Then of course there is the current topic of leaping frogs.
But cluck cluck cluck, looks like Khalid Ibrahim could have chicken-ed out on the deputy MB deal.
According to the Star Online, Selangor exco will not have Deputy MB post.
Mind you, it’s a Star report, so 75% off, and let’s wait until Monday to see whether Khalid Ibrahim has reverted to his 'former' natural nurtured nature.
Anyway, in the meanwhile, let’s analyse the report by the Bintang (not beer, but the newspaper that sweetie Helen Ang of Malaysiakini has urged us to boycott). It would seem that Khalid Ibrahim may NOT have a Deputy MB under a revised exco.
To add insult (to Teresa Kok) to injury (for the DAP), his power distribution formula will see DAP’s allocation reduced from four to three. Yes, perhaps he isn't allowed to have too many (non-correct) ‘Malaysians’ in his administration.
Aiyah, we may say in sympathy, be reasonable, after all Khalid is ONLY the mentri besar of the State. For those DAP pollies missing out in Selangor, my advice if that in the next election, go over to Perak.
However, as a consolation prize (the perennial lot of Chinese Malaysians, it seems, whether under UMNO or PKR) one of the three DAP exco members will be appointed senior exco member but tasked with overseeing investments.
Perhaps Teresa Kok may get it, perhaps not especially when she suffers from the Malaysian political handicap known as the terrible tormenting triple ‘C’ – Chinese, Christian and Char-bor.
Mind you, Teresa is charming, competent and clean, but alas, that won’t make an iota of difference in our ‘colour’ful, caste-conscious and conservative (&morally corrupt) politics.
I am not so much against DAP losing the 6+4 formula with the Star reported Khalid’s new (PKR/PAS/DAP respectively) distribution of 5+2+3. It's not so much the numbers of DAP members in the State exco but the upholding of principle of PKR-DAP cooperation as manifested in Teresa Kok as Deputy MB, namely, the integrity and sincerity and commitment by PKR.
We of course know why, but it’s sad because to us ordinary people, it would appear that Khalid Ibrahim lacks the courage, commitment and consistency to provide the promised brand new multiethnic politics of Bangsa Malaysia.
Go ahead and cry, curse and complain.
