Najib, Election And Fence-Sitters

As Parliament's automatic dissolution hurtles fast upon us (April 28), Pm Najib seems to disappear from the radar - election radar i.e

Otherwise, Najib is as busy as ever pushing his personal popularity stake, taking a very public lunch with his family at The Curve the other day.

Najib has allowed the Negri Sembilan state assembly to dissolve itself automatically and it looks very likely that he will also await Parliament's automatic dissolution.

That will be the first time ever that a Malaysian Pm has allowed it to happen. It just reflects on Najib's lack of mojo.

Now with the man whom many Malaysians see as the de facto Pm warning Najib that he would be replaced if Barisan fail to win big in the coming general election, Najib really looks a pathetic lonesome dove.

Perhaps the only thing left for pink lips is the Streets of Laredo.

Nevertheless, his motley bunch of  half-hearted lieutenants are trying their last feeble best to cheer up the indecisive boss.

They claim that 40% of the 3.7 million new voters are actually fence-sitters and so there is hope.

All they need to do is lure these good for nothing fellows who prefer the fence to the sofa, to come off their silly perch and embrace the status quo.

My, firstly to claim that 40% of the new Malaysian voters are actually fence-sitters is an insult to their intelligence.

It implies that they are largely are not keeping up with current events or are stupid enough not to comprehend what maintaining the status quo means to their and the country's future.

The opposition has a more realistic estimate of  the undecided new voters at 15-20%.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
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...
