Let's say-la, you are a BN person party-ing on a luxury sailboat, off the shores of Trengganu, being entertained by Al Jarreau, hobnobbing with the PM, his family, his
3 days ago, that would have been one of those unanswerable questions. How-la to choose?
but Lulu, following the news on the appointment of Lee Kah Choon of Gerakan to Penang Development Corporation Invest-Penang, Lulu thinks the answer is obvious.
Most of the BN persons on board would not care and continue to party. If something happens to the drowning kids, well.... that's one less DAP and PKR member respectively.
Other with some form of conscience but having also followed the Lee Kah Choon saga, would look at the PM and ask him permission. The PM will give them a lot of fatherly dilly-dally advice and at the end of it, tell them to consult their respective party leaders. The respective party leaders, having been taichi-ed the problem would take a while to deliberate on the problem at hand. The two pakai salah t-shirt kids would by then have met their maker.
Sad isn't it, that the BN cannot see beyond the party and look towards nation building.
Party first, if the state needs help and we can offer it, too bad.
Party first. Rather the state sink, die, drown, bankrupt and the rakyat hidup merana [not that they are, but...] than we, o holy ones a class above these lowly opposition, defile our hands in supporting them.
Its not that the government in Penang is desperate for the BN's help. But they do recognise that there are some within BN who do have the expertise, and putting aside political differences, would be great in helping build the state.
And its not that all people in the BN are bad and evil. They do have some gems [some, not many. maybe a few. but memang ada] And Lim Guan Eng and his team are mature enough to recognise this.
Unfortunately, one cant say the same for the BN.
