The super sub


From TMI's DAP, PAS to discuss PKR’s Selangor MB proposal, says Anwar

Anwar said he would step aside as state economic adviser if Dr Wan Azizah was appointed as MB.

"I don't think I will have any role and I will not continue as economic adviser if Azizah becomes the MB‎."


What did Anwar Ibrahim mean by that?

Could it be one (or all) of the following?
  • Khalid Ibrahim is lousy at the economical operations and administration of Selangor, thus an economic advisor is absolutely necessary, with Anwar Ibrahim currently monitoring and advising/guiding him?
  • Dr Wan Azizah is a great economist and would be suitable for above (Anwar's advisor) job?
  • Economic supervision or/and control of Selangor must remain with or within the Anwar Ibrahim's family?

We are aware that all's not well with the Pakatan state government of Selangor, more so with insidious sabotaging of the coalition's adhesiveness through religious issues, but alas, there have been more than willing captives to the baiting, with both PAS and the church sucked into it.

While BN has ownership of the majority of stupid statements, eg. Dr Wan Azizah is not a suitable candidate to be MB Selangor because of her haidz, we know too that Pakatan has been making some equally stupid statements, eg. PAS stating* women aren't suitable to be MB because they are women, a statement far far f^^king more stupid than the BN's moronic menstruation MB-debarment.

* The youth leader of a Malaysian opposition party has claimed the MH17 tragedy was God punishing Malaysia Airlines for serving alcohol on its flights and its “indecent” dress code.

Ahmad Tarmizi Sulaiman, the youth information chief of the opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS), said the serving of alcohol, which is prohibited under Islam, and the dress code of Malaysia Airlines flight attendants' “cross the boundaries of Islam.”


From SMH, so congratulations to PAS for making world news.



Not that I support Dr Wan Azizah* replacing Khalid Ibrahim in this MB job, but why is Khalid Ibrahim saying Unseat me through proper process?

* only because she is an unwilling politician and I fear may be manipulated by you-know-who

Doesn't Khalid Ibrahim know that he was selected/nominated as MB Selangor by his Pakatan coalition, and that when those who had nominated him has already lost confidence in him as MB, he should have the grace, dignity and conscience to pack up his bag and leave the state's CEO's position?

Why is he being so difficult to his own Pakatan colleagues, seemingly playing the jilted bloke by his uncooperative and almost hostile un-Pakatan attitude, which may suck them into a snap state election?

Does he want a showdown by what he meant, perhaps expecting HRH to then dissolve the DUN and bring about a new election? Read TMI's Selangor risks snap polls if Khalid ousted, say lawyers.

Has he been so 'advised'?


Anyway we will see soon.

But we have to acknowledge that Dr Wan Azizah is Pakatan's super sub, the term being well-known in soccer.

It refers to (Wikipedia): "Players who are noted for scoring important goals when coming off the bench or frequently making appearances as a substitute."


Dr Wan Azizah belongs to the later group, those frequently making appearances as a substitute rather than who are noted for scoring important goals when coming off the bench.

She substituted for her husband as (his ousted UMNO) faction leader after he was jailed following conviction for sodomy; she also took his position as MP for Permatang Pauh; and now she replaces him as candidate for the recent Kajang by-election, the central figure of the so-called 'Kajang Move', ...

... and let's not deny or pretend not to know that was nothing more than a political manoeuvre to mainly satisfy PKR's internal leadership struggle. Thus she is expected to sub for Anwar as the next Selangor MB.

Admittedly, Khalid Ibrahim has by then not helped much in this respect (of Pakatan especially DAP losing confidence in him) by his 'solo' behaviour as MB, which according to Pakatan perception, has nasty whiffs of being 'maverick'. For more, read
Selangor saga shows PKR's ketuanan mentality
?

Who knows, maybe he believes that he was voted directly by the people into the chair like a presidential candidate, and therefore is above and immune to the voice of his co-Pakatan ADUNs, especially the exco?

As I had previously commented on in my Khalid Ibrahim in political peril? post:

Khalid Ibrahim has discovered his personal 'enlightenment', perhaps that in the state of Selangor and under HRH's aegis, he is indispensable, irreplaceable and 'almost' presidential in stature - 'almost' because he still knows he must not be too big-headed to believe he could do without HRH's favour.

Thus, when PAS and DAP ADUNs joined PKR ADUN, to wit, PAS commissioner Dr Rani Othman, PKR chairman Mohamed Azmin Ali and DAP chairman Lau Weng San (plus party 'spiritual' wakakaka leader, Anwar Ibrahim) in criticizing him as MB for his refusal or reluctance to spend more of the state's savings on development in the state instead of just uselessly hoarding the surplus in kitty, he pompously and presidentially but pathetically responded that while he was open to criticisms from any leader, adding that it was a normal thing in the administration, he cared more about the feedback he received from the public more than from other leaders.

So, to this bloke, ADUNs are inconvenient individuals and not the people's representatives, while he 'presidentially' and directly represents all the rakyat of Selangor.

