Damn near fell for it, Pak Lah!

October 9, 2008


Even as I’ve been ever so critical of Pak Lah in this blog for his failure to deliver on his pre-2004 election promises, still I’ve always felt that he made those promises sincerely. Seemed to me that what went wrong was Pak Lah got caught between a desire to bring about those reforms, on the […]

Thanks, Raymond, for spilling the beans and for staying on in BN!

September 22, 2008


So much for Pak Lah wanting a free and independent ACA! Former SAPP deputy president Raymond Tan ratted on Saturday that Pak Lah was so peeved that Yong Teck Lee had the audacity to moot a no-confidence motion against him that he wanted ACA to pick Yong up. However, so Raymond says, he got on […]

The last days of a government out of touch with the people

September 22, 2008


NST online reported yesterday that Radio24, a radio station run by a ministry agency, was being investigated for having allegedly gone on the air on a sensitive issue. The sensitive issue? Radio24 ran an interactive programme, “Which is more important, the transition of power from Pak Lah (Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi) to Datuk Seri […]

Nailing the coffin

September 11, 2008


‘When you are lied to the first time, you tend to get upset because you  have been lied to. When you are lied to by the same party many times, you would not only get even more upset and angry but you would also develop a sense of distrust of the lying party. However, what […]

Message from Penang, Pak Lah!

The walls do seem to be tumbling down around him. And it doesn’t look like Kj’s horses and men can put Ole Big Ears together again. Click the image to read the report

Pak Lah, you owe us big time!

April 16, 2008


Yes, Pak Lah, you’re going down. Meanwhile, your pre-election promises of 2004 remain outstanding. Yes, you owe us big time. Can’t speak for the others, but if you can see the following through before you go, I’ll treat your slate with me as wiped clean. 1. Give us the Commission for the appointment and promotion […]

Of men in denial & emerging maggots from the UMNO carcass!

April 7, 2008


Infighting and implosions in UMNO have again and again proven to be a source of great revelation to the rakyat. Take the one that followed Anwar’s sacking in 1998. The accusations and cross-accusations that followed. The juicy details that emerged during the court trials, exposing so many weaknesses in our judicial system, our AG’s chambers […]

Who will lead the pack on the morning after?

March 28, 2008


I’m referring to the morning after the day that Pak Lah finds himself dumped by the wayside by UMNO. Everything seems to be pointing to this as a foregone conclusion.  Whether this will happen in the coming days, or by way of a ‘no confidence’ motion carried in Parliament when it convenes, or at the […]

A cabinet forged to self-preserve, not to build the foundations of national unity

March 20, 2008


Sure, Ole Big Ears seems to have trimmed off a whole lot of useless fat from his last cabinet. Pro-Najib fat, it would seem. And he’s merged several ministries, presumably to allow for this fat-reduction move. But merge National Unity with Culture, Arts & Heritage? Does not national unity, after 38 divisive years of BN rule, merit its own […]
