Azmin: We’ll free Anwar and make him PM
| November 25, 2011
PKR will break through prison walls to make Anwar Ibrahim the next prime minister and challenges Umno to guarantee that a Malay will always hold that premier post.
Good copy! Stirs the soul and will start a raging fire within the inside of all Anwarist! ……and then what Azmin? When you finish with that rousing delivery what do you think we will think? What does it do to those who understand the reality of a conviction for DSAI for sodomy two? Does it address the question of a PKR able to manage a transition of such magnitude? What will PKR do to close ranks and redouble its effort towards the 13th general election? Are these the words of a rational and responsible leader whose priority should really be to rally the troops within PKR not give false hope of ‘breaking prison walls’ to free Anwar!
This is the hubris that PKR leaders are suffering from - the inability to look beyond the inflated ego of self proclaimed leaders who lack even broad acceptance within his own PKR what more in Pakatan Rakyat!
From the time that Anwar proclaimed his taking over of the Federal Government on September 16th 2008 to this noisy but empty threats by Azmin to break down the prison walls to free Anwar and make him the seventh Prime Minisiter….all hot air and empty promises that will never see the light of day…but nevertheless a good read.
PKR cannot allow this to go on….not when the words are that of its Deputy President…a heir apparent even? Not when Anwar is facing his real nemesis of another period of imprisonment – to languish in jail for God knows how long but enough time for Anwar to reconcile with his predicament as to why he has failed again?
But it is not failing that is a failure : it is how Anwar responds to it. Taking recourse to attributing blame to a political conspiracy by Najib will simply not do - it is time Anwar understand his part in contributing to his own downfall. All that Azmin does with his rhetoric's of breaking prison walls uses the kind of logic that endows him with delusional arrogance of doing the impossible – good for one’s inflated ego but not good to dealing with the realities of the present.
Understand this Azmin. Gunung Tahan will not crumble if Anwar is convicted. Nor will PKR or Pakatan Rakyat….but UMNO will rejoice. Your job and the work within PKR is to make yourself ready for this eventuality. It is hubris for you to not listen to those who speak with the interest and concern for PKR’s longevity at heart as I do. Retain a sense of infallibility…what makes any PKR leader strong is not assimilating all power within PKR within your hands but in ensuring the political maturity of PKR emanates from its members and not from you!
