Confirmed, Taiping Malays will not vote DAP again....ever!

The Taiping Malays are not that stupid after all! Your time is up mo!

We spent three days going around Taiping we spoke to village headmen, religious leaders and generally Malays at coffee shops and anywhere we can find talking to them about the coming general elections.
Well, our finding is this, the Malays almost 40% of voters in Taiping will not vote for DAP, which they considered now to be anti-Malays, anti-Monarchy, anto-Sultan and they are still sore that under previous PKR Mentri Besar, many Chinese, not Malays, were given a TOL lease land for 999 years!!!!!
"Kita tak tahu macam mana ini boleh jadi," said Pak Wahab, not his real name of course.  Basically he said how could this happened.
Malays villagers said in the absence of Umno candidate, they will most definitely vote for other BN candidate, but never, and never said Pak Wahab the Malays will vote for the opposition DAP.
"Termasuk lak calun pembangkang lain (Including other opposition candidates)," he said.
Well, unlike previous visit to Taiping during the last general elections when half Chinese, Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin, a short-lived mentri besarof Perak in 2008, the people of Taiping are more accommodating now when talking about Najib Razak and the BN government.
"Memang China DAP Perak ni memang biadap dan kurang ajar (Its true these DAP Chinese from Perak are both uncouth and not well brought up).  Undi kita kali ni akan lain sikit (our voting will be slightly different this time, tengok lah," said Pak Wahab.
It appears as compared to previous elections, Malays will now come out in droves this time to kicked out Nga Kor Ming, I have no problem with that!

Yes! Stop the DAP-sponsored Taliban from dominating our parliament!

DAP Finally Declares Support for Hudud ala PAS!

Malaysians will have to decide whether they want to be deceived by the chauvinist Chinese-dominated DAP urging Chinese-Malaysians to vote for PAS in an areas where the Malays do not have clear majority.
This the DAP did knowing if PAS dominates the parliament for sure hudud  will become the law of the land and Chinese girls will have to wear baju kurung and hijab otherwise they will be raped as encouraged by PAS Nik Aziz.  Read here....

Stop the lies in its latest blog said the cat is finally out of the bag when it was indicated Lim Kit Siang and gang, except for Karpal Singh who said over my dead  body over hudud, encourages Malaysians to vote for PAS knowing if in power this Malaysian Taliban political party will implement I repeating myself? I think I did, but Malaysians need to be reminded again and again for they easily forget that they had better not compromise with what we have cherish till now, peace and prosperity!

Still no sign of a shadow cabinet?

Yeah right, they loathe each other but join together just to destroy this peaceful country for their own dangerous reasons! 
A bunch of Parvenu, we have a sodomist, a gambler, a battered wife, a mullah who says rape is acceptable, a chauvinist who takes orders from PAP!

(An old article, but not that old, that is worth reading: Pasquale)

By John Selva

OPEN TO FISSURES: Striking a balance between the opposition parties is a tough call, writes John Selva

THERE was a sense of déjà vu on June 5 when Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim took to the stage at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Malaysia -- a feeling not so much of anticipation as knowing expectation.

The man with one all-consuming ambition -- to become prime minister -- was facing the battle-weary international media. Surely questions would be asked about the policies that he would implement if he were voted into office. As it turned out, the evening followed an all-too-familiar pattern, with Anwar left unchallenged to espouse his view that Pakatan Rakyat would coast to victory without giving any real reasons as to why this was a good thing for Malaysians.

For someone of supposedly strong opinions and beliefs -- none stronger than his overinflated self-belief -- Anwar has a habit of undermining the things he claims to stand for. Take openness and transparency, for example.

Here he is responding to calls to reveal a shadow cabinet ahead of the general elections: "It is difficult to name the shadow cabinet because we do not know which party gets what and how many seats. The representation in cabinet will be reflective of our performance in the election." He followed up this inadequate response by noting that never before had a shadow cabinet been announced in Malaysia. Well, so much for bold reforms.

