A new Sabah soon as we hang on till GE15

Sabah to have a state election within 60 days.

I'm cool with that.

That state needs its politics fixed.

I also heard Musa Aman and gang are forming a new coalition to kick Shafie out.

I believe they are capable of doing that.

I also suspect that Umno will retreat from Sabah after that and they will set up a new entity similar to the one in Sarawak to rule the state.

Whatever it is, I think Shafie's Warisan's days are numbered.

The coming state election is definitely not like GE14. Things have changed.

Well, never mind. Let's just wait and see.

As for Umno not being part of Perikatan Nasional as announced by Zahid, I did expect that in my last post.

The Umno grassroots were very unhappy about the Najib's verdict and Zahid as party president has to do something about it.

It's actually not just the verdict, but also the reactions to it, particularly among Pribumi Bersatu people.

I think you all are aware of what they posted in social media about the Najib's verdict.

Their comments are actually worse than those of the Pakatan people, especially because they were supposed to be Umno's friends now.

They didn't just whack Najib, but the entire Umno, okay.

Of course the Umno people were pissed with them because of that.

Those stupid Pribumi Bersatu people never seemed to realise that they are still where they are now courtesy of Umno.

What to's done now.

Next general election, Umno and its BN allies, along with Pas will be together under Muafakat Nasional.

Pribumi Bersatu will be on their own, unless they are willing to be a junior party in that coalition.

I don't think Pakatan will take them back anyway as it is almost useless now with no proper machinery and almost zero support from the Malays.

When is the next general election going to be?

I think Muhyiddin will push it as far back as possible.

He needs to buy time and space to get the best deal for his party.

Otherwise, it's going to be the end of the road for him and the other Pribumi Bersatu people.

Why Zahid, didn't pull Umno totally out of Perikatan?

He needs to keep the current government going until Muhyiddin calls for the next general election as otherwise Pakatan will come back to power.

If that happens, Anwar, backed by DAP will be the new PM and they will pull all stops to destroy BN, Umno and Pas which they could never hope to beat in a proper general election now.

I think Zahid did the right thing on this one.

Unfortunately, it's going to be tough for all of us till the next general election.

Yup, the country will suffer from the instability while it tries to recover from Covid-19.

That includes our economy, which will affect all of us.

Sigh....just too bad, okay.

Anyway, Selamat Hari Raya Haji, guys.

Relax, Najib's fight is far from over

So, the High Court judge sentenced Najib to 12 years jail and over RM200 million fine.

He said the defence had failed to raise reasonable doubt to the prosecution case.

I did follow the case and held a different view, but who am I to dispute the learned judge's opinion.

It may even be a contempt of court if I try to do that.

Then again, Najib will appeal his case to the Court of Appeal and it may even goes to the apex Federal Court.

In Court of Appeal, there will be a penal of three judges who are more learned than that single High Court judge.

In the Federal Court there will be a penal of seven even more learned judges than the three Court of Appeal and single High Court judges.

Lets see what will happen there.

Till then, I think everybody should remain calm.

Pakatan people should not be too cocky yet while Umno people, especially Najib's supporters should not be too sad or angry.

The fight is far from over, okay.

Well, politically, I think the court's decision today is not really good for the Muhyiddin's government.

I think Najib's supporters in Umno may likely feel that Muhyiddin is somehow responsible for what happened in court today.

It's the same as how Anwar's supporters felt when their idol was sent to jail for abuse of power and sodomy.

I believe Umno people who support Najib will want their party not to support Muhyiddin anymore because they would believe that Muhyiddin is actually the one behind the court's decision.

With its super thin majority in parliament, Muhyiddin's government may not survive if the Umno groundswell is so great that its leadership succumbed to pressure and pull out of the informal Perikatan Nasional coalition.

I believe the Najib supporters wouldn't even care if Muhyiddin turns around and rejoins Pakatan Harapan to form another government.

They would prefer to bid their time till the next general election.

If things get so bad, Muhyiddin may even be forced to call for a fresh poll as early as later this year.

Umno leaders who became ministers and GLC bosses may want to stick around with the Muhyiddin's government but Umno MPs who support Najib may cause a lot of problem to the effect that a fresh election would need to be called.

For instance, they may vote against the budget to be tabled later this year.

I don't think the Umno leadership can force them to vote otherwise. It would be politically suicidal for them to do that.

Hopefully, it wouldn't come to that but I believe Najib has enough supporters among the Umno MPs to pull off such a stunt if they choose to do that.

Personally, I don't mind a fresh election.

