At what price would you be tempted to sell your soul to the devil? 1 million no !, 5 million no !,10 million no ! What about a whopping RM65 million ?
Which right thinking man will not accept RM65 million just to cross the floor over to the other side of the political fence.
DAP assemblyman Sivakumar alleged he has been offered up to RM65 million and round-the-clock police protection. He didn't specify who made the offer and how the offer was made. That's a lot of money for one miserable assemblyman.
Anyway, even if it is true where would you keep the money because no bank will accept such huge sums without tangible explanation on where the money came from. It would also be a mind-boggling exercise to move RM65 million cash from one bank to another without catching the attention of Bank Negara if the money is in Malaysia, unless whoever made the offer has huge amount of slush fund stashed overseas.
Another DAP assemblyman A.Sivasubramaniam claimed he was offered RM5 million by BN leaders if he crosses over to BN.Since he knows the identity of the BN leaders why didn't he lodge a report to the police giving the names of those who offered to buy him.If it is true, wouldn't it be nice to catch some BN leaders with their pants down.
Whether the orgiastic offer of bribery are true, fabricated, figment of a wild imagination or the work of pranksters only the two assemblymen would know.It seemed only the Indian assemblymen in DAP were offered the windfall and only in Perak.
It does make some sense because the BN needed only two seats to grab the state government from BR (Barisan Rakyat). However, would they pay RM65 million to get a state government? Why not spend the money to get 8 more parliamentarians to get two-thirds majority in Parliament. With two-thirds they can change the law or introduce new law to whack the states in opposition control.
It is without any doubt that Sivakumar and Sivasubramaniam are men of the highest integrity and should be emulated by other politicians.
Those from Sabah have some lessons to learn from these two gentlemen, especially the "Enam Jahanam" who have been giving Pak Lah hell of a time.
Does every man has a price ? I believe at least 99.999 percent has. It would be looking for a needle in a haystack to get the .001 percent.
