"The country is in turmoil," says my mother in one of her emails to me.
Now some of you may know that I am not currently in Malaysia, and haven't been for a while due to work requirements.
But I have been keeping up with the latest news from this blooming country. Even if I hadn't, there are so many friends sending me snippets of news.
So this latest fiasco of frogging about has not escaped me at all.
I would hardly describe the country as being in turmoil. I can't think of a better time to expose the sorry behaviour of politicians - both from (or should I say, formerly) Pakatan Rakyat and Barisan Nasional.
And I wouldn't be the first to remind you that all this leap-frogging was started by none other than the Pakatan Rakyat leader, Anwar Ibrahim.
If the people really wanted to make a change in this country, the polls are the place for it.
I still think Malaysia is not ready for liberation. The minds of the general Malaysian public are still in shackles, and thus so will be their political situation.
It's tough to explain. Malaysians have recently started speaking out due to a wave of "boldness" which emerged from the internet, but it is not out of principle, but more from a sense of being wronged.
Now if their rights are not personally being infringed, they really don't care.
But all is not lost.
I think Najib, in his own blundering way, has actually evoked a deeper need within Malaysians to unite at all costs against a common enemy. Alas, but UMNO is still blinded by their selfish ambitions to realise they will one day be totally annihilated.
That wouldn't be a bad thing.
