Letter to Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad

Salam Tun yang sangat dikasihi,

How are you and Toh Puan? And how is business at your bakery?

Okay, with the salutations and pleasantries over, please allow me to engage Tun in something I have long been yearning to propose to you, wakakaka.

Oh, by the way, please excuse kaytee's mild version of melatah-ing - call it Latah Lite if you wish, wakakaka again - sorry, you know how it is for people who melatah ;-).

I'm sure you will agree with me that we Malaysians* like to refer to important events by their dates in a 3-digit format, as I have written in my other blog KTemoc Kongsamkok several years ago in a post titled Secret Society of Handsome Chinese Cryptographers.

* yes, I know I know, you mentioned a couple of days ago that there will never be a true Malaysian. By the way Tun, have you read my post Should Chinese Malaysians adopt indigenous surnames?

Oh, and sorry about the title of the post Secret Society of Handsome Chinese Cryptographers especially the 'handsome' part as I know how much it irritates you to hear about Chinese implied indirectly and also incorrectly as being better looking than Malays. In fact, I have often heard from Chinese female friends how handsome, or in modern language what a hot looking stud, you are. And though I know you don't like (probably detest) Khairy Jamaluddin, he too has been described as another fine specimen of Malay manhood, in Chinese parlance, a leng chai.

But no doubt the word 'society of Chinese whatever' might have alarmed you, especially as I recall my uncle (one of your admirers) telling me that you once explained the necessity of Ops Lalang as (words to the effect) 'Chinese history has shown that it bodes no good when Chinese parties gather together at a temple to protest against the government'.

Needless to say, I was and still am amazed by your knowledge of Chinese history regarding the razing of Shaolin temple by the Manchus.

Yes, we all recall that on 11 October 1987, MCA, Gerakan, SUPP, DAP and other Chinese-based parties congregated together with Dong Jiao Zong at the Shaolin (sorry, wakakaka) Hainanese Association Building, beside the Thean Hou Temple in Kuala Lumpur, to protest against what they saw as the nasty policy of then-Education Minister Anwar Ibrahim.

It was a remarkable first and undoubtedly last for Chinese Malaysian Unity, wakakaka. Your Ops Lalang was certainly worthy of the brilliant Manchu attack on Shaolin Temple, and to your further credit you did it without burning any holy site.

But let us move on from Ops Lalang since both you and your once-protege, wakakaka, had already accepted responsibilities for your respective parts in the whole sorry affair.

Now, what do I mean by Malaysians like to refer to important events by their dates in a 3-digit format?

Virtually every adult in Malaysia knows or has heard of 513, the tragic day on 13 May 1969 when racial riots broke out in Selangor after the May 1969 general elections which saw Perikatan (headed by UMNO) lost its two-thirds majority in Parliament and also its hold on Selangor threatened.

Yes Tun, 513, a sad day for our nation but even sadder, still very much nourished, embellished and frequently referred to by, alas, your political party!

I don't propose to revisit that sad event as we have gone through it more often than any other Malaysian event, including even a fabricated fictionalized version in the film Tanda Putera, which was reviewed by the Malay Mail Online as a film that takes liberty with truth.

Then we have the infamous 916, wakakaka, which mention I am sure will warm the cockles of your heart - no no Tun, there is really no need to thank me.

But that many had even believed in the democratic correctness of 916 has been a sad reflection on the standard of mathematics taught in our Malaysian schools, where those people somehow reckoned that 82 > 140 (that is, 82 is greater than 140), wakakaka.

The American term for those incomprehensible believers and supporters of 916 is, I believe, 'mathematically challenged', a description which may also be applied today to someone in Selangor who in his own mind may contrive conclude that a coalition which holds 43 seats in a 56 seat state assembly would present for the state an unstable political deadlock which merits the dissolution of the DUN with fresh elections necessary.

But let us leave discussions of that issue for the future and move on to what I wish to propose to you.

It is about 929 and 617.

Didn't I mention that we Malaysians love such 3-digit codes - again  yes, I know I know, you mentioned a couple of days ago that there will never be a true Malaysian, but grant me a wee leeway in my, this post please, wakakaka.

As you mentioned on 14 February this year (2014) when you bravely accepted responsibility for Ops Lalang:

"Well, if I made a mistake, I made a mistake. I am an old man. I am 89 years old, so I am prone to forgetting."

