I never knew that we had to physically BUY the reports. Always thought it would be out in newspapers, or something close to that.

But at the very least they did the right thing in deciding to release it to the public. Although I would argue that they never really had the choice, because it was the Royal Commission, and according to my dad, it's our right to know about their findings.

The people caused the political tsunami to happen om March 8. No one, not even many of the victorious MPs, believed it could happened before the event. But happened it did!

Now, no one may believe a Judiciary Tsunami may happen. But happen it will, if the rakyat wants it to happen. So, do we want it to happen? Do we want a Judiciary Tsunami here now?

If so, let us work for it. Let each want of us make our desire known. Write, speak, blog, lobby, do whatever you can!!!!

Get your MPs to keep fighting for the Commission's Recommendations to be implemented.
