Pakatan has been derailed enough by leaders who indulge in chest-thumping and meaningless rhetoric, and who propose outlandish and expensive ideas. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, November 20, 2019.

PAKATAN Harapan was truly trounced in Saturday’s Tanjung Piai by-election, and Barisan Nasional more than made up lost ground.

While PH’s loss was expected, the margin of BN’s victory was much bigger than almost anyone had predicted. Even the most seasoned politicians, including Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, did not see it coming.

  • Sorry, but looking at the immediate machinations post Tg Piau, viz Azmin & co, you know the country is not out the woods yet. And Mahathir appears to be just too happy to allow such manoeuvring to continue - because I think he has lost touch with what it means to be overwhelmingly rejected by the electorate. If you want Msia Baru, then Politik lama has to be eradicated. What did that guy say? Oh yeah, drain the swamp.
