At 3.30pm yesterday, Kho Jabing was executed in Singapore soon after the Singapore Court of Appeal dismissed his eleventh-hour application to stay the execution. __________________________________ “…He was born in 1984, in a taxi on the way to hospital. He grew up in a longhouse…He worked on a family plantation, then as a technician laying cables in Miri […]

How many does it take to constitute a 3rd Force?

May 19, 2016

First, lets get definitions out of the way. The freedictionary explains the phrase “THIRD FORCE” to mean, amongst others, “one or more nations, political parties, or other organizations occupying an intermediate position between two other opposed forces”. Could we expand this to allow for individuals? Or just 1? Seriously, I’ve never needed numbers behind me […]

The last I wrote to you through this blog was on 18th August, 2008, 8 days before polling day in Permatang Pauh. Then I wrote to say that I was going to “take a chance with you”. Much has taken place since, and our personal circumstances have changed radically. You now languish in prison on […]

NST online reports my friend, Perak DAP chairman Nga Kor Ming, as saying that ‘Pakatan Harapan is confident of winning the Kuala Kangsar by-election provided that it […]

Treat the symptoms or rid the cancer?

A cancer blights the nation. Stage 3. Najib? 1MDB? These are the symptoms. I reckon the first signs of this cancer showed up some time in the 60’s, when the unconstitutional  notion of Bumi / non-Bumi was introduced into the national psyche. Divide and rule, remember? Then, round about 1973, the Alliance morphed into Barisan Nasional, bringing on board, […]

I believe that a very small fraction of the world population controls much of the world’s wealth. In Malaysia, its no different. The largest part of the population, the working class, are short changed, given so little of that which is produced in this oil and gas nation. Yet, they form very much the backbone […]
