Don’t let me walk alone, Najib tells Indian community – UPDATED @ 07:57:53 PM 18-03-2012 – By Yow Hong Chieh – March 18, 2012

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak attends the 30th anniversary of the Sri Murugan Centre (SMC) at Sekolah Rendah Jenis Kebangsaan Tamil (SJKT) Vivekananda, Petaling Jaya. — Picture by Choo Choy May

PETALING JAYA, March 18 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak asked the Indian community today to entrust their future to him for another term, citing the success of government programmes meant to improve their lot over the past three years.

This included RM440 million allocated to Tamil schools, RM80 million to houses of worship, more places for high-achieving students in matriculation courses as well as help given to thousands of “stateless” Indians to obtain citizenship since 2009.

The prime minister told a crowd of more than 3,000 at SJK(T) Vivekananda here this afternoon that this proved he had kept his promises to give Indians in Malaysia a “fair deal”, and pledged to keep building on this success in coming years.

“If I have delivered, and the government has delivered, just imagine if we have another five years what we can do for the Indian community and the nation,” he said on the first stop of his one-day tour of Selangor.

Najib said his efforts to help the Indians were sincere and had nothing to do with the coming election as the programmes aimed at uplifting the community began three years, after he took over from Tun Abdullah Badawi.

The government will not fool the Indian community with empty promises meant to gain votes, he added, in an apparent swipe at the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) pact.

“I am not a politician of that nature. I am committed to the future of Malaysia. I will not do anything to compromise the future of the nation,” he said.

Najib stressed, however, that he would only be able to serve the community and the country if they “walked with him”, as he could not continue to help Indians or Malaysians on his own.

“I cannot do this alone. I cannot walk this journey alone I must walk with all of you to achieve what we set out to do…,” he said.

“I can only succeed if you join hands with me. Let us build a better future for the Indian community and for all Malaysians.”

Since taking office, Najib has gone on a charm offensive to win over the Indian vote after the usually staunch Barisan Nasional (BN) supporters forsook the ruling coalition in Election 2008.  The community’s swing to the opposition followed a government crackdown on the November.

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

By not using that mandate BN already has to grant the below 3 items :

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.

PM Najib is already making the Indians and minorities walk alone.

So Indian voters, (also Chinese and Orang Asli voters) if PM Najib makes everyone walk alone by disenfranchising them with continuance of Bumiputra Apartheid, all of us voters should return the same kind of disenfranchisement to PM Najib by putting their votes for BN in another party or independent.

It is not the voters that let PM Najib walk alone, it is PM Najib that has left the Indian voters and other minorities walking alone. PM Najib is in fact walking off with that mandate the Indians and minorities gave PM Najib.

Meanwhile Pakatan Rakyat is not much better a choice due to :

Nepotism
Plutocracy
Limitless Terms

750K funerals

The Gambier Threat – Mid 2010 (Amend those laws at once! Also address the APARTHEID.)
http://img825.imageshack.us/img825/1378/gambier1.jpg – unless those forms are filled in and months before through preferred vendors (cronies), DAP will tear down your awning / private staircase / business stall, take away your gas tank / sue your journalist / confiscate squatter traders’ fruits, cheapo sunglasses or crappy ‘cincin batu’ set in tin alloy, or bottled and canned drinks? . . . KOMTAR Lockdown, Beachboy harrassing, gas tank confiscating, Condominium staircase trashing . . .

Penang’s 300 out of 1.5 million EXCO Elections (instead of the promised Local Council Elections), failure to declare MP assets, while pretending to ask the undemocratically voted 0.02% quorum instead of 66.6% quorum EXCOs . . .

See Teo Beng Hock? Or the Chinatown MRT spat? ALL under Pakatan’s watch. Most people detest such behaviour by political parties, regardless of race, and with the nepotism and limitless term issue, with the eyeing of potential of Hudud (something that hopelessly apartheid/lapdog BN doesn’t even want), Pakatan Rakyat is as bad a group as PERKASA this day.

