Lulu Suspects Maybe.... Just Maybe, The List That The PM Is Looking At Is Flawed

"The list of the richest individuals in Malaysia is still led by non-Malays,” he said in opening the annual Umno meet in Kuala Lumpur today.
as reported by not just Malaysiakini, but also The Star

if you think about it, where is the name of the former UMNO Treasurer, the one who was the Finance Minister during the privatisation era, the one who made Halim Saad & gang multi-millionaires? how can his name be not there?
and if his name is not there, it makes you wonder, doesn't it, how many other names are not there?
and not acheiving the 30%? It depends on whose study and what methodology, doesn't it?
Maybe the problem is not what the percentage is
Maybe it lies in how that 18.9% / 45% / 33.7% is being distributed
Maybe 95% of that amount [whatever that percentage is] went to the folks who have been sitting in PWTC this past week, leaving the common people behind.
Maybe, yah?

Famous saying:

There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.
(Benjamin Disraeli)

Umno gave new life to the ironic saying.....with full abandon.

Everyone else must be obliged to be stupid too.
