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

Most damning report against MB Khalid Ibrahim

It all started from his Rm66 million bank loan problem? If this anonymous (unless Mailbag is the name of someone!) report is true, then it spells the end of his political career in PKR. But with the impending party elections in which he is vying for Deputy President post, this could just be one of the usual poison letters by supporters of his rivals.

On a lighter note, I cannot help being reminded of his first time as PKR candidate in a by-election in Ijok. At the end of his campaign speech (he is not known to be a good orator), he actually said, 'Undi Barisan Nasional'! Well, he lost in that election, not necessarily because of that unforgivable mistake.

Excerpt from Does PR Know? Khalid's fishy deals with Umno lawyer, Najib adviser & tycoon Danny Tan Malaysia Chronicle

'Selangor MB Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim must have been feeling as if the walls were closing in on him. His luck had run out. The MB’s abrasive style, aloofness and unwillingness to listen to anyone but himself had alienated all his allies but for a few sycophants. Talk was rife that his number was up, and the tripartite Pakatan Rakyat was ganging up to oust him.

He had managed to buy time with his cynical decision to hand out huge pay rises to state assemblymen, but even this goodwill quickly dissipated and he has of late drawn a lot of heat regarding his mishandling of recent issues:

> Doing a secretive deal with the BN Government on Langat 2 water after years of fighting to delay the project
> Favouring the UMNO-linked Puncak group in the water companies buyout after years of accusing them of greed, mismanagement and default
> Giving state approval for the controversial KIDEX tollway project
> Weak handling of the confiscated Bibles issue
> Giving a sweetheart deal to Danny Tan’s Tropicana (formerly Dijaya) Corp.'
