I hope you did the right thing

With less than 1.5 hours left to vote, I guess most of you have voted. I hope you did the right thing.

MCA and Gerakan's last minute plea for clemency on the basis that not voting in their candidates will result in less Chinese representation in the cabinet and govt took me by surprise. At the same time, it also tells us that the Opposition is in a better position than initially thought.

If you have not voted yet, do so. And don't be swayed by MCA and Gerakan's threat of reduced Chinese in the cabinet and govt. Remember! More Chinese ministers and govt officials from those 2 parties simply means that there are more eunuchs to serve their emperor, UMNO.

The fact that UMNO will be emperor for another 4 years is almost beyond doubt. But we have the power to make sure that this emperor has fewer MCA eunuchs and Gerakan concubines (ministers & political secretaries) to sodomise at every whim. At the same time, we make sure that the mandarins (MPs) in this emperor's court (parliament) are independent and not beholden to agree with his every decree.

We are better off having a strong Opposition presence in parliament to block UMNO from changing the constitution and pushing through their agenda, than to have many MCA and Gerakan office boys in the cabinet to obediently carry out the instructions of UMNO.