It is unclear why Anwar believes a shadow cabinet can only be named once an election outcome is known, since by nature, a shadow cabinet can only be formed in opposition. This, in turn, begs the question of whether Anwar understands that establishing a shadow cabinet and announcing a cabinet are two separate processes.

When people go to the polling station, they will be voting not for a shadow cabinet but for a member of parliament or a party. Perhaps the most important question is, why is Anwar reluctant to name his shadow cabinet.

The task of a shadow cabinet is, of course, to "shadow" the actual cabinet, to ask them questions and to hold them to account. Since few in the opposition have been in office, this might be a good way for them to gain experience on policies and ministerial portfolios. The truth is, by naming a shadow cabinet, Anwar would open himself up in more ways than he would like.

FIRST, he would have to make a number of decisions, from picking the right people for the job to striking a balance between the component parties in Pakatan. This would leave him open to criticism, something he clearly bridles at, and that simply isn't Anwar's style. Time after time, he would tell audiences what they want to hear rather than stand up for what he believes;

SECOND, a shadow cabinet delegates responsibilities between senior figures in the opposition for the simple reason that one person cannot be expected to keep abreast of all the details and be the party voice in every area. But, again, such power sharing doesn't chime with Anwar's autocratic opposition; and;

THIRD, with such stark divisions in the party, there is little chance of Anwar naming a shadow cabinet without creating more fissures. Just look at Pakatan's position on hudud. Despite having supposedly agreed on a stance last year, Pas and DAP continue to squabble over whether or not hudud will become law under Pakatan. The extent of the disunity has been widely noted, with Clive Kessler, emeritus professor of University of New South Wales, recently remarking that if Pakatan were to win the election, "they would be at one another's throats" within a week.

Possibly the most difficult of all is whether there would be roles for Parti Keadilan Rakyat president Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail or vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar in the shadow cabinet. Dr Wan Azizah doesn't have a seat, so if Anwar named her in his shadow cabinet, she would have to be made a senator. Appointing Nurul Izzah wouldn't be quite so hard. However, as someone who is at pains to express his concerns over Barisan Nasional's alleged "cronyism", perhaps Anwar is worried the world will cotton on to his desire to turn his family into a ruling dynasty?

People will ultimately make their own decision about whether Anwar lives up to his self-anointed title of "The Voice of Democracy in Malaysia", but for someone who has put few checks and balances in place even within his party, this epaulette hardly seems fitting. Surely, if he is committed to transparency, he should answer the questions that are being fielded rather than continuing to claim that all will be revealed if and when he comes to power.

If you read this, Anwar, the whole point of politics is that you tell the voters what you stand for before and not after the election.

Najib dares DAP to contest in any Malay constituency..

The man said it!
(Article reproduced from MSN news)

Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak was reported in the New Straits Times as having said that Malays were ‘fed up’ with the opposition Democratic Action Party, one of three parties in the Pakatan Rakyat opposition.
"If DAP is a multiracial party as their leaders claim, I dare them to stand in a Malay constituency. You know Malays have had enough of DAP... all are rubbish," the New Straits Times quoted Najib at the opening of Barisan Nasional component party MCA’s 59th annual party general assembly.
The prime minister took the time to comment on the state of affairs of the socialist-leaning DAP.
Najib addressed the matter of former DAP national vice-chairman Tunku Abdul Aziz Ibrahim’s disagreements with the party leadership over the Bersih 3.0 protests as an example of DAP not being as democratic as they claim.

According to the New Straits Times, Najib also said that the fundamentals of the country, based on the Federal Constitution, should never be questioned.
The opening of the MCA annual general assembly was attended by some of the biggest names in the coalition, including MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek, deputy president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, and leaders from other component parties, including Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor , Gerakan president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon, MIC president Datuk Seri G. Palanivel.
Najib said one could question the fairness and policies of the government but should never question the fundamentals of the country which were based on the Constitution.

Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim is one fu%ked-up Malaysian, let's face it!!

Najib flanked by Benigno Aquino and MILF chief during the signing ceremony to end the war in Southern Philippine.

