Shouldn’t Anwar be obligated to fulfill promises and the rest of us focus on the real big agenda?



Former abuse of power convict and now Opposition Leader in the Dewan Rakyat (despite not being a member of any party) Anwar Ibrahim lives up to expectations in harping and capitalizing on the recent defection of an UMNO/BN State Assemblyman into PKR. As expected, he would make further sensational carpe diem announcements, in seizing the moment.

Anwar claims more BN reps to defect (updated)


KLANG: Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim claims his plans are still on track and more Barisan Nasional elected representatives would cross over to Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).

Saying it would occur on a “bi-weekly basis from next month” onwards, the PKR adviser said people have made up their minds and “it’s only a matter of time.”

Anwar told a crowd at the a Chinese New Year celebration held at the Hokkien Association Hall here that “change was imminent and we will surprise you from time to time.”

“Now the ox has come in, just be patient … we are working hard just like the ox,” he said at the event that was organised by Selangor information chief Datin Paduka Dr Tan Yee Kew, in reference to it being the Lunar Year of the Ox.

After the Opposition’s strong showing in the general election last march, Anwar had promised that he had more than 30 Barisan MPs ready to cross over to the Pakatan Rakyat alliance by Sept 16.

None did and since failing to meet his own deadline, the former deputy prime minister’s voice had been relatively muted on the crossover issue until the defection of Bota assemblyman Datuk Nasaruddin Hashim on Sunday, who quit Umno to join PKR.

In IPOH, Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin claimed that three more assemblymen could be crossing over from Umno.

He said talks were in progress between Pakatan and the three, who had approached the alliance following Nasarudin’s defection on Sunday.

“They came forward to meet us without us inviting them,” Nizar said after attending the Perak DAP Chinese New Year open house here Monday.

He however declined to reveal the identities of the three or which parties they had approached, alleging that they could be threatened.

Asked what the chances were of the three actually joining Pakatan, Nizar said there was a 50-50 chance.


Whether or not one or two more BN elected representatives defecting to the Oppositions would not significantly affect the balance of power, be it in the Dewan Rakyat or any of the State Assemblies. The unholy alliance of ‘marriage of convenience’ parties might benefit from little moral victories from such defections but that is the extend of the damage.


The real issues the rakyat should focus is Anwar “The Compulsive Liar” Ibrahim must make good of his promises. First it was the 14 April 2008 “Black 14” rally in Kelab Sultan Sulaiman padang, where he proclaimed that the Pakatan Rakyat – PR (a sordid re-packaging of once failed Barisan Alternatif) would be forming the Federal Government within the soonest period of two weeks. Then, it was the 16 September 2008 deadline of taking over from BN to run the country.

For starters, not everyone within the flimsy partnership of PR is comfortable with the defection model, let alone the game, to come into legitimate power. DAP for one would insist of gaining the power out of proper election process rather than hauling up defecting BN representatives. They would strongly work on the premature dissolution of any State Assemblies and/or Dewan Rakyat and contest in elections. This would give DAP’s ascension to power the political legitimacy and pride.

Shouldn’t the rakyat sternly demand that Anwar make good of all these promises made first, before ‘allowing’ him to make anymore statements of future undertakings?

Then again, it only shows the rakyat wholesomely accepted that Anwar is nothing but a Compulsive Liar. He has no sense of responsibility to make good of any of his earlier undertakings, proclamations and/or promises, something he continuously do without any shred of decency and shame. Of course, he would also continuously craft any damning excuse to justify, even though most of them have been coyly regarded as insulting the intelligence of the the average Malaysian.


This ‘deception political model’ inadvertently proven Anwar as someone who should not be trusted. However, his manipulative oratory skills managed to ‘blind’ and ‘halucinate’ the mind of the simpletons within the rakyat. Especially when Anwar capitalise on the cliche’ of “people are simply suckers of nonsenseness!”. Hence, he continuously re-packaged himself with more sensationalization and dramatization, both acting as an enigma of ‘first strike weapon’ and ‘pre-emptive/defense mechanism’. Who is best to learn of all these from if not from the Ne0-Con Jewish communities in Washington D.C.

The fact that Anwar is not a member of any of the political parties within he PR  guild has completely eluded everyone’s focus. How could PR parties in consensus agree to make him the Opposition Leader of the Dewan Rakyat when he is not even a legitimate member in any of these political organisations? Doesn’t it occur in anyone’s tiniest brain processing capabilities that the fact that Anwar isn’t legally part of PR means that he is keeping his options wide open to return back into UMNO, the real and most probable odds for him to become the legitimate Malaysian Prime Minister?

That could only spell out clearly one thing; Anwar is ONLY interested in becoming the Prime Minister at any cost, regardless which ever avenue presents itself first. This had been a lifelong ‘wet dream’ of someone who almost made it there (at least as the Acting Prime Minister), till fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad abruptly ended all that in one sweeping stroke on 2 September 1998. Anwar deployed the ‘intellectual anarchy’ strategies and tactics as the perfect model to realise this dream, even to a point of causing chaos and topsy-turvy in society known for  its civility and mannerism.

We the rakyat should stand up against this Compulsive Liar and his endless  and continuous game of deception, manipulation and distortion of facts, riding on expectations and charging on emotions. As an aspiring Prime Minister, has Anwar ever talked about the failing Western capital and financial institutions, downsizing of manufacturing and thus importation of Malaysian made semi completed products, which will adversely impair the economy? How about the downsizing and closure of many manufacturing operations, including based in PR controlled states like Selangor, Penang and Perak, which will make Malaysian workforce redundant? That is far from any short to medium term plans of economic stimulus packages to help in the more liquid sectors of the service and retail industries.

These real issues slipped everyone’s mind and attention when Anwar talk about his deception model politics. Penang, a PR controlled state is expected to be plagued with a reduction of its manufacturing sector by up to 10%, due to the global economic slump. For an economy which is 30% of the Malaysian GDP, that should be something to be worried about. And yet for someone who keeps harping of taking over the management of the nation soon, Anwar never spoke about this and the rakyat conveniently never demanded him for this thoughts (regardless how he is able to ridicule the nation when he presents his case). The attention of a responsible and genuine leader should be on the worrisome report of one million Malaysians would be made jobless  from the economic downturn, which include voters of his own constituency and homestate, instead on the  TUDM S61 Nuri utility helicopter replacement contract.

We have bigger issues to put this nation on the right track, in the wake of a really bad global economic recession presenting itself on our doorstep very soon. At any cost, we have no time to ‘play ball’ with someone who has done and plan nothing but cause further distraction, distortion and/or diversion of everyone’s attention, resources and faith of the system. Thus, the focus should be on the real issues, problems and of course solutions available and should be planned and sought.

This is the pertinent agenda. This is the priority resolution to determine our survival in one of the worst test in modern history. So lets get on with it!
