I for one, am a minute observer of politics but am absolutely vary of the tricks of politicians and other orchestrated police's tricks ! Of course when you have the money (enough of it to be vulgarly satisfied ) politics would be the ultimate goal for any man who thinks he's popular enough...it's just an ego trip to test his popularity and boy its a mile long !!......and if he admits, he not got what it takes or clout...naturally plan B would be to back (financially and physically ) a certain 'popular horse' to do the winning for you ! This 'horse' is the pawn !
Coming back to Ijok....smells rotten already, both for the 2 candidates and the simple locals or "orang kampong" who have for so long been ignored and have lived life within their means and along comes this by-election... some say ..about time too ! Ooohhh... the promises that is spewing out of mouths of politicians and supporters coupled with the presence of political parasites doing strange things they'd never do in their wildest dreams ...like hugging sick and under-nourished children, pretending to be attentively "listening" to an old man's problem, visiting old folks homes, building suraus, promising to "rebuild a CHURCH" ? eating in road-side stalls, hugging all who happen to pass by, riding motor-cycles (without helmets!) , even 'rowing a boat' and engaging in small talk with mutes ! New roads, pot-holes levelled, fresh coat of paint for all old buildings and street-lights that were never in the bigger plans in the first place ! By the way did you notice the presence of our mounted police ? Yes.... we have seen the monkeys already... but what horse-shit is this ???
My...my what shallow hippocrisy ! After tomorrow it's back to their fast cars, fancy restuarants and suits and high powered cocktail functions !!
And that is the sad part of being dragged (whether knowingly or unknowingly) into this thing called "politics". The victor will continue to lie about his promises for awhile (citing lack of funds...remember all those millions 'used' for his campagaine ?) and the loser will lick his wounds and claim the whole damn thing was "fixed" and the rest of us morons will continue....no... MUST pray for another politician to DIE !( I like the package that comes with a by-election !)
It is a vicious circle, folks (in this case I hope...the lesser evil ! ) so live and let live ....from me its... Cheeeeers !
