‘Trust’ Najib!

FEB 7 — Why all this cynicism about Najib Razak’s “trust me and I can help you” statement? This is a man who can be “trusted”.

Let us examine the evidence since he became prime minister in 2009.

He can be “trusted” to keep silent when Perkasa bashes the Chinese and Indians and questions the loyalty of non-Malays.

He can be “trusted” to keep silent when supporters of Umno drag a cow head through the streets in protest against the construction of a temple in Shah Alam.

He can be “trusted” to pretend to be deaf when Umno politicians make all sorts of accusations against Christians and Christianity. (Note to PM: Not all Indians are Hindus)

He can be “trusted” to understand that it’s fine for ministers’ families to get government soft loans and use the money for better-yielding purchases.

He can be “trusted” to use 1 Malaysia as a sticker for any venture that basically gives money to voters in return for support.

He can be “trusted” to allow state companies to be sold to government cronies and even national projects awarded without open tenders.

He can be “trusted” to start a health insurance scheme where the people have to pay, although the government provides primary health-care.

Please “trust” Najib to do what it takes to keep power.

    Asking Malaysians to trust him is a joke.
    He knows that majority Malaysians do not trust him;….why then he speak like that?
    Perhaps it is his way to say goodbye as PM…joking around or his script writer is a nut.

    Ah Jib Gor, we can trust you to keep quiet when your friend gave Pak Kum to our senior citizens on Chinese New Year.
    We can’t even trust you to preside over your own party, let alone Malaysia.


    We need to change the tenant at Putrajaya. GE 13 is our best chance. Failure is not an option. Let us work very very hard.

    You do not need to tell people to trust you when you had earned yourself to be trustworthy. Its only when you know that you cannot be trusted, you start asking people to trust you.

    How to trust him when he is known to flip flop his mind faster than you can tweet.

    Next week he will be asking all the leaders of the various religions to ‘trust’ him during his luncheon with them.

    When you need to ask others to ‘trust’ you, you know deep inside you have no confidence, sincerity or credibility. Only losers asks, maybe even begs, others to trust him. It is their last line of defence.

    What is that he is hiding in his hand behind him?

    And Samy Vellu said…in his 75 years..he has never seen a more sincere and better PM than Najib..at the Batu Caves Thaipusam celebration.
    This Samy sure knows how to rub shoulders with his ever famous apple polishing art.
    I wonder why no poem for Najib..like he wrote for Mahathir?
    That take hours to compose.
    What he spoke..just few minutes.

    That was a plea in desperation …’trust me’ !
    Obviously he knows within him where he stands in the eyes of the people.

    Did Altantuya trust such dirty tricks too that got herself where she is today? People, please think.

    This is what is to be learned
    Not to keep asking people to trust you
    Trustworthiness has got to be earned
    Then people will vote for you

    If Malaysia is ruled like PR governed Penang
    We would have a better future
    We can’t trust the corrupt Umno/BN gang
    Next GE, vote PR to be our saviour

    The hindoos should ask back, “Why must we trust you when you won’t even carry a kavadi to earn our trust?”

    Trust him! He is going to top another Mongolian beauty before he dies…
