Uncivilized BN MPs in the Parliament

After the recent 12th general elections, more members of the Pakatan Rakyat were elected into the Parliament to counter check the weakened Barisan Nasional coalition MPs who were reduced from their two thirds majority enjoyed for decades.

However the speaker and deputy speaker of the parliament are still elected from amongst BN due to their current majority in the house. Due to this, unfair and unreasonable counts were still often sighted during the parliamentary sittings where BN MPs who uttered outrageous and sexist remarks in the house remain unpunished during the entire session despite their continuous uncivilized characters.

Let us look from the beginning, first we had these controversially dirty BN MPs such as Datuk Badruddin “Binatang” Amiruddin, Datuk Bung Mokhtar “Bocor” Radin and Datuk Mohd Said “Close One Eye” Yusof, and when Datuk Mohd Said is out from the picture, he was immediately replace with yet another Datuk Tajudin “Bastard” Rahman from Pasir Salak.

After uttering the word “Bloddy Bastard” on Ipoh Barat DAP MP M.Kulasegaran and just withdrawn his statement unpunished, he again more racist and dirty remarks on Kulasegaran by calling him “keling” while PKR MP Azmin Ali was called a “boil” (dumb). Then he asked another DAP MP Teo Nie Ching “bila nak keluar lagi air dia?”

Anyway, when every time this Tajudin utter any sensitive, sexist words or remarks on the Pakatan Rakyat MPs, he was merely given a light and ineffective reminder (not warning) and asked to retract his words by the speaker and deputy speaker.

But when the Pakatan Rakyat MPs fought back or make any additional requests to have certain current issues to be debated, they are either being told to keep quiet, to leave the house, being blocked or lastly suspended from the sittings for a stipulated time without pay.

If these Pakatan Rakyat MPs did get justice in the parliament and were unfairly punished like this, do you think our people or “rakyat” will be treated fairly and being given justice? Certainly it is a No! The parliament as the highest lawmaking institution in our nation had failed to demonstrate its effectiveness in its management and a just proceeding during the sitting.

In this case, the speaker and the deputy of the parliament should not be appointed solely from the BN coalition parties but instead should be also appointed from amongst members of parliament from Pakatan Rakyat as well. And if situations are left undecided, then the speaker and the deputy speaker should be appointed from amongst neutral professionals or respected figures whose duty bound to maintain the professionalism of this institution and do not belong to either BN nor Pakatan Rakyat. This will keep the BN MPs in check and deal with in a proper procedure should their words when out of their way.

But is BN willing to let go the positions of speaker and deputy speaker anyway? We bet they will not at all as long as they are still in power.

Fatwa Council banned Yoga, then take up Yogi !

As we had heard recently the announcement by the National Fatwa Council to ban Muslims from practicing Yoga exercise for fear of Hinduism influence over its Muslims practitioners which may jeopardize their Islamic faith.

What a big fuss on this? Has any Muslim converted to Hinduism after practicing Yoga? So far, we have not heard any case in relation of Muslims being converted during Yoga sessions. What is the main agenda behind such ruling? We supposed, the National Fatwa Council is practicing dogmatism !

To our understanding, Yoga exercise is practiced for natural health and healing purpose in many of its centers nationwide under full secular condition without emphasizing the need to recite any mantras nor chanting any Hindu prayers as claimed by the National Fatwa Council. In fact many surviving cancer patients or patients of other sickness had seen significant improvement in the management of their health after taking up Yoga practically by attending its session regularly.

Yoga exercises are purely to promote and enhance health of its practitioners, helps to relieve stress and even lower high blood pressure to prevent heart failure. Same goes to Qi Qong exercise it helped to relieve pain and stress of persons as well as to promote stability in body metabolism as a way to gain better health. So, let me ask, is the so-called Fatwa Council going to ban Muslims from practicing Qi Qong soon for its Taoism and Buddhism influences? Come on, talk sense and think positively! Your thinking and way of live is getting more and more backward and looks like de-civilization is coming into picture when you are practicing dogmatism in the name of a religion.

