Malaysians go for change

If there is violence we will not run away

"So we urge for calm because there are all sorts of slanders going on - stock up lah , there will rusuhan (riots) lah, Tanda Putera (movie of the May 13, 1969 racial riots), what have you! But the people are not scared. Let me tell you a personal story about a former neighbor, a lady lawyer. Last time we talked about it, she would be very scared but this time I met her, 'if there is violence, so be it'. I was surprised, shocked because they are very very rich but she said, 'No we are not running away."

Najib's sex videos unlikely to sway the voters

Najib's sex videos production farms are working against him

The use of sex videos among other ill-thoughtout strategies to win over the rakyat are beginning to backfire over Najib and BN.

Three decisions on the part of BN in the last two weeks are leading to tectonic shifts within the electorate, and thus strengthen the opposition’s position nationally.

These are:

1. The use of sex videos against PAS and possibly other opposition politicians.

2. The fielding of Perkasa leader Zulkifli Noordin in Shah Alam.

3. The action by the Registrar of Societies (ROS) in not recognising DAP’s central executive committee (CEC). 

The combined effect of these moves have strengthened the opposition coalition and negatively impact the BN’s position with the electorate in the lead up to the May 5 general election.

MCA the first casualty even before nomination day

Najib dumps Chua Soi Lek but retains Taib

It may not suprise anybody but CSL himself as the MCA's president is unceremoniously dumped ahead of the coming general election in Malaysia. Unlike Sarawak's CM Taib who can easily scratch Najib's back for him CSL is now left wondering what else has he not done for Najib and looks like he is sill clueless. As usual MCA is again sidelined by UMNO and loses more seats to UMNO even before the action starts.

MCA's knows all is lost as President is not even contesting
