Year of lies

Year of lies

Kid: The year of lies!

For most Indonesians, 2011 will be remembered as the year of lies and broken promises, with President Yudhoyono’s (pictured left) government not only failing to make headway in any of its stated policy objectives, but loosing ground on almost every front, whether it be the fight against corruption, bureaucratic reform, the judicial mafia, human rights, religious tolerance, law enforcement, poverty alleviation, the environmental or social justice. Few expect 2012 to be any better.
