Najib Razak's Blood Boils

PM Najib Razak (left) had said that his blood boiled and he was angry! At least that was what The Star had today reported him as saying.

This was in reference to speeches made by the former premier and former Deputy PM on Monday when both Mahathir Mohamad and Muhyiddin Yassin mauled him mercilessly over 1MDB and the RM2.6 billion political donation.
The twosome have been bugging Najib non-stop and they don’t want to let the issues be. They only want to provoke.
Without a doubt, the duo had crossed the line. Najib must take firm action by expelling them from the party – they have been hell-bent on instigating, inciting and inflaming the UMNO membership and trying their damnedest to get their constituents to act against the party president.
Mahathir and Muhyiddin are no saints either. They too would have dipped their hands into the proverbial cookie jar. Therefore, please lah! Stop being sanctimonious. And hypocritical.
Besides, Najib had already ‘explained’ the said issues. The most recent being yesterday’s closed-door session ahead of the UMNO general assembly where he addressed party delegates.
In case, there are still 'blurry' Malaysians who fail to understand the concept of “power corrupts” – let me reiterate that deceiving, cheating and stealing are nothing more than the enterprising exertions of politicians in power. In Malaysia, this is the new normal.
To reinforce his point, he told the UMNO audience that there were other more important matters that the party should focus on. So, all of us must learn to move on. Including the two bugs.
And the English daily went on to report “the rousing support he received from the UMNO crowd who cheered and clapped” – suggesting party leaders are resolute about supporting Najib.
At least, our Prime Minister is not like The Hulk. He doesn’t go around in “smash” mode to vanquish his critics and opponents.

He stayed calm. He has that "What Me Worry?" look about him. Anyway, he already has a stackful of legislation such as the Sedition Act, POTA and SOSMA to do the job.

There seems to be an air of optimism at the Paris Climate Talks. I am not allowing myself to feel the same.
After all, entrenched divisions persist between richer and poorer countries on key negotiating issues. Pledges to tackle climate pollution that were submitted by nations before these talks began were underwhelming, and they would collectively allow global warming to blow well past the dangerous benchmark of 2 degrees C (3.6 degrees F).
For sure, serious problems exist that threaten to bake our planet – and mankind and flora and fauna that must depend upon it.
