    One ready reply to Ang Tiunama Peng who would surely come in here with his nonsense comment –

    Regarding “Dr M’s Superb Logic” – as far as madman Ang Tunama Peng is concerned, where got logic?

    A madman simply has no logic.

        It maybe in Mahathir’s time that the approval to purchase the submarine was made. But who did the procurement and who appointed Razak Baginda as commission agent ? Who appointed Altantuya as the interpreter ? Since Malaysia refused to do an investigation, let the French do it, and we can be assured that there will not be any interference in the investigation.

          “It maybe in Mahathir’s time that the approval to purchase the submarine was made. But who”

          “But who”?!

          You’ve just said it was that Kerala Keling pretend-Malay Mugathir McKutty.

          It is another disaster made by Mugathir McKutty, he should have been less busy thinking about his cut or his son’s cut, he should have been busy watching any “But who” in that sinking enterprise!

          And if you want to genuinely follow what the French say, they’ve already said “Altantuya as the interpreter” was never in France!

          • Ang Tao Peng says:

            That “SeaDemon” take on Scorpenes is well worth a read, interestingly he mentioned Kerala Keling Mugathir McKutty’s non-sacked Menteri Besar son, who should be investigated when Najib looks into the huge wealth of the Mugathir Kerala Dynasty.

            Insider Submarine Trading?

            Najib Razak’s reply to Wan Azizah on the Scorpene issue in 2008
            In 2008, then Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence, in his reply to Wan Azizah confirmed that all terms and approvals of the procurements of the two units of Scorpene submarines and 18 units of fighter jets were made in accordance with Government procurement procedures and could only be executed by the Finance Ministry.

            The inking of the deal to purchase the Scorpene submarines was made in June 2002 when a now-amnesiac Prime Minister was also the Finance Minister then.

            In yesterday’s posting I mentioned about Ibrahim mohd Noor being Daim Zainuddin’s proxy and ran Perimekar Sdn Bhd with Mohzani Mahathir out of a bungalow at Jalan Lembah Ledang off Jalan Duta in Kuala Lumpur. The fact is that very few people know that Ibrahim had an office there, which also happened to be the base for the creation of Ibrahim’s venture into media and advertising via Blue Inc Sdn Bhd.

            Being close to Daim gave him the advantage of ‘privileged knowledge’ and knew when Mahathir finally agreed to to the submarine program. He teamed up with Mokhzani Mahathir and used Perimekar as the vehicle for this venture. A nucleus team was formed and started on the proposal. They went to a few reputable German shipbuilders like HDW and Blohm & Voss.

            However, at the end of 2001, Daim and Mahathir had a fall out. Lim Kit Siang, Mahathir’s now best friend, was very observant of this event and commented that the Mahathir-Daim fall-out is not over policy differences on whether to end the policy of bail-outs and buy- outs.

            Rather, he claimed, it was “over differences as to who should be the beneficiaries of such government bail-outs and buy-outs at a time when the government must pick and choose the beneficiaries as public resources are stretched to the limit and are incapable of saving all crony companies and individuals.”

            Of course, Lim Kit Siang being an old man although not yet as old as Mahathir, suffers from selective amnesia and seems to have forgiven Mahathir for all his sins to the people of Malaysia – as long as the position that gives power is within his grasp.

            As a result of the fall out, Ibrahim had to give up Perimekar and his quest to supply the Royal Malaysian Navy with its submarines, and Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera (LTAT) took this up.

            At the time, Boustead was planning to take over Amin Shah’s Business Focus Group, in particular the PSC Naval Dockyard Sdn Bhd. Amin Shah, a known Daim crony, privatised the Royal Malaysian Navy’s dockyard during Daim’s tenure as the Finance Minister and injected it into a company he took over, Penang Shipyard Co.

            At the time, PSC Naval Dockyard Sdn Bhd already had the contract to supply six out of 27 new-generation patrol vessels for the RMN, which happened to be a deal between PSC Naval Dockyard Sdn Bhd’s joint-venture with German shipbuilder Blohm & Voss.

            It seemed convenient for Perimekar then to also have another deal with a German shipbuilder especially Blohm & Voss.

            After Ibrahim was out of the picture and Abdul Razak Baginda’s wife was in Perimekar, the latter shopped around for a suitable submarine. The DCNS and Thales at the time had a product which was the Scorpene submarine, considered a superior diesel-electric attack submarine at the time and was constructing for the Chilean Navy.

            In early 2002, the Malaysian Defence Industry Council was hosted at PSC Naval Dockyard Sdn Bhd in Lumut, and Amin Shah tried to peddle two used Dutch submarines to Najib Razak who was then the Defence Minister. The submarines, the Tijgerhaai (Tigershark) and Zwaardvis (Swordfish) were ambitiously bought by Amin Shah. However, Najib Razak was not interested in having two rustbuckets for the RMN.

