EVEN IN TAIPING I GET ASKED THIS QUESTION.

9 members of the Special Bunch had to get back to KL. They hold jobs like everybody else. They sacrificed their weekend to lend support to PR. THANK YOU Boom, Rodi, Duke, Shah, Nanda, Danny, Gus, Mila, and Joni Ariff. They contributed immensely and have been a superlative support ...they are the SPECIAL BUNCH. They will be back in Taiping for the home stretch, coming into the straight. Haris and I remain, but he too will have to be in court tomorrow.

After Haris left at 1:00pm and internet access was in the pits....I thought I will walk over to Restaurant Kakak, Ah Lan chair's for a never-to-be-missed cheng-tong for lunch. My PAS UNTUK SEMUA cap and ANAK BANGSA MALAYSIA tee invited some quizzical stares. I don't blame them Taiping folks....they are generally peaceful, non-confrontational, and even if they are anti-establishment, they dont wear it on their sleeves. But not Taiping guys who have migrated out. It was a group two tables away who invited me over to ther table.....they are all working in KL and back to vote in Bukit Gantang.....Samuel, Velu, Taik, Suan, Chaik. They will of course give their vote to Nizar but they asked me this probing question that Haris and I talked about until the wee hours last evening: WILL PAK LAH GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS AN IRRESPONSIBLE PRIME MINISTER?

I am blogging from a computer shop AI COMPUTER, below our hotel, as access upstairs is still erratic. I dedicate this to the second table:

Usually it is the rats who will abandon ship when they sense that the ship is floundering. Then it is the other sailors, on orders, will abandon ship, with or without life-boats or life-vests. No captain of a ship, worth his salt, will abandon his ship in distress. Even buccaneer sea-captains hold on to this tradition of “sink or swim” but only after everybody has abandoned ship!

Tengku Abdul Rahman gave way to his successor, Hussein Onn gave passage to Tun Dr Mahathir who in turn wrapped the mantle over Pak Lah. All successors were proven credible to take on the mantle of premiership. All resigned before the end of their tenure for one reason or other. But all of them made sure that their successors were men of proven calibre.

Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi is said to hand over the Premiership to the new President of UMNO. Can he? Would he? Should he? He can and would if of his own volition. He should not if he is forced. He is the sitting Prime Minister. He cannot abandon his post unless forced by debilitating circumstances. It would be irresponsible and cowardly if he gave up the premiership under pressure.

Was he pressured?

Wasn’t he publicly arm-twisted by the newly elected Deputy Prime Minister? Others, the usual CYA crowd suddenly got courageous, removed their protective hands from their ass, plucked up some adolescent bravado and screamed for Pak Lah to speed up his resignation.

In sea-faring parlance, this is called Mutiny.

Is the Prime Minister a victim of a Mutiny?

Was there Mutiny on KD Malaysia?

Mutineers are either hanged from the mast or made to walk the plank.

QUESTION: SHOULD PAK LAH ABANDON SHIP. HE HAS UNTIL 2013 TO PLUG THE SINKING SHIP AND PILOT IT SAFELY TO SAFE HARBOR, OR UNTIL A DECENT SUCCESSOR IS IDENTIFIED?

ANWER: Later today….when internet access improves…..


HARIS HAS SOMETHING HERE.


DON' MISS DANIEL'S SUBTLE DIGS.

Last time he said " Saya pantang di cabar ".
Wah, looks like a big umno hero back then.
If he really sticks to his words he should complete his term or calls for a nationwide snap election (if he really wanted to step down).

And releases all the political ISA detainees.

drMpower said...

so u want to see it from the other prospective. i dont know whats the agenda, but i am VERY SURE the way u look it is actually the way u WANT to look at it.

abandoning the ship is metafor A. the other option to look at the present situation is, the batton to be passed at another capable captain. which is stronger and better.

stronger is the sense of no more flip flop in the future. better in the sense of rejuvenative spirit. younger and more strict.

thats metafor B for u. but u choose to look at it as metafor A. and none of the other way of looking is considered by u.

i dont think they will take the chance for PRU13 to come. at present state, PR will definitely have much arsenal to fire them to victory in 2013. but with najib at the helm, PR has no idea what will happen next. its like looking at the dark.

submarine? the mongolian girl? the dinner at paris? nothing. all are... PERCEPTIONS and HEARSAYs.

if they really got the bloody proof, what makes u think they are hiding it? waiting for the 'right time'? thats BS high time.

u should have ask ghapar baba on that. he knew better who stabbed him. right in the chest.

owh no. ghapar's dead.

