No need to bring up BN’s past mistakes, says Muhyiddin – by Melissa Chi – March 04, 2012

BN has brought development to the country despite past missteps, said Muhyiddin. — File pic
KUALA LUMPUR, March 4 — Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin said although the prime minister admitted Barisan Nasional’s (BN) mistakes, “there is no need to list out our weaknesses; that is in the past”.

“What is more important is in front, in the next 10, 20 years and as the prime minister said, we are ready to improve ourselves and improve on what we have already accomplished such as the national transformation programmes, which includes the economy, government, politics, rural issues and new measures taken by the prime minister and the government, which have an effective impact.

“The people have accepted the concept of 1 Malaysia and there is a new feeling of confidence in Barisan Nasional among the people,” Muhyiddin told reporters after the launch of the World Kidney Day here at Dataran Merdeka.

Datuk Seri Najib Razak apologised yesterday for BN’s past mistakes, which led to the loss of its two-thirds parliamentary majority and four states in 2008, recognising the groundswell against the ruling coalition remains ahead of a general election that must be held by next year.

“I believe that we should not be arrogant. In a parliamentary democracy, we have to subject ourselves to the power of the people. We must have made mistakes for the people to have rejected us,” Najib was quoted as saying in Kedah yesterday by Bernama Online.

“We apologise for our past mistakes. The victors apologise, as do the losers.”

The prime minister said the BN would rectify the mistakes and make up by serving the people as best as it could.

The voters’ rejection of the BN, like in Kedah, was in a way due to the mistakes made by the coalition, Najib said during a day-long visit to the state.

Today, his deputy said that the prime minister’s apology was an act of humility.

“We, as humans, of course have weaknesses; nobody is perfect and the Barisan Nasional government is aware of our weaknesses and may have made some mistakes.

“However, in the past 54 years, nobody can deny the fact that, even with our weaknesses, we have succeeded with major developments in economy, social, culture, education, international relations and many more,” Muhyiddin said.

The Malaysian Insider understands that the latest Umno surveys show that there could be a repeat of the Election 2008 results but with Pakatan Rakyat (PR) getting at least 87 federal seats, five more than in 2008.

Among the issues blighting BN’s efforts to garner more support include a civil service pay revamp that has gone awry, the National Feedlot Centre (NFC) scandal involving a minister’s family, and the Lynas Corp rare earth refinery operations which has seen growing opposition to its plan to keep radioactive waste in the country.

BN won 140 seats in the 222-seat Dewan Rakyat with the remainder going to PR but a series of defections has seen the opposition dropping to 76 seats. It also lost Perak to BN in 2009 after three PR lawmakers quit to be independents supporting the federal coalition.

PR now holds Kelantan, Kedah, Penang and Selangor but a brewing leadership crisis in Kedah could tilt the rice-bowl state back to BN in the next election, which must be called before May next year.

Speculation has been rife that the 13th national polls will be called soon.

But Najib has yet to indicate when he will dissolve Parliament, which will start its 2012 sitting next week.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

If BN wants to correct 3 very glaring mistakes first, all the smaller mistakes might even be forgotten. How about granting (since BN has the mandate) :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.

Otherwise BN has no value to near 40% of the population (or even more by item 2, many Malays might want to choose a different religion or have no religion at all, a 20-30% figure means BN would be wiped out by sheer neglect to affirm UNHCR Article 18 . . . ) at all. Not-so-religious or non-Muslim Malay, Orang Asli, Indians, Chinese, will vote for BN only if the above 3 items are allowed.

UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS Article 18.

  • Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

Forgive and forget, the Umno Way — Gomen Man – March 04, 2012

MARCH 4 — This is the Umno way: Forget all debts and don’t bring up mistakes. And this enlightening statement is coming from Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, the then-agriculture minister who approved the now-infamous National Feedlot Centre project.

This is a most self-serving and irresponsible statement, not to mention dangerous.

Is this what we are supposed to teach our children? Just say sorry and all will be forgiven. There is no need to show remorse, make restitution or pay a price for breaking the law.

