;-) tell me why I’m not surprised at all wakakaka.
After pontificating on the PAS win in Bukit Gantang as a sure-fire indication of the public’s rejection of Najib as PM (aiyoyo, someone’s jealous as hell, wakakaka), he made me wonder ...
... whether the BN win in Batang Ai was an indication too of the Sarawakian’s rejection of him as an alternate PM - afterall, Anwar has positioned Sarawak as his frontline State to secure majority rule in 2013.
A well-known sweetie blogger and I had a chitchat yesterday while we were waiting for the results, and laughed at the numerous but idiotic references to the by-elections as a referendum for this bloke and that bloke, mainly Najib and Dr Mahathir …..
… when those have been nothing more than by-elections, each with more than one issue influencing the voters’ choice.
For example, many Chinese in Bukit Gantang were out to show their wrath for the betrayal by former DAP Hee. Calling her a defector or frog would be very polite terms, compared to what those local Chinese have been describing her. The Chinese anti-Hee-pro-PAS surge went up to more than 75%.
Another example of local issue/factor was in PAS' admittance in Malaysiakini PAS admits dip in Malay votes that it lost 4% of its 2008 share of the heartland's votes in the Bukit Gantang because, according to PAS Perak deputy chief and elections director Asmuni Awi, BN's Ismail Saffian was seen by Malay voters as a local boy.
And as we (sweetie blogger and kaytee wakakaka) concluded, each side of politics would spin their way to fantasy … as in … we won, they lost, public has passed a damning verdict on them, oh we lost coz there was cheating … wakakaka.
Hey, the BN could claim that Batang Ai was a referendum on Anwar's suitability as an alternate PM ;-)
But whatever, the by-elections are now over so … do you still remember what Anwar Ibrahim promised us once the by-elections were over?
Please refer to my post Anwar Ibrahim's earth-shattering 'BIG' announcement on Sunday 05 April 09, where ...
... according to Malaysiakini PKR: Mass defections from Kedah PPP, some 300 PPP members (and not 6,000 as we were initially informed by pro PKR sources) have defected over to PKR.
PKR election campaign strategist, Saifuddin Nasution, had informed journalists to turn up en masse for the earth-shattering news by Anwar, which was said to have a ‘direct or indirect bearing’ on Najib Abdul Razak becoming the prime minister …
… or face the wrath of their editors for missing out on the PKR's defining watershed announcement, but …
… when the press saw it was only a pffffft case of 300 PPP members defecting to PKR, they grumbled ‘was that all? And PPP on top of that?’
So to stop their disdainful sneering comments (as reported by Malaysiakini) the consummate (wah!) PKR leader said that it would have to wait until after Tuesday's by-election.
"The timing is not right now. It could be dangerous," he said in his ceramah at Dewan Hock Teik Soo, Sungai Petani, which is part of the Bukit Selambau state constituency.
The Great Reformer said: "I was to make an announcement tonight but after a discussion last night, we have decided that it is too dangerous to do it now. When we win the three by-elections on April 7, then I will make the announcement."
Today when reporters asked him about his supernova ‘big announcement’ that will screw Najib up kau kau, guess what startling news did we get from him?
That he has his numbers finally, the crucial 31 MPs to effect 916?
Or, he has evidence that his Nemesis murdered Altantuyaa Shariibuu?
Pffffft again - We were informed by Malaysiakini Anwar said that he had actually made a big announcement in Bukit Selambau in regards to the defections of PPP members into PKR.
"We announced the virtual dissolution of Kedah PPP. Isn't that a major announcement?" he asked.
And this is the person you trust to be your next PM?
As I said in the comment section in my post Najib, Anwar - 2 B
I don't think Ong Ka Ting is a man one wants to quote for succinct statements but having said that, Ong had been spot on at least on one occasion, when he described Anwar as a person "who talks human talk to humans and ghost talk to ghosts."
The added danger is Anwar has been gifted with a silver tongue that he's quite capable of convincing people of whatever he chooses to project himself as. Take for example, his reformasi - was that compatible with his froggie campaign and 916?
Yet, despite his arrogant discarding of his reformasi mask in that raw grab for power from what he thought to be low brow AAB (someone he considers below his intellect), many still believe he is a reformer, and even attempt to justify his deformasi conduct.
No wonder in Malaysia we frequently hear of gullible (and well educated) women allowing themselves to be shagged by low brow Chinese mediums, bomohs and rascals. Those women had wanted to believe in the same way Anwar's supporters want to believe.
In some ways I feel sad for them.
... for being prepared to be shagged over and over again.
