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

A couple of comments from Kim Quek on PAC Report in Facebook

"What kind of befuddled logic is that? The AG report on 1MDB was classified on the ground that its confidentiality should be preserved until it is tabled in Parliament later so that the latter would have the privilege of being the first to view it. Now the speaker of Parliament refuses to have this report tabled on the ground that it is a classified document.
In other words, the document was classified for the sake of Parliament, but Parliament is now turning around and say: Sorry, I can’t touch the document because it is classified.
Isn’t the AG report meant for Parliament as the first reader and deliberator of the controversial issues that have now engulfed the nation and reverberating around the world?
Isn’t the AG report intended to reveal the truth to the people who own 1MDB as well as the entire country?
If this report is not meant for Parliament and the people, then who is it meant for?
And who classified this document? Will he have the decency to stand up and answer to the nation now?"

"This part of the PAC reports shows in unmistakable term who the real boss of 1MDB is.
CEO Shahrol was but a messenger boy for Najib and the board of directors mere minions whose unhappiness over the shocking hanky-panky that endangered billions of ringgit was immaterial to the real decision maker Najib.
After all, besides being chairman of the advisory board, Najib is also the Minister of Finance, whose ministry wholly owns 1MDB; and on top of that, he is the only person whose approval to all 1MDB investments and major transactions are mandatory under the company’s M & A.
Under the circumstances, it is shocking that PAC should have pointed its gun at poor Shahrol instead of the monster behind him. Equally disappointing is PAC euphemising criminality as “weakness”.
PAC is supposed to be a bi-partisan watchdog to ensure financial accountability for the nation. What have the opposition members done – kow towing to the ruling members?
