Permatang Pauh: The Final Countdown . . .
Like it or not, the good people of Permatang Pauh will today cast a vote not just fer their constituency but fer the whole nation. The over-heated campaigning, rhetoric bordering on slander & circulation of all sorts of hearsay & unsubstantiated evidence (eg lab reports stating DNA samples in Saiful underwear is Anwar's) make it crystal clear what is at fooking stake.
Just a quick recap of some of the pertinent issues they will be deciding on today:
1) The Unbearable Prices of Fuel
Pakatan: Anwar has made this the platform fer his comeback stating a 50sen reduction at the very least. Me isn't exactly poor nor is me using a guzzler of a vehicle, but me is fooking feeling the pinch. Aren't you?
BN: accuses Anwar of using populist tactics only fer themselves reduce the price by 15sen cometh the by-election. Also claim that oil-producing nations with subsidies suffer from high inflation. Well guess what, our inflation is at a record 8.5% & we also have to pay high prices fer fuel. Go fooking figure.
2) In the name of God?
BN: Have used all sorts of unsavoury tactics to smear the good name of Anwar & his family including the despicable oath taking by Saiful. Also continuously used religion to stir up emotions by stating that a vote fer the opposition will dilute Islam's role in the country.
Pakatan: PAS's Tok Guru has come out & said that they are NOT seeking to establish an Islamic state but merely a society run according Islamic principles. Non-Muslims will have a choice. He states the example of Islamic banking available in most financial institutions to Muslims & non-Muslims alike. And he didn't need to swear on it . . .
3) Rice bowl issues
Pakatan: Anwar is well-liked & respected in the international community. He has the charisma & understanding of international values to bring in much needed foreign capital. He has promised a clean & transparent administration that will be good fer business. DAP's policy of CAT governance in Penang has already drew praises from all races fer opening business opportunities usually reserved fer cronies.
BN: No real economic plan besides blaming world recession fer everything. But in the last two years, Bodohwi has splurged on a private jet fer himself & launched a fooking space tourism programme. Subs bought by Najib continue to rust away in some dock unmanned & unused. According to independent foreign reports, the Barisan najis administration has cost the taxpayer close to RM340 BILLION in wastage & corruption.
4) The Jewish connection
BN: Has continuously tried to paint Anwar as a Mossad agent. Fail to forget that they themselves do plenty of businesses with Jewish-owned companies. Its inevitable, fooking get over it. BTW, the pride of our nation ie the twin towers which is supposed to reflect Islamic values & principles was designed by a Jewish architect specifically appointed by the Mighty Tun. No accusations there?
Pakatan: Unfortunately has got into the mud-slinging as well & made some unacceptable anti-semitic remarks. Am sorry but two wrongs don't make a right. Grow up!
Pakatan: Five Perak exco members detained by ACA fer graft & sex scandal. (No trial yet so no presumption of guilt). Anwar & the butt-fooking accusations. Me says, so fooking what even if its true.
BN: Najib & wife's alleged involvement in murder of Altantuya. He even denies knowing the model. But a stat dec from (a now MIA PI) says he not only knew her, but allegedly enjoyed a favour or two from her (allegedly, of course).
Apologies fer the long-winded posting. Am sure yer all aware of the issues above but amidst all the bullshit that has rained down on Permatang Pauh, it easy to lose sight of the issues.
Me awaits with bated breath fer the results tonite. To paraphrase AC/DC, me would like to say fer those about to VOTE, we salute you!
