The Coke versus Pepsi debate
Salleh Said Keruak
The Coke versus Pepsi debate was first started by the political activists who argued that what's the point of coming out to vote if the choices are merely either Coke or Pepsi? PPBM replied that even if it is Coke versus Pepsi you can still vote for Pepsi since it may taste better than Coke.
Pakatan seems to have missed the point. When someone says 'Coke versus Pepsi' it means there is no difference between the two. In other words, Pakatan is not better than Barisan, as they are trying to suggest.
Voters are saying why bother to vote if both coalitions are the same? If Pakatan is merely Barisan 2.0 then might as well leave Barisan in power. Pakatan does not seem to get that message the voters are sending them.
