Which crony will get it? The first of a series of blog articles by A Voice seems to suggest that there's an concerted effort by people close to the Prime Minister to create an AP business ala Malaysia which will be worth billions of ringgit.
This concerted effort seems to involve using the media to picture Bernas, the sole rice authority in the country, as an ineffective, corrupt and complicated entity. The aim is to prepare the public and the government for the settting up of a "second Bernas". But this new entity, bros and sis, will only handle the APs.
We all know that APs are for cronies, and even monkeys can get fly-helicopter rich in the AP business. There's talk that a friend of the son-in-law could be laughing all the way to all the banks when this happens.
And we wondered why the PM needs more time?
