I am shocked! I am shocked, dumbfounded and flabbergasted that anyone could suggest that election candidates from Barisan Nasional should make public declaration of their assets.
How can they be asked to do anything that could jeopardise their safety or endanger their lives?
Several BN MPs have said that a public declaration of assets by potential election candidates may jeopardise their safety, ahead of what is expected to be the country’s most intensely-fought polls.
Some have gone so far as to suggest that BN members of parliament would look more credible if they disclose their assets publicly.
Can you imagine what could happen to a BN MP if it became public knowledge that he had millions and millions of ringgit stashed at home or in his local or overseas banks or even in parts unknown?
That YB will become the target of every samseng who will not only proceed forthwith to the MP’s gated mansion to rob him blind, but more worrying they will track his wife, girlfriend or mistress on their shopping trips to Milan, London or New York and then have the wife, girlfriend or mistress kidnapped for ransom.
Aiyah sure die one lah – not only got to pay out but also if the wife hears about the girlfriend or mistress, sure die twice!
BN MPs have already done enough untuk bangsa, negara, ugama dan lain lain……more of the lain lain than anything else.
Some of them have braved the wraths of their first wives by marrying another one or two other wives on the sly – an actress, a model or perhaps even a singer. Call it love, call it libido, call it anything you like. I call it the stupidity of aged fat lothario whose only attraction to the opposite sex is a fat bank balance.
One of them was ‘brave’ enough to confront the authoritative Malacca Custom and Excise Office and demanded that they ‘close one eye’ while he himself would probably be closing both his eyes in this game of dare.
That was brave of that MP because who can deny that the one eye is more at an advantage than the man with two eyes closed.
What about the “courage” of that BN MP caught with his pants down? Not only did he admit to the act after DVDs of the said act were distributed in Muar (well what else can he do when faced with such evidence already seen by the good people of Muar and elsewhere!) but he also courageously resigned from all his political post.
His supporters were so impressed with his ‘berani mati’ act that they soon elected him to be their party president. That just goes to prove that this really is Bolehland.
Being arrogant and obnoxious
BN members of parliament are not frighten to call a spade a spade and damm the consequences.
Nazri Aziz knows why he is being attacked all the time. It is not because he is arrogant nor was it because he is such an obnoxious character…no…as he said it:
“Don’t you think that I am an asset, that there’s an attack on me now? If I’m just an ordinary MP or I’m not important to Umno, you think they’ll attack me? They won’t, right?”
I guess being arrogant and obnoxious is part and parcel of being a valuable asset to Umno and BN.
These BN MPs will leave no stone unturned, will climb any mountain and will swim through shark infested waters in their tireless efforts to serve bangsa, negara, ugama dan lain lain.
Even if they fail time and time again in trying to serve bangsa, negara dan ugama, and even if they have never done their duty towards their electorates – what matters is that they did try. Give them credit for lying, cheating…… I mean trying!
Who suggested to Najib Tun Razak that his coalition candidates should be screened by MACC? Aisehman, as if the MACC are not flat out investigating the corrupt practices in Selangor, Kedah, Penang and in Kelantan.
Thank god BN was able to take back Perak and give some breathing space to MACC. MACC knows that states under Barisan Nasional are free from graft, plenty of corruption but no graft.
It has been suggested by some anti-national elements (well Pakatan Rakyat MPs actually – are they not one and the same thing?) that all this asset declaration exercise is an attempt by Najib to ensure that no candidates from Muhyiddin’s camp will be allowed to stand as candidate for BN.
It is mischevious of anyone to suggest that Najib would do something underhand to rid himself of any political threats from within Umno.
There is nothing underhand in all this. If any hand is involved, it would be Najib’s hand and its ability to hand over say…. RM5 million…. to the people of Sibu and others who might have need of a hand out.
The rakyat should know because they have been getting so many handouts from him this year.
Some of you might dismiss this out of hand because you think Najib had no hand in these kind of handouts but you have to hand it to Najib when these kind of things need to be done – he is usually the first to raise his hand!
If you cannot trust a BN MP, whom can you trust? As some MPs have pointed out, the MACC’s job is to fight corruption and not to filter election candidates with dubious financial records.
Let the people decide. If they want to elect MPs with dubious financial records, then how can you blame these MPs? Blame the poeple!
Trust your PM
The people must understand that BN MPs are already disclosing their assets to the Prime Minister. Najib is the keeper of the gate and if you cannot trust your own PM, who else can you trust?
And do not tell me that you would rather trust Botak Chin more than you trust your own PM.
Anyway that was a rhetorical question, so don’t tell me who you trust more! Confused? What is a rhetorical question you ask me? Okay here are some examples of rhetorical questions:
· Are you telling me that Umno is corrupt?
· Has Mahathir retired?
· Are Muhyiddin and Najib buddies?
