The jailing of Najib has apparently bolster Pakatan's enthusiasm to win GE15.
Their supporters were all gung ho in the social media, believing that Malaysians are with them again now that Najib had been adjudged guilty by the courts.
News portals aligned with them (almost all, actually) are now busy trumpeting Najib's jailing as a triumph for democracy and revival of Pakatan's chances in GE15.
Last night, Pakatan said they were once again united to use a common logo for GE15.
In the Johor election, which Pakatan didn't do very well, PKR had used its own logo.
Looking at their enthusiasm now, I don't think Pakatan would complain much if GE15 is to be held tomorrow.
They can once again accuse Umno of being corrupt to the core and Malaysians will once again vote them to power like in 2018.
They have always believe that Najib was the main reason why their first stint as government had failed.
Definitely not because they fucked up the whole thing themselves.
Nope, it's Najib's fault, period.
Well, good for them for thinking that way.
Even Dr Mahathir has hinted of the possibility of joining forces with them again like in 2018.
Not such a bad idea, I thought.
I'm hoping Muhyiddin and his Pribumi Bersatu team to do the same.
Pas want to join them also, I don't mind.
Pakatan Harapan 3.0. Nice.
We all can enjoy the drama of Dr Mahathir shaking hands with Anwar, Azmin hugging Anwar, Hadi hugging Kit Siang etc.
Everyone against the evil and corrupt BN/Umno. Everyone saving Malaysia.
Yup, I really wish that could happen.
However, I noticed that Pas and Pribumi Bersatu have been relatively quiet when Najib was sent to jail.
They were not as enthusiastic about the "victory" compared to DAP and PKR.
Amanah was also relatively subdued.
I do wonder why.
Maybe leaders of those Malay-based parties know what the common Melayu people were actually thinking when they saw what transpired in the court and Najib being sent to jail.
Maybe they realised that many of the Melayu, people whose votes they depend on didn't seem very convinced of Najib's guilt.
Najib guilty "beyond reasonable doubt"?
Maybe those Melayu rather than being angry with Najib, actually sympathise with him.
Pas, Pribumi Bersatu and Amanah would be screwed if that's the case.
Just like Umno being screwed in 1999 when the majority of Malays didn't believe it when Dr Mahathir said Anwar sodomised men and abused his power, even after the courts said that he did so. Lucky for Umno and its BN allies that the Chinese saved them that year.
As someone said to me this morning, "Orang Melayu ni senang sangat simpati. Tahun 2018 dulu simpati kat Dr Mahathir, tu yang dia orang bagi undi kat DAP".
Well, never mind all that.
Pakatan people should really just push for GE15 now.
Yup, the time is ripe to grab Putrajaya once again.
After all, they have the Melayu Bangsar type to support them what. They don't really need the support of Melayu kampung who got Brim and such from the corrupt Najib.
