Post Farcical MB Saga: Whither Now Pakatan, The Law And The Constitution?

All the attention is now on Azmin, but it is the people who feel that they, the law and the constitution are the losers.

The fact that Kak Wan was not even granted an audience to show that she had the majority support, including that from the man eventually chosen as the MB, will always play on people's minds no matter what is said.

The repercussions of PKR' eventual capitulation to the palace's choice remain to be seen. But it wouldn't be far-fetched to postulate that PKR's capitulation will cost the party dearly in terms of the voters' confidence in their leaders to stand by their own convictions, let alone by the voters' hope.

Pas' reputation, if any is left, is not only in tatters but really not worth two cents. In the long, tiring and farcical run up to to the  denouncement  denouement, Pas had behaved more like an enemy out to destroy their partners - more like a rabid dog, if truth be told, with their president's blast from hell even blaming pimps and brokers, everything and everybody else, except their own perfidy.

Pas has shown not only that it utterly cannot be relied on as a partner, but that it is only interested in advancing its Islamic agenda to the exclusion of anyone else's opinion or stand, including those even of their so-called 'Erdogan' or more progressive faction's.

Pas can forget about Chinese votes.

DAP's fate isn't bright either, if Pas continues to be part of the tripartite coalition.

DAP is bound to lose a substantial number of their own voters (including yours truly) who will feel uncomfortable with Pas around.

All in all, the road to Putrajaya for Pakatan as a tripartite coalition is closed, because voters can't trust, and won't stand by, their leaders who themselves can't be trusted to stand by their own convictions.

The only winners are those who want to see a viable political alternative to dUMNo's long hegemony eliminated, and those who stand to benefit by it.

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...