Well, we knew even if we give our facts right, they would not listen or try to understand it. Anyway, to all my Muslim friends who had long practiced Yoga and it is time to stop when a Fatwa is released. Do not give up, take up Yogi instead!

Wait! Another worry is will the National Fatwa Council ban favourable martial arts like Karate, Judo, Wushu or Silambam in future due to its foreign influence, with Silat to become a sole martial art allowed in this nation one day?

'Projects will not jeopardise Georgetown's heritage status' ~ Malaysiakini

Former Penang executive councillor in charge of tourism Teng Chang Yeow believes that the three high rise hotels approved by the previous state government will not jeopardise Georgetown's status as a Unesco heritage site.

Teng who is also Gerakan secretary-general mentioned that Unesco was aware of the projects and the stringent guidelines has been adhered to so far.

Therefore, Melaka Chief Minister Mohd Ali Rustam should check his facts first before attacking and warning Penang Chief Minister and DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan on the possibility of losing the twin heritage status.

What Ali Rustam had mentioned earlier in the heritage issue had confused and manipulated the actual facts thus, causing angers and confusion amongst the public. Ali Rustam, you'd better clean up you own backyard first before you interfere in other state's administration and affairs.

Heritage crisis and the dilemma in Penang

Well, there is yet another challenge which our Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng will have to undertake in face with the continuous attacks and slandering from Umno and its lackeys in Barisan Nasional on the issues regarding the proposed development of four high rise hotels in the middle of the Penang heritage sites.

According to the Unesco’s committee on heritage sites, Penang will set to loose the award jointly given to both Melaka if the construction of these hotels take place. Recently, we could hear Melaka Chief Minister Ali Rustam warning Guan Eng and his state government not to proceed with the said development for fear of losing the heritage status in his state (Melaka) too. Who was to be blamed in this ongoing crisis?

The situation is that the proposed four high rise hotels project was initially submitted to the previous Gerakan led BN state government and gained its approval soon before the 8 March general elections begin which lead to the defeat of the previous government. Then after the Pakatan Rakyat took control of the state government, Penang state was awarded the World Heritage Status jointly with Melaka by Unesco for its continuous preservation of historical sites in the state. Then Gerakan leaders and its Umno masters came out to claim their credit for the entire effort in ensuring the Unesco award came through.

The previous BN state government actually did not give a clear picture or understanding to the project developers on the guidelines and ways to preserve the heritage sites while allowing its development or constructions to continue, which is where the mistakes came from! The approval of the four high rise hotels by the previous BN state government as actually done in a hurry without any proper references and restrictions brief nor any precautions were taken to prevent the heritage status from being jeopardize by such a radical development.

So, why put the blame on Guan Eng and his Pakatan Rakyat coalition partners instead? Since the new state government was in transition at that time, do they have the choice to reverse or review every single projects that was approved by the defeated BN state government and cancel them immediately when it feels uncomfortable?

The correct answer is No! The Pakatan Rakyat state government cannot do that, as if the cancellation is made, the developers may suffer a very heavy loss and the new state government will have to pay the heavy price should the developers decided to sue the state government for their loss of income and business opportunities in the state. Because of the losses that the developers may suffer as the result of the cancellation, many people may end up losing their jobs and many families may suffer because of their unemployed parents, brothers and sisters.

Then, if unemployment as the result of such stopped projects or failed businesses, crime rate will definitely rise as those who lost their financial dependency may resort to things which are against the law in order to survive. Do we all want to see such thing happening to us, to our family, our children and our lives? Do we want to see the safety and security of our people being threatened because of all these?

Therefore, we would like to urge the Penang people and voters to go back to the roots cause of these problems and judge who were the actual wrong doers! Who gave the approval to this project at the first place and who approved the building plans to enable these developers to commence with their legal papers in order to secure their groundwork for the construction?

Remember what the previous BN-Umno administration had done, many of their approved projects are now being scrutinized for not being transparent with elements of corruption as well as power abuse were also found to have taken place. Because most of these projects involved millions of Ringgit in investments, the new government cannot simply cancel or withhold the approval just for the sake of doing it. Careful review and studies has to be made prior to any decision in order to safeguard the interest of all parties concerned.

