Daim strips Anwar naked

Posted: 13 Jun 2014 11:06 PM PDT

As an Opposition Leader, Anwar has been accusing the government of practicing nepotism and cronysim.

However, he has forgotten his 'wonderful era' as deputy prime minister and finance minister, before the Cabinet decided to sack him about 15 years ago.

Those with him in the Cabinet knew what he did back then. Many of his friends (and ex-friends) too, especially those who had flourished from his position. I think some people have the story but only a few would come forward.

One of them is former Finance Minister Daim Zainuddin:
Tun Daim Zainuddin, the predecessor of Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in the Finance Ministry, said Anwar's policies during his helm, which included giving away company shares, was the catalyst for the Malays' lacklustre business performance.
According to an interview by Berita Harian he said Anwar had enriched his allies when he was Finance Minister by giving them shares in companies.
"This led them to think that it was easy to be rich and there was no need to be involved in business.
"If you supported him (Finance Minister), you got shares, then you sold them and became rich.
"This is partly why many Malays are no longer business-savvy. The mentality has stuck since then."
Daim said Malays had also lost the "culture to do business" after being colonised for more than 400 years.
"The ones that invaded us also started from a company, the East India Company, where the British had encouraged Malays to stick to agriculture and fishing and not be involved in business."
He said only 1% of Malays had commercial land in the city.
"This is worrying. Malays nowadays can't afford to buy property in the city.
"We give land to UDA (Urban Development Authority) and they sell it to Chinese businessmen.
"Even for MRCB (Malaysian Resources Capital Bhd) that had developed KL Sentral, almost no Malay bought properties there."
Daim warned Malays that the situation here could mimic that of Singapore.
"Just look at the Iskandar development, Penang and other places.
"It is not only the Chinese, but even Malaysians that are losing out on these properties because they are in the millions."
Anwar is never a sour grape. He is now more of a defeated general seeking revenge although he knows that he is not on the right footing...

When 13 planes go missing...

Radar problem or what?

Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 which disappeared since March 8 was not the only one 'missing' from radar surveillance. There were others too, quite a number of them.

Technology gets obsolete by the day. When one claims of developing the latest, the very next day a new and better one is invented.
The sudden disappearance of 13 aircraft from radars over Austria and neighbouring countries for 25 minutes has authorities urging a probe over the unprecedented event, AP reported.
According to Austria's flight service monitor, the 13 aircraft suddenly vanished from the radar screens between June 5 and 10 for 25 minutes each.
AP quoted Marcus Pohanka of Austria's flight service organisation, Austro Control, as saying the air traffic controllers screen did not show the 13 flights.
Air traffic control in the neighbouring regions of Germany and the Czech Republic also reported similar issues.
In what he called an unprecedented incident, Pohanka told Reuters that the location, height, and identity of the 13 aircraft indicated that they had vanished over Austria both times.
AP reported that flight controllers in Munich, Karlsruhe and Prague also experienced the same problems.
Pohanka declined to reveal which airlines and aircraft were involved, but suggested some may have been commercial airliners which flew at high altitudes.
The European Union's Eurocontrol and European Safety Aviation Safety Agency is expected to probe the incidents.
Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 also experienced similar issues when it suddenly dropped off the radar on March 8 while on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Despite extensive searches in the South China Sea and the Straits of Malacca, there has been no sign of the aircraft or its 12 crew members and 227 passengers. The search and rescue then moved to the southern Hindi Ocean.

Malaysia's military radar did pick up MH370 but no aircraft were deployed as it was considered non-hostile.

Who in the world is actually having control of the skies?

MC rejected, KJ!

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak today jokingly said he is happy that Khairy Jamaluddin is well enough so the Youth and Sports Minister will come for the cabinet meeting.

The prime minister in his latest Twitter updates to Khairy said: "@KhairyKJ glad you felt well enough to come for cabinet meeting. #MCDitolak."

Najib had shown the Twitter to Khairy, who has sent him a Twitter to apply for leave before that.

Khairy in his Twitter said :"@NajibRazak Boss. I'm having fever. My body aches and I cannot get up since yesterday.

"Sorry I can't go to work today, tomorrow I send the MC slip. #CubaNasib," said Khairy.

This morning the minister joined nearly 1,000 youths to witness the kick-off for the World Cup 2014 between Brazil and Croatia through a gigantic screen installed in front of the Sultan Abdul Samad building here.

"It's only the first day of the World Cup and many (including myself) are looking like cats (Khairy Twitter's profile picture) but adamantly refused to admit it," he added. – Bernama

NOTE: Yes, its fever time... football and 'ponteng'! So many would give excuses to either come late to the office or skip the day. It happened many times already. So, don't 'kelentong'!
