The prime minister wanted leaders, especially those in Barisan Nasional, to tell him the facts about those issues without sugar-coating them.Someone recently remarked to Lulu about how clueless this Prime Minister is. During Mahathir's regime, the old man knew the headlines three days ahead. With this PM, three days later still blur-blur.
We do not want to pretend and say that everything is okay. We do not want to be in a state of denial. Tell the truth, even if it is painful
This kind of PM how to be a strategist?
And then.... [trust] Zam [not to let us down] said,
Information Minister Zainuddin Maidin has told editors not to play up negative news because Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's pledge to "hear the truth" does not apply to the media.It's frightening that
Yesterday, chief secretary to the government Mohd Sidek Hassan in another meeting urged media organisations to avoid emphasising on news deemed negative against the government, such as the 2006 Auditor-General’s report.
PM want the truth, but does not know it.
He continues to live in a dream world, flying around the world in a jet reserved for his personal use, chatting with our first man in space whose one week trip is a "free deal" and spending oil money like as if it were a bottomless well but in reality, is expected to run dry in three years.
The rakyat, whom the truth is supposed to be suppressed, not only knows it, but has to live it. The price of bread will go up after raya in tandem with the price of flour. A man caught stealing from the pasaraya is sentenced two years jail whereas those who CBT millions are persuaded to retire. Soon to come, a congestion charge into the city when the public transport facility is still lacking. The mullahs have hijacked the administration and made the country an Islamic model that even Turkey does not want to follow.
It's high time he takes his own advise.
“The prime minister must have the courage and readiness to listen even to the worst stories, whether it is related to the country or himself. Never allow yourself to sink in a hole of denial and feel that everything is alright.”But will he?
Lulu doesn't think so. He's too happy in his dream-land, filled with all his illusions and make-believe.
