TOTAL VISITORS FROM 2008:

GRAFT 64

1. Mr Zaim Ibrahim is of the view that my anti-graft campaign will not work now (The Malaysian Insight, Oct 1, 2020).

2. I should instead be selling “the deal” my new party is offering to the people?

3. Perhaps it is true that the Malays in particular are not concerned about graft. A campaign against graft will not bring support from them.

4. Even if this is true it is still important for graft to be condemned by the country as a whole. We are not dealing with the common garden bribe for an officer to expedite approval of an application or to approve a bad proposal. We are talking about buying Governments which rule our country.

5. We can have elections and determine the majority which will set up the Government. That is the democratic way to choose a Government.

6. But now we are seeing elected Governments being brought down through bribing some of its members to cease to support it. Once the elected Government loses its majority, it will cease to be the Government.

7. The members who have been bought can then join the people who bribed them to form the new Government. This Government would be under the control of the corrupt people who bribed them. This means that the people rejected by the electorate will form the Government.

8. This is what happened to the present Central Government and what very nearly happened to the Sabah Government.

9. What is the good of elections if the Government of the electorates’ choice can be overthrown through bribes and the party the electorate rejected would become the Government.

10. The election would be meaningless. The country would be ruled by corrupt leaders.

11. If the people of this country do not mind having corrupt people as their Government then they should not support anti-corruption campaigners. Effectively they would be promoting corruption in the Government of the country.

12. My party may not get support because it insists on appealing to the good sense of the people to reject corruption.

13. But we will still fight corruption even if we are rejected.

    Tun,

    Horror of horrors !

    What I discovered in my Water Bill from Air Selangor shocked me to the core !

    Something rotten which I did not expect from such an iconic national institution though I already had some misgivings arising from the reports concerning other iconic institutions.

    The horror is my normal water charges which were never more than RM 20 per month shot up to RM 224.85 sen. I rushed to the Air Selangor HQ at Bangsar. There was a queue of at least 50 ahead of me with the same complaint. The policeman told me that it was like this for many weeks. Previous to this, there were normally 3-4 customers being served by at least 3 clerks. But these days, the clerical staff of 3 were overwhelmed.

    Those readers who read my comment here should check their WATER BILLS TO ENSURE THAT THEY HAVE NOT BEEN DIDDLED BY THE AIR SELANGOR AS WELL.

    The facts. My Air Selangor Water Bill

    1. June 2020. RM 15.52 : 2. July 2020. RM 17.58 : 3. August 2020. RM 41.09 – for the very first time a new charge of RM 2.00 per m3 was included without due notice since 1960 ! 4. September 2020. RM 70.85 : October 2020. RM 94.85 : November 2020. RM 224.85 ! which is nearly as much as my TNB Bill !

    MY AIR SELANGOR WATER BILL NEVER EXCEEDED RM 20.00 SINCE 1960.

    But the facts from the latest Bill show that CORRUPTION, MISMANAGEMENT AND ABUSE HAVE FINALLY COLLAPSED THE ICONIC AIR SELANGOR.

    Also, it is impossible for Air Selangor not to be aware of the illegal factories along its water catchment areas. Obviously, so many illegal factories were permitted to do so that the over-load of toxics had to spill out sometime at great financial cost to the most important industrial zone in our beloved Malaysia. This is corruption plus plus.

    The Cabinet of 71 Ministers seem to be inert on frontline matters like amateurs, fakes, liars, copy-cats, idiots, morons, clowns, playboys, racists, plagiarists or charlatans. No body bothers. No one cares.

    We the Rakyat live in a beloved country which does not deserve to be like an African or South American country ! No body bothers. No one cares !

    Hence, the call by YB Tan Sri Annuar Musa the Secretary General of BN is timely and vital for our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat to revive the SPIRIT OF THE UNITED MALAYS 2020 with the right and proper Leadership through a Grand Coalition of Malay-based Political Parties.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Even the monopolistic and staid Air Selangor is alleged to be in Corruption, Mismanagement and Abuse of its powers ! When is this nonsense going to end ? To where did the Air Selangor money go ?

    WHAT IS JASA AND WHY RM85.5 MILLIONS WERE ALLOCATED?

    Tun,

    An Open Letter to Senior Minister cum International Trade & Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mohd. Azmin Ali on the Genesis of the TPPA.

    History is the finest arbiter of the Truth.

    On our Malaysia’s dealings with Singapore, it pays to know the facts on the deals forced on Malaysia since the 1962 Water Agreement which was entirely one-sided without due consideration for our Sovereignty and National Interest.

    Because of this oversight, our beloved Malaysia now has to pay for the delivery of raw water to Singapore due to the depreciation of the ringgit and the non-negotiable nature of this one-sided Agreement which was for 50 years or longer. That was the beginning of many diddles by Singapore to come.

    Why the TPPA ?

    When Singapore separated from Malaysia in 1965, from circumstantial evidence which is available now, it is alleged that Lee Kuan Yew established a ‘amour a trois’ with the US and the UK in 1962 before joining Malaysia behind the Tunku’s back. This triumvirate made sense with an iron cast guarantee from President Kennedy for Lee Kuan Yew in a tiny island with no resources, not even water.

    Then, Singapore loomed in strategic geo-political importance at the height of the Cold War 1948-1989 to the West after it was shocked by the Sputnik in 1957 and the Cuban Nuclear Confrontation between the US and the Soviets. Vide. i) “C.C. Too – Psy-War Warrior”. ii) Tunku’s Auto-biography. iii) http://www.onlinecitizen.com “The Albatross Files” 1965.

    Fast trek to 1989, with the fall of Communism and the end of the Cold War (1948-1989), the BRICS grabbed Singapore’s Cold War Trades (1948-1989) blessed by Uncle Sam after his hegemonic spiel, “Globalisation. Free Trade. Human Rights.” which later back-fired on him. Since the BRICS were the principals, they got rid of the middle-man Singapore.

    With the end of the easy Cold War (1948-1989) trades and her lush profits snatched away, Lee Kuan Yew was in a fix. The years of wealth 1948-1989 pushed Singapore into the First World by the 1990s.

    By 1992, Goh Chok Tong was despatched to India to recruit FTs.

    By the late 1990s, Temasek was prepped up.

    In 2002, Singapore had a technical recession.

    By 2006, Singapore had the Temasek, FTs, 2 casinos and the Lee Kuan Yew inspired Free Trade Scheme – the Malaysia/Malays/Malaysians/SMEs Killer up and running.

    When the Free Trade Scheme was launched in 2006 only Brunei, Chile, New Zealand and Singapore were interested.

    The Republican controlled US ignored it until after the Crash of October 2008. President Obama grabbed the Free Trade Scheme and called it his own TPPA (with the US market)- the Malaysia/Malays/Malaysians/SMEs Killer because the SOLE BENEFICIARY IS SINGAPORE (BECAUSE ALL THE OTHER COUNTRIES ARE THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY AND WILL TAKE 2-3 YEARS TO GET THEIR GOODS TO OUR SHORES). OVERNIGHT AFTER THE TPPA IS RATIFIED, LABELLED OR RE-LABELLED SINGAPORE GOODS WILL FLOOD INTO THE TARIFF FREE MALAYSIAN MARKET KILLING THE SMEs, THE EMPLOYERS AND EMPLOYEES.

    It was easy for Singapore and Obama as it had established a buddy relationship with the US Democrats since 1962 !

    By 2008, Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore had all her digits in top positions in the Malaysian Government and also outside it, IN PLACE.

    1. Your predecessor once had a gala time at the INSEAS, Singapore in the late 1990s.

    2. His right-hand woman, Tan Sri Rebecca Fatimah Sta Maria of the “Malaysia must not QUIT” fame. Vide 25 July 2017 NSTP whose spouse was the Chief KL correspondent of the SBT which countries like Russia, China, Egypt, Iran and Myanmar loved to keep a baleful eye on.

    She DID NOT DECLARE HER CONFLICT OF SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST in all the secret negotiations of which 19 were ultra-secret until exposure because the MAIN BENEFICIARY FROM THE TPPA IS SINGAPORE – the only one vis-a-vis Malaysia !

    3. IT IS NOW ALLEGED THE IHH BERHAD RM 100 MILLION RINGGIT PER YEAR SALARY MAN WHICH WAS PARACHUTED AS MINISTER INTO THE SQUEAKY CLEAN SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT CABINET RECENTLY WAS A BLUE-EYE BOY OF BOTH THE CHAIRMAN AND CEO OF KHAZANAH THE OWNER OF IHH BERHAD AS WELL AS THE BLUE EYE BOY OF THE SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT.

    Without the famed Singapore meritocracy, he was REWARDED FOR HIS DERRING-DO VIS-A-VIS HIS VERY CLOSE DEALINGS WITH HIS TWO FORMER TOP MALAYSIAN BOSSES IN THE KHAZANAH ! He must have been extremely close because he was paid RM 100 Million per year basic salary before commissions from generic drugs ! Vide. i) Malaysiakini. Tricia Yeoh CEO IDEAS. Article on CPTPP. ii) The Edge – June 2018.

    4. Then, your alleged revelation in the Dewan Rakyat that the PH Government approved the CPTPP (WITHOUT the US market) in August 2018 WHICH WAS NOT IN THE PH MANIFESTO WHICH WAS IGNORED BY SOME DECEITFUL ACTION POLITICIANS in the absence of the PM ! Our learned Prof Jomo was alleged to call the CPTPP (without the US market) “A FRAUD.”

    5. FINALLY, IN JUNE 2009, LEE KUAN YEW WAS SO COCK-SURE THAT HE AND THE TPPA HAD WON WITH ALL THE DIGITS AND VERY HOT PRIVATE RETREATS ACCOMPLISHED, HE PAID A 4 DAYS VISIT TO EXHORT HIS SPIES, FELLOW TRAVELLERS, TYCOONS, MCA LEADERS IN RED MANDARIN SILKS ETC IN THE HOT AND HUMID ULUS. On his way to the airport, he had tea with the lady living off Jalan Duta and paid his LAST VISIT IN TRIUMPH TO OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD ! So, confident was Lee Kuan Yew. So, meticulous was his planning for the SURVIVAL OF SINGAPORE AND HIS LEGACY FOR HIS INHERITORS !

    But Man proposes. God disposes !

    President Trump tore up the TPPA on 2 January 2017. Hence, the former MITI chief’s screaming RED headlines demanding the Malaysian Government not to QUIT the TPPA WHICH NOW TURNED OUT TO BE THE CPTPP (without the US market) approved by the PH Government in August 2018 as promoted by some deceitful actions politicians !

    Concomitantly, the Singaporeans (2017-2020) PUSHED HARD TO REVIVE THE TPPA AS THE CPTPP (without the US market). How stupid were some deceitful actions politicians ?

    They promoted the CPTPP (without the US market) exposing themselves as the alleged Trojan Horse ! SOON, THEY WILL BE PROMOTING THE REVIVED TPPA (with the US market) – truly exposing their lack of SINCERITY AND LOYALTY TO THE REVERED CONSTITUTION AS SAFE-GUARDED BY THE YANG DI PERTUAN AGONG AND THE ROYAL SULTANS AND MAKING A MOCKERY OF OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST with their mercenary antics !

    WITH THE US DEMOCRATS BACK IN POWER, SINGAPORE WHICH WAS IN THE DOG HOUSE FOR 4 LONG YEARS WILL BE PUSHING HER US DEMOCRATIC BUDDY AND MOJO, TO RETURN TO THE TPPA AGAIN – the Malaysia/Malays/Malaysians/SMEs KILLER.

    As you were quoted,’ While Malaysia was always open to free trade agreements, what was needed to be given more attention now is a fair and free trade agreement.’ Please do not be caught by “free and fair trade” because the soya been US lobby is the Life and Blood of US Politics. They will always be anti-Palm Oil.

    And what else Malaysia has to offer to the US ? It was last reported in the media that it was bio-medical products in 20 years time, textiles (nothing since the 1990s) and from the foreign multi-nationals to teach us – GOOD CORPORATE GOVERNANCE FOR MALAYSIAN COMPANIES which is like asking small boys to suck eggs !

    MALAYSIA ALREADY HAS 13 UNILATERAL AGREEMENTS WITH OTHER COUNTRIES. DO WE NEED ANOTHER ON TPPA TO BREAKDOWN OUR TARIFF BARRIERS TO PROTECT OUR SMEs JUST FOR THE SAKE OF SINGAPORE’S LEE KUAN YEW INSPIRED TPPA ?

    CHINA, INDIA, SOUTH KOREA, THAILAND AND INDONESIA WERE NOT IN THE TPPA.

    Does Malaysia need to be slaughtered again by our own hands and 32 Millions Malaysians enslaved by just 900,000 Chinese MALES aged 21-50 ? Stupid. A death warrant signed by OUR OWN HANDS ? Stupid.

    Through the years, Malaysia has already lost the following, thus

    1. 1962 Water Agreement which was one sided.

    2. 1970. The three wisemen gave all the MSA soft-ware free to SIA. Tun Dr Ismail was furious and wanted to sack the three wisemen. He had to be restrained.

    3. 1965-2000. The joint Singapore-KL Stock Exchange was manipulated unofficially at least 8 times like a yo-yo with money sucked out to Singapore on every downturn !

    4. 2004-2018.

