TTF: When Datuk Seri Najib Razak refused to subvert Umno elections by throwing his weight behind Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir, it became his fault that the son of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad lost both the UMNO youth chief and vice-president contests in 2009 and 2013 respectively.
When Najib refused to build a crooked bridge linking Singapore to Johore, it became his fault that Malaysia fell “victim” to the Singaporean government’s egotistical whims.
When the ringgit went from RM3.80 to RM4 and above, it became Najib’s fault that the local unit was suffering.
Then, when the ringgit began to recover, it became Najib’s fault that the ringgit was not recovering “fast enough”
And when the ringgit finally began to float around the RM3.8 mark, it became Najib’s fault that Mahathir was “forced” to announce his candidacy for the role of Prime Minister just to “help the ringgit recover”.
Yes, even when Mahathir loses his underwear, it’s Najib’s fault.
Whenever he goes overseas to meet his busty 20-plus-year-old Argentinian and Mexican girlfriends but can’t get an erection, it’s Najib’s fault.
Heck, if he can’t aim straight into the toilet bowl due to his age, it’s probably Najib’s fault too!
SUBANG JAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak claimed today Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has a penchant for faulting everyone but himself after the former premier reportedly blamed the government for The Loaf’s closure.
Dr Mahathir had reportedly told Singapore’s Straits Times that the popular bakery franchise he helped found was forced to shut down when the potential buyer backed down from the deal due to pressure from the Inland Revenue Board.
“You can’t blame the government for everything,” Najib said at a Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA) gathering here.
“If prices go up you blame the government, if fuel goes up you blame the government.. even when your bakery closed shop and you blame the government,” the Barisan Nasional chairman added.
The Premium Japanese-inspired bakery abruptly closed its business for good after operating for 12 years. The first store was launched in Langkawi by Dr Mahathir in 2006.
The bakery posted a closure notice at their Sogo KL outlet on Friday, Local Chinese daily, Oriental Daily, reported.
The franchise was known for its mid-ranged bakery products and pastries.
Responding to the report, Dr Mahathir denied owning the franchise said he only owns some 200 units of shares in Malaysian Tobacco and Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB).
Najib said Dr Mahathir’s assertion blaming the the government for The Loaf’s closure typified the opposition he led as he sought to dissuade voters from supporting Pakatan Harapan on May 9.
“You cannot support a political party like this, which only knows how to blame the government for everything,” he said. – The Third Force
