Stop bullying Julia, Aussie PM's boyfriend says

Sulaiman Kamal | 2:52 AM | | | | | | Best Blogger Tips

SYDNEY - The boyfriend of Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard has hit out at people bullying his partner, saying women are among the worst culprits.
Gillard is Australia's first female leader and is under huge pressure with her ratings in opinion polls at record lows.
In some recent protests she has been called a "bitch" and a "witch" and Tim Mathieson, a former hairdresser who is known as Australia's 'First Bloke', said he could not understand why women were among Gillard's biggest critics.

MADRID - Opposing fans give Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo a hostile reception because he is 'rich, handsome and a great player,' the Portuguese said after Wednesday's 1-0 Champions League win at Dinamo Zagreb.
Ronaldo, the world's most expensive signing, was roundly booed and whistled during the Group D opener in Croatia and was also the target of some robust challenges, one of which drew blood on his right ankle and required several stitches.

Peanuts, not sweeping reforms

Sulaiman Kamal | 3:59 PM | | | Best Blogger Tips

Let’s not be fooled, people. The changes Najib announced are merely cosmetic, and will have to be passed in Parliament first before they become effective.
PEANUTS. That’s what Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s so-called “sweeping reforms” are. They hardly amount to a political transformation.
While it’s cheering to note that the Internal Security Act (ISA) will be repealed – finally, after our many years of waiting – and that the Emergency proclamations are to be lifted – a decision that is decades overdue – it’s disturbing to be told that they will be replaced by two new laws aimed at preventing subversion and safeguarding public order.

Nazri Aziz – the defective law minister

Sulaiman Kamal | 3:51 PM | | | | Best Blogger Tips

Taxi drivers, just like politicians, are a law unto themselves. There are also allegations that the taxi companies are controlled by corrupt politicians.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Mohamed Nazri Aziz said that the government was serious in fighting corruption and announced the latest Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) initiative whereby taxi drivers would become mini-ambassadors and informers on behalf of the MACC.
He added that if the information the cabbies supplied was successful in securing arrests and convictions, they could also be rewarded for their efforts.
Nazri said: “The government is committed to battling corruption through its transformation plan by establishing a National Key Results Area for corruption and reducing corruption via increased enforcement and prevention, while improving the people’s perception of the government’s and public services’ integrity.”

Let’s forge a common destiny

Are we merely celebrating Malaysia Day because of the rising political importance of Sabah and Sarawak, asks R Kengadharan.
Sept 16 is the day Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak joined and became the Federation of Malaysia in 1963 and since 2010 it is called Malaysia Day.
What is the significance of Malaysia Day? How do we recognize Malaysia Day? Can it be classified and/or considered a day where people of different faith, belief and values came together as one?
While today Malaysia is considered a plural society, can we as a society remain cohesive to ensure steady progress?

Canada alerted to Taib’s ‘dirty’ assets

Swiss-based NGO claims that several top Canadian political leaders have taken an interest in the complaints about Taib's alleged money-laundering activities in Canada.
KUALA LUMPUR: Swiss-based NGO, Bruno Manser Fund (BMF), claimed that the Canadian government is taking a keen interest in complaints raised by BMF about Sarawak Chief Minister Taib Mahmud’s alleged money-laundering activities in Canada.
The BMF, however, could not confirm if a formal investigation had been initiated on Taib-family-founded Sakto Corporation for the alleged offence, but said Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper is well aware of the allegation.

Reforms or not, Najib likely to delay GE-13 till 2012

Sulaiman Kamal | 2:13 PM | | | | | Best Blogger Tips

The repeal of the oppressive Internal Security Act as well as several Emergency laws have been played up to the hilt by the mainstream media, all of whom have rushed to portray Prime Minister Najib Razak as a hero to the people.
Many also say the reforms were aimed at boosting Najib's position ahead of snap general elections, a view which is not unreasonable. But it is still hard to imagine that Najib could summon enough courage to call for polls before the end of this year, especially after former premier Mahathir Mohamad openly advised that there was "no harm" in waiting a bit longer!
The prerogative to set the GE-13 date is in the hands of the Prime Minister and one can be sure this date will always be set to be at the most advantageous to himself and to hs Umno party. So no matter how hard the people, his rivals in Umno or Pakatan Rakyat may clamor for early polls, the whole of Malaysia will just have to wait until Najib Razak makes an official announcement.

Repeals: A healthy dose of scepticism

Sulaiman Kamal | 2:07 PM | | | | Best Blogger Tips

Many who read this commentary would accuse me of being unnecessary cynical, that I am not giving credit where it is due. Those who know me better would know that I am an optimist at heart. Which is why I want to caution everyone who is ecstatic over Prime Minister Najib Razak's announcements tonight to take what he says with a large bucket of salt.
On paper, Najib's announcement to repeal the Internal Security Act 1960 (better known as the ISA) and the less well-known Banishment Act 1959 as well as to review certain sections of the Restricted Residents Act 1933, the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984 and the Police Act 1967, should be applauded and welcomed by all who advocate for a freer and more democratic country.
But instead of reacting with glee and overwhelming optimism, I have instead chosen to take a more sceptical, and in my humble opinion, more realistic view of these announcements for three related reasons. These are:

Sept 16: A BN mole upset the Pakatan takeover in 2008

Sulaiman Kamal | 2:01 PM | | | | | | Best Blogger Tips

Three years since the watershed General Elections on Sat 8, Mar 2008, it’s clear that Sept 16 in a future year will be the pivotal date for Sabah and Sarawak to win back their rights and freedom enshrined, inter alia, in the 1963 Malaysia Agreement.
The first shots were fired in the weeks and months running up to Sept 16, 2008 when it appeared with increasing certainty that this would be the moment when Sabah and Sarawak would be the proverbial tail wagging the dog.
Alas, it was not to be.

