I chose this pix because Najib looks so resolute in his steering of a floundering ship. Or is that a look of "What's for lunch?"
When I read the headline in The Star today I couldn't help feeling that there was a Niamah!!! moment in there. Judge for yourself....
Najib calls on Malaysian companies to be globally competitive
Words of great wisdom from the prime minister? Well....at first it was quite wise la. Then when I read further I realised that it was just political tokkok again la. Najib was lauding the achievements of a ship-building company which he said "had made 'waves' in the international arena on their own without depending on big contracts from the Government."
According to The Star story, "The Prime Minister stressed on the importance of building one's capabilities to be globally competitive as the country strived towards developed status."
PHWAAAAAAAAAAR!!! Damn good, right?
Then he said, "Success cannot be attained if we continue to rely on quota or privileges from the Government."
Then what about the NEP the NEM? And what about Perkasa and all the other flers calling for continuance of quotas and special privileges? Oh, that one different issit?
