May 2010 bring better days.

The Malaysian Nazi Programme

It's disturbing to know that our tax money is being spent to fund a programme that encourages and breeds racism and bigotry.

Even my Malay colleagues, most of whom are the targets for this programme are utterly disgusted.

The sad truth is that while we thought the Third Reich had been gone and buried, it has been resurrected and is very much alive in Malaysia.
