and Incorruptible Government must retrieve ALL THE STOLEN MONEY EVEN IF THIS TAKES 100 YEARS.

    Our compassion should be expressed towards the victims, being the Rakyat, AND NOT TOWARDS THE BN CROOKS WHO SHOULD BE CAUGHT, CHARGED IN COURT AND GIVEN 10 STROKES OF THE ROTAN. These BN crooks were not poor but were ennobled and multi-millionaires when they stole the Rakyat’s hard-earned money from sweat, toil, blood and tears WITHOUT COMPASSION.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Let us see you in your light colour suit surrounded by men in black. Keep smiling always to permit the good hormones to flow. In you, we all TRUST. Acheh.

    Tun

    Congratulations and best wishes to Dr Serena Nik Zainal and her team at the Cambridge University’s Medical Genetics Dept. and the Medical Research Council Cancer Unit for winning the Dr Josef Steiner Prize for cancer research.

    There are many Malaysian geniuses who are brilliant and overseas.

    Geniuses are born and not made.

    In 1972, Lee Kuan Yew implemented his 2 Child Family Policy 1972-1984 with the focus on producing Singaporean geniuses. This Lee Kuan Yew Policy became a monumental failure with no Singaporean geniuses produced to this very day. What we now see are only bland looking fellows.

    WITHOUT A POLICY OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD DURING HIS 22 YEAR ADMINISTRATION 1981-2003 PRODUCED MANY MALAYSIAN GENIUSES. Dr Serena Nik Zainal is one of them. Where are you Singapore ?

    Not only that, when Lee Kuan Yew discovered that Christ’s College, Cambridge University was the best, he blocked the Malaysians by assuring a place for a Government backed Singaporean every year since the 1970s. Still, no Singaporean geniuses were produced by Singapore or Christ’s College, Cambridge. Our Dato Seri Sharil Redzuan is Christ’s College alumnus which explains.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem with our Malaysian geniuses who are born and not made by Government Policies or diktat unlike Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore which produced NO SINGAPOREAN GENIUSES with Singapore Government’s promotion and enthusiasm.

    Our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad being a top-class scientist understood the dynamics of genetics and broadened the demographic base by creating single-handedly the 6 million families Malay Middle Income Group which also brought up the 6 million families non-Malay Income Group. With this genetics base and from the human milieu, we not only have Dato Seri Sharil Redzuan but also Dr Serena Nik Zainal amongst many others recognised as Malaysian geniuses who researched overseas. Hats off to Charles Darwin (1850) of Christ’s College, Cambridge.

    Tun

    The most significant headline today concerns the bankruptcies of hundreds of thousands of the young and the healthy Malaysians in the prime of Life. At least, 250,00 young Malays are involved. That’s many !

    The latest statistics show that an additional 80,000 Malaysians were bankrupted between 2015 till August 2018. Questions have been raised by Aduns in the Dewan Rakyat about this.

    The facts are as follows :-

    1. There were 3 Ministers of Law in the PMO under the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    The first 2 Law Ministers did absolutely nothing during their tenure.

    The third and last misled the Rakyat by announcing that the Bankruptcy Law of 1967 was revised. What this ineffective Law Minister did was to attached the REVISED PORTION TO THE OLD which was UNREVISED TO CAUSE THE ENTRAPEMENT OF OVER 600,000 BANKRUPTS WHICH ARE PUNISHED BY THE OLD AND UNREVISED LAW – a Law which one writer to The Star Editor in June 2018 alleged – AS CRUEL AND VICTORIAN UNLIKE THE UP-DATED SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, UK AND AUSTRALIAN BANKRUPTCY LAW WHICH GIVES BANKRUPTS A SECOND CHANCE.

    Not only that the Writer of the Letter to The Star Editor 25 June 2018 ALSO ALLEGED THAT FINANCIAL INTERESTS LIKE BANKS AND SHARE-BROKERS INFLUENCED THE INEFFECTIVE BN MINISTER OF LAW TO DO NOTHING WITH THE INCARCERATED BANKRUPTS WHO WILL BE INCARCERATED FOR LIFE UNDER THE OLD BANKRUPTCY ACT OF 1967. This is CRUEL CORRUPTION WITHOUT GIVING THE BANKURPTS A SECOND CHANCE UNLIKE SINGAPOE, HONG KONG, UK AND AUSTRALIA. in a situation where there are over 350,000 young Malaysian bankrupts.

    This situation effectively removed them from any worthwhile economic activity for LIFE according to the unrevised Bankruptcy Act 1967 which is still in operation.

    As a result, the INEFFECTIVE BN MINISTER OF LAW MISLED THE RAKYAT AND THE BANKRUPTS THAT THE NEW LAW CAME INTO EFFECT IN OCTOBER 2017. The fact is the whole lot of over 600,000 bankrupts are still incarcerated by the old Law BUT THE NEW LAW 2017 WHICH IS ATTACHED TO THE OLD LAW 1967 BEGAN without any BANKRUPT ! Vide The Star. Letter to the Editor 25 June 2018.

    Until Justice is done to the over 600,000 bankrupts like in Singapore, Hong Kong, UK and Australia where bankrupts are given a second chance, these bankrupts will be incarcerated forever as BANKRUPTS.

    Recently, the 4th Minister of Law just read out a comment prepared by someone else that the “NEW” Bankruptcy Act 2017 takes care of the bankrupts. TRUE BUT ONLY THOSE WHO BECAME BANKRUPTS AFTER OCTOBER 2017. WHAT ABOUT THE OVER 600,000 BANKRUPTS INCARCERATED BY INJUSTICE OF THE OLD LAW AND CORRUPTION BY THE FINANCIAL INTERESTS TO PUNISH THEM FOR LIFE ?

    Even the 1982 Reform Marriage Act recognised that all marriages before this date were recognised as LEGAL. WHY SHOULD THE OLD/NEW BANKRUPTCY ACT 2017 BE ANY DIFFERENT.

    WHY THE OVER 600,000 BANKRUPTS BEFORE OCTOBER 2017 ARE NOT RECOGNISED ?
    And the revised Bankruptcy Act 2017 began with NO BANKRUPT ? What sort of Justice is this in our beloved Malaysia ?

    THE NEW MINISTER OF LAW HAS CREATED A HUGE TIME BOMB AGAINST OWN INCUMBENT GOVERNMENT BY HIS PERFUNCTORY AND SUPERFLUOUS COMMENT ON THE BANKRUPTCY LAW IN THE DEWAN RAKYAT RECENTLY.

    THE NEW MINISTER MIGHT NOT BE AWARE THAT THIS OVER 600,000 BANKRUPTS ARE

    1) Urbanised.

    2) IF the bungled revised Bankruptcy Act 2017 is not REVISED BEFORE THE NEXT GE, THESE OVER 600,000 URBANISED BANKRUPTS BY THE NEXT 15TH GENERAL ELECTION ARE BOUND TO BE INSTIGATED BY THE OPPOSITION TO VOTE AGAINST THE HARAPAN GOVERNMENT. And this is a huge block of urban votes in 2022.

    3. IT PAYS FOR THE MINISTER OF LAW PMO TO TAKE NOTE OF THE INJUSTICE NOW SERVED ON THE OVER 600,000 BANKRUPTS AND BRING UP TO DATE THIS BUNGLED BANKRUPTCY LAW OF MALAYSIA IN LINE WITH THOSE IN SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, UK AND AUSTRALIA BY GIVING ALL BANKRUPTS A SECOND CHANCE AND NOT TREAT THEM LIKE PRISONERS FOR LIFE BECAUSE FINANCIAL INTERESTS WANT TO BULLY THEM. Vide. The Star. Letter to the Editor 25 June 2018.

    4. Media reported that some officials assured the over 600,000 bankrupts that the incumbent Government will help them. THE ONLY WAY THE INCUMBENT GOVERNMENT CAN HELP THE INCARCERATED BANKRUPTS IS TO BRING THE BUNGLED BANKRUPTCY ACT 2017 UP TO DATE AND GIVE THE BANKRUPTS A SECOND CHANCE LIKE IN SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, UK AND AUSTRALIA. There is no other WAY.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. In this case of the bungled Bankruptcy Act 1967 by the ineffective BN Minister of Law PMO, IT IS A GREAT SHAME THAT IN THIS RELIGIOUS LAND, THE BN MINISTER HAD NO COMPASSION TO UP DATE THE BANKRUPTCY LAW LIKE SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, UK AND AUSTRALIA WHICH ALL HAD THE COMPASSION WITH JUSTICE TOWARDS THE DISADVANTAGED BANKRUPTS CAUSED BY THEIR MISTAKES – THE BANKRUPTS TO GIVE THEM A SECOND CHANCE,

    Let us hope this incumbent and religious Minister of Law PMO from Sabah will now realise it is NOT ONLY JUSTICE BUT COMPASSION DO PLAY A PART IN THE PEACE, HARMONY AND PROSPERITY OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA. Acheh !

  233. mubarakchan Oct 18,2019 12:38 AM

    Tun

    For TWIN PEAKS. Do I need to say more ? Our beloved Malaysia is in shambles when we begin to count the Malay elite. There are only 3 left being Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin and Dato Seri Sharil Redzuan of Khazanah with novices like Dato Seri Azmin and SADDIQ in the wings.

    In a country like Malaysia, troupes of Malay elites are required to lead the show at all levels and produce results. What we now have is a bombed out landscape barren of Malay elite. But 3 Generations of Malay elite through attrition by self-indulgence and self-immolation from the days of the NEP 1970 to 2018 disappeared in the wash at their prime age. And they have another 40 – 50 years to go twiddling their thumbs not contributing anything.

    For example, it was alleged that these elites nodded their heads in Langkawi every morning when our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad exhorted them. It was like he was on the 88th Floor and they were down in the basement with extraneous thoughts. The next moment all their enterprises collapsed.

    It is impossible for the non-Malay elite to do anything and progress without working with the Malay elite in whatever the enterprise because of our revered Constitution. I knew most of the Malay elite too.

    The task of creating a credible force of Malay elite is more important than money in the Government coffers. Money we can print but the elite are BORN AND NOT MADE ! That’s our beloved Malaysia’s problem

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    I just don’t understand how Malaysia’s third-generation Chinese community, if they were a homogeneous group, with all the information that they have online and offline, can be so unpatriotic to the country of their birth? The government since independence has given the community so much freedom to lead the life of their own choice, practice their beliefs unhindered,and even taught in their mother tongue at school. Chinese-owned businesses had never been nationalised, indeed flourish to this day. Ninety-five percent of the country’s private sector, and practically hundred percent of the key sectors, are in their hand. The Bumiputeras are not even complaining even though they form more than sixty percent of the country’s population. The only one complaining is Tun. In fact, Malay opposition parties would only complain because they have lost the rent-seeking opportunity of yesteryears. Once Tun is no longer around, I cannot see any Malay leader continuing his constant pestering of the Malay community to enter the field as legitimate businessmen.

    Without Tun’s pestering, it will be business as usual for the Malays. Sleep.

  235. mubarakchan Oct 17,2019 11:55 AM

    Tun

    First, a matter which has been lingering around for a few months.

    This is the bewilderment of reputable Civil Servants now being appointed and charged with the responsibilities of making money honestly and cleanly in the huge Malay Trust Fund undertakings known as FELDA and LTAT.

    Second, there are two sides to this equation of administrating these Funds for them to make money.

    This is a tough assignment in a country which is now overcrowded but with a shortage of public funds due to the total rapine and vandal ways of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite, the GLCs/SOEs.

    And all the theft of public trust funds were done by clean-shaven crooks in bush jackets. Have you noticed, Tun ?

    Third, to ease the bewilderment of those now in charge of both FELDA and LTAT, first to clean up the kleptocratic mess and second to make money for the Beneficiaries being the long suffering settlers and their descendants and the deserving military pensioner, I propose that both these Trust Funds venture in a small way first into the abundance of agricultural and sea wealth in Australia and New Zealand eg cattle, sheep, chicken, fish, wheat, sugar, fruits, vegetables etc.

    TO TAP THESE RESOURCES IS THE BEST AND CHEAPEST WITHOUT DIRECT INVESTMENTS.

    This huge area of agricultural produce of land or the sea forms a never ending source for the BEST BUSINESS FOR BOTH FELDA AND LTAT TO DO IN THE FACE OF AN APPARENT COMMERCIAL VOID in a small country like Malaysia. Here are the reasons why we can now turn a CRISIS into a GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY.

    1. THE HUGE THEFT OF MONIES FROM FELDA AND LTAT WILL NEED REPLACEMENT IN ONE OF THE SLOWEST BUSINESS IN THE WORLD, OIL PALMS.

    With the loss of timing in re-planting, in personal, in everything which pertains to good agricultural practice, a sound business MODEL has to be a good ALTERNATIVE.

    Without making it too obvious, the basic or core business of these two vital Malay Trust Funds are as good as dead by being killed by the entrusted Trustees who turned out to be crooks.

    The rehabilitation of these financially scarred oil palm plantations will take years to recover and ONLY WITH HUGE INJECTION OF CASH FROM THE GOVERNMENT.

    Hence, the Government must retrieve all the stolen funds even if this takes 100 years. And time is of the essence for the settlers and the pensioners.

    2. THEREFORE, AN ALTERNATIVE FORM OF INVESTMENT MUST BE FOUND TO FILL IN THIS VOID CREATED BY THE CROOKS. AND THIS IS THE HUGE HALAL MARKET IN THE WORLD OF OVER 1 BILLION MUSLIMS.

    Malaysia is ideally sited to process raw agricultural and sea food products from Australia and New Zealand. It is in the interest of both FELDA and LTAT to tap this rich resource for conversion into the World wide halal market by processing these for export from Port Klang eg. canning and freezing foods. And of course our own domestic market.

    3. The two Funds should form a joint venture trading company which sole interest is to develop a huge halal business World-wide with a SMALL beginning involving Australia and New Zealand.

    Unlike the infamous Sime Darby which went into Southern Antipodes trading franchises and will lose all to China eventually, like what they did with some outboard motors in Malaysia or be partner with an ex-employee loaded with baubles in a tiny travel agency in Perth or fit the investments to the horse racing schedule, and other leisure activities etc.,

    THIS JOINT VENTURE OF FELDA AND LTAT IS A SERIOUS BUSINESS VENTURE WHICH WILL COMMAND BILLIONS OF RINGGITS WORTH IN TIME. Business is no place for PLAY BOYS OR GIRLS> eg IMDB etc.etc.

    THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEN AND BOYS IS THE QUALITY OF THEIR TOYS.

    4. The right person has to be found who can work to create a worthwhile business which is enduring and at the same time keeps to the ethics, standards, propriety. sobriety, etc like us because he has the trust of TWO MAJOR MALAY TRUSTS IN HIS HANDS.

    I do not envisage this fellow to collect RM 100 Million a year as basic salary like that Singaporean of no merit or consequence in a GLC created by crooks.

    5. THE HALAL FOOD BUSINESS FOR DOMESTIC AND EXPORT MARKETS BY A FELDA AND LTAT JOINT VENTURE (a stand alone venture will have insufficient funds) BASED ON THE AGRICULTURAL AND SEA PRODUCTS OF AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND IS THE VERY BEST INVESTMENT FOR BOTH TRUSTS. It is simple and straightforward with a short ingestion period. Unlike, the plantation industry which requires huge funds in the slowest business in the World.

    The crooks forgot that all the hard work was already done for them when they took office 35 years ago. They just slipped seamlessly into command and began walloping money which was created by the hard work and loving care of their predecessors.

    6. ANY PERSON WHO IS PAID RM 5 – 10 MILLION A YEAR AND CAN DELIVER THE GOODS UNDER THE SCRUTINY OF AN INDEPENDENT BOARD OF THE JOINT VENTURE COMPANY FORMED BY THE MALAY TRUSTS FELDA AND LTAT, IS SUITABLE. His task is not only to make money but also to employ people from the settlers and the pensioners which eventually rise to 20,000 or more !

    7. IT MUST BE REMEMBERED THAT ANY BUSINESS IS A SERIOUS BUSINESS AND NOT FOR PLAY BOYS OR GIRLS WHO SHOULD PLAY ELSEWHERE AND NOT STEAL PUBLIC TRUST FUNDS.

    8. The joint venture by FELDA and LTAT should be adequately funded by the Government which will be MUCH LESS THAT TO REHABILITATE THE HUGE VOID NOW LEFT BY THE CROOKS.

    9. This joint venture will create many job opportunities for the settlers, pensioners and their families in land or sea at home or overseas -A function which should be Sime Darby’s !

    10. The centre of this halal food industry should be in a green field area near Port Klang because in time, I envisage that the joint venture will own ships, harbours and dockyards next to the factories producing halal canned or frozen foods for BOTH THE DOMESTIC AND EXPORT MARKETS.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem with the New and Incorruptible Government which works for our SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST AND THE RAKYAT. Acheh !

  236. mubarakchan Oct 17,2019 12:22 AM

    Tun

    I support your comment that ” A CONVOCATION IS NOT THE RIGHT PLACE TO PROTEST.”

    It is inappropriate that a very young Chinese tried to make a mark by creating a commotion at a ceremony organised by the leading University of the land. Unfortunately, this incident happened by a Chinese who looks like a Chinese. Why do I say this ?

    Because our beloved Malaysia has the most number of different types of Chinese in the World outside of China.

    In Malaysia, we have Hakkas, Hokkiens, Cantonese, Shanghainese, Foochows, Hainanese, Teochews, Muslim Chinese from China, etc.

    The British being old hands at the game knew that each type of Chinese behaves and thinks differently from another.

    In the 1930s, the British sent their Police Cadets to be stationed for 6 months in Swatow, Canton or Amoy to learn the real natives and their habits. They returned to the Straits Settlements and Kuala Lumpur to keep a wary eye of the Chinese. Until Merdeka , all Official Government forms asked, ‘ What is your dialect ?’ This means if I am a Cantonese, I behave more conservatively and independently of the others. And in recent times, a type of Chinese kept on breaking the corporate laws and were jailed accordingly. There is one such type on the way to jail in Singapore.

    As for this young fellow who wants to tilt like Don Quixote and Sanchez at the windmill, he has plenty of time to do so because he has lost his CHINESE CULTURAL BALLAST AND HERITAGE BEING FROM THE 3RD GENERATION IN MALAYSIA. HE LOOKS LIKE A CHINESE BUT HE IS NOT INSIDE.

    Sadly, a large majority of the Chinese in Malaysia of the 3rd Generation only look like Chinese. Their ballast now consists of money and Western ways and ideals instead of Confucianism of their forefathers (with emphasis on filial piety),- the 1st Generation.

    Hence, we see young Hong Kong Chinese with Western names like Ramsbotham who speaks English fluently in a place where only Cantonese is spoken and many young Malaysian Chinese too.

    What drove the recalcitrant UM boy to demonstrate ? He must have been Inspired by many factors ?

    But definitely Western media influence, peer pressure from the wrong company, lack of Chinese cultural ballast etc played a role in his thoughts and actions.. HE IS JUST A COPY CAT WHO LOVES PUBLICITY.

    What this fellow is protesting about is not new ?

    In my generation, if a fellow hurled Malay vulgarities at me, I would probably say, “Thank you !’ because I belong to the British compartmentalised past where Malay teachers teaching Malay to the Chinese were non-existent.

    But my children all studied at Government schools. My grand-children too. All obtained A’s for Bahasa Melayu by being good in English. My daughter has an important job in a key Western agency in Beijing speaking English and Mandarin which she learnt in 3 months.

    At the age of 21 or slightly more, how much does a person know about the World at large even with all the latest gadgets in hand ?

    He should visit India, Pakistan, Djibouti, Egypt, China and many other places before he sets himself to take on the World. He definitely will not get a Nobel Prize for reasons best known to the Nobel Peace Prize Panel.

    First this young fellow should determine his own genes to see whether his clansmen go with the norm or go crackers sometimes.

    Second, it seems to me he only look but did not see all these years in the UM.

    Third, obviously peer pressure played a huge part on his thinking and emotions and he was manipulated at his own expense. Is he from a broken home ?

