My biggest mistake

That was what Abdullah said about underestimating the internet. 'We thought the newspapers and television were suppoosed to be important, but young people were looking st SMSes and blogs.' Abdullah forgot to add that he thought with all the control and skewed reporting in the official media people will lap them up and believe them. He underestimated the intelligence of the people. The people are like sesame seed, given up reading the official mouth pieces. If sesame seed is an indication of what the younger readers are like, the msm is losing ground and a grip on them. While Abdullah has turned on the charm offensive to win the bloggers in cyberspace instead of clamping down on them, what would happen to paradise when the next GE comes? Perhaps they will be stomping away confidently and happily.

i think the issue is not abt cyberspace really, but the way things are done there.

They would be stomping away at the opposition and hip-hopping with the voters. But of course the 66.66% are buying all this up, so 'what to do? It's happened'

You will never hear the words 'my biggest mistake' from our overlords. At the most they will say 'my most honest mistake'. After that they will say 'what to do? it's happened'.

Well said beanie. Mahathir remain the most autocratic, corrupted and the worst PM Malaysia ever had. He destroyed all the insitutions that British had built for us. He should be charged for his crimes and should spend his twightlight years in a jail cell and ponder over what he had done.marlin212
