WAKE UP TONY PUA!

 by e.s.shankar

WAKE UP TONY PUA!


“Perhaps its time to start a new painting. Already got a title in mind.‘The Unbearable Lightness of Being Stupid'. Any bidders? 18/08/21. Getting kicked out of Govt in Feb2020 was bad. But playing a major starring role in returning power to UMNO? Devastating. 20/08/21.” Tony Pua.

Like many, I have been a supporter of PKR and DAP for a very, very long time and their Pakatan Harapan coalition that heroically won the 9 May 2018 general election and formed the government for 22 months between 10 May 2018-24 February 2021. But the above comments by DAP MP Tony Pua suggest that he does not know who is the Devil or PH’s implacable enemy. So too, many “analysts” and self-appointed “experts on politics.”

On 3 August 2021, 11 UMNO members labelled The Klepto/Court Cluster Group who were mainly convicted criminals or facing numerous court cases for corruption, MLA etc., withdrew their support for then PM Mahiaddin and his Perikatan Nasional coalition government. This meant that Mahiaddin had lost his thin majority in Parliament and by the Constitution, had to immediately tender his resignation to the King. He refused and defied the Constitution and King.

On 13 August 2021, in a televised address, Ex-PM Mahiaddin offered a number of “reforms” and possibly a unity government in preparation for a Vote of No Confidence (VONC) against him in Parliament, scheduled for 6 September. The offer was primarily aimed at DAP which had 42 seats in Parliament. Mahiaddin had hoped that either by DAP  abstaining or voting in his favor, he could stave off resignation and the collapse of his PN government in just 17 months. As it happens, the leadership of DAP and PH did not fall for Muhyiddin’s amateur tricks and PN fell. The “reforms” offered were:

1. Institutional reforms such as maximum 2-term tenure for future prime ministers and  Opposition MP’s to be included in Parliamentary Select Committees.

2. Anti-hopping law for MP’s.

3. Implementation of the voting rights bill which reduced the voting age to18.

4. Bribes – up to about RM3.5 million pro rata per year budget allocation for Opposition MP’s. Opposition Leader in Parliament to be given the status of a Senior Minister (not a Cabinet post).

Was this a genuine offer? Was Mahiaddin a sincere man whose word was his bond? Believable and trustable? This is what Mahiaddin had done while being Home Minister in PH and PM under PN:

1. Blocked all reforms, especially the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC).

2. Backstabbed PH and plotted the fall of the PH government with Mahathir, Azmin Ali and Hamzah Zainuddin in the infamous ‘Sheraton Hotel Move;.

3. Sacked Chairman Mahathir who was the founder of Bersatu (PPBM).

4. Formed PN with crooks like Najib.

5. Formed an Islamic Muafakat government which was not inclusive of non-Muslims. In one stroke, he removed all representation in government for 15 million of the Rakyat and rendered us into 2nd class citizenship with a bloated Cabinet comprising 73 Ministers and Deputy Ministers. He packed the civil service, public institutions, statutory bodies and universities with Muslims.

6. Blocked the re-opening of Parliament and a VONC against him.

7. Declared Emergency on 12 January 2021 on the pretext that it was necessary to contain the Covid19 pandemic. Up to 1 August, the number of Covid19 infections had risen by more than 700% and deaths, 1,500%!!!


All Tony Pua had to do was ask himself a couple of simple questions:

1. With no majority support and especially no 2/3 majority in Parliament, by which century did Tony (or his DAP colleague Ong Kian Ming) imagine Mahiaddin would have been able to deliver his “reforms”? 2121?

2. Having blocked a VONC and any reforms while in PH or as PM under PN for 17 months, why would Mahiaddin suddenly offer a reform agenda with bribes? For DAP or PH’s benefit?

It’s incredible that Tony Pua can be so naive, green. How could he be taken in by the snake oil salesmanship of con men and Ketuanist opportunists like Mahiaddin, who for years under UMNO, had been demonizing and plain lying that DAP was anti-Malay, anti-Bahasa Melayu, anti-Islam, anti-Royalty, pro-Communist China and a secret member of PAP, Singapore?

 

Wake up Tony Pua. Please recognize that both the Devil and Your Enemy for Life, are the Ketuanists from UMNO. They are the wolves in sheep’s clothing who will tear you and DAP apart in a heartbeat, drink your blood for breakfast and burn your carcass.