    (i) The famished Singaporeans rushed in looking for the low-hanging fruits with the 4th Floor Boys showing the Way.

    (ii) The rocks were lost because the Government took Singapore in tow to find out whether the rocks owned by Malaysia before Singapore was born in 1819, really belonged to Malaysia. Of course, we lost.

    Later, a book headed by Singapore’s Chief Legal Eagle, (now Patron of MBRAS which published the documents confirming Malaysia’s ownership of the rocks) denigrated the Malaysians as incompetent and how clever the Singaporeans were.

    (iii) The Singaporean assets of KTM with the steel rails – 25 miles long- ended up as half and office building in downtown Singapore.

    (iv) The HSR runs along 99% on Malaysian soil. We pay 99% of the expenditure and a S$ 23 Million penalty for any delay. But Singapore could convert their 200 acres golf club into a multi-billion dollar mixed commercial complex as the HSR Terminus. Singapore gets the immediate benefits. Malaysia will NEVER get back its investment even in 20 years time ! Railways do not make money anywhere in this World !

    (v) The failed TPPA (with the US market) Malaysia/Malays/Malaysians/SMEs audacious attempt to enslave our beloved Malaysia with a 50 volumes Agreement forever and ever ! The 1962 Water Agreement was only a one page affair registered with the UN !

    (vi) UNCTAD ‘ TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT (TPPA) IMPLICATIONS FOR IT’S DOMESTIC VALUE-ADDED TRADE.’ RASHMI BANGA. Unit of Economic Co-operation and Integration amongst Developing Countries. (ECIDC) UNCTAD. New Delhi.

    WE MALAYSIANS MUST NEVER SIGN OUR OWN DEATH WARRANT LIKE THE TPPA WHICH ONLY SERVES SINGAPORE’S INTEREST, AND KILL OURSELVES AND OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA WHICH WE KNOW AND LOVE TODAY ! But there were legends of deceitful actions parties who were very keen to kill our beloved Malaysia and her 32 Millions Rakyat as revealed by the facts as mentioned above.

    Malaysia Boleh as always. No problem.

  4. mubarakchan Nov 8,2020 3:15 AM

    Tun,

    IT PUZZLED ME WHY AN ORDINARY SINGAPOREAN WHO WAS OVERPAID BY IHH RM100 MILION PER YEAR SALARY (without commissions for generic drugs) WAS PARACHUTED AS A MINISTER INTO THE SQUEAKY CLEAN SINGAPORE CABINET NEXT TO THE PMO ? An event which has never happened in squeaky clean Singapore before 1959-2019.

    I finally detected the answer in Tricia Yeoh’ CEO IDEAS article “Can CPTPP offer new impetus for growth ? Malaysiakini 5 November 2020.

    BY THE WAY, LADIES & GENTLEMEN, MALAYSIA DOES NOT REQUIRE THE CPTPP AT ALL. Stupid !

    Singapore desperately MUST HAVE MALAYSIA’S MARKET WHICH IS NOW PROTECTED BY TARIFF BARRIERS ! As independent countries, Singapore should mind her own business. But the facts proved otherwise.

    Instead of being the King of the Hill with 4,000 tons of GOLD, SINGAPORE TOOK TO DIDDLING OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA ALL THE TIME, from the 1962 Water Agreement to the CPTPP (without the US market) aka Lee Kuan Yew’s TPPA (with the US market) – the Malaysia/Malays/Malaysians/SMEs Killer or our learned Prof Jomo was alleged to call “A FRAUD”.

    The IHH RM 100 Million per year salary (without the commissions for generic drugs) MAN was close to his immediate Boss who was in command of an empire of GLCs created by himself for himself. But the nexus or bond between these two gave rise to the influence of the RM100 Million salary MAN over his Boss which arose from mega-ringgits dealings by IHH all over the shop from Istanbul to Singapore via the Turks with their forever falling Lira and the fractious Singh Brothers of Mumbai, USING MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT MONEY FOR THE BAIL-OUTS, BILLIONS OF RINGGITS like confetti !

    His Boss was not aware of the ultimate motive of this IHH MAN which WAS TO EASE THE PASSAGE OF THE CPTPP (without the US market) aka Lee Kuan Yew’s TPPA (with the US market) – the Malaysia/Malays/Malaysians/SMEs Killer – THROUGH THE HIGHEST RANKS OF THE MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT DURING A MOMENT OF WEAKNESS – 2004-2018. Sovereignty and National Interest was forgotten and replaced by the Yiddish song, “CASH IS KING”. He used his ignorant Boss to do things at his biding concerning both the Lee Kuan Yew inspired TPPA (with the US market) and now known as the CPTPP (without the US market) – the Malaysia/Malays/Malaysians/SMEs Killer.

    i) Demonstrating the SINGAPORE’S sheer desperation to enslave our beloved Malaysia while the going was good in Singapore’s favour WITH SPIES STACKED UP EVERYWHERE LIKE IN THE MITI. Vide. NST. “Malaysia must not Quit” 25 May 2017. Singapore gave her Boss a gala session at the INSEAS in the late 1990s.

    ii) And also Dato Seri Azmin’s revelation in the Dewan Rakyat that the PH Government Cabinet with its deceitful action politicians in August 2018, in the PM’s absence, approved the CPTPP (without the US market) aka Lee Kuan Yew’s TPPA (with the US market) – the Malayisa/Malays/Malaysians/SMEs Killer or as the learned Prof Jomo allegedly said ” It’s a FRAUD !”

    This resulted in the ‘Bodekism’ which the ignorant Tricia Yeoh brought out in her article as proof of the GOODNESS OF BUMIPUTRA’S SPECIAL PREFERENCES.

    I read this as the Malays signing their own Death Warrant by their own hands which also affect the non-Malays.

    This example clearly showed the heavy and desperate hand of Singapore to MAKE SURE OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA ( 32 Million, 17 Million MALAYS ) IS ENSLAVED BY TINY SINGAPORE ( 900,000 Chinese 21-51 only ), FOREVER AND EVER. Easy to get in. Difficult to get out like the Brexit even though the UK has legends of elites. Our beloved Malaysia has only 4 Malay elites who are NOT IN THE GOVERNMENT !

    Quote, ‘ DESPITE HAVING EXTRACTED STRATEGIC CONCESSIONS IN THE FORM OF BUMIPUTRA DEVELOPMENT INCLUDING SPECIAL PREFERENCES FOR BUMIPUTRA CONTRACTORS IN PUBLIC PROCUREMENT AND MAINTENANCE, CONTINUED GLC PRESENCE SUCH AS THE DOMINANCE OF PETRONAS IN THE PETROLEUM MARKET.’ Unquote

    The above-mentioned description of Bumiputra involvement could only COME FROM THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN KHAZANAH, its Chairman and the CEO, the immediate Bosses of the IHH RM 100 Million a year (with no commissions from generic drugs) basic salary MAN. With such an absurd salary when this ordinary fellow was worth only RM 4 Million in Singapore, there must be indeed A SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH KHAZANAH’S CHAIRMAN AND THE CEO WITH THEIR BLUE-BOY WHICH CO-INCIDENTALLY WAS ALSO THE SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT’S BLUE EYE BOY. Hence, without ado, he was parachuted as a Minister into the squeaky clean Singapore Cabinet AS THE ULTIMATE REWARD FOR HIS SACRIFICE. He will be awarded a Bintang soon by the President. In a tiny island which once boasted MERITOCRACY ! Now no longer with this ordinary fellow ?

    WHERE WERE YOU 004 MALAYSIA’S MOST BEAUTIFUL CHIEF SPY WITH A US$ 50 MILLION BAJET ? KLCC ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No Problem. I mentioned previously Bangkok was the hotbed of spies during the Cold War 1948-1989 and Singapore was the place where they lived. For many years now, KL has taken over both their roles ! Acheh !

    Here is another true and factual example. In the mid-1980s, the closest aide who collects Stradivarius violins at US 5 Million a piece and owned a bank to boot after only 10 years of service in Malaysia, BOASTED TO DR GOH KENG SWEE DPM SINGAPORE AT THE ISLAND GOLF CLUB IN FRONT OF MY COUSIN THAT HE HAD THE EARS OF THE GOOD AND THE GREAT IN KL.

    For those who want insights into Lee Kuan Yew and our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir, here are the observations of Tun’s success and Lee Kuan Yew’s failure !

    Lee Kuan Yew being with a brilliant legal mind, loved to cross the ‘Ts’ and dot the ‘I’s”. This instinct failed him completely as a Leader because he could not see the broad-strokes which would have guaranteed Singapore’s Survival forever like acquiring 4,000 tons of GOLD, 1970’s – 2002. He created the bogey of the aggressive Malays and was distracted by his Policy of DIDDLING OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA ALL THE TIME. He succeeded with small things like the rocks, KTM, 1962 Water Agreement etc which do not help Singapore at all as we can see today ! But he failed with his desperate KILLER OF MALAYSIA – the TPPA now known as CPTPP even though it was alleged he had compromised all concerned. His inability to THINK OUT OF THE BOX FAILED HIM AND SINGAPORE TODAY ! Just 4,000 tons of GOLD !

    Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad the doctor with the brilliant mind-set which continued to develop throughout his Life because of his medically trained memory, his penchant to read to gain knowledge in English, his training as a doctor who must PICK UP THE SMALL PIECES TO MAKE THE BIGGER PICTURE which is known as diagnosis ! Hence, he instinctively always went for the BROAD STROKES TO COMPLETE THE BIG PICTURE. That’s the difference between our good doctor, Tun and Lee Kuan Yew with the brilliant legal mind !

    Finally, SINGAPORE PROPOSES. GOD DISPOSES !

  5. mubarakchan Nov 7,2020 2:30 AM

    Tun,

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON TRICIA YEOH’S CEO IDEAS ARTICLE ON CPTPP.

    At some time in the future either the Man from Mars or some redoubtable historians studying the shenanigans of Lee Kuan Yew and his Policies, 1962-2020.,they would certainly come to the conclusion that we Malaysians have no mind-sets – the sort of mind-sets of normal quality, thus,

    From the facts in my previous comment that it was alleged that Lee Kuan Yew and his meticulous legal brain must have planned Singapore’s exit from Malaysia in 1962 after achieving ‘AMOUR A TROIS’ with the US and the UK. His actions from 1964 to 1965 confirmed !

    The going was good during the Cold War 1948-1989 for Singapore.

    Suddenly, the Cold War was over. Uncle Sam sang his hegemonic spiel, “Globalisation. Free Trade. Human Rights.” With that the BRICS, the principals, grabbed back the lush Cold War Trades of middleman Singapore. Overnight, a huge void was created in the GDP. FTs were recruited by the mid-1990s and Temasek prepped up to fill the GDP void. By 2005, Lee Kuan Yew added the 2 casinos and the TPPA – Malaysia/Malays/Malaysians/SMEs Killer !

    DID ANY MALAYSIAN NOTICE THAT IN 1965, LEE KUAN YEW’S SINGAPORE EXITED MALAYSIA WITHOUT MALAYSIA’S MARKET ?

    But by the 21st Century or 40 years later, Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore wanted to control the Malaysian market without Tariff Barriers on his terms using the TPPA and now the CPTPP BY COMPROMISING THE STUPID MALAYSIANS USING THEM NOT ONLY TO SIGN THEIR OWN DEATH WARRANT BY THEIR OWN HANDS BUT ALSO USE THEM AS BATTERING RAMS TO BREAK-DOWN MALAYSIA’S TARIFF WALLS !

    And a chorus of Malaysian academicians, compromised civil servants and deceitful politicians sang loudly for Singapore’s CPTPP to be ratified in full support OF THEIR OWN DEATH WARRANT. How stupid can a person get, the Man from Mars will ask ?

    By the way, the CPTPP was signed by the Malaysian Government in January 2018 and approved by the PH Government in August 2018 in the PM’s absence!

    Now the CPTPP – Malaysia/Malays/Malaysians/SMEs Killer is waiting to be ratified by the Dewan Rakyat – THE LEE KUAN YEW INSPIRED CPTPP IS AN INSTRUMENT WHICH THE STUPID MALAYSIANS ALREADY SIGNED THEIR OWN DEATH WARRANT WITH THEIR OWN HANDS. AND THEY WERE ALSO USED AS BATTERING RAMS TO BREAK-DOWN MALAYSIA’S TARIFF WALLS. How stupid can the Malaysians get ?

    Here are Lee Kuan Yew’s shenanigans who exited Malaysia WITHOUT THE MALAYSIAN MARKET IN 1965. BUT RETURNED IN 2006 WITH HIS TPPA TO ENSLAVE MALAYSIA AND GRAB HER MARKET BY USING THE MALAYSIANS TO SIGN THEIR OWN DEATH WARRANT AND ALSO USING THEM AS BATTERING RAMS TO BREAK DOWN THE TARIFF WALLS OF MALAYSIA – all on his terms ! Stupid !

    History is the Finest Arbiter of the Truth. Malaysians are not aware of the importance of history! History should be taught in schools next to BM, English and Science !

    But Man Proposes, God Disposes !

