I'm not going to sign the "declaration" initiated by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
It's because I want to stay neutral.
Also, I'm especially uncomfortable putting my name on paper as being on the same boat with quite a number of people who signed the "declaration" as some sorts of the movement's leaders yesterday.
For one thing, I don't want to join any movement if one of the leaders is Hishamuddin Rais.
The guy is just too creepy, okay.
Well, I can't join the Najib's camp either.
I don't believe in their "either you are with us or against us" dogma because for me it's too stupid.
There are too many stupid and weird people in Najib's camp and I don't want to be one of them.
I also don't want to be in the same team as you know who. Don't want to end up being neurotic like that.
Anyway, even if I want to join them, I don't think they will accept me as my way of doing things is very different from theirs.
Yup, I'm staying neutral.
Being neutral is allowed in a democracy, and I want to believe that there is still democracy in this country.
From now on, whenever I'm writing about politics, I will do so just as an observer.
I will try to stick with facts and make my comments based on them.
It's the same as during the Umno civil war which started last year.
By the way, I think that civil war is over for good yesterday when Dr Mahathir and the others signed the declaration.
It's now an all out war involving everyone, instead of just those within Umno.
