Many post mortem reports have appeared since Pakatan Rakyat failure to wrest away Bagan Pinang from Umno. While Umno try to capitalize on this win and spin it in every way possible to hoodwink the people. Bagan Pinang was a do-or-die battle for Umno. That explains the overwhelming presence of machinery in Bagan Pinang: Money, instant noodles and thugs aside from all other controlled agencies. This is easily the most violent by-election that I have witnessed so far. Above all that, there was this presence of unseen force influencing the outcome of this by-election. Betting syndicate? Underworld? Illuminati? Whatever it is, they operated away from the scene. The only visible clue we can ever get close is to study the body language of the voters especially the Chinese voters. Lack of excitement and feeling uneasy seemed to be the tell tale sign in most of them. Credit should also be given to Isa regardless of his evil doings while at helm as menteri besar. He obviously knows how to rob the state and generously take care of his grassroots and the right people. This fact remains: Isa won and Pakatan Rakyat lost. For the vanguished, no more blame game. Search the fault within yourselves and find out what went wrong this time. It is easy to push the blame on Umno's mighty machinery. For me, this machinery has been a constant factor in all by-elections. Postal votes? Perhaps but why this big majority? I am not going to cry over spilt milk. We went in there and gave our best shot at those odds stacked against us. We failed this time but that does not represent the end of us. For as long as we represent and uphold the truth, you will never see the end of us. That's all for now and see all of you in another battlefield soon.
