今天的STAR,安华说民联的成员同意保户马来人的权力!!! 他也说林吉祥,阿旺(回教党)及他本身也同意.HELLO!!!发生什么事啦??? 请问安华,您还好吗?您不是说"Sekarang kita ceritakan hak Orang Malaysia, bukan lagi hak Orang Melayu" 现在又发生了什么事啊?怎么今天他说"Pakatan committed to ensuring Malay rights",这个改变又是为了什么啊?为了全民的利益吗?还是为了...!?!?!?
YB啊!YB!您到底是代表马来西亚的马来西亚人同意吗? 还是您代表您自己的政党? 还是代表您自己呢? 还是代表您...? YB安华说:DAP Adviser Lim Kit Siang, PAS President Datuk Seri Awang Hadi and he, had signed the agreement on September 8 as proof that three parties will uphold Malay rights. YB林吉祥啊!您知道什么叫"Uphold"吗? Oxford字典这么样解释=to support something that is right fair etc and make sure it continues to exist. YB Lim you want it to continue? 我也想请问您,华人有同意让您代表我们吗(to sign agreement)?
YB Tian Chua, 您又有什么话说? 您一直都说及认为马来西亚各簇在YB安华的领导之下会得道公平平等的待遇吗? 为什么您的YB安过去华丽的Hak Orang Malaysia摇身一变,变成Hak Orang Melayu了. 请问您,您支持他吗?
YB Karpal, what has happened to your principle of crossing my corpse before setting up an Islamic Country? Your party adviser had executed an agreement with PAS leader, PAS has never conceal the party's agenda in setting up of an Islamic Country, the execution of the agreement with PAS leader,does it mean that you have given an inch away and PAS is closer? What is your opinion now? What do you have to say YB Karpal? Is your opinion sought prior to the execution of the agreement?
Datuk Hishammudin Said : will be brought into Cabinet meeting, do not agree with the reason of arrest of the reporter. Tan Sri Bernard Dompok :no sufficient reason for arrest. Subramaniam : will bring bad impression. Ong Tee Keat : shall repeal ISA. Ong Ka Chuan : to consult the member of Cabinet and/or BN first. Liow Tiong Lai : Do not agree that the civilian is arrested to be protected. Zaid Ibrahim resigned from his ministrial post after criticising the arrest under ISA.
This shows that the matter was not brought to the Cabinet's meeting. When a matter is not deliberated in the Cabinet meeting, it is upon decision of one person/persons, how can the whole Cabinet be imposed with such duty? Collective Responsibility (CR) in my opinion is only applicable when one matter is duly discussed and deliberated in the Cabinet meeting and the although do not receive unanimous agreement but passed by the Cabinet meeting with decision to proceed. Then those who are members to the Cabinet cannot latter said that he do not agree with the decision in public eventhough he/she was absence during the previous meeting. This is what we called "Collective Responsibilty".
From the reading in papers we realised that so many ministers had voiced their concerned also indicated that the matter was not discussed in the Cabinet. If it is not discussed in the Cabinet, what collective responsibility does it mean? Reason given and granted by Datuk Syed Hamid seems to suggest that he does not know the meaning of CR.
If your own collegue is unaware of the action of you, what CR do you want to imposed on them? Is it fair for other to share the responsibility when the action was taken unilaterally by you? Please rationale it properly.
Arrested to be protected? What type of rationale is this Mr Minister? We have seen in Hong Kong Series that any one to be protected will be informed first. The series also shown that the "Protectee" will always be treated very well, like VVIP. Please ask around Mr Minister, who wants the freedom to be curtailed? Who wants to be taken into custody? Who wants to be placed in a lock up? Who wants to excahnge the safety for a lock up experience? All the answers will be no, no, no, no, no...
I have always says that an action of the government shall be duly considered before it is carry out. Sadly this time we realised many ministers have voice their concerned over the arrest of the reporters. Our Minister for Internal Affairs seems to have no answer to all those question posted to him that caused the answer of being protection measure. My Dear Sir Minister, Syed Hamid, Please discuss with your collegues before action is taken by you especially when you are put to incharge of the Ministry that is so important, the freedom of people is in your hand. One slight action of you will create a lot of problems in the country. I am not saying that you are not capable however more minds together make a different when it is only you, right?
