I have been away for almost 2 weeks, roaming some places in and out of the country. Some interesting events took place since then - the PKR saga, Anwar's sodomy case, Wee Choo Keong quits PKR, Sime Darby and of course, the Sibu by-election which BN lost!
Lost? Hmmm.... local politics. It really sucks!
For all the effort, project-promo and round-the-clock campaign, we ended as losers. Unlike Hulu Selangor, Sibu was said to be among the safe constituency for Barisan Nasional. Nevertheless, lots of lesson to be learnt.
When will Prime Minister reshuffle the Cabinet? A few heads have to roll, many suggested. Rumors are that Nor Yakcop and 2 ministers will be chopped, 2 deputies will be promoted to full ministers while 3 others will be dropped.
Former MCA President Ong Tee Keat will be retained, I think while the guy who trashed him in party elections a month ago, Chua Soi Lek has declined any Cabinet position until the next election next year... a true gentleman!
I also hope to see one or two Mentri Besar to be removed. Umno should know who and who and why they have to be replaced by better candidates.
