Lulu Wonders If Penang Gerakan Is Leaving Gerakan

assist an opposition-led state government? how can???

afterall, remember what happened when Datuk Lee Kah Choon took up the offer from the DAP-led Penang government to join Penang Development Council and Invest Penang?
mind you, by then, he had resigned from all party posts, but remained an ordinary member of the party.
The hounds of Gerakan went for the jugular.
All kinds of accusations and tomahan were out there on him for his decision to put Penang above party politics.
Gerakan sent him a show-cause letter to explain his decision to accept a director's post in the Penang Development Corporation (PDC) and InvestPenang and why disciplinary action should not be taken against him for his decision.
In the end, Datuk Lee resigned from Gerakan.
"Since accepting the posts was not acceptable to the Gerakan leadership, I believe it is best for me to retreat totally from party politics,
I hope this puts to rest any discussion on the matter.
My objective is clear and had remained consistent throughout my political career, which is serving the people.
I believe the focus on job creation and measures to ensure sustainable growth is more important than continuous politicking. My objective is clear and it has remained consistent throughout my political career, which is serving the people. Hence, I have decided to answer the government's call for me to serve in both state agencies in this trying period,"
well said by a fine statesman.

So, going by the same measure, shouldn't Penang Gerakan, for whatever their motives may be, be censured and disciplined for doing what the PM calls, acting against BN spirit? shouldn't Penang Gerakan be jeered and intimidated into leaving Gerakan?

DOes this Dr Teng know what he is opening himself to?
Is he playing some high level politic-thing, plotting to get Gerakan Penang thrown out of Gerakan?

Lulu Worries For Jack and Jill

Lulu is worried in case someday, some Jack and Jill go up Bukit Gasing to "fetch a pail of water" ala the nursery rhyme.
And it so happens that the you-know-which-fellas do a raid there and catch Jill in a "tumbling after".
In that case, well, definetly, that poem has to be banned. After all, see where it led Jack and Jill.

More! More! Lulu Wants More!

there are so many little Napoleons out there, imposing their own rules on others.
Lulu hopes the days of little Napoleons would soon come to an end.
but Lulu's not holding her breath as the government of the day is still UMNO, and most little Napoleons are, by some strange coincidence, UMNO members.

how will Lulu get her "more! more!"?
ah..... by changing the government!
Lulu hopes to be able to see it in her lifetime.
yey! yey!

Lulu Would Have Had No Quarrels With The Arrests

if the police had been consistent.
but they werent.

in this protest video, not only did the police not ask the crowd to disperse, the protestors were given police escort in to a private premise where a multiracial multifaith forum was going on.

in this protest against a foreign guest, once again, they were given police escort into the premise.

whereas this group was chased after and beaten.

how do you explain these kind of inconsistencies to your children?

Lulu Wonders If This Will Work

- That was when we saw some plainclothes cops chasing a few of the people in yellow Bersih and black and red “Free RPK” T-shirts.
- My wife saw the plain-clothes police taking away a few women and small-built persons (could be teenagers).
- They came in full force, in uniform and plain clothes supported by FRU.
- I was chased too by a loud, vulgar screaming, plain-cloth guy ( I don't know if he's a cop, maybe he is ).

Lulu was thinking-la,
maybe the next vigil/protest/demo/whatever,
we go in three's
then when we see the police charging,
the fella on the left and right pretend to be beating up the guy in the middle
and then pretend to drag him to some dark alley
but actually making their way to the getaway car.

after all, what is there to differentiate the plain-cloth policeman from the normal protestor, other than of course, their evil intent?

you think Lulu's plan can jadi-ah?

Lulu's PM, The Village Idiot, Strikes Again!

sigh... Lulu still can't get over having the village idiot as Prime Minister
PM: Police must have reasons to act
Nov 10, 08 8:26pm
Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi today defended the police in arresting 23 people, including three opposition leaders, who participated in a gathering in Petaling Jaya last night.
He said that the police had valid reasons to act against the 23.
"Police must have reasons to do that," he told reporters after chairing the National Innovation Council meeting in Parliament today
come on-la, everyone has a reason.

Khairy's Rembau branch closed nominations early for a reason.
UMNO members vote in "respectable" leaders like MMTaib for a reason..
Dr M put in AAB as his successor for a reason.
Altantuya got C4-ed for a reason.
The government paid the judges RM10.5 million for a reason.
Those ugly protests led by UCCA bound ITM college kids against Khalid Ibrahim went on without a hitch for a reason.
The government wants to loan our EPF money to a lost cause like Valuecap for a reason.
UMNO issues Zaid a show-cause letter for a reason.

Of course the police had a reason.
good or bad, right or wrong, that's another issue altogether.

Bad Enough They Took In Lulu's MP, Assemblyman and Councillor,

they hurt them too.
Why does the police have to be nasty and brutal?

Lulu's State Assemblyman's Blog
Hit twice at the face. The second punch hurts my lips and it's bleeding, also a few scratches on my face.

Lulu's MP's blog
the CPO Selangor issued the call to arrest me, and 2 guys came over to grab one arm each and pushed me towards the Black Maria.

I stated that I will walk, don't be rough but they tore my shirt instead. I repeated my call and 3 other police officers came at me, one with the knees into my belly while another attempted to kick my shin.

They then chucked me against the back of the Black Maria truck and shoved me up despite me stating that I can climb myself.

Tiew Way Kheng, councillor for SS1, SS3 and SS9A, and a lovely person was taken in.

:( bad bad day for the country

Bersih Rally Changed Venue - Update from Lulu

lol, not anil
but, Lulu's going over there soon, so, please get updates from

meet at the Lotus restaurant. this is the old State cinema, facing Civic Center

chao folks!

the updates from anil

1940: My contact in PJ has been circling around, trying to get to the venue, but all four entry points into Amcorp Mall are blocked by traffic police.

1928: Federal Highway from Jalan Utara is blocked. Police are said to be present around Padang Timor near Amcorp Mall. They are obviously not taking any chances, even though it is unlikely the Bersih folks would have managed to get a big crowd this time.

1909: The road blocks near Amcorp Mall could be because the Bersih coalition (campaigning for electoral reforms) is expected to join the Abolish ISA group.

Meanwhile, Rakyat@Work is now in Taiping, heading to Ipoh.

1857: It looks as if roads are blocked in all directions heading towards Amcorp Mall and even A&W.

1852: We are getting reports of a road block heading to Amcorp Mall

Lulu Can't Believe That It Has Been A(lmost) Year Since Bersih March

and we've come a long way.

We all got together, regardless of race and religion, to voice out how unhappy we are with the way our votes have been cheapened by the way elections are run.
remember Bersih's demands?
* The use of indelible ink to prevent double-voting;
* The abolishment of postal votes;
* Clean-up of the electoral roll;
* Equal and fair access to national media.

we may not have got them yet, but Lulu would like to think of it as work in progress.
and our "work" as the rakyat, is to see this initiative through.

Come join the Bersih gang for their rally on Sunday, 9pm.
The anti-ISA vigils will be on as usual before the Bersih program.

Lulu hopes to see you there ;p

It Kinda Breaks Lulu's heart

listening to Fong Po Kuan plead,
"Saya pohon Tan Sri..."

and in spite of it all, he threw the cili padi, who was already reduced to tears, out of Parliament.

kinda sad
breaks Lulu's heart
