The opposition Pakatan Rakyat (People’s Alliance) appear to be a contradiction of sorts.

You have the Democratic Action Party (DAP) that is predominantly Chinese and whose working class supporters are most concerned about earning a living and putting their children through education.

On the other hand there is Parti Islam (PAS) that is Islamic based i.e. religious centric.

The pact’s third member, Parti Keadilan Rakyat (People’s Justice Party) is effectively an off-shoot of UMNO after the fall-out involving Anwar Ibrahim back in 1998.

It is a pact that somehow managed to gel itself into a mean ‘fighting’ machine ……. that took away the UMNO led Barisan Nasional’s two thirds majority in Parliament in 2008!

So how did Anwar Ibrahim manage to bring parties of diverse objectives onto the negotiating table and hash out a manifesto that appeals to the Rakyat (people).

Quite honestly, his task was made quite simple by his adversaries.

He continuously exposed UMNO’s excesses in terms of corruption, slanted deals, cronyism, nepotism and worst of all …….. they were all done at the tax-payers’ / people’s expense.

And when we have people struggling to put a decent meal on the table for their family, these expose’ can create the kind of response that shakes the very foundation that the UMNO led government has been operating on these past 50 odd years!

It is made easier for Pakatan Rakyat in that the UMNO led Barisan Nasional warlords cannot stop doing what they have been doing ……. enriching themselves with the country’s monies.

Look at the deal whereby known UMNO supporter, Abu Sahid, is selling his Highway concession (Maju Expressway) to a listed company EPMB for a cool RM1.7 billion with cash accruing to Abu Sahid amounting to RM1.1 billion.

And let’s not forget the highway built by Abu Sahid was substantially financed from a government grant!

Ever notice how these humongous cash deals suddenly take place before a General Election.

The same happened just prior to the 2008 General Elections when KNM (under docile & compliant front-man Lee Swee Eng) bought some foreign company from ‘individuals’ for RM1.7 billion cash financed by the country’s major bank.

And how is the company doing now?

Not so well, I hear.

Looks as though the Cowgates, Copgates and now the Bodygates (Nazri, son and bodyguards) issues will continue surfacing until the whole country will say:-
