Najib - like the man with two wives

December is when many people receive Christmas presents.

In an interview with The Malay Mail, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s responses are like the tatty present which has been recycled many times. Despite being given a new life with luxury wrapping paper and a fancy bow, the contents are still rubbish!

In the interview, Najib made a tacit admission that he was an ineffective leader. No politician, however daft, would paint himself as a failure but Najib managed to say that he is a failure. And to make matters worse, he revealed the extent to which he was powerless to act to save the nation, his party and himself.