How about the common Malaysian? Just say sorry and there will be no need to be punished for cheating, theft, robbery, murder, criminal breach of trust, etc.

Muhyiddin’s statement is very much in keeping with the ridiculous stuff that we keep having to put up with. Don’t bring up my past transgressions even though I have not owned up to it because it is in the past.

OK, let’s for a minute accept his ridiculous proposition. Let’s not bring up the RM250 million fiasco called the NFC or implicate Shahrizat Jalil’s family in it.

Stop talking about the RM850 million court judgment that, because of the government’s intervention, Tajuddin Ramli does not have to pay to Danaharta.

Don’t make fun of the government transformation programme and ETP just because the figures used by Pemandu are intellectually dishonest.

Stop going on a witch hunt for the people behind the RM2.5 billion losses just suffered by MAS and the cost escalation to nearly RM5 billion for a low cost terminal in KLIA.

Don’t bring up the RM500 million commission paid to certain individuals for the Scorpene submarine deal.

And since we are in such a forgiving mood, we should also include the rakyat and not hold anyone accountable for any transgression. As long as they give a blanket apology, everything is OK.

This, in essence, is what Muhyiddin Yassin said.

* Gomen Man reads The Malaysian Insider.

Gomen??? Is that you Gomes? Weirdos . . . How about Forgo and Forgone, the UMNO Way? More NLP titles eh? Sick.

If DPM Muddy would grant :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.

;and stop being a cryptoracist (if DPM actually is at all . . . by all accounts and non-MSM opinions he would appear so . . . ), allow ALL races to join UMNO, I’d vote for UMNO without issue, the corruption and other issues would determine the pecking order in a new UMNO that has the 3 items in it’s constitution and the new leaders (DPM Muddy and PM Najib, are you up to this?) will be those who granted the above 3 items.

Vague apology doesn’t wipe slate clean, Kit Siang tells Najib – by Melissa Chi – March 04, 2012

Lim asked if Najib’s apology meant he was now shouldering the mistakes of previous prime ministers. — File pic
KUALA LUMPUR, March 4 — DAP leader Lim Kit Siang challenged Datuk Seri Najib Razak today to list his Barisan Nasional (BN) government’s mistakes to prove that his apology was not a “blank cheque” for the transgressions of previous administrations.

“Is Najib apologising for [Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s] 22-year premiership [that] was dogged by a catalogue of financial scandals costing an estimated loss of RM100 billion to the country?

“Up to now, Malaysians are still paying for these financial scandals, as in the third and latest RM840 million bailout of former Malaysia Airlines (MAS) chairman Tajudin Ramli with his out-of-court settlement with Danaharta and GLCs (government-linked companies),” the veteran opposition lawmaker said in a statement.

Lim said the prime minister should be given an opportunity to enumerate the past BN mistakes for which he is extending an apology and promise not to repeat them, so that Malaysians can decide whether Najib’s admission was sincere or otherwise.

The Ipoh Timor MP said Najib’s apology should be accepted if it is genuine, but added that it could be “just election gimmickry”.

Najib, who is chairman of the 13-member ruling coalition, apologised yesterday for BN’s past mistakes that caused it to lose its customary two-thirds majority in Parliament and four states in 2008.

The apology appeared to be recognition of the groundswell against the ruling coalition ahead of a general election that must be held by next year.

“I believe that we should not be arrogant. In a parliamentary democracy, we have to subject ourselves to the power of the people. We must have made mistakes for the people to have rejected us.

“We apologise for our past mistakes. The victors apologise, as do the losers,” he said at a meet-the-people session at the Kuala Ketil public field, Baling, according to a Bernama Online report.

The prime minister said the BN would rectify the mistakes and make up by serving the people as best as it can.

The voters’ rejection of the BN, like in Kedah, was in a way due to the mistakes made by the coalition, Najib said during a day-long visit to the state.

Earlier today, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said although the prime minister admitted that BN made mistakes, “there is no need to list out our weaknesses; that is in the past”.

