From Padedoh to Kluk Klek


First of all, it is not my attention to be considered as anti-KJ or anti-Khairy as I prefer to stand on neutral ground. The original title is supposed to be “What’s up Doc?”, which touches the idea of this posting – naming and mocking others. Perhaps this should be any anti-KJ’s or anti-Khairy piece, be it from Piggy Singh, Mantra or any other anti-KJ that I know of, but what I’m trying to write here is in way larger scope – not just Khairy or KJ, but involves people surrounds him and some portion of blog commentators.

“Padedoh” and “Kluk Klek” are the slogans for campaigns which supposed to be one of the factors for BN to win in GE and recent by-election in KT. Unfortunately, both campaigns were directed towards PAS and both BN lose big time. I do not remember how does this name mocking started within BN camp in recent years. In such previous campaigns, I can recall such name mocking and harsh words were to come from the opposition, but since when BN falls to the same level, which in the same time, PAS rise to BN’s former level – by not name mocking the other party? How does this behaviour started in BN generally and UMNO specifically? Since when mocking “virus” become a culture of BN and UMNO?

I remember of commenting this in Doc Sid’s postings whereby I said:

 “It seems this ‘name’ issue has been far too long and by far “insults” the intelligence of readers.

It is undeniably true, by using “Doc” kind of degrading the real doctors, but do bear in mind, some of you are using names that might represents at least yourself and some well known person.

I’m not siding anyone, yet I’m giivng this comment for all of us to think. Two main character that I would like us to see and analyse:

Doc Sid – by far thru his “about” column has proven that he isn’t a doc YET, but maybe someday he will. Maybe, in this very article shows some flaws, but I see some rather attack the individual who wrote it than attacking the issue being brought up. If he isn’t doing well in this article, I suppose other readers should present more credible arguments rather than finding faults.

As for Wenger J Khairy – do you realise that you are carrying Arsene Wenger’s name yet some argument brought by you are not showing you are worth to use “Wenger”? Arsene Wenger doesn’t do what you did – laughing at people and provoking in a very unprofessional way. He doesn’t laugh at what other people are doing publicly.

I just touched on “Wenger”, not at Khairy yet, as I believe by your act, you can bring more harm than good to Khairy if you cannot give good arguments.

Perhaps, the Mr Ketam here isn’t very “ketam” as I believe Ketam/ crab cannot talk in human language. And Piggy Singh isn’t “haram” as he is a muslim.

Sorry Doc, I believe arguments should be more on the issue rather than attacking the person directly. By attacking the person directly do show me something (which I want to share my view) – the attacker is lack of idea of good arguments.

If do, please provide for us to ponder and have a better view on the issue. And of course, supported with logical argument.”

Now, the patern here is name mocking by blogger to a blogger and the political campaign slogan also name mocking. In blogs, some mocks other people’s name or pseudonym. For political campaign, mocking other political party. Is this good for development? Is this going to be our lifestyle? If then, where’s our “adab ketimuran” which is known for “sopan santun” and “budi bahasa”?

For quite some time ago, PAS labelled UMNO as “kafir”, which, I don’t agree. And yet, based on the same principle,  I don’t agree with UMNO mocking PAS by the campaign slogan “Padedoh” and “Kluk Klek”. Is this the idea from someone who graduated from Oxford? If do, I guess after this, if this kind of value and attitude being shown, might better we send our children to somewhere else where they also can learn manners.

And for some reason, I don’t understand some of these guys. Wenger J Khairy mentioned in his very article that:
  1. SIL actually helped the BN cause by meeting up with many different voters and coming up with Pas Kluk Klek campaign slogan. You can see more pictures of him at Bro Jinggo’s Pro Khairy website. I’m sure you know the directions there.
  2. There is 0 basis for blaming SIL. SIL was not in charge, Dato’ Seri Najib was in charge, and he worked his socks off. He literally camped there and oversaw a strong effort to defend this seat. He also invented a ‘lucky draw’ system to award Government contracts – a first in the world,showcasing once again the Malaysia Bodoh, oh sorry Malaysia Boleh attitude.

