Anger. Disappointment. Frustration. Sadness . . .
Those are the sentiments of most sane Malaysians. I say sane coz those typically myopic Barisan leaders & its supporters are just too busy gloating & being smug-as-fook to realise that this sorry episode in the Silver state has made even more citizens doubt BN's ability to govern.
It shows how it ignores the fact that the Perak state govt has been getting the thumbs up so far from the majority of the populace & to topple it without going to the polls smacks of cowardice.
To the shrill protests of Barisan fookheads who say Pakatan got a taste of their own medicine, do realise one thing. Pakatan made it OPEN & crystal clear to all & sundry that the Sep16 attempt was a means to an end.
PKR vice-president, R Sivarasa said that they wanted to be in control of Putrajaya fer just six months to ensure the Elections Commissions, courts & other public bodies are staffed by FAIR & UNBIASED persons before calling snaps to get a proper mandate.
We all know that the whole electoral system is rigged to favour BN. So Pakatan saw defections as a way to get clean & fair elections. It had publicly declared its intentions. Compare & contrast with BN's maneuvering in Perak with public monies being funnelled into the pockets of the unscrupulous & amoral. And Najib seems to think this is going to strengthen his position as commander-in-chief?
As fer the wise old Sultan Azlan Shah, suffice to say he has let the rakyat down. If this is the best we can expect from a former Lord President of the Federal Court, then what can we hope from the rest? Once again, to all the royalists out there, me thinks this episode serves to remind everyone the benefits of going republic . . .