Pick the best :
BN        Apartheid, Nepotism and Corruption
PR        Some Nepotism and Corruption (Pakatan we only use you to punish BN with, Pakatan is equally useless and abusive . . . )
3rd Force    Corruption only? (Best)

Potential 3rd Force Parties are :

KITA, JATI, MCLM (whats left of it, but homophobes could find it a good party that has 20 candidates), PCM, Borneo Front, Konsensus Bebas, HRP/Hindraf and PSM maybe SUPP if SUPP wakes up (much like MCA/MIC and Gerakan will not) and perhaps SAPP and LDP . . .

And any independent candidates as in the list below who can CLEARLY take up the above 3 items (not like mealy mouthed Pakatan who looks preferring to keep the entire term limitless, apartheid system in place to benefit themselves) . . . independent candidates, if not potential wolves/turncoats in the making :

1) Maimun Yusuf http://www.worldbulletin.net/index.php?aType=haberArchive&ArticleID=19162 (Maimun is 89, not particularly educated and quite poor . . . )

2) Koon Yew Yin (the plutocrat Civil Engineer who cannot commit to candidacy though suitable),

3) Ummi Hafilda (PKR hater at odds with PKR VP Azmin who is said to be an UMNO pro-racist type . . . )

4) Auntie Bersih 2.0 the high profile one Ambiga Sreenevasan (who struck down rightful Perak MB Nizar while Bar Council President during BN’s 11th term)

5) Another Auntie Bersih 2.0 Annie Ooi Siew Lan (. . . basking in limelight for being old but not yet running for candidacy, is there a Malay and also Orang Asli Auntie Bersih as well who believes in the 3 items? Step forth and let the equality minded citizens of all races vote . . . )

6) Nobel Laureate Dr. Said Samad (who said he did not want to die useless but can’t find the inclination to run for candidacy at 76 . . . how much better off you are to not commit to offering the people a choice of independent candidate – educated, well loved, comfortably well off, lots of spare time . . . see candidate 1 Pak Samad and think . . .)

7) any plutocrats out there with a conscience ready to fund some 99%ters (especially Malays) to run on the above 3 items .

Of course PM Najib could make things easy for himself and everyone (PM Najib shouldn’t even say PM Najib is walking alone, the mandate is with BN at this very moment, PM Najib is PM! What does PM Najib mean walk alone!?! Does PM Najib think the voters are fools? Or maybe PM Najib doesn’t know BN has the mandate already! All who are second class citizens (more so the Indians who are the worst off among minorities in Malaysia this day) are walking alone because PM Najib will not grant the above 3 items . . .

By granting the above 3 items, in which case we’d be in a 2nd world scenario, no apartheid but with some nepotism and lots of corruption, PM Najib would be walking with all Malaysians instead in a 2nd term as PM for certain. Don’t make the minorities walk alone PM Najib, then accuse the minorities of the same. Podah!

RE: ARE YOU A WEATHERCOCK, PETE?? – Tuesday, 13 March 2012 Super Admin

Dear Yang Mulia Raja Petra Kamarudin,

I know I do not have the right, neither the privilege to ask you to post this reply as the website belongs to you, and it is entirely at your own discretion whether you want to oblige, or just conveniently turn a deaf ear.

What I want to say now is, there appears to be a gross misunderstanding here between you me the gutless, choontoiless Jeffrey Ong.

I was not complaining about the RM20 registration fee, which as you said is no big deal. I can miss a meal or two to be among my fellow Malaysians and you, that is not the problem. The problem is FEAR, you are right. The Rakyat fear the long arms of the Government and the occasional warnings from the mouth of Rais Yatim that they would do this or that, and Hishamuddin Tun Hussein has yet to announce the contents of the Act to replace the ISA. What more, even the IGP could be involved with nefarious activities, as revealed by you. What is there to prevent him from sending some thugs to bash us up, or finish us altogether?

Yang Mulia, you are blessed with good fortune and hailed from Royalty, but not every Malaysian enjoys that status, so FEAR sticks in their mind that once put behind bars, they cannot, like you upon release, take flight with their family members in tow to join you in Manchester, UK, reside there till the tide turns. They are not “freedom fighters”, only mere wage-earners, and if they are imprisoned or in prison, who is going to feed those hungry mouths at home?

Having seen the amounts, hundreds of thousands you had to pay to set up this website, and some more to pay to switch blog from Joomla to WordPress, etc., etc., we are sure you do not depend on the registration fees to keep and maintain it, and operate it for that many years already.