“What is more important is in front, in the next 10, 20 years and as the prime minister said, we are ready to improve ourselves and improve on what we have already accomplished such as the national transformation programmes, which includes the economy, government, politics, rural issues and new measures taken by the prime minister and the government, which have an effective impact,” Najib’s deputy told reporters after the launch of the World Kidney Day at Dataran Merdeka.

Today, Lim said one should ask whether Najib has issued a “blank cheque” apology, “signifying nothing as to enable all the past BN mistakes of abuses of power, corruption and lack of accountability to be repeated in even worse magnitude”.

“In the past three decades, the independence, impartiality, integrity and professionalism of major national institutions, whether civil service, judiciary, police, elections commission or anti-corruption agency, were seriously compromised by executive interference and usurpation,” he said.

Lim pointed out the “abysmal failure” in the fight against corruption under the 1 Malaysia Government Transformation Programme (GTP), noting the score for the corruption perception index (CPI) has plunged to a lowest-ever 4.3 and the worst ranking so far of No. 60 in the 2011 Transparency International CPI.

The DAP advisor asked if Najib was apologising for Malaysia becoming “increasingly corrupt” under the administration of the fourth and fifth prime ministers, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Tun Abdullah Badawi respectively.

He also demanded if Najib will apologise for the “illegal power grab” in Perak, which saw the elected Pakatan Rakyat (PR) state government headed by Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin [[[ *** Psst, legalize Psychedelic Organics and call yourself Jah-luddin and who knows PM-ship from sheer coolness could result . . . Ambiga was at fault there . . . *** ]]] being ousted from office after several state lawmakers jumped ship 11 months into its mandate.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Instead of demanding more apologies (much like LGE did in tat failure of a DAP-MCA Debate), LKS needs to apologise for DAP’s FAILURE to keep it’s 12th GE promises as follows :

a) Local Council Elections at Quorum of 66.6% in each district.
b) Asset declarations of **MPs** NOT EXCOs. Changing the fine print is DISHONESTY. Not keeping word means DAP and LKS is UNTRUSTWORTHY. And the Rakyat won’t believe any excuses about not knowing what DAP is doing, LKS runs DAP like a family business, only the stupidest or authoritarian inclined politicians would tolerate that sort of b.s..
c) Various abuse of power cases still pending and uncompensated thus far.
d) Teo Beng Hock’s cynical death, which I believe if an audit of LKS’s sick mind is done will reveal the worst fears about, that DAP SENT Teo Beng Hock to his death.
e) For ‘dropping’ parachute minister on Penang without ANY vote of any sort. NEPOTISM at it’s worst is why we have LGE as Chief Minister today. In a truly democratic political party (i.e. at 66.6% quorums or a one-man one-vote for all Penangites system (like USA’s presidential elections), no way would LGE be Chief Minister.

DAP’s Boo Is All Talk – Monday, 05 March 2012 13:43 – Tee Siew Kiong

DAP Johor Chairman Boo Cheng Hao only knows how to play political tricks and talk nonsense, and has underestimated the wisdom of the voters by continuing to use the same tricks in an attempt to fool the voters.

This statement is made in reaction to Boo’s motion to the state’s legislative assembly seating to request for a debate on toll charges during the assembly which begins on March 15.

MCA has always maintained good relationships with Chinese societies and associations.

Regardless of whether or not we are a part of the state government, we start to work to figure out this problem and MCA President Dr Chua Soi Lek has also met with ministers and the federal government to discuss this issue.

Boo has no experience in government administration work, and I sympathize and feel sorry for him as he is facing internal conflicts, so he is unable to carry out his responsibilities as a state assemblyman during the meetings of the state’s legislative assembly.

If he was indeed worried about toll charges, then he should have personally asked Penang Chief Minister and DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng to abolish the Sungai Nyior Toll and Penang Bridge tolls as these promises were made by DAP to the people should they take over the state government.

If DAP is unable to solve their own state’s toll problems, then they should not continue to pay lip service to the public by making all kinds of promises in order to mislead the people.

DAP never make their stand clear on PAS’s goal of establishing an Islamic theocratic state. MCA on the other hand, has always advocated people-oriented policies, and works hard to convey the views of the Chinese community to the government and to implement policies efficiently as a gift to the people based on their feedback to us.

