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.
