There is a lot of uneasiness in town, my friends tell me. And it’s all got to do with Anwar Ibrahim’s deadline on Tuesday – for Parliament to convene an emergency meeting.

Even deputy prime minister, now finance minister Najib Tun Razak has cancelled his trip overseas. Despite saying that Anwar is acting (Rais Yatim in New Straits Times), it seems UMNO is preparing for the worst.

Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Najib swapping portfolios, may seem like paving the way for the latter to become Prime Minister, but will that happen?

It seems like the most likely scenario now. But not if someone has his way!

However, I think Anwar is moving too slow in realising his plans, almost tortoise like, frogs are supposed to jump with much agility.

Why so slow when it seems the Agong has agreed to the ‘PLAN’? Why so slow when instead of 31 (++), there may actually be about 48 (+/-) defectors?

Perhaps,what is more likely to happen is Anwar’s arrest on September 24.

“When the prime minister, in any developing country where these sorts of security laws are in operation, states that you are a threat to the economy and possibly national security, then the next option is to arrest” (Anwar in TheAGE).

    Why is the PM hanging on to it? Abdullah Badawi has handed over the Finance Minister’s post to his deputy, but he is not letting Najib head Khazanah, the investment arm of the Government. Why is that so? Why did the Prime Minister create a Khazanah Deputy Chairman post for Najib, instead?

    Is it going to happen? I doubt it susan, news from Sabah is not good.All Anwar getting are Sapp members of parliament.The rest are very skeptical whether Anwar has the numbers,

    “The rest are very skeptical whether Anwar has the numbers,”

    They say that so special branch will not bother them.

  4. pywong says:

    If the numbers are there, whether they take Anwar in or not, will not matter. He will have his second liners on standby to take over. Don’t forget Wan Azizah. Taking in Anwar will only make the people more angry and lessen support for UMNO. That will merely hasten UMNO’s downfall. It is now the people vs UMNO, no longer Anwar vs UMNO anymore.

    Sept 16 was not a date. It was a change of the people’s perception about the possibility of change of govt. That has been achieved.

    After all these delays, don’t even think Anwar is gonna be a PM afterall.
    What I was wondering from the start is why should Anwar revealed all his plan first,if he wanted to “capture” Putrajaya?
    All these does’nt make sense at all.
    We know that by revealing it all, his opponent will start to make all sorts of preparation to foil any attempt.
    We rakyat are very disturbed now because of so much delays and my advice to Anwar is, if you cannot make it, just give up and wait for the next GE.
    Otherwise our country’s economy will worsen even more further because all those foreign investors will tend to lose patience and confidence.
    Most of us are being stuck halfway and don’t even know who to believe?
    Stop the “poker game” please!!!

    Next 48 hours, then another 48 hours, then 2 weeks, then…

    I’m not against anyone or anything, but this has got to stop laaa. Concentrate on the five states, and fortify for the next elections, man!

    I just got back from Penang. My relatives were sharing how empty all the new condos and apartments are, and how people are just leaving the State (but to where? Takkan Selangor?)…c’mon. This is an opportunity of a lifetime.

    Pywong is mastering the art of spinning, me guess:)

    pywong
    Anwar said he already had the numbers long before Sept 16. And now you’re saying 16 Sept was not a date. Come on, you can do better than that.

  10. kittykat46 says:

    Penang’s economy is slowing down, and so is the rest of Malaysia’s. Just a few months ago, the MSM was still full of how good the management of Malaysia’s economy was under Bee End. Now that the bad economy is just undeniable anymore, the latest spin is to blame it all on Anwar Ibrahim.

    When is Bee End ever going to step up, take responsibility and start governing the country ?

    If Bee End is incapable of governing, I say, let Anwar Ibrahim take it up. If he’s bad, we’ll just kick him out next elections.

  11. pywong says:

    Two-face,
    Bear in mind the challenge is how to manage change peacefully and to get the people to believe that it is possible. We are dealing with a regime who has resorted to fear and violence to achieve its aims. The first part is still the challenge. The 2nd is done. Majority of the population has woke up.