    Just for this fellow’s edification, does he know that the German Swiss, the French Swiss, the Italian Swiss and the Romansch Swiss still make snide remarks about each other behind their backs after 800 years of Confederation ?

    And does he know that my Cambridge friend who worked for a life-time at Telstar the Australian Telco was pushed to be just an Adviser after he was due to be the Chief Executive Officer ?

    And many other examples overseas in Western countries where it was the policy to have a glass ceiling for these folks who are not white.

    As I always said that travelling alone around the World is the best education for all.

    Wong does not represent the majority of the Chinese.

    In this instance, he represents himself and those behind him. TO MAKE A FUSS OF OLD ISSUES WHICH HAVE BEEN BROUGHT OUT OF THE CUPBOARD AND TREATED AS NEW BY THE PROTAGANISTS.

    In fact his target the V-C did not say anything ORIGINAL HIMSELF in this land of plagiarists. There were countless numbers of others before him for decades if one is aware of Bahasa Melayu and Malaysian history which is the Arbiter of the Truth.

    Yet our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat still flow onwards in peace, harmony and prosperity.

    I am of the opinion as a born optimist and a trained pragmatist that it is better to spend our energies to be constructive and productive to better our Malaysians all round than behave LIKE A TIGER WHEN ONE IS ACTUALLY A PUSSY CAT UNDER THE SKIN ?

    Communal parties in time will have to give way to Constitutional parties as the beloved country is urbanised and modernised. Otherwise, we get more than one wrong. AND TWO WRONGS DO NOT MAKE A RIGHT.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No problem with one man shows trying to get come cheap publicity on issues which are as old as the hills. It took a 3rd Generation recalcitrant to find out !

    As I said on the Hong Kong riots. Why were the Hong Kong folk so meek and mild in 1984 when they should have rioted with Molotov cocktails when the British were there ?

    Sadly, they were contented to call themselves ‘Ramsbotham etc.’ Now they pay the price for their insouciance.

    It’s the Constitution, Wong, not the V-C. You missed the boat since 1957 ! This is the main reason why those behind you hide in the darkness because they know the truth. It is nothing but the Truth.

  237. mubarakchan Oct 16,2019 12:25 PM

    Tun

    This is a time of need for our beloved Malaysia. This is not the time for frivolity and loose-talking by anyone who is an adult.

    I am referring to the wise rebut of our beloved Tun against those who still think our beloved Malaysia is a land of riches with abundance of natural resources in complete self-denial.

    Yes ! We were rich and had wealth before the horrific rape and vandalism of our monetary reserves by the corrupt BN Government 2004-2018 which were built up and conserved from the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad right up to 2003 from 1957. This reserve of money and wealth of human assets were built on the backs of all the Rakyat from blood, sweat, tears and toil.

    We the Rakyat were all in this. 1957-2003.

    And yet at the Malay Dignity Congress organised by 4 reputable universities there was not one single mention of regret and remorse about this most disgraceful episode in our history. The ex-BN Leaders behaved the same by smiling all the time.

    How to progress like this without recognition of a horrific episode in our history as it is to be expected that the same horrific actions by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs will be repeated again in the future ?

    The headline that piqued me this morning, thus

    ” DR M : PROPERTY OVERHANG COULD LEAD TO CRISIS ”

    Thanks to a good Leader and Prime Minister who has always based his actions on facts and not on fiction or emotions.

    Unless a person is deaf, dumb or blind or from Mars, there is a huge surplus of newly constructed properties in Malaysia today which is due to the corrupt and abuse of POWER by the corrupt BN Government and its agencies 2004-2018. Some Suits pertaining to this as prosecuted by the New and Incorruptible Government point to the acceptance of BRIBES for proprty approvals. This is just the tip of the corrupt iceberg.

    Further, the new property overhang is supported by financing from the banks which are deeply involved in all the construction projects.

    And this property surplus overhang hits the market at its lowest ebb. Thanks to the non-planning by the corrupt BN Government’s Leaders who were interested to pocket more and more bribes without thought about the future collapse of the whole of our economic system which would have swept all of us into the cesspool of POVERTY AND CRISIS.

    Not only the banks but importantly the property developers will be bankrupted as well due to the absence of buyers in an illiquid market LIKE NOW and the lack of surplus funds in the Government coffers because these have been stolen by its predecessor known as KLEPTOCRACY.

    THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT HAS TO CUT THE GORDIAN KNOT TO IMPROVE MONETARY ILLIQUIDITY BY PERMITTING MORE BUYERS FOR THE HUGE SURPLUS OF NEWLY CONSTRUCTED PROPERTIES WHICH WERE CREATED BY CORRUPTION OF THE BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 WITHOUT FORWARD PLANNING.

    The property industry has always been linked to the Government from its very beginning in 1957 – it is a nexus of politics and commerce.

    The one in China is 10,000 times bigger. So we can imagine the crises in both Malaysia and China if the construction industry, the property developers, the banks are permitted to fail.

    Imagine the disastrous crisis of our own making faced by the incumbent Government.

    HENCE, THE GOVERNMENT HAS TAKEN THE RIGHT APPROACH BEING PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE.

    It is a wonder to me that from the MAIN PERPETRATOR with the connivance of the stupid fat little boy of no merit or consequence right down to the camp followers, there is not one iota of REGRET OR REMORSE as if all is NORMAL in a once rich country made poor by these crooks.

    Our beloved country Malaysia has always been balanced on a knife’s edge as regards everything from politics to prosperity, peace and harmony since the distant past. All the hard work, sweat blood and tears of the Rakyat built up our wealth to 2003 when Malaysia only had a total debt of RM 350 Billion.

    From 2004-2018 under the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs borrowed up to over RM 1 Trillion which did not leave a mark anywhere by way of developments in the interests of the Rakyat.

    Now we see the ugly concrete stumps of the MRT still unfinished in the outlying districts of Kuala Lumpur and unfinished titanic buildings in Kuala Lumpur where there is already a huge surplus of office space in a stagnant economy since 20 years ago.

    The abuse and corruption of POWER seemed to be out of this World in comparison to the steady hand of the Prime Ministers before 2004. The whole scenario seemed to be crafted by crazy crews led by intoxicated Leaders of no merit or consequence.

    How can this be in our beloved Malaysia once lauded as having good administration coupled with sound financial management ?

    Now we are down on our knees and have to work hard again to stand up again to be PROUD STRONG AND UNITED.

    At least thanks to our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s wise, brilliant and courageous Leadership, our beloved Malaysia is one of the 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia since 9 May 2018. Where are you Singapore ?

    And during the horrific period of financial rape and vandalism 2004-2018, Singapore moved in to grab WHATEVER SHE WANTED FROM THE UMNO OWN NSTP CHIEF EDITOR’S CHAIR WITH A LUSH SIME DARBY CONTRACT RIGHT THROUGH TO THE ROCKS. Everything which Singapore wanted was given EX GRATIS.

    AND WHAT DID OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA GET FROM SINGAPORE AT THE END IN 2018 ? – NOTHING FROM SINGAPORE BUT MORE INSULTS ARISING FROM THEIR WRITTEN PUBLICATIONS AND THE WHOLE WORLD LOOKED DOWN ON US !

    Yet today, the ex-BN Leaders are smiling without a care in the World or about the horrific mess they have left behind.

    DOES THIS DEMEANOUR MEAN THAT THE RM 1 TRILLION IS SAFELY OVERSEAS AS REPORTED BY THE UN, THE WORLD BANK AND THE IMF ?

    Our beloved Malaysia and its incumbent New and Incorruptible Government MUST RETRIEVE ALL THE STOLEN RAKYAT’S MONEY EVEN IF THIS TAKES 100 YEARS TO UNDERLINE OUR OWN SELF-RESPECT AND SELF-ESTEEM ! No more. No less !

    Yes ! We Malaysians are very fortunate indeed to have our iconic giant of a Leader Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to LEAD US OUT OF THE CESSPOOL OF POVERTY AND LOST OF PRESTIGE AND SELF-ESTEEM into the landscape of PROSPERITY, PEACE AND HARMONY. All crooks to the wall !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem in our beloved Malaysia, the best in the World. And in support of your comment, ” PROPERTY OVERHAGD COULD LEAD TO CRISIS.” With all due respect, I consider this an understatement but a wise one !

    A good sign of a rising trend in business with an indication of our beloved Malaysia’s return to NORMALCY is the flush of meaningful headlines galore in the media this morning, thus

    1. ” PM: CREATING TECH THE WAY OF THE FUTURE. ”

    2. ” MALAYSIA PUSH FOR ASIAN TIGER STATUS. INDUSTRY 4.0 TO BE PLATFORM TO PROJECT NATION FORWARD. PM. ”

    3. ” INDIAN POLITICIAN LINKED TO NABBED MALAYSIAN LEADERS. ”

    4. ” TAMIL NADU POLITICIAN UNDER PROBE. HE ALLEGEDLY MET SEVERAL LOCAL LEADERS TO POOL SUPPORT TO REVIVE LTTE. ”

    5. ” PM DEFENDS USE OF ACT IN LTTE PROBE. DR M SATISFIED WITH COPS’ REASONING FOR USING SOSMA IN TAMIL TIGERS ARRESTS. ”

    6. ” SET CEILING ON DEBT GUARANTEES, SAYS A-G. GOVT SHOULD TAKE INTO ACCOUNT ITS FINANCIAL STANDINGS. ”

    7. ” CAP ON GOVT GUARANTEE NEEDED – A-G. THE PROPOSAL MEANS AN OVERALL DEBT TO GDP CEILING OF 70% IF THE LIMIT ON SUCH GUARANTEES IS INCLUDED.”

    8. ” COASTAL EROSION STILL A WORRY. DID: PROBLEM BAD IN KELANTAN, TERENGGANU, MELAKA AND JOHOR. ”

    9. ” PULAU KUKUP SALTED FISH MAKERS SUFFER LOSSES OF RM 5 MIL.”

    10. ” RAJA MUDA CYCLES TO MEET THE POOR. PERLIS CROWN PRINCE RIDES REGULARLY, VISITING HIS B40 SUBJECTS TO GIVE AID. ”

    11. ” DRASTIC DROP IN THE COUNTRY’S BIRTH RATE, SAYS YEOH. ”

    12. ” BANGSA MALAYSIA IS FOR ALL, SAYS ZURIADA. ”

    13. ” TOURISM MINISTER SAYS RM 90 MIL IN BUDGET IS ENOUGH. PREFERS TO BE THRIFTY.”

    Do the headlines tell us that events in Malaysia stretch from the sublime to the ridiculous ?

    1 – 2. After years of neglect by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs, we the Rakyat now can see the guidelines or road posts to the future as implemented by the New and Incorruptible Government. Now, we do not see yachts in Trengganu, the Prime Minister’s Istana turned into a night club or film stars from Hollywood etc because our beloved Malaysia is a serious emerging Nation trying to make it to the top tier of Nations even though we are hospitable and friendly. The headlines today say it all.

    3 – 5. As I have been saying for years, during the Cold War 1948-1989, Bangkok was the hot-bed of international espionage whilst Singapore was where the nations in conflict built their biggest embassies like the U.S. Russia, Israel, China etc. But today, it is Malaysia’s turn to be the World’s centre for espionage. Our beloved Malaysia even had a hand picked most beautiful spy 004 who has sticky fingers and licenced to kill with her golden Walther PPK. She has a penchant for Gucci specs and Chanel handbags too like her Boss.

    6 – 7. For the very first time the A-G is clear in the conclusion of what the BN Government had done which was THE COMPLETE NEGLECT OF GOOD GOVERNANCE BOLSTERED BY GOOD CONTROLS AND BOOK-KEEPING. Until the New and Incorruptible Government came into POWER – a pencil for the BN Government cost RM 10 ! And purchased computers could not be found !

    8 – 9. It is good if Malaysia can attract international institutes to study and research our sea resources along our coasts with a view to conserve our natural habitats which give shelter to all kinds of living creatures of the sea. I see this as a bonanza for the production of food for the Malaysians as well as halal exports. No doubt the damage caused by digging sand for Singapore has caused all the coastal habitats to be damaged.

    10. That’s only one distinguished personality doing his duty as a compassionate humankind. We will soon here many from each State will be doing the same. This is the tradition and strength of our beloved Malaysia from our distant past.

    11 – 12. One very junior minister is forever seeking the lime-light. But this person always missed the mark. In the latest, this person FORGOT ABOUT THE DEMOGRAPHICS OF MALAYSIA WHEN THIS PERSON TRIED TO SENSATIONALIZE THE BIRTH RATE STATISTICS ! What to do if a person has no MINDSET ?

    And juxtaposed this junior against a capable and solid Minister with the MINDSET who pronounced that ‘ BANGSA MALAYSIA ‘ IS FOR ALL, it is like comparing chalk and cheese !

    13. KUDOS TO THE MINISTER OF TOURISM WHO SAID RM 90 MILLION IS SUFFICIENT AND HE WANTS TO BE THRIFTY.

    Unlike the MCA Minister of Tourism for really toured the lush watering places like the Southern Antipodes and London with her family. In London, she promoted London with millions of ringgits of an orchid show at the high-class Royal Chelsea Show, London. She was awarded a Gold Medal by the Queen which rightly belongs to the National Muzium. Of course, during this person tenure, not many Arab, Indian or Chinese visited Malaysia because she never visited these dusty places jam-packed with people.

    Malaysia Bolleh Tun as always. No problem. Things are perking up in our beloved Malaysia favour because of the hard-work put in by the New and Incorruptible Government since 9 May 2018 as led by you with DSAI and the Team by your side.

    ADDENDUM ON MY PREVIOUS COMMENTS ON TUN DR DAIM ZAINUDDIN AND IN SUPPORT OF DSAI, thus.

    1. ” In 1962, one night after a lawyers’ dinner at the Hotel Merlin Kuala Lumpur, both of us carried an inebriated judge from Seremban back to his car ! ”

    2. I am certain DSAI has wider benefits for the Rakyat in mind concerning Penang and Kedah. The New Alternative Proposals for Penang will turn the State of Penang INTO THE FINEST LEISURE AND HOLIDAY RESORT IN THE WORLD WITH MORE JOBS AND HIGHER WAGES FOR THE RAKYAT. Where else but Pulau Pinang Malaysia ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. IT’S THE MINDSET AS YOU SO RIGHTLY EXHORTED US !

    A normal week must begin with some serious headlines, thus

    1. ” PM : NO CITIZENSHIP FOR FOREIGNERS JUST FOR BUYING RM 600K PROPERTY.”

    As long as I can remember, no country in the World will do such a foolhardy thing by giving its citizenship to a foreigner who buys a property. It is absurd.

    2. ” TEEN PREGNANCIES ON THE DECLINE.”

    The figures given for the decline were provided for the years 2012 to 2018 being 18,847 registered births in public hospitals down to 10,505 in 2018.

    The Deputy Minister for Women, Family and Childcare announced a few months ago that there were 100,000 such cases a year. She was also responsible for the following announcements, thus

    i). The Anti-bottom pinching Bill. ii) Nursery in the Dewan Rakyat. iii). Put up a fake fight with the Minister of the WP. iv). Stop condo building to reduce traffic congestion. v). Set up a new Unit for Women, Family and Children in the Ministry for Women, Family and Children which has been looking after the same for decades. vi). 100,000 teenage pregnancies a year.

    This Deputy Minister will do well if she warns of the rising Venereal Diseases around the World especially in Australia. Many homes have been broken because of this. A healthy Mind and Body makes a Strong and Healthy Nation.

    3. ” ANWAR WARNS OF BACKLASH IN PENANG OVER PSR “.

    I support the sentiments as expressed by DSAI. The problem with the Penang State Government is that it has tunnel vision since 2008 and believes that it is Singapore. Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore did not make money from Singapore but from Uncle Sam’s largesse during the Cold War 1948-1989. I estimated the profits made to be nearly US$ 600 Billion. Penang has nothing in comparison to Singapore and has to borrow every sen for its development. Therefore Penang must consider better alternatives for its future developments which are wealth creation from its existing land resources and a recurrent source of revenue,

    The New Proposals for the benefit of all without disturbing the present congenial environment which has a long history to support.

    1. Abolish the Bayan Lepas Airport and turn it into the World’s finest tropical city, the New George Town by treating Penang and Kedah as one single socio-economic unit which was in existence before the arrival of the British in 1779.
    2. Shift all the Government facilities to the New George Town.
    3. Abolish the quit rent and assessment in the old George Town.
    4. Beautify the southern shore of Penang Island.
    5. Abolish the tunnel.
    6. Abolish the Butterworth Air Base and shift to the Kulim Airport. Turn it into another New Town for the Rakyat.
    7. Turn Komtar into a 4 star and a 3 star hotel.
    8. Up grade the sewerage system of George Town to 21st century standards.
    9. Introduce trams into old George Town.
    10. Abolish the Highway instead introduce a Japanese country type of train from Tanjong Bungah via the New George Town to Kulim and Sungei Petani. The Japanese could do it on a single rail track.
    11. Flatten Pulau Jerejak for a luxury liner terminal with a shopoing complex and a small domestic airport.
    12. A super fast rail connection between the New George Town and Kulim
    13. The foot hills to the west of the New George Town for low cost housing. The northern limit of the New George Town is Sungei Kluang.
    14. All factories will automatically flow to the mainland. Workers get higher pay in the tourist industry on the island.

    These New Proposals are far superior to anything else. Billions of ringgits are generated from the conversion of the old airport into the New George Town at minimum cost which will also proved many jobs and business opportunities. And these proposals are practical, fast and transparent without incurring huge debts with no ability to repay.

    Penang and Kedah should immediately work together as one for quick results and revenue under the same Government

    Malaysia Boleh Tun a s always. No Problem.

    The most exhilarating headline this Sunday was the full page picture of Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin being bestowed with the prestigious Ph.D by HRH Sultan Nazrin Shah, the Chancellor of the University of Malaya, for his magnum opus, ” The NEP. It’s Successes and Failures.”

    A true classic of a difficult wide ranging topic which took 8 years to complete. And in these 8 years, a long-standing BN Government also fell due to the failure of its Leadership, 2004-2018.

    I have known Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin since 1961. I used to dine at his humble home in Jalan Chawan off Jalan Gasing, Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Then, I also noted that he was confident of what he could do first as a lawyer then as an entrepreneur. He always kept to his principles which were governed by logic and common sense devoid of emotions which might affect his judgement.

    He made his way up the gravy train for all like any other person who relied on the norms of business which turned out to be a blessing when Tun Dr Daim was entrusted to a Minister of Finance. He knew his limits.

    Here is a gentleman who is exceptional in view of the great attrition of the Malay elite in our beloved Malaysia in recent times which were nearly wiped out 3 generations through self-attrition being 1957-2018. His honesty and sense of fair-play and justice stood him in good-stead from the beginning right up to date, 2019. A highly intelligent person who has a deep academic bent which led him to further his to pursue knowledge through studies in the East-West Centre, Hawaii, the University of California, San Francisco, Harvard and Cambridge.

    Tun Dr Daim would rather spent time in academia than collect 10,000 Rolex. Instead, he would have bought the Rolex factory. Such was the person.

    Tun Dr Daim’s mind is absolutely focussed on the subject at hand and could furnish immediate answers due to the fact that he had already studied and remembered the information previously acquired on the subject in question. Hence, unlike many contemporaries, he stands above them all, from 1959-2019.

    His endearing humbleness is his hallmark as a person of great character with self-esteem who could meet Kings, Presidents at the very top of the hierarchy but also he could drive around in a Proton comfortably with ordinary friends hunting for a fine Malay cuisine in a humble neighbourhood anywhere in town especially in the Taman Melawati precinct.

    When he was at ground level, I was around. When he was at Mount Olympus, I was around but I knew it would be ground level again.” Man proposes, God disposes”. He was up again in Mount Olympus. No problem. Because of his magnificent mind-set with no funny thoughts ever crossed his mind which made for his credibility and reliability to deliver whatever was requested from him.

    Was it the genes and the DNA ? I believe a human kind are made up of both. Like a person has to be born to be a President or Prime Minister, not made.

