Fantastic fact #1
(From The Sun)Najib, who is on an official visit to the UAE, had earlier visited several iconic projects in Dubai such as the world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa, and the Meydan city development.
"This place is buzzing with construction and development projects. They have the vision, boldness and courage. And they have the commitment to deliver and execute projects in a very fast and timely manner............it is a lesson to me and to all of us, that if we want to transform Malaysia, we must start with a vision, and we must have the boldness and courage to look at the big picture" - Najib Razak
Errr...was it just my imagination or did I read not so long ago that Dubai was in the shit house and needed some US$10 billion from the UAE to bail it out of its financial woes from developing a little too fast and with a little too much courage and not enough foresight perhaps? And now Najib is saying we should follow Dubai and head down that same road?

"......if we want to transform Malaysia, we must start with a vision, and we must have the boldness and courage to look at the big picture......"
Oh-oh...here we go again. Somebody (maybe APCO) is going to come up with another 'Vision'. We had a vision. 2020? So what happened to that? But then Mr. Najib you've not been very lucky or productive with your slogans so what makes you think your 'visions' will do any better? Get your checkbooks out cos I'm thinking that next it will be roll-out time for 1Malaysia 1Vision!
Fantastic fact #3
Najib said even Saudi Arabia was introducing changes in the country, including in the education field.
Well, at least there we were first. Or at least keeping up with the Saudis. We've changed our education system more times than the Saudis have changed their Rolls Royces and Ferraris.
(Actually, I can almost hear those Saudi flers asking Najib, "Oi! What you mean by EVEN Saudi Arabia ha??!!")
Fantastic fact #4
Elsewhere in The Star today, Najib strips down, ducks into a phone booth, wears his underwear on the outside and TA-DA...... Sooooper Najib!!!
"No need to worry. UAE will ride out the downturn soon."
Sooooper Najib tells Malaysian companies not to worry about the economic situation in the United Arab Emirates as it will ride out the downturn soon.
Wah!!! Damn terror right? I wonder if the Dubai flers and the flers they owe money to, share Sooooper Najib's optimism? Or does Sooooper Najib have the power to see into the future that only works when he's outside Malaysia?
Okay, okay to be fair Najib did say something nice while he was in the UAE. He said, "We can't be inward-looking, we can't be petty, and we can't be envious of one another......if we don't change the attitude and the mindset of Malaysians, we'll never be a 21st century nation."
Wah!!! Najib if you really mean what you said then come back quick. We and YOU have a lot of work to do. Oh by the way, was that off-the-cuff and from the heart or did the speech machine write that for you?
Sooooper Najib is now in India. Watch out for more sooooper feats from our Sooooper PM.
