By Jayanath Appudurai 23 Feb 2022 Two years on, They are yet to deliver, On the promised land of ethno-religious unity! Instead they continue to play their game of thrones, With nary a thought for “mempertahankan maruah bangsa dan agama”; And oblivious to the real “ penderitaan of the Rakyat”! The Rakyat now, know better. […]

Dear Ronnie Liu

April 29, 2021


God’s peace be with you. Malaysiakini reports today that you have called upon DAP to merge with PKR and Amanah, with a view to “creating a more representative and bigger multi-racial party”. “All three should dissolve and merge into one pluralistic party with a progressive outlook. I really hope that one day Pakatan Harapan will […]

Dear Maria Chin

April 27, 2021


God’s peace be with you. Sorry, no more YB prefixes for elected reps. And I dont mean Yang Berhormat, which we abandoned a long time ago. I mean Yang Berkhidmat. Post Sheraton, we are just not too sure, with few exceptions, who our elected reps actually serve. I caught Ong Kian Ming’s and Kelvin Yii’s […]

We knew this day will come, We lived in pious hope, that it would not. All the signs, that it was an ill-fated, Coalition of Hope, were there, for those who understood, the […]
