It crossed my mind – if managers of football clubs can get sacked when they don’t manage the club well, why can’t the leaders of our country get sacked when they don’t rule the country well?

It is an interesting thought. But the problem here is that managers of football clubs are under a higher authority – the owners of the clubs, or the director.

The leaders of the country are not – for instance, no one is above the Prime Minister overseeing what’s going on. Nevertheless, what I DO know is that the Prime Minister, though he is in charge of everything, he is NOT the one calling the shots all the time.

Which leads us to the next point – isn’t the PM like the owner of the club, or the director among the shareholders, and then the Cabinet under him like the managers. Then, when the Cabinet screws up, the PM can either back him up or shoot him down. If that’s the case, then why is the politics in Malaysia a great big national joke?

I guess the problem really comes when the PM fails to realize something is wrong with the way they are managing the country. It’s like, when the Cabinet screws up, the PM comes  out and say, “He is doing the right thing!” and then gives some rubbish explanation that makes no sense even to a 10-year-old.

I guess that’s what happens to football clubs (and countries) which go downhill. Sigh. Men and brethren, what shall we do?