Sa orang pemimpin Melayu yang tersepit yang bernama Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim (BABI) tidak sekali langsung pun menyebut penglibatan Malaysia dan Perdana Menteri Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak dalam utusan beliau menyambut kejayaan perjanjian damai di antara kerajaan Filipino dengan Moto Islamic Liberation Frongt (MILF).

He said: "Pakatan Rakyat welcomes the recent peace agreement that was signed between the Government of Philippines and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).  Our congratulations to President Benigno S Aquino III and MILF led by its Chairman, Al Haj Murad Ebrahim through the efforts of Dean Marvic Leonen, Chairman of the Philippine Negotiation Panel for having worked together to forge a new step toward peace with the signing of the framework agreement."  Read more of his stupid statement here!

BABI can only spit and shit on his own country of birth, and in a very loose Minangkabau parlance, he is of a low breed and the worst kind of parvenu that the politics of this country has ever produced.
He may not like the system or the government but he could have chosen to be magnanimous in the hour of triumph by praising Malaysia's involvement, but he chose to ignore the role of Malaysia and Najib  in ending a bloody strife that took over 150,000 lives in southern Philippines.

Kalau keturunan tu tak baik kita senang nampak, macam mana yang kita nampak dalam perutusan beliau!

Even the White House acknowledged the serious involvement of Malaysian government under the supervision of Prime Minister Najib Razak, in a White House press statement last week. 

Statement by the White House Press Secretary on the Agreement Between the Government of the Philippines and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, also acknowledging Malaysia's role.. read more here

Laws are there for a reason

Traffic automated enforcement system

A blogger muststopthis wrote: "How is it that once Malaysians cross the border into Singapore, and they become traffic abiding drivers but once the crossed back to Johor, they become instant road bullies?
 The problem lies with the way we go on about our day to day affairs. Some throw rubbish out knowing that unless they are caught, it is ok. That gradually grows into beating the lights, and driving way over the speed limit. It certainly does not help that there are VIP's out there setting bad examples.
So who is to fault then? With MPs like Ipoh Timur and Seri Gading making claims that a law imposing system like the AES is 'hurtful' for the taxpayers, then are they insinuating that we do away with the need to enforce laws altogether?

If systems such as these have proven to be successful in enforcing traffic laws, then I say go ahead, after all it is supposed to make our streets safer.
Read more here..."

Road fatalities are on the increase in this country, and in the capital especially.  Malaysians do not respect the laws, especially the traffic laws.  Is it because at the back of their minds they perhap thought they can kowtim with the traffic police or get a discount for a ticket?
The time is now and we must make Malaysians understand that if they do not respect the law it is not going to work.  I personally saw a car hit a  biker when squeezing the lemon, beating the amber light that is. The worse part is the car just sped off.  With any good system like this proven AES, this motorist could have been caught for his car would have been noted very clearly.
If Malaysians cannot seem to want to respect the law, well they have to be forced to do it for the sake of others.
As for Sri Gading BN six terms MP, Datuk Aziz, you are not worthy of a lawmaker since you are not able to see the wisdom of this new system meant to reduce pain and death.
BTW YB what have you done for your constituency lately or for the last six terms?
I can understand chauvinist DAP LGE for going against the system, but you. well as Rockybru said you are just a moron that the prime minister should just drop  from the list.

Ambiga told by Australia, Malaysia is fair country for everyone...

