MARCH 3 — You are off the hook, Syed Hamid Albar. You are no longer the worst home minister Malaysia has had. And for that you can thank your fellow politician from Johor, Hishammuddin Hussein.
Syed Hamid, you will forever be remembered as the minister who ordered the arrest of a journalist under the ISA for her own protection! You also ignited the Allah debate by not allowing the Malay section of the Herald to use the word Allah.
But you have nothing on Hishammuddin. The man is clueless about everything. He looks like a tourist in Lahad Datu and actually thinks that it is reassuring for Malaysians to hear that he will not leave Sabah until the incursion situation has been resolved.
Can someone get him out of there and allow the police or army to handle this grave situation? His handling of the incursion has been a joke as have the portrayal of the Sulu fighters.
Everything is under control. We are trying to solve this thing without bloodshed…and the donkeys at the mainstream media played along, not even mentioning that the intruders were heavily armed until much later.
Everything Hishammuddin has touched has been a failure, from dealing with the cow-head protests to promoting tough action against Bersih rallygoers.
In any other country, he would have been sacked by the prime minister.
But sadly not in Malaysia.
