I have yet to read the article about YB J in Utusan, but DAP is taking a fictional short story too seriously. After filing a lawsuit for RM30M against Utusan for the article about YB Teresa's demand to lower down the Azan volume, now she's suing the author of the infamous YB J article for RM100M. She is set to become the best fund raiser in the history of DAP politics.

PKR and PAS are in a bind because the actions make them appear to look lightweight. Their silence or lack of support indicate their reluctance to close in ranks with their partner. It is only a matter of time before their coalition collapses (yet again). My guess is that PAS will refocus their effort to enhance Kelantan's revenue after being advised by DYM Tuanku Ismail Petra. Kelantan's deficit grew from RM155 to RM 326M last year.

Meanwhile back in UMNO and Barisan Nasional, delegates are urged to rejuvenate the party by giving way to young blood. Seniors especially those with exposed skeletons from the big closet should just retire and support the new leadership from the back office. Tun Musa Hitam agrees with this.

DSAI is still adamant to sway 30 odd members of parliament to Pakatan Rakyat's side. However, by getting monumental support from Sabah, the composition of Muslim MPs would be less than 60%, which makes partner PAS uncomfortable and willing to withdraw from the coalition if such a scenario happens. So the defection date should not be on Deepavali or Hari Raya Qorban, he should just wait for the next general election. A lot of voters I know voted against Barisan Nasional not to cast them out but to reduce the majority, hence the results of Parliamentary seats compared to State. Voters didn't vote for Pakatan to stage a defection.

What's next...