Even in this two points, I found contradiction which I voiced in this very article:

Hmm..wow, you do indulge me the least with your point of views..so, “SIL actually helped the BN cause by meeting up with many different voters and coming up with Pas Kluk Klek campaign slogan”, and then you said “There is 0 basis for blaming SIL. SIL was not in charge, Dato’ Seri Najib was in charge, and he worked his socks off.”

All blame to Najib, is it? I wonder, if Najib is in charge, how does the SIL came out with title slogan, trying to mock PAS in KT? Najib cannot control SIL because he isn’t member of the family? Do remember, Wan Farid nomination was said to be BN’s decision, which means Pak Lah also involved. So, AGAIN, just Najib?

I see the patern when things went wrong. The same went when Malaysia went bad in football scene. When it was a victorious, it’s credited to KJ. When things gone wrong, for football it was Sultan Pahang’s fault.

Your postings previously hailed KJ as a great factor for BN to win in KT. So, with this just one posting, all are erased and blame to be put on Najib?

Hidup KJ, Blame Najib? Is that it?

I also can conclude that, in this very event, Najib is to be blamed for not firm in controlling Khairy. If so, I guess, when Najib is to be next PM, he can remove KJ from being a member of his management team. Is this the wish made by KJ supporters?

On the other hand, Sukj has written a piece that acknowledging the sickness in UMNO has benefited PAS in the KT by-election. If I may ask, what sickness and caused by whom? Signals and messages have been sent, and yet some tend not to see it clearly. Well, as commented in Padedoh, I see the patern of denial when things went wrong and tendency to blame others is high. I guess, sarcastically I can say that maybe this is one of the tricks and trades learnt from Oxford! (ODS Note: I also have some friends graduating from Oxford, yet their act is totally differs from KJ, and that’s why I say “sarcastically” so that some who does not understand or pretend not to understand use it as a punchline).

All in all, I hope the “virus” of mocking which clearly shows the mockers are out of idea, will not be a culture in our society.

Questions on the street – is UMNO still relevant?

Words on the street – Mockers are out of idea and thus by far, can’t deal with constructive positive ideas.

  1. My complete reply, whilst still nursing headache

    Q1: Hmm..wow, you do indulge me the least with your point of views..so, “SIL actually helped the BN cause by meeting up with many different voters and coming up with Pas Kluk Klek campaign slogan”, and then you said “There is 0 basis for blaming SIL. SIL was not in charge, Dato’ Seri Najib was in charge, and he worked his socks off.”

    Yes – a lot of there is a lot of pictures of KJ in http://www.prokhairy.com. He is seen to be involved in helping the campaign right from nomination day, to polling day – being involved in leading the Candidate Nomination march, meeting voters and exchanging silaturahim as well as bringing hamper for old people, and finally solid ceramah. So clearly amongst those intending to campaign for Ketua Pemuda, we must check the prestasi kerja, if there is fight Trengganu, you cannot be a part of it whilst staying in KL, correct?

    Q2 :All blame to Najib, is it? I wonder, if Najib is in charge, how does the SIL came out with title slogan, trying to mock PAS in KT? Najib cannot control SIL because he isn’t member of the family? Do remember, Wan Farid nomination was said to be BN’s decision, which means Pak Lah also involved. So, AGAIN, just Najib?

    KJ was just giving his frank view at a ceramah in Gelugor Raja. It was never meant to be an official slogan – official slogan was Cakna Rakyat, coined by the leadership. However, Cakna Rakyat was a total flop, and so once again whatever KJ said was 100x better, and people adopted it. It was so effective, easy to carry – a spot on message and right up to voting day, a lot of UMNO party workers whacked the opposition with it.
    This shows that Khary can create a unifying message – pity it was a bit late.

    As to the Wan Farid decision, yes he was a bit weak, but surely in 2004, a lot of weak candidates were elected due to the power of Pak Lah. And in 2008 a lot of weak opposition candidates such as Manikavasingam was elected due to the power of Pakatan philosophy. So this tests Najib’s power – if Najib cannot help elect a weak candidate, whats so great about him.

