Malaysia: Parley now before it’s too late to tackle economic crisis

The Malaysian mainstream media and Malaysiakini are too pre-occupied with petty politics.

I say us normal people should demand for real life stories of the people, for the people.

Have you heard that a kid at school vomited blood suddenly in class recently? Apparently, this kid was left with biscuits for his breakfast and lunch everyday. His parents rush to work everyday and later back to kiddo with dinner. This child is now fighting for his young life in hospital cos the poor child’s stomach decided to protest from the daily assault of acidic erosion. (Amazing isn’t it, how the stomach just doggedly do its job to grind and grind regardless of any input?)

This story is real. This story is now playing in Selangor.

This story is not in your mainstream newspapers nor Malaysiakini.com

With daily bad news and low confidence looking on the economic horizon, our stupid politicians are still playing ‘wayang kulit’ to up each other’s ante to grab as much power as possible for themselves.

After Permatang Pauh, Kuala Terengganu, we can expect more energy and money to be spent in possible Perak by-elections.

Sadly, nobody in Malaysia politics has the sensibility to put a stop to all this time wasters! No analysts have whack both Barisan and Pakatan to come to their senses in this time of economic troubles. Political analysts seem too busy fanning up bushfires to help produce more Barisan and Pakatan B-grade dramas.

Maybe I shouldn’t scold the political analysts. In business, it is poor use of resource to waste our politicians hard honed talents of squabbling, demanding each other to resign, back-stabbing each other and name calling.

Meanwhile, leaders all over the world are cracking their heads to solve economic contraction and are even trying to close ranks to tackle economic woes for their country.

In Malaysia, we have idiot BN and PR politicians on rakyat’s payroll spending their time and energy to get their opponents to cross over and party hopping.

I proclaim and demand PARLEY now!

In case our dense Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat representatives are too giddy from power wrestling to even recognise what does ‘parley‘ means:

“Parley (parli or parlei) is a discussion or conference, especially one between enemies over terms of a truce or other matters. The root of the word parley is parlée, which is from the French verb parler “to speak”; specifically the conjugation parlez “you(pl) speak”, whether as imperative or indicative.”

If those silly Pirates of the Carribean can practice parley, there’s no reason for silly Politicians of Malaysian not to.

I demand hero politicians from Barisan and Pakatan having the courage and to stand together to work on way forward for this country in this uncharted times!

If nothing happening soon, it will be time again for the Rakyat to source for new politicians who will ensure no more kiddo stomachs go hungry in coming hard times.
