COMMENT Here’s what I expect the planned Bersih 4 rally to achieve: Nothing.
Let’s say the best-case scenario happens: Malaysians, fed up with Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s blatant corruption, turn out in droves and a million people rally in the streets of Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu, and Kuching.
They demonstrate against the government for two days from Aug 29 to 30, and then after that they all go home.
Surely this will force the government to change, right? Surely this will shame Najib into resigning for robbing the country blind, right?
Oh, wait. No, it won’t, because Najib has no shame and couldn’t care less if people know he’s corrupt, as long as they can’t do anything about it...
