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

A bit on Downton Abbey's author, Julian Fellowes

It takes a British aristocrat, educated in private and public schools, and with an MA in English Literature (Cambridge), with intimate knowledge of the history of British aristocracy, to be able to write Downton Abbey.

"Julian Alexander Kitchener-Fellowes, Baron Fellowes of West StaffordDL (born 17 August 1949), known professionally as Julian Fellowes, is an English actor, novelist, film director and screenwriter, as well as a Conservative peer."


On 28 April 1990, Fellowes married Emma Joy Kitchener, LVO (born 1963; a Lady-in-Waiting to HRH The Princess Michael of Kent),[11] the great-grandniece of Herbert Kitchener, 1st Earl Kitchener. Fellowes has publicly expressed his dissatisfaction that the proposals to change the rules of royal succession were not extended to peerages, which would have allowed his wife to succeed as 4th Countess Kitchener;[12] instead, the title became extinct on her uncle's death due to the lack of male heirs. On 9 May 2012 the Queen issued a Royal Warrant of Precedenceallowing Lady Fellowes to enjoy the same rank and title of the daughter of an Earl, as if her late father had survived his brother and therefore succeeded to the title.[13]
They have one son, the Hon. Peregrine Charles Morant Kitchener-Fellowes (born 1991). The family resides in Dorset [14] and on 15 October 1998 they changed their surname from Fellowes toKitchener-Fellowes.[15][16]"

Downton Abbey author Julian Fellowes says Lady Mary sex scandal based on real life

"In the storyline, Kemal Pamuk is a Turkish diplomat who visits Downton Abbey and dies of a heart attack while having sex with the earl's eldest daughter, Lady Mary.
His corpse is then smuggled back to his room by Lady Mary's mother and a maid.
Mr Fellowes said that rather than being a work of fiction, the story was inspired by an incident that took place in a great English house around 1890.
"That story came from a friend of my wife and I who had a great house," he said. "About 15 years ago, he was looking through a diary of a great aunt, and in it was this account of a diplomat."
