a brand new day nears
How would a Pakatan Rakyat government confront the grotesque and depressing reality of bringing to book massive corruption, hidden outright manipulation in the use and abuse of power by the Barisan Government? Are we going to be treated to the spectacle of past Prime Ministers and Cabinet Ministers shuffling through the court to be poked and exhibited for all to see as the judiciary deliberates on their fate? How many Tuns would be indicted? Off the cuff I would say at least four! Menteri Besar? Each and everyone of them! Then there are IGP’s, Generals, KSU’s, AG’s…it would be a sad parade of who is who in Malaysia – only this time there will be no bravado, no arrogance no spring in their walk as they walk handcuffed into the courts.
For those who are out of the country there will be hunted down to any corners of the Earth. All the money they have plundered from this country shall be made to pay back – if not them, their children and then their children’s children. It will be a traumatic episode in the history of our Nation but an episode we need to have so that no other Malaysian will be tempted to do to their own country what UMNO has done! No more. No more. No more.
Now what of Pakatan Rakyat today? If you do not know it yet then let me tell you what I think I know. I am not PKR, not DAP not PAS. Not even a Bumiputra, a Chinese, an Indian or Others. I am a Malaysian and I will speak as a Malaysian.
If you do not know it yet let me tell you that UMNO is no longer in denial. UMNO understands that to win the next general elections they must change. They have started the process. They did away with Pak Lah. Brought back Mahathir. While Najib is still struggling to establish a credible link with the people of Malaysia on the practical side he has already started implementing policies that will benefit Malaysia. Yes he still is grappling with the remnants of the old UMNO but he compromises only when he musts – as in Bagan Pinang.
He still makes stupid mistakes – as in the F1 Team Malaysia but it is not a fatal mistake that will kill him. He can manage it to his advantage in the time to come. Can you imagine what a podium finish for Team Malaysia will do to his image amongst the ‘mudah lupa’ Malaysians – if it ever happens? He can also act Presidential by killing the whole Team Malaysia idea later on and save Malaysia a great deal of money. By then the people will already forget that he was the one who agreed to the whole thing in the first place. This will gives us an idea of the problems Pakatan Rakyat will face in going against an incumbent Prime Minister.
Now back to Pakatan Rakyat. You have a lot of old warriors and heroes out there but we are still waiting for someone from amongst you that will lead not only Pakatan Rakyat but also more important Malaysia into the next decade.
Some non –negotiable qualities required of this leader.
Absolutely no hint of any sexual impropriety or the whiff or corruption must be associated with this person. Race, religion or gender will not be of any importance in the final analysis. If you do not have someone of this calibre within your ranks now – then go find someone and prepare him or her for what is to come. The people of Malaysia will not accept anything less if they are to vote Pakatan Rakyat into office come the next general Elections.
This will do for now. Just a wake up call to Pakatan Rakyat and to tell you guys that I am with you all the way – but you got to do things right!
