Did Umno/Bn cheat to win the 13th General Election (GE13) ?
Pm Najib practically confirmed this when he told BBC that there was no proof of cheating in GE13.
If you didn't cheat, you just say you didn't. You don't talk about proof.
If you did cheat, then you want to talk about proof because you are afraid of being caught.
Now, that's elementary psychology.
But really, it is all about honour, not about proof.
If you win BECAUSE YOU CHEATED, you can say what you want but that does not change the truth one bit merely because others can't show proof that you had cheated.
They say there is honour even among thieves.
For politicians, honour is the Unicorn.
In their defence though, it must be admitted that politics does have a claim to honour - the honour of being the oldest profession in the world.
So, at least, we must not begrudge the politikus (political rats) this pre-eminence among the lesser beings.
Even if Umno/Bn did not cheat, what honour is there to constitute the government of the day on a minority vote of 47% to 51% for the opposition?
And on that minority vote of 47%, garnering 60% of the seats in Parliament?
What kind of mathematics is that?
Even the mad will laugh at the lack of our mathematical understanding and erudition.
And then comporting yourselves like legitimacy and democracy are your first and second name respectively.
If democracy means that the voice of the majority must be heard, then ours must be "the world's best democracy" ala Najib at work!
If Umno/Bn knew what is good for them, they should start behaving like they knew their place and ceased behaving like the country belongs to their grandfather.
They should start listening to the voice of the majority who want change and not the corrupt and corroding status quo.
We want a government that is responsive to the needs of the rakyat, not to the insatiable greed and avarice of the connected few, cronies and families.
We want a government that desists in interfering in the business and functions of the civil service and state or public institutions.
We want a government that ceases in its extravagant ways and assumes financial and fiscal prudence and not lead the country down the road to economic perdition by worsening an already burgeoning sovereign debt that, if left unchecked now, is likely to lead the country into bankruptcy in a couple of years.
We want a government that knows how to manage the nation's economy and not act as if it knew when it does not and only knows how to go on a perennial deficit budget.
We want a government that treats every citizen, irrespective of his or her race, equally and not play politics of divide and rule.
That much, if Umno/Bn knew and acted upon, they might just garner some real respect from the people.
Not go telling the world that there is no proof of cheating in GE13.
