While some people see this as damning evidence of our PM allegedly bribing or buying votes, I see this as something different entirely.
Najib is a much better orator than our previous PM. In fact, he is a much better orator than most of our opposition leaders. He also raised a couple of issues that are actually pertinent to the politics of our nation. Our opposition governments must be seen as capable of doing things and delivering. Unfortunately, I feel that they have squandered most of the opportunities given to them because they do not have the guts to actually bring about change, even if it is just at the local level.
One issue that I see emerging from the different PR-led states is that they all seem to show a different brand of government. While I don’t really know if this is a good or a bad thing, I do see it as a potential issue because I doubt that it would sell very well at the federal level. It is fine having different flavours of government for different states in order to cater to the different needs. However, at the federal level, such flavours would signal a problem.
Well, those are just my 2 sen.
