Of late, the term “two thirds majority” has been tossed around so much that everyone who is anyone is dead sure it is propaganda.
Prior to the 14th general election, it was Barisan Nasional vs Pakatan Harapan, i.e., your word against mine. Pakatan Harapan had its own set of data, while Barisan Nasional had access to government data.
If both were to have claimed the possibility of winning a two thirds majority, it would have been a case of “one side convincing the rakyat that the other side was lying.”
But Pakatan Harapan never once said it would win two thirds and predicted that Barisan Nasional would either win with a razor thin margin or lose the general election altogether.
Najib’s men, on the other hand, got ‘analysts’ to paint the impression that Barisan Nasional would exceed the two thirds mark.
In the end, Barisan Nasional was proven wrong and Pakatan Harapan was proven right. But it was only after the general election that the con job was exposed.
This time, however, the con job has been exposed well before the 15th general election.
Tell me, how can Perikatan Nasional and Barisan Nasional both win the general election with two thirds majority?
But that’s the impression given by several quarters associated with Perikatan Nasional and Barisan Nasional, and both have access to government data.
Does this not tell you that their predictions are not hinged on data but propaganda?
Sure, you can argue that each side got a different team to conduct research and came up with a different set of results.
But would that not imply that government data cannot be trusted as the people running government cannot even agree on what is right and what is wrong?
This is what you call psy-war gone wrong, and it has two do with two groups of very silly politicians who are demonstrating to the people that they share the same UMNO origins and apply the same con tactics.
That is to say, it is the same old wine in two different bottles, one labelled PPBM and the other, UMNO. Essentially, it will be UMNO vs UMNO come the 15th general election, with a hint of PAS here and there.
I rest my case.
