Ironic and tragic if Najib is forecasting the disastrous future of his government and country under his premiership when he referred to Brazil’s 1-7 massacre by Germany in World Cup

It is both ironic and tragic that the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak could point to Brazil’s 1-7 massacre by Germany in the World Cup as the fate of absence of leadership when he himself has set Malaysia on auto-pilot without any leadership from him in the past year.

Where is Najib’s leadership in his 1Malaysia signature policy to create a Malaysia where every Malaysian would regard himself or herself as Malaysian first and race, religion or region second – in contrast to the “Malay first, Malaysia second” policy enunciated by his deputy, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin?

Where is Najib’s leadership in his Global Movement of Moderates for “the voices of moderation to drown the voices of extremism” when in the past year, there has been an incessant stoking and incitement of racial and religious hatred, tension and conflict in the country resulting in the worst racial and religious polarisation in the nation’s history?

Where is Najib’s leadership in the war against corruption, with Malaysia placed in the worst ranking of Transparency International (TI) Corruption Perception Index (CPI) during his premiership 2009 – 2013 when compared to the premiership of the two previous Prime Ministers, Tun Mahathir and Tun Abdullah – and what is even more mortifying to Malaysians, being overtaken by countries which had worse TI CPI rankings in the past like Taiwan, Spain, South Korea and Hungary and in danger of being left behind by other countries regarded in the past as even more corrupt like Turkey, Thailand, China or even Indonesia in the not too distant future?

Coincidentally, the latest update of the Asianomics Country Report today painted a gloomy outlook for Malaysia, predicting failure for the second phase of Putrajaya’s economic transformation plan due to Najib’s lack of will and leadership although he remained secure as Prime Minister as there is no worthy successor.

Even international observers and analysts have despaired at Najib’s lack of leadership!

The Cabinet meeting today does not indicate that Najib is prepared to provide the leadership to lead the country, as he preferred to leave it to coast along on auto-pilot.

This was the reason for my five tweets before the Cabinet meeting this morning:

1. All eyes on today’s Cabinet meeting – second after inclusion of Liow Tiong Lai, Wee Ka Siong, Mah Siew Keong. Will it behave like three monkeys – no see, no hear, no talk?

2. Will Ministers suffer collective attack and ignore Muhyiddin’s May 13 threat altogether? Or endorse “reminder” version? Or distance from it?

3. One Minister says national unity “more and more fragile today”. Another says racial tension “on the rise” and religious bigotry “getting worse”

4. But Najib Cabinet blind to these developments which are most comic if not very serious with arch-extremists calling for action against extremists?

5. Malaysians and world waiting – is Najib government really on auto-pilot with “do nothing” as its governing motto? Final test of Najib’s transformation!

Najib does not seem to be ready or able to provide the leadership which the government and country had been lacking for the past 14 months since the 13th general elections in May last year.

It will really be ironic and tragic if Najib is forecasting the disastrous future of his government and the country under his premiership when he used the analogy of Brazil’s shocking 1-7 loss to Germany in the World Cup semi-finals.

    Well….a person who acts as a flintstone ultimately produces fire that destroys relationships, he incites people against each other…

    As one of the oldest MP (maybe the oldest), why does he behave that way????

    Pak Lah, Taib Mahmud and many more (his generation) had stepped down….when will be his turn?

    Cintarambutan loves Najib who scores own goals. Sigh, Darwin was right, guys like Cintarambutan has lost the use of his brain since he never bothered to use it for the past 30 years.

    Mr. kangkong (not king kong), aren’t you the one who predicted Spain would win the world cup? Come on, own up! Since you are wrong about football, you are also wrong about running Malaysia.

    Look at the picture of his “cabinet” meeting. If everyone speaks for 15 minutes it will take all day to finish

    If leadership was the issue, then Prime Minister Najib has scored a hole-in-one! Who doesn’t love a well-spoken pun?

    Now it is confirmed! THis kangkong PM is pathologically disconnected from reality, shockingly to the point of he rediculing , mocking and making a complete fool of himself ! All his tens of Ministers and deputy ministers in PMO and press secretaries and consultants are doing a wonderful job of keeping this way !!

    That’s how our jib jib hooray leadership is all about- predicting. No need planning and foresight. Just predict. If it is wrong, predict again.

    Got this before Brazil was trashed 7:1.

    信不信由你…. 这次世界杯,意大离了,西班哑了、英格烂了、乌拉归了……1/4决赛:哥伦比哑了,法兰熄了,比利失了,哥斯达离家了!照这思路,接下去半决赛:巴熄了,荷烂了,决赛是德国阿根廷。最后:德过了,阿根停了,冠军应该是德国‼️