"Even if the decision was made by someone else, it was in the Cabinet. I accept responsibility. We did what was needed to ensure peace and stability in Malaysia."

... yes, you are indeed already a most respected 89 years old so I hope you won't be annoyed if I respectfully remind you what 929 and 617 had been.

On 29 September 2001 (thus 929) you declared that 'Malaysia is an Islamic state' at the Gerakan national assembly on September 29 last year.

You were supported most ardently by both MCA and Gerakan leaders, who ironically (or with the advantage of hindsight, hypocritically) were at that time attacking/accusing the DAP for working 'hand-in-glove’ with PAS to establish an Islamic State, and who wakakaka had been asserting publicly that Malaysia was a secular and not an Islamic State.

But immediately after your 929 Declaration, your Chinese partners in BN, namely MCA and Gerakan leaders, gave their full and unequivocal support that compelled a blistering post by Lim Kit Siang against MCA and Gerakan volte-face, as follows (extract only):

"Malaysia had always been an Islamic state from day one of our nationhood 44 years ago as if the founding fathers and early leaders of MCA like Tun Tan Cheng Lock, Tun Tan Siew Sin, Tun S.H. Lee, Too Joon Hing or even the early UMNO leaders like Onn Jaffar, Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Razak and  Tun Hussein Onn would have agreed to multi-racial and multi-religious Malaysia becoming an Islamic State".

Lim Kit Siang also reminded us, no doubt totally flabbergasted by the MCA-Gerakan cari makan belakang pusing (wakakaka), that "For eight month after September 29 last year (2001),  MCA and Gerakan leaders were trumpeting that Malaysia is a moderate Islamic state", wakakaka, somehow showing they had been either devout Islamists or devout tok ampu's, wakakaka.

Then less than a year later, on 17 June 2002, you declared that Malaysia was not just an Islamic State and, with words to the effect (with a wee dram of my blogger's licence, wakakaka), to hell with the term moderate Islamic state (which of course pulled the rug from beneath MCA and Gerakan's feet) but that Malaysia was a fundamentalist Islamic State.

This declaration came to be known as 617, a declaration that your MCA and Gerakan tok ampu's were the first to endorse, despite your declaration moving Malaysia from being a moderate Islamic State to a fundamentalist versionAlamak and aiyoyo Tun, what motivation could be greater than the tok ampu's cari makan belakang pusing-an, wakakaka.

I would like, with Tun's indulgence, to quote from Lim Kit Siang's post in which he wrote:

Bapa Malaysia and the nation’s first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman confirmed this and declared in the Legislative Council in 1958:

“I would like to make it clear that this country is not an Islamic State as it is generally understood; we merely provide that Islam shall be the official religion of the State.”

The position of the constitutional cornerstone that Malaysia is a secular and not a Islamic state was further reinforced in the negotiations for the formation of Malaysia in 1963, as Sabahans and Sarawakians were assured that Article 3 of the Constitution "does not imply that Malaysia is not a secular state." (Cobbold Commission Report).

The fundamental constitutional principle that Malaysia is a secular nation has been upheld by the highest court in the land in Che Omar bin Che Soh vs Public Prosecutor (1988).

Delivering the judgment of a five-man Federal Court panel, the then Lord President Tun Salleh Abas held that the Constitution and the legal system are “secular” and held that the meaning of the expression “Islam” or “Islamic religion” in Article 3 “means only such acts as relate to rituals and ceremonies”.

He said that “There can be no doubt that Islam is not just a mere collection of dogmas and rituals but it is a complete way of life covering all fields of human activities, may they be private or public, legal, political, economic, social, cultural, moral or judicial” but rejected the contention that the terms “Islam” or “Islamic religion” in Article 3 is “an all-embracing concept, as is normally understood, which consists not only the ritualistic aspect but also a comprehensive system of life, including its jurisprudence and moral standard” as this was not the meaning intended by the framers of the Constitution.

Salleh Abas’ judgment that Malaysia was a secular nation was in keeping with the interpretation of his predecessor, the late Tun Mohamed Suffian Hashim who in 1962 defined the scope of Islam in the constitution as being primarily for ceremonial purposes, such as the permission for prayers to be offered in the Islamic way on official public occasions such as the installation of the Yang di Pertuan Agong, his birthday, Merdeka Day and other occasions.

