Guardian: Short but not sweet (Malaysian Election)

Succinct article about the upcoming Malaysian election describing the incredible imbalance of it's so-called democracy. It's more like a benign totalitarian state than a democracy. Police are controlled by the executive, the media is tightly censored, patronage is rife and the opposition doesn't have a chance. No wonder the election campaign only has to last eight days.