Again Bersih de-facto leader Ambiga Sreenevasan told the world Malaysian government, now under Prime Minister Datuk Sri Najib Tun Razak, is corrupt and that it fixes elections, including general elections, just to win.
Today she told Australian parliament that Australia must send political observers to Malaysia to ensure the coming general elections in this country is done clean without cheating and ballot boxes not being stuffed.
She is telling tall tales about her country of birth  in Melbourne
Well, here is a scoop, she was told by the Australian that if Malaysian government was indeed being led by a bunch of crooked politicians it would have won a 2/3 majority during last general elections which saw opposition party ruling winning many states in Malaysia and number of opposition MPs have increased in parliament. So there.  Read here!
The Australian government said if invited by the Malaysian  government then observers would be sent.
Here is the thing, how can these people like Ambiga, a Malaysian citizen, going around the country and the world like his mentor Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim telling lies and bad things about their country then they can sleep well at night?!
So this persecuted and suppressed member of a Malaysian Indian community, by the name of Ambiga, will fly home form Canberra where his persecuted non-Malay driver will be  waiting for her in a spiffy and expensive car then will drive her to her multi-million ringgit home in a posh middle-class ghetto!
I really sympathise with Ambiga for having a hard life and living in a country where majority Muslim-Malays go out every night discriminating against non-Muslims!
At the end of the day no-one will believe what people like her will say because the record speaks for it self....Frankly we are all tired and fed up with ingrates like her!

We must also get rid of our own Taliban!!

 Pervesion of "Islam" in Pakistan as shown by these Pakistani-Taliban board a school bus shot a beautiful Malala in the head and the neck just because she wants to own her own body and mind!

ON TUESDAY afternoon, Malala Yousafzai was a 14-year-old girl riding home on a school bus. Now, after a masked gunman apparently boarded her bus, asked for her by name and shot her in the head and neck, she is fighting for her life. Malala was targeted by the Pakistani Taliban because for the past three years she has spoken out for the rights of all girls to become educated.
After this despicable shooting, a Taliban spokesman said his organisation considered Malala's crusade for education rights an ''obscenity'' and accused her of ''propagating'' Western culture. If she survives, the group promises to try again to kill her.

Once bitten twice shy......!

Once bitten twice shy, twice bitten never try.....thrice bitten? Well, if that happens to all the Malays that will vote and fall for a songkok wearing chauvinist opposition leaders again...thern we all can die!

I am posting part of Syed Akhbar Ali's Outste the Box,below, and I think it is a brilliant piece read more here...  digest it for it makes sense for us to understand on how the opposition parties think:-

All kinds of wild coffee shop talk is floating around, imagining a post-BN Malaysia. Here is some of the coffee shop talk. I call it wild coffee shop talk because all this will never happen in Malaysia.  Our country will burn down first in irreparable racial and religious conflict before these wild ideas ever see the light of day in this country. 

I am not debating the merits or demerits of these ideas. Some of these ideas are perhaps worth pondering. But in today's scenario these are just too explosive. This is playing with fire. Here is what I heard about a post-BN Malaysia :   

  1. Christianity shall also be recognised as one of the official religions in Malaysia
  2. Good Friday and Easter shall become public holidays
  3. The azan (call to prayer) can be heard inside the mosque only
  4. Majlis Agama Islam will be disbanded
  5. There will be a Menteri Gereja (?) in Cabinet to oversee christian issues 
  6. Religion will not be allowed in political parties so PAS will  be deregistered  
  7. Children's religion can only be determined after they are 18 years old
  8. Malaysia will become a republic - the Republic of Malaysia.
  9. The Negaraku will be changed
  10. Penang, Melaka, Sabah and Sarawak can have non-Muslim Governors
  11. The IGP and Chief of Armed Forces can be non-Muslim
  12. The Royal Malay Regiment will be disbanded 
  13. The Civil Service will be reduced by 40%
  14. English and Mandarin shall also be official languages
  15. Chin Peng will be welcomed back and made a "Tun".
  16. MARA will be disbanded
  17. Kemas, BTN, MKN will be shut down
  18. Pekida, Perkasa, Gabungan Graduan Melayu will be labelled 'terrorist organisations'
1 to 5 are just not feasible. 6 should have been done decades ago. The Indonesians have done it. 10 and 11 are nothing new. We have had an Indian who was Chief of Navy. We have Indian Vice Admirals now - in Maritim Malaysia.  (There is also a very sick Tamil who is a Rear Admiral and leader of the Pakatan). A 'mamak' was Prime Minister for 22 years. Big deal. 

15 is stupid. 

