You may have read this invitation to migrate and ...
... and you may have been angered by Zahid Hamidi's direct style. I must say, it is not very Malay of Zahid to be so undiplomatic. But let's face it: all he's saying is, hey, cut the crap, accept defeat gracefully and let all of us move on. Most of us have got work to do.

But if you do intend to migrate because you think we shouldn't be adopting the first-past-the-post system and you insist Anwar Ibrahim be made the Prime Minister through the back door by us all adopting the "popular votes" system, make sure you don't migrate to Australia, the UK, Canada or New Zealand because these countries have the same system as ours, all adopted from Great Britain. The ruling parties in these countries get even less in terms of popular votes than BN.
People migrate for many reasons. I know quite a number of people from Malaysia who are British and American citizens who still call Malaysia "tanahair". But if you are migrating because you think this country sucks and is a racist nation, then make sure you don't come back. According to a journalist who migrated years ago, too many of you decided to return to Malaysia after realizing that it's not all honky dory in Australia or England or wherever it was that you thought would be a better home.
p.s. Me, I want to migrate to Sabah or Sarawak.
