PKR's New Dawn

YB Wee Choo Keong left PKR recently. He is not the only one.

He joins a long list of Pakatan Rakyat leaders who have left the marriage pact formed on the principles of convenience by 3 strange bedfellows (as a mainstream blogger puts it correctly).

This is the argument by JebatMustDie - Mereka yang telah meninggalkan Anwar Ibrahim. And the blogger wrote a strong argument.

Jika mereka yang di atas, yang pernah menjadi orang kuat dan panglima terkanan Anwar Ibrahim sudah meninggalkan parti PKR dan Pakatan Rakyat, mengapa saudara saudari sekalian yang saya rasa tidak pernah mengenali Anwar secara dekat, yang hanya pernah melihat beliau dari jauh atau hanya dalam televisyen, atau mungkin pernah berjabat tangan hanya sekali dua dengan beliau, masih mahu menyokong Anwar?

I will go one step further. People from the Opposition, especially PAS, labeled Tun Dr Mahathir with all sorts of names - diktator, mahafiraun, kejam, kuku besi.

Some in DAP accuse Tun Dr Mahathir of cronyism, nepotism, corruption, and scandal laced.

Interestingly, almost all of Tun Dr Mahathir's men did not leave him and in fact, his supporters base remain strong till today.

Many Government officials, senior leaders, and experts who served under Tun Dr Mahathir continue to vouch, argue and stand by the well respected statesman.

In contrast, some of Anwar Ibrahim's loyalist left him and remained in UMNO when the former DPM was sacked.

Some of course joined him and they are widely known today as the Reformasi boys. But today, his list of close confidantes are slowly but surely getting shorter by day. Why, we ask ?

The best thing is, all of them left with a lot of negative accusations and allegations be it on the mechanics and functions of their former Party or their de facto leader.

Anyway, PKR wants their elected representatives to quit the Party within one month once and for all.

They don't even know who is loyal and who is not in their Party
. They don't even know who can be trusted and who can't. Not so long ago, they told the voters to believe in A New Dawn and support them to form a Federal Government.

While BN works and propels ahead with the Government Transformation Programme and New Economic Model, Pakatan Rakyat continue on with their political games.

I waited for quite some time, but neither Ronnie Liu nor Gobind Singh filed any defamation lawsuit against Wee Choo Keong for his blog posting that Ronnie Liu knew about the sand mining scandal since February.

Wee, a practicing lawyer, surely knew the law before he published such an attention grabbing blog posting and possess some form of concrete evidence ? He provided a new article for this - Sand mining scandal in Dengkil

Salam 1Malaysia.

Proves that action speaks louder than words. We will remain faithful to a leader that had been consistent in everything that he said and did.

Name calling is so immature. Stick and stones may break my bones, but name will never hurt me.

PKR = Illuminati

err excuse me mr. goh.
if tun had retained his supporters, how come he failed miserably to win one of 7 (tujuh, seven, qi) positions to represent Kubang Pasu at the UMNO conference? I believe those who could vote were UMNO card carrying members, not MCA, MIC or PPP members.

It remains to this day one of the greatest historical events in history.

PS: Barry Wain did some excellent work. No comment ah?

What power and patronage that Anwar has that he can dish out to Wee Choo Keong, Zul Noordin, Zahrain and like?
People who support him based on material returns will not stay long in PKR. I wonder how much time, money and effort is being spent by UMNO and BN to kill Anwar off politically. Do you seriously think that this government would have reversed some unpopular decisions, without Anwar and a strong DAP and PAS around?

GTP? NEM? Should we be thankful and grateful to BN for these? Many of the aspects in the GTP and NEM are simply what the Rakyat had been demanding for YEARS!

But because BN 'enjoyed' strong support from the voters they didn't bother to carry out any of the initiatives.

Now only after the people voted in a strong opposition and slapped BN in its face is it finally getting off its laurels and implementing what it should have started 5 or 10 years ago.

Deliver first. Stop praising yourselves when all you've got are plans and visions. Lets see how you execute first.

Lets see what happens then the BN government does the following:
- removal of RM70 billion subsidies.
- implementation of GST.
