The MESSAGE from Permatang Pauh is LOUD and CLEAR

Of course a by-elections like PP is strictly not a method to select our Prime Minister.
As Malaysia follows the Westminster style of parliamentary democracy, the party or coalition that commands the most number of seats gets to select the PM.

For Malaya since independence, UMNO has been the overlord of the ruling parties, that somehow it seems automatic that an UMNO leader becomes the PM.

The system created some stability and most Malaysians with their usual tiadapathic attitude accepted the situation. Some years ago, UMNO changed its democratic practices and made changes to its own election rules that make contesting the top posts very difficult and the system of naming one's successor became normal.

Effectively this means that the Prime Minister gets selected by fewer and fewer people and money politics has been reported by many leaders. So far the most they have done is rename the term and call in the ACA who recently asked them to provide evidence for them to check out the problems.

But the message from PP is loud and clear. People are tired of the old ways and dirty politics.
After more than 50 years in power, some leaders will definitely resist being ousted.
malaysiakini has this analysis:
"PKR leader begins uncertain journey to Putrajaya"

The BN will make another grave mistake if they think stopping just Anwar will change history. More Malaysians now share his vision for a better future for all citizens with a fair distribution of the nation's wealth; with a helping hand given to those who need it and being able to practise a religious faith without interference.

Truly Malaysia is a blessed nation but somehow we lowered our guard against complacent and corrupt leadership that is bankrupt of the vision that can make Malaysia great.
As we come to celebrate our 51th year of freedom let us contemplate how we can contribute more to nation-building.

The 50000 or more supporters who attended Anwar's nomination and those who came later to give moral support during the campaign from all over the country will become mutants called Anwaristas spanning all over the country ready to strangle BN in the next GE!

A Sinking “Titanic” (BN) in Malaysia? (The show has just begun!)
(Versi Bahasa Melayu dibawah)

Malaysia’s Titanic (BN) was deemed unsinkable when it was first launched. Even when it hit an iceberg on 8 March 2008, it was so hard to accept that the ship will sink. When all efforts to save the ship from sinking was finally abandoned, the Captain (DSAB) just stood silently awaiting the fate as a forlorn man. He was hoping the Carpentia or some other nearby ships will come in time to save the passengers. It was sad to see the Captain firing off some distress flares to alert the Carpentier, but the Carpentier’s Captain (DSNTR) was just not convinced that the Titanic was in distress.

In between is a love story of Leonardo DiCaprio (DSAI) and Kate Winslet (Azizah). Azizah refused to abandon her love, even though many a times, events show she should just save herself. She held on to hopes, hoping against hope that she and her love can pull thru and both will survive this tragedy. Both suffered mentally and emotionally and in the end, it was Azizah left to tell the tale of a great man who sacrificed himself to save her.

As for the crew of the Titanic (Little Napoleons) and their friends who are rich and powerful corporate figures, who helped run the ship, did you see the desperation when they found out that the ship is really sinking. Most of them scramble to save their lives and abandon ship and some, with loads of money found they can’t buy anything they wanted, even a place on a lifeboat to save their lives (TDM migration). But not all, for there was a few brave Napoleons who tried to show they are committed to the name of Titanic (BN) and the show continues.

There was an old couple (MIC & PPP) who just lay in bed waiting for the ship to sink, abandoned by the young and too old to move around anymore. There were also musicians (MCA, PBB, LDP, PBRS, PRS, SAPP, SPDP, SUPP, UPKO) still playing the ship’s songs and died like true musicians dedicated to their role of love for the Titanic music. There were also some crew (GERAKAN) still working to plug the leaks at the bottom of the ship until they themselves died thinking they were heroes not knowing the ship cannot be saved just by plugging some holes.

Do you know who was the director of Titanic (BN) show? James Cameron (TDM).

Do you know who the Scriptwriter was? Again TDM!

Did you know this show was shown around the world?

Did you know Malaysia has some of the best actors and actresses and supporting casts?

Anyway, it was just a movie, for the real show has only just begun!

Karamnya “Titanic”(BN) di Malaysia? (Tayangan baru bermula!)

Titanic (BN) Malaysia dianggap tidak boleh tenggelam semasa dilancarkan dahulu. Sungguhpun terlanggar tungkul air batu pada 8 Mac 2008, ia masih sukar dipercayai bahawa ia akan tenggelam. Apabila segala usaha untuk menyelamatkan kapal didapati sia-sia, Kaptennya (DSAB) berdiri bersendirian menunggu qadar dengan muka penuh dukacita. Dia masih berharap Carpentier atau lain-lain kapal berhampiran akan datang menyelamatkan penumpang-penumpangnya. Amatlah sedih ketika itu, melihat Kaptennya menembak beberapa mercun penyelamat untuk memberi isyarat kepada Carpentier tetapi Kapten Carpentier (DSNTR) masih tidak yakin Titanic dalam keadaan kecemasan.

Dalam tayangannya, ada babak percintaan antara Leonardo DiCaprio (DSAI) dan Kate Winslet Azizah). Azizah enggan meninggalkan kekasihnya walaupun terdapat beberapa kejadian yang memungkinnya meninggal kekasihnya dan menyelamatkan diri. Dia memegang kuat kepada harapan agar kedua-dua mereka akan dapat mengharungi bencana yang ditimpa dan akan diselamatkan dari tragedi tersebut. Kedua-dua mereka melalui seksaan mental dan emosional dan diakhirnya tinggal Azizah sahaja yang bercerita berkenaan seorang seorang lelaki yang mengorbankan nyawanya demi menyelamatkan beliau.

Tentang anak-anak kapal Titanic (Little Napoleons) yang menguruskan kapal dan sahabat-sahabat mereka yang kaya dan berwatak korporat, adakah anda nampak muka-muka cemas mereka semasa kapal sedang tenggelam? Ramai antara mereka berebut-rebut menyelamatkan diri untuk meninggalkan kapal dan antara mereka yang kaya-raya, baru tersedar bahawa wang tidak dapat membelikan segala-galanya termasuk satu tempat duduk diatas bot penyelamat untuk menyelamatkan diri (Hijrah TDM). Tetapi bukan semua yang berperangai bagitu. Ada beberapa di antara mereka (Napoleon) yang masih berani mempertahankan nama Titanic dan tayangannya menyambung semula.

Terdapat sepasang orang tua (MIC & PPP) yang terbaring di katil menunggu kapal tengelam yang ditinggalkan mereka oleh anak-anak muda dan tidak larat pula bergerak menyelamatkan diri. Terdapat juga pemain-pemain muzik (MCA, PBB, LDP, PBRS, PRS, SAPP, SPDP, SUPP, UPKO) yang masih memainkan lagu-lagu kapal Titanic, demikianlah sayangnya mereka kepada muzik Titanic. Juga terdapat anak-anak kapal (GERAKAN) yang masih bekerja di bahagian bawah kapal yang cuba menutup kebocoran tetapi akhirnya mati dengan menganggap diri mereka wira tampa mengetahui kapal sudah tidak dapat diselamatkan dengan hanya menutup kebocoran kapal.

Adakah anda ketahui siapakah Direktor tayangan Titanic (BN)? James Cameron (TDM).

Adakah anda ketahui siapakah penulis skrip? Masih TDM.

Adakah anda ketahui tayangan ini dipernunjukan serata dunia?

Adakah anda ketahui Malaysia mempunyai ramai pelakon-pelakon lelaki dan wanita dan pembantu-pembantu seniman dan seniwati.

Tak apalah, ia cuma sebuah tayangan. Tayangan sebenar baru bermula.