    Lee Kuan Yew missed buying GOLD at US$300 per ounce since the 1970s up to 4,000 tons. He could not think out of the box like our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. If he did, Singapore today would be mixing shoulders with the G-7 countries and Malaysia would be in his little back pocket ! After the Cold War, 1948-1989, ended, he went conventional and Singapore has now ended up in the hands of the gnomes of Zurich ! Jumping from the frying pan (GDP void) into the fire (conventional investments which are full of risks like any other speculator). A sovereign Nation should never get involved in equities !

    And to add to the ordeal of First World Singapore, the COVID-19 struck in 2020 at a time when Lee Kuan Yew’s 4 initiatives, Temasek, FT’s, 2 casinos and the CPTPP/TPPA failed. Pandemic exposed Singapore’s real self which revenues are entirely dependent on the outside World and her tiny size of 3 Million citizens is ineffective in the giant World of e-biz !

    MAN PROPOSES, GOD DISPOSES !

  6. mubarakchan Nov 7,2020 1:25 AM

    Tun,

    CORRECTION

    My humble apologies to correct and clarify Item ii) Dato Seri Azmin… in my previous comment on Tricia Yeoh’s CEO Ideas Article on CPTPP. thus

    ii) Dato Seri Azmin revealed in the last session of the Dewan Rakyat that the PH Cabinet (DAP) approved the CPTPP in August 2018 in the PM’s absence. The Promises in the PH Manifesto were conveniently forgotten. BUT THE CPTPP WAS NOT IN THE PH MANIFESTO !

    Why the haste to push through Singapore’s CPTPP (without the US market) aka Lee Kuan Yew’s inspired TPPA (with the US market) – Malaysia/Malays/Malaysians/SMEs Killer or as alleged by Prof Jomo, it’s “A FRAUD?

    It was alleged by some pundits that a deceitful action party was at work !

    After achieving Singapore’s secret objective – the approval of Singapore’s CPTPP, the pundits alleged these deceitful politicians sang a different tune which brought about the PH Goverment’s collapse in no uncertain terms.

    Naturally, this crypto- manoeuvre prevented their best friend from becoming the next PM after our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who promised to hand the baton to him ! A promise is a promise ! This is not the first time their best friend missed the boat.

    Here are the three previous occasions their best friend could have been easily the Honourable Prime Minister with hands down. It was just one Easy Step.

    1. In 1997, if the DPM had taken a holiday in the US, he would have returned as the Honourable Prime Minister of Malaysia, One Easy Step.

    2. In 2008, if the 32 Aduns had been sorted out before the 12th GE and not after, the best friend would have been the Honourable Prime Minister of Malaysia. One Easy Step.

    3. In 2013, if the Duo announced a 100-day fast to death like Gandhi, they would have been in Putrajaya since. One Easy Step.

    4. In 2018, if Singapore’s CPTPP was not pushed to be approved by the PH Cabinet in the PM’s absence and instead of the PH Manifesto’s Promises, and thereafter, followed by these deceitful folks singing a different tune, their best friend would have been on track to be the next PM after our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. One Easy Step.

    WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE 4 FAILURES OF THE BEST FRIEND TO BE THE HONOURABLE PRIME MINISTER OF MALAYSIA IN ONE EASY STEP SINCE 1997 ?

    Are the best friends serious in their promises and undertakings ? Think !

  7. mubarakchan Nov 6,2020 4:49 AM

    Tun,

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON THE MALAYSIA’S KILLER CPTPP.

    Here are the professional literature on why the TPPA (with the US market) is bad for Malaysia and not in her National Interest. Therefore, the CPTPP (without the US market) is a NON-STARTER. It’s sheer common sense !

    Tun,

    Here is a headline, full of false assumptions, lashings of ‘bodekism’ and anti-Sovereignty and anti-National Interest in the interest of the sole beneficiary of the CPTPP (without the US market) aka Lee Kuan Yew’s inspired TPPA (with the US market), Singapore, thus

    ” CAN CPTPP OFFER NEW IMPETUS FOR GROWTH. TRICIA YEOH. CEO. IDEAS. ” Malaysiakini

    Here is the Truth behind the zealous proponents of the CPTPP, the Malaysia/Malays/Malaysians/SMEs Killer or as our learned Prof. Jomo alleged to have called the CPTPP, “A Fraud.”

    THE SOLE BENEFICIARY OF THE CPTPP aka Lee Kuan Yew’s inspired TPPA IS SINGAPORE.

    Malaysia is just the economic slave in this creation by Lee Kuan Yew because she already have unilateral trade agreements with all the parties concerned.

    Why sign another agreement which forces Malaysia to OPEN UP HER TRADE BARRIERS FOR DUMPING OF GOODS BY SINGAPORE OVERNIGHT, HER CLOSEST NEIGHBOUR AND KILL MALAYSIA’S SMEs AND HER ECONOMY FOREVER ?

    Not only that BUT WITHOUT ANY IMMEDIATE BENEFIT BUT ONLY ‘PIE IN THE SKY’ PROMISES AND FALSE ASSUMPTIONS FOR THE MALAYSIANS ?

    Malaysia’s economy is now so weak that any dis-equilibrium of her existing trade arrangements will kill Malaysia immediately with the forced closures of her SME’s by the dumping of cheap or re-labelled goods by Singapore WITHOUT THE PROTECTION OF A TARIFF BARRIER – immediately after the CPTPP is signed.

    India, China, Thailand and Indonesia are not in the CPTPP.

    So, our beloved Malaysia is up for slaughter by the wicked, the umpteenth time ! Stupid.

    Lee Kuan Yew made sure that unlike the 1962 Water Agreement, a one page agreement, the CPTPP is a 50 volume affair in which MALAYSIA WIL BE ENSLAVED FOREVER. Since 2005, he was so cocksure, he even set-up an International Trade Arbitration Centre in preparation and with expectations for the innocent and naive Malaysians who got diddled, to turn up ! Stupid.

    The zealous proponents of the CPTPP are Tricia Yeoh, CEO IDEAS, the DAP and the former MITI Chief, Tan Sri Dr Rebecca Fatimah Sta Maria whose husband was alleged to be the Chief SBT journalist in KL who wrote a weekly column in the SBT advising the Malaysians on how to manage their economy. It strangely stopped in January 2011 !

    Russia, China, Iran, Egypt and Myanmar are alleged to lock-up people like him for life ! It was alleged that there was no declaration of conflict of National Interest or Loyalty by the MITI person who led the 19 super secret sessions of the TPPA until exposed in 2016 !

    Where were you 004, the beautiful Chief Spy of Malaysia with the US$ 50 Million ‘bajet’ ? KLCC ?

    Vide. i) New Straits Times 25 May 2017. ” MALAYSIA MUST NOT QUIT. Despite withdrawal there is much to be gained from pact, says ministry’s ex-top official, Tan Sri Dr Rebecca Fatimah Sta Maria.”

    Who is she to tell the Government of Malaysia NOT TO QUIT ? Why the urgency ? This happened after President Trump tore up the TPPA on 2 January 2017 after Lee Kuan Yew put in all his hard work to break-down the tariff walls of Malaysia via the TPPA, to save Singapore and his Legacy for his inheritors. Man proposes. God disposes!

    ii) Datuk Seri Azmin revealed in the Dewan Rakyat that the PH Cabinet (DAP) approved the CPTPP in August 2020 in the PM’s absence.

    History is the finest Arbiter of the Truth.

    Here is the true story behind the compromised academicians, civil servants and deceitful politicians of Malaysia concerning the CPTPP (without the US market) aka the Lee Kuan Yew inspired TPPA – the Malaysia/Malays/Malaysians/SMEs Killer or as Prof Jomo was alleged to have called. ” A FRAUD”.

    The facts began in 1962.

    In 1962, Lee Kuan Yew made a big fuss claiming that the CIA tried to bribe him.

    In 1962, the Tunku sent his emissary Tan Sri Dr C.C. Too, the most senior Chinese Adviser on Counter-Insurgency to the Federal Government to alert Lee Kuan Yew of the rising strength of the Communists. Lee, Too and the Special Branch Chief, Bogaars, were in closed door conference for two days. Tan Sri Too told me many years later that Lee Kuan Yew was uncertain what action to take. But Operation Cold Store took place a few months later.

    In 1962. a UN economics expert Dr Albert Winsemius was appointed Adviser to the Singapore Government. 1962-1984. This was a significant appointment because was the good economist, a CIA agent as well to keep a baleful eye on the riches to come blessed by Uncle Sam during the Cold War 1948-1989 ?

    In 1963, Singapore joined Malaya to form Malaysia.

    In 1964, Lee Kuan Yew and his cohorts began their vociferous campaign on “Malaysia for Malaysians”. He being a Double First in Law from Cambridge must have known Malaysia’s Constitution like his hand and yet he went on and on with this refrain right to 1965. Our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad crossed swords with him. I was there. Lee Kuan Yew picked on any iconic institution to criticise to grid-lock the Federal Government like proposing that Malaysia should continue with the restrictive Currency Board instead of Bank Negara Malaysia which is proper for a developing country.

    By 1965, the Tunku claimed he preferred Separation with Singapore after consulting the British.

    However, in recent years, the ‘onlinecitizen.com’ reported that a secret British dossier to Whitehall, ‘the Albatross Files” claimed that Lee Kuan Yew at the press conference in Singapore on the Separation chided the journalists not to photograph him smiling but only crying.

    From the above facts, did Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore involve in an “amour a trois’ with the US and UK since 1962 whereby Singapore would exit Malaysia and became independent under the influence of Uncle Sam without the Tunku’s knowledge ?

    With a brilliant legalistic mind Lee Kuan Yew who even registered the 1962 Water Agreement with the UN, must have extracted an iron cast guarantee for certain things at a time when the US was at the height of conflict with the Soviets beginning with the Sputnik 1957 which shocked the West and the 1962 Cuba/US/Soviet nuclear confrontation ! Being a person of caution, Lee Kuan Yew would never have left Malaysia without a firm assurance from the US. It’s sheer common sense! A tiny island without natural resources, not even water !

    Fast trek to 1989, the fall of Communism and Uncle Sam came up with his hegemonic spiel, “Globalisation. Free Trade. Human Rights.” Overnight, Singapore lost her lush Cold War Trades as blessed by Uncle Sam to the BRICS. Between 1948 – 1989, most of the time, Keppel Harbour was manned by Indian coolies. Yet Singapore could achieved a fizzy 7% GDP and yet with all the glittering assets as advised by Dr Winsemius 1962-1984, Singapore after 2000 to 2020, her GDP could not breach 3% !

    To remedy the Post-Cold War GDP void, Goh Chok Tong was despatched to India to recruit FTs in the early 1990s. He claimed it was his idea !

    By 2002, Singapore had her first technical recession which forced Lee Kuan Yew to pursue four Initiatives to save Singapore and his Legacy for his inheritors being Temasek, FTs, 2 casinos and the TPPA – the MALAYSIA/MALAYS/MALAYSIANS/SMEs KILLER. All were launched by 2006. ALL FAILED BY 2020.

    After President Trump tore up the TPPA in January 2017, Singapore relentlessly pursued an alternative CPTTP Agreement WITHOUT THE US MARKET.

    THE TPPA (with the US market) WAS THE EXCUSE FOR THE MALAYSIAN PROPONENTS TO DRAG MALAYSIA TO JOIN EVEN THOUGH INDIA, CHINA, INDONESIA AND THAILAND WERE NOT IN IT! And the stupid Malaysians still want to join the CPTPP (without the US market) aka the Lee Kuan Yew inspired TPPA (with the US market)- the Malaysia/Malays/Malaysians/SMEs Killer ! We loved to be diddled by Singapore ALL THE TIME!

    Singapore on its own recently announced that the CPTPP is on, from somewhere in Mexico ! In her extreme eagerness to enslave our beloved Malaysia !

    Here are my answers to Tricia Yeoh CEO IDEAS on her article, ‘CAN CPTPP OFFER NEW IMPETUS FOR GROWTH ?’ Malaysiakini 5 November 2020.

    SHE GAVE ALL THE FALSE ASSUMPTIONS BUT NOT A SINGLE WORD ABOUT THE DUMPING OF TAX-FREE GOODS, LABELLED OR RE-LABELLED FROM SINGAPORE THE MOMENT THE CPTPP IS SIGNED BY MALAYSIA. Where is her National Interest in a place called IDEAS !

    1. Quote, ” It’s ratification MAY improve our relative competitiveness and capture investments from multi-national companies.”

    This is an assumption, not a fact. Those in real business should know she is talking rubbish !

    2. Quote, ” The CPTPP is a progression that the Government ought to CERTAINLY consider as we re-position ourselves for an eventual recovery. ”

    Another false assumption with no facts, without stating that the CPTPP (without the US market) REMOVES Malaysia’s protective tariff barriers overnight for Singapore’s goods. In fact, Malaysia requires all the tariffs available to PROTECT her workers after the Covid-19 !

    3. Quote, ” Delaying the ratification of the Partnership may therefore hinder Malaysia’s progress in transitioning towards the fourth industrial revolution. ”

    This is the most far fetched statement I have ever seen in my Life! There has been NO industrial revolution in Malaysia. I should know.

    In 1975, I was appointed to save a ‘sure to die’ biggest textile corporation, Folex Industries Berhad which owed the MIDF Consortium RM 32 Million. The Consortium did not give out a single sen to bail out this huge factory. I balanced the books by 1977 and made millions and millions of ringgits from 1978-1984. The Company is now known as Sri Hartamas Berhad.

