To those uninitiated... Ismail Safian is BN's candidate for P59 Bukit Gantang. He will be facing Pakatan's Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin in the by election. I cannot help but put the full interview up here... gleaned from themalaysianinsider.com.
Lets explore his entire interview...
Q: You will focus on the Chinese areas first before the Malay areas?
Ismail: Ya, ya. A part of my strategy.
Gosh... which idiot will have a strategy to alienate a particular area?
Q: How is the feedback from the community?
Ismail: It’s good, it’s good. It’s been a good response. They’ve been very supportive and I hope it’ll translate into votes on polling day.
Q: What is your main message to voters?
Ismail: Okay, I want to help them, help solve the problems they face, if I can be chosen to be their MP because I’m the government candidate. Certainly I’d be able to help them.
Q: What’s the main issue for non-Malay voters that they’ve told you?
Ismail: Okay, in 2004, they voted for the government, for Barisan Nasional. But in 2008, they shifted and voted for Pakatan Rakyat. But I think they’ve realised they’ve not gotten any returns from that so I think they will return to support the Barisan Nasional. Okay, okay.
This guy.. thinks that 2004 - BN, 2008 - PAS... by-election BN... what kind of mentality is this? And.. he want to help solve problems because??? He is a government candidate.. macamla.. others cannot help solve problem... and what makes you think he can solve problems? When he cannot even understand a simple question and give a simple answer? Orang tanya lain.. dia jawab lain pulak... What's the main issue for non-Malay voters that they have told you? He replied.. I think they realized.. maybe he is too chicken to say that they did not tell him anything or rather ask him to fly kite...
Q: How confident do you feel?
Ismail: I’m confident.
Q: You’re facing a former mentri besar?
Ismail: It’s okay. I’m a local. I was born and grew up here. I’ve got many friends, many acquaintances. I think it’s an advantage.
Q: Do you consider yourself the underdog?
Ismail: It’s okay, it’s okay. It’s good.
And he is not even answering the question.... do you consider yourself an underdog? and he says its OKAY..... and to the question of HOW confident.. he gave an answer to a question that asked him IS HE confident... and to question that You are facing a Menteri Besar.. he says its okay coz he is local... baffling.. baffling...
Q: There have been claims you’re too dependent on Barisan leaders.
Ismail: We work together as a team so there’s nothing wrong for me to walk with MCA, Gerakan to get closer to the Chinese community. That’s the spirit we have in Barisan Nasional. They are Pakatan Rakyat. They don’t have that unity in Pakatan Rakyat. They only exist during elections.
Q: What’s the biggest challenge in going down on the campaign trail? The weather?
Ismail: Ya, ya. The weather is a big problem. Daytime, rain. And also sometimes at night, it’s raining. But it’s okay, it’s okay. I have no problem.
Q: Any changes in your campaigning schedule because of it?
Ismail: Of course there’ll be some changes in the strategy just to fit with the weather.
This guy.... ish.. ish.. ish... the weather???? What the FUCK? Country's economy is in tatters.. jobs are being LOST.. and his biggest challenge is the weather????
If people of Bukit Gantang vote this man in... you can be assured of only ONE THING... "suffering". Coz this fler doesn't even know how to express his ideas if he has any that is.. let alone listen to your grouses? He cannot even understand a question and give a direct answer for goodness sake! He is CLUELESS... but I suggest you guys to subscribe to Malaysiakini and surf for the interview with Nizar.
So, people of Bukit Gantang... is this the man, Ismail Safian going to be your choice MP? Read the interview and laugh till you weep!
