A touching portrait of V. Ganabathirau, from Tony Pua, DAP economic advisor and head of DAP Damansara branch.

Ganabathi will not have the chance to see his 8-month old baby girl grow up, thanks to Abdullah Badawi and UMNO.

Please forward this around as you won’t get to read this in any of our mainstream newspapers. Pah…

Dua hari selepas Udayakumar, penasihat undang-undang HINDRAF telah menjelaskan kepada Utusan Malaysia bahawa HINDRAF bukan pertubuhan anti-Melayu, tetapi musuh sebenarnya ialah UMNO, kini beliau bersama 4 rakan-rakannya ditahan di bawah Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negara (ISA).

Bilakah musuh UMNO boleh menjadi musuh negara?

Cis. Bebal betul Pak Lah ni. Pandai bazir wang, pandai tidur. Pandai buat tak tau. ‘Zero’ kemahiran mentadbir negara.

Jangan biar negara kita sampai ke tahap parah seperti Zimbabwe dan Myanmar.
Lawan tetap lawan.
Lawan demi maruah.
Lawan sampai menang.

(Kemaskini) Sesiapa yang berada di Pulau Pinang, sila datang ke “Malam untuk Keadilan” yang memberi sokongan kepada semua orang yang ditahan. Program ini dianjur oleh pihak Suaram-Pulau Pinang dan rakan-rakan NGO di utara.

A new species was discovered in Malaysia, a country close to the equator, in November 2003. Political scientists have called it ‘Hippocretin‘ and is said to be a cross-breed between a hypocrite and a cretin. It is believed this new being which resembles a chicken, is easily spotted with its Big Ears, has an IQ of ‘Ling-ling’ and the ability to fall asleep anytime, thus needing constant guidance and prodding from his brood to move around. It loves Nasi Kandar but definitely not floods. It is known to be afraid of crowds.pmstupid2.jpgBut seriously.This is a little rich, coming from someone who flew off to Venezeula, then a week’s holiday in Perth (and caught opening a Nasi Kandar shop of his family’s, of all things!), when the country faced the worst floods ever in its history.Is buying a RM 200 million personal jet a form of loving your country, when fuel subsidies are cut and inflation spirals?Is enriching your family and friends with titles, contracts and money a patriotic act? Do you know the difference between filial acts and patriotism.Is silencing people who have legitimate grouses and demonstrate peacefully with chemical-laced water, teargas, batons, mass arrests, media machinery, called loving your people?IS ARRESTING UDAYAKUMAR, MANO etc. WITHOUT TRIAL under the ISA, taking away their right to defend themselves in an open court, a fair and just action?No, Hippocretin.It’s a cowardly act.

It happened this morning on the road near Parliament.

The little Tiara was later found torched, which Tian Chua said, was the work of the police. (updated: See pics after ‘more’)

(Updated) Bravo to the Opposition MPs who refused to be present during the ramming through of the Constitutional amendment (first reading only today!) which extends the age of retirement of the Elections Commission from 65 to 66 years of age.

Expect General Elections before this chap’s 67th birthday.

See the memorandum which rattled the embattled Elections Commission chief and the Prime Minister.

BERSIH Memorandum to the
Parliament of Malaysia and All Its Members
11 December 2007

SAY NO TO THE “SAVE RASHID”
AMENDMENT OF THE CONSTITUTION

The Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (BERSIH) urges the Parliament of Malaysia, which consists of His Majesty the Yang diPertuan Agong, Dewan Rakyat and Dewan Negara to reject the proposed bill to amend Article 114 of the Federal Constitution, which will effect in Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman’s extension as the Election Commission (EC) Chairperson up to one-and-a-half years.

BERSIH stresses that Tan Sri Abdul Rashid, whose service is continuously marred with recurring electoral frauds and manipulations, is not fit for the job and must go immediately. All parliamentarians must therefore vote against this Constitutional Amendment Bill so obviously being rushed through to keep him the job is an insult to both the Constitution and Parliament.

However, after sitting in the Court lockups for more than three hours, an instruction arrived to return him back to the police headquarters. He was not charged in court and there is no information to date, why he was separated from the rest of the detainees earlier.

BERSIH delegates had their particulars taken down by the police and were released by four pm today. The names of the eight persons released are:
