What Do You Think of MPs who Cross-Over?

That is the question for MALAYSIAWATCHPOLL 35 since malaysiakini has reported that AI is in East Malaysia trying to get some of them to cross over to BR?

Please take a minute and share your ideas. Comments are most appreciated.

To say that all politicians are crooked is too simplistic and downright insulting to those who genuinely enter politics out of the desire to contribute to the betterment of the country and its people. I believe these committed politicians exist on both sides of the current political divide (BN/BR) and I dont for one minute believe they are the monopoly of only the BR. As such I foresee that there are those from the BN in East Malaysia as well as in Peninsular Malaysia who subscibes to the ideals of the "People's Declaration" and have in fact been frustrated by the continuing rape of the country, which I believe is largely engineered and monopolised by a certain select group in power. Hence is there any harm in giving these concerned individuals a chance to serve their country ? Or are we so blinkered by our own hatred that we just could not accept this possibility - by making the simplistic judgement that all those who join the BN did so only for the sole purpose of accumulating wealth at the expanse of the rakyat. Pleas people, think hard on this.

thanks for your comments.
I did not use the word "all" and was hoping that a forced selection will evoke some comments.
I am sure people are willing to give them a chance.

Maybe if they declare their assets, that would also be good?
