Ok, the grapevine is not just rumbling but almost burning from the sheer amount of whispers, hearsay & rumour making the rounds on the supposed defection of BN MPs.
Last me heard was that apparently Pakatan has already sewn up the 30 required to topple the govt but are holding back coz most are non-Bumi MPs. They have thus held back the announcement in a belated attempt to bring over some high-ranking UMNO blokeys in order to give the new order a more balanced racial appearance.
Apparently, some of these defectors will even include several cabinet & dep ministers. Far fetched? Think about it. If Pakatan have already got the 30, why wouldn't these rats cabut from a sinking ship?
Me called Malaysiakini CEO Premesh Chandran & asked if he had any solid info on these mutterings. "So far nothing concrete & they remain just that, rumours," he said. "But there is a possibility that they could be true & Anwar keeps good his promise of a Sep16 change of government."
But what is most telling is the tone from both sides of the fence. Anwar & other opposition leaders have been quitely confident even though the mass media has painted them as liars & fer not respecting the recent electoral mandate. You get the feeling that something is going to happen just from the cool demeanour of these guys.
Contrast this with the repeated pressing of the panic button by Barisan Najis. You can sense the party is in its death throes & is clutching at straws to stay alive. From a fooking COMPULSORY trip fer their MPs to Oz to hastily arranged press conferences stating that Sabah MPs are loyal to the cause.
Could this really be happening? Never in me wildest dreams did me ever think me would see the day that BN fall. It hasn't happened yet & may not still. But just to see BN fooking shit themselves is worthwhile enough . . .
ps: Fer those of you who care enough but missed out on the last GE, time is running out fer you to be registered in time fer a possible snaps at the end of the year! Time to get mobilised people!
pps: Look forward to reading any other rumours you may have heard as well as yer thoughts on what may happen this time next week. A new govt? Martial law? Or same old, same old BN crap?