    There is still plenty of time for Tun Dr Daim to publish another tome about himself – ONE OF THE FINEST ROLE MODELS OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA LIKE OUR TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD. An emerging country like our beloved Malaysia requires as many role models as possible and elite to boot. And to publish many books as well.

    Two monumental historical events being the NEP 1970-2008 a properly contrived plan to eliminate poverty as crafted by the Great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak and his Team and the 1MDB an evil plan as created by phantom hands with secret agendas are the very best examples of Humankind’s fables and foibles.

    As history is the fines arbiter of the Truth, every Malaysian from now onwards should be aware of our own failings and strengths in order to march forward together for the Progress and Prosperity as now formulated as the SPV2030 !

    Let us hope the present New and Corruptible Government will administer for the next 50 years and will not shoot itself in the foot for something common like MONEY WHICH BELONGED TO THE RAKYAT.

    It was my privilege to know Tun Dr Daim Zainuddin an exceptional gentleman for all the seasons ! His magnificent Mind-set made him ticks which is based on Bahasa Melayu and English ! I encourage my grand-daughter to be good in English in order to be strong in Bahasa Melayu.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    Tun

    Kudos to the FM and the New and Incorruptible Government led by you with DSAI and the Team by your side in presenting the 2020 Budget of the Government.

    Like the veritable bikini, the Budget 2020 covered all the vital parts for the want of money.

    Though the Budget was limited in its scope of dishing out large dollops of goodies, it managed to be comprehensive to ensure that nearly all got a bite of the cherry to those who deserved Government assistance. Hence, a cursory glance at the response of ‘the man or woman in the street’ seemed to give a favourable response, thus

    ” LOOKS LIKE MANY MALAYSIANS HAPPY WITH BUDGET 2020 SAYS PM.”

    However, I have noted the big gaps were left untouched by the Budget 2020 being a Government inspired ‘Big’ Stimulus to push the economy through the traditional construction industry, the banks and a move by the Government into affordable housing.

    I also noted that interested foreign investors were welcomed to invest in Malaysia and further measures were designed to attract the FDI. The latter is the key to a sustainable economy together with the evergreen tourist industry – a must for Malaysia especially in 2020 – the key year to kick off Malaysia’s economy with whatever boosters may be available.

    There was no mention of the 3 S eg alcohol, cigarettes and gaming which are already under revenue stress.

    All in all, with the apparent resolution of both the China-US Trade Dispute and the Brexit in the sights, there is much hope for A SUPPLEMENTARY 2020 BUDGET TO ENHANCE THE STIMULUS further in March 2020 because under the present FM we can be sure that the books are clean and well-kept !

    As there was no move towards the difficult subject of affordable housing for all, I suggest that because our POLITICAL AND SOCIO-ECONOMIC STRUCTURE IS NOT CONDUCIVE TO PROVIDE MASS AFFORDABLE HOUSING TO THE RAKYAT, WE MUST CREATE SOMETHING UNIQUE WITH WHAT WE CAN FIND WITHING THE SYSTEM.

    As it is, it is risky and foolhardy for the New and Incorruptible Government to pour precious money for affordable housing without the proper safeguards and a creditable and accountable corporate structure to be administered by just one reliable and honest digit.

    The private sector which is based on profits is not ideal for such an enterprise.

    Therefore, there must be some groups who can take up the slack in terms of long term investments which are already part and parcel of their businesses which had operated within our existing Political and Socio-economic System. The banks are definitely out of this. But the following entities are in the long term business.

    1. The Government

    2. The REITS

    3. The Insurance Companies

    4. The Long Term Funds like the EPF, TH, KWAP, SOCSO etc.

    5. The Foreign Funds which invest in Emerging countries.

    5. Miscellaneous – eg The Affordable Housing Corporation Bonds.

    The above mentioned entities should provide the Management know-how and the long term funds for the affordable housing scheme clusters.

    How to make the Affordable Housing Scheme for All work ?

    1. The Government sets aside lands at cheap prices in areas about 1 hour travelling time from major towns. Cognoscenti are aware that politicians have become rich from cheap allotment of Government lands through the decades.

    2. The Affordable Housing clusters should be sited near road or rail transport hubs or nexuses in the State. Those in KL are more suitable for the Civil Servants, and the uniformed services. Putrajaya and Cyberjaya are ideal for Affordable Housing and lands along the West Coast, N-S Highways etc.

    4. In each Affordable Housing cluster, there should be a choice of dwellings of different designs of up to 60 storey condos. In other words, an affordable housing NEW TOWNSHIP is envisaged funded by entities who can afford and are accustomed to very long term funding and returns at minimum interest rates.

    LIKE THIS OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA UNDER OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WILL AGAIN ACHIEVE SOMETHING UNIQUE IN THE WORLD LIKE HIS CREATION OF THE MALAY MIDDLE INCOME GROUP 1981-2003. But these AFFORDABLE TOWNSHIP CLUSTERS ARE FOR ALL MALAYSIANS WITHIN ONE HOUR TRAVELLING TIME OF A BIG TOWN AT REAL AFFORDABLE PRICES.

    5. THIS ENTERPRISE HAS TO BE A COMPLETELY NEW AND STAND ALONE ENTERPRISE UNIQUE TO MALAYSIA.

    6 THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THIS ENTERPRISE IS TO FIND THE RIGHT PERSON WHO CAN HELM THIS DAUNTING TASK WITHOUT CORRUPTION AND ABUSE BECAUSE PUBLIC FUNDS ARE INVOLVED. With just a cheap piece of land and the RIGHT PERSON WE HAVE AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR ALL. Private sectors are not suitable because all are profit oriented.

    7. Suppliers to the construction of these affordable housing must deliver at minimum cost with an income tax sweetener, etc.

    8. Such a proposed Affordable Housing Scheme for all can only work with TRANSPARENCY, HONESTY AND DEDICATION by those responsible.

    As I see the problem of Affordable Housing for all, the above-mention ideas are the only WAY within our Political and Socio-economic System or Framework.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem as long as we keep this enterprise of Affordable Housing for All simple and straightforward with just one person in charge who is honest and has the RIGHT MIND-SET !

    I am in support of you comments as reported in the media on the riots in Hong Kong.

    It is obvious the Chief Minister was indecisive from the beginning on the action to take. She was shown to be weak when she permitted the rioters to vandalised the august chambers of the Legislative Council. Hardly anyone was arrested and charged. I would expect at least a few thousand lawbreakers, especially the ring-leaders to have been arrested by now and charged.

    The commercial life of Hong Kong was disrupted for months and yet the police do not seem to know who the Leaders are. This is surprising because a mass demonstration of this magnitude which develops at the drop of the hat is obviously well-organised by those who are not in the streets. Arrest them forthwith. The sad thing is the mobs seemed to have the upper-hand or initiatives and not the Government.

    In any country, this mob power must never be permitted in the first place.

    As you expect, Tun, any wrong move in Hong Kong now will lead to unnecessary bloodshed in a place such a thing should not have happened on day one.

    Sadly, the mobs did not come out in 1984 and sought a UN Guarantee for the due performance of the 1984 Agreement. As it is, the rioters have been instigated and manipulated by unseen hands with no locus standi. Let us hope a bloody clash will not be the grand finale.

    ADDENDUM TO MY PREVIOUS COMMENT ON GLCs.

    Just as I had commented on the evils of the Communistic GLCs as created by Lee Kuan Yew in our Democratic Capitalistic System, an ex-Leader criticised that the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and young, the good and the great as being incapable of administrating Malaysia’s financial system.

    ” THE MAN FROM MARS CLAIMS BARISAN MUCH BETTER AT MANAGING COUNTRY’S ECONOMY. ” Today, the whole country of 31 million has been impoverished by this fellow’s acts by at least 30%-50% affecting the rich and the poor. No one is exempted.

    Given the manner in which a GLC is structured by Lee Kuan Yew, a GLC will always be abused, corrupted and its money stolen because HOW MANY CIVIL SERVANTS ARE BUSINESS PERSONS ?

    A Lee Kuan Yew tailored GLC is for him alone to control in tiny Singapore where a person’s secrets are only a whisper away. That’s why Singaporeans made good in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Hong Kong. History is the finest arbiter of the truth. Those who think they can do illegal things in Singapore like the MCA fellows will end up in Changi prison. Another MCA fellow is on his way.

    Further, this ex-Leader of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs was alleged to condone the antics of the stupid fat little boy with no merit.

    THIS IS NOW PROVEN THIS LITTLE BOY COULD NOT MAKE ONE SEN OUT OF RM 42 BILLION OR MORE. Of course, he is no Chinese but a Martian.

    NOT ONE SEN WAS GIVEN TO ME BY THE CONSORTIUM OF BANKS LED BY MIDF, HSBC, STANDARD CHARTERED, BANGKOK BANK, UMBC, MOSCOW NARODNY FOR ME TO TURN ROUND THE BIGGEST CORPORATE SCANDAL, FOLEX INDUSSTRIES BERHAD NOW KNOWN AS SRI HARTAMAS BERHAD FROM 1975-1984.

    From 1978, I made millions of ringgits every year, employed 1,200 Malay workers who worked good and well on 3 shifts with ONE CHINESE AND ONE MALAY MANAGER after sacking 8 Taiwanese. This was the meaning of normal work ethics in a BN Constituency of Taiping in support at least 5,000 – 6,000 happy and fully employed MALAYS and their famillies. The Opposition could not get in until I left. I was only paid RM 7,000 a month, not RM 70,000 or RM 700,000 a month for doing no work like now.

    Whatever were offered to me, cash, overseas travel, gifts, 10 course Chinese dinners, etc, I passed them to the Staff or employees who would get motorbikes, bicycles, TV, Hi-Fi, fridges, fans, furniture, household goods at a PESTA ONCE A YEAR BEFORE PUASA.

    I was sorry to leave but my job of repaying the HUGE DEBT TO THE CONSORTIUM WAS RETURNED IN FULL. THE CONSORTIUM WALKED AWAY AS THOUGH NOTHING HAPPENED. To this day, I am happy that I served our Malaysians well at Folex in Kamunting, Perak. I was not a shareholder. I could keep the business alive and made lots of money over 9 years, the new shareholders could not do so within 3 years. Thereafter, the factory was closed down and the employees were all dismissed.

    IT IS THE GLC DIGITS WHO MAKE OR BREAK A BUSINESS. No GLC digits will be able to be disciplined and honest in the Malaysian business environment given all the horror stories which have come out of the Private Sector of public listed companies. History is the finest arbiter of the Truth. Forget about Lee Kuan Yew’s GLCs which only belonged to Daddy. Why should we rely on Singapore to make the Malays rich ? Is this logical ?

    We do it our Malaysian Way through consensus as advised and guided by our brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. No more. No less.

    I must respond to a misleading headline this morning in the NSTP Page 12, 4 October 2019, thus

    ” WEALTH CREATION. GLCs CAN DO MORE TO HELP BUMIS. ”

    I disagree entirely with this headline which is only eye-catching and lacks depth. Here is the true story of the Lee Kuan Yew creation, GLC.

    After the Separation in 1965, on the advice of the UN economics expert and adviser to the Singapore Government Albert Winsemius, 1962-1984, the Jurong Industrial Park was established in 1968.

    At first the private sector was encouraged to invest in the industries there.

    Industries like Far East Levingston, Eupoc, Fair Lady Wigs, Regent Wigs, Singapore Textiles, Starlite Ceramics, Diaward Industries etc were established with the full support of the EDB. By the early 1970s, most of them failed because the owners were traders and not industrialists, Singapore’s market was small and the established brands crowded out the newcomers.

    Lee Kuan Yew was forced to step into this industrial component of the GDP to provide employment which was mainly Malays.

    Government owned entities like SIA, NOL, Sembawang Shipyard, Keppel Chartered Industries, DBS, United Land etc were established to fill the void.

    Being monopolistic businesses, these Government owned businesses began to make money. By the early 1980s, Lee Kuan Yew called them Government Linked Companies.

    When the communist countries imploded in the 1980s, Russia and China thought Lee Kuan Yew’s creation the GLCs was just perfect for them being the half-way house between Communism and Capitalism. They did not consider the authoritarian ways of Lee Kuan Yew who kept all the GLCs tightly controlled personally which could only be done in a tiny place of a one street town.

    For example, his sister-in-law was head of the Tourist Board for a life-time.

    Russia and China regretted about copying Lee Kuan Yew’s GLC creation which brought huge corruptions and scandals in their GLCs spread out over their VAST LANDS. In time the Singapore GLCs will fail too as already shown in Brazil in a recent corruption case. At least 100 Chinese from GLCs are on the run from China.

    Here are some pointers to remember.

    1. NO WESTERN DEMOCRACY DOES BUSINESS TO MAKE MONEY FOR THE PEOPLE. THIS IS COMMUNISTIC. It is left to the private sector to make the money and for the Government to tax the profits. Clean and incorruptible.

    2. ONLY 4 COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD HAVE THESE GLCs eg. SINGAPORE. RUSSIA, CHINA AND MALAYSIA. All are authoritarian with the exception of Malaysia. So why Malaysia mingles with strangers with no IDEOLOGICAL INTENT ?

    The Malaysian GLCs came by way of Danaharta where a fellow with a secret agenda could persuade a weak Leadership of Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite to turn what was left in Danaharta into an EMPIRE OF GLCs OF BILLIONS OF RINGGITS with one person in command and control

    REMEMBER THE ANCIENT BUSINESS SAYING,’ THE BEST WAY TO MAKE MONEY IS NOT TO OWN THE BUSINESS !’ Got it ?

    I remember it was reported between 2004-2018 that ‘ WHAT IS GOOD FOR SINGAPORE IS GOOD FOR MALAYSIA.’

    This refrain was also adopted for the NS Training Camps which were the first example to steal money from the Government coffers by way of contracts, catering, construction, transport, uniforms, employees etc. The loss of billions of ringgits was incurred to the Government.

    Then, the BN Leadership 2004-2018 parroted ‘ THE GLC’s WILL PROTECT MALAY BUSINESSES AND MAKE MONEY FOR THE MALAYS.’ The results the Rakyat can see today.

    Billions of ringgits ended up in private hands and nothing in the Government coffers. THE CROOKS INVOLVED ARE NOT MORE THAN 50 SOULS ! And our beloved Malaysia nearly bankrupted BUT ALL THE RAKYAT HAD THEIR WEALTH DIMINISHED BY 30%-50%. No one was exempted. Rich or poor.

    AND NOW THIS NST HEADLINE TODAY 4 OCTOBER 2019 EXHORTS US TO REVERT BACK TO THE COMMUNISTIC, CORRUPT AND USELESS GLCs.

    HOW CAN THE GLCs make money for the Malays given the solid evidence of failure all round caused by the digits in the GLCs ? And from 2004 – 2018, THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF GLCs, Federal and State.

    The NST article seemed to imply that a GLC will be the panacea to the business problems of the Malays. This is not true.

    ONLY 1% SUCCEEDS IN BUSINESS WITHOUT A MONOPOLY, MALAY OR NON-MALAY. Strangely, even the sugar monopoly now loses MONEY. This means qualified people must run the show and make money. And not any Ahmad, Ah Kow or Samy.

    And the article also does not know that in our beloved Malaysia, a person who has RM 300,000 cash is a millionaire. And if the person is a Malay, he is one and a half a millionaire in our beloved Malaysia given all the perks and subsidies.

    AND THIS ARTICLE ‘GLCs CAN DO MORE TO HELP BUMIS’ ACTUALLY IS BEGGING THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT LED BY OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY HIS SIDE – TO GIVE MORE CRUTCHES TO THE MALAYS.

    At the present time, I do believe in maintaining the crutches for the Malays DUE TO THE ALL OUT FINANCIAL RAPE AND VANDALISM BY THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPTE ELITE AND GLCs/SOEs – but the creation of more GLCs/SOEs will be hara-kiri by her own hands, our beloved Malaysia.

    Yet, some do not SEE but only to look.

    EVERY DAY THERE ARE HEADLINES REPORTING ON THE BIGGEST CORRUPTION IN THE WORLD THE 1MDB IN COURT.

    The story tells us that a stupid fat little boy with no merit COULD NOT MAKE ONE SEN WITH RM 42 BILLIONS OR MORE. He spent it all on wine, women and song and bought 4th rate works of art and property, jets and yachts !

    WITH NOT ONE SEN FROM THE CONSORTIUM OF BANKS, FROM 1975 TO 1984, I COULD MAKE MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF RINGGITS BY TURNING ROUND THE BIGGEST CORPORATE BANKRUPTCY IN THE 1970s IN A TOUGH BUSINESS, TEXTILES.
    And we read every day of the sad story of a stupid fat little boy with no merit who could not make ONE SEN WITH RM 42 BILLION OR MORE.

    Can the writer see the difference between a PRIVATE SECTOR ENTITY WITH NO MONEY BAIL-OUT AND THE GLC 1MDB WITH RM 42 BILLION ? It’s the DIGITS !

    As it is said, ” THE DIFFENCE BETWEEN MEN AND BOYS IS THE QUALITY OF THEIR TOYS ”

    And yet, we still read about articles wanting more GLCs/SOEs to make money for the Malays. GLCs/SOEs are the most corrupt business entities in existence.

    DO NOT FUDGE THE ESSENTIAL GLCs WITH MONOPOLIES LIKE TNB, TELEKOM ETC. These are more closely monitored. YET BECAUSE OF CORRUPTION, THESE LOSE MONEY AS WELL OR SHOULD MAKE MORE !

    For those who took a holiday in Mars and just returned.

    THE MOST INFAMOUS GLC OF ALL IS SIME DARBY WHICH WAS BANKRUPTED TWICE BY ITS MANAGEMENT AT RM 1.2 BILLION AND RM 2.10 BILLION RESPIECTIVELY IN 1996 AND 2010. THE SAME MANAGEMENT BANKRUPTED SIME DARBY TWICE. BELIEVE IT OR NOT. And Sime Darby became a majority owned PNB company because PNB was forced to BAIL-OUT THE BANKRUPTCIES CAUSED BY ITS OWN MANAGEMENT TWICE. Believe it or not.

    Hence, our beloved Malaysia has an illiquid financial system WITH SO MUCH MONEY SIPHONED OVERSEAS. Vide UN, IMF, World Bank Reports 2002-2018. RM 1.50 Trillion were transferred overseas during the period.

    IF THIS STOLEN RM 1.5 TRILLION WERE BROUGHT BACK TO BENEFIT MALAY BUSINESS, OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WILL BE A FIRST WORLD COUNTRY OVERNIGHT. RATHER THAN TO WALK AGAIN OVER THE HOT COALS OF GLCs/SOEs CORRUPTION AND THEFT.

    Thanks to Tun Abdul Razak and his Team, the NEP was fair and just. But the digits 2004-2018 were not fair and just.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem In you we all TRUST. Keep smiling. As you are aware Tun, it’s the DIGITS not the system.

    ” IF SINGAPORE HAD INVESTED IN 4,000 TONS OF GOLD AT US $ 300 PER OUNCE BEFORE THE YEAR 2000, SINGAPORE WOULD HAVE BEEN THE KING OF THE HILL AND NOT JUST A KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOUR. MALAYSIA WOULD HAVE BEEN CAUGHT BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE. This opportunity has now gone forever.

    A fresh headline just released from the Conservative Party Conference at Manchester, United Kingdom arising from what the British would call a ‘ balls out ‘ BREXIT speech by the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson which aptly described by an earthy expression which he said in no uncertain terms,thus

    ” WE WILL LEAVE THE EU COME WHAT MAY ON 31 OCTOBER.”

    Here are the dazzling words spoken by a real PRIME MINISTER WHO WAS BORN TO BE A PRIME MINISTER AND NOT MADE !

    His predecessor Theresa May was like a prim and proper school teacher. As a result, the Europeans roughened her up and gave her no concessions. They extracted from her Pounds Sterling 32 Billion payable for NOTHING. She ended up demoralised and in tears.