From a practical angle, these things are not feasible in Malaysia. This is just wild coffee shop talk. So why talk about things like these? Simple : to incite peoples' emotions. To get the angry vote. This is playing with fire. 

But coming to the DAP and the church, who is the 'flinger' and who is the 'flingee'? Leopards dont change spots. They can change their initials.

Yes Iran's clandestine Quds Force, like Mossad, is operating in M'sia!

May the force be with us?
A while back  Barking Magpie wrote about how under Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim when he was Umno Youth Chief sponsored a group of Umno Youth members to a Libyan desert for arms training and for what we have now idea, may be until now.
Yes, for sometime now we are also aware of Iranian Shia influence in Malaysia, some of the Arab Restaurants are even a good cover for covert activity of these Arab and Irianian political activities.
We also know for a long time now intelligence agencies like Israeli's Mossad are monitoring them.
Personally I believe these groups are in direct touch with many Pakatan and Pas leaders, BABI is well aware of these contacts.
The question is what is the government doing to curb such activity.  Again, personally the fact that this country, my beloved country, is getting too Arabic and Iranian is too much to be desired.  This must stop now!!
Yes the bits below is taken from Outsyed the Box that the relevant government agencies, such as the Research Department, Special Branch and other security agencies must read so they can improve on their thinking and brain power to deduce.operates in Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Gaza (possibly Malaysia as well).........
  • the [Iranian] ambassador in Baghdad is a Quds Force member. 
  • carries out variety of clandestine activities beyond Iran’s borders. 
  • organize, train, equip, finance and direct Shi’ite, sometimes Sunni, Islamist networks,” 
  • trying to help Bashar Assad, Iran’s sole regional ally, survive.
  • “hundreds from Quds Force in Syria, including officers and soldiers,” 
  • in Lebanon provide Hezbollah training, tactical advice, logistics, bunker construction.
  • “very loyal to the Iranian supreme leader,” 
  • Ahmadinejad has lost control of Quds Force to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei,” 
  • Quds Force experiencing a drop in its abilities.
  • high-profile failures in Thailand, Georgia and Azerbaijan
  • Iran’s chief instrument for wielding regional influence 
This is the clandestine arm of Iranian power projection overseas - like the US Green Berets (now also the SEALS) or the British SAS.  Well if they have left Syria last week that does not augur well for the longevity of Bashar Assad in Syria.

(There are an estimated 125,000 Iranians in Malaysia. There are also Malaysian Shias. Considering that it is Iranian State policy to support and promote the Shia religion all around the world, I will be most surprised if there are NO Qods Force members operating in Malaysia. Hisham wake up!!

The world must be ready for the next new president of the USA!

In the beginning we thought he could have change the world, but after four years his promises on bringing US soldiers in Afghanistan back home was just a political talk and the closing of Guantanamo prison in Cuba was just that -  an empty promises.
Barack Obama can blame the sins from the previous administration under George Bush Jr that he had to deal with, but for four years he was THE president of the world greatest and powerful country and within that 4 years he could have exercise his full executive power to bring about changes.
Watching him debating with Mitt Romney confirmed my suspicion that his answers during the debates were full of rhetoric and semantic and not convincing  enough for Americans who would want him to win the second terms.
Well, the small and insignificant countries like Malaysia, to the eyes of the mighty USA, will be helpless to do anything if the US under Romney, together with Israel, attack Iran for example. 
For this we have to wait and see if Romney is actually a country bumpkin as portrayed by the media or a real suave and savvy US president.
But, I suspect he is a smart cookie, and frankly for me I am tired of Obama and his star studded status!

In so many ways our leaders should have been like Uncle Ho!

Ho Chi Minh

By Syed Akbar Ali

This is a short story. It has significance to what is going on in our country.
Ho Chi Minh was the great Vietnamese freedom fighter, liberator, statesman and hero of the oppressed peoples. Ho Chi Minh died in 1969, when I was nine years old. 

