  • Competition is best for schoolbus men, parents
  • Wan Saiful Wan Jan | Oct 31, 2014 1:51PM
  • The Land Public Transport Commission’s (Spad) decision to let school bus operators negotiate bus fares with parents is a progressive step forward in ensuring the costs are decided by market mechanisms. Unfortunately, for reasons unknown Spad has not adopted the same attitude towards express bus operators.

  • Will BN even now write-off Ku Li’s warning?
  • JD Lovrenciear | Oct 31, 2014 5:55AM
  • For quite a while Malaysians have been crying out over the uncontrolled, escalating cost of living. When the opposition political parties joined the chorus or stood up to champion the rakyat’s misery, the government of the day slammed the politicians for misleading the rakyat and “politicising”.

  • Consider petrol subsidy for retirees and those 60+
  • Lau Bing | Oct 30, 2014 12:39PM
  • The government has proposed a cut-off point on subsidies for petrol sale nationwide next year based on an individual’s monthly salary/income, of which this (reduction on subsidies) is to be worked out into three categories like those earning up to RM5,000 monthly will get to buy petrol with a subsidy, those earning between RM5,000 to RM10,000 will still get a reduced subsidy, and the next group with earnings of RM10,000 and above will have to pay the full market price.

  • Please stop the madness on multi-tiered fuel subsidy
  • TK Chua | Oct 29, 2014 3:45PM
  • I refer to the proposed multi-tiered fuel subsidy scheme based on different income levels to be implemented by mid-next year. Seriously, I have never seen a rationalisation scheme more irrational and foolish than this. Are the Treasury and those entrusted with financial management going bonkers? What are they thinking really?

  • Justice for the Justices
  • P Dev Anand Pillai | Oct 29, 2014 3:33PM
  • Most were caught off guard when former Federal Court Judge Gopal Sri Ram, FCJ appeared as the lead counsel in opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim’s final appeal on the Sodomy II case in the Federal Court, and it immediately sent tongues wagging about whether ex-judges should be barred from the Bar and appearing in courts before their ex-colleagues.

  • Do we tell UM students to cover their eyes and ears?
  • Lee Hwok Aun | Oct 29, 2014 2:57PM
  • Dear UM colleagues [and everybody],

    I am a member of the Academic Staff Association of Universiti Malaya (PKAUM) and I attended the event on Monday night. I am glad that Universiti Malaya (UM) can be a place where political speech flows freely and peacefully. I can attest that many who attended were not fawning, bedazzled, naive Anwar Ibrahim devotees.

  • Nuclear power is not a wise or viable energy option
  • Dr Ronald McCoy | Oct 29, 2014 7:53AM
  • The Bernama report that the United States has offered to help Malaysia build a nuclear power plant has caught the attention of Malaysian Physicians for Social Responsibility, who have been seriously working to convince the Malaysian government that such a project is not a wise or viable energy option, since it carries inherent risks and is not affordable, economically viable, socially acceptable and environmentally sound.

  • Don’t switch off the light in the hearts of the young
  • JD Lovrenciear | Oct 28, 2014 2:37PM
  • Indeed, it is most shameful and cowardly of the Universiti Malaya management and its leaders to react in such manner as students looked forward to their leader and icon to address them on the night of Oct 27 at the campus of Malaysia’s premier corridor of learning and formation.

  • Freedom and independence exclusively for Americans?
  • Salehuddin Omar | Oct 28, 2014 2:21PM
  • It has been rather a routine for the foreign powers-that-be, namely the Anglo-American superpowers, to dictate and decide on foreign policies in the international arena. Top of the most important in their list is of course, freedom, justice and democracy whereby they are so proud of propagating throughout the world, on the pretext of liberalising “third world countries” from the “clutches of tyranny, oppression and autocracy.”

  • Nizam Mahshar | Oct 27, 2014 6:00PM

  • Kanika | Oct 27, 2014 4:42PM
  • Students who joined the private medical college in the northern region with the dream of graduating as a doctor and to serve the citizen have been affected terribly by the current woes. To attain their dreams they achieved excellent results and convinced their parents and sponsors to finance their study, in consequence of limited seats in public medical colleges.

  • Wrong to label people simply on assumptions
  • BrainZ | Oct 27, 2014 10:49AM
  • I find it extremely disturbing to read about supposed authoritative figures in the field of psychology and psychiatry in Malaysia making sweeping statements on the behaviour of the organisers and participants of events that are outside the norm of the local culture; but worst of all, fail to define basic terminologies in psychology that even a degree student in psychology should know.
