He keeps falling, this Ansari...

When he fell the first time, his spin was that the BN government did not do its job in helping with basic infrastructure on the islands of Batu Sapi.

But, then PKR’s candidate for the P185 Batu Sapi parliamentary seat Ansari Abdullah fell yet AGAIN the second time yestarday at 3.45 p.m. Now, how will he spin that?

Funny thing was the platform, gangplank and walkway at the villages did not give way when locals as well as BN campaigners used it umpteen times daily. So, what’s with this Ansari guy?

Could his falling into the sea be a portentious sign of the shape of things to come for not only the PKR candidate in Batu Sapi, but also Sabah state?

Last Wednesday Ansari, his campaign manager Oting Enchi and an NTV&7 broadcast journalist were unceremoniously dunked into the sea when a wooden bridge gave way.

“Never underestimate such omens,” so said folks living in the area.

Maybe it is true, as for centuries, they have lived off the islands and the seas in these area and through all those time their culture had tightly embraced the real world and that of the spirits and fairies. They know better, I suppose.

Today’s mishap happened when Ansari and his entourage, which included the Menteri Besar of Selangor Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim were in the midst of their house to house campaign rounds at Kampung Gas.
