If you have been pondering lately as to why Malaysia has seen so little progress beyond high crime rates and massive traffic jams, you should study the public pronouncements of the senior leaders of the BN.
In the past few days, the DPM comes up for special mention on account of the following incidents:
1.When pressed for comments on his abuse of government helicopters to visit UMNO divisions in East Malaysia, he indicated that he was not scared of any corruption probe. Is the MACC scared to probe the misuse of the RMAF helicopters?
2.When asked about the disbarred lawyer BN candidate for the Permatang Pasir by-election, he dismisses the Disciplinary Board's action after a CBT case as like "a parking ticket" for which the compound has been settled.
3.The latest example is mentioned in the malaysiakini article headed Better for PKFZ dispute to be resolved 'amicably' and the article describes how the DPM feels quarrelling in the open would not only affect BN chances in the Permatang Pasir by-election but also mar the image of the government.
I suggest the government's image was already in the pits before the helicopter took off. Now how in heaven's name can we approve this type of person to be occupying the seat just one step below the nation's top leader?
