A Long-Running Political Soap Opera In Perak

The debacle yesterday in the state assembly of Perak made us look more and more like the legislative sittings in Taiwan.

The riot-like assembly sitting on May 7 would go into our history.

It is embarrassing that our esteemed and revered leaders of the country can behave in this way...Mat Rempit? Mat XXXX?

No doubt many people have seen hawkers fight until they drop into the drain. I have seen school girls pull their skirts down to show their unmentionables....and I have seen housewives tear each other's hair...now some people want to remove a Speaker chair robe and all....

Julius Caesar? Could Shakespeare have penned it in 1564?

All these happen because of the build up of all the dissatisfaction throughout the years. From pushing and pulling, soon it will be all out blows and punches. How can it be that one party is always right all the time ? All the time, it wins. All the time, it claims to be right. If people do not stand up for what they think it is right, they will forever be made fools. In Sarawak, we still can buy time with money and with other materials. One day also, Sarawakians will say it is enough. It is just a matter of time when a new breed of Sarawakians with a different way of thinking and a different way of doing things will arise. They will no longer follow their parents' footsteps. The days of buying peoples' hearts will be over, sooner or later.
