Kerajaan tak Jatuh. Jadi siapa yang Jatuh?
Kerajaan TSMY sudah “jatuh” tapi, the last time I checked, that back door kerajaan masih berkerja!
Should DSAI cease and desists suggesting the same thing or does he think that a lie, a white lie, or a half-truth, when repeated often enough, will, in the eyes of a few, become a truth? I will not even hazard a guess that DSAI thinks that way for if I do, then I am inferring that DSAI is a fool. And you and I know that DSAI is not a fool. He is, in the eyes of many, the PM in waiting. When he will actually be PM is in the laps of the Gods. All that we have seen done by DSAI in the past two weeks is par for the course in Malaysian politics.
All things considered, this is all that I am prepared to say. TSMY’s position as PM is untenable. Doubts have been cast by his comrades in arms from Umno that Din’s day of reckoning is nigh. Things are moving to the only conclusion possible when the first Langkah was taken that night at the Sheraton. And that conclusion? Umno will become the government of the day. Not for the interim, not for the foreseeable future but, untuk selama lama nya….if we allow them to do so. And the operative phrase there is “If we allow them to do so”. For now, let us look at the present.
This is what I wrote on the 1st of March 2020 : Zahid Hamidi : Mission Accomplished
For now, there is closure. Tan Sri Muhyiddin is Malaysia’s eighth Prime Minister. Everything else….the DPM post, the Ministers, heads of the Statutory Bodies, the incoming IGP and AG, the pending court cases, money, properties, chattels seized by PDRM, and for everything else that this Muafakat Nasional government wants to mould into its image….the process of change if not already started, will start Monday. All change! Good or bad, right or wrong are subjective issues taken from the perspective of those who hold political power. And who has done all this? This man Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi (DSZH), Umno’s President has, as he had said, accomplished his mission!
What DSAI is now doing to TSMY’s back door government sudah di rancang by the powers that be in Umno even as they took the first Langkah with TSMY and his band of a has-been who never was, that night at the Sheraton. What was then uncertain is simply the timing of it all. What DSAI has now done is to seal the political fate of TSMY and hasten his departure from the back door government. A back door government that was just waiting to fail. When TSMY tables his budget in parliament, that will be his Waterloo. Until then let us sabar menanti!
When all is said and done…there is no inclusive government being formed by anyone, lest of all by DSAI. There is no “we care for every single citizen of this country” nor is there that familiar refrain that insists that “we are not cutting deals with anybody”…none of the above. These politicians will do anything, with anybody for any reason and they will be cutting deals left and right if that is what it takes to accord them political hegemony over others!
So until another time when we do meet again online, may I say this in closing. There is no list. TSMY will be PM for as long as Umno allows him to be PM. Then UMNOs President will be installed as the Perdana Menteri of Malaysia. No “ifs” and no “buts”. Meanwhile, it has been reported that the King has wisely said “As such, Al-Sultan Abdullah advised Anwar to abide by and respect the legal process as enshrined in the Federal Constitution.”
Enough said. I need another Short Black to keep me sane! For lack of a better alternative, I will reluctantly allow that idiot from Kinabatangan to have the last word on all this…and I have insisted that he keeps it short and sweet!