Settle the whole nonsense once and for all.

After all, we do need a strong government now to recover from the Covid-19 crisis.

Fix things first instead of talking too much

I'm now in the East Coast, resting for the weekend.

It's nice here. Feel very peaceful.

I think things are more settled now as the Covid-19 situation began to eases off in this country several weeks ago.

The fear of a second wave is still there but I'm more relaxed now.

The political situation is also looking more stable.

Everyone knows now that the current government can function despite its thin majority in parliament.

Personally, I prefer a fresh general election but if the government does well, I don't see any reason why I need to make too much noise about it.

Okay, they do need to make some adjustments like stopping the stupidity among some of the ministers and stuff but overall, at this juncture, they seemed to be better than the previous Pakatan government.

They handled the Covid-19 situation well and didn't do anything that riled up too many people like what Pakatan did when coming to power in 2018.

Bear also in mind that it's now not anymore about who is in power but rather whether those in power could serve the people and country.

My only wish now is for this country to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic as soon as possible and I believe the current government is trying to do exactly that.

The politicians also need to fix their own houses first for now.

They are in a mess, okay.

Pakatan, despite their complaints should know that they are not yet in shape to wrest back power after the damage they inflicted upon themselves during their infighting.

Dr Mahathir, who led them to the GE14 victory, along with his supporters are no longer with them.

I think I got it right when I said way back then that Dr Mahathir would never let Anwar becomes PM.

He knows that Anwar as Malaysia's PM would be a disaster for the country.

Umno and its BN allies also need to properly get back in shape.

Some of the shits which caused their GE14 defeat are still there and they need to remove those.

Otherwise it's going to be the same nonsense as it used to be.

I'm hoping that the next Umno election, scheduled next year if I'm not mistaken, would be good for that.

The other political entities need to do the same too, except maybe those in Sarawak, which I think are the only stable ones for now.

Well, I guess that should leave us Malaysians with some breathing space to properly get things in order during this Covid-19 recovery period.

The least politicking the better for now.

I also need time to recover financially. Lost quite a bit during the lockdown.

Thought of doing some small online business.

Simple stuff like selling ready-made roti canai and curry puff or even beauty products and indoor sports equipment.

Or maybe I  can use this blog to promote other people's small online businesses.

See lah how.

Okay, I'm going back to resting.

Hope you all have a good weekend too.

Art Harun as parliament speaker should be good

I quite enjoyed watching the reopening parliament session yesterday.


Especially the last bit about the need of some to use talcum powder.

Well, nothing changed with those people,

Whatever it is, I like the appointment of Art Harun as the new parliament speaker.

I like the guy. He is cool.

Despite him being a pro-Pakatan during GE14, the guy is quite sensible.

He proved himself to be so after appointed as Election Commission chairman.

Quite fair and professional.

And I like the way he handled himself yesterday amidst the jeering and clownish antics of the Pakatan MPs.

The speech he made was good.

Congrats to him.

I was so glad that they didn't put a nonsense guy like Tajuddin Rahman as speaker. That would have been a disaster.

Oh, by the way, I think I dislike that fat DAP woman MP the most now.

She's so irritating with her stupidity and shouting yesterday.

Simply making noises to get some attention.

I felt like saying to her: Hey woman, you are fat, ugly and stupid. Please don't try to draw attention to yourself, can or not?

I don't think she's good for DAP's image as the party's front liner.

Hannah Yeoh is better....heck, Teresa Kok too.

Hey, at least Miss Kok was funny with her blur blur ministership back then.

Minum lah sesudu minyak kelapa sawit setiap hari...that's priceless.

Okay, I need to get up now and get ready for the day.

Political maturity, sooner or later

This is stupid,

BN wants to defend all traditional seats, says Annuar Musa

How many BN's traditional seats are there for it to defend after the GE14 defeat, anyway?

How about its Perikatan Nasional ally Pribumi Bersatu then? Where should they contest in GE15? Chinese majority areas?

This Annuar Musa is simply talking without thinking properly.

He's the kind of Umno politician who make people don't like that party.

Because of Kelantan Umno leaders like him, BN was never able to capture that state through the decades.

Why they made him BN sec-gen is beyond me.

Whenever I came across statements by Umno leaders like Annuar Musa, I felt discouraged to write in support of BN, even though I know the other side is a worse option.

And there's a lot of such statements from such useless Umno leaders these days because the party is back in power.

All want to remain relevant and jump back onboard the gravy train.

Real bastards.

Make me so fed up.

