Say No to Policed Internet

By Yow Hong Chieh (The Malaysian Insider)

Shah Alam MP Khalid Abdul Samad said the fact that website filtering was even being considered again showed how desperate the BN government was to stay in power.

“As far as Internet penetration is concerned... it’s hardly 30 per cent. Even with 30 per cent, they’re finding it hard to handle the issues raised on the Internet,” he said.

“I suppose that’s the last option they have if they want to survive the next election.” Khalid argued that BN has all this while been able to clamp down on all other forms of media, and so any attempt at Internet censorship would “definitely” be politically motivated.

However, the PAS man remained confident that such a move will not succeed and could only backfire on the government.

“I think the support for us will gather in strength,” he said.

“When they try to clamp down... people will know they can’t answer all the issues and the only way they can respond is to use force.”

Lawatan Kerja ke Kilang Carlsberg

Tajuk posting saya kali ini barangkali akan memeranjatkan sesetengah pihak. Lanjutan daripada perbincangan berhubung Terminal Bas Shah Alam, saya bersama beberapa Ahli Majlis MBSA telah melawat kilang Carlsberg pada hari Khamis 5 Ogos, jam 3 petang. Kami disambut oleh Dato’ Chin Voon Loong, Timbalan Pengarah Urusan Syarikat berkenaan. Beliau memberikan penjelasan dan latar belakang syarikat serta prestasi perniagaannya semenjak ianya mula beroperasi. Untuk makluman semua, kilang Carlsberg Shah Alam telah mula beroperasi pada tahun 1972, iaitu 38 tahun dahulu. Ia merupakan di antara kilang yang terawal di kawasan tersebut dan semasa ianya dibina, hanya hutan dan belukar di kelilingnya.
