Now read that statement again. NEP elements will not be abolished but liberalised in STAGES.
As an ordinary Malaysian what would you be thinking after your read or hear that from your Prime Minister in waiting? Here's what I think people will think...
Bumiputra: What the fuck!!! How dare they even think of treading on our RIGHTS!
Non-Bumiputra: Wah! Good, good, good.......errrrrr.......I think good la......isn't it?
So what I am saying is that statements like these from politicians and worse from our country's leaders serve no useful purpose other than to confuse the citizens, foreign investors and of course to give the flers something to say that will make front page press la. I mean if you want to NOT abolish but to LIBERALISED in stages then tell us HOW the fuck you plan to do that.
"When I spoke (about the NEP) in an interview with Bloomberg recently, I did not mean that everything in the NEP would be abolished now. -I said that when the Malays and Bumiputeras have attained success and the confidence to compete at the domestic and global levels, then they would no longer need quotas or special considerations..."
Now what the fuck does that mean? "...have attained success and the confidence to compete at the domestic and global levels..." Can you please clarify so that Bumiputras know what to aim for and non-Bumiputras know what to expect?
"What I mean is gradual liberalisation, not saying that tomorrow we will do away with every single provision..."
Gradual liberalisation....sure...sounds like a good idea. But what is the time frame? Where are the plan details?
"This concept of gradual liberalisation...I think it is something that can be accepted by everyone", he said. Wow! You actually figured that out all by yourself!
Come on la. If you want to liberalise then say la what the real plan is. Like...okay this year we will start doing this which will run until that year and then this is going to happen and so on .... A PLAN la. Then ah of course, all you Bumiputras don't have to worry about anything because this is what it actually means for you...1-2-3-4...ah see? It is a good plan. Ah...non-Bumiputras...See? We've always said we take care of ALL Malaysians. So this liberalisation plan means that
So hard to understand this meh, YB? Ok la, in other words tell us facts la not political rhetoric.
That's the trouble with Malaysian politicians. Isn't it? Always shoot mouth before engaging brains. They always tell us that they are going to do SOMETHING but they never tell us what that something is. Guess la. Hahahahahaha...... Which of course gives rise to speculations, suspicion, distrust......stirs racial sentiments......
And then Najib makes one final, really TOO LAN (ask someone to explain this Hokkein expression if you don't get it) statement...
"As I had said before, we will be fair to all, we will not take away or deny the rights of the other communities." But then... Najib said he would also ensure that nobody would deny the Malays their rights.
"I will continue to champion the Malay agenda. Let there be no one, whether in or outside this convention hall, question this".
Many words saying absolutely NOTHING.