This man obviously has gotten so big-headed (but judiciously not towards HRH, wakakaka) that he believes he could ignore democracy and the parliamentary process, which has been why I describe him lamentably as being pompously presidential.

Khalid's pathetic pseudo-presidential declaration so irated DAP's Gobind Singh Deo, son of my hero Bhai Karpal, that he 'urged' (a polite euphemism for 'f**king demand', wakakaka) the Selangor MB to bloody well clarify the statement that he 'listens to criticisms from the people more than from party leaders and politicians'.

Gobind went as far as to say Khalid had made a "very serious statement, which may have serious consequences", meaning Khalid either knows f**k all about democracy (parliamentary process) or has deliberately ignored the democratic process - ya, that's why he's presidential, wakakaka!

Gobind said: "Khalid must not take things for granted. I ask him to respond and clarify matters."

The issue thus is not so much about Khalid's perceived kedukut-ness (stinginess) in managing the state funds as a MB but about his terrible failure to understand that in a democracy, the ADUNs are the ones who represent the voice of the rakyat, and not one sole person in the person of the MB, one who has preposterously claimed that he has listened more to the people than to the ADUNs, ...

... leading us to ask him 'who have been HIS people he listened more to? All the rakyat of Selangor? Or at least all those in Pakatan-held state constituency?'

It would be as if he has said he is NOT answerable to the state DUN and its ADUNs, the official, legal and democratically-elected voice of the Selangor rakyat, ...

... and that he 'listens more' to an unknown, unquantifiable 'his so-called people'.

Based on his unbelievable bodoh-sombong declaration, if we don't watch this man carefully, democracy, warts and all, will go down the Selangor drain.


But back to Dr Wan Azizah, what next for this super sub? The next PM of Malaysia? Or, like the Kajang Move, an own goal?


But wait, maybe I'm going too far ahead. Instead, let's look at her likelihood of becoming MB Selangor, a position with so many obstacles before her like male chauvinistic PAS, HRH's acceptance and approval, and of course not forgetting the Dwarf, wakakaka!

  1. I'm still not in the mood to talk politics.
    Last night I watched the live telecast on Skynews of the very sombre ceremony in Eindhoven , Holland for the arrival of the first batch of remains of the victims of the MH17shootdown. Saw Liow Tiong Lai among the group of VIPs. I will refrain from making remarks about him today.

    The Netherlands government gave a finely choreographed peformance with military honours for the dead, who have still not been identified.

    It very sad when the lone bugler played The Last Post, then the 40 coffins were brought out from the planes, one by one.

    There is still a lot of painful work to be done to identify the bodies, and recover still missing bodies (if possible).
    The vast crash site is essentially lawless country. Pressure is rapidly building in Netherlands and Australia to get some form of multi-national peacekeeping force to secure the crash so that the investigators can do the job. Malaysia may be invited to join as well.
    They may need to go back to the UN Security Council to get authorisation for that force.

    1. Yes, very sad indeed, especially when informed there are 80 (!) children on board that doomed MH17, and some newly married going on their honeymoons.

      An article by Keith Darden "Why Russia Is Not The Real Problem" might give another perspective to the Ukraine problem - http://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/141182/keith-darden/how-to-save-ukraine

  2. Despite all yr rants here in this write-up, u finally shown yr carefully disguised misogynistic trace!

    Whatever u'd tried to hit at Azizah, even thought yr true intention is bull-eyeing Anwar, one CANT help to read yr mistrust about that wonderful woman, san reluctant politician!

    U just keep saying she would be puppeteered by the man behind her. How dare u? U dont know that woman & her sacrifices & determination! For those who know, SHE is way above yr SYTs of Marina & Michelle.

    No need to go into grandmother story, Philippine's Cory Aquino is a good recent example of reluctant politician coming out top! So just mind yr words!!!!

    WRT Khalid, he has to go, just for gaining his pound of loot, in the form of the easy settling of his personal bank loan - never mind about his other plunders in water management, Kindex & PJ Sentral fiasco.

    So, is yr point of writing this piece - just to vent yr Anwar bashing for another go?

    U have not contribute ANY viable solution, instead u unknowingly (hopefully) &/or deliberately (likely) WANT to play for the fall of Selangor back to umno.

    I wont call u a hypocrite, BUT definitely someone with a BIG bruised ego just like that Miss Muppet or yr half-anmoh sifu?

    Yes???????

  3. Every state has controversial issues that take forever to resolve. The spotlight is always on Selangor and her golden egg of RM3 Billion that came about through prudent governance under TS Khalid. We Selangorites want him to continue but respect his wish to complete his term.

    The biggest shark these days is Anwar and his school of sharkettes and their bullsh*t attempts to con Selangorites into believing we need a new MB. And all to serve their own agenda.

    I am pleased that our PAS brothers have come out to endorse TS Khalid after being misquoted repeatedly by PKR.

    Enough lah Anwar. Retire into the sunset! You are an embarrassing spectacle and leader of umno clones.

    I look forward to a PAS MB when the TS Khalid retires.

    Long Live HRH Sultan of Selangor!
