Anwar back in time for Budget?


If Anwar Ibrahim wins the Aug 26 by-election in Permatang Pauh, as expected, he could well be in the Dewan Rakyat within 48 hours. The Budget would be tabled on Aug 29 and we may will see Anwar Ibrahim inside Parliament by then. His presence alone would generate plenty of excitement and would add a whole new dimension to politics in Malaysia. The only difference is that he sits on the opposition bench this time. If he once used to deliver the Budget speech, this time he would be following closely. The question is how long he would sit on the opposition bench with his promise to his supporters that he would be Prime Minister by Sept 16. His credibility is on the line as his supporters expect him to meet the deadline.

What can bring down even the strongest empire? Massive Corruption and Uncontrolled lust for women, as shown over the course of world history. Here in Malaysia, there are both factors in play! Yes, the massive corruption and uncontrolled lust for women is bringing down the strongest political party, which is already starting to crack. It is time to start anew with new leaders and new party at the helm of the country. It is time to bring in a new broom.

And its not about meeting the deadline Mr Wong!

His credibility is NOT on the LINE even if the change is DELAYED.

The rakyat has run out of choice but not out of time yet.

We have been busy talking about anwar taking over the present government but have we consider the darker side of it? I mean UMNO will not be that easy to let go in the first place. Have we forget the saying that desperate people will do desperate things? Get the point?

For all we know, the raykat may be heading towards a perfect storm.

May god bless Malaysia !!!!!!!!

So what if he cannot meet the September dateline. Go ask the public. We are prepared to wait even if it have to be finally in the 13th. GE. The most important thing is to get rid of this uncaring government

Anwar, being the trend-setter of Malaysian Political Race used someone else mouth to shout. He used Khalid Ibrahim's mouth to yell like hell on Uitm issue.

As always, trend comes and fades.
