The open house as PWTC

I was, as one would expect, unable to go to the open house at PWTC, organised by the PM and his Cabinet yesterday.

Haris and Zorro, however, have posted photos of their outing yesterday, and judging from the tone of their writings, I’m presuming that they consider yesterday quite a success.

Malaysian Insider also has a take on it.

The StarOnline writes about it from the ministers’ points of view. I found the quote below particularly ticklish:

“If they come in peace and harmony there shouldn’t be any problems,” said Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar.

Almost sounds like a bunch of MARTIANS landed on Earth, and Syed Hamid Albar wants to know if they have “come in peace”! Too funny not to pick up.

Today, there will be another gathering of the same kind at the Kamunting Detention Camp, where the people of KL will be meeting up with the people from up north in Penang and Perak, to let RPK and the other ISA detainees know that they are not forgotten during this supposedly-festive season.

    Weren’t all the so-called marches all done in ‘peace and harmony’ to quote him? Until they were disrupted with tear gas and laced-water cannons? People, including some very old and some very young, all out there in a show of unity – so unheard of before October last year, Hindraf and Bersih.

    How differnt it could have been if they were received in the same spirit as they were yesterday. Someone greeting them and accepting their letters – and then in the usual Malaysian way, forget about it!

    Ah well, there is no going back replaying anything now, is there?
