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

Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright - until you hear them speak.

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

Government fed by the people

PM's unauthorised use of so-called endorsement by Che Rosli?

A few days ago, on national television, PM Najib quoted in particular, PAS MP, Dr. Che Rosli, as a nuclear expert, who confirmed Lynas's waste materials as not radioactive and safe. It gave any ordinary viewer the impression that Che Rosli endorses the project without any conditions. PM even mentioned Che Rosli went against his party's views, and therefore must be really independent and credible. Aren't we used to PM's selective use of individuals' opinions to suit his party or personal interests? Anyone who has anything bad to say about the opposition in general, Anwar in particular, is welcome to appear on national television to gain a few moments of glory. Suddenly, turncoats who were formerly close to PKR leaders have lots of beans to spill, and their close association was supposed to be credentials to their statements. But in the case of Dr. Che Rosli, his views taken without his reservations were much welcome to support the cause of the Lynas project which many believed was a big mistake to start with. The biased 5BN + 1BNfriendly MPs of the PSC certainly needed someone from the opposition to shore up their already expected views in support of the project. But we never get to read in the mainstream papers nor watch on television the full statements from Dr. Che Rosli himself. Instead of his endorsement, this is what he is saying...

"PAS's Hulu Langat member of parliament Dr Che Rosli Che Mat has warned of legal action against those who claimed that he supported the controversial Lynas Advance Material Plant (LAMP) rare-earth refinery in Gebeng, Pahang.
“I have stated that my earlier statement only covers a small portion but if it involves the whole operation of LAMP, clearly it will be unsafe to operate,” he said.
Che Rosli , a nuclear scientist had earlier agreed that the radiation level for LAMP was low as stated by the parliamentary select committee comprised of Barisan Nasional members of parliament.
However, he had called for a proper lab to thoroughly and scientifically examine the plant's safety.
Che Rosli said he hoped no parties would use his name or statement in parliament to say that Lynas plant was safe in Kuantan..."
Don't use my name to push through Lynas: PAS MP
