Dear Muhyiddin

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 […]

In KK right now and caught you live on TV yesterday evening. Taking in all that you said yesterday, against the backdrop of all that has taken place since last Sunday, and the story making its rounds that Azmin and Gang, to your total exclusion, were working on their dastardly plan, reminds me of the […]

Amanah, DAP, PKR, the end is nigh come the 15th GE unless you turn the ABU votes of days gone by into “We love you” votes

I have deliberately omitted addressing this post to Bersatu, with good reason, which I will make known in the course of this post. Anyone remember Loh Gwo Burne?

I read with interest the report on Free Malaysia Today on things you said in relation to your attendance at the Malay Dignity Congress, and some advice you extended to Malays, generally. In another FMT report, you are reported to have “dismissed criticisms that the Malay Dignity Congress is racist, […]

Some years back, when Bernard Dompok was helming the National Unity Ministry, I attended his talk at the Assumption Church in PJ. During Q&A, I put this to Bernard : I could not find the word Bumiputra in the Federal Constitution. And the Reid Commission Report clearly envisaged that the “special position” of the Malays […]

In the days that followed 9th May, 2018, and the historic victory of the rakyat over a regime that had held on to power by keeping us divided along the lines of race and religion and wholesale cheating at poll after poll,  I held on to hope that I would be able to start to […]
