KJ new Youth and Sports Minister

The tech-savvy Khairy Jamaluddin (pic) has been appointed as the Youth and Sports Minister. The announcement was made by Prime Minister Najib Razak minutes ago.

Khairy, the Rembau MP who is also the Umno Youth chief, has been associated to the portfolio as he has always been seen as the fresh face representing the Malaysian youth. He also has plenty of experience in the sports scene - mainly football - having formed UPB-MyTeam before becoming the FA of Malaysia deputy president.

Naturally, Khairy will be expected to make plenty of changes especially within the ministry. He is well aware of the problems faced but it remains to be seen if any drastic measures can or will be taken during his tenure to ensure the ministry is free from minnions and little Napoleons.

All the best KJ.

Football journo's accreditation card retracted for being 'overly critical'

Four Four Two journalist Vijhay Vick's accreditation card to cover the M-League has been "retracted" by Football Malaysia LLP last night.

The letter, signed by FMLLP chief executive officer Kevin Ramalingam, stated:
"We are open to criticism by the public, however, it has been brought to FMLLP's attention that you have been overly critical of the Malaysian League and have made misleading statements and or shared misleading statements made by third parties. This is very damaging to the image of the League and the brand that we are trying to build."
It remains unclear which articles written by Vijhay are said to be "overly critical" of the Malaysian League.
Vijhay, in responding to the letter he received last night, said: 
"I was shocked (to receive the letter). I would like to know which articles of mine that are overly critical of the league."
It is best if FMLLP explained its definition of being "overly critical".
