Most would be highly repulsive and against it.Those who voted them felt betrayed and cheated.Some politicians glorify it.The law have nothing against it.
Like the monkeys in the forest it is not unlawful to swing from one tree to another. Only the law of morality speaks bad of it but than morality is a much abused word.
Welcome to the world of frogs, toads, scumbags and HYPOCRITES.
Defection was a 'highly glorified' word soon after the March 2008 Elections. Anwar Ibrahim was intensely promoting and glorifying defections to attract the scumbags from BN to cross over to Pakatan.There were some tense moments for BN when the situation became uncomfortably volatile and the risk of losing power was closing in. The panicky BN have to send some 30 of its MPs overseas to escape the evil clutches of Anwar Ibrahim. The purported study tour overseas was a smokescreen to hide the BN's true fear of Anwar's bluff of a coup on 16 September 2008. Amazingly, other than Karpal Singh, none of the Pakatan leaders and supporters protested and demonstrated against Anwar's evil attempt to wrest power from a democratically elected government. As many have suspected it was Anwar's biggest bluff. It shows that those who knows him doesn't trust him.No scumbags from BN took up the offer.
If the plot to topple the BN had been successful I bet my bottom dollar there would be explosion of celebrations and rejoicing of Anwar's master stroke, demolishing the evil regime.The hypocritical world of Pakatan would have chuckled at morality and chucked it into the dustbin of history and the pro-Anwar writers, journalists, bloggers and supporters would have a field day singing in praise of him.The accolades would have been nothing less than thunderous.The BN's eulogy and the satanic verses would have been read together with hellish rendering.
From the recent episode in Perak one can only conclude that scumbags politicians are everywhere and Pakatan were not short of it either.At least in BN they don't pretend to be good and spotless, they have accepted whatever accusations of wrongdoings that had been thrown at them. In Pakatan the scumbags are still well camouflaged in their lairs but are slowly coming out of the woodwork.The 2 PKR and 1 DAP assemblymen were just the tip of the iceberg. There would be more.
The biggest scumbag and one that should be given a trophy would be none other than the Wizard of Bota, Nasaruddin Hashim who should go down in the Guinness Book of World Records as the shortest hop made by a political frog.
In Kedah the assemblyman for Bukit Selambau V. Arumugam has tendered his resignation from the Exco and vanished.However, he has not resigned his assemblyman seat. It doesn't take much imagination to guess where he is going to resurface. This man not only exudes immorality but extreme stupidity with his aberrant behaviour.He married a young woman, almost 20 years younger than him, without divorcing his first wife and flaunted her at official functions.No one in Pakatan, including those of high moral standard, complained or reported him until it was exposed publicly by others with vested interest.In latest development Anwar said he has seen the letter of resignation.Could it be another undated pre-signed letter of resignation or the real one? We have to wait and see.
Morally spotless politician is not, a dime a dozen, most are tainted somehow or other. What happened in America and the West with the recent financial meltdown showed the West are not that squeaky clean either, as many of us would have thought.They have done worse damage to the global finance and economy.
Do not get me wrong I am not espousing corruptions and immoral behaviour, I am just trying to get the key fits in the correct lock and the real perspective of the hypocrisy of the whole issue.
The BN are full of them and they make no secret of it, they are corrupt, arrogance, thieves, robbers and say what you like, they may not be the best the country ever had, but they have also brought progress to the nation that many refused to give credit for .They could have done better if there were less corruptions and abuses of power.
I have no objection for politicians crossing the floor on principle or disagreement on policies but it becomes morally wrong and demeaning when it's for money and position.Unfortunately, in this country those who did it's did it for the wrong reason.
Most of us wanted a change of government, but must we do it with so much hatred and labour under so much self-delusion?
"We have two kinds of morality side by side: one which we preach but do not practice and another which we practice but seldom preach". ~Bertrand Russell

?We must go back to the people and get a fresh mandate,? opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim said earlier.
?The BN are trying to form the state government by hook or by crook ? more by crook,? he told AFP.
The man beaten at his own game.
