(Daily Express) - Datuk Seri Najib Razak and political arch-rival Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim are in Jakarta, fueling talk of a meeting that could help the Prime Minister face down possible rivals in parliament and his own party after poor results in Election 2013.
Most of us are more than aware of the current and lamentably ongoing UMNO-instigated rage against the 'ungrateful' Chinese, this despite the general election being over. The results are already known and published in concrete where the UMNO-led coalition, being the majority political bloc in power, is back in federal rule for another 5-year term.
Indulging in child-like behaviour and polemics simply because of the party badge has absolutely no place in any Parliament in a mature democracy. We will wait and see what our Yang Berhormats have to offer come June 24. For that will signal whether there will be order or disorder in the House that will last for the next five years.
THE first meeting of the 13th Parliament on June 24 promises to be exciting, but for all the wrong reasons.
Malaysia must really grow up and not let the divisive and emotive issues long resolved to fester in the present environment.
Malaysians have made their choices. The victors have plenty of work to do and the least of their concern should be to talk about punishing those who did not vote for them. It is the people’s right to vote for anyone or any party. A general election in any democracy is about the right to choose.
Politics in Terengganu is about to get more lively and competitive as the ruling Barisan Nasional prepares to take on the biggest number of opposition backbenchers ever.
Hard as it is to believe, he said the cost of living in Terengganu is quite high and eating out in a restaurant sometimes costs more than in Kuala Lumpur. He also believes that the civil service were not completely with Barisan because they did not have a high regard for the state administration.

(TMI) - A controversial move by Kelab Golf Negara Subang (KGNS) to lease and relocate its gaming machines outside the clubhouse has offered a peek into the billion-ringgit slot machine industry controlled by a clutch of businessmen closely connected to Barisan Nasional (BN).
One of the earliest statement made by Datuk Mary Yap upon her appointment as Deputy Education Minister was “I believe that one of my roles at the ministry will be to ensure the Malaysia Education Blueprint 2013-2025 is well-implemented”
Today, she was reported saying “the shelving of the policy to teach Mathematics and Science in English is only temporary.”

Utusan Malaysia - Timbalan Presiden Pas, Mohamad Sabu bukan sahaja berbohong mengenai fakta kematian ketika dalam tahanan polis malah sengaja mahu 'bermain dengan api' apabila menghasut kaum India membenci kerajaan dan pasukan keselamatan itu.
Malaysia cannot depend on just one source of income -- Petronas. But then even Malaysians (Chinese in particular, but Indians and Malays as well) are moving their money to other countries (and not all is ‘dirty’ money but are legitimate investments). Some are even coming to the UK and billions are being invested here (some of them are my personal friends). How long can this go on before something breaks?
Malaysians are a bit too free with labelling this, that, or the other, as racism. Racism goes deeper than just fighting for your own community. Would you label African American Christian priests or African American Muslim imams who set up community centres for ‘Blacks’ as racists?
The whacking of Najib’s brother is the beginning of an onslaught that we are going to see against Najib. And do not clap and cheer too early. If Najib does fall, and unless someone from Pakatan Rakyat takes over, you may not like the alternative to Najib. You may, not long after that, be reminiscing about the ‘good old days’ when Najib was Prime Minister.
The fruit of a poisonous tree is poisonous. There are no two ways about it. The opposition will sound more credible if it were to announce that it is boycotting the salaries and allowances for all Members of Parliament and State Assemblypersons since it considers the recent general election as illegitimate and the government as equally illegitimate.
Can you see that everything in the end boils down to just one thing -- robbery. Anything taken from the people or denied the people is an act of robbery. You rob the people of this, that or the other. So our struggle must be to oppose these robbers. Anyone who short-changes the people is robbing the people. And I can see robbers on both sides of the political divide. Even in Pakatan Rakyat, just like in Barisan Nasional, there are robbers.
