  • In the new Malaysia, please treat all of us Malaysians when making public policies. Less racial rhetoric in public speeches please.

    • We are tired of this "divide and rule" practice inherited from our colonial master. The worst thing is it brings us nowhere except for hatred and leaving more and more people behind.

  • Slash the salaries of these top civil servants . Their productivity falls very far short of their salaries. Most of them are redundant anyway and have mastered the art of delegating work while doing nothing but playing golf themselves.

  • Talking about salary, the salary of a PM in one of our neighbouring country is almost equivalent to the sum of all the salaries of our entire cabinet ministers.

    Kleptocratic? Hahaha..

    • Smart Alec because at least they failed to do the same calculations like TDM did on the profitability analysis of HSR project. Or, did they deliberately miscalculate?
