The people here are supposed to be antagonists. The guy in the sling says he was sent to jail based on false charges cooked up by the guy sitting beside him. Jailed for FIVE years or something. That is NOT something trifling or tiny.
Being locked up in jail even for FIVE DAYS on false charges is a pretty serious crime – by the perpetrator of the false charges.
But look at this picture (very recent I think).
They are all smiles. Except for that incredible woman-of-steel (whatever her many shortcomings are) in the tudung.
(I would like to digress a little. History will one day write about Wan Azizah as the epitome of the perfect, obedient, pious and long suffering wife.
Despite all the things I have said about her politics, I must record my sincere admiration for Wan Azizah’s absolute loyalty to her husband. It is almost unbelievable.
Allahuma solli alaikum Datin Sri. May Allah shower his support upon you for your tenacity and your commitment to your husband and your family.)
Ok, back to the picture. Wan Azizah is the only person in this picture who is not smiling. She just wants her husband back. In more ways than one.
I hear that Anwar Ibrahim is set to be released from jail around April next year. That is after deducting the usual 1/3 of the jail sentence. But it need not be so. They can always make him go full term.
Everyone inside this picture is desperate. Politics is the art of the possible.
Imagine a political union between UMNO – PAS – PKR. I have already discussed this possibility before. It will surely strengthen the BN.
Where will that place the Pakatan Harapan?
If there is going to be a union between UMNO – PAS – PKR it need not happen before the general elections.
It can even happen AFTER the results of the election are known.
As the stomach churns.
