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

EC does not encourage Malaysians in Singapore to come back to vote?

Wong Chin Huat has pointed out the following in Facebook:

Some disgusting creatures try to intimidate Malaysians in Singapore - whose number may reach 200,000 -- from coming back to vote.

In the news clip below, Sin Chew Jit Poh reported that the EC reminds foreigners not to ferry Malaysian voters to polling booths with vehicles with foreign registration plates and urges the Foreign Ministry to investigate. It is most shameless that a constitutional body whose job is to facilitate elections actually try its best to deter franchise.

To my knowledge, there is no law - certainly not in Election Offenses Act 1954 - that prohibits use of foreign cars in elections. If you plan to come home in an overseas-registered vehicle, please be ready with all relevant documents related to car ownership. And get ready with your video cameras should your vehicle be stopped. I am quite sure that there will be lawyers who are willing to take up your case should you be illegally stopped or harassed. Keep calm because you are not wrong by law.

You bet it would have been ok if the vehicle was plastered with BN logos.

Najib still thinks BN can be principled and honourable?

The people working there should be fired.