Also known as 'Uncle Ho', his birth name was Nguyen Sinh Cung. Ho Chi Minh who was of Chinese ancestry translates to 'He Who Enlightens'.
At that time the US was bombing Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia back to the Stone Age. It was called the Vietnam War. I clearly remember watching the ‘Dunia Di Sana Sini’ program on Television Malaysia (no RTM yet at that time) which would show black and white footage of American GIs using flamethrowers to burn attap huts belonging to Vietnamese villagers. 
Till today I cannot figure out how attap huts in Vietnam were a threat to the security and vital interests of the ‘Yewnited States of Americky’ That is one evil and adulterous generation (Matthew 14:6-8) which is still dancing around the fire in the Yewnited States. 
At that time the Americans successfully brainwashed all of us into believing that the Vietnamese were bad people led by an ugly monster called Ho Chi Minh. So like the simple, Third World, Mat Salleh wannabe bumpkins that we were (and many many still are) we all chorused the American line that our own neighbors were monsters.
The French colonials started taking control of Vietnam in the 1860s. By 1883 the entire country was a full fledged French colony. 
Under French colonial rule Vietnamese were prohibited from travelling outside their districts without identity papers. Freedom of expression and organisation were restricted. Land was alienated to French companies and the number of landless peasants grew. So people like Ho Chi Minh started fighting back. 
Fastforward (because this is a short story), Ho Chi Minh kicked the butt of the French in Dien Bien Phu in 1952 and sent them home in crates. 
Way before that on 2 September 1945, half a million Vietnamese people gathered in Hanoi to hear Ho Chi Minh read the Vietnamese Declaration of Independence. The Vietnamese had thrown off the foreign invader.
One of the first things that Ho Chi Minh did as the leader of a free and independent Vietnam was to REPUDIATE ALL TREATIES AND AGREEMENTS which had been entered into by Vietnam under French Colonial Rule. 
Not only Ho Chi Minh but in many newly independent countries (usually non British Commonwealth) an independent people refused to recognize treaties and agreements which the colonials had forced them to sign at the point of a gun or without the consent of the people. So whatever the French colonial power had signed on behalf of Vietnam was not recognized by the Vietnamese people. 
Why? Apa pasal? Because those treaties were NOT signed by a free and independent people.
I wanted to Blog about this because just a few days ago I was having breakfast with some friends who started quoting the terms of the Pangkor Treaty (! ! !) to support their side of the argument about the Perak issues. 
At the time of our Independence, we should have taken a leaf out of Ho’s book (it is really not too late) and repudiated all the treaties and agreements which were signed under the British.
For example, Stamford Raffles found disgruntled seafarers from the Riau Islands, played politics with the Dutch and got “a” Sultan to rent space on Temasek Island to the British East India Company (NOT TO THE BRITISH SOVEREIGN GOVERNMENT OK).

Raffles did not work for the British Government but he worked for the British East India Company, a company listed on the London Stock Exchange.  Stamford Raffles was just like an earlier version of a Somali pirate. And at the time of our “Independence” in 1957, all this had happened just over 100 years before. (Much less time than Nga and Ngeh’s 999 year leasehold titles granted recently in Perak). 
Then later this slick little piece of piracy by Raffles was ‘formalised’ by the British Sovereign through the Colonial Office.  And many people think that Stamford Raffles braved the seas, sailed out here from England and claimed an uncivilized, uninhabited island for the British Government. Wrong. 
First of all Raffles was already chilling his heels in Penang. Long before he “founded” Singapore in 1819, Raffles was assistant secretary at the British East India company’s “administration” in Penang in 1805.
Then in 1818 Raffles became “lieutenant governor of Bencoolen” fighting the Dutch who were trying to grab the whole of South East Asia. Before that Raffles was appointed “governor general” for the British India Company in Java (1811-16).
In 1818 Raffles sailed hurriedly from Bencoolen to India, and convinced Lord Hastings of the need for the British to open a port on Temasek Island. He had already identified Temasek Island. (It was NOT some unknown, uninhabited, alien island that fell out of the Matrix movie).
But more importantly why did Raffles suddenly panic in 1818? He was the East India Company’s “secretary” in Penang in 1805, made it to Company “governor” in Java in 1811, became Company “lieutenant governor” for Bencoolen in 1816-1818. Why panic in 1818 to open another port? 
In 1818 the Dutch occupied Riau. The Riau Islands were also the domain of the Sultan of Johore. The Dutch then claimed that ALL the territories of the Sultan of Johore (Riau Islands, the Karimun Islands, mainland Johor, Temasek, parts of Negeri Sembilan, parts of Pahang) were all within their sphere of influence.
This was the cause of Raffles panic. 
And coincidentally, Raffles was in Penang at this relevant time, chilling his heels possibly at his favorite plantation bungalow (not exactly braving the wild oceans for King and Country). 

