  • " .... respect the principles of democracy in this country .... " - .... Look who's talking. The originator of all these "katak" nonsense is your BOSS, "the prisoner of Sungei Buloh". He caused the fall of the PBS government in Sabah in the '90s, and tried to do the same on the federal government on September 16, 2009. Remember? By the way, sign the MACC anti-corruption pledge-lah. Even Penang did. Why not you? Selangorians remember that your predecessor and his exco voluntarily and publicly declared their assets. Yours refused. Of course, we fall know why. Big hypocrite you are!.