    The 3rd part is how to have a higher % of Malays in the new Govt. Not important as far as I am concerned but it seems it is to PR.

    Don’t listen to the words. Watch the actions of UMNO. That is more telling.

    Sooo. Wait lah.

  12. Kopi Anan says:

    if Anwar Ibrahim’s case goes to High Court and the arguments fail at the Sessions Court, and that the Sessions President suddenly decides to REVOKE bail …

    then, we all know exactly what Zaid Ibrahim DON’T WANT to be part.

    why not do the honourable thing auction our judiciary to the highest bidder !

  13. Antares says:

    The Battle for the Hearts and Minds of the Rakyat has already been decided. Each time a Pakatan leader speaks, people feel heartened and cheer wildly. But whenever these Umno/BN felons open their stinking mouths, they get pelted with rotten vegetables and cicak shit bombs. There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY Umno/BN can pull itself out of its high-speed nosedive to political oblivion. That sleazebag despot of a Mamak still thinks his reptilian kind of thinking is relevant… pity defler, so totally deluded! Don’t worry, people… Anwar & the Pakatan have already won this war. Fascinating to see those cut-off Umno limbs still clutching at straws and evil laws, and those silly pink lips still opening and shutting even after the head has been chopped off.

  14. Tirath says:

    I completely agree with sikapitan, can we please STOP THIS NONSENSE?!?!? It’s business time, we need to focus on getting the country through a potential global recession. How can we have a serious non-partisan discussion on re-pegging the RM when Anwar is running around trying to topple the government? This is a serious issue. And I think it’s worth keeping in mind that, in 1997, DAP backed Mahathir’s economic package and rejected Anwar’s, so there is substantive difference in economic policy.

    Anyway, if Anwar so desperately wanted Malaysia to change horse, Sept 16th was the absolute deadline. Now we are mid-stream already… no more changing horse, now we all work together to get through the tough times.

    And any state EXCO who says “aiyah, we cannot do anything la, Federal has all the power” (you know who you are)… well, feel free to resign and let others with more of a can-do attitude take over. We, the people who pay your salary, don’t want to hear this kind of whining just 6 months into your job.

  15. matt says:

    Sometimes i wonder how things will change will change for the better,with the civil service still having the same composition even in the 5 pakatan states. Now with pr say taking over the federal govt, will the playing field be level or back to the old ways so as not to offend you know who.

    While citizen of other nations come together to deal with the threat of 21st century Great Depression, the citizen of country is fighting to put someone as the Prime Minister. I would not bet a single sen on Anwar as the Prime Minister as in 1997 he almost brought this country to succumb to wrath of IMF. Will he be bringing in IMF this time. Please read Joseph Stiglitz (former IMF President and Clinton Economic Advisor) latest book on “Making Globalisation Work” and decide whether we should vote Anwar in as the PM. Anwar is a politician true and true, but we need a leader for our country to face the world financial crisis. If Anwar’s so called brilliant brainon fuel price is only to cut down 50 sen( remember the great historical debate Anwar vs Shaberry) without other plans, I would forget him anytime to face the crisis. Please, let’s move on. Forget about Anwar’s personal dream of becoming the PM. Let him dream on…

    When do ‘revolutions’ of state and mind take place?

    How long the downtrodden be kept in their place?
    Why is it so important for the upper classes of society to remain within their comfort zone, whilst the sea of humanity suffers under tyranny?
    Does anyone like violence and anarchy on the streets?
    Do we want a peaceful transition of power?
    Why does scepticsm and cynicsm creep in when one truly yearns for liberty?
    Why are dates, time and temporal schedules cast in stone, when hope abounds?
    Are we truly ready for a paradigm change in mentality?
    Or are we jawing for the ‘good old times’ when corruption, nepotism, cronyism, feudalism, racism, facism, inequality and sheer incompetency reigns?
    Answer this in all honesty and one may solve one’s own conundrum…
    Btw matt (11:13), can’t change the civil service overnight because of G.O’s. Can only hope that the stick and carrot approach works. Not private sector – hire & fire stuff; ossified you see…

    One can imagine what the PM’s power can be abused to a vested personal interest where SAPP’s Raymond Tan claimed he pleaded with the PM to not arrest Party President Yong Teck Lee when the latter inclined to move a motion of no-confidence against the PM. Note that how the Police and the ACA are under the hands of the PM. Whether the claims by Tan is true is another matter.

