The house of cards that BN built falls apart just a little more again.
The waves of the tsunami has not calmed down yet. The waves have picked back up
The first shot of the mini-tsunami:
The Lingam report, its suggestions, and the leaks even before the official
report or decision to publicize it, hints at a dedicated movement of some sort
to continue eroding BN from within and without.
The second shot: Election Commision jumps ship
EC chief: Cabinet disapproved of indelible ink
EC wants electoral laws reviewed
Why the EC's balls decided to drop now, I don't know. But the intricate empire
that BN has had is falling apart. EC have now jump shipped and passed the flak
and dead weight solely onto BN, and really, on UMNO. Who knows how "victimized"
the EC chairperson really was, but the burden is on the BN cabinet to explain
themselves: ?I was told that I was to take the responsibility for agreeing to
it. It's not easy being EC chairperson. I took the whole rap over the year,?
Rashid told reporters after a function today. And does BN attack the chairperson
and the EC that they have praised for such a long time?
He even hinted at a praise to the opposition:
He disclosed that immediately after the March general election, the opposition
parties sent delegates to apologise for what was said during the campaign.
"The opposition parties did send people to say sorry, to apologise. I don't want
to mention. They were very personal with me. They were very sorry because
basically I wasn't their enemy. I accepted their apologies. They came
immediately after the election," said Abdul Rashid.
Third shot (more like a shot that was shot long ago but is finally being heard):
How real the defections really are
Snap polls can be called any time
Talks of snap polls again further undermines the ironclad authority of
Abdullah's BN and UMNO. In this article, Upko (Sabah) president Bernard Dompok
talks of how the frustrations of East Malaysia are suddenly "very real". They
also suddenly realize that it is the rakyat who put these politicians there and
to survive they need to listen to their rakyat. When they have the alternative
to choose from why would they not consider it? Only a fool would be loyal to a
master that does not appreciate it, a master that tells them to be "grateful"
and expecting "yes-men" attitude of their counterparts on the peninsula when it
was them that save the master's life. It also shows the disconnect of the two
that the BN politicians on the peninsula does not even know how to handle their
Eastern brothers now that these brothers are so much more important. I'm not
quite sure what goes through their minds. Maybe they assume that Sabah and
Sarawak are simple static village people that live by the rule of noble savages
who does not know how to demand and is happy with what little they have.
Again, UMNO's arrogance in not taking them seriously in the beginning have cost
RPK was really right when he predicted, when Mahathir retired, that we would
look back one day around now and longed for Mahathir's reign again. That is
because of all the things it has done, during Mahathir's time, the government
still performed rigorously enough to bring real development to the country that
everyone could see and was satisfied with. Just like Lee Kuan Yew said in an
interview. PAP is not really that invincible. Once they slack off in the rigor
that they have exhibited in the 47 years, they will be kicked out of government.
And that is what has happened with Abdullah's UMNO. By RPK's calculations,
billions upon billions of the rakyat's money have been siphoned off faster than
during Mahathir's time with a structure that was installed way faster than
during Mahathir's reign. And the little things that Abdullah tried to do or
promised to do was too little too late.
Even seasoned crooks must do their homework to make sure they can continue heist
after heist after heist. What we have now was a corrupt government of the lazy
kind. They were too lazy to be constantly acutely aware of the ground sentiments
in their hunger for personal wealth and now they have to dig themselves out of
this humongous hole. Even if they have learned their lessons to be more clever
in their operations from now on, they can't even put in any meaningful steps to
that effect. They have to take care of all the little wildfires flaring here and
there. Things are really out of their control. This is a reactionary government,
not a proactive one.
