This is normal human behaviour, otherwise people may think that there is basis to the accusation.
So, Najib's silence in the face of Deepak's various revelations against him and his family is eerie!
What is even more puzzling is that his ministers are not trying to
Usually, whenever there is the slightest hint of a scandal involving their boss, Barsian, and especially Umno, ministers will come out in droves to try to outdo each other in defending their hero.
This is not done so much as to defend truth against perfidy, as to be noticed as to who is the loudest in defending their beleaguered leader and to hopefully cement and secure further their position in party and pantry.
But what usually comes out is one minister parroting what the other minister has said.
This parrot culture started and took hold during Mahathir's tenure. Today, parrots are not only to be found in the pet shops but also in the corroding corridors of power.
Strangely, this time around, the parrots are all silent. Not even a single solitary squeak (or it it squawk?) to be heard. I do hope that this is the end of the parrot culture in Barisan politics.
But I think I do hope in vain. Today's ministerial silence may just be the un-normal exception. For whatever reason or reasons.
Najib cannot just bury his
We cannot do the same for Najib, for he is a not a bird the last time I checked.
Or is he?
Malaysians may have a short memory, but the international business community is watching.
We cannot have a prime minister who carries with him such a weighted baggage, whose weight and content are not explained.
