Well, Lita... this is PRECISEL:Y why so many of us were working so hard to PREVENT the ascension of Naif Ton Rasa to the PM's post. It was a grave mistake on our part to BELIEVE there might be a tiny shred of decency, courage & some empathy towards public sentiment left within the ranks of the Malay rulers. They could easily have risen to the occasion & broken their traditional ties with Umno, opting to serve the rakyat instead. Alas, since April 3rd, it has become clear that we the people will have to reclaim justice & freedom through our own determination & perseverance.
