Najib's eve of Malaysia Day speech announcing scrapping of the ISA and some other draconian laws has attracted a motley mix of scepticism from the oppositions.
Here what they say:
Some unknown idiot:
Wall Street Journal:
Lim Guan Heng:
GEORGE TOWN, Sept 16 — Lim Guan Eng today expressed disappointment that the government plans to replace the Internal Security Act (ISA) with two new security laws, and argued that the reforms announced by Datuk Seri Najib Razak last night fell short of being meaningful.Saying he welcomed the prime minister’s move to repeal the ISA
The Gutter Press:
To mark Malaysia Day, Prime Minister Najib Razak sprung a shock raft of reforms that upon closer scrutiny led nowhere. Civil society and legal experts were left dumbfounded at his audacity and inability to learn from hard knocks of the past that the Rakyat or populace was no longer so easily fooled by the superficial and the cosmetic.
