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.
