David Jones and Najib's daughter who was not here
WISMA MUST CLARIFY AUSTRALIAN PAPER'S REPORT. I am convinced it is a publicity stunt, that news The West Australian published alleging a daughter of Najib Razak's had spent 60 thousand Aussie dollars at David Jones. I went there this morning, curious, but in the end did not buy a single thing. I am regretting it; should have gotten that AUD125 Fahrenheit gift package for a friend (cologne for him, I could keep the shampoo and the deodorant). Truth is, there was not much that interested me - David Jones is so much like our Metro or Jusco, perhaps just a little bit upmarekt ...
In any case, and as I have said in my tweets last night, and as this blogger has also confirmed a couple of hours ago, none of Najib's daughters were here in Perth during the CHOGM, which ended in Sunday, so the newspaper got it wrong. Totally.
But Wisma Putra needs to set the record straight, not us. Our Consul General in Perth or High Commissioner in Canberra must inform the newspaper, officially. Wrong is wrong, mate...
And then we can get our local cyber boys and girls back home, from Malaysiakini to Keadilan Daily, to help set the record straight. I am sure they would not mind. But if Wisma does not set the record straight, a lie told repeatedly will be perceived s truth and they only have themselves to blame.
