A little tittle-tattle before you read Tun Mahathir's profound truth about Lim Kit Siang.
Kit Siang has his son and his daughter-in-law in the party and allowed them to become candidates and become elected representatives. The son, Lim Guan Eng was made Penang Chief Minister when DAP took control of the state in March 2008 General Elections.
The Lims are from Malacca and Guan Eng is considered a carpetbagger in Penang. Why wasn't those elected Penang Chinese candidate made the chief minister? Not NEPOTISM kah?
They would quickly called it NEPOTISM if it was UMNO, but in DAP it is not.
In PKR the scenario is even more intriguing and frightening.Father, mother, daughter and father's sidekick virtually control the party, all elected to parliament on a wave of sympathy. If it was in UMNO Anwar would scream at the top of his voice .....NEPOTISM!, in PKR it is not. The daughter Nurul Izzah is also considered a carpetbagger.
All of them won at the height of Abdullah Badawi's unpopular tenure as prime minister. Pak Lah and his son-in-law was rumoured to have helped the man get out of prison and instead of thanking Pak Lah, he came back to bite him.
The Penang dear leader and the de facto leader of the "UNION OF BRAGGARTS" had already shown their arrogance and authoritarian streak even before capturing Putrajaya.
Malaysians are still blind to the double standard of this bunch of strange bedfellas. What do they have in common? Can DAP tolerate PAS when or if they govern the nation? PAS is determined to pass hudud law and make Malaysia a truly Islamic country.
Mahathir's short take on Kit Siang.
