There’s now the Jho Low controversy swirling feverishly around Najib Razak and triggered by no less than a lengthy report published in one of the world’s most famous newspapers – The New York Times.
Then there is also the Sarawak Report special investigation exposé which was reputedly put together with yet another newspaper of international renown – London’s Sunday Times.
All this makes you ponder just what kind of people – the Jho Low type, I reckon – it is that our PM is surrounded by.
Next – and this is from my own up close and personal bad experience yesterday evening – comes the question of what kind of (external) media consultancy is advising Najib?
Again the reports going around indicate the involvement of some unsavoury characters in his communication team who are being paid a whole lot of money.
In my earlier posting today – ‘UPDATED: This person plagiarized my writing! and Jonathan Smith’s as well (!!!)‘ – I’ve conclusively shown how one of the PM’s staunchest defenders in cyberspace, seemingly with cables to get his work on some major platforms, had plagiarized me.
Yesterday, one ‘Iskandar Mohamad’ (a pseudonym, I’m sure) published his article ‘The Other Side of Anwar‘ in Malaysia Today. It was plagiarized entirely from my writings – my blog posting on Feb 16 – as well as from the book I-Files on Anwar penned by Jonathan Smith.
So that’s that. The evidence is really incontrovertible. But I’m more interested in our prime minister than in a pseudonymous well-paid and unscrupulous hack.
Tell me, what kind of people are the flagbearers prominently defending Najib Razak in the digital (or print) media? I’m willing to bet my bottom dollar that this ‘Iskandar Mohamad’ is one of ’em consultants. This is my strong suspicion.
And I’m going to say this about Dato’ Seri Najib, and mind you, my political predictions in the past have all been uncannily accurate.
With the unravelling of 1MDB on top of the kind of people that you have around you, sir – and there are more than just a few of them – your premiership will surely self-destruct, and sooner than we anticipate.