 

Here are some inspiring words from the Al Pacino character in the academy award winning 1992 movie ‘The Scent of a Woman’:


 

“Cradle of leadership. Well, when the bough breaks, the cradle will fall. And it has fallen here. It has fallen. Makers of men, creators of leaders, be careful what kind of leaders you’re producing here...But, I can tell you this. He won’t sell anybody out to buy his future. And that my friends, is called INTEGRITY! That’s called COURAGE! That’s the stuff leaders should be made of."

 

Will Tony Pua now leave DAP because he is openly in conflict with the leaders of DAP? I hope not. Malaysian politics is full of overblown egos and prima donnas. The learning curve is steep.


Please do not ask DAP or PH to sell its soul or sell anybody out.


Wake up, Tony!

20 years of trying to be PM without success is a monumental FAILURE! About time to conduct an internal PKR REFORMASI - change the losing PM CANDIDATE for new better horse capable of WINNING. DSAI GAGAL

JJ Chua said...

I would choose to believe to disbelieve, cos I (with apologies) would to summarise the whole collapse is due to the existing Opposition Leader cos for many occasions he had openly says he have the formidable number of MPs, for he had been on many occasions being brougt down by his own people (i.e he was dismiss as DPM, his many colleagues in his own party have left him and betrays him)
on this critical period when he's only ask to get only 6 more MPs, he fails (not forgeting as I said earliear on numeral occasions he proudly and loudly says he have the numbers)
Maybe is time before GE15, PH should seriously thinks of a more formidable Leader to makes a comeback

E S Shanker..I am not taking sides..while you rightfully argued all points correctly on the table..I believed all the rakyat ..me & you fell for it...failing to look at the bigger picture that all along you and everybody bought the narrative sold by UMNO..and sincerely believed that bringing down PN must be the only and obvious way...UMNO connivingly plot their comeback through our help and opposition parties...today they hold office again.. what Muhyiddin tried was to bury UMNO for good especially the “court cluster “ ..now I don’t see it happening..prepare for the worst..and I felt it was also the best time to bury UMNO first...one step at a time..while PN is not exactly our cup of tea..but they were desperate to hold office..we could always negotiate until the next PRU...in politics there are no friends...unfortunately now we have to face 2 factions in the next PRU I think it’s tougher to bring UMNO down now...not possible but the crooks got away..while ideally we want to get everyone...not possible...just my 2 cents opinion...not saying TP was right..we should look at the bigger picture..of course easier said than done..I could not offer any solutions..but I would rather make sure I make some inroads by making sure at least all the remaining 7 are sent to Sg Buloh...now we will not see any at all...back to square one...blamed all you want..we the rakyat also failed to give all...we could only muster 90-92 seats the maths did not add up..how do you expect PH to hold up when the “crossover happen”...whatever you want to called it ....“frogs”... sad day for Malaysia and Malaysians in general who love our country...

Tony Pua was once a magnificifent champion of the underdogs, what has happened to him, is he aging prematurely?

Rajen said...

Tony Pua was right. PH shud hv worked with TSMY. And forced some changes within. All those reasons given in this write are too flimsy... Illogical...

Ramesh NPC said...

Tony Pua..its not to late...You are not bigger than DAP...i suggest that you leave DAP and go join MCA. You either have no principles or no brains.

Steven Lau said...

Well said! Quite a handful of Tony’s supporters whacking those that disagreed with his views on the subject matter. I won’t bet my last $ on moo as you’ve said he won’t get the support from all the kleptocrats.

JK Asher said...

Have shared- thank you. You said it all for me🌹

CH Liew said...

In the first place, most do not trust the offer , but have to admit it is a brilliant strategy to split the opposition. Either way ( accept or reject the offer )there will be disagreement and finger pointing amongst the opposition; which we see is already happening now. wake up please, stay united is the only option.

BH Tan said...

even with undi18 already passed earlier by ph, pn can refuse to implement. many agree tony shld not gloat over the long2 shot at "consider possibility". pls dont be another dap big mouth. be humble and move on.

Arlene said...

Last I checked, DAP is not a communist party. People should be able to have different opinions without being labeled as sell-outs, although I must say they are political greenhorns, completely and totally outfoxed and outmaneuvered by seasoned, hardcore snake oil salesmen.

HF said...

Dsai and LGE shall let go and resign they both are hated most by the other side which indoctrinated to voters

Francis Tan said...

E.S. Shankar, what you said resonates with me and I also slammed Tony's suggestion. I can only hope that he was only being naive and nothing more sinister than that.

CH Hew said...

Very well said

WC Kong said...

Let's get on with life. Tony and Kian Ming should not be blamed as they had the same hope that we have. Enough said as both are loyal party members with proven record of service.
