PKR on the hand has enticed hundreds of UMNO members. No firm information is apparent in the jumble. Polling is on Sunday 11.

While the election battle heated up, some friends out in Seremban today appear to be have been engrossed at the sight of a crocodile in the midst of calmness and serenity at the Lake Garden. While back at Teluk Kemang it sounded like a smackdown.
Malaysiakini has some numbers on the cross-overs:
