Taking some time off from reading the wonderful Norwegian Wood, which turns out to be quite a love novel, I would like to tlak about the headline of the week.

Uncle Jeff joins DAP

Everybody in the blogging world knows that.
Everybody who reads newspaper in Malaysia knows that.
Subsequently, everybody in BN knows that, I smell trouble for them.
I think those boys from the 3rd or 4th floor are smelling smoke and they are rushing for the fire extinguisher.

If you ask me who I would vote for during the next election, XXX or Jeff Ooi, my answer is Uncle Jeff.

At least he lets me know his political thinking and how he intends to tackle political issues. Unlike the incumbent, they have the power of money on their side, Jeff has instilled that certain trust among his readers. Love him or hate him, you gotta praise his guts for taking matters head on.

The timing of this is perfect. Certainly it would set the government back if they were planning the General Election before National Day. Jeff's in the hot seat now and it would not be wise to rush things, agree (3rd/4th floor boys)? Unless you are willing to sacrifice like a seat to the opposition. Not too much harm? Think again.

Until then let's see how things unfold. I've just seen some news flying around in The Star a few days ago about the rulers of the country having to abuse their powers to detain people at their pleasure. Another constitutional crisis started by UMNO? It was a quick update on The Star but I couldn't find the same news on the paper the same day, conspiracy?

Update me if you have seen that news or heard anything like that.

p.s. Kai Yan n Kelwin, Good to be back.

Welcome back!! :-) Ahhh...I hate politics, and you know that. But recently I can't help myself but to blog/rant about it. I guess it's not a bad thing that Jeff is taking up this challenge. I wish him all the best.

There was a question addressed to him earlier on, whether him being a blogger comes first, or politician. (He answered Malaysian). As for me, I'll look up at him as a blogger. Blogger more "approachable". :-)

Heheh... good that he's in the real arena, however, for whichever area he may contest, he may need to go down to the street to meet them in person as not many read or write blogs...

I wonder which area he will be contending for, he's from Subang neh! :D

How are you doing, anyway?

Boss Lepton said...

kelwin: No idea yet, DAP said they are going to look into the options

kaiyan: I don't think he will have less time blogging. Maybe it just means less frequent update.

jason: I'm doing fine. Jobless but fine, erm.... which area dunno yet