TEE SIEW KIONG is MCA National Organising Secretary

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

You know what BN? Between the Tolls and Ending Apartheid, doubtless anyone can see that ending apartheid is more important. So guess why BN is unvotable? This toll thing is a very low priority issue compared to apartheid.

Many thanks to MCA for keeping tabs on what DAP lied. But MCA, do you know that by remaining in BN you are tacitly accepting APARTHEID for the minorities and thus are as unvotable as DAP? How about asking PM Najib to grant :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.

;and make things easy for the voters? Even PAS has become an international standard party without race specific criteria, what does that make UMNO and by extension MCA who still cannot make clear on the above 3 items? The mandate is with BN, why does BN not grant the above 3 items? How can anyone vote for BN then? We don’t like Pakatan, but BN’s non-use of the mandate to grant the above 3 items makes BN unvotable. Grant the abiove 3 items and allow us to not vote for Pakatan nd Pakatan’s lies! Until then BN is still finished.

‘Don’t involve sultans in political games’ – Rulers are the protectors of the Constitution and should be left alone, says Tengku Azlan – by Terence Fernandez and Azril Annuar – March 05, 2012 – 17:32

TENGKU AZLAN: ‘Although I’m the brother of the Sultan of Pahang, when I contest, I’m just another wakil rakyat’ — Pic: Arif Kartono

In the final part of our interview with Tan Sri Tengku Azlan Sultan Abu Bakar, he reminds both politicians and the Royal Houses that there is a clear demarcation of roles.

Terence Fernandez and Azril Annuar ask the questions to the straight-talking Jerantut MP.

MM: What is wrong with our country apart from the politics? We’re sure we rakyat have to blame ourselves …

TA: Too much politics! That’s why I’m very frustrated. Everything is politics. You can’t run a country by just politicking. It’s wrong.

Once you are a government, you are a government of the people. There’s no party there. Our PM is the PM for everyone — even the Opposition, when they see the PM they have to give him due respect because he’s the PM of the country. It doesn’t matter what your political belief is. When I go to Penang, Lim Guan Eng is the chief minister.

He is the government there. I am there as opposition. That is not the opposition government, that’s the people’s government. So we must respect the choice of the Penang people.

With you representing the royal house of Pahang, the last time the royal houses were brought into the fray of politics pre-2008 was when we headed for independence. Since the last elections, there has been an unprecedented involvement of the royal houses, especially in Selangor and Perak.

I think the rulers know their function. The rulers are the protectors of the Constitution. They should be above politics. Obviously politicians should not use the royal household for their political schemes.

I think they should be left alone. The ruler should be a unifiying figure. Through the Constitution all races are protected. The rulers are not rulers for Malays only, they rule everyone.

I hope all rulers will be like (his older brother) Tuanku Pahang who goes to the ground especially when the rakyat is facing an emergency. If all rulers can play this role, it’s very good for the country because the rakyat will see they have a last resort.

If politicians cannot solve their problems, they have their sultans. I can speak about only Pahang because I know what my brother has done. He’s the people’s ruler. He takes care of everyone, not just the Malays and Tuanku Sultan Ahmad Shah is an approachable person.

What about some politicians who alienate the royal household by disrespecting protocol?

I cannot say it’s the majority. There are bound to be a few who think otherwise or are a bit radical in their thinking or outlook on the monarchy. Whether we like it or not, we need the monarchy to unite the races.

But there are perceptions that some rulers are aligned to a certain political power. Shouldn’t they be neutral?

Take Kelantan, PAS is the government, the ruler has to support the government of the people. In Pahang, BN is the government, Tuanku Pahang has to support the government of the day. If people chose otherwise, he’ll support that.

Despite your intention not to re-contest, surely Umno is trying to persuade you to stand in Jerantut. Perhaps, certain aspects of your constituency are neglected by the government because they say Jerantut is a fixed deposit because who is going to vote against the sultan’s brother because the rural folk revere the sultan?

