|Aspan, Kit Siang and Sakmongkol
I know both Aspan and Sakmongkol personally, and virtually. When I read the tweets about Sak joining DAP from Jakarta yesterday, I wrote: "Why would DAP want to (accept)?". What I meant was: Look, we know Sak's writings, he is very critical of UMNO and Najib. Sometimes he's right, sometimes he's wrong but most times, he is more critical - and makes more sense - than even Kit Siang. Can DAP tolerate someone like him?
In any case, whatever they choose to do, it's their right as citizens of this great democracy. I think we can respect that.
