At last, a legit reason for not posting for a while! I'm in hospital again with back problems! Disc is prolapsed again, but on the right side this time.
BKT SELAMBAU & BKT GANTANG
Actually got my injury when accompanying Ayah campaigning at Bkt Gantang. Glad it didn't hit me earlier - the night before was important for me as I gave my first election campaign ceramah at Bkt Selambau.
During my walk-about I kind of sensed we'd lose in both places. We left the electorate for the UMNO General Assembly and Pak Lah's late departure from the PM' post left very little time to convince the electorate with change.
Put that together with Samy Vellu's presence in Bkt Selambau, Pakatan's Race-Based politics in Bkt Gantang & KJ being UMNO Youth Chief, it's no wonder that the same sections of the electorate rejected BN.
But at least the more mature Malay electorate is coming back to BN.
NAJIB'S NEW CABINET
The overall reaction to DS Najib's new cabinet has been positive. Some of the surprise choices are inspired, such as appointing the straight arrow Dato' Husni Hanadzalah as 2nd Finance Minister.
I'm also happy with some blatant exclusions from the cabinet, such as Dato' Zin 'Badak', who messed up the decision on raising road tolls recently.
In any case, not sure if I can blog again before discharge. Need to focus on my health first. If all's well, I'll be blogging from home next week!
