Najib and co just refuse to learn. Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein is discovering, much to his dismay, that he has no remarkable prowess for predicting the future, as contrary to his claims, there was a big turnout.
An aptly sarcastic quote from Hishamuddin Rais, one of the organisers of Janji Demokrasi:
“I really appreciate the Home Affairs Minister (Hishammuddin Hussein), who has the ability to become a bomoh and Pak Nujum (witchdoctor and fortune teller), like a seer who can see the future.
“That is good. That is really good. For us, it not a question of how big or how small the crowd will be. It is people coming that night wearing yellow,” Hishamuddin Rais said.
The number is somewhat smaller at 10,000 (though some witnesses have placed it at 50,000) this time, but it's probably expected with the long weekend (and the rain).
Malaysians are speaking up -- loud and clear!