May I venture to say that your past business sense and acumen should also tell you that the more popular your blog is, the more advertisements you will attract to augment your income and help defray administration costs. Therefore, in order to gain popularity and recognition of the reading public, more comments should be encouraged, though those frivolous and crude uncouth ones can be eliminated through screening process of your Admin. The Star newspaper would long have wound up had it not been for the heavy volumes of adverts to become the leading English daily.

Please do not take too hard on yourself and whack me like hell to kingdom come for asking you to just “open up the window and let the sunshine in”. You are at full liberty to deny me or anybody that request for the site belongs to you and only you. I am just suffering from a dearth of home news and only hoping get to feel the pulse of Malaysia by reading the numerous comments by Malaysians. If the comments become scarce, because of registration requirement, people like Jocelyn Tan (pro-Govt) and Jaswant Kaur (pro-Opposition) will not be challenged for their remarks and opinions by both sides of the political divide. So the reports will be lop-sided.

You were right in saying that fear factor has even prevented many voters to exercise their rights, thinking that “the government may find out whom you vote for”, but on the other hand, if you “open up your window” as I pleaded, the voters too could feel the changing groundswell and brave the challenge to vote according to their conscience with the clarion calls from those who comment over the last few days before the GE13. Then, let’s say, because of this move by MT, the Opposition wins the next GE, and who then will try to find out whom you vote for. If any, they will thank the brave voters for making their dream to Putrajaya come true.

The Malaysians have “choontois”, big ones too, I believe, but they cannot afford to risk losing the choontois when the odds are stacked steeply against them.

Finally, spare some thoughts for the senior citizens who possess vast experience and knowledge about our country, but they do not own credit cards to facilitate the payment of registration fee, or they find the registration process too tedious, so we leave them out in the cold, with their mouths full of things they want to share, but unable to do so.

Today, I am happy to note that the number of comments to your bashing me in this exchange have swelled to a respectable high of nearly 30. That’s the way, aha aha, I like it.

Since I got bashed by you and some who commented, I hope you will post this letter after which, I will shut my gap, and forever hold my peace!

“THOSE WHO BRING SUNSHINE INTO THE LIVES OF OTHERS CANNOT KEEP IT FROM THEMSELVES!”

Salam, Minta Ampun, Yang Mulia.

I dunno what more evidence we need to convince the voters that Anwar is no good.

a) He stole Sabah from Pairin Kitingan and then totally annihilate the kadazan dusun. This guy does not believe in democracy and he believes in bribing his way to power.
b) Totally useless education minister. he introduce bahasa baku, which is no longer used.
c) Nalla Karuppan stood his ground defending Anwar during sodomy 1, despite facing a death threat and torture under police interrogation. Today, this guy is kicked out by his buddy Anwar out of the window.
d) Based on many allegations, it seems Anwar is a sex addict. Nothing wrong with it if he admits it. But not honest if he don’t.

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

Pakatan might be good for 1 term at most, unless PM Najib grants :

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.

‘Youth’ as the middle class that never made it? — Farish A. Noor – March 20, 2012

MARCH 20 — They are rapacious, vicious, merciless, demanding, intolerant, arrogant, boisterous, spoilt and subversive. At the worst of times they bring chaos in their wake, disrupt the settled assumptions of our quotidian lives, block traffic, make noise, break things and are generally inhospitable, unsociable and uncivilised.

No, I am not referring to the Mongol hordes that burned their way across Central Asia in the Middle Ages and laid waste to Baghdad. And no, this is not some invasion of marauding aliens I am talking about. But practically everything that has been said above has been said about the younger generation of our time, an age when being young seems to be a sin and a burden to Youth and to those around them.

If we were to believe some of the alarmist reports and editorials we have read in recent months, one would be led to believe that the best thing to do with the young of the world is to send them to another planet. Worse still is the fact that much of this hysterical nonsense has found its way into the editorial columns of not only respectable newspapers, but also security journals, journals of international relations, policy papers and conference speeches. The DAVOS meeting concluded last year that Youth have become a global problem of sorts, akin to HIV, epidemics, natural disasters and wars. How? And why has this shift happened?

From North America to Western Europe, from North Africa to Southeast Asia, there seems to be a growing unease that so many young people today feel disenfranchised and out of touch with society. Plummeting figures of young voters point to apathy and neglect, which then gets re-interpreted as the symptoms of a younger generation that doesn’t feel or care about its place in society. But if one were unfortunate enough to fall into the category of “Youth” today, one might be able to understand why.

