(Hmmm...shall I have it with beige or pink leather seats? Would a jacussi be too extravagant?)
I like Pak Lah. He has an honest face. He has a nice smile. For a time he looked like a man who could be trusted.
Following hot on the heels of the multi-million Ringgit yacht debacle and the untimely RM23million “gift” to his old school he’s now being grilled on the blogs about the purchase of a luxury executive jet which purportedly may cost up to US$60million.
Of course, the usual and by now typically lame Pak Lah excuses…
No it’s not for me. It’s for everybody. The King will use it also.
No, the government is not spending taxpayers money.
The plane will be purchased by a company.
Of course he does not mention, but everybody knows, that the company that he named is 100% owned by the government.
I still like Pak Lah. He has an honest face. He has a nice smile. He looked like a man who could be trusted.
But Pak Lah is turning out not to be a good or even adequate politician.
And as a Prime Minister he sucks. Big time. So far. (See? I can be optimistic.)