    On a similar note, those prime ministers of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs thought they were abang-adeks with tiny Singapore and sidled up to its leadership via hot relationships and very private retreats. They ended up by giving ALL THE GOOD MALAYSIAN ASSETS WHICH TINY SINGAPORE WANTED BADLY AND MORE. IN RETURN THEY GOT NOTHING FROM TINY SINGAPORE. A BOOK WAS PUBLISHED TO TELL THE WORLD THE INCOMPETENCE OF THE MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT CONCERNING OUR UNJUST LOSS OF PULAU BATU PUTEH AT THE HAGUE. During 2004-2018, our beloved Malaysia gave – From precious vital rocks, HSR 99% paid by Malaysia, and everything which the tiny place wanted were given ex-gratis.

    Obviously, these prime ministers were not born to be PRIME MINISTERS because the words SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTERESTS WERE MISSING FROM THEIR VOCABULARY !

    Today, a Anti Fake New Law came into effect in Singapore. This meant the Singapore Government has the sole right to the REAL NEWS or FACTS.

    From 1948-1989, the Cold War, Lee Kuan Yew made billions of US Dollars. With a honest and motivated Government, it was effortless to push Singapore from the Third to the First World. This big one Lee Kuan Yew did not miss.

    After the BRICS pushed him aside with the blessing of Uncle Sam’s post-Cold War hegemonic spiel, ‘ GLOBALIZATION. FREE TRADE. HUMAN RIGHTS ‘ from 1990 onwards to 2019, Lee Kuan Yew missed the OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFE-TIME TO INVEST IN 4,000 TONS OF GOLD AT US$ 300 PER OUNCE BEFORE THE YEAR 2000.

    Thereafter, he created 4 Initiatives to save his Singapore and his Legacy for his inheritors being Temasek, 2 Casinos, FT imports to boost the GDP and the TPPA/CPTPP/CREP Killer for our beloved Malaysia/Malays/SMEs to enslave us forever. All the 4 Initiatives failed by 2019. How ?

    Those cognoscenti who are knowledgeable and fed-up with the small minded ways of Singapore to achieve kiasu things from malleable Malaysian Leaderships 2004-2018 concerning Malaysian National Assets, must wish that the Singapore elite think of other better ways to gain for Singapore and not be obsessed with the riches of bountiful Malaysia all the time 1959-2019.

    A Golden Opportunity has come round again for Singapore to grasp the nettle with both hands provided the Leadership is knowledgeable, courageous and visionary like our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on 9 May 2018.

    The proposal is that SINGAPORE SHOULD CONFEDERATE WITH THE UNITED KINGDOM ON EQUAL TERMS.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. In you we all TRUST. Keep smiling. PRIME MINISTERS ARE BORN LIKE YOU AND BORIS JOHNSON. NOT MADE.

    After a period of calm and dullness in the social media, suddenly all were let loose with headlines of the utmost shame and corruption affecting major Malay Trusts who were administered by Trustees who walloped the Trusts under their care in no uncertain terms and WITHOUT MERCY !

    From the SSM via the Securities Commission ( which had a married duo in action too ) to the bluest of Malay Trusts, LTAT.

    A sad collection of tragedies affecting the Malay elite engaged in active self-immolation and destruction. It is sad also because of the Constitution. All meaningful activities as led by Malay elite affect the non-Malays as well.

    What an unholy mess created by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and the GLCs/SOEs now exposed in black and white. Wherever POWER and MONEY were in residence, none of the institutions escaped the PILLAE. Thus,

    1. ” LTAT TO TABLE FISCAL FLAWS IN PARLIAMENT. REMEDIAL MEASURES BEING TAKEN TO RECTIFY FINANCIAL IRREGULARITIES, SAYS DEFENCE MINISTER.”

    For the very first time, a criminal offence punishable under the Criminal Act is being politicised.

    The ex-CEO Lodin who helmed the LTAT for 35 years should be brave to stand by the alleged accusations.

    Quote NSTP Page 9 2 October 2019, ” The Minister said, IT WAS ALSO DISCOVERED THAT LTAT FORMER CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER HAD A VESTED INTEREST THROUGH OWNING LARGE SHARES WHERE THE BOARD HAD INVESTED.”

    Did the YB Minister allege to ONLY TO THE AES INVESTMENT OR ALL INVESTMENTS MADE BY THE LTAT FOR 35 YEARS BY WHICH LODIN ALSO TOOK AN INTEREST ON LISTING ? Did he forget about the teams of ex-generals surrounding him for 35 years ?

    1MDB, Tabung Haji fell and now LTAT in company with KWAP, FELDA, FGV, SIME DARBY ( bankrupted in 1996 and 2010 at RM 1.2 Billion and RM 2.1 Billion respectively by the same set of Malaysian executives TWICE – the MOTHER OF ALL MALAYSIAN BANKRUPTCIES).

    THESE ARE THE TOP NOTCH MALAY TRUST FUNDS OF MALAYSIA AND THERE ARE ANOTHER 200-300 GLCs/SOEs out in the firmament which are supposed to protect Malay business and make money for them as well.

    2. ” PATRIOT. DON’T PLAY POLITICS WITH LTAT. LET AUDITORS INVESTIGATE.”

    Auditors only audit. Let the Police and the forensic experts do the investigations.

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

    Between 1984-1992, under the Chairmanships of both Tun Tan Siew Sin and Tan Sri Basir Ismail, as Chairman of the Panel for Equity Investments of the Royal Guardian Assurance Berhad owned partly by the LTAT, I could make over RM 30 Million annually better than the insurance premiums. My emolument was only RM 30,000 a year as a non-executive Director 1984-1992.

    3. ” THE GALL OF IT ALL, NAJIB, HISHAMUDDIN. LTAT DID POORLY BECAUSE OF YOU. PATRIOT.”

    It is self-explanatory.

    4. C4 NGO says, ” GIAT UNCOVERS CORRUPTION, POOR GOVERNANCES IN DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS. ”

    In our beloved Malaysia the disease ” ABUSE OF POWER, CORRUPTION AND THEFT OF PUBLIC FUNDS ” is ENDEMIC.

    This is why our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat requires a pukka doctor to sort out her ills brought on by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    5. ” EX-SSM CEO AND SON PLEAD NOT GUILTY TO 33 BRIBERY CHARGES.”

    A Malay elite in self-immolation and her son too.

    WHAT ABOUT THE SECURITIES COMMISSION 2004-2018 ? More big worms there in the woodwork.

    6. ” SHARUL PAID RM 99K A MONTH RECEIVED 18 MONTHS BONUS OF RM 1.4 MILLION.” Working in a one man office.

    Between 1975-1984, I turned round the biggest corporate scandal of 1970’s Malaysia, Folex Industries Berhad in a BN constituency, Taiping, with 1,200 good and hard-working Malay workers on 3 shifts for 9 years. From 1978, Folex was making at least RM 2-4 Million a year . I was not a shareholder. I was paid RM 7,000 per month with one month bonus and an Alfa Romeo car but no housing allowance. At the end of the day, MIDF, HSBC, Standard Chartered, UMBC, Bangkok Bank and Moscow Narodny walked away after being paid their loans in full as though nothing had happened and paid me nothing.

    THE MIDF CONSORTIUM DID NOT BRING OUT A SINGLE SEN THROUGHOUT THE 9 YEARS 1975-1984.

    But horror of horrors, 1MDB borrowed RM 42 Billion and could not make ONE SEN. From now on any Malaysian Prime Minister should run away a kilometre when they meet a stupid fat little boy of no merit.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. The problem begins when fellows are paid RM 1,000,000 a year plus a bonus of RM 1.4 Million for doing no work. Our whole corporate wage scale is bombed out thus ! IHH is known to pay its CEO RM 100 Million a year WITHOUT ASKING QUESTIONS !

    Nowadays, at the drop of the hat, anyone is paid RM 1,000,000 a year. How our beloved corporate Malaysia can reduce costs is the RM64,000 question ? And most are incompetent, ignorant of the ways of business. How ?

    ADDENDUM TO MY PREVIOUS COMMENT.

    For the curious reader who wanted to know more about Lee Kuan Yew’s 47 Failed Public Policies, vide http://www.chedet.cc.org Archives Sept 2010. ‘ Malaysia according to Kuan Yew’.

    A book ‘Great Ideas of Lee Kuan Yew’ published in Singapore October 2014 with laudatory articles on their former BOSS written by the ex-President, ex-Chief Justice, ex- top Officials which unanimously underlined the NON-SEPARATION OF THE LEGISLATURE, EXECUTIVE AND THE JUDICIARY IN SINGAPORE.

    An earlier book was published by the Singapore Government’s top legal eagles in Singapore to sneer at the legal incompetence of the Malaysian Government 2004-2018 in the one-sided case of Pulau Batu Puteh at The Hague.

    An ancient saying,” You must have Peace and Harmony in your house before you win fighting in the streets.”

    At the end of the day, which is now, Malaysia is one of 4 most important countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia. Where are you Singapore ?

    What better crystal ball than Singapore’s current travails in the World of trade for us Malaysians to understand, analyse and visualise what our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat might face in the immediate future ?

    Singapore has always been ultra-sensitive on people like journalists and a few others like me who could dissect the real Singapore sans her Lee Kuan Yew’s bombast, bluffology or BS.

    The Singaporean Government is allergic to facts because their huge Ministry of Information is not about tourists but operates like CIA, MI5, MOSSAD, KGB etc combined in a tiny place.

    This activity to me is just an expression of insecurity coupled with the lack of spatial activity of a physical kind – a tiny place with lots of overworked brains cooped up competing with one another. Hence, none of the Singaporean elite could think out of the box even if they wanted to do for fear of antagonising Daddy.

    Quote Franklin D Roosevelt 1933. ” The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

    Unfortunately for the Singaporeans, we Malaysians have the best crystal ball in the World which is Singapore.

    Before 2000 and the World of the Net, I paid monthly visits to Singapore for business information from friends, tycoons, bankers and taxi-drivers which are at least one month in advance of what was served in Kuala Lumpur.

    Soon, I had Singaporean handlers looking into my activities in pursuit of my business of corporate re-structuring. They wasted time and money by looking and monitoring the wrong person.

    As it is now confirmed, Singapore’s problems are entirely of Lee Kuan Yew’s own making and have nothing to do with anyone else. History is the finest Arbiter of the Truth. He implemented 47 Failed Public Policies in his Life-time.

    IF LEE KUAN YEW MISSED INVESTING IN 4,000 TONS OF GOLD AT US$ 300 PER OUNCE BEFORE THE YEAR 2000, WHO IS TO BLAME ?

    The report on Singapore’s falling export trade in August, 2019, continued

    ” The factory output of Singapore plunged in August by the most in almost four years, a sign that the city state’s manufacturing down turn could be deepening.. Industrial production dropped 8% from a year earlier, the weakest since December 2015 and worst than all the forecasts in a BLOOMBERG survey of economists.”

    With informative reports like this, we Malaysians understand in advance the mind-sets of the Singapore Government with Malaysia in relationship to the TPPA/CPTPP/CREP, the Lee Kuan Yew created Malaysia/Malays/SMEs Killer and more.

    Not only that, this information casts an important light on HOW STRONG WILL OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S INCUMBENT GOVERNMENT LEADERSHIP BE TO WARD OFF EXTERNAL NEGATIVE FORCES ATTEMPTING TO ENSLAVE US, THE FRIENDLY AND HOSPTABLE MALAYSIANS ?

    We all certainly want to live, survive and enjoy Life under a TRUSTWORTHY AND COMPETENT NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT AS LED BY OUR TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY HIS SIDE ! Who doesn’t ?

    Further, by taking the wrong step and being EXCLUSIVE, Lee Kuan Yew MISSED THE FULL INTENT AND ERROR BY THE UNITED STATES AFTER THE END OF THE COLD WAR 1948-1989. TWO WEAPONS WERE INVOLVED AT ALL TIMES, TRADE AND WAR !

    Uncle Sam pushed his hegemonic spiel, ” Globalization. Free Trade. Human Rights.’ which actually blessed the BRICS to grab Lee Kuan Yew’s ultra secret UNMENTIOINABLE AND QUESTIONABLE TRADES OF THE COLD WAR 1948-1989, BLESSED BY UNCLE SAM. Overnight, Singapore lost her magic of garnering a fantastic monetary reserve of nearly US$ 600 Billion – 1 Trillion housed in the GIC 1948-1989.

    As is now recorded in history, the finest arbiter of the Truth, Singapore is the SOLE CASUALTY POST COLD WAR 1948-1989. THE BRICS THE SOLE WINNERS.

    Hence, it is alright for super nations to rectify what they thought were mistakes. The US-Sino Trade War and other trade wars will be with us for sometime because the World’s super-power wants to right a wrong in her National Interest.

    We Malaysians must have enlightened mind-sets as advised by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in keeping with the times.

    Information will open our eyes, our minds and our thoughts to achieve greater things for our beloved Malaysia. See what is happening to Singapore now without the leadership of bombastic Lee Kuan Yew.

    A normal and competent Leadership of any country including the United States and Britain is most relevant like our beloved Malaysia today.

    GOOD LEADERS ARE BORN, NOT MADE WITHOUT REFERRING TO OTHER EXAMPLES..

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Singapore is a good crystal ball for us Malaysians. I have always been pro-Singapore from young like you.

    There is a gathering of momentum created by interested parties to discover the end of your tenure as the Prime Minister of our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat.

    I will tell these busy-bodies that only our beloved Tun knows best. The headline, thus

    ‘ ‘ 3 MORE YEARS AT THE MOST – MAHATHIR SAYS HE WILL THEN BOW OUT. ‘

    History is the finest arbiter of the Truth.

    When you announced that you would retire in October 2003, Lee Kuan Yew planned his Free Trade Scheme with the intention of enslaving our beloved Malaysia to save his Singapore and his Legacy for his inheritors.

    Other plans were to make the Malaysians run to The Hague to find out about the status of Pulau Batu Putih even though our Governments 1957-2003 were certain it belonged to Malaysia. With a judicial sleigh of hand, Malaysia lost.

    And all Lee Kuan Yew’s cohorts sharpened their brains to plan for the journey to the land of the low-hanging fruits which was our beloved Malaysia.

    This was the 2nd round of creaming the goodies of Malaysia by the famished Singaporeans. The 1st round began with the 1962 Water Agreement 1962-2000.

    The Second Round of harvesting Malaysian assets by Singapore from 2004-2018 could be listed as follows :

    1. Pulau Batu Puteh. 2. KTM lands and rails. 3. Air space encroachment. 4. The Avenue. 5. The UMNO owned NSTP Chief Editors Chair which also included a Sime Darby Apache Deal. 6. The 4th Floor Boys showed the quickest Way to the opened doors of the Khazanah. 7. Big bucks from 1MDB. 8. HSR will be paid 90% by Malaysia as the train runs 90% on Malaysian soil. 9. The Malaysia/Malays/SME Killer signed but not ratified. 10. In 2005, an International Trade Arbitration Centre for the TPPA. 11. Sale of Kim Securities to Maybank for RM 1.2 Billion.12. Miscellaneous.

    Malaysia gained nothing from Singapore 2004-2018. Stupid.

    TUN THAT WAS WHAT COULD BE PERCEIVED AFTER OCTOBER 2003.

    HISTORY IS THE FINEST ARBITER OF THE TRUTH.

    Our beloved Malaysia lost ALL OF WHAT SINGAPORE DESIRED !

    In June, 2009, Lee Kuan Yew aged 85, paid a visit to our beloved Malaysia, THE FUTURE ENSLAVED COLONY OF SINGAPORE to exhort his digits, cohorts, troops, swallows, ducks, spies, tycoons, treasonous Civil Servants, fellow travelling politicians, MCA leaders in red mandarin silks, tea for two off Jalan Duta and on the way to the airport, a perfunctory visit to our beloved Tun.

    Thereafter, MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES. All Lee Kuan Yew contrived initiatives failed.

    As I said always, it is up to Tun to decide for the future which is our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat. The above facts are self-explanatory.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. WE MUST ALL REMEMBER THAT OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD IS NO ORDINARY PRIME MINISTER. He is a giant of our time who saved a country and her peoples in the NICK OF TIME FROM ENSLAVEMENT BY LITTLE SINGAPORE VIA THE TPPA/CPTPP/CREP. He decides what is best for ALL taking into consideration recent history – the Finest Arbiter of the Truth.

    Tun,

    Over the week-end, it was announced that the Investigative Report on the LTAT and its Group of companies, Boustead Plantations was completed – a large Malay Trust administered by Trustees. This will give an overview for all to see the extent of malfeasance which took place therein in recent times, thus

    1. ‘ AUDIT EXPOSES FINANCIAL IRRECULARITIES AT LTAT. THE EVENTS INCLUDING OVERSTATEMENT OF ASSETS, TOOK PLACE UNDER LODIN’S WATCH.’

    2. ‘ LTAT FINISHES ASSESSMENT. ARMED FORCES FUND FINDS SIGNIFICANT FINANCIAL IRREGULARITIES.’

    3. The Edge, 15 April 2019, ‘ CRUNCH TIME FOR BOUSTEAD. QUESTIONS ABOUT BOUSTEAD PLANTATIONS RM 750 MILLION LAND BUY IN SABAH. ‘

    4. Over the week-end at the UN, Prime Minister Imran Khan said, ‘ IT IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO RETRIEVE STOLEN MONEY FROM THE WESTERN COUNTRIES.’

    Today, an official of the LTAT Group said that there were no criminal acts found in the assessed accounts by the professional accountants.

    This fellow does not know that all accountants tell us that even if a ringgit could not be placed, this fact might lead to the discovery of millions of ringgits missing. It is time for all Trusts to have Trustees who understand MONEY.

    This infamous oil palm estate in Sabah was well-known as a PONDAN estate. It was in the market for over 20 years at half the price of RM 750 Million paid by LTAT/Boustead Plantations.

    Not only that, the estate consisted only of about 12,000 acres which cost RM 750 Million. This worked out to be the highest price paid for an acre of unproductive oil palm without valuation and without normal mature oil palms.

    In other words, for so much money, Boustead Plantations bought an empty piece of land for RM 750 Million just before the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs were ousted on 9 May 2018.

    With this damning report of the inside activities of the LTAT Group concerning money which ballooned its debts to OVER RM 2 BILLION. any member of the public so aggrieved should make a Report to the Police and the MACC.

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Our beloved Malaysia must retrieve all THE STOLEN MONEY BY THESE CROOKS EVEN IF IT TAKES 100 YEARS.

    ADDENDUM TO MY PREVIOUS COMMENT.

    This MCA Leader used Sime Darby to whip up the chauvinism of the Malaysian Chinese after 1976 for his own ends. To be effective, this MCA Leader called me a ‘MALAY BUM SUCKER’ to stimulate the Chinese. AT THE END OF THE DAY, THOSE WHO SUPPORTED HIM ESPECIALLY THOSE FROM HIS ISLAND CLAN LOST HUGE SUMS OF MONEY. He was alright in money terms but paid for it in kind by being charged as a felony by both sides of the Causeway.

    I suppose MCA Leaders will be left high and dry by their paternalistic politics when they do not understand the important words like SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST after decades in the political game.

    Recently, a young dying Singaporean medical consultant said,’ MONEY WILL NOT BUY HAPPINESS IN THIS WORLD.’

  254. mubarakchan Sep 29,2019 11:46 PM

    Tun,

    There are certain headlines against your forthcoming attendance at the MALAY DIGNITY CONGRESS next month, thus

    1. ” DR M TO DELIVER FINAL MESSAGE AT MALAY CONGRESS DUE TO THREATS FROM HYPOCRITES.”

    2. ” MCA VEEP SAYS DR M ATTENDING MALAY CONGRESS WILL AGGRAVATE TENSIONS.”

    It is good very good that our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will attend this important Malay Congress because he is the only Statesman with the standing to present his views and advice for the majority community of Malaysia.

    He is not only qualified to do so but also his record of Leadership in Malaysian politics stretched back to the 1950s when the majority was not born yet. Because of our peculiar historical history and the eagerness of fake politicians to twist and turn facts to gain an advantage, the Rakyat always require a person who is properly qualified to advice, guide and visualize the events to come in the name of peace and harmony.

