Just after 4pm yesterday, The Malay Mail reported this most bizarre news : the 18th May Dewan Rakyat sitting, the first since the collapse of the PH government and Muhyiddin’s ascension to the position of prime minister had only one order of business : the Agong’s royal address. The nation is facing a pandemic such […]

The Bersatu president, now the PM of the backdoor gomen, is openly co-operating with UMNO. Bersatu youth have, however, declined to go the way of their president, holding out that they want to return to Pakatan Harapan. Does Bersatu still have a chairman? Is Dr M still the chairman? If he is, come the sitting […]

If this backdoor gomen is going to hartal our parliament, should we not hartal this backdoor gomen?

Not sure what hartal is? Without any internet, phones, mobile or otherwise, fax or photostat machines,Malayans pulled off an amazing hartal on 20th October, 1947. Just goes to show what a united people can accomplish. I am going to share a short video of how that one day protest in Malaya was. You should watch […]

Late March, Ismail Sabri urged members of the migrant workforce in the country to come forward and be tested for Covid-19, assuring those who were undocumented that they need not fear any reprisals from immigration authorities. I thought this was a step in the right direction. Media reports today have it that the immigration authorities, […]

God’s peace be with you. “This government may not be the government that you voted for”. Your own words. We got rid of UMNO and BN. You brought them back! And with that, has the old practice of huge chunks of allocations intended to uplift the lives of the most marginalised Malaysians through the DEB […]

Editor’s note : I had said that during the currency of this ongoing MCO, I would not write on politics so as not to distract our focus on the pandemic. Goings-on in the backdoor government left me pissed off. Gloves off. _________________________ Malaysiakini reported on 17th April, 2020 that the Dewan Rakyat will sit for […]

God’s peace be with you. I caught your Covid-19 stimulus package press conference on TV the other day. A good package? I am hopeless with all the figures bandied about, and there are experts aplenty bisecting and dissecting the RM250b package, so I wont even go there. I will trust Dr Jeyakumar Devaraj in his […]

Even as the rakyat rejoiced in the days after GE14, UMNO was given the Kiss of Life
