Rainy days and Sundays......
I am sure we all know about Padang Serai MP, N. Gobalakrishnan's weeks-old decision to quit the PKR, right? Now, read this Sunday Star story about that YB's decision to quit......
"After weeks of speculation, PKR's Padang Serai MP. N. Gobalakrishnan has resigned from the party."
The MP announced his decision yesterday. A day before the Tenang by-election. Remember the Sunday Star story said that the decision came "after weeks of speculation" which came as a result of his announcement of what he was going to do. But Gobalakrishnan chose the day before the by-election to make the decision final and official. Now doesn't this raise some questions as to why he chose to make the official announcement one day before the Tenang polls?
1. Could he have been busy with other matters?
2. Was he still thinking about it until yesterday?
3. Was he 'turned' and made to see the light?
4. Was he made an offer he could not refuse?
It's a rainy Sunday. Frogs love rain don't they? This comment has nothing to do with the above post.
The Very-Bad-Choice-of-Name Award on this Sunday goes to Hishammuddin Hussein, the Home Minister for announcing that The Immigration Department will be the lead agency in the international crime training academy in Langkawi. (Didn't even know there was such an academy). An international CRIME training academy??? Wow! I can just picture the characters in the queue at the doors of that academy!
Of course, the YB was just announcing an academy dedicated to COMBATING crime. But the name is kinda misleading isn't it? Maybe my Engrand not up to the mark lah. Sorry ah.
Last year we read about and saw the gallant efforts of several groups of concerned young Malaysians who'd gotten together to organise campaigns to register Malaysian voters all over the country. Most of these groups were young Malaysians doing their patriotic duty contributing to the country's progress. I do not know how many voters they managed to register on their trail through shopping malls, sidewalks and mamak stalls but I salute their efforts. So I wonder what they will say or how they will react to the news that the Election Commissioner's claim that young Malaysians make up the bulk of unregistered voters. The Tan Sri says that this was because our young flers have "an attitude of indifference, of political apathy." So now how my young Malaysian friends?
All good wishes to the good folks in Tenang. Happy voting. Stay safe. Vote well.
