Rancangan Malaysia ke-11: Konsultan didahulukan

May 21, 2015 at 3:55 pm 21 comments

Excerpt from Liew Chin Tong’s statement on the 11th Malaysia Plan:

(Liew is DAP strategist and MP for Kluang)

Pemandu given too much money

“Najib has Pemandu, Talent Corp, Teraju, UKAS (Public-Private Partnership Unit), and many other new agencies which compete for influence with EPU. In particular, Pemandu has an unjustifiably huge budget to implement the various alphabet soups like NKRAs, NKEAs.” – Liew Chin Tong

YB Liew has a point. Najib’s 11th Malaysia Plan presented in Parliament today is replete with fuzzy phrases that attempt to sound impressive but actually ring hollow.

.
FLASHBACK:

In the poll above taken in the last week of December 2013, a total of 75 percent of the respondents said “Yes”, Pemandu should be dissolved while 25 percent said “Ya”, Pemandu harus dibubarkan.

My online opinion survey attracted 750 participants.

Liew: PM’s “outsourcing of thinking to private consultants”

“With so many competing agencies, one would think that the Government with its in-house talents should produce a more meaningful document with plenty of opportunities for ministers, civil servants, state governments, the opposition, and the people to contribute ideas. Sadly it is not the case. The government just refuses to think.

“Government documents, like the Malaysia Plans, are now produced by big international consultancies plucking ideas from the air, with very little consultation across the ministries or with the state governments. Input from the opposition and the people at large are ignored altogether.” – Liew Chin Tong

Stadlen

Pay peanuts get monkey; pay nothing then get what, ah?

Is the omputih consultant’s “National Communications Team” call card above authentic?

Reacting to the astounding news that Paul Stadlen is working in the Prime Minister’s Office “for free”, blogger Syed Akbar Ali wants to know if the former Apco man is doing “national service” for Malaysia?

SAA has a question for Najib Razak: It is an issue of creative terminology? Like you say your gomen did not pay a “salary”, so maybe you paid “fees”, ah? Or “contractual payments”?

Or what perhaps it is called something else?

    Helen,

    Who is this Paul Stadlen?

    A British Resident? Just like the colonial days where British residents advices (usually on British interests) must be obeyed by Malay sultans?

    Dah tak ada orang melayu yg beriman ke yang boleh bagi nasihat?

        Helen,

        Sebab inilah Najib kena letak jawatan. Dan Muhyidin kena mulakan gerakan suruh Najib letak jawatan.

        Najib dah macam tenggelam punca. seperti hilang pedoman. Dan memang hilang pedoman pun. banyak tindakannya memerangi Melayu.

        Dia bubarkan ISA. tak tanya UMNO pun. Dia batallkan 27 syarat dalam sektor berniaga masa mula mula jadi PM.

        Dia lantik juga MCA dalam kabinet walaupun oirang Cina kalau boleh nak UMNO hancur. Dia enggan bertegas bila Guan eng buat PPS, satu pasukan yang tidak setia pada yang Dipertuan Agung.

        Dia kata Sekolah berasingan dijamin dalam Perlembagaan. wal hal tak ada pun.

            Helen,

            Dah.

            Tapi orang UMNO ni bebal sikit. Muhyidin mesti lebih tegas. Bukan setakat kata CEO 1MDB mesti pecat.

            Muhyidin mesti kali ni lebih berterus terang. Kali ni kena cakap yang Najib disarankan letak jawatan.

            Kena beri ISYARAT YANG JELAS.

            Saya orang melayu. saya faham kedudukan Ketua bahagian UMNO. Sukar untuk minta Najib letak jawatan biula yg no 2 tak beri isyarat jelas.

            APA MAKSUD ISYARAT JELAS?

            Guna ayat ini ” Saya sebagai TPM sudah tak dapat terima segala masalah 1MDB. Oleh itu saya fikit kepimpinan Najib sudah tidak lahi dapat sokongan saya”.

            DIRECT TO THE POINT.

            And the ball will start rolling.

            Hanya Muhyidin boleh berkata demikian. sebab dia yg paling senior selepas Najib. Percayalah secara tiba tiba segala MT UMNO akan sokong Muhyidin.

            CARA YG LEBIH SOPAN?

            Najib suka rela mengadap Yang diPertuan agung dan kata nak letak jawatan.

            Saya tak fikir Najib sanggup buat macam tu. jadi apa pilihan Muhyidin. Tunggu lapuran Ketua audit negara pun jawapan sama juga. 1MDB banyak masalah.

                Ketua Bahagian juga bukan malaikat. Mereka juga jaga kepentingan mereka. Jika mereka sedar Najib dah ‘beyond help’, mereka pasti tak sokong lagi.

