With last weeks political tsunami, the winning of several states to the opposition parties (or are they not the opp, anymore?), The People were excited. We should be. I know I am, surprisingly. For I hardly take notice of the political happenings in Malaysia unless it’s controversial. For example, the ‘Batu Gajah MP leaking’ incident, the CSMU debate and the dush dush idiocy. [Parliment is a joke.Sometimes I wonder how these people get to where they are.The shouting, the screaming.] The People are expecting a change, a difference.
We are also hearing (or should I say, reading ) more and more of these representatives saying ‘give us time to clean up 50 years of mess’ and all that mumbo jumbo. Time, the people will give but just how much time do you need to familiriase yourself with the political scene. 6 months? A year? The whole term? Specify. [NB : Ini bukan nada perli. Do I have to explain myself all the time?] Specify what you can quickly provide. Trust me, even a weeny-meenny change can make people rejoice. While it’s good to get people off your back for a few months in order for you to get on the bigger agenda, do not be complacent for the seat can get too hot for you to sit on.
For just like newly qualified doctors, you dont have that much time. The expectation is damn high for you to perform , perform and perform.
*Jangan plak lepas nih ada org cakap ‘ bising.. ko je lah masuk politik’. Memang dasar nak kena siat lah camtuh. hello.. do you have to undergo labor itslef to understand the pain?*
It’s always nice to see someone new elected. It’s always exciting to vote for a new ideas. People like rebels. People like underdogs. People like the idea of The Oppressed and The Discriminated achieve something. Why do you think people like watching Oprah Winfrey shows? Cause it’s all about fighting for something, doing something good for yourself. The stories of Triumph. And most often, change likes to happen under a new umbrella. Even if there’s a good, clean candidate in the BN party.. do people care? No, instead they’ll say ‘He’s nice, but he’s in the wrong party’.
Foreign media says that our election campaigns are personal attacks. Sangat benar. And I don’t particularly like that. To set up a website and write anti-remarks are still alright, but to ‘mengaibkan seseorang dgn mentayangkan agenda bersenggama yg peribadi (walaupun itu mungkin bukan individu berkenaan)’ is to me too much. It’s just too bad that these people are politicians and their lives open like a book to pry into. That’s not fair. Might as well ‘buka pekung di dada’ that dashing young accountant who gets blow-jobs now and then from Kak Nyahs in a particular alley sekali! And dont put the blame on Islam Hadhari everytime. Sikit2 Islam hadhari. Sikit2 Islam Hadhari. When the ustaz come to the UK and wants to explain what it is, tak ramai pulak yang berani nak dtg dan dengar dulu. Yours Truly included but I was unable to attend not because I was determined to reject any idea proposed by the BN, it was more because I had more pressing commitments to make. 😛 That controversial concept was recently introduced while sahsiah individu takes ones lifetime to develop to where they are.
Parties dont compete in manifestos. The public are part to blame for because this country is driven by a celebrity-culture… they tend to look at politics the same way. KJ is a hooligan, Najib is scandalous etc. If thats the game you want to play, fine then.. what say you of Mukhriz? I agree he’s an eye-candy. Ahaks.
It is interesting to see new faces getting hold of the country’s future under the opposition wing. But do you know what will be more interesting?
To see in a few years time (or maybe, many) Who will turn BN around and clear its image from corruption and what-not. To see Who the new, young faces of BN will be and seize power from PKR, PAS, DAP. To see Who will match Nurul Izzah’s charm and Nik Aziz’s demure yet calibre stance.
It should be a healthy rivalry then.
“Aku BN kerana Perpaduan, Aku DAP kerana Kuching :P, Aku PAS kerana Islam, Aku PKR kerana Perjuangan”
