Commenting from the limbo

Zahid said 

Dr M indoctrinated us to hate DAP


Dr M heads Umno from 1981 to 2003, while DAP was founded in 1965.

How about the first 16 years? Umno didn't hate DAP in those years?

And how about from 2003 onwards? 

Dr M was to be blamed for all the hate over the past 19 years too?

And I thought the hate was mutual. DAP seemed to hate Umno too, okay.

Anthony Loke wants to blame Kit Siang for indoctrinating DAP to hate Umno all those years?

Ya, it's that silly.

Never mind.

Well, I guess, Umno people need to learn to love DAP now that they are in the same camp.

Good lah. Zahid can show the way.

Personally, I never really hated DAP. 

I just disliked the conducts of some of its leaders and members, especially the extremist groups.

Yeah, DAP has extremist groups, like the LTTE and BJP wannabes as well as those who hate the Malays and Muslims for no apparent good reason.

Other than those bunch, I'm okay with the other DAP people.

Really. I have quite a lot of friends among them.

I'm even okay with DAP people who support the Chinese schools. 

In fact I wrote quite a lot in the past about my support for Chinese schools.

Even been in love with one of those Cina Bukit, actually.

I actually wrote this back in Oct 2020

Umno being friends with DAP is nice

I know it was silly, but never mind that.

Now, I just can't be bothered anymore.

Umno, DAP or any of the other parties can do whatever they want and I'll just make sure as much as I could that it would not affect me.

After GE15, there are only two camps, the Pakatan side anchored by the DAP's non-Malay supporters and Perikatan side anchored by PAS' conservative Malay Muslim supporters.

And I don't think I belong to any of the two sides.

I always thought that I'm with BN because it's centrist.

Unfortunately BN got obliterated in GE15 and its leadership, or to be exact Umno leadership decided to join Pakatan.

So, I'm now without a side to support again.

Well, it's not really too bad as I can sit still and continue commenting from the limbo.

By the way, I think I'm done with BN and Umno as they are now.

Umno election is coming but I don't think it would heal the party.

Zahid and the other useless leaders will be returned unopposed as they control the divisions and the shit will continue.

 I can't see the point in supporting a party which eats its own shit, okay.

That's all there is to it.

Between lying bastards and irresponsible idiots

Now, this is cute.

I never said no political appointees in GLCs, expect some: Anwar


“I never said that individuals involved in politics cannot be part of (GLC) management. However, they should be bound by certain conditions and have the required qualifications in the relevant fields."

Okay, whatever lah.

He may as well says;

“I never said that individuals involved in corruption cannot be part of government. However, they should be bound by certain conditions and have the required qualifications in the relevant fields."

Which is actually happening, by the way.

Nah, never mind.

I can't be bothered by all the bullshit anymore.

How about you all?

You all still care about what the politicians are saying?

Nowadays, I only want to care over what they actually do....if any.

Their words don't count for a dime these days, really.

I have concluded that from now on I need to take care of myself rather than hoping for those lying politicians to do things for me and this country.

If they actually do something good instead of bullshitting people, then that's good for them.

If they don't, then fuck it. I wouldn't want to care one bit.

The people? The people voted for those liars, so they deserve what they got.

As simple as that.

Anyway, it's raining quite heavily where I am now.

Been like this for days.

I'm now somewhere near Bukit Istana in Kuantan. This place never get flooded, so, I'm alright.

Elsewhere over 71,000 people were evacuated yesterday. Mostly in Kelantan and Terengganu.

Chose pemimpin Islam pun kena banjir ke? 

So much for being ruled by PAS then.

Heard the Terengganu MB was holidaying in New Zealand despite the state being the worst hit.


See, it's the same shit on the other side too.

Turn left, get lying bastards, turn right, get stupid irresponsible motherfuckers.

Not much of choices, right?

Well, as I said, I'm going to take care of me myself and stop expecting anything from those bums.

I suggest you all do the same.

When being loud is right

 Back in college, one of my law lecturers said something like this;

"When you go to court as a lawyer, you should argue intelligently. If you can't argue intelligently, then you should argue convincingly. But if you can't even argue convincingly, then the best that you can do would be to argue loudly."

I remember the whole class laughed when he said that.

We thought he was just joking.

Turned out that he was not.

Nowadays, loud people have a better chance to be the winners.

People don't care about facts as much as they care about perceptions.

If you can outshout your rivals, you may still win, even when you are in the wrong.

Just look at our social media conversations, and you all would know that it's true.

Those who shouted the loudest and most frequent are the winners.

Now this being loudest thing has reached a new level.

Look at this,

Motion of confidence on PM Anwar passed via voice vote

Yup, there was no voting for the motion.

The Dewan speaker just made the decision to pass it based on who made the most noise on the floor.

So, the louder ones were the winner.


Honestly, I don't really care.

Democracy has after all became a joke in this country since the outcome of the GE15 that day.

I believe more such jokes are coming our way over the next five years.

No point in complaining, okay. 

We voted for this government, remember?

But still, you better be careful with what you shouted out after this.

I actually begin to suspect that this current government will be less tolerant than the previous administrations.

The signs are already there at this early stage that we will have less democratic freedom in the coming years.

You shouted the wrong things, and you may find yourself in the lock up or getting your ass sued off.

I also think that going to rallies such as the Bersih demonstrations of yesteryears is now not a very good idea.

Najib was the PM who stopped the police from beating up street demonstrators and even abolished the ISA.

But then again, the guy was seen by us as being too soft and tried too hard to be nice.

Some even called him Mat Kepit.

Now we have Anwar as PM, a jail-hardened guy.

You try la call him names like that and see what happen.

So, don't fool around. 

The days of baton wielding FRU and water cannon may be back, okay.

"Oh, those violent protesters are just Islamist extremists. They deserve to be beaten and locked up. We are just ensuring peace and stability in the country as according to the laws," they would say.

And in a way they would be right. 

This country needs the peace and stability to move forward, especially during the coming global recession.


Who cares? We already turned it into a joke the other day, what.

Sunday 18 December 2022

Forced votes of confidence

The politicians will have another show at Dewan Rakyat tomorrow.

First before all else, they will vote to confirm whether Anwar has the majority needed to be PM.

The parties which were supposed to vote for Anwar have already signed an MOU to compel their MPs to toe the line.

Among the points of agreement under the MOU was that the parties would sack any of their MPs who votes against Anwar and vacate his/her seat.

I believe that's illegal.

You can't take away an MP's seat just because he/she voted in Dewan Rakyat against the wishes of the party leadership.

