I've just returned from a trip to Halong Bay which is a world heritage site. Today is also my 60th birthday.
But getting back to the problems in the judiciary, just look at Pakistan and see how a country can really go to the dogs with a dictator in power. It looks that the rule of law is being replaced by the rule of the gun.
We Malaysians must guard against this happening and the so-called silent majority cannot remain silent anymore unless we want things to get worse.
malaysiakini's article "Fairuz gone, but crisis remains" shows what needs to be done to improve the situation in Malaysia.
The MALAYSIAWATCH POLL (in green)also shows that 80% out of 747 readers believe "We Need a Royal Commission" or "The Chief Justice Should be Brought Before a Tribunal".
The choice of "The Independent Panel will Find the Answer" was selected by only 1%.
That really shows how much confidence we have in this toothless mechanism. For a government that has been in power since independence, it shows an utter lack of interest or intention to do the right thing.
It shows the height of arrogance couple with the dearth of integrity.
We need more capable people in government soon or I expect in about 15 years Vietnam will overtake Malaysia as a more vibrant economy.
For the silent majority, please do this. Write to your MP about your concerns in the Judiciary and ask him/her what he/she is doing about it. Better still, get a group of friends and ask to meet your MP.That should be quite an interesting adventure.
