Pakatan Harapan Will Not Work with PAS

On Tuesday, I was very much encouraged to know that Pakatan Harapan had arrived at a decision to shut the door on cooperating with PAS in GE14.

This is in spite of the prospect of three cornered fights and even putting their dream of taking over Putrajaya at risk.

In the clearest sign that the opposition coalition is breaking off ties with fellow “opposition” party PAS, PH chairperson Mahathir Mohamad (right) categorically said no such cooperation would happen with the Islamist party at both federal and state levels.

This came after Selangor Menteri Besar and PKR deputy president Azmin Ali highlighted the disquieting fact that his party intend to persist in negotiating with PAS in order to avoid three-cornered fights.

We have been told that any multi-cornered fights in the general election will benefit the incumbent, in this case BN, due to the split in opposition votes. Supposedly.

The hallucinating PKR faction is trying very hard to keep its dream of working with PAS alive. Barely.

Dream on lah because it is not going to work.

The truth of the matter is, these PKR fantasizers actually worry that Selangor – presently under PKR – may swing back to BN. Men and women of little faith.

As far as I am concerned, it was a timely decision because the protracted dilly-dallying is taking its toll on everybody in PH and nerves are getting frayed as a result.
In any case, the PH leadership has finally bitten the bullet and taken on a singular position on PAS.

I am relieved.

I wish I can be in a position where I do not need to fly with AirAsia.

I was in Vietnam from August 31-September 03, 2017.

The Thursday flight to Ho Chi Minh City was delayed by two-and-a-half hours. And to make matters worse, when we landed at Tân Sơn Nhất International Airport, we stayed on the tarmac for another thirty minutes.

On the flight home, again it was delayed by an hour. Meaning I reached Kuala Lumpur at 1:00 AM this morning itself.

AirAsia, now everyone can be fashionably late!
