“Some of you are beginning to mutter aloud that maybe it is better that we stick to the devil that we know then the devil that we don’t. After all these politicians are all alike"
In my posting ‘Bloggers …steady lah’ I need to clarify the above statement. That is a quote from one of the blogs that I read. It is not a statement from me – so I should have made that clear. Politicians are NOT all alike. Let me repeat that.
POLTICIANS ARE NOT ALL ALIKE.
Why would anyone want to be a politician? They are required to work 24/7. No holidays. The responsibilities is immense. Your exposure on a personal and public level is relentless. What satisfaction you get from your work is just for the moment – fleeting – because there are always people to meet, problems to be solved. The pressure on your family is cruel…and if you do it the right way your pay is nothing much to write home about! Unless you are a Politician in Singapore where they are better paid.
And all these sacrifices for what? It is because there are men who are determined to make a difference – to try and improve the Rakyats quality of life and to make our country a better place to live in. For that they are prepared to risk their reputation, their family’s happiness, their personal health – everything – because they believe that their work can make a difference to our lives. I think that is why Kit Siang, Tok Guru and Anwar are Politicians. So brothers and sisters cut them some slack