Let’s start with this premise: Youth has nothing to do with age, or being young; but is rather a subject-position and social-position that has more to do with one’s proximity (or distance) from power and the structures of power (both political and economic).

Let us remember that up to the inter-war years of the 20th century there was no such thing as Youth culture: Young people (that is, those in their childhood up to their teens and early 20s) dressed like their parents did and appeared as adults in micro format.

Youth culture was a by-product of the capital-driven mode of development that also led to the creation of the leisure industry and mass consumption, which democratised consumption as never before. Prior to the 20th century there was no such thing as a leisure culture for the working classes.

Theme parks, holiday parks, etc were the invention of modernity and the development of late capitalism which brought with it a culture of mass consumerism that also identified social actors and agents with their respective places in the chain of consumption. It was only from the 1930s that poor people began to go on cheap holidays, etc.

Youth, therefore, is a class construct and it conforms to the market rule that there has to be a constant human surplus of those whose economically-marginalised position makes them pliable to the market and a steady source of cheap labour when needed. Simply put, we all know that, from the age of Adam Smith, this is how the market has worked: It creates both demand and a surplus of workers who keep costs down.

Today, when we look at the state of the economies of countries like the United States, Europe, Japan, China, India, North Africa and Southeast Asia, we see the by-products of successful development at work — it cannot be denied that up to the 1980s at least the booming markets had created a new middle class that never existed in many of these societies; and with that new middle Class came new class values and aspirations too.

Two things, however, have happened that might account for the present state of affairs in the very same societies that now seem to be on the brink of crisis.

The first is that with the failure of the Soviet model and the triumph of capital, there developed the new prevailing wisdom that the market knows best and that the best form of governance was minimalist. This was most aptly demonstrated in the rolling back of the state (and the state’s responsibilities) in the United Kingdom during the time of Margaret Thatcher.

Free market economics began to decide and determine not only the market but also how society viewed itself and regulated itself, as the state began to relinquish its duties to the citizenry. In due course, things such as the health service, social security, law and order, public space and the environment, etc all came under market control and the management of corporations.

The second thing to happen was the modernisation of modes of production and services, with the technological revolution taking off where the industrial revolution stopped. The 1990s witnessed the rise of the internet and all things virtual: online banking, online sales, online consultancies, etc. Now this of course had an adverse impact on old jobs and professions that were labour intensive such as banking, the postal service, etc.

These two factors, however, were and remain irreconcilable: On the one hand, the market demands more space for it to work freely and where enterprise and innovation can bring about reform. But on the other hand, some forms of innovation have incurred a human cost in terms of unemployment in the service sector. But, today, the state is less able to cope with these new social inequalities due to its own relative weakness.

“Youth” happens to be that group of young adults who are caught in between two worlds: On the one hand childhood, without its attendant concerns and responsibilities; and on the other hand adulthood, with its social embeddedness in the political economy.

But what happens in ageing countries like Japan or Western Europe when the older generation demands to be employed longer and longer (for fear of the absence of a social security safety net) and when the young have fewer opportunities to enter the job market?

Perhaps this is what we are really seeing in some parts of the world like North Africa and Southeast Asia as well as Europe today: A growing number of young people who are being made to wait in line while the older generation hold on to their jobs and refuse to vacate the ever-shrinking pool of occupational spaces the state and the economy can provide.

Politicians bemoan the so-called “lazy youth” of today who “don’t want to work” and “have no sense of attachment”, but they forget that if the young do not work it is because many of them are not given the chance to work in the first place. And if they have less of a sense of social attachment, it may well be because there is little investment by and in them by society in the first place. If young people are not being given the chance to integrate and embed themselves in the political economies of their respective countries, how on earth can we expect them to feel a sense of responsibility or belonging?

The problem, it seems, has less to do with Youth “culture” or “identity” or “music” or whatever. As the crisis lingers on, and more and more young people find their social advancement halted, the category of “Youth” extends further.

Today it is apparent that there are millions of people in the 30s who remain unemployed and are at best plugged into an extended education system as they bide their time, hoping for an economic upturn. Being young has less to do with age now, and more to do with one’s relative distance from productive work and an economic stake in society.

