Tickled by Annuar Musa’s teaser – why not Najib? Kit Siang lost elections but remains DAP adviser

I am quite tickled by the teaser from the UMNO Secretary-General Annuar Musa – Why not Najib? Kit Siang lost elections but remains DAP adviser!

It has only confirmed that Annuar Musa is not a very bright chap.

In defending Najib Abdul Razak's appointment as chairperson of the BN advisory board, Annuar said the embattled former premier is very much an asset to the coalition.

He said although BN lost the 14th general election under Najib, it does not mean he does not have useful experience to share.

He said: "We have to remember that Lim Kit Siang has been DAP adviser for many years. How many times has DAP lost in the past 13 general elections? Lim stayed on as their adviser.

"So this is a non-issue. Just because someone has lost once, this doesn't mean the person is disqualified from becoming an adviser.”

Clearly, it is asking too much to expect Annual Musa to have the IQ to understand that I had never led DAP to any electoral loss because I was a global kleptocrat, as was Najib’s case.

The appointment of Najib as BN adviser, with the consent of UMNO, MCA and MIC (the three parties left in BN), only confirms the bankruptcy of BN parties, demonstrating that no UMNO, MCA or MIC leader regrets or is remorseful about the ravages the monstrous global 1MDB scandal (which the US Attorney-General had condemned as “kleptocracy at its worst”) and other rampant corruption in the past Najib administration had done to Malaysia’s development, credibility and future.

In a way, Malaysians must be thankful for the appointment of Najib as BN adviser, as it will be a constant reminder to Malaysians that BN and the component parties of UMNO, MCA and MIC are nothing more than 1MDB parties, which had existed to commit the 1MDB scandal and now existing to defend and justify 1MDB corruption, abuses of power and money-laundering.

I hope Barisan Nasional will never change its mind on Najib’s appointment as BN adviser for Malaysians must constantly be reminded of such a “regressive” decision.

Let Barisan Nasional, UMNO, MCA and MIC be the most fervent advocates of the “Malu Apa Bossku?” campaign.