    Q3:I see the patern when things went wrong. The same went when Malaysia went bad in football scene. When it was a victorious, it’s credited to KJ. When things gone wrong, for football it was Sultan Pahang’s fault.

    Your postings previously hailed KJ as a great factor for BN to win in KT. So, with this just one posting, all are erased and blame to be put on Najib?

    Well actually I had 3 or more postings critcizing UMNO campaign in KT. But I changed my mind after observing how hard Khairy was working – and naively thought one mans effort could make up for complete strategic campaign blunders.

    Now I realize – KJ is good, he may even be of Ronaldo status, but 1 Ronaldo cannot win an election. It takes team effort, but all your team mates must be there. One team mate, supposed to play midifield (and got the most nomination for Ketua Pemuda seat) was missing. So UMNO was playing with 10 men and lost.

    Blame the guy who was missing, and the manager, don’t blame Ronaldo who scored 2 goals so that the final result is 2-4 and not 0-4.

    Q4: Hidup KJ, Blame Najib? Is that it?

    Lets say Wenger thought that Gallas would make a good captain. Fabregas (KJ of course) is very young but opted for older people instead. And lets say Gallas is a complete screw up. Do we blame Fabregas if Arsenal lose? No – we blame Gallas, we ask him to get lost, and we give the captain arm band to Fabregas, and we start to win again.

    Not all, but some of lifes complicated problems have a simple answers.

    ODS: Thank you for your kind reply. However, I would ask some chained question based on your kind reply.

    1- Sure did KJ in KT, and you admit to it. But what’s up with mocking slogans? One slogan for every by-election is it to determine Key Performace Indicator? If the slogan is just for UMNO, I think it is ok. Kind of a slogan to motivate oneself, but what’s the need for a slogan mocking PAS? Is it by mocking the other party will motivate UMNO supporters and add up trust from people to UMNO? UMNO hate to be called “kafir” by PAS, and now UMNO is doing the same. A child’s fight?

    2- “As to the Wan Farid decision, yes he was a bit weak, but surely in 2004, a lot of weak candidates were elected due to the power of Pak Lah. And in 2008 a lot of weak opposition candidates such as Manikavasingam was elected due to the power of Pakatan philosophy. So this tests Najib’s power – if Najib cannot help elect a weak candidate, whats so great about him.”

    Now, if Wan Farid is weak, why did Pak Lah and his cabinet approved this nomination? Najib’s fault? You are giving an analogy of football, but do you realize that even though Kevin Keegan was the manager of Newcastle, some of his players weren’t his choice. Is he to be blamed? Oh yeah, one more – current situation at Anfield. Rafa is in dispute with the management for not allowing to handle football decision. So, when Reds not performing due to his limited choice, is he to be blamed? The question is – for a decision made by cabinet lead by Pak Lah, Najib to be blamed?

    3- “Now I realize – KJ is good, he may even be of Ronaldo status, but 1 Ronaldo cannot win an election. It takes team effort, but all your team mates must be there. One team mate, supposed to play midifield (and got the most nomination for Ketua Pemuda seat) was missing. So UMNO was playing with 10 men and lost. “

    Yes, Najib is the head of campaign, but the nomination made by BN. And Najib would not survive if he is working alone. That’s why he had help from BN’s team, which is in line with your reply. And by admitting KJ was in KT to help and by your description of KJ’s greatness, I would say, he should be able to help Najib. If you say what’s great about Najib, then I’ll ask, what is great about KJ? Sarcastically I’d say, even to help Najib, KJ was powerless. Do Najib blocked KJ from doing his job? Do Najib banned him from using “Kluk Klek” tagline? Which means, in other words, KJ was free to do so. So, did KJ’s help benefited UMNO?

    One more thing is, even 10 men playing against 11 players, Aston Villa yet won against Sunderland 2-1 yesterday, despite trailing 1 goal and losing one player being red carded. Should not this be a lesson? And who are you referring to that 1 man not in the field?

    Anyway, thanks for dropping by and gave a polite response.