This is less a cultural problem or even an age issue, but seems to be a problem related to the management of human resources, or rather the labour surplus that we see all over the world today. And this is why the state cannot continue to retreat from its responsibilities and leave things to the market alone: For if the market were to have its way, then more productivity and profit would be gained through more job cuts, more technological innovations, and less dependency on human labour and services.

So a word of advice to the politicians in the East and West who fear the Youth of today and wish they would simply disappear: The Youth are not your enemies, and if you listen to them long enough you may realise that they are the aspiring middle class that never made it.

Their aspirations are not revolutionary but actually middle class too. They do not wish to destroy the state, but rather want the state to work. It’s not their fault that it doesn’t.

Save for the part where copying and adopting of semi-essays in the form of responses, it’s pleasant to have address in such conciseness, but will ‘Fellow’ here PLEASE make clear that stand on and endorsement 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.

Well there will always political mercenaries, but I will complain to highlight the issue anyway : Academia should not be marred by faux high mindedness and gently applied copying of the painfully earned perspectives of any who ‘never made it’. Some of us were way beyond middle class, but for the sheer stupidity and viciousness of the people around them, sometimes even their own families, as well as APARTHEID accepting society. Use that ‘Fellow’ ethos for some good or be branded a crypto-racist and hypocrite if not take on your ‘superiors’ (fellow propagandists higher up in the hierarchy). There is no engaging people who play all sides while being unable to commit to Articles 1 and 18 of the UNHCR. Don’t let them use you as a pro-apartheid hatchet-man Farish.

Guan Eng Practises False Democracy by  Chai Kim Sen – Tuesday, 20 March 2012 15:43

DAP’s constant use of gag orders shows that DAP practises false democracy and dictatorship when DAP uses internal channels to rid party dissidents as well as to suppress the freedom of speech.

DAP Secretary General Lim Guan Eng always talks about transparency, fairness and justice. However, his instruction to DAP National Chairman Karpal Singh to stop airing his views and grouses is proof that Guan Eng practises autocracy instead as he does not hesitate to rebuke his own party’s chairman.

Guan Eng’s actions in ordering Karpal Singh to keep internal problems within the party are in direct contrast to his earlier promises. He has ignored the process of fairness and transparency, and even his own chairman was not spared from warnings and threats of disciplinary actions. Thus we can see that DAP is putting the cart before the horse when Guan Eng can impose a gag order on Karpal Singh but he himself is free to talk to the media.

Rome was not built in a day

The fact that Karpal Singh had decided to discuss this issue publicly shows that the problem has reached a breaking point. On the other hand, Guan Eng is trying to conceal the internal problems of the party and has turned a blind eye to the DAP Chairman, thus proving that Guan Eng is trying to deceive the people that the issue has been solved internally.

Although DAP has been in control of Penang for only four years, they still party interest above the rakyat. Their old method of resolving any topics and events of interest to the party internally and the selective processing of issues which are favourable to the party can no longer work to convince the people. DAP’s approach to quickly resolve the issue of Ramasamy’s allegations of corruption within the party is an example of selective processing.

The so-called harmony within DAP is non-existent and is only an attempt to deceive the public using political means, but what the rakyat want is an open and transparent way of handling disputes involving political parties and state governments. Thus, Karpal Singh’s allegations on the party’s infighting also involve the public’s right to know, and on this issue, Malaysians will not compromise.

CHAI KIM SEN is MCA Youth Secretary-General

(The views expressed above belongs to the author in its entirety and does not represent the opinion of Malaysian Mirror in any way)

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

I won’t say that MCA with a racial pedigree and history spanning 1000s of years, should not sell themselves short for a bunch of low minded peoples who thrive by threat of ‘race riots’ and corruption than the Articles of the UNHCR, but MCA’s cowardice is unbelievable.

MCA is also gagged PERMANTLY. It is clear that the political system as standing in laws and constitution are economic and social apartheid. Why has MCA not said anything??? One dictator DAP replacing another dictator UMNO, makes no difference, and MCA currently is dictated to (by proxy a vote for MCA is a vote for UMNO) and DAP of course is autocratic (and term limitless and nepotistic as well, don;t miss these terrible Mubarak, Gaddaffi type flaws) as Chai Kim Seng said. (Try watching Dalip Singh on Peter Segal’s Get Smart 2008 – vague resemblance to Chai Kim Seng . . . ). How about MCA throw their own ‘Siegfried’ out of the window to embrace and fight for :

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.

