It seems that Lim Guan Eng is trying to deflect the heat off his father (Lim Kit Siang) by making a statement that UMNO and PAS are speaking the same language.
There seems to be little doubt that Lim Kit Siang has not had a moment of rest after Malaysia Today exposed the RM1 Billion bribe that he accepted from no other than Tun Mahathir.
After blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin posted the news of the alleged bribe, suspicion has surrounded Kit Siang to whether he had decided to sell the remainder of his dignity in exchange for a cushy life post politics; after all a politician’s salary pales in comparison to RM1 Billion.
Perhaps Lim Kit Siang sees the writing on the wall and realizes that it is almost ‘Game Over’ for DAP-led Pakatan and it might be a good time to feather his nest so to speak; and who can deny that RM1 Billion makes for a very comfortable nest!
Unfortunately the aged politician never thought that such a secret would ever see the light of day; in much the same way he thought that the secret pact between he and Tun Mahathir would never be exposed.
Remember the one where Mukhriz would become the Prime Minister and he would be the deputy Prime Minister / Finance Minister.
The following was taken from Malaysia Mail Online
KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 3 —Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim today challenged Datuk Muhkriz Mahathir and Lim Kit Siang to make statutory declarations denying a secret arrangement on their alleged ambitions for Putrajaya.

It seems that every time Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir enter some sort of secret deal, it gets exposed before the ink has even dried on the agreement.
Now with the latest revelation that Tun Mahathir paid Lim Kit Siang for the DAP-led Pakatan chairmanship position and the assurance of a very winnable seat for Mukhriz; Kit Siang’s problems seem to be mounting.
So today it is of no surprise that Lim Guan Eng tried to deflect news away from his father troubles by saying that UMNO and PAS speak the same language.
Perhaps the whole point of Lim Guan Eng ‘News Flash’ is to try to create friction, backlash or tension between the two political parties for of all things ‘Speaking the same language’ of all things. Call in the U.N Peace Keepers.
As has been mentioned before; PAS and UMNO are free to cooperate with whomever their beliefs and desire for the good of the nation lines up with.
In turn, Lim Guan Eng should not be upset that PAS does not want to join onto a Beer Festivals, Gay Parades or other similar activities which they have nothing in common.
Lim Guan Eng has to realize that he can’t rescue papa Lim from the heat is facing no more than Lim Kit Siang can’t rescue him from the inevitable.
