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

Selangor's new Exco line-up

PKR appears to have gained the upper hand at the expense of PAS, after the unfortunate episode of removing Khalid Ibrahim which turned into a constitutional crisis in Selangor. The key players within Pakatan were put between the constitution and sedition and only a compromise favouring the royalty helps to diffuse what could have been a prolonged stalemate and possible untoward incidents.

I presume DAP Hannah Yeoh's position as Speaker remains intact with the following report:

'New Selangor Menteri Besar Mohamed Azmin Ali has revealed a revamped state executive council (exco) line-up today.

Speaking at a press conference at the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah building here this morning, the announcement saw some changes being made.

The new line-up saw deputy speaker Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad of PKR dropped to the exco position with the deputy speaker position was reserved for PAS.
The changes made also saw PAS losing a spot to PKR leading the latter to hold four positions, with DAP and PAS holding three respectively.'

'The line-up consists of Dr Daroyah Alwi (PKR), Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad (PKR), Amirudin Shari (PKR), Ganabatirau Veraman (PKR), Datuk Teng Chang Kim (DAP), Elizabeth Wong (DAP), Ean Yong Hian Wah (DAP), Iskandar Abdul Samad (PAS), Dr Ahmad Yunus Hairi (PAS) and Zaidy Abdul Talib (PAS).'
