A miss is as good as a mile they say and it looks like with Najib at the helm the distance between Anwar and the coveted title may have stretched far apart. An infinite journey for Anwar unless the bomb he planned to drop tonight has something to do with him staging another coup.
In his usual tongue in cheek style he ridiculed Najib releasing of the 13 ISA detainees quoting inconsistency.
Certainly, I don't expect Anwar to be jumping with joy and showers Najib with accolades. His strong advocate against the ISA and his negative response against Najib's recent actions shows his own inconsistency.Does he expect those people to be locked up for life? They must be a time when they have to be released from detention. Depending on the severity of their crime some may have to stay longer.
He said "Pakatan Rakyat still protests against this draconian law. They can still detain, then release, detain and release. Where is the justice? What kind of government is this?"
When he was in UMNO and was deputy prime minister he didn't talked like this.He was quite happy helping to lock up those who criticised the government with his eyes wide open and his conscience locked. What kind of politician is he?
He said UMNO is a party of flip-flops and in his usual demagogic rendering said "When we said the RM7 billion economic stimulus package was not enough, they said, no, this is enough. Then Najib announced a new RM60 billion plan and they said we support it. When the government called the detainees terrorists, they supported. Now it says they are suddenly innocent and they also support."
Anwar Ibrahim appears to have run out of silver bullets and is taking potshots at Najib.
