When 08 is an embarassment...

This past week has been truly an interesting week in Malaysian politics.

Certainly, the developments in Perak is most interesting.

I had expected that the best and right thing was for a Snap Elections in Perak. All expectations and hopes were in the hands of His HIghness.

Sadly, Tuanku chose to allow BN to rule the state, for whatever reasons best known to him alone.

I respect his decision though I feel sad. It is indeed a step backwards in the pursuit of changes. More so when all this is in Perak, the State of my birth. I carry 08 in my ID number. :-(
