I refer to the Malaysiakini report Defections: Why Pakatan should wait.
Anwar Ibrahim promised the people through press conferences, ceramah and public statements when campaigning in the recent general election that he will eradicate all form of corruption when he comes into power.
In 1994, when he was the Deputy PM to Tun Mahatir’s Government, Anwar was known to have orchestrated the cross-over by Sabah’s PBS newly elected MPs and state assembly persons to BN. He thought he was smart, although many others thought otherwise simply because this was unfair to the electorate in Sabah.
In the past weeks Anwar again revealed his true-self when he admitted that he was indeed negotiating with BN newly elected MP’s with the obvious subject of ‘cross-over’ to his camp.
In his manifesto for the recent election, he proclaimed to all and sundry that when he comes into power, his top priority is to eradicate corruption but even before the new parliament is convened he was already up to his old self – offering BN MPs material gain for them to cross-over to his camp.
Of course, he denied that there discussions on any ‘trading’ in his talks on the cross-overs but surely they cannot be talking and negotiating the price of Dayak or Iban hats – please Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim don’t belittle our intelligence.
The fact that he has admitted negotiating with the newly elected MPs to cross-over itself shows he would not hesitate to betray the electorate to serve his selfish ends. Such a corrupt practice is the highest form of corruption and stinks to the highest heaven.
It would be interesting for Anwar Ibrahim to explain that despite his promise of clean government, he is now resorting to unethical and immoral ways to get the very people he condemned and accused of corruption to join him.
For goodness sake give us a break. Surely the people can see his true intention. All he wants is the prime minister-ship and the power that goes with it.
Why are all the leaders of the BN component parties (except for the prime minister) suddenly so quiet to such a happening? Have all of them been so badly beaten that they have lost their voice even over such a serious matter?
To quote Martin Luther King Jr: ‘Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter’. Speak up and tell the people! Your country expects all of you to do your duty.
kaytee has done his wee bit!
