I kind of pity this man, the Deputy Prime Minister, that is. I don't know if it was his choice or was he compelled to take charge of by-elections. It began in Bukit Gantang. It was a scoop, everybody said, his wooing Tun Mahathir into Taiping on the eve of Polling day. Tun said some subtle things like the crowd that came to listen to him demolish PR were quite old (old as in ancient) familiar faces and office workers forced to attend to make up the numbers. Of course Bukit Gantang went to Datuk Nizar and Bukit Selambau went to PKR. It was heard around the Bangsar circuit that Khairy whispered to a colleague, "My FIL was tickled pink when Muhyiddin lost the two Bukits and left with a distant batang." He of course was the guy who kick-started the expulsion of Pak Lah. Yes, things that goes around comes around. How true.....
And to save the tattered economy, BN gave a walkover to PR at Penanti.....and the economy remained tattered! And now this Permatang Pasir where a can of worms went on show!
I admire resourceful people. But resourceful people do not make desperate moves or utter nonentities. "He may be disbarred, but he is a good man." I have known him for 10 years and he can do well for his constituency if he wins." "I brought in the army to dispense medical services and also to help in things religious."
Yesterday's prophetic announcement by the DPM wins him the cake, and he can eat it. Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said there is a possibility that more elected representatives from PKR will leave the party as they have lost confidence in the struggles of their leader. Hello! The way I heard it across the border from Permatang Pasir, Radzi is having trouble managing his four wives and find it difficult to manage his constituency. Seems his fourth is disgruntled (as Rohaizat's second is too) and taking a case.
Desperate times it is in the BN camp.....and they are even welcoming discards from PKR, thus making BN a carbage collector. Fact, as reported, not mirages.
