The Star online yesterday reported, here, that deputy prime minister Najib Abdul Razak, who is now in London, has said that Malaysians must change their mindset and seek alternative sources of energy and not just rely on petrol. "They could consider electric cars," he said.
Electric cars? He must think that these would be cheap now and can almost run on love and fresh air. Typical of a blue-blood, I think, born with a silver spoon in his mouth unlike us peasants born with plastic spoons up our bloody arses.
Shades of Marie Antoinette here, old bean.
Najib has also said that the "government is willing to share the burden in facing price hikes along with the people". And all this while we thought that this has always been a "people's government". Sheeesh.
Perhaps a poor old retiree like me will have to resort to the above (photo) now, although there is a dearth of real donkeys in this country.
But we certainly have no shortage of them in the government.
