OK guys, I got this from OutSyed The Box, and he requested that we spread the words, so I am spreading the words.
I hate doing cut & paste, so please go to Tuan Syed's place to have a look at how the popular votes are broken down by states.
I knew that Pakatan lost the popular vote in Johor, but I wasn't motivated to actually analyse it for the whole country as I simply have other more pressing things to do, such as a long overdue holiday, putting together a new wardrobe, and nursing a recurring health problem.
Besides, now that the election is over, and we are supposed to have a break from politics, although I realise now that the Opposition types take their political activities seriously and have no intention to allow things to die down.
I am convinced that these people consider politics as a full-time career choice, and some of those college drop-outs actually never intended to complete their studies as a diploma would mark the end of their career as celebrated "student activists".
That was the course taken by that Hishamuddin Rais fellow who ran off to Britain or somewhere, and that is also the course taken by that would-be teacher whatever his name is.
I mean, seriously, even if he continues and completes his studies, can you imagine any school hiring him as a teacher, unless it is a school that trains anarchists, lawbreakers, demonstrators, agitators and Opposition lawyers?
That fellow needs to spend some solitary time in a quiet place where he has the opportunity to exercise his obviously under-utilised grey matter on something more useful like reflecting on his actions and the direction his life is taking.
