Consumerist: Malaysia’s Top 10 Liars Award Goes To?


Consumerist: Malaysia’s Top 10 Liars Award Goes To?

Of late, we have an over pouring of statements from past politicians, politicians, aspiring politicians and worst NGO pretenders!

What is vulgar is no one really believes them any more, except a small core group of die hard supporters who want the status quo to continue, enjoying the falls of the gravy train!

SOME and among them, I am advised even a former head of state whose comments have been quite disturbing indeed to today’s enlightened demograph of thinking and intelligent Malaysians!

Worst, some have called him an actor, a self serving individual with a warped mind, others a pathological liar and very selective in his comments and world view!

But since it has come up who is a Pathological liar – or “mythomaniacs” as some define them as?

Some say that they individuals may be suffering from histrionic personality disorder or narcissistic personality disorder.

I did some research since ‘a day does not go by’ without either politicians, or some unheard of NGO head or wanna be politicians or worst myopic vision media practitioners saying something or another!

And the following comments basically reflect a pathological liar who has the characteristics of histrionic personality disorder.

Some Characteristics:
• Exaggerates things that are ridiculous.
• One-upping. Whatever you do, this person can do it better. You will never top them in their own mind, because they have a concerted need to be better than everyone else. This also applies to being right. If you try to confront an individual like this, no matter how lovingly and well-intentioned you might be – this will probably not be effective. It’s threatening their fantasy of themselves, so they would rather argue with you and bring out the sharp knives than admit that there’s anything wrong with them.
• They “construct” a reality around themselves. They don’t value the truth, especially if they don’t see it as hurting anyone. If you call them on a lie and they are backed into a corner, they will act very defensively and say ugly things (most likely but depends on personality), but they may eventually start to act like, “Well, what’s the difference? You’re making a big deal out of nothing!” (again, to refocus the conversation to your wrongdoing instead of theirs).
• Because these people don’t value honesty, a lot of times they will not value loyalty. So watch what you tell them. They will not only tell others, but they will embellish to make you look worse. Their loyalty is fleeting, and because they are insecure people, they will find solace in confiding to whomever is in their favor at the moment.
• They may be somewhat of a hypochondriac. This can come in especially useful when caught in a lie, for example, they can claim that they have been sick, or that there’s some mysteriously “illness” that has them all stressed out. It’s another excuse tool for their behavior.
• Obviously, they will contradict what they say. This will become very clear over time. They usually aren’t smart enough to keep track of so many lies (who would be?).
They lie about even the smallest things. For example, saying “I brushed my teeth today,” when they didn’t.
• They add exaggerations to every sentence.
• They change their story all the time.
• They act very defensively when you question their statements.
• They believe what they say is true, when everyone else knows it isn’t.

If that was not bad enough they:
• Lie when it is very easy to tell the truth.
• Lie to get sympathy, to look better, to save their butt, etc and they
• Fool people at first but once they get to know him, no one believes anything they ever say and they
• May have a personality disorder or they are
• Extremely manipulative and they
• Has been caught in lies repeatedly. But sadly they
• Never fesses up to the lies because they think they are ‘untouchable’ or
• Is a legend in their own mind.

I wonder who are the top 30 most illustrious liars in Malaysia today?

I am deeply sorry no Ferrari or Lamborghini for this contest!

Consumerist: Politicians and Media Told – Don’t Lie!


You ever sat down and thought about how much work it takes to LIE to someone!? You first gotta think of the lie, then you gotta convince them that you’re telling the truth…and if you’re “lucky” enough to make that happen, you then have to come up with 50 more lies to cover up that lie… THEN it comes to the point that you’re lying so much that you’re not gonna even remember why u lied in the first place!

Hello Politicians past, present and aspiring – the Moral Of the story: JUST TELL THE TRUTH!

Consumerist: Malaysia’s Politics Of Shame!

Consumerist: Malaysia’s Politics Of Shame!

I suppose the writings on the wall!

