The Unholy Trinity, Double A and Triple A

This is not about religion, it's about politics.

It's about the unholy trinity, the Pakatan Rakyat, with reference to, as an analogy, the Christian Holy Trinity.

This is the 3 in 1 political party, Pakatan Rakyat.

The Father, of the Pakatan Rakyat is, you guessed it, Anwar Ibrahim. The Son, no points for guessing, Lim Guan Eng. And the Holy Spirit, you can take your pick. There is no mystery in the unholy trinity. They are bound together by 2 words in 1, "CONSENSUS". Now, this is the mystery, they are bound by agreeing to disagree.

That is what the Pakatan Rakyat "CONSENSUS" all about. First word CON as in deception of the rakyat and SENSUS to make political sense.

And I have been saying this all along. This "consensus" is nothing more than a convenient con job, when serious disagreements arise and they are many, to fool the unsuspecting and foolhardy supporters of the opposition.

But the story does not end here. The mystery began to unfold when the Son decided that non-Muslims could use the word "Allah". It does not matter now whether the Son was referring to East or West Malaysia.

At first, the Father, the father of the Son and the Holy Spirit, 3 in 1, agreed with Pakatan: Non-Muslims can use ‘Allah’.


When that ground breaking, earth shattering decision was announced, I asked that it be a signed declaration like the Kuching Declaration. After all, all the 3 persons of the unholy trinity were in agreement with 1 voice.

Now seriously, any political observer worth his salt will tell you and I saw it as another political sham, PAS would never endorse such a controversial decision. The issue strikes at the very heart of the Islamist party's soul.

And so it was to be, the PAS Syura Council officially announced ‘Non-Muslims can’t use Allah’.

Again, the story does not end here. It is no longer the Father or the Son or any Holy spirit but enter non-entity Azmin Ali, AA.

AA comes out of the hole to announce "Pakatan firm on ‘Allah’ issue"

Quote AA,
“We are bound by the Pakatan Rakyat policies that were discussed during the meeting. And because we are bound to those policies, we will stick to that decision. The Syura Council is not related to it,” Azmin told reporters at a press conference at the PKR headquarters today.
Bound by policies? Word of mouth, common platform, signed declarations et al, now which is which? I'll answer my own question - All bull and more shit.

What in the world is AA talking about when he says, "The Syura Council is not related to it"?

That has been answered by PAS itself, when PAS ulama chief Datuk Harun Taib said,
“PAS stands by the Syura Council, as it is the supreme body responsible for policies and major decisions in the party"
Anwar Ibrahim and Lim Kit Siang are now conspicuously quiet. Anwar Ibahim has sent his favourite son AA to do the dirty job. So it seems.

Where the Pakatan Rakyat now stands, not only in the "Allah" issue but all the others like PAS' Hudud laws, events incontrovertibly prove whatever the opposition pact had decided to agree or agree to disagree on all the other fake policies, are convenient excuses to justify the existence of an inconvenient marriage. The sole purpose of which is greed for power individually and collectively of persons and parties concerned.

But does the story end here?

If Anwar Ibrahim is skirting the issue, Azmin Ali is lower ranking among the Pakatan Rakyat hierarchy, or in this case Parti Keadilan as he is only party deputy president, to make any official announcement for PR.

Why Azmin Ali? Is AA another lamb for the slaughter in the long line of lambs slaughtered in the name of Anwar Ibrahim?

Or has AA gone lone ranger?

The PAS organised Himpunan for Anwar Ibrahim, what has been alternatively called "Taharin" Square uprising, PR solidarity has flatulently gone fart with PAS dissociating itself from Lim Guan Eng, Lim Kit Siang and Anwar himself in the "Allah issue.

"Taharin" is in reference to Azmin Ali's wife Shamsidar Taharin. Read a masterful Desperate PR's attempt for Tahrir Square-like revolution?

AA may have came out with such a non-sensical announcement, unbeknownst to the Pakatan Rakyat hierarchy, as a death wish to himself

Or it could be En AA is now jealous of one En AAA, and the death wish, is for Pakatan Rakyat.

After all, chief economist Azrul Azwar Ahmad, is a much more qualified person than Azmin Ali. According to Datuk Rocky in "The untold story of Wawa the chief economist of Bank Islam", AAA has very frequently, passionately and discreetly been in communication with Anwar Ibrahim, Nurul Izzah and Rafizi Ramli. When AAA does resign as his stated intention is to eventually resign, the feeling might be AAA is a better proposition than AA in the coming election.

As they say hell hath no fury like a blue-eyed boy scorned.

Thanks Kevin, good article.

My gut feeling of late is that the Pakatan component parties have been putting their foot in it on several issues which can result in loss of votes for them.

On the other hand, if they somehow happen to win Putrajaya in the next GE, Malaysia will be a "very interesting" place to live in.

No, I'm not pro-BN but I Pakatan isn't all that inspiring either.

I'm gonna just sit back and watch the "fun" unfold as Malaysia's politics slides further into the sheiss haus.

Well, En AAA predicts PR will prevail and if it does I will bet my last ringgit there will be political instability, internally in and of PR. I respect everybody's right to support whoever they wish, so it would not matter if you were pro-opp. I welcome everyone especially if they comment decently like you do. Yes, it will be "interesting" and "fun" if the unthinkable happens, which I think not, scheiss will hit the fan.

Best regards
Freddie

Hi Freddie,

Thanks.

En AAA could be right, though I wonder about his impartiality.

With regards instability which would occur if Pakatan wins, besides instability between them which is already coming to a head befor ethe GE, let's not forget that BN supporters could very well hold rallies, marches, demonstrations and even strikes which will test Pakatan's support for freedom of assembly and peaceful protest.

Will they honour that policy or will they resort to draconian measures.

Then let's not forget that generally pro-BN civil servants could very well refuse to cooperate with their new policies and what will a Pakatan government do.

I see no real change for us ordinary folk after four years of Pakatan rule in Selangor. The roads are still potholed, ruts still scar roads dug up by communications and utilities companies, construction still proceeds unabated, traffic jams are still horrendous, road behaviour has gotten worse, and so on.

That said, I don't expect BN to be any better but it's been more or less business as usual after four years of Pakatan rule in Selangor.

Simply put, I'm rather disillusioned with Malaysian politics in general.

Disagree vehemently. When PR took over 4 other states, did this happen? No.

"Then let's not forget that generally pro-BN civil servants could very well refuse to cooperate with their new policies and what will a Pakatan government do"

You are exoressing the same view as AAA which I find unfounded and an affront to the civil service.

You have been disillusioned by the politics of hate initiated by the opposition Pakatan Rakyat and their NGO accomplices.

That said, just chill out and enjoy the pleasure of peaceful day at a park, the bustle of bazaars, the joys of shopping at the malls, teh tarik till late night or visiting friends and family especially on celebration days like Hari Raya, Deepavali, Christmas and the coming CNY.

Cheers