This can be evidenced by having so many Ministers and leaders of the Component Parties, Zaid Ibrahim, Ong Ka Ting, Ong Tee Keat, Ong Ka Chuan, Liow Tiong Lai, Bernard Dompok, Koh Tsu Khoon, Wee Ka Siong etc-etc voicing their concern and disagreement of the use of ISA. Some have called for the repeal of the ISA, some have requested for consultation before action is taken.
This once again prove that, the Minister shall consult with the members of the cabinet and/or discuss with all the leaders of the component party as this is a very drastic action which require careful action set aside that the ISA shall only be used against the armed troop that is a threat to the national security not civilian.
So once again, the Minister Syed Hamid, please use the ISA sparingly and restricted only to the real national threat not on civilian. There are so many laws in the coutry that may be useful against these people.
The current country scenario is dominated by the issue of alleged sodomy of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim(AI). AI is once again being alleged to have sodomised his own PA. Our discussion is of course do not centre aroud the issue of whether the allegation is true or otherwise. That should be the work of the Police and not us the law abiding citizen. What I wish to point out is rather the issue of AI seeking the redress under the Islamic Law, in the Syariah Court.
As everyone is aware, the criminal prosecution of the country is governed by criminal court in the country which is under the secular system as opposed to the Syariah System. The Law in which that govern the criminal prosecution are namely Criminal Procedure Code, Penal Code, etc-etc. These are acts of Parliament which were passed and amended by the Parliament of Malaysia when AI was in the rulling party and after he was out of the rulling party and he shuold recognise them.
I wander how would the action of AI in seeking the redress under the Syariah Law percieved by YAB Lim Guan Eng, YB Lim Kit Siang, YB Karpal Singh and other YBs from DAP. Isn't AI's action seeking redress under the Syariah Court tantamount to his agreement for the country criminal procedure to be governed under the Islamic Syatem? AI is now seeking a redress under a syatem where you have always opposed to, doesn't his action actually alarming to you? In the event he comes into power, what make you think that he would not turn the country legal system into the Islamic System that you have always opposed?
The other more important issue is, would you allow some who is alleged to have committed an criminal act,a right to choose and/or use which law to judge him to his benefit? What if the in the law of evidence, the evidence gathered is in one set of law sufficient and in another it is not sufficient to convict him? can then the alleged criminal chooses the one that is insufficient to have his case tried? What would happen to the country then? Kindly enlightened me and many others (as I have been asked the question by many layman).
All the YBs from DAP, kindly let us know what you have in mind in respect of this issue. Keeping quite isn't an solution to this. You owe a duty to the people of Malaysia, what is you opinion on this particular subject. Do you agree or do you not agree to what AI has done? You oppose to what AI has done so far? Please please please ... you are duty bound to let us know.
接到很多同志们关怀的电话，有些直接了当地说振德啊你可真行啊！有些说你怎麽会跟三人小组有关啊？我可被问得mong cha cha 了。什麽真行？什麽跟三人小组有关？原来是这期的号外我上榜了。我要在这呢感谢SW让小弟这个机会，给我与大家见见面。一个寂寂无名的小卒，在这写写，只因知道自己没什麽料所以写给自己看看打发时间。没想到SW竟然也有上来，谢谢您。但我想在这告诉大家，我可跟三人小组没有任何关系哦！传说中（我不知是不是）总会长的消除异己三人小组我没关系,会长理事会委任的三人调查小组我也不是成员（我没资格吧）。还有什麽三人小组吗？如果有我肯定不是成员因为功夫不到家吗！请不要问我怎样算到家因为我不知道。可能厚黑。。。
Reading a report from the STAR today attracted by one claim by the Second Finance Minister Tan Sri Nor Mohammed Yaakub. Tan Sri claimed that the new structure of the Petrol subsidy will bring about a more efficient economy. I wander how this can be derived at by YB Tan Sri. Whatever it is and the more apprent issue at hand is to settle the aftermath shock by the citizen at large, this can be seen as a large turn out at petrol kioks throughout the country. all the road leading to petrol kioks are jamp up, this is a situation that I have never seen for the past 38 years. Of course as a minister all your petrol will be taken care of by the government, furthermore, Tan Sri enjoy all the privileges that the people at large do not had a chance to even glance at it. Tan Sri please come out with something that will help the people but not word and theory only. Whatever theory that the academician may have is still secondary. What is important and in utmost urgency is in what way and how the people is going to sail through this difficult journey of the day. It is time for the government to think of machanism to tackle the chain effect that will affect the citizen at large. The only voice that I have heard for the past 24 hours is either, heavy responsibility or "matilah kali ini". I really do not what to tell all these people that I met because I myself do are in the satge of the shock aftermath!!! The aftermath effect is the buses are now increasing thier price, the lorry are increasing their tranportation costs, taxi may be the next, hawkers may also increase their food prices, etc-etc.
