  • When will we ever say enough is enough?
  • JD Lovrenciear | May 26, 2015 7:22PM
  • The latest revelation by the Bank Negara governor is spine-chilling. Hot on its heels we also learn that the two top guns of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) snubbed the public accounts committee (PAC) by asking for a 30-days grace period. And if that is not enough the Prime Minister, Najib Abdul Razak, hollers all the way from Japan that the duo will not run away and will keep their date with the PAC.

  • Najib’s 11MP ‘building castles in the air’?
  • Nga Kor Ming | May 26, 2015 12:39PM
  • Najib Abdul Razak’s 11th Malaysia Plan announced on May 21 is not only building castles in the air but also lacking in substance and unrealistic. It is an imaginary plan by Najib to manipulate, delude and mislead Malaysians using selective reporting and manipulative statistics.

  • Karamjit Gill | May 25, 2015 10:18AM

  • ‘Punishment’ that rewards, enriches and emboldens
  • Ravinder Singh | May 25, 2015 9:37AM
  • Penang state executive councillor Chow Kon Yeow couldn’t have been serious when he said that the developer who demolished the colonial era mansion at 20 Pykett Avenue, Penang before the state could gazette it as a heritage building “had been punished enough since it had waited for four years.” This actually sounds cynical.

  • The circus called Hindraf
  • Raghavan Nair | May 24, 2015 5:23PM
  • The Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) is back, pointing fingers. Its national adviser N Ganesan has jumped on the bandwagon of P Waythamoorthy to ridicule and condemn the government.

  • JD Lovrenciear | May 23, 2015 11:17AM
  • As we begin to witness Umno and its component political parties running helter-skelter in these troubled times of political instability, there is one very noticeable practice that deserves a thorough investigation. It is the uniformed gatherings we see all too often.

  • Focus on the solution to 1MDB, not the problem
  • Dr I Lourdesamy | May 22, 2015 4:00PM

  • No more replacing bad with worse
  • Yee Siew Meng | May 22, 2015 11:32AM
  • Let’s reason for a minute. The state of the nation is certainly in a bad shape even if you were a BN supporter. It has become difficult to deny that the government’s handling of Malaysia’s finances leaves much to be desired. Even to the ordinary Malaysian, the effects of a weakening Ringgit compared to our neighbours is telling of the lack of confidence in Malaysia’s economy.

  • Are we the receiving dump of South-East Asia?
  • P Dev Anand Pillai | May 21, 2015 5:54AM
  • Many have criticised our federal government for turning back the Rohingyas and the Bangladeshis that came a-calling and landed on our Langkawi lsland on their rickety boats in the past two weeks, but little has been said about what impact in our society these refugees and economic illegal migrants have made over the past one to two decades.
