Ok back. Lets see now…
Ahh, the fever is in the air. Not the RNA viruses that purges flu but equally irritating nonetheless, the General Election (GE). Again, not wanting to be left out of the whole circus, I think I should do a political write-up leading up to the big-day. This is the General Election after all, the Cirque De Soleil of all freak shows.
I’m a fence-sitter, or a neutral. Or better still, a lalang or whatever shit you wanna call it. The thing is, I don’t vote and I wont be casting my vote for this coming poll. I’ve had people come up giving the lectures on the usual one-vote-counts and all the boring stuff. I promised him to give serious consideration about getting my name registered. This happened 4 years ago and today I am still very much the same unconcerned citizen.
I used to be pro-government mainly because of our former Prime Minister Dr M. My admiration for him was nothing political so maybe that was the reason I couldn’t see why the opposition gave him such tough times while leading the country.
Neither was I an Op-hater. The late Ustaz Fadhil Noor and Ezam Md Nor were two notable names that I admired, the former for his leadership and the latter for what I cant quite recall. Maybe for being a loyalist, I don’t know. But he did stick around till last year or something.
Politics can produce fanatics amongst their supporters, just like football but unlike the beautiful game, party supporters can easily switch camps when their leader(s) decides to jump over the fence. Over the years I’ve never really heard of, say a Gooner turns a Kop because his former team sucks. In politics however, they DO!
My point here is, I can be on both sides and layan in politics. Which comes to my next point, I cannot be claiming myself apolitical any longer. Only that I’m not quite sure which party I am more inclined to. The Keris, maybe, for Datuk Mukhriz obviously. Bulan too, for a few ustaz who has helped me spiritually, and the Bintang fellas.
I guess in politics everything goes. Maybe come the next GE, I imagine to be a hard party worker, wearing all white with a skull cap, lobbying for Muhkriz.
Before I end this entry, I was just thinking earlier. If PAS were to penetrate Sabah, they may have to re-brand their party name to, PAS-OK, or Pasok.
Maybe…just maybe, I’d do a series of attack on the GE itself, you know, the general stuff. Anything that I may find it stupid enough to be in the book,
Like yesterday right,…being the nomination day and shit, some seats were won uncontested. How could this happen when the uncontested losers knew very well they need to be fully prepared. And yet they screwed up at the dot. Selling his soul to the opponent’s party sounds like an interesting theory because this type of stupidity doesn’t make sense at all.
