Bersih 3.0: Kotor Atau Bersih? (Clean Or Dirty?)

Funny, 250,000 or so Malaysians had turned up on 28 April to demand for electoral reforms.

Suddenly it all became a question of whether Bersih 3.0 was clean (bersih means clean in Malay) or dirty.

Not that Malaysians want electoral reforms.

Not that the 250,000 or so Malaysians who had turned up for the Bersih 3.0 rally, and many others who did not, believed that the Malaysian electoral roll and process are anything but clean.

And all because some smarts alecs in authority had probably set in motion to cause some disturbance so as to justify police action and blame the disturbance on the Bersih 3.0 organisers and participants and therefore to obfuscate and blunt the Bersih 3.0 message to the Najib administration that the people want electoral reforms be put in place to ensure free, fair and clean elections.

Funny, how the authorities hijack the issue and blame the opposition for hijacking Bersih instead.

Now, they say politics is dirty and who is to dispute this? But Malaysian politics is another specie altogether.

It is basically what Umno says it it. So, if Umno says Bersih is not clean it is the gospel truth.

Bersih 3.0 is dirty and so what demands are you justifying? Bersih 3.0 is dirty and ergo there goes the justification calling for electoral reforms.

If you don't like it, tell us why you Bersih fellows turned violent? Why didn't you fellows rally peacefully and we would have had acceded to you.

And there would have not  been any question of clean or dirty.

Of course, the authorities did not fire tear gas and water canons indiscriminately into the Bersih 3.0 crowds, did not chase the rally participants all over the city and did not wallop anybody.

They had been very restrained and considerate. Every thing had been according to SOP.

They even had some LRT stations closed to protect the poor Bersih sods.

Now, tell us who was dirty? Didn't you see the monkey attacking the police vehicle that had lost control?

Is this how you show you are clean by attacking police vehicle? Can you so-called Bersih guys show us any incident of police brutality?

Show us anything as much as the singeing of one hair of any Bersih sods?

And you are telling us telling Bersih 3.0 was clean?

So, get lost!

Berambus!

We have work to do to clean up all the dirt you bersih (clean) sods left behind!

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