    I expect him to highlight the following points, thus

    1. ‘THERE IS NO GREATER FEAR THAN THE FEAR OF FEAR ITSELF.” F.D. Roosevelt 1933. That Malaysia’s progress in peace, harmony and prosperity which were with us for centuries, can only be achieved by ALL RAKYAY to push the wheel of success to create a better GDP.

    2. The Malays have come a long way thanks to the 4 distinguished and honest Prime Ministers the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad WHO ALL SAFE-GUARDED THE MALAYS TO THE PRESENT GLITTERING HEIGHTS. THE NON-MALAYS BENEFITTED TOO.

    3. THE MALAYS SUFFERED 14 YEARS OF SET-BACKS FROM 2004-2018 WHICH BY RIGHT THE MALAY MIDDLE INCOME GROUP SHOULD BE STRENGTHENED AND EXPANDED AS WELL AS THE FISHERFOLK, FARMERS AND PLANTERS. CONCOMITANTLY THE NON-MALAYS WOULD BE BENEFITTED AS WELL. This did not happen 2004-2018. But the New and Incorruptible Government will hasten the Recovery Process to the best of tis ability which it is doing now.

    4. A FEW BAD EGGS AT THE TOP WILL NOT AFFECT THE REST OF THE MALAYS WHO ARE STILL LIKE ALL THE NON-MALAYS – NORMAL.

    Our beloved Malaysia was fortunate we had 4 distinguished, qualified and honest Prime Ministers being the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to guide our beloved Malaysia and the Rakyat from 1957-2003, 46 years.

    From 2004 to 2018, the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs took over and did nothing which is in the interest of Sovereignty and National Interest to safeguard the well-being in the years to come. Our beloved Malaysia was brought down to her knees – a once rich country which is now poor created by her own elected representative.

    In other words, ALL money were stolen from the Government coffers with an ADDITIONAL RM 1 Trillion Government Debt. These irresponsible Leaders took now and forgot the future.

    During this period of Self Indulgence and Self Interest, all Malaysians suffered – the Malays the most – loss of 30%-59% because of the loss of Govt. subsidies, The non-Malays at least 30%. All our WEALTH was thinned out by inflation, ringgit depreciation, drop in property values and salaries, unemployment, etc.

    IT IS TIMELY THAT ALL MALAYSIANS ARE TOLD BY OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD THAT UNDER HIS CREDITABLE AND HONEST LEADERSHIP, ALL WILL BE RECOVERED EVENTUALLY AND THE CROOKS PUT INTO JAIL.

    Malaysia must be the ONLY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD IN WHICH A GANG OF ELECTED POLITICIANS GANG RAPED THEIR OWN COUNTRY COMPLETELY OF ITS FINANCIAL RESOURCES OF A ONCE RICH COUNTRY TO MAKE IT POOR.

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

    The MCA served its community well in the 1950s-1960s. Thereafter, MCA had leaders who could remit S$ 100 Million from Singapore to the Hong Kong accounts of girl friends via my friend in the mid-1980s.

    The same MCA Leader called me a ‘MALAY BUM SUCKER’ because my 1972 Concept to capture Sime Darby PLC not only benefitted the Malays but also the non-Malays – was in the NATIONAL INTEREST and was supported by the Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak and YBM Tengku Razaleigh Hamazah.

    My 1972 Sime Darby Concept was to put the Malays on the fast trek to do big business and avoid obstructing the non-Malays to do their businesses because as at 13 May 1969, the Malays had only 2% of the economy’s assets, the British had 70% of the best and the Chinese 25% of the third rate.

    This MCA Leader walloped Benta Berhad from Sime Darby with the help of the ex-MCA Chairman. In 1990, he walloped 2,000 acres of Nova Scotia Estate of Sime Darby, near Rawang for only RM 4 Million with the assistance of Sime Darby’s Malaysian Management. This land was shuffled up to RM 88 Milion via a listed company and sold to Selangor Perangsaan and a Chinese who specialised in developing tropical slums.

    With a long record of business dealings by MCA Leaders, how can anyone from MCA be qualified to be political these days ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. We all have our TRUST in you. Keep smiling.

    A major issue on the Poverty Rate in Malaysia has become a matter of serious concern.

    The Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs claimed in 2016 that it was only 0.6 per cent.

    In recent weeks, a UN expert Philip Alston disputed this figure as being too low at RM 980 per month as the Malaysian poverty rate line. It was suggested to be nearer RM 2,000 per month.

    The new figure gives a revised Poverty Rate at 16 per cent to 20 per cent. As trained scientists, we can only accept factual and scientifically collated statistics. Or else the whole of the World will be up-side down with fudged statistics.

    I have noted for decades that the Statistics Department needed up-grading. Also, the agency known as SIRIM which governs standards should face the same fate. Both have vital roles to play. Both seemed to be Cinderallas, forgotten and neglected because these have NO POWER OR MONEY. Still, these Agencies do play a vital role in the conduct of the planning of the Government’s Policies with an overview of all Rakyat which come under their aegis.

    As it is, the latest UN expose’ on the poverty rate line of Malaysia reveals a huge discrepancy between the TRUTH AND FICTION.

    As Phlip Alston the UN expert rightly pointed out that ” ACTUAL POVERTY RATES ARE MUCH HIGHER THAN OFFICIAL FIGURES SUGGEST AND THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO RE-ASSESS HOW IT MEASURES POVERTY SO THAT THE HARDSHIPS MANY MALAYSIANS EXPERIENCE IS NOT CONJURED OUT OF EXISTENCE BY A STATISTICAL SLEIGHT OF HAND. LARGE PARTS ARE LEFT BEHIND AND MANY PEOPLE LIVING ABOVE THE OFFICIAL POVERTY LINE ARE IN FACT IN POVERTY.”

    As I often said in recent times, the Corrupt BN Leadership with its wanton financial rape and vandalism of our beloved Malaysia between 2004-2018 brought her to her knees.

    THE WHOLE COUNTRY BECAME POOR AND IMPOVERISHED. NO ONE WAS EXCEPTED, THE RICH AND THE POOR’S WEALTH WAS REDUCED BY 30 per cent – 50 per cent DURING THIS PERIOD 2004 – 2018. This is the stark problem today which faces us. The brutality of the Corrupt BN Government Leadership knew no bounds.

    Our beloved Malaysia cannot avoid from being POOR when over RM 1.5 Trillion was siphoned out of the country between 2002 – 2018 as reported by the UN, World Bank, IMF Annual Reports.

    For the Corrupt BN Government to fudge the Statistics on Poverty, this is what I have called DECEITFUL. Therefore, these crooks with the fake figures in mind, brazenly TOOK ALL THE MONEY FROM THE GOVERNMENT COFFERS ON THE FAKE ASSUMPTION THAT MALAYSIA WAS RICH.

    Yes ! All countries are rich as long as the Revenue and Expenditure of the Government are BALANCED. In our beloved Malaysia’s case, the crooks just financially raped and vandalised ALL on a false assumption concocted by themselves which is now exposed by the UN.

    There is no doubt that Government Policies cannot rely on FALSE ASSUMPTIONS which in Malaysia’s case have turned a once Rich country into a Poor one.

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan. Bring back the Trillions of ringgit. I am certain all countries of the World will assist us, nice and hospitable Malaysians !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem

    More turmoil and drama in the United Kingdom. First it was Parliament who defied the people by delaying Brexit. Now the judiciary, who is supposed to be apolitical, is using its power in effect to stop Brexit, however the judges want to dress it as. So both Parliament and Judiciary are going against its own people, acting as if they know better than the voters, on how to think. Only the Prime Minister and the Executive are with the people, no matter what.
    It is a very testing time for world democracy, when people who are elected to represent the nation, and now a group of unelected judges (!), are not practicing what they preach.

    Hooray ! Our classic Malaysian mornings with sunshine and blue skies are back this morning after many weeks of our beloved Kuala Lumpur shrouded in pea-soup fog like in ye olde wintry London.

    Even my missing friends the bulbuls nesting in the young banyan tree in front of my house, returned for a perfunctory visit. Their chirping warmed my thoughts.

    But unfortunately and typically, all is forgotten and forgiven about yesterday in a flash until next August when the same will come back with greater impact and vengeance. And so it is with Humankind whether in Malaysia or Hong Kong.

    The Rakyat was meek and mild between 2004-2018 when the unexpected became the expected of human greed and weakness of the flesh.

    The Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs, raped and vandalised our beloved Malaysia financially.

    Even today, the Rakyat has not reacted to this which brought down our beloved Malaysia to her knees and all our WEALTH, like land assets, ringgit, standard of living, jobs, salaries etc depreciated by at least 30%-50%.

    Just yesterday, my favourite nasi lemak jumped RM 1 from RM 3.50 to RM 4.50 ! It used to be only 75 sens !

    Like this, how could the Malays be weaned from their crutches ? Time and money lost from 2004-2018 as all the evidence confirmed.

    The above-mentioned sufferings of ALL could be explained by the following headlines, thus :

    1. ” LIM: GOVT NEGOTIATING WITH CHINA. CONTRACTORS PAID 88PC OF CONTRACT VALUE OF RM 9.3B THOUGH ONLY 13PC OF PROJECTS COMPLETED.”

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

    2. ” PROF JOMO: IT IS NOT LATE TO CANCEL THE ECRL PROJECT. ”

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

    3. ” GOVT. TO PAY COMPENSATION FOR DELAY IN THE HSR PROJECT.”

    Catch the crooks. Charge them in Court. 10 strokes of the rotan.

    On the above-mentioned useless and gigantic projects, it is now alleged in Court that these were related to the bailing out of 1MDB.

    Prof Jomo is correct as an economics expert – CANCEL THE WHOLE LOT AND SAVE THE MONEY FOR OUR FISHERMEN, FARMERS AND PLANTERS AND STRENGTHEN THE MALAY MIDDLE INCOME GROUP SO THAT THE NON-MALAYS BENEFIT AS WELL.

    The poverty in Malaysia today was caused by the raping and vandalism of the Nation’s financial reserves by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.( hundreds of them ). Vide, UN, World Bank, IMF Reports. Between 2002-2018, RM 1.5 Trillion was siphoned out to overseas.

    Because of these shameful acts, POVERTY RETURNED TO OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA. It has nothing to do with the airy-fairy STATISTICS.

    Further headlines for noting, thus :-

    4. ” UNPRINCIPLED LEADERS WANT MALAYS TO STAY SHACKLED.” This headline should be,

    ” THE MALAYS REMAIN SHACKLED BECAUSE ALL THEIR MONIES WERE STOLEN BY UNPRINCIPLED LEADERS BETWEEN 2004-2018.” This is factual. The other headline is emotional confusion.

    5. ” LET’S SET ASIDE OUR EGOS TO BOOST UNITY.” This headline is not only misleading but factually wrong. It should be thus,

    ” IT’S NOT OUR EGOS, RACE OR RELIGION, IT’S THE EMPTY COFFERS LEFT BY THE CORRUPT BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018, STUPID.”

    6. ” UPS AND DOWNS IN A NATION’S LIFE. ” This fellow must have taken a holiday in Mars between 2004-2018 or he is a Martian. He puts the blame on something airy-fairy AND NOT ON THE WANTON RAPE AND VANDALISM BY THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE AND GLCs/SOEs which left the Government coffers completely empty and a titanic debt of over RM 1 Trillion.

    Sir, as it is said, ” No money. No honey.”

    I reckon only two tragedies happened in our beloved Malaysia between 1957 to 2018. BOTH WERE CREATED BY OUR OWN HANDS. The first was unintentional and the second deliberate.

    i) 13 May 1969 Tragedy which was human made through many factors.

    The main factor was the ignorance and complacency of the Ministers of Finance 1957-1969.

    The British Colonial Currency Board Policy was permitted to continue even after Merdeka. This Policy meant that a country only spent what it earned. This created an illiquid economy with the rich getting richer, the poor became poorer. The Currency Board was only disbanded in 1972. I was there.

    ii) 2004-2018. The Dark Age of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs.

    The Second Tragedy caused by elected crooks who were IMMORAL AND DECEITFUL. Even with all the suffering by the Rakyat today, there is no expression of regrets and remorse by them, top to bottom

    During this period, a rich country like our beloved Malaysia was raped and vandalised financially by those the Rakyat elected into POWER. Malaysia is now POOR and lack money to do her traditional projects for the benefit of ALL RAKYAT. This sad state of affair is of our own making by being meek and mild during 2004-2018.

    PLEASE SEE THAT IT IS NOT EGOS, RACE OR RELIGION BUT THE TOTAL THEFT OF GOVERNMENT MONEY BY CROOKS 2004-2018 WHICH IS THE PROBLEM TODAY FOR THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT TO SUBSIDIZE OR SPEND MORE IN KEEPING WITH OUR TRADITIONAL POLICIES 1957-2003 TO BENEFIT THE RAKYAT.

    This sad Malaysian event is exactly like what is happening in Hong Kong today. The Hong Kong folk was meek and mild in 1984 when a UN Guarantee should have been obtained for the 1984 Agreement. Now, with all the sound, fire and fury, it is absolutely ineffective because there is no locus standi to change the 1984 Agreement. The die was cast long long ago in 1984.

    7. ” MALAYSIA NEEDS A PRO-GROWTH BUDGET – SERC.” Sounds great. But where is the money, dear sir ?

    All the money was stolen by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs. NOT ONLY THAT OUR BELOVED COUNTRY IS FURTHER SADDLED WITH A RM 1 TRILLION OF DEBTS DUE FROM THE GOVERNMENT !

    8. ” KEEPING FINGERS CROSSED FOR MEASURES TO SPUR PROPERTY MARKET.”

    The fact is the over-supply of housing units in Malaysia was caused by 14 years of corruption and abuse of approvals by the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs. The huge number of approvals was caused by wanton corruption and abuse without controls.

    i) The New and Incorruptible Government can easily push this property market if :-

    a. The Government has the money
    b. The banks are in good order.
    c. The economy is sound and stable.

    ii) If the Government just release the brakes and declare that there is no limit on lending by banks to customers to buy properties, overnight the market will fly.

    BUT WOULD ANY PRUDENT AND RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT DARES TO BE SO RECKLESS IN THE FACE OF GROSS FINANCIAL THEFT BY THE CORRUPT BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. At least Malaysia’s famed mornings of sunshine and blue skies have returned. In you we all TRUST. Keep smiling.

    ADDENDUM ON MY COMMENT, ” MALAYS WITHOUT CRUTCHES “.

    It is alleged that the ex-scholars of the Federal Government and its Agencies are owed billions of ringgits by them. High Government Officials have complained about this state of affairs from time to time. I noticed the sum of money owed by these ex-scholars seemed to have reached a grid-lock – impossible to re-pay the loans given the circumstances as created by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elite, GLCs/SOEs.

    I believe the explanation of this state of awkward affair is due to the NEGLECT AND ABANDONMENT OF THE AGE-OLD POLICIES BY THE SINGAPOEAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE GLCs/SOEs.

    Traditionally, the Federal Government expands our Malaysian economy by spending on development which did not happen between 2004-2018. This spending creates jobs, salaries, etc with the snowball effect of the money seeping throughout the whole economic system

    During the Corrupt BN Government the money was siphoned off from the public system into private pockets. This resulted in the non-creation of jobs, salaries, etc. which snowballed into a money-less VOID FOR THE RAKYAT.

    How to re-pay the Federal Government and its Agencies when the economy was stagnant as created by the corrupt BN Government 2004-2018 ?

  259. mubarakchan Sep 24,2019 9:48 AM

    Tun

    Our beloved Malaysia is such an interesting country with her diversity of many communities living in peace and harmony for so many centuries. Sometimes, we forget that many countries in the World have different communities living in conflict next to each other. The latter is not a happy state of affairs.

    And yet, some of our Malaysians without regard to facts and history keep on harping on certain reforms which could only come about in a homogenous community or Society.

    For example, the creation of the 6 million middle income Malay families from zero base on 13 May 1969 by our beloved Tun singlehandedly was in itself astounding.

    Yet after October 2003, these urbanised Malaysians were LEFT IN THE LURCH BY THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE AND GLCs/SOEs because SELF-INDULGENCE AND SELF-INTEREST WAS THE ORDER OF THE DAY. The raping and thefts of public coffers went on for 14 years at a time when the 6 million families middle income Malays should have been further expanded and sustained. No ! They were all forgotten.

    IN TURN THIS LEFT THE NON-MALAY 6 MILLION MIDDLE INCOME GROUP IN A LURCH. Both groups which made up the political stability and resilience of a Nation were not only neglected but also floundering without a LEADERSHIP.

    A rich country made poor by its own elected representatives 2004-2018.

    Within the context of this horrible and avoidable void cause by neglect, self-indulgence and self-interest, THERE ARE CALLS FOR THE MALAYS TO ABANDON THEIR CRUTCHES.

    I disagree on this call because the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 neglected and abandoned not only the Malaysian Middle Income Groups but also the farmers, fishermen and planters by RAPING AND VANDALISING OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA which resulted in zero public service efforts. Much time was lost – 14 years of neglect of the whole Malaysian Society of 31 millions souls.

    Only in Malaysia, we see such absurd tolerance of CORRUPTION AND THEFT OF PUBLIC MONEY openly and without protests by the Rakyat – 2004-2018.

    WHEN THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 WAS FLUSHED WITH FUNDS, NOTHING WAS DONE FOR THE RAKYAT ACCORDING TO OUR AGE-OLD GOVERNMENT POLICIES.

    This was the right time to strengthen the wherewithal of the Malays in preparation for their future advancement WITHOUT CRUTCHES.

    What we got here was complete neglect and abandonment which was distracted by the absurd NS training camps which were set-up with the usual absurd excuse,’ It is good for Singapore.’ But the fact was the NS System was corrupt from top to bottom by the billions of ringgits with nothing to show for it.

    Now the coffers of the New and Incorruptible Government lack money due to the wanton rape and vandalism of the Singapore Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring Government 2004-2018.

    How to remove the crutches from the Malays who were abandoned by their elected BN Government 2004-2018 ?

    In other words, THE MALAYS WERE ABANDONED BY THE BN GOVERNMENT AT MID-STREAM AFTER CROSSING THE RIVER AS WERE ENCOURAGED. 14 PRECIOUS YEARS AND MONEY WERE LOST DUE TO THE SELF-INDULGENCE AND SELF-INTEREST OF THE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES OF THE RAKYAT.

    At the present moment, without the lubricant for success which is money, no one can really determine how to wean the crutches from the Malays as we the Non-Malays ARE ALSO SUFFERING TOO IN A FORMERLY RICH COUNTRY RAPED AND VANDALISED DRY OF MONEY AND ALL OUR WEALTH HAS BEEN REDUCED BY 30%-50% BY THESE CROOKS WHO ALL HAVE FAT BANK ACCOUNTS OVERSEAS.

    Do not forget that those monies as mentioned in the High Court cases are but just a tiny tip of THE GIGANTIC ICEBERG OF STOLEN MONEY DEPOSITED OVERSEAS AS CONFIRMED BY THE UN, WORLD BANK AND IMF ANNUAL REPORTS WHICH STATED RM 1.5 TRILLION WERE SIPHONED OVERSEAS 2002-2018 !

    With such statistics, how to remove the crutches from the Malays who are already badly affected by the lack of Government funds, and indirectly the Non-Malays suffer as well because of our CONSTITUTION ! Money which should have been used for the ADVANCEMENT OF ALL BUT NOW IN THE DEEP POCKET OF A FEW DEPOSITED OVERSEAS !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem with your MIND-SET. In you we all TRUST. Keep smiling.

  260. mubarakchan Sep 24,2019 1:10 AM

    Tun,

    THE SECOND ADDENDUM ON MY COMMENT ON THE TPPA/CPTPP/CREP AS CRAFTED BY THE SNEAKY LEE KUAN YEW.

    Let us compare the mind-sets of TWO GIANTS we all know. On the one hand, our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and on the other, Lee Kuan Yew.

    On our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who was detested by those who were lackadaisical because they did not perform to our Tun’s little black book which all doctors carry. So these lay-abouts called him authoritarian. What is so authoritarian by pointing out to lazy fellows who malinger which all doctors hate.

