Whose Calling the Shots for Reshuffle and Realignment?

Reshuffle and Realignment of Cabinet Ministers? Why not?

asarawakIts the Prerogative of the Chief Minister of Sarawak says an insider on this subject matter. This will ultimately refresh,fine tune the present set up and it will certainly give more room for the Chief Minister to manoeuvre.

Basically he will have more leeway when he uses this power vested upon him to change for the better. He could include New faces bring back Experienced Assemblyman in the fold and remove those who have not touch point with the people. 

Moreover,”It’s a new set up completely as The State Government have cut ties with the Barisan Nasional Coalition. Instead the present State Government of Sarawak will be opposition in Parliament but willing to work together with the Pakatan Government on certain issues which will affect Sarawak at large.”

The insider emphasised that the Federal Government also has also certain expectations on how we present ourselves within the context of the new Federal set up. People in Sarawak too have new expectations. The reshuffle by the Chief Minister too is also fine tuning in cooperation with the Pakatan Federal Government and make it more meaningful.

The “recent call” by the present Deputy Chief Minister of the usage of the 31Billion of State reserves to win the hearts of Sarawakians’ and ‘ensure GPS stays in power’ has indeed created an uproar and not only many Sarawakians have indeed showed their displeasure but also too many prominent State leaders.

Some leaders have chose to keep a plaster over their mouth as they are afraid of backlash and unnecessary hassle plus unkind bombardments in the social media and also from their colleagues in the coalition.

Am sure too that the Federal Pakatan Government is looking at this development full of hope and they will use this to destroy the credibility of the state into submission.

WILL THEY NOT?

We are not going to hype this issue up on “RESHUFFLE OR REALIGNMENT” but the Chief Minister on his part will know what is coming even though his plate is full. He can be pretty sure that his actions will get more support than he knows.

Afterall, he knows it better as ITS HIS PREROGATIVE but he does need to read again those statements in between the lines  below:-

Extracted are some of the words and this from UPP Secretary General George Lo,”We are appalled that a deputy chief minister should make such an irresponsible statement. With all due respect to Masing, that suggestion is ridiculous and is unworthy of any Sarawak official, much less a deputy chief minister,” 

The political message is crystal clear that something needs to be done and with the new set up UPP would want to play a big part too in order to ensure the State remains and not to fall into the hands of  Pakatan.

Could they too be looking at a Deputy Chief Minister’s post for the Chinese Community?

Surely there is certainly a big cause of concern too, amongst the State Cabinet Ministers when the Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said he was shocked by Masing’s suggestion.

He said unless the suggestion was a joke, Masing had really gone far astray in his outlook and it would not go down well with the younger and educated Sarawakians and voters.

“Honestly, I’m shocked when I read the statement today (Friday) and I’m sure all Sarawakians feel the same way too.. it is very irresponsible to even make such as suggestion, which is akin to ‘scorch earth’ policy in war whereby the retreating army would plunder and destroy farmland, water and electricity supplies before retreating, to prevent the enemy from enjoying them,” he said.

The above are only the ones extracted and certainly not many in Sarawak are willing to forgive and forget for the political blunder of words used by the DCM. Those in his party of course would defend and try to paint a different picture but it does seem that there is more than meets the eye.

Don’t tell us in 2021 in the worst case scenario, when all is done and dusted after PRN12 those within “easy reach” of the political corridors of the 22nd Floor will look back and said,” we should also have done the reshuffle or realignment” to win back the hearts of the people who have supported or have yet to support us. Why didn’t we do it?

It’s Political Perception and not only backroom statistics and facts which will win an election. Many current YBs in the State Assembly know where they stand and those who intend to stay as an assemblyman after PRN12 would wise up now and listen to the ground,service their constituencies and deliver their promises.

They will be shown the door if they do not act now and please for GOODNESS SAKE don’t say,” We did not see it coming.

The insider did mention another political quote,”We cannot change just the signboard but we also need to add or remove those who are more detrimental in their outlook for the state than doing good. In other words when we need to Paddle the Boat(state administration) in the same direction and in the right way to move forward

It’s only half time Chief Minister very much like a football game and you still got another half to go before the final result.

“Bukan lu Punya Bapa Duit lah James Masing..!!”

Oooo Haaa..Billion, Billion said the former and late Chief Minister Adenan. Did he mention anything about USING UP ALL  our State Reserves or did the former Chief Minister Taib Mahmud. 

ajamesThey all left their office leaving the state healthy economically and able to withstand any emergencies.

