Some odds and ends:
- In his address in Parliament, Lim Guan Eng slams Maybank’s controversial RM8.5 billion acquisition of an Indonesian bank from Singapore’s Temasek Holdings (see video clip above);
- Farish Noor cautions democratic-minded politicians of the potential shortcomings in a democratic system, under which even exclusivist groups will want their demands accommodated and met. See Politics and posturing;
- And it’s always interesting to hear how “the other side” tries to justify the ISA: Lee Hsien Loong addresses the Singapore Internal Security Department during its 60th anniversary dinner here.
