IT’S GOOD TO BE BACK! (well, sort of)
I was away in another country with very limited news from Malaysia. Was only able to access this blog through my handphone. Hence, was unable to post any articles for the past week or so. Not that I’m obliged to write on a daily basis anyway. But I’m telling ya, try going away for a few days and you will find yourself swamped by an avalanche of news once you come back.
Need to do some catching up on the blogs of fellow bloggers and reading the nauseating news in the mainstream media. It amazes me that after a few days out of the country, things hadn’t really changed. In fact, it got worse.
For a start, I just learned that we are gonna be stuck with Pak Lah for yet another TWO years! What happened? Did he not read the memo? Did somebody forgot to tell him that we want him out NOW? Were all Umno MT members drugged into submission during the meeting?
All those nights of fantasizing the possibility of getting a new (and clever) Prime Minister come this December just came to naught. I wonder what Pak Lah really felt when his retirement announcement was met with a thunderous applause by the Umno delegates last Thursday. His skin must have been really, really thick.
To me, Pak Lah will be remembered as the Umno President whom had unsystematically destroy Umno and had brought Barisan Nasional to its knees. Since 2003, he had done nothing except to make the country and the rakyat suffer from every flip flop decision he made. The most recent would be the decision on the Thailand rice purchase.
By June 2010, I sure hope Pak Lah will remove the knife (or keris) from Barisan Nasional’s back. What a backstabber. “The Prime Minister who backstabs the nation”. Wow. Now that’s deep. Not unlike the other backstabber whom we love to hate or love to adore, depending on which side you’re on. But I guess birds of a feather do flock together.
A Prime Minister that backstabs the nation. Let’s take a moment and think about that sentence…
By the way, doesn’t it make your blood rushed to the head when you read that Harley Davidson bought MV Agusta for USD109 million recently? The longer Pak Lah at the helm, the more damaging he will be. If you do not believe me, then I really hate to tell you people “I told you so” 6 months down the road.
Anyway, I also came to learn that Anwar Ibrahim was acting up again. This time, he is throwing tantrums like a pre-teen. Is this so called ‘Prime Minister in waiting’ thinks he is above the law? Think about all the things he could do if he really was the Prime Minister. Do we really want a diva as a Prime Minister?
From his actions, I do not think he is interested in clearing his name quickly. Actually, he wants the police to arrest him so that he will regain popularity and become a martyr. Who does he think he is anyway? Jose Rizal?! Don’t make me barf. I barfed the other time reading about Pak Lah and Gorbachev. But that was not as bad as Joceline Tan’s rendition of equating KJ and Che Det though.
The bottomline is, both Pak Lah and Anwar are bankrupt of ideas anyway.
And lastly, Mr. Bung Mokhtar Radin. The troublemaker. He is a scum. For the love all things holy, why on earth did the people in Kinabatangan vote for him? Are they bereft of any common sense? And why are his actions left unchecked? According to Umno’s constitution [fasal 20.8 (f) & (g)], he should be subjected to some disciplinary action. Oh well, Pak Lah is not known to be a strict disciplinarian anyway. Is this good for a developing nation?
