Yes!, I agree we should stop blogging at least for the next 48 hours as a show of protest to the appalling state of affairs we are witnessing every day, a nation in a state of chaos.
Of course I don't expect the government and the oppositions to give a damn what we bloggers say or do.For Anwar Ibrahim it's a crusade against a regime that had treated him badly and had found the only way to grab power is to use full force of the demagogue, which has, someway, brought him considerable success.His demagogic approach appeals to the rabble.
It's troubling and heart-rending to see how our politicians had taken politics to the gutter and the nation down the tube.The governed were helpless while the governance embroiled in multitude of scandals is wavering. A government lay siege to an equally appalling opposition who cares not whether the nation is wrecked as long as one man unbending craze for power goes unhindered.
This nation is in crisis.The spiralling costs of living,rising inflation and an economy that soon will face the toughest period of its entire history will, left unchecked, drag the nation down faster than one could imagine. Rome was not built in one day, so was the economy of this nation.
We have a government more pre-occupied with having to defend itself against the onslaught of criticism and rendering impetuous responses without the oracle of wisdom.The opacity of its policies had been the cause of its implosion.
The crisis of confidence has reached its peak. As much as those in UMNO refused to admit or believe the seriousness of the situation and much to their own detriment, it would not be impertinent on my part to say, if there were to be a general elections today, UMNO and the BN would not only be badly mauled, the chance of a wipe out is not too remote a possibility.
Although I am not a great fan of Anwar Ibrahim, this is the bitter truth prevailing at this moment.
For now the government is safe, the rebel MPs from BN that Anwar claims he has is just a tactic of psychological warfare he uses to weaken the resolve of those easily tempted by his promises.
It's better late than never and the situation can still be salvaged.It's time Pak Lah and his crew to take stock, ignore Anwar Ibrahim and his Pakatan Rakyat, shape up and get down to serious work to restore confidence in him, the economy and his government.
We can't continue to have a government lay in siege and in limbo.
