Malaysia’s economy

We are not in crisis. This is not like 1997 or 2009, when we needed stimulus packages for our economy.

Najib Razak, insisting that the country is not in crisis despite the alarming drop in global crude oil prices and the national currency


Cutting RM400 million is too small to make an impact. RM400 million is like the cost of two jets. It would be better if he (Najib) just sells off the two jets for the RM400 million.

Rafizi Ramli, PKR Secretary General, opining that Prime Minister Najib Razak should off the government jets he uses for travel as part of his austerity measures

He (Zainuddin) has never indicated this to me. The issue never arose during our discussions.

Najib-Anwar’s partnership?

Why attack Daim when the focus of our efforts ought to be centred on kicking Najib out of Putrajaya?

Ariff Sabri, Raub MP, questioning why Pakatan Rakyat’s de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim has agreed to expose the wrongdoings of former finance minister Daim Zainuddin, when doing so will only serve to keep the prime minister in power for longer


DAP’s attitude

I urge DAP leaders not to continue with their proud and arrogant attitude as it goes against the practices and spirit of friendship in this cooperation.

Mustafa Ali, PAS secretary general, telling DAP not to be arrogant in Pakatan Rakyat


Zahid caught lying again?

Has Zahid Hamidi been caught red-handed telling another lie?

Lim Kit Siang, DAP advisor, questioning if Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had lied when saying that his predecessors had written letters, similar to the ones he sent to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) after Hishamuddin Hussein’s claim that he never did



Perkasa is not a tool of Umno. We criticise Umno when necessary. We are not power hungary like Kok, DAP and PKR.

Ibrahim Ali, Perkasa chief
