Where do you think you are in this 3-ring circus?
It would appear that a lot of people with a lot of money to spend fervently believe that giving free dinners and having shows featuring international acts will swing votes to the party they support.
Allan Tam, George Lam and Leon Lai are going to be performing at a concert in Penang tomorrow night. Apparently, to get tickets you only have to fill up a form and make a minimum donation of RM1.00!!! And the objective of the concert? To raise RM5million for charities in Penang!!! I am not a business whiz by any stretch of the imagination but there seems to be something wrong with the arithmetics la.
Also happening tomorrow in Klang is a massive dinner function which hopes to draw 55,000 diners (which will gain it entry into the dubious Malaysian Book Of Records.) The dinner is being organised by a group of BN-friendly Selangor businessmen who call themselves “United Chinese Association of Selangor”. Hong Kong stars are also performing at the event which is being titled “The Prime Minister has a date with you”. According to reports the prime minister's date for the dinner is none other than Michelle Yeoh!!! Oh sorry, Dato Michelle Yeoh.
But at least the flers organising this mega-dinner did not hide behind the cloak of charity and have the honesty to admit that they are doing it in support of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and BN’s bid to win back Selangor.
If this is what happens when we have general elections I honestly believe that if P.T. Barnum was alive and living in Malaysia he'd be Prime Minister.
