COMMENT | Yesterday, I was riding in a Grab car heading to an appointment in the morning when the driver, an elderly Malay gentleman, started a conversation with me. Typical of any Grab or taxi driver, the topic of conversation that he chose to talk about was politics.

Coincidentally, the day was May 9, the exact one-year anniversary of Pakatan Harapan taking over the government from BN. The gentleman asked me what I thought about the performance of Harapan so far, compared to the old administration.

I decided to entertain and indulge him because I could see that the conversation, if proven to be interesting, could actually lead to me having something to write about for my column here at Malaysiakini...
