I read with interest and a degree of amusement the Wassap group conversation between a bunch of Johorean friends about the ongoing crisis in their home state as posted by A Voice here,
What are the Johoreans saying?
Similarly, there were also rather interesting 'debates" on the matter between commenters in my last posting
Allah Peliharakan Sultan
I know that most readers of this blog do not have the time to read the comments section or care too much to do so as there are indeed a lot of comments of low value there.
But really, sometimes the conversation there could be quite interesting and amusing too at the same time.
I am reproducing here the one between whom I believe to be DAP cybertroopers and Umno supporters. They all could probably be Johoreans.
Well, interesting and amusing at the same time, aren't they?
Anyway, on a more serious note, senior blogger Pasquale, whom I believe to have quite "thick cables" in Putrajaya have this to say about the same subject matter,
More to it than meets the eye in Johore......!
Excerpts from it,
Whats happening in Penang and Selangor you might ask, well if your minds are that insular and simple Malay minds you will probably miss and not see it.
Let me put it very bluntly....these two states will be hard to "take" back to the fold since a lot of foreign money are in to make these two states not again to be belong to the BN, or to Umno or to the pathethic Malays.
Now to Johore! I can bet my bottom ringgit (not much though) that what is happening in Johore vis a vis corruption, as reported, is that there is a bigger game afoot, if Umno politicians, or members of the royalty refused to see the bigger picture. That picture is SINGAPURA!!
Meanwhile, The Mole also has a similar story,
