These days, if you have eaten something wrong and wanted to vomit it out, there is no method as effective as reading what our so-called leaders say.
One Moron Personified wanted the Bersih Lady to be hanged. This is for asking for a fair and clean election. One wonders whether he knows that this is not an autocracy , but a democracy, at least if we go by the Constitution.
In the first place, a clean and fair election is a prerequisite of a truly free and democratic country. The ones that should be hauled up and jailed (i would not go the extent of asking them to be hanged) are those past and present ‘leaders’ who have manipulated and abuse their power to create the present anomalies in the voting system.
While one constituency may have 100,00 voters, another whose demography favours the incumbents may have 6,00 voters only. This is just one aspect, and if you read the online media and blogs, you will know how much anomalies are there in the electoral rolls. Then we have the massive increase in the number of voters in the State below the Winds, which has actually changed the whole political landscape of that state.
To manipulate this system and destroy the spirits of demcocracy enshrined in the Constitution is a crime against the country and its people, so these are the people who have actually committed ‘treason’ instead of those trying to right the wrong and asking for a fairer system.
Then we have the Old Horse telling people that the next election is about race, that the country has become more racist. It is exactly because of people like him and what he has uttered that has fanned racism. Like the arsonist who sets fire to a place and then shout ‘fire, fire’, the Old Horse is actually the person who is the main culprit who had singlehandedly caused the polarisation that we have seen today. From the 60s when he was an ultra, to the abolition of english schools, to the implementatiton of the NEP, to the corruption of many government institutions, he has done so much to destroy the foundation that was laid by the first PM. He was the main implementor of the NEP, which he has hijacked and skewed in such a way that has made our society into what you see today– corruption, lack of competitiveness, loss of excellence in almost all fields and a culture of warlordism..
