How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

Who said time stops for no man?

In Bolehland, anything is possible...

'In a move not seen in over 22 years, Parliament was forced to literally freeze time at the stroke of midnight to allow it to pass a backlog of Bills and motions.

"The digital clocks went blank in the chamber," described Rasah MP Anthony Loke when met later.

This was in order to ensure the legislative body had enough of time to pass an amendment Bill and five motions that made up the remaining government business on the final day of this sitting.

The digital clock was turned off during the debate for the Capital Markets And Services (Amendments) Bill 2012.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Nazri Abdul Aziz started the ball rolling by tabling a motion under Standing Order 90 (2) which allows for the House to suspend its regulations under extenuating circumstances.

The motion was to "suspend the enforcement of Standing Order 12 to allow the House to conclude business that we need to finish today".

Marathon sitting

Standing Order 12 regulates the time that Parliament begins and ends its sitting.

Its suspension meant that in practice the Dewan Rakyat can ignore the passage of time and continue with its business until it is all concluded...'

Parliament's clock frozen to rush Bills
