(BN in distress, Anwar is back! Image source: The People’s Parliament)
What a win!
The final official majority is 15,671 votes. Anwar secured 31,195 votes; Ariff 15,524 votes and Akim’s Hanafi Mamat 92 votes (deposit lost).
And interestingly this is despite:-
BN pushing its whole election machinery to fight against one man (the TV, the newsprint, the money, the swearing, prominent spokesmen including top government officials – in the case of swearing);
Khairy making the arrogant remarks that they will bury Anwar’s political ambitions in this by election;
The sodomy accusations against Anwar;
The swearing on the Quran against Anwar;
There is a discrepancy between the Election Commission’s figure for the voter turnout of 65 per cent turnout and the actual turnout, which was 80 per cent;
Anwar still made with a bigger majority than his wife did in the last general election.… [Click to read the rest] “Anwar: I am Back!”
(There are things that even some leaders of this country have forgotten. Still want to celebrate Merdeka ah? Image source: http://sivinkit.net)
There is about 5 days before we celebrate our Independence Day but yet there is no “scent” of any Hari Merdeka celebrations seen in the open.

Tomorrow is D-Day for not only Anwar but the whole of Malaysia as well. Nothing said it better than this comment in Anilnetto:-
A stall-holder next to the Masjid Jamek told me: “Harap-harap kita dapat undi majoiriti 10-14,000 bang, 27 juta rakyat malaysia sedang menanti ini…(Hope to get a majority of 10-14,000, 27 million Malaysians are waiting…)

Remember the teacher who said derogatory words against students and got away with it?
She was “rewarded” and everything seems to be swept under the carpet (as usual). But MIC kept up with the fight – man, they had to do otherwise there is no point they to be claiming to be championing the rights of the Indians, right?… [Click to read the rest] “If MIC cannot solve this…”
(Sometimes I am like this when I am angry. Image source: http://getcontagio.us)
I was angry this morning – not sure why. Perhaps it is due to Monday blues but I was not sure but I ready for a punch out this morning (ya, I was looking for trouble)
I was angry at the girl at the toll booth for collecting my money fraction seconds slower, I was angry at the idiots who cut into my lane without any warning, I was angry at the road hogger was slower than me and just do not want to move away, I was angry at the factory girls who were crossing the road slowly even though I was speeding and aiming “straight” at them, I was just too angry.… [Click to read the rest] “I was angry!”

Throughout the one-hour journey, during which he switched trains, the Prime Minister noted the congestion, especially during the peak period, and spoke to his fellow passengers to get feedback.
Speaking to Bernama after disembarking at the Masjid Jamek LRT station, he said he was not satisfied and wanted immediate improvements to be made.