From Penang, Raffles dispatched Colonel William Farquhar to Temasek. Disregarding orders to await further instructions from the British East India Company in Calcutta, Raffles slipped out of Penang around 20th January, 1819 aboard a private trading ship and caught up with Farquhar. 
On January 28, 1819, Raffles and Farquhar anchored near the mouth of the Singapore River. There was no dramatic arrival on a wild and exotic, uninhabited island that had just fallen out of the Matrix movie.
The following day, the two men went ashore on Temasek Island to meet Temenggong Abdu'r Rahman, who granted provisional permission for the British East India Company to establish a trading post on the island, subject to the approval of Hussein. Hussein ? Who was Hussein? Read on. 

( I hope you can see me laughing here – what in heaven’s name is ”granted provisional permission” – did the Speaker of the Temasek Assembly meet under a tree too, on the uninhabited, exotic, wild and mysterious Temasek island?) 
Well the kiasu Raffles, began immediately to unload Bengali sepoys, set up tents and hoist the British flag. The first British meal prepared on “wild, exotic, undiscovered, uninhabited” Temasek was probably chappati and fried ikan kembong supplied by the ever friendly local Malays. 
Raffles then told Temenggong Abdu'r Rahman to send for “Hussein” in Riau, who (not having much else to do ) arrived within a few days. Then the next event that happened was a classic example of British piracy which makes the pirates in present day Somalia look like incompetent sea urchins.
Acknowledging Hussein” as the rightful Sultan of Johore, on February 6, 1819 Raffles signed a treaty with him and the temenggong confirming the right of the British East India Company to establish a trading post in return for an annual rent (in Spanish dollars, the common currency of the region at the time) of Sp$5,000 to Hussein and Sp$3,000 to the temenggong
Read carefully. The annual rent was for “a” trading post. Not for the whole island.
Fastforward to 1857. After the Indian Mutiny of that year, the British Government took over the assets of the British East India Company, including Malaya and went on to “acknowledge” more Sultans and sign more treaties. 
The “as long as there are moon and stars in the sky” type Water Supply Agreements and such (signed in the early 20th century) are just carryovers of British piracy.
Fastforward to 1963. “Singapore” joins Malaysia. Two “Acts” of Parliament were passed.

The British Parliament passed an Act ceding all British claims to ‘sovereignty’ over Singapore to Malaysia. Over in Malaysia an Act of Parliament was passed noting that Singapore was now part of Malaysia (again). 
Fastforward to 1965 : Singapore was “expelled” from Malaysia. It was a unilateral decision by Tunku Abdul Rahman the Prime Minister. It had not been debated and approved by the Malaysian Cabinet. More importantly no specific Act of Parliament was passed in Malaysia acknowledging that Singapore was no more part of the country. Legally then, under an Act of Parliament, passed by an Independent people, Singapore is still part of Malaysia. 
Back to Ho Chi Minh. ALL treaties and agreements forced upon us under the force of Colonial guns and cannons have no moral standing. We should have just repudiated them.

As an independent nation we must create space and opportunity for all under the realm. But we must do it in our own fashion to suit our people.

Pangkor Treaty ? ? Did they smoke pipes too ? Selagi ada bulan dan bintang . . .
