The NST interviewed three election officers who all fervently declared that training they went through was so exhaustive that there is "simply no room to cheat". Question: were you people involved in the scrutinising of the electoral roll? Then how come the hordes of dead are still on the roll....of course dead men tell no tales....why did the police arrest two Bersih officials in front of Istana Negara who sent a note to the Agung this morning.....if everything is in order why act against these people.....why are people living in one state finding out that they are registered to vote in another state? so many WHYS would never be asked if we are convinced that the election mechanism is clean and aboveboard.
Will these election personnel get a chance to vote - 199,000 of them. Of course, by POSTAL VOTE! if you don't mind. These two words, POSTAL VOTES leaves a rattish odour in the air?
I am not attempting to rat on the election commission but would all these postal votes of election personnel be helicoptered to or navigated to emergency polling stations to do some damage control or rescue ops. You guys will remember that a number two won by postal votes in 2004 somewhere in the wooded central range kingdom.
I can't help having such rabid ratty thoughts. Many BN leaders and especially their main communication organ dedicated a full page on the power of 8. Luck. Even Sure-gonner Samy celebrates his birthday on the eight day of the month....13 is also a big luck number. So is it all about luck? Even religious interpretation of the number 8 had some airing.
Will there be 8 helicopters and 8 boats on standby to transport transparent boxes of Postal Votes to any destinations that are still undecided after 8 counts?
HEY, EC DON'T STEAL MY CHEESE AT GE!
dang.....these thoughts are draining me of fluids....time to hop over to Champs for dinner and Macallan with Richard, my former student. dang,,,,,I can now smell the ribeye I am going to have....at least I'll be rid of the rattish smell pervading.....see you tomorrow at Parliament House at the March of the Roses.