            The Scorpene had incorporated systems that are in use with the French Navy’s nuclear attack submarines, also built by DCNS and Thales. The proposal also included the very potent Blackshark II torpedoes and MBDA SM39 Exocet anti-ship missiles.

            Abdul Razak Baginda also managed to package together the elite turnkey submarine training with the DCI-NAVFCO at Brest. Coupled with extensive exercise exposure of the RMN officers and men with their French counterparts in the submarine force at Brest gave the RMN men an exposure to the French Navy’s role and operations as well as tactics used in NATO.

            Once the deal was inked in June 2002, Razak never went to Cherbourg again.

            And Altantuya? She only existed a few years after the deal was inked. Even a renowned Najib Razak-hater wrote in his book that Abdul Razak Baginda first met in 2004, a good two years after the Scorpene deal was done.

            It is interesting to note that the RMN had sent its first batch of officers for submarine training with the Royal Australian Navy in 1992. They earned their submariners’ dolphin a year later.

            And guess which Minister of Defence it was then who mooted the idea of having a submarine force?

            The then-Defence Minister replying to a question by Lim Kit Siang in Parliament
            So was the plan for Perimekar laid out like a carpet a while before the then Prime Minister gave the go ahead to work out a submarine program for the RMN?

            It is impossible for the Prime Minister or Finance Minister then to not know about the purchase of the submarines. This is not like buying sweets at a Mamak shop. They cost billions of Ringgits that would still need the approval of the Finance Ministry.

            So is Mahathir not afraid of the hereafter peddling one lie after another?

            Borrowing the words of a certain Opposition office-holder:

            “Allah Knows!”. ”

            “Insider Submarine Trading?”

          • Ang Tao Peng says:

            And more, and the more pertinent, from “SeaDemon”:

            “Scorpene: Who Is Who And What Is What?”

            “Now that I have your attention on the Scorpene issue that U-Turn Mahathir has conveniently forgotten (like the PKFZ issue and others), let me take you down memory lane to tell you more about the whole issue. There will be a few corrections pertaining to the timeline as per the previous posting.

            Everyone who talks about the Scorpene deal talks about Abdul Razak Baginda and a company called Perimekar Sdn Bhd that supposedly had gotten millions of Ringgits in kickbacks pertaining to the submarine deal.

            The original proponents of the Malaysian submarine program were Mokhzani Mahathir and Ibrahim Mohd Noor (who was then then CEO of newly-listed BERNAS, acting on behalf of Daim Zainuddin). They proposed the German Type 212 (an Air-Independent Propulsion version of the Type 209 design) through a company called…wait for it…Perimekar Sdn Bhd, then operating drom a bungalow in Jalan Lembah Ledang off Jalan Semantan in Kuala Lumpur.

            However, in 1999 the then-Chief of the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN), Admiral Tan Sri Abu Bakar Jamal convinced the then Prime Minister (guess who) at the Avillion Layang-Layang Resort for a submarine program purchasing a very capable submarine.

            The Prime Minister bought the idea when Admiral Abu Bakar said, to the effect of, “Imagine we (the RMN) could operate in stealth as far as the Sea of Japan and the North Indian Ocean, without anyone finding out.” The green light was given then.

            Sometime in September 2001, the ownership of Perimekar Sdn Bhd was transferred to the Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera (LTAT) through Boustead Bhd’s special purpose vehicle called Ombak Laut Sdn Bhd. The Board of Directors of Perimekar Sdn Bhd then were Rear Admiral (Rtd) Hussin Tamby and Mazlina Makhzan, Abdul Razak Baginda’s wife.

            The company, together with officials from the RMN sifted through more than 17,000 pages (28 volumes) of technical documents of the Scorpene. After this point, as mentioned in my previous posting, the Secretary-General of Treasury took over the final commercial negotiations. MINDEF, Perimekar et al no longer had any role to play.

            The deal to purchase two Scorpene-type submarines from DCNS and Thales was inked in June 2002, when the then-Prime Minister was also the Finance Ministry who would have given the final approval for the procurement. It was signed by all the relevant parties at the Ballroom of the Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur.

            The Ministry of Finance was represented by the Secretary-General of Treasury Tan Sri Samsuddin Hitam while LTAT was represented by Dato’ Lodin Wok Kamaruddin.

            The consideration for the deal was partly in kind – export of palm oil to France. The final consideration of the deal came from a condition laid by the Ministry of Transport which the French agreed to the day before the deal was inked – for Malaysia Airlines to get the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th landing rights at the Charles de Gaulle (CDG) in Paris.

            So, now you know the story behind the Scorpene. Now you know why it is impossible for anyone involved to forget the deal that was made 15 years ago.

            Anyone who does forget should not be in politics as it could be a sign of a deterioration of the brain function. And these persons should remember Allah before he finally forgets Who Allah Is.”

