It is ironic how those in the Pakatan Harapan are lending their voice of approval over the meeting of the meeting between Mahathir Mohamad and Anwar Ibrahim.
Even Mahathir said that if he can work with Lim Kit Siang than he can work with Anwar Ibrahim.
However, when PAS and UMNO come together to discuss matters which are good for the nation then there is widespread panic and disdain from the DAP, Pakatan Harapan in general and Mahathir
It appears that it is OK for anyone and everyone to discuss areas of mutual cooperation with the exception of Umno.
It is obvious that the idea of the Umno and PAS cooperating sends political chills down the slithering backs of those who see this type of union as a death nail to any last ditched hopes they have for the 14th General Election (GE14).
However, while the DAP-led opposition fumes over PAS – Umno meetings, smiles and handshakes, they feel no distain toward the three Umno malcontents former Prime Minister Mahathir, former Kedah Menteri Besar Mukhriz and the former Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin who for years lambasted them; even though it is becoming clear day by day that those three malcontents have their own agenda which has nothing to do with the good of the people, but everything to do with their ambitions.
Here is a snippet: If Mahathir gets his son Mukhriz positioned as the eventual prime minister then the latter would be in the position to get his father’s pet crooked bridge project back on the table.
Mukhriz could even appropriately name the ‘crooked bridge’ after his father; calling it the ‘Crooked Tun Mahathir Bridge’.
As far as Muhyiddin is concerned; what he wants is the title of prime minister of Malaysia no matter how short the duration.
Then after all is said and done he can proudly wear the moniker of former prime minister as the deputy tag has left a nasty taste in his mouth.
However, Mahathir’s time table has been stalled as he has met set back after set as he fully realises that unseating Prime Minister Najib Razak is no simple matter and the man he wants to be the temporary prime minister has troubles of his own.
The above has forced Mahathir to act like a cornered animal that sees his only means of help is to call on someone who he refers to as being an immoral man.
It is also ironic that DAP-led opposition does not see the hypocrisy in their applauding Mahathir meeting Anwar Ibrahim and yet heavily criticising their former partner PAS meeting with Umno.
But then again that is what we have come to expect of the DAP-led opposition as they also did not now call for Lim Guan Eng to step down as Penang chief minister over a business impropriety allegation, but called for the prime minister to do so even though proven innocent.
When it comes to the opposition one thing is certain; they are consistent when it comes to hypocrisy!
