Mutiny On The ....

It's open season of mutiny.

And if one would only retrieve all the cutlery lodged deep in the backs of various people, there'd be enough for a mess hall feeding an entire army.

I don't know when it all started. But a pact these days, evidently doesn't mean much.

I've always thought PAS at least had some semblance of integrity. But going against the pact made during the recent general elections, they seek to engage UMNO in discussions.

The same UMNO which has perpetually smeared PAS' name by painting them as fuddy-duddy old Islamists (with a streak of misogyny), that are way past their time.

UMNO's indiscretions have also left MCA and Gerakan feeling insecure.

Perhaps, it was the final straw that broke the camel's back. But in a rare display of disunity, both MCA and Gerakan called for open and transparent investigation into the Anwar Ibrahim sodomy case.

Now open and transparent investigation is an alien concept in Bolehland.

We traded off integrity and honesty for stability and economic wealth, a mistake we will inevitably pay dearly for.

As long as the corrupt despots remain in power, there will never be justice, equality and freedom.

But when push comes to shove, alliances are abandoned and pretences set aside.

I look forward to the future.

For I believe the public has matured - awareness evoked and discernment exercised. I'm sure there are better things to come.
