Anwar Ibrahim thinks he is invincible. He thinks nothing can touch him. He thinks PKR is his party to do as he pleases. He thinks he can talk his way out of any situation. He thinks he has a solution to any problem that may come his way. He thinks his time has come to lead Malaysia. He thinks nothing in the past, current or in the coming days can do anything to prevent him from taking over from Tun Mahathir as prime minister of Malaysia…and of course, he thinks he can hold Tun Mahathir to his promise to make him prime minister.
My dear Anwar, twenty years ago, you were already prime minister designate. Twenty years ago you had the world, not just Malaysia, at your feet telling you how great you were. Twenty years ago nothing would have been able to stand in your way to be prime minister. And twenty years ago, no one would have been able to predict the trials and tribulations you would have to go through in the last two decades…..and now twenty years later….I ask you Anwar….to please try to understand the reality that you now facing again. Please try to understand that in spite of the passage of time, nothing much has significantly change. Tun Mahathir is still prime minister. You are still prime minister designate. And nothing…it would seem……would be able to stand in your way to become Tun Mahathir’s successor as prime minister.
Well may you think that it is so Anwar….but, if truth is to be told, I would think that it is pertinent that you understand the following things.
You must understand that there are many people out there who do not want you to be their prime minister. Azizah must understand that there are many Malaysians who think she does not deserve to be deputy prime minister. Nurrul Izzah must understand that whatever she does now in her political life will be suspect. Your Segambut Mob (yes, mob is a better word to describe these people in Segambut than royalty!)…your Segambut Mob are quickly taking the place of Najib and Rosmah’s family as the least liked family in Malaysia today! You and Azizah are the most talked about couple today….talked about for all the wrong reason! And more worrying for your Segambut Mob, you are now the butt of jokes and are being made fun of for the manner you have conducted yourselves after May this year.
You think that being seen with Royalty, jetting about here and there and thinking yourselves to be the First Family of Malaysia is the way to go? You think that the deals you are making and the money you are collecting in the name of setting up a war chest to make you prime minister asap is something we do not know?
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 17 — The PKR top leadership, including its president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, was today accused of practising nepotism, cronyism and favouritism following changes to the appointment of the party’s state chiefs.
What you are now doing in PKR and to PKR is plain to see. You want every one in PKR to swear allegiance to Anwar Ibrahim not to PKR. You want “Yes Men and Women” stacked in all position within PKR so that what Anwar Ibrahim wants, will be done. You do not divide and rule…you have no finesse to do that. Anwar Ibrahim only demands people to do as he says. Those who do not do as they are told will be isolated and taken out of any position they hold in the party. Most times you have been able to have your way in the party but a significant failure was your inability to dismiss Azmin Ali as your deputy. So having failed to remove Azmin Ali as your Deputy, you do what you think is the next best thing – get rid of any supporters of Azmin Ali from any position of authority in PKR. There is no room for dissent in PKR. No check and balances within PKR. No room for any other interest to be addressed except the political well-being of Anwar Ibrahim and those he chooses to be on his side. If you rub Anwar the wrong way , you are not chosen to contest in the next election – party or country. Within PKR today, a perfect storm is brewing and soon…that perfect storm will destroy PKR.
Anwar, maybe it is already too late to save you from suffering the same fate as you did twenty years ago when Tun Mahathir dismissed you as his deputy and PM designate. Why do I say too late to save you? That decision that Tun made twenty years ago to dismiss you was made, to all intents and purposes, by Tun Mahathir himself. That decision Tun Mahathir made twenty years ago to sack you as DPM was then carried out with Tun Mahathir in total control of Umno, of the Government of the day and of all the authorities needed to trial and convict you of the offences you were then charged with. You have had enough time to think about what you have done before and after your dismissal as DPM. You have had enough time to reflect and make right what you think you did wrong and also reflect as to what you want, you would and should do, if ever the opportunity to become PM comes your way again. Twenty years has been long enough for you to right the things that you did wrong and do the things he should have done to ensure that this time around, you will and must do the right thing to ensure that history will not repeat itself.
So why Anwar have you not learned from the lessons of the past? Why do you have a death wish for yourself by trying the patience and grace of Tun Mahathir by your very actions in these past few months after your release from Sungai Buloh? And why Anwar, are you trying the patience of the very people who have been responsible for putting Pakatan Harapan into government at the May elections this year….the rakyat who voted Pakatan Harapan into power?
You were made prime minister designate because Tun Mahathir thought your support was needed to win GE 14 for Pakatan Harapan. Having Azizah as DPM was the down-payment we had to pay for that support from PKR. You becoming PM is the ultimate price of that support. Let us get a few things straight. To win a war – and make no mistake about it…trying to win and election against BN is like going to war…and in a war you do anything you have to do to win the war. If Anwar is needed to win that war against BN, we will take Anwar. And we won the war…so you are now the prime minister designate. Now you remember what the British did to Winston Churchill after he had won the Second World War for them….they voted him out of office because he may be a good prime minister for a war but they did not want him as prime minister after the war.
Now that we have won the war against BN, Malaysian are asking if we do need an Anwar Ibrahim as prime minister after Tun Mahathir. They also know that you were given a pardon by the Agong not because you were innocent of sodomy but because that was one of the conditions of you giving support to Tun Mahathir. You had to have the pardon if you were to be the Prime Minster designate. So now we have a prime minister designate who really is guilty of sodomy and a prime minister designate that the people do not want. So what do we do now?
So really Anwar, with each passing day, Mahtahir and the rakyat of Malaysia are facing an Anwar’s dilemma. So go back to the first paragraph of this article and ask yourself if you will become PM dalam masa terdekat!
Anwar Ibrahim thinks he is invincible. He thinks nothing can touch him. He thinks PKR is his party to do as he pleases. He thinks he can talk his way out of any situation. He thinks he has a solution to any problem that may come his way. He thinks his time has come to lead Malaysia. He thinks nothing in the past, current or in the coming days can do anything to prevent him from taking over from Tun Mahathir as prime minister of Malaysia…and of course, he will hold Tun Mahathir to his promise to make him prime minister.
Will Anwar Ibrahim be Prime Minister? I think not!
