Umno supporters have started trooping into Bukit Jalil Stadium for the party’s 66th anniversary gathering tonight.

Bukit Jalil Stadium is now surrounded with Umno flags. The stadium has an advertised capacity of 100000 people, but actual seating capacity is around 87000.

Umno Youth exco member Lokman Adam tweeted that LRT services had been extended to midnight, that is after Umno’s programme is over.

This is in sharp contrast to 28 April, in the late afternoon, when those attending Bersih 3.0 found LRT stations shuttered as they tried to return home after the rally in downtown KL.

April 28 gathering causing tremendous problems to the people including physical damages to properties. I believe LRT stations shuttered to avoid any physical damages by the protesters.… Read more »

Anil,

I have a question which has nothing to do with this post. Sorry 🙂

Read an interesting bit of news in The Sun today about how the Penang state government wants the Free Port status reintroduced here.

Is it true? Can you please provide some updates about it?

Double standard happens everywhere even though this is your home turf. But that is the fact. It is OK to distract when the subject matter is related to Umno.

Ban me or don’t publish my comment if you can’t take criticism.

@dissidentist: You are good at distracting people from the issue being discussed, aren’t you? [1]

Well, thank you, Ahmad. I’m flattered. Gherkin’s stupidity inspires me. We must thank him too.

Look at the comparison he’s trying to make. I can see an apology in the previous comment. Did you see one in his link?

This may threaten the rice bowl of Langkawi, a pet island projek of this ApaNama who robbed us Penangites of the free port status to fulfill his dream on the Lang island.
Had it not happened, Penangites today would be as rich as SingKahPoh lang.
BTW, I Iove the Nature of Langkawi & its mysterious spirit-filled rainforest, notwithstanding its spoon-fed free port status.