    Don’t blame Anwar for lousy business or lousy month….or lousy economy.
    For past 6 months….UMNO have done nothing good except that lousy 15 sen reduction in petrol from a huge huge 79 sen increase.
    Now world oil have gone down so much…..Dollah is saying …Petronas must make the money. Just look at that shit talk of his. Now look at the TDM RM18 billion investments….that’s where our money goes…to big deals…with big profits to UMNO and crooks…..the never ending style…the never ending story….to suck us high and dry.
    And if he wants to prove Anwar is a liar….just meet him and ask him to show the list. Why he dare not meet Amwar???
    NO…he is afraid..very afraid to see the truths….and that drags on and on….holding up businesses and investments.
    The country is at a stand still….nothing moving in……except ..money moving out..all because of Dollah….no balls to do the right thing.

    so tell me, tell the whole world, what do you do when you have limited power?

    It is true that the state governments do not have much power when it comes to a lot of things. Just look back at what happened to Bandar Mahkota Cheras, the Selangor state exco did a lot of things, but that didn’t stop some idiot sending the FRU to beat up the innocent residents. So tell me, what would you do then if you were one of the Selangore exco? And more importantly, what would you do that would change the outcome?

    Get real.

    go back and work hard and impress your boss. stop blogging about politic anymore. it’s dead by then and i feel sorry for RPK.

    crash

  26. wira says:

    I agree with PYWong.

    The reaction from UMNO seems to tell us a lot about the majority which DSAI claims he has.

    If the numbers are not there, why are UMNO, AAB, NTR and the whole UMNO cabinet running scared ?
    If the numbers are not there, why doesn’t the PM agree to convene a special sitting of parliament and settle this issue once and for all ? It will be a stabilising factor for the economy.
    If the numbers are not there, why is UMNO acting stupid, falling back to old tricks learnt 2 and 4 decades ago ?

  27. Lallang exile says:

    Defections are wrong. Period.

    No matter what the opposition promises.

    1) by accepting that defections are right, we are compromising our stand on what is morally wrong.

    2) a govt which compromises on this will compromise on other matters. think about it. it’s the same play with a different cast uttering the same lines, that’s all.

    3) opposition’s record untested yet.

    4) anwar ’s record so far shows he’s no different from M or AAB in all aspects – as education minister, he agitated for the closure of chinese schools to boost his politcal clout; i need not expand further on his record as as finance minister.

    5) leading us back to the same scenario.

    Hardselling a product called “Good governance” with accompanying promises might work on some. Some would say that the marketing of Anwar – backed and financed by the Americans – have been pretty successful.

    But i believe the majority of the rakyat are aware of what’s going on and won’t buy it.

    I’m betting that come the next GE, the PKR coalition will not do as well as this round. Why? Because more of the rakyat would have begun to see through what they stand for.

    assalamualaikum!

  28. alok says:

    i have my 90% confidence in Anwar, he will take over!

    the signs are everywhere. the confidence, the composure, the fearlessness.

    it is just a matter of time. everything will fall into place. just like PR planned

    In an ideal world defection is necessarily wrong, as with a lot of other things as well. No one is trying to intimidate his views ; it has appeared to be the other way around.

    In the seventies, it is not uncommon to have cartoonists depicting scenes where a breaded man would hold a placard that read ‘Repent – The End of the World is Near’. Armageddon never came in the 70s, 80s nor 90s. Nowadays, cartoonists usually draw beggars holding such signposts, maybe as a snicker to the past fanaticism. Ironically, is Pakatan now constantly holding up the placard that reads ‘Rejoice- The End of BN is Near’. Sigh…please stop politicking. If it is not going to happen, don’t lah demean the effort of those who are really working towards a better future for Malaysia. With the impending Economy Implosion…the Federal Seat is not going to be rosy & warm at all.

