When former Malaysian Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir Mohd. went to overseas for official visits, he would brought back either new and advanced technologies, skillful scientists and researchers or multi-million worth of contracts to help Malaysia grow. But when Abdullah Ahmad Badawi goes overseas, he would visit his private executive yacht, officiate his brother's nasi kandar restaurant, sleep while attending international forums and visiting Islamic mosques. And then, the sleepy premier would create pathetic lies to justify his trip.
Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi sleeps a lot
Not enough of all these wastages of the tax-payer's money, the mentally-challenged Prime Minister of Malaysia (who had to drop out of his economics studies in University of Malaya to take Islamic courses instead) has caused millions of Malaysians to lose their hard-earned money this week. Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had earlier said that the "KL share market could surpass the 1,350-point level", and that "I can see the momentum is already there". The sleepy Prime Minister concluded that “the Chinese community can celebrate the new year in a jovial mood".
But, even when the country is still in the Chinese New Year celebration mood, the KL Composite Index has dropped over 108 points. About RM101 billion of market capitalisation was wiped out in just 4 trading days. Malaysians can indeed "celebrate" having such "I am in control" Prime Minister running the country.