Of course we knew why you proclaimed your fundamentalist Islamic state in the 929 and 617 Declarations, though then, you weren't able to see the Pandora Box you had opened with those declarations, particularly for your own UMNO ulama.

But look Tun, you have already won your battle with PAS and done you part even commendably unto accepting responsibilities for Ops Lalang. Why not take it from there and make another declaration, namely that you were mistaken about your politico-medical (wakakaka) 'interpretations' of our Constitution, and that we should adhere to the legal judgements on Malaysia as a secular state, as provided in the above-mentioned Cobbold Report and the rulings of Tun Mohamed Suffian Hashim and Tun Salleh Abas.

Pass on the baton of arguing over the Islamic State issue to your current and erstwhile proteges, wakakaka, and let them fight it out. At least it may possibly provide some amusement for you.

Incidentally, do you know that Tunku Abdul Aziz, a patrician I was formerly rather fond of (and still am to a certain extent despite his grievances with DAP) has also asserted our nation to be a secular state while he was lashing out at the Islamic Party's abandonment of Khalid Ibrahim. In an angry and disgusted rail against PAS he said:

Let me remind my co-religionists and all Malaysians that what they are seeing is not the teachings of the Quran: It is the work of people who have long abused their religion to promote their political ambitions and are prepared to traffic with any party of whatever political bent.I have never made a secret of my abhorrence and distaste for their brand of politics, with its evil concoction of pseudo-religious orthodoxy grounded in undisguised worldly opportunism. Surely, it can have no place in secular Malaysia.

Note my underlining and bolding of the relevant sentence above.

Continuing with Tunku Aziz's statement:

When I saw on television Mohamad Sabu reading the unholy announcement abandoning Khalid to the jackals, it dawned on me that perhaps this was God’s mysterious intervention to expose the truth about the party and its leaders. If this latest act of duplicity does not teach us anything about Pas’ politics of adventurism, then we will be putting the future of our nation at considerable risk.

Coincidentally, Raja Petra Kamaruddin had in his Malaysia-Today just written a rather amusing (or if you like,sarcastic) article about things happening being always acts of Allah swt, as in his post BLAME ALLAH FOR THE SELANGOR MB CRISIS in which he commented wryly on Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad's claim that 'Allah made the two PAS state assemblymen defy their own party by joining the 28 DAP and PKR representatives in pledging support for Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail because Allah wanted to save Selangor'.

Much as Tunku Aziz might have shown his disgust at PAS, he is undoubtedly a co-believer like Dr Dzulkefly in the all-powerful but mysterious interventions of Allah swt, a belief very much shared as well by devout Christians who would explain away, for example, the tragic disastrous aftermath of the Boxing Day Tsunami in which nearly half a million innocent God-fearing Indonesians perished, as God's mysterious ways. Amen.

Continuing with Tunku Aziz's statement:

For the sake of a united Malaysia, we cannot allow a religion-based political party that is causing unnecessary fear and apprehension among Malaysians to preach its sermon of hate and darkness. The party has to decide what it wants to be, a political organisation or a Muslim missionary society because it cannot be both.

It now operates under false pretences, and with its shrill campaign for a Muslim state, it is splitting the nation down the middle, a situation to be avoided at all costs as we strive to find our true destiny and identity as a nation.

We must not let Pas or anyone frustrate that national goal. Let all men and women of goodwill beware.

Well Tun, there you have it. Instead of blasting or tormenting poor Ah Jib Gor (does his Chinese nick, wakakaka, bother you?), why don't you stun Malaysia and the World again by declaring that your 929 and 617 Declarations were not legal but political constructs, designed to outflank PAS as advocated today by your fellow Kedahan, YM Tunku Abdul Aziz.

Yes, please do so and watch the fun begin as undoubtedly Najib and Anwar will amuse and entertain us as they tap-dance around the hot potato which you have baked for them, wakakaka.

I am,
Your obedient servant,

Kaytee Moc

P/S: Tun do you by any chance gift people with discount vouchers for purchase at The Loaf? Hint hint. Terimakasih Tun in anticipation.

Bloody God-less Chinese Communists

Today RPK posted a new piece titled BLAME ALLAH FOR THE SELANGOR MB CRISIS in response to Dr Dzulkefly's comment about the two PAS ADUN who broke ranks with PAS to support Dr Wan even before the PAS council meeting had taken place on Sunday 17 August. He wrote, undoubtedly in sarcastic mode:

PAS leader Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad said that Allah made the two PAS state assemblymen defy their own party by joining the 28 DAP and PKR representatives in pledging support for Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail because Allah wanted to save Selangor.

