Reality Strikes in PKR and Pakatan Rakyat Governments


In recent days, there has certainly been a lot of rumblings in the camps of Pakatan Rakyat, particularly in the PKR.  To the BN, this is certainly beautiful sounds to their ears.  It appears that cracks are appearing in the opposition.  Moreover, now there are 4 independent MPs all coming from the PKR.

These so-called “important” leaders include Datuk Seri Mohd Zahrain Hashim (Bayan Baru), Tan Tee Beng (Nibong Tebal) and Mohsin Fadzli Samsuri (Bagan Serai) who all recently quit PKR, and Zulkifli Noordin (Kulim Bandar Baharu) was recently sacked.

Certainly, people like Zul Nordin has insinuated that there are probably more law makers from the PKR who are planning their exit because they are disenchanted with the politicking and inner circle of Anwar.  Even if the exit of more PKR law makers are in the making, we think it not being too serious a situation because the true colors of these independent MPs are now clearly seen.  Like it or not, Lim Kit Siang is correct.  The people will judge them if they even make it to the next election ballot box for a vote.

It appears that there are still many ex-Umno leaders now in PKR still harboring the “get rich and powerful quick” mentality

Economic Problems Felt, Umno Politics Takes Front Seat


Today‘s NST front page:

KL Composite Index loses 3.6% to 859.11 … analysts say the markets haven’t seen the worst yet … the Malaysian market is not an exception.  The shares are oversold.  They no longer reflect their values.  We now have plenty of cheap, quality and undervalued stocks … but expect it to fall further next week,” a local dealer said.

This 32.2 points down is the KLCI lowest in 4 years.  We don’t want to be duped and lulled into a dream that Malaysia is not in a problem state.  At the same time, we should not be doomsday prophets either.  We just need to be honest and do something about the economy NOW!

But is the Government SEEN to be doing much?  We’ve been hearing a lot about not to worry but economics is not requiring counselling.  The Malaysian economy requires definite strategies and actions.  But is there any?

PM Surprise Move, Now over to Najib and Anwar


It appears that Pak Lah will defend his presidency this December.  Judging from today’s MalaysianInsider report here, Pak Lah seems to have risen above the detractors in the Umno Supreme Council meeting last week.  Instead of caving in to Muhyiddin, Rafidah, Hishamuddin and Apdal Shafiee who were reportedly going for the jugular pressing for Pak Lah to handover to Najib, Pak Lah took a deep breath and shocked them by doing just the opposite.

Will Najib want to go against his boss?  Will his backers push for the prize now?  Does Najib want to defy Pak Lah?  Pak Lah today knows who is for him and who is against him.

Major Concerns


When we look at all the events happening before our very eyes and think them to be unbelievable yet it is happening, we ask why it is so.

The Government seems to be exciting the public and opposition supporters to have a reason for a possible absolute control over the entire country through the recent turn of events. Hopefully, this is not true but one can hardly be blamed for the speculation when the army was called into KL for an “exercise” and the high handedness of how Anwar was arrested together with the Police causing anxiety and total inconvenience with their mindless road blocks. The excuses given were short of idiotic.