So said legal experts who have commented on the matter.

The MOU was obviously done to scare the rebels in those parties, especially those in BN.

I suspect half (some said more than 20) of the 30 BN MPs were against Anwar and the tie up with Pakatan.

If they voted against Anwar, then the so-called unity government would be under pressure again.

The Sarawakians and Sabahans could switch sides again, if push comes to shove.

Then again those rebel BN MPs need balls of steel to defy the MOU threat.

After all, if the whole thing goes to court, I'm not sure they will win despite the rather obvious legal points against the legality of the MOU.

The courts, I think, have been rather funny since 2018, if you know what I mean.

If I'm one of those rebel BN MPs, I just don't turn up for the voting.

That would be a safer way to register the protest, I guess.

There would be other votings in the Dewan Rakyat to go all out against Anwar being the PM.

The party leaders, who are propping up Anwar could not possibly sign an MOU every time there is voting in parliament.

But all these mean the country will not be stable over the coming years.

The administration would be as shaky as the others since 2018.

I already highly doubt it could successfully handle the coming global recession.

Now, signs were already there that Anwar's rule will not be as democratic as many would like to believe it would be.

His early moves looked more and more similar to the way things were done back when he was the protege of Dr Mahathir in the 1990s.

Anwar, who was not really a champion of democracy at that time now looked as if he's preparing to rule Malaysia for a few terms well into his 80s or maybe 90s, maybe to match or outdo the legacy of his former mentor.

No signs of real reforms that he and his supporters had always shouted during the rallies, which sometimes got violent over the years.

I'm quite concerned about this.

Well, hopefully I'm wrong.

Monday 12 December 2022

It's real, and it's coming

As I previously wrote, we need this government to handle the coming global recession more than anything else.

Like it or not we better pray that it'll works.

It's all we have to handle the shit.

Having said that, I have to admit that I'm not very optimistic right now.

The Cabinet line-up looks not very convincing.

It was set up not to handle the coming recession but instead to satisfy political needs.

We are not getting the best people in the Cabinet to handle the troubles coming at us.

The set-up is for the survival of those politicians themselves instead of us and the country.

Anwar the PM appointed himself to be the finance minister and his deputies for that portfolio are Ahmad Maslan and Steven Sim.

Honestly, do you think that's the best people to handle our country's finances with the recession coming our way?

What? Give them a chance?

It's the country's fucking economy, okay.

How can I give a chance on that to those clowns.

Ya, ya, ya...people voted them.


We are fucked because we let ourselves get fucked.

Never mind.

Let's not even talk about Zahid as DPM and such.

People voted for the clowns, so accept it as it is.

All we can do now is to pray that hopefully the clowns won't fuck up too much.

What choice do we have, anyway.

The Perikatan guys would probably give us another bunch of clowns to run the country too.

Really never mind....I'm just bitching.

I know now that I have to deal with the coming recession on my own at personal level.

Can't hope for this government to help me.

Might as well. 

It's filled with a bunch of liars anyway.

Okay, I need to really be careful with my spendings from now on.

My savings could only be stretched so far and I think the recession may go on for at least the next two or three years. 

I'm planning to even cut down on my food intake.

Good also because I'm fat now.

No more new clothes.

No more outings.

Yeah, the more I go out of the house, the more I'll spend.

I'm going to treat the recession as another wave of Covid-19 pandemic.

Sorry, I can't offer any other advice.

You all have to deal with the recession in your own ways.

I have no answer for those who are yet to have any saving, especially the young people who have just joined the working world.

Can't advise the B40 much too as my problems are not the same as theirs.


The government is supposed to help those people, but as I said, after looking at its Cabinet line-up, I'm not very optimistic about it.

Just look at the credentials of Anwar, Ahmad Maslan and Steven Sim, okay.

Why la they put Ahmad Maslan and not Jo Ghani there? 


Is political survival more important than getting the best guy to do the job for the country?

Anwar, you don't want to be overshadowed by a deputy who knows how to handle the recession better than you, is it?

So stupid.

I've seen how Anwar handled a recession as a finance minister in the late 90s and was not impressed. The country was almost fucked, big time, okay.

Still, shouldn't complain too much.

We voted them, so we should accept what's coming our way.

Honestly, I feel like I'm in that movie "Don't Look Up" right now.

Quite helpless, actually.

Padang Serai and Tioman: Most Malays don't seem to like the PH-BN union

The outcome of polling for the Padang Serai parliamentary seat in Kedah and Tioman state seat in Pahang indicated that most Malays are not very enthusiasticly supportive of the so-called PH-BN unity government. 

Padang Serai, which was won by PKR over the last three general elections was yesterday taken over by Perikatan with a more than convincing majority while the BN candidate, who have hold the Tioman seat also for the past three terms saw his majority reduced by more than half from that he won in 2018.

In Padang Serai, PN's Azman Nasrudin received 51,637 or 56.49 per cent of the votes to beat PH's Mohamad Sofee Razak, who received 35,377 or 38.70 per cent of the votes.

The constituents in Padang Serai are 62.34 per cent Malays, 19.30 per cent Indians, 17.64 per cent Chinese, and less than one per cent of other ethnicities.

Let's say PH got all the non-Malay votes, that's 37.94 per cent from the total votes. After all, over 90 per cent of non-Malays voted for PH in the recently concluded GE15.

That nonetheless means the PH candidate got only about one per cent from the 62.34 per cent Malay votes.

Of course the voters turn out was 68.95 per cent, but still the racial percentage should be about the same as the total number of eligible voters. 

Most glaringly, PKR's winner candidates for the constituency in the past three general elections were Indians while for this one, the guy they put there is a Malay.

That suggests the Malays in Padang Serai are this time quite united to give the seat to PN. 

Also should be noted that almost 3,000 voters still voted for BN despite its Indian candidate's announcement that he had pulled out of the race in support of the PH candidate.

These voters I believe are BN hardcore supporters who couldn't make themselves give their votes to either PN or PH. They are probably Umno rebels who now hate the party's leadership.

The situation looks the same in Tioman where the constituents are almost 90 per cent Malays.

BN managed to cling on to the seat but only barely.

Its candidate Johari Hussain won by a majority of only 573 compared to 1,280 in 2018.

PN has definitely made its inroad on the island as well as other parts of Pahang.

MB Rosdy bravely said BN's win in Tioman means the people (particularly the Malays) have accepted the PH-BN union, but I think he was saying that just to make himself feels good more than anything else.

