PKR’s Dep Sec-Gen Dr. Xavier Jeyakumar had white paint splashed across his house by unknown assailants in the dead of Monday night. Dr. Jeyakumar staunchly believes the attack is politically motivated. This infruriating act of cowards will not deter those who fight for what is right!
On a more positive note, Tian Chua writes (with pics too) on how friends and neighbours helped clean the house up, despite the late hour. Hope and warmth amidst darkness.
Suhakam bravely calls for a public inquiry on the Simpang Renggam assault case – in spite of (“I’m no bad boy”) DS Samy Vellu’s assurance that all is ok. Good on them! However:
When contacted, Suhakam commissioner N Siva Subramaniam said a special team from the commission will draw up the terms of references to get to the bottom of the matter. “It will deal specifically with the assault. We are not going to dwell on other issues,” he added.
= not touching the EO? :( Strategic engagement blablabla and credit where it’s due, but this is a bit of a in-denial attitude. But even if they can afford to sidestep the true root of the problem, damn well doesn’t mean we should. Stop draconian laws!!
Also: one warder is arrested for pushing drugs on the inmates. Just one sacrificial scapegoat for what is most likely a widespread abuse? Let’s hope not. Also see thoughts from faithful anti-EO crusader The Malaysian.
Suhakam will also be looking into one case of bonded slavery.
After being long quiet, DS Nazri Aziz bursts back on the scene with characteristic swagger in all the wrong places. On corruption:
“The government has done everything it can think of to fight corruption,” Nazri said.. “To this day, people do not believe the government is going strong in its fight on corruption,” he added.
Everything it can think of? Think some moreLAH!!!!
Also, if the government has exhausted its mental capacities while failing to make a significant dent, as the rakyat rightfully believes, did DS Nazri thus just call the government a stupid failure?
On toll secrets:
“The Cabinet is not worried about declassifying the documents. The concessionaires are the ones making the money, not the Government. There is nothing to hide,” the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department said.
Nothing to hide? How about the fact that the government is standing like a make donno voyeur while the rakyat is being gang-raped by highway companies?!?!
Eee, cannot tahan the government’s “it’s not our fault!” lame-o line. As I’ve preached many times before, that is the single worst thing a leader can say – especially an elected one. Take responsibility you wussies!!
