Instruction: Advertise in UMNO Newspapers

On September 13, 2013, the Prime Minister made the call for GLCs and others to support Utusan Malaysia by advertising in the said UMNO-owned newspaper (Please read  my blogpost at http://helpvictor.blogspot.com/2013/09/naib-endorses-utusan.html).

Now Deputy Finance Minister Ahmad Maslan said he has instructed GLCs to advertise more in Malay language newspapers, i.e. the UMNO-owned Utusan Malaysia and Berita Harian. "They must take into account the struggle of Utusan Malaysia and Berita Harian for this country,” he told a press conference on Friday. “If they advertise so little in these newspapers, then their struggle for the country will be impeded"! A case of ministerial stupidity!

The Minister knows that GLCs and companies know that advertising in these newspapers is a sheer waste of money. Nobody with any spending power would buy the papers and read their rubbish. And I vigorously object to using my money for this!

More photos of the train journey that Sunway University Toastmasters took last Friday. There was enough time to do a myriad of activities besides Toastmastering on this comfortable train ride.
