"Defections: Why Pakatan should wait" -- I Support this malaysiakini Article
Cease and desist!
That should be the principle applied to both sides of the political divide if Malaysia is to emerge stronger as a politically matured nation with no one trying to buy out MPs from the other side.
The nation has suffered much from about 25 years of racist politics and another 5 years (at the most) of a perceived weak leader is not going to affect the nation greatly.
If AAB starts to clean up the mess left by TDM and is able to reform the BN before leaving the nation with more democratic and responsible institutions like the IPCMC-reformed Police(that they have agreed to), I am sure both sides of the political divide will benefit.
With a larger Opposition in Parliamet, the Government will have to debate laws and issues more carefully and we will even get to watch some live recording.
So let's say NO to any party-hoppers of whatever colour. Switching allegiance should be considered the ultimate betrayal of the people.
