How stupid can things get with our government. Let’s recap developments for just today.
#1 – Our King has struck a deal with the organisers of Bersih. As a result, everyone was happy to have the rally in a stadium instead of the streets.
#2 – Our Prime Minster has publicly declared that Bersih should have the rally in a stadium instead of on the streets.
#3 – Our Home Minister declares that Bersih is still illegal even if our King has struck a deal with them. I don’t know if this is considered derhaka or if the King is now guilty of bargaining with criminals.
#4 – The Bersih application to use Stadium Merdeka as the rally point has been promptly rejected on the excuse of some last-minute and random upgrade works being carried out.
#5 – Our police continue to intimidate and pressure the people. Today, they started blocking the roads in KL on the pretense of searching for weapons such as yellow t-shirts.
Does the government plan to incarcerate all the rally participants, thus preventing them from participating in snap polls predicted to be called soon? Does the government plan to incarcerate any opposition politicians found participating in the rally, thus disqualifying them from running in the coming general elections?
If that’s our governments’ plan, they are truly in need of some Blue-Ocean thinking. They are bereft of any thought.
All I can say is this – pray for the people rallying on the 9th. The government seems to want to force things to a head – to what end?
