The backdoor government of Muhyiddin Yassin has screwed up so spectacularly in handling the Coronavirus crisis that the previous legitimately elected Pakatan Harapan (PH) government looks like a gem. The present regime has made so many fatal U-turns that it makes former Prime Minister Mahathir, known for his “U-turn government”, appears like a darling.


Sure, the now-collapsed PH government had made dozens of U-turn. But at least, those U-turn did not carry the risk of exposing people to the possibility of death. From the moment Prime Minister Muhyiddin announced on Monday (March 16) that a 2-week nationwide lockdown was necessary to curb the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus, it was doomed to make the situation worse.


The decision was bold and decisive, not that he had any other option. But that’s about it. There was no comprehensive study, let alone a detail and realistic execution plan. The incompetent government was merely fire-fighting. There was almost zero coordination among all the government agencies, police and military simply because nobody seems to know what to do.

Muhyiddin Yassin - Coronavirus

Only the prime minister can declare a lockdown or emergency based on the advice of the National Security Council Act 2016 under the provision Act 776. While everyone agreed that the Covid-19 has become a threat to national security, all the 8 geniuses who attended the National Security Council (NSC) meeting appeared to be as clueless as the guy sitting next to them on what to do next.


The 8 members of the NSC comprise Chairperson Muhyiddin, Home Minister Hamzah Zainudin, Defense Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob, Communications and Multimedia Minister Saifuddin Abdullah, International Trade & Industry Minister Azmin Ali, Chief Secretary Mohd Zuki Ali, Chief of Defense Affendi Buang and Inspector General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador.


After Muhyiddin announced the decision to lock down the country in a special televised broadcast to 33-million Malaysians, it was mission accomplished. The rest of the NSC members continued with their Candy Crush game. Exactly how much could International Trade & Industry Minister Azmin Ali contribute in the NSC meeting is quite a mystery.

National Security Council NSC Members - Muhyiddin Yassin

Common sense says any health or medical specialist would be able to offer more useful advices to the council than a disgraceful politician like Azmin. Subsequent chaos proved that not only the entire NSC top guns were clueless on how the Coronavirus spread, they were also ill-prepared to engage the pathogen in a warfare that has since gotten worse than before the lockdown.


Did Communications Minister Saifuddin Abdullah communicate any important information in the form of FAQs on a timely basis to the public to prevent panic and confusion? Nope. Hours before the lockdown announcement, panic buying had already begun after people read the rumours on social media. To add fuel to the rumour mill, the PM proudly said “wait for the big news tonight”.


The panic and confusion continued even “after” the lockdown announcement. Right, it was just a partial lockdown and Muhyiddin prefers the term MCO (movement control order). Whatever you like to call it, would it not be more effective to restrict movement by states or even by districts based on the geographical locations of the patients tested positive for the Coronavirus?


Hilariously, the prime minister announced a lockdown, but allowed everyone to travel interstate. People happily packed their luggages, pumped their tank to the fullest, and travelled back to their “kampung (hometown)” as if it was “Cuti-Cuti Malaysia” (vacations or holidays). Sure, there were some irresponsible and ignorant people who travelled instead of locked up at home.


However, a massive of those travellers who had chosen to return to their respective hometown all over the country were university students. They were chased out of their hostels because the genius Higher Education Ministry decided to shut down all public and private universities until March 31. The ministry essentially sent a mass of people to congested train stations and bus stations.


Instead of discouraging movement, the Higher Education Ministry encouraged them to move to a point of convergence, much to the pleasure of the Coronavirus. By the time the clueless Muhyiddin government realised the mistake and made a U-turn, it was already too late. The virus may have already spread among the packed travellers either at the transportation hubs or inside the buses or trains.

Ismail Sabri - Eat Turtle Egg

As one of four Senior Ministers, did Defense Minister Ismail Sabri communicate with his colleague, UMNO warlord and Higher Education Minister Noraini Ahmad, about the scope of coverage and all the relevant plans and procedures related to the so-called movement control order? Or was the Defense Minister fantasizing about turtle eggs during the NSC meeting?


