NOW YOU SEE, NOW YOU DON'T!. This is the most interesting quote that a friend has fondly described the nature of our politicians today. Why not...........didn't we see the disappearance and reappearance of a number of our politicians recently. One, we are told has even disappeared to Timbaktu, following the footstep of PI Bala. Another, was reported to have fallen ill, but strangely enough, even the good doctor claims that he has not seen him. The other two has yet to reappear, and even a 'man tracking radar' could not trace their whereabouts.There you you see, now you don't.

Jumping like a frog is bad enough, and now this act of 'now you see, now you don't' will require special talent, i.e. to be invisible when times are bad. It is amazing to know that our beloved politicians have acquired new talents, besides the many others that they have in their bag of tricks.

Even the former mufti of Perlis Dr. Asri Zainal Abidin had said that the action of the three assemblymen and one assemblywomen from Perak is liken to 'sikap yang tidak telus dan (tidak) jujur'. But do these people really care?

Did we not see the trickery in Perak recently, that even the royalty is so convinced. And are we to see more trickery with two more by-elections coming our way soon. Phantom voters they say is one of the most renowned trick, but it is getting too difficult to do now. Too many people are watching, and this trick is no longer fool proof.

But I suppose by now, politicians have already develop new tricks. What it is, we will have to wait and see.

I am afaid this is going to be the scenario for years to come because some of our politicians do not have strong values coupled with the failure of the voters to choose the right candidate to represent them.

The voters in future must think carefully whom they want to vote in order to avoid been played out by these unscrupulous politicians.

The voters themselves must set its own standards by rejecting cash handouts by politicians during election time.Do not allow our dignity and integrity be bought and sold at the whim and fancy of these politicians.
