Saw this comment in the Malaysian Insider on the issue of Khir Toyo’s expensive mansion:

“Pakatan should continue to expose scandals like these. It will certainly help them in any elections. BN would be wise to sacrifice this toyo fler to MACC or they can forget about coming back to Selangor.”

I apologize for the idiocy of my fellow Malaysian. Some people here still think that the role of the Opposition is to expose the personal scandals of members in the ruling Government. Such negative politics never achieved anything, except perhaps replace shit with more shit.

For the uninitiated, read the following:
