Najib's Pathetic Plea in PERMATANG PAUH

Elections usually bring out the worst elements in humans and the PP by-elections is no exception.
We have ministers and other senior government neglecting their duties and spending taxpayers' monies on the campaign trail. Unless I am mistaken, these people should be busy in Putrajaya trying to keep Malaysia's tottering economy strong but I suppose they will do anything to keep their nemesis Anwar away from Parliament.

It appears from this malaysiakini article:
Najib wants Indians, Chinese to back BN
that the BN has still not learned anything from the last GE when it lost its 2/3 majority in Parliament.

The DPM hopes to entice the Chinese and Indians voters with some token giveaways like scrap metal licences and aid to schools. Where was the BN all this while? Just because PP was in the opposition does not mean a government should withhold development.

The voters in PP should tell the DPM what he can do with his promises by giving a strong mandate to Anwar.

Bungaraya was struck by the following:

Najib wants Indians, Chinese to back BN

He told them to reject the opposition.


“do not gamble with your children’s future by supporting the opposition candidate who had been making false promises.”

“Do not be easily hoodwinked by the opposition promises and fall for their trickery because if we were to believe them, we will be quarreling with each other.”


Opposition makes false promises; we will be quarreling with each other...

Wow man, that was so deep... Surely, that'llto change the hearts and minds of all those lost sons and daughters of the family of national UMNITY.

BTW, was there a touch of racism in there? Talking about gambling when appealing to the Indians and Chinese? And "quarreling with each other"? Does that imply a racial quarrel? Just asking...
