Latest rich and narrow-minded to speak is our PM's over privileged son-in-law.
Parents have been advised not to “privatise” the duty of raising their children to third parties as the move will result in lack of attention and the kids easily falling prey to social ills.
Does Khairy not know that, especially in the Klang Valley, it is very difficult to survive on a single income? Parents have to make the difficult choice of sending their children to the baby sitter, leaving them with the maid or subcontracting the task to the grandparents.
Then again, how would Khairy know considering that neither he [his father in law did tell us that nasty people (was it DrM?) caused his son-in-law to menganggur] nor his wife work.
Life for common folks like us is so, so different compared to his idealistic and idle-istic one.
And he doesn't stop there.
“The government has done a lot for education (in this country). Can’t they afford to contribute a sum to the school to help the parent-teacher associations?” he asked.
'o sweet Khairy, the answer to your question is there are a lot of parents who can't afford it. Does he not know how much the "a sum to the school" comes up to? Can you imagine what a nightmare it is for parents with 5 school children when the school term starts?
Lulu would think that education is the government's responsibility. There is no cop-out on that.
How would he know? His father was in the foreign mission, and his education was paid as part of the job package. They never had to worry about "trivial" matters like these.
rich and narrow minded... are you shuddering like Lulu is right now at the thought of his intention to lead the country?
Please do something about it in the coming elections. Put your "X" on any box other than the one with the dacing. The dacing is grossly unbalanced. Some people are growing too fat and heavy.
