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 appear 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

If you're not going to speak up, how is the world supposed to know you exist? “Orang boleh pandai setinggi langit, tapi selama ia tidak menulis, ia akan hilang di dalam masyarakat dan dari sejarah.” - Ananta Prameodya Toer (Your intellect may soar to the sky but if you do not write, you will be lost from society and to history.)

A short comment before I join the coffee shop talk


The final tally of GE13:
Parliamentary seats:    BN 133; and  PR 89; Total 222
State (excl. Sarawak):  BN 275; and  PR 230; Total 505

Having watched NTV7, I got the impression even the results were intentionally slow and stage-managed. The bias was obvious when Penang, Selangor and Kelantan won convincingly, yet no mention of them at all! It was like a BN-only results centre, waiting for the all-important 112 seats clinched so that EC Chairman could announce BN's victory, followed by Najib's subdued victory announcement at Umno headquarters. What a hollow victory, when we consider the dirty tricks they pulled during campaigning, in voter registration, and voting by dubious voters.

Bersih is compiling all the complaints, ensuring they are backed with sufficient evidence which will confirm this GE as the dirtiest ever.

At one point, it was reported unofficially that PR in Perak had 29 seats, but the final tally shows BN 31 against PR 28, exactly like before the GE13 , but after the power grab. GE 12 results were originally PR 31 against 28. I am sure the Perak PR leaders will not accept this without strong protests with evidence of irregularities. Earlier on, FRU trucks were already at the Perak State Secretariat... must be the only state with such necessity.
