Take a hike, PKR

By Malaysian Mirror

ONCE again we hear of trouble, turbulence and turmoil in a political party that talks every other day about taking over the government in the next general elections. We will tolerate their nonsense no more. Yes, even if it means throwing out the baby with the bath water!

Please, please PKR stop pushing your fanciful dreams about occupying Putrajaya when you are in such a pathetic and pitiful state with your prima donna politicians parading their shameless petty and puerile politics in public.

As a party you have become laughable, and as RPK predicts you could be facing your last days! Your political representatives are resting on their laurels and the increasing number of loudmouths and loose cannons are just longing to blast the party into oblivion!

Your endless intra-party squabbles, spats and skirmishes and splintered groups sicken those of us who once supported, voted and stood steadfastly by you. The strong and solid support many of us showed you have now turned into scorn.

Enough of your hypocrisy!

We are fed up of your internal feuding and festering that has resulted in a fragile and faltering coalition and a farcical government-in-waiting! Your foolhardy ways will only be a fast-forward to your self-destruction. All Umno needs to do is gleefully watch you finish off each other!

We are tired of your MPs and assemblymen’s threats to resign, their taunts to one another to quit and their theatrics and tantrums to be turncoats. Truly, we have never seen such a dysfunctional horde of politicians! We will not take any of you seriously nor treat the party with respect anymore!

We have had enough of your high-browed haughty leaders who hurl accusations and insults and humiliate one another and members of the coalition. Enough of your hypocrisy! You cannot get your own house in order and yet have high hopes about controlling Parliament House! Take a hike, PKR!

Your disunity is disgusting. Your politicians delight in washing dirty linen and in denigrating each other in public. They are an absolute disgrace. Please have some dignity and decency, and dismiss yourselves. You do not deserve our confidence.

Your politicians are made up mainly of clowns who crap, crow, clamor for and cry aloud about change but cling on to their political charades, chicanery, claptrap and conspiracies, instead of collaborating at all costs in your professed commitment to bring about concrete change.

We are not interested in the reasons and root causes of your grievances against each other. Two years and more after the last general election and you are still unable to get your act together. Yet you make grand claims of being ready to govern this nation. Get real, PKR!

Spare us your excuses

At times you look like a bunch of incompetent idiots, no different from the several insolent imposters who chose to insult our intelligence by leaving the party to be independent of party discipline and the wishes of the people in the last general election, out of purely selfish interests and greed.

Please spare us your excuses. The manipulative mainstream media and the maneuvering of key institutions of democracy by a desperate malevolent Umno are to be expected. But at the end of the day your erratic, eccentric and egoistic representatives are to be blamed. Enough is enough!

Instead of translating into reality the promise of a “revolution in the (country’s) political culture” you “reward” the rakyat with your never-ending rumblings, rancor, political roguery and now a “rebellion” in Selangor by your MPs. Is this what “reformasi” amounts to? Sheer “rubbish”!

Yes, go for your weekend retreat PKR leaders. I hope you will prove me and many others wrong but my guess is that you will still be a party weak, wavering, wobbling, wandering and wanting to do each other in…as you chart your way into political wilderness!

The road to Putrajaya requires stomach, stamina, synergy, solidarity and the sacrifice of personal agendas for the larger national agenda. Sadly, this journey has been stymied by your somnolent, selfish, self-centered and supercilious political representatives, whom Bolehland can do well without.



  1. Sorry,my fault.
    I forgot who the members of PKR are.

  3. However bad Pakatan may be, my vote remains with them as dUMNO needs a ‘timeout’ for serious reflection. First things first, we STILL NEED to have a STRONG 2 PARTY system and I intend to nuture Pakatan till it becomes a credible force to confront dUMNO/Bn. When Pakatan is in the driver’s seat in Putrajaya, I intend to whack them good whenever they step out of line and even invite dUMNO back into Fed govt come the time. So folks, let’s just get back to basics first.

  4. “…The road to Putrajaya requires stomach, stamina, synergy, solidarity and the sacrifice of personal agendas for the larger national agenda. Sadly, this journey has been stymied by your somnolent, selfish, self-centered and supercilious political representatives, whom Bolehland can do well without. ” – Marin Jalleh

    Martin Jalleh, Aliran, is right to express his concern. Many will share them as for the last 50 years we’ve been through we’re quite nervous about a spanner in the works. It’s just that, with reservation, one could take some slack and wonder whether all things are the same all the time for all situations. This far having shaken BN who have slapped us with both our hands tied, we’ve got stomache and maybe more. Some prophets were right for his time and few others for all time. PKR/PR will not waver in their reformasi bid, as they have no choice, and two years sine GE12 they haven’t got to grips in doing things while UMNO lurks in the shadows. Khir Toyo jumped on the idea of Selangor being sort of run by 3 “people” – Khalid, Azmin and Anwar. Maybe it’s just as well that it turned out this way for now. Khir, could remind Selangor citizens what Toyo Caesar bequeathed to the State!

