PARLIAMENT Dewan Rakyat speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia has rejected motions from both BN and Pakatan Rakyat parliamentarians to debate the haze crisis urgently in the lower house.

“The speaker told me that we shouldn’t debate the haze issue in Malaysia because the problem comes from Indonesia,” Teo said during a press conference outside of the Dewan Rakyat today.

DAP’s Kulai MP Teo Nie Ching  and MCA's Ayer Hitam MP Wee Ka Siong both had similar motions rejected by the speaker.

Both the motions were raised under Standing Order 18 (1), which allows for an emergency debate motion if the matter is of urgency and public importance. HERE


NFA because it came from across the Straits? Over the last 4 years observing this piece of poop I  doubt he can understand the magnitude of the stupidity in his statement.  

“There are so many different kinds of stupidity, and cleverness is one of the worst.” With this answer to Teo and Wee, Pandikar thought he was being clever.

People, this Pandikar Amin is not evil. I know something is evil when I smell t. He isn’t evil, just incredibly STUPID! On second thought stupidity is the same as evil if you judge his antics in Parliament. Indeed beauty fades with age, but dumb stupidity is forever. We all have been given a gift at birth; if you have not sorted it out yet, yours is stupidity for sure!

Over the last 4 years observing this piece of poop has proved that stupidity is not a handicap, more a prerequisite if one is to be an effective BN running mongrel. He is fortunate that our laws do not allow that stupidity be punishable by death. If it was, there would be a hell of population drop in the BN coalition.

His audacious stand seems to be the sort of stand a  madman, on a hilltop in a raging thunderstorm, wearing wet copper armour, gesticulating and shouting defiantly, “all gods are useless!” Was the Penang Menara UMNO accident a gentle warning nudge by the gods?

I am reminded of a recent quote by Sachidanand Das:
“The stupid cannot know about his stupidity because he is stupid.”

Over brunch my Wednesday brunch mate Aljunid remarked: “If his brains were a pack of C4 there would not be enough to blow his head off…..maybe just a headache!”

In response Dharma added: “Sometimes a man wants to be stupid if it lets him do a thing his cleverness forbids. One more kopi-o kow kow Kit……on Bernard!”

“Humans beings always do the most intelligent thing…after they’ve tried every stupid alternative and none of them has worked,” said Richard Buckminster Fuller. That about sums up succinctly what the Speaker IS! Intelligence minus purpose equals stupidity. Could that be the collective purpose why BN appointed the Speaker?

But alas, you can't fix stupid, can you?  In politics, stupidity is not a handicap. It's the stupid that make all the trouble in the world, not the wicked. Iraq and Afganistan?

Expect Pandikar to retort: 'What do you think I am, stupid, or something?”

As such the Poop Chute Award is bestowed on him.

When I was a kid, I never saw a puppet show. I never played with puppets or had any interest in them. But of late, puppets are playing a detrimental role in our lives. I am beginning to see the roles of puppets gombie-ing around regardless. I am particularly interested in the Chinese puppets. Would I be unkind to tag these puppets as government drones….programed like the US drones spying on its own people?

The Election Commission was never for a democratic election process. It was and will be for setting up a PUPPET GOVERNMENT. Do bear in mind that the word kow-towing is of Chinese origin and who better to be puppets than the condescending chinamen in politics, judiciary and the STAR media. Haven’t these chinamen realized that the backdoor is always opened (grudgingly)? Are they that thick not to realize that some of them are where they are just to make the number….just to fill an ethic quota….no matter how dismal or pathetic the crumbs offered? When you wait too long at the foot of the table there will be a time when the crumbs too are not there. Najib was right. There was a Chinese tsunami…..the tide turned against the Chinese in government who begged for crumbs from the Chinese populace and were rejected!


 Since 8 May, the people have gathered throughout the country to seek the resignation of the Election Commission. The 7 remain recalcitrant. Are they testing the patience of the Agong?  

Even if 6 refuse to resign I expect the sole chinaman CHRISTOPHER WAN in the EC to step down. You know very well that you have been programmed, been used. Haven’t you realized that you have served your time as a puppet and that to save face, it is time to pull out? You are not a stick, are you? When a puppeteer controls a souless stick person, would you consider your government as your master?

I know it is a tough decision like turning down a blow job ... mid-blowjob. We know how hard that is! But a MAN has got to do what a man has got to do unless he is a puppet. It's called blue balls. You must have had a desire during your tenure to prove to yourself that you were actually in control – that you were not a puppet. Well, Christopher, it is never too late. Straighten up. WALK TALL. No more crouching. STEP DOWN  … a real man and not a counterfeit souless stick man dangling from the decayed edifice.

