Malaysian Circus Association

To those of you who are not Malaysian or have no idea what the strip is all about here is the run down: A large political party in Malaysia recently has a dispute between its chairman and its deputy.

To cut a long story short; chairman fires deputy, deputy fights back. They held an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) to let the party delegates decide their fate because... this is suppose to be a democratic party, so to speak.

Turns out shockingly if they accept the voting result both of them will be out of power, however that pales in comparison as on the next day both men shook hands on uneasy truce, called it a day and turned their backs on the EGM result.

All the promises and talks they mentioned about "their fate on the hands of delegates", "uphold the party ruling", "in the party's best interest" before the voting all gone with the wind.

So much for democracy.
