Najib reared like an 18th century prince: Sarawak Report

In a lashing comment on ex-Malaysian PM Najib Razak, the Sarawak Report, the site that broke the 1MDB story said the latter is childish, pampered and self-pitying.

The site was responding to Najib’s Reuters interview in which he is seen repeating his previous denials of any wrongdoing in the 1MDB scandal.

Sarawak Report said Najib’s answers were: “So childish and pampered is this ludicrous and self-pitying man that one almost feels sorry for him for have been so under-educated for his role.

The ‘editorial’ then coined Najib as an 18th-century prince.

“Najib appears to have been reared like an eighteenth-century prince with a whipping boy to take the blame each time His Dunce failed to grasp his lessons.”

The blog said Najib inherited his office as ‘of right’, but then it became clearer the day he couldn’t perform the role.

“And he still doesn’t realise that everyone can see right through him.

“He simply wasn’t taught what the rest of the world learns at an early age about taking responsibility, working for one’s rewards and facing the consequences of lying.”

It also laughed at Najib for complaining about the reduction of his security staff and for not being treated like a ‘former PM’ would be treated.

“Moving on to more important matters, I do think it is really most appalling how I am not being treated with the respect due to a former prime minister.

“And why pilloried for taking 30 suitcases for a short holiday away?  We almost had to carry the bags ourselves, since the police escort staff have been so outrageously reduced,” wrote the blog.

The editor started the piece with sarcasm, saying Najib may have been an all-powerful prime minister and finance minister in charge of his ruling party and the country, but he was not responsible for anything.

“This was his message during his exclusive interview this week from his holiday in the five-star resort of Langkawi,” said the blog post.
