  • Get ready for the ;dance; of the ;turncoats' traitors'. In all fairness Bersatu should get the green light of the other three major parties in the government before they accept someone as members. With money these losers' can buy support..Out of disgust many Malays will join DAP, the only party that sticks to principles.

  • Yes, I agree... as a coalition partner, Bersatu should get the views and endorsements from the 3 other parties before accepting the dumno MPs as normal members only..
