Yong:The Scientism Of Politics

Hantu Laut

It is now confirmed that the President of SAPP Yong Teck Lee is going for broke.It is now a matter of make it or break it.

He said it was the Supreme Council decision to support a vote of no confidence against Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to be tabled on Monday and Anwar Ibrahim has acknowledged that he has now 2 more MPs in his pocket.

However, SAPP Deputy President Raymond Tan said it was totally wrong for Yong to say it was an unanimous decision, not all Supreme Council members agree, there were opposing views.

Tan who is Deputy Chief Minister and Au Kam Wah, the Assemblyman for Elopura walked out of the conference room and said he wouldn't have walked out if he was in agreement with Yong.He said Yong just wanted everybody to agree with him without giving others a chance to express their views.

Some sources say Yong has planned this and is doing it partly to gain sympathy from the Chinese community as he had earlier been informed by those in the SLDB corruption case that one of the accused would mention his name in court as one of the recipients of commissions from the illicit sales of SLDB shares, making it looks like he is being victimised by Abdullah. The timing was perfect and it was a very clever move on his part as most Malaysians would believe him rather than Abdullah,whose popularity is at the lower end of the scale at the moment.

Yong's scintillating performance includes waiting to be sacked which will get him more sympathy from the people. In Malaysians politics and more often than not sympathy always go to the underdogs.

Although the motion of no confidence has little chance of getting through, Yong's MPs must introduce it to make sure they are sacked from the BN, to enable them to switch side to Anwar's Pakatan Rakyat.Since the failure of the motion is imminent there is no need to speculate on how DAP and PAS going to vote, as both parties have stated their principle against party hopping.

It is not known yet how many SAPP elected representatives will ditch the party as a show of protest against the decision.

Politic is not a scientism that has hard-and-fast rules, anything can happen.

DAP and PAS may avow "principles" against frog-jumping, but no need to worry.

If and when the regime change occurs in Putrajaya, they will be there to claim their rightful share of Ministerial positions and the many, many political appointee positions in the Federal apparatus and government-linked organisations.

Lim Kit Siang, circa September 17, 2008 - "I won't say no to a Minister's position, if offered" kekekekek....

The BN will not be stupid enough to sack them if the SAPP try to bring up the Motion of No Confidence against the PM. They will probably be suspended or whatever.
The SAPP will have to "quit" the BN.

sm,
They either be sacked or quit.After doing what they did it would be untenable for them to stay in BN.

Yong is virtually inviting BN "sack me". But BN won't. Pak Lah cannot afford to lose any more MPs. If they expel SAPP, the exodus likely won't end at SAPP's 2.
