PM's NEM Speech Laudable. Now Arrest Ibrahim Ali And Whip Civil Service Into Action

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak launched the New Economic Model just now. On paper it is a courageous move. “We can’t afford to duck the issues any longer. If we are to truly tackle inequality and become a beacon of progress in the region, we must create a sense of urgency to reform,” Najib had said sounding like a true statesman.

However Reuters reported that 'Najib barely touched on the raft of economic and social privileges intended for the majority Malay residents that critics say has engendered graft. The prime minister is reliant on the 55 per cent Malay population for votes'. And THAT is the crux of the whole bloody problem. Espousing lofty principles and 'unveiling' plans for radical reforms is one thing but to get it implemented is a totally different kettle of ikan bilis.

Assuming if Najib truly believes in what he is preaching (and that's a big IF) and that he has the balls to demand its implementation, there are some real obstacles in taking that path. First we have that most opportunistic, racist bastard by the name of Ibrahim Ali and his fellow low life in Perkasa who represent the ideal amalgamation of the worst qualities in Malaysian politics coupled with a deeply rooted inferiority complex. Cheering them on are the biggest dangers to national and inter-ethnic unity - Tun Dr Mahathir and DPM Muhyiddin Yassin. The latter two are above the law in Umno's Malaysia and therefore untouchable. However if there is even an iota of genuineness in Najib's reform plans he should throw the book at Ibrahim Ali and incarcerate the bastard. This should not too difficult for Najib since he has some experience in such matters. At least it would have a calming effect on non-Malay businessmen and foreign investors. Screaming racist invectives is not going to help attract FDIs.

Another big hurdle the PM would face is the equally racist and notoriously moribund civil service. Getting these indolent louts to do his bidding might prove very, very difficult for there are many Ibrahim Alis who are comfortably perched in strategic positions who will not budge unless prodded like cattle.

Then there are the rent addicted umnoputeras who will make life hell for Najib. Free largesse is more potent than drugs and the PM can expect the mother of all withdrawal symptoms to afflict a large portion of Umno's membership. Outrage, violence and cardiac arrests may ensue.

In conclusion, Najib is going to have a terrible time in the near future if he is really determined to reform the nation's outdated and racist policies. But I have grave doubts if he will even get to first base before retreating with his tail between his legs. It takes a great leader to dare bring profound changes in the face of very strong opposition even from his own supporters. The current U.S. president is one such person. And believe you me, Najib is no Barack Obama.

The problem is simple. You want freebies but you dont want to work hard. You just bark and expect something to fall fromt he sky.

Ibrahim Ali a bastard that I know doesn't pay taxes for all his earnings. He expects freebies from other people's tax contribution.

Do you call this Malay rights? I call this sin's rights.

In addition to that, nobody is going to rob the country from the Malays. Within the Malay community, there are some very hardworking Malays e.g. AirAsiaX CEO. If every Malay is as hardworking as him, you can get your 67% share. However, if every Malay choose to bark like Ibrahim Ali. God help the Malays.

Najib must introduce "Malay Reserved Shares" so that ay shares awarded to Malays can only be sold to other Malays. That way the shares will not be bought by rent seekers for immediate sale to the general public. The shares will be a long term asset for the Malays.

It will also ensure that non-Malays do not feel frustrated at the constant complaint that Malays only have 2 or 3 percent of the economy -- that too after 50 years of UMNO rule.

All tenders must be open and transparent. Let Malays compete openly with Malays. People will respect them because it will separate the real entrepreneurs from rent-seekers. If others can do it cheaper by at least 10%, then give it to the cheapest tenderer - not an UMNOcrat for him/her to onsell to the poor Chinaman!

Don't tell me that you still believe in all the inane statements and declaration by Najib? Are you another Malaysian who is quick to forget, do the same thing again and again and expect different results?

For me, Najib just wasted more than 70M of the taxpayers' money on this trip.
