Penang CM Lim Guan Eng said PM Najib is better than his predecessor Abdullah Badawi. I say NO.
Not when the PM was trying to hard (again) to justify his party's choice of a tainted former leader, Isa Samad.
Defending Barisan Nasional's decision to field Isa Samad for the Bagan Pinang state by-election, Najib said the former has already paid his dues.
Ex-MCA leader Chua Soi Lek would readily welcome Najib's statement. Why not? Most of BN component parties will soon be led by expired, tainted or immoral personalities.
Who said Malaysia is a dull, boring and conservative Muslim majority country? We go after beer sales, beer drinking models and other menial and petty things just to show how holy we are? But let the bigger issues go unchecked?
Is Dr Ridhuan Tee going to speak up against the candidacy of Isa Samad? Can he give us a lecture on how unIslamic it is?
Najib added: "The question here is whether he deserved a second chance or not."
"In our system, even a criminal gets a second chance and can contest the post after serving his or her punishment."
He should have told Nordin Mat Top this before the latter was killed by the Indonesian military offensive. Yeah, as long as Nordin repented he too can be made a state assemblyman or a member of parliament.
Najib's hypocrisy should have been extended to ex-CPM members such as Chin Peng too.
With such a twisted logic and sense of righteousness, what can we expect from Najib and his 1Malaysia slogan?
Nothing will be achieved too at the end of his tenure.
Malaysia may find itself lagging behind Vietnam soon. So, stop laughing at our poorer neighbours.
