Najib has taken a calculated risk in making this landmark decision.
First he went against Dr M advise and second he has further dented the sagging morale in BN.
So now the question is are we going to see Dr M's gun trained on his blue eyed boy?. To bite the hand that feeds you is very very dangerous ,just ask Badawi, he is the right person to advice, as he had first hand experince.
The morale of BN has been on the rocks since the 2008 elections, now with this decision , there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel, and I am sure many in the BN's group will be asking why?.
Yes the reason given is logical, wasting money, don't want to play political games with PR....ect
Why not be truthful instead?....WE CANNOT WIN, SO WE WON'T CONTEST!
I guess the truth hurts!
as G Marx once said:
"politics is the art of looking for trouble , finding it everywhere, diagnosing it
incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies...." hope this is not the case..cheers
