A place where the true facets of Malaysian politics are talked about and discussed not by the politicians but by the people whose lives are affected by the politicians, the people of Malaysia.

Issues like the murder of the Mongolian Model Altantuya Shaariibuu and the accusations of Razak Baginda, a former political analyst with the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who many claimed is related to the case. The trial is on-going with Razak still under charged with abetting two police officers who is accused of murdering the model and subsequently blowing her body to pieces using C4 explosives.

Issues arises like the petrol hikes have caused a major uproar among citizens not so much about the petrol hikes but more so are talked about on the issues involving the hike. The government of Malaysia today are being said to have not done enough to keep the price low, thereby increasing the people’s burden. Words of advice like ‘changing the lifestyle’ of the people by the Malaysia Prime Minister are being shot back for being too naïve. The people want to know where the profits of the national petroleum company Petronas have been channeled to if not to help curb the rising price of fuel. The former Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his dissatisfaction on his successor and how he claims the Primer to be a puppet to his son-in-law Khairy Jamalluddin, who has many corporate directorship under his belt. The former prime minister, who has alleged to have tried to control the judicial system too are being talked about, but many voiced that the past is gone, and more focus should be put on the present, which many believe that the government is incapable in managing Malaysia’s economy and administration.