    Then, we have the scandalous closest aides who all pretended to our Tun that they understood his advice on the 88th Floor but actually their mind-sets were in the basement working on how much they could WALLOP with the POWER entrusted to them THEY ALL WALLOPED WITHOUT EXCEPTION BUT FOR ONE.

    There was always the red line in the sand which should not be crossed. They all caused the scandals and blamed their patron.

    A foreigner even used his patron’s name to kick out Tun’s friend so that he could sell billions of ringgits of cheap and unvalued assets to his friends in Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur. Thereafter, he could collect Stradivarius violins at US$ 5 Million a piece. This crooked fellow was carrying our distinguished and capable Tan Sri Basir Ismail’s Samsonite in a small JB factory only 10 years before this.

    The scandals created by the CLOSEST AIDES ARE LEGEND AMONGST BUSINESS CIRCLES.

    Why do I always mentioned our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as HUMBLE ?

    Here are the TRUE reasons, thus :-

    1. How many Malaysians know that our Tun encouraged an ordinary Japanese restaurateur to set up shop in Kuala Lumpur ? I am not talking about his famous bakery shops but an ordinary Japanese person from Hokkaido. By chance, I met him at his restaurant and he proudly showed me a photo showing him and our Tun standing side by side. This Japanese investor has made good and returned to Hokkaido and invited me to visit him sometime. His name was Mori.

    2. How many Malaysians are aware that our Tun encouraged a Bosnian refugee to set up a chain of pizzeria and cafes in Kuala Lumpur from scratch with just some seed money from a friend ? This Bosnian made good as well – a story I know very well as his Bosnian refugee employees were my tenants. I could monitor the progress of their Boss from zero to millions of ringgits by capitalizing on the cuisine needs of the KL folk. Another success story due to our beloved Tun.

    3. How many Malaysians have bumped into Tun and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah at the Ampang Park and Sogo Malls at about 8.30 p.m. ? I bumped into them by accident. There was only one bodyguard with them.

    The above-mentioned facts are true indications of why our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is HUMBLE but with a POWERFUL MIND-SET.

    4. During our beloved Tun’s 22 year Administration, all his concepts were correct BUT ALL WERE LET DOWN BY THE CLOSEST AIDES EXCEPT ONE. HE APPLIED ONLY BROAD STROKES ON THE HUGE MALAYSIA CANVAS WITH HARDLY A FAILURE IN POLICY. THE EVIDENCE IS FOR ALL TO SEE.

    At the end, the total debt was only RM 350 Billion in 2003 after 22 years, unlike the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs which left a titanic debt of over RM 1 Trillion after 14 years in office – 2004-2018. WITH NOTHING TO ACCOUNT FOR IT !

    On Lee Kuan Yew who was obsessed with himself and Malaysia the whole Life-long, his sneaky way of extracting the 1962 Water Agreement spoke volumes of the man who always liked to win and was a bad loser.

    The list of the many sneaky ways which Singapore gained advantage over Malaysia from 1962 – 2018 are as long as both arms.

    With the continuous blasts of his cleverness and competence via the media all over the World, information was dished out by the out-sized Singapore Ministry of Information using government resources. At the end of the day, he was found to be a GIANT with feet of clay. During his Lifetime, he promulgated at least 47 failed Public Policies. The notable ones are as follows :-

    i) Lee Kuan Yew created Singapore’s Anti-Cambridge and godless neo-communistic Political System bolstered by apparatchiks and GLCs supported by the West.

    ii) Lee Kuan Yew’s 2 Child Family Policy of 1972 to produce Singaporean geniuses was an utter failure which was withdrawn in the early 1980s. Instead of geniuses, today Singapore has only 900,000 Chinese males aged 21-50. Vide Singapore Government White Paper on Population 2011.

    iii) Lee Kuan Yew’s obsession to do down our beloved Malaysia brought him meagre returns like the rocks of Pulau Batu Puteh, KTM lands and rails, even the 1962 Water Agreement etc which do not amount to much in the 21st Century. All Singapore got from 1962 to 2018 ARE SMALL MINDED THINGS AS BEFIT A NATION WITH A KIASU MIND ! At the end of the day, our beloved Malaysia is one of 4 important small countries of the World being Britain, Japan, Switzerland and Malaysia.

    iv) Lee Kuan Yew who prided himself to be a genius could not THINK out of the box like our beloved Tun.

    HE MISSED THE BIGGEST OPPORTUNITY OF HIS LIFE BY FAILING TO INVEST IN 4,000 TONS OF GOLD BEFORE 2000 AT US$ 300 per ounce. What brought his downfall was his adulation of the West and all its values.

    He could not free himself from his tomes which never left him since his peak days at Cambridge. In other words, it is sad to note that Lee Kuan Yew despite all his self-acclaimed mental prowess, JUST COULD NOT THINK OUT OF THE BOX UNLIKE OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD AND HIS MINDSET. It is just like comparing chalk and cheese. One is a true GIANT whilst the other was a GIANT with feet of clay. Hence, he missed GOLD, a Life-saver for Singapore and Lee Kuan Yew’s Legacy and his inheritors.

    The golden opportunity for Singapore to use GOLD as a international political leverage is gone forever. It was as simple as that. Unfortunately, Lee Kuan Yew missed controlling just one important commodity to rule Malaysia and the World.

    MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES.

    Without GOLD, only 4,000 tons of it, SINGAPORE IS NOW IN A REAL DILEMMA WHATEVER THIS MEANS.

    GOLD could have created a new industry of banks, security warehouses, jewellery, refineries, bonds, etc and Singapore on top of the World with the Superpowers the United States 7,000 tons, Germany 4,000 tons, France 3,000 tons, Italy 3,000 tons, Russia 2,000 tons, India 1,000 tons and China 2,000 tons.

    GOLD would have made Lee Kuan Yew a true GIANT like our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who did it WITHOUT GOLD. But instead, Lee Kuan Yew is proven to have feet of clay at the end of the day. It was the MINDSET as our Tun had said many a-time or the ability to think out of the box.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem

    ADDENDUM TO MY PREVIOUS COMMENTS ON TPPA/CPTPP/CREP – The Malaysia/Malays/SMEs KILLER.

    For many years, I have been dead against the sneaky Lee Kuan Yew’s creation of the Free Trade Scheme which morphed into Obama’s TPPA after October 2008. And eventually the CPTPP after being aborted by Trump through Singapore’s hidden efforts.

    Here are TWO LEARNED ACADEMICIANS WHO PUT FORWARD SOLID ARGUMENTS WITH STATISTICS THAT THE TPPA/CPTPP/CREP IS BUNKUM FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA.

    In other words, these learned academicians’ honest advice here IGNORED BY THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE AND GLCs/SOEs. in their haste to betray our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat for filthy lucre WITHOUT DUE CONSIDERATION FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST.

    For my fellow compatriots, the references are as follows. By reading them, you understand the DECEIT, THE BS OR BLUFFOLOGY WHICH THE CROOKS TRIED TO HOOD WINK US INTO SUBMISSION AS THE SLAVES OF SINGAPORE FOREVER BY RATIFYING THE TPPA/CPTPP/CREP – THE SNEAKY TRAP CREATED BY LEE KUAN YEW FOR THE SURVIVAL OF SINGAPORE AND HER INHERITORS.

    1. Prof. Jomo – His written opinion on the TPPA/CPTPP/CREP in relation to Malaysia. Vide. Social Media.

    2. UNCTAD. BACKGROUND PAPER. ‘ TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT (TPPA): IMPLICATIONS FOR MALAYSIA’S DOMESTIC VALUE-ADDED TRADE. RASHMI BANGA. UNCTAD.

    Please note TEXTILES ARE NO LONGER A BIG TICKET ITEM SINCE THE ENTRY OF CHINA IN 1982. Without this, the whole lot of items concerning Malaysia is just one big BS.

    BY STUDYING THIS UNCTAD BACKGROUND PAPER NO. RVC-12, you will understand HOW TREACHEROUS THE SINGAPORE PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 AND ITS CORRUPT ELITE WERE IN THEIR HASTE TO SELL OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AND ITS RAKYAT TO SINGAPORE – THE SOLE BENEFICIARY OF THE TPPA/CPTPP/CREP.

    We the Rakyat become Singapore’s slaves forever if any incumbent Government ratifies this evil and wicked Agreement. AND FOREVER BLAMING EACH OTHER FOR OUR ECONOMIC INEQUALITY. Think !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

  262. mubarakchan Sep 23,2019 10:22 AM

    Tun,

    Forever, Singapore seems to be making use of its many proxies to push for the RATIFICATION OF THE CPTPP BY MALAYSIA.

    As we all know by now the CPTPP is a TPPA without the United States market. We also know that the sneaky Lee Kuan Yew concocted a Free Trade Scheme after his Monopolistic Questionable and Unmentionable Cold War Trades (1948-1989) were grabbed by the BRICS strangely with the blessing of Uncle Sam via his hegemonic spiel, “Globalization. Free Trade. Human Rights.”

    Thereafter the lush years of Singapore collapsed by the turn of the 21st Century with Singapore in technical recession by 2002. Her GDP did not breach 3% GDP from 2002 to 2019 after the fizzy 7% GDP of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s derived from a sleepy colonial tropical port which the present day glittering 1st World Singapore could not match.

    And the striking headline in The Edge over the week-end blared out, ” CPTPP FOR TAIWAN AND MALAYSIA.”

    The author is a manager in a think tank which lacks knowledge and ideas.

    As a result, his urging for our beloved Malaysia to ratify this sneaky Lee Kuan Yew creation ex-TPPA without the United States market is only good for just arrived Martians and SINGAPORE.

    The article IGNORES OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST ALTOGETHER and the plight of the Rakyat involved in the SMEs all over the country.

    This fellow is just a MOUTHPIECE OF SINGAPORE USING TAIWAN AS AN EXCUSE TO FORCE THE ISSUE OF RATIFICIATION OF THE SNEAKY LEE KUAN YEW CREATION CPTPP to enslave our beloved Malaysia forever. Look at BREXIT !

    Once the TPPA/CPTPP is RATIFIED, OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IS ENSLAVED FOREVER BY THE 50 VOLUMES OF AGREEMENT SPECIALLY CRAFTED BY LEE KUAN YEW FOR THE LACKADAISICAL MALAYSIANS.

    His one page 1962 Water Agreement was enough to bowl over our beloved Malaysia.

    He even established an International Trade Arbitration Centre in 2005 in Singapore with great expectations to welcome the naïve, innocent and unsuspecting Malaysians who were expected to turn up in droves to the delight of Singapore’s legal profession. This has not happened yet because the sneaky Lee Kuan Yew was let down by his slow-moving abang-adeks in the Ulus. His friends got kicked out before they could say Lee Kuan Yew !

    The author also mentioned that Taiwan is the only country which our beloved Malaysia has no Trade Treaty yet. OK.

    Then, OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WILL HAVE A TRADE TREATY WITH TAIWAN WITHOUT SINGAPORE IN THE TPPA/CPTPP/CREP. It is that simple without Singapore so that Malaysia need not be involved in a sneaky Lee Kuan Yew TPPA/CPTPP trap to ensnare Malaysia and its lucrative middle income market FOR THE SOLE BENEFIT OF SINGAPORE.

    To enlighten the author, the TPPA/CPTPP/CREP is the KILLER FOR MALAYSIA/MALAYS/SMEs as crafted by the sneaky Lee Kuan Yew who bought up the whole of our beloved Malaysia’s governing apparatus of digits from 2004-2018.

    In June, 2009, at the age of 85, the sneaky Lee Kuan Yew who seldom bothered with the Ulus, paid a visit to exhort his digits, cohorts, spies, tycoons, treasonous Civil Servants, MCA leaders in red mandarin silks, Kelantanese, Penangites, a tea for two off Jalan Duta etc to ENSURE THE SUCCESS OF THE TPPA/CPTPP FOR THE SURVIVAL OF SINGAPORE, HIS LEGACY FOR HIS INHERITORS WHO ARE STILL PUSHING VERY HARD BEHIND THE SCENES, like this treasonous article WHICH ONLY CONSIDER MONEY BUT NOT SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST.

    SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST GOVERN TRADE AND NOT TRADE GOVERNS SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST. Common sense without an IDEA.

    IF THE MALAYSIANS OF MALAY ORIGIN LOSE THEIR BIRTHRIGHT AND LAND VIA THE TPPA/CPTPP/CREP, TO WHERE DO THEY GO, MR MANAGER OF THIS IDEAS THINK TANK ? Any idea on this score, may I ask ? Taiwan or Singapore ?

    Our learned Prof Jomo must be choking from the haze and such blatant exhortations FOR THE TPPA/CPTPP/CREP WITHOUT REGARD TO THE SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA !

    AT THE END OF THE DAY, IT IS THE RAKYAT, STUPID !

    Not only that, Malaysia conserved her WEALTH through 4 HONEST AND DISTINGUISHED PRIME MINISTERS, THE TUNKU, TUN ABDUL RAZAK, TUN HUSSEIN ONN AND OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD, 1957-2003, now a manager of a little known think tank TRIES TO FORCE THE ISSUE OF RATIFYING A TREASONOUS SNEAKY LEE KUAN YEW CRAFTED TPPA/CPTPP/CREP MALAYSIA/MALAYS/SMEs KILLER at a time after the country was completely RAPED AND VANDALISED BY THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE AND GLCs/SOEs.

    To remind some of our forgetful compatriots, SINGAPORE HAS ALREADY GONE THROUGH ONE ROUND OF TAKING ADVANTAGE OF WEAK MALAYSIAN BN LEADERSHIP 2003-2018. We lost national assets for nothing in return. The sneaky Lee Kuan Yew TPPA/CPTPP/CREP will seal our fate as Singapore’s slaves forever. THINK.

    This fellow in the tank does not think in a logical manner of looking at a problem in more than ONE DIMENSION like our beloved Tun. He should begin to consider problems in MORE THAN ONE DIMENSION which is the TPPA/CPTP/CREP – a multi-dimension sneaky Lee Kuan Yew crafted creation. Go and check from 1948 – the Rise and Fall of Singapore’s GDP 1948-2019. The facts are in the Singapore Government’s Statistics Report.

    Tun. the desperation of Singapore TO BREAK DOWN THE TARIFF WALL OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO ENSLAVE US ALL KNOWS NO BOUNDS.

    This desperation reveals the dire straits that Singapore has fallen into WITHOUT A BOMBASTIC LEADER AND NO HUMAN AND NATURAL RESOURCES.

    The Singapore Leadership knows very well that without a creditable and stable source of revenue like what they used to garner – the MONOPOLISTIC Questionable and Unmentionable Cold War Trades 1948-1989 blessed by Uncle Sam, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR A TINY PLACE WITH 900,000 CHINESE MALES AGED 21-50 TO DO MUCH IN THIS ULTRA-SPEED TURBULENT WORLD COMPETING WITH GIANTS.

    There is only ONE WAY FOR SINGAPORE WHICH IS TO CONFEDERATE WITH THE UNITED KINGDOM. Have the Singapore Leadership got the guts and vision to do so ? The Malaysian cognoscenti must be sick of the sneaky ways of Lee Kuan Yew’s obsession to down our beloved Malaysia. IT IS SMALL MINDED.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem IF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA DOES NOT RATIFY THE TPPA/CPTPP/CREP WHICH ARE KILLERS OF MALAYSIA/MALAYS/SMEs with the ENSLAVEMENT OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA.

    For those who do not understand why the TPPA/CPTPP/CREP kills our beloved Malaysia/Malays/SMEs, IT IS BECAUSE SINGAPORE IS USING THE TPPA/CPTPP/CREP TO REVERT BACK TO THE COLONIAL TRADE SYSTEM OF PRE-MERDEKA.

    The Colonial System was all Malayans were consumers of British made goods imported from Singapore on a tariff free basis known as the Empire or Imperial Preference.

    So, how can anyone think properly when one’s ideas are lop-sided – first without considering Sovereignty and National Interest and second, ignorant of even a dram of our illustrious history ?

    History is the finest Arbiter of the Truth. With the sneaky Lee Kuan Yew crafted TPPA/CPTPP/CREP, after the Tariff Wall has been broken down through RATIFICATION, THE NON-MALAYS BECOME MIDDLE-MEN AGAIN LIKE FOR THE BRITISH. BUT THIS TIME FOR SINGAPORE WHICH FINANCES THESE CHINESE MIDDLE-MEN. Huge volumes of Singapore or re-labelled goods flood in at low prices to finish off the SMEs first. Then, the prices will rise.

    The beloved Malaysia we have worked so hard and sacrificed for has been enslaved by just a handful of traitors for filthy lucre.

    Tun

    During this quiet Sunday morning a headline which should be concocted by anyone should be.” WHO KILLED THE GOLDEN GOOSE THAT LAID THE GOLDEN EGGS ASKED THE PUSSY CAT ?”

    Yes ! Any one of us the Rakyat must be concerned with the dire state of financial affairs created by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs which was the LOOPHOLE for unapproved monies to flow out into the blue yonder.

    Our Malaysian financial landscape now show the barren and devastated scenario of an atomic bomb attack. Completely empty of its vegetation and human habitation of Malay elite. One cannot believe that these rapacious vandals understood Mao Tze Dong’s ‘Empty City Strategy’ in their brutal haste to take what was not only on the table but the contents of the whole Malaysia house as well.

    These rapacious vandals of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 were exclusive. So much so, due to lack of human logistics of the intellectual kind, they resorted to the use of stupid fat little boys of no merit to carry out the tasks for them whilst they lounged around after 19 holes of golf. Financial scandals and bungles were a dime a dozen as expected from little boys.

    We the Rakyat did not understand all these but the whole World did. And their laughs at our meekness and mildness were loud and clear.

    A complete clean out of the Wealth of one of the rich Nations of the Word was carried out. Wealth which was derived from the hard-work of 4 honest and distinguished Prime Ministers, the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and all the Rakyat during 4 generations of Prime Ministers 1957-2003.

    Any other country would have its mobs rioting in the streets at this wanton rape of a Nation’s Wealth but not so in our beloved Malaysia which seemed not to care about this brutal rape of a rich Nation’s Wealth by its own elected Leaders.

    The result was the rise of our cost of Living, the ringgit depreciated, our life style, property values, salaries, jobs and hopes all were reduced in real values by large measures.

    Yet, our Rakyat do not seem to be affected, understood or cared but blamed THE WHOLE CHARADE ON RACE AND RELIGION – something airy-fairy which no person can point a finger at.

    So, on this score, round and round the arguments on RACE AND RELGION went on as these gathered momentum. Some proud ex-Opposition Leaders are mum on these events because they are confused that it is not RACE AND RELIGION which are the real culprits of the piece but the LACK OF MONEY IN THE FEDERAL TREASURY’S COFFERS !

    The brutal rapacious vandals of the BN Government 2004-2018 raped what money available wholesale without any mercy.

    For starters, NONE OF THESE LEADERS EVER THOUGHT OF SAFE-GUARDINGTHE NATION IN BAD TIMES BY BUILDING UP A CREDIBLE RESERVE DURING GOOD TIMES.

    The price of a barrel of oil spiked up to US$ 110 a couple of times during the barren regime 2004-2018. There is no evidence as to what have happened to these petroleum riches which rightfully belong to the Rakyat. To where have these riches gone ? There were no projects to benefit the Rakyat between 2004-2018 after zooming up the Nation’s debt from RM 350 Billion to over RM 1 Trillion !

    THIS IS THE DEBT OR BORROWED MONEY, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SURPLUS IN RELATION TO OUR TRADES ? Therefore, the unaccounted for money must be more than RM 1 Trillion as confirmed by the UN, World Bank and IMF Reports.

    During the Dark Age of our beloved Malaysia, what the Rakyat saw was the continuous flow of riches towards the apex of the POWER PYRAMID defying gravity.

    In one UN Report, a Malaysian nobody headed the list of 1,000,000 barrels of Saddam Hussein sanctioned oil allotment which was allotted to this fellow. When he was asked, the incumbent PM admitted he did not know what he signed !

