That should be the rule of thumb for some of our politicians today.
Malaysians are all embracing for higher prices in 2014 and some politicians (from the ruling BN) can tell the rakyat to take it or leave it, literally.
This is in reference to Kuantan Wanita Umno chief Datuk Zaiton Mat who told Malaysians to ‘Leave Malaysia if they dislike BN’ and go and live elsewhere.
This is surely the best way to get into the limelight and to be noticed.
The thing is, no one likes rising prices.
And in making the announcement, the prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak would not like it any better because he knows that he will be getting a lot of stick for doing so.
So rising prices and the issues surrounding it is not something nice to do.
But why are there politicians who are calling on Malaysians to try and ‘embrace’ it. Honestly, no one with a sane mind will want to embrace it.
Zaiton Mat is telling Malaysians to ‘accept’ the rising prices and to ‘like’ BN. Datuk Seri Abdul Wahid Omar, the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office told Malaysians to use other roads if they do not like the rising toll prices.
Does this mean that Zaiton likes BN and loves the rising of prices? Does this mean that Abdul Wahid loves to use the toll roads? (even if he does not need to drive).
Such statements are uncalled for and as the saying goes, ‘IF YOU HAVE NOTHING NICE TO SAY, JUST SHUT UP!’.
