Puchong, 12 April: With the plan to let out the barbers, PM Muhyiddin Yassin may have tripped over for the first time in his otherwise suave handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and Movement Control Order (MCO). It's no big deal, really, I wouldn't even call it a blunder, but the barber move does make you wonder if everyone on Abang Din's advisory team is of sound of mind, body and spirit.
Most people just don't see the logic of the idea but they have been polite about it in their social media (which, I think, is a reflection of the respect the Rakyat have for this PM). Take this cute take from one of my favourite tweeters:
And, guess what? Even the barbers don't want to see, let alone touch, our faces! ( Lives more important than looks, hairdressers say as nine out of ten refuse to reopen and Barbers tearing their hair out over being allowed to give haircuts during MCO.)
I'm not sure whose idea it was, but some razors point at Senior Minister Azmin Ali.
|"So Azmin Ali, do the nation a favour and listen to Dua Lipa"|
One piece of knowledge the PM would have gained from this unfortunate snag is the curious fact that some of his economic advisors had not deem it necessary to consult with the health experts when they came out with the latest ideas.

I agree with DG Dr Noor Hisham. Let's get our priorities right.