            Very clear possibility that the person authorizing the procurement (usually the Minister of Defence) and the person doing the appointing of Razak Baginda as commission agent were different people.

            But the barking dog bastard Tiunama Ang jumped at Tun Dr Mahathir. Although he has said that Najib is not worth RM1.00, implying that the possibility is Najib.

            And the bastard Ang Tiunama did not state details or provide the link to the “French (saying) they’ve already said “Altantuya as the interpreter” was never in France.”

            And the bugger Ang Tiunama has been known to be constantly lying, cheating and conning, as explained in his CV.

            Ang Tiuama Peng’s CV –

            Constantly Lying, Cheating and Conning Schizophrenic Red Bean old man “Ang” –

            1. At first, he cheated on his blogging name, using what appeared to be the full name of a Chinese, presumably in order to gain respect for him as a blogger. When threatened to have his name checked against the list of graduates of “top UK universities” that he claimed to have degrees from, he panicked, and declared that Ang Tao Peng is not his real name.

            2. He claimed to be graduates of not just “two top UK universities”, but also of “two top US universities”. He is mad. Nobody can ever be like that. But when told that, he simply kept quiet. He doesn’t provide proof, substantiation or justification. Saying he’s not obliged to do so. So, we are “obliged” to deem him as Lying, Cheating and Conning Schizophrenic Red Bean old man Ang.

            3. He claimed to be descended from “a clan of bankers and industrialists of East China”, denied being descended from “coolies” of South China brought in by British colonialists in the 19th century onwards. Yet, saying “his folks” having migrated to Europe bringing “a lot of wealth”, he is left plonked in a non-industrialist Malaysia and living in Sarawak (he claimed, though likely to be in Penang, a Red Bean, using so many names and pretending to be so many personalities. He knows the term “multiple personalty disorder” and the symptoms well).

            4. In the beginning of his foray in this blog, he portrayed the image of, and did say he was a retiree, an old man, expressing the style of the usual Red Beans gang (those engaged by DAP to terrorize blogosphere during PRU13 election campaign, writing in uncontrolled fashion, often rude, abusive and vulgar, wild, unsubstantiated and unjustified claims and allegations). But when accused of being among the hooligans that caused the race riots of 1969, he denied being around, physically and age-wise, at that time.

            5. He lied, cheated and conned so often that he even forgot what he lied and conned. And got caught several times in the process. I’m therefore quite sure readers would treat what he writes here as jokes and would just enjoy the fun and entertainment on and out of the schizophrenic old man Ang who stubbornly refused to take his pills.

            6. It’s blokes like this “Ang” bugger who bring down the image of the Chinese in this country.

        So Mahathir’s earlier claim of a meeting with Zahid in 2015 did indeed take place. Zahid may have a recording of their conversations but looks like it is all about a plan to remove Najib. The plan might have been hatched by the ‘leader’ but who requested for it? And blessings from Najib to meet Mahathir? Could be true but definitely not for Zahid to do a brutus on his boss.

    Report: Two reasons why BN may lose GE14 – FMT

    Global Risk Insights says the Mahathir factor, coupled with the 1MDB scandal, could finally bring the opposition into power.

    KUALA LUMPUR: Two factors could turn the tide against the ruling government in the next general election: Dr Mahathir Mohamad leading the opposition and the 1MDB scandal.

    This is the assessment of Global Risk Insights, a world-leading publication for political risk news and analysis, which was founded at the London School of Economics.

    Saying the next general election is significant because of the return of Dr Mahathir to active politics and the 1MDB scandal which continues to dog Prime Minister Najib Razak, it concludes that these two factors may be able to lead the opposition to an unprecedented victory.

    Noting that the ruling coalition, the Barisan Nasional, has never lost an election and that Malaysia’s top post features an unbroken line of prime ministers from Umno, it says their continued control is no longer so certain.

    The Barisan Nasional has gradually lost vote share over the past several elections.
    In 2004, the BN won 63.8% of the vote and in 2008, this figure slipped to 51.4%. In the following general election, in 2013, the BN only won 47.4% of the popular vote.

    However, it maintained control of parliament, largely due to the way in which electoral boundaries are drawn.

    The report says it is significant that Dr Mahathir, who served as prime minister between 1981 and 2003, has come out of retirement at age 92 to join the opposition coalition alongside Anwar Ibrahim, whom he had previously jailed, to defeat the party he once led.

    Dr Mahathir is seen as a unifying figure for the fragmented opposition coalition, and someone whose leadership could help win over previously inaccessible rural constituencies.

    The other factor is Najib’s association with the 1MDB scandal. US investigators have linked money allegedly taken from 1MDB to the accounts of his friends and associates.
    Najib has consistently denied he is party to any embezzlement of 1MDB funds.

    The report says GE14 could be a defining moment for Malaysian politics which has been plagued with corruption scandals, including the 1MDB scandal, the Felda Global Ventures scandal, the National Feedlot scandal and the Port Klang Free Trade Zone scandal.

