Chest Thumping?

In a Malaysia Day rally yesterday, there were more chest thumping activities than substance, where Anwar spoke of Pakatan having sufficient numbers to form the new government. While the expected exodus did not happen as many had expected, Anwar put a new twist on the whole saga.

Now it will be a few weeks from now.....

Well, again as in one of my comments, I did not expect anything to happen, but based on what Anwar had said, it may be a good thing. Some hints that he has given out...

"Tomorrow, we are ready. But the best time (for the takeover), I tell you, is when we meet the prime minister.

"A peaceful transition is paramount," he added, conceding that there will not be a change of government tomorrow as he had promised earlier.

Question: If the PM knows he will have his arse whooped... do you think he would want to meet up? Unless, the hoppers send a strong message. To this Anwar had earlier said at the rally that they are ready to form the government TODAY.

"We have the numbers but we want to meet with Abdullah, show him the evidence and work out a handover because we want a peaceful transition," he said to the jubilant cheers of the crowd.

Apparently the frogs are not yet ready to surface.

Then he further promise to reduce 70sen from fuel price...

Anwar also said that he would reduce fuel prices by 70 sen the very next day after forming the government.

What if the government reduce the fuel price by 70sen today? Does this mean if he were to take power he would further reduce by 70sen? He should have said the reduction from today's prices.. well maybe I am reading too much into the statement.

Anyway, could we be expecting more? Can Anwar prove me wrong that nothing is going to happen today? Heck, this is one time that I loved to be proven wrong!

This is what Anwar claim his new government will uphold.

"The Pakatan Rakyat government will uphold justice, a free judiciary, a free media and a professional police force," he said.

Datuk Seri, I hold you responsible for what you have promised. Do not let the rakyat down should you come to power. We have done everything within our democratic space and power with our votes to hopefully give Malaysia new hope for a new beginning. Please carry out your promises of the above and a promise to take Malaysia out of its current economic quagmire.
