The dUMNo circus duly came and went.
The acts were all hackneyed, stale, rehashed and as old as the hills behind the Putrajaya woods.
Chasing shadows and flogging imaginary ghosts and goblins have become the standard pathetic acts dUMNo has been reduced to.
None of the acts ditched out at their just concluded gathering would inspire anyone because all that that could be imagined or conjured to take your breath away has been used up to the nth degree.
Even their ring master had to backtrack on his promise to the rakyat just so that he would not sound out of place with the rest of the panting, pandering protagonists.
And their supposedly bright, young spark and gem (from whom much was expected), could not help but sound much like the rest of the brilliant cast.
Once they could hold their heads high, today dUMNo could only hope that by rehashing the same old scary tales, their target audience would remain suitably contained and remain die hard supporters.
Only, flogging the same old imaginary horses to get attention, gets tiring even to their most ardent of supporters. Who wants to see the same old imaginary ghosts and goblins conjured up and paraded before your eyes every time?
At least put some colours and variety to the tales.
Demonising the Chinese and purveying themselves as protectors of race, religion and monarchy in a multi racial nation after all these years as the ruling kingpins, just tell others that dUMNo has failed the nation.
Nothing was said about how to tackle the rising cost of living, fight against corruption or how to combat the deteriorating racial and religious situation, the last brought about by people who hope to gain from churning the waters.
Certainly no one was talking about the economy.
No wonder only 47% had voted for the ruling coalition in the last GE.
That means an even smaller percentage had voted for dUMNo.
