policy note:
This is an independent and private website. I have no political agenda nor affiliations with any party or group whatsoever, so the selection is done without fear or favour, though this is always subservient to impartiality and objectivity. (Also I have no masters to obey, since I am not on anyone's payroll.)
It is to be hoped that this collection of selected articles and comments on Malaysia and its leaders (both favourable AND unfavourable) will be representative and encompass different points of view thus providing a true and balanced insight into today's Malaysia, with all its strengths and weaknesses.
The reproduction of the various articles should not be construed as an endorsement of the views contained therein by the site-owner. They are reproduced per se (including the heading above the article) and without any editing. In any case it goes without saying that the site-owner is not to be held responsible for the content or viewpoint of any external site that might appear here or elsewhere. ("A free press is one that prints a dictator's speech but doesn't have to." -- Laurence J. Peter).
note to authors/publishers:
As direct links to newspaper articles are not possible (since these have a tendency to enter the archives within a few days of publication) the only way to make them readily available is to reproduce them the way I did. Any request by the publisher, writer or the person involved for an article to be removed will be complied with immediately.