Does he want the current CM Abang Jo to be ‘weak and listen’ to him alone and nobody else?  

Is the call now 31 Billion to be use to misappropriate the State’s coffers for political gains and survival? If it is, it is for personal gains and personal agendas which the State administrators must clip the ear of the DCM Masing or stop him for creating more damage to the ruling coalition. 

31 Billion  It has been revealed by the DCM of all people to all Sarawakians . Wow!!! Does he need to say that to please his party members and supporters that he will fight ‘tooth and nail” to ensure that his rural constituencies are safe from attacks by the Pakatan Harapan in the next PRN12.

BUKAN LU PUNYA BAPA PUNYA DUIT LAH 

This is extracted from a local daily. ,”

According to him, the money should be spent by the Sarawak government before the next election which must be held by 2021. He feared that if the money is not spent before the Sarawak election it would be used by the new government if Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) loses power.

“When they (the new government) use the money for development they will look good in the eyes of Sarawakians but the fact is that the money does not belong to them and we worked hard to earn that money which is being kept in the reserves. We must use the money now to develop Sarawak,” he emphasised.

Aiyoyo!!! netcitizens have come out lambasting him and some even suggested that he is replaced to be a Deputy Chief Minister and let him fight his own war without the government of the day behind him.

This is a statement RM31 bln state reserves” United People’s Party (UPP) is appalled that a Deputy Chief Minister of Sarawak, namely Tan Sri Datuk Amar Dr James Jemut Masing, would suggest that Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) spends the RM31 billion state reserves ‘to win the hearts of Sarawakians’ and ‘ensure GPS stays in power’.

Its secretary-general George Lo stressed that the state reserves were savings built up over decades and were kept to ensure financial security for the future generations.

“With all due respect to Masing, that suggestion is ridiculous and is unworthy of any state official, much less a Deputy Chief Minister. The reserves belong to the people of Sarawak. They do not belong to GPS or any political party,” he said in a statement issued today.

The Malay Mail picked up the story and PBB Vice President Karim Hamzah was quick to even mention that its time to change the leader of PRS

This would also be a body blow for James Masing as he sees his days are numbered or is it?

APOLOGISE OR RESIGN
Monday 19th June, 2018.

Dear Datuk James Masing,

I have read many ludicrous comments from Sarawak YBs over the last two months but your suggestion that the State GPS Government “spend all of Sarawak’s 31 Billion Ringgit Reserves before the next State Election in 2021” for fear that “it will be used by the new government if GPS loses power”, is a prime demonstration of acute irresponsibility and arrogance.
Reserves are savings for a rainy day, only to be used in a financial emergency for the welfare of Sarawakians.

Your statement angers me and insults the people of Sarawak. How dare you think Sarawak’s reserves are for the State Govt to dispense with based on a fixed timeline and ulterior motive? Yours is a ‘scorched earth’ policy, that is to leave the next state govt with a crippled balance sheet – it’s a despicable and unacceptable intention.

There is not a single line in your statement that has any semblance of intelligence or humility. I believe you have single-handedly destroyed the last benefit of doubt accorded to the newly announced GPS State Govt. You have unwittingly exposed your dubious character to the people of Sarawak. I am deeply concerned. Your behaviour puts Sarawak’s economy and Sarawakians at risk.

Mr. Deputy Chief Minister, for want of a better term, you are now a state liability. You should apologise to Sarawakians or resign. It’s your only chance to save any remaining credibility you may have.

Sincerely Disappointed,
Alex Stamrock Wong.

IT SEEMS JAMES MASING HAS JUST BLOWN EVERYTHING OUT TO MAKE HIMSELF PUBLIC ENEMY NO.1 

Does James know that even the state governments of Selangor and Penang when they were Opposition State they too have reserves? 

PRS “Who Let the Cat out?”

To our readers and followers of this blog,we want to make one thing clear: Even though the PRESS STATEMENT was not released someone Internally did let the cat out.

We fully understand the reasons for not revealing as the statement below would have gone “OVERBOARD”but one must realise once its developed as a Press statement the Perception War in Social Media has already started.

COULD THIS BE ANOTHER #FAKENEWS or #POLITICALSPIN..??

The President of Parti Rakyat Sarawak would say for sure and correct us if we are wrong,”Someone is out to sabotage the party PRS.” He could be right though or is this a deliberate ploy.