I for one do not want to discuss the issue from the perspective of religion. After reading the STAR report dated 22/5/2008 and two other reports on STAR dated 23/5/2008, tempted me to voice my comment in this forum. The Report dated 22/5/2008 was saying that the Group has concerned that the attire of the girls had prompted rape cases which I personally feel is a comment that based on imagination of the person. I was in a mixed gender school during my remove class uptill my form 6, I had not heard of rape cases happened in my school, the girls then were wearing the same attire. This omment can be seen as a comment from radical party without taking into interest of the school girls at heart but only thier own. Thier intention of making such statement is questionable and predominantly imposition of once own opinion into others. The right authority that is entrusted with the task if at all the attire is unsuitable will be the teachers and the headmasters of the school and not all these people who are not privy to the school day to day administration. I personally think that the issue of rape, molestation and sex abuse shall be studied in dept and not by pointing fingers to any particular group without thorough study being conducted. It is not only unfair to the girls in the school and at the same time it tantamount to questioning the integrity of the school, headmaster and the teachers who is entrusted with the job of being caretaker of the children. I therefore call and hope that in the future shall there be any kind of concerned the relevant party shall be first met and thorough study and discussion be made before making such a wide and wild statement.
For the past few days much was reported about death threat in the political scene of Malaysia. This is something shall be viewed seriously by all quaters whether you are the supporter of BN or PR. No matter who he is , he is a elected representatives of the people therefore he shall not be threatened with such action no matter what topic he has brought up and touched on(eventhough I personally do not agreed with the issue that was brought by the MP). In the country of freedom of speech that is promoted one shall be respected when his view is aired on the issue. It is left in the hands of the law enforcer to enforce the law in which he has breached if the investigation has been conducted. Let the policeman do thier job and as ordinary citizen of the country shall not take the law into our own hand. In this respect I urged the police in this case to take stern action against the person who has involved in threatening the MP. At the same time, I would like to congratulate the Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz for condemning the death threat received by the Karpal Singh.
Recently， a lot of questions about the qualification of a Member of Parliament is asked. Some wish to clarify on the disqualification due to conviction of a criminal offences whilst some wish to clarify on the disqualification due to self resignation by a Member. I therefore would like to quote the following Articles of the Federal Constitution for our easy reference and I may quote a few examples for easy understanding:-
Article 47. Qualifications for Membership of Parliament
Every citizen resident in the Federal is qualified to be a member- (a) of the Senate, if he is not less than thirty years old; (b) of the House of Representatives, if he is not less than twenty- one years old, unless he is disqualified for being a member by this constitution or by any law made in pursuance of Article 48.
Article 48. Disqualification for membership of Parliament.
(1) Subject to the provisions of this Article, a person is disqualified from being a member of either House of Parliament if -
(a) he is and has been found or declared to be of unsound mind; or (b) he is undischarged bankrupt; or (c) he holds an office of profit; or (d) having been nominated for election to either House of Parliament or to the Legislative Assembly of a State, or having acted as election agent to a person so nominated, ha has failed to lodge any return of election expenses required by law within the time and in the manner so required; or (e) he has been convicted of an offence by a court of law in law in the Federal (or, before Malaysia Day, in the territories comprised in the State of Sabah or Sarawak or in Singapore) and sentenced to imprisonment for a term of not less than one year or to a fine of not less than two thousand ringgit and has not received a free pardon; or (f) he has voluntarily acquired citizenship of, or exercised rights of citizenship in, any country outside the Federation or has made a declaration of allegiance to any country outside the Federation.