We also would like to call upon the Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and his coalition partners to get what is best for the people of Penang to ensure the well being and the household income of the people are looked into. If the heritage status is not going to help our people, then, to Hell with it! Do not hesitate and get things done as soon as possible even if we have to suffer from the condemnation of the BN-Umno, Unesco, the Melaka Chief Minister or even the Tourism Ministry. Remember, such condemnations are short term and it cannot go any further than that. Let it be as long as you ensure the well being of the people and our families are not jeopardized.

If the heritage status does not bring any good nor benefit to the people, why not do it away? In order to preserve the livelihood of our people, we must sacrifice the unimportant ones to achieve them.

Penang Govt should not be blamed

The Penang state government should not be totally blamed on the failure of the King of Tennis tournament recently which had resulted to the damage on the historical Esplanade field.

The event was merely promoted by the State Executive Councillor in charge of Tourism Development, Danny Law's office as an effort to promote Penang as an international tourist destination.

The organiser of the event was actually from the private sector i.e. Ariana Teoh via her company and the Penang Municipal Council (MPPP) merely gave its blessing and collected its revenue from the rental of the said location in hope that this event would eventually promote Penang as an internation arena.

So, if it goes on as planned and held successfully, will it be politicised? I don't think so. But the event failed to come out as planned, and Umno with its coalition partners are all out condemning the failure of this event as the result and doing of the state government. This is in fact maximum politicising in order to discredit the government and the people of Penang.

When Umno, Gerakan and MCA ruled Penang previously, there are millions more of corruptions and power abuse reported within its administration and political offices. Taxpayers' monies are almost spend away during the Umno-Gerakan reign like nobody's business.

Why build a so luxury Seberang Perai Municipal Council (MPSP) complex in Bandar Perda? A five star building as an MPSP headquarters, for what? To promote tourism or to make life more comfortable for its staffs? Do you know, an office cubicle in the MPSP office for each staff cost about RM800 to RM1200 per unit! This is taxpayers' money too. Why wasted so much money to build and design such an expensive office sites?

Taxpayers' monies are supposed to be used to upgrade public infrastructures around the city and areas within its municipal borders, but Umno and BN politicians choose to spend them on unneccessary wonders instead with most of its projects deemed to be luxurious but no benefit to the public at all.

For decades, Umno and BN wasted billions in ringgit and most of them also benefited their division and branch chairmen via rewards of contracts of services and so on. They are much more corrupted then we all expected.

So, Danny Law, be strong and firm in facing such accusation and negative allegation against you. We are all behind you and support whatever effort you are carrying out. So does our Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, keep up your good work.

EPF 8% Means Paying More Income Tax

Here's how the Barisan Nasional government tricked us. They are actually taking our money away from our EPF savings. Let us look at the formula below.

Assume monthly basic salary is RM4000.
- If your monthly EPF contribution is 11% ( RM440 ), taxable income = RM3560, income tax payable = RM77.
- If your monthly EPF contribution is 8% ( RM320 ), taxable income = RM3680, income tax payable = RM109.

Conclusion : If you choose to contribute 8%, you will end up paying more income tax to the government, which will make the government richer. Finance Minister Najib said this measure is meant to boost up the slow-down market, but from this example we see that the money does not go into the market.

Instead the money goes direct into the government's pocket through the greater amount of income tax that we will have to pay. Obviously this measure does not help the market at all.

Do we still want this kind of government that doesn't have the best interest of the people in mind?

Hands off state tourism affairs, Gerakan told

We would like to tell the new Gerakan youth national vice-chief Oh Tong Keong to hands off the state tourism affairs and not to interfere with the current affords and initiatives carried out by State Executive Councillor Danny Law in enhancing his tourism promotions for the state.

As well know, Danny Law has done a great job in ensuring the tourism effects of the states could be enhanced, promoted and making Penang well-known internationally.

Unfortunately, it was the tourism minister Azalina Othman who had been sabotaging the efforts carried out by Danny Law by refusing or withdrawing the supposedly allocated funds to the state and also in the management of policies related to enhancing tourism in the Penang state. Azalina had in the past and present also made many negative remarks on the management of the state tourism in Penang by urging many investors and participants of such and such events not to cooperate with the Penang state government’s efforts and initiatives.

