Crooks, the whole lot of them


The slew of accusations now being traded between former leaders about corruption, nepotism and malfeasance in office has, no doubt, confirmed what most Malaysians have long suspected: that their leaders are all corrupt and untrustworthy.

They come around waving the flag and pretending to be great patriots but they are just opportunists out to enrich themselves and their cronies. No wonder they say that in Malaysia politics is the most lucrative profession of all.

In the end, it doesn’t matter who you vote for because they are all the same. Either way, the voters are screwed!

We have truly become a kleptocracy – government of kleptocrats, by kleptocrats, for kleptocrats – in every sense of the word.

“Politics: “Poli” a Latin word meaning “many” and “tics” meaning “bloodsucking creatures”.” ― Robin Williams