Article 48(6) states interalia that a person who resign his membership of the House of Representatives shall, for a period of five years beginning with the date on which his resignation takes effect, be disqualified from being a member of the House of Representatives.
Article 51. Resignation of Members.
A member of either House of Parliament may resign his membership by writing under his hand addressed, if he is a member of the Senate, to the President of the Senate, and if a member of the House of Representatives, to the Speaker of that House.

Minum teh takkanlah perlukan 30 minit!! dalam 30 minit itu siapa nak jaga kaunter, pada masa sekarang? kalau orang datng nak berurusan macam mana? Pejabat kosong semua pergi rehat!! bawalah makanan dan minuman kat tempat kerja makan minumlah kalau tak ada orang? kita kesal perkara-perkara ini berlaku di dalam pejabat mana-mana saja, Pejabat Daerah, Pejabat Majlis Daerah, Pejabat Tanah, Pejabat ...!!! Effikasi kat mana? sikap perihatin kat mana? sikap tanggungjawab kat mana? Baguslah perlaksanaan arahan ini dan saya harap negeri-negeri lain juga dapat meneladani Negeri Sembilan. Perubahan sikap ini amat penting.
Well, a STAR report on 24th April 2008 interalia states that "Much attention was on whether I would wear the Songkong (heargear) and the ceremonial robe after taking the oath of office. Well, I did. I have already explained why we have to change our position before the swearing in of the State Exco members last month. It should not be an issue any more." a quote from the honourable Selangor State Assembly Speaker. It is to my surprise that he has had a 360 degree changes on the issue. It is a matter of principle that one shall hold the same no matter which side you are in. When you are at the opposition you claimed that it is not part of our culture, are you saying that just because you are in the coalition government now, it is now become part of our culture?
As a matter of principle, one shall carry the same voice in one same matter no matter where you are. By you swicthing from one stand to another seems to suggest that you are changing it to suit the action due to poltical environment. Oppose when you are in the opposition and sokong when you are in the government. What is the stand and principle now? We have always say that this country is a multiracial country and as a multiracial country we shall respect each other and to keep the sentive issue away from us especially as a leader of the community does not matter whether you are from the rulling side or the opposition side. We have always say that before you demand for respect from other people you shaould respect other. Isn't it the same that before you want other people to respect your culture we must show our respect to other's first. Wearing of songkok in an official ceremonial especially when such being the culture of the host is a sign of respect to the host. Much said about it being the principle and stand held by YB Teng, it is delighted and happy moment that YB has finally realised this.
I have read a newspaper report on 22th April 2008 stated that PAS has once again reiterated that the PAS agenda of Islamic State is still on and they have not pull out the idea of the Islamic State. What has ahppened now? Only few weeks ago we have read that the Pakatan Rakyat was formed and they talk about welfare state. Only at that moment we thought that the country is going into a new era of which all human will be treated fairly freely and equally, no issue of religion will be brought in the administration of the government. You will be free to religion, will be free to have equal apportunity in economics share, etc-etc irrespective of your race and culture. Now, merely about slightly more than one month PAS has come back with the old story. I was surprise by what was said by the PAS MP for Kuala Selangor Dr Dzulkifly Ahmad "the party do not harp on the issue of Islamic State because it was not part of the Pakatan Rakyat agenda". We must look closely to the intention of PAS. We shall not let them have the opportunity to return with the Islamic State Agenda.
When I read the article about chinese school in certain state in pennisular malaysia enjoy a one Ringgit Malaysia quit rent I am confused. As I know being a Johorean, I have been reading about the chinese school enjoying this previlege for many years. It is only nw that scholl from the other states are begining to enjoy such previlege. Much said and praised about the previlege when it was recently announced but when it was being enjoyed no body seemed to care much about it. We can also see that the MB of Johor for the past few years have with no discrimination provided a yearly allocation to the chinese independant school but no mentioned was made about it by the people at large. This infact can be seen a the government recognition towards the chinese independant school. The MB has for the past few years without fail allocated the allocation in hard cash channel directly into the account of the school. It is not done for the mere purpose of the general election(GE). It is having the interest of the community at heart and not GE.
I hope equal recognition is given to the government of Johor for the continuous support to chinese education. Thank you MB Johor.