That is actually a most interesting prognosis and I must confess I did not see it that way. I suppose I have forgotten my religious class lessons where we learned that nothing happens, either good or bad, unless Allah wills it.

I am glad that Dr Dzul reminded us because I have to admit that since I have been staying here in the UK these last five years I have been missing those religious sermons that I used to attend quite frequently when I was back in Malaysia.

I remember now Tok Guru Abdul Rahman Petani telling me that we can only plan but Allah decides. Hence we have to accept whatever happens, both good and bad. And that is why Muslims are forbidden from wailing during funerals because death is Allah’s will.

You can read the rest of his post yourself, but here in my post I wish to extract a few (unedited) comments from RPK's post as well as my morning-nothing-to-do-in-office-lah responses, wakakaka. Here goes:

(1) by OzRi UzNa:

Majority of Chinese people do not believe that God exists and even Adam and Eve though they believe does not exist at all... Majority of Chinese are all RACISTS, which they do deep down prefer their own RACE to succeed even at cost of another RACE.. And they are selfish,racist, greedy and spiteful people. I believe this comes about as they have a sense of entitlement, that they are better than other people but they have no responsibility towards other ,people in their own communities or abroad. Children are taught not to care about others strangers especially someone from a different races and so on.

My responses (in 2 parts, the latter on realizing an oversight in the former, wakakaka):

poster above made for kaytee, wakakaka

(i) OsRi UzNa, it may well be that some or even many Chinese Malaysians are racists but to assert they don't believe God exists is based on nothing more than your ignorance, sheer utter ignorance. Most Chinese believe in God (Christians, Muslims and Bahais) or gods (the non-Christians, non-Muslims and non-Bahais).

Few would be those Chinese Malaysians who are atheists, very few indeed - incidentally I'm am one, wakakaka. Even most of Chinese Buddhists have conflated their religion with Chinese folk religions and so believe in God known as Thean Gong (God of Heaven, sometimes the Jade Emperor).

As for another of your ignorant assertions, namely "Majority of Chinese are all RACISTS, which they do deep down prefer their own RACE to succeed even at cost of another RACE", I have no issue with the former, that most Chinese are racists (in fact, most Malaysians are racist, including and especially Indians and Malays), but I disagree with your ill-informed and very ignorant belief that "they ..... prefer their own RACE to succeed even at cost of another RACE". The truth is no one is more dangerous and harmful to a Chinese Malaysian than another Chinese Malaysian, wakakaka, because I suspect those involved in such disgraceful backstabbing would be those fighting for crumbs, the 0.23Malaysian crumbs, wakakaka.

(ii) Oh OsRi UzNa, sorry I missed out Adam and Eve in my comment above. Adam and Eve only exist in the Abrahamic religions and not in Hinduism, Buddhism, and other non-Abrahamic religions - in fact, in the Abrahamic religions especially Judaism there was a third person, namely Lilith who was Adam's first wife - you should be ashamed for leaving her out of your mention.

BTW, I have always believed that God made a mistake in making Adam and Eve Hebrews, leading us since to suffer forever from the fallout of their original sin. Had God made Adam and Eve Chinese (even racist ones, wakakaka0 then we would have been spared that 'original sin', for they would have ignored the apple (or fig) and ate the snake instead, wakakaka. No snake, no Iblis (Satan) thus no sin, wakakaka.

And to be fair to OsRi UsNa he replied:

Kaytee Moc Confucius is deeply influential on the majority people of Chinese more than Buddhism, Taiosm and also an Atheists who doesn't believe in existence of God including Adam and Eve. I know about existence of Lilith a female demon. Lilith as Adam's first wife is a medieval Jewish folklore in other words myth. Bear in your mind Supreme being, He makes no mistakes! You wrote: "The truth is no one is more dangerous and harmful to a Chinese Malaysian than another Chinese Malaysian,.." It's TRUE except national unity of the Chinese (Nationalism).

... which encouraged me to reply:

OsRi UzNa Indeed Confucius has a deep influence on Chinese attitude, in the Sage's teaching and reasoning for 'order' in society where the King, Elders and seniors in royalty, society and family must be respected and not only that, shown to be respected whence then there will be order and harmony. Also, Confucianism has been about cultivating, practicing and promoting the 8 virtues of benevolence, righteousness, courtesy, wisdom, fidelity, loyalty, filial piety and service to elders.

