Lulu Still On "Tell The Truth"

A week ago, NST reported this
The prime minister wanted leaders, especially those in Barisan Nasional, to tell him the facts about those issues without sugar-coating them.
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
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.
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.
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.
It's frightening that
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.

Truth about what???
------
-Truth about what how bully the Offices had worked and are working?
-Truth about why payment in his Finance Ministry can pay 98 per cent of transactions within seven days against a given time-frame of two weeks? in relationship with the loopholes reported by the 2005 & 2006 AG' reports?
-Truth about how Concessionaires will benefit the "Private"?
-Truth why so many abandoned projects and yet OKT is still venturing into One-stop center and Solid Waste? Similarly, for his other Left and Right Hands?

DOES HE KNOW NOT THE TRUTH?

Does he know the consequences of all these, is more important!
BUT DOES HE AND HIS FELLOW OFFICERS CARE TO UNDERSTANDING EVEN THEY ALL KNOW IT?

The key points are the Consequences do not seem to affect any one of them!! Neither an increase of Toll nor the toast!!

SO WILL HE CARE! OR, WILL THEY CARE!!
Or Care to Say but Care not to Stay!!

The effect of today is a CAUSE of the last 20 years so the Truth is not WHAT to TELL but WHAT to LEARN!! May be only when in ICU then one could have the MIND or HEART to realize!

The man in the widerness (... nursery rhyme )

The man in the wilderness asked me
How many strawberries grew in the sea.
I answered him, as I thought good,
As many as 'red herrings' grew in the wood.

It's that annually prepared script very expected and always impregnated with exhorting platitudes - repeated without fail.

Salvador Dali's surreal work best depicts this sort of "Truth":

Men Shall Know Nothing of This 1923
Les Hommes n'en sauront rien

Even if one does not know what is meant by surreal, one can easily perceive the poor and inverted quality of "Truth" as promulgated in Bolehland everytime.

The man in the clown-suit asked me,
How many cosmonauts can go to space,
I answered him, as I thought good,
As many as there are on the Earth.

How does a society handle the truth when it elevates favored Beliefs above Reason? For crying out loud, when it upholds Faith above Logic wrt the Law like in the the secular court's surrender(with or without judge FarRuse's promotion) to the syariah court, the end of Reason is close at hand.