I think that 'pantang dicabar' blurb was made at the spur of the moment, when emotions and tensions were high. Because his ass was seriously being smoked. Certainly deeds dont match the words, Badawi is just lembik lah. He's gonna let go the PMship without a whimper. That's all we can expect from this sotong. Whatever it is, more power to you Bernard.

Lao' Cha said...

Hey there BK,

I have not commented in awhile in here or on MT. Many would have gone for my jugular if I say that I am more pissed off with this goddamn sleeping PM than I am with that murderer cum philanderer. But that's how I feel after he announced that he'll be quitting.

When your incompetence stare you in the face and you know that you still have the power to amend your failures, you just don't hightail out of a responsibility that involves millions of citizens under your care. I might be speaking too soon, but I sincerely doubt Paklah could ever rise from the ashes. Proceed to his stashes would be a better bet. The RAHMAN theory is a curse upon the nation and it has to come to pass before we see daylight. My take is that the Demolition Man will take over for sure, but it would be a very short reign. A tainted man is susceptible to blackmail, what more with someone who helms the nation. Powerful nations would hold him by the balls to do their bidding and guess who suffers. You can bet it wont be him but the citizen of the country. This is a simple deduction most of us could forsee and dont for a minute think that Paklah dont know this. However the survival of the nation is the last thing on his mind. Protecting his family, his friends and his own interest is the priority now. He'll even punch a hole in your boat for free and see you sink than throw you a safety line.

We like to hope against hope when the there is none in sight. It's a good thing to have hope and that's why you still keep on writing and all the other bloggers too who do the same in their blogs. Campaigning for PR on your own time and money and the possibility of getting thrown in jail for the principles you believe in. Yes, we're fighting against a corrupt regime with just a laptop and a healthy dose of moral conviction. One day, even those with guns and fire power will be moved by the suffering of the nation and the people they swore to protect. We will surely see better days. If we dont get to see it at least the kids will.

zorro said...

Lao'Cha, you said: If we dont get to see (better times)it at least the kids will.

That is what me an a few bloggers are about....if not for us, for our kids and their kids.

Yes, it has been some time since you dropped in. Share, will ya?

Miss you already Admiral....we are funning short of gun-powder.

"When you don't have it, you simply don't have it!" This saying fits zzzzzzzzzzzzzPM.
A leader does not only need ability, it comes with responsibility. Sadly, it is lacking in this man...running away with his tail between his two hind legs!

A truly irresponsible Hypocrite who thrives on SYMPATHY VOTES.

Ya,not able to commence much cos the sympathizers will start to hit at me. That's the beauty of the Nation's politic.

Dont play play.

Hi guys

Just don't understand y'all.
There was a time when you called Abdullah flip-flop, sleepy head etc.
Vigourously calling for his resignation.
Now he's about to go, you want him to stay on.
Just because you got a beef with Najib.
Hey he is a good leader.
So Abdullah is handing it over to an able captain.
Hello Najib, Goodbye Abdullah.
I love them both in their own ways.

Anonymous said...

Zorro, point well taken and some food for thought. But then many of us never see the PM was never any captain at all in his days. He was manipulated by the boys on Tingkat empat and his personal life was sidetracked by his new marriage. So if the ship sinks, it's everyone for himself. Except those acting in concert who had an eye for the Captain's post without even a credible challenge from the crew. It's Malaysia's history that Badawi had proven to be the most incapable PM ever among his predecessors. And the rakyat pays a very heavy price. Not UMNO, not Mahathir.

Most irresponsible PM? I can think of many more suitable tags for him. Care to guess? I.D.I._T._._

In some ways, I do look fwd to a new pm. We've been rudderless so long, a new man at the top might make a diff. I for one wd like to give him a chance, see what he does, how he leads. Who knows? God knows.
It's like this: Keep on hurling accusations and abuses... that one becomes inured. No more shock factor.

