khir toyo interview 121207 look

I just read this article at Malaysiakini by Andrew Ong about an interview with former MB of Selangor Khir Toyo and I couldn’t help but laugh at what was quoted. He said, “Our zero squatters policy was the best in the world. Many foreign governments had sought my help in order to emulate a similar system in their respective countries.” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! BEST IN THE WORLD?
I seriously cannot believe he meant that. I mean unless he thinks we’re in a vacuum sealed country with no contact to the rest of the world. How can he validate that claim??? I heard so much unbelievable statements coming out of the mouths of our “leaders” in this country that I don’t bother to pay attention anymore. I’m no longer shocked or angry at them for making us the RAKYAT seem like fools to have this kind of crap shove down our throats, instead I am tickled pink with uncontrollable burst of LAUGHTER seeing them making a fool of themselves in the media everyday. Keep the jokes coming man! I look forward to the next dose of “laughing gas” Picture taken from

It seems Malaysiakini are still having traffic problems, will we see a drop in traffic once the post election fever cools down? I doubt it. I believe Malaysiakini has firmly established it’s credo. I was impresssed with their work especially during the polling day minute by minute update. I stayed up till 4AM that day to get the latest results.

Half Baked Apology From Former Menteri Besar Terengganu

I read this article in Malaysiakini

Idris apologises to sultan
Beh Lih Yi | Mar 25, 08 3:59pm

Former Terengganu menteri besar Idris Jusoh has sought the forgiveness of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin – who is also Sultan of Terengganu – over matters which had incurred the ruler’s wrath.

idris jusoh pc 250308 04“As a Muslim, I made mistakes. It’s only human to make mistakes. I am willing to apologise for my mistakes,” he told a press conference held at a hotel in Subang this afternoon.

Idris – the Barisan Nasional-backed candidate for the MB post in an ongoing tussle between the palace and government – said he tendered an apology to Tuanku Mizan during an audience with the King on Feb 23.

“During the audience with the King, I have explained that as a state leader, I made mistakes and I tendered my apology,” he revealed.

However, he refused to elaborate on the grounds of his apology and declined to comment on whether the palace was unhappy over his handling of the Batu Burok and Rusila incidents in the state.

“It’s a general apology. Muslims always ask for forgiveness when we meet,” he said when pressed by reporters on the matter.”

Don’t get me wrong, apologizing for your mistakes are a good and fine but refusing to state your grounds for the apology in my humble opinion seems mighty insincere. And to say that the appointment of Ahmad Said by the Sultan of Terengganu as “unlawful” further underlines his true agenda which is not an apology but a protest, only it’s a gift-wrapped protest.