    In a country which is our beloved Malaysia, once proud of its Administration and Financial Management from 1957-2003, how this disease of IMMORALITY took whole of the Government System’s digits overnight is indeed a subject worthy of further study in any university ?

    Supposedly worthy and well-ensconced Leaders were elected trustfully by the Rakyat into POWER.

    By deceit ( GLCs/SOEs ), overnight all the Nation’s WEALTH AND MALAY ELITE WERE GONE WITH THE WIND. 2004-2018.

    Yet, even after the discovery of the depth of this unfathomable financial rape by those in POWER, hardly anyone of the Rakyat seems to care for their great LOSS OF WEALTH WHICH I RECKON THE MALAYS LOST FROM 30% – 50% AND THE NON-MALAYS 30% OF THEIR WEALTH. Remarkable Malaysia !

    Are the Rakyat stunned by the daily to-ing and fro-ing of these ex-Leaders to the Courts ? Do they understand what had happened or worse if the New and Incorruptible Government did not oust these ineffective ex-Leaders ? Did the Rakyat notice that not one of these ex-BN Leaders expressed remorse and regrets at this GREAT HARM DONE TO OUR BELOVED MALAYSA AND HER RAKYAT – the total loss of their accumulated WEALTH BUILT-UP OVER 4 GENERATIONS OF HONEST AND DISTINGUISHED PRIME MINISTERS, THE TUNKU, TUN ABDUL RAZAK, TUN HUSEEIN ONN AND OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD.- The good days of these honest Prime Ministers gave us the reserves.

    But as far as all can see these days, the good days will take time to return but can only be hastened IF THE RAKYAT WORK TOGETHER AS ONE IN A SMALL COUNTRY.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Malaysia has only one WAY to go which is upwards.” PER ARDUA AD ASTRA “

  264. mubarakchan Sep 21,2019 6:08 PM

    Tun,

    BON VOYAGE ON YOUR FORTHCOMING VISIT TO THE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY !

    The media seem not to understand that there are different types of Sovereign Funds.

    The cause of this confusion was created by Lee Kuan Yew in the 1990s and at the turn of the 21st Century because as always he wanted to project how smart he and Singapore were.

    1. The fact is there is only one type of Sovereign Fund. The first was created by Canada in 1972 to protect the depletion of its natural resources for future generations. This initiative was also adopted by Norway and Kuwait.

    2. The Singapore Sovereign Fund is a misnomer arising from the eagerness of the non-independent Western media to egg on or flatter Lee Kuan Yew and his ego to invest in Wall Street and the City. I believe the gnomes of Zurich were very much behind this. The exhortations went on until the Crash of October 2008. Thereafter until today, not only have these Western supporters of Lee Kuan Yew disappeared but not a squeak could be heard what used to be a daily event. What goes around comes around ?

    The funds for the Singapore Sovereign Fund which is a misnomer came from the huge profits of the Questionable and Unmentionable Cold War Trades blessed by Uncle Sam 1948-1989 managed by the GIC and the CPF,

    3. The third type of Sovereign Fund is unique to Malaysia. Its origin was straightforward – To invest in special situations for the Bumiputras during 1981-2003.

    But GREED like the serpent reared its ugly head during the Danaharta days 2000-2005 when profitable but mis-managed companies ended up in the hands of administrators with secret agendas whose political masters were weak.

    On the one hand, some of these profitable companies ended up in the ex-administrators hands whilst others were placed in Khazanah to establish the Khazanah Empire ruled by another administrator with a secret agenda.

    From its fudged beginnings Khazanah became the official tool of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs. An ancient saying,’ The best method to make money is not to own the business.’

    As subsequent events revealed that all the public financial scandals of our beloved Malaysia now show ALL THE CULPRITS USED THEIR POSITION IN POWER TO WALLOP MONEY IN THE CLCs as officials from top to bottom in the BN Government. Then, we have the seldom mentioned padded and direct negotiation public contracts

    Thus, there are 3 types of Sovereign Funds, the real and the fakes :-

    1. REAL SOVEREIGN FUND. Canada, Norway, Kuwait.

    2. FAKE SOVEREIGN FUND 1.0. Singapore. The Funds came not from the depletion of natural resources but Government reserves and CPF.

    3. FAKE SOVEREIGN FUND 2.0. Malaysia borrowed money to create its Sovereign Fund.

    By this move, A HUGE LOOPHOLE TO CREATE UNLIMITED AMOUNTS OF UNAPPROVED MONEY GUARANTEED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS NOW ESTABLISHED.

    THIS IS FRAUD AND CHEATING OF THE GOVERNMENT’S AND THE COUNTRY’S RESOURCES WHICH BELONG TO THE RAKYAT. If the corrupt BN Leadership was not IMMORAL and KNOWLEDGEABLE and did not rely on stupid fat little boys to advise them how to handle money crookedly, our beloved Malaysia would be very very rich today. Now our cost of living, property values, currency, life style, jobs, incomes etc have been depreciated by these foolish people in command relying on stupid fat little boys with no merit. Why ?

    1. In October 2003, when our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad retired, Malaysia’s debt was only RM 350 Billion which created the titanic infrastructure to benefit the Rakyat and the 6 million Malay middle income families from zero base on 13 May 1969. The non-Malays benefitted indirectly. The evidence was solid.

    According to Moody.s latest report, Malaysia now has the highest Government NFPE (non-financial public entities) debt in the World if not Asia within a space of less than 10 years. Vide The Star Biz. Page 2. 13 September 2019.

    From the Sublime to the Ridiculous. The huge raping and vandalism of the Public Financial System is for all to see. It’s a fact. Not a rumour or a dream. As I said before this acts were worse than the Rape of the Sabine Women of ancient Rome !

    Further, the UN, the IMF and the World Bank in their Annual Reports stated that RM 1.5 Trillion flowed overseas between 2002-2018. From where did this money come from ?

    IT IS CLEAR TO ALL AND SUNDRY THAT A LOOP HOLE WAS CREATED VIA THE KHAZANAH TYPE GLCS/SOEs (hundreds were established in the name of protecting and making money for the Bumiputras) FOR MONEY TO BE STOLEN OPENLY AND REMITTED OVERSEAS. There is Corruption in all GLCs/SOEs. How ?

    1. OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD COULD CREATED A MULTITUDE OF ASSETS INCLUDING THE 6 MILLION MALAY MIDDLE INCOME FAMILLIES WITH ONLY RM 350 Billion DEBT AS AT OCTOBER 2003.

    2. BETWEEN 2004-2018, THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 BORROWED OVER RM 700 BILLION WHICH WAS 2 TIMES WHAT TUN’S 22 YEAR ADMINISTRATION BORROWED, RM 350 BILLIONS. On the one hand, Tun could produce many projects for the Rakyat plus his creation of the 6 million Malay middle income families single-handedly. On the other, the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs/SOEs, CREATED AND PRODUCED NOTHING FOR 14 YEARS FROM OVER RM 700 BILLION DEBT but only bungled thefts of money handled by nobodies and stupid fat little boys of no merit.

    The GAINERS arising from the Regime of the Dark Age of our Malaysia under the corrupt BN Government 2004-2018

    1. The Leaders of the BN Government 2004-2018 and their adherents which gave rise to the men in black roaming the streets.

    2. Singapore which was forever trying to get assets from bountiful Malaysia through sneaky ways like :-

    i) Pulau Batu Putih.

    ii) KTM valuable land assets and rails. Malaysia ended up with half an office building.

    iii) Encroachment of air-space and water-space.

    iv) The Avenue without valuation

    v) Hard core PAP cadets occupying the UMNO NSTP Chief Editor’s Chair.

    vi) The Forth Floor Boys with the magic wand showing Singapore the WAY.

    vii) HSR – Malaysia pays for 99% of its construction with compensation whilst Singapore could balloon a minor golf course into a multi-billion dollar asset. Stupid.

    viii) Malaysia pays to deliver raw water at 3 sen per 1,000 gallons to Singapore because of the depreciation of the Malaysian ringgit.

    ix) ALL EYES CLOSED TO THE THEFT OF SAND, ROCKS, TIMBER ETC FROM MALAYSIA TO SINGAPORE.

    3. THE FOREIGN BUDDIES OF THE RULING CLIQUE.

    i) The Great Eagle of Indonesia.

    ii) Friends of the stupid fat little boy of no merit.

    iii) The MAYBANK PURCHASE OF KIM ENG SECURITIES SINGAPORE FOR OVER RM 1.2 BILLION. Etc.

    THE LOSERS DURING THE SINGAPOREAN PUPPET CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT 2004-2018 AND ITS EQUALLY CORRUPT ELITE AND GLCs/SOEs WERE THE RAKYAT WHO COULD ONLY STAND AND STARE AT THE SCENARIO IN WHICH OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WAS ONE OF THE RICHEST IN THE WORLD BECAME ONE OF THE POOREST RIGHT BEFORE THEIR EYES – 2004-2018

    Yet the ex-PM cum FM claims the New and Incorruptible Government is wantonly selling the Khazanah assets bought with BORROWED MONEY !

    There is another ancient saying,’ IF MONEY DOES NOT MOVE, MONEY CANNOT FALL OUT OF THE SYSTEM !’

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. In you we all TRUST. Keep smiling. MORALITY IN ALL OUR DEALINGS SHOULD HOLD SWAY NOT IMMORALITY.

    KUDOS TO BANTAH, THE COALITION OF NGOS WHICH HIGHLIGHTED THAT THE RCEP PRESENTS A DANGER TO MALAYSIA TODAY.

    The RCEP is another serpent from Singapore’s many headed serpent TPPA/CPTPP which forever doing its best to breakdown the Tariff Wall of our beloved Malaysia through sneaky means and corrupting our leaders responsible for the wherewithal of Malaysia.

    ON THE ONE HAND, MOODY REPORTED THAT MALAYSIA’S NFPE DEBT IS THE HIGHEST IN THE REGION IF NOT THE WORLD. Malaysia’s NEFPE debt is 30% of the GDP whilst the region average is only 10%. Malaysia is poor and cannot afford to LOWER ITS TARIFF WALL BY SIGNING THE RCEP FOR SINGAPORE.

    ON THE OTHER, OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AS REPORTED IS GOING TO SIGN FOR THE RCEP SOON.

    I thought the New and Incorruptible Government under your Leadership, Tun with DSAI and the Team by your side WILL NOT JUMP FROM THE FRYING PAN OF THE MALAYSIA/MALAYS/SME KILLER TPPA/CPTPP INTO THE FIRE OF THE RCEP ANOTHER SNEAKY CREATION OF SINGAPORE.

    The TPPA/CPTPP and the RCEP are the heads of one multi-headed serpent Singapore which forever wants to breakdown the Tariff Wall of Malaysia to seek nirvana or salvation TO SAVE LEE KUAN YEW’S SINGAPORE, HIS LEGACY AND INHERITORS. This was his problem. Not Malaysia’s.

    LEE KUAN YEW’S SNEAKY WAYS HAVE ALREADY SCREWED MALAYSIA VIA THE 1962 WATER AGREEMENT AND HERE WE GO AGAIN WITH THE RCEP AGREEMENT IN SEPTEMBER 2019. Will we ever learn about Sovereignty and National Interest ?

    AGAIN OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND OUR NATIONAL INTEREST ARE THROWN OVERBOARD BY RESPONSIBLE OFFICIALS WHO SHOULD KNOW BEST. BUT AGAIN SINGAPORE SEEMS TO PLAY A BIG ROLE IN THE MINDS OF THESE RESPONSIBLE OFFICIALS. Are they for the Sovereignty and the National Interest of our beloved Malaysia or not ? Why ?

    According to BANTAH, the RCEP is irrelevant to the needs of Malaysia and her economy. Bantah pointed out that ALL THE COUNTRIES IN THE RCEP HAVE ALREADY SIGNED FTA (Free Trade Agreements) with Malaysia.

    THEREFORE THE ONLY BENEFICIARY AGAIN LIKE THE TPPA/CPTPP IS SINGAPORE BECAUSE OVERNIGHT SINGAPOREAN RE-LABELLED WILL FLOOD MALAYSIA AND KILL ALL THE SMEs AND BUSINESSES DISLODGING UNEMPLOYED WORKERS ONTO TO THE STREETS BLAMING THE INCUMBENT GOVERNMENT. It is as easy as this. No doubt about it.

    ALL THE POINTS ON THE NEGATIVITY OF THE RCEP IN RELATION TO OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA RAISED BY BANTAH, ARE ACCURATE AND TO THE POINT.

    These add up to the self-destruction of our beloved Malaysia this time NOT BY THE CORRUPT BN GOVERNMENT BUT BY THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT AS LED BY OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD WITH DSAI AND THE TEAM BY HIS SIDE.

    Let us all hope THIS SAD SNEAKY STORY OF LEE KUAN YEW WILL NOT ARISE BY MALAYSIA DESTROYING HERSELF BY SIGNING HER OWN DEATH WARRANT THE RCEP !

    Let us hear from our Prof. Jomo on this RCEP which is the same as the sneaky Lee Kuan Yew TPPA/CPTPP – the Malaysia/Malays/SME Killer.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem until treasonous high Government officials sign OUR OWN DEATH WARRANT WITHOUT OUR PERMISSION LIKE THE SNEAKY LEE KUAN YEW TPPA/CPTPP AND NOW THE RCEP. When will we ever learn ?

    The many eye-catching headlines crowded out the following significant headline last week. An important report of the dire financial straits which our beloved Malaysia had fallen into during the regime of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs and SOEs. The headline, thus

    ” MOODY’S: NFPE CONSTRAINTS FISCAL STRENGTH. MALAYSIA’S GOVT-GUARANTEED DEBT ALSO HIGHEST IN THE REGION.”- if not the World 1

    Here is a list of the shameful statistics arising from the utter neglect of the responsibilities and duties by the Corrupt BN Government 2004-2018 WITH NO INDEPENDENT MINISTER OF FINANCE during which time, the price of a barrel of oil spiked high and mighty up to at least US$ 110 per barrel. To where did the money all gone ?

    Quote Moody’s, thus,

    1. ” Malaysia’s debt of non-financial public entities (NFPEs) is estimated to be the highest in the Asia Pacific excluding China.”

    2. ” The regional average is 10% of the gross domestic product (GDP) and Malaysia is currently at a material level of 30% ”

    3. ” Malaysia also has the highest government guaranteed debt in the region at a rate close to 19% of the GDP when the average is only about 4%.”

    4. ” Malaysia is among the three countries including Sri Lanka and Maldives where government guaranteed debt has grown significantly over the five year period from 2013-2018. The other two countries have no natural or human resources like Malaysia.

    5. ” The profitability among listed SOEs in Mslaysia is also the lowest in the region with a return on equity (ROE) of about only 2%. Japan which has weak SOEs came in second lowest at 6%.” Thousands of employees are kept in Potemkin-like establishments to collect salaries and do no work.

    The above-mentioned facts show the disgraceful and shameful state of affairs concerning the GLCs and the SOEs which were only established between 2004 to 2018. FROM THE SUBLIME TO THE RIDICULOUS.

    During this period, the Government total debt zoomed from RN 350 Billion in 2003 to RM 1 Trillion in 2018 – WITH NOTHING FOR THE RAKYAT TO SHOW FOR THIS GIGANTIC DEBT. Also, there were huge spikes in the price of oil per barrel of up to at least US$ 110 per barrel. To where did the money go ?

    The Annual Reports of the UN, IMF and World Bank reported that between 2002 to 2018 over RM 1.5 Trillion were transferred overseas.

    The rapacious and vandal BN Government during this shameful Dark Age was responsible for this huge deficit of our beloved Malaysia’s money which was generated by the hard-work of all her Rakyat. Worst of all, concomitantly, the Rakyat’s well-being, jobs, cost of living, property values, the ringgit, potential for a better Life were not safe-guarded but devalued by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs and SOEs.

    The GLCs and the SOEs were established after 2004 on the pretext of what was good for Singapore, was good for Malaysia. The present sad Corruption involving the BN Government from top to bottom is indeed a fair judge of such a stupid assessment by a Government.

    Not only that, stupid fat little boys were permitted to handle billions of ringgits belonging to borrowed funds by those responsible for our beloved Malaysia’s wherewithal. Today, the New and Incorruptible Government is searching high and low for the missing billions in US Dollars which rightfully belong to the Rakyat. Was it mad or was it crazy or both ?

    UNTIL ALL THE NON-ESSENTIAL GLCs AND THE SOEs ARE ABOLISHED WITHOUT ANY TEARS OR EMOTIONS, ONLY THEN WILL OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA RISE AND FLY AGAIN TO THE LOFTY HEIGHTS OF VISIONARY SWITZERLAND, DEMOCRATIC INDIA AND GOOD GOVERNANCE JAPAN.

    Otherwise these GLCs and SOEs serpents will definitely appear again to finish off our beloved Malaysia forever. ONCE BITTEN TWICE SHY AS IT IS SAID.

    Only the dictatorial Lee Kuan Yew could control his own creation the GLCs in tiny Singapore.

    From 2004-2018, hundreds of GLCs and SOEs were established at the Federal and State levels of the Federation. All purported to make money for the Rakyat in business.

    IN RECENT TIMES, THE MALAYS CLAIM TO BE LEFT BEHIND IN BUSINESS. But over RM 1.5 Trillion has already been spent by the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 for the sake of supporting the GLCs and the SOEs which all employed Malays. AND THIS HAD BROUGHT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO HER KNEES WITH THE PRESENT NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT PICKING UP THE PIECES OF A SHATTERED WEALTH BUILT UP FROM 1957 TO 2003 through at least 4 distinguished Prime Ministers.

    From the facts on the distribution of Wealth during the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, the distribution of Wealth went the following ways (i) the corrupt BN Leadership and its adherents (ii) Friends of the Leadership from Indonesia, etc. (iii) Singapore. NOTHING FOR THE RAKYAT OF MALAYSIA.

    Until the goodies flow once again from the apex of the POWER PYRAMID down the slippery slopes to the outstretched hands of the proletariat, then and only then, the hot quarrels and the Suits of flying paper arrows will diminish.

    The very first step is to get rid of those poisonous GLCs and SOEs which ARE ALIEN TO OUR MALAYSIAN SOCIETY AND CREATE GIGANTIC CORRUPTION AND SCANDALS ALWAYS. Even Russia and China found out to their cost. 100 Chinese from the GLCs are on the run from China.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem until the serpents of the GLCs and the SOEs raise their ugly heads again and finish off our beloved Malaysia forever. ONCE BITTEN TWICE SHY AS THE SAYING GOES !

    There seems to no end in sight for the terrible haze. What’s more distressing is the long-term effect forest destruction and global warming has on our own agricultural sector, not just in other parts of the world. What should appear to be dry season is now wet season, and wet season becomes dry season. Sometimes the entire year ends up either as completely wet or dry. This has put a tremendous strain on traditional farming such as paddy planting. The place in Sabah where I call my home, is no longer suitable for rice agriculture, as the farmers have long given up on predicting the weather.

    I do strongly believe that sooner than later the United Nations must put a stop to this madness. Governments can start domestically to penalize industries that actively contribute to global warming, and encourage them through incentives to divert their resources into greener technology.

    Climate change is already a wrecking havoc in most countries. Collectively, it can lead to global economic stagnation. If agriculture becomes a victim, this can lead to massive shortage of food supply and hyperinflation, and at the same time mass rural unemployment. In this condition, there is very little any government can do to reverse it. So, it is better to act now, before it becomes too late.

    Addendum to my previous comment on the TPPA/CPTPP -the Malayaia/Malays/SME Killer. Here are a few noteworthy points, thus

    1. 1990-2000. Uncle Sam’s hegemonic spiel, “Globalization. Free Trade. Human Rights.’ actually benefitted the BRICS which also grabbed Singapore’s very profitable Questionable and Unmentionable Trades of the Cold War 1948-1989. In this, the BRICS were blessed by Uncle Sam to do so with open arms until President Trump reversed the trend.

