The Present PH (Especially This Cabinet) Will Not Survive Without Tun Dr Mahathir

Here is some news from yesterday.

Kadir Jasin rebuked Waytha Moorthy over his conduct in temple issue
Kadir said Waytha was minister in charge of unity yet his actions helped neither

Kadir,  media adviser to Dr M said Mahathir had “advised” Waytha
However, he did not say what the advice was

Our PM is kind-hearted, even when angry, people may not realise it
Waytha should not be so gung-ho and comfortable with his position

you were not chosen by the people
You are made minister by Mahathir

Please do not embarrass our king and PM  he said
Kadir also trained guns on Maszlee Malik
saying the PPBM MP had been “lectured” by Mahathir
agreed with Mahathir country had many religious schools 
there was no need to inject more religion into schools
schools should go back to original objectives to unite all races, religions

unlikely Maszlee dont know non-Malays no longer go to national schools 
they have become more like religious schools

more Malay parents send children to Chinese schools 
because they want their children to excel

My comments : It is becoming all too glaring that the present Cabinet is not up to the mark. Some of the Ministers are plain incompetent.

This is not a matter of 'still learning on the job'. 

A Cabinet Minister is not a guru agama or an office worker where mistakes may be tolerated, allowed or they can "learn on the job".

Once you are a Cabinet Minister you are already flying the Jumbo Jet with a full load of passengers at 1000 km/h and at 60,000 feet. You have to navigate safely to destination and land the plane and passengers safely on the ground. There is no such thing as 'learning on the job' or "improving as we go along".  You must know your job.

I am not alone in saying that the Pakatan Harapan Cabinet has been showing some gross incompetence since coming into power.  

Tun Dr Mahathir himself has been saying again and again that the Cabinet is operating at failing grade.

Todate the handling of major issues has been bungling and at great risk to the nation. This is not some school boys soccer game. 

1. Lets take the ICERD issue.   Too many Ministers were jumping into the fray.  The 'authority' to ratify the ICERD is with the Minister of Foreign Affairs Saifuddin Abdullah. 

But the Minister getting all the flak was Waythamoorthy the Minister of Unity aka the Hindraf guy. 

The government could not have picked a more unsuitable Minister to move this highly racially sensitive matter than Waythamoorthy the Hindraf guy.  

It should have remained with Saifuddin Abdullah the Foreign Minister. 

Why? Because ONLY the Foreign Minister has all the facts as well as has the power to ratify the ICERD.  Plus Saifuddin is not Hindraf - less tension.

The Pas Pis Pus, UMNO and the others know that the ICERD reflects good universal values.  The ICERD is a universal amar makruf nahi munkar - 'upholding the good and denying that which is bad'.  Otherwise why do you want to help the Rohingyas?

Pas pis pus and Umno are just playing politics. 
Inciting racial hatreds because they have lost the support of the people. 

2. The Maha Mariamman Temple was another gigantic cock-up.  The Police bungled this from Day 1.  

I have seen the viral message which says the Police had met with the developer's reps weeks before the flare up.   It was a running "to and fro" between the developer and the temple and the Police knew about it.  This was not something that took place suddenly between lunch and dinner on the 26th November. 

Why did the Police allow 22 cars to be burned? They could have stopped it.

Most importantly why did the Subang Jaya OCPD give FALSE information (on that critical day) that it was two groups of Indians ?  

The Minister's Press Statement clearly proves that the OCPD was deliberately giving out false news.  The OCPD should be investigated.
  • The Minister exposing the payment of RM150,000 raises more questions. 
  • The Minister said 50 thugs were paid RM150 to RM300 each. 
  • That adds up to only RM7500 to RM15,000.  
  • What happened to the balance RM142,500 to RM135,000?
  • Were the Police also paid off to close one eye?   
  • This question now becomes relevant. 
Then the Cabinet ministers also amplified the temple problem. 
I am referring the FOUR Indian Ministers appearing together at a press conference. 

Is this the New Malaysia?  Indian Ministers appear together over Indian issues.

What happened to the Malay Ministers?
Where were the Chinese Ministers?

Why wasnt Kulasegaran wearing his Thodta-karan (gardener's) red turban? 
I want to register a protest with the registrar of thodta-karan's turbans.

Is it the policy of the PH government that Chinese Ministers will appear over Chinese issues? Malay Ministers will appear over Malay issues?

In that case where is the Mamak minister? 
Who is going to appear for mamak issue?

Hats off to Tan Sri Muhyiddin the Minister of Home Affairs who released that detailed press statement which has just killed off the entire temple issue.  The Press Statement should have come out earlier but the amount of detail  made up for the delay. 

The moment Tan Sri Muhyiddin said the magic words 'RM150,000 paid to Malay thugs' everyone just shut up.  The issue just died. The Maha Mariamman Temple is back to normal.  

So RM150,000 was wasted. Or some people will be singing karaoke.

(Let me digress a little. I was in the MACC Advisory panel for FOUR years until 2014(?) Do you all recall that Pengarah Kastam who was shot and killed at a road junction in Putrajaya? Until today the case is not solved. The Police never caught the murderers.  There were Press photographs of his funeral. Some of his 'colleagues' were photographed as very sad and even crying over his shooting death.  Well folks, later that same night, some of those same "sad colleagues" were seen singing and dancing   at some dangdut club or karaoke club somewhere in Kuala Lumpur. They did not know they were under surveillance. Maybe they had already made reservations at the dangdut club which they could not cancel. Jangan kita terlalu buruk sangka. Also, "Muslims do not tell lies".  Ha ha ha.) 

