May 19, 2014


I really think that if she can avoid getting booby-trapped by party politics, once we have removed UMNO / BN from Putrajaya, there may come a time when we will see Nurul Izzah ascend to the office of prime minister. And if that should come to pass, and I had my way, we should allow […]

  Who’s we? ABU and the Rakyat Times. In March, HERE and HERE, I blogged that ABU needed volunteers and that Rakyat Times needed volunteer citizen journos. Fairly decent response.

May 5, 2014