In handling such challenging situation, we would like to ask our Danny Law to be firm and strong in dealing with these bad hats who are out there trying to bring down all of us.

Therefore, the Gerakan youth national vice-chief Oh Tong Keong should know where he is standing right now. Gerakan had all along being a running dog, a servant and a blind follower of the “ketuanan” policies of Umno ever since its inception into the Barisan Nasional coalition front. Even your own party advisor Tun Dr Lim Keng Yaik had also said Gerakan and MCA acted like beggars in the BN when dealing with their supreme master who is Umno, the dominant party in the BN.

So, we urge Oh Tong Keong to clean up his own house first. What you had said earlier had helped Umno to further sabotage the people’s will in Penang. The people here had voted and given the mandate to DAP to run Penang. We also urge Gerakan to come out and work for the betterment of our Penang state and not helping Umno to sabotage and destroy the economy of Penang. Do you want your children to suffer because of your political mileage? We ask you, Oh Tong Keong!

If you still treat Penang as your home, then work with us!

Penang’s move to create a state opposition leader position lauds

We would like to congratulate Penang Chief Minister and DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng for initiating a move to create a state opposition leader position.

The initiation of this position also proves that the DAP led Pakatan Rakyat state government is sincere in promoting its democratic and transparent platform in the state which had been pledged during the previous general elections.

According to Guan Eng, the creation of the opposition leader position is also in line with the state government’s recognition of the opposition’s role in the state to provide check and balance in the administration.

However, state Umno secretary Datuk Azhar Ibrahim was unhappy because the allowance of the state opposition is too little and wanted the state government to also accommodate the opposition leader with an office, a researcher and a clerk.

In response, we would like to ask Datuk Azhar not to be too greedy. Datuk Azhar is asking for too much. When BN was governing the state prior to the general elections, did they recognize the role of the opposition at that time? Did they initiate any effort to accommodate the opposition with an official position previously?

The answer is no! BN never even recognize the role of the oppositions then. So, why acted so double standard in issues related to democratic reforms? In a true democratic platform, Umno is not qualified to talk nor speak on this topic, as the party’s administration from within itself is already undemocratic.

The police failed because IPCMC failed to materialize

Recently, we had seen the police acted harshly against our fellow Pakatan Rakyat MP, State Assemblyman and the latest, a State Executive Councillor. Prior to that, even a State Executive Councillor was detailed under the Internal Security Act for a week at Umno’s instigation.

We could clearly see that the police force of today does too much work on political policing. The majority of the manpower in the force has been much concentrating on assisting Umno to curb the rising influence and popularity of Pakatan Rakyat.

As the result, the force is getting more corrupted and one-sided and listened too much to certain Umno top leaders. The top brass of the force are also seen to be leaning towards the dominant party in the Barisan Nasional in order to prevent the establishment of the Independent Police Misconduct and Complaints Commission (IPCMC). The police special branch’s headcount was increased to carry out these “political” tasks.

Therefore, an “understanding” might have taken place i.e. “make sure you don’t form the IPCMC to control us and we will take care of your political rivals for you” or “if you get IPCMC into the picture, we will increase the crime rates”. So, that is why the proposed IPCMC did not take place but instead a loosely Special Complaints Commission (SCC) was counter-proposed to do away with the original plan.

With this, the police got down to do its intense political policing for Umno by harassing the Pakatan Rakyat leaders and even their state governments. What happened after then?

You all could see it today, here, in front of you, almost daily! The crime rates in our nation are increasing drastically. Armed robbery, murder, rape, snatch thieves, kidnappings and various kinds of threats are happening everyday in our neighborhood, districts, states and the entire nation. Even innocent children are being kidnapped or brutally murdered. Where are the police when our people needed them so much?

The police were supposed to protect us from all these crimes around us but they were not there when we need them. They were busy fighting in politics on behalf of their political masters who are also well known with their racist supremacy, dominancy and neo-Nazi stand.

