Idris Jala in his report failed to mention about corruption in the government. All he did was to explain plain economics. We want the realpolitik stuff. To begin with, if Ibrahim Ali so loves the Malays, he can start by donating his wealth to a "Tabung Melayu". That Toyo fella can auction off his RM24m mansion and donate it to the same fund. Mahathir another hard core "Malay", can start by selling off his Country Heights home and donate it to the fund. What about his son, Muhkriz? The "self made" billionaire. All UMNO members from top to bottom, should follow suit. After all why take it out on the little men when they are trying to live from hand to mouth? So what do you say, UMNO? Don't you think its time to do your bit for your race? With all the money collected from the donations which I believe will be in the billions, the nation can ride the tide come 2019.
Here is an interesting article by blogger Hakim Joe, which I would like to re-produce here.
The government is telling me that the country will be bankrupt in 9 years unless subsidies are slashed. Does this mean that there will be no more favoring the Bumiputeras as well? No more wasteful projects and no more bailouts?
