I don’t care what other people think about our monarchy, I have always thought that they are a necessary part of our formula for government. Regardless of whether people think that the palace worked independently or at the behest of the government, I think that our King managed to cool some heads and lower the temperature.
For now, I think that it is a good thing that our constitutional monarch recognises the legitimacy of the Bersih 2.0 movement. Negotiations were held with people who have been accused of being foreign stooges, plotters to wage war against the king, and of being an illegal organisation.
I guess that with the royal sanction, this illegal rally has just become legal.
See you on the 9th. Regardless of whether you are coming or not, wear yellow in solidarity!
