'The assault took place at a police station. Did the police just stand there and watch? Will the home minister be inviting the attackers to his office to try and seek an explanation from them?'
Paul Warren: All in a day's work to get a corrupt person elected. Hey, they operate under different standards - Umno's standards. And it is all quite acceptable.
And you can well bet there are a lot of voters in Bagan Pinang who are going to, by their votes, say these corrupt people are perfectly acceptable. So what you going to say about that?
DohDoh: The assault took place at a police station. Did the police just stand there and watch like at the cow-head demonstration?
Will the home minister be inviting the attackers to his office to try and seek an explanation from the attackers, like how he invited the cow-head demonstrators ?
The police, if they are really neutral, must go all out to investigate and book the culprits for attempted murder.
Hardtail: It's only a ‘technical' assault. The prime minister will encourage it for sure.
Abu Luqman: Possible BN reactions:
1) The injuries were self-inflicted
2) The attacker was provoked (like Rahim Noor)
3) Incident was staged by PAS to gain sympathy votes
4) Attacker was temporarily insane
5) Police didn't react because they thought it was a film scene being recorded
6) It looks like injuries, it looks like blood but it's not blood, it's tomato sauce.
Lim Chong Leong: Umno has been engaging Mat Rempit in their campaigning and street protests against the Pakatan Rakyat. This incident is the clear evidence.
And that is why no action is ever taken by the police against Mat Rempit for their street violence. This is Khairy Jamaluddin's gang of Mat Rempit in action from Rembau.
Khor Joo Hong: Let's see if someone would allege that these injuries might be ‘self-inflicted'.
Fairplay: What? First they nominate a morally-tainted politician to be their candidate, then their party workers act like hooligans by slashing PAS workers?
I thought PAS was the underdog in this by-election. Why is BN behaving like so-desperate politicians?
Geronimo: Forget about the Election Commission. This is a do-or-die mission for Umno and they must win at all costs.
The impartiality of the EC was already in question right from the beginning so it is not surprising when they went ahead using the present electoral roll.
If PAS were to lose, then let it lose with the head held up high and they will still be cheered.
Wira: PAS, you know who those 253 postal voters are and in which polling stations they are voting. Get your polling agent to make a note whether those voters vote a second time.
Publish your findings on the Internet with names and MyKad numbers.
Samasama: The DPM was speaking nonsense. If PAS knew of its imminent loss at Bagan Pinang, then it would be obvious that any postponement will not make any difference to the outcome of the election.
Probably a better option for PAS is to concede rather than to seek postponement.
