KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysians have become very concerned about that really important thing which the Prime Minister has yet to acknowledge in any way.
This ‘elegant silence’ created a policy vacuum so strong that the print and online media were forced to quote about the thing from the blog or recent speech of a retired former Prime Minister just so they would have some means to address the matter that has yet to be officially addressed by the PM.
“I feel better now the former PM said those statements about those important things,” said a Malaysian, “it makes me feel confident we have some sort of leadership happening in the country!”
Soon several cabinet members carefully weighed the impact of taking a position on the thing against the government’s dwindling popularity and the PM did finally mention the thing however for many people, it was too little too late.
