Terence Netto, a pro Anwar journalist, has just written the virtual obituary for PKR as a so-called reformist party.
According to Netto, PKR knows but refuses to admit it cannot commit to the struggle of Pakatan Harapan whilst whoring at the same time with PH's foe PAS; additionally, by its inexplicable insistent embrace of incompatible body-politics, PKR under Azmin thus lacks a meaningful ideology.
Netto calls that lack a 'void in PKR's ideology', a troubling descriptive characteristic for a serious political party, and more appropriate for an opportunistic agency.
Netto sneers at PKR's continuing embrace of a disdainful PAS who has already shown utter contempt for Azmin Ali's party, hence describing PKR as 'beggars unabashed by their alms-asking'.
Netto even doubts PKR has the fundamental basic of human-political pride to protest against PAS' sheer arrogance and demonstrated ulamak-repugnance at a begging unwanted slut.
Netto laments the end of the party of so-called Reformasi, with his last sentence a virtual dirge for a political party once known as the Last Hope of Malaysians, namely:
"Suffice to say, the party of the populist swell for Reformasi two decades ago is morphing into one for the defence of factional interests and calculation".
Indeed, it's just factional interests calculated by a calculative calculator, wakakaka.
For the original PKR, I dedicate the following poem Tapestry by Modupe Sefunmi:
To thee I sing a dirge,
As I behold the mangled sight,
Pity, I couldn't turn back the hand of clock, or
Edit the disfigured pattern,
So grotesque as I watch, the
Time-worn piece in my front,
Reminding me of those far away years,
You came to be by my skilful hands.
