After 61 years, Malaysia finally managed a successful democratic change. Whether or not the democratic change meets our expectation, no one should take the credit away from the Malaysian people.
steadyaku47 comment: My dear Senator (designate) Rafizi Ramli. I hope you do not mind me addressing you as Senator (designate). These days anyone from the PM (designate) to Senators (designate) are having their say even before reaching their designated destination….so saya pon kena illuminate this unfortunate situation before it can contaminate our mates who are supporting PH in government.
“Unfortunately, the euphoria seems to derail the focus of the PH administration a bit. The deflation – from the euphoria to disillusionment – can be severe, if not appropriately managed. There are signs that the euphoria has gone somewhat sour”.
Really Senator (designate) Rafizi? Which part of the euphoria is “sour” to you? The part where the Minister of Finance is a Chinese from DAP and not you or someone from PKR? The part where the Minister of Defence is Mat Sabu and not someone from PKR? Or is it the part where PKR, the largest member of the PH coalition, has not got what YOU think is it’s share of Minister’s post in Tun Dr Mahathir’s administration? Are you not grateful that a member of PKR, Azmin Ali is the Minister of Economic Affairs? Opps I forgot that Azmin Ali is not in Invoke or in Istana Segambut’s camp. Well Senator (designate) …I think the most “sour” part of the euphoria is the fact that Azizah, one of your most ardent supporter within PKR and a member of the Segambut Mob, has NOT performed up to our expectation…in fact she sucks at being DPM.
And this is another comment re Azizah that is relevant :
Plunging approval rating
I continue to follow the pulse on the ground through surveys and analytical profiling, a discipline I maintain from the campaign towards GE14…..I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but someone must bell the cat. The approval rating of the Federal Government since PH took over in May 2018 has been plunging, rather rapidly. In June 2018, when asked to rate Tun Mahathir’s performance as the Prime Minister, 72% Malaysians approved his performance. The Chinese rated him highest at 87% approval, followed by the Indians at 84%. Even the Malay respondents gave him a high 66% approval rating (given that PH did poorly with Malay voters during GE14). In a similar survey conducted two weeks ago, Tun Mahathir’s approval rating as the Prime Minister has plunged to 53%. There is a consistent ~20% drop across all races – Malays (from 66% to 45%), Chinese (from 87% to 65%) and Indians (from 84% to 64%).
Plunging approval rating? Following the pulse on the ground through survey and analytical profiling? Bullshit! Senator (designate)Rafizi, how is it that through these surveys and analytical profiling, you were unable to forecast your defeat at the hands of Azmin for the deputy post in PKR party’s election recently? As for those surveys that INVOKE has been making to give RR the ammunitions to hantam PH and Tun Mahathir…let my classmate ZBMZ, tell you what he thinks of surveys
“Validity of findings of any survey undertaken is dependent on a number of factors – such as, type of survey, numbers involved in survey sampling, types of questionnaires in the survey undertaken, profile of respondents and other pertinent criteria! Any comparison to be made between past survey and new survey undertake must be comparable; in that past survey profile has comparable similarities to render the outcomes of the 2 survey done at 2 different time are truly comparable! Comparability is reliable when the circumstances involving the 2 surveys undertaken are liken to comparing big apple with big apple and not big apple with small apple. If there can be access to the hard copies of the 2 survey (written) questionnaires and the outcomes only then it is fair for anyone to make or pass objective judgment!”
Somebody must bell the cat? The cat being Tun Mahathir? Why? Because “Tun Mahathir’s approval rating as the Prime Minister has plunged to 53%” ? Or because Anwar Ibrahim is in a hurry to be PM and appoint RR as a Senator for his entry into Cabinet as….as what? Minister of Finance? Huh….over LGE dead body, mine and many many other Malaysians who will be there to stop you. This comment by Sharifuddin says it all….
We need to demonstrate seriousness in making life better for the ordinary Malaysians, not to be dragged by endless cloak-and-dagger political manoeuvres of the old Malaysia. I urge the PH leadership to take stock of the developments and urgently re-focus our efforts. And it must begin with the PH Presidential Council sending a clear signal that we will stop the cloak-and-dagger orchestration of more UMNO MPs crossing over.
Come on lah RR…”endless cloak and dagger political manoeuvres of the old Malaysia”. Senator (designate) are you talking about PH or PKR? Anwar’s “use by date” expired the day he left Sungai Buloh. Yours, Senator (designate) Rafizi may still have some hope of an extension past 2018 if you understand the realities of politics post Anwar Ibrahim. Not many now have time for INVOKE…much less time for you. Let not Tun Mahathir think it is time he puts you in your place. We all remember what Tun did to your President when push comes to shove. You, Mr Senator Designate, will simply be nothing more to Tun than a car part in a Kanchil factory.
Ok lah..I have spent enough time giving my comments on this Senator (designate) “REMINDERS TO PH”. Got better things to do now…now have to hantam the guy who promised to make him a senator!
