(This is an Umno leader who was caught red handed with millions in his bag in Australia but was let off on technical ground and who has made a come back. Right, thanks to Pak Lah. Now he wants to contest for the VP post to”membantu” the boss to whom he is eternally grateful for putting him in the cabinet through the back door. Should he? He he he… as one blogger says the quality of Umno leaders has gone rock bottom now that he is joining the fray of 15 others for the post. And should you Umno fellers vote him in, you sure are scraping the barrel! By the way Tan Sri, what happened to your mansion opposite the Subang Golf Club which was up for sale some time ago? I notice that it’s still unoccupied. No takers? I say that going-price of RMX million was just too highlah.)

There is a BIG VERY BIG difference if Pakatan and DSAI comes to power vs the current BeeEnd power structure and you should highlight it in your blog.

If DSAI ever comes to power, people should not worry, because DAP and PAS comes to power also as EQUAL partners. Lim Kit Siang and Tok Guru will not just let DSAI do as he wants.

This will truly be a check and balance govt. Likewise , PAS cant do as they want without angering DAP and also DAP cant do as they want without angering PAS. Because if any of the 3 walks out of Pakatan, Pakatan Rakyat will fall as the Govt. So , all 3 parties work together!...No one single party can call the shots, ie PAS cant simply 'impose' the Islamic state concept without DAP agreeing............DAP cant simply take away the constituionally protected 'special rights' without PAS agreeing.....and finally DSAI cant do as and what he pleases without Lim Kit Siang and Hadi Awang in concurrence....becoz with Pakatan Rakyat, any of the 3 walking away, they will fall!...............that is REAL check and balance and a true coalition



That is the difference vs DSAI 10 years ago when he was in BeeEnd.

now compare above with the situation In BeeEnd,................ everybody knows Badawi and Najis can do as they want. UMNO rules BeeEnd as Superme King. All the rest, MCA, MIC, Gerakan etc etc etc are just running dogs and prostitutes for their masters in UMNO! That is why you have corruption galore!..u call whats happening now in BeeEnd a coalition of partners????


That is the real difference between a Pakatan Rakyat Federal Govt and the current corrupt govt we have.

I am very sure he is aiming for the PM's post. Come 2010, Pak Lah will pull out the last rabbit from his hat and nail Najib forever. Pak Lah will appoint this oxymoron to be the so called PM, with him and SIL behind of course. Everyone calls Pak Lah bodoh, but actually I think he is extremely smart, he fooled the old man, Tun M, didnt he?

anon,

when the opposition succeed in taking over the federal government, you said that Anwar will ever comes to power, people should not worry as Nik Aziz and Lim Kit Siang will not let him do so as he wants.

but I think that is far more worse, because by then the coalitians will eventually splits, and the supporters are divided. When the supporters are divided, the citizens will be divided because different parties have different understanding and ideologies in their party.

So when they are not well in communicating each other, riots will soon merge, led by protesters on streets, follow by burning party flags, chaos among the citizens, paralyzed economy, unstable political, employment of armies, police and lots more.

That is the possible condition and situation that will come out if the PR splits the coalition after taking over the govt. By then, could you assure and guarantee that the coalitions will stay un-split after leading over the government?

Patut ke ahli-ahli umno mengundi seseorang yang membawa duit-duit yang berjuta -juta ringgit untuk membeli sebuah rumah yang mewah di Australia?

Dan saya percaya beliau tidak akan berada di posisi sekarang ini jikalau beliau bukan penyokong kuat Pak Lah. Lebih-lebih lagi beliau bukanlah ahli yang dilantik di dalam parlimen.

Dengan banyak kontroversi beliau dengan sukahati pula menawarkan diri untuk bertanding jawatan tersebut, walaupun diragui akan layak untuk mendapat jawatan tersebut di dalam parti. Apapun, selamat bertandinglah.

Mr Anon above : interesting point. Now, if DSAI becomes PM..who becomes the DPM? wouldn't Tok Guru and Master Lim fight like no tomorrow for the 2nd top boss place? Khalid recently admitted that the meeting on March 10, a mere TWO days after Pakatan's landslide victory, to unite the Malay Muslim power to "drive out the Chinese DAP influence". TWO DAYS! What Mr Anon you omitted though, is that they'll be some mega dog fights as to who calls the shots should conflict arise. So we'll have 3 kings constantly bickering and fighting. Small consolation here but we know UMNO is king. how about those? Pakatan need to get their act together first methinks.

AMAZING, A PARTY THAT WILL BE FULL OF MISFITS... RAPISTS, SMUGGLERS, HAS-BEENS, END-OF-LIFE POLITICIANS - ALL MAKING A COMEBACK.

YET SOME OF THOSE GOD-FEARING PEOPLE IN PAS STILL INSISTS ON COHABITING WITH ALL THOSE CLOWNS.

GOD HAVE MERCY ON US IF UMNO STILL CONTINUE TO RULE...
