Opposition parties end-goal? Reform, or power?

April 26, 2016


In the run-up to the 13th GE, ground intelligence reports suggested that, subject to one important condition, opposition could win 12-14 of the 25 parliamentary seats in Sabah. That one all-important condition? Straight contests in all the constituencies. Government servants, uniformed personnel and small time businessmen dependent on small government contracts had to see and […]

ABU, anyone?

Yes, yes, it still means the same. Anything But UMNO. Asalkan Bukan UMNO. Getting rid of robbers and thieves now residing in Putrajaya. Methods have necessarily changed, though. Yes? No? I would like to hear from you
