Lim Kit Siang’s greatest fear is that Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak has proven a better strategist after all and is able to read all his political moves. Kit Siang now realises that Najib has skilfully pre-empted and countered all the moves. On his own Kit Siang is not capable of defeating Najib and that is why he needs ex-UMNO leaders to teach him how to defeat Najib.
It is Kit Siang who is in a state of panic, not Najib, because his real game is being exposed and is being stripped bare for all to see. Kit Siang’s deceit is now as clear as day and is very obvious when he tells one audience that Pakatan Harapan is being led by DAP while he tells another audience that Pribumi and PKR are leading Pakatan Harapan.
Kit Siang thinks that an Ali Baba arrangement can work in politics since it can work in business. And this is where Kit Siang has underestimated the Malays because they will reject his Pakatan Ali Baba even if he puts all the ex-UMNO leaders on the front page as the Malay face of Pakatan Harapan.
