I wonder how many members does SAPP have. I bet a majority of them are pretty ashamed of the whole vote of no confidence thing. Now there is a change of heart. Suddenly they do not want to be used as a scapegoat if anything were to go terribly wrong.
The way I could see it that the they have a very shaky foundation. Somewhat a case of mouth acting much faster than the brain. A simple joke? OR a publicity stunt? I dunno. But their MP's better butter up BN if they want to be on the prosperous side.
