Selangor Temple relocation meeting turned sour

From Malaysia today news and the STAR online, the meeting between Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim hit a snag after residents start acting rudely by throwing chairs and shoes on the 150 year old temple relocation to a new site.

It seems like Malaysians are starting to go back to ancient civilisation, rudeness and emotions rules the day. The protest sparked controversy when some of the participants brought a cow’s head and left it at the gates of the state secretariat building.

Check out the poll on the handling of situation in Selangor.

Another poll on the cow’s head.

A repeat of 1998? Anwar’s arrested today! Arrest warant for Raja Petra as well!

Just barely a few days i’ve posted in my blog saying the country’s political outlook gets more funnier, ridiculous and now the repeat of the famous black eye incident where DSAI (Datuk Seri Dr Anwar Ibrahim) been bundled by police and detained. Is there anything new here on the story line? Read this in STAR, MalaysiaKini, SinChew , Nurul Izzah’s blog and NST

Following this, Malaysia Kini reported that RPK (Raja Petra) author of MalaysiaToday Blog has ben issued arrest warrant. What a good timing!

The people of Malaysia are getting fed-up on the excessive politics and the politicians are not concentrating on the economy. Come to the next GE the people might not want to vote at all. In view of all these, where are the real saviours of malaysia? We are having one group the current government and the next one the government in waiting, well sad to say both also behaves like children, we need another stronger group that will protect the Malaysians, irregardless of race, identity or culture. A truly Malaysia for the people of Malaysia. We need to get the politicians to crack their brains and get on to work for the people that voted that in. We need to give them KPI (Key performance Index) to gauge their efficiency. Do u agree with me people?

Blow to UMNO as Former PM Tun Mahathir Quits As Member Pressuring Badawi

While Pak Lah and its team still struggling to keep the UMNO intact, former Malaysia PM Tun Dr Mahathir called it a day by quitting as UMNO member and urged the rest to follow suit to pressure the current premier Abdullah Badawi. Another UMNO party veteran Tan Sri Sanusi Junid also quits as well. Meanwhile Tengku Razaleigh refuted rumours that he will quit and maintained his stance that he will challenge PM Abdullah in UMNO polls scheduled in December.

Some UMNO insiders said the decision by the former premier and veterans might further weakens UMNO and give way to Pakatan Rakyat to further grip power in the disoriented BN coalition. Looks like the rakyat will be worried as curent political situation might deter investors from coming in full force.
