UMNO have admitted they are behind the chartered flights to bring 'voters' in from East Malaysia.
They have attempted to say there is nothing wrong in it.
But, stunning new footage, posted just hours before polling booths open, now indicates that some of those 'voters' are actually Nepalese plantation workers with foreign passports.
The footage, shot by activists, concerns a hundred workers, who arrived from Sabah into KL on a Malindo flight into in the dead of night, May 3rd.
Intriguingly the MAS Wings charters that had originally been scheduled to carry the 'voters' from Sabah had turned out to be completely empty, according to the clean election campaigner Haris Ibrahim of ABU (Anything But UMNO).
His team were on standby to record the arrivals. Could it be that our earlier expose had caused a change of plans?
If so, we question why? Because, if all was above board, as BN claimed, why would these passengers have suddenly been pulled off the planes?
However, the activists were soon aware of a separate Malindo flight, which arrived just after, packed with foreign workers from Sabah (Malindo is 51% owned by the Defence Ministry, which Najib Razak was till recently the Minister of).
These workers were piled into vans with the rubber industry RISDA logo emblazoned on them.
RISDA has already been integral to BN's vote-catching plans.
The organisation admitted just a few days ago in Kuching that they had been 'directed' to pay rubber plantation workers an election incentive of RM500, as a boost to the party's attempts to hold on to key seats in Sarawak – payments that had to be distributed before election day, May 5th!
The activists filmed the Sabah workers queueing to get their passports back from the organisers and each being handed a mysterious packet at the same time.

Perhaps an oxymoron here - Planned Messiness - may be appropriate.
It's known the EC lacks impartiality, and has been long suspected of being an UMNO tool. Already voters have shown that the so-called indelible ink could be rubbed off with grass, fortifying the voters suspicion that the ink has along been a joke and not meant to deter repetitive voting by (other camp's) "some".

We recently did a sentiment analysis with JamiQ on the upcoming Malaysia General Election and try to figure out what the internet thinks about the parties and leaders in this upcoming election. Using technology to monitor the internet sentiment analysis is a wonderful tool which analyze posting on the internet to figure out their influence and also sentiment.
(You can also check out our other posting on interesting ways to follow the Malaysia General Election)
With this, we can figure out how positive or negative the people feel about a particular topic and hopefully make a prediction on the results of the 13th Malaysia General Election.
According to wikipedia

Diharapkan "Banglasia" atau warga asing lain di Malaysia tidak layak untuk mengundi pada pagi ini...
"Bukan Bnaglasia atau warga asing lain yang menentukan halatuju negara untuk 5 tahun selepas ini, tetapi kita semua rakyat Malaysia"

Truth be told, politics does not affect my livelihood, I will still get by. Truth be told, I could have stayed on in Australia and be gone from Malaysia more than 20 years ago. But its my backyard. I could be drawing a good salary with good career prospects somewhere else ... but when I read Sydney Morning Herald, South China Morning Post of Singapore's Straits Times ... I don't feel as if I am reading about things or people that mattered to me. There is a disconnect that I cannot explain.
It is not so grand a sacrifice on my part to be back in Malaysia, its my backyard. Why should I care if the politicians grabbed billions from the country's resources? Why should I care, when the bulk of people do not?
If you look at the manifestos from both sides, they are pretty similar, its not an economic policy issue, it is something a whole lot bigger than that.
I cannot just shake my head when I see grave injustice being meted out to others just because they are "in their way". I cannot just shake my head when I sense the judiciary is not truly independent and may just be an extension of the political powers to be. These may not still affect me directly but its affects my fellow neighbours. I think we all deserve something better than that.
While there is positive discrimination, I cannot understand why the poor are still poor. I wish for a truly caring government and society that represents what each and every Malaysian's heart in all matters. Bring up our poor collectively.

Bersih's co-chairman Ambiga Sreenevasan says a just-released video of foreigners suspected to have been flown in to vote in tomorrow's polls shows that there is "real basis" for such allegations. The video, said to be taken early on Friday morning outside KLIA, showed six vans ― two in the livery of Risda, the federal rubber smallholders agency.They were shown preparing to transport Nepalese nationals, who had just arrived on a Malindo Air flight, to oil palm plantations in the peninsula.
If true, and Ambiga says there is some basis to it, then this is a real threat to Malaysian democracy and the right of the Malaysian people to determine their own future.
This shithead policeman is frightened of flowers
Some 16,000 multi-coloured mini flags were first planted inside the Jalan Tempinis roundabout in Lucky Garden in Kuala Lumpur on April 14. Since then, the movement has spread to nearby suburbs such as Damansara Heights, Sri Hartamas and even to other states like Perak and even further afield to Barcelona and London.
Urban middle-class Malaysians, ordinary people, decided to plant these flags by the roadside and at roundabouts, as an art installation which they call the Malaysian Spring.
But this fascist-sounding cop, who sits near the top of Bukit Aman, says that pretty little flags at roadsides will make masses of people come together for a violent revolution like the "Arab Spring".
