Najib: BN not cause of ‘Barang Naik’January 12, 2014
He said the government is implementing transformation of the economy and the outcome will benefit the people.
“The government is always with the people. Don’t solely blame the government for the price hikes. When prices went up, the Barisan Nasional government was labelled as ‘Barang Naik.’
“When prices dropped, the government was not praised but when prices shot up, the government was condemned,” he said at a ceremony to present aid to floods victims and to thank volunteers, here today.
The Prime Minister said price hikes were caused by factors such as the global economy and extreme weather conditions that led to shortage of supply.
“Not all price hikes were caused by the government. The price of fish rose because of reduced catch by fishermen while the price of vegetables shot up due to lack of supply.”
Najib said the government is aware that the cost of living is rising and has taken various measures to reduce the burden of the people.
Aiyah! Woke up this morning and went to my favorite media Free Malaysia Today (FMT lah!) and saw the above news item.
I see that our Najib is now acknowledging that he is aware that for the rakyat, BN now stands for 'BARANG NAIK". It is one thing for you and me, ordinary mortals, to sembang at the mamak stall over roti canai and joke amongst ourselves about these kind of things ....but come on lah.......the Prime Minister of Malaysia acknowledging that his party is being ridicule in such a manner? Does it not give mileage to that ridicule. By this morning all of Malaysia knows that BN stands for 'BARANG NAIK'. If that is not stupidity that what is it?
And of course he cannot resist saying this: "The government is always with the people".
Okay here is news for you Najib....your government can continue to be with the people but this is a one sided affair. We the people want out! Go find someone else to be with! Or better still go play with yourself!
How simple minded is this guy? He wants to give us a lesson in economics and tells us:
“Not all price hikes were caused by the government. The price of fish rose because of reduced catch by fishermen while the price of vegetables shot up due to lack of supply.”Let me ask Najib what the taxi driver or that Mak Chik who goes to the pasar to get the fish and the vegetables wants to ask him : "Woi Najib...why you need so many advisors and consultant to tell you about the price of fish and vegetable? And one government jet trip to Dubai can buy so many kilos of fish and vegetables to give to the deserving poor...betul tak?"
Dear God why do you test us so much by sending this Najib and Rosmah to us? Send us locusts and send us floods and we can deal with them....but these two has been a burden to us for so many years. Please God tests us in other ways!
And by the way I know what BN really stands for but good manners makes me hesitate to do say so here....you know and I know enough lah!
