Phwaaar!!! This is really getting to beyond ridiculous levels la. As Malaysians I think we're getting quite used to being told to fuck off, emigrate, balik tongsan and whatnot for voicing our opinions about whatever. Mostly it's because we criticize the government or what it is doing that we don't agree with. But today I read in The Malaysian Insider that a Malaysian has been told by another Malaysian to fuck off out of the country for criticizing a newspaper!!! What else is next in this national circus? Story HERE
I read the report about Najib's interview with the BBC yesterday. Unless there's more "lost-in-translation" excuses there are a couple of things that amused and annoyed me at the same time.
Najib reportedly said, "You know, if you're in the opposition, it's quite easy for you to promise a number of things, and the promises swayed quite a number of voters.... the agenda of the opposition was not costed, they were populist, they were even irresponsible but that swayed a number of voters".
Huh? That about describes what you yourself did when you went around the country making your famous "you help me, I help you" promises. And you went one step further, okay la so it was your deputy who made the announcement, by saying that your government will help those who voted for you just a bit more than the others who didn't vote for you. Yes?
And this part will piss you (the readers) off. Najib said that his "Chinese tsunami" remark in the aftermath of the election was not an accusation but more of a statement over what had happened. And "....... I did say in the same statement that we must work towards national reconciliation and we must reduce racial polarisation in Malaysia". But you just had to mention that it was the Chinese flers who fucked you up issit? Great, Mr. Prime Minister-for-all-Malaysians. Oh was that you or somebody else? Sorry ah.
