Only himself to blame

Kid: Watch out for that apple Mr, sometimes you can catch listeria (apple reads 'political parties')

Amid health warnings over imported apples contaminated with listeria monocytogenes, critics say President Widodo only has himself to blame for the fiasco surrounding the national police's criminalisation of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) and should have stopped Budi Gunawan's nomination for police chief as soon as the KPK named him a suspect a month ago, instead of bowing to the pressure from his party patron, PDI-P chair Megawati Sukarnoputri, known to be close to Budi who served as her security aide during her 2001-2004 presidency.
