With reference to the letter by KMK entitled Pak Lah, Dr M and Ali Baba's caves
, I cannot entirely agree with his statement that 'your vote counts'.
I don't know about KMK, but I don't think my vote counts.
The idea that in a democracy the electorate gets to choose their government is not always true. At least, not when you're asked to choose between monkeys and donkeys.
All these years, we have elected monkeys to look after the banana plantation.
They not only ate all the bananas they wanted but even assumed that we, the electorate, had given them the mandate to do so.
Come the next election, I'll try voting for the donkeys. The question is: do donkeys eat bananas?
