Of ISA's -1 + 2: Najib style...

Let it stands that when 1MPM6 is busy buying time by announcing the purported coming abolishment of ISA, DNightcaller is working on increasing the waistline with rendang Selangor, lemang Perak, Laksa Penang, keropok Terengganu, batang buruk Johor, dodol Melaka, nasi kerabu Kelantan, kek lapis Sarawak, terubuk masin Sabah etc. In short between Najib's "Thursday night live" and my "Duduk duduk sambil makan", DNightcaller comes up tops with better and truly Malaysian culture. Eat your heart out, Najib...

1MPM6 Najib, is that the best you can do? With all the hype and build-up complete with coralling 800 or as your "pak pacak", and you can only talk about repealling ISA? Aiyah! Malulah...

Going by Najib's track record, what he talked last night is already predictable. Since 2009, Najib proves that he is "lembik" with his ever "lallang" announcement and "give aways". When Palanivel takes over Samy and hinted Indians (which is actually MIC's stand which is actually his wish) shying away fom BN, Najib rewarded Palanivel with full minister and appointed Samy as Malaysia's special envoy to India with senior ministers ranking standing.

Now that Prof Kopi "O" Zainal comes up with his findings that Malaysia (or Malaya) was never colonised, how will Najib responded as he is the one who trumpeted "Don't change history" just days ago in Bukit Mertajam? So dear Najib, which is which? With the rate our leaders are re-defining Malaysian history, I think I am better in American history than Malaysian history...

Just the other day when slumping in Starbucks, this Chinese friend just returning from Macau was taken by surprise with "we were never colonised" statement. WeIlizabeth of UK when we use her face to decorate our stamps? Are we paying Elizabeth of UK patent rights when we use her face to decorate our stamps? Is Najib (or for that matter Mahathir) saying that we have already use APCO Britain way back in the 1940's or worse still since Francis Light era?

What Najib mentioned is actually what the rakyats have known all alone. In fact, the rakyat has abolish ISA in 2010 when they took the streets of KL denouncing ISA. So what Najib is doing is acknowledging the rakyat's demands. So dear Najib, are you going to backdate the announcement? If you do, will history be rewritten to accomodate you?

Unfortunately Najib's announcement is actually a non-announcement. Repealing 1 ISA law but introducing 2 new laws, is that the better solution? Why are we looking to UK and USA as reference point? Is Najib (and Hishamuddin) implying that we are going to have our own Guatanamo bay? If that is the case, then how can we say that these new laws will not be misused and abused? ISA has been abused before so will it be the same with these new lawsnother chocolate coating, perhaps?

With 800 audience before him, Najib fails to deliver anything sterling. What he did is doing what should be done ages ago and even that, it does not warrant the grand brouhaha on Malaysia day eve. Maybe the most Najib can hope for now is celebrating 16th September as the day ISA is officially abolish. Then again, how can you celebrate it when parliament has not approved it and YDP Agung has not inked it?

Najib can do much better if he used the opportunity last night to announced his separation from those who weighed him down beginning from RoseCTmah, Hishamuddin, Rais, Muhyiddin but Najib just do not have the guts to it. As said earlier, Najib is too "lembik" to be Malaysia's PM.

Saying so, if Najib is committed to BN he should use the opportunity last night to tender his resignation. If that had happened, then for once Najib would have upped Mahathir in dramatising his resignation. Najib way want to do that but RoseCTmah will not allow him and she may ise everything at her disposal ensuring Najib would not have uttered it. Who know, Najib may be implanted with cynide in his pinkies... anything is possible...

Whatever it is, wishing you all "Happy Malaysia day"... and enjoy your holiday. Me? I am already out of country looking for bread crumbs to continue living... heh heh heh just kidding

Till then...G'nite M'sia...wherever u are...

It is Bersih 2.0 that trigger the FEAR in BN. The bad handling of Bersih 2.0 really tarnish Putrajaya image. Bersih done a very good job, with multiple countries participating at once. We have not seen anything that is so wide spread internationally. Kudos Bersih 2.0!

The Rakyat start to realise after the SUCCESS of Bersih 2.0 and the Middlle East rising as a moral support of our cause. I am sure that "Mansuhkan ISA" rally will be next after Bersih 2.0. BN cannot afford another rally to further dampen BN popularity before GE 13th. It is a technical move from PM to cool us down.

Does it come with any sincerity?
