The last two posts are about Uncle Nasarudin Hashim. As I was sleeping during the day I was shocked to hear how he has returned to UMNO and Barisan Nasional stating 'making sacrifices'.
BN now has 28, PR has 28 and Independant 3.
The last time I heard such that "we have the numbers to form a new government" was from Anwar Ibrahim, who was labelled as the King of Frogs by Koh Tsu Koon.
Just about 2 minutes ago, I read on Thestar Online that it came from his fiercest rival Najib Tun Razak, and he wasn't talking about the big one, but a smaller avenue called Kerajaan Perak.
It's been a torrid time for Nizar these past few weeks, being the MB of Perak.
The talk about defections emerged about a month after the General Election 2008 in March. Anwar has stated how he will 'invite' (no money, positions up front as he claimed) many BN MPs to cross-over to a face-lifted Barisan Alternatif, namely Pakatan Rakyat. Others, are claimed to cross-over voluntarily which I thought was rubbish in this modern world.
I have repeatedly said I am against defections be it from the Pakatan or Barisan and will stand by that statement. A by-election is more appropriate for a State seat being vacated.
It is sad the leaders take more time on the big issue while ignoring the need of the rakyat. Shame on the rakyat who didn't choose their candidates wisely in the State election. I bet some promises made during GE2008 are still stalling.
Well this is what you got for not having a party with 2 3rd majority, a weak government.
Now in Perak both PR and BN are locked at 28 with the 3 Independants claiming to be BN-friendly.
I wonder what sort of government do we have here in Perak. Rojak?
