Former deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is seriously in need of help in the first kind, if he believes Lim Kit Siang needs to command the stage to control the puppets.
The Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) President is trying to put the minds Malays at ease by saying that ‘It is impossible that Lim Kit Siang will become the next Prime Minister.’
Of course even Lim Kit Siang would never expose himself to that degree as he knows that such a move would immediately create a backlash that he could ill afford. So why would he risk that when he could take on a non threatening role as a deputy Prime Minister or hold the purse strings as Finance Minister or both.
In playing up the Malay face of the DAP-led Pakatan Harapan Opposition, Muhyiddin Yassin wants to give the impression that they are in control of and not Lim Kit Siang and the DAP. This almost makes one wonder whether Lim Kit Siang told Muhyiddin to make these statements in much the same way he has gotten Mat Sabu to get the word out to drop Tun Mahathir.
It is turning out that Tun Mahathir has become more of a liability and less that of an asset. In other words, the grand experiment to forgive and forget in order to lure Malays to DAP-led Pakatan just did not work out. Tun Mahathir did pretty much what Mat Sabu did and those other Pakatan Harapan Malays did when it comes to bringing Malays on board; nothing!
However one of the biggest differences is Tun Mahathir has a way of not only repelling the youth and more mature Malays, but he also has a tendency to insult people along the way.
But none of this seems to have sunk into Muhyiddin Yassin’s skull as he believes that PPBM is the reason Malays having been coming to them and ultimately DAP-led Pakatan by leaps and bounds.
But where were the throngs of Malays during the ‘Love Malaysia End Kleptocracy?
Even Mat Sabu had to come out and admit that their 100,000 target was just a failed tactic in hopes of getting people to show up.
Now with hope quickly dissipating, Muhyiddin is dispatched to tell Malays that Lim Kit Siang will not become Prime Minister, if DAP-led Pakatan were to somehow win the 14th general election. No doubt, even Lim Kit Siang would come out and admit that.
Lim Kit Siang knows that he does not have to command the stage (Putrajaya) to control his (puppets) DAP-led Pakatan choices!
