I remember distinctly Mohd Khir Toyo promising "zero opposition" in Selangor prior to the so called political tsumi, the 12th Malaysian General Election 2008. I am pretty sure he meant all BN (Barisan) candidates will be elected and all non-BN candidates will lose. Well, Khir Toyo almost got his "zero opposition" for Selangor, for Selangor had lots of non-BN candidates elected and we almost got a no BN successful candidates for Selangor. Khir Toyo lost his grip on Selangor and now have become the opposition in a state which he formerly controlled.
Now I read in Malaysiakini, the real newspaper a report by Syed Jaymal Zahiid and Fathi Aris Omar dated April 28, 2008 filed at 5:13pm that Mohd Khir Toyo said UMNO has lost touch with reality (and by assumption, only he is in touch with reality). He claimed that he knew well all along before the election that the BN (Barisan Nasional) would suffer heavy losses in the March 8 polls.
Now tell me, if he really knew that BN would lose heavily in the March 8 election, then how come we hear him shouting for zero opposition for Selangor prior to the election?
Does Mohd Khir Toyo really knows what he is talking about? If you ask me, I think he should take the advice of that infamous former "defacto Law Minister" Nazri to keep his mouth shut rather than speaking nonsense and making a fool of himself. Perhaps Mohd Khir Toyo would do better to keep his mouth shut while he gets his patients in his dental practice to open their wide open. That would make more sense (and sens or cents).
