So, far, things look good for BN here.
Arrived here for the Tanjung Piai by-election late yesterday afternoon.
First thing I did was meeting an old friend, who is my most trusted source in Johor at Pontian Kechil to get the latest.
The guy has been camping in Tanjung Piai since before the campaigning period started.
"BN will win," was his direct answer to my question on who does he think will win the by-election.
"The local punters have already closed all bets. Too many people are betting that BN will win by two or three thousands majority," he added.
My friend is a Chinese, so he knows that sort of things.
"But seriously, Pakatan may not get even half of the Chinese votes here. People are angry over the broken promises and DAP's insensitivities such as not giving TAR College its proper allocation," he said.
My friend also told me things which I already knew from my days in Johor several years ago. That Wee Jeck Seng was a good MP who was always there for his constituents irrespective of race or religion.
"I simply can't see how BN can lose this time," he said.
Later in the evening, I went to Kampung Parit Haji Othman where Umno deputy president Mat Hasan was giving a ceramah.
The guy is working hard, day and night in Tanjung Piai. Just have a look at his Instagram.
His speech last night was good - factual, yet simple and easy to understand.
I'm glad that Mat Hasan is here for the BN machinery in Tanjung Piai.
Tonight, Dr Mahathir will be here.
Pakatan is banking on him to turn things around, but I don't think it's going to work.
It's quite pitiful that all that they have is the 94-year-old leader to convince the people once again that things are better under the Pakatan rule.
Yup, after all the broken promises and poor governance.
They even have to rely on this to blunt the BN's campaign on the ground,
Art, what the hell are you doing lah?
You know Pakatan is lousy at such on the ground campaigning compared to BN and that's why you are making it difficult, isn't it?
Come on la friend. Don't be so cheap like that.
Okay, let me wrap up this short post with this video on Wee's on the ground campaigning,
I'll write again later. Need to go to Serkat now.
