Lulu Thinks The Way Indelible Ink Is Being Applied Still Leaves Room For Cheating

You know how the EC Chairman and our glorious PM has proudly been proclaiming about how good and great the Elections Commision is?

They've yadda-yadded a few times about Bersih and their demand for the usage of indelible ink.
When people saw his demo, most were concerned that what he was demonstrating - putting the ink on the nail was going to be how it will be applied during the GE. But we remained hopeful.

Lulu thinks the photo in today's Star confirms everyone's worse fears.
Lulu may not be the most fashionable of persons, but Lulu knows, that nail can be disguised tastefully like this
and no one would be able to see if the nail had been marked before.

this is like having the most expensive front door to secure the entrance of your house, but leaving your back door wide open.
idiots! taking us all on a ride!

you ppl arrr, when EC obliges to implement that ink and now you komplain. you must understand that some ppl don like to have the ink painted on the tip (flesh) or palm and EC kompromises by putting on the nail. if you think this is not good, then don suggest to use that ink anyway....

whoa hahaha...spot on, lulu, i wonder what are the possibility that the ink is not removable...all it needs are just some expensive cleaner...

with the available technology today, its so easy to put a layer of transparent plastic over the place to be mark. What is so difficult lar...

dat's why i don agree use the ink at first place - seems abit uncivilized, and waste money election anyway wastes money, but also generate economy)...... if the ink cover whole of my thumb, i feel like i'm marked criminal like dat. i rather to have a small mark on the nail though if the ink really enforced!

Lulu, beside cover up, the print can be filed away. Even better, spray a coat on fingernail so it can remove totally.

"Archaic" method is dirt cheap to implement, as opposed to some hi-tech method which may be not implemented with "expensive" and "costly" as the expected excuses.
I was expecting 'celup jari' into a bottle of ink like the one in Muslim-dominated Indonesia, but now it's reduced to 'calit jari' which can be removed easily.

Sample on how indelible ink should look like:

Of course, there will be possible trick which may not be totally new but recycled from Afghanistan. See http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/south_asia/3727324.stm (read the quoute from Khwaja Malang )

Do You KNOW?

that one teeny weeny bottle of these ink cost nearly RM 50.00? as reported in The China Press: RM 2,400,000 for 50,000 bottles of ink.

Some expensive ink, more expensive than Mont Blamc.

To those that has never voted, don't you wish you had register and be able to put on expensive ink?