On this score, Chinese Confucians would be the most devout monarchists, which has been why China has an unbroken line of dynasties including the current communist dynasty, wakakaka. 

But more importantly Confucianism, unlike the very tribal Abrahamic religions, does NOT interfere with an individual's religious belief, which was/is why among the Chinese, Confucianism, Buddhism, Taoism and folk religions exist side by side for several thousands of years. Only in Christianity and Islam in China were their followers taught to be intolerant of other religions.

What Chinese nationalism would you be talking about when even China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore can't even agree among themselves, let alone Chinese Malaysians.

(2) by Rama Chandran Muniand:

The Chinese have a master plan to takeover Putrajaya. But the Malays are not bothered to be used like Anwar and Mat Sabu! This is seen clearly, they rather listen happily Chinese and a few idiotic Indians shouting and condemning the Malay Royalties! They are. Power crazy ! Parties like DAP have a alterior motives! One puppet Malay will be a PM and a Chinese either LGE or LKS will be Deputy PM with an important portfolio to screw up the country! The puppet Malay will be Anwar or Wan Azizah ! Tun Mahathir said these so call Malay opposition parties are selling the Malay Rights! That's 100% true!

My response:

Damn it, those Chinese are taking too long (57 years) to dominate Malaysia, wakakaka. Pathetic lah. By the time they ever succeed, all of us (Mahathir, Anwar, Najib, Lim KS/GE, Khalid Ibrahim, Tok Haji Hadi Awang, and even young Khairy, Mukhriz, Dyana Sofya, and Mahathir's grandchildren) will be long gone.

(3) Kamarulzaman Kamaruddin wrote:

Chinese conspiring to remove Sultan? If these are true... mmmm..... do not know what to say.

I'm sure I responded but couldn't find it again in RPK's post. Never mind, if my recall is good, this was (as near as I remember) what I had written:

In Tunku's and Razak's days, all Chinese Malaysians were communists or potential communists or communist sympathizers. There was one behind every bunga raya bush.

Malaysia's My Lai - Batang Kali

Scots Guards massacred 24 innocent unarmed Chinese
and burned their village

Today, with communism all but extinct except in Cuba, all Chinese Malaysians are anti-royalty republicans or potential anti-royalty republicans or anti-royalty republican sympathizers. There is one behind every durian tree, wakakaka.

It's quite a revelation of what socio-emotional feelings some Malaysians have.

The 10-Day Wait

Interesting times.

A week in politics is a long time, and 10 days would be an eternity.

So we have to wait until 27 August 2014 to see whether Pakatan's nomination of the new MB (doesn't matter whether it's Dr Wan or Azmin Ali or whoever) will be approved by HRH or instead the DUN will be dissolved with a fresh state election called, even though Pakatan has an overwhelming majority of 43 ADUNs in comparison to BN''s 12 and one independent, a situation which doesn't merit the dissolution of the DUN.

The last part will be the more interesting part of the wait, and not who will be the new MB.

But one wonders why or how a legal-procedural situation such as the current one in Selangor could occur or be allowed to occur, where important decisions such as replacing a MB (or CM or PM) so as to enable a mandated government to continue running, have to wait for as long as 10 days in order for HRH (or HM or a YDN) to say yes?

In virtually every organization or ministry, there is an acting head when the official head is away, so as to ensure such important or critical decisions may be made.

Isn't there such an office in Selangor as acting ruler or regent when a ruler is away or indisposed? Sometimes a council appointed by the ruler could also act in the capacity of regent should the ruler's heir be too young.

Take the case of the Terengganu Sultanate - from Wikipedia we learn:

After Sultan Mizan was elected as Yang di-Pertuan Agong, he appointed Tengku Muhammad Ismail, then aged eight, as Regent on 12 November 2006. Because of Tengku Muhammad Ismail's young age, a Regency Advisory Council was established to discharge his duties for him. The council's members were Raja Tengku Baderulzaman, Sultan Mizan's younger brother, Raja Tengku Sulaiman Sultan Ismail, Sultan Mizan's uncle, and Federal Court judge Abdul Kadir Sulaiman. He was proclaimed as regent during a ceremony on 12 December.

As regent, he presided over the swearing in of Menteri Besar Ahmad Said following the 2008 general election.

