How to know when an election is coming? Well just listen to the teachers! The kopitiam visited by many teachers has ben abuzz with rumors that the General Election will be held around August. Several teachers from a school selected as a polling center have whispered that they are REQUIRED to attend a meting at the end of July, where presumably they will be briefed on the coming election. It will be held before Merdeka, so speculation is rife that it will be in mid August, as close to Merdeka as possible. After all who can deny that Merdeka is Barisan Nasional and voting for Barisan Nasional means voting for Merdeka. Ingenious! Well who said teachers are useless, they are the number one gossip makers. Thank you to all my teachers.
