& when the outspoken lone ranger, the only one currently with the courage to raise issues that matter, is unceremoniously dumped, again my gut feeling is that
whether it will go the same way as it's cousin in penang & be sidelined into irrelevance (or worse, oblivion) is left to be seen.
we all know gut feelings sometimes come true & i don't believe i am the only one in sack-cloth today.
PS. perhaps this phrase was specifically coined for politics : nice guys finish last.
