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

Who wants to be PM?

We all know that the coming GE13 is basically a contest between BN caretaker PM Najib Tun Razak and challenger from Pakatan Rakyat, Anwar Ibrahim who is expected to be PM if Pakatan wins.

Looking at the picture below, can you see how much the 6-year younger Najib looks older than Anwar? Najib is only going to be 60 this July and Anwar 66 the following month. 

Despite the huge and varied responsibilities of PM, there are no shortage of takers. Anyway, let's look at the race between them according to a survey...

According to a Malaysiakini report:

43pct back Anwar as PM, 39pct for Najib

"Anwar Ibrahim has a slight edge over Najib Abdul Razak as a prime ministerial candidate, according to a survey by Universiti Malaya's Democratic and Election Centre (Umcedel).

The survey, involving 1,407 respondents residing in Peninsular Malaysia in early April, indicated that 43 percent of voters believe Anwar was qualified to be prime minister while 24 percent of voters disagreed and the rest were unsure.

As for Najib, 39 percent of voters said he was qualified to be the prime minister, while 31 percent disagreed. Another 30 percent were unsure.

Interestingly, 54 percent of Malay respondents said Anwar was qualified to be prime minister while only 28 percent said the same for Najib.

Among first-time voters, 48 percent of respondents believed Anwar to be qualified as prime minister while 25 percent of respondents said the same for Najib.

Compared to Umcedel's last survey results in January, Najib's rating had dropped four points while Anwar and increased by one point.

In terms of Malay respondents, Najib's rating had dropped by 18 points while Anwar's rating had rose by nine points..."


In case anyone wish to imagine what it's like to be Najib at breakfast time...

cakap cakap...breakfast with Najib!

"Now tell me this…if somehow you wake up this morning as Najib Tun Razak…yes the same Najib Tun Razak married to Rosmah Mansor….how will it be?

Now please do not start by insisting that there are better things to aspire to than to be sitting across Rosmah over breakfast! Let us get past Rosmah and on to the Nasi Lemak with the Udang Galah fried in sambal….then decaf Nescafe and then the Alphonso mangos from India….already things are getting a bit better …betul tak? Do what Najib do...focus on the mangos not on Rosmah!
Now what would you be thinking of first? How goes the election?

At the last count 61 (yes sixty one...enam puloh satu!) UMNO members has filed their nomination papers as independent candidates for the May 5 general election!

Thank God for the diapers you are wearing...or else you would have to be changing trousers every time you wet your trousers hearing of these worrying news! Ini belum cerita pasal Mahathir and Muhyiddin lagi....Jesus Christ with friends like them, who needs enemies!  

Now how goes the Ceramah? Despite all the bottles of mineral water, beras and other give aways at BN ceramahs all reports coming in from your people on the ground and Special Branch indicates and confirms that this Jelajah Pakatan Harapan Rakyat by DSAI is drawing in the crowds! Anwar's iternary is impressive.... "
