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

May 17, 2020

1

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Remembering this fallen anak bangsa Malaysia

Bernard Khoo aka Zorro Unmasked. 6 years ago, on this day, Zorro left us. I first encountered Zorro at the Press Club in early 2007. We hit it off instantly. What happens, though, when you bring together two individuals who have strong opinions which may often differ, but will strongly put forth their case? Sparks […]

Making the most of this “stay home” situation

“This blog, then, is about civil society reclaiming its power to determine who are the law-makers in Parliament today who are worthy of the trust reposed in them by the people and if, sadly, we discover there are none presently, to make an informed decision of who we will next install in the people’s parliament”.  […]

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 […]

Jayanath Appudurai 9th March 2020 ____________________________________________________________ The drama that unfolded on 23rd February and beyond are but symptoms of an insidious virus in our society. Its the fear, perceived or imagined, of the “Other” that needs to be treated. Most of us have been socialised to view the Other with suspicion, prejudice often resulting in […]

The one difference that PH brought with their governance, as seen in the last week

March 1, 2020

0

I am not saying there has been only one difference that PH brought in their 21 months in governance. And I have so much more to say about this unholy denial of the will of the rakyat expressed through the ballot box on 9th May, 2018. More of that later. The media reporting over the […]

Dr M is not the man to lead a unity government

February 28, 2020

“Politics, politicians, and political parties prioritise politics too much to the point they forget the country is facing economic and health problems that threaten the country. I believe, right or wrong, politics and political parties must be set aside for now” – Dr M, on why he wants to lead a unity government. “…this option […]

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 […]
