PKR - hopeless as ever

TMI - PKR sidesteps PAS call to make stand on GHB, says friends with all

caught between Scylla and Charybdis

but unlike Odysseus, gutless and evasive

PKR is renowned for its evasive, elusive, secretive side stepping, tap dancing, and manmanlai manoeuvres when it comes to its firm commitment to policies, ideologies, alliances and agreements, as it did to DAP in Selangor during the exco appointments after the GE-13 state elections. In my post Selangor saga shows PKR's ketuanan mentality? I wrote of how it played out DAP:

... Khalid Ibrahim did what would be considered
ungentlemanly before he left for abroad, in unilaterally announcing via just a cowardly tweet the revised composition of the Selangor exco, which saw the agreed four exco positions for DAP reduced to three. 

Couldn’t he have phoned DAP to advise his reason for the amendments, but then, we have been familiar with the lamentable PKR habit, of making unilateral decisions or policies on Pakatan (not PKR) issues, with their allies only learning of them via the media.

Thus it left Tony Pua, DAP Selangor deputy chief, bewildered on what was obviously an overturning of a Pakatan agreement on the exco composition. And of course Khalid Ibrahim was conveniently not around to answer why there was been a change to DAP’s disadvantage.

But from HRH’s revelation via his private secretary that Khalid Ibrahim had submitted the exco nominations to the palace prior to his departure for overseas, it would suggest that his tweeted message had already reflected the list submitted to HRH, lending doubts as to whether there was even a second list with the 5:5 racial ratio.

Be that as it was, even if HRH required a 6:4 makeup in the state exco, that would have been easily fulfilled with the four PAS members and two from PKR, which would still allow DAP to staff the exco with four of its assemblypersons. 

Be that as its manmanlai DNA has been and may be, I wonder how long it can continue to weave its deceptive way around PAS, GHB and DAP.

One thing it proves, nay, confirms is that it is still the weakest and sneakiest link in Pakatan 1.0 and 2.0, and shows it needs all the help it can, like a thirsty vampire, suck out of PAS and DAP, and even GHB.

How could Wan Azizah
 with such blithe ignorance of the situation between PAS and DAP and PAS and GHB,  so casually bring herself to say, "We are all friends. We are open when it comes to our common struggle."

"We are friends as we have a common policy framework shared by everyone who is of the same mind, including the rakyat who care about the national crisis affecting the country."

"All who are of the same view, we welcome them to be with us in the struggle to find a solution to the economic and political problems we are facing."

Where has she been for the last several months to say "... we have a common policy framework ..."? Huh?!

What common struggle was she talking about when PAS has clearly shown it has already abandoned the political objective of defeating UMNO?

Who are the 'friends' she had in mind? Has she so easily forgotten how PAS had objected to her being MB for Selangor?

But it does show she's only the new coalition leader because she's the wife of Anwar Ibrahim. She's unworthy of that crucial leadership role. And in this regard, I find it increasingly difficult to blame PAS for objecting to her as the MB candidate to replace Khalid Ibrahim.

Azmin Ali has been no better, avoiding the unavoidable issue of choosing either PAS or GHB, and PAS or DAP! Look, the PAS and DAP boats have already sailed towards different directions and any persistent attempt to still retain a foot on each vessel will end up with him rendered asunder real kangkang.

I suppose I have to grudgingly admit it's at times like this I miss (though not much) the more confident leadership and personality of Anwar Ibrahim, wakakaka.


  1. this is how msian or even asian talk. dap n kt is too westernised to understand.

    pkr baling bola balik bagi haron. bec one day some pas fella may claim pkr force them to join umno. so fren fren is a better way to tell u do whatever u like la, we already have a common policy framework, u share the framework, good, if not, we cant do much. if u want to join umno, please do so.

    only budak talk cut ties here cut ties there, i do this when i was in std 3, so u know how old is lge n haron. pkr is not a childish party la. btw hadi n haron is the staunch supporters of najib, the imdb chairman, i understand y they talk like budak not to reveal their priority, the love to pm wakaka. but lge i dun know la, maybe he still have fond memory of his primary school day how he cut ties with the girl sit next to him.

    1. very valiant but childish (kindergarten) defence of his party to disguise the fact that pkr has no principle, no balls, wakakaka

  2. I don't agree with Lim Guan Eng's "Are you with us or Against us ?" approach.
    PKR isn't directly involved in the PAS vs. DAP quarrel, and the PAS vs. GHB dustup.

    Nothing wrong with Wan wanting to keep the Selangor State government in place.
    Causing the Selangor State Gov't to fall has been The Pirate of Putrajaya's objective right from his first day as Crime Minister. Not controlling Penang may be an embarrassment, but Penang is really a sideshow. The Real Game is gaining control of Selangor.
    Why should we follow the The Pirate of Putrajaya's game book ?

    1. ya, BUT how stable will such a manmanlai situation be?

    2. How stable country is when your chao cibai Najib clinging to his PM ship? Like that monty python's parrot sketch

      Mr. Praline: 'E's not pinin'! 'E's passed on! This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! 'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed 'im to the perch 'e'd be pushing up the daisies! 'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!!

      Pukimak Kaytee,
      I thought you are interested in fairplay. Yet you are fuckingly silent on that total media ban by Najib's government. Why?

    3. why? because Tong has shown he might have a 'conflict of interest'

      Malaysiakini is NOT banned, TMI owned by The Edge's owner is NOT banned, Malay Mail Online is NOT banned

    4. Based on what Muhyiddin revealed yesterday, what The Edge and Sarawak Report have reported are far more credible than anything the Cabinet Ministers have blurted our and / or what rubbish The NST or The Star have published.

      Basically, the Cabinet and the various official sources know nuts about the 1MDB issue.

  3. I am inclined to sympathize with PKR given their lack of majority to keep the Selangor government in place without either DAP. Or PAS Aduns support. Either DAP or PAS walk away from PKR, there will be no majority in Selangor. PKR leaders are walking on extremely thin ice now, like having to choose between your wife and your mother in their dispute.
    However, there are now 3 PAS votes joining GHB, who are opposed by PAS. So PAS now has only 13, same number as PKR. Therefore. DAP now holds the most votes with 15 and GHB is DAP friendly, that makes 18. Who then would PKR likely to team up with? Pas 13 plus Umno 13, they become opposition in Selangore.

  4. Over at Penag, the moment PAS officially sack GHB 18, LGE would most likely sack all PAS reps from their positions and most likely give them to GHB members. Those income plus the 3 In Selangor would give GHB a head start in representations and can self finance their set up as a political party. That is why PAS is reluctant to sack those who are now openly in GHB. They can only shout and warn, but not act.
