Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition thought that they could use 1MDB as some type of political fulcrum to dislodge Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak from his position as Prime Minster.
As relentless as Lim Kit Sit Siang’s DAP-led Pakatan opposition tried, they could not find the right leverage to uproot Najib Razak from office.
Lim Kit Siang knew that in order to unseat the Najib, he needed Malay muscle on his side of the fulcrum; that is why he tried to extend an olive branch to Datuk Seri Hadi Awang and PAS.
However Lim Kit Siang’s overtures to Hadi Awang and PAS quickly turned to disdain when PAS and UMNO started working together of common interest.
Shortly after PAS and UMNO started working on matters which are of a concern to Muslims, the DAP-led opposition’s propaganda portal (Sarawak Report) came out with an article (since removed) entitled ‘Cash for Pas’-The Accusations build up.
As a result of all of the accusations and lies in the article, PAS has brought a lawsuit against Clare Rewcastle-Brown; the editor of Sarawak Report.
In lieu of the fact that the DAP-led opposition still needing Malay help on the Fulcrum, they fast tracked their former archenemy (Tun Mahathir) along with his newly formed political party (Party Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia) into the inner sanctums of their (PH) coalition.
In actuality, the DAP-led opposition had no other choice but to fast track Mahathir as they had no mascot outside of the confines of prison walls to be the face of the opposition.
Therefore, being devoid of any type of leadership, Dr. Mahathir became the bitter pill that Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition was forced to swallow.
However, even with the addition of Tun Mahathir to Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition, they still had a problem; the issue (1MDB) they have put all their hope into was going nowhere and neither was Najib.
Tun Mahathir along with the Pakatan opposition have spent a lot of time, effort and no doubt money trying to use 1MDB as the fulcrum to dislodge Najib from office with nothing to show for it.
Holding ‘Nothing to Hide 2.0′ was a desperate attempt to keep 1MDB alive. However, the only thing ‘Nothing to Hide 2.0’ proved was that Pakatan Harapan is a house of cards that is beginning to collapse on itself!
