The Selangor MB debacle is getting beyond farcical.
What should have been a simple matter of appointing an MB has become a protracted struggle involving apologies and references to remote control.
In the midst of all this most uncomfortable and untenable situation, the constitution and the law have become a dim memory. One that everybody seems to be forgetting. Or ignoring.
Except for the few who do speak up fearlessly in their defence, some at their own personal expense of being hauled up for allegedly committing sedition.
The whole episode started with the inexplicable obstinacy of one man who strove to cling on to the post at all costs.
And others whose idea of being a good coalition player is to stab their partners.
Add (natural?) greed for power and position and manna and an almost pathological fear and prejudice of the fairer sex becoming a leader, and we have a portent brew that threatens to unravel any semblance of a return to reason and prudence.
And an (early) end to the fiasco.
Top it off, with powerful vested interests competing for spoils, Selangor folks are truly being played out and shortchanged.
