Pakatan concocted their latest fabrication in an attempt to deflect public and media attention away from Lim Kit Siang.
For some time now Lim Kit Siang has come under fire for trying to be patriarchal (a father protector) for the Malays, a Mahathir puppet, Mahathir and Wan Azizah’s puppet master, an opportunist, dictator and so much more.
With all of this heat coming on him daily he needed to find relief in order to get people to talk about someone other than him.
In a parallel universe his doppelganger is probably blasting the airwaves over Mahathir administration and BMF.
However that is in a parallel universe. In this part of the cosmos Lim Kit Siang, like Tun Mahathir has developed a severe case of laryngitis coupled with a dose of amnesia when it comes to criticizing Mahathir of the present or his time spent as Malaysia’s Prime Minister.
Now having nothing new to say about Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak; DAP-led Pakatan has once again turned to trying to sour the relation between Prime Minister Najib Razak and Deputy Prime Minister Zahid Hamidi.
Many recall that shortly after Deputy Prime Minister Zahid Hamidi took office, DAP-led Pakatan tried without success to sow seeds of friction between the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister. (here)
Now out of desperation to create news that about anyone but Lim Kit Siang; DAP-led Pakatan is pulling out old stories hoping that the second time’s the charm.
DAP-led Pakatan wants Malaysians to believe that Zahid Hamidi would do like former deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin did and follow Mahathir and his false promises. Not only that; they want Malaysians to believe that Zahid would leave UMNO to go over to the lala land called Pribumi!
If this fantastical bed time story were true, what could Mahathir offer; the post of Deputy Prime Minister?
Zahid Hamidi already has that it. Besides, didn’t Mahathir already offer that to Lim Kit Siang?
What about the post of Prime Minister?
From what many understand, that position has been promised to both Muhyiddin (as care taker PM)as well as to his son Mukhriz.
If Mahathir offered anything other than those two (2) positions, it would be a step backwards for Zahid. In addition, given Tun Mahathir’s propensity for backtracking and U-turns; one would have to be borderline crazy to believe any promises he (Tun Mahathir) would make.
So what does DAP-led Pakatan hope to gain from their wild DPM story?
At best DAP-led Pakatan would hope that their bed time story would cause a shadow of doubt to linger over Najib and Zahid’s relationship.
News Flash: Keep dreaming; that isn’t going to happen.
At the very least DAP-led Pakatan hopes get the well deserved negative media spotlight off of Lim Kit Siang and on to someone one else.
There is a strong possibility that Lim Kit Siang will get part of his wish when the trail of his son Lim Guan Eng’s starts; then Malaysian’s will have double the fun telling juicy bed time stories of both Lims; father and son!
