  • A party led by a kleoptocrate's friend? Be very careful! It should be ok if majority of their members are of similar character. Abuse of power, corruption, threatening, political sabotaging and marginalization and racial cum religion bigots. Another 30 years USD1=RM8, petrol price=RM5, fresh grad pay=RM3,000 but one terrace house is RM1million. What future is Malaysia?

  • Who are you to say UMNO respect courts decision. Don't waste Rakyats money laa brader on long court cases. Admit and go in. Better to go in when you are still younger rather than older.
