RUMInation: Catching up on STORM CLOUDS over 1MDB w'ile Desi Awaits 'The Perfect Storm'

Dear ESteemedReaders (ER), while I was away on Haiti, I revisited many 1MDB events because for Malaysians who still love and believe in NegaraKu's survival, this is the SCANDAL OF THE CENTURY. Everyday we must keep an eye and pray the Almighty would listen to our prayers that the STORM CLOUDS would gather enough INTENSITY to break as that "PERFECT STORM" over Putrajaya so the new-styled UMNO-installed kingdom cometh CRASHING DOWN. Hopefully bringing along all the CLUELESS&USELESS wooden cabinet members along its downward trails spiralling towards the South China Sea!

Here's one article which I had missed in the past; treat this as thy BF repast because our Muslim fellow citizens would have just broken fast in the Holy Month of Ramadan and non-Muslims can sleep on a beautiful Sundae, skip one meal and wake up till the sun's rays shineth on thy sleepy head because you had to work Yesterday -- and have brunch at (7)ELEVEN O'clock, working 4second income, matey? -- as rising costs force everyone of us to tighten our belts the past few years, EXCEPT for these supermen and superwomen and families flying around in ****water-fueled machines.

****WATER in Chinese/Kantonis is pronounced sounding like "SUI" which can either mean Pretty or literally Water but metaphorically means "MONEY", which at DEsi's place/here/hear, refers to the RAKYAT's MONEY -- your money, my money, OUR hard-earned Vitamin M stolen in broad daylight -- so that the unfeeling species from UM-oh-No! can live the Hi-Royale Life!

Raja Bahrin: Najib and family living larger than kings

A Terengganu prince has lambasted Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and his family for allegedly living larger than even the Malay rulers themselves, pointing to the two-month lease of a private jet which was used by the PM's spouse for an estimated RM86 million despite the government owning seven other aircraft.
"At a time when Malaysia faces a serious economic downturn, this is an unforgivable action. The government already owns seven jets, so why the need to lease another jet for RM86 million?" said Raja Bahrin Shah, who is also Kuala Terengganu MP, in a statement.

Just last year in Parliament, Raja Bahrin noted that allocations for poor school children were cut from RM200 million to just under RM10 million.
"But now they can spend RM86 million to lease a jet so the leader who is supposed to care for the rakyat live in the lap of luxury," he said.
The Kuala Terengganu MP stressed that education for Malaysian children, especially the poor should have been a priority. Instead he lamented that those who are to be tomorrow's leaders and administrators are being denied their education and possibly their future, which is their right.
He wondered where is the concern that the Najib government supposedly claim to have for the nation's children.
The prince opined that while we have rulers and kings who are formally installed, there are those who seems to live larger than kings, though not installed.
Raja Bahrin related that even real kings are more circumspect when it comes to spending public funds.
He told of how the late Sultan Ismail of Terengganu who was also the Agong from 1965 to 1970, was careful about the use of public funds for his family members.
Even though the late sultan was close to then prime minister Tunku Abdul Rahman, Raja Bahrin said he was careful not to abuse the national funds and facilities for his family and led a modest life. "Today the wife and children of the prime minister have extraordinary privileges," he added.

Raja Bahrin argued that we never used to hear the wife of Tunku Abdul Rahman called the 'first lady'. Now he lamented that it is the norm for the current PM's wife.
"That is how wide the difference between the leaders of yesterday and today," lamented the prince.
Raja Bahrin also accused Najib of showing disrespect to the Malay rulers when he did not defer the gazetting of the National Security Council Act, despite the Conference of Rulers having sent the bill back for amendments.
