blast, found out I cannot join Pribumi
am of wrong ethnicity lah
Thus Mahathir will be able to "organise" a new (he loves the word 'Baru') pribumi-ONLY alliance together with the major part of PKR and Amanah, and the losing but still substantial UMNO (Mahathir's UMNO Baru) to form another de jure (note, NOT de facto) Mahathir government a la Barisan Nasional Most-Baru-est, wakakaka.
And the DAP can either STFU or if it doesn't like that, get the f**ks out of Mahathir's Barisan Nasional Most-Baru-est, to resume its role as federal Opposition.
DAP will then continue being an independent non-aligned political party, as it was back in 1972-3 when it refused to join Tun Razak's newly formed Barisan Nasional (BN). What gain has it made in nearly 50 years?
The reason for my growing confidence but also growing concerns in my prediction of Mahathir's 'Greater Pribumi' aspiration has been Pakatan's very foolish allocation of most of federal seats, especially in Pahang and Johor, to newcomer Pribumi who came to Pakatan with begging bowl.
The senior members of Pakatan (PKR and DAP) had been sold a dangerous tale by a rather vicious so-called ally, Pribumi, and they foolishly gave an unproven untested unknown Pribumi the majority in its recent allocation of federal seats.
And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord's: it is holy unto the Lord.
And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof.
And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the Lord
- Leviticus 27:30-32
Seems the only intelligent people in Pakatan have been the Selangor faction of PKR, Johor Amanah, and a few lonely voices in DAP.
