We have a Pm who is practically being accused of big time embezzlement and all that he could do was to blame his enemies of attempting to topple him and the government he leads, instead of categorically denying that billions of Ringgit had been deposited into his personal bank accounts as claimed.
All that poor depressed Ah Jib would say was that he had never used any public funds for
his personal gain. Without denying that the named accounts were his or that no such sums of money had ever been deposited into them, how could he convince the public to believe that he is innocent and that all the claims were just scurrilous attempts to topple him?
What any person would do in the circumstance, let alone a sitting Pm, would be to put pay to the claim that huge sums of money had indeed been deposited into his accounts that should not have been there if it were categorically untrue.
But all we have is the Pm appealing to the public to disbelieve the expose and threatening action against anyone who he said were trying to topple him.
The most decent thing to do in the circumstance is for him to step aside and allow a truly independent investigation into the veracity of the WSJ and Sarawak Report expose.
Bolehlanders frankly cannot believe that with Ah Jib still sitting as the Pm, any investigation into the expose will be a truly independent one.
By insisting on his innocence without doing more in the face of the damning revelations, Ah Jib as the Pm and head of the government is doing a disfavour to the nation.
If the Pm is innocent as he insists, there is nothing for him to lose or be afraid of by his voluntarily stepping aside and allowing an independent investigation to be carried out on the expose.
Too much has been exposed on the dealings of 1MDB that it won't do for the government to just come out with bare denials without allowing a truly independent investigation into the dealings of the sovereign fund and the Pm's role as its head honco being carried out to get to the bottom of the truth.
As it is, Bolehland is heading towards economic uncertainty.
Exports are declining, the prices of our primary commodities are at a low and the value of the Ringgit is plummeting.
The cost of living is rising and Bolehlanders are suffering under the ONEROUS yoke of GST.
Our sovereign debt is hitting the sky. We, as a nation, is spending more than we can afford and living beyond our means.
Corruption and wastage of public funds aggravate the status quo.
Nobody cares about containing the damage corruption and wastage cost the nation annually, because the leadership themselves are suspect.
Because of weak leadership, and dangerous politics, voices of racial and religious intolerance are on the rise unchallenged and unchecked by the powers that be.
Bolehlanders now can't even be sure of the freedom to practise their faith without being told what is permissible like being told to take down the cross from a church building or the use of a certain name in their worship.
Now even government departments are not entertaining the public whom they consider to be 'indecently' dressed.
