I have always said that Malaysia is not known as BolehLand for nothing.
Everything is possible, but usually the negative, silly or downright unacceptable.
And just to confirm this observation, we have a minister who no sooner than he had been appointed the Home Minister then he somehow discovered that the country belonged to his grandfather, telling Malaysians who were not happy with the outcome of GE13 and the electoral system here, to just pack up and leave the country.
We may also be the only country in the world whose citizens can't move around freely with the anomalous situation of the East Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak.
Even members of Parliament are not exempted
We must be the laughing stock of the world. Najib would do well to stop making a fool of himself with his pledge to make Malaysia "the best democracy of the world"
BUT exactly what has the chief minster of Sabah got to be afraid of Nurul?
Exactly what have Najib, Umno/Bn got to be afraid of allowing a citizen of the country from visiting the East Malaysian state?
And one who is no less than a duly elected member of Parliament than Najib is?
Clearly it had nothing to do with Nurul being a security threat to Sabah.
One would have thought that foreigners indiscriminately being granted citizenship in exchange for votes as the ongoing RCI in Sabah on the issue reveals, would pose a greater security threat to the state than a duly elected MP on a visit to celebrate Pesta Kaamatan with Sabahans.
So it must have to do with politics and the fear that Umno/Bn would lose one of their two "fixed deposit" states were Nurul, and by extension, opposition MPs allowed to travel freely to Sabah.
That shows that UMNO/Bn, Najib and all the rest of the brood know that GE13 was a close call and that they can't afford to lose Sabah and Sarawak, otherwise that would mean their end.
But how dirty can that be, not to allow a citizen of the country to travel freely just because of political reasons having nothing to do with being a security threat?
You might as well ban political participation and just install yourselves the government in perpetuity.
That will save everyone the hassle and pretense of democracy, let alone one that is supposedly or soon "the best democracy in the world"