The Minority (47%) PM had nothing to say……he delegated the KL Police chief who claimed that organisers of the ‘Black 505' rally today have ordered its participants to "provoke" authorities who are stationed at Padang Merbok and the seven gathering points, with the purpose of "creating a riot". HERE

The Majority (51%) PM yesterday said:

Ignore these threats. It is your constitutional right to assemble peacefully. Your lives cannot be dictated by the police, or UMNO or the Prime Minister.

Tomorrow marks our 15th Black 505 rally. It is your right to demand that the Election Commission heads step down for the widespread fraud. The ink was not indelible and that itself is a crime but tomorrow’s rally will leave an indelible imprint in our history. Your children and my children and the future generations to come will remember it.

They will remember that in spite of the odds, the obstacles and the pitfalls along the way, we soldiered on. They will remember that hand in hand we walked through the storm – peace loving Malaysians from all races and backgrounds young and old united in seeking and demanding fairness, justice, and what is rightly due to us.

History has shown that leaders who hold on power through illegitimate means will sooner or later be brought to justice by the power of the people. This is a power drawn from the inalienable rights conferred by the Constitution. They cannot take these rights away from you because they are fundamental to a nation governed by the rule of law. The UMNO-BN government is not your master and cannot determine your future.

By the will of God, the future of this nation lies in your hands. So, when tomorrow comes, let us all be there to make our date with destiny.

Ramachandran Muniandy: Let's all go as participants of the Olympic Day Run, then later change to black T-shirts.

When Mahatma Gandhi started the salt boycott in India, the British closed all the roads to stop the rallies. But the participants went ahead. Hundreds and thousands were arrested. When taken to court, all said that they were guilty.

The judge sentenced them to three months in prison or a fine of 20 rupees. They said they couldn't afford the fine but were willing to go jail. The prisons had no room for them and it would also be a costly affair.

All were eventually acquitted with a warning. That's what people do to fight for their rights!

Way back in 2007 I could not help noticing an unassuming mat salleh in our midst lending support to our various civil society activities. It became inevitable that Frenchman Eric and Malaysian Elaine would invariably be a member of the Special Bunch. Both took time off to enthusiastically campaign for PAS in Kuala Trengganu during its by-election. Eric was assigned back to Paris but both are back in Malaysia to celebrate Eric’s birthday today. Eric was generous in his comments in my blog and it is fortunate that I archived one of his postings. Typical of him he gave us Malaysians a gentle nudge when what we deserve was a good kick in the butt:   

Dear all,

As a foreign investor in this country, it puzzles me to no end that Malaysians would fight all-day-long about their ethnicity, religion or the colour of their belly-button.

Foreign investors are not coming here for cheap labour anymore, Vietnam, and further ashore China, are far cheaper and better (little labour department there). The local market is a laugh, small in number and means, Indonesia or even Thailand are way more enticing if you look at quantity. Don't try to bluff me about common law and judiciary, unwritten rules and unpredictable judiciary rule Malaysia far out compared to Singapore. Don't even speak about >infrastructure, try taking a Malaysian taxi from KLCC to Bukit Bintang wearing a tie and sporting a laptop and you'll understand why foreign investors do not need a second trip to Malaysia. Nope, >none of these count favourably.

The very reason Malaysia (still) ends up with large semi-conductor factories, regional shared services and other multinational service >centres is, precisely, the ethnic diversity. I recently had a tax issue in Indonesia. Some obscure rules I could not even start to fathom blocked the conclusion of the yearly audit. Who sorted it out? Our Malaysian accountant who speaks fluent bahasa flew down and got rid of the fuss in a couple of days. Had it been me, I might be in a Jakarta jail or even dead by now. I am now sourcing materials from China, needless to say I speak and write no Chinese, like most mat salleh, guess who helps me here? A Malaysian. I increasingly require Indian expertise in IT, law and finance. Needless to say, I can never hope to get through the thick accent and neither can my suppliers decipher anything I have to say. Guess who's doing the legwork? A Malaysian. Again. Surprised?

It does not stop there. I can consider myself lucky if my visiting clients from continental Europe can mutter 2 or 3 comprehensible sentences of English. Guess what they tell me once they get back
home? They love the way Malaysians speak English. It being a second language here, Malaysians go the extra mile to make themselves understood to Italian or French speakers who would have come back
from the UK or the US not having understood a thing!

Now rather than capitalise on this, Malaysians prefer to rant about ethnicity day in day out. Good for foreign devils, Malaysians seem bent on keeping us in business. Expensive (and sometimes useless)
expats are still needed in this country because Malaysians would rather have a costly foreigner on top than a plain co-national, due to wrong skin colour, religion or whatever. Thanks to the absurd
(and it pains me to stay polite) local university selection and incredible limitations, expats will be needed forever here. Contrast this with India or China. With their efficient if tough university systems. Chinese and Indian (current or former) nationals are actually taking over many Western companies' executive positions. Meanwhile Malaysian foreign graduates are happy taking up the jobs Westerners won't do at any price (e.g. dreary auditing jobs, low-pay F&B, etc.).