I'm one Malaysian who'd keep an open mind.

We are not against any one to be PM.
We just want justice and clarification on certain issues like-

Missing PI , Murdered Mongolian ,
Robed democracy , sodomy trial conspiracy , missing immigration record and etc.etc...

We cant just pretend all these never happened.

IF THAT IS THE CASE TUN DR.MAHATHIR WHO IS SAID TO RULE BY PROXY HAD CHOSEN THE WORST CRIMINAL & THE MOST CORRUPTED EVIL OF ALL PROXIES TO RUN THE COUNTRY TO OBLIVION AND DECIMATED & DESTROYED HIS VERY OWN GREAT LEGACY IN NO TIME, WHEN THE KING IS INSTALLED THE KING MAKER IS NO LONGER REQUIRED???

NOW THE POLICE OF MALAYSIA IN CLEAR BIAS SUPPORT OF THE UMNO NAJIS HAD NOW BANNED THE USE OF THE NAME OF THE MURDERED MONGOLIAN LADY IN BY ELECTION CAMPAIGNS OF THE OPPOSITION PARTY PKR FOR FEAR OF LOSING THE BY-ELECTIONS AGAIN & AGAIN, WHAT A JOKE THE GUILTY NAJIS IS AFRAID OF THE GHOST OF THE MURDERED MONGOLIAN LADY IN BROAD DAYLIGHT FOR THE CRIMES NAJIS HAD COMMITTED. NAJIS THE LAUGHING STOCK OF THE WHOLE WORLD, THE PEEM IN WAITING FOR MALAYSIA, IMPLICATED WITH MURDER AND CORRUPTION HAS NO SHAME OR DIGNITY BUT TRY BULLYING HIS WAY UP THE PEEM POST, SUCH UNETHICAL & CORRUPTED PERSON MUST BE SHUNNED AND BOYCOTTED BY ALL WORLD LEADERS AND BY ALL.

ROSMAH CRYING CROCODILE TEARS, AS FOR THE C4 AND THE POLICE BODY GUARDS THAT WERE USED TO ANNIHILATE THE NAJIS’ MISTRESS ALTANTUYA BY BLOWING HER BODY UP INTO SMITHEREENS TO SATISFY THE GREAT JEALOUSY AND GREAT ANGER SHE HAD BEEN HARBOURING AND SEETHING FROM AND ALSO AT THE SAME TIME TO GET THEIR IMMIGRATION CONTACTS TO DELETE ATLANTUYA ENTRY RECORDS. BUT PI BALA GONE MISSING AFTER EATING FISHHEAD CURRY NEAR THE BRICKFIELDS POLICE STATION WHO RECANTED HIS FIRST SD WITH ANOTHER SD THE NEXT DAY UNDER DURESS FROM FISHHEAD CURRY TREATMENT FROM SOME POLICE C4 OR COULD HE HAD BEEN C4ED BY NOW AFTER DISAPPEARING FOR A VERY LONG TIME AND NOW LEFT 2 POLICE PERSONNEL IS LEFT TO BE THE SCAPEGOAT FOR THE MURDER WITHOUT A VALID MOTIVE?

KARPAL SINGH, GOBIND SINGH DEO, ALTANTUYA & ANY OR ALL OPPOSITIONS AGAINST NAJIS IS SQUASHED IN ORDER SO THAT THE SAID STIMULUS OF RM 60 BILLION FROM THE MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT COFFERS WHICH ARE NOW BEING DEPLETED BY NAJIS AND ONLY BENEFITING NAJIS’ CRONIES ARE THE ONLY ONES ESPECIALLY HIS SPECIAL PIMP/PARTNER/PROXY RAZAK BAGINDA’S NOMINEES COMPANIES WHO ALREADY RECEIVED A SECRET COMMISSION OF 114 MILLION EUROS INTO HIS COMPANY AS INTERMEDIARY TO THE SUBMARINES, HELICOPTERS AND AIRCRAFTS PURCHASES FOR THE MINISTRY OF DEFENCE

WHERE ELSE CAN MALAYSIA GO AFTER 51 YEARS OF INDEPENDENCE???

