Anwar Ibrahim yesterday put the blame on Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi for the delay in the oppositions attempt to form the government and insisted that he had the numbers to take over the government on 16 September 2008 but failed because Badawi refused to step down and hand over the government to him.He now set December 8 as his next game of blind man's buff.
Which idiot is going to give him the government on the platter? Which idiot is going to buy his story when they knew fully well he his bluffing? Not only he tried to bluff Abdullah and the BN, he also bluffed members of his coalition and his supporters by saying he can't reveal the names of those BN MPs that have agreed to join him because the Prime Minister would use dirty tactics to stop them and the sad thing is his followers believed him.DAP and PAS swallowed the crap hook,line and sinker.
The problem with Anwar is he has become victim of his own bluff.If you have enough MPs to form the government the right thing to do is to assemble all of them and march to Puterajaya and demand the resignation of the Prime Minister and than go to Parliament and exercise your constitutional rights.Pass a vote of no confidence against the PM if he refused to resign.In fact he can do it today when Parliament reconvened.That's what astute and honest politician should do instead of making a fool of oneself by making all kinds of false claims.
It's the same kind of rubbish he came up with by accusing the BN of rigging the elections.How would he explains the unprecedented and unbelievable results obtained by the oppositions in the March General Elections if the BN rigged the elections.The oppositions captured 5 states and got 82 MPs and denied the BN of two-thirds majority.The BN was wiped out in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur.Sad to say he gave his followers blinkers to wear so they couldn't see the sides of the track.
He said there will be fireworks today in Parliament on debate of the budget.Malaysians are looking forward to him taking a pragmatic and sensible approach on debate of the budget and not just screaming his head off just to make senseless noise to keep his supporters besotted to him with his endless rhetoric.
Anwar Ibrahim has come to a stage where he believes in his own lies.He epitomises a demagogic preacher.His followers believed him without a shadow of a doubt.These are the early signs and one of the most essential ingredient in the making of a dictator, blind and unquestionable loyalty. This is not to say that he definitely would end up being a dictator if he comes to power but the people are giving him the opportunity to be one.
PAS and DAP are watching him closely as to where he is leading them to.His repeated failure to make good his promise in taking over the government would soon weaken the solidarity of this loose coalition and lost of confidence in him.
They say revenge is sweet, that probably sits at the top of his priority list more than anything else.
Give it another year, if no government,the coalition will break up.
