Star Online has the story (here) also Malaysiakini (here)

aisay! I don't remember why I liked the late Tan Chee Khoon but he was a good guy..yes?

I think I was young & shallow (now am just shallow) but I liked TanCK's face more than the other Tan (Tan Koon Suan I think is the name)

I hope this young Tan is like the old Tan I liked.

There are SOME people who are totally NOT their dads.

Myself awreddy takut of those scions of big guys - or is it scions of scorpions?

Is Dr Tan, a chip of the old block?
I have the highest respect for his late father DS Tan Chee Khoon. A very independent minded and a man of high integrity...loved by both sides of the political fence.
Dr Tan will be a good man to have in PK. It is indeed pleasing to see the right people, moving over to the opposition, welcome on board.
If this is a sign of more memebers from component parties bailing out and joining PKR, it will simply be wonderful.

It is not about what is right or wrong
It is about the country’s future that counts
MPs in BN make your choice………….
Serve the right leader to flourish the nation

The flip-flop executions
The undecided routes to take
The plots and twists of catching one person
These BN leaders can’t manage the affairs

Knowing how hard the people try to save
Increasing costs eating into their pockets
Yet we read about BN MPs going for field trip
Without plan and schedules…………
Just thought about it and decided to go
This is BN for us to follow?

BN MPs look into the mirrors
Know who voted you there in the first place
It is the people choice not your party
You serve the people not your party bosses

Now do the honorable thing
Give back the choices of the people
Be a gentleman do the right thing
Make the people happy living peacefully
Forget about BN enough damages already

It is not about what is right or wrong
It is about our future in this country
We can’t allow goons to advice us what to do
Sleeping until the sun rises

They don’t know what’s happening
One still talks about ISA RPK
When face to face engagement should be right forum
Open the doors let us entertain each other
About policies, laws, economics, transparency, accountability

BN MPs where are your stand?
On the sinking ship you will have no place to go
Else go to the people choice at least you can live
On the dry ground living free
It is on your move else don’t cry when it arrives

Wow! This is bloody exciting how the events are unfolding.

I still won't allow myself to believe 916 is actually going to happen. I just can't. I can't bear the disappointment if 916 fails.

While the BN walls are a crackin, one dropout's arse is constricted with fear. Imagine him wetting himself while watching Anwar being sworn in. I think this is one 'swearing' that will haunt him till they close the cell door on him.

So what if DSAI becomes the next PM? On reflection, it might not be a bad thing for the 23 year old salad tosser. Afterall, being caught between-a-cock-and-a-hard-embrace by burly inmates is estacy of the highest swearing order.

quality people are leaving BN and coming to the 'party that cares'.

Old Fart said...

A year ago or so I sent Dr Tan an e-mail telling him to cross over then. I told him why his continued stay with any BN parties was untenable. Wonder if he read it though.

Anyway, to now say that it was only after March 8 he began to see the light, it would seem like he might just be opportunistic considering that he was left by the way side by his own party long before that and he was even dropped from contesting. It would seem like he'd rather get on the roller coaster after its built then to help build the roller coaster itself.

You mean BN government in NS will change hands ahead of BN government in PutraJaya ? This is certainly an interesting proposition.

Anything for a better Malaysia, but BN won't be part of it. They @#$% up big time.

But one sparrow does not make Spring. Where are the others?

Well done !
It's always not too late to have a change or correct oneselffrom worst to good.

Every minute you are thinking of evil, you might have been thinking of good instead. Refuse to pander to a morbid interest in your own misdeeds. Pick yourself up, be sorry, shake yourself, and go on again.

In the I-Ching, the ancient Chinese book of divination, there is a hexagram called "Revolution". In a revolution, it says "Two mistakes must be avoided. You must not move with excessive haste nor use excessive ruthlessness against the people. What is done must be corresponds to higher truth. A revolution not founded on inner truth will come to a grief. For in the end, the people will support only what they feel in their heart to be just".
This is the meaning of the mandate of heaven.

Smell the real coffee.

16/9 or 20/9, It will not happen.

If I'm one of the MP, why should I join a government with a very, very small majority? 1 or 2 i think.

Its a weak government in the first place.
And what will they get? something better from those already in PR? Tough luck!!

Might as well stay put in the government with a comfortable majority.

Isn't this so true????

Care for some hot starbuck's?
