I no understand

I really don’t understand the logic of living in Malaysia. The way to live in Malaysia is to accept that to live happily, you have to (be) a hypocrite, a racist and a religious bigot. After all, since the entire system is based on hypocrisy, race and religion, you are living in paradise if you are a racist and bigot.

By James Chin, The Malaysian Insider

On the 2009 Pakatan Rakyat Resolution: Brave new Malaysian identity emerging?

How have we come to this historical juncture in which the moral compass of the national leaders are misplaced or even lost and what we are seeing are the consequence of the capitalist system that is rearing its ugly immoral head. We have created monsters out of the freedom we give human beings to profit from the consumerist capitalist system we created out of the fear of socialism and Communism.

Mahathir squandered RM100 bil, says new book

From Malaysiakini

Malaysia has squandered an estimated RM100 billion on financial scandals under the 22-year rule of Dr Mahathir Mohamad, according to a new book about the former prime minister.

According to Barry Wain, author of the soon-to-be launched ‘Malaysian Maverick: Mahathir Mohamad in Turbulent Times’, direct financial losses amounted to about RM50 billion.

NONEThis doubled once the invisible costs, such as unrecorded write-offs, were taken into account. The RM100 billion total loss was equivalent to US$40 billion at then prevailing exchange rates.

Barry, who is a former editor of the Asian Wall Street Journal, says most of the scams, which included a government attempt to manipulate the international tin price and gambling by Bank Negara on global currency markets, occurred in the 1980s.

‘Malaysian Maverick’ is the first independent, full-length study of Mahathir, who retired in 2003 after more than two decades as premier. The book will be published globally next week by Palgrave Macmillan.

Wain writes that the Mahathir administration, which took office in 1981 with the slogan, “clean, efficient, trustworthy”, was almost immediately embroiled in financial scandals that “exploded with startling regularity”.

By the early 1990s, he says, cynics remarked that it had been “a good decade for bad behaviour, or a bad decade for good behaviour”.

Secret military deal with US

The book also reveals that:

  • Mahathir, despite his nationalistic rants, signed a secret security agreement with the United States in 1984 that gave the Americans access to a jungle warfare training school in Johor and allowed them to set up a small-ship repair facility at Lumut and a plant in Kuala Lumpur to repair C-130 Hercules transport aircraft.
  • Mahathir used a secret fund of his ruling Umno to turn the party into a vast conglomerate with investments that spanned almost the entire economy.
  • Mahathir’s Umno financed its new Putra World Trade Centre headquarters in Kuala Lumpur partly with taxpayers money, by forcing state-owned banks to write off at least RM140 million in interest on Umno loans.

Wain, who is now a writer-in-residence at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies in Singapore, however credits Mahathir with engineering the country’s economic transformation, deepening industrialisation and expanding Malaysia’s middle class.

But Mahathir had undermined state institutions, permitted the spread of corruption and failed to provide for Malaysia’s future leadership, he says.

Do you know that:

Last year, Petronas gained a total pre-tax profit of RM86.8 billion and so far, it has earned about RM600 billion. As the surge of international oil prices, it’s profits will as well substantially grow. But the government has reduced fuel subsidies by a wide margin, turning Malaysia into one of the world’s most expensive oil price oil-producing countries. It makes the people wonder where the huge profit of Petronas has gone?

Former Work Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said in the Parliament last year that the government has compensated a total of RM38.5 billion to 20 highway companies. Also, as the government has stopped building the Scenic Bridge in Johor, it has to compensate RM300 million construction cost to the bridge contractor. Isn’t the spending of such huge amount a waste?

Combined they could easily amount to the hundreds of billions of ringgits!

35. Wastages and forward trading of Petronas oil in the 1990s based on the low price of oil then. Since the accounts of Petronas are for the eyes of Prime Minister only, we have absolutely no idea of the amount. Whatever amount, you bet it is COLLOSSAL!

In Time Asia magazine issue on March 15 2004, South East Asian economist at Morgan Stanley in Singapore Daniel Lian, figures “that the country may have lost as much as U$$100 billion (RM320 billion) since the early 1980s to corruption.” Mind you, this is only corruption and it does not include wastages!

All the rakyat’s hard earned money down the drain and they have the audacity to raise fuel prices and asking the people to change their lifestyles.

    I could only sum Mahathir up as the mother of all crooks!!

  2. Alan Goh Says:

    Mr.Barry Wain,you failed to mention that in 1988
    Dr.Mahathir screwed up the Judiciary by sacking the
    Lord President,Tun Salleh Abbas.As a result,we have
    this joker lawyer,V.K.Lingam of the now famous quote,
    it looks like me,it sounds like me but not me.And Correct,Correct,Correct over the appointment of
    Lord President post,mind you.

    What about Malaysia educational system,Dr.Mahathir
    did away with English and replaced it with Bahasa
    Malaysia.Only after the end of his 22 yrs tenure as PM did he realised that Malaysia education is a total
    failure and tried replacing English as a compulsory
    subject for maths and science.Mr.Barry Wain,you only
    mentioned the financial loss caused by Dr.Mahathir.What about the judiciary,educational etc.etc.When once Malaysia,a country rich in resources,whose currency was RM0-90cts to Singapore
    $1/-in the sixties, is now the opposite,RM2.45 to S$1-00 all these are the legacies of the great Dr.Mahathir.

  3. Tony Wong Says:

    Will Tun be happy with the release of this book? I doubt it.

  4. sam Says:

    You may call him great or the father of development. But to me he is a crook of the highest order. He burned everything in his way. Corruption, sacking the judiciary, screwed the pdrm and treated everyone with contempt. His legacyh left behind a corrupted govt.He also lined the pockets of the ruling elite and his croonies. May God pass judgement on him for all the evil that he did to this country. Lastly he divided the races and till today plays the racial card. I wait for him to kick the bucket and rot/burn in HELL for all his evel doings.

  5. backStreetGluttons Says:

    An interesting analysis which if proven correct should give Mahathir the noble award of
    “Father of Bankruptcy” (Malaysia), or alternatively induct him into the “Malaysian Hall of Untold Shame” , alongside the nice guy Najib

  6. banu Says:

    He is none other than as follows:
    1. Father of corruption,
    2. He systematically polarised Malaysian society into
    the Muslim half & the non Muslim half,
    3. Damaged Malaysian society (permanently) by allowing
    foreign workers into the country, without proper
    procedural guideline,
    4. Law & Order and discipline completely eroded in
    Malaysian society (permanently),
    5. The most despicable person ever to be born in
    6. Etc, etc, etc …….

  7. MOIG Says:

    Hopefully, the locals who applaud this man and kissed the ground that he walks on can realise and understand at what cost the country paid during his regime. Benefits? To his cronies for sure.

  8. Hamba Says:

    This is what he’s afraid of. All his wrong doing being laid bare for all malaysian to see and his name will forever remain in infamy. And he’s still alive when it happen!
    I for one, am very happy for this and may all Malaysian see Mahathir as he truly was and is (a calamity and disaster for Malaysia)!

  9. Lawa Says:

    We Malays consider this half-breed the scum of society. Unfit to mention in the presence of decent adults. Go to HELL mamak-kutty.