Deep in his heart, I believe, Rosdy must be saying "Shit, something needs to be done or otherwise we are going to lose the whole state in the next election".

I honestly don't know what Umno could do to stop the PN's advances, particularly among the Malays.

Talks among Umno people indicated that things will not change.

Zahid, after all has 130 division chiefs in his pocket.

Now that he's DPM, there's more reason to believe that he will stay as Umno president all the way to the next general election.

And so would those division chiefs in his pocket.

Therefore, I expect no change in Umno despite all the indications that Malays are switching to Pas and Bersatu.

I expect things would be worse for Umno if Anwar's government fails to handle the coming recession, causing the rakyat, particularly Malays to suffer more than ever.

Even now, the Malays appear to be rejecting the current government, what's more if they have to endure more hardship over the next five years.

Shut up and work, ministers

I really think that the prime minister and his people in the Cabinet should just stop talking and instead be focused on their work preparing the country for the coming recession.

The more they talk, the bigger liars they seemed to be.

Yesterday, Rafizi denied that he had threatened the MACC chief for checking up his company Invoke before the election.

He even blamed the media for getting his words wrong.

Those journalists didn't go to school, aren't they?

Why are you only denying it now?

Stop it lah Rafizi.

Your words don't worth a dime after all the kelentong you did during the election campaign.

You should just shut up and do your work.

Anyway, what is this Economic Affairs Ministry is going to do?  We already have finance ministry, Miti, etc. 

Cooking up more stupid theories?

And what is that nonsense of Rafizi being proud of being sued many times for his simply hantam exposes. That's just plain stupidity.

Anwar should also cut down on the politicking and work properly.

Why the f@#k is he wasting time threatening Muhyiddin over the Covid funds thing?

Nothing better to do, is it?

If you have evidence, just let the enforcement agencies charge the guy in court lah.

Threatening for what.

His stupid information chief Fahmi should also stop flaunting police actions against Pakatan's political opponents.

Talked so much of not interfering with the work of enforcement agencies, yet keep saying that PM Anwar has ordered the police to do this and that even over the most silly things.

All this reminded me of how Anwar used to control the media during his stint as Dr Mahathir's deputy in the late 1990s.

So much for all those talks about freedom of opinion and expression.

Okay, your side won the election. Doesn't matter that you lied to win. Now is time for you to at least do the work that you promised the people.

Stop bullshitting and witch hunting.

Just work.

If you do a good job, people will likely forget that you lied to them.

Malaysians tend to be like that.

People don't want to hear your nonsense anymore and they also don't want more trouble if you try to put Muhyiddin and Hadi in jail like what you did to Najib.

You think those crazy Pas people will not do crazy things if you try to put Hadi in jail for allegedly calling Anwar a Zionist shill?

Think again, okay.

We can't afford the risk of such shit going into the recession.

What we need now is a functioning government and that's all that matter.

All the lies and bullshit should be dealt with in the next election and not now.

Saturday 3 December 2022

Is it Anwar's cabinet or wardrobe?

There have been a lot of moaning, bitching and gnashing of teeth after Anwar announced his Cabinet line-up last night.

Many were unhappy with Zahid's appointment as DPM and Anwar holding the finance portfolio for himself.

Some were unhappy that only one Indian becomes minister.

My auntie, who was a TKC girl was unhappy that Anwar put several of his MCKK juniors in the Cabinet. 

Ya, why did he put Zafrul there? The guy even lost in Kuala Selangor what.

Many more complaints lah.

Hey guys, stop it, okay.

We voted for this government. 

Even if you didn't vote for Pakatan, you were part of the democratic process to elect this Anwar's government.

Now you have to accept it.

Let it works for now.

After all, we need it to handle next year's global recession.

That's the priority.

Okay, if it screws up, then we can always whack it again.

I know, Pakatan supporters are the most disappointed of the lot because they didn't expect this kind of Cabinet line-up.

They expected it to be something like the one they had in 2018, but without Dr Mahathir and his boys.

This one looks a bit like Umno Cabinet 2.0 - an all powerful PM surrounded by mostly Malay loyalist ministers.

Well, let me share this message forwarded to me by a DAP friend in her effort to console herself;

I think this is a necessary line up for the time being. 

1. Firstly Zahid need to be TPM so he can control the rest of the backstabbers in UMNO. If he loses power he'll lose his UMNO presidency and this Unity gomen will bite the dust. The traitors and backstabbers like Hishamuddin and Ismail are waiting for Zahid to go. So putting him as DPM is a necessary evil. 

2. I think the deal with Zahid is Anwar won't interfere with his court case and if he's found guilty he'll have to resign or be replaced. His case plus appeals etc may take another 2-3 years and that buys enough time for Anwar to clean up a lot of shit and put the right people in place.

3. With all the racial nonsense brewing .... PAS & PN are kicking up, this lineup will shut them up. One Indian and 3 Chinese ministers can't take over the gomen nor destroy the Malays for sure. This again is necessary to quell the Malay/Muslim population from more dissention and no reason for them to listen to those towelheads spewing nonsense.

4. This buying time is crucial for Anwar to put things in place. Eventually some ministers will be replaced/removed and by those who can do the job.

5. The key positions that are of utmost importance are held by capable and trusted ppl ie. Finance & more monkey business😁

Right now it doesn't matter how many PKR or DAP ministers appointed. What's important is Anwar is in control😉

So, Pakatan people, you all feel better after reading that?

Be calm, okay.

Umno people, you all happy or not your president becomes DPM?

You even got Khaled Nordin back in his higher education portfolio during Najib's time.

Best kan.

Hope he'll not lose it like he lost Johor in 2018.


Meanwhile, a Perikatan friend seemed jovial this morning, probably because he now has a lot of ammunition to fire at his Pakatan and Barisan enemies.

The guy sent me this edited video of a Mat Sabu's cheramah;

Ha ha ha...very funny.

How Anwar can prevent Sheraton Move 2.0

The media has been vigorously highlighting statements that suggest BN will not abandon Anwar's "unity government".

Today they have this one;

No more ‘Sheraton Moves’: BN MPs scoff at Perikatan man’s prediction that unity govt won’t last

Yeah, sure.

The story featured two Umno guys, one of whom was the party's vice-president Khaled Nordin.

Yup, that Khaled, who lost Johor and both that parliament and state seats he contested when he was an MB in 2018, before running off to the BN's safe seat in Kota Tinggi for GE15.

So much for being a vice-president.

The way I see it, Umno is really becoming like a little company dishing out vice-president titles to its Tom, Dick and Harry sales people to make them seem important to potential clients.

