Lessons Of The PKR Debacle

Lessons of the PKR Debacle (Tweets by Sarawak Headhunter): 

1. Practise what you preach. If you don't, your hypocrisy will be on show. If you can't, stop preaching. 

2. Don't talk about reform if you can't reform yourself first. 

3. What you require of others, expect others to require of you. 

4. Don't pretend to be a saint if you are not. You will be found wanting when called to account. 

5. Pretending all is well when it isn't is a sign of self-delusion attempting to perform mass delusion. 

6. What applies to UMNO/BN also applies to PKR/Pakatan & vice versa. The truth will always prevail, inspite of us. 

7. Hidden agendas have a way of making themselves known the more they are hidden. 

8. In Age of Internet shutting people up is an impossible & futile task, only thing to do is face not evade issues.

Special Meeting Of Pastors & Church Leaders, Miri 15-11-2010

To All concerned Christians,

This Councillor Dennis Ngau Jok (younger brother of former SIB President Jok Wan) Telang Usan PBB Youth Chief is organising a special meeting of Pastors and Church leaders on Monday next week ie 15.11.2010 in Miri and Dennis is inviting the womaniser who is also SUPP's useless President George Chan to attend the meeting. 

George Chan & his latest 'Toy' an Orang Ulu lady. What happened to his Chinese 2nd wife the organist?

Will our men of God our shepherds ie our pastors and church leaders stand up firmly against the evils of BN! BN banned our importation of our bibles from Indonesia, banned our use of Allah, BN took our NCR lands etc NOW BN WANTS TO USE OUR PASTORS AND CHURCH LEADERS! Don't you think this is a humiliation and a disgrace to our God! 

Dennis's own Long Bedian SIB Church and longhouse is split bcos of his and Lihan Jok's BN/PBB politics,  so what role model is he and George Chan?! Please pass this on. Call our SIB President on this and most important of all, pray to our Almighty God for our guidance and protection in all this development.

Launch Of BERSIH 2.0


We, the BERSIH 2.0 steering committee, invite your organisation to join and unite with us to advance clean and fair elections in Malaysia. Much still needs to be done and Bersih 2.0 needs your support and help to make the mission come true for a democratic Malaysia.

BERSIH 2.0 believes that it is only when elections are clean and fair, can citizens determine their own destiny and expect holders of public office to act accountably and effectively. The road to electoral reform is part and parcel of the democratic process to put into place the rule of law, human rights protection, good governance and sustainable development in Malaysia. As citizens we can make this our reality.

The key issues of electoral reform include:

1. A complete revision of the electoral roll to ensure that the existing irregularities are removed and a roll with full integrity is in place.
2. The use of indelible ink (as is done in Indonesia and India) to prevent multiple voting.
3. The reform of postal voting to abolish the existing separate electoral roll for postal voters and to make it flexible for all voters, at home or abroad, with valid reasons to opt for postal voting.
4. Free and fair media access for all contesting parties, which should include: (a) free access to state-owned media especially television and radio; (b) fair paid access (political advertisement) to private media; and (c) provision of the right of reply for all contesting parties and personalities who are covered negatively in news reports.
5. A meaningful minimum campaign period of 21 days.
6. Fair and professional practices in constituency redelineation exercises to minimise malapportionment, gerrymandering and consequent disproportionality in seats and votes.
7. Automatic registration of all eligible voters.
8. Reduction of the voting eligibility age from 21 to 18 years old.
9. Reform in electoral financing to ensure transparency and limit the influence of money politics.
10. Administrative neutrality of all levels of governments before, during and after general and by-elections for the federal and state legislatures.
11. Affirming the right of all students of 18 years and above, to participate in politics inside and outside campus.

Bersih 2.0, whilst acknowledging the importance of the reform agenda of Bersih, is now relaunched as a fully non-partisan coalition of civil society groups. It is a movement of ordinary citizens asserting the right of all, to clean and fair elections as guaranteed by law. We must ensure our votes and voices count.

We, therefore, warmly invite you and your organisations to join us and extend your full support to ensure that the next election and future ones will be clean, fair and democratic.

The details of the launch are as follows:
Date: 10 November 2010 (Wednesday)
Time: 8.30 p.m. – 10.30 p.m.
Venue: PJ Civic Hall, Jalan Yong Shook Lin, Petaling Jaya.

Yours sincerely,
Dato’ Ambiga Sreenevasan

Dato’ Ambiga Sreenevasan, (Chairperson), Andrew Khoo, Arumugam K., Dr Farouk Musa, Haris Ibrahim, Liau Koh Fah, Maria Chin Abdullah, Richard Y W Yeoh, Dr Toh Kin Woon, Dr Wong Chin Huat, Yeoh Yang Poh and Zaid Kamaruddin.

The Sarawak Headhunter's Curse Be Upon Anwar & Azmin

The Sarawak Headhunter's Curse be upon Anwar and Azmin - May they never make it to Putrajaya!

Nov 8, 2010

Category: Press Release

I wish to announce my withdrawal as a candidate from the contest of Deputy President of Parti Keadilan Rakyat and my resignation from all posts held in the party.

I was offered to join this party under the belief that I could promote enlightened and progressive politics; nurture and develop principled political values and culture that I consider indispensable to the development of democracy and good governance in this country. I was mistaken.

Over the course of the party elections, events have shown that the leadership actively condones malpractices and electoral fraud to achieve its designed objectives. I am certain that any political party with such hypocritical and false values will not be able to offer meaningful reforms to the people of this country.

I have made this decision because there is no attempt on the part of the party leadership to address the various issues of manipulation and unfair electoral practices, although these issues were raised repeatedly.

I wish to thank all the members who have supported me and placed their faith in the cause of reform. It is of utmost disappointment that I am unable to continue in this flawed election process. I remain committed to the Opposition’s cause and will continue to speak about the issues of the common people. Together, we will continue our unabated struggle towards a better government for the people.

Finally, I hope those adoring fans of Anwar Ibrahim will no longer regard me as a “spoiler” standing in the way of their march to Putrajaya. I wish them well.
