On the night of the 8March till dawn of 9March elation and disappointment was experienced, depending on which side of the divide you were on. In
We all can accept teething problems, but we never wanted a major toothache. Lim Kit Siang riled some of us big time because we expected so much from him. He may have apologised to the Sultan but today did I hear it right that he says that he never endorsed the People's Declaration of Barisan Rakyat! Come off it!
What about this from Haris Ibrahim:
On 4th February, civil society launched 2 documents : The People’s Voice and The People’s Declaration.
On 6th February, on behalf of all Malaysians, I had sent copies of both documents to all BN component parties and to DAP, PAS, PKR and PSM with the the expressed hope that these parties would adopt the aspirations declared by the rakyat in these documents as the way forward for our nation.
By Saturday, 16th February, PKR, DAP, PAS, PSM, MDP and PASOK had confirmed their endorsement of The People’s Declaration.
On behalf of the rakyat, let me take this opportunity to thank the leadership of these parties for their swift response and their willingness to heed The People’s Voice.
And you think these people come to Blog House on 23 February 2008 for a picnic? These came and publicly declared their endorsement of the People's Declaration.
AND THESE WITNESSES.
WE HAVE TO.