    It notes that people are increasingly becoming angry with systemic cronyism, corruption and inequality.

    In the past, it notes, strong economic growth, limited information sharing capacity, and a weaker press may have suppressed Malaysian voter concerns about corruption.
    But today, better information sharing capacity combined with the opposition’s attempt to weaponise corruption allegations may turn the tide against the BN.

      Malaysia will never be able to find the truth unless there is a change of government. Every denial to each of the all stations may sound silly but these are hard evidence. The nation can ill afford the bill but someone has to come up with the money. The miscalculation was regrettable but crime does not pay. The plot will always leave the door opened. That explains the extent of repercussions including the destruction of nation governance and controls. Opportunity costs will be huge, ultimately tax payers will pay the price. They should be angry.

    LONDON — Malaysia’s scandal-hit sovereign wealth fund has missed a July deadline to make about $629 million in payments as part of a settlement with an Abu Dhabi government fund, a setback to efforts to clean up a years-long financial mess.

    The payments were part of a deal reached in April by the funds, 1Malaysia Development Berhad and the International Petroleum Investment Company of Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.

    1MDB said on Tuesday that it planned to make the payments this month.

    The two sides had been in disagreement over $3.5 billion in bonds that the Abu Dhabi fund backed in 2012 as part of an effort by the Malaysian government to buy power plants. An arbitration panel in London is overseeing that dispute.

    As part of an international investigation into the Malaysian fund, officials in the United States have asserted that nearly $1.45 billion from the bond sales had been illegally redirected, and that some of the cash ended up in the hands of friends and associates of the prime minister of Malaysia, Najib Razak, and with executives from Abu Dhabi’s sovereign wealth fund. Mr. Najib has denied any wrongdoing.

    In a further complication, 1MDB defaulted on the bonds, leaving Malaysia and Abu Dhabi arguing over who would pick up the tab. They eventually agreed that 1MDB would pay $1.2 billion to the Abu Dhabi fund by the end of this year, and that it would assume all interest and principal payments on the bonds.

    1MDB said that it was waiting for payments that had been due at the end of July as a result of a sale of assets. “Due to the need for additional regulatory approvals, the receipt of those funds has been delayed to August,” 1MDB said.

    • Anonymous says:

      Unrelated to this dispute, 1MDB remains the subject of investigations in Singapore, Switzerland, the United States and other jurisdictions. American officials are seeking to recoup $1 billion they say was ultimately spent in the United States.

      There has been fallout elsewhere, too.

      Goldman Sachs, which helped with the bond sale, put Tim Leissner, its main banker on the 1MDB account, on leave last year and he subsequently left the bank.

            Delusions of grandeur

            You always think you are the very good in everything – qualification, knowledge, wealth, etc. Those are our delusions of grandeur –

            In the past you frequently claimed about “my vast superiority”, claimed to have vast wealth, including “a huge colonial style Baba mansion” in Singapore, properties in Jkarta, now claiming to also have properties in UK. He had claimed to have degrees from “four top US and UK universities”. All are bullshits.

            Googling the words “delusion of grandeur” produces the following:

            – Delusions of grandeur are false beliefs held by an individual

            – Delusions of grandeur are associated with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), which is a mental health diagnosis

            – Grandiosity is a symptom of the manic episodes of Bipolar Disorder: elevated (heightened), expansive (grand, superior) or irritable mood. This elevated mood occurs when not depressed. In mania … increased activity or energy … needs only three hours sleep (at times he blogs at 3 am) instead of the usual seven

            Other examples of delusion of grandeur exhibited by Red Bean old man Ang are his claims of:

    “Pro-bumiputera policy tough to scrap”

    “Almost 30 years after policy was supposed to end in Malaysia, many still feel they need it
    Shannon Teoh Malaysia Bureau Chief In Kuala Lumpur

    Malaysia introduced its affirmative action New Economic Policy (NEP) in 1971 after deadly race riots in 1969, with then Prime Minister Abdul Razak Hussein saying the policy would end in 1990.

    The policy was geared towards eliminating poverty and socio-economic restructuring by increasing the wealth of the bumiputera, the poorest demographic. The economic gap between the politically dominant Malays and the Chinese fuelled anger over the ruling Umno’s losses, leading to the riots.

    But today, 27 years after 1990, no end is in sight for the policy. Worse, the NEP has led to a sense of entitlement among many Malays and their leaders.

    By many measurements, the NEP has been a success four decades after the plan was unveiled by Tun Abdul Razak, the father of current Prime Minister Najib Razak.

    The government claims to have eradicated poverty and the bumiputera share of the economy has multiplied tenfold even by the most conservative estimates, and the Malay middle class had grown rapidly and is surefooted.

    The bumiputera (sons of the soil) consist of the Malays, indigenous Orang Asli and dozens of native tribes in Sabah and Sarawak.

