malaysiakini malaysia-today anwar by-election permatang pauh tun mahathir abdullah badawi khairy nalla ezam
PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim may have won the Permatang Pauh seat and claimed his stake in Parliament, but he would not be able to get 30 MPs to switch to the Opposition to form the government, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said.
The former prime minister said the Parti Keadilan Rakyat adviser might think he could “buy” MPs to jump to his camp but it would be impossible for him to “outbid the other bidders who have more money.”
“I don’t think Abdullah is a match for Anwar. This man (Anwar) can convince even the devil to follow him. He is going to raise all kinds of issues and questions and will demand and pressure the Prime Minister for answers. It is going to be a tough time for Barisan,” he said.
Let’s see…. do we practice MP buying in Malaysia? BN been buying MPs all these while? or they won’t have problem to use tax-payers money to buy Opposition MPs as well?
Well… that’s not important what’s important and really sounds interesting is that Anwar can convince the Devil to follow him! If that’s the case I’m sure Malaysians won’t mind having such a powerful leader to lead the country rather than a la-la leader that can’t even convince his own party people! Who wants a weak leader— NO ONE LA!!! Imagine we have a leader that even US of A is willing to listen to… WOW! or our leader calling the shots while other nations follow? How’s that for a leader? Ain’t bad for a Leader even the Devil want to follow.
No— don’t get me wrong as an Anwar lover… no no politics is politics and I’m not into politics or any political party cause me ain’t no follower. Wanna know something more interesting than the Devil and his Master? Well imagine if Anwar can convince the Devil, what say you if he convinced some of his best friends to play play with Pak Lah and Umno? Imagine if Mr.Nollah oops! Nalla is just roleplaying? Imagine if Ezam is to dive into the flames of Umno for his good pal? How about the chanting Chandra in Harry Potter’s magic cloak? all for roleplay sake to make Umno think they have the upper hand on Anwar.
If Anwar can convince the Devil, would it make sense for Chandra, Nalla, Ezam to no be convinced as well? or are they be so convinced untill they are willing to take the heat of the public and former friends to make the show real? Trojans know very well you can’t win the war from the outside. Raja Petra made it known if Umno were to fall it would be from inside.
Now in every game there’s a wildcard… imagine if Khairy isn’t what we all think he is. Imagine if he’s the hidden Gollum that opens the trap door to the hasten the fall of Umno and BN? how’s that for a Alfred Hitchcock classic twist in the story of ‘Anwar – Road to Putrajaya’.
Well all this may be a figment of imagination, if you want to know the truth then ask the Devil … if you are willing to trade your soul, you too may find your door in Putrajaya.
