(I seriously think that Najib Razak should consider a change of careers)
Prime Minister, Najib Razak was on radio yesterday. On a Chinese radio station no less!!! I didn't hear the broadcast but did read that he started his session in Chinese when he uttered Chuo San (Good Morning in Cantonese). Phwaar! And as would happen in these cases, the PM's stint on radio generated pages and pages of stories in the local MSM newspapers. Which is great because these stories provide us with our dose of weekend comedy.
Government willing to preserve shops as heritage buildings in Jalan Sultan .
......was the headline in one of the stories today. Now, if I am one of the owners or business operators in Jalan Sultan I would be pissed off about this. If the blaardy government is so willing to preserve those historic heritage buildings why didn't it come out and say so right at the beginning of the whole hoo-hah? Protests la. Demonstrations la. Threats. Then now say willing and want to preserve issit? Why? Elections coming issit? The Chinese baargers need some baiting issit? Damn farnieee la.
This next headline can be funny or tragic or ironic depending on how you look at it.
"No Lynas if it is harmful, PM assures the people"
My first reaction when I read that headline was, "Phwaar! No shit Sherlock! How did you deduce that?"
People from Pahang and indeed all over the country have been protesting against Lynas and now the prime minister comes out to say that IF it is harmful then Lynas will not be allowed to operate? He thinks Malaysians are moronic or what? But there is more. As if to rub some more salt in the wound, the PM continued and said...wait for it....
Those who are against Lynas should have a dialogue with us. We need to know what the technical arguments are against Lynas.
WHAT???!!! The elected government of the people is asking US to tell them what the technical arguments are??? They approved the project, didn't they? Didn't they check the technical arguments first???
Aiyoh, Mr. Najib you really should consider a career in stand-up comedy la. I think you would do much better on stage than in parliament la.
If you're a Malaysian of Chinese origin you should find this next funny quite UN-funny. Read the headline...
Najib: Govt. serious about solving shortage in Chinese vernacular schools
The PM announced that the government was serious about solving the long-standing problem of the lack of Mandarin teachers in Chinese vernacular schools.
What? After more than 50 years of the same government only now want to be serious ah? Why ah? Elections coming ah? Chinese flers need more baiting ah?
Have a great weekend, people. But don't laugh too much okay.
