Pakatan's Phantasm

Hantu Laut

The Pakatan rumour mills are working overtime.Here's something that the Pakatan people have that the people in UMNO don't have. They are either busy insulting the non-Malays or busy fighting among themselves to jockey for positions in the upcoming party elections.They have forgotten they have a nation to run.Apology always come too late.The PM say one thing, the DPM try to do damage control.

Fact or fiction, doesn't matter,some people would well believe it.

Here's something from Malaysian Insider that I would leave to your wild imagination.

Swirling rumours as September 16 looms





By Shannon Teoh and Adib Zalkapli

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 3 - An anonymous text message purporting to highlight key dates leading up to the plans by the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) alliance to take power by Sept 16 , has begun making the rounds, but opposition leaders have denied being responsible for the message.

Ending with the words "from pkr", the message claims that some Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties from Sabah and Sarawak will begin an exodus from the ruling coalition by Friday.

And by Saturday, BN parties from Peninsular Malaysia , with the exception of MCA and MIC, will also signal their exit from the coalition, the message alleges.

The text message goes on to state that 10 unnamed BN MPs will then join PR parties by Sept 7.

By Sept 10, which is next Wednesday, the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi will have resigned, paving the way for Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to fulfil his pledge to take over the Federal Government by Sept 16.

PKR vice-president R. Sivarasa disclaimed responsibility for the message, pointing out that "anonymous SMSes shouldn't be taken seriously," and that the details and the sort of ideas listed in the message did not give it any credibility.

"People have been enthusiastic about Sept 16, so maybe this is born out of someone's exuberance, but I wouldn't treat it with any credence. It's not like there's been an avalanche of such messages," he added.

Influential Sabah Umno MP Datuk Anifah Aman, who has been continuously mentioned in crossover speculation, called the text message "fictitious" and said that "anybody can have a dream but they are dreaming too far."

He said that among East Malaysian MPs, "nobody really cares about Sept 16 because we are busy visiting our respective constituencies during the fasting month and preparing our debates for the budget."

Anifah also poured scorn on the takeover plans.

"They are always crying out for democracy, transparency and justice, but is this the way? What will people think of them going through the backdoor? That's not democratic anymore."

Anwar, PKR's presumptive candidate for prime minister, has continuously asserted his plans to form the federal government by Sept 16 and there has been recent talk of entire BN component parties crossing over.

There has also been speculation that Anwar is seeking an audience with the King, although he has responded to this by saying "not yet.Read more.......

HL,

I very much doubt that the PKR would have sent the SMS around. For all you know it's from the BN...trying to cause trouble again.
As for the PR going by the back-door to form the Govt. well...when the cross-overs are to the BN, it's ok...but when it's the other way...oh no, cannot lah!
AS for DSAI trying to gain an audience with the Agong...well...so what? It's probably a smart move on his part.
If there are any cross-overs, you know Bodohwi will dissolve Parliment to call Snap Elections. However, our Agong will have to OK it or else...sorry lah!
It's probably a good idea. Let's go to the polls again & once & for all to see who the Rakyat want. The BN (read: UMNO) or the PR ?!
I think we know the answer to that!

sm,
I don't think it is from leaders of Pakatan.It is most likely supporters and sympathisers of Anwar.I can't see BN benefits from this kind of propaganda.

A fresh poll would be catastrophic for BN.
