  • The next right thing to do is to sell off this ever loosing outfit, from the day Tan Sri Aziz steps down it has always be in the red and begging for public fund, just get rid of it. It drains out public funds like nobody business, it bleeds all the way and enough is enough. No Malaysian would cry as there is no pride in it and we are not even has any sentimental values what so ever. Our public funds are better of without bailing this shit company and the extra funds save can be put to good used elsewhere.