Instead of tacit approval of Bumi-Apartheid. MCA people may have benefited off the wealth (which was illegal anyway by any first world standard) so how about the bouncer (MCA) taking over the mistreating boss’s seat (UMNO)? Equality is a given in Articles 1 and 18 of the UNHCR, Bumi-Apartheid is RUBBISH.

Money politics and Taib’s deception – Hornbill Unleashed March 20, 2012 by Awang Abdillah @ 8:12 AM
To maintain his hold on power, Sarawak Chief Minister Taib Mahmud has fine-tuned his ability to control and utilise targeted people including Umno’s top brass.

As Chief Minister of a state within Malaysia, Taib Mahmud has limited powers at his disposal, unlike his counterparts at the federal level who control manifold power buttons.

However, the paradigm of political ignorance prevalent among the rural people in Sarawak, and the massive corruption among the national leaders with the exception of PAS and DAP party stalwarts in Malaysia , provide Taib with the right ingredients to pursue his craze for power.

The politics of deception and money politics thrives very well in such an environment.

Hence, Taib’s success in holding on to power all these years is his ability to control and utilise targeted people through the art of deception and the power of money politics.

That he has willing parties – the ignorant rural poor who live in poverty and are in dire need for hard cash, Bumiputera politicians and cronies who want to have a share of Taib’s riches and the Umno top brass who are mega spenders – makes his job easier.

Their desperation fuels his desire to be one of the most powerful and wealthiest men in Malaysia.

Taib will buy the voters during every election season with illicit cash and dispensing of business “crumbs” to Bumiputera political leaders, henchmen and cronies to ensure they toe the line.

He also buys loyalty when he acts as a banker to the personal needs of the Umno elite.

According to his game plan, over a period of time these people would become very dependent on him and invaribly will have to live with the Taib Dependence Syndrome (TDS) scourge.

This is the modus operandi that enables Taib to buy the hearts and minds of many Malay, Melanau and Dayak voters, leaders and supporters.

He corrupts and tackles Umno politicians with money, making them subservient to his lusts.

Taib’s power over federal leaders

Men who sell their souls, principles and values to a power-crazy man are men without dignity and morals, and are traitors to their own religion, people and country.

Through this successful twinning of deception tactics, Taib has been able, firstly, to ensure that the voters will support all his Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) candidates no matter who or what they are in every state or general election.

Secondly, he has managed to tackle and control the federal leaders and the heads of relevant federal agencies.

Thirdly, he has managed to break up the Dayak parties and lastly, he has gone on to build a pool of henchmen and cronies who will operate and support his power-abusing network system.

With these in place, Taib can now enjoy the wealth and riches of the state with ease. Taib has been on this despicable job for a long time and with limited resistance.

Like I said earlier, unlike a responsible government, power abusers do not care to tackle the real national and state challenges.

They choose to simply ignore them.

However, when these challenges turn against them in the form of major national and state issues, then they are forced to deal with these matters – not to solve them, but to defend their embattled personal position and power.

This is exactly what Umno and PBB leaders have been doing since coming to power in 1981.

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

If Taib had been truly ambitious, Taib’d would avoid sequestering such massive wealth, being modest of lifestyle so that declaration of assets would be possible, being a most humble, well loved CM ever, and even ensure as many Orang Asli were as happy as possible enough to vote him all the time – then on the basis of ‘Native Sovereignty’ demand secession via the UN much like East Timor did. Instead of ‘liberating’ East Malaysia, Taib chose to be UMNO’s stooge and destroy people’s livelihoods or steal land FROM Orang Asli. Instead of OWNING East Malaysia entirely, and who knows declaring self as Raja, Taib is now about to be ousted for being related to BN for apartheid, abusing poor Orang Asli folk, and criminal scorched earth style deforestation. In either case Taib was never a very ambitious type, very money minded though and at bargain prices where giving away Orang Asli land and citizenships is concerned.

To remind, voters in east Malaysia should stick to East Malaysian political parties ONLY and perhaps even vote for Orang Asli only.
