For a start this is not an analysis of what went wrong for PR in both the by-elections of Merlimau and Kerdau today. I'm sure there will be a few in the next few days.
First things first, BN's formula is working and they are regaining their strength day by day. Their ultimate tools Perkasa & Dr. Mahathir racist rhetoric and Utusan has been doing a good job in regaining the masses back to the fold. If not, how else to explain the increased in majority?
In addition, the Interlok issue has not been a crowd puller even for the Chinese and Indian voters in Merlimau and Kerdau this time around. Hindraf has lost its plot and their main supporters i.e. Indian voters are going back to BN big time.
Lets not forget the powerful BN machinery which is ever ready to do what it takes to get the votes in. It seems the BN machinery has been given an impetus with the likes of Ummi Hafilda even after 13 years of low profile.
So, what happens now? I guess the stage is set for UMNO/BN to call the shots. Is PR ready for GE13? I hope they are coz as Raja Petra put it "it's now or never" if we wanna change the government in Malaysia.
So, bring it on! We the people will press on for a change in Malaysia simple because We Deserve Better!!!
We will press on for a better governance in this country.
We will press on for a just and free Malaysia where all Malaysians are treated equally.
We will press on till we see the day this oppressive BN government is replaced with a government of the people, by the people and for the people!
Malaysians, We Deserve Better!!!
