“The four stages of acceptance: i) This is worthless nonsense. ii) This is an interesting, but perverse, point of view. iii) This is true, but quite unimportant. iv) I always said so.”

COMMENT Readers of Malaysiakini , friends, friends on the opposite side of the political divide, and the usual trolls have been emailing, asking me about my opinion on the recent proposal of a grand alliance to oust Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak from his office in Putrajaya.
Terms like political opportunism and “desperate allies” are bandied about.
I would just like to remind everyone that politicians always make for desperate allies and that the biggest corruption scandal this country has witnessed, the further erosion of our limited rights, as well as the compromised security and judicial apparatuses, trumps political opportunism any day of the week and twice on Sundays.