    The Shanghainese famously said that a person who knows how to make money making textiles, will know how to do all kinds of businesses. By 1984, I knew how to make textile machinery, which would have fostered motor-car manufacturing, arms making, steel production, trading and finance – a sogoshosa like those in Japan, Taiwan and South Korea.

    But I found Government Policy was not conducive for me to become an industrialist which requires the huge US market, affordable lands, electricity, finance, etc. So, I took to corporate re-structuring at the top of the capital market. I stress once again to state ‘a fourth industrial revolution’ in Malaysia is way off the mark !

    4. Quote, ” Despite having extracted strategic concessions in the form of Bumiputra development including special preferences for Bumiputra contractors in public procurement and maintaining continued Government Linked Companies presence such as the dominance of Petronas in the petroleum market….”

    This statement from the IDEAS CEO, is a REAL teaser. It smacks of “bodekism” and under-lined the heavy and desperate hand of Singapore TO FORCE OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO SIGN HER OWN DEATH WARRANT BY HER OWN HAND AND BE ENSLAVED BY SINGAPORE FOREVER AND EVER. Just look at BREXIT. Easy to enter. Impossible to leave. And UK is full of top-notch experts then in 1972 and now in 2020. Our beloved Malaysia has only 4 real Malay elites left !

    IN THE NAME OF OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST, OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA SHOULD NEVER BE HOOD-WINKED BY SMOOTH TALKING CROOKS WHO SERVE FOREIGN INTERESTS AND SIGN HER OWN DEATH WARRANT BY HER OWN HAND KILLING ALL THE MALAYS/MALAYSIANS forever and ever.

    In the IDEAS statement on CPTTP, there was not one fact or iota on the REAL benefits for the Malaysians but were cleverly disguised to push Singapore’s famous BLUFFOLOGY to convince. It does not work these days because our beloved Malaysia had been diddled by Singapore ALL THE TIME !

    You may fool some people some of the time. But you cannot fool all the people all the time!

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Acheh !

    Tun,

    A headline which concerns the IHH RM 100 Million per annum (with no commissions on generic drugs) basic salary MAN now a parachute Minister in the Singapore Government’s PMO worth only RM 5 Million! We stupid Malaysians overpaid him for years by RM 95 Million ! I was wondering why my Singaporean friends call me stupid. Now I know why ! We are really stupid!

    Not only that his immediate Boss must have walloped RM 200 Million to RM 500 Million to balance the equation ! Vide. The Edge June 2018.

    There was a report from Bloomberg that the Turkish lira is the WORST CURRENCY IN THE WORLD.

    This fellow with the hard-earned Malaysian Government money via Khazanah, was alleged to have bailed out the fleeing Turks years ago as the lira was crashing. It is still crashing ! IHH bailed out two fractious Singh Brothers of Mumbai once in Singapore and then in India with billions of ringgits with Santa Claus aka Khazanah money !

    IT WAS ALLEGED THAT THIS FELLOW WAS EMPLOYED BY THE SQUEAKY CLEAN SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT FOR HIS BUSINESS ACUMEN OR WAS IT HIS LIST OF MALAYSIAN VIP HP NUMBERS OR BOTH ? Only Time will tell !

    Where were you, 004 Malaysia’s most beautiful Chief Spy with a ‘bajet’ of US$ 50 Million ?

    The headline, thus

    ” JAPAN’S MITSUI SAYS SHARE OF LOSSES FROM IHH AMOUNT TO RM 56 MILLION JULY-SEPTEMBER QUARTER. ” The Edge.

    The financial bomb now held by Khazanah may blow up soon.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No Problem.

    Salam YAB Tun Dr Mahathir
    Baru semalam saya melihat di media bahawa ada ura2 darurat mungkin dilaksanakan?
    Pada saya ,ingin saya tolak/lawan cadangan ini tidak kisahlah apa jenis darurat pun.Rakyat sudah banyak yang menderita. Negara ini saya tengok tenat dan dekat dengan kemusnahan.Saya tak tahu nak capai mesej ini ke kerajaan kecuali melalui Tun M. Kerana suadah lama saya tengok kerajaan ini cincai boncai dan hanya ikut kemahuan sendiri sahaja.Rakyat ditolak tepi dan dikenakan macam-macam.
    Tun, benda ini sudah berlarutan selama 7 bulan.Saya berharap 222 MP tak kisah didalam blok mana ,bebas ke,pembangkang ke, kerajaan ke apa2 parti sekalipun hentikan kegilaan jemaah menteri dan PM . Ini juga permintaan kepada sultan2 dan Agong untuk melakukan perbuatan yang tepat dan betul.
    Drpd komen saya dulu dengan kerajaan sekearang ditakutkan malaysia x kan bertahan 10 -20tahun namun dengan keadaan sekarang saya lihat malaysia tak akan bertahan setahun pon.
    Lower class well you already know,but even the middle class is disappearing .Adakah ada masa depan untuk Malaysia.Saya menghargai usaha2 tun dgn ku li dll.Tetapi saya fikir mesti ada ikhtiar yang lebih daripada semua.Sesuatu mesti dilakukan.

    Terima Kasih Tun
    Assalamualaikum

    YOU MEAN THE BEAUTIFUL SPY IS ‘BADAK’, IZZIT, MUBARAKCHAN?

    IT IS NOT A SECRET, ANYWAY.

  16. mubarakchan Oct 16,2020 2:16 AM

    Tun,

    I do not expect any one to be thrilled or get excited that our beloved Malaysia has her very own beautiful Chief Spy 004 with a her own lush Budget of US$ 50 Million !

    In Malaysia, we must always assume the unexpected becomes the expected !

    Sources have revealed, Chief Spy 004 turned part of the Rakyat’s hard-earned wealth, US$ 12.5 Million, to further her esoteric study of diamond encrusted Swiss or Cartier watches which should entitled her to a Ph.D (Putrajaya) !

    Whilst spending time in the KLCC, the foreign spies were all over the shop so to speak.

    There was this alleged Israeli spy in the boudoir or the Singaporean elephant in the IHH which could walloped RM 100 Million basic salary per year as reported in the Edge June 2018. However, this is nothing compared to the salary the elephant is getting as a Minister in the PMO Singapore – just RM 6 Million per year or S$ 2 Million or less after discount !

    Did Malaysia’s very beautiful Chief Spy 004 miss the Singaporean elephant in the PMO Malaysia’s room ?

    The official title of the elephant in Singapore is MINISTER IN THE PMO. SECOND MINISTER FOR MANPOWER AND TRADE AND INDUSTRY. Vide ST.

    Even though the elephant was openly seen to be talking to China, IT IS OBVIOUS THAT HIS BRIEF IS THE VERY IMPORTANT PORTFOLIO OF HIS INTIMATE KNOWLEDGE OF THE MALAYS WHO LOVED TO GIVE MALAY CHERRIES TO CROOKED CHINAMEN (Malaysian origin). Vide CNA TV. Hence, he is Minister No. 21 out of 21 Ministers in the sensible and highly selective Singapore Cabinet with a special desk in the PMO ! Next to the PM, I presume ?

    It was really a fine piece of Singaporean craft to inveigle RM 100 Million basic salary per year (without the lush generic drugs commissions) in IHH when he was only worth RM 6 Million or less in Singapore, out of the generous Malays who loved giving Malay cherries to crooked Malaysian Chinamen ! These generous Malays gave so many Malay cherries to crooked Chinamen that they have NO MORE MALAY CHERRIES FOR THE MALAYS ! Sad.

    For the non-mathematically minded, the elephant was over-paid RM 94 Million basic salary a year. His Malaysian Bossman must have walloped at least RM 500 Million under present Malaysian conditions ! His present Bossman was paid not more than RM 6 Million per year before they cut their salaries due to the Virus !

    In our beloved Malaysia the unexpected becomes the expected !

    Oh ! OO4 Malaysia’s very beautiful Chief Spy where were you when the Singaporean elephant was in the PMO ? In KLCC ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

  17. HBT456 Oct 15,2020 8:19 AM

  20. mubarakchan Oct 14,2020 11:43 PM

    Tun,

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON THE MALAYS AND THEIR CHERRIES.

    I have deliberately left out the huge loss of cherries by the Malays in Sime Darby and IHH Berhad, thus

    1. I like to remind that the Chinese individual who now wants the Malays to pull out his chestnuts out of the fire for him (via the UEM Sunrise Berhad (GLC) with a full Board of non-Executive Malay Directors appointed by Khazanah as Trustees to represent Government Policy to help Malays which may cost the Government more than RM 10 Billion of Public funds ear-marked for the Malays after the absurd and anti-Policy Merger) already had 3 Big bites of the Malay cherry being his original Selangor wealth, Sime Darby and EPF now holding the can in Battersea Power Station London and the Pudu Jail.

    AGAIN SIME DARBY IS INVOLVED WITH GIVING MALAY CHERRIES TO CHINAMEN TO HAVE A BITE OF THE MALAY CHERRY AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER.

    In fact, Sime Darby’s record in breaking official Government Policies is the worst on historical record by giving big bites of the Malay cherries to Chinamen over and over again.

    According to my record, SIME DARBY MALAYSIAN MANAGEMENT GAVE BIG MALAY CHERRIES TO THE CROOKED CHINAMEN AT LEAST 9 TIMES WHICH IS WAY ABOVE ANY OTHER GLC GAVE !

    Not only that the Malaysian Management coddled themselves up with a luxurious Life-style which was unbecoming of our beloved Malaysia struggling to deal with her poverty at the material time and sparked the horrendous abuse of money and everything in the GLCs to follow 2004-2018. For instance, here is another story which is absolutely true.

    On fine morning, Tommy Chua CEO Cycle & Carriage Ltd Group Singapore after the distinguished Tan Sri Basir Ismail and myself restructured the Group between 1984-1992, rang me up. He said, ‘ There is a cheap yacht for sale. I think we should buy it to entertain our clients. Boustead and other trading agencies have yachts too. ‘ I replied, ‘ Tommy, I am not into yachts. But if the other Directors agree, I have no objection !’ Tommy never came back.

    A few weeks later, I was lounging by the Star Ferry quayside in Tsimsatsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong. A huge white painted yacht came alongside and moored beside me. Two young expat couples with children accompanied by an Indian matron and butler disembarked. At the stern of the huge white yacht were the words’ SIME DARBY’. My eyes popped out as the Board and myself were not informed about this yacht which was hidden in Hong Kong ! On my return to KL, I asked why the Board was not informed about the yacht ?. The Boss of the side-kick replied that the yacht was to make the expats happy. I retorted, ‘ When is the Sime Darby Management going to make the shareholders happy ? ‘ Already I knew the Hong Kong, Singapore, Ascot and Melbourne Racing calendars were more important than making money for the shareholders !

    The Malaysian Management of Sime Darby 1992-2010 was the worst offender in self-indulgence and complete disregard for the Malay cherries for Malays.

    And who was this side-kick to the immediate Boss ?

    This fellow first came to my notice when I was Director of a true blue London plantation company which at its height, years before the 1970s was accustomed to shooing away locals from its estates with shotguns ! With Malaysianisation, this Malaysian turned up as an official.

    SOON THE COMPANY WAS SELLING ITS PALM OIL TO A RM2 INCORPORATED CHINAMEN OUTFIT RELATED TO HBT THE ESKIMO FROM TIMBUCTOO !

    I asked Dr Colliers, the Managing Dirctor, why we sold to those fellows? My good friend told me it was London’s Policy to sell to the highest price buyer ! I was dumbstruck because it was CHEATING AT THE WEIGHING BRIDGE WHICH THESE CHINAMEN COULD ALWAYS PAY A HIGHER PRICE ! I just kept quiet and said nothing because I already knew this young side-kick had families to look after ! The cheating is so simple that it defies any logic.

    Step One. The Chinamen Duo compromised the young Malaysian official who in turn introduced the weighing bridge operators to be compromised by the Chinamen Duo.

    Step Two. All is now ready for cheating and pay MORE THAN THE PRICE OF PALM OIL ANNOUNCED DAILY. With each lorry load of 5 tons of palm oil which passed through the weighing bridge, may be only 4 tons or less were recorded ! No one could beat the price offered by the crooked Chinamen Duo in collusion with the Malaysian Official who recommended them to the Managing Director Dr Martin Collier !

    EVENTUALLY THE DUO MADE SO MUCH CROOKED MONEY THAT THEY GOT INTO PARTNERSHIP WITH A HIGH EX-GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL AND TOOK OVER THIS TRUE BLUE BRITISH PLANTATION COMPANY ! As always, crooks never prosper. The crooked Chinamen Duo disappeared from the Public eye long long ago !

    2. THE ORDINARY SINGAPOREAN WHO WAS PAID RM 100 MILLION BASIC SALARY A YEAR BY IHH BERHAD ANOTHER GLC. Vide. The Edge June 2018.

    This RM 100 Million salary per year fellow IS ONLY WORTH RM 6 MILLION IN SINGAPORE WHERE HE IS A MINISTER AS APPEARED IN CNA TV. That’s the salary of the PM ! No wonder the Singaporeans always laughed at me as stupid because this Minister was overpaid by RM 94 Million a year in Malaysia ! There go the Malay cherries again. His Bossman must have walloped RM 500 Million ! Ouch !

