Malaysia is like Zimbabwe?

Political analyst Abdul Aziz Bari likened those who hold the reins of power in Malaysia to a bunch of 'thugs'.

According to him, these individuals do as they please without proper regard for the law of the land and the percepts laid down in the federal constitution.

"We are like Zimbabwe, just with another name!" stressed the law expert.

Elaborating, Abdul Aziz said: "I don't know how else to call them, sometimes we need to call a spade, a spade. What we have is a state of lawlessness, it's like the law of the jungle."

According to the UIA law professor, in Malaysia, "the judiciary takes its cue from the government."

"When you have a judiciary like what we have, what can we do? In normal circumstances you go to court to compel the parties who refuse to do its legal duty to do it. But not in our case," he said.

What is worse, according to Abdul Aziz, Barisan Nasional is "undermining or simply could not care less about the constitution."

"BN has demonstrated complete disregard for the rule of law and supremacy of the constitution, either the letter or the spirit of it," he said.

Abdul Aziz believes that the BN government is clearly going against the constitution when it set up the JPP (Federal Development Department) which is ultra vires of the defined rights of the states.

he also criticised the federal government's 'play acting' in making much ado when giving assistance and aid during natural disasters to opposition held states.

According to Abdul Aziz, this rot of lawlessness goes right down to BN's core which is Umno.

He is of the opinion that the Umno warlords cannot be reformed and as long as they exists, Umno cannot be reformed.

"They simply don't want to do it," he said.

Sometimes I feel not enough Malaysians love and appreciate this country enough to want only the best for this blessed land.

In this respect, we Malaysians do not understand patriotism. Which explains why UMNO continues to wield so much power over the land amidst all the failures that have brought us to where we stand now.

It's an awfully sad situation. But I guess we deserve what we get. After all, we are always reminded that if we don't like it, we can always get out of here. Maybe at the end of the day, it is the only option left.

That's another sad note to end the year, again.


Happy Winter Solstice Day, Mave!

Tough year ahead for Malaysia, says geomancer

THE year ahead does not look too good for Malaysia, according to a geomancer quoted in China Press.

Geocosmic Centre for Yi Jing Metascience Research Malaysia adviser Dr Chuah Chong Cheng predicted that the country would witness the death of a prominent politician and face an issue concerning the sale of water to Singapore next year.

Dr Chuah, who is an expert in I-Ching (the Book of Change), was reported as forseeing the politician dying of a heart attack in May or June.

Malaysians, he said, had endured a “very difficult year this year” and although next year would also be tough, the situation was expected to improve.

Dr Chuah also predicted that it would be better for Barisan Nasional if elections were pushed to a later date.

“The best for Barisan is if elections are set for 2012,” he said.
