PKR makes me sick – they set standards for DAP that they themselves were unable to reach.
See Malaysiakini Guan Eng gagged on Fairus issue where PKR deputy president Dr Syed Husin Ali had the nerve to tell Lim Guan Eng "On behalf of PKR, I ask him not to raise this matter through the media."
And guess how Dr Syed passed that message to Lim?
Yes, through the media.
Incidentally, Malaysiakini has been unduly provocative by suggesting that Dr Syed of PKR could 'gag' Lim Guan Eng of DAP.Then in The Malaysian Insider PKR flays Guan Eng over Penanti PKR Penang chief Zahrain Mohamed Hashim said that Guan Eng should stop talking to the press about the issue and instead use internal mechanisms.
He stated: "As a member of the pact, why can't he discuss directly with Anwar on Fairus' successor as DCM1 and Penanti assemblyman?"
And like Dr Syed, he USED THE MEDIA, and not any internal mechanism, to pass this message to Lim.
But sadly, neither Dr Syed and Zahrain mentioned the disrespect that Anwar Ibrahim had demonstrated when he informed the media of Fairus’ resignation without even informing the CM, an ally who had the courtesy to (1) reserve a deputy CM post for PKR, and (2) defer to Anwar Ibrahim on the choice of a PKR person (no mamak please only Melayu ‘coz we’re PKR) for the post.
Not one f* mention of the wrong done to Lim GE.
PKR is getting too arrogant!
While hardworking Lim GE has been going round Asia, the latest being Singapore, trying to invite investments for Penang, Anwar Ibrahim has been grandstanding to the media about his 916, 'BIG' announcement and such likes, including boasting (as reported in Malaysiakini) that Fairus stays despite tempting offers.
He had the brazen cheek to “... hail[--] Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin for being a ‘gentleman’ by gracefully relinquishing all his elected and appointed positions in the Penang government. The opposition leader said PKR took pride that a young leader like Mohammad Fairus was standing up for his principle to clear his name from the graft allegations and prevent the party from being further tarnished.”
... when virtually everyone knows all too well that Fairus had threatened to wash PKR's dirty linen in public if Anwar didn't sort out the alleged corruption attributed to Fairus.
Additionally, Mr Man Man Lai has been so busy with his obsession of seizing power, in order to realize his dreams of becoming PM that thus far he hasn't contributed anything worthwhile to the rule of the 5 Pakatan states, or as a viable alternative government.
He has only focussed on destabilizing the government for his own interests. I won't hold my breath over a small thing like the formation of a shadown cabinet, let alone his promised punishment of the Kulim Wonder.
All his nonsense would be like his 'BIG' announcement pffffffft-ing off whimpishly into little wisp of froggie fart.
We should heed Karpal Singh's call for Anwar Ibrahim to step down and fade away.
Also, Abdul Malik Abdul Kassim, Law Choo Kiang, Jason Ong, VS Raveenthran, Sim Tze Tzin, Ong Chin Wen and Tan Hock Leong should consider joining DAP where each and everyone of you will be considered/appointed on your merits and ability, and not on your ethnicity.
(1) Lim Guan Eng questioned Anwar Ibrahim's spirit of camaraderie & cooperation
(2) Lim Guan Eng feels betrayed by Anwar Ibrahim!