    Whispering, in the 50’s, it was the invaders from Mars etc….things has now morphed into the religion of Global Warming now. People are conditioned to harbour a deep fetish over Doomsday in some quasi-religious way. It sells and can also be self serving for those manipulating the idea.

    I really don’t care if BN will fall fast or slower. Fact remains that change is the natural order of things. 51 years of muddling along and short changing the people says that a repressive ideology must go so that the people can breathe more freely. For this, I not disturbed by the hypes and repetition. We have suffered 51 years of BN’s, what’s a little now from an opposition? We can learn to filter out the statics.

  35. Ronin says:

    here’s is a thought Suloones. in depth and well researhed. bloggers, tell me what you think?

    Why Najib Shld stay with Pak Lah?

    The most important political development in town has very little to do with Anwar Ibrahim. Instead, it is about the dynamics of the relationship between the Prime Minister and his deputy and how they approach the UMNO party elections that are set to commence with the divisional meetings on 9 October.

    Neither Abdullah Ahmad Badawi nor Najib Tun Razak wants to fight the other. They know that this would be disastrous for the party and even prove to be the final nail in its coffin. Both want to honour the spirit, if no longer the exact letter, of the transition plan which originally intended for Najib to take over the premiership and party presidency in June 2010. It was a deal brokered directly by the two men and endorsed by the party Supreme Council.

    But things began to fall apart after the loss at the Permatang Pauh by-election even though this had very little to do with Abdullah’s leadership (in fact it was seen more as a battle between Anwar Ibrahim and Najib). There was a resurgence of dissent within party ranks led by vice president, Muhyiddin Yassin, and egged on by Mahathir Mohamed from the outside. This was an opportunity to renew the pressure on Abdullah to go now rather than later. But the spark that lit the fire was Najib’s statement a couple of weeks ago that although he was committed to the transition plan, he would also leave it to the divisions to decide whether they want to support it as well. Politics is all about signaling. For many in the party, that statement by Najib was a signal that he would contest the presidency against Abdullah.

    Opportunistic dissenters like Muhyiddin latched onto Najib’s statement and instigated the grassroots to create a groundswell effect against Abdullah in order to pressure him to bow out in December. For Muhyiddin, this would be a dream scenario with him walking into the deputy presidency of the party probably unchallenged and thereby becoming also the Deputy Prime Minister. Everything came to a head at last week’s UMNO Supreme Council meeting where three members – Muhyiddin, Shafie Apdal and Rafidah Aziz – came out to ask Abdullah to hand over power to Najib earlier than the scheduled timetable. Pro-Abdullah forces in the council were told to stand down during the meeting in order to not worsen the situation.

    So what does Najib do now? For all intents and purposes, he is still outwardly committed to the transition plan and does not want to fight Abdullah. He knows that if he digs his heels in with Abdullah, the top job will be there for him by mid 2010 at the latest but in all probability much earlier since Abdullah himself has said that he is willing to be flexible about retiring sooner. The only thing that worries Najib is that if he sticks with Abdullah and there is a challenge from a Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah-Muhyiddin team, he might get swept away along with Abdullah. However, these fears are unfounded. Party leaders know that if Najib swings his support totally behind Abdullah and their forces work together on the ground, there is no other alternative combination that can beat them.

    For Najib, if he decides not to honour his word to Abdullah, he knows he will be stuck with Muhyiddin as his deputy. This would be a problem for him later because the two men are suspicious of one another having once been rivals for the job of Abdullah’s deputy. Muhyiddin has also demonstrated via his dissent towards Abdullah that he is a man who has no qualms stabbing his boss in the back, and may do the same to Najib especially in a time of political crisis. Muhyiddin will also not be beholden to Najib because he will think that his elevation to deputy premier and deputy president of UMNO has little to do with Najib. So for these reasons, Najib will not want Muhyiddin as his deputy.

    Najib would be in a much more comfortable position if he goes with the transition deal with Abdullah, and then when the time comes for Abdullah to step down, Najib would have three vice presidents to choose from as his deputy. Not only does this give him the luxury of choice but it will most certainly make the person he selects as his deputy completely beholden to him because it will be entirely Najib’s decision unlike the scenario of having Muhyiddin forced on him.

