I am not in KL and was not able to update my blog regularly. But I have been thinking very hard about some of the problems, controversies, stunning allegations and issues besetting us and the nation in the last few days.
Today, at a lunch with a prominent retired politician we shared some of our concerns about the country.
Imagine, the P. Balasubramaniam's SD drama, the sodomy allegations against Anwar Ibrahim and RPK's SD against Rosmah. These cases have created bad public perceptions against our national leaders.
Worse, many Malaysians are now confused and disappointed with politics in the country.
It is unfortunate that many of us have lost our trust in some key institutions in the country. Allegations of case tempering by judges, manipulations in police investigation and sensational involvements of political personalities in some of the most controversial cases are worrying. Together, they pose a great risk and challenge to Malaysia's credibility.
As Lim Kit Siang puts it, the P. Balasubramaniam's about turn is now making more people believing the his first SD. This is unfortunate. The more we wanted the public to gain access to real information and facts, the more confused they have become.
Is there law and order in the country? Is there transparency in our justice system? Is there a credibility gap or wedge between the people and the government? Can we correct our battered public image?
Governments around the world are focused on fighting inflation, social-economic challenges and other challenges including job creation but ours is busy with political assassinations and contestations.
We have had enough of all these nonsense. I have said that we demand all parties involved to come out clean on everything. It is disappointing to note that politicians, who wanted our mandate to rule, after getting the mandate are neglecting their responsibility.
Here, I share Wong Chun Wai, Marina Mahathir and other's call to "to post their disgust at our politicians and ignore all these press statements, press conferences and their lies, excuses and explanations for the next 24 hours."