    Here is another GLC charged to help the Malays BUT SOMEHOW IHH GOT INTO CROSS-BORDER BUSINESSES AND ENDED UP NOT ONLY OVER-PAYING THIS SINGAPOREAN OF NO SPECIAL MERIT BUT ALSO THE GOVERNMENT OF MALAYSIA’S KHAZANAH WAS INVOLVED IN BAILING OUT THE TURKS AS THEIR LIRA CRASHED AND STILL CRASHING AND 2 SINGH BROTHERS OF MUMBAI TWICE. SUCH ABSURD BUSINESS DERRING-DOS COST THE GOVERNMENT AT LEAST RM 10 BILLION OR MORE SERVING THE INTERESTS OF FOREIGNERS AND NOT THE MALAYS.

    I ask again, Dear Sirs and Madams, ‘ TO WHERE HAVE ALL THE MANY MALAY CHERRIES GONE ? Or ‘ HOW MANY MALAY CHERRIES REMAINED ?’

    Hidup Parti Penjuang !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    Tun,

    For those interested in detective or mystery stories, I now present some factual ones which the reader has to draw his or her own conclusions on the NUMBER OF MALAY CHERRIES LEFT WITH THE GLCs OTHERWISE KNOWN AS GOVERNMENT LINKED COMPANIES which Policies to benefit the Malays were approved by BN supported by UMNO, MCA, MIC. No reward will be given if anyone gives the correct answer !

    1. 2020. The UEM Sunrise and Ecoworld Merger.

    The Chinese individual had already had many bites of the Malay cherries in the Selangor boondocks, Battersea Power Station with EPF and Sime Darby now holding the can, the haunted Pudu Jail ! He would have bitten more Malay cherries if the Merger takes place i) the merger for small UEM debts to take over huge Ecoworld debts. ii) THE ULTIMATE GOVERNMENT BAILOUT WITH PUBLIC MALAYSIAN) MONEY !

    THE MALAYS HAVE HOW MANY CHERRIES LEFT ?

    Not only that, here is an incomplete list of the Malay Cherries which were given to the Chinese to bite as follows. No reward for correct answers !

    SIME DARBY.

    1. 1982-2020 ? – Mr A always turned to Sime Darby to save his chestnuts

    2. 1981 – Mr B took over Benta from his political ex-colleague the Chairman

    3. 1990 – Mr C an ex-jailbird bought without Board approval 2,000 acres of Nova Scotia estate north of Rawang for only RM 4 Million. This was warehoused awhile in a listed company. Then, it was shuffled up to RM 88 Million to Selangor Perangsang and another Chinaman. The real value was RM 200 Million. I asked the Malaysian in charge why the Board never approved this cheating sale. He told me that “since the 2,000 acres were less than 2% of the total assets of Consolidated Plantations, there was no necessity to get the Board’s permission.” I told him that he and his Boss could sell the whole assets of Consolidated Plantations in 2% lots WITHOUT THE BOARD’S APPROVAL ! Later, I was asked to resign by his immediate Boss using the Big Big Boss’s name – all their jobs were created by my 1972 Concept with the PM Tun Abdul Razak’s and YBM Tengku Razaleigh’s support to fast trek the Malays into big business without bothering the Chinese businesses. A MCA Leader called me ” A MALAY BUM SUCKER ” for assisting the Malays into big business without bothering the existing Chinese businesses !” Using this refrain, this MCA Leader made S$ 100 Million from 1977-1985 which he remitted somewhere to some one and more ! The Malaysians used to work in a PJ factory making black doughnuts surrounded by little bosses from London ! After I was sacked by my own employees using the Big Big Boss’s name, Sime Darby went bankrupt twice at RM 1.2 Billion in 1997 and RM 2.1 Billion in 2010 offering Malay cherries to crooked chinamen.

    4. 1992. Sime Darby paid a crooked Chinaman RM 32 Million for his “pondan” oil palm estate which no one wanted for 20 years at RM 20 Million, from a crooked Chinaman.

    5. 1993. Sime Darby went into partnership with its own employee, a crooked Chinawoman travel agent who collected much from Air Serendipity and emigrated to OZ. This is the true story. On the way to Zurich by Air Serendipity and after a fine repast, I asked the German sitting next to me why he was not flying by Lufthansa. He told me he would get US$ 30,000 for every US$ 100,000 his company spent with it. No wonder all the Sime Darby Malaysians travelled by Air Serendipity I thought !

    6. 1995. A crooked Chinaman could inveigle RM 350 Million from Sime Bank which was overlorded by an impeccable list of Directors. Sime Bank went bankrupt. So did Sime Darby for RM 1.20 Billion the very first time ! My Malay friend, a good man and banker took the rap

    7. 2006. A Chinaman passed his lousy asset for a huge profit to Sime Darby to hold the can

    8. 2010. Again Sime Darby went bankrupt for RM 2.10 Billion. This time with the OLD MALAYSIAN MANAGEMENT STILL IN PLACE SINCE 1990 ! A Chinaman without a moustache and a Singaporean woman of a certain age with a penchant for wearing hot pants in SIA’s 1st class cabin brought down Sime Darby. The PAP woman fund raiser was stripped naked by 3 bad investments, 2 in OZ. Sime Darby jumped into swampy Queensland fully dressed to save her chestnuts !

    BOUSTEAD PLANTATIONS

    2018. This company owned by Malaysia’s very own veterans bought a well-known pondan oil palm estate in Sabah at an astronomical price of RM 800 Million which no one wanted for half the price for over 20 years, from a Chinaman ! Vide, The Edge June 2018.

    TELEKOMS

    2014. TM bought a money losing tele-facilty from a Chinaman. TM is now holding the can.

    CONCLUSION.

    The list is incomplete. HOW MANY MALAY CHERRIES HAVE THE MALAYS GOT LEFT ?

    WHY THE MALAY MANAGEMENTS PERMIT THE CHINESE TO BITE AT MALAY CHERRIES ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

    HAVE YOUR DAUGHTER EVER RECEIVED SEXUAL FIXED/LANDE LINE TM PHONE CALLS FROM CALLERS WHO SPEAK VERY GOOD ENGLISH IN THE LATE 70S, MUBARAKCHAN?

    DURING THAT PERIOD, THESE CALLS ARE CHARGEABLE AND EXPENSIVE.

    I RECEIVED AND HANGED UP SUCH CALL ONCE WHO SPOKE VERY GOOD ENGLISH.

    THIS SEXUAL HARRASER DIDNT SOUND LIKE A MALAY NOR A CHINESE, I THINK HE MUST BE SOME ONE WHO WORKED IN TELEKOM MALAYSIA.

    I WAS CONFRONTED BY PERVERT TOO DURING THAT TIME ON LAND AND IN PUBLIC BUS TOO DURING THAT TIME, AND I DIDNT YELL BECAUSE I THOUGHT THESE PREVERBS ARE MENTALLY ILLED, OR SOMETHING.

    AFTER WATCHING ‘JOKER’, I THINK SUCH MENTAL HEALTH DISORDER IS WORLDWIDE PHENOMENON TOO THAT NEED TO BE TACKLED.

  27. mubarakchan Oct 13,2020 1:08 AM

    Tun,

    Here is a regular headline from an agency, thus

    ” FOREIGN SELLING OF EQUITIES NARROWED TO RM 27.8 MILLION LAST WEEK. BANK ISLAM. ” The Star.

    The more absurd going-ons on the Bursa like the proposed UEM Sunrise Berhad and Ecoworld Berhad merger, share-riggings etc, the faster the foreign investors will decamp from Malaysia. Sad.

    The sum of all absurd going-ons adds up to greater than the whole ! That’s how the World view us !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

  29. mubarakchan Oct 12,2020 12:24 AM

    Tun,

    ADDENDUM TO MY PREVIOUS COMMENT ON THE ABSURD UEM-SUNRISE BERHAD AND ECOWORLD BERHAD.

    A newsworthy headline worth noting, thus

    ” SENATOR URGES GOVERNMENT TO REVIEW UEM SUNRISE-ECOWORLD BERHAD MERGER PLAN. THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD RECONSIDER THE RATIONALE BEHIND THE REPORTED MERGER PLAN BETWEEN GOVERNMENT LINKED UEM SUNRISE BERHAD AND PRIVATE DEVELOPER GROUP ECOWORLD DEVELOPMENT GROUP BERHAD, SAID AMANAH SENATOR RAJA KAMARUL BAHRIN SHAH. HE SAID THE REVIEW IS NECESSARY AFTER THE RESIGNATION OF UEM SUNRISE CEO AND MANAGING DIRECTOR ANWAR SYAHRIN ABDUL AJIB.” Malaysiakini.

    The following headlines on the same ABSURD SUBJECT, thus

    1. ” DECISION ON UEM SUNRISE – ECOWORLD MERGER LIES WITH THE SHAREHOLDERS. ” The Star

    Wrong ! UEM SUNRISE HAS FULL GOVERNMENT BACKING. ECOWORLD IS AS STRONG AS ITS MAIN SHAREHOLDER OF ONE !

    2. ” MERGER MAY AFFECT UEM SUNRISE DEBT RATIO !” The Star.

    Absolutely correct. UEM SUNRISE DEBT SHOOT SKY HIGH !

    3. ” UEM GROUP PROPOSES MERGER OF SUBSIDIARY UEM SUNRISE AND ECOWORLD. ”
    The Star

    HEY ! HEY ! THE CHAIRMAN AND BOARD OF UEM SUNRISE FORGOT THEY DO NOT OWN THE COMPANY, THE GOVERNMENT VIA KHAZANAH DOES. This is the finest faux pas or ABUSE OF POWER BY APPOINTED TRUSTEES EVER !

    4. ” A MERGER TO EMERGE FROM TOUGH TIMES ! ” The Star

    YOU HAVE HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD, BOY !”

  30. mubarakchan Oct 12,2020 12:01 AM

    Tun,

    These three headlines do tell us a story, thus

    1 ” FULL SABAH ELECTIONS RESULTS. ” The Star

    A few days later,

    2. ” DR M SAYS A LOT OF MONEY SPENT ON THE SABAH ELECTIONS. ” Malaysiakini.

    Followed by these headlines,

    3. ” PROPOSED REAL PROPERTY MERGER RAISES THE SPECTRE OF A BAIL-OUT IN CORPORATE MALAYSIA. ” Singapore ST.

    4. ” A MERGER TO LEVERAGE THE STRENGTHS OF BOTH UEM-SUNRISE AND ECOWORLD SAYS GROUP CHAIRMAN OF UEM-SUNRISE. ” The Edge. Hmm !

    The headlines tell a story – a story of 2 property companies in big trouble. Ecoworld Berhad, the one with the Pudu Jail Development by 2019 had already owed the banks RM 4 Billion whilst UEM-Sunrise Berhad owed RM 3.5 Billion. These debts have ballooned by October 2020. In 2019, the total debts of these 2 companies amounted to RM 7.5 Billion by any measure which would be over RM 8 Billion today. Both are DROWNING IN DEBTS !

    THE ALLEGED GAME PLAN OF THIS ALLEGED ILL-FATED MERGER IS THIS :-

    STEP ONE – MERGE THE 2 HEAVILY INDEBTED COMPANIES, ONE UEM-SUNRISE BERHAD (GLC owned by Government) WHICH IS TASKED BY GOVERNMENT POLICY TO ONLY HELP MALAYS, AS SUPPORTED BY UMNO, MCA, MIC VIA BN AND ECOWORLD BERHAD WHICH PRIVATE SHAREHOLDERS BEING NON-MALAY HAD ALLEGEDLY ROLLED WEALTHILY FROM THE SELANGOR BOONDOCKS USING STATE ASSISTANCE AND ON TO THE BATTERSEA POWER STATION WHICH NO ONE WANTED FOR 50 YEARS, USING A MALAY BIASED AND GLC COMPANY, SIME DARBY AND HARD-EARNED PUBLIC FUNDS FROM EPF.

    These smart and clever folks HAD ALREADY HAD TWO BITES OF THE MALAY CHERRY, NOT ONE !

    Then, the FOURTH BITE OF THE MALAY CHERRY – PUDU JAIL ACQUISITION !
    Now, these Ecoworld folks are alleged to have a FIFTH BITE OF THE MALAY CHERRY WITH THIS PROPOSED MERGER AGAINST OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT GLC POLICY WHICH IS TO SUPPORT MALAYS ONLY, AS SUPPORTED BY UMNO, MCA, MIC !

    STEP TWO. THE ALLEGED REAL STORY CONCERNING THE MERGED FINANCIALS REVEALED. THE MERGED COMPANIES HAVE AN ALLEGED TITANIC DEBT PLUS (WHICH A PROPERTY COMPANY DEPENDS ON) – AS ALLEGED THERE WERE NO BUYERS FOR THE PUDU JAIL DEVELOPMENT AND MAY BE THE BATTERSEA POWER STATION ALSO ALLEGED TO BE IN BIG TROUBLE. Who knows the real financial story now ?

    STEP THREE. THE MERGED UEM-SUNRISE BERHAD/ECOWORLD BERHAD WITH ITS BIG SHAREHOLDER THE GOVERNMENT NOW LOCKED IN THE MERGER, CRIES FOR DESPERATE HELP FOR A GIGANTIC BAIL-OUT WHICH OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA HAS NEVER SEEN BEFORE !

