Whether it's Karpal against Ramasamy or Hasan Ali vs Mustafa Ali, to me all this is getting too melodramatic. They get so much attention for nothing.
I don't know why the Press and blogs gave them too much space. You think they simply want to put their respective parties -DAP and PAS - at rickety and let others, especially those in Barisan Nasional to gain some advantages?
These people are mature politicians, matured enough to weigh the adverse impact of their action on their party. Why must their strip naked and let others bugger them?
After all, general election is just around the corner. While PM Najib is waiting for some 'signs' as to when is the right time to dissolve the Parliament, there is no logic for the Opposition to open up their party to the onslaught of others.
If there is a real rift among them, the Opposition is only courting trouble as any unresolved internal issue will be very costly for their dream of wresting Putrajaya from Barisan Nasional. While the party members are hoping for the best in the next outing, they can't afford to take such internal crisis to their campaign.
So, it is a melodrama by the Opposition, and some BN leaders are already buying the tickets to watch it. They are already making so many statements and comments about the 'bickering' among the Opposition leaders. To be precise, they are falling into this simple political trap.
Those at rift are political hooligans. They want cheap publicity for their political platform. As their popularity goes down among their own supporters, they need a vehicle to recharge.
And the best choice is to moot an idea among themselves, write the script, direct it and tailor themselves to what was planned. Not so difficult as they are already good natural actors. All they needed was just a perfect rehearsal.
Now, when the drama gets popular, it leaves BN politicians and analysts to no choice but to watch and pass remarks about it, just like many who spoke about anti-Namewee but also went to the cinema to watch his 'Nasi Lemak 2.0'.
That is how some BN politicans, inlcuding ministers made stupid gain by coming out with various comments about the crisis in DAP and PAS. However, instead of getting lauded for inviting Rama and Hasan Ali to join Umno should they choose to leave their respective parties, they are getting chided and criticised.
All this leads to a common public perception - that BN is so hard up to have this few people from the Opposition to join them, forgetting the fact that more BN senior politicians had left the ruling party to join Pakatan Rakyat or going against the BN.
Please leave Karpal, Ramasamy, Hasan and Mustafa alone. Let them batter each other because it has nothing to do with BN, especially Umno. We would be happy if they finally shake hands and reconcile. If this happens, who will 'malu'?
There is no need for us to invite them into Barisan Nasional. The ruling party is well-recognised and needs no ads and marketing. We should stay focus and attend to our own problems before we can build confidence for the next national poll.
Do not be sucked into the Opposition's affairs. Let them be. If the crisis is for real, BN will indirectly gain some boost out of it. However, when we start to 'interfere' in their internal-but-publicised affairs, we already turned ourselves as political cheapskates.
