Abdul Rahman Dahlan – have you gone bonkers? Why are you scoring your own goal?

I want to ask the Director of Barisan Nasional Strategic Communications and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan – Have you gone bonkers? Why are you scoring your own goal?

On Saturday, Abdul Rahman rushed out a statement entitled: “TIME FOR LIM KIT SIANG TO RESIGN FROM POLITICS”.

From Abdul Rahman’s gangrenous perspective, he argued that I should resign from politics for the following reasons:

  1. I lack the confidence to take on Najib and BN by myself despite DAP being the largest political party in Pakatan, and am using Tun Mahathir who is not even a member of parliament to spearhead Pakatan.
  2. I am “pressed to the wall in desperation”, throwing away all principles.
  3. “Without any hint of shame”, I am propelling Mahathir as the “saviour” of Malaysia after attacking Mahathir for 22 years as Prime Minister of Malaysia.
  4. That I havd realised that I am “a huge liability to Pakatan Harapan”, and that I have “lost it” (Abdul Rahman meaning presumably that I have lost all sense of proper forward direction for DAP and Pakatan Harapan).

But something is very wrong with Abdul Rahman’s sense of judgement and priorities, for from UMNO/BN perspectives, these are the very reasons why I should remain in my position in Malaysian politics, as I such a useless decrepit old man whose word and deed is a great service to UMNO/BN!

Why then is Abdul Rahman so keen that I retire from politics, when he should be praying that I will remain in politics so that I can continue to be such a disastrous impact on DAP and Pakatan Harapan which can only immensely benefit the UMNO/BN.

For my part, I want Abdul Rahman Dahlan to remain as BN Strategic Communications Director for he is such a boon to Pakatan Harapan and such a bane to UMNO/BN!
