You’d think that with all BN’s bragging about ‘Promises fulfilled’ and its so-called transformations of Malaysia under Najib Abdul Razak’s premiership that writing a column for the 55th Merdeka Day would be a fresh and exciting challenge.
But when I look back on my previous Merdeka Day offerings, I see that most are as relevant in 2012 as they were back then, so pitifully little has changed in the interim.
For example, I could re-use my 2007 effort, ‘Rid of Britain, now for BN’, without changing more than a word or two.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
