Najib and the figure '1'

Ever wondered why Najib kept on postponing the GE13 date?  Maybe, it has something to do with a number and this number is undoubtedly giving him endless sleepless nights.  No it is not the number '13' and neither is it '666' but a number so insignifcant to him [and the rest in UMNO] has of late, become a number he cannot afford to ignore.  Hence, he is too darn scared to call for the GE now despite all the so called confidence he has been showing to the rakyat of late.  In early May this year, during an UMNO rally, he even proudly said he felt like calling on the King then to dissolve Parliament.  Well, it is almost 6 months now, and we are still waiting for him to call on the King.

The number, my friends, is '1'.  Yes, '1' and to sum it up, here's an extract from an article in the Star Online in which I have taken the liberty to reproduce it here.

"A party or an alliance of parties standing as one group (e.g. the Labour party in Britain or the Barisan Nasional in Malaysia) may win an outright majority. This means that the party or group of parties has won more than 50% of all seats in parliament, which is at least 326/650 in Britain or 112/222 in Malaysia."

So, all it takes is for UMNO to lose by 1 seat, just a one seat difference and that would be enough for Pakatan to form the next government with a simple majority and UMNO will, as they would aptly put it, be in the 'shithouse'.  All the cards will come crumbling down and all the wrongs that UMNO has done will now be subject to scrutiny, review and investigations.  That sure doesn't look very promising for Najib and gang.

Anyway, after the new government has been formed, first order of the day will be for Pakatan to set up special committees to look into all corruption cases involving all the top leaders of the BN, and we do not need to  figure out the who's who will making frequent visits to the court houses all over the country.  Next, will be the judiciary, Election Commission and MACC which will undergo a total overhaul.  At this point, it will be nice to see Ambiga heading the EC for a change.

UMNO may try to cause social unrest via its agents like PERKASA, PERKIDA, etc but if Pakatan has what it takes to run country fairly and honestly for the next five years, UMNO is finished for good, cosigned to dustbin of history.

So, it is written and so it shall be.  Let it be '1'.

The NFC tale, and what a tale!

Just when you think it’s safe to read what is happening in Malaysia, you get a spin of the National Feedlot Centre (NFC) saga.

In her defamation suit against several PKR leaders, Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil had her day in court yesterday to give her side of the story.

And what a tale it was, or a yarn as the case may be.

But the facts are simple when it comes to the NFC. Taxpayers lost RM250 million and public funds were used for the purchase of condominiums and whatever else.

Some Umno leaders might have defended her family’s use of public funds but it remains indefensible. And troubling that they can’t differentiate right from wrong.

But what is amazing is that after all the information in public domain that began with the Auditor-General’s Report last year, Shahrizat still stuck to her own narrative of events.

She argued that Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had called for her head because they were influenced by the opposition.

Really, Datuk Seri, really?

By this line of thinking, did Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak ask her to step down because he too was influenced by the opposition?

Maybe it’s true that politicians live in their own cocoon or are blinkered to think everything is hunky-dory and whatever they do is good for the rakyat.

But the NFC wasn’t good for the rakyat in the end. And it isn’t because the PKR leaders brought it up. The Auditor-General blew the whistle on your family, as simple as that, not the opposition.

You can believe your story but there are Malaysians out there who know the difference and can spot the travesty of the NFC saga.

If might have taken him some time, but I commend Najib for taking action on this embarrassing episode for his government.

shampoo?" He answers, "Yes, but I'm not sure what to do... it's for dry
hair, and I've just wet mine."

A blond man spies a letter lying on his doormat. It says on the

A blonde man's dog goes missing and he is frantic. His wife says "Why
don't you put an ad in the paper?" He does, but two weeks later the dog
is still missing. "What did you put in the paper?" his wife asks. "Here
boy!" he replies.

A blond man is in jail. Guard looks in his cell and sees him
