The crowd arrived in about half a dozen buses, and many sported yellow headbands bearing the words “Daulat Tuanku”

hey everyone… actually this ‘happening’ around us i.e. the malaise en malaisie, or the malaysian situation can turn out a bit painful and embarrassing at the same time. … i hope, by the grace of god, we would manage to rectify the current ‘electric’ emotions among malaysians by good governance. embarrassing cos here we are, an advanced nation wannabe, still find it hard to accept liberal views. our people need to keep cool and not let go off steam unnecessarily. please, let calmness rule our head. our misunderstanding lies to the fault of our leaders. leaders who rave and rant… Read more »
Anil, I understand that 1000 or more BN/UMNO youths were at the illegal gathering and shouting ‘KETUANAN MELAYU’.Were the MCA, MIC & PPP youths who were there also shouted ‘KETUANAN MELAYU’ in unison with the UNMO youths. Just curious.
Anil, thanks for the updates. Just like everyone else, I am waiting to see what is going to happen in Perak. Let’s pray everything ends peacefully.
I am rather surprised about Karpal’s views about Anwar. Any idea why Karpal is so angry? Is trouble brewing in the oppostion camp? I certainly hope not. The opposition must stay united if they want to make bring about changes in our beloved country.
be worry… most malays got cheated by the MSM, they believe the PR had ‘menderhaka’towards sultan and more on land issues … the oldies and people with no internet got fool easily, that what i conclude here in penang… the PR should start doing roadshow nationwide to tell the truth to the rakyat…
The ruling regime (could be) stimulating the Malaysian economy by (perhaps rewarding) defecting politicians from the other side.
Eh,… somebody check the crowd in the UMNO rally. …
Dear Anil Talking generally, it will take another 50-100 years before the sons of the soil will learn what is happening around the world. See Indonesia, India and many democratice countries haave had a look at the Institution of Sultanate and have taken proper decisions. The Reason is this : the UMNO government is throwing so much money to a particular community; so they fear that they will lose their free enjoyment at the cost of other rakyat. Well they have to work hard to earn money – like everyone else. See the number of unemployment. Many factories have closed… Read more »
How much do they think people & even the Sultan Of Perak would believe in their so called loyalty ? Shame on them !
Nizar is really something else, isn’t he?
So quiet and unassuming – who would have thought that underneath it all lie such nerves of steel?
And through it all, he never once pointed fingers.
Never blamed Anwar for the defections.
Never pointed finger at PKR and DAP, although it was their leaping reps which caused his Government to fall.
Always putting up a brave and positive front.
Nizar has actually made PAS a lot more palatable to the rest of the nation.
Bless u Nizar and take care.
Another three in Perak to defect?
By Lee Wei Lian (The Malaysian Insider)
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 9 — Speculation is rife that four more state assemblymen from Pakatan Rakyat (PR) parties are ready to defect to the Barisan Nasional (BN).
The four names being cited in various text message exchanges are Keshvinder Singh (DAP) from Malim Nawar, A. Siva Subramanium (DAP) from Buntong and S. Kesavan (PKR) from Hutan Melintang and Tai Sing Ng (PKR) from Kuala Sepetang.
I don’t understand the suggestion for Nizar to run for Bukit Gantang. Doesn’t he already have a seat? I know a state can have 2 MBs, can an MB have 2 seats? Would he have to hold 2 hands up in votes?
Bukit Gantang is a parliamentary seat, the other is a state assembly seat. – Anil
Gimme five, Anil! Sorry to hear about the cash you forgot to take from the ATM. What a drag! Curious to know what you were so engrossed with at the time 🙂
State Secretary Datuk Dr Abdul Rahman Hashim said the Sultan of Perak had consented to the postponement of the function after considering the safety of the people.
Nasi sudah jadi bubur….
look at last night event la the UMNO fellows will shake went they see the real pakatan supporters who came and supports
Hahahaha! No even 1000 lah, semua supporters with umno t-shirts and yellow band. My guess is something like 800. I happened to pass by and stopped my car just to take a look but unfortunately didn’t have my digicam with me then. Those …. were climbing on top of one another for the cameras to create a huge crowd! LOL !!!!!
I am very surprise that now UMNO is campaigning for the support of the Royal Sultanate. If you all could remember during the Mahathir’s administrstion, UMNO started to erode the power of the Agung and the Royal Sultanate. UMNO is a registered 100% hypocrite. Now these UMNO hypocrites imported bus loads … to Ipoh (a handsome amount of pocket money is included?) supporters to pledge their support… how low can these … UMNO politicians go? The crisis in Perak now is about democratic process and as BeNd has officially 28 elected seats and PKR has 28 seats and three seats… Read more »
‘daulat tunku” now wont helps.
As “daulat tunku” from this group of people once calls another sultan as ….. strips their power and more.
Why it is now after PR came into the big picture that the sultans are getting bolder?
They bus them in from all over West Malaysia and yet there were only 1000? Those guys must be the cream of mediocrity. No wonder they have to resort to Godfather methods (making people offers they can’t refuse) to gain power.
Why the 1000 protest by UMNO no FRU … damn
i think each of them will getting rm ??? for makan and transport percuma bus rombongan lah biasa umno style
only 1000 ha…ha…ha…ha…malui….malu….

As a citizen from IPOH, initially i though they will call for a new election, but NO. I m working in bangkok, and have seen how King of Thailand manage/resolve thai political issues, wisely. I were the 1st time of my life seeing a state of malaysia – Perak, changing state government without having to ask/request/vote from us, the Malaysia – Perakians. Is this the democratic style ? in malaysia ? If my vote for PKR is lesser than the majority in the election, i accept the final results. But now my vote for PKR, 1 of the representative switch/flip/change… Read more »
