|The Taiping Malays are not that stupid after all! Your time is up mo!|
We spent three days going around Taiping we spoke to village headmen, religious leaders and generally Malays at coffee shops and anywhere we can find talking to them about the coming general elections.
Well, our finding is this, the Malays almost 40% of voters in Taiping will not vote for DAP, which they considered now to be anti-Malays, anti-Monarchy, anto-Sultan and they are still sore that under previous PKR Mentri Besar, many Chinese, not Malays, were given a TOL lease land for 999 years!!!!!
"Kita tak tahu macam mana ini boleh jadi," said Pak Wahab, not his real name of course. Basically he said how could this happened.
Malays villagers said in the absence of Umno candidate, they will most definitely vote for other BN candidate, but never, and never said Pak Wahab the Malays will vote for the opposition DAP.
"Termasuk lak calun pembangkang lain (Including other opposition candidates)," he said.
Well, unlike previous visit to Taiping during the last general elections when half Chinese, Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin, a short-lived mentri besarof Perak in 2008, the people of Taiping are more accommodating now when talking about Najib Razak and the BN government.
"Memang China DAP Perak ni memang biadap dan kurang ajar (Its true these DAP Chinese from Perak are both uncouth and not well brought up). Undi kita kali ni akan lain sikit (our voting will be slightly different this time, tengok lah," said Pak Wahab.
It appears as compared to previous elections, Malays will now come out in droves this time to kicked out Nga Kor Ming, I have no problem with that!
