Where Art thou?
Away in his chambers, enjoying the dedak provided by the backdoor PM?

Thank you Surendra and BFM for giving this explanation with respects the no-confidence motion against the backdoor PM.
Is the motion really putting our nation into political turmoil?
I beg to differ – the current backdoor government lacks legitimacy!
If it can win that vote of no-confidence, all the frogs and leeches in that government can hold their heads up high – I , for one will no longer dare to call it a backdoor government!!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