Pathetic, really.

Anyway, I believe that Umno leaders such as Khaled really need the party to stay in the unity government to survive the coming party election.

If they don't get to be ministers or deputy ministers, then they would have nothing to show to their supporters.

Well, I don't mind as I also want the government to survive.

As I repeatedly said, we need a government to face the coming global recession. Pakatan or Perikatan, doesn't matter.

We can't afford another ding dong political game for the coming crisis.

So, Anwar better give those Umno leaders their ministerial posts so that they could survive their party election and keep supporting his administration.

Zahid, Tok Mat, Ismail Sabri, Khaled and even that loser Mahdzir Khalid who could be made a senator or something.

Never mind the low quality.

Anything, as long as the government survives.

I know, it's hard to swallow, but that's the reality now.

If I have my way, I don't want Umno to even be part of the government as they don't deserve it after their worst defeat in history.

But that's simply not going to be, and I have accepted it.

If those Umno leaders were killed off at their party election, the rebels are almost certain to take the party out of Anwar's government along with their allies in Sabah and Sarawak.

Some argued that would be derhaka to the Agong.

On what basis?

The royalty are after all not suppose to be involved in politics.

The constitution is supreme when it comes to this matter, okay.

If the potential defection gives Perikatan the number in parliament, then Anwar's administration would probably have a shorter life than the short-lived Ismail Sabri's administration.

But that's not even the worst part.

While the wrangling goes on, the recession will set in and the rakyat are the ones to suffer.

I'm already digging my trenches. 

I have stopped buying stuff that I don't really need and even getting used to eating Maggi again.

I actually have not been out of the house since GE15 almost two weeks ago.

Less movement, less costs.

Need to stretch my savings at least until the worst of the recession is over.

Guan Eng could be K-drama star too

 It looks like the calls for Zaid Hamidi to be included in Anwar's unity Cabinet is gaining traction.

As I put it in my last post, many Chinese who used to whack the Umno president of being an evil corrupted crook have repented.

They even see him as handsome as a K-pop idol now.

Today, Tian Chua also joined the chorus of wanting Zahid to join the Cabinet.

Several Umno leaders have already openly said they wanted Zahid to be the DPM.


I don't care even if Zahid becomes the PM.

It's not going to affect my life by much.

After all, the guy has saved Malaysia from Pas' Islamic conservatism that day.

It's only right for Anwar and like minded Malaysians to reward him with their trust.

I think those in Pakatan who are still against Zahid are those who are suffering from pre-GE15 Umno whacking hang over.

Guys, just lick back that spit of yours and accept the reality of this unity government.

Many Umno people are forcing themselves to do the same too, okay.

Do it for the sake of the country.

We are facing a global recession and for that we need this unity government to work.

If it collapses, we all are going to suffer.

Swallow your pride, at least until the recession is over.

On the plus side, if Zahid becomes DPM, you all can have Guan Eng and Syed Sadiq in the Cabinet too.

Those two also have court cases, remember?

One thing I know is that Zahid and Guan Eng actually loves one another very much since way back then.

Remember this?

See, those two can work together.

Their court cases?

Anwar already said "one is innocent until proven guilty".

Proven guilty also can be pardoned what.

All those fiery accusations before the election are just political talks lah.

Anyway, if you all make the effort to edit Guan Eng's picture like they did to Zahid's picture, that once handsomest Chinese guy in Malaysia could look like a K-drama star too.

I think he would look like Park Yoonchun of the Rooftop Prince fame.

New Malay darling of the Chinese

Remember back then when Mat Sabu was the Malay darling of Pakatan's Chinese supporters?

That despite Mat Sabu being anything but handsome.

Well, I don't think that's the case anymore.

They have a new Malay darling now.

And nope, it's not Anwar.

Okay, PKR people may insist on Anwar's handsomeness and new premiership, but he is not the new Malay darling of DAP's Chinese supporters.

It's Zahid Hamidi la.

Yup, that Umno president who led his party to its worst defeat in GE15.

They are singing praises of him in the social media after Zahid pushed BN to join Anwar's unity government instead of going over to Perikatan.

They must have been so relieved that Zahid, despite being whacked by them as the greatest corrupted crook decided not to hand over power to Pas, which dominates Perikatan.

They think Zahid is a Chinese saviour, I guess.

Okay, Malaysians saviour.....whatever.

I came to this conclusion after receiving this social media post from a friend last night,

Here, I put the whole thing in texts for your reading pleasure;

Sebenarnya atas permintaan Sdr Akram Tajuddin yang merujuk kpd post Akmal Hisyam Mokhles yang menaikkan gambar screen shoot dari FB berbahasa Cina dgn meminta saya menterjemahkannya.

Dalam tulisan mereka menggambarkan Zahid Hamidi telah menyelamatkan keadaan dan tentulah disebabkan mereka menolak PN.

Saya sudahpun membuat balasan di post Akmal Hisyam Mokhles, saya juga salinkan terjemahan tersebut utk pembaca FB saya.

Saya terjemahkan yang penting saja.

Virile Heng
Tiba-tiba saya rasa dia bukanlah seperti yang dibenci oleh orang.

Jenny Bao Bao
Zahid 哥今天最帅了
Abang Zahid hari inilah yang paling hensem.

Pada ketika ini rasanya dia sangat hensem.

William Lao
Saya sayang awak Zahid, kita semua adalah satu keluarga.

Garry Lim
Zahid adalah stabil.

Leong KL
Abang Zahid, kami sokong kamu

Nelson Tee
Cakap sejujurnya, jika tiadalah dia, tentu tiada hari ini.

Pak Michelle
希哥! 加油
Abang Zahid, teruskan @ go go go

Brando Lim
Saya sekarang nampak muka kamu.
(Disertakan muka Zahid sekarang dan muka Zahid yg diedit awit muda)

Fandi Goo
Terlalu hensem
(Disertakan gambar Zahid berpakaian baju Melayu & bersamping semacam yg selalu digunakan dalam majlis di istana)

Really. They go all out to make Zahid looks handsome.

In fact they even edited Zahid's photo to make him looks like a K-pop idol.

Not bad at all, isn't it?

Told you all already, Javanese men could be quite handsome.

So, all those grieving Umno people, you all better keep Zahid as party president as he will bring in the Chinese votes that MCA so miserably failed to bring over to BN.

Next election lah, I mean.

Malay votes? That one, I don't know lah.

Post GE15 Anwar and Umno

 I'm still waiting for fuel prices to go down.

Anwar said fuel prices will go down within 24 hours after he became PM.

