I have always been annoyed at how carelessly our money is spent. First APCO, then FBC Media, and now the former advisors to Tony Blair.
The thing that puzzles me with Najib is his fixation with spin and foreign spin doctors. First, he paid millions to APCO, then paid much more millions to FBC Media, a company which brought much disrepute to Malaysia because it transpired they paid for Najib and Malaysia to get good publicity.
The PM obviously does not rate his own staff highly. And it surprises me that any leader has to hire foreign spin doctors to tell him how to become a reformer.
Now he has got the Blair Boys. So who is paying their fees? Am I, as the taxpayer, picking up the tab? Is Najib paying out of his own pocket?
