The latest alarm bell is the drop of five places to 62nd out of 180 countries in Transparency International’s perceptions ranking of the cleanest nations based on their corruption perceptions index scores.

This rot did not take place overnight. It is something that has been growing over the years – no, decades. Full article on Aliran website

Malaysians must wake up to the fact that any “charity” managed or sponsored by despicable breed of politicians and their wives is really [questionable]

Reply to – “FangCao / Reply to  Silverberg / 3 Feb 2022 2.27pm” WARISAN NOW IN PENINSULA / by LIEW JIA XIAN / Saturday, 18 Dec 2021 Parti Warisan Sabah’s decision to spread its wings to Peninsular Malaysia will provide a platform for multiracial and inclusive politics, said party president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal. “We must have the will, but will and desire cannot be realised and be a success without proper planning.” “We will provide the platform for our vision of multiculturalism and unity.” “Our leaders must have good values, be on the right path, and have the right… Read more »

Warisan got no ***** to contest in Malay majority seats in Peninsular. It can only recruit disgruntled has-been politicians like Jeff Ooi. What values can they talk about? Warisan will follow the path of Gerakan into oblivion.

Susanna Liew has asked again for the special task force report on the disappearance of her husband Pastor Raymond Koh who went missing five years ago.

Liew said it has been three years since the task force had completed the report, which has yet to be made public.

RAMASAMY : IF UMNO WINS BIG IN JOHOR, IT WILL FORCE GE NEXT / Feb 1, 2022 9:31 AM

“He said …….. earlier by-elections have given confidence to Umno that the corruption-tainted party can go it alone….. ”

https://www.malaysiakini.com/news/609151

========

Now, now, Prof. Ramasamy, ain’t that the ” POT TELLING THE KETTLE ITS BLACK”. Is DAP free of any corruption case court cluster?…

FangCao

Get your facts right. The court has already found Najib guilty….

Omega 88

And yet your ‘Puritan’ nation Singapore found it alright and acceptable to allow him to enter its incorruptible nation for visits and also play golf on its soil. So, What corrupt ,
What guilty ? What facts ?

shriek

Alpha, show us in which Sink apor laws, those have records are not allowed into the island? There are those with records want to start life again travel overseas to the island to cari Sing $$. Same as here. .

Omega 88

You are an ardent admirer and a devoted follower (along with your co hoots) of anything S’pore besides Macau and HK, going your by previous comments. You look down upon this nation. Are you now saying that those nations are not what you made them out to be. A change of mind, perhaps.

shriek

Tell us what you look up and proud and make us change of mind. Otherwise you are just spinning to make you feel shiosk and hollow in convincing us.Like Winter Games, you learnt and admire those with low scores? You are willing to pay for those not giving you the service? Your motto, customers are always wrong?

shriek

Omega, Our next door neighbour Thai land is going to buy F35 steath figher
Thailand purchase of F-35 stealth jets depends on U.S. government, says Lockheed Martin exec (yahoo.com)

Malaysia can only buy masak masak and model radio control plane. You must be very proud on our ability and capacabilty? Malaysia boleh.

Alpha 88

Hallo shriek, why did you bring up this issue? What are this people going to do with stealth fighter jets? Ah still have no idea why the deputy minister fumed in parliament back in 2013.

Space plan ‘not useless’, fumes deputy minister

shriek

I thought you feel the and your Tai Lo running the country is superb and world class? You better go for PHD check up. You talkabout space and Thailand knows that fighter jets are not for defence and not space travel

Najib Razak, a boon or bane for BN in Johor?

https://www.themalaysianinsight.com/s/368381

What say you, Mr Anil?

Silverberg

Maybe his “Cash is King” and “I help you, you help me” mantra can still resonate with those who wish to gain dedak once Bossku is back as PM?

Silverberg

MCA at Perling, Johor is riding high on Bossku aura (Kemaluan Negara) to beat Liew Chin Tong in the state election?

shriek

Every [alleged] corruption must be DAP and opposition. Why not you to blame the Country slide and most corrupted is due to DAP? Tell us they are not holding any position or $$$ how to corrupt? …

Omega 88

Ah am flabbergasted. What are you are saying now, O senior shriek, born of late fifties. Is it true, are they what you alleged they are? Again, perhaps a change of mind on your part.

shriek

How many times I have been telling I am much younger and do not spin like using Alpha aka Omega and the 88s gang.

Silverberg

Shriek

You may have to “sumpah” just like our politicians to prove your point?

Alpha 88

Its alright, shriek can be any age he wants. He can be
young, much younger or old, much older, heck he can even be a immortal as long as it makes him happy. No need to take a oath.

shriek

Why you must tell us your are 85 years old? No need sumpah. Heck, you may not be telling us the truth. Shiok sendiri?

CORRUPTION IN MALAYSIA
————————————–

“Speech by DAP Member of Parliament for Bandar Melaka, Mr. Lim Kit Siang, in July 26, 1971”

https://bibliotheca.limkitsiang.com/1971/07/26/corruption-in-malaysia/

========

This speech took place in Parliament in 1971. If one reads his speech, one would think he is describing about the corruption situation in the twenties of 21st century. But the speech was read
a good 50 plus years ago describing the corruption situation back then.

And that boys, is 50 plus years of no change on corruption. And he also talks about corrupt froggies switching political parties. Its like we are frozen in time.

Warisan and Parti Bangsa Malaysia are making inroad to Penang, at the expense of DAP or Gerakan?

Can Penangites expect free meals and K-Pop (BTS @ HanChiang) courtesy of the paymaster(s) for new parties fishing for ignorant tamchiak votes?

FangCao

Jeff Ooi is a has been, failed to be relevant in DAP, now seeking revival under Warisan?

Warisan lost in Sabah, no credibility to show in peninsular Malaysia. Also why Warisam dare not enter the malay heartland if Shafie claimed to have strong Umnk background and experience?

Less than 200 Malayan Tigers in the wild now. Mercy capture and release them in protected tiger park before too late.

No tigers, cat which looks like tiger orso can do. We have plenty and even a city name Cat

Politics can be good career choice to earn big income especially when the system is rotten not able to penalise the corruptions.

No wonder we are seeing many ruining for election s.

glissantia

To make it big in politics requires no skills or integrity, only skill in (a) spouting politically correct or popular phrases (b) acting. You must also be ruthless.

Silverberg

Is there (or Has there been) a Bahasa Malaysia version of Aliran?

Most Malaysians cannot read English due to their education background.

PCH

Most rakyat are too forgiving and tak malu so corruption is like Omicron to learn to live with.
Rotting nation is a failed nation. One Anil’s reader must have 88 reasons0 to deny this.

shriek

Alpha, Omega and Robin always respond my statements. No reply from them for more than a month means they agreed and yet they roar they and their Tai Lo runs the country better. Yes better as they love the rottening smell.
