As bad as it seems the decision today, perhaps it is a blessing in disguise. If Nizar had won, UMNO wouldn't have given him/PR team an easy life for remainder of term. And I doubt the Palace would be accommodating either. All of these has shown us, that the most important plan of action is to capture the Federal Gov. With that, we can address the many other bane that afflicts the entire democratic structure in Msia. We can also amend the laws to deal with political frogs. For now, let UMNO win. They may have won the case; they certainly did not the hearts of the ppl. And as Ku Li put it, UMNO practices a sham democracy. It is a matter of time before the house of cards drop permanently. It is also good to note the Fed Crt decision; it confirm to us UMNO's reach. And that lends credence that Anwar's trial is meant to be all but doom for him. Now we know.

Let the robbers and thieves rejoice for now. Justice will be served on them at the next election. Nizar and gang must continue to engage the public frequently till then. Your people understands. Accept this verdict and move on.

To kill a mosquito, UMNO burned the mosquito net. Watch how this ruling that "it is not necessary for a vote of confidence to be done in the state assembly, the sultan can sack the MB" come back to haunt the UMNO MBs one after another from state to state soon.

My only comment is this is the darkest hours of Malaysia judiciary. If you look at the Judges who decided on this case, two most senior judges also presided the Zambry vs Sivakumar case which they decide the same. That why I am not surprise with the outcome. NH Chan must be feeling extremely sad with the results and so are majority of the Malaysians. Now the only hope is for the people to rise in the next general election to put back Malaysia into the right track. Yes Mr NH Chan we shall remember these five Federal Court Judges. Thanks Malaysiakini for posting their pictures on their website. This decision means we are going back to feudal era where Kings can decide to fire MB or PM. God saves us.

Where did these judges get their degrees? I wonder how those institutions of higher studies where they graduated from see this matter.

Whenever you got more than one learned and very experienced judges of the highest court in any respected judiciary in this modern world, under normal circumstances,the understanding and interpretation of the law,would never be the same.Why?Each and every one of them shall put in writing,to justify his/her judgement.In simple words,a high court judge could deliver one version of the law and the top five,together,came out with another one. I may be wrong,hoping somebody,somewhere could share with us,if at all,could get all five written facts that made the score lima kosong.

ENCORE.. great perfomance by the Royal Malaysian Circus Clowns. My apology for those who cannot get a ticket to see the greatest show on Planet Earth but this is our last show and we are moving out of town for our New Zealand vacation. Uncle Lingam just confirmed our six star Holiday Retreat in Wellington c/w Written Judgement well prepared.

The three frogs who brought about this situation had better go into hiding as wherever they go they will be spat upon. It's a sad day indeed for this country and in particular Perak. I hang my head in sorrow and fear for the future of this country. 1Malaysia my foot.

No surprise here! Getting a fair judgment, now THAT would be a surprise... No need to be disappointed over an outcome that is already expected. Don't expect the judiciary to give you back what has been been stolen from them all those years ago. Just take it back at the GE - just make sure that is a resounding victory!

This is not a defeat. This forced retreat will enable PR to realign its fulcrum to get a better leverage. The judiciary has forced itself to a conner now. The only opening left to the judiciary is the door to shame that will come in time. Remember the blatant Adorna case. Justice will prevail eventually.

Alauddin Mohd Sheriff, Arifin Zakaria, Zulkefli Ahmad Makinuddin, Mohd Ghazali Mohd Yusoff and Abdull Hamid Embong... welcome to the judicial Hall of Shame. You have bent over without a whimper of protest and let yourselves be Mahathirized, Najibized, Azlanized and neutered!

It's a sad day for democracy. If the power from the people being taken away then it become dictatorship rule. It show that our country don't respect the people chosen government. But nevertheless, such government won't last long; History Shown. When the trust is LOST, no matter how you going to bring on; it's impossible. Unless the power is given back to the people.

We, the knowledgeable people of Perak, reject this decision. We shall demonstrate this with the results of the next election in Perak.

There is no more constitution nor rule of law anymore. There is only anarchy. It will from now onwards be a free for all. It is also a time when Malaysia will ultimately have to remove governors/the monarchy for a fully republican democracy. The Brits should have stuck to the Malayan Union. This country will now quickly slip into lawlessness.

Malaysiakini reports that "President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Alauddin Mohd Sheriff, led a five-member bench in delivering the verdict.The others were Chief Judge of Malaya Justice Arifin Zakaria and Justices Zulkefli Ahmad Makinuddin, Mohd Ghazali Mohd Yusoff and Abdull Hamid Embong of the Federal Court." The federal court recently lost Augustine and now it is confirmed that these 5 judges are in the same category and in the same class as Augustine.

BN wins Perak, but looses the people's confidence! Zamri should dissolve the DUN and face up to the verdict of the rakyat and not the court.

Come on, you couldn't have expected a different verdict - this verdict was obvious right from the start. This decision puts more power in the hands of the Sultan, less in the Rakyat.

It was already a foregone conclusion that the Federal Court will rule in favour of Zambry. What can one expect when five UMNO judges are hearing the case. To Datuk Nizar, it is time for a strategic retreat, this time to focus on reaching out to the rakyat in Perak so that you and your team will administer Perak again. What we now have is an illegal state government made legal.

This is the Federal Court headed by former UMNO's underdog lawyer. Good we respect the decision but we the RAKYAT WILL GIVE OUR DECISION BY THE BALLOT BOX. Zambry Mamak dares that Pakatan Aduan resign, well Mamak why not you tell your corrupt Aduans to resign and face the people. You are a Gutless guy.
