Firstly, we cannot equate what is happening in Egypt with Malaysia because things are very different in the two countries.Najib Tun Razak
CORRUPTION IS CORRUPTION!
IN MALAYSIA OR MYANMAR!
THE ONLY DIFFERECE IS:
The degree of corruption and the expediency of MACC, and the judiciary.
Najib and his boys need to contemplate hard on these quotes on this holy day!
Corruption has its own motivations, and one has to thoroughly study that phenomenon and eliminate the foundations that allow corruption to exist.
Corruption never has been compulsory.
Corruption is worse than prostitution. The latter might endanger the morals of an individual, the former invariably endangers the morals of the entire country.
Corruption, the greatest single bane of our society today.
I will be happy with certainly when the corruption index improve.

Money and corruption are ruining the land, crooked politicians betray the working man, pocketing the profits and treating us like sheep, and were tired of hearing promises that we know theyll never keep.
No science is immune to the infection of politics and the corruption of power.
The corruption in reporting starts very early. Its like thepolicereporting on thepolice.
The duty of youth is to challenge corruption.
The firstsi! gn ofcorruption in a society that is still alive is that the end justifies the means.
The winner must promote social jusitce, remove corruption and discrmination, and stand againstpolitical, cultural and economic plots.
We see violence to forcibly seize land, at any price, murders and corruption.
Whoever looks at Malaysia will see: the ship is powered by stupidity, corruption, or prejudice.
IT WONT HAPPEN HERE.
JUST MAYBE LATER.
PKRvice presidentTian Chua ticked offPrimeMinisterNajib Razak for ignorance and for trying to mislead the public when he recently challenged the Pakatan Rakyat to form a shadow Cabinet.
This is oneguywho doesnt know what he is talking about, he is simply shooting his mouth off. A shadow Cabinet such as those practised in the advanced democracies like U.K. are formalized structures recognized by the ruling coalition, Tian, who is also the Batu MP, toldMalaysia Chronicle.
When a certain Bil! l is due to be debated, the relevant shadow ministry is invited to give its views and expected to challenge or support the Bill in Parliament. In other words, a two-party system is recognized as a norm. Can Najib look Malaysians in the eye and say that he and BN recognise a two-party system here?
Treated like enemies, not fellow citizens
But shallow though the PMs arguments may have been and despite his usual refusal to take intoaccountimportant facts that did not favour him, his Cabinet colleagues and several pro-Umno bloggers rushed to cheer him on.
Over the weekend, Najib had actually hailed the advantages a shadow Cabinet could reap for the country. In Malaysia we only have a government Cabinet. The opposition is incapable of forming one and does not know how to distribute portfolios to the right figures among its ranks,Bernamareported him as saying.
But according to Tian, Najib omitted to tell the crowd that his BN coalition treated opposition MPs as enemies, rather than as fellow citizens working for the betterment of the country.
The Najibadministrationhas even banned extending any form of financial allocation to the opposition. So extreme has the BN government been that Sungai Siput MP Michael Jeyaraj Devakumar filed a lawsuit to compel it to provide financing for essential repairs and development projects at constituencies that did not cote for them
Recently, in a move condemned by foreign parliamentarians, Najib even hammered through resolutions suspending Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim, Karpal Singh, Azmin Ali and Sivarasa Rasiah. The four men had persisted on asking him to reveal details of a shadowy public relations and strategic communications contract he signed with APCO, a New York based firm whose top management has links to the Israeli secret service including Shin B! et.
This is the reality of the existing Malaysian parliamentary system. To hide these facts just to attack Pakatan shows smalless and desperation. Malaysias deserves a primeministerwith greater intellectual and spiritual depth, a man who doesnt lie but confronts the truth and works out solutions, said Tian.
Tian also said Pakatan Rakyat took a shadow Cabinet very seriously.
It is actually a promise to the people. Say for example, if we were tomakeTony Pua theFinanceminister and Tony wins his seat, then we should honor it because that is what we told the people. Not like now when the BN makes a mockery of the entire system. Have you ever seen in any of their manifesto who would form the team to lead Malaysia if they won? What happens now is BN only chooses after the elections are over and then its completely up to Umno. There is a huge amount of horse trading involved and in the end the people never get to see their dream team, he said.
While it has not been able to run a proper shadow Cabinet, Pakatan has actually already established a committee of shadow portfolios. At least one lawmaker from each of the three Pakatan parties DAP, PAS and PKR sit in each portfolio.
They track various national issues and developments as well as proposedBills. For example, when the Defence ministry recently proposed buying six patrol warships for an exorbitant RM6billion, representatives of the Pakatan defense group issued press statements to alert the public of what they perceived to be gross overpricing.
We really wish we could formalize into a more concrete shadow Cabinet but until Najib! and BN changes their tune, we have to stick with our steering committees. These have actually been quite successful in raising awareness. It is just the mainstream press that doesnt report our efforts or reports them negatively, Tian said.readmoreNajib is talking through his Smelly Blackhole, says PKRs Tian Chua Wisconsin Protests Draw Thousands Of Workers Fighting For Key Union Rights
