I commented on Datuk Rocky's latest article, "Bank Islam thinks BN will fall in PRU13?", that I am skeptical of the TMI report about Bank Islam's chief economist, Azrul Azwar Ahmad Tajudin's "calculation" predicting the outcome of the next general election in favour of Pakatan Rakyat.
Correctly, Datuk Rocky pointed out that En AAA had been highly critical of the government on more than one occassion.
In the latest follow up, The Malaysia Insider reports "Bank Islam economist’s polls forecast ruffles feathers"
It is not unlike TMI to change it's tune when you consider it's previous headline "tea leaves", when breaking the story, is now a "forecast".
Thus, I am giving the Bank Islam chief economist the benefit of a doubt only because I am skeptical of the TMI report. I am unable to trace the Singapore Straits Times report as claimed by TMI.
It is right for the Bank Islam management to verify what had been presented by EN AAA as it is a matter of professional ethics but more importantly credibility of the bank. I will leave it at that for the moment.
Anyway, from the Regional Outlook Forum 2013 programme, En AAA had his presentation titled "Malaysia's Economic Outlook". Bland when you consider the other 2 panellists' optimistic "Investment as the Engine of Growth: The Case of Indonesia" and "Asia 2013:Brighter Horizons and Asean 2013:Resilience Tested".
If the TMI reports are verified by the Bank Islam management inquiry it will only confirm ,"like father like son", En AAA as an epitome of his party de facto leader's character - a Malaysian who takes pride condemning Malaysia.
EN AAA will then have to account for his brazen acts as an Anwar Ibrahim clone and must be stopped from becoming another, what Ah Chua would say, Anwar cloney.