It is not our intention to openly blame anyone or disparage those who do so. We are just merely offering our political perspective on this matter. You read and now you can have your own opinion as the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT will not charge anyone for #FAKENEWS if its not seditious nor malicious in intent.

Have a nice day!!!!

An “Inconvenient Truth”Sarawak: The Brand

Why an Inconvenient truth? An Inconvenient Truth presents in film form an illustrated talk on climate by Al Gore, aimed at alerting the public to an increasing “planetary emergency” due to global warming, and shows re-enacted incidents from his life story which influenced his concerns about environmental issues.

Sarawak’s political climate and landscape has changed ever since May 9th when the Barisan Nasional Coalition was defeated in the General Elections 14th by Pakatan Harapan registered only after the elections on the 16th May 2018. Oh Wow!!

Sarawak’s State Election is not due till May 2021. Aren’t the 4 parties strong enough to hold their own.

What’s the hurry to start a new coalition says a political analyst? 12th June the Sarawak BN4 dissolved to start GPS( Gabungan Parti Sarawak).

Branding for all the right reasons takes a lot of effort and time and the 4 parties are already well accepted in their respective strongholds.

Are they not? If they are not something is very wrong and needs to be addressed.

pbb

Am not about to curry flavour on PBB but practically everyone knows how well the party is run and they will not be perceived as OBSOLETE to their supporters. When PRS President called for a “UNIFIED PARTY” there must be a political agenda behind it. Or is the party going through another “infighting” or “house cleaning”?

That we do not want to comment here. We have said our piece and the PBB President knows he is under immense pressure and he needs to have self belief to rise above all those detractors and he doesn’t need to be arm twisted.  

Everyone has their personal agenda’s and survival and it is no different to the political parties.

PBB by virtue with over 40 seats can stand on its own and their BRAND would be well received by their supporters.

Do we need to conduct a POLL? We are not Rafizi Ramli’s INVOKE or agencies who will try to put their facts and statistics PLEASING to the EYES.

Mind you, one must also take note there is no more the Federal JASA, KEMAS,SB,Military Intelligence,Cybertroopers, Blogs with the State Political Parties to give them the reports and findings on the ground.

The CM Sarawak or the Chairman of this Sarawak Coalition knows that the previous Manifesto for the State Elections will need to be fulfilled accordingly before he calls for “MOTHER OF ALL BATTLES FOR SARAWAK”

The Inconvenient truth is also that PBB will still be able to hold their own but the 3 other parties are looking over their shoulders not knowing the people will show them the EXIT DOOR or are still very much with them. Seriously, they need to do a lot of soul-searching and find their strength and not to be over reliance on PBB.

Sarawak and the World Waits on June 12th 2018

There is so much significance on this day 12th of June 2018, Sarawak and the World will wait with “Bated Breath”.

is (3)

  1. Petroleum Development Act 1974 (PDA) Court hearing on 12th June in Putrajaya

Petronas has filed an application before the Federal Court seeking for a declaration on the Petroleum Development Act 1974 (PDA) being the law applicable for the petroleum industry in Malaysia.

PM Malaysia Tun Mahathir said,”Petronas claims the PDA gives them certain powers which now the Sarawak government also claims. So let the court decide.”

2. US President Donald Trump meets North Korean Leader on June 12th in Singapore

 

donald

Donald Trump,”It’s going be a very important meeting, the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.” Singapore’s hosting of Tuesday’s Trump-Kim summit can be seen as its contribution to world peace and shows that it is trusted by both sides, said Singapore’s Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan.

    3. Sarawak Ruling Parties will end its Association with Barisan Nasional in Kuching on June 12th

bn1

Sarawak’s political landscape will never be the same again.The 4 Sarawak Based parties in Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB0,  Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS), Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) and Progressive Democratic Party (PDP)  will convene at PBB Headquarters . The top leaders will meet up to discuss amongst others the issue of leaving the Federal Coalition of Barisan Nasional.

On May 16th President of PBB Abang Johari who is also Sarawak BN Chairman “Any move on whether PBB will leave BN or otherwise would be decided after consulting our three state-based partners in the coalition,” 

A  top SUPP source told The Star on Thursday (June 7) that party leaders will convey their decision to Sarawak Barisan chairman Datuk Amar Abang Johari Openg.
We feel that being part of the Barisan coalition now may not be conducive as the party charts its direction ahead.