Proposals like DN knights' Satu Sekolah are a gunshot in Malaysia's foot. The day Malaysians shun their diversity under the guise of assimilation, Malaysia will have made sure it become Singapore's official dumping site. For Pete's sake, even the French, who used to champion assimilation all the way, are now teaching Arabic to second-generation French kids, because even they realise the potential loss.

What will make Malaysians feel like a common bangsa again? Shall we petition the British to come back so that Malaysians return to the united days of Hartal and AMCJA-PUTERA's people constitution?
Perhaps the Japanese would want to have a second shot? Or maybe the Dutch or the Portuguese?

If I were to be cynical, and I can tell you a number of my foreign clients are, I should tell you all to go on fighting one another for the crumbs. Please do tell each other "this ethnic community is lazy, that one is a bunch of avid crooks, that other one is just a bunch of miscreants", while foreigners can go on happily signing juicy deals with BN's cronies, hire the best talent for dirt cheap, rape nature (logging, gold mining anyone?), etc. but I won't. Why? I may be a silly idealist, but I still love this country, because I believe you guys can finally overcome your divisions and make this country a model for all to admire. Now, will you prove me right?


Joyeux anniversaire mon cher ami

A few days after Muammar Gaddafi was killed, I met a Libyan student at a bus stop in Bandar Tun Razak and asked him why did the people of Libya hate Gaddafi so much?
From the websites, we know that Gaddafi provided free education until the university level, free healthcare, cheap petrol and other benefits that surely the people of Libya should be very grateful indeed; but they did not. WHAT MORE DO THE LIBYANS WANT?

The student replied to my question in three words, “Gaddafi is bad”. “But how bad?” I asked further. “He has ears everywhere and even mentioning his name in public and if overheard by the secret police, you will be hauled to the lock up, no matter what you have said about him, whether good or bad, you will be hauled up first and questioned much, much later.”

In 1974 and in 2013, the Malays opposed the government, but Najib has created a red herring and claimed that in GE13, it was a Chinese tsunami.

The root cause of the BI was abject poverty and starvation. The rubber smallholders faced ruin when the global price of rubber plummeted. The farmers could not cope with the rising cost of living and rural families had to forage for food in the jungles.

It is Malaysians fighting tyranny.

Abdul Razak warned of tough reprisals and over 40 students and lecturers were detained under the ISA. Among them was Anwar Ibrahim, who was detained for two years.

The wounds which Abdul Razak, Mahathir and Najib opened are still festering.
Our awareness of their crimes and of their despotic rule are more acute.

Their policies have cast long shadows and there will be more BALING INCIDENTS until Najib and the illegitimate BN government step down.