    The alleged smart and clever thinking (not brilliant) of the Private Individual Ecoworld Berhad shareholders are alleged to be saved BY THIS FIFTH BITE OF THE MALAY CHERRY ! I now ask the readers here, HOW MANY CHERRIES HAVE THE MALAYS LEFT ?

    STEP FOUR. EVEN MY OLD FRIEND TUN ABDUL RAZAK’S SON, DSN, WHOM I MET ON A PLANE THE MORNING AFTER THE ONLY MALAY ENCYCLOPEDIA WAS BURNT IN 1986, IS STRONGLY OPPOSED TO THIS ANTI-GOVERNMENT POLICY AND ANTI-MALAY MERGER PROPOSED AS THE UEM-SUNRISE AND ECOWORLD MERGER.

    KUDOS TO DATO SERI NAJIB FOR SAFEGUARDING OUR NATIONAL INTEREST AND MALAYSIA’S CORPORATE DECENCY !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem AS LONG AS THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT BAILOUT PRIVATE NON-MALAY INDIVIDUALS ! It is better to bail-out MAS, Air Asia, O & G, all property companies at once, all SMEs etc. Not folks who already had 3 bites of the Malay Cherry ie. Selangor, Sime Darby/EPF, Pudu Jail acquisition ! An ancient saying, ” SOME PEOPLE MAY BELIEVE YOU SOME OF THE TIME. BUT YOU CANNOT CONVINCE ALL THE PEOPLE ALL THE TIME ! “

    Salam Dearest Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    1. It’s funny that some people (idiots?) still adore TSMY, and know very little about Bersatu. Bersatu was founded by Tun to combat corruption / graft – to overthrow the kleptocrats (corrupt leaders). Tun succeeded… But now Bersatu and the kleptocrats form the Tebuk Atap Government. This is insane @ foolish! Yeah, stupidity at its peak…

    2. I wonder why DSN is still a free man (could campaign for elections too…) even though he has been found guilty of corruption. Those (leaders) convicted of corruption (money laundering / stealing/ abuse of power / etc.) must be locked up. But, TSMY is so weak @ hopeless!

    3. TSMY has lost his popularity just within less than 1 year. The honeymoon is over for TSMY & gang. Covid-19 had saved the Tebuk Atap Government; yet Covid-19 could also be the cause of its downfall…too bad.

    https://www.malaymail.com/news/malaysia/2020/10/10/public-faith-in-malaysias-authorities-wanes-anger-mounts-as-countrys-covid/1911341

    4. ‘Abah’ (definitely not my ‘Abah’) should have ‘rotan’ (caned) his own Ministers first before making a statement to ‘rotan’ those (rakyat) who don’t abide by the Covid-19 SOPs. Such a stupid statement…

    5. It’s a pity that many in Sabah had died from Covid-19. I already said something about the RISK of having the state election during this pandemic, but TSMY was greedy. He should have just let DS Shafie stay as Sabah CM.

    Thank you Tun.

    – May Allah SWT bless Tun and family –

  32. HBT456 Oct 10,2020 9:22 PM

    ANOTHER 纸上谈兵, ‘ARMCHAIR’ STRATEGY, MUBARAKCHAN?

    I AM NOT SO WORRIED OF POST COVID-19, I AM MORE WORRIED OF SHOBBY WORKS CAUSED BY THE DELAY, AND EVEN BOEING BRAND IS NOT SPARED IN THEIR MAX 737 RANGE THAT PUT ROI ABOVE AVIATION PASSEGERS’ SAFETY JUST TO MAKE THE NUMBERS LOOK GOOD.

    I WAS BITTEN BY RED ANTS WHEN I CLIMBED RAMBUTAN TREE, AND IT HURTS BUT THAT DIDNT DETER ME TO CLIMB UP THE TREES AGAIN TO PLUG RAMBUTAN OWNED BY MY GRANDMA IN KAJANG WHEN I WAS SMALL.

    NO DOUBTS, NO ONE CAN DENY HISTORY BUT HISTORY TOO COULD BE MANIPULATED TO FAVOR SO AND SO BEHIND THE VOTERS.

    WILL THERE BE ANOTHER 6 MONTHS EXTENDED FOR LOAN/REPAYMENT MOROTORIUM ANNOUNCED BY PERDANA MENTERI, BEKAS MENTERI JOHOR, TO SAVE JOBS AND FUTURE OF MALAYSIA?

    I FOR SURE WONT ALLOW SNAP/GENERAL OR STATE ELECTION TO BE CALLED IN MALAYSIA DURING THIS PANDEMIC.

    BAK KATA, CONFIDENT CRISIS TOO IS NOT SOMETHING MP AND WANNABE CAN PLAY PLAY THAT COULD LEAD TO MORE DAMAGES MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY IN THE LONG RUN.

  33. Sri Sense Oct 10,2020 9:04 PM

    Good evening Tun M

    Sebenarnya ramai rakyat tak minat politik. The working class sibuk cari makan. Memang amat sukar nak cari kerja dalam musim COVID 19.

    Cerita Anwar nak jumpa Agong, orang Malaysia keturunan India minat dan promo. For the Malays, ramai malas la nak layan dia. Ramai lagi pemimpin Melayu lain. Pemimpin yang sudah tentu belum pernah masuk jel atau akan masuk jel.

    I don’t think belah Sabah and Sarawak minat dia. Lihat saja election Sabah yang lalu, berapa kerusi PKR menang.

    Orang sekarang tak minat la cerita tuduh menuduh pintu belakang, tebuk atap. Bukan dapat apa pun. Even cerita graft ka, apa ka, suka hati Tun la. Kalau I jadi Tun, jadi sajalah penasihat. Apa lagi Tun nak, dah jadi PM 22 tahun 22 bulan. Satu percapaian yang cukup baik. Tak perlu la dikisahkan hal2 lain.

    Kalau Tun nak rotan pun mungkin pemimpin2 UMNO yang lagak besar tapi dah masuk court. For the rest of the rakyat, its more about bread and butter, food on the table.

  34. HBT456 Oct 10,2020 1:27 PM

    DO YOU KNOW WINDOW AND MAC ARE 2 DIFFERENT SYSTEMS, FARID ISLAM?

    DO YOU THINK LOYAR, I MEAN FINANCIAL PLANNER PUN KENA ‘ROTAN’ WHEN THEY CHEAT THEIR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES ALA PAK MAN TELO SKIM CEPAT KAYA, FARID ISLAM?

    PILIH KASIH IS NOT NEW, AND ITS UP TO THE WANNABES TO DECIDE WHO THEY PREFERRED TO SUPPORT BEHIND THE SCENE.

    WHAT IS IN THE MIND OF MDT, CAN YOU GUESS?

  35. Fariq Islam Oct 10,2020 7:39 AM

    Assalamualaikum, Tun.

    We wish that PEJUANG will take a wider perspective in its political struggle, for the best interest and well-being of this nation.

    If it still takes the race-based stance, like what other race-based parties are doing, it brings no value. Our beloved country won’t progress, and instead, will go backward.

    It’s saddening to see that while other nations are busy fighting Covid, brainstorming attempts to recover economy, our politicians are busy talking about power and position.

  36. Fariq Islam Oct 10,2020 7:29 AM

    Assalamualaikum, Tun.

    There’s nothing wrong putting anti-graft as one of PEJUANG agendas.

    Elite Malays know what’s right and wrong in the eyes of our religious teachings, politics and moral.

    One point we should be clear is that the existing PM took office because Tun resigned and stepped down, not by force. Since Tun stepped down, there’s no point pinpointing Tan Sri for robbing the PM’s position. And, at that particular point in time, Tun intended also to put up a so-called Unity Government consisting of UMNO and PAS too.

  37. mubarakchan Oct 10,2020 1:57 AM

    Tun,

    ADDENDUM TO MY COMMENT ON MALAYSIA’S BEAUTIFUL SPY CHIEF 004.

    Further reports from the media on this side show of our beautiful Spy Chief 004 with apparent sticky fingers revealed thus

    ” EX-SPY CHIEF TRIAL. PM’S DEPT OFFICERS USE WITNESS CONDO TO STORE DOCUMENTS. ” Malaysiakini

    The beautiful Spy Chief 004 was allotted US$ 50 Million to catch spies. But no spies have been caught by her.

    However, without the US$ 50 Million hard cash, the biggest suspect must be the Israeli in the boudoir who slipped back to Israel after BN lost in 2018 or that faceless fellow from Singapore who was alleged to have walloped RM 100 Million basic salary a year before the alleged commissions from the generic drugs. Vide. The Edge 2018. He is now the PAP Minister in the Singapore Government and was seen leading a delegation to China. Vide CNA ! His salary now is only S$ 2 Million (RM 6 Million). IN OTHER WORDS, THIS FACELESS FELLOW WAS OVERPAID BY THE STUPID MALAYSIANS (Khazanah) BY RM 94 MILLION ! In Singapore, he is worth only RM 6 Million ! No wonder the Singaporeans always laughed at us as stupid Malaysians ! His place is now alleged to be taken over by another faceless Singaporean of no merit ! An alleged Spy ? Let Mitsui take-over the IHH Management. Then we can forget about spies and the beautiful Chief Spy 004 !

    To this very day I have not noticed any book published or a movie produced on the derring-dos of Malaysia’s most beautiful Chief Spy 004 who is an expert in handling pearl handled Walther PPKs ! She must thank her lucky stars (US$ 50 Million) that she is now the World’s expert on diamond encrusted watches of the most expensive kind ! But there was a rush to produce a movie and publish a book 4 months ago on Malaysia’s success in dealing with the Covid 19 virus Pandemic ! Both NON-STARTERS !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. Those who set-up the beautiful Spy Chief were not aware that Malaya/Malaysia had been spied upon since the 1950s. Here is an example :-

    In 1957, the KGB came to town and looked high and low for Malaya’s Foreign Policy. No matter how hard they tried, they could not find it. They returned to Moscow and reported accordingly. Later, the Russian Ambassador congratulated the Tunku on how well Malaya kept her Foreign Policy under lock and key. The Tunku replied, ” We never had a Foreign Policy !”. Hence, was the US$ 50 Million never intended to CATCH SPIES ?

    As I always said in Malaysia, we must always expect the unexpected !

  38. HBT456 Oct 9,2020 12:52 PM

    FOOTLOOSE, CUT’IN LOOSE, OH, PLEASE DONT TAKE AWAY MY BACON.

    THATS WHY I LEARNED THE WORD ‘NAMBIKEI’ FROM THE EX PERDANA MENTERI CUM MENTERI KEWANGAN.

    THE TERMINAL, AND THE PART THAT FOCUS ON INDIAN CLEANER WHO WAS FRAMED IN HIS MOTHER LAND DECIDED TO BE DEPORTED IN THE END OF THE HOLLYWOOD BLOCK BUSTER, NOT GRAFT BUSTER, THE TERMINAL.

    NOW I THINK ONE DAY ‘DRUG TRAFFICKER’ CAN ENDED UP AS MENTERI IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE, AND MY EX-COLLEAGUE FROM JOHOR MARRIED A MIDDLE CLASS SYRIAN TOLD ME THAT FEW YEARS BACK.

    IF YOU ASK ME, I PREFER BAJU KURUNG AND KEBAYA MORE THAN JUBAH, WHAT ABOUT YOU, FASHION DESIGNERS WHO TARGET MALAY CENTRIC MARKET?

  39. mubarakchan Oct 9,2020 12:43 AM

    Tun

    ADDENDUM TO THE PROPOSED GOVERNMENT’S KHAZANAH BAILOUT OF ECOWORLD BERHAD (Owned by private non-Malay individuals) USING UEM SUNRISE BERHAD (a GLC or Government Linked Company tasked to make money for Bumiputras) – A NON-STARTER.

    It is alleged that the major Project is the Pudu Prison.

    If this is so then, it is difficult to sell anything to the Chinese in Malaysia or China. Even the Malays and Indians would be reluctant to invest in such a Project – a former Prison where many were hanged innocently or otherwise. If there is NO MARKET FOR THE PROPERTIES DEVELOPED FROM A FORMER PRISON WHY GET A GOVERNMENT LINKED COMPANY, UEM SUNRISE BERHAD WHICH AIMS ARE ONLY TO SERVE BUMIPUTRAS INTERESTS, INVOLVED BIG TIME ? Moneyking where are you ?

    Official Policies forbid the proposed bail-out of these companies !

    By right, the Pudu Prison should have been turned into a lovely garden for the Rakyat with the DBKL providing creches for the working people and day clinics, etc.

    AND THE ALLEGED MISTAKE WAS TO LEAVE THE PRISON GATE UNDEMOLISHED. This oversight has cost the Project dearly.

    Graft busting and education/national unity.

    To make Tun’s mission of graftbusting as permanent feature of Malaysian political culture, it is time to replace the medium of education at all schools and universities/colleges in the country into English Language (all subjects except language learning). This will be acceptable to all Malaysians, especially the Malay working and rural classes, as mastery of the language will surely open up greater opportunity for social mobility for their future generation. Bersatu and UMNO need to make them as part of their manifesto – the uplifting of the entire Malay community through mastery of the international language and individual competitiveness. But, more importantly for Tun’s mission, the non-Malay communities will finally be attracted to dissolve vernacular schools, and this will finally bring the various races in the country together to think of themselves as just one people. Malaysian people.