    Under the NEP, the bumiputera are given a generous quota to enter public universities, enjoy cheaper housing and get many government facilities to help them in business such as low-cost loans.

    But even now, Malaysian Chinese continue to enjoy better salaries and more personal wealth, even if the gap has narrowed.

    To its critics, the NEP has been hijacked today by well-connected Malay politicians and their friends to enrich themselves.

    Centre for Policy Initiatives chief executive Lim Teck Ghee – whose 2006 paper claimed bumiputera corporate equity had far surpassed the NEP’s 30 per cent target – told The Straits Times that the “Chinese bogeyman” is trotted out so that the “gravy train” for Umno’s political elite “keeps chugging along”.

    The government itself admitted that by 2005, the bumiputera had sold off RM52 billion of the RM54 billion worth of shares reserved for them by public-listed companies, instead of reaping the longer-term rewards of capital.

    The call for the NEP to be abandoned, or at least tweaked, to ensure that the poor of all ethnicities are helped has fallen on deaf ears in the corridors of power.

    In fact, even state-funded Khazanah Research Institute (KRI) found last October that Malaysian Indians – not Malays or the other bumiputera races – had the worst upward mobility.

    It also showed a gender gap – sons are 3.6 times more upwardly mobile than daughters, who were also thrice as likely to do worse than their parents.

    “There are clear signs that there needs to be greater education access in rural areas. You can help people whether it is race-based, needs-based, by gender and the urban-rural divide,” KRI managing director Charon Mokhzani told ST.

    Dr Muhammed Abdul Khalid, the lead researcher for the KRI study, told ST that “a needs-based affirmative action is not a replacement. They complement. It is not just who you help, but how you help as well”.

    While having the NEP around forever might sound good, the “subsidy mentality” could have the opposite effect of weakening bumiputera self-resolve to climb without crutches.

    Dr Johan Saravanamuttu of the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, who co-edited a 2013 book on the NEP, said: “Malays are not being equipped with sustainable tools to bridge the gap with the Chinese.”

    Then again, there is another important dimension in the NEP debate. The reality is that abolishing the pro-bumiputera policy is politically impossible, as many Umno leaders and many Malays still feel they need the NEP.

    Former prime ministers, as well as Datuk Seri Najib, could talk about tweaking the policy but not deleting it.

    Mr Najib, at last year’s Umno general assembly, went a step further. He warned the Malays that if Umno lost power, various pro-Malay and Islamic bodies would be dismantled by the opposition.”

      “the NEP has led to a sense of entitlement among many Malays and their leaders.”

      It’s stupid, arrogant and ultra kiasu not to appreciate that the NEP was drawn from the Secial Position of the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak, and that was enshrined as Article 153 of the Constitution as the consideration or the quid pro quo for the Malays agreeing to the citizenship right for the pendatangs.

      Questioning that will attract questioning the citizenship right.

      Indeed, there has already been questioning of the validity of the citizenship of those who got it without Malay Language tests and other formalities.

      It must be pointed out that dwelling on these will not be helpful for national unity in this country.

      But look at the blokes who raised these issues and the bastard who copy pasted the articles trying to propagate the questioning and counter-questioning of the Special Position of the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak and the citizenship right of the pendatangs.

    Economist’s view:

    “Race-based affirmative action is failing poor Malaysians

    The government reserves even mobile-phone stalls for people of indigenous descent”

    “THERE is something odd about MARA Digital, a cluster of stalls selling laptops, mobiles and other gizmos on the second floor of a shopping centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s multicultural capital. No ethnic-Chinese or -Indian entrepreneurs are allowed to do business here. Spots in the market are reserved for Malays, the country’s majority race. The year-old venue was set up with subsidies from the government, which insists that its experiment in segregated shop-holding has been a big success. It has already launched an offshoot in Shah Alam, a nearby city, and talks of opening at least five more branches this year.

    This project is just one recent outcome of racially discriminatory policies which have shaped Malaysian society for more than 50 years. Schemes favouring Malays were once deemed essential to improve the lot of Malaysia’s least wealthy racial group; these days they are widely thought to help mostly the well-off within that group, while failing the poor and aggravating ethnic tensions. Yet affirmative action persists because it is a reliable vote-winner for the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), the Malay party that has dominated government since independence. Malays are more than half of the population, so their views carry weight.

    Last month UMNO launched a fresh batch of race-based giveaways. Harried by claims that it allowed billions to be looted from 1MDB, a state investment firm, and preparing for an election that may be called this year, the party looks disinclined to consider reform.

    Affirmative action in Malaysia began shortly after the departure in the 1950s of British colonial administrators, who had opened the cities to immigrant merchants and labourers from India and China but largely preferred to keep Malays toiling in the fields. The practice accelerated after 1969, when a race riot in the capital killed scores. (Most of the victims were Chinese.) The New Economic Policy (NEP) of 1971 had two goals: to reduce absolute poverty across all races, and to boost in particular the prospects of Malays, whose average income at the time was roughly half that of their Chinese compatriots.

