Malaysiakini correspondent Athi Veeranggan has this report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/86507 headlines Pakatan Leaders unperturbed by PAS-UMNO talks. Its not a cause for concern but more inclined to believe the crossover speculations were part of an elaborate plan to destabilise Pakatan and conceal Umno’s own internal problems so says DAP secretary-general and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.
Panic..? Quick responses..? Spin miesters at work again.. Suddenly Malaysia is Up for “Summer Sales” and the products are the Peoples Representatives. Anwar started with 30 will be crossing over and last weekend at Malacca he said that he will shortly be ready to announce the 4BN MPs who will join Pakatan Rakyat. It gets tastier as Anwar short of telling the government the equation he said that polls would be soon.
“The government knows that if not for these sodomy allegations, I would be on my way into parliament by now,” he told a crowd of more than 5,000 conservative Muslim supporters in Jasin, a village near the tourist town of Malacca.
“I tell you now that I will be contesting in a by-election,” That’s the first step and if there are no by- elections the equations might crop up. “How could PAS jump ship to BN and collaborate with Umno?
Obviously to you and me we say “Impossible” or “Mustahil” in Bahasa Malaysia.
Is anything impossible in MALAYSIABOLEHLAND..? M$1 Billion in development funds promised by BN to the states of Sarawak and Sabah. Pledges of support by BN MPS to PM infront of their Chief Ministers. What has Anwar got to give? Is there a deal cut for the governments of Sarawak and Sabah and their defecting MPs? Anymore explanations as the riddle gets better and the people are coming out in droves to listen to Anwar at his ceramahs and the “Fun is Not knowing”. BN is kept wondering and Anwar wants to keep to the timetable of September 16th 2008.
- 140+23(PAS)-54(Sabah 24 and Sarawak 30 )= 109
- 82-23(PAS)+54(Sabah 24 and Sarawak 30 )=113
- 109 to 113=Snap Polls
What is so significant about the date? The constitution clearly mentions that ‘Merdeka Day is Aug 31, 1957, while Sept 16, 1963 is ‘Malaysia Day’. Everything is moving so fast and Anwar is gaining too much ground. PAS were members of BN in the 1970s before an acrimonious fall-out in 1978. So is it unthinkable if Sarawak and Sabah join forces in the Pakatan Rakyat Government minus PAS? Never say Never and any equation is worth considering. Anwar keeps on hoping and hope that it doesn’t run out of him………