“The intention to leave Barisan has been agreed among the SUPP’s top leadership.

“On June 12, SUPP will attend the state Barisan supreme council meeting, and after that, we will officially convey to Abang Johari our decision to leave the coalition.

These 3 events happening on 12th June 2018 will have far reaching effects as it not only involves Sarawak but the World. Mark it down in your calendar and be reminded of this day in years to come.

Cheers..!!

Angin Semakin Kencang,Air Hujan Semakin Naik

Kalau tidak ada tiupan angin kencang pokok tidak akan bergoyang. 

The Political temperature in Malaysia is indeed rising as everyone connected is seen scrambling to be on the RIGHT AND SAFE SIDE of the political composition. 

It’s common but a very tragic sight. This statement best describes the whole exercise,“It is said that when a ship starts sinking, rats on board have a sixth sense about what is going to happen and are the first to jump on to the nearest flotsam to save their lives.”

When this article was posted by http://syedsoutsidethebox.blogspot.com/ (fully extracted below) we wanted to share with everyone on the first time PKR hit the shores in Sarawak which was written on May 20th 2008 more than 10 years ago   

aasarawakIn Sarawak it does appear that the flood waters are rising but the ruling government is monitoring the situation and will be well advised to concentrate on people/centric programmes instead of mega projects according to the voices of many. 

The 1MDB Scandal plus the burden of GST was the death kneel to the Federal BN Government and the Pakatan Harapan capitalised on the rakyats sentiments to woo them over. 

We do not want to sound the bugle but the State Government will need to look into their elaborated development plans LRT’s, Digital Economy, Coastal Roads,Dams or concentrate on the lack of electricity,water,roads,bridges in the rural enclave where their votes count. 

If the State administration does not heed the needs and wants of Sarawakians they too will also face the wrath of the rakyat when the State election is called.

What happens next for the Sarawak coalition will determine whether they remain in power. The Flood Waters have reached the State and the Wind is blowing with Pakatan Harapan as the Federal government.

Unless if the “Pakatan coalition” cracks under pressure Sarawak will need to reinforce its fort or to re engineer its relevancy to the people.  

THE POLITICAL SITUATION ON THE PENINSULA AND ANWAR IBRAHIM’S NARROWING OPTIONS   (fully extracted below)
As a political movement the Barisan Nasional is effectively dead. 

But the components MCA, MIC, Gerakan and UMNO are not yet finished.  

Besides being political parties they are also huge business and property owners. 
 
MIC is believed to be worth about a billion in property and corporate assets and is also believed to have close to a billion Ringgit in cash.
 
MCA is believed to have much more, especially their cash holdings. 
At least two or three billion cash, (so I heard lah).  

Gerakan is not too far off.  Both MCA and Gerakan have property holdings overseas as well. These are political parties worth billions of Ringgit.  
 
So although (for the first time in history)  MIC has 100% more Parliamentary seats than MCA (2 to 1),  MCA is not dead as a business and money entity.  

Taking care of their assets alone will be enough to keep the party presidents of MIC, MCA and Gerakan busy for a long time. 
 
I think there is no need to talk about UMNO’s assets. 
The PWTC alone should be worth over a billion Ringgit.
 
Talk is right now inside UMNO there are three factions.  
Two are extremely weak and they have been betting on the wrong horse.  
The first of the two factions is Zahid Hamidi and Hishamuddin Hussein. 
The second one is Khairy Jamaluddin plus one or two more.
 
is (2)
Both these weak factions are pro Anwar Ibrahim or have no qualms working with Anwar Ibrahim.  Here Zahid Hamidi seems to be front runner ahead of Khairy Jamaluddin.

They are said to be the weakest factions because the majority of UMNO does not want them.  


The vast majority in UMNO do not want Zahid Hamidi, Hisham Onn or Khairy Jamaluddin to be their leaders. 


Both these factions are aware of this. 


Hence the order has gone out that there shall be no contests for the top posts in UMNO.  Again.


But rumour is Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah may take a shot at UMNO’s presidency again. Meaning he will be gunning for Zahid Hamidi. 


Also that Mohamed Hassan (ex MB Negeri Sembilan) wants a crack at Timbalan Presiden, to unseat Hisham Onn.

So there should be some fireworks in UMNO by end June 2018.


