Weekend hive of activity in Penang


Penang has become a hive of political activity this weekend.

On Friday, PSM held a 30-table fund-raising dinner in Bayan Baru. PSM secretary general Arutchelvan said whether BN, Pakatan or ‘third force’, what really mattered at the end of the day was ‘people power’. Jeyakumar Devaraj, on the other hand, said it was important to check feudal and pro-corporate elements from creeping into Pakatan. See Malaysiakini report PSM welcomes third force to kick BN out.

Last night, over 1,000 people attended a Pakatan ceramah in Balik Pulau. The Penang State Assembly Speaker said the state government would hand out RM100 to single mothers and disabled persons next year if they register with the local JKKK, said one eye-witness at the scene. (I hope this won’t be tied to voter registration lists.)

Anwar plans to distribute Apco documents nationwide. “He’s on a BN rampage now,” he adds. Also addressing the ceramah were Guan Eng and Chegu Bard.

Today, the Pakatan is holding its national convention at Dewan Millennium in Kepala Batas. It promises to be a much-watched affair, especially in the wake of the Zaid Ibrahim hoo-ha and the much discussed PKR elections. Expect a rallying of the Pakatan faithful and attempts to close ranks ahead of the Tenang by-election and the Sarawak state election.

Let this bloke knows that the “Royal Gravy Train” was just refueled with the latest Najib’s special award of a contract…vacancy for a porter,… Vacancy for Railway Sleepers is more appropriate for supporters of the Orient Gravy Express! (Express for Cepat Kaya or Get Rich Quick) Not only are these noisy mindless blokes thick skinned for the job, they are good/appropriate for the running over by CHANGE supporters and decent supporters of PR in this blog. And they are ready fair weather, lazy supports for the gravy train as long as they are fed with trickles of leftover grains on… Read more »

Anwar. What is it about this guy?

You can throw as much mud at him as you can, but it doesn’t seem to be able to stick.

The true untouchable. The one that resonates among the people.

With every trick you try, it flies back in your face.

It must be very frustrating for some people.

Gerakan K

Kesian Anwar.

At his age and total wealth, he should be enjoying his life to the fullest.

Why he likes to court trouble ???

Due to his court case, he maybe return to the jail again.

You should tell that to someone else who’s much older and who doesn’t seem to be able to keep his trap shut…just like you.