Had the Pakatan Harapan coalition government still in charge, the racist UMNO and extremist PAS will accuse DAP of being anti-Malay and anti-Islam for closing down all the mosques nationwide and shutting down all the universities. Has anyone noticed how extraordinary quiet Islamist party PAS and UMNO Malay nationalist party are today?


To make matters worse, the top police chief was as clueless as the turtle egg Ismail Sabri. Obviously panicked and unprepared, IGP Hamid Bador made an impromptu decision on Tuesday (March 17), just hours before the lockdown goes into effect, that a special written “permit” to travel between states in the country must be obtained to check the spread of Covid-19.

Coronavirus - Police Station Swarmed by People Applying for Travel Permit

Exactly how could a piece of paper prevent the spread of the virus is beyond comprehension. But the joke didn’t end there. Just 5 hours after the order was issued, the police was forced to revoke it at about 11pm on Tuesday after police stations nationwide were swarmed with people planning to travel. Again, Coronavirus might have spread at the packed police stations.


Yesterday, Muhyiddin was forced to be on live TV – begging the people to stay at home. The incompetent prime minister probably hadn’t realized that he was trying to close the stable door after the horse has bolted. He appeared to be blaming the people for his own government’s screw-up when he mentioned about bus stations packed with thousands of people.


The PM even warned that if his half-baked plan to contain the spread of Coronavirus fails, the lockdown could be extended beyond March 31. In his speech, Muhyiddin claimed his government was concerned over the 790 infected cases. Yet, he played petty politics and refused to invite Chief Ministers from the states controlled by opposition Pakatan Harapan for a special National Action Council meeting.

Noraina Ahmad - Higher Education Minister

Now, after the damage has been done, the Higher Education Ministry made a U-turn and prohibited public and private university students from leaving their campus. Even if a conservative 20% of an estimated 700,000 public university students had escaped, the country is looking at 140,000 students who could potentially spread the virus in the rural areas.


Already, one passenger on Plusliner express bus from Johor Baru to Kuantan has been tested positive for Covid-19. And the turtle egg Defense Minister Ismail Sabri has threatened to unleash the military to enforce the movement control order – suggesting that the police under the leadership of IGP Hamid Bador is not capable of doing his job to enforce the lockdown order.


PM Muhyiddin should think twice before allowing his UMNO brother to bring in the military. It could create serious panic and more confusion – even perception – that the backdoor government is taking advantage of the Coronavirus pandemic to try to stay in power through military rule for as long as they want. The stock market may plunge further and investors may get out in droves.

This is what happened when a bunch of clowns are made ministers. Look at their faces….what do they know except how to ‘sapu’ money ??

Lock down or Movement control order which ever system you may want to implement, obviously an indept discussion with expert sectors are needed before implemention is carried out without further delay.
Of course China was caught with this Coronavirus (Covid-19) and within this very short period the situation were very well controlled from further spreading. This were made possible not to forget that it was so fortunate that their economy was so well of and their Citizens were so united and are so sacrifice particularly all those medical personal (Nurses and Doctors) to achieved the successful results in this very short period.
Now this Covid-19 unfortunately had spread and affected quite a number of our of our states. Are we ready to tackle this epidemic expertly and financially?

If they cannot contain the spread of Corvid-19 by end of month – where hopefully we won’t see the 3rd wave of spondaric outburst! If this is prolong for another 3-6 months, without proper containment (n what’s happening worldwide!) – not only will rakyat die – many industries and what not will die also! 1st in line to go will be our 3 airlines – MAS, AirAsia & Malindo!

And look at the share market today! Massive bleeding beyond belief! Why? Becos over the period of time, stock broking firms are giving out loans to rakyats to ‘pun/gamble’ the share market. Good times, like some of my friends made half a hundred thousand. Now there are heavy margin call and force selling which is pushing the share price down to level of no fundamental read at all!

