BN Consensus Fails!

Only days ago, the BN Supreme Council held a meeting to discuss consensus building and a code of ethics for all members in its bid to control racist and sensitive sentiments in the coalition.

Yesterday, PM Abdullah Badawi and Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar have shown to us that the BN consensus is DEAD.

It is unthinkable for the duo to approve the use of ISA against Raja Petra Kamaruddin, Teresa Kok and Tan Hoon Cheng without consulting the cabinet which is the highest executive body. Did Abdullah consult his other coalition partners, knowing that his action will affect them badly?

Clearly, it is NO longer tenable for the coalition to exists if UMNO continues with its solo act and in the process hurt innocent victims with their action.

I would like to URGE Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar to resign immediately for his total incompetence and insensitivity. This is the same minister who had instructed the police to mount roadblocks when Anwar was present in the parliament causing massive traffic jams throughout Klang Valley.
Earlier, he said that the ISA was used on Tan to protect her 'safety'. This is the most preposterous justification. She could be warned or given police protection. Where is the threat coming from? Why didn't the police arrest the perpetrators who are threatening her safety instead of detaining her under ISA? The use of ISA here shows that Syed Hamid Albar is NOT FIT to become the Home Minister.

DAP should mull a legal action against the government and the police for using the ISA against MP Teresa Kok without a valid justification. MP Teresa Kok has provided exemplary leadership and is a good role model for Malaysian women. At all times, she has acted responsibly in her speeches and parliamentary conduct.

Syed Hamid Albar said today that Sin Chew Daily reporter Tan Hoon Cheng could be released as soon as today. We want him to RELEASE the two other detainees or charge them in court IMMEDIATELY.

The government's failure in ensuring a just and fair governance has made me change my mind about crossovers. We cannot ignore the possibility of Malaysia turning into a failed nation if this irresponsible behavior from the government were to continue.

We MAY have to support a change of the Federal Government as a last resort to heal the country.

Please, please stop sending smses and emails calling the Chinese to unite against the Malays. THIS IS NOT A RACIAL CHALLENGE. RPK is a Malay royalty. Similarly, we have stood up for him.

This is a CHALLENGE against our DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS and MALAYSIANS OF ALL RACES must stand up to defend our sacred rights.


Focus on getting massive support from all Malaysians, friends of Malaysia and our RIGHTMINDED MPS and Assemblymen who are truly Malaysians to stand on our side.

There is term that describe the future fertiliser compounds produced by the male of the bovine species. That was what came out of the mouth of Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar at a press conference at the Bukit Aman police headquarters.
No matter what you want to say, our police force is more professional than that. Please, Minister, do not make our policemen look like fools. You are caught with your hand in the cookie jar. Admit you made a foolish mistake. You played politics rather than taking the interest of the nation at heart.

Syed Hamid Albar is an intellectual light-weight. The reason he gave for arresting the reporter for her own protection reminds me of the Mafia demanding protection money from small businesses for their own protection.

Unfortunately, the small biz owners were too frightened to ask: Protection from what? From whom?

Police Should Give Explanation On Reporter's Arrest, Says Shabery.

As the Home Minister explanation sounded stupid, now we have another spin from another Minister.
This time passing the buck to the police.

you are not the only one. the latest vicious act by the govt has nudged many of us to support the crossover.
my wife, who has been apolitical all her life, commented that this govt is evil and no longer deserves anymore support.
Its now more ominous in that the great nation divider is now back to orchestrate from behind to further divide this nation.
