Conspiracy Theories in K Hell
The conspiracy theories coming out of K Hell is making my head spin. Go throw a stone in a crowd of politicians and you can be sure that the politician on whose head the stone lands will be the only politicians NOT involved in any conspiracy theory. All the other politicians are either involved in a conspiracy, thinking of starting a conspiracy, trying to get into a conspiracy, or had just failed in one. None of these politicians, and I repeat, none of these politicians, are doing what they have been elected to do…and that is serving the rakyat! They are living in a parallel world to us but keep intruding into our world much too often for our liking.
Let us take stock of our situation.
Who is Prime Minister today…30th September 2020…yes I have to be that precise! Din is. Who will be Prime Minister next week? Depends on who you are asking. Anwar Ibrahim tells us that he will be. Muhyiddin is sure that he will still be. Najib is wishing that he can be. And there are two or three others who are scheming to be. To be or not to be PM is one conspiracy that all other conspiracies are linked to. It is the mother of all conspiracies in Malaysia because, in Malaysia, the winner takes it all. If you are the prime minister, if you are Chief Minister of Sabah, if you are President of Umno…if you are the incumbent of anything substantial….that is the position many are fighting for because the incumbent is the fountain of contacts, “business opportunities”, and just plain cash! All roads lead to the incumbent. Look at Din. His party has the least number of seats in the back door government and yet as Prime Minister, he got his appointees in Cabinets, in State government, in GLC’s and as we can see over the weekend…he also has got Sabah covered pretty well! Bersatu nominee is the MB of Perak, the Chief Minister of Sabah, and, the most cutting of all to Umno, the Prime Minister is also from Bersatu. Where does that put Umno? Where does that put the President of Umno, Zahid Hamidi?
Not in a very good place!
So what other conspiracy theories have you heard?
PKR on its own steam does not have the numbers to take over Din’s back door government. So who is sponsoring Anwar Ibrahim’s quixotic tilt at the Prime Minister’s post? Why do I say “quixotic”? DSAI wants to be Prime Minister and he has made the “LANGKAH” towards being the PM twice before….so this will be his third tilt at the PM’s post. The first two tilts at being the Alpha Political Male in Bolehland failed miserably because not only did those plans not have merit, more critically, as the Malays say…”hajat hati nak peluk gunung, apakah daya tangan tak sampai”
Stay with me guys while I try to figure this out. Anwar says he has a “formidable and convincing” support from a number of MPs to form a majority government. Where does he get the “formidable” support from? MP’s from Umno? Which MP from Umno will have the courage to leave Umno, the largest political faction in the back door Government, to align themselves with Anwar Ibrahim to go against TSMY? None! Unless they get the nod from their President Zahid Hamidi, to do so. And then what I think they will do is to still stay with Umno but declare their support for Anwar. So is Umno and Anwar Ibrahim in cahoots to take Government from TSMY. The plot thickens. But then we hear Hishamuddin say “Ministers who don’t support Muhyiddin should resign”. And Lokman Adam, who gets his fulos from Kepitman and Flom, gave Umno’s President Zahid Hamidi, seven days to take Umno out of PN or he will be replaced as Umno’s president. All strong words indeed. So if the MP’s siding with Anwar had got the green light from their President to do so, why is the President now under pressure to support Muhyiddin who looks like he is going to be ousted by Anwar Ibrahim who is in turn being supported by Umno? And why has Bossku let his dogs out to savage Zahid Hamidi when they are all in Umno together? Musuh dalam selimut? Eu Tu Brutus? Another Langkah Sheraton, this time on their own Umno president, Zahid Hamidi, by Umno’s own? Or is Zaid Hamidi pulling all the strings to rid himself and Umno of TSMY? And once that is done, how far down the road will Umno then rid itself of Anwar Ibrahim?
Now, what of DAP? They say they will support DSAI as PM if he has the numbers to be PM. Anwar can only have the numbers if Umno allows their MPs to align themselves with Anwar. So if Anwar becomes PM it is with Umno’s help…and then only will DAP join the government. DAP joining a government in which Umno has control over? Really? When pigs fly! That is never going to happen. Any Umno President working with Umno’s sworn enemy, DAP, will find himself out of Umno quicker than the time Azmin took in putting together the Sheraton Move. Which begs the question, does DAP know where Anwar if getting his “formidable” support from? Sarawak maybe. Not possible. In short Anwar better not count DAP as part of his “formidable” team because Umno will not stand for DAP being in any government they are part of.
What other conspiracy is possible.What about the only Umno leader who is “clean”…its Deputy President Mohammad Hassan? Where does he stand in all these “conspiracies”. By his public statements, he has not indicated his stand in all that is happening around him but you can be sure that the man whom Tun Mahathir brought into Umno and had him installed as MB Negri Sembilan, is watching everything with a practiced and patient eye. He can afford to wait. He has time and he knows his time will come to be President of Umno and whatever else that comes with it.
Enough for now with these conspiracy tales. It is all I can do to keep track of the goings-on in Bolehland…but track it all I will try. And what I can share with you guys I will share. On your part…please share with me what you know but please guys…no fake news. I know that any politician with an agenda does manufacture their own truths to serve their own purpose and those guys who write for money are not only creative but creativity with spin can even make the best of us wonder if what we are reading is truth or fiction. The best advice I can give about these things is simply this…common sense and some use of your grey matter will go a long way towards flushing out the truth.Kan?
