Right Gopal! I recognise YOU as one of those roaming around spreading trash! Happily for you, you are not parading as one of the political alternatives you mentioned. Ha ha!

No we have not progressed much since the ISA because the government should have thrown the keys away after locking up some of the trash that now roam the streets parading as political alternatives.

They were … peddling snake oil politics then as they do now.

The likes of Ambiga Sreenivasan, Raja Petra Kamaruddin and their empty uncosted promises and crackpot suggestions and philosophies are testament to the need for an ISA and greater powers to detain for longer periods such trash.

I appreciate deeply the loss and the pain suffered by all those who were detained (and still under detention) under ISA for having political views and thoughts that differ from the Government

George Soros is not only one of the best investors in the world but very well informed too. He has spelt clearly what Malaysians have known all the while. Malaysia with all the riches in raw materials should have a stronger currency but what started one for one equivalent with S’pore 30 yrs ago now has lost out to S’pore currency by 2.3 times. Now Malaysians know why……..Soros has explained in very great detail….. Of course one cannot get to read this in the main media in Malaysia .
