Malaysiakini team in Parliament filed this report http://www1.malaysiakini.com/news/86051 headlined :No confidence motion rejection,walkout staged. The Speaker Pandikar disallowed a no-confidence debate against PM Badawi, resulting in a walk-out by opposition Pakatan Rakyat MPs. So in his animal farm in Sabah he must have been given the right signals from his cows and his sheep.
A retired government officer said that the hive of activities happening in Malaysian politics is like a “Broadway” show. He went on to say that it reminds him of a single by the group called “The Jam” who wrote this song,’A police car and and a screaming siren.days of speed and a slow time mondays and the lamplights blinking. Why…..The title of the song is called “That’s Entertainment” Our Politics is much ado about nothing and making the Police panic. Or is it.?
Much as I want to condemn the police for all these but there must have been informed that there are “planned” protestors going to Parliament. Pro-active on their part but it should not be too hyped out until the Star had this .”Police roadblocks leading into the city caused massive jams throughout Monday morning.” The Home Minister was quick to offer his apologies,(gentleman of a man on his part) that the operations were taken in the interests of public security” Of course I did say that the Lioness will “ROAR” and she did too.
The speaker obviously had this to say before today’s Parliament seating that he wrote to Dr.Azizah to reject the emergency motion in the chambers. “How can I allow something that does not fall within this SO?
- The opposition had filed their emergency motion for a resolution under SO18 but that standing order only allows for debates.
- It is not the proper standing order
- 18(1) and (2) does not allow for vote of no-confidence to be carried out
- The emergency motion requesting for a resolution which leads to voting should be filed under SO 27.
His reasoning is that if he allowed the motion to be debated he will be like a “fool”.It is like a person who had committed raped but was charged for murder. It’s a debatable decision as any and its up to you to interpret the Speakers arrival of using the “Parliamentary laws” accorded to him. You have your say…
The Lioness and her co-ordinated group of MPs staged a walk out since they were not given the opportunity to carry the voice of the public to the August House. “We’re disappointed and we regret that this has happened.This is why we walked out. They disrespect the rules and the voice of the people that we carry into the house,” she said.
The Pakatan group will need to re-evaluate their strategy,the political damage has been done eventhough we know they did not manage to get the motion debated as requested by them for 1 hour. As for the BN they just have to remember that you need to “Walk Your Talk” as the people and the whole world is still buying the tickets for this movie,”Malaysiabolehland.” We need to make real progress instead of running on the same spot. The Speakers cows have “Moo” while his Sheep has “Baa”. Got my point…….!!!!
