Najib Razak's Political Largessse

Sarawak Report revealed that Najib Razak distributed funds from his private accounts to select individuals, nearly all of them from UMNO and who are now proving to be the prime minister's staunchest defenders in the present 'Najib' crisis.
The London-based whistleblower website identified BN Backbencher's Club chairperson Shahrir Samad (left) as one of the recipients, having been given RM1 million – and he, in turn, responded by acknowledging that accepting funds from his party president was normal. Already the admission served as a confirmation that the Sarawak Report disclosure wasn't a fabrication.
Besides that, it was further alleged that UMNO information head Ahmad Maslan was paid RM2 million and Puteri UMNO chief Mas Ermieyati Samsudin received RM50,000.
Other beneficiaries supposedly included Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein; Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Azalina Othman; Second Finance Minister Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah; Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai; Foreign Minister Anifah Aman; Rural and Regional Development Minister Ismail Sabry. Agriculture and Agro-based Industries Minister Ahmad Shabery Cheek; Education Minister Madzir Khalid; Deputy Agriculture Minister Tajuddin Abdul Rahman; and Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Razali Ibrahim.

These servile stooges seem to be almost totally dependent on the largesse of Najib Razak for their political survival. And all it takes is for Najib to dole out stacks of cash in order for them to be beholden to him. Immoral. Shameless.
On Tuesday evening, I went to Persiaran Apec in Cyberjaya to attend the RBC Toastmasters meeting. I was the General Evaluator. To be honest, I had zilch expectations but in the end, I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised. And even better, I actually enjoyed the meeting. Sure, members have lots to learn but they have made a good start and that's already progress.  

Thanks to Teoh Chun Ming for the invite and also for the 27 km ride.
