It is kick ass time for Pakatan if ever they aspire to take PutraJaya. Come 1Januay 2013, BN will unleash a MEDIA BLITZ aimed directly at the current feuding between the two stronger members of the Pakatan coalition – DAP and PAS. The government is said to have employed OGLIVY to damage this partnership. No! It has nothing to do with the use of the word ALLAH because DAP and PAS are not quibbling over this issue. IT IS ABOUT HUDUD! And Oglivy will set to make capital of this issue. Word that Anwar is calling the coalition together to settle the Allah debate may be misplaced. He has to get PAS and DAP to meet eyeball to eyeball and make a final statement on HUDUD! DAP and PAS must be seen to be doing something about this prickly prattle.
Oglivy is reported to have met the BN media machine and all editors have been briefed on the strategy. It is pointless for Pakatan to employ any agency to contest this onslaught. They must hunker down into their bunkers and make harsh decisions. They cannot pussyfoot around this hudud issue. They cannot temporarily sweep it under the carpet. They must come upfront and tell us the pro-opposition rakyat what they will do to address this irritant “tissue”.
In the interim, we pro-pakatan bloggers and commentators in the Pakatan-friendly alternative media must desist from airing our self-gratifying tirades on perceived apparent miss-steps of the coalition. Nobody is perfect and infallible. It is no point enduring the long march to the gates of Putrajaya and lose the KEY on the way! The Pakatan triumvirate must cleanse their system of partisanship and self-interest and work towards, no matter how difficult, a common “masterkey” to unlock THAT gate!
