Ambiga: “I thought silly season was supposed to end with Umno elections. Guess not.” Retweeted by Hannah Yeoh (see screenshot below).
Ambiga’s Twitter avatar is the logo of the Tribunal Rakyat which was convened a couple of months ago in September in Subang Jaya (but where else).
Bersih’s self-appointed ‘Tribunal Rakyat’ reminds us of the “People Council” proposed by the Thai opposition which is demanding that caretaker PM Yingluck Shinawatra immediately resign so that their (the oppo’s) so-called People Council – that nobody elected – can proceed to rule Thailand.
Ambiga and Hannah Yeoh in their tweets mocked the Umno elections as “silly season”.
Well, at least the party held elections and abides by the results unlike Anwar Ibrahim who had wanted to nullify the GE12 results through his September 16 attempted takeover — a manoeuvre that was defended and justified by Hannah Yeoh.
And at least the Umno election, where more than 200,000 delegates voted, was carried out without any hitches unlike the DAP elections where the less than 2,000 delegates took part.

Interim Prime Minister is now fighting against an opposition determined to depose her.
If Yingluck Shinawatra loses her current battle, she could end up in exile.
As quirky as Yingluck’s fashion sense appears to be, she still manages to carry off her bizarre outfits with panache. Hannah Yeoh, on the other hand …
Blast from the past
When the Bersih participants were out on the streets, Hannah Yeoh was sheltering in a hotel room.
Her tweet on ‘428’ (i.e. 28th April, the Chinese just love numbers like 5th May ‘505’-change-government ) says:
“Pic taken fr hotel room where we sought shelter” (Hannah Yeoh tweet screenshot below).
While the DAP leaders remain nicely sheltering in hotel rooms, the PAS Takbir Army roll on the streets.
While the PAS foot soldiers pass around the donation box to collect pennies, the Madam Speaker votes to give herself a fat salary that’s 50 times the minimum wage. That’s Pakatan double standards for you.
And the Pakatoons are still deluding themselves that they’re holy warriors crusading for Freedom and Democracy.