    However, the Malay Language position can be safeguarded by the Constitution as the sole National Language (as in Singapore). English will be the main official language for education and workplace. All other languages can be preserved through their respective language associations, if they so wish.

    The only obstacle to such a move is the SINCERITY of the various races to ACTUALLY sit at the same table with one another. Which I doubt very much will happen, especially of the current adult generation of the various races, especially those on the Malay Peninsula. Whereas those in Sabah and Sarawak are more open-minded of actually integrating, and it is very common to see families with various races and religions under the same roof.

  43. milshah Oct 8,2020 11:08 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    How are you? I hope you are doing fine. I have been very busy opening my accounting firm, and now I have my own office. Business has not been good during this Covid-19 era, but as a Malay, I take it as a challenge to be successful in business. 17 years in the corporate world, primarily in the oil and gas industry, now I going into business full time. Some say its crazy to join business at this time, but yeah, this is the challenge.

    I have always wanted to talk about money politics. And this topic of graft, is a good time to talk about money politics. A politician need no necessarily be leaders of political parties. Their party members, are politicians too. They support their politician leaders. The “akar umbi” or grassroots of political parties are important. Without them, political leaders would be able to survive in politics. You need the grassroots to organise political events, to send out pamphlets, to put party flags, to be the security personnel, to show support. They are the unsung heroes of political parties. No one knows them, but without them, political parties cannot survive.

    And yet, even though their contributions, they can never accept any money. Nevermind that they have contributed their time, money for transport, to grow the party, to get voters to support their party. This time and their money could have been used to support their family, but instead they used it to contribute to the party. For them to accept any form of money, they are considered evil. They must sacrifice their time and money for “agama, bangsa dan negara”.

    This for “agama, bangsa and negara” is a good thing. But why must it be confined only to the grassroots of political parties. Why not expand it? What about teachers who teach future generations, and soldiers that guard the country borders? How about if we were to say to all these teachers and soldiers, you should do your job sincerely, and not receive any salary and wages. Do it for “agama, bangsa dan negara”.

    I sure if such a call was made for teachers and soldiers to do their job without receiving any pay, many will protest. They need the money to pay for their family. They need to pay rent, loan, utilities bill, children expenses.

    Which is exactly my point about the grassroots. Don’t the grassroots have family to feed, bills to pay? But if the grassroots receive an inch of pay, they are evil corrupt people. Are they? They have spent their time and money to grow the party, just like teachers teach, and soldiers protect. They did what they were suppose to do.

    Recently I met a former Bersatu Branch leader. He is your loyal supporter and is waiting for Pejuang to be registered to join. We accidently met at a mamak restaurant, because I know him through Bersatu gatherings. During our discussions about political events, he actually asked money from me. It was not much, just RM300. I asked what for? He said it was to pay for his his security workers of 3, each RM100. He has owns a security business. To my mind, how could a branch leader ask money from me. Where is the dignity? In front, you talk about “agama, bangsa dan negara” and at the back you are basically begging for money.

    To me whether you are a branch leader, a division leader, or even a member, you are a politician. You don’t go around begging for money.

    So we have these grassroots, and then we have the political leaders or Yang Berhormat. How are they doing? Well, based on the asset declaration instituted by your government, I would say quite well. An ADUN alone, could earn around RM25k per month. and Member parliament another RM25k per month, and if you are a cabinet minister another RM50k per month. All in all, you could get around RM100k per month. This excludes allowances. All your expenses are paid by the government as you perform your official duty.

    So far I have yet to here from these high paying politicans, “I don’t want this salary and allowances, I do it for agama, bangsa dan negara”.

    Money politics is wrong. It is open to abuse. But the current model which shows such a contrasting income between the political leaders and the grassroots. Maybe political leaders can assist the grassroots in their business. For example, for the Branch Leader I met, the political leader can ask him to try get a security contract through open tender. If he succeeds, he does a job, he gets paid for it.

    I am not saying the model is perfect, but sometimes we have to based on reality and practicality of it. To be too idealistic may not be practical.

    Just my opinion, open for discussion.

    Tun,

    Here is the proper rendition of the 2019 Annual Accounts of UEM Sunrise Berhad and Ecoworld Berhad. Sorry for the typo error.

    1. UEM Sunrise Berhad ( A Government owned GLC ). Total assets = RM 14.0 Billion. Borrowings = RM 3.5 Billion. Cash = RM 1.0 Billion. Today’s share price = 40 sen.

    2. Ecoworld Berhad ( Owned by private individuals now stuck ). Total assets = RM 11 Billion. Borrowings = RM 4.0 Billion. Cash = 0.60 Billion. Today’s share price = 40 sen.

    i) The First Principle is this Merger is against declared Government Policy which is for Khazanah to make money for the Bumiputras.

    ii) The Second Principle is no Government should bail-out a Private business owned by Private Individuals. Successive Governments 2004-2020 told all and sundry that ‘WHAT IS GOOD FOR SINGAPORE IS GOOD FOR MALAYSIA’.

    THE SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT NEVER BAIL-OUT A PRIVATE BUSINESS OR INDIVIDUAL/S 1959-2020.

    iii) The Third Principle is the Government should avoid being CORRUPT OR INVOLVED IN GRAFT BY DOING BUSINESS WITH SELECTED INDIVIDUALS.

    THE PRIME MINISTER HAS TOLD ALL AND SUNDRY THAT HIS GOVERNMENT HAS ZERO TOLERANCE FOR CORRUPTION OR GRAFT WHICH IS ALLEGED IN THIS PROPOSED UEM SUNRISE/ECOWORLD MERGER.

    Here is one illiterate investment adviser still continue to mis-inform the innocent investing public thus,

    ” MONEYKING. WHY THE ECOWORLD-UEM DEAL IS A BETTER DEAL FOR UEM THAN ECOWORLD ?

    If so Moneyking, why the clever and brilliant Chinese private individuals in the Ecoworld sell out to the MALAY CIVIL SERVANTS FROM THE GOVERNMENT NOW IN COMMAND IN UEM SUNRISE? Please explain!

    The fact is the clever and brilliant Chinese private individuals USED DOLLOPS OF GOVERNMENT PUBLIC MONEY TO LEVERAGE THEIR WEALTH IN SELANGOR, BATTERSEA POWER STATION, LONDON WHICH NO ONE WANTED FOR 50 YEARS WITH SIME DARBY AND EPF AND NOW MADE A MONUMENTAL MISTAKE BY GETTING STUCK IN PUDU JAIL. Sime Darby is now financially stressed by over-reaching itself!

    No Government of Malaysia should get involved in such a MERGER which the distinguished Tun Ismail Mohd. Ali would have said. ” It stinks!”

    HIDUP PARTI PEJUANG!

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem

    Salam Dearest Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    GRAFT / CORRUPTION

    1. I am with Tun on Tun’s mission to combat graft / corruption (and abuse of power).

    2. Based on our Constitution, Malays are Muslims. By right Malays-Muslims must know that corruption is a BIG SIN, and must be avoided at all cost!

    3. Unfortunately, most Malays feel more disgusted towards pig (eating pork @ bab*…I also feel disgusted…) than corruption. Most probably, they have very little knowledge (or misinterpretation) about the true teachings of Islam.

    4. Eating pork is sinful (individual/personal sin). Taking / Giving bribes or involved in any corrupt practices is also sinful, but more sinful (worse) because it involves other people (e.g. rakyat); corruption involves at least two parties / individuals.

    5. A corrupt person deals with ‘forbidden money’ (‘duit haram’), and this person most probably feeds his/her entire family using money from his/her corrupt activities. Their ‘skin/flesh’ (from eating/consuming foods-drinks using ‘duit haram’) would be burnt in hell…

    6. Tun and PEJUANG must explain (harder) to the rakyat how sinful / evil corruption is, and relate it to the downfall of the ‘ummah’ (if corruption prevails).

    7. We (Muslims) can still stand tall if the non-Muslims (kafirun) attack us (verbally / physically/etc.) as long as we stay strong (mentally & physically) and persistent in defending ourselves and our faith, but we will definitely suffer badly (can be totally destroyed/ wiped out) if the entire ‘ummah’ is infested by corruption. History tells all…

    P/S:
    – I’m Malay, and I support Tun. Love you Tun…
    – An idiot is trying very hard to undermine Tun and PEJUANG…This person is nothing compared to Tun…just an empty can…the plain truth.

    Thank you Tun.

    – May Allah SWT bless Tun and family –

    Graft busters.

    PKR and now Pejuang. The EYE. The moment Anwar Ibrahim was set free, it has lost its significance. The moment Anwar Ibrahim becomes the Prime Minister, it would turn into a target for critics. Pejuang’s objective is graft busting, correct(?). Or wasn’t that PKR’s objective, too.

    Momentary significance. That is compared to grassroot based political organizations (Bersatu, Umno, Pas, Dap).

    How long do they last.

    Tun,

    We must keep up with the times, thus

    ” MINISTERS UNDER QUARANTINE, PM SAYS, NO DOUBLE STANDARDS. ” Malaysiakini.

    At the last count, there are 71 Ministers in the Government who are not amateurs, fakes, liars, copy-cats, morons, clowns, play-boys, racists, idiots, plagiarists or charlatans

    Does anyone feel that the high Government Officials did not follow their own rules and regulations which set a bad example of lack of discipline and responsibility and without fail got infected by the Covid 19 virus ? Where else but Malaysia ?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem,

  54. mubarakchan Oct 7,2020 12:53 AM

    Another headline on Malaysia’s very own beautiful spy chief 004, where is 007? thus

    ‘ EX-SPY CHIEF ALLEGEDLY BOUGHT 6 LUXURY WATCHES WITH US$ 12.1 MILLION FROM GOVERNMENT. ‘ The Edge.

    According to sources, the spy chief’s office was in the PMO’s office. She must have taken the Yiddish song from Central and Eastern Europe to heart, ” CASH IS KING.”

    To pay US$ 12.1 Million for 6 watches, this showed she has got taste and class instead of buying 60 or 600 watches for the same amount of money. What has not been revealed so far is her i) Area of operation. ii) Did she catch any spy at all especially those from Singapore or the Israeli in the boudoir with a stupendous Budget of US$ 50 Million when some of our fellow Rakyat were starving?

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem.

  55. mubarakchan Oct 7,2020 12:13 AM

    Tun,

    It is timely that you brought up this “GRAFT” topic at the present time before people soon forget the deleterious effects of such a powerful and negative force which may destroy the very roots of our beloved Malaysia which we all built up in our Lifetimes. With GRAFT, we lose all what we had built, the big and the small.

    Yet, this very day, there are people still attempting to pull wool over the eyes of all in broad daylight concerning such fraudulent exercises as announced publicly over the media.

    Not only that, the PM has already said in no uncertain terms that he and his Government is against CORRUPTION or GRAFT in any form or guise.

    Here are the desperate headlines in an attempt to sway public opinion even in the middle of the multiple trials of huge thefts of Public Money by leading personalities, thus

    1. ” PROPOSED REAL ESTATE MERGER RAISES SPECTRE OF FINANCIAL BAILOUT IN CORPORATE MALAYSIA. ” Singapore ST

    2. ” A MERGER TO LEVERAGE THE STRENGTHS OF BOTH UEM SUNRISE AND ECO-WORLD SAYS UEM GROUP CHAIRMAN. ” The Edge

    3. ” ECO-WORLD MERGER PLAN FAVOURS UEM SUNRISE SAYS KENANGA. ” The Edge.

    THIS IS UTTER RUBBISH AS THE ANNUAL ACCOUNTS SHOWED! WITHOUT A DOUBT UEM SUNRISE WILL CARRY ECO-WORLD HEAVY BURDEN OF THE PUDU JAIL DEVELOPMENT IN THIS VIRUS CRISIS. Don’t be stupid, Kenanga from Singapore ?

    HERE ARE THE STATISTICS FROM THE 2019 ANNUAL REPORTS OF BOTH UEM SUNRISE AND ECO-WORLD, THUS

    i) UEM SUNRISE BERHAD . Total assets – RM 14.0 Billion.
    (A Government owned Borrowings – RM 3.5 Billion.
    GLC) Cash – RM 1.0 Billion

    Today’s share price 40 sen

    ii) ECO-WORLD BERHAD Total assets – RM 11.0 Billion
    (Owned by Private Borrowings – RM 4.0 Billion
    Individuals now stuck) Cash – RM 0.6 Billion

    Today’s share price 40 sen

    My analysis of these 2 Property Companies are as follows :-

    1. UEM SUNRISE BERHAD IS A GLC OR GOVERNMENT LINKED COMPANY WHICH SUBSTANTIAL SHAREHOLDER IS THE KHAZANAH. UEM WAS BAILED OUT FROM THE RENONG BERHAD GROUP VIA DANAHARTA 2004 AFTER RENONG COLLAPSED IN 1998. TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD HAD HIS BRIEF FOR KHAZANAH 1981-2003. AFTER THE LUSH PICKINGS BY THE CRONIES 2004-2008, THE REMNANTS FROM THE DANAHARTA BEING UEM WAS PASSED TO KHAZANAH WHICH FORMED PART OF THE KHAZANAH EMPIRE OF A SMART INDIVIDUAL WHO FOLLOWED THE DICTUM ‘ BEST TO MAKE MONEY IS NOT TO OWN A BUSINESS!’ AT THE MATERIAL TIME THE SINGAPOREAN WHO IS NOW A SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT MINISTER WALLOPED RM 100 MILLION A YEAR BASIC SALARY (not including the alleged commissions from generic drugs) FROM IHH BERHAD OWNED BY KHAZANAH. Vide The Edge 2018.

