…and why do I have nothing to say about Bagan Pinang? The by-election passed by me as if it was just a shadow play.
Because voters do deserve the candidates/governments they get. They have to live with these chosen ones. What baffles me is why they do not think of the implications of their decisions on others, like their children and grandchildren for example?
And if more people had chosen a tainted person to be their representative, than those who had chosen one who might anytime turn a religious bigotby virtue of his party PAS, what are we to say?
Is there a viable alternative, with all the in-fighting in Pakatan Rakyat, giving people the impression that they are more interested in politicking than governing the country?
I am sorry to say but the people of Bagan Pinang looked at Isa Samad, then they looked at Zulkefly, the PAS candidate, and their chose their local boy. Who is Zulkefly to them? Who is PAS (ala KJ’s who is DAP?)?
More flustered I am with Najib Razak, the 1Malaysia clown who endorsed corruption in not so many words when he supported Isa. What standards has he set for Malaysia?
I don’t wholly buy the often said argument that if people had paid their dues, they should be given a second chance. I’d give drug addicts a second chance, but a politician, cannot!
A drug addict wasn’t expected to have integrity, and to be entrusted with the lives and future of his constituency, a nation. But a politician is expected to be so. So how can they be compared?
Which is why I have nothing to say about Bagan Pinang until now…