Is a general election looming in Malaysia?

Sulaiman Kamal | 3:37 AM | | | | Best Blogger Tips

KUALA LUMPUR: A recent slew of populist measures has strengthened expectations that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak could call a snap election within the next six months, as he seeks a mandate to execute economic reforms and strengthen his grip on power.

Bonus payments for civil servants, a cash payout for farmers and affordable housing for low-income earners are among the steps the government has taken to cushion the impact of higher prices and address a major gripe among voters.

Najib is also expected to announce several political reforms on Thursday, Sept 15 including amending a controversial security law to make good on promises to allow increased freedom of speech.

Dr M says British advisers were rulers

Sulaiman Kamal | 3:16 AM | | | | Best Blogger Tips

SERDANG, Sept 12 — Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad conceded today that Malaysia was never colonised by the British but insisted that their advisers acted as if they were the rulers instead of the Malay Sultans.
The 85-year-old former prime minister said that the British “acted as if we were colonised” in response to the claim by the National Professors’ Council (MPN) that Malaya, the precursor to Malaysia, was never colonised by Britain and had merely been a protectorate.
“The Sultans decided to invite the British to come and advise them on how to administer the country. We were not conquered in that sense. But the fact remains that when the British were here, they operated as if we were colonised.

Detention without trial stays but strictly for terrorists, says Nazri Aziz

Sulaiman Kamal | 3:01 AM | | | | | | | Best Blogger Tips

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 15 — Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz admitted tonight that the new legislations replacing the Internal Security Act (ISA) would still allow for detention without trial but only for “terrorists”.
The de facto law minister explained that laws like the Patriot Act in the US, which was introduced after the September 11 terrorist attacks in 2001, would be enacted in place of the now repealed ISA.
The significance of repealing the ISA, said the senior Cabinet minister, was that individuals would no longer be detained for following different political ideologies.

Najib disappoints again: Glamour ISA announcements but little real change

Sulaiman Kamal | 2:13 AM | | | | | | | Best Blogger Tips

Prime Minister Najib Razak's promise to repeal the Internal Security Act 1960 and several other oppressive laws were cautiously greeted by PKR leaders as a victory for the people, including the thousands of activists both local and foreign who fought through the decades for their removal.
However, they slammed Najib for trying to give a false impression to Malaysians that they could look forward to greater democracy and social justice, when effectively, there was little real change and a possibility that new laws made to replace the ISA could contain similarly oppressive clauses.
"Firstly, we don't know what new laws will be made to replace the ISA and Emergency Ordinance. They could be worse. Also, if Najib was really sincere, he would have lifted the Sedition Act and the Official Secrets Act, which they are already using to force the people into obedience. We have always said there was no need for the ISA. The Sedition Act and the OSA were bad enough," PKR strategies director Rafizi Ramli  told Malaysia Chronicle.

Reactions to Najib’s proposed changes

Civil society movements and politicians give their immediate reaction to Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak's pledge to have functional and inclusive democracy.
Civil society movements and politicians give their immediate reaction to Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s pledge to have functional and inclusive democracy.
Balik Pulau MP Yusmadi Yusoff:
ISA is about detention. If the PM is really concerned and sincere, it should also include the release of ISA detainees. It is an issue of dignity and freedom of the person. Najib (Tun) Razak should announce the immediate release of ISA detainees. In his capacity as the PM, he can order the Home Ministry to do so.
There should be a gesture of sincerity. As a lawyer who have dealt with ISA detainees, I know the effects of the ISA on the person. It is very draconian. For me, the hope of the families is to please bring back the victims. That’s the best gift of Hari Malaysia. I hope the prime minister will do it by tomorrow.
I also feel that Najib is merely making a calculated move (to repeal the ISA) to serve BN’s own political interest. It has nothing to do with someone’s freedom. I applaud his move to abolish the ISA but the ball is now in his court.

Pak Samad: Boestamam, Burhanuddin were freedom fighters, Umno grabbed the glory

Malaysia's first prime minister Tunku Abdul Rahman, referred to as 'Father of Independence', was just a "receiver of independence" handpicked by the British colonisers to safeguard their interests in Malaya, said national laureate A Samad Said.
"To me, Tunku was not an independence fighter. He was a receiver, the person approved by the British to 'receive' independence... the British felt that the 'receiver' must be a person who can take care of its interests in Malaya," he said during a public forum in Kuala Lumpur last night.

Cop found guilty of causing Aminulrasyid's death

Jailing Anwar: What good would it do the BN?

Sulaiman Kamal | 3:48 PM | | | | Best Blogger Tips

Cracks are beginning to show within Umno and Barisan Nasional as its leaders face mounting pressure on all fronts with speculation of an imminent general election setting the backdrop for renewed all-out offensive against Anwar Ibrahim.
Already daggers have been drawn against the charismatic PKR and Pakatan Rakyat leader, whom many within Umno still perceive as BN’s main threat in the next election and one they would like to see removed from the political equation at any cost.
Their concern appears well-founded bearing in mind that Anwar’s standing within Pakatan is still strong and he has not wavered in his role as the lynchpin of the opposition coalition despite the many trials and tribulations, most notably the ongoing sodomy trial the 64-year-old politician is currently facing.
With the trial drawing to a close, his detractors are already insistent that he is guilty. There are already calls from several members of parliament and former aides of Anwar who have offered themselves to be prosecution witnesses in his sodomy trial. This follows Anwar’s success in getting the court to allow his defence team to call 15 people, including the prime minister and his wife, as witnesses in the trial.