Maybe he needs more time.

Oh, and they said there will be no more tolls at the highways.

I'm waiting for that too.

Ya, ya, I know those are all just bullshit, but who knows somehow they could be done.

Maybe Anwar's patrons in US can pump in more money and we could afford all that.

Hopefully they don't later turn up saying that they can't do all that because BN is in the government too.

Last time they blamed Dr Mahathir for it.

Yup, that's why I prefer BN to be in the opposition.

Buta-buta kena blame nanti.

So far, my life remains the same.

Not so good but not so bad either.

Some Umno friends asked me what to do.

How would I know.

I just told them to fix their party.

Change the top five and division chiefs. Even Tok Mat.

They don't like it and said that can't be done.

I said, that's the only thing they could do.

At least try lah.

As long as the top leaders pay the division chiefs to arrange for them to be elected in party elections, Umno can't be fixed.

That's how the crooks became Umno leaders, okay.

They need to remember that Umno members whom the majority don't get to elect their party leaders, still get to vote in general elections.

Those unhappy with their party leaders voted rival parties in the general election.

I believe hundreds of thousands of them voted for Perikatan in GE15 just because they don't want Zahid to remain the president of their party and even worse becomes PM.

"Tak apa undi Perikatan. Dia orang pun Melayu dan memperjuangkan Islam juga," they said.

That's how BN went kaput that day, just months after their landslide victories in Melaka and Johor.

Still, Zahid has 130 Umno division leaders backing him for obvious reasons.

That, despite Umno's worst election defeat in history.

That's how screwed up Umno is now.

Well, why should I care.

I'm not an Umno member.

I supported it because it's a centrist Malay party, unlike Islamist hardliner Pas.

Now Pas commands the support of the Malay majority.

They now control all the Malay dominated states - Kelantan, Terengganu, Kedah and Perlis.

They almost got Pahang.

Don't forget, Pas' influence is seeping into the urban areas too.

That's what happened in Perak.

The much vilified Umno was the one who stopped them.

Lucky for many that Umno decided to side with Pakatan.

But how long will that lasts with Umno dying as it is.

If this Pakatan-led unity government fails to handle the Malay Muslims problems, Pas will get even more urban Malays' votes in the next election.

Pakatan people could in fact help Pas do that with their stupid behaviour such was displayed after their victory in 2018.

Ya, they need to shut up. 

Dong Zong, LGBT activists, BJP/LTTE wannabes and others need to shut up.

If they refuse to shut up, then we are going to have a full fledge Islamic government even before the end of this term.

Umno will abandon the unity government if Pakatan fails to control its people.

Personally, I don't really mind being ruled by Pas.

I spend most of my time at home. I don't go clubbing and such. I don't own shares or businesses. So, no problem.

Having to wear tudung would be a bit of a problem, but it wouldn't kill me.

But for others, it would not be very pleasant.

Trust me on that, okay.

Unity pakatan government, okay lah

 Well, Perikatan's offer to BN came too late and now Anwar is the PM.

Yup, they were just too slow.

If they have become the government, they would also be too slow.

Exactly why I had in my previous posts said Pakatan would be a better government than Perikatan.

Lesser of two evil in that matter.

I'm disappointed though because reports so far indicated that BN will join the new government.

I was hoping for BN to be in the opposition.

Just not right for losers of a general election to be in the government.

But that how it is going to be.

The Pakatan supporters are celebrating now.

However, I don't know how they are going to react once Anwar revealed to them what concessions were made to BN.

I know though that half of BN, especially Umno are not happy with their party's decision.

Zahid, who was responsible in helming them to their worst election defeat in history was the driving force behind the cooperation with Pakatan.

Yup, that Zahid who Pakatan and Perikatan people said is a corrupted crook.

If the unity government is truly the saviour of Malaysia, then by right Zahid should be hailed as a national hero.

But of course that would not be the case.

Poor Zahid.

By the way, there's a rebellion brewing within the Umno ranks against Zahid and the party's election would be just around the corner.

If Zahid is defeated and kicked out by Umno, this unity government will be in trouble.

So, Pakatan, through its connections with rich guys around the country should do something to help Zahid.

You all said what, Umno can be bought.

Anyway, I don't believe Zahid will now be convicted of those corruption charges too.

And I think Najib will get a royal pardon, just like Anwar previously.

I know, I know. Rule of law. They all said that lah.

What? You all angry that I said that?

Hey, you all want reconciliation or not?

Najib could in fact help Zahid put down the impending Umno rebellion and saves the unity government.

Umno also needed to be revived to stop the Malay conservatism that has swept the country with the rise of Pas during GE15.

Umno is the main Malay party of Pakatan now.

Even DAP should know this.

The one they have now called Amanah would not be able to stop Pas.

Okay, we don't know for sure yet the details of this unity government, so I don't know how much Pakatan was willing to go in the effort to tie the knot with BN, particularly Umno.

Once I know that, I'll write again.

Anyway, I wish DAP could offer an apology to Umno like what it did to the Sarawakians.

You know, for calling Umno corrupted, racist, evil etc.

That would strengthen the unity government quite a lot.

But of course not, DAP has its pride too. Apologising to Umno would be too hard for them.

Still, they need to remember, if not for Umno, they would be living under a truly Malay Islamic government headed by Pas.

Pas, you want a truly Malay Islamist government?

 Umno last night said it will join a unity government as long as it's not led by PN.

I read it as

1. BN will join PH and probably get the DPM and tonnes of minister posts.


2. BN will join PN and get the PM and tonnes of minister posts.

It all now depends on whether PN is willing to give BN what it wants.

PH has already indicated that it will give BN what it wants.

In Perak and Pahang, PH gave BN all kind of stuff without BN even asking anything.


Because PH, in particular DAP is so scared of the possible rise of a truly Malay Islamist government if BN joins PN.

As for Anwar, he just wants to be PM and willing to give anything for it.

So, now the ball is in PN's court.

It all depends on whether PN is willing to counter offer what PH is offering BN.

I think the PN's decision lies with Pas, which is now the dominant party in PN.

Muhyiddin will have to listen to Hadi.

Just now, I saw a story of Hadi indicating that he is still confident of getting what Pas wanted that is a truly Malay Islamist government.

Ya, Agong wanted a more racially diverse unity government, but the Constitution only talk about the numbers.

GPS, which stated that it will follow BN will make up the number if PN agrees to give in to BN.

For them it would be the same set-up as before the GE15.

Sarawak will always be insulated from the political nonsense in the peninsular, after all.

