Wow, I thought to myself, or more like it, fantasize wildly ...
... has he got his numbers finally, the crucial 31 MPs to resurrect 916?
Or, he has evidence that his Nemesis murdered Altantuyaa Shariibuu?
Won’t one of those be just greaaaAAT? Wow and double wow, no wait, make it triple wow!
So 5000 people (admittedly his supporters plus the press) went to his ceramah with great expectation – the Great Reformer has a stunning BIG BIG announcement that would shake Malaysian politics forever more.
And what was it?
Malaysiakini told us in PKR: Mass defections from Kedah PPP some 300 PPP (wow!) members have defected over to PKR, the reformasi party of Malaysia.
Initially it was reported that a mass wave of defections totally some 6,000 former PPP members had tsunami-ed across to join PKR, but ... alas, former PPP VP Nadarajan, one of the defectors, admitted to Malaysian Insider that only 300 or so PKR membership forms had been filled ...
... but but but, no worries ... he said the rest of the 5,700 will follow after the April 7 poll. ;-)
Terrific reformasi in action – yay!
Oh, before some of you comment on why I haven’t used the ’froggie’ word, belay your nasty comment ... that's because none of those 300 former PPP - now PKR members (application forms were submitted last night to join PKR – Bravo!) were elected in the last general election ;-)
Therefore they should be free to move around (politically) as they please because they haven’t betrayed any voters.
But it has been a proud moment for Anwar Ibrahim, the world's greatest political reformer, for succeeding in motivating 300 former BN members to jump ship.
A truly stupendous act in which he excels, which explains why his party’s election campaign strategist, Saifuddin Nasution, informed journalists to turn up en masse for the earth-shattering news or face the wrath of their editors for missing out on the PKR's defining watershed announcement – imagine, 300 PPP members recruited into PKR.
Reformasi at its best! Democracy has been saved. Najib, eat your heart out!
Oh, another thing ... I don't want any of you to be hurtful ... to Anwar, Nadarajah and those former PPP by questioning whether that was it, the PKR promised so-called BIG BIG BIG announcement?
... coz Anwar pre-empted any of your disdainful sneering comments by insisting that the PPP defections were not.
The Great Reformer said: "I was to make an announcement tonight but after a discussion last night, we have decided that it is too dangerous to do it now. When we win the three by-elections on April 7, then I will make the announcement."
Huh? It's not safe now, but it'll be safe after the by-elections?
Truly vintage man man lai Anwar Ibrahim, wakakakakakakakakkakakaaa!
