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

Ex-MP Fong Po Kuan is not defending Batu Gajah in GE13

According to The Malaysian Insider:

DAP’s Fong quits Batu Gajah defence

"DAP firebrand Fong Po Kuan announced she will not defend her Batu Gajah federal seat, just as the Election Commission (EC) proclaimed the polling date for Election 2013.

The three-term lawmaker made the declaration today after saying she had notified the senior DAP leadership, The Star reported on its website.

“This is my own decision and I thank my constituents, my party and supporters for giving me a chance to represent them in Parliament,” Fong (left) told the newspaper..."



From Malaysia Today:

Fong not contesting in GE13

 Batu Gajah MP Fong Po Kuan will not be contesting for any seat in the 13th general election.

She cited personal reasons for her sudden departure from mainstream politics.

“I have informed party adviser and chairman, Lim Kit Siang and Karpal Singh, of my intention way back in September itself,” Fong said in a statement.

However, she vowed to play her role as a DAP leader to ensure Pakatan Rakyat captures federal power in the general election.

She also conveyed her appreciation to the party and voters of the Batu Gajah parliamentary constituency for giving her the opportunity to serve them since 1999.

“I would like to thank reporters and civil servants who have assisted me in serving my constituents over the years,” said Fong.

On what is her future plans, Fong said with a chuckle, “Look for a job.”
