If it had been UMNO who demanded DAP to prove the latter is multiracial, I would have understood. But guess what, PKR has just done that, in the form of what I see as a disgraceful petulant sour grapes merajuking Baru Bian who told The Malaysian Insider PKR wants DAP and PAS to prove they’re multiracial, but obviously targeting the DAP. How f* dare he!
He claimed that PKR “...wants its Pakatan Rakyat PR partners to contest in ‘black seats’ in the next general election and dismiss the notion that they cannot cross the racial divide.”
He also told reporters that PKR “... could not continue shouldering the burden of contesting in BN strongholds alone."
Shouldering the burden of contesting in BN strongholds alone? My bloody foot, don't make my toes laugh!
This is the state head of a party who pre-emptively grabbed 52 seats without even a thought for its coalition allies in an unrealistic expectation PKR could be the winning PR member with the majority of seats, with him as CM wakakaka.
Here’s a case of a greedy gluttonous grabbing beast which had refused to share and ate more than it could practically swallow, and now blames DAP for its tummy ache. Padan muka.
But what could have triggered such an unfriendly accusation against the DAP from a supposedly PR ally? If we recall, just recently, Nurul Izzah, the so-called Princess of Reformasi had (post-election) greedily refused to concede some of the seats PKR unsuccessfully contested to its allies.
Surely, Bian’s current accusation against DAP flies in the face of consistency among PKR leaders vis-a-vis its claimed domain in Sarawak.
The probability lies in a green-eyed (not blue-eyed this time wakakaka) Baru Bian who was most chuffed by the lineup in the PR shadow cabinet, where he was assigned not the opposition leader’s post but only the shadow cabinet’s 'native & customary rights' and 'land development' portfolios, wakakaka.
Most likely he's jealous as hell, green to his gills, and like losers, blamed and focussed his anger on the state DAP.
So, not unexpetcedly, Anwar Ibrahim came out like a flash to say the Sarawak shadow cabinet lineup is not final, to mollify the green-eyed monster. Anwar sure has his hands full of blue-eyed and green-eyed boys, wakakaka.
Dei, Anwar, stay out of Sarawak State PR issues.
Maybe now we can see why the PR, for all its claim about being an alternative government, has been unable to form a shadow cabinet - it's likely to do with PKR's selfish ambition to sapu all the important portfolios like Finance, Home Affairs, Defence, etc. It may also explain the PKR gluttonous grabbing greed in the run up to the Sarawak election as a DNA problem coming from its federal leadership.
I fear the PR won’t last long unless ..... well, you work it out.
