Pro-Najib blogger SeaDemon put the whole thing as it is in his posting,
1MDB:The RM42b Is There
Not so pro-Najib blogger Jebat Must Die, was apparently not so impressed and posted more or less the same thing but added a commentary and some questions he said was not answered by the press statement.
1) Why did 1MDB used a company linked with Jho Low, Brazen Sky to invest in Cayman Islands? What happened to the money?
2) The high financial cost in acquiring those unnecessary loans which according to the books above, costing more than RM5 billion in interests which taxpayers have to bear.
3) Is all the RM4.2 billion ‘investment’ in Aabar all accounted for?
4) How come 1MDB agreed to pay PetroSaudi USD700 million (RM3.2 billion) of interest free loan given just a few days before? This money was banked in into Good Star Ltd’s account. Good Star Ltd belongs to Jho Low.
5) Who is Jho Low and why is he handling all the business deals involving 1MDB. Is he a staff of 1MDB staff or an authorised civil servant in Ministry of Finance?
If you have nothing better to do, I recommend you to read Jebat's full posting
Really, it's that good.
Anyway, for me, those were all just academics now.
I don't think the 1MDB issue really matter anymore, now that,
The worst may be over for Najib
I have given it some thoughts and decided there are actually bigger things coming our way that needed attention such as
I know, the pro-Umno and pro-BN people are cheering this on.
The pro-Najib camp will see this as further relief for their boss from all those 1MDB nonsense and other stuff.
They want Pas to break away from Pakatan, hoping the Islamists party will later on be sorts of an Umno's little brother again in a probable union under the umbrella of Malay unity.
They think their enemies will be weakened by the break-up of Pakatan.
Utusan, NST, TV3 etc had been highlighting what ever little news they can get which could hasten Pas' departure from Pakatan.
But do they realize the danger of Pas being on its own?
Let me put this as simple as I can.
Pas actually will be stronger if it breaks away from Pakatan as then they will be free to go around peddling among the Malays their Islamic credentials such as wanting to set up a truly Islamic state and implementing Islamic laws.
No more that lame negara berkebajikan bullshit.
Now, especially with many Malays getting fed-up with Umno, I think Pas will do very well being that way.
The overwhelming majority of Malays love to be more Islamic, or at least seemingly more Islamic.
Previously, a lot of Malays decided not to support Pas because of their association with particularly DAP which they see as a dastardly Chinese chauvinist party.
Now that out of the way, they don't find Pas such a bad choice anymore.
Remember when the late Pas Mursyidul Am Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat passed away, how the Malays across the political divide treated it as the passing of a saint?
Now Nik Aziz's cute and saintly-looking son
And this guy is smart, articulate and on top of everything, RELIGIOUS.
His rival from Umno is good looking too,
but I doubt KJ can get anywhere close to Nik Abduh's religious appeal.
Malays (especially their girls and ladies) are really into all these religious stuff, okay.
Pas will soon have tones of new recruits once they don't carry the DAP and other baggages anymore.
They will even get rid of the ugly ones among them too once the ulama faction totally takes over the party
If you don't believe me, just wait for the outcome of their party elections on Saturday.
I'm going to miss making fun of Mat Sabu.
Well, how about the non-Muslim votes, especially the Chinese?
Do you seriously think they will abandon DAP in the next general election to prop up BN out of fear of Pas?
I don't think so, okay.
DAP will go around telling the Chinese they need to be more united than ever under its umbrella if they were to survive the upheavals that were happening among the Malays.
It's very unlikely that the Chinese will save BN like they did during the general election in 1999.
The young Chinese voters, conditioned over the years by DAP to hate Umno will not be able to make themselves vote for BN, no matter what.
So, a disunited Umno and its hapless non-Malay allies, will be facing a stronger Pas and strong as ever DAP.
Oh, almost forgot, PKR is also without the Anwar baggage. That will make them less disgusting too among the Malays.
And also, what makes everyone think DAP, Pas and PKR will not work out something after they have defeated BN in the next general election?
For all you know, they had already planned and choreograph all these little quarreling nonsense so that they can become stronger among their respective core support base.
You see, these days the Pakatan people seem to be getting smarter than Umno and BN people.
Okay, Umno people, you all get it or not what I'm trying to tell?
Really, you all should not be too happy that Pas is going on their own.
Most of your safe deposits in the kampung areas will soon be stolen, okay.
I think Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has seen this coming.
That's why he is making all those noises.
