Idea of one largest single party (DAP) calling the shots
Dapsters have been arguing that the DAP political side should rule Sabah because Shafie Apdal leads the state’s biggest single party.
In the Sabah 2020 election, Shafie’s party Warisan won 23 seats. With its partners’ – DAP (6), PKR (2), Upko (1) – contribution of nine seats, Warisan-Plus has a total of 32 seats. Continue reading “Idea of one largest single party (DAP) calling the shots”
MCA sudah boleh gulung tikar
Chinese support for DAP remains rock solid.
No amount of postmortem by MCA can help the party resuscitate a lifeless corpse. The angry Chinese mood against BN is implacable.
MCA should allow the Chinese to deservingly get the government they voted for. Because elections have consequences. Continue reading “MCA sudah boleh gulung tikar”
More Chinese cabinet ministers under BN than during Harapan interregnum
Compare the cabinet line-up under two rival administrations — the first one recently when Chinese voters gave their 95 percent support to Harapan, with the second one previously when the Chinese extended less than 50 percent electoral support to BN.
Under Mahathir as prime minister 2.0, there were five Chinese ministers and eight Chinese deputy ministers. Under Abdullah Badawi in 2004, there were six Chinese ministers and twelve Chinese deputy ministers — see full list below.

A tale of two kitties
I really have to apologize to my cats for using them as an analogy for Pakatan and Barisan. The poor darlings are being politically maligned through the comparison.
The photo below is of my pair of cats from the same litter. They’re twins and I find it hard to tell them apart. So I had to colour code them, giving the male a flourescent green collar. His sister wears a flourescent pink collar.

Perkasa, are you for or against Bersih 4.0? ~ Come on, speak up
In my previous post, I asked the following question – Is Bersih 4.0 safe?
The Circle – a group 30 retired chiefs of armed forces – yesterday expressed their disquiet and grave concern about the security situation in our country.
Perkasa has also got retired high-ranking military men in the leadership of the organization. Thus, will these Perkasa leaders and members who had served in the army before please publicly state their stand on Bersih 4.0?
Some two-and-a-half weeks before Bersih 2.0 (9 July 2011), Hannah Yeoh in her June 20th tweet took a dig at Perkasa. Continue reading “Perkasa, are you for or against Bersih 4.0? ~ Come on, speak up”

Harbinger of Malay tsunami in GE14
You can assume the following trend – which I’m going demonstrate – as one lesson that the BN will be taught in GE14.
1. The silent majority are sorely deprived of a platform for our voice. More than 600 out of some one thousand people are saying, ‘No’, the Rohingya should not be allowed to stay in Malaysia.
That’s what the majority (60 percent) of my poll respondents feel. Continue reading “Harbinger of Malay tsunami in GE14”
Tun-PM battle royale will hand Putrajaya over to DAP
With a mere two percent Malay vote swing coupled with five percent Chinese vote swing, Pakatan will snatch 22 Parliament seats from the BN. This will put Pakatan and BN at a dead heat with each side holding 111 seats. See results, http://undi.info/2013p/parlid|-2|2|-5|5|0|0|0|0|0|0|0|0
Add another two percent Christian vote swing and BN will be kicked out of Putrajaya.

Part 2: Najib’s Q & A only giving more ammo to Tun
In The J-Star front page caption box today, Si Gunting Dalam Lipatan quoted Najib Razak as saying:
“1MDB’s assets are larger than its liabilities. So in very simplistic terms, if 1MDB were to be wound down tomorrow, the company would still have some assets and and money left even after paying off its debts.”
Such a clueless and callous statement from the PM! Continue reading “Part 2: Najib’s Q & A only giving more ammo to Tun”

Tun vs Najib – the gloves are off
Last year, there was his outburst against blogger “bangang”. Today, Najib hit out at “jemuan” in the Umno body politic.
He blames “jemuan-jemuan” for causing disharmony in Umno, according to a Bernama report.
Accusing them of pitting Umno people against each other, the party president said it is due to the incitement by these jemuan-jemuan that “so much of our shortcomings are amplified”. Continue reading “Tun vs Najib – the gloves are off”

The Economist: Ex-premier “itching for Mr Najib to step down”
The Economist, an influential international business magazine in its latest report ‘Gathering steam‘ said, “Problems at a state investment fund are bad news for Malaysia’s prime minister” referring to 1MDB.
The London-based magazine also said:
“Mr Najib is probably more worried about criticism from within his own party, the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO). The fund has long attracted sniping from factions loyal to Mahathir Mohamad, a meddling former prime minister who is itching for Mr Najib to step down.” Continue reading “The Economist: Ex-premier “itching for Mr Najib to step down””
Important agenda for Umno divisions meeting this Sunday @mpkotabelud
Isn’t it wonderful when the passage of time – a mere two years down the road – proves you to have been absolutely correct?
~ ~ I told you so ~~
On 17 May 2013, I had blogged that Najib Razak’s exclamation of “Chinese tsunami” was factually correct and it was indeed true that Chinese voters had ditched the BN wholesale in the election which was held a week-plus earlier (May 5).
And I provided the data to support my finding.
Well, guess what?
In terms of Chinese sentiment – i.e. how the Chinese feel about the country and the government, the Merdeka Center public opinion survey results for the first quarter of 2015 are now a perfect match with the 2013 election mood.

Tick, tock, tick, tock … Najib’s days are numbered
There’s now the Jho Low controversy swirling feverishly around Najib Razak and triggered by no less than a lengthy report published in one of the world’s most famous newspapers – The New York Times.
Then there is also the Sarawak Report special investigation exposé which was reputedly put together with yet another newspaper of international renown – London’s Sunday Times.
All this makes you ponder just what kind of people – the Jho Low type, I reckon – it is that our PM is surrounded by. Continue reading “Tick, tock, tick, tock … Najib’s days are numbered”

How many handbags does she need?
In my posting yesterday, I asked what do Rosmah and Dodgy Podgy have in common besides their mutual love for branded handbags?
Answer: Their height and weight.
60 Zunar T-shirts for the cost of Rosmah’s designer hairdo
I have a copy of Zunar’s earlier book Cartoon-O-Phobia featuring Rosmah Mansor on the cover as well as the T-shirt.
For the price of Rosmah’s hairstyling – which is reportedly RM1,200 per pop – I can buy 60 more Zunar T-shirts (RM20 each). Continue reading “60 Zunar T-shirts for the cost of Rosmah’s designer hairdo”

Anwar verdict splitting Malaysia in two
Irma, a reader of this blog, commented @ 2015/02/10 at 8:23 pm,
“If you read the trending tweets, about 80 per cent supporting Anwar and kutuk-ing govt seem to be non-Malays. Very seditious and racist comments, too. Also contempt of court. Let’s see if authorities act against them.”
This happens not only in Twitterverse but elsewhere too – in the social media (Facebook) and in blogosphere.