  2. Easy question lah.., heres my answer

    Q5- Sure did KJ in KT, and you admit to it. But what’s up with mocking slogans? One slogan for every by-election is it to determine Key Performace Indicator? If the slogan is just for UMNO, I think it is ok. Kind of a slogan to motivate oneself, but what’s the need for a slogan mocking PAS? Is it by mocking the other party will motivate UMNO supporters and add up trust from people to UMNO? UMNO hate to be called “kafir” by PAS, and now UMNO is doing the same. A child’s fight?

    Well – imagine you ondafeet for 12 hours everyday, walking through kampungs, getting hammered by the enemy, and on election day having to face down the enemy. You need a fighting slogan – something to keep the spirits up. You cannot enter into a fight singing ‘Rasa Sayang eh Rasa Sayang..,’ – you need a war song. Politics is a tough business, only meant for real fighters.

    Q6- “As to the Wan Farid decision, yes he was a bit weak, but surely in 2004, a lot of weak candidates were elected due to the power of Pak Lah. And in 2008 a lot of weak opposition candidates such as Manikavasingam was elected due to the power of Pakatan philosophy. So this tests Najib’s power – if Najib cannot help elect a weak candidate, whats so great about him.”

    Now, if Wan Farid is weak, why did Pak Lah and his cabinet approved this nomination? Najib’s fault? You are giving an analogy of football, but do you realize that even though Kevin Keegan was the manager of Newcastle, some of his players weren’t his choice. Is he to be blamed? Oh yeah, one more – current situation at Anfield. Rafa is in dispute with the management for not allowing to handle football decision. So, when Reds not performing due to his limited choice, is he to be blamed? The question is – for a decision made by cabinet lead by Pak Lah, Najib to be blamed?

    Excellent point. But we must expand the Liverpool context for it to be relevant to our situation at hand. Lets say Rafa took over from Houlliier. Houllier won the league for 4 times, and for the last campaign, Rafa won the league but it was close fight.

    Then Phil Thompson comes and persuades the board that we will be a great manager – and he can make sure Liverpool will win hands down. So one of the board members, Mr. Moo Hi Yi Din( South Korean) organizes a coup de tat, and now Rafa’s time is over, even though he still won the league.

    And then Phil Thompson takes over the first team, whilst Rafa becomes Director of Football and everyone knows he will relinquish his position in couple of months.

    In the first match under Phil Thompson, Liverpool gets smashed 4-0 away to Newacastle. Newcastle – a team thats only been around for a couple of years.

    After that, in a home match against Manchester United, Liverpool gets smashed 2-4, with KJ scoring 2 goals.

    So my point is – Phil Thompson is no better than Rafa, but Rafa was the leader in charge that allowed Liverpool to win the league. They cannot even beat Man U, given so much money been spent. Apalah Phil Thompson – better have Rafa in charge instead.

    Q7- “Now I realize – KJ is good, he may even be of Ronaldo status, but 1 Ronaldo cannot win an election. It takes team effort, but all your team mates must be there. One team mate, supposed to play midifield (and got the most nomination for Ketua Pemuda seat) was missing. So UMNO was playing with 10 men and lost. “

    Yes, Najib is the head of campaign, but the nomination made by BN. And Najib would not survive if he is working alone.

    That’s why he had help from BN’s team

    , which is in line with your reply. And by admitting KJ was in KT to help and by your description of KJ’s greatness, I would say, he should be able to help Najib. If you say what’s great about Najib, then I’ll ask, what is great about KJ?

    Sarcastically I’d say, even to help Najib, KJ was powerless. Do Najib blocked KJ from doing his job? Do Najib banned him from using “Kluk Klek” tagline? Which means, in other words, KJ was free to do so. So, did KJ’s help benefited UMNO?

    One more thing is, even 10 men playing against 11 players, Aston Villa yet won against Sunderland 2-1 yesterday, despite trailing 1 goal and losing one player being red carded. Should not this be a lesson? And who are you referring to that 1 man not in the field?

    The one man who was missing was Mr. Berani Gebalah. Where was he? How are you a team player if you cannot help your boss.

    Whats great about KJ?
    Whats great about KJ?