I also recall that when the former (now late) Sultan of Perak (allahyarham Raja Azlan Shah) was ill and convalescing, his son then only the Raja Muda (now HRH Raja Nazrin Shah, Sultan of Perak) performed the state's royal duties not as the Raja Muda but as the Regent of Perak, basically with powers of the Sultan.

In an earlier period, from 1989 to 1994, when his father reigned as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Raja Nazrin Shah was also appointed the Regent of Perak.

I raise this query not so much about the current MB situation in Selangor but more in general terms, because the lack of an acting ruler (regent) is an observable weakness in organizational contingency.

Proud to be Malaysians?

In the meanwhile, as we wait for PAS' earth shaking decision ........ wakakaka, read this.

So our dear Police sees fit to probe a student for sedition because the lad's Facebook has a 'like' for an 'I love Israel' page?

So back in 2008 our dear Police saw fit to detain under the ISA:

(a) a Sin Chew journalist Tan Hoon Cheng for reporting on Bukit Bendera division Umno chief Ahmad Ismail's racist remarks while campaigning for the Permatang Pauh by-election, while the racist was not, and

what a sweetie

(b) a MP for Seputih, YB Teresa Kok, [yes, she's a Member of Parliament, still is] for what we by-now know to be a false allegation against her about a mosque's azan, ... 

another sweetie hottie, yum

... er ... just for their 'protection'?

You think they're stupid?

Be thankful you're Malaysian and our Malaysian Police is only half stupid, wakakaka.

Imagine if you were Pakistani in Pakistan where a 9-month toddler could be charged for murder - for more see my BolehTalk post Pakistani Police pressed murder charges against a 9-month old baby.

Wakakaka, but dinna fret, soon our remarkable Police may reach that Pakistani standard.

3 months in politics an eternity

Now it's mid August. Khalid Ibrahim still refuses to go even in the face of a very clear majority against him. He resorts to shameful name dropping, as if that will excuse his personal lack of political propriety and honour.

The next DUN assembly is scheduled for November, approximately 3 months to go. Khalid knows he will by then be definitely ousted for good, regardless of whether there is a fresh election after the DUN is dissolved by HRH on his advice, probably his scorched earth legacy as an alternative to being allowed to hang on.

sheltering under a payung

To hang on!!!

Dissolving the DUN for a fresh state election scares the shits out of PAS, which may be why they're playing footsie-tootsie with Khalid. But it's a making of their own prejudice and lack of sincere commitment to Pakatan after all their mealy-mouth promises (now recognized at best as mere empty boasts, and at worst, treachery).

Thus we have PAS non-dead quartet still in the exco, after all 6 PKR and DAP exco members have all been sacked, and thus unlike the undead PAS quartet, very dead, exco-wise.

Why is Khalid hanging on for 3 more months?

Hanging on!!!

More importantly, will he be able to? Hang on, that is!

What's up?

[Note: I will not post any libellous comments, wakakaka]

One man in Selangor

PAS Quartet say: We may stay on in Selangor till GE14

One man has caused so much damage to Pakatan.

One man has caused so much damage to Pakatan because another one man gave him expressed support, against Pakatan consensus.

One man believed him even when the one man did not have majority support.

One man's greed was the root cause leading to one man becoming a maverick renegade causing so much trouble to Pakatan.

One man's pampering of the greedy one man added to the problem of one man causing so much trouble for Pakatan, abetted by one man who couldn't stick by Pakatan coalition agreement.

One man!

One man against 30 or even 43, does the one man care?


One man is depending on one man to save him. The Malay Mail Online reports in Sultan has final say in MB crisis, Khalid says:

Khalid, who was responding to claims that he no longer commands the confidence of the state assembly, said that nothing can take place until and unless the state ruler is formally informed of the situation.

“The process of what happens depends on the consent and discretion of His Highness the Sultan,” Khalid told reporters when met at the Shah Alam mosque here.

When asked whether this includes the option of dissolving the state assembly, the Port Klang assemblyman said “everything.”

“That will have to be discussed with the Sultan,” he added, referring to calls by PKR and DAP for an emergency state assembly sitting to be held to discuss his position as mentri besar.

Khalid also denied allegations that he was deliberately clinging on to his post until November’s Selangor budget sitting.

Retorting to Lim Kit Siang who told the one man to resign for misleading HRH, one man arrogantly replied Write to ruler for explanation, MB tells critics.