Anyway the third and the most powerful group inside UMNO is the group that really matters for now.  
This group is now leaderless but they share  very strong common motivations. 
This most powerful group (it is also the largest) does not like Najib,  they do not like Anwar Ibrahim, Zahid Hamidi and Khairy Jamaluddin. 


They support Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed and as more time passes their support is turning into genuine adoration for Tun Dr Mahathir.




So the BN and UMNO are politically quite dead. They are of little effect in their present condition. 

If Zahid Hamidi becomes party president  UMNO will be in the tong sampah and forgotten by the time of the next elections.


If Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah wins the presidency of UMNO, the equation will change completely. For everyone. Do read on.




Then we come to the Pakatan Harapan. The DAP, Amanah and Pribumi Bersatu are strong. United. The three parties are also very comfortable with each other.  The membership for PPBM is increasing. More people are signing up as PPBM members. 

PKR is facing some serious internal stresses. Just like UMNO, there are at least three factions inside PKR.  


The Anwar Ibrahim family plus Rafizi Ramli is one faction.  

But I believe cracks are developing even inside this faction.  

Secondly there is the Azmin Ali faction. This is a very powerful faction on account of Azmin’s good track record in managing Selangor so well over two terms.  



Here is some inside news folks. I heard that  Azmin Ali was actually offered the opportunity of being Pakatan Harapan’s candidate for Prime Minister. Not Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed.  However, quite predictably the Brader objected strongly to this suggestion.  Hence the lot fell on Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed again.



Azmin Ali has now been made Minister of Economic Affairs in the Federal Cabinet.  He is also still holding the Menteri Besar Selangor portfolio.  


This is a very special situation enjoyed by Azmin – Federal Minister as well as Menteri Besar of Selangor.  (Lim Guan Eng – do take note). 


Azmin’s deal is that he gets to appoint his own candidate to replace him as Menteri Besar of Selangor. 


This is a major slap for the Anwar Ibrahim camp who have their own candidate lined up as well.  (You can have tea with the Sultan of Selangor or you can have tea at home too.)


The other point to note about Azmin is that for the first time TWO of PKR’s Cabinet Ministers ie Azmin Ali and Zuraida something come from Azmin’s  Gombak division of PKR.   In short, Azmin Ali carries some real heavy  weight in PKR and Pakatan Harapan.  


There is a third faction in PKR but I forget who they are. Not very significant.  So there are serious stresses inside PKR which can crack up the party anytime.


And above all this is Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed.  Although Tun Dr Mahathir’s PPBM won only 12 seats in Parliament, Tun Dr Mahathir himself is worth 100 Parliamentary seats (12 + 100 = 112 which is the simple majority needed to form the government). Because without Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed, the Pakatan Harapan will just unwind.


There is no written  agreement that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed will step down after TWO years. Tun has said that he will stay as long as necessary to put things right.


Tun Dr Mahathir said that it would take at least two years for him to make things right again.  


My view is this.  The economy is already responding positively to the change in government. The Stock Market is active again. Never measure the government’s economic management by the performance of the Stock Market.  But n’theless the Stock Market is a barometer of how the economy is performing or is expected to perform. 


If Dr Mahathir can put things back together again, the GDP growth improves, unemployment goes down, the economy moves forward and the country as a whole is happy then why should the country be handed over to a lacklustre performer like Anwar Ibrahim? Surely that will be a very careless and reckless thing to do.  So I really dont know about this HAND OVER POWER IN TWO YEARS thing. 


If Anwar Ibrahim wants to be PM he also has to overcome a few prerequisites. 


First he has to win a Parliamentary seat. This means he will have to make another Kajang Move, which turned out to be a huge bungle anyway.  Also this time around there is no guarantee that Anwar can win a Parliamentary seat  in a By Election.  There are forces inside PKR who may not fully support him.  So there is no guarantee yet.


Secondly, there is no written agreement among the Pakatan Harapan that Anwar shall become the PM.  The PKR only won 49  Parliamentary seats – obviously because of Tun Dr Mahathir.  


There is no written agreement that PPBM, DAP or Amanah will support Anwar for PM.  Plus it is no great big secret that Warisan in Sabah (with eight Parliamentary seats and an entire State government)  also support Pakatan Harapan. But they do not exactly ‘support’  Anwar Ibrahim.  Which is why Anwar has not been invited for tea in Sabah yet. 


