This morning I managed to get around at my usual stalking grounds on the net, and found a few things which I think worth mentioning.
The first is Annie's piece about the current political situation in Gelang Patah. I think what makes most people worry for Ghani is that the contrast between his approach to that of the DAP is so glaring, that it looks very bad for him. I admit that I am a bit miffed that I am tied with things here in the office that I have not been able to observe first hand the circus in Gelang Patah.
However, a friend who is also working in the back office of Ghani's campaign told me over the phone that all the BN components in Gelang Patah are working in the background to make sure Ghani's campaign reach as many people as possible. She has not been getting much front-line action either, but has been getting snippets of information from visiting people who are actively campaigning in various place in South Johor.
She has surmised that for the moment, the toughest fight for BN are in Kluang, Tebrau and Gelang Patah. She also said Segamat, Bakri, Muar, Batu Pahat and Pulai are also tough for BN, but are less worrying than the first three. When I told her that DAP are claiming that Pakatan can win at least 12 parliamentary seats, she laughed out right, and couldn't stop her giggles while answering rather diplomatically that "Well, yes, that is possible I suppose, if Allah Wills it".
Next thing I read was Bee Kim's Old Friend piece and this one about Ghani. Kind of getting to know a little bit about Ghani through the eyes of Bee Kim.
I also caught SatD's latest piece about why Lim Kit Siang was ISA'ed way back then.
OK, I've got to rush and make my pitch. But to be sure, I will be in Gelang Patah on May 5th to cast my choice.
