Damned if you do, and damned if you dont!
For Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, it is a case of damned if you and damned if you don't! But someone has to do it.
I am talking about scrapping the two Acts--ISA and Banishment-- deemed draconian and previous prime ministers have considered these acts as a bane to their offices.
However, these two acts serve the purpose that is to make the country safe from elements constantly trying to overthrow the government of the day and disrupt and to tear our unique social fabrics.
ISA and the Banishment Acts will be replaced by other acts that will serve the purpose of keeping our country together, when passed these two acts will be in the same line as the US Patriot Act and the British and Singapore version of the ISA and rest assured when enacted these acts will behave accordingly....no more the carte blanche ISA!
So draconian is that I could not imagined I would be restricted to live in a small district like Machang, for example, and I would not be allowed to step out of the perimeter for say five years, and if did my sentence will be doubled?
I would prefer the proverbial US justice system of wearing an electronic ankle bracelet and this way we track down the "animals" where ever they would be roaming!
