One Helluva "Free Teresa" Day...

Don't forget to sign the petition to "Free Teresa, Abolish ISA!"

"You light up my life" - Candlelight vigil @ Seputeh last night

Plenty to write about but no time to blog.

Have been running around a little like a mad dog - meet local hawkers for breakfast, press conference at Parliament @ 11am on parliamentary caucus to "Free Teresa", filing of Teresa's habeas corpus application at the Jalan Duta Courts @ 12.30pm followed by accompanying Teresa's parents to Bukit Aman for their visit.

That was followed by a press interview on the Budget 2009, a meeting on plans of setting up a special party secretariat and dinner with the family. Then it was off to the candlelight vigil for Teresa Kok at her Kinrara service centre, where I spoke for 15 minutes - asking all BN ordinary members to send in their resignation letters to protest the ISA in disgust - before heading to the Kelana Jaya stadium Malaysia Day celebrations.

No, that wasn't the end, I had to drop in at the tail end of a dinner held by some party supporters before sending home my assistant and reaching home just about midnight. Need to take my shower now and have a good night's rest before starting over again. Thankfully, my trip to Penang tomorrow has been cancelled.

I wonder if its too late to ask that you include these words in your press conference @ 11am:

The first Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tunku Abdul Rahman, defined the purpose of the act as to "be used solely against the communists...My Cabinet colleagues and I gave a solemn promise to Parliament and the nation that the immense powers given to the government under the ISA would never be used to stifle legitimate opposition and silence lawful dissent".

The third Prime Minister, Tun Hussein Onn, stated at the same time that his administration had enforced the act only with a view to curbing communist activity, and not to repress "lawful political opposition and democratic citizen activity".

Reference: Saravanamuttu, Johan. "REPORT ON HUMAN RIGHTS IN MALAYSIA".

If Malaysia Day is to have any value or meaning anymore, it would be the day I see my leaders keep to their promises and principles. Happy Malaysia Day.

Remember the story of Moses
Who went up to Egypt's pharoah
To request for "Let my people go!"
So that no moss with sorrows flow

bexe,

1. You are welcome to read my personal blog anytime of the day. But if the contents of any post aren't to your liking, you can choose to ignore it. I'll keep writing what I feel like writing on my personal blog.

2. The picture is not of my daughter. So I find your remarks highly uncalled for. But even if it is, it's my blog and I'll put up my travel pictures here too.

bexe,

This is Tony's personal blog. He has the freedom and right to post what he wants.

If you don't like the contents, then just don't come to this blog. No one is forcing you.

Criticising without knowing the facts (eg the child in the photo) and using expletives when something is not to your liking is definitely rude and uncalled for. It shows complete disrespect not only for Tony but also disrespect for yourself.
