Poll: Which Phrase Best Described Your Prime Minister

By Richard Loh

Your present unelected Prime Minister has hold office for 18 months now. You have seen his performances within and out of the country. He had met up with the world most powerful man, President Obama of the United States Of America.

He even gave a speech at the United Nation, spreading his wise wisdom on Islam, racism and terrorism. He had travelled to most part of the world, from Japan, China to the US and Europe, each time telling us how he was well received by world leaders and how Malaysia is now recognised as a good example for others to follow.

Back home his speeches and inaction’s to wide spread racism and religious intolerance contradicted his overseas presentations to world leaders.

He had spoken about press freedom but journalists, writers, cartoonist (arrested) are being called in by the police for questioning and at the same time, party newspapers, books and cartoon are banned.

He talked to the mca Chinese telling them that they are Malaysians and not pendatang while at umno gatherings he talk about malay supremacy by asking such questions:

“I want to ask who were the ones who questioned Article 153 in the Constitution? Malay privileges; who questioned them?

Who caused the incident of not offering prayers for the well-being of the king? Who wanted Universiti Teknologi Mara to be opened to the non-Malays. Not Umno, but the other side,” he said.

After 54 years of umno/bn rule, the only deed he can claimed was “the government had exempted about one million households from paying their electricity bill of RM20 and below”. What other good deeds that umno/bn government had done that he cannot recalled but just that electricity bill. All his speeches were prepared ahead of time and I supposed they can provide more examples of umno/bn good deeds but failed.

What is so telling about his latest budget? Its ‘neither here nor there’ as described by Dr. Hsu at his forum blog. The budget claimed to be people oriented but do you feel or expect to benefit from this budget or rather an election budget whereby you are given 10 ringgit now but you will have to pay back 100 ringgit after the general election?