Sarawakians' perceived fear of Pas is actually about the same level as their loathing of DAP.

For many of them, Pas is an extremist Islamist party while DAP is an extremist Chinese chauvinistic party. 

Nonetheless, GPS knows that BN will make sure to help them shield Sarawak from those two.

Again, all this will depend on whether PN can swallow its pride and let BN with its just 30 seats in parliament to lead them.

Personally, I still stand on wanting BN as the opposition and fix its house.

The rakyat had voted them to be the opposition and that's where they should be.

PH or PN can be the government for all I care.

For me, both are more or less the same - useless.

Wednesday 23 November 2022

BN, get out of the longkang and save the rakyat, please

 Everything that I wrote in my last post actually happened yesterday.

1. BN decided to be the opposition and not support either PN or PH.

2. Agong told PN and PH to form a unity government, which would gives them a super majority in parliament, thus a stable government for the country.

3. The Agong's proposed PN-PH unity government got rejected because too much ego involved.

4. Agong turned to BN for help to decide who should he choose to form a government which is good for the rakyat.

BN has already said that it doesn't want to get involved in the mess anymore.

They just want to rest and fix their broken house.

I support their decision because the rakyat has rejected them already. 

The rakyat believed what PN and PH said about BN being corrupted and evil. 

They chose PN and PH to take care of their interests.

Unfortunately PN and PH can't think of the rakyat's interests even with the looming global recession hanging over everyone's head.

They are more concerned about who's going to be the prime minister, how many minister posts they would get etc.

Now BN has to once again come to rescue the rakyat.

Yup, the rakyat who rejected them.

The country cannot go into the impending recession without a government.

Everything will collapse if that happens.

The market is already suffering from the current political impasse.

Just like when the PH government collapsed in 2020, BN has to once again come in and provide a foundation for a stable government.

Remember ya, the Sheraton Move didn't involve BN.

The so-called backdoor government only happened because the Muhyiddin gang approached BN to provide the country with a government.

And BN was the one who made the government worked to a certain extent at that time.

The BN ministers are the ones who did most of the good work. 

Example; KJ, who handled the Covid crisis relatively well. You all can name someone from Pribumi Bersatu or PAS who could do a better job at that time?

And the rakyat then kicked KJ into the longkang. Sigh.

Muhyiddin himself screwed up back then, thus the kerajaan gagal tag for which he was forced to resign.

Now he is on the brink of becoming PM again.

This is the kind of leaders that the rakyat chose over those in BN.

I'm not sure what BN will say when they meet the Agong, 

They already said they don't want to get involved, but this is for the rakyat.

As I wrote in my last post, if the Agong asks BN to help save the rakyat, then they should do so.

I know, I know, the rakyat just kicked BN into the longkang.

Never mind that BN. 

Just get back up, climb out of the longkang and save them again.

The recession is coming, okay and we need a government to handle it.

Just choose the better one between those two clowns.

That's the best that you all could do.

After that go back into your opposition corner and do your best to help the rakyat from there.

Who to choose?

As I wrote in my last post, I prefer Pakatan.

The PAS and Pribumi Bedrsatu guys in PN had already proven that they can't perform as a government when the country was facing the last crisis which include the Covid pandemic.

BN had to prop them up for that back then.

Now let's see how PH handles the global recession.

I suspect they can't handle it too but let's just try.

As they keep saying, give them a chance.

At least there's a 50:50 chance they may succeed. With PN, I'm quite sure they will fail, just like when they screwed up after the Sheraton Move.

Suggesting for BN to back PH really hurts, okay....but what else could I do.


No choice. Have to choose the lesser evil.

Anyway, if PH's turned out to be another screwed up government, BN could always pull out its support and we can have another general election.

Maybe as early as next year.

Why not? It happened in other countries. Even in Europe.

Hopefully the rakyat make a better choice if that happens instead of the current mess. 

Sorry rakyat, you all simply have to endure this country being experimented on since 2018.

But it's your choice, okay.

Ini kali lah!


As you said back then.

Now the evil corrupted BN has to once again get out of the longkang that you all kicked them into to save you.

Between Pakatan and Perikatan

 Umno deputy president Mat Hasan posted this last night;

"Kami BN menerima keputusan rakyat yang menolak BN. Maka kami ini tak ada kuasa untuk menubuhkan kerajaan.

Saya cadangkan biarlah PN dan PH bergabung tubuh kerajaan sebab mereka mendapat bilangan nombor undi yang lebih tinggi. BN bersedia menjadi pembangkang yg bertanggungjawab 'check and balance' kerajaan baru.

Walaubagaimanapun, jika bantuan kami diperlukan dalam waktu peralihan pasca PRU ini, kami tetap sedia menyumbang kepada pembukaan bicara yang ikhlas dan terbuka.

Kalau masih tak dapat juga tubuh kerajaan, tolong jangan salahkan kami. Ini hasil daripada proses yang demokratik, untuk memulangkan mandat kepada rakyat. Kami hanya menghormati keputusan itu.

Semoga Malaysia sentiasa berada dalam peliharaan Allah SWT jua."

I fully support this.

As I put it in my last post, I prefer BN to stay out of the coming government.

No need to tear itself apart for those jokers.

One side want to go with Zahid to Pakatan, another side want to go with Hishammuddin to Perikatan.

That's just stupid.

The overwhelming majority of rakyat don't want BN as the government, so it has no business being in the government lah.

A reader of this blog, whom I suspect was a Pakatan supporter commented in my last post that Mat Hasan was whining and more or less said its BN's duty to be part of a coalition to form the government.

Well, I do understand that Pakatan people hate BN, but that's not the way to win them over so that your side can form the government.

At least try to be polite when you need someone's help.

By the way, Mat Hasan was not whining and it's not BN's responsibility to help others to form the government.

You all voted them to be the opposition, so their duty is to be the opposition.

Anyway, back to being polite, the only reason that Pakatan is currently doing better than Perikatan in winning over BN was because their leaders were nicer about it.

That's what happened in Perak and Pahang.

The new Umno's Perak MB explained it yesterday. 

The Pakatan leaders were quick to approach him and made a good offer.  

The Perikatan leaders were slow and refused to counter the Pakatan's offer, probably demanding a kow tow instead.

I really don't blame him for accepting the Pakatan's offer.

The same thing is playing out in Pahang.

That Pahang DAP guy Leong Ngah Ngah was very nice about the whole thing.

I know Leong since way back in the mid 2000s when he was the only opposition Adun in the state assembly but quite well liked by his Umno counterparts.

