First he takes a shotgun to PKR and blows significant chunks out of it. While i found that it validated some of my earlier thoughts about the party, i also thought its strange that someone would basically be poking holes in his own canoe. It doesn’t really compute.
“I am still reasonably confident that I will win. If, of course, there is a fair counting and fair process, then I am sure I will win,” he said.
If that isn’t a poke in the eye, then nothing is.
There are only two possibilities:
- He is lying. He knows he is going to lose in a fair election and wants to damage the credibility of the party from within as much as he can before he gets the boot.
- He is telling the truth. He knows things that only a senior insider of the party will know. By stating the truth, he puts pressure on the election commission to give him a fair election. If he wins, he will then emerge the hero to reform the party. If he loses, he can claim foul.
Either way, PKR loses.
That’s dastardly, and wickedly smart. I’m beginning to like this guy for the exact opposite reasons why i like Nurul Izzah. Seems like a contradiction, but i assure you its not. He’s just so Mahathir-ian.
