Why listen to discredited politicians?

NOV 9 — What have Malaysians done to deserve discredited politicians like Shahrizat Jalil, Chua Soi Lek, Nazri Aziz, Mahathir Mohamad, Ibrahim Ali, Musa Aman, who still tell us anything or advise us on anything.

I mean, what moral standing, or for that matter any standing, does:

A) someone who shamelessly defends a family venture gone awry and then attempts to airbrush history;

B) someone who was a serial adulterer until being caught out.

C) someone whose defence of his son included industrial language and convoluted but ultimately unconvincing explanation of the political donation to Sabah Umno.

D) someone who does not stand for anything, too long. Check his statements when he was the prime minister and now, and there is an ocean of difference.

E) someone who is used to switching parties just to push his own agenda, dividing Malaysians along racial lines just to remain relevant.

F) someone who is not fussed about unknown sources of cash for his party and doesn’t care to explain it in the interest of transparency.

Why listen to them? They should all be ignored as they have lost their moral authority.

We need to listen to a better sort of people. Those who have integrity. Not these people. Consign them to history’s rubbish bin if possible.

    Consign them to history’s rubbish bin if possible.- End of quote

    After GE13, none of them will be left standing.
    They won’t even get to be in the opposition.

    We cannot ignore them.
    We must keep exposing them.

    Chua Soi Lek is a disgrace to the Malaysian Chinese..keep hero worshiping Najib.
    Nazri…pushed to the wall by Rafizi on corruptions is speaking like an idiot..with his defense.
    Mahathir…will keep on talking to divert attentions from massive corruptions…involving his son too.
    Ibrahim Ali….Musa Aman are stupid clowns.

      because if there is a group; whatever group, there is only one leader; a spokesperson for all, a representative for all; one who represents all. whether good or bad leader, there can only be 1.

    They cannot be ignored and just forgotten.Instead they must be hauled up and dragged to court for all the crimes they have committed once PR captures Putrajaya.

      Malaysians would love to know where their money has gone to, what was or is it use for and is there a way of getting back their money. The government should not just say they cannot give back the money owed but they must give back in one way or another. It is giving back. It is not giving as in you have the money and you give it. If the money is never yours in the first place.

    To be honest? Because they have power – and we are NOT a land of free minds and free will, in fact we are a society of conformist and entitlement where ANY power especially those with money sway our weak minds and weak will…

      Absolute free minds will cause havoc. At the same time, people’s voice must be listened to. Not selective voices. Not just one or two. Money is powerful. No money, no honey, dear. Yes money, yes almost everything.

    Make an exception, talk of Dr. Mahatir. He has been silent lately and I fear he may not be feeling well.
    Happy Deepavali to you, Dr. and all Malaysians, especially our Hindu Brothers and Sisters. God Bless You All !
