We are truly amazing. What an about turn by P. Balasubramaniam (pic, left). We have become a basket case as far as Malaysian politics are concerned. We have been taken in by ambitious politicians and their operatives, who will resort to any means to stay in power or grab power. Meanwhile, we are beginning to look more like a cirucs with each passing day. Statutory declarations, with little serious substance or just merely hearsay, are made. In this case, to be retracted the next day. Politicians claimed they are being pressured, under duress and even assasinated. As all these silliness take place, the Bursa Malaysia - which claims to be world class - takes a beating with a total blackout for a day. The disaster recovery plan wasn't working yesterday and until now, no heads have roll. As of 2.55pm, the market is 32 points down. But what is certain is that the price of crude oil has now hit USS146 and still going up. America Airlines has announced that 2,000 jobs would be lost. The rakyat are sick and tired of this political crap. Politcians claim they are fighting for our interest - never their selfish interest - but are we seeing real work being done?