    There are also other reasons Najib should stick with Abdullah. As far as UMNO members are concerned, Najib may be popular. This is courtesy of a solid network that he has cultivated for the last three decades. But his image and credibility publicly is something else. For many people Najib is synonymous with the brutal murder of the Mongolian woman, Altantuya Shaariibuu. Regardless of Najib’s repeated religious oaths that he never even met Altantuya, the taint refuses to go away especially since the man accused of abetting the murder, Razak Baginda, was a close advisor and friend to Najib. Apart from the Altantuya case, Najib is also dogged by shady arms purchases notably the procurement of Sukhoi fighter jets and submarines in which Razak is suspected of pocketing hundreds of millions of Ringgit worth of commission direct from the principal. So with the SAS (Sukhoi, Altantuya, Submarine) scandal tarnishing his public image, Najib still needs Abdullah as a shield of sorts. In fact, Anwar is relentless in his attacks on the SAS issues exposing it as Najib’s vulnerable Achilles’ heel. So long as Abdullah is around, Najib can use the time to rehabilitate his public image especially with his new portfolio at the Treasury where he can enact popular policies to deflect the public’s attention from the SAS issues.

    Finally, the last thing Najib wants is to go through a bruising fight with Abdullah. Najib may ultimately win the battle with current sentiment against Abdullah and his formidable network in UMNO, but could lose the war because of a damaged and divided party.. Abdullah may be against the ropes but he’s not going to be a pushover. His supporters will use every advantage of incumbency to fight any challenge and it will significantly split UMNO. This is something that Najib can ill-afford. Even if he takes on and beats Abdullah, he will be left with a party ruined. The implications of this are serious. If BN component parties see a broken UMNO, they might just take it as a signal to jump ship and join Anwar. That could prove to be the final act on the demise of UMNO and it will be on Najib’s watch.

    So although Najib may feel insecure about taking his chances with Abdullah for the fear of going down with him, he stands to gain more from sticking to the transition plan and fighting it out by Abdullah’s side. It will give him the freedom to choose his deputy, a shield against attacks, time to rehabilitate his battered public image and it will avoid a damaging contest that can destroy UMNO. It must also be remembered that the next few months will be crucial on Anwar front. The sodomy trial will get under way and Najib will not want to be alone when all the sordid details of the case are revealed given his association with Saiful Bukhari Azlan who accuses Anwar of having sodomized him. Without Abdullah, the focus will be entirely on Najib and this could damage further his public image.

    Given these arguments, Najib should come out soon to give a categorical statement to support Abdullah’s candidacy for party president. It may not only appear to be the wisest choice but also one that will make Najib most secure in the long run.

  39. Tirath says:

    Daniel, your comment at (15:08:29) essentially answered the fundamental question you posed to me at (13:00:19).

    State governments can’t do everything, as seen in the BMC case. But they can do a lot of things, as you yourself have pointed out. Schools have been approved, Penang is rolling out a municipal WIFI blueprint, elections for kampung heads have been introduced in Perak, water price cut in Selangor… these are all major moves that impact the lives of the rakyat. WIth much more to come. In fact, it’s in Pakatan’s best interest to maintain the status quo as it is now, to execute all their plans, like transport overhaul in Penang. I believe the status quo is also in Malaysia’s best interest, all things considered. The only person who doesn’t have a good deal at the moment is Anwar Ibrahim. Opposition Leader shoes are not easy to kill; I’m serious about that. Kit Siang makes it look easy. In Australia, the opposition leader just had to be changed because he couldn’t quite do the job. But I am sure Anwar is up to the job. He can speak well. That’s actually an important part of the job.

    Anyway, I’m not continuing this conversation, I feel I’ve made my point, and I’ve heard bad things about the crowd in Susan Loone’s blog. so byyeeeeeee……

  40. Lallang exile says:

    don’t let the crowd intimidate nor belittle you and your thoughts.

    i think susan is fairer than most moderators by far on malaysian politics.

    of course she has her affiliations (with anwar, i think), but then she’s fully entitled to it.

    the more the anwarites try to shoot down our views, the worse it reflects on what they are made up of.