The guy had cancer back then, but appeared to be still well until today.

The Perikatan gang of Pas and Pribumi Bersatu on the other hand never really made the necessary move, probably because they were still smug over winning the Malays' votes.

"Let Umno come and beg from us. We are the dominant Malay parties now," they probably thought.

Some in Umno appeared to be willing to do that.

Demi perpaduan ummah, they rationalised.

No DAP, no Anwar.....and they conveniently forgot the "No Pribumi Bersatu" part.

Maybe they are stupid enough not to see that it was Perikatan which ate up their Malay support base in this election. 

And now they are willing to kiss the feet of Pas and Pribumi Bersatu and become their running boys.

What? That's going to win back their Malay support base, is it?

Some argued that Umno will be totally abandoned by the Malays if seen being friends with DAP.

Hey, Pas and Pribumi Bersatu are both ex-friends of DAP what, and that's not that long ago.

How come now they are the dominant Malay parties?

And you all Umno people were not DAP friends in this election, yet the Malays still kicked you into the longkang.

Eh, really la, just fix your party for now.

Be the opposition that Malaysians want you all to be for the time being.

All these government stuff leave it to Pakatan and Perikatan to fix.

Malaysians voted them to do that, so it's their responsibility. Not yours.

Just sack any of your MPs, who doesn't want to follow the party line. 

Ya, that's how I see it.

Okay, let's say the Agong asks for BN to help because Pakatan and Perikatan can't fulfil their responsibility as the ones voted by the rakyat to form the government. Then, help la.

Just give support to the better side but don't join them in government.

If you ask me, I would choose to let Pakatan be the government.

I know it's shitty but I think they could manage the country better than Perikatan.

Okay, they were bad when last time they were in power, but perhaps they have learnt their lessons.

Maybe their leaders and supporters will not be so kurang ajar anymore such as when Adib died back then.

If they still behave like shit in government, BN can always pull back its support and we can have another general election.


Nah, they'll run the country to the ground, I think.

Remember the kerajaan gagal and Covid episodes?

If not for the BN ministers, things would had been much worse.

After all, we can't afford to have some sort of political ustaz being appointed as finance minister to manage the coming global recession next year.

That would be a real disaster.

Well, then again, that's just my own personal thoughts in this early morning.

I hope BN, in particular Umno, will make the best choice.


Sunday 20 November 2022

BN staying as an opposition is a good idea

 I like this;

Umno info chief Isham doesn’t want BN to be part of any coalition government


“We shouldn’t join any coalition government. The rakyat has chosen us to be the opposition, and we should respect their wishes,” he said in a statement today.

“Now, as an opposition, we in Umno and BN can rebuild our credibility and the rakyat’s confidence in us, compared to if we become part of the government. We should be courageous enough to be a strong opposition,” he said.

Yup, why should BN be propping up a government led by PH or PN.

BN, in particular Umno should now be focused on repairing its own house now that the rakyat proved to have believed in all those vile things said about it.

Umno after all needs to replace its leaders who failed the party in GE15.

Let PH or PN handle the coming global recession.

When Covid hit us, it was ministers from Umno like KJ who handled it.

And he handled it well.

Clearly KJ was not appreciated yesterday.

Why should good Umno leaders like KJ goes through shit like that.

Let some ustaz from Pas handle the Health Ministry now.

Oh, and another ustaz can also handle the finance ministry and come up with plans to manage the coming recession next year.

Let's see what's going to happen.

Let's see how PN or PH handles the storm without a clear majority in parliament.

Yeah, let's do that.

Pas rules as Pakatan loses too

Well, the people had spoken....or rather the Malays had spoken.

They decided to change Umno with Pas.

Yup, Pas is the Malays' dominant party now and they will control the coming new government.

Sorry Pakatan people, you all still lose and this time the effect will be worse.

It's almost certain that the new government will have a Pribumi Bersatu PM but controlled by Pas.

It's going to be a coalition of PN, BN, GPS and GRS, which would have a comfortable majority of  131 seats in parliament.

How did this happen?

Pakatan's attack on Umno, especially about Zahid becoming PM if BN wins really works....for Pas.

Instead of switching to Pakatan, the Malays switched to Perikatan.

Pas now has 44 seats, Pribumi Bersatu 28 and Umno 26.

DAP has 40 seats while PKR has 31 seats, which are both smaller than Pas'.  Mat Sabu's Amanah has 8 seats.

And no one wants to partner least not for now. Nobody else wants to go back to 2018.


Those are all bullshit....mine too.

Well, at least mine was my one person's opinion, unlike those made by multi-million ringgit units such as Invoke, Merdeka Centre etc.

What would I know, as this is the first time I didn't really go on the ground during a general election since 1999. I really didn't have the budget to do that.

What's next?

As I previously wrote, my biggest concern was the coming global recession and I was hoping for Malaysians to decisively vote for a strong and stable government to handle it.

They didn't exactly do that but still the most likely coalition which I mentioned above would have 131 seats which is stable enough.

Whether it has the ability to handle the impending crisis would be a different matter.

Nonetheless, Malaysians, you all have made your decision and better stick to it.

Like it or not, we have to support the coming government and pray that it has what needed for us to weather the storm.

As for Pakatan people who wished an alliance with BN for a more moderate government, sorry guys, you all said too much bad things about them being corrupted and evil.

Umno in particular will never do that.

That party will change its leaders and try to pick up the pieces, hopefully for the better.

So sorry that the good ones like KJ, Shahril Hamdan and Zafrul were casualties of GE15.

Personally, I don't think Umno is dead but it would never be the same again as the Malays moved more and more towards conservatism.

Friday 18 November 2022

Vote for a government that can handle the coming global recession

We, Malaysians are going to vote tomorrow.

Personally, I'm going to vote for a government, which I think could handle the coming global recession next year.

Malaysia needs a stable and capable government for that.

That's my immediate concern, which is the same reason why I wanted GE15 to be held now instead of next year.

The other stuff can wait.

Whatever it is, we can't afford to have a government which is going to spend the first six months after coming to power blaming others for its own weaknesses and obsessed with inflicting revenge  on political enemies.

Not this time, okay.

If we once again elect such a government, the global recession, triggered by the Covid pandemic and war in Ukraine, is going to consume us all.

Just look at the news and we can see that it's already happening in US, Europe and elsewhere.

People in London are already cutting down on their meals, for God's sake.

This time we need leaders who can really work and have the idea on how to buffer us from the coming troubles.

Not leaders who can only talk.

And we must vote for these leaders decisively. 