    Baradan Kupusamy suggests there could be a potent turmoil in Selangor if it had turned any other way and DAP with PAS are not totally disagreeable to the arrangement for political reasons and pragmatism. So no one got his way and Anwar gets to referee.

    Let’s hope Anwar gets good video and audio tech to prevent the one goal that got away in South Africa! 😀

  5. I think bro. Jong got to sharpen his thinking skills. Professionals n intelectuals what I mean isn’t that to broad to means everyone of the professionals n intelectuals. They should be professionals n intelectuals of politics n humanities. As I may quite agree, not all professionals n intelectuals tend to liking politics n humanities. Same thing with integrity, self-worthy n good intention individuals. How do we can be so sure that a person with integrity, self-worthiness n good intention can make a good politician? What’s or what’re ur benchmarking? I’ll be very much thankful if u can crystalize clearly on the matter. Isn’t Taib’s politic of development not a good intention? Isn’t Taib’s worthiness of 30 millions properties reported in Sarawakreport isn’t an evil deeds to S’wakians? Isn’t Taib’s 30 yrs cmship in S’wak not classify as an integrity when all his cap ayam cabinets just say yes n never say no 4 all what he has done bad for S’wakians all these years? Ur answers 4 all these problems. YES/NO.

    That’s why when we talk of rational thinking it’s also means irritional. Same apply too, when u perceive ur right it may be also perceived ur very much wrong. So a very much needed solution to this stupidity is just be a politician urself. I would be very much delighted to meet u in DUN S’wak sitting after PRN10. God bless u.

    • Minda, my “thinking skills” are alright. It must be your ‘england’ too powerful for me or you don’t understand what I said, ..sighhhhhh!

  6. As I see n observed most of our profesionals n intelectuals r great potentials to S’wak. What’s there that I don’t understand we’re all still in the dependent-blanket mindset. If some r already out of it then it’s a rare species I should say. Thanks God for ur blessing on these few n may few more will emulate to join in this struggle to free our people from the evil injustice of UMNO/BN led gov’t in Sarawak. As I agree to all only PKR/PR can bring changes/reforms in S’wak. Can’t we see that simple thing. What change hv PBB/BN brought to S’wak after 47 yrs. My foot! They develop by making our junggle cleared and botak like Kojak. They create dams here and there to earn commision and these dams will induce earth quakes in 30 – 50 yrs times like what happened in China. So keep BN as a gov’t we all turn S’wak in another 50 yrs time as padang jarak padang tekukur. This need not to get a rocket scientist to predict what’ll happen a century ahead of us. All these had happened all over the globe alike China, Latin America, India n now USA n some parts of former USSR.

    So, get rid of ur crab mentallity n get ur brain to function. Pool all our professionals n intelectuals get our deeds n deny BN as a gov’t of S’wak comes PRN10 soon.

    • Minda, professionals and intellectuals don’t always make good politicians though they may be great asset. It is good people with self-worth, integrity and the best of intention to serve that will make the difference.

      Look at PAS and DAP, they don’t seem to have much problems like backstabbing,jealousy etc. and even if they do, dirty linens are kept within the confine of their home. Their members are remarkably united, they tow the party line and work in peaceful co-existence. One thing for sure, PAS and DAP don’t smell of that UMNO filth which PKR does. Unless and until PKR gets down to major clean-up, it can forget about Putra Jaya.

      • oops sorry, typo error: should read “…confines of their home”

  7. “…That’s the problem with your kind Watcha and many more – “…just watch without getting involved”. …” – baharuddinmokhsen

    Aha! Our Sdra baharuddinmokhsen is here! I’ll be honest, Baha! You won’t want it any other way. I think PKR Kuching stinks. I wasted 4 days trying to find PKR people for info to go to Batang Ai. I did finally on my own so I don’t have to thank your hopeless guys. So you better buck up and just do the walk. These are not kind words Baha and you know what to do with them. Anyway, if I can’t do it with PKR Kuching, I’ll do it some other ways.

    And you know what? It’s been a week since I last looked up somebody in a Kuching Kampung Branch to seek out his Branch Chief and till today – nada, nyet, not a word !

    You got a lot shit on your hands and you had better kick some ass in Kuching or nothing’s gonna get done.

