Where do you want to go?

The headlines in The Star paper today have truly capture the essence of two contrasting styles of leadership: one seems to be running away from the political stand-off while the other is facing the political stand-off head-on.Let us look at the political scene at our own backyard and see what the politicians are up to.

Barisan reps asked to hand in passports for study trip
Backbenchers Club chairman Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing said the trip was the brainchild of the club but rejected suggestions that it was organized because of the Sept 16 claim.
(Another coincidence again?)

“This is the best time for the trip although it is the fasting month because after that, Hari Raya celebrations begin and Parliament will meet again.
(How can it be the best time when the muslims are fasting? Don't they have any respect for their muslim colleagues?)

It is understood that the trip, said to take place between Sept 7 and Sept 19, will be open to all MPs, especially those whose constituencies have agricultural concerns, and not just MPs from Sabah and Sarawak, said to be targets of PKR.

(Which constituencies do not have agricultural concerns?
This is a cunning way to identify those MPs who want to jump ship as for those who could not go or do not want to go will be identified and construed as wanting to do so.)

Deputy Backbenchers Club chairman Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin also confirmed there was such a trip to explore agricultural technology.

The overseas study trip organised for Barisan Nasional MPs was initiated by the Backbenchers Club and has nothing to do with the notion that they may defect to the Opposition on Sept 16, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.(read here)

(Too many coincidences will become a lie!)

Stressing that he did not organize the trip, he added that the trip between Sept 9 and Sept 16 should not be connected with PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's threat that the Government would be toppled by Sept 16.(read hre)

He said the MPs would have to bear their own expenses but declined to say how much the trip would cost. Some MPs brought along their spouses.

Do you believe what he said?

Do you believe what they all said?

so silly this claim that it is a study trip like we all 5 year olds meh..please lah.
i think most of the MPs are not going anyway. next thing you know, some stupid fella will give another silly reason for failure of such a proposed trip...maybe along the lines of.."oh it's peak tourist season down under and flights are full etc...etc..."

Chinese call this "Dead chicken holding onto the ricepot lid". Everything is so obvious, even the blind can see! Stop acting in such a childish way. If MPs want to defect, they can do it anytime, not just on 916!
