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

Unprecedented road show to explain Anwar's case

As Umno Youth leader, Khairy thinks he needs to do something about the bad publicity created by Anwar's conviction and sentenced to five years in jail.

In my humble opinion, Shafee is well known as Umno's lawyer and he was appointed ad hoc lead prosecutor in Anwar's case, without regard to what the public think about it. I remember him as the one who boasted that he could 'nail Anwar within 2 to 3 hours'. He even sought to increase the jail sentence from 5 years. With so much hatred and vindictiveness in him, it is only natural that most members of the public hated him. Therefore, opportunistic Khairy might think he is going to gain from having a road show with Shafee, ostensibly to try and explain the case. I think it is going to backfire on Khairy instead. The more they try to explain, those who have already made up their minds will only be reminded of the cruelty in the persecution and hate them more.

In The Malaysian Insider:

Umno’s turn to go public on Anwar’s sodomy case, says Khairy

Barisan Nasional (BN) will be going on a nationwide road show, which will feature Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, to explain the Federal Court judgment on Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's sodomy case now that the judiciary process has ended.

Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin said that the party has been accused and criticised for orchestrating a political conspiracy against Anwar since he was first charged in 2008, but it has kept silent all these years.

"We have kept silent for six years because the trial was in progress, fearing that we would be in contempt. We waited for the case to be over," he told some 300 people at a dialogue in Petaling Jaya tonight.

"Now that the case is over, do you expect us, as a political party, to keep quiet?" The dialogue tonight also featured Shafee, who was the deputy public prosecutor in the Anwar case, which ended last week after the Federal Court affirmed the appellate court's conviction.
