Some sound advice, hopefully it is still not too late

At long last, we have an UMNO veteran who is bold and farsighted enough to provide some sound advice to us all which I hope is still not too late for the people in general and the politicians in particular to change for the betterment of all in this country.

The following are extracts( in red) from Tengku Razaleigh's speech during the 4th Malaysian Student leaders Summit and my comments in blue:
The outspoken Umno veteran said that people must rid itself of racial politics if the country was serious in 1 Malaysia.
“So let us take 1 Malaysia seriously, and convert Barisan Nasional into a party open to all citizens. Let it be a multiracial party open to direct membership.
“PR will be forced to do the same or be left behind the times. Then we shall have the vehicles for a two party, non-race-based system,” the Gua Musang MP said during the 4th Annual Malaysian Student Leaders Summit here.
Well Tengku, since the post 3/08 political tsunami, the people have been hoping and praying for this two party system to take shape. Unfortunately, with so much of cynical politicking since then, it did not happen.
Tengku Razaleigh, affectionately known as Ku Li, pointed that racial politics has turned Malaysia into a sick country.

The politics in this country have not only make us sick but also the laughing stock of the world. But then, with such a propagandist like this, where do you think we will be heading?

The Kelantan prince said that the Najib administration must implement policies reflective of 1 Malaysia.

I tell you, this overused 1Malaysia thing is really making us equally sick. How can you promote this concept when there are two sets of laws:one for the ordinary and one for those in power?

“Our inability to grow up in our race relations is the chief reason why investors, and we ourselves, no longer have confidence in our economy. The reasons why we are behind Maldives in football, and behind the Philippines in FDI, are linked,” Tengku Razaleigh said.

“It’s not conservative or liberal to ask for an end to having politics, economic policy, education policy and everything and the kitchen sink determined by race. It’s called growing up,” he said.

We all know the reasons why we are always catching up with our neighbors: from rampant corruptions to an unfavorable education system and from flip-flop policies to dirty politics. And aren't we ready for change?

Tengku Razaleigh said that both BN and Pakatan Rakyat (PR) are responsible to ensure the country progress from communalism and race politics.

No Tengku, you are wrong. It is UMNO that is responsible to ensure that we stay away from racial politics because the reasons why we are in this shit point to UMNO. Thus UMNO, after having poison the minds of the Malays for more than 50 years, must now provide the antidote for the Malays to wake-up and embrace equality and fairness so that we can all walk tall together and be proud to call ourselves, Malaysians.

Plunge, plunging ...............plunged

OK folks, figures are out!

FDIs are declining and investors are shunning this country, which means the rice bowl of the people will be greatly affected.

And yet everyday, we read of the political goons and idiots talking about race and nothing else but race politics. If that is what they are good at, then let them do it. Let them irritate and enrage the people more. Let them demonstrate their idiotic mentality and stupidity for the world to see. Most probably, the investors have already seen it.

As for Pakatan Rakyat, it must seize this opportunity to highlight and let the people know that the economy of the country is plunging into the drain. It must attack the UMNO/BN led government on all fronts relentlessly and make them answerable to the people.

Because the rice bowl of the people is more important, PR must not be trapped into race politics set by those idiots. PR must shows its abilities to govern and bring much developments in the states that are under its control. It must stay focus to provide enough rice bowls for the people, not break them.

As for those racist political goons, let the people take care of them through the ballot box.

The fear mentality

It is indeed sad to see the need of the PM to pacify the UMNO delegates not to fear Singapore investments which the government is trying hard to attract into the Iskandar project.

In the first place, why must the PM pacify them? If they are indeed scared of the Singapore investments, will the government flip-flop again on its agreement?

Secondly, is the mentality of the UMNO delegates so shallow that they are not able to distinguish between what is good and bad for the country's economy?

Thirdly, why must there be a special fear for the Singapore investments only? Why not the other investments that are from other countries?

If the PM is sincere in removing the fear mentality in UMNO, then he must remove all the 'crutches' that have been supporting them for so many years so that they can 'walk' freely, willingly and eventually with the head held high. And in order to achieve this, he must fear no one. So Mr.PM, when all your predecessors have failed, can you succeed?

As it is now, it looks so pathetic for the PM to keep wanting to pacify the UMNO delegates.
