On 5 Aug 1957, the Raja-Raja Melayu signed the perjanjian Persekutuan Tanah Melayu with British High Commissioner Sir Donald MacGillivary in King’s House, Kuala Lumpur.
On 15 Aug 1957, the Rang Undang-Undang Perlembagaan Persekutuan Tanah Melayu was passed by the Majlis Mesyuarat Undangan. Pictured below is the 1957 constitution. Continue reading “Malays gave up country name ‘Tanah Melayu’ in 1963, any regrets?”
Some months back, I wrote that Isma is smarter and savvier than Umno. Today I will amend my statement – I now say that Isma is MUCH smarter and MUCH savvier than Umno.
I had also written that Isma is more efficient and effective. Umno does not have half of Isma’s initiative or even a quarter of Isma’s commitment and dedication to the cause.

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Malaysian police have arrested 42 men after a riot by up to 1,000 mostly Nepalese workers sparked fires and destroyed parts of an electronics export factory, highlighting accusations of poor conditions for many of the estimated four million foreign workers in the South-east Asian country.

Najib Razak today claimed that certain groups had played up the special honour paid to MH17 victims because these anti-national unity groups wanted to “break up” the solidarity among the rakyat.

The Christian Federation of Malaysia (CFM) in its Merdeka Day message said that the country is “witnessing an escalation in ethnic and religious extremism, where unchecked sectarian forces of hatred and bigotry, often fuelled by misinformation and misinterpretation, lies and inflammatory speeches, are ripping apart the social fabric of our nation that had been built on the principles of moderation and multi-culturalism”.
One year ago this month, Perkasa Youth chief Irwan Fahmi Ideris called on Najib Razak to resign for our PM’s abysmal failure to govern – see screenshot below.
Irwan recalls in his blog on Tuesday that he and the Perkasa central leadership numbering 10 persons provided their feedback to the PM in a closed door session immediately following GE13.

The incident happened in Guangdong, China. Residents of the city of Foshan enjoy eating snake meat cooked in a variety of ways. The most popular dish is expensive medicinal snake soup.

Continues from ‘Why BN got its ass kicked in Lumut by navy man‘.
Thanks for the heads up, Calvin. The split voting results are interesting indeed. Pro-establishment Malays are definitely boycotting the MCA.
BELOW: ‘MCA can deliver’? What a joke, hahaha!
Najib should just give up the MCA ghost.
The BN candidate who contested in Lumut was Kong Cho Ha aka Donkey Kong – a nickname given the then MCA sec-gen by The J-Star reporters.
BN won Perak in GE13 but lost the Lumut Parliament seat, obtaining only 44 percent of the votes cast Continue reading “Why BN got its ass kicked in Lumut by navy man”

Wong Chen ialah evangelista dan Ahli Parlimen Kelana Jaya iaitu kawasan parlimen kepada DUN Subang Jaya dan Seri Setia (Nik Nazmi).
Perlis Mufti Juanda Jaya and his fatwa committee decided that their state should opt out of the nationwide one-minute silence yesterday for victims of MH17.
They were concerned that the Day of Mourning was contrary to a 1987 national, and a 1974 Perlis, fatwa. See scan of memo issued by Perlis deputy mufti Roslan Esa Continue reading “Trivializing military honours and meaning of the flag”
Cara Dr Mahathir: Jikapun “tidak ada anesthetic untuk mengebaskan atau menidurkan si pesakit yang hendak dibedah, saya akan ikat dan tambat pesakit tadi dan saya akan bedah juga walaupun pesakit menjerit sekuat-kuat jeritan”.
Update: 7 April 2015
PANDANGAN AHLI UMNO 007
Pemegang kad keahlian Umno Baru bernombor 007 ialah Sanusi Junid. Nombor keahlian Tun ialah 001 dan Siti Hasmah 002.
Sekerat tulisan Tan Sri Sanusi dipetik di bawah tentang tindakan Dr M jika pembedahan perlu dilakukan:
“Sejak beberapa bulan yang lalu Tun Dr. Mahathir telah mengkririk secara terbuka dasar-dasar kerajaan. Kemudian beliau telah menarik balik sokongan beliau kepada Dato’ Seri Najib sebagai Perdana Menteri. Kemudian sekali dia mendesak Dato’ Seri Najib supaya berhenti dari jawatannya.
‘PAS terpaksa terima MB wanita‘ (Sinar Harian, 22 Ogos 2014)
Setiausaha Majlis Syura, Nik Zawawi Nik Salleh (gambar bawah), berkata oleh kerana PAS menghormati tahaluf siyasi maka parti Islam itu akur kepada keputusan majoriti.
Do you remember how The J-Star hijacked the recent rally for Gaza and made it appear as if the Christians were the most prominent participants at Dataran Merdeka to support the Palestinians?

Why you all hate Umno so much?
“No, I am not asking him to resign. I just do not agree with his policies,” the Tun told reporters at PWTC on Monday night with regard to pulling his support from Najib.
The self-evident ace in the pack, flashed by the PMO boys, is that whatever we may say about the PM, there is still no one else in the current Umno hierarchy who is at par or able to replace him (except for maybe KuLi).
“… tegas Ustaz Abdullah [Zaik], semua pelampau Kristian di negara ini perlulah menghormati perlembagaan serta institusi beraja seperti mana yang telah termaktub bagi mengelakkan kekacauan antara kaum. Pendirian pelampau Kristian itu telah mencetuskan kontroversi sehingga ramai pihak telah membuat laporan polis.”
First, the question of Dr Mahathir’s timing.
Coincidentally or not, two former group editors of the major Umno-owned papers uploaded commentaries in their respective blogs – and at about the same time too – on the Tun’s hand grenade lobbed at Najib Razak.
Yesterday the Tun set off a mini earthquake. He blogged in Che Det (‘Menegur‘):
“Malangnya sehingga kini tidak ternampak apa-apa perubahan dari segi dasar atau pendekatan walaupun saya cuba menyampaikan pendapat saya, (yang juga pendapat ramai yang datang bertemu saya) secara langsung kepada Dato Seri Najib.”

DAP’s Ong Kian Ming, who is a columnist at The J-Star, wrote today about Khalid Ibrahim’s “desperate and increasing futile attempt to remain as the Mentri Besar of Selangor”.

Article 55 (1) of the Selangor constitution appears to give the Menteri Besar – who heads the state exco – some room to maneuver as to whom he may appoint to provide counsel to the ruler.
It looks like Khalid even can set up a special advisory committee (“body of persons”) in the interim to act under his authority to presently advise the Sultan.

More than a month ago on July 8, I blogged an article titled ‘Selangor solution: Khalid can become MB Umno-PAS‘.
I will need to amend that slightly to now read, Khalid can become MB PAS-Umno.
My thanks to a commenter @ 2014/08/11 at 5:09 pm for his leads on why Khalid Ibrahim’s position can be supported by the Selangor constitution.
Article 53(2)(b) of the Selangor constitution
Khalid’s state government needs only to have a minimum four excos.
As long as the PAS Aduns stay put, Khalid’s state government remains legit in law.
UPDATE (5.55pm): Khalid can keep his job according to Selangor constitution
Today’s headline news – Khalid says Sultan says he stays
