Dateline: 16th September 2008

DSAI claiming that latest by 16th September 2008, Pakatan Rakyat will oust the present BN Government. And yes, I am taking this with a grain of salt too... But what about paklah & the gang? After all you made it easier for DSAI to boldly claim as such. The latest being the announcement of RMK-9 to be reviewed and all. No, the BN government should not take this claim lightly. You do not have the luxury like what we the people have. We can take this with a grain of salt. No antidote will help you. Think of something fast. Maybe what Dr. M said in hard talk BB World program last night could help you. Go and watch it!

Malaysian Insider has the story:

KOTA KINABALU, April 23 — By Malaysia Day, Pakatan Rakyat will form the new government. Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today said that he expected the crossover of Barisan Nasional MPs to take place before Sept 16.This was the first time that the defacto leader of the Opposition alliance has put a deadline to the collapse of the Abdullah administration. His choice of Malaysia Day is interesting given that today’s press conference was in Kota Kinabalu and he is due to visit Kuching soon. The people of Sabah and Sarawak have a special attachment for Sept 16 – the day they became part of Malaysia.By putting a deadline, Anwar is attempting to rattle further the Abdullah Badawi-led coalition already weakened by infighting in Umno and hamstrung by the difficulty MCA, MIC and Gerakan are having in reinventing themselves.But this gambit is also a double-edged sword. The former deputy prime minister is also putting his just regained credibility with Malaysians at stake. If Sept 16 comes and goes without incident, he can expect Malaysians to be more skeptical and questioning of anything he says in future.
