To do next GE or how to choose your Cabinet Ministers of Malaysia

Had a crazy brainwave after a juicy delicious pear from China (China boleh! Except in football, hehehe).

Ok, we already have a 3 party system in place (3rd party is still wobbly but its there). Shall we the rakyat go another step to test the ability of 1Malaysia to survive the New Economy of 2020?

To step up is so simple. We just need to practice by doing the things we do daily… Yup, just by reading and listening to the news – newspapers, new media, blogs, radio news, talkshows. And, by talking to neighbours, friends at the kopitiam, while shooting pool, fishing, after watching footie, etc.

Then we put ourselves to the test at General Election….. just tick the fella with the most capacity/ability to be a policy making Minister in the Cabinet of Malaysia Government. (regardless of whether they’re from UMNO, MCA, MIC, PKR, DAP, PAS, etc)

You see, every time we voted for a Member of Parliament, indirectly we voted also for a potential Minister of the Cabinet – It is from the pool of Member of Parliaments that the Prime Minister has to choose his team members to sit in the Minister seat.

So, if you’ve ticked the vote box for a silly guy who will raise his toy keris or you’ve voted for an Ah Beng who can’t speak our national language, or a well dressed bumpkin who have absolutely no idea what is national policymaking…. Don’t blame them the stupid ministers for not doing their job. They just weren’t equipped to do ministerial work – they are enjoying the honours of sitting in a nice office because you’ve elevated them into that point of authority to mess up your country’s wealth, education, health and future direction.

Yup, in modern Malaysia, we the voters have voted always for a pool of ministers by elevating the ill-equipped to positions of authority by way of the Peter Principle. (The Peter Principle is the principle that “in a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence.”)

Now, ain’t that a revelation for us dumb dumb voters?

Poor Najib Tun Razak, how now to get the New Economic Model going before the androids consume our employment market?

(Ta…I’m going back for more pears and FIFA finals footie winner analysis.)

The sad, sad KPI problem of NST…

Ouch… NST needs to send its reporters + editors to deep refresher course.

Me a layman also can see no way Malaysia can have such a heart attack drop of 65.3% in tourist arrival for the first 3 months of 2010. Read its edition of 9 April, 2010 (page 2) “Malaysia among cheapest countries to visit” for some fantastic fancies

Aiyoyo…. use your commons sense lar you NST journo guys and gals…

How can Malaysians trust le mainstream newspapers if NST blindly commits silly a blunder like this against its hardworking New Economic Model 1Malaysia government? <cough, cough, ahem…>

Not one, but two factual errors in one news report! hmmmm…. makes one wonder if the newspaper has something against the one helming the second highest national income earning ministry contributing to Malaysia’s national income.

My hands are itching to give a nice present for readers who can spot the other mistake in the NST report.

My dear minister of communication and culture, Mr Rais Yatim, please could you memantau your one of your oldest mainstream newspaper to do its job properly ie simple fact check with source?

We don’t want the trustworthy cyber news to completely dominate the Malaysian information sphere now, do we, sir?
