Is the Cabinet “firm and good?”. Some say yes and some say no and some say wait and see. And that in itself, in the insane times that we are now living in, gives us some comfort to dream and perchance to hope that better times may lay ahead. For sure in these next few days if not weeks, scholarly and academic thesis and an outpouring of opinions, and debates will follow these cabinet appointments as each and every one of us will have our say on Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s Cabinet …but the deed is done, save for the post of DPM. That seat will surely be held in abeyance until either Najib or Zahid are cleared of all the charges that they are each facing in court. A little bird whispered to me that the husband of that once most powerful woman in Malaysia would be the one missing out on the DPM’s seat. The other contender for the throne seems to be the more favored of the two. Hearsay or not, only time will tell. Oh well, Najib…you coulda been a contender but greed got the better of you! Yes Najib, you could have been somebody instead of a bum!
Now that the deed is done let us sit back and organized ourselves into the “Third Force” or maybe just be “The Force” that will keep these bastards in Parliament honest. I have no particular preference for what “Force” I become but you guys need to give some thought to what will be needed to be done in the run-up to the next PRU. That is if we are to have the next PRU in the time frame we expect it to take place. Everything is up in the air…everything is possible and maybe, the things we expect to happen may not happen. Only time we tell. For now, I am going to have my breakfast…oast and a glass of water and my vitamins. Once again Selamat Pagi Malaysia and may the Force be with you!