Malaysiakini reported: Selangor Menteri Besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim urged those accusing him of misleading the state’s sultan to write to ruler himself for an explanation.

“In addition, the sultan has decreed that I do not make any decision or announcement on the position of menteri besar until his majesty returns on Aug 27 for me to have an audience with him,” said Khalid in a statement today.

Now, only one man can save him.

Will one man?

One man has caused so much damage to Pakatan that Pakatan will never recover to its 2013 glory.

All because of just one man, one man, one man, one man and one man.

Intolerable by the hour

TMI - You may have the numbers but I’m still MB, Khalid tells Wan Azizah

Khalid Ibrahim had informed HRH he has majority support in the Selangor DUN yet he now openly admits he doesn't have the numbers but insists on continuing on as MB. So what disrespect had he committed against HRH?

What a rogue - and I have to partially blame PKR for a number of issues leading to a once-respected man becoming so brazen, undignified and a pathetic rogue, probably the most despised politician in Malaysian history for his disgusting shamelessness.

Dr Wan indeed does have the numbers despite the foot-dragging prevaricating tap-dancing PAS which wants the cake as well as to eat it.

Two of PAS ADUN, Saari Sungib (Hulu Kelang) and his colleague, Hasnul Bahruddin (Morib) have both voiced publicly their support of Dr Wan - for more see TMI's You can sack us for backing Wan Azizah, say PAS duo to party.

Saari summed it brilliantly when he said "Khalid Ibrahim's behaviour was intolerable by the hour", encapsulating everything wrong about Khalid's shameless arrogant and dictatorial behaviour, ...

... not only in refusing to vacate the MB seat after PKR expelled him from his erstwhile party, but in arbitrarily sacking PKR and DAP ADUNs as well as threatening to sack all PKR and DAP local councillors in Selangor.

And such has been the disgusting shamelessness of a man who refused to see the writing on the wall, so much so that his intolerant behaviour has driven two PAS ADUNs to buck their party even at the cost of their expulsion from their party.

thick hide rogue buffalo

heard of one sighted  recently in Selangor

If PAS doesn't want them for contravening party stand on supporting Khalid Ibrahim, I strongly recommend that DAP accepts them as party members.

The Pakatan agreement not to accept another party's ex-members has now become void by virtue of PAS' lack of virtue towards Pakatan consensus to dismiss Khalid Ibrahim as MB.

Saari Sungib and his colleague have shown their political and moral values by making a brave stand against PAS' shameless slutty coyishness with a renegade, a rogue who has been given almost unfettered imprimatur to run the state like a dictator

And Khalid has the shameless thick hide to hypocritically talk about hanging on as MB to protect the interests of the people of Selangor but forgetting that the people had voted for PKR and DAP in order for a Pakatan government to come into rule.

By his erratic behaviour he has become a virtual dictator, sacking his former Pakatan colleagues left, right and centre, forgetting that the people had voted for a Pakatan government in Selangor, not a Khalid Ibrahim government supported by UMNO.

Ignoring the pending PAS majlis on 17 August, Dr Wan already has 30 ADUNs behind her, and that's a neat and comfy majority in the Selangor DUN of 56.

But Khalid Ibrahim continues to arrogantly ignore all the niceties of Westminster democracy, or even basic indicators of the Malaysian version, saying unbelievably to Dr Wan that she may have the numbers but he's still MB presumably because he believes he has the unreserved backing of HRH.

sincerely hope that HRH as the state constitutional head, the symbol of unity for the people, and also the impartial arbitrator [Daulat Tuanku] will now take cognizant of the very obvious majority support for Dr Wan (or an alternative PKR candidate) and the corresponding lack of in Khalid Ibrahim's case.

Recently I quoted TMI's journalist Tunku Abidin Muhriz in one of his his articles in TMI. He had written poignantly to ask whether we were going to only remember Allahyarham Tuanku Raja Azlan Muhibbuddin Shah against one incident, that sad state constitutional crisis, and completely ignored or dismissed Allahyarham HRH's life long achievements?

I fear the answer to that as Malaysians only remember the bad about someone, and very seldom the good, or as Malays would say: "Kerana nila setitik, rosak susu sebelanga".

We must not allowed this sad emotional response to ever occur in Selangor. Daulat Tuanku.

