You lose some you lose some more?

Arsenal lost to birmingham the other day in the carling cup final. We had some chances, their keeper made some excellent saves and in the end it was a massive fuckup between koscielny and the keeper that presented martins the chance to win the final with just 2 minutes of normal time to go.

Tough luck. In any other occasion i would say its just the carling cup. The mickey mouse of cups. But having won nothing in the last how many years, a win this time would have done a lot for the confidence of the team. But alas twas not meant to be.

But we're still in 3 other competions though. Potentially more heartbreak in the cards? I hope not. Was it last season or the season before last when we were in 4 competitions, lost 1 and promptly dropped out of the remaining others.

Hopefully the team has learnt from the past and will do better this time. Go the gunners!!!

Brand new year, same old shit?

2017 is here. After that very eventful 2016 one can't help but hope that the new year brings about more positive things. It doesn't look all that good though.
Will we get an election this year? I'd seriously consider it if I was the pm. I mean yes he has go a lot going for him but what he doesn't have at the moment is a credible United opposition to give him a run for his money. So yeah. Calling for an early election may be something that can be to his favour.
Will stupid acts by stupid people stop making then famous? Nope. Early on we saw a bunch of kids scaling the IPOH sign for shits and giggles. Posted everything on social media. Last I heard they've already come in to give statements to the fuzz. So the moral of the story is if you wanna do stupid things don't blab on social media with your smiling mug there for everyone to see.

What's in it for me.

Looking at how the campaign for the Sarawak state election is going you would think that is a matter of who can promise the most who would probably win it. Difference being one party boasts a track record and the other one, well depends on which other one that is doesn't. 
I especially love it how these promises are all presented as conditional upon winning the election. Doesn't reek of bribery at all eh? Not buying votes. Yeah right. 
You would think that given how Selangor and Penang are run, they would want to see it emulated in Sarawak? I guess loyalty goes a long way over there. 
As it is there are a couple of outstanding issues that Sarawak can use as a bargaining chip in trying to force the federal government to start giving them more.
Oil royalties, more federal projects etc. and what better way to do it than to vote for the opposition? 
If the opposition wins, then Sarawakians can send a message to the federal gov't that hey if you don't give us what we want than t…
