Goodbye to Samy

The recently concluded general election has seen some bigwigs fall, one of whom was the Works Minister, Samy Vellu together with most of his MIC leaders, among them, Sothinathan and Komala Devi. Samy lost his Sungai Siput seat which he had held since 1974, to Dr. Michael Jeyakumar. Kayveas, President of the People's Progressive Party (PPP), a component party of the Barisan Nasional too was knocked out in the election which some had equated to a tsunami. has come out with a video clip on Samy: Goodbye Sam.

By the way, "shiock" is the Hokkien dialect word for "ecstatic". "ISA" refers to the Internal Security Act under which a person can be detained up to two years without trial. One of the HINDRAF leaders won a seat while in detention. And "4D" refers to lottery tickets.
