There are some people who think first and then speak. There are others who speak first and then think. Then there is the DAP-led self anointed Pakatan leader Lim Kit Siang; he speaks first and does not bother to think!
Kit Siang alludes to people trying to get him out of politics to weaken both Pakatan Harapan and the DAP. This sounds like Lim believes that without him Pakatan Harapan and the DAP will fall into disarray and that he is the opposition linchpin! (here)
It makes one wonder, if that is the DAP manifesto as Tony Pua said something similar when he was part of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) that investigated and found no illegal connection between Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and One Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
“Arul must believe that if I’m removed from the PAC, the rest of the committee, particularly the eight BN representatives, will be easy to dupe, resulting in a watered-down report against 1MDB,” Pua said.
There is little doubt that opposition committee members from Tony Pua’s own party were not bemused to have Tony Pua referring to them as being easily duped.
During Tony Pua’s 15 minutes in front of the cameras, he tried to give the impression that he was Mr. ‘PAC’ and all the other committed members were there as props for his show.
Now we have Lim Kit Siang practically reading from the same play book that Tony Pua previously used; saying that there are those who want him to retire to weaken both Pakatan Harapan and the DAP.
In other words without him (Kit Siang) around, everyone will be duped!
If Lim truly believes that he is that vital to the survival of the DAP and DAP-led Pakatan, he also believes that he must be the puppet master to whomever Pakatan Harapan eventually chooses as their choice for Prime Minister. After all, if the DAP and Pakatan Harapan cannot survive without him, how can Malaysia survive with him pulling the Prime Minister’s strings in the direction that he (Kit Siang) wants him or her to go.
Perhaps this is why Kit Siang wants to be Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister; he can stay close the his Prime Minister puppet in order to plant ideas and pull the strings.
If Lim Kit Siang ever gave thought to the things that proceeded from his mouth, he would not put himself in the position to be lampooned. As it stands, he continues to speak without thinking which is why he will give the impression that without him as the DAP and DAP-led Pakatan linchpin the opposition is doomed!