If people think that way, that means they haven’t learned anything. You must not forget, although I’m the brother of the Sultan of Pahang, when I contest, I’m just another wakil rakyat.

But these are rural areas. Urban areas are different, if they put you in Lembah Pantai, no disrespect, but you may lose. But in your hometown, rural folk, 90 per cent Malays, definitely they’ll vote for a member of the royal house. A vote against Tengku Azlan is a vote against the sultan.

I think the people in Jerantut are wise enough to know. I don’t want them to vote me because I’m the sultan’s brother, I want them to vote me for what I’ve done. I told them, if you want me I’m around, if not, I’m out. I think the people of Jerantut should look at that. Vote for a wakil rakyat who performs.

Even if I don’t contest there, if Umno … you see we have 19,000 or 20,000 Umno members in Jerantut. If every Umno member votes for a BN candidate, there’s no way Jerantut will lose to the Opposition.

But the problem is the disloyal Umno members, they are voting against BN today and it’s happening all over the country. Umno may have enough members to get their candidates to win any particular constituency. But it’s the disloyal opportunists who don’t vote for Umno when they don’t get something.

What about the loyalists who are frustrated with where Umno is heading? They vote against Umno to teach it a lesson. So Umno might go back to what it once was?

Well, if they’re not happy with the party, definitely they’re voting against Umno. If I’m dissatisfied, I’ll vote against Umno. So what? After all, Umno is just a party. But then, if you maintain quality in Umno, why would anybody want to vote for someone else?

But today, is Umno a quality party? Does Umno consist of quality leaders or members? If you look at DAP, they don’t have many members but people look at DAP as a quality party. A very well-organised party, that’s why they vote DAP, especially the Chinese.

Look at the MIC under Tan Sri V. Manickavasagam and Tun V.T. Sambanthan. MIC was solid because of the leaders. It was strong. Same with Tun Tan Siew Sin. He took care of our money as finance minister. Not just the Chinese respected him, even the Malays.

The problem is we’re not getting that kind of leaders anymore, I don’t know why.

Because Umno kills off its own leaders. They see anyone with potential, willingness to serve and (with) ambition, they kill them off.

I agree! They see someone with potential, they kill them right from the start. In the long run, Umno will lose. In life, you must have principles.

Principle also means being accountable and taking responsibility. What do you say about those who are guilty by association albeit through no fault of theirs?

I think I know who you are talking about. She made some mistakes in the sense that she responded on the wrong platform. So what she should have done is withdraw herself, temporarily and come back. One step backward to win two, three steps in the future.

And don’t say too much. In politics, politicians here like to talk when they see the microphone. There are certain things about good politics. That’s the beauty of Tun Mahathir. Sometimes he doesn’t say much or anything but he does a lot of thinking. So talk less, think more.

When you think more, you tend to get the real input in the sense of how to go about a certain issue and are able to articulate better, because your mouth is very dangerous and can turn against you because you’re talking without thinking. Emotions are the same. So always think before you want to react to a certain issue.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

If Tengku is to be an ordinary ‘wakil rakyat’, Tengku should please let the rulers know that Malaysia is an embarrassment because of the Constitution. As internationally and by UN considerations, even in proper application of Islam, with many of the laws and constitutional articles of Malaysia are outdated (even poorly written) and amount to a display of human rights abuse. If the citizens do not act,the citizens will continue to suffer, so when citizens act it is not out of inclination to disruptiveness but a seeking of justice.

And seeing what has occurred in the Arab Spring, shouldn’t the rulers stop (indirectly by inaction many untenable aspects of Malaysian life continue unaddressed) protecting the severely outdated and unfair portions of the constitution, and study which parts of the constitution are failures that need changing then correct the inapplicable portions of law and constitution instead? This failure by extension alludes much that I will not mention here that would doubtless fall foul on probably much coddled ears and likely even more insular minds.

