Why has Anwar’s decision to contest in Kajang caused so much upheaval inside the BN camp? More so in Umno? This is just a DUN seat. As Muhyidin says, when Anwar wins, at the most he can only be MB. Najib is still the PM.
Umno says it’s protecting the people of Selangor. From what? Mahathir says no one is safe if Anwar is MB.
Hmmm – maybe. Perhaps there’s some truth in what Mahathir said. I did feel shivers down my spine when I participate in a talk with Anwar especially with my back facing him. Haha. I must remember to wear an iron chastity belt the next time. Umno people – please remember that too.
No one who has stolen from the state, no one who is corrupt, and no one who has emptied the treasury will be safe. My own uneasiness dissipates when I think that no treasury, no money is safe when Umno people are around. No public works are safe with Umno people around. These are dangerous people to be around, these Umno people.
Even with projects involving the defence of the country. In Banteng there’s a small shipyard called NGV – Tech Sdn Bhd. It was given a contract to build 2 units of training ships for the navy. The ships cost the government RM943 million. Sometime in December 2012, Rosmah Mansor christened one of them. Then in February 2013, Siti Hasmah christened the other one.
What happened to the ships? Both were not completed. The company went under. It’s now under receivership. So the Umno minister in charge of defence is quietly tendering out (closed tender of course) the completion of the ships. That will cost a few hundred million ringgits more. That navy chief who agreed to give the contract to the shipyard, he will certainly not be safe. Whoever the minister who ordered the contract given to the shipyard, is not going to be safe either.
So, I agree with Dr Mahathir. No one is safe when Anwar around.
We ask Anwar why he wants to contest in Kajang. He answers because Kajang is on the way to Putrajaya. Maybe he plans to build a special toll for anyone from the Mines travelling to Putrajaya. It must be a special one designed by world class architect. Maybe Anwar will call in I.M Pei. That way if anyone from there wants to go to Putrajaya to look up the PM for the time being, the person has to pay toll.
Malays after all liked to be punished and disciplined. They derive pleasure from pain. They will protest and demonstrate when the opposition demands tolls be abolished. They protest and demonstrate insisting they want to pay PTPTN when their children can get free education.
The Malays are rich people despite the fact that the bottom 40% of Malay earns RM1300 per month. Despite the fact that the bottom 40% share 12% of the total Malay income.
Yeah, bebe… spank me more, whip me more.
If as Tun Daim says, Anwar never solves any problems, isn’t that good for Umno. Next time, they can always point out that Anwar has been a useless ADUN for Kajang. How many years did useless Anwar serve the government?
Even before the by-election in Kajang, people are already benefiting. Suddenly with Anwar planning to contest in Kajang, BN has awoken from their slumber and remember that the Kajang hospital is 102 years old. They will build a new one. But please do it through open tender yes. Otherwise the minister, the MOF people, the tender committee will all not be safe when Anwar comes around.
The Jais issue with Bibles, the cow-head issue, all the other issues caused by Umno’s agent provocateurs are suddenly muted. That’s how good Anwar is.
We must save Kajang and Selangor because Anwar is not fit morally, bellowed people from Perkasa. Chew Mei Fun has more moral scruples than Anwar charged Ibrahim Ali.
But what about the morality within Umno? The morality in Umno is a cesspool. The limbahan or water trap behind my late grandmother’s house in Pekan, has got more morality. Sometime that limbahan was where all the effluent and other unmentionable discharge flowed into. That has got more morality than Umno. So don’t Umno come to us to talk about morality.
Umno is acutely aware that when Anwar takes Kajang, it’s a matter of time Anwar takes the whole of Selangor. All the five parliamentary seats and the 12 state seats. Selangor will be beyond the reach of Umno and BN.
Suppose this by-election needs to be carried out because Anwar wants to solve PKR’s internal problem. What is wrong with that? Not doing anything about it is even worse. Khalid and Azmin may not see eye to eye. They can’t stand the sight of each other. But both can accept Anwar.
So why not Anwar steps in to establish peace and get on with managing the state better? Khalid can still serve in a substantive capacity and Azmin can become a senior exco. Let us not make our dislike for Azmin and our preference for Khalid caused us to forget that our bigger enemy is BN. – sakmongkol.blogspot.com, February 27, 2014.
