Two Rule of Laws





Rule of Law Part 1: Pak Lah


“Due process of the law would continue its course and police investigation into the sodomy by Anwar would continue till its affirmed.

"What we are looking for is justice.

"We must not forget Saiful and the pain in the arse.

"We must carry out our responsibility so that Saiful’s claims are brought to the court for a decision in the name of justice.”


Rule of Law Part 2: Tony Blair

"The rule of law meant a judiciary that was independent from the government of the day and not subservient to it.

"They are above me and not me above them

"But they will not come to nations that treat the rule of law as an optional extra, or even worse, as an impediment.

"The rule of law also meant laws that were clear, could be understood and applicable.

"It means rules and procedures that are transparent, and rules of evidence that make sense and are fair.

"While the rule of law was an arbiter and a guide, it was also fallible.

"Its inadequacies were not born of corruption or malice, and its errors paled in comparison to its virtues.

"Though in exceptional circumstances that it is possible to have the rule of law without true democracy, it is impossible to have true democracy without the rule of law.

"The truth is that people can be indifferent to the rule of law, except when their own freedom is in jeopardy.

Well, if we follow the Rule of Law and due process, I would have been able to pursue a case with the party I made police report about even though they are a listed organization.

If there is due process in Rule of Law, Sharlini would have deserve the dedication of police in carrying out their duties. Now do we hear anything from the police on this?

If there is due process in Rule of Law, there shouldn't be any attempt to disqualify any leads which would implicate some VVIP. Are VVIP exception from due process?

The current government has run the reputation of the government to the grounds. Talk is cheap and they are as cheap as they can get from our PeeAm...

Rule of Law....where?????

Rule of Law hasn't been around the day Malaysia judiciary went down south.

So, Mr.PM which rule of law you are talking about, you must mean your version as the version most of us common people understand seem to be different from what is practice by your administration.

As usual CAKAP TAK SERUPA BIKIN.
More like double standard law than rule of law!

The Dumb Pak Lah wants to look smart by mixing with Blair The Daft. Both are living crooks with crooked brains.

Will these two ever change for better before they both Sei-Zhored!

this is too thick for badawi to understand. ne is more concern with saiful's arse than the rule of law.

bayi said...

Isn't the way evidence is collected as important? Is Pak Lah talking thesame language as Blair?

hasilox said...

One was talking about jungle law whereas, the other was talking about civilization law. Khairy's version is still the best, in-laws!

kj said...

I read from the papers that Blair charges a bomb to speak. We must have paid him a bomb to come here.

artchan said...

Maverick SM said...

Toolan,

You must be real toolan.

Tai-Choon-Toi,

I would say they are crooks; and I don't think Blair is crook.

Bayi,

Maybe, pak lah are talking different rules of laws for different people.

Hasilox,

Hahaha...a great analogy.

KJ,

Blair didn't charge anything; he is reimbursed for his expenses to attend.

bLair,

He did!

Artchan,

You could be right.
