Wishing all Selamat Hari Malaysia in the spirit of the new national tagline Malaysian Family.
The current economic, political and social development seemed to be leading UMNO as well as PPBM and PAS to the inevitable.
Though there is a political truce for at least a year to enable Malaysia to get out of the triple crisis of health, economics and politics, MOU is not an iron clad agreement.
Only time can tell.
Political pundits is predicting the horizon is not too far away. Perhaps, it is before the return of His Majesty Agong from his overseas trip. Or just after.
In the meanwhile, the mounting worry is Malaysia has all the elements and ripe for the picking.

Yesterday, the top management of IRD (or the Malay acronym LHDN) was in a meeting the whole day.
The mood and subject of discussion is not known but it should be out of concern for the police report made by Dato Najib against LHDN at the Sentul Police Station on Thursday for abuse of power, use of false documents, etc.
That brought out opposing reaction on the social media. The so-called Najib cybertroopers announced he is commencing his attack.
In the midst of jubilation by Najib's supporter, with some hoping for his comeback following talk Najib will be appointed to some position in government, Court of Appeal put a damper.
Najib and son appeal on the bankruptcy proceeding of LHDN for failure to pay the RM1.69 billion tax was rejected. His social media detractors quickly demand he pay up and brushed aside the police report as mere theatrics.
Maybe yes and maybe no, but police investigation has commenced and probably later, MACC to follow. The heat is still on LHDN.

Pak Pandir is a famous Malay folklore character depicted as naive and simpleminded.
He is the village idiot foolishly following advise blindly and seldom succumbed to situation which puts him in hilarious situation.
In the Serba Dinamik episode, Sarawak Kini, a Sarawak based blog described EPF as a Pak Pandir Fund Manager. They went on to account for repeatedly being on the wrong side of the market, which is contrary to their claim as a prudent investor.
The market talk is EPF has something to hide for it benefited in the short and long play through the meteoric rise of Serba shares in the past. The cat may have got their tongue.
To cover from losing face and not be shamed, the likes of EPF, Bursa Malaysia and Securities Commission need a voice to assist and perhaps, cover for them. Suspiciously and with basis, Minority Shareholders Watchdog Group (MSWG) maybe doing their bidding.
The recent comment by its CEO, Devanesan Evanson in Focus Malaysia here made him look as naive as Pak Pandir to the astute observer.

In celebration of Merdeka, join us to read the sacred words this then 12 year old recited at the top of our voice half a century ago:
