Listen to soft instrumental music for 15 to 20 mins before bed to calm the emotions and have a restful night . . .
The politics has come full circle in Malaya. The present political situation in the country, except in Sarawak, is the best ever for a long time because we have a hung Parliament.
Hopefully, the heads of state will finally realise the importance of remaining above the fray to help ensure political stability.
Having said that, no court will go against heads of state who ignore frogs clutching SDs.
Some things are beyond the Constitution, conventions, law and the court.
The Perak case law, in my opinion, is null and void to the extent of its inconsistency with the Federal Constitution, the superior law.
Although the Agong appoints the Prime Minister, for example, he cannot sack the latter. He can only replace the PM if the incumbent resigns.
The Agong “cannot” appoint a new PM, when the incumbent has not resigned, and later claim that the former PM was automatically sacked when a replacement was appointed.
However, no court will go against the Agong if he doesn’t remain above the fray.
In the court of public opinion, the head of state will be seen as having been party to illegalities, and risking coming into odium, contempt, ridicule and public disrepute.
Going forward, every seat in Malaysia should be contested by Independents, win or lose, to get a hearing on matters of public concern and public interest. Eventually, some Independents will make it to Parliament and the state assemblies.
DAP, to break the racial factor in politics, should contest win or lose all seats in the legislature . . . Parliament and the state assemblies.
The 57 Borneo MPs should form a united, neutral, independent bloc in Parliament.
Instead, Mahathir from Kerala has done that in Malaya. His Malaya-centric bloc in Parliament includes MPs from Sabah and Sarawak as well.
Borneo rights . . .
The Federal gov’t has been non-compliant on the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) since Malaysia Day on 16 Sept 1963. MA63 is the basis for Sabah and Sarawak to be in Malaysia with Malaya.
No MA63, no Malaysia.
A Borneo bloc in Parliament is the only way to get the Federal gov’t to comply with MA63. In any case, it can be argued that MA63 has ceased to exist because of non-compliance by the Federal gov’t.
Mahathir destroyed the Federal concept in Malaya.
Malaysia is not Federation but Equal Partnership under MA63. Read the Definition of Federation in Article 160. It only refers to the Federation of Malaya Agreement 1948 reinforced by the Federation of Malaya Independence Act 1957.
Only those who inherited NCR land in Sabah and Sarawak from their ancestors thousands of years ago are Indigenous and Native in Malaysian Borneo. They are the Orang Asal in Sabah and Sarawak.
Read Article 161A of the Federal Constitution on who can inherit, transfer and buy NCR land.
The Orang Asli in Malaya are covered by the Aboriginal Peoples Act 1954. The first people in Malaya were Negrito from Kerala, southwest India. They came 40, 000 years ago. They are still there in the mountains of Malaya and Kerala. The Negrito came to Kerala 70, 000 years ago from east Africa.
On a separate but related matter, the state assemblies in Sabah and Sarawak can Invoke Article VIII of MA63 for a new form of self-determination.
It does not matter whether Parliament recognises Article VIII of MA63 or otherwise.
Anything can happen in court. If you go to court and lose, that’s the end of the matter.
The letter of the law alone is not the sum total of the rule of law. The rule of law means looking at both the letter and spirit of the law with greater emphasis on the latter.
Letter of the law alone for rule BY law as in China is not law at all but dictatatorship.
There’s no democracy.
Political issues must be settled politically, not in a court of law.
Don’t emulate Sarawak. PBB is prepared to lose in court. In fact, they would be happy to lose.
They root for ketuanan Melayu, not MA63.
That’s why Sabah and Sarawak are not on the same page.
Putrajaya . . .
It does not matter who forms the gov’t in Putrajaya.
What’s important is that there’s strong Opposition in Parliament i.e. no two-thirds majority for the gov’t. The Borneo bloc, win or lose, should never give the gov’t in Putrajaya two-thirds majority in Parliament.
A strong Opposition is the best guarantee for Malaysia. It will expose all the scandals in gov’t. That happened before GE14.
The BN gov’t fell after 60 years.
At present, Mahathir is trying to stagemanage who becomes Prime Minister. There’s no consensus. PKR is against Mahathir and anything he proposes.
PKR was formed to STOP Mahathir getting away with anything and everything.
Anwar’s family was TOTALLY against Mahathir.
It was STUPID DAP which welcomed Mahathir defecting to the Opposition, proposed he form Bersatu, and even more STUPIDLY accepted him as Prime Minister for the 2nd time.
I warned against this before GE14. I said Mahathir would do as he pleased in Cabinet and would betray PH.
Finally, Bersatu left PH because Mahathir wanted to revive the gravy train based on plundering the public treasury so that a few people could fill their pockets at the expense of the nation. PH said NO to reviving the gravy train.
Mahathir resigned because he knew Muhyiddin would take over and form an all-Melayu gov’t. That’s what Mahathir wants.
PAS wants an all-Melayu gov’t in Putrajaya.
Umno wants a gov’t in Putrajaya with token non-Malay representation.
The Orang Asal are plagued by frogs, masquerading as leaders, who latch on to Melayu YouKnowWhat in Malaya and subscribe to the cium tangan cium pantat syndrome to fill their pockets at the expense of MA63.
It was Mahathir who made the gov’t sector 90 per cent Melayu.
A 90 per cent Malay gov’t sector will be TOTALLY against any multiracial gov’t in Putrajaya. The gov’t sector refused to co-operate with the PH gov’t led by Mahathir.
The Mahathir gov’t was leaking all over the place and got a bad Press.
DAP lied to Sabah and Sarawak on 50 per cent revenue, 20 per cent oil royalty, and Equal Partnership of Sabah, Sarawak and Malaya in Malaysia as per MA63.
DAP claimed that Mahathir was against the promises that it made to the people of Sabah and Sarawak.
Prime Minister . . .
The PH Plus MPs can vote by secret ballot for the PM candidate.
At least three candidates should offer themselves. The candidates must come from different races, religions and gender. It’s politically untenable to have a Malay Prime Minister in perpetuity.
If no candidate gets 51 per cent, there should be a runoff between the two leading candidates.
This is an idea whose time has come.
I wrote about it in a blog piece some time ago.

Britain finally seized Malaya from Siam in 1909.
Both can be snowy white like Michael Jackson, instead of Azeez continuing to display prejudice in Parliament.
