Dr Bakri Musa sent me an e-mail late yesterday congratulating me on the Malay Mail CEO appointment. He has not read my posting here but I thank him for his confidence, nonetheless.
Attached to his e-mail is his latest article The Lesson from Perak (which he hasn't posted on his blog yet, but which you can read h e r e). He may sound a little let down by Raja Nazrin in his posting but in his mail Bakri says he harbours the hope that the Perak Regent will "change our monarchy for the better".
A slightly different take from socio-political blogger A Voice* here, who said DAP and PKR (but not PAS?) had resorted to tyranny because they were outmanouvred and ill-prepared for the moment of truth.
p.s. One of the pictures from Perak's Day of Shame that tell a thousand words, a favorite of OutSyed the Box, who writes: "Democracy ruled the day in Perak. Any DUN who wanted to shout at the top of his voice got his chance. YB Loke even did it while standing atop a table."
* A Voice was one of the bloggers who were accredited to cover the assembly, an unprecedented move by the state government and a simple acknowledgement of the role of bloggers alongside other media practitioners.
