They say Najib went begging to China to save his own skin.
Well, that might be true because the grand larceny at the sovereign fund he heads, with no resolution in sight and no one wanting to own up and take responsibility for the billions squirrelled off, has make it increasingly difficult for the pm to justify himself staying on as the pm unless he could find a way out from the mess that has brought so much misery and international shame to Bolehland and that rendered the lives of the ordinary Bolehlander even more miserable.
By cosying up to China and making business deals involving multiple billion Ringgit 'soft loans' and multiple more billion Ringgit investments from the Mainland Chinese, perhaps Najib hopes that that will somewhat bring in funds to cover up the huge gaping financial holes that the 1MDB scandal has opened up and maybe also 'find' some funds to power the coming general election because the 'Arabs' might not be so generous with their fairy tale donation this time around?
We don't know for sure if what the people are saying about the pm is true or not, but what Bolehlanders are angry about the cosying up to China is the blatant sale of pieces of strategic industries and prime land to China.
Actually, opening up to Chinese investments is not a bad thing. China has the cash and the means that, if properly tapped into, should benefit us economically.
The fear is whether the country has honest leaders who can be trusted to do their jobs or if there are there just to line their own pockets and save their own skins at the expense of the rakyat.
You can't stop the Chinese economic juggernaut from marching on. You either become part of its march or you get left behind. Even the Philippines now recognises that they need China more than they needed America.
