Sweating over a real water plan

There’s a heatwave in some states. And it’s pouring in others.

Pardon me, but should they be freed?

Why Not?

How do we prevent the floods?

It is all very well to set up relief centres, put boats on standby and get personnel to be ready to evacuate flood victims, but a real plan is needed.

Why Not?

A unifying PM is what we need

New Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has been welcomed by many like a breath of fresh air.
