Once again RPK is titillating us with his latest juicy revelations in EPISODE 8: The man behind PKR (Part 2), a story of John Soh as the man pushing Anwar into real reforms. Hmmm, I wonder whether John Soh is, as I was told, Datuk Lamb wakakaka (yes, lamb as in sheep's baby).
In Peter's (RPK) story we are informed that (once again) Anwar has deferred to Azmin Ali who powerfully veto-ed Soh’s proposed reforms, leading to the breakup between Anwar and Soh.
How true is this, alas, I can’t say though I must confess the allegations against Azmin Ali the spoiler attracts me as I have a really low (subterranean in fact) opinion of Anwar’s blue-eyed darling, especially after the PKR's last party 'election(???)'.
Peter’s tale stated: John Soh was propagating reforms but all his plans to push for reforms were always met with resistance. Only then did John Soh realise the influence Azmin Ali had over Anwar. If John Soh wanted Anwar to agree to anything, he must first get Azmin Ali to agree to it. Only then would he be able to get Anwar to go along with the proposal.
The PKR supreme council was a lame duck council because Anwar was constantly referring to his old Umno mafia on how to run the party. What upset John Soh the most was the party-within-a-party structure where within the official party circle was another unofficial all-Malay circle comprising of ex-Umno cronies. In fact, this second inner circle would hold its own separate meetings further to the main meetings.
I have often referred to Anwar’s ‘old UMNO mafia’ and his ‘party-within-a-party’ as his ‘inner coterie’.
But what confirmed my concerns about Anwar’s manmanlai deformasi was Peter’s revelation of Soh’s RM300 million which allegedly Anwar depended upon for his outrageous 916 attempted coup d’état.
The saddest consequence of Anwar’s 916 debacle was a DAP sweetie like Hannah Yeoh being swept into that mesmerizing manmanlai mist of malarkey – see my February 2009 post DAP should stop defending Anwar Ibrahim where Hannah stupidly wrote (yes, I support DAP but that doesn’t mean I am like some people, blind as a bat wakakaka):
“Those who argue that the political crisis in Perak now is a taste of Pakatan Rakyat’s own medicine – a reference to Sept 16 – fail to see the key differences between the two.”
“When Anwar claimed to have the numbers to form the federal government, he wrote to Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, requesting him to convene an emergency sitting of Parliament. This was rejected by the prime minister.”
“The next constitutional option was to press for the dissolution of Parliament to make way for fresh elections. This too was not entertained.”
“Anwar exhausted every constitutional means available to him. If Pakatan were to act unconstitutionally and lure defections, then we will be having a new government today. So, you can’t say that Najib’s coup in Perak and the Pakatan plan – Sept 16 – were one and the same.”
Leaving aside the different issue of Najib’s coup d’état in Perak which involved someone high up who should have stayed out of direct politics, Hannah Yeoh was stupid (and I hope the sweetie isn’t now) to claim that Anwar had the right to demand AAB convened an emergency sitting of Parliament or to press for the dissolution of Parliament to make way for fresh elections.
WTF for, just after an election where AAB’s BN trounced Pakatan by 140 seats to 82? Was she mathematically challenged?
She's lucky I have described her as stupid rather than undemocratic or a proponent of frog-ology, though it broke my heart in doing so. And if she was not stupid then she certainly was mesmerized by the mafulat-ish manmanlai mist of malarkey – but such has been, is and will be the power of Anwar Ibrahim’s snake-oil salesman charm.
As a voter who supports DAP for its CAT policy, I wrote in that 2009 post: ... it grieves, in fact distresses me greatly to disagree with her on her views on Anwar Ibrahim’s 916 as measured against the BN’s coup d’état in Perak, which she had posted on her blog, and which saw her article clung on to by the Anwar Ibrahim’s blog like a drowning man would the proverbial straw …
Hannah Yeoh's letter supporting Anwar's 916 was published in Malaysiakini on 5 February 2009 as Pakatan makes no apologies for Sept 16.
Before someone wakakaka complains I write lengthy posts I’ll conclude here by summarising above points, including the alleged happenings/observations in Peter's EPISODE 8: The man behind PKR (Part 2):
(1) Azmin Ali was main stumbling block to real reformasi pushed by Soh for PKR,
(2) Anwar’s 916 Deformasi depended on money to buy frogs,
(3) PKR is in fact an UMNO-mafia-rish wolf in PKR sheep’s clothing, which Datuk Lamb found out was against his advocated reforms, wakakaka.
But I’ll be back soon with a new post titled ‘Three fallacies regarding Anwar Ibrahim’ wakakaka.
