Two by-elections now

The Kedah MB has just confirmed that V Arumugam of PKR has quit as Exco member and Bukit Selambau assemblyman. This paves the way for a second by-election at the state level, following the by-election for the parliamentary seat of Bukit Gantang which has to be called following the death of PAS MP Roslan Shaharum.

The two by-elections, coming in the wake of the Perak political changeover, will be an interesting test for Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat.

Everyone is feeling the heat, and there is just no let-up in the soaring political temperature in the country. There is even an eclipse of the moon tonight.

Arumugam quit over allegations of adultery, which is not even a crime. If only other polticians can have the same sense of honour! There are so many who have allegations of corruption, murder, sexual scandal on video, sex with under-age girls, etc who refuse to quit !

The 3 frogs in Perak should quit like Arumugam. Have honour. The two duos charged with corruption should quit. And the lady who is now cursed and sworn at by her own constituents should quit, as she no longer represents them. BN, by accepting ( or rather coercing for ) their support is tainted by these 3 persons' dishonour.

Whatever he is being accused of, at least, V. Arumugam is a gentleman in resigning his EXCO post and his state seat, unlike the four frogs in Perak. Well done.

Whom God wishes to destroy, he first makes mad.

Malaysia has gone mad. In the mist of the biggest economic problem in history, we have all this political coup, and now multiple by-elections.

Heaven is telling us something.

Our almighty GOD has did a good job to create 2 by elections - 1 for ADUN at Kedah and 1 for Parliment at Perak, which both state were eyeing by the greedy BN & UMNO... It's not a coincident, history is in the making again...

This time, let's show how strong PR is... let's BN & UMNO makan telur this time...

I heard Barisan Nasional is giving special tablets to its assemblymen and MPs to prolong their lives. They cant afford any more by-election defeats. I will keep followers of this posted on the latest. In the meantime, cheers from Tanjong Rambutan Pub.
