BULLDOZER Mahathir will not hand over the Prime Minister’s post on a silver platter to anyone, especially to someone who cium tangan cium pantat the very people opposed to him (Mahathir) and rule of law.
Anwar Ibrahim, the grandson of a paternal Tamil Hindu grandfather and dubbed Main Belakang by fundamental Islamists, would allegedly be intimidated into submission by the every people opposed to Mahathir and rule of law.
At present, except for less than half of PKR, reportedly no one supports Anwar’s bid for the premiership.
Mahathir conceded that he became Prime Minister because of DAP. So, why should Anwar be PM after Mahathir?
Anwar became irrelevant the moment Mahathir defected to then Opposition Pakatan Harapan (PH). It was because of Mahathir that PKR was formed.
Anwar has been talking about the Reform Agenda for the last 20 years but has never spelled it out.
Wan Azizah, as DPM, should take over after Mahathir.
If she can be appointed DPM, she’s qualified to be PM.
It’s Anwar who keeps harping in the media about him taking over from Mahathir. The Prime Minister should not humour him.
The more things change, the more they remain the same.
It does not matter who rules in Putrajaya.
What matters is a strong Opposition in Parliament i.e. no two thirds majority for the ruling party. A strong Opposition can unearth all the scandals in gov’t.
Those who defect to Bersatu will not win GE15. The so-called Malays will not vote for them. Except for the Gen Y, the so-called Malays will not vote for PH.
The Opposition cannot be trusted. They are potential frogs. It’s better for the people to vote for at least some independent lawmakers. This is an idea whose time has come.
Sodomy 1 and 2
Main Belakang’s pardon was about the law, not the truth.
Anwar’s pardon was based on a technicality.
He was convicted of a victimless offence. There’s no law on that, as pointed out by the Bar Council in a statement on Sodomy 2.
This may be the reason the Agong pardoned Anwar.
What the Agong is supposed to have said about the Sodomy 2 conviction came from Anwar.
The court is not about ethics, moral values, theology, sin, God, justice or the truth.
The court is about law. The Bar Council statement on Sodomy 2 was about law. So, the question that arises is how the superior courts could convict Anwar on Sodomy 2.
As BULLDOZER and Daim Zainuddin pointed out, it was Anwar who initiated Sodomy 1 by instructing his secretary to lodge a police report against a book of allegations against him.
Instead of addressing the charges against him in Sodomy 1, Anwar chose to speak of the case as a political conspiracy. He did not provide any details.
He was acquitted of sodomy upon appeal.
The corruption conviction, part of Sodomy 1, was upheld.
Sodomy 2 was allegedly a case of “old habits die hard”.
Again, he claimed the case was a political conspiracy against him. He provided some details this time but chose to make a statement from the dock. Since he was not cross examined, the test of the burden of proof shifted to the “balance of probabilities” (51/49) used in civil cases.
The rest is history.
According to media reports, Anwar wants to scrap anti-sodomy laws. Yet, he talks about Islamic values.
He supports LGBTQF (lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders, queers, freaks) but has yet to come clean on his sexual preferences.
Muslims say their religion is against sodomy. So, they will not support Anwar to be Prime Minister after Mahathir. PAS and Hadi Awang have already said Anwar should not be Prime Minister.