Does HE know that since 2000 there has been 218 deaths in police custody?
Does HE know that there has been 3 deaths in police custody within the last 11 days?
Does HE know why MACC has not been held accountable for the death of Teoh Beng Hock and Sarbaini while they were in their custody?
Does HE know why Mindef agreed to pay Razak Baginda RM500 million for services rendered to the Malaysian Government in the purchase of the Scorpene submarines?
Did HE know that Royal titles are being sold like in 2006 Mohd Ali Baharom (a Malay Army Veteran Association head) had paid a whopping RM250,000 in order to be called a 'Datuk'.
Was HE made aware that according to a report by influential London-based daily The Guardian, a Tax Justice Network's researcher  estimated that US$283 billion (RM892 billion) has been transferred to tax havens from 1970 to 2010 an amount that is three and a half times more than Malaysia's foreign debt of RM257.2 billion in 2011 and is second to Nigeria (US$306 billion or RM964 billion?
Was HE told that the TOL companies have thus far collected more than RM20 billion and the government is still giving them license to plunder and pillage the rakyat?
Is HE made aware that despite 1Malaysia 100 big companies set up, owned and managed by Chinese Malaysians were taken over by government, and later managed by Malays since 1970s, e.g. UTC, UMBC, MISC, Southern Bank as happened to rice millers in Kedah and Chinese owned bus transport companies?
Was  HE informed  that the daughter of the recently-retired chief secretary to the government, Mohd Sidek Hassan, despite any proven track record in the energy field has the “lion’s share” in the newly introduced renewable alternative energy scheme (FiT)?
Was it ever revealed to HIM the wastages generated by:
The BMF scandal………     … RM3.2 billion                                     
The Maminco scandal..……… RM 1.6 billion
The Forex losses scandal…… RM30 billion
The Perwaja steel scandal……RM 2.56 billion
The submarines commission...RM500 million
Bank Islam losses and bailout..RM700 million                                  
The PKFZ scandal....................RM 12 billion                                    
Sime Darby losses....................RM964 million
Terengganu Stadium collapse.. RM292 million
NFC CowGate scandal………  RM250 milion
Bailout of MAS (twice)…………RM7.9 billion
Defence Ministry paying RM1,146 for a RM160 technical pen
Youth and Sports Ministry buying a RM50 carjack for RM1,664
Paying RM 2.57 million to deceased pensioners                             
 MARA Training Centre paying RM25,500 for 150 kg of sugar                                                                                                                                                            Tourism Ministry overpaying almost RM270  million for advertisements
Marine Parks Dept paying RM56,350 for night binoculars valued at RM1,940
TNB spending RM770,000 to supply power to a single house
Was HE told this truth that while the federal debt on paper inches closer to the 55 percent of GDP threshold, the “true debt” as of December 2011 was RM573 billion, or a whopping 67 percent of the GDP which included contingent liabilities such as government guarantees and “off balance sheet” borrowings. In 2009, these hidden debts totalled RM84 billion, which increased to RM117 billion in 2011. Five years ago, our government borrowings stood at RM250 bil but now it has reached RM520 billion. If we include the borrowings of GLCs such as MAS, TNB and others, total borrowings would hit almost RM700 bil.
Was HE informed that Malaysia (USD350 billion) is #5 in the top 10 list of countries with the highest measured cumulative illicit financial outflows between 2000 and 2009?
Was HE made aware that the MACC is a declawed, debarked, toothless and tethered watchdog?
Was HE duly informed the 3 Ministers in the new Cabinet was sworn in without being appointed Senators?
Was HE told why Sharizat and her Family are still not been held accountable for the debacle in NFC?
Was HE told that people who have never registered to vote is on the electoral roll?
Did HE know that foreigners were given Malaysian IC and citizenship to vote in GE13?
Was HE told that among the 92 percent valid addresses, 74 percent of the voters can be recognised, but only 31 percent out of the recognisable voters resided at their listed addresses?
Was HE told that the Fatwa approved indelible ink was diluted to dissolve some haram elements in the ink?
HE was definitely not told that an audit on the electoral roll has revealed a shockingly large number of dubious voter records, a total of about 200,000.

If HE, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong was adequately and timely informed of the above would HE have urged the rakyat to accept the results of GE13 and to support efforts by PM to restore national understanding?

To ensure that in future the Agong is truthfully informed of things of import during his weekly meeting with the Prime Minister, the Prime Minister must bring along as companion the Opposition Leader of Parliament!


Saturday, June 1, 2013


The Prime Minister pussyfooting around the EC issue during the Agong’s Birthday Award ceremony is definitely not the platform to announce this bland move on such an august occasion. We all can see through Najibs’ 
plethora of quick-fixes. His multibillion 1Malaysia lost him the majority votes. His boasts of making Malaysia a moderate and thus a most democratic country today leaves a bad taste in the pallet to the extent that even his uniformed guardians cannot stand candlelight vigils. His new Peaceful Assembly Act is now a joke. The Lingam RCI remains a central feature vociferously used by our standup artistes. His vacillation over calling for GE13 showed his unpreparedness and when he finally announces it, his choices, especially giving seats to two sacked non-UMNO racists, Ibrahim Ali and the kissable Zul Nordin resulted in some millions of his UMNO members not voting for UMNO. His “I love PM” roadshows were spurned by the youths with exception of some TAR University students. His unsinkable submarines do not even appear to sink into oblivion. His pusillanimous silence against Utusan gutter sermons shooed 90% of Chinese voters to the opposition. His involving the Agong to swear in three non-senatorial members of Cabinet has put the King in an embarrassing and unconstitutional cul-de-sac

And today, in front of the King, he announced the formation of a task force to reform the EC. When the kitchen sink overflows and is flooding the kitchen, you do not call the plumber. You switch off the mains. When a fire breaks out in your organization you do not summon a meeting of the Fire & Safety committee. You call the fire department and get the committee to do what they were trained and certified to do.  His, as always are all muddled actions or knee-jerk reactions. Why was he blind to the massive protests of Bersih 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0? We do not needs these in regard to the EC. They have exhibited bigtime incompetence, dishonesty and chicanery. The EC chief and his deputy have hoodwinked us with their indelible incredible ink. Instituting a task force to give the EC guidelines is admitting that the duo has failed. If the head is rotten, you cut off the head, no?

SACK THEM FOR AN INCOMPETENT JOB WELL DONE…… and to avoid a Bersih 4.0 parade to the Palace to ask for their heads on a banana leaf.
