Kit Siang explaining Perak. Really?
DAP will be firm on our principles and will not work with kleptocrats but we must be open-minded and flexible to co-operate with Malaysians of integrity, regardless of race, religion or politics, to build a united, just, prosperous and great Malaysia. Lim Kit Siang.
“Firm on our principles will not work with kleptocrats” BUT “we must be open-minded and flexible to co-operate with Malaysians of integrity, regardless of race, religion or politics, to build a united, just, prosperous and great Malaysia”.
My o my that just about covers everything does it not? There are enough bunkers, walls, and holes in that statement by Kit Siang to allow DAP to hide and cover up a multitude of political sins should they choose to work with anybody “to build a united, just, prosperous and great” Malaysia.
Who does not want a great Malaysia? Umno does. PAS does. Hell, even Din wants a great Malaysia. All religion does. All races do. So if Kit Siang wants DAP to work with anybody, even Umno, then they can. Is that not what they are doing in Perak? Working with the Muslims, with Umno? What about kleptocrats and Malaysians of integrity? Why not, if by doing so, Malaysia becomes great? When Malaysia becomes great, is in the laps of the Gods, but DAP has to start somewhere, so why not now, with Umno in Perak? And then the journey towards Malaysia’s greatness will be walked by DAP together with Umno, hand in hand….ya la tu!
Really Uncle Kit Siang, I know that Politics is the art of doing the impossible but going to bed with your SFE friend (sworn and “forever” enemy) is just not right. Suicidal even and no amount of words can make it right.
Do not bother to bring up the matter of DAP working with TGNA, Anwar Ibrahim and Tun Mahathir. That is like comparing Langsat with Grapes. Umno needed DAP in Perak to oust the Bersatu MB. What is the quid pro quo for DAP? Kosong! Naught! Zero! DAP facilitated Umno’s self-serving coup against its own partner in crime and by so doing, DAP prostituted itself to serve Umno’s interest! Full stop.
