In short, the opposition parties overkills themselves with silly intra-bombings!
Sg Besar and Kuala Kangsar by-election is going to be costly. Not in turn of Dollars and Cents but more in terms of pride and bragging rights. Unfortunately, it may not involve BN. With the way events are turning out, what BN has to do is to sit back, grab some popcorn and see the fragmented opposition overkilling each other.
If things are not checked, I can see BN not only retaining Sg Besar and Kuala Kangsar but may needles its way into re-capturing Selangor ala-Perak. mark my words!
First stop - Kuala Kangsar. I did not see the fun of making Hadi (PAS President) looks like a clown. No doubt, some may see Hadi's moves lately as erratic and unpredictable, but to likened him to a clown is defacing PAS itself.
To makes matters worse, Sg Besar is not much better. It maybe DAP Sekinchan assemblyman saying but hey... this is by-election and this Ng Suee Lim has no business to up the ante by suggesting beer drinking to celebrate if Amanah fares better than PAS in Sg Besar. Ng is not talking about winning the by-election. He is talking about faring better than PAS.
First, let me point out why I say so... with regards to the 2 Malaysiakini's news :-
1. If some do not agree with Hadi for his style and approach, you may put up your points and list it. Bunching him with another clown infers that he is not fit to lead the nation? Nah... he never says he wants to lead. In fact, I did not see him as PM material, not after seeing him handling Terengganu once upon a time....
2. Celebrating for faring better than the other is also not appropriate. Worse, when those commentators start talking about it being only "reserved" for non-Muslims. If the argument is that, then why can't the same commentators accept that Hudud is only meant for Muslims? When it comes to Hudud, the same guys argue that it will be spread and includes non_Muslims...how pathetic!!!
Instead of jumping on each other, why can't the opposition focus on winning Sg Besar and Kuala Kangsar? Be it PAS or Pakatan Harapan.
This is the time to question Mastura, BN candidate on her statement that she will only think about Hudud after the by-election? Is Mastura living in a cave in Timbuktu? She is a Muslim (by the way she projects herself with tudung and all). If that is her approach, then why not she also issue a statement and say "I will think about iddah (staying indoor to observe her late husband pass away) after by-election. If she claims that iddah is part of Islamic teaching, then is she admitting that she doesn't know that Hudud is part of Islamic teaching too?
If Mastura is too busy campaigning (from inside her home), then she should have the guts to voice her opinion on Hudud and not "tai chiing" her way out!
Back to the topic... why did I say opposition is fragmented? Instead of stocking their ammunition against their common enemy, Pakatan Harapan and PAS is literally aiming to destroy each other. Billboards, posters are used.
If this is the way it is going to be...then sad to say that Pakatan Harapan is no longer Malaysia's Harapan in steering the country to the right course. Pakatan Harapan has lost its aim and is going rudderless. Worse - PAN (Amanah) is not the driver for this by-election. DAP is... and as DAP, their strategy is insensitive to Ramadan month.
This is what BN is looking for. PKR, being part of Pakatan Harapan needs to bear some of what is happening in Sg Besar and Kuala Kangsar. And if PAS thinks that PKR is a major player in belittling the party, just wait after the by-election. We may see a disjointed Selangor... If Selangor is wrested back by BN, the real loser is PKR. Why? PAN was never a factor yet.... and PKR may lost the golden state of Selangor due to their pwn making. DAP? They have no issue since their man is not the MB of Selangor.
Think and think wisely. Pakatan harapan needs to re-focus on battling BN. It is not about faring better tha the other. It is about winning the by-election. Unfortunately, the stupidity of Pakatan Harapan is confirming that they are still not ready to lead the nation... period.
In the meantime....NSC law goes ahead....
Till then...G'nite M'sia...wherever u are...
