TWO SEPARATE ISSUES:
ONE FOR ANWAR
THE OTHER FOR XAVIER JAYAKUMAR.
THE ANWAR ISSUE FIRST
Anwar needs to come out and assure the public that he was not the mastermind behind the Azmin videos as the IGP Hamid Bador had said the leader of a political party was the "mastermind."
It was after this announcement that Anwar toned down and sang a completely different tune from what he was doing prior to the arrests of his own political secretary, and other party members.
He should not blame the general public for being led to believe that he was indeed the mastermind, his sudden overtures to Azmin seems to suggest so too, and his sudden call for a retreat where he orchestrated a call for support for him are all signs that he is the culprit behind the whole Azmin saga.
|Is the he mastermind Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador mentioned?|
Anwar has done more damage to himself and Parti Keadillan than the cumulative damage done to him from Sodomy 1 and Sodomy 2, because now he has openly left his integrity in tatters and his silence about his involvement makes matters only worse.
The talk in town and the belief of the rakyat is now IF HE COULD DO THAT TO HIS MOST FAITHFUL LIEUTENANT THINK WHAT HE CAN DO TO THE REST OF US.
The talk in the PKR circles is that this animosity, not just rivalry stems from the time he nominated his wife for the position of Menteri Besar of Selangor.
PKR members of standing have revealed that during that time Azmin was not in favour of Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as Menteri Besar of Selangor after Anwar himself failed in his bid as he was about to go to jail to serve his sentence for Sodomy2.
The sources say that Azmin was upfront with his objections of Wan Azizah taking the position of Menteri Besar of Selangor as he knew she was not fit for the position as the evidence will now show since she became DPM. She wasn't politically astute and would have been the ridicule of the opposition and the then Federal Government. The most certain recipe for the failure for the PH government in Selangor.
Knowing that her failure would not augur too well for the party, (Azmin knew that better than anyone else having served as her deputy and being a founding member of the party), he was not prepared to let the party and its struggles fail with this one crazy move.
This animosity was compounded with the Nurul also joining the fray although she did no openly say so she felt that Azmin was becoming too ambitious and had betrayed the family, she felt that her mother should have been made the Menteri Besar, since that campaigning and other party activities were held
|Animosity with Azmin?|
Prior to this Azmin himself began feeling threatened first by Zaid Ibrahim whom Anwar had brought into the party and who was vying the Deputy's position and then by Rafizi who turned out to be Anwar's blue eyed boy.
Anwar was relying on Rafizi to interpret the financial situation in the government for him, although he was Finance Minister previously Anwar's understanding of Finance and economics is next to zero, he is no financial wizard, and no strategist and as Diam Zainuddin said he was only a fiery orator who was short on deliverables. Anwar is only a graduate in Malay studies everything he said as finance minister during his tenure as Finance Minister criticising Mahathir were nothing but echoes of what wwere being said by the IMF and other International bodies, after the financial crisis, at the end of the day Mahathir proved the whole damn lot including this upstart wrong.
His handicap has made him beholden to Rafizi and the position of the DPM he
|Anwar's Blue Eyed Boy|
Removing Anwar at that time was probably the best thing Mahathir did, had he not done it Anwar would have formed an alliance with PAS and this would have been not just an Islamic State but a Islamic Republic and if you talk to his followers from his ABIM days what was part of his thought process.
IS ANWAR GOING TO BE THE NEXT PM?
The answer rests with PH and more so with PKR are PKR members blindly loyal to Anwar Ibrahim or are their loyalties with the nation. The trouble is too many fo them are UMNOfied having their roots there and the thinking process so inclined. The non UMNO fellows look like they are more in the mold of the others who came before them and will follow for their own existence.
Are the PKR members just like UMNO members will they refuse to see these faults in Anwar Ibrahim and will they support him to become one although in the heart of hearts they all know he isn't fit to be the PM and this is something both Wan Azizah and Nurul.know very well too, or will they leave sentiments aside and not back Anwar for the PM when the time comes.
