I found a couple of funnies in The Sun this morning and thought I'd share them with you.
Fantastic fact #1
Home Minister, Hishamuddin says that he and Musa Hassan, the Inspector-General of Police are pals and that there is no rift. This after the now well-known IGP ding-dong that happened a couple of weeks ago.
IGP is quitting.
No!IGP is not quitting.
Okay, he is going to be replaced.
So things led to some rumours that maybe Hisham and the IGP had some sort of falling out. And today in The Sun Hisham says "No rift with IGP. No lah. There is no problem at all." Okay. But that's not the funny. Hisham went on to say that ......
"if the relationship between Musa and him was not close, there was no way the national security forces could reduce crime or move the National Key Results Area (NKRA) as planned".
That's when I went HUH???!!! What the fuck has that got to do with reducing crime and moving the NKRA?
Fantastic Fact #2
The MACC has decided to use the Internet in their public relations efforts. The Chief Commissioner said that this was to garner public cooperation for the MACC's efforts to eradicate corruption. Okay, that's not funny. Well, it is milding amusing to read that from the MACC actually. Anyway, what's funny is that the fler 'called upon' the public to acknowledge all the good work done by the MACC in the past year.
"We succeeded in solving high-profile cases, catching high-profile 'sharks'. Over the past four decades, the MACC has never had a record like we did last year. We caught 22 politicians and charged 14 of them. We have never caught that many high-profile individuals before.
"We also made history by solving 92.6% of the 586 investigation papers we began in a 6-month period," he said, pointing out that such achievements were "forgotten" by the public because of "one incident" - namely the death of political aide Teoh Beng Hock, whose inquest is still ongoing."
So what is the guy asking for? A pat on the back? That all of us should genuflect and give thanks just because they are doing the job that they are PAID to do? But this type of attitude is becoming so typically Malaysian isn't it? You pay someone to do a job and we're supposed to be so "grateful" that they are doing it?
