Tony Pua fashions himself as some sort of an opposition shadow Finance Minister.
Unfortunately, since Anwar Ibrahim has failed to deliver on his pre-2008 election promise to set up a shadow cabinet, we shall just have to refer to Tony Pua as the “unofficial” opposition shadow Finance Minister.
Now, a Finance Minister would have to be someone who keeps his promise and delivers on time and as promised.
Unfortunately, the facts will show that Tony Pua is far from Finance Minister material.

"His business venture Cyber Village, where he often claims he made his first million from has had various suits filed against it by disgruntled clients who felt cheated by its inability to perform their contractual obligations.
"In one instance, Cyber Village entered into contract with a Berjaya Group subsidiary named My2020.com to set up an e-procurement hub. Cyber Village missed deadlines and even overbilled with Tony Pua unable to justify during the trial how he arrived at the additional charges at a rate of RM800 a day.
"To top all this of – the e procurement system delivered by Cyber Village to My2020 was an absolute failure!"
So much of a politician who himself is facing so many suits!
It is a benevolent government. Despite being adversely affected by the downward ratings by Standard & Poor on the US economy, our civil servants and pensioners should feel relieved that there is still something for them to spend on Hari Raya.
Its not the amount. Its the thought that counts.
I am not a civil servant but I have many friends who come under the payroll - from a despatch rider to the high-ranking ones. Please don't complaint. It's always better than nothing.
So, 'bersyukurlah'. Thank you, Najib!
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 8 (Bernama) -- The government has agreed to pay bonus of half month salary with minimum payment of RM500 for civil servants. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said besides this, the goverment had also agreed to give special payment of RM500 to government pensioners. "The bonus and special payment will be made in the middle of this month," Najib, who is also Finance Minister, said in a statement today.
Najib said the bonus was to appreciate the dedication and contributions of civil servants in successfully implementing the nation's development programmes. "The government hopes the provision of this bonus and special payment can lighten the burden of civil servants and government pensioners and help them make preparations for the upcoming Aidilfitri celebration.
"This shows that the government is always concerned about the welfare of civil servants and government pensiors. The awarding of the bonus is a mark of appreciation of all civil servants," said Najib. Najib said the two payments involved 1.27 million civil servants and 590,000 government pensioners and entailed an estimated expenditure of RM2 billion. - BERNAMA
“Erap is my great friend, family friend,” Anwar said, referring to Estrada by his nickname. “And how I wish he could come to Malaysia and help me in the campaign because he still has many admirers there” (here).
Admirers? Who? Rather than Estrada, Anwar should also consider getting Barack Obama or Netanyahu to help his election campaigns.
Hmmm... actually Anwar himself is gaining a lot from his close relationship with Erap the actor...
