Abandon hope all ye who enter here.
Mount Hope is really Mount Doom, didn’t you know?
Lim Guan Eng has corruption charges pending against him.
As one of the demigods to earliest ascend the pinnacle of Mount Hope, Tokong is already giving the public a taste of how their just elected gomen is going to flex its muscles. Will his graft case be summarily thrown out of court? Go on, take a guess.
At the same press conference earlier today, the Harapan finance minister designate said that heads will certainly roll, including the MACC (anti-corruption agency) chief’s, for starters.
I see a conflict of interest in this stated intent of the incoming cabinet to “review” corruption cases against the Harapan politicians, particularly since one of the cases is Guan Eng’s own.
Vengeance is Pakatan’s, be afraid
Be very afraid.
In under 72 hours of coming to power, the Hope conclave has already given several hints on how they plan to exercise that awesome power of the state which they now wield.
Among the DAP parliamentarians to practise throwing their thunderbolts are YB Puchong Gobind Singh Deo (aspiring to be Law Minister, eh?) who aimed to decapitate sitting Attorney-General Apandi Ali, and YB Jelutong RSN Rayer’s parallel attempt to incapacitate TV3.
Fret not, there are plenty of newly minted VIPs who think like them.
“It’s hard to be gracious towards BN”
Harapan is replete with the most vindictive politicians out to exact vengeance. Their supporters are streaming through the floodgates too. One of them, Malaysiakini columnist Zan Azlee (above) proclaims, “It’s hard to be gracious towards BN”.
Yeah, we can see that. The last thing the jubilant mob is is gracious. On the contrary, volleys of venom hurled by the new executive rulers, who are wholly lacking in magnanimity, are already in abundance and in plain sight.
Given the revengeful attitude of the victorious New Hopers, it is equally tough on us the losing side to be gracious either.