    If the maidservant walloped RM 100 Million a year basic salary, how much do you think the Boss Man gets ? Good question.

    2. BOTH THE PROPERTY COMPANIES UEM SUNRISE AND ECO-WORLD ARE IN FINANCIAL TROUBLE WHICH THE COVID 19 STRIPPED THEM OF ATTEMPTS TO HIDE MISMANAGEMENT BY THE PROPOSED MERGER. OUR GOVERNMENT MUST NEVER HOLD THE CAN FOR PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS WHO OUT OF GREED MAKE MONUMENTAL MISTAKES!

    3. ECO-WORLD PROBLEMS ARE MUCH BIGGER BECAUSE ITS OWNERS HAD ALWAYS USED GOVERNMENT FUNDS TO LEVERAGE THEIR RISKS LIKE IN SELANGOR, BATTERSEA POWER STATION WHICH NO INVESTOR WANTED FOR 50 years! Yet, Sime Darby, EPF and the promoters which now own Eco-World jumped in fully dressed! NOW ECO-WORLD IS CAUGHT IN PUDU JAIL!

    4. WITHOUT QUESTION NO GLC OWNED BY KHAZANAH OR NOT, FUNDED BY THE RAKYAT MONEY AND WITH A DIFFERENT INVESTMENT POLICY LIKE UEM SUNRISE SHOULD BE PERMITTED BY ANY GOVERNMENT TO BAIL-OUT THE MISTAKES AND LOSSES OF INDIVIDUAL PRIVATE INVESTMENTS LIKE ECO-WORLD. THE GOVERNMENT BAIL-OUT IN WHATEVER KIND OR SPECIES COME FROM THE INCOME TAX ON ALL THE RAKYAT OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA – the rich and the poor.

    5. NEVER HAD SUCH SNEAKY BAIL-OUT BEEN CARRIED OUT SO OPENLY IN A NON-ESSENTIAL INVESTMENT UNLIKE TNB, TM OR PETRONAS!

    6. THE GOVERNMENT MUST NEVER BAIL-OUT PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS USING PUBLIC GLC COMPANIES OR MONEY. THIS IS CORRUPTION OR GRAFT AS THE WORLD SEES IT. IF THIS GRAFT IS DONE, MORE MONEY WILL FLOW OUT OF MALAYSIA!

    7. AT PRESENT, NOT ONLY ARE THE PROPERTY COMPANIES ARE IN TROUBLE BUT ALSO THE O & G, CONSTRUCTION, AND COUNTLESS SMEs ARE IN BIG FINANCIAL TROUBLE. THEY SHOULD ALL BE ASSISTED BY THE GOVERNMENT AND NOT ONLY THE SELECTED FEW WHICH IS KNOWN AS GRAFT!

    8. THE UEM SUNRISE BERHAD IS NOW ALLEGED TO BE WITH ECO-WORLD BERHAD. Vide. The Edge. How can this be when UEM Sunrise Berhad is owned by the Government of Malaysia’s Khazanah. Where is the ethics, propriety, conflict of interests, loyalty, sobriety, protection of the minority etc ?

    9. HOW CAN 2 WONGS MAKE A RIGHT OR 2 WRONGS MAKE A WHITE ? Where else but Malaysia as the World now says. Vide. Singapore ST. OR HOW CAN TWO MONEY LOSING COMPANIES MAKE MONEY WHEN EVEN ONE COMPANY CANNOT MAKE MONEY. Are we in Alice-in-Wonderland by Lewis Carrol ?

    10. This UEM Sunrise Merger caper clearly illustrates how deep the depth of the Yiddish song from Central and Eastern Europe “MONEY IS KING” had taken a firm root in the the minds of some members of the Rakyat !

    11. HIDUP PARTI PEJUANG.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No Problem.

    THE GOVERNMENT OF SINGAPORE NEVER BAIL-OUT ANY PRIVATE BUSINESS. So, we must followed what we have been told by the previous Leaderships, ‘ WHAT IS GOOD FOR SINGAPORE IS GOOD FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA!” No more. No less. Acheh!

  56. Bilis Oct 6,2020 8:51 PM

    Dear Tun.

    Assalamualaikum.
    Hope you are well and safe.

    Your point # 3.
    I beg to differ. Malays do dislike bribery.

    The options the Malays have to choose are not between corrupt vs non corrupt.

    Instead, it’s about corrupt leader vs people who attack Islam.

    To the Malays, people who attack Islam is the bigger enemy.

    So they have to choose the smaller devil despite they do not like both devils.

    Dalam keadaan darurat di mana makanan yang tinggal hanyalah bangkai ayam yang tidak disembelih dan daging babi, orang Melayu akan memilih bangkai ayam. Ini bukan bermakna Melayu tidak kisah makan bangkai ayam, tapi babi adalah lebih menjijikkan.

    Ramai Melayu sudah tolak Umno yang korup (umpama bangkai ayam) pada PRU yang lalu. Tapi kemudian DAP menunjukkan sikap kurang ajar (umpama daging babi) mereka kepada Melayu dan Islam.

    Saya rasa Tun dapat menilai perumpamaan yang saya beri. Mungkin Tun patut berhenti menyalahkan Melayu semata-mata. Lihatlah apa najis mughalladzah yang pemimpin DAP seperti P Ramasamy hidangkan kepada Melayu.

    Kenapa semasa Tun jadi PM selama 22 bulan Tun tidak cuba menyamak najis mughalladzah di kalangan PH?
    Melayu sudah tahu bangkai ayam itu najis.

    Tun the graftbuster.

    I would say that the Malays don’t like corruption anymore than the other races. So, I wouldn’t say that DAP and PKR are any more holier than UMNO and Bersatu. PAS is probably the only party that is officially (I say officially) an anti-graft party, and that’s more to do with its religious manifesto, not that PAS leaders have any other choice.

    I would say that if this country is not so hung up on its multiple racial divisions, and instead simply imagine themselves as just one people, then it is easier to fight graft. But as it has been since gaining its independence in 1963 until today and the foreseeable future, it is matter of the ethnic identity as more important than other issues like the economy and corruption. Thus, to the Malays, after getting rid of a monstrous Malay ex-prime minister, perhaps UMNO/Bersatu/PAS is the lesser of the two evils, compared to PKR/DAP/Pejuang.

    Turning to the issue of Sabah and the ridiculous unending Philippine claims on Sabah, this is a symptom of one country feeing envious of its neighbors. The Philippines is not exactly a poor country like a lot of countries in Africa and Asia, as annual economic growth in that country is pretty good. The problem is that their government has plenty of mouths to feed (like a hundred millions) and it seems that centralized economic planning has resulted in economic disparity between the Manila region and the rest of the country. Singapore has done a good job helping Johor to develop, and now it is KL that is growing envious of Johor, rather than the other way round. Sabah’s rapid rise has not gone unnoticed in the Philippines, and the growing disparity between Malaysia and the Philippines is not helping relations between these two neighbors. It is not actually the extinct Sulu sultanate that is actively voicing the Manila claim, but ordinary Philippinos in Luzon and northern Philippines, led by their presidents, that are claiming Sabah as part of the their country(!). The Spaniards signed an international treaty with the British and Germans in the 19th century, removing North Borneo permanently from the Spanish Philippines map. North Borneo/Sabah was British. Full stop.

    Perhaps it is a good time to assist the Philippines in developing its southern islands, and this not only would open up business opportunities for Malaysian companies, but prospering its neighbor would help to lessen the tension between Manila and Kuala Lumpur. For sure, Sabah will have less headaches having to deal with the pestering Philippinos as well.

    Tun,

    Your latest topic “GRAFT” is as old as the hills since Adam and Eve. No Nation has escaped “GRAFT” in any form today. All Governments claim to take firm measures to eliminate graft or corruption.

    From my own experiences, in the 1950s, the Police Chief of Hendon, North London used to drop by my friend’s Chinese Restaurant after closing time for a meal and a beer.

    Years later, I visited my Singaporean tycoon friend’s office and found his family looking through packets of yellow diamonds brought to them by a Jewish dealer. My friend said, ” Buy some. It’s cheap.” I asked my friend why he bought so many packets of yellow diamonds worth only a few thousands of Singapore Dollars each. He replied, ” These are for the wives of the Australian politicians whom we have to deal with.” I learnt something new that day.

    In Malaya, my recollection of graft by the pre-War Administration before World War II was minimal as there was no means of contact between the very few rulers and the population. But with the Japanese Occupation 1942-1945, the huge difficulty to make a living made the difference. I shall not comment further.

    Fast trek to 2003, “GRAFT” was under a certain measure of control between 1957-2003. As most people are aware, “GRAFT” cannot be completely eliminated but can only be contained.

    From 2004-2020, all sorts of “GRAFT” took place with new tricks and new players. Until now, it is a common place for elected representatives to change political parties like changing a shirt for reasons best known to themselves.

    The Big Question before us is how to eliminate “GRAFT” ? My view is as follows, thus

    1. IT IS THE TOP LEADERSHIP WHICH MUST SET AN EXAMPLE.

    It is pointless to shout about getting rid of corruption when the Bosses broke all the rules. Corruption is not only about money. It could be the abuse of Power, Time, dispensation of favours like licences, titles, permits, etc.

    2. DISCIPLINE is an important virtue of a Leader. But how many could reject the many offers which were offered to them?

    From my own experience in managing the biggest bankrupt textile company in the mid-1970s – 1975-1984, money, gifts, free travel, and women were offered, some offered themselves. I took none on offer. Except for the women, I gave the rest to the staff or factory employees who would get at each Annual Pesta, motorbikes, fridges, furniture to TV sets etc. All would be happy and satisfied.

    I KNEW ONCE I BROKE MY DISCIPLINE THE WHOLE FACTORY WILL BE UP-SIDE DOWN AND REALLY GO BANKRUPT IN A FEW MINUTES BECAUSE THE CONSORTIUM OF 5 BANKS LED BY MIDF DID NOT BAILOUT THE FACTORY WITH EVEN ONE SEN!

    I made millions of ringgits for the Consortium even though I was not a shareholder 1975-1984.

    3. THE TOP LEADERSHIP MUST BE AWARE THAT THE EMPLOYEES, THE MILLIONS OF RAKYAT THEY RULE OVER OR TAKE CARE OF, EXPECT THE GOODIES TO FLOW DOWN THE SIDES OF THE POWER PYRAMID.

    In other words the right Policies must be implemented to back up the good Leadership. Then, they will comply with whatever Policies the top Leadership implement successfully. Do not bluff your own employees or citizens, they know the Truth! In Malaysia, they are always smiling and don’t complain openly.

    4. CHECKS OR MONITORING BY THE TOP LEADER ON THOSE “TRUSTED ONES” WITH POWERS LIKE THOSE CROOKED CLOSEST AIDES EXCEPT ONE.

    The whole lot of closest aides except one, 1981-2003, walloped money big time which became legend AND SET A VERY BAD EXAMPLE FOR THE NEXT LOT OF CLOSEST AIDES TO FOLLOW 2004-2018. This latter lot walloped billions of ringgits unlike the previous lot which only collected banks, Stradivarius violins at US$ 5 Millions apiece etc.

    NOT ONLY THAT, IT IS ALLEGED THE SINGAPOREAN WHO WALLOPED A SALARY OF RM 100 MILLION PER YEAR FROM IHH BERHAD (Vide The Edge 2018) IS NOW A MINISTER WITH THE SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT. HE APPEARED ON CNA LEADING A SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT DELEGATION TO CHINA (not Turkey or India which is for Malaysia) JUST A FEW DAYS AGO.

    IF THE TOP LEADERSHIP DOES NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MALAY AND A SINGAPOREAN CHINESE ( I believe his replacement is also from Singapore and hospital management is exactly like hotel management ), then HOW ? Or a Yiddish song from Central and Eastern Europe, “CASH IS KING” now sung by all Malaysians. Again how ? How to curb anything at all especially GRAFT is the most difficult to curb ?

    5. To curb “Graft” in whatever form, the Top Leader must be knowledgeable about the World at large and its main players – how they behave and perform ?

    To train an acceptable Leader to govern a country, it will take years to find the right one from amongst its many trained and educated elite which have never been born out of stone in countries like the UK, France, Germany, Japan, China, Singapore, sometimes even the US stumbled in this critical issue.

    6. IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TODAY, THE MALAY ELITE ARE OUR BELOVED TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD, TUN DR DAIM ZAINUDDIN, TAN SRI RAFIDAH AZIZ, DATO SERI SHARIL REDZA RIDZUAN, DATO SERI MUKHRIZ, Syed Saddiq if he goes up to Oxford and may be Dato Seri Azmin who alleged in the Dewan Rakyat that the DAP promoted the approval of the sneaky Lee Kuan Yew CPTPP (ex-TPPA) the Malaysia/Malays/SMEs Killer in August 2018 whilst the PM was absent! AT LEAST THEY ARE COGNISANCE OF SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always. No problem. THE ROT ALWAYS BEGINS AT THE TOP as the ancient saying goes !