I am advised there are politicians spending much time moving their financial assets out to certain ASEAN countries up north while others are shifting to former Soviet states and South America?

Despite all talk of academic leaps and transformation many seem to have trouble containing political opponents with brains and as such leaving this to beneficiaries of the corrupt social order to do their worst in the name of their own vulgar definition of ‘nationalism, rights, honor, dignity?’

It is so shameful that Malaysian politics has now descended to this gutter level where there is no more human ethics, honor, respect, decency and civility left.

Now political cowards, thugs, and gangsters are called upon to do their failed master’s bidding?
NONESo we have the upheavals and coordinated intimidation at those addressing human rights and free and fair election issues by a minority now politically disfranchised group!

Residential campuses are invaded and laws broken!

We hear threats made, property damaged but no arrest is made!

We hear of damage to property and injuries inflicted on Malaysian who attend civil society and political gatherings in Malacca, Kuala Lumpur, Perak, Selangor and Penang despite provisions in the Federal Constitution!

NONEThere are unlimited documentary evidence on the intimidation, assaults, damage, seditious utterances and identities of these agent provocateurs, yet these criminals are still allowed to walk freely to plan their next mischief and attack?

I do not accept everything the opposition says but I respect their right to say it as long as it is within the laws of the land!

I will combat their arguments if need be with carefully worded and well founded response and data!

And I have done it in several states, among them Selangor, Kedah, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang and Malacca!

NONEI will not send in paid rabid dogs to cause threats, intimidation and unrest!

This is immoral!

So far this vulgar act has only caused more to move away from the Barisan Nasional folder of safe votes!

And now all Malaysians irrespective what religious or racial background they come from are all distancing themselves from the acts and mischief of those cowardly hooligans who plan, finance and carry out these acts of criminal behavior unseen in the political history of Malaysia!

Those who are intimidating and causing untold mischief and now even offering luxury cars which is a sign of sheer desperation and defeat!

They are yet to be pulled in for questioning!

The irony – while another – again – a member of the opposition is being investigated under Section 505(b) of the Penal Code for making a statement “contributing to public mischief”.

Worst, another civil society leader under the outdated Sedition Act 1948 for addressing human rights issues!

And ironically we sit in the UN Human Rights Forum!

If this is not the bastardization of the process I do not know what is?

I have mentioned this to several of my dear friends in the Malaysian cabinet and warned them the perception and anger all these foul acts and activities is causing on the ground!
NONEWhat to me is shocking is the chilling silence on the part of the authorities and the powers that be on these criminal damage to public property, attacks, intimidation, seditious utterances and violence!

This is again a moral wrong!

I am appealing to all Malaysians to uphold our beloved nation in prayer at their respective houses of prayer that peace, fair play, ethics, good governance, justice and truth will always prevails over the evil that self serving politicians do!

Consumerist: Don’t Make Indians Pawn in Power Politics?

Consumerist: Don’t Make Indians Pawn in Power Politics?

I am surprised that lessons have not been learnt from previous episodes!

It is strange that the same outdated methods, promises, assurances and speeches of hope are been given when in reality based on previous engagement – nothing materialized post election!

After more than 55 years of independence where are Malaysian Indians in the economic ladder?

How much is their share of equity in the country?

Malaysian Indians are worst off today compared to the Indonesian economic migrants or for the matter others from Iran, Pakistan, Bangladesh and so forth!

So spar me the laughter when told that we are going to have another comprehensive plan aimed at “rescuing” the country’s Indian poor and marginalized!

I am not a firm believer in big bang round table conferences, attended by a cosmetically tailored attendees of the nation’s of ‘whose who, who has been or who hopes to be?’

I am aware that more than 30 per cent of the country’s Indian community are either living in poverty or in dismal conditions, suffering from debt problems and are unable to make ends meet.

I am aware that there have many such ‘big bang conferences outlines from so called think tanks, the publications of papers, memorandums and books’ and absolutely having no impact on the plight and future of the community!