In this case, Pakatan Rakyat state governments should now start to initiate the establishment of a state level IPCMC each in Penang, Perak, Selangor, Kedah and Kelantan in order to observe and oversee the effectiveness of the police in their respective states.

Concurrently, in order to counter-balance the powers of the police, the Pakatan Rakyat state governments should also look into possibilities of establishing their own Security Force in order to provide effective security measures for their chief ministers and state executive councilors and to support crime prevention efforts by the respective state administrations as well.

The Pakatan Rakyat leaders should jointly come out with a firm resolution to deny the continuous display of power abuse by Umno and the police force onto our peace loving people and community.

Why the multi lingual road sign fuss?

We wish to tell the Penang Chief Minister and DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng, go ahead with your greatest plans to have multi lingual road signs in Penang to promote tourism activities and to enhance the Malaysian image of our state. Have no fear on that!!!

We all know Umno is making so much fuss over this by politicizing the matter in a racist and uncivilized manner. We also know that an Umno delegation from Tanjung division led by its deputy chief Raja Munir Shah had stormed into the MPPP and Deputy Chief Minister’s Office to hand over their protest memorandum on the proposed multi lingual road signs.

So what? These Umno stooges are bulls! They did that for the sake of doing it. They continuously accused the state government of planning to completely do away with road signs in Bahasa Malaysia. Well, who said that? Guan Eng did not say he wanted to delete the Bahasa Malaysia languages from the present road signs in Penang. He only mentioned that he wanted to put additional languages on the existing road signs to enhance and to reflect its multi racial community and identity. This is Malaysian Malaysia!

When DBKL and MBJB put up multi lingual road signs in Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru, why didn’t Umno make the fuss earlier? For your information, certain road signs in Kuala Lumpur are added with Arabic words, besides the alphabets.

So, we want to ask DBKL and Umno now, why put up Arabic words? We all know that Arabs today are closely associated with terrorism and by putting up Arabic words could also symbolize our nation’s support and advancement for terrorism. Do you want us to put that this way, dear Umno?

But instead, we did not say anything on these Arabic words at all, as we believe in peace loving and harmonious society and living together with each other in a very humanistic way, in a Malaysian Malaysia way of life.

So Umno, by continuing behaving like this, we believe one day you will bring our nation back to stone- age and de-civilization. You Umno guys are making a very dangerous move. You are dividing our people and splitting the nation apart with your racist, violence and hate messages across.

These Umno stooges are now behaving more like the apes. We want to remind you, do not turn our nation into a “planet of the apes”!

Ahmad “Kerbau” Ismail given heroic welcome

Suspended Umno member and former Bukit Bendera division chairman Datuk Ahmad “Kerbau” Ismail was given a heroic welcome at his division during its annual general meeting last week at Penang.

At the division’s meeting, Ahmad was also hoisted as a hero and given a weapon called “keris” to continue his violent agenda. Besides, he was also appointed the division’s advisor in which in actual fact would make him a de facto leader of the division as well.

The decision by the Bukit Bendera Umno division to appoint Ahmad as their advisor was seen as a mark of defiant and protest against the supreme council’s decision to suspend his party membership for three years.

As we had all known, many police reports had been lodged against him, but no action was taken against him till today. Instead the person who witness and heard his racist statement and his uncivilized behavior was detained for no reason just because she reported the event!!!

Because of the no police action, this also prompted Ahmad to state in the public that even the prime minister, home minister and the police were afraid of him. Even the deputy prime minister helped him to apologize to the public!!! He again demonstrated his arrogance and defiant manner to the people. Bukit Bendera will not be in peace as long as Ahmad still exists. He is the real threat to the security of Penang state.

The real problem now is Ahmad “Kerbau” Ismail is still a free man and people’s life there are at stake.

Establish State Public Security Force in Pakatan Rakyat states

Based on the recent incident at the Petaling Jaya Civic Centre on 9 November, we had seen the police abruptly attacked a peaceful gathering of some Abolish ISA and BERSIH supporters during their candlelight vigil to celebrate the first anniversary of BERSIH, a coalition of political parties and NGOs for promoting free and fair elections.

