Word of the Year 2010: OVERRUN

I choose the word ‘overrun’ because it may refer to:

1. To go beyond the normal or desired limit: Cost overrun is common in Malaysian government mega projects.

2. To seize the positions of and defeat conclusively: The position of Pakatan Rakyat state government in Perak was overrun by BN undemocratically.

3. To spread swiftly throughout: Corruption overran the country.

4. To spread destructively: Cronyism overran the government projects.

5. To run or extend beyond a limit: Taib Mahmud has overrun his term as Sarawak CM.

Why you must use government or BN or Sarawak's CM as an example?

Isn't LKS or Karpal Singh also has overrrun his term as DAP top post? or Nik Aziz also has overrun his term as Mentri Besar of Kelantan.

I'm not supporting any parties coz in politics..you have no friends and you cannot trust anyone. Most important politics is just a waste of time.

If you really want to help people of Segambut, appreciate if you could get DUKE Highway operators to install the noise barriers along their highway next to the Changkat View Condominum. If you can manage that than you are a worthy MP for Segambut.
