There are a lot of big news taking up prime space of most Malaysians’ consciousness these days.
There is the Gaza obscenity that has the entire world in an uproar, but with an emasculated United Nations, pretty much nothing could be done, apart from our innefectual calls for American product boycott and marches
Back home there is this Kuala Terengganu by-election that DPM Najib is at pains to tell us, doesn’t indicate the support BN enjoys in the country. He’s worried, that much we can see.
Worried enough to use their champion shit-stirrer Ezam, late of PKR, to start a smear campaign against Anwar. Hey man, it takes no rocket science to know that Anwar is neither an angel nor Malaysia’s salvation.
But that doesn’t make you smell very nice either. Nobody likes a snitch. Especially a snitch that comes out with dirt only during elections and by-elections.
It’s an insult to the people of Kuala Terengganu. And it ain’t helping the BN candidate either. It seems to me that the BN camp is botching their own efforts willfully. Either that or Najib is intellectually-challenged.
Neither hypothesis bodes well for BN.
The state’s decision to close down the DAP bilik gerakan is just stupid, whichever way you look at it. This, in a town where everybody is saying the Chinese may form the deciding block of voters.
The thousands of cops stationed at Kuala Terengganu now have logistics problems to settle. The city can’t really cope with their presence. I wonder at the strength necessary…and how those boys are housed. Those cops need a roof over their heads too, don’t they?
I always ask this question whenever I come across the SB types and riot cops, and usually am greeted with black looks. I ask the same question of KT-visiting cops now?
“Ada overtime ka?”