The Sarawak Chief Minister Abang Johari was recently spotted visiting Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed.  Sarawak too will support the Pakatan Harapan. That is easily another 19 Parliamentary seats.  And they do not support Anwar either.


To form the government and be the Prime Minister, you need 112 seats minimum.  This is where Anwar Ibrahim may not have the numbers to support him.


Should Anwar then do a joint venture with UMNO / BN and PAS? There is a WhatsApp message going viral since Friday that says exactly this. Part of the message says:



*Kerajaan Baru Selepas Julai 2018*


Semakin kuat desas desus pembentukan Kerajaan Perpaduan PKR + BN + PAS. 


UMNO mengadakan pemilihan 30 Jun ini dan selepas itu akan berwajah baru.



persetujuan dgn ‘kuasa yg lebih besar’ telah menetapkan jawatan spt berikut :


*PERDANA MENTERI*  : DS ANWAR IBRAHIM


*TIMBALAN PERDANA MENTERI 1 & 2* :  TG HADI AWANG dan DS ZAHID HAMIDI



Gabungan tiga parti akan bentuk 143 kerusi iaitu 47 PKR + 78 BN + 18 PAS = 143 


Untuk btk kerajaan hanya perlu 112 kerusi.


Maka jatuhlah Mahatder, Daeim dan kroni-kroninya 


Agenda licik DAP terhadap Malaysia pun akan tersungkur.


Akan ada ahli parlimen BN/PKR/PAS yg tak setuju tp diyakini cukup utk 112 kerusi.


DS Anwar, DS Zahid dan TG Haji Hadi akan bertemu di Makkah menunaikan umrah


Jelajah DS Anwar mengadap sultan melayu  hampir selesai



Gabungan tiga parti ini lebih mewakili komposisi kaum Malaysia. 

Tidak seperti PH yg diwakili 66 org YB bukan islam dan hanya 58 YB muslim.



So the thing that was predicted by that Chinese girl blogger some years ago is a possibility.  It will be UMNO + PKR + PAS. 


Well, maybe not.  It is possible that any ‘gabungan’ with UMNO and PAS may split Anwar’s own PKR party.  


Here is another piece of trivia. 


Of PKR’s 49 MPs, only 16 are Malay.  

33 of PKR’s MPs are non Malay, majority of them being Chinese.  

They may not agree to Anwar teaming up with UMNO / BN / PAS.

Even the Azmin camp will not agree to teaming up with UMNO / BN / PAS.
So it is the PKR party which may split.  

There are many obstacles or challenges before Anwar Ibrahim can make it to Prime Minister.


Ok now here is the real story.  


Before that,   to all the Anwar Ibrahim supporters, dont get too upset ok. 

Please grow up.  You must become more mature.  

If anyone wants to be PM, then everyone else, including me, has the right to scrutinise them closely. We should. 


In fact you should be thankful that there are people out there who can see, observe, understand and analyse the situation for you.  


This is about the Prime Minister and the future of our country. 

This is not about the  tingling feelings inside  your ass. 

I criticise anything or anyone who I think ought to be criticised.  


For example Ayahanda Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed has appointed Maszlee Malik as Education Minister.  But I have criticised Dr Maszlee’s jihadi credentials for Education Minister.  This is despite me being perhaps the strongest supporter of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed (except for Proton).  


Ayahanda is a great man.  

His stature is far far above any one particular critic.  
And he does not shy away from criticism.   

Of course I never call Dr Mahathir  a ‘Liwat fellow’  because he did not liwat any guy.  


So do chill ok.  

You have the freedom to criticise Dr Mahathir, me or whoever. 
I really do not care. 
Please extend the same courtesy to others. 
Can or cannot?
Can support freedom of the media or cannot?

Back to Anwar,  he is extremely disadvantaged in his education and his knowledge.  Tahu bunyi, tau warna, klin tong,  klen tong – sudah graduate kut. 


Despite almost 20 years in UMNO and the government, Anwar never achieved anything of substance for Malaysia. 


He messed up the education system and imported the failed and disastrous Muslim Brotherhood’s ideas (Ikhwan Muslimeen) into the country. Too many people in this country have become “unintelligent” because of that really stupid influence. 

Now, predictably Anwar has gone back to being a name dropper. 
In his interviews and speeches he keeps dropping names like Sun Tzu, Yusuf Qardawi, Ben Nabi, Adam Smith, etc etc.  