Those peaceful people were attacked, beaten up and thrown onto the police black maria truck and taken to the police station later to be locked up in the cell. Among those who were attacked and beaten up were Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua, Kampung Tunku State Assemblyman Lau Weng Sang and Selangor State Executive Councillor Ronnie Liew.

Instead of protecting the public and to ensure their safety, the police force is now seen to be threatening the security of the public. The people no more trust the police force in ensuring security of their neighborhood. Who else we can depend on for safety of our people, our family and children with the continuous increase of criminal activities in our nation, such as murder, rape, assault, snatch thieves and a lot more to name. The worst scenario now is the police are even attacking the public who had gathered from all walks of life at a civic center just to sing Negaraku and to show their patriotism towards the nation.

So, the Pakatan Rakyat State Governments in Penang, Perak, Selangor, Kedah and Kelantan should come forward and come out with a contingency plan to jointly establish a Public Security Force in their respective states to provide better security for their people. Apart from assisting the existing enforcement agency in promoting security in these five states, the Public Security Force should be also tasked as an effective security force to counter the brutality of the currently BN controlled police forced which has been frequently used by the BN government to demonstrate its armed strength in the Pakatan Rakyat states.

The Pakatan Rakyat State Governments should have a security force of their own to protect their state administrations and state controlled infrastructures from being overran or overpowered by the BN federal government’s police force in future. We could see now the current situation, when the new BN-Umno leadership take place next year, some drastic move may be carried out by them to curb the Pakatan Rakyat controlled state governments of its powers and depriving their state executive orders.

In doing this, the BN-Umno government may in future exercise its federal power over these five states by moving its police force into these state administrations by force and retake control of these elected state governments. Who know it may happen, if the BN-Umno feels that their survival is at stake by then.

Therefore, the Pakatan Rakyat states ought to defend themselves from these possible threats from the BN-Umno controlled federal government. A competent and well respected Public Security Force is needed to ensure the security of these states and its people.

Phantom Voters

Remember, during the previous general elections on 8 March, Umno and Barisan Nasional had always denied repeatedly the existence of phantom voters as alleged by members of the Pakatan Rakyat component parties. Even the Elections Commission denied the phantom voters allegation.

So, were there any phantom voters anyway? Let us look at the currently ongoing Umno’s divisional and branch elections which are highly publicized almost daily. Factional fighting, chairs throwing, boycotting, reports of unjust policies and quarrels are among the most happened incidents at the annual general meetings of the Umno divisions and branches.

Another latest allegation by local Umno divisional and branch leaders in their tussle to defend their positions are the existence of phantom voters in their divisional elections planted by certain Umno state and national leaders in order to take control of certain divisions.

As such, local Umno leaders had now openly admitted that the existence of phantom voters even at their party’s divisional and branch levels. They had also openly admitted that such groups called “phantoms” which are implanted by certain leaders to grab hold of some divisions really exist and evidence were even forwarded to the top Umno leadership as “complaint” against rival factions.

The Election Commission denied the allegation of phantom voters known as “pengundi hantu” in Bahasa Malaysia by saying that “ghost” cannot vote in elections. But interestingly to know that, there are a lots of “ghost” who could help certain top leaders to gain control at Umno divisional elections.

So, during general elections when Umno ferried thousand of phantom voters into opposition strongholds to vote, the Election Commission denied the facts, but when top Umno leaders ferried thousand of phantom voters into their party’s divisional elections, the Umno members admitted that phantom voters does exist in their party for the sake of certain party leaders.

Some disgruntled local Umno leaders even went to an extend to forward their complaints to the party headquarters to prove that phantom voters truly exist in their division due to factional tussle for positions in the party.

For your understanding, phantom voters means voters who does not belong to the place or district and merely brought in to vote during elections. In most cases phantom voters were not locals of the place or district where they were registered as.

As for Umno’s case, a party member may be residing in one state or district but casts his vote in another state or district during the party elections be it branch or divisional ones. This is also called phantom voters.

So, the Election Commission is always avoiding this topic in order to cover up for Barisan Nasional but it was eventually blown up by Umno leaders themselves during their party elections.

