I don't read books written by communists. It's a waste of my time.

A communist! Oh gosh, what would Dr Tim Jenkinson say!

BERSIH? said...

No pitch for BERSIH July 19? I thought DAP is supporting the march?

For someone who wrote a book "Tiger that lost its roar", i am surprised to see no stand or posting on 30% quota for women. or have we forgotten our lessons from history

There should not be any stand on the 30% quota for women, it is another mistake. The women should be able to get to any position they want based on merit and should never be based on gender

Although I've only finished Chapter 3, the stats and information are stunningly surprising. Thank you for taking the time to research and share such in-depth information with Malaysian citizens. Keep up the great work Tony.
