Budget Approved, Brader Anwar Is Not Even Opposition Leader Anymore. There is no political crisis. Everyone just go home.

So what was Dr Mahathir’s Press Conference all about yesterday? Dr Mahathir said, tomorrow the Budget may not get approved, the government might fall, if frogs had wings they would fly, if  a donkey could sing the Negara Ku it could bla bla’.

Well nothing of that sort happened. 

First of all to the super lembap Malaysian Press why didnt anyone of you ask Dr M how many MPs he had on his side? It is a simple numbers game isnt it? Why didnt you ask Dr M  ‘Do you have 112 MPs on your side?’ 

None of you asked that question.  Well the Budget has been approved 112 – 108 or something.

This means the PM is intact for a full year. I keep repeating – there is no political crisis. Everyone just go home.

The political crisis is now with Dr Mahathir, PKR (yes do read on) and inside UMNO.

Dr Mahathir saying that the government is weak is so far quite a misnomer. With only a three seat majority Tan Sri Muhyiddin can get the Budget 2021 approved and he is still in power.

In stark contrast in May 2018 Dr Mahathir had a majority of more than 20 MPs yet Dr Mahathir was removed from office after only 22 months. And the PH was kicked out. So even a 20++ seats majority could not guarantee they were a strong government.   

There is a conspiracy theory which says that the whole thing was just a wayang by Dr Mahathir. To cut Brader Anwar down to size.

If the dodos do not realise it Dr M has now fully usurped Brader Anwar’s role as leader of the Opposition. The real leader of the Opposition is Dr Mahathir Mohamed. Not Brader Anwar.

And everytime this ‘Vote of no confidence’, ‘Lets vote against the Budget’ etc shenanigans come up, Dr Mahathir hijacks the narrative from Brader Anwar.

As Opposition Leader it is actually Brader Anwar’s role to take the lead on issues like ‘No Confidence Vote’, ‘Vote against the Budget’ etc.

But that is not the case. Each time something like this crops up, Dr M hijacks the discussion and takes charge of the matter. 

Brader Anwar has become a lame duck Opposition Leader.

And then whatever is attempted simply fails. The No Confidence Vote against the PM Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was spearheaded by Dr Mahathir. It failed.

But it was Brader Anwar who went to the Istana and made a fool of himself. 

Lembu punya susu sapi punya nama.
Dr M punya ‘screw up’, Brader Anwar punya malu.

Do you all notice that despite making such a big fuss about the No Confidence Vote not once did Dr M make even a tiny suggestion that he would be seeking an audience at the Istana. Why not? Because he knew the No Confidence Vote was NOT going to happen. Its just a wayang. Read on.

And yesterday’s Press Conference was just giving the PM Tan Sri Muhyiddin advance notice to be on his guard. I am certain that after Dr M’s Press Conference, Tan Sri Muhyiddin’s team made some phone calls to make sure that the headcount today would be sufficient.  Thanks to Dr M’s advance warning.

Now Brader Anwar cannot bring up the “Vote of No Confidence” again. He will be a laughing stock. The Brader is already a laughing stock – he is a lame duck Opposition leader. No one listens to him anymore. Dr Mahathir has made sure of that.

But of course Brader Anwar does not need any help to be a nincompoop. He is his own worst enemy. The following is from M’kini. Some Anwarinas are being frank about the Brader’s incompetence :

[email protected]: Anwar regain power not through SD from tainted Umno leaders ..  

All those around  after 2018 are certainly Trojan horses, he is a lame duck 

Indigo: Anwar, it’s about time you put your feet on the ground .. Forget about SDs

Bring back Rafizi and Nurul. Let young leaders come in 

get rid of people with money politics and self-interest 

Scarlet: Rafizi, you should spearhead reformasi with Nurul 

Anwar, what’s the use of announcing you have numbers when you dare not reveal names? 

Do not mix good eggs with rotten eggs, lest all the eggs in the basket go bad.

J : Rafizi must rise up to lead as there is a crisis in PKR’s leadership and vacuum 

Anwar should be aware that all his actions are not favourably received

Goliath: Rafizi had big hand in Harapan win GE14 

return of Rafizi and Nurul is what Malaysia truly needs

Ferd: Rafizi, take over the party, if Anwar cannot perform. combo Rafizi-Nurul  

Nurul  – stay far away from father’s politics.

Concerned : Rafizi the backbone of Harapan’s election victory in 2018

most of us want you to come back 


What does this mean? This means that PKR is in serious crisis. The Peter Principle kicked in a long time ago in PKR. Now the full effects of the Peter Principle are finally bringing down the curtain on them. (The Peter Principle is a concept in management developed by Laurence J. Peter, which observes that people in a hierarchy tend to rise to their “level of incompetence”.)

My view is Dr Mahathir’s end game is quite obvious. The end game envisioned is Bersatu and Umno. Minus Pas and minus PKR of course. And minus at least three guys who will be going to jail. 

Who do I support?

In 2018 I never supported Bersatu working together with PKR. That is why I did not attend the PH victory celebration at the Sheraton.

Similarly now I do not support Bersatu (minus Dr M) working with Pas.

To me Pas and PKR are no no.

Unless Rafizi takes over PKR and Brader Anwar disappears. 

We need an ummatan wasatan – a moderate community, a progressive community – from Bersatu, Umno and PKR to merge. Minus corruption, minus racism, minus RM888,000 superbikes.  Scientific, logic based, free market oriented and progressive. 

Above all else – we need a change in policies.
