I spend RM1.20 and bought a copy of The New Straits Times. Something that I normally don't do. Buy the NST I mean. Not spend RM1.20 which these days buys me a small glass of teh tarik that tastes like it's been siphoned off the sewage of the nearby Coffeebean or Starbucks. But I digress. It was the best RM1.20 I've spent in a long time la. What caught my eye as I passed by the newstand was the NST's front page editorial.
"NST says: Get on with the job"
At first I thought it was the Jalan Riong cronies admonishing the Pakatan Rakyat state governments or something like that la. But when I read the story I was dumbfounded. The NST was actually scolding Barisan Nasional, UMNO and all the hot air YB's in that group. Wah Lun!!! Damn good man. And the NST didn't mince words either...
"what has Umno, the leading partner of the coalition and largest party in parliament, been doing since March 8? Bickering, pointing fingers, baying for vengeance and doing everything imaginable except rolling up its sleeves and getting down to the work of governing."
"Enough is enough".
"People are getting fed up with Umno’s moaning and groaning"
For the first time since it happened Keris Hishammudin has been told off for his theatrics with the keris.
Khir Toyo too wasn't spared by the NST who told him in no uncertain terms that he screwed up big time with the demolition of the Hindu temple in Selangor and his audacious presentation of the broom to members of his administration when he should have gotten the biggest broom.
I can't remember the last time I had so much pleasure reading The New Straits Times. I might even walk by the news stand tomorrow and see if I want to spend another RM1.20 and buy another issue.