    BTW, just try harder! 😀

    • I fully understand your frustration with some of our PKR people. The nature of the party is that anybody can join the party and at this infant stage, the scenario you described unfortunately is a sad reality. Part of the solution is to encourage more quality people to join and bring the party struggle to a higher level. Repeating myself, the members make the party. What choice do we have as not to do anything is to witness BN destroying this country. PKR or PR in the current circumstances is probably still the best and maybe the only option to bring about a better change for the country. We need to all contribute to make PKR/PR work and be a better outfit. Your honest and frank criticisms, very constructive in my opinion, is a good start.

      • No need to make every Sarawakian a PKR member or we’ll be falling all over each other. Many ways to skin a cat, just make sure after we’re done, it still catches rats.

        In mature democracies only a handful people are party members. 300,000 from 70.0m is about the Tory figure in UK. Yet they stole and plundered Sarawak! 😀

        Too many things are not equal and there should be many more ways to do it. PKR having started very modestly should make this Sarawak Malaysian horror end a little more honorably. 😉

      • Mr Baha, your earlier comment/response to Watcha smells of that familiar umno arrogance!

        In politics, you have to learn to accept criticism, to improve where you fail rather than point fingers elsewhere to hide your short comings! How do you expect electorates to continue supporting your party? It’s people like you whom Anwar failed to see, control or discipline and it’s so sad for the party. PKR definitely needs major clean-up to rid of all those opportunists before more another wave of kodok mischief!

  8. Well whatever u like to say just say it. What really happen in PKR is just a process of reformation. A political reform I would say, where every party member have right to say what they want to say. They have right to criticize leaders which do not happen in PBB/UMNO/BN. If u do taht u’ll be thrown out. I do agree with all the rights to say these and thats, to criticize these leaders and that leaders but I rather choose that there must be a special forum for that to happen with a good monitoring mechanism to ensure it doesn’t going overboard.

    What is happening now is very bad for PKR. The squabblings for positions and powers amongst leaders doesn’t reflects the spirit of Ketuanan Rakyat but rather ketuanan kepimpinan. In this case, the equation is still the same PKR=UMNO/BN. What’s there to bring about reformation. There’ll be no reform. We all know there’re reforms/reformists within PKR/PR but they’re also still a few non-reformed members/leaders with an inherited UMNO/BN mind-mapping. These few guys needed to be taught the hard way or else they hardly got a learning-curve. Do they need a Pluto-Socraticism initiatives to change or just a very simple Bandura Model Imitation Learning Initiatives? Who’re you to be a leader if just a so simple mechanics of learnings are not able to apply in your leadership interventions.

    I rather suggest that PKR/PR can try all the new a fresh professionals and intelectuals as other options for scouting of leaders for the future. I’m quite sure they’re more tranformable, more energetic, more open-mindedness, more futuristic and above all they’re totally non-politically biased or politically-centric to any party. This is proven with our young leaders in PKR/PR that we have now. Recruit more of the knowledged profesionals and intelectuals and try their potentials and I’m very sure they wouldn’t put you down. Yang bijaksana itu ialah yang berilmu, berfikiran dan beramal.

  9. Parti Kian Runtuh, give them another six months and if they are still in business, well, we can consider supporting them, otherwise just watch the dramas unfolding.

    What next for Azmin Ali after getting the Selangor PKR chief post? Is that what he really want? The people are definitely getting fed up whether it is real or made up of the many fallouts in PKR, most of the time real.

    Till then just watch without getting involved. Much as we support Anwar, but, those in PKR are so indisciplined, always fighting among themselves, fighting with PR partners, so eerily like UMNO Baru! Yes, by the way, have they kept their election promises and have you seen the faces of elected PKR reps?

    • I’ll bet you a crate of Shing Tao SUPP or MCA or MIC might bungkus earlier than PKR! Then PBB is also a good candidate. OR maybe MIC might be sooner than everybody else.

      PBB like UMNO will survive longer if we don’t stop them putting their dirty hands into the cookie jar.

      PKR don’t look so perfect do they? Welcome to the real world of politics.

      If they have to quarrel, let them quarrel. IF they then kiss and make up, well at least they’re like ordinary people. People in PBB for instance don’t quarrel but look what’s Taib done to all of you. Then you complain, pull your hair and say dirty words and still people in PBB don’t quarrel. But people outside of PBB quarrel. PBDS have split into more than the 4 letters in the name.

      Have fun. I have to split! 😀

      • That’s the problem with your kind Watcha and many more – “…just watch without getting involved”. Let’s walk the talk and join PKR in droves so that the party can have good, creditable, wise and knowledgeable members so that through the process of natural selection there is a better probability of producing better and world-class leaders of the highest order. Politics, at the end of the day is about numbers, the more ‘good’ members in the party the better the image of the party. So guys, please take up the challenge a make a difference.

    • If not PKR, then we’ll try Money Corruption Agency. If not, then Parti Cari Makan. If not, then Parti Bengkeng. Last-last, Parti Bankrap.
