Sigh, but words are all we have at the moment, Bridget.
Yes, it is obvious to any political observer that all is not well in UMNO.
Can the cakap tak sama bikin PM split UMNO to his advantage come GE15?
In Malaysia, money is king and this PM has publicly declare he will use it to his advantage.
No, I am not happy about it , but I am ready to accept the results of GE15, warts and all, for that is the state of democracy we are at. But not frogs, toads and GLC heads in a cesspool of Putrajaya like now.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