    A temporary eternity

    Although the NEP’s authors believed affirmative action would be needed for only 20 years, the practice has continued ever since, as such “temporary” policies typically have in other countries. Malaysia’s bumiputeras, which means “sons of the soil” and which refers both to Malays and to a number of indigenous groups deemed deserving of a leg-up, have accumulated a panoply of privileges. Some of these are enshrined in legislation; others are left unwritten. These include quotas for places at public universities; preferment for government jobs; discounts on property purchases and access to a reserved slice of public share offerings.

    Since the NEP’s inception Malaysia’s economy has grown enormously. Its people are now the third-richest in South-East Asia, behind only Singapore and oil-soaked Brunei. Affirmative action has helped to narrow the difference between the incomes of Malays and other races. But pro-bumiputera schemes are almost never means-tested, so their benefits have accrued disproportionately to already wealthy urbanites, allowing poverty among the neediest Malays to persist.

    Meanwhile the lure of the public sector—which was expanded to create more posts for bumiputeras, and in which Malays are now vastly over-represented—has sapped entrepreneurial vigour among Malays, as has a welter of grants and soft loans for bumiputera firms. Race-based entry criteria have lowered standards at Malaysia’s public universities; so has the flight of non-bumiputera academics who sense that promotions are no longer linked to merit. These days Chinese and Indians largely end up studying in private institutions or abroad, in effect segregating tertiary education. Many of those who leave the country do not return.

    None of this is lost on the ruling party. For some years UMNO was split between hardline supporters of affirmative action (like the demonstrators pictured above) and moderates dismayed by the distortions it has brought. In an unusually candid paper published in 2010, the new government of Najib Razak, the prime minister, admitted that affirmative action had created an “entitlement culture and rentier behaviour”. It mooted swapping race-based policies for action intended to lift the incomes of Malaysia’s poorest 40%, regardless of ethnicity. Yet within months that suggestion was quietly abandoned.

    Since then the party’s thinkers have grown more risk-averse. UMNO almost fell from power at a general election in 2013, when minority voters abandoned its coalition partners. Since early 2015 it has been trying to distract attention from the theft of billions of dollars from 1MDB (American investigators allege that $681m of the state firm’s money was paid to the prime minister, a charge Mr Najib denies). Neither of these near-death experiences appears to have prompted much soul-searching. Instead the party is trying to preserve support among Malay voters by reinforcing pro-Malay policies and by building bridges with PAS, an Islamist opposition party that is growing more extreme.

    Optimists argue that the government has not completely abandoned reform. An efficiency drive has called attention to the public sector’s bloated state, even if the material gains from the effort are unclear. And whereas UMNO’s leaders once boasted of their desire to create Malay millionaires, recent schemes are more likely to aid small and medium-sized firms. But this is all rather modest—particularly when ugly racial rhetoric is on the rise.

    Malaysia’s failing system of race-based preferences will probably not attract the criticism it deserves in the run-up to the next general election, which Mr Najib may call later this year and which he is likely to win. Opposition parties are keen to show poor rural Malays that UMNO’s policies have shortchanged them, but tend not to openly bash the notion of race-based affirmative action. Egged on by bigots, some Malays have come to see their economic privileges as a right earned by their ancestors when they first settled the territory, not as a temporary leg-up. Meritocracy and the distribution of benefits based on need remain distant prospects.”

      What “racially discriminatory policies”?

      The British colonialists giving you all in the towns schools both at primary and secondary levels were not discriminatory against the Malays, the majority in this country? In the kampongs, the Malays were given only primary schools and far inbetween the kampongs. On top of those, English schools in the towns, too – English was the passport for success at that time, enjoyed mostly by the Chinese only.

      Then the various “tongkats” given by the British to the Chinese in the form of mining land leases, mining licenses, lottery and gaming licenses, easy money for the accumulation of capital for doing many kinds of businesses. And rubber and tin trading licenses.

      None of those were given to the Malays, no attempt at all to help or encourage the Malays to do business – the Malays who don’t have a culture of doing business, only a culture of “berdagang” – barter trading, no element of weights and measures, no profit taking and accumulation of wealth. Damn the British colonialists.

      And what do you call giving citizenship right to the pendatangs and their descendants that the Malays agreed to when framing the Constitution of the country? Free goodwill? One way gesture? All the time? Utter nonsense.

    “The root cause of Malaysia’s current troubles is ketuanan Melayu”

    Can’t really argue or fault most of the article… relevant as ever…!