    There are at least 15 blogs out there supporting him – no other UMNO leader has that kind of support. That itself shows his charisma, that people like SuKJ, Bro Jinggo, Pejuang Bangsa, Senapang Patah, Penembak Tempat, MyKMU, Kulit Pisang, Left Flank, Hang Tegar, Dax Muhammad, renovatio and Wenger J Khairy are so inspired that we have blogs dedicated to support him.

    Well – we all thought that UMNO under Najib was invicinbile, thats why we can afford some people to run away, but now its proven otherwise. UMNO under Najib is weaker than ever, bring back Pak Lah!

    ODS: Thank you for your reply. Easy question eh? Hmm..”you need a war song. Politics is a tough business, only meant for real fighters.” So, you mean a war song must be mocking others, is it? I wonder if MCA and MIC had the same. I wonder also, if for real war which requires real fighters, such for Palastinians need a war song mocking Israel and Israel need war song mocking Palastinians.

    You see, this is the main point why I wrote this very article – mocking others. I know the importance of war song and war cry. But, such war cry, hardly to find mocking others. Do you ever hear songs to increase spirit by mocking others?

    If KJ is such a brilliant guy, he should be able to think of a way how to motivate his compatriots in such other way other than mocking opponents. There are various ways. Why should one succumb to that way?

    As for the missing so called “Berani Gelabah”, again, you are mocking another group in UMNO. You are clearly supporter of KJ, who is currently “Timbalan Ketua Pemuda”, and mocking other group of UMNO supporter. Wise action..is it? Is this a good example in way to show how good KJ is?

    Likewise, if you feel “Berani Gelabah” is the missing player, why bother? Aston Villa still won against Sunderland even after Ashely Young was dismissed. In fact, scoring two after that. After all, you are using “Ronaldo” for KJ, who won FIFA player of the year. So, “Ashley Young” who?

    15 bloggers supporting KJ is considered good number, even there might be some more. However, I guess neutral bloggers also have some say on this issue. I won’t dwell on this as cyberspace is way bigger than physical boundaries. I leave this number to you and other readers.

    As for the last part of your comments, you are inviting something worth to be read by others and I let others to ponder, think and comment. In fact, since you already made it into a postings, I expect you to get some comments on it.

    Thank you.🙂

  3. Salam ODS,

    Being busy is one thing, but there’s another reason I kept myself quite for so long.

    What if I tell you that KJ had purposely wanted KT to lose, and it has prevailed. I knew this from a friend almost two weeks ago and I already voiced my worry at Dato’ Sam http://dongtalk.blogspot.com/, but not directly.

    I had previously thought to blog on that, but my conscience told me not to, as it was pure speculation. In addition, it may look bad on BN.

    The game played by these 4th floor boy is much dirtier than I thought. My hope and wish now, though our politics are now degrading, hopefully we will not end like African countries.

    Take care and wassalam.

    ODS: It has been quite some too.

    Well, I’m not suprised if the speculation mentioned is true. The KT campaign was flawless, poorly conceived. And thus kind of ‘revealed’ by the last para made by WJK. Obvious isn’t it? Asking for Pak Lah to return (which I guess ‘return’ isn’t the best word as he is still at helm).

    Aduhai..begitu buruk apabila melayu gila kuasa…terutama Islam pada nama..iman,hati, akal entah ke mana…

  4. Dear ODS
    Brilliant stuff. I am moved to write when I read the comment by Wenger JK. He wrote “UMNO under Najib is weaker than ever…………”. Is he kidding me. UMNO president is still DOLLAH. Therefore Dollah is the one who should take the blamed for the loss.
    Likewise we know all along that they are playing dirty trick on Najib.More like “head I win tail you lose” situation. In otherword win or lose the KT election, Dollah win. Bring back DOLLAH. What a joke. They are creating all the shit and point the fingers at Najib. I hope Najib remember this if and when he become the PM. Give UMNO a complete overhaul.

    mohamed

    ODS: Thank you Mohamed. I guess the line mentioned made by WJK wasn’t expected by me. Seriously. I even do not know if Najib will read the comment made by one of KJ’s supporters and what he will think.

