Correct, a cat has 9 lives. This Top Cat lost RM9 billion and is now contesting to be an MP. Only in Malaysia. And only in Penang.
Four years ago, when Pak Lah made Nor Mohamed Yakcop our Finance Minister 2, the PM said he needed a non-politician professional, a minister who won't need to worry about politics.
Please read the article here (will link later), which was written by Brenden Pereira, now a major PR practitioner doing several big government accounts.
Excerpt of that article:
"The Prime Minister said so yesterday: 'I need a minister who is always available in the ministry. He is a professional. Someone who does not need to worry about politics."
Does that mean Mr RM9 billion won't be a Cabinet minister even if he wins the election on March 8 and the BN gets to form the government?
