Have both Tun Mahathir and Anwar been on to some far of galaxy and have just returned. As far as we all know, they were both here to witness Pakatan Harapan decimation in Sarawak, Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar.
Both Tun Mahathir and Anwar Ibrahim were promoting their coup attempt on Prime Minister Datuk Najib Razak from their respective locations; Tun Mahathir slowly moving here and there and Anwar Ibrahim from his residence in Sungai Bulow.
Even with their (Tun and Anwar’s) support the results were loud and clear; Three (3) tries and three (3) losses or a 100% failing in their attempt to persuade the voters.
A handshake, let’s kiss and make up kiss or any other theatrics Pakatan Harapan along with Tun Mahathir can come up with does not change the fact that Pakatan Harapan is dry on substance. That is why they along with Tun Mahathir are trying to promote the sizzle without the steak in the hopes of getting the rakyat to salivate.
But as the rakyat looks at once on offer they can plainly see that Pakatan Harapan has nothing new; it is only the same smoke and mirrors. They want the rakyat to believe that somehow a shot of adrenaline has been injected into the opposition and they have been given a new lease on life.
Look let’s face it. Tun Mahathir may have been a descent doctor at some point in his life, but everything he has tried to date has not resuscitated Pakatan Harapan. If anything, we could almost make the case that Tun Mahathir become Pakatan Harapan’s Doctor Jack Kervorkian; otherwise known as doctor death!
Tun Mahathir still believes that he has something left in his antiquated political doctor’s bag that will bring his son’s chances of ever becoming Prime Minister back to life; which is why he has turned to another sworn enemy for help. Remember the Lims (Lim Kit Siang and son Lim Guan Eng) were on that sworn enemy list along with Anwar Ibrahim.
Last year we saw Tun Mahathir and Lim Kit Siang climb into the political bed and start snuggling. Since that union did not produce a bundle of joy, Tun Mahathir wants is attempting once again climb into his enemy (Anwar Ibrahim’s) hoping that this time union will produce a little bundle of joy.
I guess Tun Mahathir believes he has nothing left of his reputation to lose as most of what was remaining of his legacy was tarnished when he began sprouting untruths about Prime Minister Najib Razak. So now Tun Mahathir is going for broke and throwing caution to the win. Perhaps he (Tun Mahathir) sees brokering some sort of deal with Anwar Ibrahim is his last chance as GE14 quickly approaches.
However, like everything other gimmick which Tun Mahathir has come up with over the last couple of years; his meeting with Anwar Ibrahim is all show and no go!