                Sekarang ni mereka masih “mimpi”. Muhyidin, bukan Tun Dr Mahathir, saja yg boleh kejutkan dari tidur.

                Najib hilang pengaruh tanpa sokongan Timbalannya.

                Orang lain termasuk Tun boleh hentam Najib apa saja. Tapi selagi Muhyidin tak kata beliau percaya pimpinan baru diperlukan, maka ketua bahagian akan kekal sokong Najib.

                  Good point. But not sure he can pull it off (?) It takes that special something to be No.1, like what Tun’s got. Or Tun Razak.

                  Onn Jaafar, I believe, is definitely prime ministerial calibre par excellence.

                  Saya rasa sekalipun Umno jadi tempang, Najib masih tidak akan lepaskan jawatan presiden.

                  Another boo-boo today: Rosmah went to Parliament to hear the 11th Malaysia Plan presentation.

                    Helen,

                    UMNO is plain lucky. Lucky as PR are in disarray. PAS, due to its insistence to kowtow to DAP, does not get the lion share of Malay votes. and PKR is heavily supported by non Malays

                    In sincerity though its opponent are at each coalition throat, UMNO is in danger too. Najib has alienated the very people who defended his government.

                    Najib must go.

                    Muhyidin must take over. by virtue of his seniority, he is the only person whom I can think off that can initiate change in UMNO leadership.

                    The future is bleak on UMNO if Najib overstays his welcome. Najib, together with entire UMNO leadership will be booted out if Najib stays.

                    It does not take genius to initiate change. Muhyidin just needs to send signal that he is no longer with Najib.

    Helen,

    Harap segala Ketua bahagian UMNO sedar tentang 1MDB. Maalah ni masalah Najib memandai mandai. Sekarang dah jadi masalah UMNO.

    Saya yakin 100% UMNO akan tumbang jika Najib kekal PM. Jadi Najib mesti berkorban jika mahu UMNO selamat.

    Melayu dah tak boleh tengok muka dia. Dah tak percaya dia. Muhyidin mesti mulakan isyarat tukar PM.

    Jika tidak, dengan Muhyidn sekali akan diutendang keluar dalam pilihanraya akan datang.

      Sedar tapi macam tak faham, tak nampak apakah masalahnya. Itu sebab boleh timbul soal “tapi Mokhzani pun kaya, TDM kena jawab.” I have personally heard that remark by some personality at the Bahagian meeting in trying to justify the 1MDB issue.

      Dan ada juga ketua bahagian yang bergantung kepada Najib dan dengan menyatakan sokongan lebih memudahkan perjalanan kerja mereka.

      Personal question – are you an Umno member? I’m not but I can honestly say that I voted for BN always except for 2008 when I decided I’m tired of Pak Lah and my 1 vote will not affect the position of the MCA guy for my area. I might be too tired to vote again at this rate.

      In case you think I’m babbling I actually have a point. There are only about (what?) 2-3 million Umno members and mostly voted for BN. But there are more Malay voters out there who are not members of the party but still voted for them.

      But at the rate the PM is going, he is going to lose, not the Umno members votes but the votes of the Malays who are not registered as Umno members. So he can have all the “I<3PM" and "solidariti" from Umno but those who are right now upset with him are not the card-carrying Umno Malays.

    With all the acronyms used (GTP, ETP, NKEA etc) obviously Najib is a firm believer and practitioner of “If you can’t convince people, confuse them”

      3A concept versus 3C concept. 3A is 3 Actualities…. Actual Place, Actual Condition, Actual Fact. 3C : when you don’t get the 3A right, use 3C to save yourself : Try to Convince, if failed, make them Confused. Once they are Confused, Con them!

      Well, that is the way of those people always trying to please their boss.

      The worst of the acronym spam has to be the numerous derivatives under the 1Malaysia scheme: BR1M, BS1M, TG1M, TK1M, KR1M and more.

    What I find interesting in the tabling of the RMK11 is that it doesn’t seem to generate much interest among the BN supporters. Just check out the blogs, not much written about it. It’s like either people don’t understand or not interested or they have nothing good to write about.

    Haven’t got around to reading it but here’s a take on the Plan that I find interesting –

    41. Dalam pada itu, persepsi saya, tiada apa yang extra ordinary mengenai RMK11 ini. Teras dan Pemacu itu merupakan topik-topik lama yang direpackage (kalaupun bukan direcycle!). RMK11 masih beroperasi di bawah falasafah, dasar dan ecosystem yang sama serta terus dibelengu dan dikongkong oleh peneraju supply chain yang juga sama.

      re: “that it doesn’t seem to generate much interest among the BN supporters”

      There are allegations of sabotage, i.e. the viral video clip of Muhyiddin was leaked – note the timing of its release – to upstage RMK11 as a talking point.
