Aisehman Dr M
saya malu bila I see those headlines today. Macham there is nothing wrong in our
country that you have to go and throw rocks at other people houses. It does not
make sense to me why we need to worry about Singapore. Why? Malaysia is
perfect? I would not be telling you a lie if I were to tell you that 7
out of 10 people in Malaysia will react to those headlines with a shake of
their head and a comment bordering around “Tun ni dah nyanyok!”…"Tun is
getting senile these days.” The other 30% are the same people who think that Ketuanan Melayu means that the Malays can become Tuan in Malaysia just by voting in UMNO.
Tun you said
that Singapore gags citizen criticism. Now if you were talking at a close door
meeting with UMNO cawangan Hutan Melintang then I can understand that you
are just trying to impress the cawangan members with your knowledge of what
Singapore citizens can and cannot do – though I suspect that the same cawangan
members would rather hear about what the government is doing to support their
boat-building industry and improve tourism in their area!
And then you say that the
Singaporeans were required to “be nice in Singapore ” Dey Thambi…look at your
former Deputy DSAI - what happened
to him when you thought he was not being nice to you? Look at the personal
attacked you launched on Pak Lah when you thought he was not being nice to you? And remember Ops Lallang? Alahai Thambi tolong kaji diri sendiri sikit! I sure
would like to see what you and the other UMNO leaders will do if Lee Kuan Yew
were to say the “Ketuanan Melayu” is a racist policy? We will have the whole
bunch in the Malaysian Cabinet jumping around like a Gorilla on heat demanding that
Singapore do not interfere with the affairs of Malaysia.
But Singapore do things– they do not just say. How long do you think Genting will last with another
casino in Singapore? Thank God Genting diversified into other things for they
know that sooner or later their golden goose will stop laying its golden eggs. And they have the F1 Grand Prix in Singapore now - and seeing it I know that they are better organize and the world would prefer to go to Singapore then Sepang! By any standards you care to use, Singapore are ahead of Malaysia. Their
transport system is better then ours. Their education is better then ours. Heck
their government Minister are better then ours – though you can make the
argument that our Ministers are better then Singapore in at least one thing–corruption. The same with our Police, our government servants, our politicians…need I go
on? By any level of excellence
Singapore leaves Malaysia behind. And yet you chose to make the observation that Singapore gags it's citizens. For sure they do. I know that and the world knows that. But why chose to go there? Why not talk about corruption, about cleanliness, about their ability to excel when they do not have what Malaysia has? Our vast natural resources and population base for example.People are
giving you the same kind of look the Russians give to Putin every time he
claims that the Russian people are free to elect whoever they want to govern
You must be running out of things to talk about to bring attention to yourself. Cukuplah
Tun…quit while you are ahead. Quit before you are in the news for the wrong
reason…..like making comments on things that is really none of your business.
Stick to Ketuanan Melayu, focus on your favorite cause-Ibrahim Ali and Perkasa. And
you really need to work on getting that son of yours to get promoted to being a
full Minister….he cannot do it on his own steam. I know you have done all the hard work for him but that is what you get when your son is a
millionaire (no thanks to the people's money in bailing out his business interest!). He would prefer to go do the nice things in life rather then be in cabinet just so that he could protect your legacy! What legacy? Running the country into the ground with your mega projects is not a legacy. Causing great racial divisions within the various races in Malaysia is not a legacy.
And talking about the internal affairs of another country is certainly not a legacy to leave behind. The only legacy that people will talk about in the years to come are the legacies of ruins and debts you left behind after your years as Prime Minister.