THE SEWERS OF COURSE WITH NAJIS AT THE HELM AS PEEM BECAUSE ALL EVIDENCES HAD SHOWN HIS GUILT LIKE THE SMSES HE SENT TO RAZAK BAGINDA’S LAWYER, HIS POLICE BODY GUARDS, WERE INDICTED AS WELL, BUT NOT SOMEONE’S ELSE???

If the PeeM in waiting can be implicated in Murder and Corruption then why the Police Murderers & Autopsy Pathologist & now the double faced snaky diplomat who want to keep his job cannot do the same with impunity, they are just following the footsteps of their revered leader Najis who had done very well in swearing to Allah on the Koran and every one of them can learn on how to swear their innocence despite all evidences have shown their Guilt, so only Allah can give them the real Judgement come Judgement Day as there is no escape from Allah’s real Justice for the deeds they have done.

Bandit Najis had been cheating and robbing the Nation’s Coffers for years with fictitious and non existent Defence Contracts, with either non supply necessary or supply with inferior quality products, by awarding these to his wife’s nominee Companies.

Loser, Loser & Loser Najis UMNO & BN therefore the biased EC must choose the same date so that they can try to cheat by using Phantom Voters if the Pakatan is not too careful on all three fronts.

History will repeat itself the most corrupted of all, implicated in Corruption & Murder, call Najis will helm UMNO to oblivion.

Beware of the Najis & UMNO underhand deceits, filthy lies and dirty tactics which must be exposed so that they will be shunned by all Rakyats in order to be thrown out in the next GE.

The Era of Anarchy has just begun in the coming Premiership of Najis, the most corrupted of all corrupters, all Malaysians beware that they, Najis & UMNO, will spend Government Money to buy Chaos in order to impose Dictatorial Government without election or after they have lost the Election in GE 13, we have all learnt from Perak Government’s takeover by deceit and by force of using the Police Force which could be bought and the Assemblymen who were bought either with money or in kind like no case in court for their corruptions’ cases pending trials if they defect from Pakatan and of course the sole DAP betrayer could be bought with a great sum of money as Najis knew and as well as the betrayer that she could never be elected ever again in Jelapang and of course the pension sum must be huge including allowance for her permanent retirement for making a betrayal to Pakatan for short term benefiting of Najis?

There must be a good reason for the Sultan well learned in law and also once holding the highest office in Supreme Court took a lowly decision in support of the most corrupted Politician call Najis, PeeM in awaiting. No offence intended to the Sultan who was highly regarded until just now only, it is either he has been threatened with some secret files on him held by Najis, or like all the other froggies that had been lured by huge sums of money offered by the most greedy of Corrupters called Najis who used the nation’s coffers as his own kitty bank. Knowing very well that Najis would not last the next GE, this is the best opportunity to make some good cash funds for keeps as the next Government under PKR will be clean and righteous for the God, King, People and Country.

Not realizing that Corruptions breed even more Corruptions and this is the vicious circle and the people of Perak are ones who would suffer in the long run and they will not forget what a Sultan they have had. If Najis and UMNO is in Power it is most likely that the nation’s coffers would be decimated and there will be nothing left for our Children’s Children, therefore make sure the UMNO along with all their goons are thrown out the next election.

May Allah bless you the people of Malaysia

AFter all those hugs and make up on stage you would have thought Mahathir will stop hounding Badawi. Yet he leaves from London and continues his tirade against Badawi! Strange yet true!

BN MPs and Ministers receive invitations to the palace to witness Najib's inauguration by the Agung! Who sent those invitation? Najib or the Palace? Trying so hard to make it difficult for Badawi to say no at the last minute maybe??

Then of course we all saw the last minute reversals of cabinet decisions over the last 2-3 months. IJN, Labu airport, Allah, (there was one more..can't remember), anyway, all these designed to whack the air out of Badawi maybe? Any CEO or board of any company that makes a decision, announces it and then very swiftly reverses it will not last long in that position. Badawi must surely feel whacked out after all these.

Can't he see the game plan?
