|Umno Flag Image From Wikipedia|
It is long past time to disabuse Umno of their perverted sense of self-importance and entitlement.
It is the duty of the government, any government, to look after the welfare of its people and to do what is expected of it to this end.
It is Umno and the government who should be grateful to the people for the honour and privilege granted to them to do right by the people.
It is not the people who should be grateful to Umno and the government.
Umno should be reminded that no government in the world owns anything in its own right or name that does not belong to the people, including the nation's natural resources.
The government is the mere custodian of the nation's wealth and it bloody well not fail the people.
Unfortunately here in Malaysia, nobody knows what exactly happens to the oil revenues that make up some 40% of the nation's annual GDP because only the Pm knows. Even Parliament has not control or any idea as to what happens to Petronas's (read, the nation's) money.
But the average Malaysian can well guess that a lot of that goes to feed the avaricious egos and greed of the ruling elites and their coterie of cronies, while a small portion trickles down to the hoi polloi as "subsidies" that (again) we are constantly reminded of to be grateful for.
It is long past time, that the people remind Umno that we will take away from them the mandate to govern in the coming 13th general election and that it is Umno and the government who should be grateful to the people, not the other way around.
