Mr Moneybags, Najib Razak

PM Najib Razak is so blardy blessed because he has this uncanny ability to attract money. Humongous sums.
 
According to Sarawak Report on January 17, 2016, much more money had been secretly secreted into Najib’s bank accounts.
 
One UMNO insider had supposedly told the online news resource that: “He didn’t just take the famous RM2.6 billion, it was RM4 billion and more”! And that all the party bigwigs now know.
 
It seems that Najib had received a further $170 million from a British Virgin Island company named Blackstone Asia Real Estate Partners Limited, which was allegedly linked to billionaire Jho Low.
 
And I am not sure if the above included the RM42 million that allegedly came from state-owned SRC International, which had passed through intermediaries Gandingan Mentari Sdn Bhd and Ihsan Perdana Sdn Bhd – if I am not mistaken, the deposit was first mentioned by The Wall Street Journal on July 03, 2015.
 
Anyway, this was no heresy because in Najib’s written statement of reply filed on January 12, 2016, to former MCA president Ling Liong Sik statement of defense in his defamation suit against Ling – he had admitted to receiving the money but asked that Ling prove where it came from! WTF!
 
On Tuesday, Celtic overwhelmed Hamilton 8-1.
 
The latter were extremely lucky that it was not a whole lot worse. Eight goals could have been a dozen or even 14 – and this is no crock. Michael McGovern made some good saves in the Hamilton goal and Celtic wasted not a few opportunities.
 
Mikael Lustig (4), Nir Bitton (9) and Tom Rogic (10) contributed three goals for Celtic in a mere 10 minutes. Then Leigh Griffiths added two more – in the twenty-second and thirty-fourth minutes. James Forrest scored to make it six in the fifty-third minute and Griffiths completed his hat-trick one minute later. Eamonn Brophy scored Hamilton's solitary goal in the seventy-third minute before Callum McGregor drove in number eight sixteen minutes later.
 
It was the biggest win since the formation of the Scottish Premiership in 2013 and the biggest for Celtic since their 9-0 victory over Aberdeen in November 2010, and it means the Scottish Premiership leaders are six points clear of second-placed Aberdeen.
