UMNO politicians say the darndest things, and Idris Jusoh is the latest one

Harakahdaily,11 September 2013


Sept 11: UMNO ministers have developed a unique way of responding to matters pertaining to public interests, rather simplified, memorable but nothing sort of ridiculing the cabinet’s image all at the same time.


When the public about the increase of vegetables prices back in 2010, then Domestic Trade, Cooperative and Consumerism minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob suggested the people to grew their own vegetables.
Prior to this year Hari Raya celebration, Ismail’s successor Hasan Malek told the people to switch to meat or fish when the price of poultry shot up.
When the people lamented about the flaws in the country’s election system, UMNO Selangor liaison chairman Noh Omar had told the complainants to stay in the jungle.
Similarly, Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had also called on Malaysians who were unhappy with the country’s political system to leave the country.
On people’s concern about the skyrocketing price of properties, Federal Territories Minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor had this to say.
“If houses are expensive, then don't buy from the developer or else, don't grumble too much.”
That’s not all.
Yesterday, Education Minister II Idris Jusoh had called on Malaysians who have no confidence on country’s education system to send their children abroad.
“There will no stopping us from implementing the National Education Blueprint," he said referring to the latest education roadmap launched by deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin last Friday.
From all the remarks gathered, Malaysians should really start asking themselves – do they deserve to have such leaders steering the future of Malaysia for the next generation?

Or rather, what they have not done to prevent the country to fall into such sorry state?
