Yes, where the f*ck were they when an important Bill such as the Supply Bill 2010 was tabled in parliament on December 14?
You wanted our votes, you wanted our support, indeed you promised us change and reform. We did just that on March 8, 2008. The very least you could do was to show your face in Parliament during the debate and voting for the Supply Bill 2010 (Budget 2010).
This is the reason why we should not blindly vote for Pakatan Rakyat. As much as we may want change and would like to see Barisan Nasional ousted, Pakatan Rakyat has to earn our votes, not expect to get it without any effort. I want to start by demanding an apology from those 20 Pakatan Rakyat Parliamentarians who are earning their salary without working for it. Then, and only then, will we consider whether they are worthy of our votes.

Fright for BN as Budget passed by 66-63 votes
It was fright night for the BN as the national Budget was passed by a wafer-thin 66-63 majority in Parliament last night.
That’s 48 per cent attendance for the BN MPs and a 77 per cent turnout for the Pakatan reps.
Najib and Ong Tee Keat reportedly had to rush to Parliament to vote – and this was for their “1Malaysia Prosperity for All” Budget.
The Malaysian Insider has the story here (Najib’s budget passed by a narrow 66-63 vote).
It just goes to show how much importance these missing MPs place in Parliament when they can be absent during such a crucial debate and vote.