Anwar Ibrahim supporters,  you should tell him that this childish behaviour of name dropping is more relevant for a high school student writing essays to earn marks.  Not for a Prime Minister.  


In a recent interview on Awani (a few days ago) they asked Anwar a question about the economy.  He mentioned Adam Smith pula  !!  Apa kena mengena brader?  


Kalau nak jadi Prime Minister,  you must provide your own answers, give us your own ideas, tell us your own solutions.


For example,  how is Anwar Ibrahim going to handle the issue of the SST, which will replace the GST?  Give us some solutions, give us some suggestions, give us some new thinking.  Do you know what SST stands for?  Why should you give some solutions?  Because you are the one who wants to be Prime Minister doh!  Not me.


Anwar Ibrahim supporters, maybe you can ask your hero to provide some answers.


Sun Tzu tak tahu pasal SST. 

Adam Smith pun tak tahu pasal SST. 
Yusuf Qardawi tahu pasal unta kut.  
Malik Ben Nabi pula saya pun tak tahu apa dia tahu.

So stop dropping these useless names and give us real solutions.   

But Anwar will not be able to provide any solutions.  
This is his biggest problem. 
His  knowledge base  is very limited.  
To cover up,  he simply pretends to know.  

The only reason Anwar can fool so many people is because indeed so many people are fools. Thats you folks. Yes you. You are the fools.


Before, when Anwar was in governemnt, he could say anything he wanted. That was the time when he controlled the media. The newspapers, TV, radio projected his image to the sky.  He fell upon race and religion.  He became the Muslim Brotherhood’s man in Malaysia (the Ikhwan Muslimin).  


The Ikhwan provided him with all the academic and intellectual back up for him to feel sufficient. Little did he know that the Ikhwan itself was a bankrupt ideology that was headed for disaster. (This has since come true with the Arab Spring of 2011, now becoming the Arab Hell.)


Then Anwar got kicked out in 1998,  went to jail and became the permanent victim. The victim of conspiracy, victim of a black eye, victim of Najib, just a victim of everyone and every thing.  His punch like was simple :  “Justice for me. I am a victim.”  Hence his party was named ‘Keadilan’.  Justice.  


There was no need for Anwar to formulate any policies or any vision for the nation. He did not have to provide any real solutions.


But now he is on the inside loop. His good wife is the Deputy PM.  (May I state my admiration for Dr Wan Azizah’s stirling example of the dutiful wife who endured so much so patiently  in her life). Now Anwar is no more the victim. He has to provide the solutions – for a nation of 32 million people.  


This is where the brader has the foggiest idea.  So  we are going to hear more Adam Smith, Sun Tzu, Yusuf Qardawi, Ben Nabi, Hassan Banna and such.  He must appear to sound intelligent. 


Repeat this to your friends folks, because this is a true statement :   Anwar Ibrahim does not say anything profound.  


Monday comes after Sunday. 

Then Tuesday comes after Monday.   
Adam Smith went to work on a Monday morning. 
Sunday was his day off.  
Thats about it.

This is where time is NOT on Anwar’s side.  Not only is Tun Dr Mahathir in charge but there is the steady hand of Tun Daim Zainuddin at the Council of Elders. The country is already in good hands.


Lim Guan Eng as Chief Minister of Penang knows a thing or two about managing an economy.  So does Azmin Ali who is now the Economic Affairs Minister. Azmin too would have built up his expertise in managing the country’s economic affairs.


As time passes, these younger leaders will begin to consolidate their positions and even begin to shine.  Let us hope so.  Because we really need dynamic leadership. 


In such an event Anwar Ibrahim will just fade away into the background.  With his Adam Smith quotes, Sun Tzu, Malik Ben Nabi, Yusuf Qardawi and other really not relevant  sound bytes.


Anwar Ibrahim knows this very well.  That is why he cannot afford to wait for TWO years.  They say that one week is too long in politics.  TWO YEARS  will be fatal for his chances at becoming PM.


Anwar Ibrahim has no choice but to move now to become PM.  

If he does not make his move now,  there will never be another chance for him.

There is also another HUGE unknown. 


What if Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah runs for the UMNO presidency and wins it? 

That will change the equation entirely.  Completely. 

PPBM + PKR + DAP + Amanah + Hindraaf + Tengku Razaleigh’s UMNO Terbaru = ?? 


I think I will hear the phone ringing soon.