    2. 2002-2006. WHEN RECESSION HIT SINGAPORE FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME WITHOUT THE QUESTIONABLE AND UNMENTIONALBE TRADES OF THE COLD WAR 1948-1989 BLESSED BY UNCLE SAM, LEE KUAN YEW’S LAUNCH OF HIS 4 INITIATIVES TO SAVE SINGAPORE, HIS LEGACY AND INHERITORS WERE NOT ONLY ON COURSE BUT THERE WAS EVERY CHANCE OF SUCCESS WITH ITS KEY COMPONENT, THE TPPA WITHOUT OUR BELOVED TUN’S PRESENCE.

    What Lee Kuan Yew saw in Malaysia were just a couple of corrupt, weak-minded and manipulable digits in POWER. From October 2003, our beloved Malaysia was his for the taking.

    Yes ! he did take a few rocks, KTM lands and rails, etc But at the end of the day 2019, MALAYSIA IS ONE OF THE 4 MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND AND MALAYSIA. Where are you, Singapore ?

    LEE KUAN YEW DID NOT BELIEVE IN MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES.

    3. 2019. ALL LEE KUAN YEW’S 4 INITIATIVES TEMASEK, FT IMPORTS, 2 CASINOS AND THE TPPA/CPTPP MALAYSIA/MALAYS/SME KILLER FAILED. This is confirmed by the difficulty of breaching 3% of the GDP since 2002 !

    And all the glitter of a First World country did not push past 3% of the GDP from 2002-2019. But Singapore with a slow colonial port and nothing else could attain a fizzy 7% GDP from the 1960s until 1997 !

    So, 2%-3% was baksheesh money from Uncle Sam during the Cold War 1948-1989 ! Lucky Singapore and Lee Kuan Yew. The secret of Singapore’s First World success which made her hit above her weight as boasted by Lee Kuan Yew.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    Congratulations to all on this Malaysia Day `16 September 2019 – 56 years old. A natural formation of a group of countries except for one. And before us there are huge tasks facing us to deliver to the Rakyat as always. Challenges which can only be achieved with hard-work, integrity and compassion. These the New and Incorruptible BN Government as led by our indomitable Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and his Team by his side will take up as the challenge.

    However, our beloved Malaysia has always been confronted by sneaky attempts from only one source which is Singapore – forever seeking an advantage in socio-economics via political proxies.

    The example of such underhand dealings are best illustrated by the travails of the aborted Lee Kuan Yew inspired and created TPPA/CPTPP the Malaysia/Malays/SME Killer presented in 50 volumes. We may recall the other sneaky Agreement the 1962 Water Agreement was only one page long.

    Even today there are proponents in Malaysia that the TPPA/CPTPP is good for Malaysia without the United States. Then it was still good for Malaysia with the United States.

    With the United States market before President Trump tore up the Agreement in January 2017, only the soft goods like rubber gloves gained. The rest was subjected to good governance and a 20 year wait for biotech goods.

    BUT FOR SINGAPORE, OVERNIGHT SINGAPOREAN RE-LABELLED GOODS FLOW INTO MALAYSIA TARIFF FREE.

    In January 2017, the Singapore Business Times boasted that with Malaysia signing the TPPA, Singapore saves a minimum of S$ 1 Billion a year or Malaysia loses RM 3 Billion a year from the tax free tariffs.

    OVER THE WEEK-END, THE FOLLOWING HEADLINE APPEARED IN THE EDGE, thus

    ” CPTPP FOR TAIWAN AND MALAYSIA “.

    This fellow who wrote the article is not only presenting his case without much study in depth but also completely out of sync with Malaysian current events. He is utterly confused.

    He claims to be Lau Zheng Zhou, a manager at IDEAS. HIS ARGUMENT IS THAT MALAYSIA SHOULD RATIFY THE MALAYSIA/MALAYS/SME KILLER CPTPP WITHOUT THE UNITED STATES FOR TAIWAN’S SAKE.

    It seems there is an obvious paucity of ideas here. One country. One product. Sounds very Singaporean to me concerning a Singaporean proxy.

    THIS FELLOW IS SUGGESTING THAT OUR MALAYSIA SHOOTS HERSELF IN THE FOOT like the ex-BN Prime Minister, his Minister, the top Civil Servant whose husband is employed by the Singapore Government in a profession which Russia, China, Iran, Egypt, Myanmar, North Korea etc love to jail., the President of the SMEs who sold out his members etc.

    IF MALAYSIA RATIFIES THE CPTPP TODAY, THE HUGE INFLUX OF SINGAPOREAN TARIFF FREE GOODS WILL COLLAPSE THE WHOLE MALAYSIAN ECONOMY TOMORROW.

    For the edification of all, here is the real story behind the TPPA with the United States which morphed into the CPTPP without the United States market.

    1948-1989. First the Singapore traders, then the Singapore Government indulged in the Questionable and Unmentionable Trades of the Cold War 1948-1989 blessed by Uncle Sam. !in 1948, my Singaporean friend with the Remington franchise made so much that he could buy a 13,000 rubber estate in Johor 4 years later.

    1959-1989. The huge profits from these Cold War Trades amounted to nearly US$ 1 Trillion managed by the GIC. This pushed Singapore from the Third World to the First without any effort. Between 1962-1984, Uncle Sam made sure the huge money was spent wisely by despatching via the UN Dr Albert Winsemius, as Singapore Government Adviser, to advise and set-up the glittering infrastructures etc which we see in Singapore today. We may say that Singapore could be the 53rd State of the Union anytime.

    1989. The Communist World suddenly imploded. Uncle Sam came out with his hegemonic spiel, ‘Globalization. Free Trade. Human Rights.’ All eventually back fired at Uncle Sam but only benefitted the BRICS with Singapore the only casualty.

    1992. By this time Lee Kuan Yew realised that his halcyon days of the Cold War were over for good. He despatched Goh Chok Tong to recruit FTs from India according to his tomes from Kino or Borders to boost up the GDP. Goh Chok Tong claimed that this was his idea !

    2000. (i) The Singaporean industries for the Questionable and Unmentionable Cold War Trades blessed by Uncle Sam began to close down due to no business.

    (ii) Temasek’s skeleton was fleshed out to perform in the World equity markets. With the usual Singapore BS or Bluffology, it was soon known as a Sovereign Fund. A true Sovereign Fund was began by Canada in 1972 to protect the depletion of its natural resources. This was followed by Norway and Kuwait. Singapore’s Sovereign funds came from the CPF.

    (iii) in 2001, there was a Dot.com crash, Singapore had a technical recession with unemployment.

    (iv) With the facts before him, Lee Kuan Yew created 4 Initiatives to save Singapore, his Legacy and his Inheritors. These were (i) Temasek (ii) FTs imports. (iii) 2 Casinos (iv) TPPA – the Malaysia/Malays/SME Killer.WHICH WAS TIMELY WITH THE RETIREMENT OF TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD IN OCTOBER 2003. Lee Kuan Yew thought at last he CONTROLS MALAYSIA VIA PROXIES.

    (v) By 2006, all four initiatives were up an running. Except for Brunei, Chile, and New Zealand, no other country was interested even the United States. At that time, Lee Kuan Yew’s sneaky creation was known as a Free Trade Scheme with the hidden intent to OPEN UP MALAYSIA’S TARIFF WALL AND ENSLAVE HER FOREVER. WITH OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD NOT IN SIGHT, LEE KUAN YEW THOUGHT THAT THE SKY IS THE LIMIT FOR HIM IN MALAYSIA. Hence, the boastful refrain, “Low handing fruits in Malaysia to pick”.

    (vi) After the Crash of October 2008, Obama took up Lee Kuan Yew’s sneaky creation and called it his own TPPA which now includes the United States market.

    (vii) To nail down his success, in June 2009 at the age of 85, Lee Kuan Yew visited the hot and humid Ulus on the pretext of saying good-bye. The fact was he came in toe exhort his digits, spies, camp-follers, MCA Leaders in red mandarin silks, Kelantan hajis, civil servants, tycoons etc to SUPPORT HIS OBAMA’S TPPA. LEE KUAN YEW WAS VERY CERTAIN OF HIS TPPA SUCCESS WITH MALAYSIA. Hence, his odyssey of a Life-time.

    He nearly succeeded when the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs, SIGNED BUT DID NOT RATIFY THE MODIFIED TPPA NOW KNOWN AS CPTPP. Stupid. The BN Government was ousted before ratification of the TPPA on 9 May 2018 !

    (viii) MAN PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES. Our beloved Malaysia got away by the skin of her teeth because the CPTPP would have brought chaos to the Malaysian economy with factories closing down, workers lose their jobs and the incumbent Government gets the blame ARISING FROM THE HUGE FLOOD OF RE-LABELLED SINGAPOEAN TARIFF FREE GOODS INTO THE FEDERATION.

    (ix) THROUGH THE YEARS ONLY PROFESSOR JOMO OBJECTED IN WRITINGS. But UN Experts based in New Delhi had already presented professional facts that THE TPPA/CPTPP DOES NOT BENEFIT MALAYSIA BUT ONLY SINGAPORE.

    (x) After President Trump tore up the TPPA, Singapore made strenuous efforts through its contacts to revive the TPPA now known as CPTPP WITHOUT THE UNITED STATES MARKET WITH THE SUPPORT OF JAPAN.

    (xi) The following treasonous hectoring by high officials appeared. thus

    a. NSTP 25 May 2017. The ennobled Civil Servant responsible for the 19 secret TPPA negotiations said via a headline,’ Malaysia must not quit the TPPA.’ in red.

    b. A Deputy Minister tested the political environment twice for the CPTPP within the last 12 months.

    c. The subject of my current comment on the TPPA/CPTPP Malaysia/Malays/SME Killer popped up in the Edge with the absurd proposal of pleasing TAIWAN AT THE EXPENSE OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA.

    FOR EVER THERE ARE TREASONOUS PROPONENTS OF THE TPPA/CPTPP WHO ARE WILLING TO SELL OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST DOWN RIVER. It is a shame that this happened so very often .

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem until there are people who are too willing to sell our beloved Malaysia’s Sovereignty and National Interest down river.

    Within the last 48 hours an earth shattering event happened at Abqaiq, Saudi Arabia.

    It was the attack on oil installations by 10 drones which succeeded in creating damage and fires for the very first time in the Kingdom. Most of the oil installations are exposed and vulnerable. Not only that the proposed ARAMCO IPO will be adversely affected in terms of timing and value. It is alleged the Saudi oil production has dropped by at least 30 per cent or closed down in some parts.

    When the World markets open on Monday, it is expected that the price of oil per barrel will escalate. To what extent no one really knows as it is just a subject for speculation.

    The danger lies in further escalation of these attacks and the retaliation which follows on the alleged countries involved.

    It was a good move that our Government pulled out our military out of that region only a few months ago. It was good Policy not to get our beloved Malaysia involved in other countries quarrels.

    Only the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs can explain why our troops were sent there and be exposed to great danger in a strange land.

    With these 10 drones attacks on the oil installations of Saudi Arabia, no one can really fathom when this episode will end. How it is going to affect the price of oil ? Or will there be a wider conflict in the Region ?

    The blessing we have in this tragedy is that we have a New and Incorruptible Government led by our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and DSAI and the Team in place to face any crises to come. We have every confidence that our beloved Malaysia will surmount any obstacle which we may face.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem

    I really pity both Palestinians and Israelis, who are both pawns of never-ending conflicts between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and between Arab Muslims and the Western world.

    On the one hand, you have Sunni-majority countries forever fighting proxy wars against Shia-majority countries, in places that the Saudis and Iranians would never condone if they were directly hit themselves. Now, the Saudis are really paying the price for the decades of clandestine support they gave to the Iraqis, Syrians and now the Yemenis.

    On the other hand, the Palestinians, who were all ready to accept a two-state solution since 1948, and yet still to see their dream becoming a reality, if ever at all. Blame the Israelis of course, who themselves have lost all trust in so-called Arab goodwill that they would never be attacked, but definitely were (1948, 1956, 1967, 1973). Palestinians now are watching in dismay as more Jewish residents from all over the world are setting up homes right inside their promised future state.

    It is like watching two people negotiating over a pizza while one of them is eating the pizza.

    It is good our TWINPEAKS appeared out of the blue in this distinguished Blog. It is good very good that TWINPEAKS contribute sensible and constructive points for our edification in the National Interest and within the context of our beloved Malaysia’s Sovereignty.

    In TWINPEAKS latest wisdom, it is well and good we have a vision or ideals for our beloved Malaysia. As a close observer of our country within the democratic context, we are fortunate to have come this far even we were knocked out for six by the rapacious and vandals of the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and its GLCs.

    I maybe one of the very few who can comment on the fables and foibles of Post Merdeka Malaysia and her denizens from 1954. Throughout I was not at the centre but a couple of arms lengths away. And I did not cheat, evade income tax, grab the assets of others etc. My very few friends know my score. I helped always.

    First, a post colonial country like Malaysia was born of a diversity of politically compartmentalised races bound by a Constitution which was unique in many ways arising from the British bungles of the Malayan Union 1945 and India’s Independence 1947. This was the basis of our wherewithal to the present.

    Second, all Malaysians must not be fooled by the cruel British propaganda that the Chinese were rich and exploited the Malays. Nothing like this happened as all goods were British in the market system. They were rich only limited to the fingers of the hand who were supported by the British or only one who got untold riches of tin by digging a hole in the ground under the hot sun.

    The rest just eked out a living on their own or worked for the British Colonial Distributive System reaching out to the ulus based on credit with its attendant risks or many became part of the Civil Service in teaching, nursing and minor civil servants or clerks in British businesses.. I should know as I moved freely with all races from young.

    Third, as at Merdeka 1957, our beloved Malaya’s general economy was in the hands of the British. The Ministers of Finance from 1957-1974 were good book-keepers who adhered to the British Colonial Currency Board of Malaya, Singapore, North Borneo, Sarawak and Brunei Policy until the Board was disbanded in 1972. I was there.

    Fourth, by adopting the British Colonial Currency Board Policy which restricts the Federal Government to spend only what it earns, the economy because of its illiquidity was slow in velocity. Only the rich (British) became richer. The poor became poorer.

    Fifth, on 13 May 1969, the British owned 70% of the best assets of Malaysia, the Chinese 25% of the third rate and the MALAYS just 2%.

    Sixth, the launch of the NEP in 1971 was the best solution for Malaysia’s dilemma by the great Statesman Tun Abdul Razak and his Team.

    So, what am I trying to say ?

    FROM THE ABOVE HISTORICAL FACTS THE MALAYSIANS WERE POOR ESPECIALLY THE MALAYS WHO HAD NO MEANS OF IMPROVING ON THEIR LIVELIHOOD IN THE ULUS. It was the NEP which encouraged the Malays to move to the towns. Thereafter, KFC flourished.

    I have always commented that our beloved Malaysia requires lots of Malay elite (REAL not FAKES) to clap hands with the non-Malay elite according to the Constitution.

    Historically, the First Generation of Malay elite – the BMF Generation immolated themselves via the BMF (1957-1981) etc. The Second Generation of Malay elite succumbed through self-immolation – the Renong Generation 1981-2003). The Third Generation (2004-2018) – the 1MDB Generation, took a direct hit of Corruption with the as expected self-immolation resulting in only our beloved Tun, his trusted friend (80) and my friend (40) from Christ’s College, Cambridge remain. And in our beloved Tun’s Cabinet I could discern only two neophytes of Malay elite trying to survive and make their mark.

    The above-mentioned facts of the LACK OF WEALTH IN MALAYSIA 1957-1981 owned by the Malay elite and THE SUBSEQUENT GREAT WEALTH WHICH BROUGHT DOWN THE MALAY ELITE AND THE FLOWER OF MALAY POLITICS UMNO could only be contributed to the LACK OF THE GOODIES FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WHICH OUR WISE AND SENSIBLE TWINPEAKS HAS MENTIONED IN HIS ENLIGHTENED COMMENT.

    In Singapore, it is often said, ‘ NO MONEY. NO HONEY.’

    IN MALAYSIA IT IS NO MONEY NO MALAY ELITE. We need these two virtues badly for our beloved Malaysia and the non-Malay elite to move forward and upwards together. THIS IS THE NATURE OF OUR COMPARTMENTALISED POLITICS TODAY. Hence, I have always been a CONSTITUTIONALIST AND NOT A COMMUNALIST.

    Our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is fully aware of the pitfalls concerning Malaysian Politics and the Rakyat. But history binds all the participants with many unsolved equations. Hence, the creation of more Wealth for all by the New and Incorruptible Government as led by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with DSAI and the Team by his side is the FIRST IMPERATIVE PRIORITY CONCOMITANT WITH THE CREATION OF NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE MALAY ELITE NATURALLY FOLLOWS. This latter endeavour takes time arising from the obligatory POWER AND MONEY LITMUS TEST.

    If my concept of the acquisition of Sime Darby in 1972 which was supported by the Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak and his confidante, YBM Tengku Razaliegh Hamzah, had served it real purpose and NOT TURNED INTO A FINE BRITISH TYPE TRADING HOUSE WITHOUT THE EMPIRE PREFERENCE LIKE NOW WHICH IS STILL SELLING MORE CARS FOR OTHERS IN THE SOUTHERN ANTIPODES, and coupled with a TEAM OF REAL MALAY AND NON-MALAY ELITES, the sky would have been the limit for our beloved Malaysia. Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo would have been owned by our beloved Malaysia long ago. And Proton flourished from it very beginning from our beloved Tun’s visionary Concept.

    The closest aides of 1981-2003 and the Singaporean Puppet Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government 2004-2018 and its equally corrupt elite and GLCs DID THE MOST DAMAGE TO THE WEALTH OF OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD ADMINISTRATION AND HIS LEGACY 1981-2003 and 2004-2018.

    THIS IS BECAUSE THE STORY OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA IS ONE STORY – THE STORY OF MALAYSIA’S CONSTITUTION 1957.

    Until all Rakyat recognise our beloved Malaysia’s wherewithal to survive and exist as an important small country of the World within the context of SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST, then we can quickly rise to the highest levels of human endeavour – PER ARDUA AD ASTRA. And rub shoulders with the likes of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India, Good Governance Japan.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem with the Constitution.

    Congratulations on the new government initiative, Shared Prosperity Vision. It does seem that the country as I see it is moving towards egalitarianism. But let’s hope that this does not evolve into socialism. This was how Great Britain eventually became what it is today, a welfare state. I am not a Tory or die-hard capitalist, but I am sure government leaders will bear this in mind. It is a dangerous, slippery path if you are not careful.

    On the other hand, I would like to suggest what is the most urgent thing that the Education Ministry can initiate. The Ministry can introduce a subject which I strongly believe is lacking, not only in this country, but also in countries like Japan and South Korea. And it is the primary reason why Asians are timid and docile, insecure and sensitive toward criticism. I have been accused many times as shooting from my hip.. and guess what. This accusation comes from Asians, not Europeans.

    If the Asian race wants to become a globally competitive race, they have to start developing individualism and a thick skin. They have to accept criticism no matter how unjustified, and criticize any way they like about others too. Whether they or others will take the criticisms, it does not matter. The important thing is, the ability to speak freely on any topic.. race, religion, sex, the King and royalty, anything and everything.

    Then, and only then, will you see a country starting to develop its own ideas. That is the Renaissance that Asia badly needs, but is still a long way off. The developed western countries started this process more than five centuries ago. Malaysia can start the process for Asia.

    Addendum to my previous comment on the ‘ Haze in Malaysia ‘.

    One interesting and seldom mentioned aspect of the production and export of palm oil from Indonesia is that it is difficult to impose the export tax.

    The reason is that Indonesia is a huge country which has poor logistics in transportation and all these plantations are located in difficult to access places. However, many have riverine access which are off limits to the public.

    This scenario gives the opportunity to the owners, or managers or thieves to export the palm oil out of Indonesia WITHOUT EXPORT TAX.

    If the owners of a public listed company or their managers are dishonest and line their pockets only, the minority shareholders suffer. Without the EXPORT TAX, the cost of the palm oil is low, very low. This impinges on the price of the taxed palm oil in both countries.

    Or just theft of the palm oil by the Management like some in Malaysia could take place in broad daylight in these lonely and inaccessible p
