There should be no place for political frogs. Malaysians must tell our politicians they cannot accept such unprincipled politicians. It does not matter whether they are from BN, PKR, DAP or PAS but there should be laws to stop such unethical politicians. There has to be consistency, however, when we push for such legislation. There cannot be a right to a wrong. If a BN elected representative joins Pakatan Rakyat, it is still wrong. It cannot be right. We cannot justify it simply because of our political emotions.
It should be the same when a Pakatan Rakyat elected representative defects to the BN. Many of us choose to forget the Pakatan Rakyat's attempt to capture the federal government after the March 8 polls. Despite the BN being democratically elected to lead the federal government, the PR went on a frog-hunting trip. In fact, Tian Chua even said the collapse of the BN federal government was inevitable and a foregone conclusion. He even went on a trip to Taiwan, together with a few top leaders, to get BN MPs to defect. Not many people seemed ready to condemn such actions.
Even Yong Teck Lee and his SAPP MPs pulled out of the BN despite being voted on BN tickets. Their actions then were cheered by PR leaders and supporters, regarding it as a prelude to Sept 16. The defections were then justified purportedly on moral grounds and political righteousness. It's time for a law to stop party hopping.
