There is a feeling of hopelessness among our non-UMNO cadres. It is like walking on a travelator - in the opposite direction. You are working hard, putting one foot in front of the other but you are going nowhere. In fact you just can't keep up, you are even going backwards.
For every grand gesture by the PM, there is an almost Newtonian equal reaction to nulify the effect of the original action. For every 8atu Caves, there is a Beng Hock or for every change in fiscal policy, there is a Rais hare brained idea to bring us down to Earth.