We definitely can't afford to have a government hanging by a thread with small majority in parliament.

If you think Anwar and Rafizi with their fiery speeches and promises can handle the coming global recession, then go ahead and vote for Pakatan.

If you think Muhyiddin and Hadi with their prayers can do it, then go ahead and vote for Perikatan.

If you think Ismail Sabri and KJ (ya, I think KJ will become DPM) with their track record of taking the country out of the Covid pandemic could do it, then vote for BN. Personally, I want Mat Hasan as PM but he's not BN's choice for the job.

Well, if you are a Pakatan supporter, you must help to make this comment from my last posting become a reality;

Anonymous18 November 2022 at 08:42

I know you dejected and resign to the fact that the 4R ( Rasuah , Race , Religion, Royalty ) politics is now a sunset industry . The independence and the generations before XY are getting older and older and dying but not regenerating , and the Generations XY ( 18-39) are growing as more and turn 18 . It’s all about increase and not decrease in core support . The Generation XY have moved beyond 4R politics . Umno needs to reinvent itself if it needs to be relevant in the age of Generations XY .

Like they say , better burn the house and rebuild the house in the way you want.

This elections GE15 is for PH to lose

PH GE15 parliamentary seats forecast

Perlis 2
Kedah 7
Penang 13
Perak 20
Selangor 22
KL WP and Sepang WP - 12
Negeri Sembilan 6
Melaka 4
Johor 20
Pahang 9
Terengganu 3
Kelantan 4

Semanjung 132

PH will win another 16 seats in Sabah- Sarawak combined

Total 148 and a 2/3 majority . You can fact check this tomorrow when results are announced

Wow! Pakatan is going to get a two third majority in parliament? 

Fantastic forecast indeed. A bit like when some Umno people said they are going to get two-third in 2018.

Errr....I somehow doubt that Pakatan is going to get 20 of the 26 parliamentary seats in Johor as that seems a bit too optimistic considering they lost badly there in the state election just in March.

Never mind.

My own forecasts are in these previous posts;

I'm sticking with those.

Okay, selamat mengundi everyone.

Pakatan wins the flags and billboards war

The GE15 campaign is entering its final leg and I have to say that Pakatan appeared to have won the flags and billboards war as well as outperforming BN in term of its volume of social media contents.

BN's campaign appeared to be very low key compared to even Perikatan's.

I'm now somewhere in Kuantan and saw many more Pakatan and Perikatan flags and billboards compared to those of BN.

TikTok is also full of contents by Rafizi and gang.

I even got a WhatsApp massage from Perikatan's Saifuddin Abdullah asking me to vote for him.

Don't know how the guy got my phone number.

Yup, I'm voting for Indera Mahkota MP and Beserah assemblyman in this election.

Really, the BN's campaign here is quite subdued compared to those put up by Pakatan and Perikatan.

It made me believe that BN really doesn't have much money for GE15 after losing the last general election.

I guess most of the rich guys are now funding Pakatan.

Those huge billboards by the highways are not cheap to put up, okay.

There was even a story that Anwar could afford to fly around in a helicopter to campaign.

Nonetheless, whether the flags, billboards and social media contents could translate into votes would be something we could only wait and see.

After all, BN had many flags, billboards and social media contents too in the last general election but it ended up losing quite badly.

I guess BN now has to resort to its old method of door to door campaigning to send its message.

Makcik-makcik going around asking their neighbours to vote for the coalition that had done so much for them and their communities.

Well, that's not so bad.

I don't think those makcik-makcik ever ask for money or contracts from Umno to campaign for BN.

A bit like me, I guess.

Anwar likely to win in Tambun

A Pakatan-supporting friend asked me yesterday whether Anwar Ibrahim will become the prime minister after GE15.

The guy knew that I'm very BN-friendly for this election, so I assumed that he was just asking me that in jest.

Still, I don't want to risk hurting my friend's feeling, so I said it's 50:50.

I can be quite diplomatic, you see.

I told him that whatever it is Anwar needs to win in Tambun first.

Honestly, I'm quite puzzled on why he chose to contest there as it's definitely not a safe seat for him.

Voters in Tambun are roughly 70 per cent Malays, 18 per cent Chinese, 10 per cent Indians and slightly over two per cent of other ethnicities.

Incumbent Ahmad Faizal Azumu, who is now Pribumi Bersatu number two won the seat as a Pakatan candidate in 2018 with a 5,320 majority votes or just about five per cent of the over 100,000 voters.

Yup, it was not even a safe seat for a Pakatan candidate back during the height of public anger towards BN.

Despite my dislike of Anwar, I have to say that the guy was quite brave to contest in Tambun.

A bit like Khairy going to Sungai Buloh, except that Anwar decided for himself to go there while the handsome young man was sent to where he is contesting now by his Umno bosses.

I believe Anwar did it because he wanted to prove that Pakatan still have the support of many Malays despite the DAP factor.

Well, I actually think he may pull it off too.

Firstly, from what I heard the fight in Tambun has become a two-way fight between Anwar and Faizal Azumu.

The BN guy and other candidates seemed to have melted into the background.

I even heard that BN wanted to just put up a token resistance there because it doesn't want the Malay votes to be split, and thus giving an advantage to Anwar.

I suspect that if this is true, then many of those who wished to vote for BN would not turn up on polling day instead of voting for the Perikatan's candidate.

And there will be many of those. 

Some, especially hardcore Umno supporters may even rebelled and vote for Pakatan in protest just to teach their party leadership a lesson for abandoning them in Tambun. That's what happened in 2018.

Anwar, on the other hand is almost certain to get the bulk of the about 28 per cent non-Malay votes and hardcore Pakatan supporters among the Malays.

So, Anwar already has more than 30 per cent of the votes in his bag.

He may get the rest of the needed votes from  the fence-sitters among the Malay voters, especially the young ones who are voters for the first time.

These neutral Malays may not like Faizal Azumu too because of Pribumi Bersatu's track record of switching sides, which made the party untrustworthy.

Anyway, what could they possibly gain by voting the guy who was deposed as Perak menteri besar, when they can get themselves a possible prime minister as their elected representative in parliament.

As much as I don't like Pakatan, I believe its chances of winning GE15 is way much better than Perikatan, okay.

BN is the likely winner of GE15, as I said in my previous posts, but the coalition seemed to have given up in Tambun.

Honestly, as I'm writing this, I can't even remember the name of the BN candidate.

That's how low-key is the BN campaign in Tambun.

Considering all that, I dare say we will see Anwar in parliament again after GE15.