Another ‘big bang’ conference and ego trip will not help either!

If one is honest – cut the chase, cut the spin, cut the attempt to platform your political agenda on the marginalized and struggling Malaysian Indians!

Cut the conferences and other wastage!

Go to the core!

Get Premier Najib Tun Razak to immediately make a policy announcement to take place with immediate effect!

Declare immediately an affirmative action program similar to that enjoyed by Bumiputras covering all forms of business, education, skills training, jobs, housing, micro credit and others!

Thanks to Hindraf – there is a new political awareness among the Malaysian Indians!

They will not make another mistake of voting based on empty promises no more!

The Malaysian Indians were among the founding fathers from time immemorial who slogged in the estates, they build roads, railways , administrative and professional services in the civil service, education and so forth and is it asking too much to be accorded the due recognition and dignity and not played around as pawns over conference meets?

Consumerist: Irene Fernandez Should Be Treated With Decency!

Consumerist: Irene Fernandez Should Be Treated With Decency!

Lessons have not be learnt?

Yes, I am flabbergasted and in fact, dumb founded like millions of Malaysians and those abroad in the global stage as to why prominent activist Irene Fernandez being singled out for investigation under the Sedition Act 1948?

The act criminalizes speech with “seditious tendency”, including that which would “bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against” the government or engender “feelings of ill-will and hostility between different races”

I know several others who have of late violating this act but still free but certainly not Irene!

And what has Irene said that demands such a response?

I am not saying this because I have known Irene all my life and she has known me since I was a baby in Sungei Petani, Kedah and we both hold each other very dearly!

I am stating this since I am also a Consumer and Human Rights Activist who is aware of the allegations that she refers to as it is not ‘such a secret’ as we want others to believe!

At the same token, first things first, may I ask ‘the powers that be’ what has happened to the over 15 police reports that Tenaganita claims they filed this year on behalf of migrant workers and over 10 different police reports filed by migrant workers themselves on various rights violations?

It is pertinent that one is not in a hurry to once again initiate any action against Irene!

In 1995 sadly she was charged with “publishing false information with malevolent intentions” under Section 8A of the PPDA (Printing, Presses and Publications Act) following the publication of a report entitled “Memorandum on abuses, acts of torture and inhuman treatment towards migrant workers in detention camps”.

I am advised that this report had contained allegations of ill-treatment of migrant populations, based on Irene’s detailed and comprehensive work on interviews with over 300 migrant workers.

The then Irene’s trial which began in 1996 was known to be the longest trial so far in the history of Malaysia and ended with her acquittal by the Kuala Lumpur High Court in 2008 a 13 year court battle!

For the latest claims in Jakarta Indonesia Irene has since come under very heavy fire locally for her criticism, which her detractors say had painted Malaysia in a negative light, was unpatriotic and detrimental to Malaysia’s bilateral relations with Indonesia.

For those of us having high level contacts with the Indonesian government, their media and NGO movement this is absolutely untrue!

The Indonesians are very well informed and have taken many a steps to show their response and disgust even before Irene set foot on Indonesian soil!

Their response which included huge demonstrations, burning and desecrating our flag and threatening Malaysians there!

My very humble advice to my friends in high places, is rather than continuing to do things which is perceived by a thinking Malaysian fora as ‘the old draconian way’ – alleged intimidation, persecution, harassment’, which is going to have severe implications to Malaysia from member UN countries as we also sit on the UN Human Rights Forum, and the coming GE13, it is time we addresses feedbacks, constructive criticisms and such reports by setting up an independent select committee of distinguished individuals having a unblemished track record of human rights service to address the issues brought up and seeking Irene’s continued assistance in getting at the truth of the claims and addressing the shortcomings that are!

Holistic and constructive engagement is the key!

Let us not go the old way but instead work together!

I am sure Irene @ Mummy, as I fondly call her, will certainly assist and oblige!
So how? Can talk? :O)
