CrystalBall: CHANGE MUST MEAN CHANGE OR CHANGED WILL BE THE ORDER
So there has been announcements and appointments. The cabinet has been announced. The UMNO supreme council appointees and office bearers have been appointed. Next, logically should come the "changes" in the GLCs, other government institutions and especially the CIVIL SERVICE.
The concept of 1Malaysia has been announced.
People are now evaluating pronouncements, appointments and announcements with FOLLOW-UPs and actual RESULTS. People now wait - anxiously. Of course it cannot get worse than the Abdullah era but that is no consolation.
Of course everyone cannot be pleased with the appointments. But the Rakyat have voiced and are voicing. They are displeased with some things. Some find that "change" may not necessary mean "change". Differences of opinion. But does UMNO recognise which opinions matter? I have known UMNO to underestimate those outside its fold for too long.
It is just sad for UMNO if it still lives in its little world and uses its own yardstick, especially if the yardstick has jagged edges. I know that there is still a tendency for UMNO to think of itself as indestructible, a thought that should be completely alien to Muslims as only Allah is eternal.
People wait and I see fog on the horizon. Why？
Let us see what May has to unfold. It is just a feeling.
