Kit Siang’s caretaker bullshit

Thu 2013-Mar-14 @ MYT 09:13:39 am

In 2008, a month before the general election, Lim Kit Siang filed suit for the High Court to declare a caretaker government … during the dissolution of Parliament until the swearing-in of the new Cabinet after the general election.

Kit Siang’s morality bullshit

Kit Siang's bullshit: what he did in 2008

Now in 2013, lawyer Kit Siang accepts that Parliament will be automatically dissolved on April 28 but, just like a lawyer, he twists around to argue that morally Najib Razak should behave like a caretaker government from March 8.

Why should Najib do so? He has no constitutional reason to do so.

The DAP and Pakatan Rakyat, crowing with their partial 2008 victory, want to rub Barisan Nasional’s noses in the March 8 date for their own psychological warfare. But since when does any prime minister of any country forego his constitutional privileges in order to dance to the tune of an opposition politician?

Dubious morality by Kit Siang

All governments — including the five states under Pakatan administration — have the right under the constitution to decide when to dissolve the legislatures. The Pakatan states could on their own call for early state elections. Why don’t they just go ahead and do so instead of shouting at Najib?

Bullshit smells the same from any side

    Democracy is surely the defining principle of our time. Most every good – freedom and equality, justice and human rights – is today linked to democracy. It is synonymous with political legitimacy and the open society. Politicians from both the ruling party and the opposition argue rules and laws and are allowed to question each other and this becomes a vibrant democracy. HITLER and Mussolini each came to power through democracy. Democracies do not always make societies more civil—but they do always mercilessly expose the health of the societies in which they operate. The BN and Mahathir the fascist were exposed in the Malaysian democracy. However as long as the opposing politicians debate in peace then it is legitimate, why get upset and confused. All they are doing is trying to win voter support using all means.
