The arrest of four legal aid volunteer lawyers for distributing the Redbook pamphlet was clearly wrong.

You don’t have that power, Home Minister!

Pusing-Pusing MCA

After all that, MCA is now back to square one. We had the President sacking the Deputy. We then had the Deputy retaliating and demanding for an EGM. The President’s men also put in a few motions. It was narrowed down to 3 motions. They then fought it out on 10th October 2009. The President [...]

What is this 1 Malaysia camp at Kuala Dipang in Perak? If not for that unfortunate death of the 3 girls, many of us wouldn’t know of this camp. How can the Government even consider sending kids as young as that age to camps, to teach about this concept called 1 Malaysia, which until now [...]

The Enigma of Democracy: MCA and UMNO

The last 48 hours in Malaysia saw the power of democracy. At MCA’s EGM on October 10, 2009, Ong Tee Keat was knocked out by a no-confidence motion; but Chua Soi Lek was not reinstated as Deputy (though re-admitted as member).

UMNO is the cancer of Malaysia

UMNO is the cancer of Malaysia

Amazing?! For the 2nd time in a row, UMNO chooses a candidate tainted with corruption. They chose Rohaizat Othman at the recent by-election at Permatang Pasir. Rohaizat was disbarred as a lawyer for misusing clients’ funds.
