Ku Li is Disappointed Again

A Terence Netto article yesterday revealed that Ku Li’s quest to become Prime Minister was extinguished as abruptly as it started – and it’s all because of money politics! [For the background story, read my blogpost dated June 13, 2013].

Mr Moneybags swooped down on the thirty MPs who had met up with Ku Li and bought over every single one of them for RM5 million each. Naked avarice is prospering here.

This financier – the same villain who was deployed in Perak ito oust the Pakatan Rakyat state government of Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin – was summoned to the rescue as the initial group of 12 MPs, from Sabah and Sarawak, that had met with Tengku Razaleigh in Kuala Lumpur two weeks ago, snowballed by the end of last week to 30 MPs who were willing to take a chance with him.

Rumors have it that the financier who opened his personal treasury to buy the Perak government for Najib Razak in February 2009 was a Chinese. It is really pathetic that the fate of governments in this country could be decided by one Chinese when the rest of the community failed to do so through the ballot box. These scavenging politicians have betrayed their electorates. Their greed have defiled their minds and stolen their conscience.

On Wednesday, I was at AFC House to observe the goings-on there. The occasion was the AFC Toastmasters meeting and it was well-attended. I did not take up any meeting role but that’s fine because the learning can also come from listening and not only from speaking. I would score this meeting a 6 over 10.
