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

Yammy to Dr M: My daughter is just like yours

TELUK INTAN, May 20 — Yammy Samat told Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today that her daughter Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud is very much like his own daughter Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir, whose social activist work has put her on a collision course with her father on a number of issues.

Yammy, an Umno loyalist since she was 18, told Dr Mahathir that she had raised Dyana Sofya to be like his son Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir, also an Umno man, but the strong-willed 26-year-old chose a different path for herself.

“I tried my very best to bring up Dyana to be like Mukhriz, but when she grew up, she turned out to be like Marina,” Yammy told The Malay Mail Online in an interview today.'

'Yammy, who was Umno Ipoh secretary back from 1976 to 1980, said the Malay party used to give young women opportunities, but when Umno Baru came along, such opportunities disappeared.

“They didn’t want young women to disturb Wanita, so they created Puteri,” said Yammy.

“Now, don’t even dream of a woman becoming Umno president,” the Umno member added.

Under the BN government, the Umno president is usually appointed as prime minister.

Yammy also said she lost her job as a clerk with Umno in 1987 after she sided with Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah during the Kelantan prince’s contest against Dr Mahathir for the Umno presidency, which Tengku Razaleigh had narrowly lost.

“They told me to work for Ku Li,” she said, using Tengku Razaleigh’s nickname.

Yammy then joined Semangat 46, the splinter party that Tengku Razaleigh had subsequently founded. Semangat 46 was dissolved in 1996 and its members then rejoined Umno.

“I was humiliated when they sacked me just because of Ku Li. That’s Umno for you. All the staff were sacked. You want my daughter to be like that?” said Yammy.'