    “The Costs of Malay Supremacy”
    By JAMES CHIN

    “KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Malaysia is in crisis. The economy is faltering and the government is floundering, struggling to explain away unprecedented financial scandals. Critics ascribe these problems to a lack of transparency and good governance, but these are merely symptoms. The root cause of Malaysia’s current troubles is ketuanan Melayu: the ideology of Malay supremacy espoused by the United Malays National Organization (UMNO), the party that has dominated the country’s politics for more than six decades.

    Malaysia has a vast system of institutionalized preferences for Malays, the majority of the population, which grants them economic and other privileges over ethnic Chinese, Indians and other minorities. Although in place for more than four decades, these policies have failed to significantly help poor Malays. At the same time, they have created a grand quid pro quo between other segments of the Malay population and the UMNO government: For fear of losing their advantages, beneficiaries of the preferences don’t hold UMNO to account when it falls short.

    Malaysia’s affirmative action program was supposed to right a historical wrong. In 1969, deadly racial riots broke out between Malays and Chinese in several cities, and the country was placed under emergency rule. UMNO blamed British colonists for the unrest, claiming that until Malaya’s independence in 1957 they had sidelined Malays and favored the Chinese in the economy. In 1970, the population of Malaysia was about 53 percent Malay, 36 percent Chinese and 11 percent Indian, yet Malays held only 2.4 percent of all shares in the stock market, whereas the Chinese controlled 27 percent (Indians had about 1 percent, with the bulk, more than 63 percent, in foreign hands).

    When the state of emergency was lifted in 1971, the government promulgated the New Economic Policy (NEP), giving Malays (officially called bumiputera) preferential treatment in all spheres of public life. Senior positions in the civil service were reserved for Malays. Special schools were established for them exclusively. It was decided bumiputera should control 30 percent of all corporate equity by 1990. Malay home buyers were entitled to a discount of 5 to 15 percent on new developments.

    The NEP was ostensibly designed to uplift Malays, but it soon became a means for UMNO to cement political support, creating a rentier system with dubious economic results.

    During the 1980s and 1990s, when Mahathir Mohamad was prime minister, major infrastructure projects — the North-South Expressway, the Petronas Towers, the planned city of Putrajaya — were awarded to Malay companies with ties to UMNO. A vast privatization program also multiplied connections between the party and Malay big business, as many public utilities became so-called government-linked companies, or G.L.C.s, tasked with representing and promoting bumiputera interests.

    Today, G.L.C.s are said to control about one-third of the capitalization of the stock exchange. They vastly dominate banking and finance, transportation, utilities, the oil and gas sector and retail trade. According to a 2013 report by the Asian Development Bank, G.L.C.s were stifling competition in many areas of the economy and deterring private investment.

    Yet even periods of financial turmoil have not convinced the government to rethink the NEP or dismantle the preferential economy. UMNO elites could not suffer reforms for fear of losing their own privileges or the support of other beneficiaries.

    When Prime Minister Najib Razak came to power in 2009, he convened a group of economists to devise a new economic plan. The panel recommended replacing the existing racial preferences with need-based policies that would help any Malaysian, regardless of ethnicity, at the bottom 40 percent of the population in terms of household income. After encountering strong opposition from within UMNO, Mr. Najib dropped the idea and instead established yet another agency, Teraju, to encourage bumiputera participation in the economy.

    Promoting Malay supremacy not only undermines government accountability; it makes for unsound economics. Take Proton, the national car project that was started in 1983. For years, a slew of tariff and nontariff barriers have been applied to foreign cars in order to keep the made-in-Malaysia Proton comparatively cheap. But Proton, the car, is of poor quality and its production has yet to reach an economy of scale. And Proton, the company, has asked the Malaysian government for some $700 million in subsidies. Yet Mr. Mahathir, now the chairman of Proton, argues that the state must continue to protect it because it buys parts mostly from Malay vendors and employs almost only Malays.

    Or consider companies undertaking I.P.O.s, which are required to reserve a set percentage of their shares for Malay interests. (The requirement used to be 30 percent; now, it is 12.5 percent.) These “bumi” shares have sometimes been sold at below market price in order to meet the quotas. According to a list of recipients published a few years ago, the stocks have gone mostly to people connected to senior government officials and politicians from UMNO. And in 2009 Mr. Najib revealed that only 2 billion ringgit of the 54 billion ringgit (about $12.8 billion at today’s rates) in bumi shares allocated since 1971 remained in Malay hands.

    Market discipline, transparency and good governance are falling by the wayside in the name of Malay supremacy. And for what? After more than four decades of preferential treatment, many bumiputera businesses remain uncompetitive and rely on the government for their survival. Non-Malays are leaving the country in droves, undermining the economy’s long-term prospects. Although the educational levels of Malays have improved tremendously, their median household income still lags behind those of all other ethnic groups. The pro-Malay affirmative action policies must be abandoned. The Malay Agenda is hurting Malaysia.

      Fuck James Chin for saying “The root cause of Malaysia’s current troubles is ketuanan Melayu”. And fuck the bastard “Ang Tiunama Peng” for trying to propagating that.