Likewise our ringgit against the US dollars & the current price of crude oil in world market below US$30! Petronas lagi ada duit bagi kerajaan kah? A massive recession is coming soon after the Corvid-19!

Everything is ‘zero’ now – SST, oil price, low tax returns from public and private & individual, commodities duties, etc. And coming soon – massive bailout! Btw, how much reserves Bank Negara ada? 3-4 massive bailout will take away almost or more than 50% of their reserve… looks like the rakyats will be left standing in the end of the day!

And now iwth the MCO – our pintu belakang masuk government should (1) ban all public transports going outsation or cross states (2) ban all vehicles from federal highway (3) stop all LRT n MRT – which all put a constrain to the rakyats on travelling – but looks like they kalang kabut big time! WTF! They wanna ban you from walking exercise in your own garden park! And dare not utter a single voice to contain the spreaders of you know who!

Let’s duduk diam2 and see what will happen to our beloved Malaysia 3-6 months down the line! KNN! 🙁 🙁 🙁

There are more to come! Be forewarned 🙂

Yes we wait and see,what’s the kampung boys an Dins plan,

“simply because nobody seems to know what to do”

That is quite normal for Malaysia.

And that means every day.

It is “okay” if it is ordinary Malaysians (meaning nearly all).

But it is not alright at all if we have clown morons running the country.

Even if it is only running the country down.

For all that’s happening in all the countries hit by the coronavirus, the gomen stands out as the only wan that is making comedy out of something extremely serious – not that our dumb fcuks would be sufficiently awake to know…

A look at rogues’ gallery would show that absolutely none of the clown morons have any experience in crisis handling, the most we can trust this lot to do would be badly cook a stolen egg.

Every move the clown morons have half-thought out had to be cancelled with another badly-thought out move.

It is as if the Almighty is putting them to a test to show how bleeding moronic they can be.

And our clown morons have to show the whole world just how stupid stupid can be!

Anything any country can handle badly, our gomens can only do it worse.

You simply cannot trust primitive cavemen with any power to do anything, they will only fcuk it out in every horrific way unimaginable.

Looks cannot determine anything but our dumb fcuks have to look dumb fcuks too!

People’s lives cannot be messed about with, and our headless chickens should not think they can try each trick in their moron clown manual until their mad antics run out.

Given the absence of even simple common sense, let alone basic intelligence, it would be a better gamble if we leave everything to the Almighty – what’s wrong with that? – when there are those who would be happy with that, and when our miserable bunch are our guaranteed tickets to Hell with the donkeys flying the magic carpets.

There’s a bit of silver lining in the mayhem, though.

The crap handling of the crisis would get enough folks utterly pissed off that this gomen will not last – unless of course the military is brought in and we can have martial law, then, a fascist gomen…

Btw, “Movement Control Order” sounds every bit like “motion control”, “passing motion”, a doctor’s polite way of talking about the brown stuff going through the system, presumably, “first in, first out”, in that order. Sit and struggle, but get the order right, then worry about fighting for the toilet paper!

This is a good time for the DAP to make a come back.

Just impress the “Malay Muslims” by getting another petition going to ban anything to do with China’s Chinese.

The last petition to ban Chinese coming here garnered 250,000 signatures in a very short time.

Getting a racist anti-Chinese petition going would also impress the Yank NED, Council on Foreign Relations, George Soros… in fact, the whore of the US gomen.

It would make all those creatures the DAP grovel and crawl to very happy.

Not to forget Trump and his “Chinese virus”…

At the same time it may be a wise decision for another petition to go alongside to ban our own morons who are stupidly collecting and passing on the virus, they have proven themselves to be worse than the Chinese!

Got another 4000 unknown status health of tablig still moving freely out there. Backdoor Assmin government talk shit everyday.
