BN component parties which suffered catastrophic losses in the recent general election have vowed to pick up the pieces and reorganise their respective party. Some said they will have more time to do so since they are not elected. Others continue to sulk and blame voters for their poor choice.
In NST today, Gerakan Deputy Youth Chief Lim Si Pin said "I hope they see what type of MP they have voted in. I doubt he can serve the people well." He was the Gerakan candidate whom PKR Tian Chua defeated in the polls.
I am not sure what they meant by reorganisation. Does it mean shifting the office furniture around? Organise more activities for its members? Or changing the party's logo?
What I am pretty sure is a need for a mindset change. If politicians leading these parties are not willing to accept that the society has moved on, political dynamics are no longer the same and that the same old BN method is no longer workable, then I do not think their effort will bring back any supporters.
The first thing these leaders should do is to apologize to their members, supporters and voters for being so self-absorbed and self-centred in the recent general election. Denial will only not take them anywhere. You can change the plate but the stale food will remain stale.
Walk the talk but let the brain do the motion first. Mindset shift is needed and not rearranging the furniture. Worse, stop mocking the intelligence of voters. You may not like the consequence.
