Corruption is corruption, there are no two ways about it. You cannot minimise the crime by hiding it under some other labels such as 'money politics'. Neither can you make it disappear by simply declaring that the offince "is not an offence under the law". Everybody knows there are to sets of law in this country. One for UMNO and BN members/cronies and another for the rest of us.
So congrats to UMNO and BN for Bagan Pinang. They people have spoken. And the general consensus is, corruption is okay for the folks of Bagan Pinang. 5000+ majority, wow they really love money down there. Hope you all will enjoy the fruits of your labour, here on earth and the hereafter. If I were you, I'd be really ashamed to look at my children in their eyes and say I voted a corrupt criminal into power.
As for PAS and PR supporters, don't be too downhearted. 7 wins out of 9 is not that bad. Bagan Pinang is their stronghold anyway. It's a setback, not a disaster. Time to regroup and do some soul searching on our weaknesses.
