First Najib, Now Muhyiddin

Najib had an injured expression.

"How could you even suggest that we will get overthrown like Mubarak?" his puppy dog eyes seemed to say.

Now his deputy is doing his solo bit.

I wonder when they will unleash the chorus.

SINTOK, Feb 24 — Attempts to link the political situation brewing up in several Middle East countries to Malaysia and the assumption that this country would also face a similar development are unrealistic, said Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The Deputy Prime Minister said the claim that a government chosen by the people would collapse was an assumption that was not substantiated by concrete explanation.

“I’m sad that there are disgruntled voices attempting to link the political developments in the Middle East with the political situation in this country.

“Politics in our country is totally different from the politics in several countries in the Middle East because our government is chosen by the people in a democratic and competitive general election,” he said in his speech at a Special Gathering with the DPM in conjunction with the 27th Anniversary of the Founding of the Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), here today.

Muhyiddin, said the competitive general election made the government in this country more responsive.

He said the traits of a responsive government were that national wealth was distributed fairly, public interest was given priority and every individual, regardless of race or religion, received equal opportunity to succeed.

He said if the government ignored the problems of the people and did not discharge its responsibility properly, the people would then make the appropriate decision during the general election.

"Our government is chosen by the people in a democratic and competitive general election"?? Really? By delineation, gerry-mandering, postal votes, phantom voters etc?

I wonder if he could possibly convince a tadpole (in the drain outside my house) of his sincerity. That would be quite a feat to witness.

And this is hard to beat, "..national wealth was distributed fairly, public interest was given priority and every individual, regardless of race or religion, received equal opportunity to succeed".

Whoa! I did not see that coming!

Someone hand me a barf bag.

May I share your barf bag, Cranky? Mine burst after I read Mr Mudface's last public statement.
