Best from Malaysiakini's Vox Populi

I've picked the following letters to Malaysiakini's Vox Populi as the best for certain topics, because of their points, humour or sarcasm. Enjoy!

On Police ignored mob, say forum organisers and Penang groups: It's not stupid to protest

Minority Voice: It does not take much intelligence to conclude that there was collusion between the police and the demonstrators. The police knew that the demonstrators were coming and yet they were not prevented from gathering. There was no tear gas hurled at them and no water cannons used. They were not told to disperse but instead a lawful assembly of concerned citizens who assembled to discuss issues that concerned the minority of the citizens were told to leave.

Why this velvet glove approach? The reason is quite simple - the minority must keep quiet in this country. And little Napoleons continue to decide when where the strong arm of the law shall be applied regardless of reason. Whither this country?

Reminiscent of the UMNO unleashed mob that harassed the Aptet II conference - our dear Anwar Ibrahim was then acting PM. See my 2 postings on this disgraceful episode:

(1) Aptet II Disgrace - all for an alien nation!
(2) Aptet II Disgrace - He who cannot be named!

On 'Last Communist' for MPs' eyes only

HJ Angus: Maybe they will watch only 50 percent of the film with ‘one eye closed’.

I am insulted as this implies the MPs have more brains than me. The money for the screening can be put to better use unless the MPs are going to pay.

I love his first sentence ;-)
