For those unfamiliar with the term ‘Whipper Snapper: A whipper snapper is a young and inexperienced person considered to be presumptuous or overconfident.
That definition pretty much sums up Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) youth chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman.
The impetuous young man at a press conference said that his wing plans to organize a so called Nothing2Hide forum with Tun Mahathir and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
In reality the Nothing2Hide forum is really hiding the real agenda which is trying to debate with Prime Minister Najib Razak.
At least Lim Kit Siang (although out of place) came out and said that he wanted to debate the Prime Minister. Lim Kit Siang wanting to debate the Prime Minister led to Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Keruak’s rebuke by saying that Lim Kit Siang is not on the same level to debate Prime Minister Najib Razak.
Now we have PPBM youth chief thinking that he can accomplish what the old warhorse Lim Kit Siang could not do; get Prime Minister Najib Razak to succumb the opposition’s request.
It has yet to sink into Tun Mahathir and DAP-led Pakatan’s psyche that it is not incumbent for Prime Minister Najib Razak to show up at any debate masked as a forum or any other event which DAP-led Pakatan organizes.
Prime Minister Najib’s continuing success’ both in Malaysia and abroad are his testament to the nation; that is value to the nation not a falsely named forum planned by a party in search of political relevance.
Therefore, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) youth chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman should just call the forum ‘NothingMoreWeCanDo’.
Just call it that and give the allotted time to Tun Mahathir to preach to the DAP-led Pakatan Harapan choir.
The PPBM camp is starting to give the impression that they are a dying animal gasping in an attempt to hold on to political significance as the 14th general election powers toward them.
That is why Tun Mahathir has been promoting himself to serve as DAP-led Pakatan’s Prime Minister designate and having PPMB to do the same; he knows it’s now or never.
Now you have the PPBM youth wing believing that they can somehow challenge Prime Minister to stop the positive momentum he is building for Malaysia just to attend a PPBM event; an event the youth wing chief says they will hold even if the Prime Minister does not attend.
If that is the case; why stop there.
PPBM’s youth wing should organize a ‘NothingMoreWeCanDo’ forum every week until the 14th general election; after all, DAP-led Pakatan has tried everything else so right now there is ‘Nothing-More-They-Can-Do’!
