FOLKS last nite I attended a small group meeting about the TPPA. Last month I attended the TPPA Open Day held by MITI. Dato Mustapa Mohamed held the forte grandly against 1400 genuinely concerned Malaysians of all races who were totally hostile towards the TPPA.
Before I forget let me tell you that we are NOT signing the TPPA with 12 or 13 countries. The TPPA is actually an agreement we are signing with the United States of America and the US alone. Yes I know that 12 other countries will be signatories but that is just garnish, the fancy dark sauce decoration on the plate.
Each of the 12 other countries are signing their sovereignty away to the United States. And the Gomen as well as our boys are totally blur about the whole deal. Last nite I saw the PM's people whose eyes were open but their lights were off.
They do not understand anything about what is going on or what they are doing. The consultans who are helping the Gomen (there were two of them last nite) are totally indifferent to what will happen to the country. To them it is just another file they have to handle - most likely worth millions in consulting fees to them.
The second thing you should know is that TPPA really stands for Jamaludin Jarjis' Trans Pacific Partnership with America (TPPA).