    That’s why I say, up to the readers to judge or to consider. Anyway, thanks for dropping by.🙂

  5. This is my respon to Wenger..

    Why people especially Opposition used him as an Issue?? Orang kata ukur baju dibadan sendiri dulu lah..

    How hard KJ work trying to build up confidence for people and UMNO members to trust him and you will see how desperatelly he try to convince people to vote for BN,good for him BUT he must not forget,why people blaming him for the defeat in PRU12 and still he doesnt answering those questions!! Why?? And most of the time when he answer those question more question will pop out! Why because he actually doesnt answer those questions!!

    For Wenger a simple question that keep on haunting me is jeng jeng jeng

    1. HOW HE CAN GET A LOAN FROM A BANK WORTH MILLIONS TO PURCHASED THE LIBRA SHARES?? IF you answer “by cagar back the shares” then go balik kampung tanam jagung la..

    2. How he knows that LIBRA going to take over Capital?? Is he misused his in-law position??

    3. And how his Cambridge friend, the late Dato CID Chief’s son able to get Millions of loan as he is to buy a building and take over a business?? And also claim to be a member of group of Pak Lah advisers?

    4.KJ and this cambridge guy have a same MO which young,dont have a bussiness in the first place,just get back from Malaysia,the parent not rich enough (one is ex ammbasador one is ex CID Chief),but still able to secure loans up to MILLIONS in RM. HOW??

    5.And who is Pak Lah true advisors? If not KJ who? Why i want to know because i need to check their credibility and intergrity? Maybe not KJ but actually those advisors who need to be blame..

    Yes i also looking for somebody to point out,to blame somebody as Now Everybody Life being Screw out.. first the cancellation of the double track and Crocked Bridge.. i and thousands of my friends lost my job because the cancellation of the crocked bridge and the halt of the double tracking project.. who to blame? Pak Lah!! Who to blame? Whoever give him those advice!! But then who to blame? Pak LAh!!! Why? DO Pak Lah dont have brain to think the multiple effects to us the BURUH KASAR?? Im lucky because im a so called skilled worker but others??

    Now the double tracking is continue but what happened,the price of steel shoot up like no body bussiness and the cost of building up the track is becomes double!!

    And please la Wenger and those who KIPAS KJ bagai nak rak.. we do have friends in JPM and other Ministery and also dont forget in UMNO..
    And we know actually if not much but still enough information what ALL THOSE OXFORD and CAMBRIDGE GENIOUS is doing..

    Maybe we dont like Mahathir because of his autokratik way but STILL EVERYTHING HE DO WORKS and WITH VISIONS!! Even the OPPOSITIONs agree with it!!

    Another SOALAN CEPU MAS for KJ to answer because from my source this thing is also the brain child of KJ and Salleh BUDU (Sharizat’s Husband) jeng jeng jeng…

    Q: What happenned to the SOFT LOAn given by The Government to National FeedLot Corporation Sdn Bhd if not mistaken RM230 millions to grow the kettle rearing industry??

    Q: Why do the governmetn give such a HUGE LOAN to the company that just started up with no experiance in rearing kettles?? Why not others which have proven succeded in this industry??

    Q: Do the government check where those money when? To the personal used eg election fund? buying expensive and fancy cars? And i definately dont see cows anywhere!!

    And you KJ also happened to meet SALLEH BUDU at IJN keh!!

    This is what my observation with a little degree of info.. so PLEASEEEEE ENLIGTHEN ME UP!!

    ODS: Thank you for visiting Mr Ketam himself.

    Update @ 2.25pm, 20-Jan-2009: Mr Ketam, I just realised that one of KJ’s supporter – http://www.prokhairy.com/ has provided answers for ECM Libra issue, both in BM and English. It just the matter of you and other are satisfied with the answer given. As for me, I reserved my comment for the moment.

    Thank you

  6. Ketam should make a comment on my blog for me to respond, and I think Dato’ Seri Najib should first try and prevent a mega recession in Malaysia before worrying whether Wenger Khairy is whacking him in Padedoh.

    ODS: Well, in any way will do. You are free to answer here or at your space. Feel free to discuss.