Incidentally, as a defacto ruler by relation, Tengku best prevents conflict of interest between the state itself and the royal institution by considering the following. Politics is for certain beneath royalty, though seemingly the current neglect of the Royal institution’s duties to the exclusion of human rights and fallacies within constitution and law makes the already if not great distance between what is internationally applicable and not, causes much loss of trust and closeness between the 2. The people have moved on, and to refuse to engage in reasoned and fair minded reviews will only result the loss of what makes for rulers’ expected exceptionalism, what does not end up as a form of being out of touch in any case. Being unable to understand the need of :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.

;does not bode well for Malaysia and could indicate a slide into, or stand of, a form of absolutism that will not help Malaysia or the reputation of the Court Institution nor foster respect among the people. These are no political games but a sincere aspiration for equality and Malaysia’s standing as an equality minded nation with considerate monarchs that would not want any portion of the populace to be disenfranchised in any manner as per the prevention of the Sin of Asabiya and of course to ensure the viability and fairness of the Rulers.

After all, Umno is just a party?’ Not just but more so when they brandish the royal titles bestowed, hiding behind the same like a bogeyman who’s hand is stayed only by their corrupted manipulations and immense pathos. By their power to ensure the above 3 items, the Rulers are tied to the fate of the nation (unless developments in the world are to be ignored or the rulers remove aspects of the constitution for responsibility to determine the state of equality of the people), by proxy. The nation must not look upon the Rulers as a force of oppression even in the endorsement and granting such simple and fair items above.

This condemnation of evidently racist UMNO though, is a positive development and could possibly be taken to indicate a (unfortunately glacial) step in the right direction.  The people can even if need be, indeed move ahead of the Rulers and the failed constitution (ask around in any international groupings the constitution is institutionalized Apartheid back with more Apartheid laws), but that will be a sad day and hopefully one that does not result in so many unstable region’s actions, that the powers that be, may be too late to correct, only to suffer social and reputational consequences for later . . . against such reasonable demands of normal world citizens too unfortunately!

This is for the ‘Wakil Rakyat’ Tengku acts in the capacity of –  to say that ‘a vote against Tengku Azlan is a vote against the Sultan.’ sounds particularly undemocratic (even threatening?) quite feudal, and somewhat Asabiya. Though to concede this point, the ‘rural-est’ and also Royal Township areas should be left as Malay and/or Islamic as the ruler wishes (the rulers should be aware that they may or may not profess any faith other than the official one, as well, by the UN charter? This could well be an issue of unwanted sovereign-to-subject, subject-to-sovereign peer pressure . . . will not go further into this, as the topic is indeed sensitive – but do not expect ANY Malaysian academic, courtier or politician much less non-Muslim politician, perhaps only non-Malaysians quite close to the Royals? to broach this point.), being a core cultural point of sorts.

I believe that the tipping point had already occurred sometime back and any apologism for absolutism and authoritarianism cannot preclude social development not enmired in the worst aspects of feudality. Being just another wakil rakyat, how does the above 3 items sound to Tengku and since Tengku has access to the Royal Malay Court for certain, Tengku should make these most reasonable 3 items a given rather than indicating that the rulers are not to be disturbed. None are interested in disturbing rulers, but rather the apartheid portions of the nature of the constitution. All world citizens expect a certain amount of fairness. Will the Rulers not act as in :

Article 1 of the Human Rights Charter
” . . . reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood. . . . ” as “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.They are endowed with . . . ” the same?

For there is nothing else in life (barring the immense world spiritual world of emanation in which Royals could well be mere gnats compared to the Djinn and Devas who even then in turn are below the cultivated among faithful, even as Earth is a grain of sand in the Universe, and such inaction is particularly unacceptable and incongruous to the noble spirit (and consideration to the subject citizens) that should typify royalty worldwide. How could any citizen be raised above another in this manner in the material world and with flawed laws? Spiritually untenable.

The article read fine, then Tengku threw the following at the readers. ‘That’s the beauty of Tun Mahathir.‘?!? If Tengku has no idea how much harm was caused by policy written by, or mere presence of this man via cult of personality effect, negative influence via culture of patronage effect, out of touch is indeed the word for this ‘wakil Rakyat’. If this post if offensive, please inform, I will remove this post the next time I update the site.
