Lament of a stressed-out minister
COMMENT I tell you, it's tough laa, being a minister these days.
We have to take so much shit. From the media, from Facebook , from bloggers, from the Opposition. It was so different when Dr Mahathir Mohamad was PM. Nobody dared to question any minister then. Nobody wrote a word to criticise. But now ...
And it's not like we make that much money. Our salary is nothing compared to Singapore. Some more, the people don't appreciate it. They think we are getting kickbacks left, right and centre...
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/opposition 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.