    As for Najib should worry on economic, I believe Khairy is there to help, right? An Oxford graduate at his disposal should be able to help him🙂.

  7. But KJ is not in Government right,
    If he is he kena hentam for meddling in affairs,
    if hes not he kena hentam for not helping out.

    On an unrelated matter, that Mr. Navi is always always always kutuk UMNO in Dato’s blog. So thats why I got a bit angry – why must we let people run down our party and we keep quiet.

    I think it was you, or perhaps somebody else, who mentioned that when Tun kena kutuk by Samy Vello, all the UMNO leaders kept quiet.

    So I had to whack that Navi character, if not people who visit may think we are bacul.

    ODS: It is noted that KJ is not member of cabinet. However, it doesn’t mean ideas cannot come from him. After all, eventhough he isn’t a cabinet member, he involved with BN campaigns under UMNO flag. Which, I believe for the same cause, I believe KJ can provide ideas to Najib to help him improve current condition, right?

    Yup, on the unrelated matter I noticed that Navi critisized UMNO, but do read a comment after mine, whereby we can listen to it. And further to add value, in my comment, I stated that maybe, the criticsm made is good for UMNO.

    Well, on the part where he kutuk Tun, it isn’t me. I just gave a positive approach of how we can treat critics. After all, Tun is also a human. Perhaps, the kutuk part is a lesson for us on how to react if the same occassion and cause happen again. And of course, your action is one of the ways to show we are not ‘bacul’ after all.🙂

    Update comments @ 8.35pm, 21-01-09: I realised that one may ask/say (or perhaps you) that Government and BN are different entity and by right that it should be treated in seperate way. Which means, by WJK’s comment, KJ should not interfere with any Government decision.

    However, KJ and any other Malaysians has other means to help Government to face whatever obstacles in front of us in time to come. Be it effort, time, ideas, etc, which should be for the benefit of Malaysians as a whole. For example, what the bloggers are doing is actually contributing ideas and solutions beside having voice of concerns on Government action. Only the problem is, whether the future government under Najib, will brilliantly take note of concern and idea voiced. Obviously, under Pak Lah (and the government is still under Pak Lah) do not really heeding to signals and signs since months before GE 12, and yet proven during last KT by-election.

    One may point finger at TDM for spoiling out BN’s decision to put Wan Farid. Was he or not? Is it critics always bad? Is it supporter always good? Sometimes, we got to read between the lines…🙂

  8. Hi Ondastreet,
    You said
    Only the problem is, whether the future government under Najib, will brilliantly take note of concern and idea voiced

    Yes I am sure, Dato Seri Najib, probably one of the most brilliant, honest and trustworthy politicians ever to have served the country would take note of concerns and ideas voiced.

    I totally agree with you, and with Dato Seri Najib in charge, we can look forward to greater transparency, more efficiency and Malaysia will prosper, leading to some international analysts forecasting that his leadership will make the country sail through the economic storm without a scartch. Barisan will be strong once again, dissenting voices safely ‘turned over’.

    Truly, with Dato Seri Najib in charge, Malaysia will truly be Asia.

    ODS: I hope what are you sure of will happen. As for me, I’m not yet rest assured. Why? He is still the DPM, not yet a PM. That’s why I mentioned as “Only the problem is, whether…”

    Maybe the time line given by Nobisha (which I consider reasonable) is the suitable time frame for Najib to do what he has to do along with his BN members.

    On the other hand, I hope we will be ok in facing economic crisis. Only that, there certainly will be some scratch, which I hope not turn out to be permanent scar. Please read my comment in Dato Ti’s posting which I touched in short on facing economic crisis.🙂

  9. WJK, just wondering though..

    Earlier you mentioned “Well – we all thought that UMNO under Najib was invicinbile, thats why we can afford some people to run away, but now its proven otherwise. UMNO under Najib is weaker than ever, bring back Pak Lah!”, which sounded you opposed Najib..

    But then you mentioned “Yes I am sure, Dato Seri Najib, probably one of the most brilliant, honest and trustworthy politicians ever to have served the country would take note of concerns and ideas voiced.” A sound of sarcasm here..or what make you change your tone?
