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

Government fed by the people

Trengganu crisis? No problem at all if BN had its usual ways of solving problems

What started like a bombshell when the replaced MB announced that he and another ADUN had quit Umno and become Independents, fizzled out within hours.

The original tally of BN17 vs PR15 suddenly became BN15; PR15 and IND2. Soon, another Umno ADUN announced he too had quit Umno, and it became BN14; PR15 and IND3.

Well, like always, where there is a slim majority, a few ADUNs can be king-makers. Sure enough, for this emergency, PM could not continue his elegant silence like in other matters. Mr. Kautim, used his magic, and everything is back to normal, exactly like before! Just like a game, when it is over, start again. Simple as that!

Ex-MB said he apologised to PM and PM apologised to him for a certain misunderstanding which caused the rash action, and even the other two fellas also retracted their statements. We must take our hats off to our PM, Father of Kautim.

From a legal point, Mr Surewin, the Umno lawyer explained how the situation was different from Perak. But fortunately, there are different opinions too, and the following is just one of them...

From The Ant Daily:

Desperate Umno pulling a fast one to hold on to T'ganu? 


'Indeed it seems that the Umno-led Barisan Nasional is willing to bend the truth in its desperation to hold on to power in Terengganu.

Constitutional law expert Abdul Aziz Bari has pointed out two fallacies in BN’s argument that it was business as usual for the BN Terengganu government after three Umno assemblymen announced their resignations from the party.'

'First, he debunked claims that Terengganu’s appointed State Assembly Speaker, who is not an assemblyperson, counts as one seat for BN...'

'Secondly, he deflected the reasoning by Umno’s lawyers that any resignation is only complete once the physical letters of resignation reach the secretary-general or the secretariat office.

“It is really funny to see the MB claim that the guys were still Umno members. If that is the case then the Perak 2009 coup d’etat would not have taken place!” said Abdul Aziz...'
