Straight talk on Malaysian politics is what you get in this book. No mincing of words, no waffling. Direct and to-the-point. In other words, no b******t. Writer Kee Thuan Chye is noted for his candid and honest commentaries on Malaysian politics; in these pages are his incisive interpretations of what is going wrong in Malaysia and suggestions of what needs to be done to correct the ills. He does not hold back his punches when he wallops the Prime Minister and some of his Cabinet members. He speaks out without fear or favour in interviews done with him by other media. From these and the poems and excerpts from his plays included here, you hear the voice of a Malaysian who cares enough for his country to speak up for its good. Among its contents are:
Time to Repeal the Sedition Act
The Sex Video Comedy and the Malaysian Malady
