There are many, many mega projects, bailouts and horrendous mistakes of judgement – that have cost taxpayers dearly – which should be investigated, says Wishful Accountant.

I refer to the latest hot potato to have emerged – the call for royal commissions of inquiry to probe 1MDB, BMF and the Bank Negara forex scandal.

But why stop there – I wish to jump on to the bandwagon and call for all major issues and losses of recent times to be investigated by a mother of all royal commissions of inquiry.

Wishful Accountant, who practises his trade, is a keen customer services and rights champion who spends his own time and resources chasing banks, utility providers, highway concessionaires and local councils on various public interest issues. Occasionally, he feels compelled to comment on political and social issues.

All those monies lost if used wisely could have made Malaysia a Great Nation among Asean. Presently even Indonesia and Vietnam are doing better… Sighhhhh… these are the 60 years of effort? Still got face to celebrate 60 years of Independence? Should Seriously and Thoroughly Reflect because the next 60 years Malaysia will not have that kind of cash to burn, bros!!!
