It was business as usual

WE have heard it before. After the debacle of the 2008 elections when Barisan Nasional lost its two-thirds majority and four additional states, the then Deputy Prime Minister ominously warned Umno to “change or perish”.

Of course, we all did not hold our breath and Barisan went on to do even worse in the 2013 general election. For the first time ever, they lost the popular vote although they still returned to power, but with a reduced majority.
