Ingat kat, Robert mugabe mesti masuk senarai tapi tak. President Hungary ngan konco2nya pun buleh tahan korupnya.

Tp pikir balik, politician mana tak korup ye tak?

Sebagai seorang warganegara awak x sepatutnya ingin/suka melihat sesuatu yg memalukan buat tanahair kita... Grrrr.... MERDEKA!

Jgnlah marah Mild. :D Bukan suka nak tgk benda yg memalukan negara. Tp cam susah je nak percaya politician Malaysia bebas dari corruption. Sebab saya rasa tiap negara ada je politician yg haprak. :P
