August 29, 2018 5:09 PM The time has come for a Malay right-wing party
DAP has asked MCA to leave Barisan Nasional and join Pakatan Harapan. PKR has warned Malaysians that Malay politics is becoming more right wing.

August 24, 2018 4:51 PM Mahathir gostarn-ing on ECRL?
As I had written in an earlier post, Mahathir did NOT succeed in his attempts to persuade Chinese leaders to accept him withdrawing from projects contracted with China without any penalties.At most, China might have allowed a longer period for Malaysia to settle the compensations.

August 21, 2018 11:07 AM Has Robert Kuok lost his bite?

August 19, 2018 11:47 AM A history lesson on Malaysia-China relations for Mahathir
Today, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said Malaysia and China have had relations for 2,000 years. That would more or less have been during the height of the Roman Empire and around the time of the birth of Jesus Christ. Actually, Malays first went to China to trade around 300 BC, which means 200 years before the rise of the Roman Empire. China first started 85
