Storm Clouds Gather in the South

‘The Rocket’ has predicted Pakatan Rakyat to win up to fifteen parliamentary seats with an equal fighting chance to capture eight more in the southern belt of Peninsular Malaysia in the next general election.

It forecasts PR to win nine out of 26 parliamentary seats in Johore: Segamat, Labis, Ledang, Muar, Batu Pahat, Kluang, Gelang Patah and Kulai as well as Bakri, which is currently under DAP. Even ex-UMNO blogger Mohd Ariff has claimed that Johor Menteri Besar Abdul Ghani Othman had apparently told his UMNO people that some nine federal and 16 state seats could fall in the next election.

In Negeri Sembilan, the DAP mouthpiece’s latest September edition forecasts PR to retain Rasah, Seremban and Telok Kemang and win Rembau.

In Malacca, the sentiment is that Pakatan can retain its sole parliamentary seat in Kota Melaka via DAP and add one more through PKR in Bukit Katil.

Right here in Selangor, UMNO deputy president Muhyiddin Yassin is convinced BN can score big in the state.

This is going to be a real skirmish like never before! PR is training their guns on Johore and BN is doing the same for Selangor. Still, I would like to keep the faith that PR will wrest control over the whole of the west coast – from Perlis to Johore! As Adidas believes, Nothing is Impossible.

Last evening I was at the 3rd Mile Square in Old Klang Road for the Money & You Toastmasters meeting where I was enthralled by the good speeches and evaluations. I particularly love the speeches by Amy Lim and Ainsley Tan. I will award this meeting a score of an 8 out of a 10. Wow!