      You both have no clue what “Ketuanan Melayu” is all about, no matter whatever title the bloke in Tasmania carries.

      Malay supremacy is not Ketuanan Melayu. Ketuanan Melayu is not the idea of the Malays are Tuan and the rest are slaves.

      Ketuanan Melayu is the notion reflected in the functions, roles, and responsibilities of the YDP Agong, the Malay Rulers, the Rulers Council, etc. Where, without the YDP Agong “Assenting”, no one can be formally declared and can officially function as PM. Similarly the case of the the MBs.

      The Agong has the discretion to act on his own on the advice of the PM. But he can choose to refer any matter he desires to the Rulers Council. And the Rulers Council can act as a body, like they did when, after conferring at a Pre-Council meeting, they issued a statement asking that the 1MDB case be settled as early as possible.

      Nobody who does not have the qualifications and experience as a Constitutional Law Expert can express valid views on Ketuanan Melayu, as that concerns the functions, roles and responsibilities of the YDP Agong, the Malay Rulers and the Rulers Council. Professor Emeritus Shad Saleem Faruqi of Universiti Malaya is a Constitutional Law Expert. James Chin is not. Not even a blessed law degree holder, I think.

      So, James Chin saying “The root cause of Malaysia’s current troubles is ketuanan Melayu” is, again, utter nonsense.

      The Singapore Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has revoked the Permanent Residency of American citizen, Professor Huang Jing after identifying him as “an agent of influence of a foreign country” for knowingly interacting with intelligence organisations and agents of foreign country and cooperating with them to influence the Singapore Government’s foreign policy and public opinion in Singapore.

      The Ministry has cancelled the Permanent Residency of Huang’s wife, Yang Xiuping, as well since she was aware that her husband was using his position as a senior professor “to advance the agenda of a foreign country.” The couple has also been permanently banned from re-entering the country.

      In a statement released today, the MHA charged that Huang used his position as Director of the Centre on Asia and Globalisation, and Lee Foundation Professor on US-China Relations at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKYSPP) to “deliberately and covertly advance the agenda of a foreign country at Singapore’s expense. He did this as he collaborated with foreign intelligence agents.”

      • a says:

        Huang is charged with engaging and disseminating “privileged information” about a foreign country to prominent and influential Singaporeans, with the aim of influencing their opinion in the favour of that country. This, the MHA asserted, represents subversion and represents foreign interference in domestic politics.

        One of the people Huang shared such “privileged information” with was a senior member of the LKYSPP so that the member could convey the information to the Singapore Government. The senior member eventually relayed the information to “very senior public officials who were in a position to direct Singapore’s foreign policy. However, the Singapore Government declined to act on the “privileged information.””

        MHA asserted that the clear intention was to use the information at hand to cause the Singapore Government to change its foreign policy. The ministry also said that Huang recruited others to aid his operations.

        This is not the first time that Huang has been in the news. Last year, the police were called in after he gave a taxi driver a $1 tip and told him to ‘step out and show some respect’.

    “Kerala Militant Torpedoed

    You know the next general election is going to be a dirty one when old issues are brought back ad infinitum despite being repeatedly shot down.

    The latest issue that is being brought back is of the Royal Malaysian Navy’s Scorpene deal. Two portals, Free Mischief Today and Malaysian Incite published a report yesterday claiming that Abdul Razak Baginda has been charged in a French court.

    A quick search by a friend found no such news from AFP.

    Credit to Danny Liew

    I find it impossible that such a big thing never made it into a little column on the AFP portal.

    Today, U-Turn Mahathir revealed that the purchase of the Scorpene was never discussed in any cabinet meeting. It was reported again by Malaysian Incite. Perhaps the Big Chief of that portal had had too much during happy hours with Tokong.

    Anyway, Mahathir can fool the youngsters like Pribumi’s Ketua Amanda, Syed Sajat. Other more matured people would know the truth.

    The green light for the purchase of the Scorpene was given by the Prime Minister and Finance Minister back in 1995. I’ll leave it to you to name them. The negotiations were conducted according to defence procurement contracts procedures.

    In June 2002, the contract was signed after getting the final approval of the Finance Minister who was also the Prime Minister. Again, I shall let you guess his name.

    Included in this contract was the purchase of a former French Navy submarine (which is now a museum in Melaka) that would act as a training platform for Malaysian’s submariners for four years.

    The final commercial committee was headed by the Secretary-General of Treasury who submitted the report of the acquisition. At this point, the Ministry of Defence was no longer involved.

    Back in 2012, Mahathir said that neither he nor Najib Razak were involved in the acquisition of the Scorpene submarines. The Opposition bloggers went to town to link Mahathir and Daim Zainuddin to the purchase.

    So, how is it that Mahathir is exonerated by the Opposition and now claims he would have blocked the purchase had he known about it?”