Court orders Raja Petra's release ~ Malaysiakini

The Shah Alam High Court this morning ruled that the detention of well-known blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin under the ISA was illegal and ordered his immediate release.

So, the court had given its verdict, RPK's detention was illegal, null and void. The fact was, the BN government didn't even know if their actions or policies were against the law.

That means, the BN government of today rules by its political comfort and not within the law. The executive branch of the federal government now runs as what the political leaders dictates and saw it fits to their pleasures, especially Umno who now feels the heat of its unpopularity because of its continuous stance to maintain their art of supremacy on the others.

Umno still have not realise that they were the rulers of the past. Their conduct of governance are completely outdated with no opportunities of reforms or rejuvenation. To maintain their grip in power, they had resorted to the rule of the jungle to uphold the Greatness of their ethnicity and identity, by continuously saying without Umno there will be no such ethnic anymore.

What are they saying now is to associate Umno with their race in order to survive the current political trend which is moving towards a more non-racial approach.

So RPK, carry on with your job now and show us you could do it !

Fong and Chong suspended from Parliament, what about Tajuddin ?

Batu Gajah member of parliament Fong Po Kuan and Bandar Kuching MP Chong Chien Jen were suspended from Parliament for the rest of the day for disobeying the House speaker.

So, what about Tajuddin Abdul Rahman (Umno-Pasir Salak) for calling M Kulasegaran (DAP-Ipoh Barat) a "bloody bastard" during a heated argument in the Dewan Rakyat yesterday. He should be suspended too !

Why is Tajuddin "Bastard" Abdul Rahman only being let off with a retraction of statement? This is unjust. The Dewan Rakyat speaker is a BN man. So, he is sure never to suspend any of his fellow BN men from the parliament.

A rubber stamp parliament.

Pak Lah : Anyone also can be a PM

According to the prime minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi today, anyone in Malaysia be it from the minority group or ethnic can also become a Prime Minister.

Pak Lah made this statement after he was asked to comment on Barrack Obama's victory in the recent US presidential elections. Obama was in fact from the US' minority African-American community.

The question is, is Pak Lah serious on this? Does he mean it or it is just a gesture of his just to give some words on Obama? What will Umno say then? Well, when Najib takes over in March next year, will it become "anyone from Umno also can be a PM"? Then some comments on the PM's position with racial jargon will rise again in order to protect their so-called "ketuanan" of theirs.

Let us stay tune and watch their show then.

Umno still play racist

Despite its massive losses in the 8 March general elections, Umno and its leaders are still well-versed in their racist jargons with a number of racist remarks and statements increasing day by day.

With their party elections coming closer, these Umno leaders are expected to intensify their onslaught on their BN coalition partners as well as the Pakatan Rakyat parties. Because of the continuous disunity among the Umno leaders and their way of active play on the racial issue, former minister in the prime minister's department, Datuk Zaid Ibrahim resigned from both his cabinet post and his seat in the senate.

Recently after Zaid voice his discontent on certain Umno leaders, he was condemned and urged to leave the Malay race instead! What is this all about? Why ask him to renounce his ethnicity? First of all can a person renounce his ethnicity? It is totally impossible! Those Umno leaders who made these remarks and statement, Datuk Syed Hamid Albar, Tan Sri Muhammad Taib and the rest are really greatest fools on earth. What right do they have to request Zaid to renounce his ethnicity?

Are they trying to cover-up their weaknesses and positions in Umno because of the upcoming party elections? Such leaders, who are willing to sacrifice unity for the sake of enhancing or maintaining their political positions ought to be kicked out from both the party and the country's political arena.

We cannot afford to have the Nazism and Fascism continue to ruin our nation.

Zaid resigned as Senator

The former de-facto law minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, after quiting his cabinet position recently had now resigned as member of the Senate with immediate effect.

Datuk Zaid reasoned that his resignation was in line with his current situation where he no longer hold any ministerial position in the cabinet.

Datuk Zaid became a critic of Pak Lah's ageing government ever since after his resignation because his initiated reforms in the judiciary and race relations failed to get the nod from most of the conservative Umno top leaders.
