Done with the CNY merry making and need to get serious again.
Been neglecting the current political scene for quite a while now.
Checked around just now and found out that it's more or less the same nonsense as usual.
Let me briefly go at them one by one.
There's Pas' Mahfuz Omar trying to capitalize from the noises being made by convicted murderer Sirul Azhar from down under.
That's very silly of him. Trying to win political brownie points over dead people is disgusting.
Then there were also PKR guys still making noises over the jailing of DS Anwar Ibrahim for sodomy.
But not much impact there. The gatherings initiated so far were not very well attended.
People are tired of it, I think.
Even Pas and DAP don't seem to care much.
They are more interested in going at each other's throat.
Yesterday Gobind, the son of the late Karpal Singh tried to live up to his father's reputation of being garang with Pas by warning the Islamist party over its hudud ambitions.
Pas people just told him to fly kite.
Gobind is definitely not his father. Not by the longest stretch.
The DAP's Lim royal family members have not been very noisy....guess still in CNY mode. Too kenyang makan kuih bakul, maybe.
The stupid MIC crisis has cool down a bit.
I rather not comment on that one. Takut kena sue. Not worthwhile to bother with it anyway.
MCA is barking around as usual. Let them lah. What else can they do anyway.
Meanwhile, Umno is still as it is.
I was told there will be no changes at the party HQ as I had hoped for.
Why should I be bothered too much. I'm not even a member of the party.
Detractors of PM DS Najib Razak from among the pro-establishment crowd are still at it.
Not done with 1MDB, now they shifted also to FGV.
Good luck to them, but I don't think they can achieve much.
The Umno president is too strong within the party.
What else.....err, nothing much....
Oh, the upcoming Chempaka by-election.
Nope, I don't think Umno will field a candidate. Good also, as they will almost certain to lose. Better save the money for something else.
The upcoming by-election in Permatang Pauh is yet to be finalised.
They said Anwar may still appeal to Yang DiPertuan Agong to reverse his sodomy conviction.
But I think if the Agong turned down such a request by Anwar, it would be a big blow to the PKR gang.
It more or less says that even the Agong believes that Anwar actually sodomise his former aide Saiful Azhar Bukhari.
What? Anwar wants to get his people to demonstrate against the Agong after that? Don't be ridiculous, ok.
Hah, that's about it. A very fast run down of the current political stuff.
I find them quite boring, actually.
Same ole same ole.
See lah later, if I find anything more interest, I will do a proper posting to amuse you all.
Need to get back to work.
Otherwise my irritating bosses will come and disturb me pulak.
Cheers everyone :-)