If Anwar Ibrahi does become the Prime Minister of Malaysia he willbe the shortest serving Prime Minister this country would have eveer had and his demise will see the demise of PKR.
Frankly the PKR needs to continue that it started with Anwar Ibrahim's incarceration is no doubt, and for it to continue as a force in this country Anwar Ibrahim must go.
THE XAVIER JAYAKUMAR ISSUE.
|Was PD more Important than the water crisis?|
This is the Minister of Minister of Water, Land and Natural Resources and where was he over the weekend?
Almost the entire Klang valley was without water, this minister hails from Klang and yet at this critical timein the face of a maajor water crisis he was out there attending political retreat playing politics according to Anwar Ibrahim's tune.
Many PKR MP's and leaders who had work to do thier own work skipped this political gathering arranged iwth what looked like ulterior motives, they knew their work commitment came first and gave that priority, but with the Klang valley at probably its fourth major water cut in twelve months causing hardships to the many ore than a million people was not important enough I suppose for Xavier Jayakumar to skip this political retreat.
Zuraidah did not turn up she had a prior engagement in Surabaya and some other pre-prepared function in line with her duties, so where was Xavier.
|Duty first Politics next.|
Probably he thought it would be settled in a day or two and left it at that.
This morning when I called his ministry I told the person who answered the phone that I suspected sabotage, because the two major breakdowns in the last 12 months came prior to an announced major maintenance shutdown, and after it was supposedly fixed in both cases it occurred again. Coincidence???
Well I think Xavier had better go buy numbers I think there is a better chance for him to win numbers then for this kind of occurrence to happen twice, or that the people who are handling the repairs are incompetent, I am sure not.
We all know that there are many elements in these organizations waiting to see this government fall, and a thorough investigation has to be carried out and such elements prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Leaving all that aside, there is no way one can get to the Syabas, or whoever it is to get answers. Communication is only one way you take it, it does not matter if you do not accept bullshit, you just take it, they make the
|2020 water services?|
It is your money so what is the attitude, we are in charge and we'll do it you do not ask questions when anything goes wrong, we'll tell you and no matter how strange that sounds that is just it tht seems to be the attitude.
You call the Minister you can't get him either, you leave a message with his people for him to call you the message is taken but I suppose it is unthinkable for an ordinary citizen to call the minister right? He is extremely busy playing politics in Port Dickson and now back at work he can't attend to the thousands possibly millions of angry phone calls form people who are still wondering if he's having a picnic in Port Dickson.
These multiple water disruptions are disrupting our lives, it's not a matter of fixing and repairing it is preventive maintenance, it is monitoring, it is making sure it does not happen, it is security, it is being able to envisage problems before it happens that is what managing is about and that is what is expected of you and your ministry.
Speaking in context of a dentist:
Yes, of course when teeth have decayed beyond repair you pull them out, that happens so often in the life of a dentist, if there is a cavity you fill it up that too us is o often the job of the dentist, but preventing all these from happening and ensuring that the other teeth are properly maintained is the more important aspect of dentistry, Oral health care, but more often than not dentist advertise services like tooth implant, painless extraction, tooth repair, capping and the others, and less often Oral care before this happens.
The same applies here, water is a resource that is so important to life as a whole, without water human beings can die, over the weekend the Klang General Hospital had its water cut too and the minister was either not aware or did not think that important enough to be on site to ensure that services resumed as soon as possible, Port Dickson and support for Anwar was.
With the exception of a slight trickle for about three hours yesterday, I am still without water, announcement have been made that it had been restored at 3.00 a.m. yesterday it is now 6.34 p.m my water tank is bone dry, my taps are bone dry, I am washing myself with bottled water I purchased from the shops and that too is now in short supply and the minister is yet to call me.
Well at 70 it is not ideal to go out and fetch water either from the pipes out there or from the tankers situated about a kilometer from me at Taman Rakyat, especially with my cervical spondylosis.
So Mr. Minister whether you are busy at work or still at the picnic in Port Dickson please call me, I have left my number with the three people I called today.
