Nothing is really cooking on the political front for now except the Umno general assembly which starts on Nov 25.
That's how dry things are at the moment.
Almost everything were constant.
All those stuff they said about a rebellion brewing against Najib from within his own party, well...the truth is that it was not true.
Whether you like it or not, Najib actually has full control over the party's supreme council, the vice-presidents, party wings and even his own deputy.
That's good enough for him to stay in power for quite a while more.
The majority of those who are supportive of the establishment but now said they want Najib to be ousted are actually mostly non-Umno members or party members but those who have not much influence in deciding the direction of the Malay party.
What will actually happen at the Umno general assembly?
Well, the resolutions (usul-usul) by the party divisions will indeed be heard at the PWTC.
But that will be as far as they will ever get.
The party leadership had actually already made up their mind on those issues.
No joke, okay.
They will let the delegates vent their anger and frustrations but in the end persuade everyone that what they are doing are good for agama, bangsa and tanahair.
Yup, that is what going to happen at PWTC.
The delegates can talk all they want about issues such as absorbing the Chinese education system into the national school system, but that will be all there is to it...just talks.
The truth is, Chinese schools are here to stay "selagi ada bulan dan bintang" and their safe existence "has been put under lock and key" by the government.
The first part about moon and stars was promised by DPM and Education minister TS Muhyiddin Yassin during the Sungai Limau by-election last year while the part about the right for the schools' existence being put under lock and key was uttered by PM DS Najib Razak during the recent MCA's AGM.
You all remember those, right?
As for all those protests over Sedition Act, well, the speakers at the Umno general assembly can whack the issue till its skin and bones but I believe the Act will in the end still be phased out.
It's all already decided, okay.
The same goes with other issues.
Nonetheless, the pressure on Najib will continue.
Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and others will continue to criticize the Najib's administration, but it was not because they want to topple the PM but rather want him to be a better PM.
I myself will be criticizing Najib and his people if I detect them doing something wrong.
It's actually good that there are pressure as it will keep Najib and his people on their toes and not think that they can do whatever they want because they are in power.
But still, honestly, I don't really fancy Najib's job.
It's too stressful.
It is actually better to be his critique rather than to be the man himself.