Well, that's why I have not been writing much.

Seriously, I hardly pay much attention to politics these past weeks.

I didn't even bother myself about the Chini by-election.

In fact, I'm writing this post while sitting on a bench waiting for someone.

Just killing time.

Surfed for news and saw that stupid Annuar Musa's statement and decided to comment a bit about the stupidity.

Well, I talked with some friends and they said they felt the same about politics these days.

Really, it's not just me.

I know, the political show will go on, but I think it's just going to be a tiresome show.

Well, maybe it's a sign that Malaysians are becoming more matured and don't care much about all the bullshit.

Maybe even the kampung folks feel the same.

After all, we don't really need the politicians except for them to serve us and run the government.

If they do their job FOR US properly, we keep them. Otherwise we just kick them out and replace them with another bunch who may do a better job.

The days of politicians being revered by the people are probably in the past.

They serve us and not us serving them.

They also can't con us with their talks anymore.

Yeah, I like the idea of that.

I already told some of my Umno friends that they shouldn't think they can get all the Malay votes by just talking about Malay unity and such.

Malays also want a good and clean government.

They don't want corrupt or stupid leaders too.

That's why they are willing to vote for a good Chinese guy over a Malay in overwhelming number such as in the Tanjung Piai by-election.


Well, some are still not so smart yet, but I think they will become smart too sooner or later.

Pakatan talks a lot and the people gave them the chance in GE14, but they screwed it up.

Now its the Perikatan Nasional's turn.

Some of them thought they can just sell the Melayu propaganda stuff to win the next election, but I think the people will punish them for that.

The Malays are not a bunch of stupid irrational racists.

I know, I know....DAP managed to do that to get the Chinese to unite behind them using such a trick.

But Malays are not Chinese. They have a different mentality.

Consider this - It's easier for a good Chinese candidate to win in a Malay majority constituency than a good Malay candidate to win in a Chinese majority constituency.

That's a fact, okay.

Even DAP people know that.

If you don't believe me, go and study the campaign and result of the Teluk Intan by-election or the fight for Gelang Patah in GE13.

I can list a whole bunch of similar evidence, but I'm too lazy to do that.

Well, that's my thought for politics this morning.

Yeah, I know, it's just another rambling of mine.

Okay lah, I need to go now.

At least it works better than Pakatan government

A foreigner friend asked me yesterday about the current political situation in Malaysia.

His company has quite a lot of investments here.

Told him that I haven't been keeping myself updated on politics as I'm tired of it, but from what little that I knew, it's actually going nowhere.

Yeah, it's just going in the same merry-go-round as usual.

Shafie Apdal as PM candidate???....okay, out of respect for the elderly, I'm not going to say what I think of Dr Mahathir's state of mind when he proposed that.

Told my friend that it's just the handsome old man telling the world that he doesn't want Anwar as PM, ever. Anything but Anwar, that's what the world should know now about Dr Mahathir's thinking.

And Anwar himself should realise that he's now irrelevant. No way he could lead Pakatan to win the next general election. Even DAP and Amanah know that and rather follow Dr Mahathir.

They are so messed up over there. Some really need to retire from politics too.

Pakatan coming back to power in the immediate future....forget about it, okay.

Having said all that, I have to admit that I'm actually quite fed-up with a lot of people on this other side of the fence too.

Some stupid ministers starting to show their stupidity again, towkays seeking "appointments" with newly minted GLC politician bosses, lackeys trying to make their own deals using their bosses' position etc etc.

Same old sickness.

I think I should give up too on the hope of an early election to allow the people to get rid of the garbage.

That's not going to happen as most of them politicians seemed happy living in their own little ponds for now.

Even the Pakatan politicians are afraid to lose whatever little they still have now if Muhyiddin goes crazy and calls for GE15.

Well, never mind.

As long as the current government works and not screwed up too much, I don't mind.

If it could revive the economy the way it handles Covid-19, I think that would be great.

Yeah, I know, you all may argue that things will get rotten very soon, but till then I'm still okay with this government except for a bit of its stupidity here and there.

At least this government, for now, is still better than the Pakatan's one which was back then was purely driven by stupid politics.

Remember all the blaming they did on the previous BN government? That's about all that the Pakatan government really did during their 22 months rule.

If they come back to power (which I don't think they will for now), I wonder who they would blame for their own shortcomings later on as that's about all that they seemed capable of doing.

Eh, people are tired of their whining, okay.

I'm tired too.

And I have to get up for work now....enough with my rambling for this morning.

Have a good day guys.
