Certain segments of Malay activists held the view that DAP and MCA play opposite roles, but are in cahoot to take care of Chinese interest.
Well, why not? Why are the Malay political parties not doing so? Why should their political rivalry compromised on Malay and Islam's interest? How could they allow themselves to get influenced by non-Malays and non-Muslims agenda?
Be that as it may. The episode between DAP and MCA on Tunku Abdul Rahman University College may not necessarily point to that cooperation.
Tunku Abdul Rahman University College is MCA's contribution to Chinese education irrespective of political leaning. However, DAP has become more "Malay" to politicise funding to TAR UC in their quest to seize control.

The incorrigible retired army brig general, Dato Arshad Raji spoke in support of Tan Sri Tommy Thomas's decision to withdrew the appeal against Rafizi Ramli's BAFIA case.
When it takes the joke of opposition social media to speak for Tommy, it means he is in the wrong. His excuse that he of not being told is not good enough.
More so, it is revealed that he was to withdraw the appeal and reprimand the officer upon being told by EC Chairman.
Art Harun has since denied. Yeah, sure...
Tommy is being openly questioned. Given time, he could be facing the brunt of the law.

Who would have guess that Dato Seri Anifah Aman, the younger of the influential and powerful Aman brothers controlling Sabah politics, would lose his Kimanis seat?
Dubbed as the best Foreign Minister post-Tun Ghazali Shafie, had he not come from Sabah, Anifah would have been a potential PM.
With more than 5,000 majority for GE13, his majority was reduced to a mere 500 majority at the last GE14 and the seat taken away on mere legal technicality.
Prior to GE14, something strange was already happening.

Doubtful NST would. If they do, it will be in the 4th or 5th page with font size 5.
Remember last Monday posting about mainstream media on desperate high gear spinning on the court proceeding involving Dato Najib and Dato Ahmad Zahid Hamidi?
Well, they are at it again on Zahid's case.
When it was revealed in court that his family went on RM1.3 million shopping on overseas over 2 years, all the mainstream and online media giving it a headline, NST particularly.
A PPBM yoko and claiming to be its Cybertrooper Chief even gave a list of the places.
However, in court yesterday's, it was revealed that the credit card payment for the shopping was made using cheque not signed by Zahid, but stamped signatory.
Will MSM give coverage, no less than an equal frontpage coverage?

|Beyond lovers' quarrel ...|
Over tea yesterday, news broke of PKR youth leader seek no confidence vote against Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
The basis was abuse of power by disciplinary board to take the extreme action of sacking senior MPP leader Zakaria Abdul Hamid, aligned to Dato Seri Azmin Ali on only suspicion of graft. MACC did the unusual to formally inform PKR leadership of graft investigation on the MPP leaders.
Subsequently, the central commitee made a decision to reinstate Zakaria and another youth leader with two third members voted in support of Azmin.
Following the decision, Azmin demanded apology from Anwar which he refused. Azmin has upped his move to plan for a parallel congress on the same day as PKR is holding its annual congress from 5th to 8th December, almost same time as UMNO Annual General Assembly from 4th to 7th.
Its a slight change to the original plan to boycot the congress.

An extract of this blog's November 1st article entitled "Tanjong Piai by-election is a test for DAP" was republished by Ktemoc Konsider.
It was mentioned that "DAP members intend to vote against PH and teach Lim Guan Eng a lesson."
That formed the basis for this blogger's view for the candidate should be from MCA as to test the hypothesis and hopefully a possible turning point in Chinese voters' attitude towards BN. There have been a trend developing since DAP members' one-year displeasure of Tony Pua and overture to Guan Eng.
Ktemoc commentators did not agree. Monterball, an incorrigible blog commentator from Pak Lah's day felt MCA will win due to constant bombardment by social media critics against DAP Ministers. Another claimed DAP voters will vote against Tun Dr Mahathir. The last was upset against Muafakat Nasional.
It is a problem of being too early in expressing one's view. Dato Wee Ka Siong claimed earlier but who would take the words of a politician before an election.

As Mahathir's Trojan horse to split PKR and keep him as PM, Azmin is playing the role well. Despite the overwhelming condition, he is still holding up.
Anwar's people claimed he has at best only 5 PKR seats in Parliament for support. But, Azmin claimed he has 20. His collaborator claimed it could be 15 or 16.
On the other hand, Mahathir's trojan horse in UMNO is not doing so well.
