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 appears 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

DAP's election error: no end to it?

I see it as a mistake by someone in charge of tabulating party election results. What an impact it causes to the party for someone's carelessness! Political opponents were quick to grab this opportunity to question DAP's ability to administer the country for just one person's mistake! Are we to expect the top leaders to be supervising the tabulation of figures to ensure no mistake? Surely, such a task had to be delegated to someone and it was just unfortunate for the party that there were discrepancies due to computer glitches or whatever it was.

The latest suggestion came from a branch chairman who thinks a fresh election should be held to put an end to the controversies.

I wish there is a clear explanation of how the mistake came about. It can be in the form of step-by-step figures showing how it happened, or better still, using a video presentation. So far, explanation using description seems to create more confusion and doubt.
