Before I, Jayanath was the Third Force

Note : This post is dedicated to my new friends in Melaka. Hope it helps all to better understand I am the Third Force. ____________________________________________________ In an earlier post on 17th May, 2020, I looked to the freedictionary  for an explanation of the conventional meaning of Third Force ( here is the meaning given : […]

When Ariff proved to be too good for his own good

July 15, 2020

3

Together with many others, I watched the live proceedings of the Dewan Rakyat on 13th July, 2020 to witness the debate of the motion presented by Muhyiddin to have Ariff removed as speaker. I am going to disregard the legal arguments that went back and forth, and go directly to what I felt was the […]

Dear Anwar

This will be short and to the point. On 22nd June, 2020, Free Malaysia Today reported you as saying : “Based on our experience, we cannot trust (him) 100%.” This distrust of Dr M is shared by many right-thinking Malaysians who only desire what is best for the nation. Myself included. He must never be […]

Asalkan Bukan Mahathir

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. 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 to do what I believed to be right. One […]

Muhyiddin cannot dictate the whole order of business of the Dewan Rakyat on 18th May

May 14, 2020

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 circus is in town!

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 […]

Dear Muhyiddin

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 […]

A time for the reluctant politicians come GE15?

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 […]
