What now Anwar?


The first tier leaders within PKR are now readying themselves for a ‘THEM’ vs ‘US’ day of reckoning. There is a ‘If you are not with us then you are against us’ mentality that permeates all aspects of PKR politics. There is no room for dissent or arguments. And they are all bunkering down into a siege mentality  – the mentality that will close PKR to all but the faithful. The faithful within PKR whose loyalty to the party is unconditional. A mind set that inhibits alternative points of view. This is the flaw within PKR that will make it stumble even as it begins to walk.

No it is not me going PKR bashing again! Be rest assured that my bashing of UMNO and Barisan Nasional is  more relentless and sustained. What I do not want PKR to be are the debris of history  – leaving nothing tangible that could help our people and our nation to survive UMNO and Barisan Nasional.

This is what I wrote of Anwar on the 22nd of February in 2009 – almost three years ago. Nothing much has change – not Anwar and certainly not my opinion of him!

But what will haunt Anwar will be this: Too many friends and allies have now become his nemesis. Anwar listens but does not hear. He looks but does not see. What now Anwar?
