There is a utensil that we call the kettle. And there is the utensil we call the pot.
There is the saying "The kettle calling the pot black"
Why these fellows would call each other black when they all seem the same, is hard to fathom.
Like how Ah Jib , instead of answering questions that many Bolehlanders are asking about the scandal that 1MDB has become, is asking Mahathir about the financial scandals that took place
under the former Pm's watch?
When nobody is taking responsibility, the losers are the long suffering ordinary Bolehlanders.
They are the ones who have to bear the consequences of any financial shenanigans.
They are the ones who have to suffer the rising costs of living and be further yoked with the GST hitting their already limited pockets come April.
Not the rich and well-off, the politically connected and the privileged circle of power barons.
However one looks at it, Ah Jib as the head of the sovereign fund cannot escape from being answerable for 1MDB
It will not do to just pass the buck by claiming ignorance of what is happening on the ground and shifting the burden and blame onto others.
Of course, two wrongs do not a right make.
If Ah Jib as the current Pm and head of 1MDB is serious, he should be responsible for explaining what really has happened to the sovereign fund and why it is said to have incurred a huge debt of some 40 billion Ringgit in just five years that the fund had been established and why it is said to have to resort to borrowing 2 billion Ringgit from a private company just to service its debts and is still needing government intervention.
And of course, to start investigations into the financial scandals that Ah Jib himself is asking Mahathir to explain.
Bolehland cannot afford expensive failures and indiscretions that threaten the economic and financial welfare of the country that will choke the lives out of the ordinary rakyat
