Perak: A Coup if You can call it

It is shameful what is happening in Perak today.

Please READ up to date account on Drs Khalil Idham Lim blog.

I can summarise as; the main Opposition ie BN assemblymen staged a coup, remove the current sitting speaker, and install their own speaker. Then install their own people as government. Plainclothes police personnel were used. They might as well stage a coup, like in Fiji.

One thing is sure, Perakians would not tolerate this, regardless of their political leaning. UMNO and BN popularity among Malays is at all time low. BN would not win people's heart if this is what they are doing to hold on to power.

The only right thing to do is to go back to the people, hold another statewide elections, get a fresh mandate.

At this rate, I am not very hopeful that the High Court would rule in favour of Nizar's on Monday. But we all know that if the judges are impartial, they should rule in favour of Nizar.

BN is their own worse enemy. They keep committing mistakes after another.
