The World Anthem




by lousy yat, donplaypuks® intrepid correspondent for rci affairs

In my last blog post, I had lambasted YB Lim Kit Siang, DAP Head, for his really, really immature, low-level IQ thinking, pathetic and hare-brained recommendation that Mahathir, Badawi and Musa Hitam should head a RCI (Royal Commission  of Inquiry) to look into malfeasance and fraud at 1MDB and its $46 billion debt, and $2.6 billion and $2 million of unexplained moneys banked into the personal bank accounts of Prime Minister Najib and his wife Rosmah Mansor, respectively. CLICK HERE FOR THAT BLOG POST TITLED 'HAS YB LIM KIT SIANG FINALLY FLIPPED HIS FLIPPIN' WIG?'.

Hardly had the ink dried on that blog post, before Kit Siang followed one cuckoo suggestion with an even more bizarre and queer outcry for the likes of the following to head a RCI into the Low Yat Plaza incident (For the Low Yat Plaza incident CLICK HERE.):

1. Rafidah Aziz, ex-Minister for International Trade & Industry ("Ideal as Chairperson").
2. Abu Talib Othman, ex-Attorney General.
3. Ramon Navaratnam, ex-Secretary General of the Ministry of Transport.
4. Rais Yatim, ex-Minister for Information, Communications & Culture.  

The list also included:

1. Ambiga Sreenivasab, ex-Bersih head.
2. Pak Samad, Poet Laureate.
3. Mohammad Asri, Perlis Mufti.

The first suggestion involving Mahathir, Bawadi and Musa Hitam is as lame-brained as they come. Kit Siang seems to have given no thought to the idiom that there's no free lunch. What price will Mahathir especially exact for this "selfless act" of  "national service"? 

$2 billion to bailout Proton now owned by the DRB Group, and to which he is an "advisor'? 

Revival of the $1.1 billion 'Crooked Bridge Over Troubled JB Waters' which, given that it's been over 10 years since Badawi refused to sanction Mahathir and his cronie's pet project and they settled for $700 million in compensation, will now cost $3 billion, guaranteed to be inflated beyond the Zeppelin, Hindenburg? And set off a war with Singapore, since the lion city did not approve it even in 2003?

Shut off the pipes in JB and force Singapore to re-negotiate the ridiculously low water tariffs agreed to by Mahathir himself in the first place? And set off a war with Singapore?

Cancel the Tanjung Pagar Railway Land and $40 billion High Speed Train joint venture development projects with the government of Singapore?

Build a $1 billion white elephant airport in Alor Setar for $3 billion?

What is the pound of flesh that Mahathir will excise from our public coffers to deliver Najib's head on a platter to the Rakyat? 

It's incredible that Kit Siang has not sat back and thought through this insane proposal. All it would do is flip a pummelled Malaysia from the frying pan into the fire! Even worse, the evil of BUMNO/SCUMNO Baru will continue to thrive and expand, should the keys to the nation be handed once again to Mahathir. After all, Mahathir is the architect of the mess we face, from endemic corruption to failed race-relations, education, welfare, financial, management and and economic systems.

As to Kit Siang's line up for a Low Yat Plaza RCI, I wholeheartedly agree that Ambiga and Pak Samad could be there. The Perlis Mufti is certainly acceptable, except, I don't trust any religious leader, even though Asri has been unequivocally making all the right noises!

But when we come to Rafidah, Abu Talib, Rais Yatim and Ramon Navaratnam, I think Kit Siang has really lost his marbles! Every one of them was there when Mahathir was running riot in Malaysia for 23 years. None of them had the foresight to see how an overdose of affirmative action, skewed economics and paradigm shafting could poison a tropical paradise, and bring it to the brink of chaos. None of them had the balls to stand up to the "benevolent self-appointed dictator". Even when they tried to topple Mahathir and lost, they did not have the courage of their conviction to continue opposing him, but accepted government largesse and Ministerial posts, and continued to support a broken system, to the detriment and interest of the Rakyat!

What were they doing when BTN was poisoning the minds of the Malays and civil servants? Did a single one of them question Mahathir and take him to task for the $30 billion Bank Negara forex loss, or the hundreds of billions of (ringgit) losses generated by the Asian Currency Crisis, brought on primarily by Mahathir's mismanagement of the economy, while he shifted blame and attention to Uncle Sam, mysterious Zionist conspiracies and George Soros? 

Who are those who have vast unexplained, undeclared and illegal wealth, accumulated while the Rakyat suffered and became impoverished?

Rais Yatim, who went so far as to tell off the USA about why the ISA was necessary, had written much earlier in his PhD dissertation that:

"The ISA does not speak well for the future of the rule of law in Malaysia. In fact, it is the main adversary of the rule of law. The abolition of the ISA is imperative".

What should we make of such men whose moral compass goes askew when changing hats? Doesn't Kit Siang know why Rais was dropped from Najib's line-up for GE 2013? The rumours that swirled of  a scandal that was Rais's downfall? What about Rafidah and the brouhaha over the massive (billions of ringgit l) AP scandal and 4-AP Kings, run-in with Mahathir and alleged diversion of Bumiputra tranche shares amidst conflict of interest accusations? All false?

It's frightening to observe that Kit Siang thinks that the moral and ethical aspects of Ministers and civil servants padding their nests while in office, should be ignored in assessing their capabilities and achievements; we only need to see if they will be acceptable to some Malays in opposing Najib.

This is absurd! How after all these years of toil and struggle, can Kit Siang lower his standards, and come up with these asinine calls and plans? Is the pressure of the job, the struggle and age getting to him?

YB Lim Kit Siang, Leader of DAP, our hour is at hand. Victory is within sight. We may not get another chance like this for the Opposition to unseat the monster that is our government of thieves, looters, plunderes, and rid the nation of the scourge of corruption, racism and religious bigotry.

Did not Shakespeare say through Brutus in 'Julius Caesar':

" There is a tide in the affairs of men, 
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; 

And if you misread the signs and take the wrong course of action, or back and champion the wrong men and women, then:

"Omitted, all the voyage of their life,
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures." 

YB Lim KIt Siang, do not screw up now. Not at this scintillatingly starred moment when all the signs in the heavens are in our favour.

Wake up and take good counsel. Forget about Mahathir, Badawi, Musa Hitam, Rafidah Aziz, Abu Talib, Rais Yatim, Ramon et al and anyone from BUMNO/SCUMNO Baru or its associated government who, by their silence and association, are not worthy of our respect or support.

Look towards people like Justice Hishamuddin, Justice Aidid, Ambiga, Pak Samad and the like who stand head and shoulders above the treacherous men and women who gave birth to and perpetuated a government of liars, thieves, traitors and Taliban!

 Donplaypuks® with the tide which is in our favour, man!

One thing I have observed lately,is that Kit Siang is coming up with more and more bizarre ideas.Ideas that makes no sense.Maybe Dyana Sofya needs to tighten the reins of this old warhorse.
