Abdullah Ahmad Badawi

Dear YAB Perdana Menteri,

I now find myself in a loss for words to describe how disappointed I am in your leadership, or lack thereof.In 1988 you went on record saying ; "If we want to save Malaysia and Umno, Dr Mahathir must be removed. He uses draconian laws such as the Internal Security Act to silence his critics."

Now I find myself thinking "If we want to save Malaysia and Umno, Pak Lah must be removed.He uses draconian laws such as the Internal Security Act to silence his critics"

I would also add these following statements to support the first sentence

-Under him, fuel and neccesities' prices have soared to the point of extreme burden to the rakyat.Even though we are a net oil exporter and our oil is premium grade, sulphur free and Petronas declares six months of bonus per year and is on Fortune 500.

-Under him toll prices have steadily increased and PLUS has been amazingly the top performing GLC for years running with over a billion dollars in revenue.

-The so-called 'room for dialogue' and media crawlspace have thus far only displayed brazen disregard for cultural sensitivity and gender awareness by broadcasting Barisan MPs making fun of women's monthly discharge ('bocor?') asking Christian schools to remove the crosses from their vincinities, waving keris during general assemblies, warning the Chinese and Indians that the roads will be soaked in blood.

Any critisism of the government, is played down.Amazingly, no matter how glaringly wrong the government is, it insists it is always right.The Barisan government is not mostly, not almost always, it is ALWAYS right.Take the recent protests for instance, at least 40,000 urban Malaysians think the elections are unfair.So did media watchdog groups, human rights groups, the US, Opposition parties, the Bar Council, NGOs.But ALL these learned people are wrong.After all, what do a bunch of lawyers know about law, right? Who are they compared to Pak Lah, a degree holder in Islamic Studies from UM who could not enter his preffered course of Economics because he failed Statistics.

In 1987 you said, "Laws such as the Internal Security Act have no place in modern Malaysia. It is a draconian and barbaric law"

Yet you did not see beating up poor, marginalized Indians and accusing them of being terrorist as barbaric.Neither did you want to hear what BERSIH had to say but stuffed everyone into the lockup.You sir, chose to use that mentioned law upon them.Barbaric laws are used sir, by barbarians.Draconian laws sir, are used by tyrants and dictators.

The conclusion I draw from this,sir is that either the truth that you want to hear is not reaching you, or that you do not want to hear the truth, after all.

A disappointed citizen,

Fun Things to do at a Police Controlled Rally

Hi all.....its been ages since I last blogged.I think I netted approximately 120 new grey hairs since then.If I keep this up, lose some weight, gain some height and become gay, I could be Gandalf.

I was typing a longish reply on the HINDRAF rally (which really was what spurred me into typing into my blog again, but decided it was way too long and I would break it up into a few portions.Meanwhile I came up with (which is the best you can do with a frozen brain and a half frozen bank account)

By the way, before anyone sends me hate mail, please note I am a member of BERSIH by default of being in two signatory NGOs and that though I do not agree with a few of the more outlandish requests of HINDRAF,I do understand their plight and support their right to free speech.Besides, anyone who tries and lessen the BN majority sounds like a friend to me.


1.Look up Elizabeth Wong and interrupt her asking her stupid questions about where to get the best rally fashion.

2.Pretend to be confused, smack a police officer in the back of his head and point to the guy next to you.

3.Show up in an entirely inappropraite rally (e.g when BERSIH asked people to wear yellow, show up in pink). And look for your photo striking out in the crowd in the morning papers.

4.Yell Power to the People every ten seconds.

5.Yell Jai Hind every few seconds.

6.Whenever you spot a bald guy, weep uncontrollably, hug him and go "Gandhiji...Gandhiji!"

7.Two words.Stink bomb.

8.When the police starts to spray water at you, bring out a bar of soap and start washing yourself.Or take out a water container and fill it up, shouting "Terima Kasih"

9.Just keep grinning at the police.

10.Wear a cap with bright yellow feathers in and talk into your shirt every few minutes