    And we are discussing untested “good governance” here.

    cheers, and keep on posting.

  45. 2ndchance says:

    “I feel I’ve made my point, and I’ve heard bad things about the crowd in Susan Loone’s blog. so byyeeeeeee……”

    Tirath (16:51:21) ,
    haha… in one of the posts you accuse exco of PR not doing things, in another posts you say they have done a lot of things.
    So it appears that you are hard to be pleased.
    I say, give people more time. Not that you have not seen improvement.
    Hmm… bye bye, if that’s what you want.

  47. Lallang exile says:

    2nd chance,

    well, really i have no need to convince anyone – least of all you – who i am.

    unlike u who hide under multiple names – including imposting my cyber name – i post what i think without fear or favour. using the same name.

    but u can’t stand that, right? that someone not from barisan is not supporting your cult leader.

  48. Daniel says:

    Tirath (16:51:21) ,
    by the way, it sounds to me that you are offended when others have different views than yours. Can’t you talk and have meaningful debate with others?

  49. 2ndchance says:

    “well, really i have no need to convince anyone – least of all you – who i am. ”

    Hahaha how asinine. You think we don`t know that. Stating the obvious.

    “unlike u who hide under multiple names – including imposting my cyber name – i post what i think without fear or favour. using the same name.”

    No nic on the net is a trademark. Others are also free to post without fear or favour – unlike you who thinks it`s only your prerogative.

    “but u can’t stand that, right? that someone not from barisan is not supporting your cult leader.”

    Spoken like a true BN loyalist. Badawi, Najib etc etc etc say the same. Nothing new there either. You know best for everyone – like what you all have been doing for 51 years.

    PM Must Be Investigated For This Statement
    According to online news Malaysiakini:

    “I stopped PM from ordering Yong’s arrest”

    Former Sapp deputy president Raymond Tan claims that he had intervened in June to deter an anti-graft investigation against party president Yong Teck Lee.
    More details at Malaysiakini.

  51. 2ndchance says:

    Has Yong Teck Lee committed any crime? If he had, then the police must take action and if Raymond Tan knew about any offence committed by Yong, he should assist the police investigation. Instead he stopped the PM from ordering Yong’s arrest and by Raymond statement the PM did take his advise.

    The next question, has the PM the power to over rule any police action by taking order from someone, whether to arrest or not to arrest anyone person? If he does, then my perception is that the PM order the police to arrest the journalist Tan Hoon Cheng and not the Ahmad who by law had committed a serious offence, RPK and MP Teresa Kok by obeying the instructions given by someone of status just like Raymond Tan case with Yong Teck Lee.

  52. 2ndchance says:

    The statement by Raymond Tan that he “stopped PM from ordering Yong’s arrest” prove all along that justice is not carried out according to the law of this country but to the command of UMNO leaders.

    Can the PM be charged for obstructing justice? Will the bar council take a serious view and action into this kind of behavior and not just passing resolutions after resolutions but no actions.

    first thing first,before anwar can announce the BN hoppers and take over the parliment, he need the black and white consent from abdullah that he will be the prime minister if it really happens!!!

    abdullah is ‘elected’ by the ‘people’, as the PM, he is absolutely can’t be demoted or fired, he can only resign or ‘die’.

    even if Agong is on his side, or parliment is under his control, anwar can’t become PM without abdullah consent. that’s exactly happen in sabah when some party hoppers jump from PBS to BN. PBS still rule for 2 weeks until pairin gave up and resign under pressure.

    anwar is definitely not lying. there are party hoppers waiting for a black and white from abdullah before announcing their jump. anwar has the money, power, he knows his way around BN, and he is experienced in taking over government by party hoppings. it now comes down to the main ‘heroes’ fight between this two man

    don’t act like you are above others.
    I tried to engage Tirath in a discussion/debate, but all he/she could offer is, “I have finished talking, so I am not going to talk to you anymore.” And immediately you found an ally there. If you like to voice your view here (or anywhere), then be ready to see someone write something that’s not in agreement with your view.
    Remember, we all are entitled to our own view. Get used to it. Maybe that’s what Tirath can’t swallow, that’s why he/she chose to run away.

    bern,
    please enlighten me by your statement “Abdullah was elected by the PEOPLE”.

