KUALA LUMPUR, July 28 — DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang today called out Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi today for contradicting statements he made in regards to Umno rejecting cooperation with leaders who are in “cahoots” with DAP.
Lim was referring to a statement made by the Umno president that the party will reject any offer to cooperate with PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as long as he has any kind of ties with DAP.
“Ahmad Zahid has become a classic case of a political leader whose statements frequently boomerang on him. His latest and second smacking of PKR president again had this boomerang effect on himself.
“Zahid may suffer from short-term memory. It was only a week ago that Zahid insinuated that Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was a stooge of DAP,” he said in a statement today.
Lim pointed out that PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang had yesterday said that his party will work to keep Dr Mahathir as prime minister for the full term, denying any handover of power to Anwar as agreed by the Pakatan Harapan consensus in January 2018.
“What a political comedown — from expecting to kick ‘DAP stooge Mahathir’ out as prime minister to “working to keep Mahathir for the full term.
“I must congratulate Umno and PAS leaders for their inability to see the irony and contradiction they have trapped themselves, but that is another story.
“I want to ask Zahid whether he will now obey the PAS president’s new line to work to keep Dr Mahathir as prime minister for the full term,” Lim questioned.
Not that I want to see/hear Lim Kit Siang silenced and STFU, but other than being MenHEN (specialising in harassing an already fallen man) he is a very quarrelsome person, ceaselessly picking on trivial issues or statements by BN politicians to cross swords with. He seems to forget he is no longer in the Opposition and should talk on important policy matters or government intentions and plans.
If Zahid showed he is an idiot in what he says, let that idiot be. Why debate with an idiot to demonstrate how 'clever' Lim KS is?
There are far more important issues at hand than to show or prove that an idiot is an idiot. Lim KS just loves to quarrel and undoubtedly misses his previous enjoyment at verbal stabbing at and of Mahathir, but now Atuk has become his Boss to protect with Kerbau stuff like "I did not say Mahathir was corrupt" - what a hypocrite - he preys on idiots.
Meanwhile in Chemor Perak, poor farmers just have their land which they have worked on for more than 40 years confiscated by an old UMNO hand who has become the MB of Perak, Ahmad Faizal Azumu, by virtue of Mahathir arbitrarily nominating him to be MB Perak even though Parti Pribumi won only one seat in the state of Perak in GE14 - yes, I'm not mistaken in saying he was in UMNO but jumped over to Pribumi just in time for the last general elections.
Azumu still shows all the attributes of an UMNO bloke in the way he has been handling affairs in the state. It's not only poor Chinese farmers who will receive the blunt of his pribumi-ish policies (which sees land seized from poor farmers by Azumu to be GIVEN away as GIFTS to state footballers, some of whom have never use a changkol-hoe before in their entire lives), but Perakians shall consider themselves lucky if there are trees still standing in reserve forest lands by GE15.
Then in other states, there are unresolved issues like water, radioactive debris, plastic waste, infrastructure developments, ete ete etc. Yet Yang Berhormat Lim Kit Siang sees fit to argue a la syiok sendiri with a mumbling bumbling crumbling UMNO man who even in/at his best has never been an orator.
Lim Kit Siang will do us a favour if he resigns and retires if he thinks his main job as an elected parliamentarian is to cari pasal, and very small insignificant pasal with Ahmad Zahid, more so when he has just chickened out from a debate with Najib. Podah Lim KS.
