The consitutional crisis in Perak is like an on-going school classroom for ordinary folks, Perak or National citizens. The difference is an ordinary classroom has a teacher; the Perak crisis has none, since the Federal Court has more or less acted irresponsibly by refereeing a game it shouldn't. Shafiee Abdullah tried to be the teacher but his lessons are weird.
The Issue that the Perak DUN cannot be complete without the person of the Sultan has been played up by Shafiee Abdullah at the Press Club forum/dialogue in Ipoh, very irresponsibly, as a member of Malaysia's court, or Justice of the Peace, being a registered practitioner. He had stated that the DUN is incomplete without the Sultan: this is correct.
For the sake of discussion, the Sultan for this purpose really is not a PERSON, like a DUN member, but more of a symbol and in plain terms, accurately more like, a "stamp", a "chop", expressions not intended to denigrade but attempt to understand and discern.
The existence of the Sultan in the State system is a kind of social contract. What gets more odd is that the King is supposed to be the "Essence" of the DUN. And you know, "Essence" is NOT like that Brands Essence of Chicken, a corruption of the chicken.
The joke about social contracts is that there is no "Enforcer". The thing nearest to an enforcer is a General Election. Unless you're an idiot and you expect God to come down in a Chariot to settle the score. You can't sms God to come down and enforce the social contract , because He will "laugh" at you. (Well, not really - it's just that you'll feel quite ridiculous, sensing that you heard him!) He'll say that Malaysians are hopeless because, we haven't got it yet! Don't bother to read the legalese on this. You might not find any!
The Constitution, State or National is supposed to be perfect. The only thing is that perfection is a heavenly notion and remains where it should be - in the "Aether" !
Maybe God did sms some Malaysians but more appear to realize that we don't expect God to come down! Possibly, Shafee Abdullah thought he did get that sms. He just won't let you see it!
