In the wake of the Sheraton Move, the collapse of the PH government after Dr M’s bizarre moves, first, resigning as PM, and then seeking to resurrect himself as head of a unity government, and finally Muhyiddin being formally appointed as the 8th PM, I had the opportunity to ask of a senior leader of […]

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

May 17, 2020

With modifications, I am re-hashing something I wrote 4 years ago. First, lets get definitions out of the way.

I wrote publicly to Anwar in this blog on 26th September, 2018. Amongst other things, this is what I said. “Please understand that post 9th May, 2018, we, the rakyat, are no longer the people so long suppressed by BN. We fully understand and have experienced the sheer power in our hands when we come […]

It was showtime at the Padang Timur, PJ on 14th October, 2017 by Pakatan Harapan. I would translate this into English to read “For the love of Malaysia, end kleptocracy” I have 2 questions to pose to the leadership of Pakatan Harapan, but first, and for the avoidance of any doubt, let me say this. I […]
