So... no slippers, just sleepers!

Just a hype. When the day came, nothing actually happened. No slippers... just a few anti-Blair banners and placards. It was really anti-climax!

Nope, I wasnt there as I had to attend a function. But I kept track via SMS and few calls to friends who were part of the anti-Blair campaign at the Sunway Convention Centre yesterday morning. Not many Perkasa members attended. Others were university students and NGO members (read here).

What happened? After so much excitement about the demo, it was suddenly reduced from a public rally to a small assembly. I was hoping to see at last 1,000 people based on the response and publicity on blogs and other media.

Poorly organised is perhaps the right word. What could had happened was some parties wanted to claim credit as the main organiser for the rally. I remember what took place when we rallied at the Australian High Commission in February... do you?

And finally, Blair the Liar emerged the winner. Also, organiser Success Resources of Singapore which made good bucks out of it. The former British premier is also paid handsomely for the talks.

Another reason, maybe, is the price of slippers suddenly soared after retailers heard about the 'Thousands Slippers' story. The organisers just couldnt afford it!

even perkasa failed to rally support from its members. ibrahim ali, i think, was a bit disappointed with such a poor response.

anyway as u said, tony blair is the winner here

so pathetic la u people, including bloggers.

after all the publicity u got on the media, not even 100 people turned up. even the familiar bloggers who helped campaigning for the anti-blair bandwagon did not take part.

i wonder what happened. maybe what u said about this 'credit claims' thing is right

betul kot, harga selipar tiba2 je naik 1000 peratus sebab berita perkasa nak sambut blair dgn ribuan selipar ni.

apa lagi. harga pun naik. kalau aku yang jual selipar pun, mesti aku naikkan harga punya.

dah tak banyak selipar jepun kt malaya ni.

wrong timing beb.

they are more concern with hulu selangor rather than attending the protest.

ibrahim ahli chose a wrong time to portray his dominance in perkasa.... when only a few came

blair gelak je tengok kegagalan diorang tu.

aku agak mesti dalam 5,000 orang hadir, lebih2 lagi perkasa yang anjur.

last2 orang yang lalu lalang lebih ramai.

Salam Jai,
President PERKASA yg mencadangkan demostrasi dan pembalingan slippers ini.Orang ramai menanti-nanti untuk melihat kehadiran beribu-ribu orang membaling slipper kepada SiPembohong dan pembunoh Blair ini.Rupa-rupanya rancangan yg digembar gembor itu boleh dikatakan GAGAL.Sunggoh mengcewa dan memalukan.Kegagalan ini membuktikan betapa lemah dan tidak berupayanya PERKASA untuk bertindak dengan berkesan dan positif apabila diperlukan.Ujian pertamanya telah gagal dengan terok sekali.Semangat yg hanya hangat-hangat seperti tahi ayam ini sudah pasti tidak dapat diharap untuk menjadi pejuang dan pembela bangsa.

Memandang kan kau sendiri tak pergi (walau apa pun sebabnya), tak payah nak kecewa pada orang lain yang tak pergi. Macam harap tukul pukul paku, tapi tangan letak dalam poket, marah kat tukul pulak.

askar tua,

the one person who should be protesting is dr m himself. but he can't do that can he. he's just too busy at hulu selangor, something that he never got to do during pak lah's time. by the way where is kj during the announcement?
