Congratulations to BN. A handsome, landslide victory
I was at the ceramah at DAP Ops centre as it has the best parking facility and there was beer serving outlets on both side of it. DAP and beer has an intimate relationship it seems.
Perhaps as an omen for things to come, my camera cocked up. I notice this blog has received some attention of cybertroopers. I am flattered. Let's join me in bashing that useless piece of waste of money.
It was a good turn out. The speakers delivered their messages well enough and Anwar was outstanding. The thousands who came mostly remained glued to their seats, impressed and responsive but I do notice some conservative and unmoving individuals as well amongst the crowd.
On 1 hand, maybe they are beyond redemption, enjoy the declining standard of living while subscribing to communal politics dulu, kini dan selama-lamanya as well as being grateful to BN (there was a lovely banner saying "terimakasih kepada Muhyddin kerana meluluskan 2 sekolah untuk kami" or words to that effect, err...ain't that what he is paid to do).
On the other and, since this DUN seat makes no difference in the control of state government, lets
1) continue to get the development allocation
2) put ISA on M Hassan, sit back and enjoy the spectacle
3) give Jibby the confidence to call for the Perak state-wide election. I suppose PR will be happy be remain status quo by trading Bagan Pinang for Perak. What was yours remain yours; what was ours we like it back big time, please.
UMNO is still a formidable force. In the last GE, MIC and MCA lost. UMNO won and won very well. Perhaps it is conceivable than UMNO might want to conside going alone in Peninsular and keep the seats for itself rather than giving them to MIC and MCA who carry greater risk of defeat.
Lest I am called a bad sport, I hereby sincerely congratulate UMNO for the landslide victory in a difficult period with the issues bugging MCA and MIC. The SPR, solders, police and energetic BN youths all played their role to reasonable expectation and perhaps beyond that.
Well done BN & friends.
