Of numbers games...

Is it that important to know whether 30,000 or 75,000 or 150,000 or 700,000 attended last week's Himpunan Rakyat? To me, the numbers are not that important. The message is - the rakyat is no longer blinded by 1-sided truth spewed by the powers of the day!

Whilst those in greens, yellows, orange, reds join the festivities in Stadium Merdeka, 1MPM6 makes a not so grand entrance in Selangor, distributing goodies for the not-so fortunate from the Indian community. My, my, how things change for 1MPM6 when he plays second fiddle to Himpunan Rakyat in Stadium Merdeka.

The day after, 1MPM6 makes another visit to Klang to celebrate Ponggal. 2 days in a row 1MPM6 availed himself to the Indian community. Why? Is UMNO and MCA incapable of dishing out programmes fitting for 1MPM6? Or is UMNO and MCA resigning to the popular notion that the end is near for BN?

Of course, 1MPM6's programmes could not match the numbers of Himpunan Rakyat. Not only that, many of the government-sponsored programmes could no longer brings out the crowd like the heydays of UMNO.

Some may ask, what's in the numbers? For many, numbers are just numbers but to UMNO, numbers seems to be everything! Whilst UMNO Johor used to be the one holding the fort, now UMNO Johor is resorting to scare tactics to keep off opposition supporters. 

That is in peninsular Malaysia. What about East Malaysia? The ongoing RCI is getting scary! If this is true, then is it possible for more than 100K "instant voters" decided the government of the day for Sabah?
Till then...G'nite M'sia...wherever u are...