3. Menteri Crypto Currency. 

Khalid Samad the Minister of the Federal Territory does not seem to understand the meaning of cleanliness, clean sidewalks, dirty warongs, hawkers blocking shop fronts, hawkers blocking the kaki lima and blocking the sidewalks. 

Despite becoming Minister for six months now not much has changed in Kuala Lumpur. The uneducated Bangla and Indon labourers now control our traffic flow with their dirty red and green flags at all the roadside construction sites around KL. They can create massive jams by placing those plastic cones just six inches into the traffic lane. 

The major roads are still being closed for sports and other activities.  Go to the sports stadiums for sports activities. Do not close the roads in South East Asia's third largest city for silly activities involving a few hundred or a few thousand people only. Kuala Lumpur is home to millions of people.  

4. Maszlee Malik the nonperforming Minister of Education.

Contrary to your belief Maszlee Malik may know what he wants to achieve. 
It may not be what you and me want to achieve.

His latest totally stupid suggestion was that hotels with swimming pools make available their swimming pools for school students to learn to swim. 

I think Maszlee  must be from the real backwoods with no idea of how the world works. 

1. Hotel pools are usually designed for aesthetics (curved shape, round shapes) with jacuzzi, water jets etc. For tourists and hotel guest to relax. How do you teach professional swimming lessons in such pools.

2. If a school has 1000 students, and a hotel pool can only take 40 students at a time for a one hour swimming lesson, they will need to CSR the pool 25 hours per week to cover all 1000 students.  That is 5 hours a day from Monday to Friday. 

3. Which hotel in the world can pinjam their swimming pool for FIVE HOURS every day? Or even for ONE hour every day? Where will the Chinese and European tourists swim? They are paying RM350 per night to stay at the hotel.

4. What if a student drowns or has an accident? Whose responsibility will that be? The hotel or the school or the MOE?

5. What if a student pisses or craps in the swimming pool? How will the hotel explain that to its paying guests? 

6.  Maszlee finally saw the conflict of interest in him being the Minister and President of the UIA and agreed to resign. Then he backtracked and said he will leave at end December or something. Tan Sri Muhyiddin the President of Bersatu told Maszlee to just resign immediately and be gone.  Why does Maszlee need time to resign from the UIA? Many loose strings still untied? 

7.  Then came Maszlee's expose about the "loss of milk, worth millions of ringgit, under the Susu 1Malaysia (PS1M) programme implemented during the previous administration."

Then what happened? Everything has gone quiet.  

Feedback I received from a previous Cabinet member (a slightly more honest guy) says that there was no loss of milk. Just the implementation was poor. 

The MOE at that time did NOT pay the suppliers in time for the milk. 
(It was a perishable item and the suppliers wanted payment upfront). 
So the four or so milk suppliers stopped supplying the milk. 

The Budgeted milk money was NOT spent and no milk was lost. 
Only the students did not get the milk. Sad.

Here is the interesting part. 

The milk contracts with the suppliers had been signed in 2010 by the Minister of Education at that time - who was Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, the President of Bersatu and Maszlee's party boss.

There is some talk that Maszlee's deputy may have 'encouraged' him to expose this milk issue - which could embarrass Muhyiddin.  Just a few days later Muhyiddin told Maszlee to resign immediately from the UIA. 

But all this is just camouflage.  

Here are two pictures. 

The two guys in these two pictures are the same. It is a before and after of Maszlee and the mufti Perlis Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin. From university days in Jordan (above) and now in government (below).

There is plenty going on between Maszlee and the Mufti.  Both are said to be pro Salafi / Wahabi. Maszlee was a member of the Perlis Mufti's Advisory Council or something like that. 

Under Maszlee, the "Sunnah Perlis" government (of Perlis) has given RM5 Million to the UIA for a scholarship program. The conditions of the RM5 million scholarhsip include a proviso that the government of Perlis shall select 50 of the scholarsip candidates. 

..menyerahkan RM5 juta kepada UIA dalam bentuk biasiswa

Rujuk: http://www.utusan.com.my/berita/nasional/kerusi-jamalullail-maips-anugerah-50-biasiswa-pengajian-phd-bernilai-rm5-juta-1.745022 

Under Maszlee the government of Perlis has funded a Jamalulail Chair at the UIA. 

..Mewujudkan kerusi Jamalullail di Universiti Islam Malaysia (UIM) . . .dengan sejumlah besar peruntukan. 

Rujuk: http://www.utusan.com.my/berita/nasional/dr-basri-penyandang-pertama-kursi-jamalullail-1.598725 

The talk is the scholarsips and the chair will be used to encourage their type of thinking.

Another theory suggests that there is now a new but growing divide between the Salafi/Wahabis and the Sunnis shaping up in Malaysian politics, both in government and in the opposition.

People like Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yasin are Sunnis, perhaps with some interest in Sufism. I should ask Tan Sri the next time I see him. 

There are Salafis/Wahabis both in government, certainly in UMNO (the Youth Chief) and now maybe in Pas as well.  

So there could be more going on in the background than meets the eye. 

While we are thinking of a better country, a better economy, better education. freedom of religion, freedom FROM religion etc there are other people  who have other thoughts.

I digress. The Pakatan Harapan Cabinet is now a hodge podge of different interests.  

But whatever your interests are, a high degree of competence is required to run a government and run a country.  

We are not seeing that in good quantity.

Here is the final take :  In just SIX months some of the Cabinet Ministers have already begun to alienate the public. The voters. At this pace, the Pakatan harapan WILL lose the confidence of the voters.
