The PM's recent visit to China on the heels of his Dad years ago was for brownie points. In addition, he must have been selling oil and gas when our resources are almost depleted. Many are not convinced about this "1Malaysia" jingle that he's coined or whether it has anything to do with governing other than wasting money on T-Shirts, food, airfares flags and event management. Some say that it's so hollow the echoes reverberate.
So where are we? Do we feel safe, despite the flashy "liberalization" news socking our ears the las few days?
The inclination is we're not. The Royal Malaysia Police has been hogging the news to publicize some work but the real work is still undone. What happened to the millions of dadah lost in Police custody? Why have people died in lockups? Is there mercy killing?
Why is Malaysia placed in a human traficking list? Are our borders as porous as our pockets? What's the Malaysian Army doing?
"...report said Malaysia is a destination and source “for women and children trafficked for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation and for men, women and children trafficked for the purpose of forced labor.” Countries cited for failing to take adequate steps to address trafficking can be subject to limited sanctions...." - www.chinapost.com.tw
Apparently, they're busy helping UMNO-BN utilizing their intel facilities to keep tabs of who vote for UMNO and who don't. Great, isn't it? Or lame? Blatant abuse of public money to do an unconsitutional act. The Police, too have been busy in Manik Urai. It isn't clear what they're doing. Making commissions on canopies and food catering? We have to pay the allowances, too. Those ordinary policemen would do well to spend quality time with their children instead of intimidating Manik Urai voters!
Meanwhile, Zahid Hamidi, Defence Minister doesn't think Malaysians know what our country's defence ability is. He damn well could be right!
