When Vision2020 was crafted the people believed it.
Alas the dream has turned into a nightmare and all of us, including the foreign investors were conned.
Vision2020 was manipulated using the NEP and Ketuanan mantra to plunder the nation by the Bankrupsi Negara regime.
That should go into the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's greatest scam and the mother of all crimes that affected the lives of at least 30mil people.
You may query the 30mil number - so this is how the numbers add up.
27mil residents (2008 World Bank)
3mil resident overseas(my guess)
So it is not surprising that 1Malaysia is met with derision and scorn. It is the same snake oil salesman peddling the product with different APCO packaging, Just because it is foreign packaging does not mean the product is superior.
Malaysians have to take more control of their own destiny than rely on politicians with forked ("I am Malay first.....) tongues.