    This is a westminster parliamentary system you are talking about, not a direct presidential election like in US or Taiwan. It’s the same thing in UK, they did not elect Gordon Brown, nor Tony Blair.

    hahahhahahahha

    unlike your namesake who valiantly fought off the lions, your comments lack even an ounce of logic where the issues discussed are concerned.

    i miss bloggers like temenggong who at least try to cross swords with me in a coherent thread, without resorting to personal attacks. i don’t do personal attacks, if u hadn’t already noticed.

    for that is what u are doing now, trying to paint me as “being above others’ just becasue i offer a different view!!

    if u are in power, all dissident voices would be muffled, including this blog since it offers differing viewpoints.

    Yet again, guys, this is an appetiser of what is on the main course. while rome burns, our mat jenin and his followers are in full throttle in their efforts to seize powe, by hook or by crook.

    and people like daniel are seeking to justify themselves. do it, but don’t try to pull the wool over the rakyat’s eyes. your spin is really weak.

    postings like theone below only serve to show how the anwarites are seeking to destabilise the country and scare the rakyat.

    it sounds very much like a letter circulated widely in kl/pj prior to ops lallang…but then anwar got away while others had to camp out in kamunting for a long while.

    Najib? Lee Kim Sai? Anwar paid when he was sent to prison for a long time. MCA operatives have not gone to prison. Ling Liong Sik was selling away the country`s topographical maps. He wasn`t shot for treason. So many more. And this punk comes here to try to sell BN propaganda like a heroin addicted prostitute. Podah!!!

    ——————————————
    I love short comments and for this reason, I’ll tell you that on the night of 513, the Radio M’sia was still broadcasting repeatedly for ppl to stay calm and not listen to rumours at around 8pm while mayhem was happening along what was then known as Princess Road, caused by umno rioters from Kg Baru.

    That was how reliable the official position was! Then there was abundance of posters of various sizes, especially an ubiquitous one measuring around 12 by 6 inches plastered everywhere in KL a week or so later…even before the Sentul massacre which happened about a forthnight later.

    That was how good gomen info was! It gave a false sense of security.

    Please don’t try to denigrate Kittykat’s take if he does not buy what is the political correct stance and chose to take some precaution and not totally place his trust in a system that is proven unreliable. He has not asked anyone not to carry on normally through his take.

    You really can find solace in KTemoc’s blog and his tall tales, not here where you opined without the benefit of actual experience and hind sights. You are deranged by Anwar like he is. BTW, Kittykat is PKR, not DAP. Well, you didn’t bother to observe more closely before shooting from the hip, as is seemingly your style.

    Hey wits, that is about the longest piece you had ever written!
    I like the part on “false sense of security”…
    Well we do know that Rome burned, not once (if referring to Nero) but many times! But there’s quite a bit of demented laughter around izzn’t it?
    It takes many times to burn herbaceous thoughts, esp. when it’s narcisisstic and schizoid.
    Anyway the status quo’s gotta go – now! Who says it has to burn? Venom (bISA) would do just as well.

  66. Hunk says:

    Personally, I think Lallang Exile and Chaptokam (the alleged MCA operative) should consider what the undersaid commentator pointed out in his/her reference to a Malaysiakini report that the ACA and understandably the Police are under the tacit instructions of the PM and probably any other powerhouse from the BN component parties in an apparent eminence grise to obstruct, instruct and tamper with the 2 most powerful Government institutions as per mentioned – Yong Teck Lee being charged for corruption for his intepredities to move a vote of no-confidence against the PM.

    If this is the ruling coalition (Government) under the BN regime that has “dirty hands” in meddling and persecuting anyone objecting/ obstruction to thier (BN) apparent injustices, then I put it to you that you are an abettor to the cause (of such injustices) and/or the beneficiaries of the present Government projects/deals that your persistence of wanting a corrupt Government in tenacity reflected your undying lust for further avarice at the expense of others?

