A few days after Capitol Hill celebrated the historic Health Care in USA, we hear some shocking and illogical statements in our Capital Hill, the Parliament. The American representatives have been working hard to work out a deal for the American people, but in Malaysian Parliament today (9/11/09), it seems our Government is working hard to work out a deal for a selected few in Malaysia.
This is quote from Malaysian Insider. In essence the Minister, Dato Nazri state in Parliament; that it is all right for anyone to fix appointments of Judges.
To say this is a shocking statement, is an understatement.
Under an administration which seems to have an affixation with slogans and numbers (particular the No "1"), this Government must have no clue what the slogans they use as a battle cry, actually means.
Prime Minister, Dato Seri Najib created this 'People First, Performance now' slogan, but we can now see that it actually means, 'My People First, Performance for my people now'.
As a normal citizen, paying my tax, this "looks and sounds" like a cover up. It looks like a crime, it sounds like a crime, but Nazri has confirmed that it is not a crime. If this is not a cover up, I dont know what else is this.
We as Malaysians can now proudly informed all our friends all over the world; that in our Country, we also can (other than having a corrupted Member of State Assembly) fix Judges appointment. And to prove how strong this is, we only need to look at the Hansard of Parliament's sitting of 9th November 2009, to see that a Minister 'confirmed' in the Highest House of the People, the Dewan Rakyat; that in Malaysia we can do that.
There is no people first, there is no performance now but 1 thing is for sure, we can now fix Judges appointment. Perhaps I should start 1 website called 'www.fix-judge-appointment.com.my'. Maybe I should initiate 1 facebook page inviting candidates to be Judges and then broker their names with our Prime Minister and Chief Justice. Or I can do 1 blog ala-malaysia-today style and try to strike deals on this. And the best thing is, this kind of activity is now endorsed by our Ministers in Parliament.