The champion buffalo

yo, right up to my f**king neck in water


I am the rogue, the outcast, a pariah
Living in the shade of a yellow brolly
My personal position in straits dire
Due to my pathetic pompous hubris

In truth I am greatest, the mostest

Tho' thick skin like a water buffalo
No one can be like me the smartest
With a brain like an overripe pomelo

I can knock down friends and foes

Sting them like venomous scorpion
Knock them for six like dominoes
I am no less a right royal champion

Splish splash, we kerbau love water

Wallowing in muddy cesspool bath
Tho' you may find such filth a horror
We luxuriate in such a decadent path

Moo moo moo moo moo moolah
Wakakaka wakakaka wakakaka

Bitter Bismarck Bites


Malaysiakini - PAS rep urges party to join Pakatan against MB

A Selangor PAS elected representative tonight became the first of the 15 in the party to take a stand against Selangor Menteri Besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

Hulu Kelang assemblyperson Saari Sungib, however, stressed that the stand he is taking is to “side with Pakatan Rakyat”.

“Two (out of three) Pakatan parties have taken a stand to reject Khalid. I feel that this is a reasonable stand to take and PAS should take the same stand,” Saari told Malaysiakini.

He also urged PAS leaders to swiftly make a decision on the matter and not wait until the central committee meeting on Aug 17, so as to save the Pakatan Rakyat Selangor government.

Saari said the matter must be dealt with on an urgent basis, especially after Khalid’s “brash” move of sacking the six PKR and DAP members on the state executive council.


Great news.

Interim MB has just sacked all 6 exco members from DAP and PKR.

Presumably he believes he can run the state with the remaining 4 exco members from PAS in a "National Consensus" state government comprising Khalid himself, 12 UMNO Aduns and the 15 PAS Aduns who we have been informed, MUST all abide by the PAS Shura Council's decision to back Khalid. Jawohl!

Whether Khalid possesses the legal and moral rights to sack exco members from PKR and DAP en bloc doesn't matter as he claimed he has HRH's approval, as reported by The Malay Mail Online.

For more, see TMI's Pakatan loses Selangor government as Khalid sacks PKR, DAP excos.

It also doesn't matter whether HRH is now cognizant of the fact that 13 PKR and 15 DAP Aduns (comprising 50% of the Selangor DUN) are against Khalid continuing as MB, putting lie to Khalid's claim of majority support for him.

Royal Grand Vizier, wakakaka

It doesn't matter because from such tactical adversity will come greater clarity of who's friend or foe and thus better direction for Pakatan's future.

It's also great news because, unless PAS informs Pakatan otherwise of where their support lies, and pretty pronto too, we must deem them as having switch alliance and are now part of the UMNO bloc.

Syabas to PAS - we can only be thankful you have shown your true colours and hitherto-concealed fangs. Personally I have never been comfy with them, mainly because of their hudud-obsession, misogyny and belakang pusing from Pakatan consensus.

Wait, there's additional good news from constitution experts Dr Abdul Aziz Bari and Universiti Malaya law professor Gurdial Singh Nijar, who both agreed that unlike the case for the Australian Speaker, Selangor's Speaker can vote.

Prof Gurdial said Article 71(1)(b) of the Selangor Constitution implies that the speaker can vote because: "It says that a non-state assemblyperson can be appointed a speaker of the assembly but then such a person cannot vote on any matter before the assembly."

"This suggests that if the speaker is a state assemblyperson, then the speaker can vote."

dear dear dearest sweetie Hannah,
your exponentially increased powers as House Speaker
is going to upset someone, and I don't mean Khalid, wakakaka

Better still, Dr Bari said: "... ultimately the speaker has the final say in interpreting the rules on the state assembly as the courts are not allowed to interfere."

"No court can review or substitute the state assembly speaker's decision or ruling. This underlines the position of the House within the doctrine of separation of powers."


But now, get this - with Hannah Teoh and deputy speaker Nik Nazmi both voting together with the rest of the PKR and DAP Aduns, that will make a total of 28 against Khalid's faction of 28 ...

... BUT BUT BUT ... Hannah Yeoh as the Speaker of the House can cast an additional decisive vote in a deadlock (of 28 versus 28) to make it 29 against Khalid's 28, a probability I had mulled over in an earlier post Helping Khalid Ibrahim stay on as MB Selangor.

Of course, in the end HRH will have the final say, and with his royal prerogative he can say just anything! Daulat Tuanku!