    Read under the dotted lines and refer to Malaysiakini.

    It would be a good idea to have a systematic witch
    hunt in this country after 50 years of being virtually
    a one party state. Those who don’t want to be caught
    with their pants down, should flee the country now
    while there is still time. This applies especially to
    Mahathir and family, Najib and family, Rafidah Aziz &
    Co, the IGP and the AG, among others.

    The first act of the Reformasi Government should be
    the confiscation of the passports of prime suspects, a
    travel ban, and the setting up of a Royal Commission
    of Inquiry into the May 13 Race Riots and the Taman
    Medan riots. Many of the perpetrators are still around
    and they need to be brought to justice.

    We also need to investigate the botched attempt to
    corner the International Tin Market, the billion
    dollar forex losses by Bank Negara and the secret
    accounts of Petronas, among others.

    Having initiated the sodomy allegations, the BN
    government cannot be expected to backtrack since that
    would lend further credence to the public suspicion
    that the allegations are the result of a political
    conspiracy hatched at the highest levels. Hence, the
    government would proceed with the investigations
    cautiously and head, even if somewhat gingerly, in the
    direction of the courts. This is Umno’s and BN’s death

  69. Dateline M says:

    According to DAP’s new vice-president,Tungku Aziz, the party holding the cards in this constitutional impasse is PAS.
    Its very simple.
    Whatever number of MP’s Anwar can get defecting from BN,it will be neutralised if PAS don’t go along with the deal.
    So Badawi will concentrate his efforts in wooing PAS.Retaining his chairmanship on Khazanah in the Ministry of Finanace is one such weapon.
    Imagine if he offers say 20% of shares in CIMB(controlled by Nazir Razak) to a PAS controlled institution he could deflect both Anwar’s and Najib’s challenge at the same time .
    All depends whether his Islam Hadhari or Anwar’s reformasi is more appealing to PAS grassroots.

  70. machitam says:

    they have tried and continue attempting to woo PAS. Yes, PAS not wanting “pisang berbuah dua kali” felt “flattering” because umno is appealing to them.

    The current Lallang Exile is a local resident, sounds like a Malay or Muslim, rabidly anti-Anwar, Mat Rempit-like in picking on other commentators.

    ….we will not allow RPK to take the fall alone. It is our fight for freedom, democracy and justice. True, the change will definitely take a little bit of time since Anwar and his colleagues are committed to bring about an orderly change via peaceful means. It is important that the Malaysian public react, not by falling into the brutal hands of the Police, but by supporting the Haris Ibrahim initiative.

    You and your friends can go to our High Commission and picket there. Go to some prominent politicians in your area and tell them to tell their PM to put pressure on Badawi and his henchmen.

    I feel a sense of outrage and will be with my blogger friends. We need to stand by Marina Petra and her daughters. Let us see what Badawi will do. He will be held personally responsible should anything happen to RPK. He should have the courage to tell both Najib and Syed Alblur to back off and release RPK.

    Najib will be in New York from September 25-30, 2008 for the UN General Assembly and let me tell you that there will be Mongolians and others waiting to greet him. Washington should give him a cold shoulder.

    MCA Demands Apology From Kit Siang
    2008-09-23 18:14

    KUALA LUMPUR: Selangor MCA Tuesday (23 Sept) demanded a public apology from DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang over his accusation that police reports lodged by members of an MCA division in Selangor led to the detention of DAP’s Seputeh Member of Parliament Teresa Kok under the Internal Security Act (ISA).

    “Everybody including the MCA is happy that Teresa Kok has been released. Nevertheless, we are sad to note that Lim Kit Siang had erroneously accused MCA for causing her arrest without showing any proof,” Selangor MCA secretary Datuk Lee Sing Chooi said in a statement here.

    Teresa Kok was detained on 12 Sept under the ISA to assist investigations regarding complaints about the “azan” (Muslim call to prayer) and was released on Friday (19 Sept).

    Lee added that Selangor MCA wanted Lim retract his remarks and make a public apology not to only the MCA, but to the general public at large. (Bernama)
