Barisan Nasional Plays Ultimate Dirty

What we are witnessing in Perak today is a total and complete mockery and contempt for our democratic institutions.

We are watching a minor league football game whereby the referee, linesmen, officials, physio and even the ushers in the stadium are breaking all rules and conventions to prevent a fair game from taking place. The referee and officials are not only biased, they are actually taking part in the game itself, as the 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th (or more) players!

All in the mean time, the crowd watched in horror what is happening before their very eyes, that has widespread ramifications for all football games to be held throughout the country.

It is just shocking. Even diplomatic officials whom I've met shook their heads in absolute amazement, what is actually happening in our beloved country. The civil service, the police, the judiciary and even arguably the royalty, are supposed to be institutions which protect the rakyat and fair play. Instead, they have shown their true colours in becoming institutions to protect the interest of Barisan Nasional.

This is exhausting...

Call for snap election and solve it once for all.

The emergency sitting was held under a tree about 100m from the building.

I think this can go into Guinness Record. No?

According to Democracy Index carried out by the Economist, Malaysia is ranked 68th with score of 6.36 (flawed democracy) in year 2008.

It will be interesting to see what happen in 2009 and coming years...

let this be a lesson to all the other PR state governments (kedah, penang, selangor). start hunting down all the BN sleepers and appointees in all levels of the state civil service and state GLCs. replace them all with technocrats, headhunted from the market (with the current global economic recession, there are plenty of talented and experienced msians overseas who will be looking for jobs...get them just like what shanghai is trying to do). build them up to be PR's trusted team of technocrats ready to implement policies and ensure they're are executed well.

it's not going to be easy, but it sure is infinitely much better than sitting around like a sitting duck and let all these planted BN saboteurs screw you at every available opportunity, scuttle all your policies, and come the next elections PR get booted out because the rakyat wouldn't know nor care that PR's non-performance is due to sabotage.

This is the fruits of 50 years in power... they have politically influenced all government machinery especially through politically appointed persons into government machinery....

Taking your football metaphor further, BN removed their side's goal posts as well.

This is a really sad day for Malaysia. BN does not respect the rule of law at all. In this economic uncertainty we want to encourage foreign investments. Who wants to invest in a country that does not respect the rule of law?

Dear Tony,

As a DAP/PR MP-cum-blogger, I think that you should know that:
1. Your blog is preaching to the converted.
2. Only PR supporters will believe what you say.
3. Your blog/views, despite of what you might say, is definitely not from a Neutral point of view.
4. You undeniably blog with a PR/DAP AGENDA

In essence, you are a politician/blogger preaching Pakatan Rakyat/DAP propaganda. I do not expect any neutral remarks from you.
The average person in Perak will only want the state to continue working for the people and stop politicking, regardless if its a PR or BN govt. Any govt. that is quarrelling and/or politicking is a useless govt. That goes for the PR too.

And that is a NEUTRAL statement.

Ummm... dear Anon 5.41pm

Did I say my blog was a "neutral" point of view? It's "my view".

What's a neutral point of view? That both the hero and the villain should stop quarelling? That the hero should mind his own business, and let the villain do his stuff?

And yawn... I'm preaching to the converted, why are you reading my blog? Go away!

Tony ;-)

Dear Tony,

Its unbelievabe that a very respected and learned royalty allowed this to happen under his royal nose. Much water has passed since YB Nizar got the royal boot, but the sentiments of the rakyat surely must have been felt by all and sundry in the palace, yet nothing comes out of it. The detractors (you know who I mean) got away with it and we can only sigh and whine about it.

Reading through these comments, I do not why people are so disappointed, upset and pessimistic.

There is not only a silver lining behind the gloom, but very possibly a great day of sunshine when the world sees BN's desperate struggle for illigitimate power over Perak.

Dear Anon 5.41pm

Call for state election. That's a NEUTRAL statement.

Fair ?

Tony,

Trust me, by paying dirty games, Barisan Najis will have to pay the price by losing even more in GE13. The Rakyat are no longer stupid these days.

Yesterday was 3/3/09 and the scenario unfolding in Perak was akin to Orwellian elements in "1984":

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineteen_Eighty-Four

"Nineteen Eighty-Four is a classic dystopian novel by English author George Orwell. Published in 1949, it is set in the eponymous year and focuses on a repressive, totalitarian regime."

"The novel has become famous for its portrayal of pervasive government surveillance and control, and government's increasing encroachment on the rights of the individual. Since its publication, many of its terms and concepts, such as "Big Brother," "doublethink" and "Newspeak" have entered the popular vernacular. The word "Orwellian" itself has come to refer to anything reminiscent of the book's fictional regime."

Perak is now a police state:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Police_state

"The term police state describes a state in which the government exercises rigid and repressive controls over the social, economic and political life of the population. A police state typically exhibits elements of totalitarianism and social control, and there is usually little or no distinction between the law and the exercise of political power by the executive."

"Liberal democracy, which emphasizes the rule of law, focuses on the police state's not being subject to law. Robert von Mohl, who first introduced the rule of law to German jurisprudence, contrasted the Rechtsstaat ("legal" or "constitutional" state) with the aristocratic Polizeistaat ("police state")."

A little twit told me that Perak is a pawn in the great political game for power between PR,BN and.....DZ

The Chinese have a saying that with power comes wealth and not vice versa.

Now we know why power is so desirable and addictive.

Tony,

Don't let the Perak crisis overshadow the need to LOWER THE PETROL PRICE WITH THE CHEAPER OIL PRICE NOW.

I said it before and I will say it again.

UMNO-BN will call in the army before they allow state election. THEY JUST DON'T GET IT.

They have lost. Unless they postphone election for years i.e., beyond 2013 as required, they have already lost. Nothing they can do will make up for what has happened AND its very limited what they can actually do.

The prodigal childrens of founder of the Alliance just don't get it.

To neutral statement maker,

If you are really neutral, then I believe you should have post the similar comments at the blogs of BN leader who commented on this issue such KJ's.

Those State Secretary are like landlords. If they did it to PR, they will also or has done to non-UMNO parties like MCA, Gerakan and MIC. They have been telling them to kerk off.
