Najib And His Administration: A Crippled Horse?

Would it be far off to say that the government Ah Jib heads is a broken administration today?

The Pm's back is against the wall, with 1MDB pressing in on him and threatening to become the albatross around the nation's neck and dragging Bolehland to its knees.

No one is taking responsibility for the scandal that the sovereign fund has become. All Bolehlanders are hearing are answers that raise more questions than they are supposed to

clarify.

Already often indecisive and flippy floppy, Ah Jib seems more concerned with form than substance. But even his expensive plethora of advisers and spin masters are unable to dress him up to look good.

Ergo, what was supposed to have been a nothing to hide dialogue with NGOs that was supposed to be just the right platform for him to silence his critics on 1MDB and take the sails out of Mahathir, turned out to be anything but a Bugis warrior show when the Pm chickened out at the penultimate moment behind the skirt of security concern.

A concern, or skirt, that nobody worth his salt gave any credence to or respect for, the IGP notwithstanding.

Ah Jib's Cabinet appears not just half past six as per the great man Mahathir himself (Ah Jib's one time mentor and current bete noire) but also seems to be populated by ministers who often shoot from the mouth and care not a hoot about what happens but only whether they are seen or heard to curry favour the boss to stay in power.

We even have an Einstein in the Cabinet, the Maslan guy whose love for GST borders on the pathological. This genius  maintains that GST is a god-send because it helps to reduce the prices of goods and services and makes life a happy one for Bolehlanders

He is better off for Bolehland and Bolehlanders if he set up a home-cooked GST-free nasi goreng stall.

As it is now, Maslan and the rest of the unthinking and zombie members of Ah Jib's Cabinet just turn our stomachs.

A crippled horse ought to be put to pasture.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
