Please don't be fooled by the PM recently paying lip service to the Bar Council. He agreed that an independent judiciary was much needed to restore public faith in the system. Soon after that speech, the NST loudly proclaims that the ACA might also soon be given more independence to carry out its duties impartially.
Could it really be that the BN were seriously getting to the roots of their election debacle by actually addressing real issues?
Fook that fer a laugh. Why?
While Badawi (tries to) play renaissance man, his administration revert to the old fear tactics of yore. They get a Clown Prince to declare in no uncertain terms that the privileged position of Bumiputeras can NEVER be questioned and that non-Malays should be grateful fer having been given citizenship in the first place. Typical shit-stirring which the rakyat had rejected in the last GE and yet they persist with inflamming racial sensitivities.
Now, they've gone & closed down popular Tamil-daily Makkal Osai. Permit not renewed. Why? This paper had been brave enough to report & champion the Hindraf & Makkal Sakti movement.
Why should BN fooking care, its just a few hundred Indians left without a livelihood overnite. So what?
On top of that, Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar had the cheek to say that Makkal Osai's permit was not renewed because it had continually brought up racial issues. Fook off! The biggest cuplrit of racial politics is BN (see royal Kelantanese example above).
The bald fook also went on to say that a free press was needed to ensure a system of checks & balances against the executive!!! More fooking lip service while closing down the Tamil paper. See the trend here?
Smacks of OPs Lalang innit? Wonder who's next? The Sun? Sin Chew? . . . Al Jazeera?!?
Do NOT be fooled by BN & its outmoded scare tactics. Self-interest is rarely a good incentive fer good governance. The closing of Makkal Osai is probably just the first step before they start wielding that ace up their sleeve . . . the ISA
This just as they were talking about respecting the rule of law & an independent & empowered judiciary at the Bar Council shindig.
The war against BN & its morally & ideologically bankrupt regime goes on even after the GE. Be strong, me fellow Malaysians, be very strong . . .
