poisonous Rengas - poisonous Malaysian politics
poisonous corruption - poisonous racial relationship

Amidst widespread public unease on creeping return of Mahathirism, former Pandan MP and PKR leader Rafizi Ramli’s call for relentless public scrutiny of the new regime is timely.
Time of euphoria of electoral victory is over. Time of pre-election BN/Umno bashing is also over. What we must ponder seriously now is: are we heading in the right direction?
Have we done the right thing to speedily reform the hideous system left over by the Umno-led regime? What have we done to remove economic bottlenecks to restore investors’ confidence and reboot the economy?
Has the new regime made an impact on our economy yet? If not, why? Why has the entire cabinet remained mute when Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad repeatedly indulges on impulsive decision-making over major issues apparently without serious deliberation and consultation with the cabinet?
Such as his abrupt announcement on premature immediate zero-rating of GST, abrupt cancellation of KL-Singapore High-Speed Rail project, starting a new national car project, ....... procrastinating over the repeal of the unconstitutional National Security Council Act, etc.
act dunno - keep playing your Sudoku
It was the previous autocratic rule of Mahathir that built the abominable system that allowed the Najib autocracy to flower and almost sank the nation. Do we want any more of such autocracy?
It is at times like this when the collective leadership of Pakatan Harapan seems to have submerged and the regime becoming apparently directionless that we need leaders with Rafizi’s integrity and calibre to stand up and speak the truth fearlessly.
It is also hoped that the public will remain vigilant and critical whenever criticism is called for to ensure that the powers-that-be that they have elected will serve the purpose for which they have voted them for.
